Fast delivery, everything was packaged very carefully. The plantains were the highlight of my meal. Unfortunately the 1/2 roasted chicken was dry and rather mediocre. Beans were spot on. For the price and portion size you are better off going to Sophie's.

food was great...but the delivery...well, even though I gave $4 on a $16 order, they didnot take care of the delivery.
Everything ended up smashed on one side of the delivery container

ordered the chicken and rice lunch combo. The chicken came mixed with the rice in a small portion, and there was not much chicken. Not worth the $14 at all.

I've had delivery issues two or three times in the past until I just decided to stop ordering from them (always thought the food was good, but they would take twice as long as estimated and would forget items). It's been probably over a year...decided to give them another try...
Ordered the Ropa Vieja. Boy! have they gotten stingy. It's pretty much green peppers with a couple of shreds of meat, got about two (plastic) spoonfuls of beans, the rest is the "sauce" it comes in. On the bright side, the delivery time was good...
But, yeah, time to give up on them I guess.

I don't know about the previous reviews, but in my opinion, this place is amazing! My food took the expected 30 minutes or so and it arrived hot and perfectly packaged for a delivery. All of my utensils were included and they even provided me with hot sauce!
The food itself is the best Cuban I've had in a very long time. I love me some Tina's and Sophie's but Havana Central has a home cooked feel to it. Get the Roast Pork lunch special. The meat is cooked perfectly and is seasoned deliciously. I got it with the yellow rice and red beans. The red beans are super delish! Enjoy! :o)

Just phoned the restaurant to complain about an order - they did not follow my comments nor had the courtesy to make me aware "special request over Seemless are not accepted", so instead they made me wait over an hour for my food and got the " pleasant " surprise of not getting what I wanted... the person on the phone could simply not care less!!! This my was my first time ordering there and certainly my last too

Will never order here again! I have ordered many times and the food ALWAYS takes over an hour to arrive. I work 2 avenues away...shouldn't take that long. But I love their food so I just deal with long delivery times. However the last two times I have ordered, the food has taken 1 1/2 hours to arrive and it was pretty much cold and inedible. Who wants cold rice and beans, anyway? The kicker is that this time it not only took forever and arrived cold, but absolutely no condiments were sent with it! No fork. No spoon. No salt/pepper. No napkins. NOTHING! So I waited for 1.5 hours to get food that is cold AND that I cant even eat! Fantastic.
When I called, the mgr had an attitude and asked what i suggested as a solution and asked "you don't have extra utensils sitting around your office?". So i am done with this place.

Its been almost an hour and half and my food still hasn't shown up. This is lunch and it should be timley. Havana Central isn't cheap, which makes paying the cost here challenging when the company doesn't handle the delivery
Posted 2 years ago by Rashad R.
Food is great. But they sent the wrong sandwich with an order today - and when they sent the replacement it was.....the exact same (wrong) sandwich. They don't seem to know their own sandwiches. Guy on the phone argued that it was correct one even though it clearly was not. Spoke with a nice manager who issued a refund. But wow, they need to get their ordering system straight, it seems. Not worth the aggravation.

I'm not a fan of their picadillo but the crispy shredded beef with the egg atop the white rice is yummy. There are numerous dishes I've enjoyed but can't recall as I've been dining here for years now. I love the corn and when you eat at the restaurant everything seems to taste great! Sangria is a plus!The delivery time is not so bad and my job is about a mile away.

Fine food. Wish the black beans and rice had been mixed before. You end up wasting all the black sauce from the black beans.
Posted 2 years ago by charles s.
I ordered the Savory Cuban Ground Beef - picadillo, and it was the worst picadillo I've ever had, and I'm not a picky eater. The quality of the meat was really bad and I'm pretty sure they added something other than meat to bulk the dish. It was so bad I actually ate a little and threw out the rest. The rice was ok, the plantains were greasy and the beans were overcooked. Like the other poster said, the container of the rice was half empty. Very disappointed, will not order again.

Well, the Cubano was good but didn't care too much for the Chicken sandwich. But here's the deal, when they delivered they forgot half my order. Only one sandwich and forgot my soda. I was very upset but when I called they said they would send the entire order again as well as a free dessert. Well, about 20 mins later, either a manager or hostess, not a delivery guy, brought my food. All there with free dessert and an apology. Wow!! I never would've expected that in New York City! Kudos to these guys for the awesome customer service!! Fixed a bad situation really well!!

Called a few mins after order to make change in beans selection and told it was on the way already. Showed up 30 mins later. Ordered steak and onions and got shredded beef, onions and a ton of hot peppers, which I can't eat. So for $25 I've got barely a meal. Too bad..

Took 2+ hours to get my food for lunch time, with an advertised estimated delivery of 1 hour (60 minutes). Called in to find out the status and was placed on hold more than 3 times til I finally got an answer that delivery guy was on his way and should be there in 10 minutes. They should update their delivery time from 60 minutes to 130 minutes.

Update: haven't started ordering on a regular basis, but the few times that I have since last review, food arrived on time, hot and tasted good.
Ordered roast chicken with plaintains on 1/22/10, I'm only a few blocks away, just couldn't get out of the office... Order arrived an hour and a half late, food was ice cold and inedible... Called Havana Central and spoke with Daniel whom I'd spoken to earleir to try and find my order, which at that point was an hour late. He appeared to be genuine when I politely told him that my food arrived an hour and a half late and ice cold reminding him I'm only a few blocks away and that I was only able to eat the small salad included with the chicken. I further told him that I undesrtand this type of thing happens and I'm letting them know as a courtesy so they can fix the delivery problems going forward. HE then offered to refund me the lunch. To date that order has not been refunded. I'd like to reiterate I never asked for a refund he offered it, and based solely on that it should be honored. Food is ok, but I won't be recommending them anymore.

Worst place ever no good customer service. I ordered a dish they called and it wasn't available so I ask what was and it was a cheaper dish then what I had paid for. I asked if I could get another side since I still had some credit and it was now going to be short .50 cents and instead is just saying sure since we don't have your original dish we will wave the difference of .50 cents they said no. Really good way to keep a customer. Sad when I finally got the food it was bland and seemed to be left overs from the day before not fresh.

Ordered the pineapple chicken dish. Worst chicken that I ever ate!!! Ended up eating just the rice and beans which was ...okay at best

The quality of their food is slowly deteriorating. I used to love eating here and not it seems that it is moving away from its authenticity in order to meet the growing demand of customers. I ordered the Palomilla (steak and onions) and my steak was swimming in oil, didn't appear to have been sauteed at all . Just poached in oil. The best thing was the rice and beans I got.

Yucca - tasted like old french fries, mealy.
Crispy chicken - literally 4 tiny pieces with almost no meat on the bone, hardly crispy!
Corn appetizer - mushy, tasted old
Fried Plantains - ditto to above
Chocolate cake - good but why did we pay SEVEN dollars for the smallest sliver ever?
That's all I got - clearly never ordering from here again.

Absolutely loved the steak sandwich. Loaded with thick strips of steak cooked to perfection along with a generous helping of onions, this was truly the meal I wanted on a very busy day. The potato wedges are also crispy and delicious. This is my first time to order here, but certainly won't be my last.

First time I ordered from here on SeamlessWeb, and likely the very last. They "lost" my order - I called after an hour of it not showing up (received confirmation), went through 3 people before a manager got on the phone to tell me that she was sorry that the system wasn't working on their end, and I had to ask them to make sure that I wasn't charged.
In contrast, I have ordered from a restaurant on SW that mucked up on their side - they immediately sent out the order, credited the charge back to my account, and even threw in dessert on top of that.
I hate being "that guy", but they made absolutely no effort to win me back as a customer.

Horrible. I will not be ordering from here again.. The empanadas were soggy and salty. The chicharrone de pollo were absolutely disgusting, small little pieces of thighs (that was more bone than chicken) that were burnt with absolutely no flavor. The worst cuban food I've ever had. Even the rice & beans were bad. Way too commercial.
Posted 6 years ago by Clarissa M.
The food from Havana is great however much to my disappointment the beans portions has been less than half per container. It has gone to the extent where less has become the norm. In the past I used to received almost to the top, now I receive LESS than half. If portions are being decreased than so should the price however, the prices seem to be going up. To add additional injury the chicken that I been receiving thru my deliveries has been practically burned as well as hard and dry (dry to the point where it looks orange). I'm sure management may regulate the quantity of beans however burn & dry chicken leaves me pondering. As much as I enjoy Havana's meals and regardless of the beans portion I have maintained my patronage with the establishment. However, I will be compelled to take my business elsewhere if service doesn't improve. I shouldn't have to dine at the establishment in order to have good service. What once drew me to Havana Central was their tasty beans but if everytime I get less and less. I'm better of leaving it to fantasy and order my meals from somewhere else.
Regretfully this email isn't to compliment the establishment but to hope that there's a improvement for those who order online.
