We'd heard The Cuban was a hot spot in Hoboken and it's easy to see why. The food, the service, the Sangria, the fun! We took our daughter there for Sunday brunch and would go back in a heartbeat. Everything was delicious .. from the eggplant fritters (my favorite), to the ham and cheese empanadas, to the crab guacamole and plantain chips, to the grilled shrimp tacos, to the salmon to the twice cooked crispy skirt steak (a bit tough though). The chocolate torte and the creme brulee trio were absolutely amazing! And the Sangria. Perfect!

Was looking for a restaurant to celebrate my husbands birthday. Reading thru to tripadvisor the Cuban was pretty much the only one, which did not had a single bad rewiew! I am glad I picked it. The food is fantastic and the drinks also. The restaurant is much smaller as it appears on the picture but the way they made use out of the space including the deco is impressive. The waiter's are very attentive. We was there on a Friday and reservations are a MUST HAVE. A little tip: don't be to drunk if you have to go to the restroom " it's a slippery way up" LOL. The only thing that bothered me a little was the noises. It's a little loud.

Went for dinner with a group. Good music, atmosphere & service. The food was excellent. We had the skirt steak and the paella. The paella was a little dry especially near the bottom of the pan, but very tasty! Great mojitos - done right with the strip of sugar cane. Would go again will recommend.

Food was delicious, atmosphere very nice. Loved beet and goat cheese salad and guar with plantains. Paella was good but seafood was a little lacking so i would not order that again but would love to visit the restaurant another time.

Been there a couple of times now and the food is fantastic. Cool ambience and very good service. The pork entree is to die for. And I must say the sangria with rum is now one of my favorite drinks around.

One of the best restaurants in hoboken.
