Excellent meal as always! Tried the shrimp creole and coconut bread pudding this time and loved both. Even with COVID, they did not miss a beat.

Outdoor dining in nice secluded space. Restaurant is trying very hard to make the dining experience comfortable and enjoyable. They have succeeded! There are tables on the sidewalk as well as adjacent secluded space. Either way, staff and service are excellent and the food is outstanding.

Very pleasant and welcoming servers. On a Friday night they accommodated a switch in my reservation time and gave a dessert compliments of the owner. Food and ambience were really good. I give 4 stars based on price. I can get the same quality Cuban food for a cheaper cost and still a nice dining atmosphere. Located in Westfield people will pay, and it’s worth a splurge every now and again!

Everything we had was fantastic! Chicken empanadas, papa rellena, bistec de palomilla, boliche mechado and tres leches for dessert. Service was professional; totally safe with all their Covid protocol. Can’t wait to go back!

Food was fantastic!! The seasoning and flavors were fantastic! The service was fantastic waiter recommended appetizers and he was right so good! The manager Came by to check up on everything a couple of times which was nice.
We had the skirt steak, the ropa vieja, the paella and the roasted pork, white rice beans and congri and everyone at the table loved the food.
For appetizers we had oxtail with avocado which was finger licking good. I def recommend and will be back again!

Food was great and service was great. Seating was just ok, but that due to the Covid outdoor only seating BS. But
For outdoor it was still really good, you are able to eat in the rain.

We were celebrating a birthday for a dear friend. My guest had never had Cuban cuisine before. I have been meaning to try 1958. So glad I made the choice. The service was excellent, the food was like home, and the ambiance was great. 1958 offers outdoor seating and a very complainant all things considered when it comes to COVID-19. It was a lovely time. Looking forward to returning and looking forward to enjoy more DELICIOUS AUTHENTIC Cuban food with live music.

We drive up for the shore met a few cousins and had the most amazing Cuban food ever. Been here a few times now it never disappoints. The food delish, the service friendly and and the ambiance perfect. I had the Boliche and it was even better than my Cuban mother’s.
