Colombian Restaurant Debuts in Hackensack

By Selena Christmas, Guest Writer

With the holidays fast approaching, it was a pleasant surprise to find that one of my favorite restaurants – Noches De Colombia – opened a new location on Main Street in Hackensack.

If you have ever eaten in one of their restaurants, then an explanation of why their restaurant is so great is not necessary. But, for those of you who have not experienced the “Nights of Columbia” cuisine, after reading this review, it should be the next thing on your eating list. Noches de Columbia is not just a restaurant – it’s a large, inviting and well-equipped home kitchen.

This is the kind of place where you’d want to take your family and where you can get your “foodie” on – because it’s just like home. The staff at Noches De Columbia make you feel welcome even if your Spanish is not that great.

Their menu options – especially their deserts, are amazing.  For an establishment this large, their service is impeccable.  Walking in to the dining area took me by surprise because of its openness. There are no barriers, and the seating is open and homey.

It made me think about holiday celebrations at my cousin’s house – all the furniture would be moved to another room and we would set three or four tables together to accommodate about 35 people.

If you are tired of the same old hamburger joints, experience the Latin flavor of Noches De Columbia – it’s one you won’t soon forget. Don’t forget take the family, treat your friends and most of all, consider it for business meetings. This place can handle it.

Their new facility is wheelchair accessible, equipped with plenty of parking, has a full bar with three large televisions, and is good for both lunch and dinner.  The best nights for happy hour are Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.  You don’t have to make reservations and the attire is casual.  They also have take-out.

No matter where you live, there is likely to be a Noches De Columbia in your area. There are several locations in New Jersey. To make it more convenient for both current and new customers, they have added delivery service (check locations in your area).
