“cheap quality and a waste of money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is the last place one should go,concerning Mexican cuisine or hospitality. Habanera is runned by people who know nothing about good service. I reserved a table for Valentine's Day and it turned out to be a dissappointment :( The waiter talked far too much and tried cheesy jokes all the time boasting about the place. We laughed at first but then it got really tiring. Then, he tried to talk us into/ cheat us into ordering plates we did not want to because they simply did not have they ones we wanted to order. And the excuse was that the certain plates would take too long to prepare and we wouldn't want that. The salad we ordered was crammed with grated cheese, so you could not taste anything apart from that. There were sauces everywhere-in my opinion to give taste to plates that were worth nothing. We also ordered potatoes baked in the oven with bacon and cheese. There were only traces of bacon and just cheese. The Margaritas were good but nothing you can';t find elsewhere as well.Last but not least, they would not give us the receipt unless we insisted.I am surprised people still make reservations for this place. I am never going back there again.
