We visited the restaurant prior to attending the Van Gogh exposition for my daughter’s birthday. This is our 3rd time visiting the restaurant and we were extremely disappointed. Our reservation was for 2 pm and the hostess was not ready for us. The dining room was visibly busy but the floors were dirty with napkins and dirt on the floor. Really disappointing and no one seemed to be freshening up the area.

We were seated in the lounge area which our family of 5 were the only ones. It took server a good 10 minutes to acknowledge us. We asked for the house sample and it was a miss. Some items were warm and the others, such as the tostones/patacones, pork belly and the plantains were cold and old. When pointing this out to the server, she switched it for sweet plantains which were also just like warm, not fresh. After that we decided against ordering dinner. Played it safe requesting other tapa items such as octopus and potato balls. The octopus which was supposed to be grilled, was cold. The potato balls were warm, hardly any meats.

$180 dollars after of drinks and appetizers, we were done. Very disappointed. Our previous visits were excellent and we had referred friends to this place. We personally will not be back and I will stop recommending the restaurant.

Note, an automatic 18% gratuity is included with every bill.

I wish this place well. Had a lot of potential. The drinks were decent.

After booking a late evening reservation on Open Table, we found after our Uber driver had left, Dona Habana closed. As out of town visitors, we stood alone, helpless, in what we later learned was the most dangerous areas of Boston - at night - waiting for another Uber to return us to our hotel. Please change your hours of operation on Open Table! As we were blessed no harm came to us, but that night could have ended MUCH differently based on what I learned is near your establishment.

This restaurant has been hit or miss with me. My most recent visit was for my anniversary and it was a miss. My food was cold, I told my server and it was not rectified. The veggies I can tell were frozen veggies, this restaurant is upscale, they should use fresh ingredients. Then I order 2 different drinks and they didn't have the ingredients for them so I had to order something else. My husband said the men's room was disgusting. We told our server, he seemed annoyed by our complaint. The icing on the cake was the 18% gratuity added to our check for a party of 2. They have to do better.

This was my second visit at Dona Habana, it gives you a Latin family dinner vibe, this time around I really enjoy the entertainment!! It’s for sure pricey!! But The Mojito de-piña colada drink is so delicious. I would just say for the Surtido de la habana dish, ordered for two and it was way to much food we couldn’t really enjoy eating anything else there, so my husband and I ordered food to go.

Food was delicious and service was great. My only issue is I’m not a fan of a restaurant that is bold enough to tip themselves on my bill, it was a party of two... it should be up to my discretion what the tip should be. They felt bold enough to tip them selves 18% which was too bad for my waitress because I would’ve given the waitress more. 😏

What a wonderful experience! The food and its presentation was impeccable. The servers were attentive and gracious. The decor is beautiful and the food tasted amazing. The fried fish was a sight to behold and so yummy. The desserts were delicious and one guest said the bread pudding was the best he’d ever had!

Our waiter was very nice. Other then this, the experience was not the best. We arrived 10 mins before our reservation and because they were not open yet we waited outside.

When we were seating we were told the kitchen was broken and waited about 1 hour to be able to place an order. Obviously somethings are uncontrollable and because we were meeting with old friends we were able to catch up.

When the food arrived we orders a platter of Fritos. The plantain chips were very stale (tasted old) and tostones also tasted old and cold.

The food did not sit very well.

Again our waiter was great, the atmosphere was great, just the experience and food did not feel worth it.

We spent a total of 3.5 hours there and definitely did not expect it.

Such a fun restaurant! Cool ambiance! Food was delicious ! So many fun drink options and they tasted amazing! Highly recommend the appetizer sampler! Will definitely be back! Only criticism is service was slow. Took awhile to get an order in and then forever just to pay the check. However i had read that in reviews before it was a busy night and I know overall restaurants are understaffed so not a dealbreaker for how
Good the food and drink are.

Our waiter was excellent. Very helpful and courteous. Delivery was prompt and attentive. The ambiance was energetic and great Latin music.

We chose to eat inside as the outside tables were a little wobbly. I’m sure it can get quite busy but we ate early. We had the seafood paella and Filet. The filet was cooked to perfection. The paella did not skimp on the lobster.

I recommended Doña Habana for and interesting night of Cuban culture and dining.

First visit and really disappointed with the food! I had the seafood paella and my husband got the red snapper. Fish was very dry and there wasn’t much flavor with the paella. Our waiter was Sebastian who was awesome; he was very friendly and attentive.
Kudos to the bartender for making the amazing mojitos! The ambiance and music was great!
Although we didn’t like the food we chose, I think we’ll give this place another try…for the mojitos!!
