My wife and I ate here recently after a years-long interval -- mostly because we found a nearby parking space, which is a rarity, not just in Hoboken, but especially in this part of Hoboken. At 6 pm on a Friday night, with no reservation,...More

I've been going to this restaurant for years and it's always fabulous! I especially love the empanadas, the calamari, and quinoa crusted chicken. The wine list is excellent as well and it has a very romantic ambience.

Have tried Cucharama twice based on other excellent reviews and write ups. Both times the food was just simply not good. I figured maybe I hit it on an off night, but second time was bad also

On the positive side, the food was very tasty. We tried about six tapas-sized plates and all were quite good. On the downside, numerous items on the regular menu were not available. And the waitress should have warned us that soda refills were not free....More
