My husband and I been to the downtown restaurant. It's a quaint traditional little spot and the food is always delish. Now they recently opened another restaurant uptown. It's spacious, bright and modern. We made reservations for brunch there. When we got there we didn't...More

This is a departure from most restaurants in Hoboken. Superb, affordable Cuban, a great brunch menu and always wonderful coffee. The staff is super friendly and all work together. A great neighborhood staple.

This is a great place for brunch, lunch and dinner. The Cuban food is delicious and it is also popular with families and children. Prior booking is needed. The French toast and the omelet is a favourite.

Tasty chicken dishes, pressed sandwiches. Reasonably priced for area and byob. Gets crowded. Small place with counter and inside and outside tables in season.

Delicious Cuban food at the end of the main drag in Hoboken. Excellent service and very quick, even though the restaurant was full. Only downside is if you have a party with more than 4 people, as the place is small. We sat outside so...More

I've been to La Isla several times and they're always busy which is a good sign. While the food is almost always very good I do think it's a bit overpriced and service can be slow at times. On a positive note, while the dishes...More
