Hi. Rebecca’s was delicious. My only minor complaint was that my entree came out cold and I had to send it back to be reheated.

It is years since I have been here. It is “hidden” away on Old River Road. It was not busy when we arrived and had choice of table

Our server was personable and efficient. We had sufficient time between courses to enjoy the meal. Our waiter recommended the mango salmon over citrus salmon. I am confident that the citrus would be just as good—-excellent
We had chocolate cake and bread pudding for dessert
Who would think bread could be so good

We have dined at Rebecca's several times and have never been disappointed. This evening was made more memorable by the extraordinary attention to detail and service provided by Victoria. A real treat to have server at the top of their game and enthusiastic about what they are doing.

Great place for date night. Our food was great! We shared the yucca frita, my husband had the Ropa Vieja and I had the peppered tuna. We finished with flan de coco - which was fantastic. It took over 20 minutes to get our entrees, but it was a busy Friday night, and I ordered my tuna well done.

We didn’t know it BYOB, and if you bring your own wine, they can add their sangria mix to it. (You can purchase a bottle of house wine at a decent price.)

Great Valentines Day dinner choice. Romantic atmosphere. Our table for two was a bit cramped and close to other tables but it wasn’t too bad. Its a small place but the food and service were very good overall. We’ll go again.

We went here for Valentines Day. Our waiter forgot about us. We had to take our dessert to go. There was no bread, nothing on the table. The tasting menu was basic.

I love Rebecca's I just wished for Valentines that aside from a pre-fix menu they would have let you order a la cart. The pre-fix was way too limited and the pernil was not up to par.
Aside from that everything was great!

The lechon was a little too fatty but the taste was excellent. If more of the fat was removed it would have been perfect. The flan was exquisite!! Definitely an award winning flan.

The food for Valentine's day fixed menu was great. but the hostess had an attitude. We were early for our reservation, and the restaurant was half empty. but she insisted on seating us up front by the door so could benefit from the cold drafts every time the door was opened. We said if she sat us there we were leaving. She then sat us in the more comfortable rear room.

I’ve been here before with a party of 5. Excellent experience. But on Saturday, I booked an intimate dinner for my wife and myself and it was perfect. From service, to appetizers, and especially the main course. Simply outstanding. Ian was a perfect host and attended us with everything. Had us laughing and made tons of recommendations. I highly recommend this perfect restaurant for a private dinner or event. Keep up the great work Rebecca’s.

So I decided to come and dine here because I made reservations for Valentine's and wanted to make sure it was a good place. The food is just perfect! We had Cilantro Shrimp, Empanadas, Hearts of Palm and Avocado salad, Seared Tuna, Lechon Asado, Tostones, Platanos Maduros and Warm bread pudding. Almost everything was delicious. The only thing that was interesting to me is that the blacks beans for my white rice were lemony. That was a taste I never had before for black beans. Aside from that, every dish was just perfect. The ambiance is warm and cozy and great for date nights. I can't believe I live 5 mins away and have never heard of this place. It's apparently been there for twenty years. I am looking forward to Vday there. The staff was wonderful. They are attentive, kind and very helpful with everything. The price point is great for what you get. Plus they are BYOB, that was a great plus for us. We are specific with what we like to drink. All in all it was a wonderful experience. Will add to my go to places for Cuban food.

Enjoyed our time at Rebecca's. Food prices are a bit high for the area but may be partially offset by byob policy (no liquor license).

Dinner was the Havana shrimp and skirt steak... flavorful and filling. Dessert was the key lime pie and flan. The flan was so creamy and delicious.

A chance discovery on the emerging Edgewater dining scene. So glad I found it. Loved the service and food. Maple salmon is a keeper, sweet platanos are divine and yams are stratospheric. Do visit.

This was a last minute reservation, 1st time but not the last. Everything about Rebecca's exceeded our expectations. The shrimp and fish were fantastic and I finely found a place with great black bean soup. And tostones which did not turn to rocks 30 seconds after arriving at the table. Just sorry we did not have room for the dessert. A real gem.

Nice atmosphere with good service, this Cuban gem had a delightful menu of classic dishes with their own twist to each preparation. Food was delicious and it is a BYOB which keeps the costs down. They do offer several Sangria setups to add your own wine to. A nice touch
All in all a very pleasant experience
