Another awesome dinner! Service, quality, ambiance were all stellar!
Food was tasty as always. Staff very helpful. Always a pleasure to eat at Habana. Feels very festive.
Our food was amazing! The environment was very loud and difficult to converse across a circular table, but we still had a great experience.
Great service, really tasty food and super ambiance. Love the style and open air feel.
The ambiance and setting was quiet and enjoyable for dinner. The mojitos were overpriced and not flavorful for me. The Cuban sandwich/ medianoche was ok, but the star of the dinner was the steak. Served with flavorful rice, but bland black beans, the steak was cooked perfectly.
The food, as usual, was very good the noise level not so much and it seemed our server had too many tables to take care of and impacted his ability to provide appropriate service. We had to ask for steak knives for our steaks!
Food was good. I
We have an amazing time. The food was delicious and the staff amazing. In love with this place.
I was running late to join my friend on our dinner reservations. As soon as I went to the host stand they made me feel very Welcomed and got me a drink right away. The waiter Blake was awesome and very tentative and the food was exquisite. The ambience was beyond perfect. Had a wonderful experience I will definitely come back.
Sadly food was cold and pork was very dry
Beautiful and spacious restaurant, great drinks. Plantains were delicious.
Food came out almost alarmingly fast, yet meat from both our dishes tasted dry and overcooked.
Found out later they had key lime pie for dessert, which I would have loved to try, but we were never given a dessert menu or told there was a dessert option sadly.
Overpriced for what you get.
Probably not anything we’d come back to.
Great food and Nice looking Place 💫🇨🇺
Delicious food and great customer service . Would definitely come back
Food was ok. Nothing too impressive or worth the price of the meal.
Definitely coming back! Had the Churrasco, Paella with lobster, Pork Croquettes, Key Lime Pie, Cocunut Rice Pudding, Mojito, and Rum Old Fashioned. DELICIOUS!!!!
Second time to Habana-Irvine. First time was in Fall 2018. This latest experience was a complete disappointment. Here is why:
1. Menu selection is limited--There are only 2 desserts on available, so if you want to celebrate a special occasion--bring in your own like we did.
2. We were seated outside. The ambiance was nice--but it started to get cold. We asked 2x's to turn on overhead heaters. The heater directly above never came on the entire 1.25 hours we were seated.
3. Plenty of service staff--and they were all extremely friendly. However the service was spotty and inconsistent. With all the staff roaming around, no one offered to refill our water glasses, until I flagged someone down.
4. OVERPRICED for what you get. My kobe burger was good--but average for $22. The bun was soft and saturated with juices that it fell apart while I was eating, so I pulled it off. My husband's entrée was black beans/rice, plantains and stewed meat for $26.00 We asked for some bread to accompany his meal. Never received it, until we were paying our check the food runner came with bread. Too late--bread should come with this entrée automatically based upon the contents and price.
5. I got the sense that Habana could care less about satisfying customers with good food selection/prices. Maybe there just coasting on their location and endless flow of people in the Spectrum that filter in-wanting a meal but not necessary a great experience.
We would have been better off going to Lazy Dog, BJ's Brewery, Tender Greens.
But I wanted a special dining experience for our anniversary and was left with a
"Meh--NEVER Again" after taste.
The experience was amazing. Food was delicious, drinks were great and server Pamela had all the best vibes. Great third date spot
First time at Habana and it did not disappoint. Came here for lunch, so can’t speak on what the vibe is for dinner, but loved it. From the staff to the food everything was on point and amazing. Nothing like a great friendly staff who is on it and wants to make your meal memorable. Will definitely be coming back!
Great ambiance. Service slow. Salad was brought warm. during the entire meal we were asked if everything was ok once.
Food and drinks were great. The gambas al ajillo are a must try
This was my first time at Habana and I am already looking forward to going back!
Service was very slow and we felt that we were the forgotten party.
I come a lot and the last two times I’ve been there’s been issues at this restaurant. It took the kitchen almost an hour to get our food out and the waitress was MIA all night. We were brought champagne to make up for it and also comped our shots, but we did not eat any food as all of our food was cold when we got it to our table and when we sent it back it was never brought back. Just removed. Disappointed
The food was cold and burnt.
It was an incredible evening. My server was great. We enjoyed his service. The ambience and atmosphere was beautiful. And the food was divine. That paella was one of the best dishes I’ve had.
Great food service and settings!
Too expensive and the food was not that great. The bill was confusing also, I wouldn’t recommend it to any friend
Service, food, and atmosphere were all amazing, as usual.
I went here for my birthday dinner. I enjoyed the food/drinks and ambiance of this place, recommended to my besties for a dinner/night out. We made reservations for this Sat. 💃🏽
worst cooked "pretend to be" cuban food..!!!! lack flavors ( authentic that is!)... Appetizers were edible...not bad there. The main courses, allegedly flag dishes ( lechon and churrasco!) were really pathetic! 50 years among cubans ( married to one!) ...Spaniard myself, I know decent cuban food...THIS...not even closed...!! What a waste of a beautiful setting and good service..!!
Juan was our server and he was so great!! He was so helper and fast and literally went far and beyond with service. Would definitely go back. The ropa vieja is a great dish to try!
Habana always seems like my go to for a quick night out always great service and good food
Very noisy overcrowded environment. Definitely not appropriated for kids or couples. Tasteless food and a very average service.
We had a fantastic time. Alexia was out server, and she was amazing!! She went above and beyond for us. The food was really good. And our overall experience was well worth every penny we spent. We will definitely be back!! Thank you Alexia for making our night fantastic.
Amazing place. Great food and service, drinks were amazing as well!!! Will be back.
Patio was nice. Service was very friendly. Food was very good albeit it’s a bit pricey. Didn’t have the coconut drink but that concept plus really fun.
Our server Matt is BEYOND!!
Service doesn’t get better than this…honestly
First time there and it was amazing. The staff was so friendly with such beautiful smiles. Definitely coming back soon.
