We ordered La Torre de la Revolucion in advance like it says on the website. When we arrived, the waiters did not know what we were talking about. They they said it would be ready in 20-25 minutes. About an hour later, we asked for an update. They again, did not know what we were talking about and said 10 more minutes. After 25 minutes, La Torre de la Revolucion finally came out at the end of our meal, not really when we wanted to drink 25 mojitos. You would think if a party was ordering an expensive drink like that, the service would be better.

Unfortunately we went on Dominican Mother’s Day! Dining room was not available; bar area was not as cozy and much louder.

Service was extremely slow from first order for drinks and throughout. I was disappointed that one server said brunch menu, then another contradicted her.

The appetizers were delicious, I tasted fish chicharrones and roasted squid. However, the larger fried red snapper was not available; the smaller too small for me. The red snapper was lukewarm and completely unseasoned...I’ve had red snapper at Doña Habana before but whoever was frying the fish missed seasoning two fishes. The yucca frita was also cold and unseasoned. The mojo sauce had no salt and barely any garlic. However, others at our table did enjoy their entrees.

I ordered churros and coffee. I was annoyed that my coffee was served at least 10 minutes before my churros arrived. The churros were fine, the dulce de leche dipping sauce was incredible!

We constantly had to flag down an employee to get attention, assistance.

Definitely, not the restaurant to go to on a busy day.

Delightful return to in-person dining. As a vegan, I appreciated the multiple options for me on the menu. My first choice was unavailable, but they had plenty of other good options. My dining companion said the only problem was that we needed a bigger party so he could try more things and share with someone who was not a vegan. We got one of the giant rum punch drinks, it is giant, but it was really good with fresh squeezed juices in it.

Honestly, I’m surprised this place is so well rated.
Food was mediocre at best and menu is much smaller than it used to be. We ordered a bunch of starters and none of them were good. The empanada with beef - the filling tasted like a college cooked spag bol.
Paella was just a rice dish ( definitely not cooked like traditional paella). Margaritas were cute but too sweet.
Our server Maria was actually lovely and attentive.
We will not be back. So many better Latin/ South American/ Cuban places in the city.

I love this place, the food is always so good and my guests always have a great time. Get one of their mojitos and make sure you try the empanadas! I also love their salads, their steak, and their lamb dishes, plus they have this casserole dish with cheese and meat that is delicious. Our server was very gracious. It is noisy for sure, always is with all the birthdays, but it just adds to a party atmosphere. Very fun.

Service/attentiveness could have been a little better. Waitress only came by about 2 different times to check in on my table. We were seated outside and then later questioned by the waitress who had sat us at that specific table so there seemed to be some confusion on their end (I made an outside reservation and was not late). Once we were given the check, our waitress did not return to our table for over 10 minutes and then had to ask for further help to check out. Overall, food was great.

Dona Habana is always going to be my go to place for Spanish food. My recent experience there was not great only because of I was seated near the entrance. There is a front and back of restaurant seating and I prefer the back of restaurant seating. My El Comandante drink was not to my liking. The food was great though. They always get that right and I suppose that’s why I have make my reservation early to get a table on a Friday or Saturday night. I will return of course and will request seating and hopefully my drinks are on point.
