Cuban
Habana was established in 1995. We serve Nuevo Latino cuisine which includes some Cuban and Spanish classics. We are open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Habana is one of the few places in the area serving our full menu until midnight everyday including a late night happy hour served from 10pm-close. We have both indoor and outdoor seating. There is a fun and romantic atmosphere with candle light throughout the entire restaurant. We have a lot of special event celebrations so there is always something new and exciting for our guests to experience.

We celebrated our one year wedding anniversary at Habana! The ambiance was exactly what I was looking for! It was so romantic with all the candles and decor. Even though there were many people we still felt like we had the privacy and intimate space for our special dinner. The food was amazing! We especially loved the empanadas!

We have Friendsgiving dinner. I felt like the price of the dish was not adequate for the size of the dish. I had the Thanksgiving dish for reference. The drinks were 110%. I'll give it another try.

My first time for Cuban food. We went there Thanksgiving evening but didn't have turkey. However, everything we did have was great including chicken empanadas, slow-roasted pork, jambalaya, shredded beef, black beans, and salmon. Really, really good.

we went for thanksgiving dinner and it was so good! the cuban influence in the traditional turkey dinner was truly memorable and absolutely delicious. I was just a little disappointed we got shoved against a boring brown wall (the most boring spot in the place!) when at the time there were many tables available that would have made the experience truly amazing. our waiter was also quite dismissive and not helpful, as I had ordered a side of stuffing because the turkey dinner was described as the sides including mashed potatoes and corn bread, however I was served stuffing with my extra order of stuffing (no corn bread). I totally understand a menu adjustment, but the least the waiter could’ve done was inform me of this change so I didn’t spend an additional $10 on a side that I was already going to be provided..

My family and I decided to try this restaurant out for Thanksgiving. Since we didn’t feel like cooking this year. The food was amazing! I had the paella and the plantains! So delicious! The ambiance was cool too. Great music playing and the restaurant was so cute. Would definitely go back again to try the full menu this time since they had a slight different menu for Thanksgiving.

Just going to say this first. Will definitely be coming back. The drinks, the food and the service was amazingly great. They were super attentive and made sure we had a great time. We were there for my wife’s birthday and we loved the classic look of this restaurant. You’ll feel welcomed and took a trip to Cuba.

Our server was kind, but the restaurant was understandably very busy for a Thursday night so there were some delays. The tables are all pretty close together which made it difficult to get up to go to the restroom. The drinks and food were delicious, it's definitely pricey but worth the splurge. We had a great time, and I would definitely go back in the future.

Just a lovely lunch spot on the deck w/ clients. The food was outstanding (shrimp in spicy creamy sauce). And the waiter found out it was my birthday and brought a piece of cake w/ a sparkler on it. Classy move! I regret that I live in CT. If I were local, I would definitely frequent Habana. No reservations about recommending it to others in the Costa Mesa area

Honestly I used to love Habana and would recommend it to all my friends. Recently I have noticed so many changes where I feel like they are nickel & dining the guests which makes one begin to notice the espresso sized cup of beans that just came with your $35+ meal. Trying to find a low carb friendly meal is a challenge with their current menu and they offer no substitutions. I have also noticed the flavor has gone down. The steak I received was very bland and the salad was mediocre. I feel like they are moving to a more fine dining/Mastro's approach but their quality of the food does not warrant prices and and they do not have enough options on the menu (ie. some vegetables).
