We went to this restaurant tonight for my birthday and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We started with the empanadas, the cheese one and the pork one were delicious, the chicken one was a bit dried out. I had the braised pork entree with mashed yuca,...More

The restaurant has a lovely decor. The menu is ample. We ordered the Cuban sandwich which was lovely to look at but had very little flavor. The soup was delivered cold. Not a place I'm interested in returning to for a meal.More

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.
