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!!

The best thing ordered were the chicken empanadas. The ceviche was not super flavorful. The plantain cups were hard versus crispy, which was surprisingly disappointing & the chicken in the cup was super dry. The rellenas were not much like the ones at a CA Cuban bakery, so also a bit disappointing. The mojitos were light on the rum.

The place is great and the staff is so nice, such a great vibe there. Unfortunately the food was not good, and it took over 45 minutes to get the food. The bill was extremely expensive for what we got.

I went there for my husband birthday I did my reservations a month in advance i got there earlier 20 mins the table wasn’t ready. I could’ve understand that. But after waiting 30 mins they give us the more uncomfortable space with at least 7 people next to u no even 1 feet away. I was how im supposed to take my mask of if there is not social distance at all. So we left right there. Never again worse time ever.

The food and drinks were amazing, however it took forever for us to be served. At the end of the night, we ordered another round of drinks but never got them. Finally we got tired of waiting and asked for the check, and they tried to charge us for the drinks we never got 🤦🏾‍♀️.

The music was way too loud, it felt like I had to scream to talk to the person directly in front of me.

Won’t be back for a while.

It was meh. Spinach empanadas were tasty, tostones with garlic very bland. Seafood soup was light on good stuff (one mussel wasn’t even open and there was definitely no lobster in there), so quite overpriced. Ropa vieja was good, though i was surprised that there was no veg on the plate at all — just the meat in a bowl on a plate. Yes, I did order it with rice and beans, which came on a separate plate, and I could have ordered it with veg instead, but still. Vegetarian paella was nice enough for a plate of green rice with a few veggie pieces tossed in, but hardly exciting. None of us finished our drinks. That was the biggest disappointment. Oh well.

Great fun. Always love the whole fish. They were slammed and it was a bit slow but staff was attentive. This was our third visit, ate outside on a beautiful Boston summer evening. Music was a bit loud but fit in with the energy of the patrons and the street. Definitely will be back.

Food was better than expected. The Ropa vieja delicious and so was the skirt steak. To judge a cuban restaurant you have to judge them by their black beans. The beans didn’t disappoint!!! Highly recommend

My family and I visited Dona Habana on 8/2/2021. I had a reservation for 10 but 13 of us showed up. The staff was able to accommodate my party and we enjoyed celebrating my sister's birthday.

The entrees and appetizers were plentiful and tasty and the drinks were pleasing. My family enjoyed the fried snapper, shrimp and fufu and the rice casserole. The night was a hit!

Went here to celebrate my parents 50 th anniversary. We sat outside. They do a great job of making the deck/outside area lively and cheery. The prices are high for what it is, the best thing we received were the beef empanadas. My mom liked her paella rice and chorizo but the rest of the meat was overcooked. My seafood paella was on the cold side and the fish was overcooked and overall not the greatest flavour. It was fine. Just wanted more. It's been years since I left sofl and wanted really good cuban food. The people next to us had the Octopus appetizer and it looked delicious.

Dined at Doña habana for my sister’s birthday. The ambiance was great, food was delicious, drinks were great. Only complaint was that it was really hot indoors and it made it challenging to try and enjoy the ambiance.
