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.

Party of 8 celebrated my moms birthday in the outside dining area and it was amazing. The staff were so accommodating when I needed to modify my reservation to accommodate more people joining and their set up outside is gorgeous. The BYOB nature of 1958 also is amazing as we were able to get a variety of favorites for the table. The food was absolutely delicious and fresh. The service was top notch and such a fun environment. We cannot wait to come back and celebrate at 1958!

Absolutely amazing!!!! I made an outdoor reservation for 4 and we had 2 extra people and they graciously was able to accommodate us and made our evening amazing to start. Our waiter Alejandro is be far top notch. He was extremely attentive to everyone at our table and i watched him handle our table of 6 and a party of 14 next to us so smoothly and with the best service. Alejandro recommended great food and when the food arrived it looked incredible and tasted the same. Will definitely be returning
I highly recommend that if you get a chance to enjoy outside dinning at 1958 to do it and enjoy a taste of little Havana. Btw the salsa music selection that was playing was all of the classics! I wanted to get up and dance!

Dinner was tasty. Our appetizer was a bit cold in the center. They got our orders confused so a lot of tables got their food before us. Food was tasty over all. Average size portions.

We were disappointed with the meals, except for the steak and the rabos. Not enough flavor. Service, ambience, hospitality, etc., was top notch. We even had our own small dining room. Just wish the food was more flavorful.

Enjoyed this restaurant very much. Many local Cuban restaurants like the one in Montclair can’t get Cuban food right. 1958 definitely has it figured out. I especially enjoyed the oxtail empanadas. Amazing!! I’ll definitely be returning and will tell my friends about it.

Outstanding from my Cuban Husband. We started with the sampler platter, with croquettes, Chorizo, Masitas, yucca and an Empanada was terrific. I only like Yucca fried as a rule BUT I tried it and loved it!! Nelson had the Bistec Empanizado which was bigger then the plate and he said was a 12 in a 1-10 rating. My Camarones (shrimp) in garlic (I’m a gringa!) was excellent! And Yucca Frita, EXCELLENT! We had the Guava Cheesecake, OMG!! 😍. Service is OUTSTANDING (ask for Jennifer), the Manager, Ignacio is awesome and very hands on and on every detail! Needless to say it was a great night! Highly recommend! #hidalgo #1958cubancuisine #cubanfood #westfielddining

The lechon asado was delectable. Our friend enjoyed his paella. Really good. The one criticism is how noisy the place is so it can be difficult to converse at your own table. The decor is beautiful but everything reverberates.
