The food is really good and they have outdoor dining in the Summer which is really nice. At night I think they have dancing but the place is really small for dancing. But go for the food, either lunch or dinner. Very, very good.

Located in Ridgehil mall,this place is the perfect place to wine down and have dinner after a day filled with shopping. The music is just right as they usually play popular Latin music. Their ribs are really good

Two weeks ago we went to Legoland with my daughter and grandkids. We then looked for a place to eat. We found this restaurant Havana Central in Yonkers NY. We decided that dinner would be much better there than a pizzeria or burger place. We were directed to a table, given menu's and we ordered beverages. A few minutes later... More

The food was great, the music and ambiance as well...the young ladies at the bar...they need a little help in customer service..we ordered drinks from one young lady and they were great...after about 15 minutes we told her we were ready to place our food order. She responded.."you can place your order with anyone else, I'm waiting on the tables... More

I have visited multiple establishments, the decor is an escape, the food is a reality of the this. No love, I need to feel it, when you cook spanish food. This is why we just combine that earth has to offer. Garlic, oregano, onions, peppers, tomatoes, cilantro. Lacking these. Disappointed.

Great Cuban cuisine with a modern twist. The plantain chips with black bean dip are morish and their cocktails are really good. Happy hour from 4-7 and live latin music nights and salsa dancing!! Great food and great atmosphere.

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.
