We have a lot of special event celebrations so there is always something new and exciting for our guests to experience.

    Amazing restaurant. The food was wonderful and our waiter Alek made the evening special. The employees seemed like they were enjoying themselves as well and it made for a special anniversary celebration for my wife and I. We will be back with friends next time.

    The food was very good. Shrimp appetizer with grilled bread was excellent. Entrees of roast pork and coated chicken also very good. Drinks good. In today’s world it is hard to give a rating on value. Our lunch for 2 with 2 drinks, appetizer and 2 entrees was about $130 which doesn’t sound so good in retrospect. I had a $50 gift card so it didn’t really hit me until later that it was an incredibly expensive lunch. How do I describe the ambiance? Hippie/factory/retro? With rest rooms a long walk away in a different building. I enjoyed the experience but doubt I would rush back.

    Had a reservation for an earlier time and then changed it to 8:45 pm which was an option so I didn’t think there would be any issues. Celebrating my boyfriends birthday and as soon we sit down they tell us the kitchen/bar is closing and it’s last call. No “hi can I get you some water” nothing. The waitress leaves us with the menu to look at since we just sat down and comes back 2 min later to ask us what we wanted to order for food, when she hadn’t even taken our drink order at this point (within 5 min of sitting down). We told her we needed more time to look at the menu and she walked 3 feet back and stood there waiting for us to be ready. We decided it wasn’t worth that type of treatment when we would be spending decent money for his birthday dinner there. We got up and left, the waitress didn’t even say a word to us and simple waved her hand towards the door. Who does that? This was an extremely rude and terrible experience of customer service. Do yourself a favor, don’t go to this location, the one in the spectrum is better anyway.

    Felt very rushed. Our entrées arrived as we were taking our first bites of our appetizers. They offered to place the entrées under heat lamps while we finished our apps but we didn’t want our meal to sit so we just ate everything together. Food was under seasoned too. Then we were asked if we wanted to see the dessert menu as we were not even half way through eating everything. We could tell they wanted to flip our table as quickly as possible, which is upsetting when you are trying to have a nice night out. We were there for less than an hour.

    It's been a while (two years plus) since we last ate here. I miss the seared ahi that was my "go to" dish, but the ropa vieja shredded beef was delicious. Mojitos were excellent and the key lime pie for dessert a fitting end to a great meal. We just returned from a week in Hawaii and both of us felt like we were still on vacation for this meal.

    In the mood for Cuban Food! This spot is delicious 😋! I had the Paella a la Habana! The mixture of rice and see food was flavorful! My husband had the Media Luna and he was so happy! The Appetizer “The Taste of Havana” was on point with Croquetas y empanadas! The Pastelito was the Cherry on Top! Can’t never go wrong with chocolate cake and Cherries 🍒!

    This was my second visit. GREAT food and ambiance. Music way too loud though; hard to have a conversation. This is a bit disappointing as it is so easy to correct. Separately, I experienced excellent service and customer service on both visits. Prompt, friendly and attentive service. This last visit the staff quoted two different corkage fees, which were both different than the corkage fee I was quoted ~two weeks prior during my first visit (this place is nice, for sure, but hardly worthy of a $30 corkage fee. That's more then high end establishments in DTLA or Beverly Hills, so rather disappointing). But, when the manager learned of the three different price points, they acknowledged that their staff should be better informed, etc and the fee was waived. Again, the corkage fee is not aligned with the caliber of this restaurant whatsoever, but the manner in which this was handled was excellent. I will definitely be back when in the area, just hoping they can turn the volume down a bit!

    Made reservations… we were seated right away. We were greeted and attended to immediately. The cocktails were really good, some a little strong but still really good. The chicken empanadas with mango slaw was tasty and our entrees came out right after. Our filets were cooked as requested, the chimichurri sauce was delicious. I ordered the bananas flambé… sooooo good. I never felt rushed, the staff was very attentive. Was there as the sun went down and you could then see all the candles lit up, so pretty.

    For the price you are paying for a dinner plate you should be able to substitute a side for a side. Had to order an additional one because I don’t like french fries with my steak and wanted garlic mash. Steak was just Ok. Definitely not worth the price.

    Food was fantastic & service was great! The meal was rushed though. It seemed odd that the restaurant offered 8:30pm & 8:45pm reservations but then shut down the kitchen at 8:45pm. It would have been much more enjoyable if we didn't have "5 minutes" to place the entire order before the kitchen closed for the night.

    I love Habana! I ordered a Pina Colada and it was delicious!!! I had to have 2!! 😁 Their empanadas are amazing! I ordered their crispy chicken which is my favorite entree on the menu. Service was good with the exception of the server being gone for long periods of time. I wish she would have been more attentive. Overall I'm coming back!
