Friendly (almost too friendly) service and OK atmosphere, but food wasn't too good, average at it's best.

If you like Cuban or Latin food at a great tasting place, look no more. Many dishes all with a Latin flavors and spice. Good prices (for a NY restaurant). Latin music and flavor (atmosphere). Plates are big. Definitely a place to go when around midtown.

I had the privilege of visiting Havana recently and the only thing changed is the location. Food is still my go to spot for midtown Cuban food before I need to rush to penn station. I am a fan of red beans and the beans here are to die for. Still not sure how they make the rice so orange.... More

This restaurant was right opposite our hotel, so felt like it was the right choice after a long haul flight. Service with a smile and lovely specials recommended by the waiter.

I've visited this restaurant a few times this year for lunch with a colleague and each time the food has been great and the service fast and friendly. It's a little close quarters at the bar, but the happy hour deals look really good so we'll be bringing the rest of the office here soon!

My brother-in-law loves this restaurant, so I met him and my sister the other night for dinner. OMG it was out of this world. The food was great and the pitches of sangria are even better. Service was excellent. It is immaculately clean and has a very nice atmosphere. Prices were good, not overpriced. Will definitely go back again.

My girlfriends and I were on a Christmas trip in NYC and we tried Havna NY. The sevice was good, but the Cuban food was not authentic. The rice looked orange instead of yellow.

From the moment we entered the staff was welcoming, accommodating and attentive. The wait staff stayed on top of everything and made great recommendations. The food was of high quality and scrumptious. One of the highlights of this NYC visit.

We used to live in this place when it was across the street, but this was our first visit since it reopened in its new location. They'd just gotten their liquor license that day and were still stocking the bar, so my friend couldn't get her choice of cocktail accommodated. But the regular mojitos were on point. We got there...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
