Great Food. Always Slow Service.

I live right around the corner and have eaten here a number of times. The food is usually very good. The service is almost always way too slow. It's not like they're simply allowing you to enjoy your meal instead of rushing you out. It goes beyond acceptable. The restaurant itself is relatively... read more

My date and I had booked a table for two. We arrived at the appointed time. The first table offered to us was right by the door and offered no ambiance. Why a table was placed there which could be a clear hazard when leaving the restaurant is unsuitable. A second table way in the back was placed again as... More

Arrived on a snowy night at 8:14p to find out our table had been given away and the next available would involve a 90 minute wait. Hostess showed no compassion for the fact that we came out on a lousy evening to honor the reservation that was made a week in advance. Will not be back.

I have been here twice for brunch and have truly enjoyed the food. The French toast is unique and delicious. Be sure to try the syrup. Just beware....there is a step in the darker back section of the restaurant. While looking around for the unmarked bathrooms, I took quite a fall down on my knee. Be warned!

Great food. Great Drinks! The Chef, Maricel Presilla, is no joke. Look her up. It's not cheap, but it is good. Personally, I like to go in there and get several small plates. They are all good, and it's a good way to sample more of the food. And get a Mojito.

The mojitos are outstanding and so are the short ribs of beef. I had the duck breast and that was a bit fatty. Nice atmosphere in a store front local restaurant.

We were recommended to go here by a local Hoboken resident (one of four restaurants that she suggested). We were very lucky to get a last minute reservation on a Sunday - they were very busy. The service was very good - nice cheerful staff as well. The food was excellent with just the right level of spice for the... More

Ms. Elani who seated us was rude and impolite! I don't understand how someone can be so unhappy who is supposed to be a hostess. It took everything in me to not leave as soon as I arrived. My friend who has never eaten here before, called all day to make a reservations for 6p.m. last night. No answer; so... More

I had read several reviews of Cucharamama and most enjoyed the food, but complained of terrible service. Well we throughly enjoyed the food and while the service was somewhat slow, our server was very friendly and helpful. Based on what I had read, the service exceeded my expectations and the food easily met them. We were a large party (8... More
