We were a party of 5; I made a special request on the reservations comment that this was a 60th birthday celebration (no request for candle, piece of cake, etc). If that was not bad enough, the last person arrived at 8:30 pm. The waiter took our order at exactly 8:35pm. Food was not served until 9:35pm. UNACCEPTABLE. I asked if the red snapper was spicy. Waiter said 'yes, a little.' I indicated that I could not have spicy food at all so waiter said he would make sure it would not be. I could not eat it at all. Super spicy. Sweet potatoes were delicious, thank goodness for that. Rice pudding was watery, not at all like rice pudding. Coffee below par.
To add insult to injury, we split the bill 5 ways and asked the waiter to settle the bill using 5 credit cards. (We had cash aside for his tip). he then brought back two of the cards and said he 'needed to closeout the bill' so therefore he had not charged the other 3 cards. in other words, he was ASKING for a tip. VERY unprofessional and even rude.
We then handed him the 20% cash tip (not deserved at all) and then he went and charged the rest of the cards.
Will never return.

Took a while to get my order taken. Apps were ok. One of the croquettes was cold inside. The waitress was wonderful but waited over 45 minutes for some one to tell me they ran out of steak. Waited another 20 minutes for food. Wouldn’t go back.

Tucked away in a corner of Shady Side in Edgewater, NJ, we discovered Rebecca's quite by chance. What a gem to find in our neighbourhood. Although it was a very busy Saturday night, we were graciously shown to a table. Expect excellent service and outstanding cuisine of Cuban origin, expertly cooked by the chef. With gentle rumba music playing in the background and attention to the finest detail, I can honestly say that we were beyond impressed with this restaurant. On our second visit, they did not fail to impress once again. This time we noticed a party room with twinkling lights off the main room - and I now have an idea as to where to celebrate our next big occasion. Give this place a try, you will not be disappointed. BYOB.

Outstanding service and food. Great restaurant. Plantanes, black beans and other Cuban specialties are outstanding. My only reservation was with the flan. It was too dense and heavy. The flavor was spot on though.

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

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.)

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 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.
