Love the decor and the spicy salmon (with extra sauce) lol soooooo bomb
Service was really good . Staff is so kind .
I reserved outdoor seating because of the pandemic but it seemed like they overcommitted and instead had to seat us inside. The place was pretty packed, even inside, so if you are reluctant to be in close proximity to others, I wouldn't recommend coming here. That said, the food, drinks, and rest of the service was fantastic.
We were able to have a productive business lunch with a potential employee. Thank you.
Had not seen a few close friends since Covid lockdown (8 months ) and we were seated and greeted so friendly and on time. Our server was super attentive and allowed us plenty of time to catch up before having to order food.
The quality and quantity of the food and drinks were outstanding.
Love this location and all the people.
Will definitely be back
The best ambiance ever - took me to another country! Such a pleasant evening and the food was outstanding.
We waited 30 minutes after our reservation time to be sat. We waited another 15 minutes to be greeted. Then after ordering , our food took 42 minutes to come out. We finally said something because the two tables next to us arrived after we ordered our entrees , and they received their entrees before us. I don’t know if It was because we are a younger couple and the waitress wanted to pay more attention to people she believed would tip better. But I’m part of the service industry and this was absolutely ridiculous. We still tipped well because karma obviously but It was one of the worst service experiences I have had in a long time. The food was AMAZING. But service was absolutely horrible. We each would have ordered more to drink if our server paid attention to us. Unfortunately for your establishment your service hindered the amount of of revenue to be received.
This was one of the worst experiences we’ve had at a restaurant. We were seated 15 minutes after we arrived, then sat at the table for 30 minutes with menus and water. No one came to the table. At 20 minutes we asked where our server was and they said one would be right over. 10 minutes later, when no one came over, we left. They should have at least taken our drink order and brought us chips. Needless to say, we are very disappointed and will not be returning.
They were extra busy and were taking quite some time to take orders. The food took a while to come out as well. When we first arrived it took 20 minutes to even get water. To leave we also had to wait to get our check.
Our server was the best. Front of house is rude and can’t manage a proper way to seat people. There’s a 2hour limit no matter what. Manager was nice.
We had a great experience at Habana. Only mishap was we made the reservation for 8:15 but we were not seated until 8:45pm. They really need to improve on that. We make reservations so we don’t have to wait.
Food was excellent and our server Sean was awesome. Social distancing and plexiglass separating each table. It was very crowded but I felt very safe.
I was sad that they no longer serve the complimentary plantain chips with sauces. Please bring those back. We were so hungry especially having to wait half an hour to get seated that it would’ve been nice to have something to snack on until our food got there.
I made a reservation for outdoor seating at 8pm. Got seated at 8:45pm indoors. I understand it was a busy but night but when I asked about the outdoor seating which I made a reservation for, I was told I would have to wait 20-25 more minutes for it. Not a big deal, nonetheless annoying. Other than that, food was amazing, service was incredible which is what really matters. I would come back and recommend to friends and family.
Had to wait for an hour to be seated, even with a reservation. Very uncomfortable waiting area and too long to wait with a reservation. Probably won't be back because the food did not make up for the wait.
Waited 40 minutes to be seated despite having reservation
The food was amazing and the drinks were good too! The portions were large. The only thing that needed improvement was managing the reservations line. We waited 30 minutes after our reservation time before being seated.
We had a great time here. We really enjoyed the food, especially the pork croquettas and the mojitos! The service was a little slow, but they were busy, and it's understandable. My only real complaint is that my chair was super uncomfortable. Overall we liked it and will probably be back.
One of the best restaurants in Orange County. My family and I had a great experience and the staff was also very good.
Great restaurant! They went out of their way to make sure my friend and I had a fun night out! :)
Had reservations for 8:15 but wasn’t seated until 8:55. Reserved indoor reservation, host took us to outdoor and said no seats were available inside. Immediately after seeing several people seated inside we asked someone else and the gave us a two top inside.
I reserved a table in plenty of time and requested outside.
When we arrived we were seated at a table in the walkway outside the restaurant, the whole purpose to go to this restaurant was for the ambiance, and we basically stated at people waiting in line all night. Then the price for dinner being $250, I sat and had no experience, it could have been in the parking lot. The service was extremely slow. When seated told it was an hour and a half dining experience, but it took the waiter 20 minutes just to bring our water. I do understand the pandemic is going on, and there are restrictions, but the food was not good enough to be stuck sitting at outside table in the sidewalk staring bushes and the backside of Barnes and Noble. So sad it cost me $250
Food was very mediocre for the price. Drinks very expensive and not generous.
The place was great! The food and drinks were so good and I love the whole feel of the place! The waitress did wait a long periods of time to come to our table and sometimes that was annoying, especially if we wanted another drink.
Made reservations for outdoor table but was seated inside. Service was very slow to take order and check back in. Very loud.
Not enough proper social distancing outside on patio. Tables seated too close. The plastic barriers set out aren't between all tables and are just a plexi on the top portion - doesn't provide real protection - just an illusion. One fell over onto a guest while seated as they're trip hazards since tables are so close. It was removed and never fixed and put back. Would recommend spacing tables out further. Great to see KN95 masks and face shields for all servers to keep them safe. Menu is limited. Would like to see a a few more options.
It was great!!!!!!!
Dramatic difference in service and atmosphere. It’s so very different than past experiences, it’s almost like there is new ownership or management. The brand and experience seem to have been lost.
Seriously good food and wonderful waiters! Great date night stop, and special occasion eatery!
We waited for about hour after our reservation for a table because they overbooked. It seems to be quite common on weekends, but what’s the point of taking a reservation? If you planning taking advantage and trying to stuff as many customers in your restaurant by overbooking, don’t take reservations because you can’t honor them. Also, they were severely understaffed. I understand this is probably due to Covid and the weekend, however, don’t fill up the restaurant and expect your customers to be happy when they are waiting 30 minutes just to be served water. I loved this place the first time I went there, but was completely disappointed this time.
I’d give a better review if our reservation wasn’t 45 minutes behind and not for the area we requested. Our server was awesome, but the food was super expensive, I asked for bread and got 3 small slices for $4. Just ok overall sorry to say.
Great food and drinks! Waiters are very nice. Second time visiting and can’t wait to come back.
Don’t go here. They don’t care about customer.
I waited a long time even though I made a reservation.
Made reservation for 2 on Friday evening through OpenTable. Took almost an hour after our reservation time to be seated. I trust this is uncommon occurrence. Besides this, great restaurant experience and very delicious food
Great staff, food, and ambiance ! Brought my mom for the first time on a Friday night and it was busy! We had a reservation for 8:30 and we were being told that we were next but they kept letting other people in before us. We were hungry and didn't want to wait more to be seated inside.They have tables set outside of the venue along the Spectrums walk way. Have to come back to be seated indoor. Not complaining but would appreciate an honest response.
The experience was good. We got at 753, 745 was our reservation, and we got there early at 630 before our reservation due to a change in prior arrangements. We were initially offered to sit in the bar when the host told us our table would be ready soon, we had already been sitting in the bar. The service was good and the Food was decent. My tamal was a bit cool and the sauce hot. But otherwise all the other items were good.
Is a great place to eat with friends or just get together great stuff wonder service and pretty good food and drinks
This place is not something special. Some of the outdoor tables and chairs are rusty and worn out.
Everything was great!
The staff and server was very helpful and accommodating. The place and décor provided a pleasant experience. I have already recommended Habana to my neighbors. Looking forward to trying more of their menu.
Love Habana. The service and quality is unsurpassed. This is one of my favorite restaurants in OC.
