About Mojito Lounge

525 Bayway Ave
Elizabeth, NJ 07202
View Larger Map

Cubans have a vast and varied culinary inheritance: Cuba’s native Siboneyes Indians, the Spanish who colonized the island, the Africans who were taken there as slaves, the Chinese who came still later as laborers and the Arabians who passed on to Cuba from Spain, all brought their traditions to bear on Cuba’s tropical abundance. It is an extraordinary combination.

Cuban cuisine is about preserving the culture of our homeland outside the island, the richness, variety and vitality of our food all reflect the very qualities of Cuban life: A world of sunshine and music, laughter and dance.
We Cubans have always found joy and friendship in our kitchens and around our tables. May you find the same in yours.
~M. Lluria

Hidden gem in Elizabeth but needs work.

Dined on February 15, 2015

Mojitos provided a great setting hidden nicely in Elizabeth, NJ. Free and fast Valet parking, sizable lounge and bar area downstairs and nice décor in the restaurant made the Cuban feel authentic. The food was great and portion size was worth it's value. The only downside was the short handed staff to accommodate the high volume of guest on a busy Valentine's Day night. Reservations were set for 8:45pm and finally was seated at 9:50pm. Not even a cocktail was offered during the wait and you could not leave the waiting area as you ran a risk of losing you place in line. They could of done better. Drinks finally arrived at the table by 10:30pm and dinner including appetizers (which were ordered altogether) reached our table at 11:45pm. But I do understand the busy holiday, but next time they should prepare accordingly and not over book reservations. Wait staff was great, Food was delicious, Sangria was on point. Would I go back? YES!!

we left without food being served after 2 hr

Dined on February 14, 2015

First they never found our opentable reservation, took them 1 hr to bring appetizer, we ask for spoon/fork, they said I got you one but there's no more left, after 2hrs + we left without food, our kids were starving. A couple next to us waited 2hr + and they were brought a burn filet mignon. Awful service!!

Valentine's Day/Birthday Experience

Dined on February 14, 2015

I want to start off by saying I love Mojito's. Great food,atmosphere, and overall dining experience. However, my last experience on Valentine's Day, which also happens to also be my birthday, was very disappointing. I understand and expect there to be slower than usual service on Valentine's Day, especially being that it fell on a Saturday, however, this was beyond ridiculous. There was prefixed limited menu for Valentines's Day, which should have helped expedite service, since it limited your options and most of the food was most likely preped and ready to serve within a relatively short amount of time, such as the congri, mash potaoes, etc. However, this was not my experience. It took over 20 minutes for our drink order to be taken, at which time we decided to give the server out entire order. We ordered appetizers. That took 45 minutes to come out and right behind our appetizers, our main dishes were brought out, mind you the tables are small. So while eating our appetizers, are already "barely warm" food got colder. At the end of our meal, my fiancé ordered desert for me for my bday, mind you he had to get up and find the server bc he never came back to our table, but indicated that if it would take too long to bring it out, then to cancel it, bc we had concert tickets and were running out time. He got up three times to check on the desert and also requested the check. It took over 35 minutes for the desert to come out, although I do appreciate that they sang happy birthday to me. Then it took another 10 minutes to get the check, let alone pay it. We finally got up and my fiancé handed the check and cash to the server. However, I dont fault the servers, they really tried their hardest on a very busy & packed night. The problem was poor planning. It would have been in the best interest of everyone if management would have had more than 3 servers working that evening. With the amount of people in the restaurant that evening, the servers were set up to fail.

Have eaten lunch here several times and the menu is perfect and the food delicious! Not very busy however that may be due to competition in the area. This place has more ambiance than others in the area along with good food. Slightly higher on price but well worth it for what you get in food portion, quality, service and quiet atmosphere.

Girls Night

Dined on August 30, 2014

Seated quickly and staff super friendly and attentive. The food was amazing, from appetizers to the main course. Lobster tail is awesome and tasted very fresh. Red sangria a must. Price: $$ Perfect place for a girls night or date night.
