Cuban
Cuba is located in a historic street in the Greenwich Village reminiscence of any street in Old Havana. It exudes the aroma and flavor of an authentic Cuban restaurant. The romantic milieu of Cuba effortlessly transports you from Manhattan to Cuba. The rhythmic palpitations of salsa, son Cubano, and the extraordinary sense of exotic dishes permeate the air. For years, Cuba Restaurant has been capturing the spirit of Old Havana with authentic
cuisine, strong signature mojitos, and the team behind Cuba, including Executive Chef Mario Garcia. As a result, Cuba restaurant is like a family, their loyalty and satisfaction directly translating to the guest experience, creating
an atmosphere of fun, friendliness and all-around Cuban hospitality that is unparalleled. Americans have fallen in love with Latin food, music, and culture. Cuba has them all under one roof, offering a singular and charming escape to its own Little Havana on Thompson Street.

Always my go to for brunch. Loved the food, the staff and the restaurant in general.
Shame they dropped bottomless to 1 hour rather than 1.5 - I dined with one other person and it worked great but for a bigger group the time might not be enough to enjoy a full meal. Having said that, will still bring all my out of town guests as a first resort.

We chose Cuba to celebrate my partner’s birthday. From the moment we arrived our experience was awesome! Great seating in a semi-private room, food service and quality were IMPECCABLE and the staff even brought over a birthday flan to help up celebrate! Cuba is (and always will be) a go to for us!

My family and I had a great time celebrating my sister's birthday at Cuba. The food was great the ambiance was nice with low lighting. We were able to sit in a semi-private space. The staff were also very friendly and accommodating. I definitely plan to go back again.

Food was very good, being of Hispanic background I expected a little bit more flavor but certainly quite good. Service was attentive and courteous. We dined downstairs which was better for us since it was less crowded and quieter but not a great entry the stairs are steep and it gives off a very gloomy feeling.That being said I would certainly go again and recommend it as well

Overall, a very nice experience. Service was good and food was very good. I had the grilled octopus. It was very tasty and not chewy. My wife had the pan fried snapper which she said was excellent. For appetizers, we had the chorizo and shrimp in garlic sauce. While the chorizo was excellent, I would not order the shrimp again.

Outdoor set up is awesome, you have your own little room to enjoy your time! Food was amazing but service was very very slow. They had a big party so they were busy accommodating them which is fine, but an hour for food seems a bit long. The salmon and coconut rice was worth the wait though!

The Cuban shredded meat dish, I have forgotten its name, but it ends with the word Ropa, was hard to chew and did not have much meat flavor because of the juice on top of it. The Tre Leches dessert did not come close to the best version that I have had, but it was good, although not very sweet. Very nice atmosphere here, I particularly liked dining under what was made to look like a tent.

I visited on a Saturday evening w/ my husband and mom. Its a small restaurant with a very nice quaint ambiance. Waitress was very attentive. I ordered a drink that was heavily overdone on the rum and requested to replace with another drink which the staff happily did. We ordered the calamari dish which my husband loved but I didn't care for-didn't like the sweetness of the balsamic & plantains on top. My husband ordered the oxtail dish, my mom ordered the fish paella & I ordered the skirt steak. All the dishes were delicious but my steak was overcooked to well done when I requested med-rare. For some reason it took another 40 minutes after our appetizer was brought out for dinner to arrive. As I did not want to wait longer for the steak to be redone I c/o about the long wait time &asked them to take the steak off our check which they accommodated. Even though it was over cooked it still tasted delish. Would defiantly go back again.
