I would definitely recommend coming here for delicious Latin food. There are tons of options and each one is full of flavor. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Hoboken.

Hard to believe, but it has been six years since my last review of Zafra. We have continued to patronize this restaurant for the same reasons that impressed us on our first visit. Everything is fresh, homemade and simply delicious. Ten dollars buys you a pitcher of virgin sangria-bring your bottle and enjoy this wonderful mix with fresh fruit. On... More

Several weeks ago a bunch of us decided to try the suckling pig at Zafra. We were told that we needed at least 6 people and five days advance notice. We made our reservation two weeks in advance. They called to confirm our reservation the day before. Nine of us arrived only to be told by a waiter that there... More

The food is horrible. They should hire a new chef. Period. We know food and this does not qualify as one.

2 of us enjoyed 3 app's and an entree and everything was very good. By 7 pm people were waiting on a Saturday night (as they should be for good food), but the waits were not long as plenty of tables outside. We will be back.

The service was great, the food even better and the prices were reasonable. It's a BYOB and we brought Merlot to make Sangria. A $10 charge to make the drink. Well worth the price! Our server gave us three recommendations - shrimp, chicken and a steak dish. We ordered the three choices. Wow. Mouth watering for all of the dishes... More

This place is byob. Seriously? They have a cocktail menu but don't serve? They couldn't make any dish personalized to our kids' liking because everything is pre-prepared, meaning they just dump the stuff in the fryer ... They must have big freezers.

Had a wonderful evening at Zafra. Service was excellent food was delicious. Server gave us a few extras to try including a wonderful dipping sauce and marinated olives. I highly recommend that you share appetizers and entrees since you want to try an assortment and all the wonderful different flavors. Relaxed casual outdoor dining was never rushed with just the...

I've passed by Zafra's on several occasions, and am always amazed at how packed the outdoor area is. Seriously - it takes dedication for anyone to WILLINGLY sit outside on Willow Avenue for their food. My compadre happened to have a gift card to this place - not to mention she gave up chain restaurants for Lent - so I... More
