Editorial review from GrubHub 3/16/2013

Ropa Vieja was amazing. Empanadas were a bit bland. Rice and beans were good, as were sweet plantains. Overall Pretty good food, will definitely be ordering again for the Ropa Vieja! more

Superb dining 4/25/2010

I couldn't have picked a better restaurant to go to for my out of town dining. I've never had Cuban food but it was small and intimate and had the authenticity any cultural restaurant should. The waitress knew each dish very well and was able to make great food suggestions. I would recommend anyone to go to this restaurant for good food, drinks, and music because they will not be disappointed. Oh did I say wonderful Mojitos. Pros: Mojitos, music, friendly service Cons: None more

Romantic and Fun 1/22/2009

When I go to a restaurant I usually don't come home and write a review but in this case I felt that it was totally worth my free time, which trust me, is not very abundant, I loved the place, it is cozy, romantic and fun at the same time and the food was simply delicious and reminded me of home. I do not drink liquor but I enjoied my wine, they have a very good seletcion. My wife likes sweet drinks so she tried the sangria and loved it. We had Camarones al ajillo, the only problem with that dish is that it is soo good you could end up eating only that and missing the rest of the menu! I also recommend the Pargo Frito. I am thinking of taking my wife again for Valentine's Day. Pros: Live music, great atmosphere Cons: It could get crowded on weekends so make sure to get a reservation more

Cozy, fun restaurant with great food and staff 1/3/2009

My boyfriend and I decided to try this place out a few weeks ago. We were extremely happy with the food and service. The staff is very friendly and the food is delicious. We were completely silent at our first meal there because we were enjoying the food so much! I don't know Cuban food that well but I know a great meal. The Lechon Asado and the Barbacoa chicken are great and so are the empanadas. We enjoyed our time there we decided to go there for new years. Food was great, fun atmosphere and good company! The mojitos are fantastic too! more

Best Cuban in NYC 10/12/2008

Having been to Versaille in Little Havana, Miami, I didn't think a New York Cuban could ever be up to snuff with their mojitos, black beans, and cafe con leche. Amore Cubano is officially the best Cuban (real Cuban, not trendy fusion) in the city. The service was friendly and outstanding. Everything from a simple soup and cabbage salad to Vaca Frita and staple pork dishes was out-of-this-world. We even got comp dessert: flan and a bread pudding, also amazing. The cafe con leche was superb. I'm rarely left gushing after a meal, but I really didn't know what to say to our smiling server after heaping praise for about an hour. Good enough to come for lunch and stay for dinner. Pros: Best Cuban in the city, service Cons: Too far from my house more

Owner Message

  • Live music and other acts by the staff at this Cuban Restaurant are just some things to look out for. Vivan Baquero and Maricela Calcines, two Cuban immigrants, are the staple to the Kitchen. The Food is remarkable but the ambiance is something else. You won't be disappointed.

Editorial

  • Cuban restaurant offers a taste of the tropics with dishes like stuffed yuca, paella and, of course, a Cuban sandwich.
