    The food, wine and service were excellent. Overall, the ambience and atmosphere appeared to be very good, but we were seated in a semi-enclosed area where the ambience was cold and the noise unacceptably high. Next time, we would ask for a table in the open patio area.

    The food was really good. The service was slow and we saw one customer get up and clear her own plates. I don’t think it was due to not enough staff as there were many staff all around, just not attentive. We enjoyed the food though.

    We like Habanero’s a lot and have been coming for a couple of years. This was our first visit this year. Tamarindo chicken was as good as before, but BBQ ribs weren’t (the meat was still a bit tough). Miguel provided a very nice service. We were happy to see Victor again (he served us many times last year) and his magic tricks are amazing as always! The ambiance is nice and we appreciated having live music that is loud enough to be entertaining, but we could still hear each other talk. We will definitely be back again and hope the BBQ ribs will be more tender. It’s a very nice place- highly recommend 😃

    Christmas day. The wait staff were just not on their game last night. Not sure why but I dined there on Christmas Eve as well and it was much better service. The food is always good but I pretty much had to ask for everything twice and it was not that crowded. Finally gave up on the desert and paid the bill. I will be back as has been a traditional spot for me for Christmas dinner for over 10 years.

    La comida está muy rica; sin embargo el servicio que nos dieron da mucho que desear. Pagamos todos con tarjeta y en efectivo, regresó el mesero comentando que nos había faltado dinero, cuando se pago toda la cuenta más propina, al hacer cuentas nosotros nos dimos cuenta de que nos estaban cargando de más unas bebidas que no supieron explicar que era; nos trataron muy mal al final como si no estuviéramos pagando la cuenta, casi que no nos dejaban ir cuando ya todo estaba pagado. Pésimo servicio, no regresaremos.

    We celebrated my husband’s 60th birthday dinner with family and friends at Habanero’s last Saturday night. What an exceptional evening! The staff went all out to present top notch service. The food was out of this world. The cake they organized was to die for! The magical Mexican court yard setting and authentic live music provided a super special ambiance. Incredible value for money all round! Had the time of our lives! Muchas muchas gracias! Highly recommend this gem of a place!

    We booked a table for their special Día de los Muertos set menu (800 peso's per person or US$40) for the two of us and had a cocktail and glass of wine each. Food and drink were very good (and we gave a 20% tip) but when I got my charge card notice, it was US$180 for the two of us which should have been no more than US$140 with generous tip. Obviously they scammed us so won't be back nor recommend the place to others due these business practices.

    Use to be our favorite restaurant in San Jose for years. Chef decided to change the menu and eliminate 2 of our favorites. Chicken was dry and cheese melted to a crisp on the skillet. Asked for flour tortillas and got corn. Waiter never showed up again after food was delivered because he went to wait on a wedding party of 50!!! What a huge disappointment.

    The mole experience was incredible! Three different moles - white with chicken breast, red with duck and pork belly with red mole with peaches. All so distinct and unbelievably delicious. The grand finale was a chocolate mousse made with Mexican chocolate (think cinnamon and Carmel) topped with a black mole gelatol we all wanted a second run on the four course meal!

    What a wonderful outdoor dining experience. Blue coast salad was flavorful with tasty ingredients. seafood risotto was tasty with a few pieces of seafood shrimp etc. my tablemates raved about the Chicken Voodoo and the baby back ribs were tender and very flavorful. meat fell off bone. Filet was undercooked..very rare vs requested medium but sauce had alot of flavor. . Service was on point. Unrushed. They had a wonderful band playing ..Th and Sat nights.
