Rebecca’s never disappoints me. Had dinner on Saturday with my wife and a few friends. They had a birthday party so the back was very busy. Do to that event, our food was being delayed. But the gentleman that I think was the manager, came to our table and explained to us that they were running behind by 15 minutes or so. No big deal at all because the food was OUTSTANDING!!! Like always that is. Our friends had never been to Rebecca’s and fell in love with it. The service is above and beyond what anyone would expect. And the ambiance is perfect. Keep up the great work Rebecca’s. Definitely my favorite place.

Rebecca's is one of my favorites. Vanessa and Angelo treated us like long time friends. It is jewel off the main road where the food and service are always excellent.

Food was good. The place is cool. Love the ambiance. Music great. Hospitality amazing. Our waiter was really in top of it. Knew when and what anything was needed. Highly recommend it I had the “churrasco” it was a little over cooked, it still amazing. My girlfriend had the salmon citrus. Portions are big so bring an appetite!

We have been to this restaurant many times since it opened, and enjoyed the food and ambiance. The food this time did not live up to our expectations. It's beginning to feel like fast food.

Beautiful experience, lovely service and servers. Wonderful tasting food. Highly recommend Rebecca's. It was slightly smoky due to ventilation systems. But great experience. I'll come back again.

Food was outstanding, service was great and I love the ambiance of this restaurant. Especially appreciated the menus with back lighting. The restaurant has low lighting, which I enjoy, but had no trouble reading the menus, which can sometimes happen. I like that it's BYOB and that they can turn your wine into sangria for an agreeable price.

Lechon, appetizer and dessert excellent, bread was stale, coffee like mud. One of our meals was switched to a different choice without letting us know. It was just served to us. When asked about it, this is when they told us it was not available, and looked at us as if it was strange that we questioned them. The steak was made differently. Not sure what that was about. We were a party of 4 and sat in the sunroom. Very small and hot. Table could not accommodate everything. We had to keep the 2 bottles of wine and water on floor. The ice bucket was not on a stand. The exterior of sunroom was pretty, but you can tell the glass had not been cleaned in a very very long time.
I would order take out, but not eat there again.

Fabulous for our group of 11 in the back terrace/garden room. Our group was very animated and loud so having the space in the back was perfect. I will definitely come back and highly recommend Rebecca’s.

We are big fans, and they never disappoint... love the variety of the menu, and since we always order more than we can eat, we have another delicious meal next day. Though BYOB, the available wines are quite good and so well priced, that we rarely do. It is a gem.

Rebecca’s is the perfect neighborhood date-night restaurant. I don’t know how it took me so long to try, but now that I have, I won’t stay away for long. The ambiance is charming yet unpretentious, the service friendly and attentive, and most importantly, the food is delicious. Well seasoned guacamole, the churrasco was the best I’ve had in the area, and I would return for the empanadas alone. I wish I had room for dessert as the menu options were tempting. BYOB, and they have a few sangria varieties. All in all, a great date night spot.

What a fantastic place! Looking for a place for a special occasion after seeing a broadway show. Food was excellent from the appetizers of empanadas and chorizos to the dinners of Coconut shrimp savanna and Jamaican jerk chicken. If you can, give this place a try, it is well worth it!

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.
