Lovely intimate warm place to have dinner.

Came here for dinner, booked reservations 15 minutes in advance using OpenTable.com. We ordered the assorted croquettes for appetizers those were yummy.. At the table we all sampled each others dish: main entrees of churrasco skirt steak (generous portion and delicious), garlic shrimp (about 7... read 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

I really like this place, yet there is always a few things they are off on. First, their appetizers are great, yet their main entrees and their side dished are not very good. If you are going to do black beans Cuban style you have to season it the way Cubans do, so please add a "hoja de laurel" and... More

Four of us just wanted a quiet, enjoyable, somewhat different style of dinner where the food would be good and we could hear each other. Rebecca's was a rare treat. the tables were unusually well spaced apart. The service was excellent. We mentioned the patio table was a bit unbalanced and it was fixed in 2 minutes. We each had...

Cuban food, start with the avocado and palm salad, split it because it is ample, then try the savannah shrimp which is crusted with coconut, and very creamy sauce with dirty rice, and don't forget the key lime pie which is made there! a little hard to find because it is the back end of river rd, in the small...
