Went here for date nights a few times because the food and ambience was that good. The food was well balanced and very tasty. I had the spicy chicken soup and my wife loved the plantains. The fish dishes are good and tasty as well as the salads. The place is small but cozy and it is best to make... More

Food is excellent in this trendy restaurant. For anybody that likes Cuban and Caribbean, Rebecca's is your place. A perfect place to spend an evening. Be sure to bring a good bottle of wine. The food, the service and the setting are outstanding. This is not our first visit, and quality remains high.

We've eaten at Rebecca's several times. I like the steak or the citrus salmon. As it is not a huge place, we booked a private party for 50 people there in July. It went very well and was simple to plan - selected shared appetizers, 3 entrée options, and shared desserts. The staff was friendly and took care of us... More

Lovely restaurant. The staff is so sweet and helpful and the food is great. The guacamole is a must have. I really loved the Tuna and tried the snapper which was delicious too. Just a heads up that the black bean soup is the same as the black bean side, so try one or the other!

Their thick Pork Chop is what they are famous for. Make sure you order when you walk in, because it takes about 45 minutes due to the thickness. Their fish is very fresh and delicious served with plantains. For appetizers we ordered black bean soup and salmon croquettes which was excellent. Food and service is definitely 4 stars. Bring your... More

We went to celebrate our friends birthday. What a pleasant surprise. The good was very very good and the service was outstanding. The restaurant is very pretty too. We sat in the back room that is enclosed with AC but has the outdoor feel with beautiful lighting. Highly recommend!

I have dined at Rebecca's for years, but recently treated an out of town guest to dinner here. The jerk chicken is delicious and they still have my favorites: yucca fries and coconut mashed yams! They now offer wines by the bottle which is nice. This is a great place for celebrating an occasion.

Amazing food, great customer service. The citrus salmon was by far the greatest dish on the menu. Skirt steak cooked and seasoned to perfection. Besides the food being great the staff is very attentive!!!! Great place whether it me romantic or family dinner.

Got there on Tuesday night to reconnect with a former colleague who recommended the place. It was very quiet because of a week day but the service was excellent and I liked that the tables were not too close to each other. Even if we were the last customers, they didn't try to push us out. We shared a yuca... More

Went here with my husband and a friend. A group of friends ate here a few months ago and told us it was decent, but we like to check things out for ourselves, especially being limited to good food in our area. We came in on a Sunday night around 6:30pm. wasn't too crowded but not empty. The service was... More
