Loved the atmosphere and the ambience of this restaurant/bar. Also appreciated being able to be sat as a group of 6 at short notice. Service was attentive and helpful but a bit 'full-on'. Got the sense that the waitress was being asked to try and push us to add more or 'upgrade'. The disappointment for me was the food. I'd... More

This is a must go restaurant while in Hoboken. Right on Washington Street, so easy to find. The food was great and so was the service. Loved the vibrant ambiance but it was tight and noisy near the bar. However there are other rooms that looked inviting. Had a delicious Sangria which was available by the pitcher!

My boyfriend took me from Maryland on a dinner date to this restaurant last weekend. Food was AMAZING! The place is nice and romantic, service was great and so were the drinks. The empanadas appetizer were the best I've ever had<3 totally recommended, will go back for sure!

We were here for corporate dinner and we quite enjoyed the selection of appetisers, main meal and deserts. Everything we had is very good but if you don't like spicy food make sure you tell your waiter. Staff is very friendly and for the large group we had we were served very fast.

Killer Ropa Veija, and nice mojitos! A great little gem that's easy to get to, and fill up on legit Cuban food!

The bar pulls in a good number of well-behaved folks, but for some reason the restaurant is never crowded, and it should be. Really good, reasonable Cuban specialties here in a spacious & more upscale setting than nearby La Isla. Get nice deals thru Groupon, too.

My husband & I had dinner here Saturday night. Food & Prices was great. We go to a lot of Spanish restaurants & my husband rated this #1 of all. If you are planning to go try the garlic shrimp for appetizers. And the oxtails for entrée was delicious.

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
