Cuban
Habana was established in 1995. We serve Nuevo Latino cuisine which includes some Cuban and Spanish classics. We are open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. We have both indoor and outdoor seating. There is a fun and romantic atmosphere with candle light throughout the entire restaurant. We have a lot of special event celebrations so there is always something new and exciting for our guests to experience.

    When I made the reservation through OpenTable, I notified them that we were coming for her birthday. When I arrived, I let the staff know it was my son-in-law‘s birthday. Right before dessert. I reminded the staff that it was my son-in-law‘s birthday. When the bill came, and nothing ever happened, like a dessert with a candle, or any kind of celebration at all from the restaurant, I talked to the staff, and they said “we don’t do anything for birthdays“. Don’t you think it would’ve been nice if they let me know that before hand? At any of the three requests?!! I was very embarrassed, and felt foolish in front of my son-in-law, and it made me sad that he wasn’t celebrated. I would never go there again.

    Appetizers are small and over priced. The entrees are amazing and a good value. The server was very friendly but spilled water all over my dress. I would have expected a manager to stop by and comp my entree at least. As a restaurant manager myself this is how we would handle this situation.

    Amazing experience! We had Pablo as our server and he was exceptional. From his recommendations to accommodating and making sure we were enjoying everything. I don’t usually leave reviews but this one was well worth it. If you’re looking for authentic Cuban cuisine this is your place! 10/10, everything!

    Our waiter Jose was fantastic and went out of his way to ensure we had the best time and experience. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly at every point from entry, to bus boy, waiter, manager, other servers and helpers including the bartender. I would absolutely go again. The food was incredible and the drinks were great with a twist of something different.

    My boyfriend and I have been here a few years ago for new years dinner and it was fantastic. This time it wasn’t so great food quality was ok for the price and not the same, the ambience has changed and overall was just ok our server was so kind and attentive to our needs, Would comeback for the great service but not for the food or ambience.

    Celebrating Christmas a few days late with family due to work schedules. Quiet, easy to hear each other, the place was clean. Nice lighting inside and out. Everyone was pleased with their food and drinks were continuously refilled even after we closed out. We hung out to talk for awhile.

    Great food. Great service. Got a nice booth indoors. Ambiance was great except for a very loud and oblivious party that had everyone's head turning. Not the staff's fault, but detracted from what otherwise would have been an almost perfect dining experience. Greeters were lovely. Staff was attentive. Food presentation was highly artistic. Good experience. Ask to sit outside for better ambiance and more noise dispersion.

    Perfect ambiance for an intimate gathering or date night. Food and drinks were both excellent. Husbands paella was amazing! I went for something on the lighter side and opted for the papaya and chicken salad with capers. Exactly what I wanted. Very refreshing and light. Mixed green salad with chicken salad (I actually had thought it would maybe grilled chicken like most salads not actual chicken salad on a salad which this was way better). I loved it. I hade the Boysenberry mojito and my husband ordered the rum old-fashioned and both hit the spot.
