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

We enjoyed the food. Great flavor. But the service can certainly be better. Long wait for drinks. Once you get your food no one comes back to see if you need anything or want another drink. They don't seem to smile much. It a cute romantic setting. Wait staff can step it up!

The food at Cucharamama is not what most N. Americans, who are used to Mexican food, have come to expect. This is authentic and relies on a different palate of spices and more subtle flavors. Every chef/ restaurant is different but this food was similar to what I have eaten in Peru, Ecudaor, Costa Rica.

Cucharamama can take on any competition when it comes to authentic South American cuisine. The wood oven pizza adds an additional range of flavorful dishes. In the top 5 restaurants in Hoboken.

The restaurant is very nicely decorated with authentic decorations from South America. The food is delicious, especially the roasted meats, cooked in the brick-oven. The variety of the items in the menu swipes among different South American cousins: Argentinian, Colombian, Venezuelan, Ecuadorena. We were gladly surprised to try different cousins in one place only and all them exquisite! The service... More

I have been here several times, and always had a good experience. Caveat: I live in town and do not drive, so parking could be an issue. There are parking lots very close (It's next to a hospital), but not sure they validate. Food is very good, especially the hot bread right out of the oven with the cinnamon butter!... More

This place does not take resavations, so be prepared to wait. And there is only parking on the street. Sitting in the front room of the resturant is where you want to be. The back of resturant seems a little too small and the table are too close together. If you are going to use the restroom that is located... More

My daughter recently took me to Cucharamama for Mother's Day while I was visiting her in Hoboken. I'd recently been to Peru, so finding this authentic Peruvian restaurant was a real treat. Started with a drink, appetizers and brunch menu for the special day. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the warm spring weather but sitting inside one... More
