Great Portuguese seafood of the Newark Iron bound in New Jersey. The parking is free just across from the street from the restaurant..

My company help a reunion here for a group of 50 to 60 people. The food was so good that NO ONE had an issue and the service is second to none. From the drinks to the entries to the dessert everything was delicious. Being able to make so many different meals at such a high quality is no easy... More

There are far better places to eat Portuguese seafood and cuisine in general in this area. I've given this place 4 tries already to no avail. The paella lacked flavor and seemed to be microwaved. The bread was fresh. The service was mediocre. Parking was the only plus. The espresso was weak. This is European fast food in an architectural... More

I felt like this restaurant had a cheap, mass market vibe. Everything from wine glasses to water pitchers had a diner feel. Service was slow, impersonal and inattentive. Food was unimaginative but edible (I've had worse and I certainly had a lot better). Huge portions felt like I was paying for food per pound- quantity over quality. Noise level was... More

Food is good but I like this place because it has an outdoor patio with live entertainment off the street.

We visited this restaurant for dinner. Location was convenient and there are a lot car parking opportunity. There is no stress for parking. We ordered fried calamari and shrimps. Main courses were lobster and octopus. All them were great. Next time I will visit again. Final was with the Lime Sorbet... I still feel it's taste in my mouth.

Very poor, haven't been here in 15 years. Paella was over cooked. A fight broke out with a manager and customer. The police had to be called. Rice was soupy and the sangria tasted like Kool aid. Waiter refused to take the parking voucher for five dollars, so I was forced to make it as part of his twenty percent... More

Went for dinner before the concert at the Prudential Center. First impression was it could be cleaner. Service was fair at best. Very large involved menu so we had lots of questions to which our waiter kept nodding his head and not really explaining the item. There were 7 of us and we ordered a variety of steaks none were...

This place has one of the most beautiful Bars I have ever been to. Their selection is fantastic. I live 1 hour away and have brought people here just to hang at the bar for talk and drinks. They do an excellent rodizio. The only bad experience was on a Mothers day Buffet. The food was poorly prepared. It was... More
