Staff was very friendly. We were there late around 2:00 PM for lunch. The service was painfully slow even with only a few people in the restaurant. It took at least 10 minutes to pay the check.

Even with a reservation you will have to wait, once they seat you you will understand why this place is always packed. Food, live music and drinks are great. Service is ok but could be better. Great place overall.

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.
