The only bad thing about this place is the hard choice of what to order. Get an app and an entree, even if there are leftovers to enjoy the next day!

Wednesday August 4th, 2004 my Daughter and I took wife to the Cabana on Third Ave and 60th in Manhattan. I had been told by a friend that the food was great and I wanted to celebrate my wife?s birthday by taking them both to dinner. My friend was right the food was delicious, at that point the evening was very lovely, the waiters and waitresses sang happy birthday to my wife, and it was nice. However, after I had paid the check, I was told by the waitress that my tip was below standard and she told me that I had to pay her a $16 tip. Where I am from you don't cause a scene, so I paid her twenty dollars tip. Which totally ruined a perfect evening for me. Sincerely, M. Davis

You will not be seated at this place unless your whole party arrives, and if there isnt any room at the bar (which has about 4 stools) you'll be waiting outside!!! The place does have some great food though to make up for their rude waitresses.

Cabana offers a lively atmosphere decorated with a tropical motif. I've been there several times and have enjoyed the food, which is very nicely presented, particularly the appetizers. The prices are very reasonable as well. NYC needs more places like Cabana.

If you go, you must try the jerk chicken wings (my boyfriend and I are always tempted to lick the plate), the coconut shrimp (there's enough to have it as an entree if you're not that hungry), the arroz con pollo, the steak with chimmichurri sauce, and the ropa vieja. But really I've never had anything bad there (except maybe the flan, but I'm not a big flan fan to begin with).

Darling, it was great. I went on a date and we enjoyed ourselves. Good date place. The surroundings were very comfortable but a bit upscale compared to the local friday night spots.

This place is great, the atmosphere is great and so is the food and service. Very island like feeling with great food. Serving are of decent size and for New York they arent over priced like some nicer restaurants. there is almost always a wait no matter when you go, BUT it is well worth it. Oh and the Drink Jamaican me crazy is amazing.
