Amor Cubano
Romantic trappings like live salsa music, servers sporting traditional guayabera shirts and an intimate dark-wood dining room couldn’t compensate for unremarkable food at this uptown spot. Cuban steak arrived as a leathery, minuscule rectangle—the result of languishing in the pan beyond our order of medium. Desserts like a dense sponge of tres leches cake drenched with sweet condensed milk and blanketed by an unctuous frosting were a disappointment. This gritty stretch of East Harlem desperately needed a romantic eatery, but Amor Cubano didn’t spark our passion.

Amor Cubano has class! Thank you for providing a high level of service and professionalism. It is always a pleasure coming to this establishment. I brought a group of 37 and let me tell you, the food, service and atmosphere is so very special and perfect. They were ready when we arrived and they made me look very good. Gracias, gracias, gracias! Everyone really enjoyed it.

Amor Cubano is my favorite restaurant in the city due to its exquisite food and drinks (specially "Mojito") the professionalism of its staff, and its romantic and friendly ambient. I also love the live bands that play during the weekend. I always recommend this restaurant to my friends or any person who wants to experience the flavor of the Cuban culture.

El mejor restaurante en Harlem, nosotros somos de Veracruz Mexico y Veracruz es conocido por el mejor pescado frito pero cuando fui la primera vez a Amor cubano tome un riesgo en probar el pescado frito la verdad fue el mejor riesgo que he tomado en la vida es el mejor pescado frito que he probado en la cuidad de nueva york. Ya que estoy lejos de Veracruz un pescadito frito cubano me hace sentir como en casa!

Whenever i have a chance to stop by Harlem i must go to Amor cubano, ive never had cuban food that reminds me so much of my moms cooking. The ropa vieja and the lechon are so authentic. But the best part are the mojitos, people often say that the best mojitos are in Miami but that is because the havent tried the ones at Amor cubano! The service is amazing as well the servers, make me feel like i'm in my old neighborhood in cuba, always so friendly!
