The Cuban Restaurant and Bar

Reviewed By marb001 - Mountainside, New Jersey

The food was really delicious. We had the empanadas and calamari for appetizers. I had the salmon with parsnip purée and it was excellent. The flan was the best I’ve had and the stuffed chocolate chimichurros were over the top. Service was great. Just don’t let them
Seat you at the table by the edge of the steps!!!
I’ll bet they try to seat everyone there first!

Reviewed By ArkN1 - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

We had a brunch in this restaurant. I had a crab slider as an appetizer and flan stake as a main course. Slider was good. Nothing special, but not bad. The flan stake was totally different experience. First, I asked for sunny side up eggs. But I got scrambled ones. Second, dish looked and tested like one you can get in the diner somewhere in the middle of nowhere. And the stake was very chewy. I can’t believe I can have it in the Hoboken…

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with dinner here, attracted by the high trip advisor rating and positive reviews. We had a lovely experience. Friendly staff, romantic ambience and very good food. My scallops and the tarte tatine particularly were delicious. The winelist was pricey by bistro standards but this is New York! A very enjoyable dinner.

Reviewed By LadiesVoices - New York, NY

A dear friend just moved back to Hoboken and raved about this Cuban restaurant. I was disappointed that they had run out of the picadillo, but was very pleased with the pork dish I got. Fantastic beans and rice. We had a few servers, and our favorite was Pedro. Charming, sweet, genuinely friendly. Definitely going back!

Reviewed By naazy99 - manchester

Went to this place..
The tables are bit too congested and could do with updating the decor.
However
Very impressed with the size of the pizzas.

6 of us ordered 2 whole pies,
one was just cheese and tomato. It was very nice.

The other had 4 types of toppings.
That one couldn't enjoy it much as the put so much toppings specifically so much onions which didn't cook thoroughly and Jalapenos, wasn't pleasant to eat..
Couldn't even taste anything. It spoilt everything.
Control the amount of toppings, it would have been amazing.
Overall it was good and would definitely return if I visit that end of USA.

Reviewed By yabutravels - Hoboken, New Jersey

Having gone to Elysian for years, it remains one of the top places in Hoboken. Good food/drinks and friendly service. Go early because it can get crowded. And bring your pooch! They are dog friendly and offer them water in real bowls. Bar menu only before 5pm.

Pilsener Haus & Biergarten

Welcome to Hoboken's Pilsener Haus & Biergarten, an authentic Austro-Hungarian biergarten with some of the best dining in the region. Set in a turn-of-the-century bier hall with an adjoining, sunny biergarten, it's the perfect place to spend the day with good friends and good cheer. Choose from an array of brats, sausages, schnitzels and strudels as well as seasonal specials, vegetarian dishes and even gluten-free options. And of course, our huge, warm Bavarian soft pretzels. Wash it all down with any of our over 20 premium drafts or one of 50 European and American craft beers by the bottle. Add regularly scheduled live music and it truly is a biergarten for everyone-- after work, for dinner, or weekend brunch-- Prost!

Reviewed By CJPJ - Hoboken, NJ

Went here with friends and sat outside on a nice June evening. We have been coming here for years and really like it but you need to get there as early as you can as it does get crowded many nights. The place looks like a real European biergarten and some of the waitstaff are European.
The giant soft pretzel is a must- it comes with a soft cheese spread . Also, the Brussels sprouts are usually very good. We liked the potato pancakes as well. The mushrooms were just ok-might not order those again. And the charcuterie and cheese platter was good. In the past I have enjoyed the schnitzel, some of the sausages/wursts and the summer salad. Love the side cucumber salad. Beers are also good (it goes without saying) and there is a large selection. Highly recommend.

Los Tacos No. 1

Reviewed By Mitchgobears - Salt Lake City, Utah

The tacos are good but everything's no is a la carte. One taco is an appetizer. Two tacos are a snack. Three tacos can make a meal. Three tacos without anything else is $10.50. The food is good but it definitely isn't inexpensive Mexican food. I wouldn't go out of my way for it.
