About

Zona de Cuba uses humble, simple ingredients that are authentically Cuban and widely used within the Spanish Caribbean to provide an elevated experience for the senses: taste, smell, sight, touch, and of course, hearing, with a mix of Cuban and Caribbean rhythms, will be engaged for an unforgettable Cuban and Caribbean experience right at home in New York City.

Zona provides a unique experience that transports you to the comedor at abuela’s house as the whole family sits at the dining table, delighting in their grandmother’s home cooking. Yet, at the same time, we elevate those humble dishes to the highest level. At our sala, you’ll enjoy great conversations and colorful drinks that will make our lounge area make you feel right at home. That home sits in a mystical place in the Cuba, of course!

I celebrated my birthday with friends and family and we are still talking about the delicious food and awesome service. The only thing that I was a little bothered by is that they had a dj and a band but they played mostly spanish music. I understand that its a Cuban restaurant but there was a mixed crowd so people like myself did not understand the music. If they mix it up a little bit with the music this place would be even more awesome.

I made reservations for 9pm It was my birthday and I went with a party of 6 we waited waited and waited for over 2 hours and never got a table so we ended up leaving management was horrible service was horrible and it was over all embarrassing what’s the point of making reservations if you’re not going to be seated for the time you’re suppose to be reserved? Vallet parking was paid for nothing I would NEVER recommend anyone to come here worst piece of S**t of service I’ve ever experienced!

I missed my reservation by 20 mins. I know that was my fault. We were told by the hostess that our table was given up because we were late and that we would have to wait until another table opens up. We waited, an hour passed by still no table, 2hours we asked again and they said in another hour, then 3hours passed and we just left. We were never given a table, there were groups that walked in after us that were already seated before us. It was definitely our fault that we were late but we were mislead into believing we would be seated at some point and that wasn’t okay. I would have preferred honesty from the very beginning to make other plans moving forward.

This place was so great! The food was delicious. Our waiter was super cool. The manager kept walking around asking everyone how everything was going. There was a slight error on one of our appetizers and he bought us a new empanada. The drinks...OMG!
I can't wait to go back.

We arrived late and were really anxious as we thought we would have an issue with our reservation. The host a gentleman in the front was very gracious and friendly and seated us. The young hostess I wish I knew her name long straight black hair was so sweet and smiled the entire time. The ambiance was super cute felt very tropical. The views are nice you forget where you are. The food was good my coco mojito was good. Overall great time will definitely be back. The $20 valet parking was a bit steep.

Amazing food and environmental. I was looking for something different out of Washington Heights area. Zona de Cuba is the perfect place to change that routine and chaos from the Heights.

Amazing ambiance and service, added touch, they asked if it was a special occasion, I let them know it was my birthday and they brought out 3 complimentary glasses on champagne for the party of 3. Nice touch.

My friends and I really enjoyed the time at Zona de Cuba. The food was delicious and the passion fruit mojito pitcher we ordered was very good too. This was my second time in a month visiting Zona de Cuba and I definitely would recommend to all my friends. I would suggest to make a reservation ahead of time as my fist visit was not as pleasant but only because I didn't make a reservation and had to wait standing up at the bar.

I had an AMAZING experience! The staff were super professional and extremely flexible and accommodating! We had the BEST waiter ever, Nikko (I believe his true name is Ahmed) he was attentive, without being overwhelming and made great recommendations for both doors and drinks. I work in a customer service environment and it’s really challenging to find people who are passionate about the customer experience. If I were in hospitality I would’ve definitely trie to recruit him... please KEEP him. I hope you guys make him feel appreciated, he’s a gem!
