I've eaten there twice and I really enjoyed the food and the prices are definitely reasonable, it's a fairly busy place so it could be a little loud and slightly neglectful service might be the only week points… But I would definitely recommend it.

Good food. The 30 min wait was not bad, they called us when our tables were ready. My burger sliders were amazing. I could taste the Chorizo in it. My wife's Vaca Frita was ok. Not a big fan of Fried steak. The Coconut mojito was too strong. The outdoor seating on a nice sunny day is a plus. Would... More

Let me start by saying that I have been here several times and have had great prior experiences. The food is authentic Cuban and is very good. Our first issue with this visit was our waitress. She was unfriendly and seemed to be aggravated by the fact that we were taking our time to look at the menu, taking our... More

I grew up with Cuban food, and so when I heard of this new restaurant opening up in town, I immediately booked a reservation for me and my husband on a particularly special night. ATMOSPHERE: (A) The venue is small, but they make the best of the space. Beautiful artwork hangs from the walls and the restaurant is lit just... More

We'd heard The Cuban was a hot spot in Hoboken and it's easy to see why. The food, the service, the Sangria, the fun! We took our daughter there for Sunday brunch and would go back in a heartbeat. Everything was delicious .. from the eggplant fritters (my favorite), to the ham and cheese empanadas, to the crab guacamole and... More

Was looking for a restaurant to celebrate my husbands birthday. Reading thru to tripadvisor the Cuban was pretty much the only one, which did not had a single bad rewiew! I am glad I picked it. The food is fantastic and the drinks also. The restaurant is much smaller as it appears on the picture but the way they made... More

Went for dinner with a group. Good music, atmosphere & service. The food was excellent. We had the skirt steak and the paella. The paella was a little dry especially near the bottom of the pan, but very tasty! Great mojitos - done right with the strip of sugar cane. Would go again will recommend.

Food was delicious, atmosphere very nice. Loved beet and goat cheese salad and guar with plantains. Paella was good but seafood was a little lacking so i would not order that again but would love to visit the restaurant another time.

Been there a couple of times now and the food is fantastic. Cool ambience and very good service. The pork entree is to die for. And I must say the sangria with rum is now one of my favorite drinks around. One of the best restaurants in hoboken.

Last year, I had eaten at The Cuban when my daughter and her fiance held their Rehearsal Dinner there. Everything was delicious and the wait staff was very attentive. My husband and I, along with our 2 daughters and son-in-law, recently went for brunch. I have never had Eggs Benedict the way they prepared them! They call their dish Cuban... More
