Love the festive atmosphere and great service here. Food was overly salty and we were disappointed not to have muddled lime and any fresh mint in our mojitos. We still enjoyed our evening though.

Was so soo... food was ok... nothing exceptional..needs more servers or employees to make the restaurant ran smoothly. The attendant that seated us didn’t give us enough chairs and I have to ask for additional chairs. The waiter took a long time to come to our table. It was a busy place I get it. My flank steak was too rare for medium rare. The additional appetizer took along time to come. It came when the last person was almost done eating.

It was amazing! I brought my boyfriend here last night for his birthday and it was an amazing experience. Delicious drinks, appetizers and entrees! We will definitely be coming back! Extra kudos as well to the host who told my boyfriend happy birthday, well as our waiter who was also informed and brought him out a dessert! I was so glad they remembered :)

We celebrated our one year wedding anniversary at Habana! The ambiance was exactly what I was looking for! It was so romantic with all the candles and decor. Even though there were many people we still felt like we had the privacy and intimate space for our special dinner. The food was amazing! We especially loved the empanadas!

We have Friendsgiving dinner. I felt like the price of the dish was not adequate for the size of the dish. I had the Thanksgiving dish for reference. The drinks were 110%. I'll give it another try.

My first time for Cuban food. We went there Thanksgiving evening but didn't have turkey. However, everything we did have was great including chicken empanadas, slow-roasted pork, jambalaya, shredded beef, black beans, and salmon. Really, really good.

we went for thanksgiving dinner and it was so good! the cuban influence in the traditional turkey dinner was truly memorable and absolutely delicious. I was just a little disappointed we got shoved against a boring brown wall (the most boring spot in the place!) when at the time there were many tables available that would have made the experience truly amazing. our waiter was also quite dismissive and not helpful, as I had ordered a side of stuffing because the turkey dinner was described as the sides including mashed potatoes and corn bread, however I was served stuffing with my extra order of stuffing (no corn bread). I totally understand a menu adjustment, but the least the waiter could’ve done was inform me of this change so I didn’t spend an additional $10 on a side that I was already going to be provided..

My family and I decided to try this restaurant out for Thanksgiving. Since we didn’t feel like cooking this year. The food was amazing! I had the paella and the plantains! So delicious! The ambiance was cool too. Great music playing and the restaurant was so cute. Would definitely go back again to try the full menu this time since they had a slight different menu for Thanksgiving.

Just going to say this first. Will definitely be coming back. The drinks, the food and the service was amazingly great. They were super attentive and made sure we had a great time. We were there for my wife’s birthday and we loved the classic look of this restaurant. You’ll feel welcomed and took a trip to Cuba.

Our server was kind, but the restaurant was understandably very busy for a Thursday night so there were some delays. The tables are all pretty close together which made it difficult to get up to go to the restroom. The drinks and food were delicious, it's definitely pricey but worth the splurge. We had a great time, and I would definitely go back in the future.

Just a lovely lunch spot on the deck w/ clients. The food was outstanding (shrimp in spicy creamy sauce). And the waiter found out it was my birthday and brought a piece of cake w/ a sparkler on it. Classy move! I regret that I live in CT. If I were local, I would definitely frequent Habana. No reservations about recommending it to others in the Costa Mesa area
