Food was awesome! We sat outside and surprisingly it wasn't too noisy given the intersection and train station only a few feet away. Our server was great as well, even running to help out another party as the wind was blowing over the umbrellas. The BYOB aspect was great so that we could bring our own faves. My only plight was that there is only one bathroom, but that's just me putting that out there in hopes they'll add a second one lol. Great experience and will definitely return.

The food is so good I was dancing in my seat. If you like seafood try the paella. It was amazing. And if you have a sweet tooth I would recommend the Spanish churro. Wow! Wow! Can’t wait to go back!

While the restaurant was clearly very busy and the staff was slammed ,our waiter was friendly, helpful and tried hard to keep food coming. It was worth the wait as the food was very tasty and we all enjoyed our meals. Enjoyed the outside dining area as well.

Staff was amazing! We asked for help deciding what to order. We went with every recommendation and we were not disappointed! We enjoyed the chorizo appetizer, shrimp wrapped in bacon and croquettes. For entrees we had paella, the pork dish, and the oxtail. We also stuffed our faces with the most wonderful piping hot bread. To end our meal we had some of the best cafe con leche and a churro. After all that food, we rolled ourselves out the door! Can’t wait to return and try the dishes we did not get to have.

Let me start by saying this was my first time coming here. I really enjoyed the small but lively atmosphere. Alejandro was an excellent server. The empanadas were especially good and the oxtail dinner was so flavorful and tender. Really really good. I can’t wait to go back.

Food was very good. However, AC was not working (or not working properly) and it was extremely hot in the restaurant. Unfortunately, this made it impossible to enjoy the meal and the experience of being out for dinner.

Had a lovely evening with friends at 1958. The service was amazing and so was the food. Unfortunately it was one of the hottest nights and the AC wasn’t working well but fans were provided and the staff was very helpful, making sure everyone got a chance to have the air directed at them. The staff and food more than made up for the almost unbearably hot experience.

As we told owner Mr.Perez the first time we ate there a number of years ago, the food was as good as the home cooked meals my late mother in law used to make.

A Father’s Day dinner from my sister and I. The food was delicious, we all cleaned our plates. The oxtails were nice and meaty, the yuca was tender and tasty, and the salmon was cooked perfectly with a crispy bottom. This is my third time here and have not been disappointed. The owner is super attentive and makes sure you are enjoying your meal. He engages in small talk with all the guests and takes the time to make you comfortable at his establishment.

A delightful evening dining outdoors on a beautiful patio area in Westfield NJ. We were cordially greeted and seated immediately and even welcomed by owner Louis. Since this was our first experience at a Cuban Restaurant, we were a little concerned not knowing what to order. Have no fear, the menu fully explains all the selections and any questions were handled professionally by friendly waitstaff. We started with Camarones al Ajillo-delicious 6 jumbo shrimp in a delightful garlic sauce. My wife had fried red snapper (see photo) and I had the Churrasco a La Cubana Angus skirt steak topped with a delicious chimmichurri sauce followed by outstanding carrot cake and cappuccino.
All in all a great dinner, great service, in a very pleasant atmosphere. Cannot wait to return.

Great restaurant atmosphere, Good food and service. BYOB is welcomed. Just wish they had a single vegetarian app and entree option- but I am willing to eat the sides for dinner so my wife could have a great steak.

On a double date with a friend and everyone was very pleased with all their dishes. The oxtails were big, meaty, and delicious. The shrimp scampi was a nice portion and flavorful. The Mahi Mahi was very yummy. For dessert, we had the Spanish churros and those were yummy too. We saw the owner walking around throughout the evening checking with everyone which we all appreciated. Looking forward to going back.
