    We enjoy a lovely lunch of the Salmon A La Parrilla and Rum Pepper Shrimp dishes, which are both amazingly delicious! The sauces really make the dish and great presentation as well. Service was really attentive unlike many restaurant these days that seemed really short staffed. We will return soon!

    Outstanding in every way except the music was deafening. I get it when it’s night but this was lunch. Other than that I can’t recommend Habana enough. The ambience, the decor, the greeting by the host, the service, the drinks and the food were incredible. The bathrooms are a treat as well. Decorated for the holidays. Very festive. 5 stars and will be back again & again!

    The food was awesome! We will definitely return. My only suggestion would be to tell the service staff not to rush the meal. We had appetizers, drinks, meal, coffee and dessert. We sent $200 there, let us enjoy it instead of trying to rush us through our meal.

    The dining area is a little too dark. You can't read the me I without a flashlight. You can't see your food very well either. Service was great. Food tasted great. Cocktails were nice. A little overpriced for the experience though.

    We come very often and get the Gambas Al Ajillo appetizer. This time we were not satisfied with it — they change the dish and added tomato’s and the sauce was different. It wasn’t bad but wasn’t what we knew from the many times we have been coming. It would have been nice to be warned that they changed this dish before ordering and paying for it. Everything else was good as we love Habana. We just won’t be getting that dish again.

    The food is great. They begin your dinner with a complimentary small glass of sparkling wine. The restaurant is quite large with a few bars. So it may get louder at their busiest times. Our recent experience had the worst service. The wrong drinks were brought to our table due to the server being in a rush and not listening (could also have been a language barrier). we had to ask for water several times and when my husband asked for a refill he received one but the server didn’t refill mine. He went mia all the time. We had to ask to order another cocktail and the check was brought out and didn’t ask if we wanted coffee and dessert, which we did. We will go back but hope we do not have the same server again.

    Had a wonderful server, Adam. He was friendly and advised of best menu selections. Offered complimentary champane and remained very attentive throughout our visit even though he had multiple tables to take care of. The food was delicious and served very fast. I certainly will return to dine again.

    It was mine & my wife’s first time there. One thing that stood out to my wife was the fact that the table next to us had a dog with them. Now don’t get me wrong we love dogs but the fact that she’s currently pregnant & was eating whilst there’s a dog next to her rubbing up against her leg didn’t sit well. Aside from that, our food was pretty good & the service was great too. The menu I feel didn’t have a great variety of options & since my wife is pregnant we noticed most of the desserts had alcohol in them, so we ended skipping the dessert.

    Food and service were excellent. Place was packed which is the downside of being popular. We sit in the back patio outside but noise level was still relatively high.
