We came to The Cuban for dinner as my sister had been here before and really enjoyed her experience. We started with a pitcher of white sangria that wasn't so great, however the server brought it back without question and brought us a new pitcher that was much better. The food was EXCELLENT... Not one person was disappointed with their... More

I am a foodie of Cuban heritage. This is the best Cuban restaurant I have ever been too. It is even better than what you find in Miami. This place has elegant Cuban food. We drive over an hour to dine here. We discovered this place about a month ago, and we are going tonight for the fourth time. It... More

The Cuban is one of Hoboken's finest restaurant's. Truly a gem. We have dined here three times and really enjoy it. Great place for a date and also great place to go to with friends. Lively atmosphere. Very well run. The food is all very good. Try the salmon and the watermelon sangria. Go to the Cuban. You won't be... More

If anyone ever have a craving for cuban food, this is a great place. Their cubano mojito is amazing and their bread is amazing. I usually never eat the bread, but somehow this one time I decided to try and and inhaled all of the bread except for the ones my friends got to first. We asked for a second... More

Just made our second trip to this restaurant. As it was last time, food was great. Service was very good but not outstanding. It was not to busy on a Sunday about 6 pm. My wife loves the salmon. And she is a tough customer. I had the ropa vieja again. I know I should try something else bug it... More

This place is more than fantastic. I've been here a number of times and it never disappoints. Every dish tastes amazing...I don't know if it's Cuban good in general, but this place has a wow factor. They do specials during the week like 'Mojito Monday' and their plates are very affordable. Portions are large. Brunch is my favorite meal here,... More

The Concierge of the hotel gave us a list of recommended restaurants and checkmarked her personal favorites. The Cuban looked worth a try and it was. Dinner was superb and the Sangria was to die for. Or at least, to stay for. Unfortunately, we had to get to "The City" for a show so we reluctantly left. Adgain, the dinner... More

After some negative experiences with other Hoboken restaurants, this is a safe-haven for good food, good atmosphere, good service and such. I have been here several times. The bar is a good quick place to eat, and the Sangrias are amazing if that is your thing or not. A talented guitar-player plays excellent music. Food was delicioso.

We were two couples and were going to go to La Isla after seeing the food network show, but due to the weather we made a last minute reservation here. Turned out to be a great choice. We sat in the back which was nicely decorated and quieter than the front room bar. Loved the Mojito choices. We split a... More
