Fun time, god food

Lively restaurant with an interesting flair. We had a table for six..the preferred dishes were the pork, shrimp and skirt steak. The pork chop looked great, but was a bit tough. Large portions, you can take your own wine with you...no corkage fee.

Went here with my husband and a friend. A group of friends ate here a few months ago and told us it was decent, but we like to check things out for ourselves, especially being limited to good food in our area. We came in on a Sunday night around 6:30pm. wasn't too crowded but not empty. The service was... More

We went to eat there a couple of days ago and the restaurant is being dismantled. We saw the construction crew taking pieces of concrete and accouterments out of the restaurant.

Hi Omega486, I am sorry that our current renovations gave you the impression that we are closed. WE ARE OPEN! At the moment, Rebecca's is getting a makeover, so please excuse our appearance. Check us out in about two weeks where you will see our new look and an updated menu. Remember, its BYOB so don't forget your wine! More

Planned by my sister, she got all the girl (12)cousins from Jersey City, Closter, New York City, Fair Lawn and Nutley together for dinner at Rebecca's. We had a small room all to our own and enjoyed wine and food together. It was 2 generations of cousins since we all brought our daughters to the get together. Food was delicious...... More

We drove an hour from Morristown to meet our friends here. It was so worth it. The food was amazing. This Nuevo Latino Cuban infusion can't be matched anywhere else in this area. It reminded me of Miami Beach cuisine. I recommend it highly.

My wife and I had a very nice meal here, but ultimately, we both agreed that in an area with such terrific authentic Latin cuisine, Rebecca's wasn't worth the money. It's too bad, a place like this would make a killing in Boston or another city where there is a dearth of good Latin food, but in the West New... More

We went here for date night tonight, and I must say we were very impressed. Not sure what others call pricey, but it's def worth what the check was! When I called ahead to make a reservation I found out it was a BYO place so we picked up a bottle of Red and they made a sangria for us... More

We've been going to Rebecca's since they first opened which must be close to 20 years. They sure didn't live up to their usual standards on Valentine's Day. The food was still excellent. However, the service and delivery suffered. It looks like they were understaffed and the kitchen couldn't keep up with the crowd. On top of everything else they... More

This is one of the best Cuban restaurants in all of NY/NJ. The best black beans and roast pork around.

After moving into the area we took a walk to find a restaurant for dinner and came upon Rebecca's. We were pleasantly surprised. The service was great, the place cute and clean and the food excellent. We didn't know it was a BYOB but we love BYOB restaurants and will be sure to go back and this time bring a... More
