Description: Havana Central evokes the 1950s golden era of Cuba, capturing Havana’s heyday as the world’s most tantalizing playground. Through its festive ambiance, vibrant décor and mouth-watering food, dining at Havana Central is like taking a mini vacation. Executive Chef Stanley Licairac’s traditional dishes like Vaca Frita, Ropa Vieja and Arroz con Pollo are an unmistakable celebration of Cuban cuisine. The cocktail list includes the best Mojitos and Sangrias in New York; the wine list is filled with Latin American favorites. Havana Central Times Square opened in 2005, followed by Havana Central Upper West Side in 2007. Hours and menus vary by location.

The food was o.k. Nothing to write home about. The service was slow and the wait staff was friendly.. Very, very noisy and even hard to have a conversation at one's table.

Never had Cuban food before but decided to give it a try after hearing good things about Havana Central. Located in the Ridge Hill Shopping Center there is plenty of parking. I had the Mofongo with Braised Beef, Onions and Peppers, it was delicious. My husband had the Crispy Shredded Beef which was even better. The décor and music make it feel like you are in the islands on vacation. The server Rudy was very pleasant. We will definitely be back.

Food is just OK - would not go back. The SERVICE was great! Our waitress couldn't be any nicer, everyone who works there is friendly.

The Coconut Shrimp was greasy and the shrimp must have been frozen not fresh catch of the day. The Skirt Steak was good and cook the way we wanted it but the sauce on the side you can do without.

The music is LOUD!! Can't hear yourself think, now i llove Cuban music but they need to lower the sound. Also the front of the restaurant was freezing we needed to move to the middle of the place to keep warm.

All and all, once was enough.

I sat outside with family and we enjoyed the sampler appetizer, especially the corn on the cob. The Mofongo is good and the Cuban sandwich is not bad. The stuffed Avocado also is pretty good.The only complaint that I have is that wait staff are really slow but they are very nice.
