Fun place! Have been to Havana Central in NYC and Yonkers. Good food but not always great food. However, the drinks are always good. If you go when they have live music, you will never be disappointed! Definitely make reservations for dinner.

I can only say that the night I was there they had a live band. I think it was a Friday night. I'm sure you could call them and ask.
