We were a party of 9 and selected Habanero's because we were able to make an online reservation through Open Table. We received email and text notifications that our reservation was confirmed. Habanero's did not honor our Open Table reservation. After speaking with the hostess and manager - they both explained that they don't use Open Table. After the lobby was emptied our party was sat 30 minutes past our confirmation time even though there were tables available.

Our server did a great job taking food and drink orders. Non-bar drinks were delivered right away but anyone that ordered from the bar waited 15-20 minutes for their drinks. Most of the folks in our group liked the food.

If I was the manager I would have honored the reservation and I would not have shared with the customer that they have issues with Open Table - I would have taken care of that behind the scenes.

I always enjoy going to habaneros. I booked this on open table with a party of six. When I got there I told the hostess that I was there with a reservation for a party of six. She said we do not take reservations for less than 12 people. I told her that I had booked it on OpenTable and she told me that they still only take reservations for 12 or more. I said if that’s the case why doesn’t someone update OpenTable so people know the policy. She did not have an explanation for that.

Is there anyway that open table can contact habaneros and get this straightened out so that this is not a problem again. We did not have to wait long but I would’ve been very upset if I would’ve went in there and had to wait an hour because I thought I had a reservation for six people at 7:30 PM!

I hadn't been to Habanero's for awhile. The food this time was not up to par, not bad but not great. My biggest disappointment was the guacomoli (sorry for the misspelling) , it was so spicy I couldn't eat it. Maybe you should offer a less spicy version.
I was happy to see the table was all set up prior to our arrival. The service was very good. We didn't feel rushed.

We had a large group of 13. They had the tables ready when we got there. The service is worth 6 stars!

We had 6:30pm reservations for our party of only 8 people & got seated right away. At 7:30pm we still had not received our food. We paid for our drinks and cheese dip and left. Manager had NO explanation as to why the kitchen was so backed up. ALL tables around us that had been seated much later than us - had all gotten their food. As soon as we requested our check VOILA our food was in the window and ready. Too late. We left.

Open table was an easy way to reserve a table. Upon arrival, table was already available. Very pleased!

Love the fact that they use Open Table. It's so frustrating in the digital world when restaurants don't accept online reservations, especially for a larger party. We had 8 for dinner and basically would have had to wait for an hour to get a table anywhere else. Thanks Habanero's for doing this!
