    We eat here often, we love the service, and food. We had a new waiter who was fun and very knowledgeable about the new food choices. Everything he suggested was delicious. I had a glass of wine here last month and I've been trying to find it with no luck. I showed him a picture of the bottle and he actually found it at a local liquor store. Great service. See you next month!

    Our waiter was Jude. He has helped us before. He was outstanding as always. He makes us feel comfortable. He is the best waiter we have ever had in my 89 years.

    We were seated on the patio and had nobody around us so that was nice. We were a party of 5 but sat at a table for 7 so it was a little big and too many chairs which felt odd. I think because we were outside our server forgot about us from time to time because Service felt slower than normal. However all food was great and enjoyed the ambiance.

    We had a lovely birthday celebration seated in the cozy and intimate bar at lunchtime. The servers (we had 2) were excellent and did everything imaginable to make it a very special experience. I have been a guest many times, but it was my friend's first time. She was absolutely delighted with the food, the ambience and the service. She voted it her favorite birthday lunch this year, and she had many! Thank you so much for making this a very special birthday celebration!!

    This was our first time to Habana in Costa Mesa. I loved the outside patio setting area. It was well decorated with a Cuban feel. Our server was very attentive. We enjoyed the drink menu and the Mojito Monday special drinks. They did not skimp on the alcohol. I had the salmon and it was the best I have ever had! The others in our party had the ahi tuna and they were very impressed. We plan to return often. A veery impressive place, all the way around!

Discover Orange County

Located in the sunny state of California, Orange County is known for its many tourist attractions. Considering that Orange County consists of 34 cities and is more populous than 21 U.S. states, you can bet the attractions include not only the best surfing beaches, the Balboa ferry, and sites like Knott’s Berry Farm and Disneyland but also a huge selection of restaurants. The warm climate enhances the growth of fresh, organic vegetables and fruits, which can be found in many restaurants. Although iconic California foods like Rocky Road ice cream and sourdough bread may have originated in other CA cities, they’re also popular in Orange County. Fast food places, drive-ins, and Korean barbecues are popular in this area, too. Smoothies in the summer, however, take the cake.
