Great food, impeccable service, and ambiance was soothing. We were seated right away and the staff remained attentive to our needs/requests throughout the evening.
Great atmosphere and excellent food
Well all enjoyed our time
Good food, very good service, a little loud though, not for quiet dinner
This place is way too loud; and the food is okay; nothing to rave about.
This is my 3rd time here to dine and the food & service is always very good The management team is always on their game as well walking around asking how everything is with your meal. I highly recommend their guacamole with banana chips !
From the moment we walked in the door the service was excellent, all staff very attentive. The food was excellent and Red Sangria great!!
Brought my wife here from Staten Island for her Birthday and enjoyed our time there. Great Service and Great food.
This is about the 5th time i have been here, i live around the corner. Was very disappointed. Its seems that they were severely under-staffed. Service was extremely slow and food took forever. The food was very good, though. Also, it was very noisy, too. I hope it was just a bad night for them.
We have been coming here quite often since they opened. However, the last several times I’ve been here, I’ve left angry. Besides the fact that they should explore more options with their menu, I have found that the service the last few times has been terrible. We’ve had servers who have placed to go orders for us when we are sitting to dine at the table, we’ve had servers not know if substitutions could be made on items, servers that have left us to go help other patrons while mid-sentence or leave and not come back with so much as water after 45 minutes. This place use to be good, their bread was good too but they’ve stopped giving it. But anyway the place use to be good, but I have a heard time reconciling my poor recent experiences here with those formerly good memories. Not even the fact that I like Fred helps this place out. After this last time, I’m not sure I’m interested in coming back.
Once a month me and my best friend try a new restaurant this month was Cubanelle. The hostess was amazing he was super funny and friendly. I am the mojito queen and the mango mojito was a 3 on a scale of 1-10. The shrimp in garlic sauce were amazing as well as my best friends pomegranate margarita and the pernil was yummy. Although I loved my entree my bestie wasn’t to impressed with her palomia steak. That’s her go to meat on our dates. Overall the food was ok and I’d go back and maybe try something else. Last but not
Least our waiter who was very nice at times we felt like he forgot about us. A few minor improvements could make this a go to local Cuban hot spot!!!
Food was amazing. Black bean soup simple but perfectly spiced. Service was fast. Highly recommended!
It was an amazing experience. I’ve been here many times and have taking many friends and it never disappoints. It was my mom’s birthday and they made her night when they sang happy birthday. We all had a great night. Server was excellent and the manager is always a gentleman.
Great food nice atmosphere.
Nice casual restaurant with awesome cocktails. The staff was very polite and happy.
Had a group of 5 people and everyone was happy overall with the food. 3 if ya had the stuffed crispy red snapper. Very tasty but not a whole lot of fish there. Also WATCH OUT FOR BONES!! Is was a little unwieldy to eat and was a tasty dish but a little pricey considering what you can actually get out of it. Desert was delicious. Small bowl of very tasty mousse.
The pitcher of white tropical sangria was great and went too fast!!
Will recommend and return but will look into other menu items.
We were very disappointed in this restaurant. The poor service we received ruined our visit. We were seated at a very tiny table which was OK with us because we were only 2 people. We ordered 2 drinks, each, 2 appetizers, and 2 dinners. While we were half way through our appetizers, our dinners arrived. There was no way all that food could fit on our table. We sent the dinners back, but by the time they arrived back to our table, the dinners were no longer hot. This is our second experience with bad service at this restaurant.
LOVE this place!!! Will never wait in line for Cuban Pete's again now that I know Cubanelle is just a bit of a drive farther. Wonderful decor, friendly service, delicious cocktails and food, and great value for the money! I don't often give 5 stars, but this place deserves it. We will go again!
Great service and food. Owner is very personable. Neighborhood gem
Perfection in every aspect !! a hidden gem in Nutley NJ.. The food was fresh , and served promptly. Service was superb.
Great Food with outstanding service!
Our server was pleasant however, the quality of food this establishment offers is an embarrassment. I like to blog about food but the only thing I could say about this place is please DO NOT lie to your customers.
My husband ordered a Palomilla steak (sirloin) and the kitchen served the cheapest meat you can buy! I brought it up to our server and manager & all they did was give me a $20 gift card...No thank you! Please do not waste your time or money eating here. Horrible food and quality.
Great time had by all! Everything from the food to the sangria to the coffee was excellent. I would recommend Cubanelle to anyone.
Date was great. Tried new stuff and also went with our regulars items. Food sangria and staff are always great.
We usually get appetizers and share, which have all been great. Nice staff. Good sangria. Free parking lot across the street. Better than Cuban Pete's and often less crowded. Happy to have a place like this in Nutley. Definitely recommended.
I was surprised that I haven’t heard of this place before giving how great the food was. I highly recommend it! Everything we ordered was delicious! The staff was all very nice as well. We loved this restaurant.
Great food, great staff, & great Sangria. I would recommend Cubanelle for any occasion.
I highly recommend this restaurant , tuna tartar was amazing the flavor and guacamole and chips delicious . This was our 1st visit will be back again soon!
Amazing food and amazing service! Will definitely come back
This was my first time to the restaurant and it will not be my last. From the cheese bread rolls to the Mariscada entree everything was delicious. The staff was warm and personable. Bravo
WE love this restaurant. Great Latin food and great service.
First time there .. loved the atmosphere great vibe .. was celebrating my daughters bday .. the service was excellent! The manager on that night rolled up his sleeved and pitched right in team work. Food excellent.. it was a nice time with my family...definitely go again .
Our waitress was very good but the busboy appeared to be very inexperienced. Not only did he drop food on us as he cleared the table by reaching over instead of walking around the table to clear., he seemed oblivious, did not apologize and continued the haphazard clearing method for all courses
Good and service was amazing. You can tell the manager was on point, he pretty much checked in with everyone to make sure all was well which is a sign of a good manager.
We were a party of 8. All of our dishes were amazing. Great service! Excellent food! We definitely will be back here again!
Really good food. We had a bunch of small plates and then shared the pernil (which was fall-off-the-bone delicious). Friendly and attentive staff. And the owner bought us a round of drinks which was very much appreciated! We will definitely be back soon.
Consistently good service and interesting selection of food choices.
Went to celebrate with family. Everyone loved the food. Six wonderful entrees and three delicious appetizers. Huge portions big enough to share with the table! $5 Mojitos! Ended with a comp dessert for my anniversary!
Very nice. Enjoyed the atmosphere. Greeted and seated with smiles. Server took good care of us
Great we have been here before but this was for my daughter's birthday and the server was nice, food was fantastic and the drinks and dessert were great!
