Decent location within Ridge Hill complex. Good atmosphere, but would be better if lights were dimmed a bit more in bar area during the evening hours. Music was fantastic and added a very nice ambiance. Service was also good. We sat in the bar area...More

Friendly and inviting atmosphere with delicious food it is impossible not to love! The setting is also dim and intimate but not over crowded. Not many other restaurants similar to this in the area so it is truly a gem!

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.

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.
