Amazingly fresh food and attentive service by our waiter Alex made our first visit memorable. My son's girlfriend and I had their Cuban sandwich, my wife had the Torrejas corn flake tres leche French toast, and lastly my son had the Ropa Vieja which was tender and amazing. Note: my son lives in Hoboken and eats here often - he... More

Multi level, dimly lit, sexy, romantic spot to enjoy Cuban food with a creative flair. Try to get seated upstairs which is IMO the better atmosphere. Service is always outstanding. Their drink list is awesome and they have 3 types of sangria. We tried the white and red (not the brazillian version), and they were very good, too sweet for... More

Highly seasoned Cuban food,welcoming decor, numerous seating options and can accommodate special events. The portions are very generous causing one to pause and even continue the experience at home. The advice of the servers is to be taken seriously. The coffee is quite good and there Is an interesting use of newspaper ( Cuban?) in the presentations.

I grabbed dinner here recently and the food was fairly good. The servers were friendly and helped me choose a great dinner. It's one of the better restaurants in the immediate area.

I decided to visit based on high Trip Advisor ranking and first time eating Cuban style cuisine. It was during Sunday Brunch. As I entered two authentic Cuban musicians were playing Cuban style music which immediately set the Cuban tone. I sat at bar since came alone but was immediately welcomed in a friendly manner by the bartender named Albert.... More

Went there on a double date. Great service. They were flexible with us moving from one table to another because of the draft. Good food, big portions. Overall good experience, good service as well.

We went for our first time on a busy Saturday evening and enjoyed very attentive service despite how busy the restaurant was. The food was excellent and was only a few minutes walk from the W Hotel.

Absolutely the best meal I have ate all month...ok, all year! We started our meal with a couple of beers and the empanadas appetizer. The customary bread also came out and both were uniquely delicious. For dinner we ordered the hanger steak and Vaca Frita (see photos). Both were absolutely amazing!!! The portions were also adequately healthy and not the... More

Our meal reminded us of our recent cultural experience visiting Havana and Cienfuegos. - Interesting appetizers (loved the eggplant...but there was no eggplant option in Cuba) - Amazing skirt-steak (scarcity of beef in restaurants or B&B's in Cuba) - Fresh grilled chicken - Interesting root vegetables Other: - Sangria is potent!

Been there last night with a party of 6. From the moment we walked in service was impeccable. Our waitress (I believe her name was Samantha) was smart, attentive, quick on her feet and a pleasure to talk to (and I wish I had her memory from when everyone ordered!). We had a few appetizers, the shrimp were amazing, the... More
