Good Cuban food in Jersey City
Spend a few days (on business) in JC and we found Azucar a few feet from our hotel (the Westin).
Food was authentic with a twist. Very generous portions - which is the norm in Cuban dining.
They have outdoor seating which would be great once the weather is a bit warmer.
Spanish tip: Azucar is sugar in spanish and most Cuban's don't pronounce the the R in azucar :-).
Enjoy (Buen Provecho).

Took my mom for her birthday and we had a great time. We split an assortment of appetizers that satisfied the taste buds and the presentation pleased the eyes.

Friendly Cultural Gem
I made a last minute reservation for one for a late dinner Thursday night. The staff was very nice and helpful. I dined outside. Enjoyed different style mojitas, chorizo, black bean soup, and the special which was filleted red snapper - all yummy! Will go again soon!

This place has it all! You can dine inside or out, either way you will have a great time. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, from the appetizers to the chicken,steak or fish. After your done eating you can enjoy the cigar lounge upstairs or go outside. Great place to enjoy during anytime of the day or night. The party starts at night with live dj's playing all styles of music. Love this place!!!

Foodie Cigar Smokers
Really nice and underused cigar lounge upstairs. I was surprised there weren't more people there. I met an old colleague to have some dinner and smoke a cigar. I was surprised that no ginger mohitos were on the drink menu. Dinner was good we both got the red snapper special. Fish and rice and beans were excellent. We had to ask for some sauce for the fish and they were great too. There is a really nice outside seating area off of the bar. We bought cigars there, smoked outside and had a few bourbons and cognac. Not much selection of cigars, but the vibrant outdoor area was great fun.

Azucar is Cuban Bliss!
A real find in the Newport section of Jersey City. Food and service were really outstanding and the restaurant made every effort to accommodate both food allergies and allergies to cigar smoke. Warning: despite an excellent air system the smell of cigar smoke is still present in the restaurant. We sat outside and it was lovely.

Great food, great service, great music, and a cigar bar to cap off dinner... Priceless.

Great Cuban Food
Some of the best food I've ever had. Try the steak with fruit or the pork dishes, all are great. The service was excellent. A bit pricey for the area but a real find. Nice bar scene too.
