Drove from Westchester County to NJ during a snow storm, place was quiet (probably because of the weather), staff was friendly and very accommodating . Food was amazing, waiter knew the menu like the back of his hand, gave us great recommendations. I will be back for sure, awesome.

I've been coming to Rebecca's for around 20 years and it's still one of my favorite places. The food is consistently good, properly prepared and presented. Staff is top notch and happy to help in any way. Of the countless meals I've had at Rebecca's, I have never had a mediocre meal and always left with the same feeling I've had for the past 20 years. The same goes for anyone ive ever brought there. Well done, don't ever change!

Thank you. We liked the patio dining area. There were several large parties, but we were well served.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner. Everything was perfect! Service was great. Our waiter was very interactive and attentive to us. The food was to die for!! I would order everything off that menu if I could. The appetizers and entrees a were so rich in flavor and delicious! We ordered the guac & plantain chips and the shrimp for appetizers. For entrees, we ordered the lechuga and ropa vieja. Not one disappointment at all! The restaurant also has a great ambiance! I highly recommend!

Had a wonderful dinner in the beautiful backyard patio. Service was excellent (thanks, Ian) and fun. A lovely restaurant for friends, family, special occasions and they also have a separate more "romantic room".

This was my 3rd time at Rebecca's, each time was for a different occasion, and each time was excellent. This is a regular restaurant for me now, and I recommend this to anyone I know.

Love Rebecca's. Been there a number of times over the years. The only thing I don't like is that they ask for your credit card when booking a reservation on Open Table. I think they're making a mistake with this policy. They will lose customers who are reluctant to leave their card information on line. I myself didn't book a reservation the last time I wanted to go there because of this policy.

Rebecca's was a very pleasant surprise. The food and service was excellent. Everyone's entrée was delicious as well as the guacamole and steak quesadillas. My only suggestion would be to decrease the amount of salt with preparation, otherwise it was a perfect meal!

Have been here many times- Food is usually great-
This time we ordered Churrasco and it was delicious (5 stars) but the Ropa Vieja was not so great. Kinda bland and "soupy". Not terrible just not what we would have expected from Rebecca's (rate that at 3 stars).

The Fried Plantain chips did not taste as fresh as they usually do (they are usually served warm and crispy) the ones that were served were cold(room temp) and not crispy - even tasted a little stale- We usually finish the plate of Plantains and this time more than half were left- they just were not very good- What happened ?

I would still go back as I am sure this is a one time thing- Though with the restaurant not being busy when we arrived (off hours) I am not really sure as to what the excuse was.

We received our order about an hour after we ordered it. To be fair, they did have an occasion in the outdoor area but they should have prepared better (getting more people to help).

Overall, not too expensive but the food wasn't good enough for us to wait for it for over an hour

We went to celebrate my birthday. It was very good, the service was a bit slow, but it was good. The chicken soup is a must have, everything was good. The guest we had taken with us really enjoyed the food and service. Overall it was a great birthday celebration well spent.
The only thing they did not read the note to see that it was a celebration for a birthday, no one wished me happy birthday.
