Went early on a Saturday 3 o'clock place was filling up I believe due to a Basketball Tournament at the Pru Center. I think this place is probably better for a group versus two people. With two you get jammed at small table near the entrance with a lot of traffic. Service was below par from 2 other visits. Paella... More

What a find. We were tipped off by a Basque Uber driver and it was fabulous. The service was superb if a bit aloof (although they seem to be more chummy with the locals). The food was really really excellent. I had the spicy lobster an my wife had the grilled monkfish and we both felt it was among the... More

Casa Vasca is worth the hour ride for us! Food is always great, big portions and priced right. Waiters are attentive and friendly. Seating is a bit tight but not bad. Nice selection at the bar. We had beer, wine and sangria (very good.) Chicken dishes were made with very thin cutlets (the way we like them), pork chops were... More

My title says it all. Parking is located up the street before you reach the restaurant. Great spot to eat before any event at the Prudential arena which is what I did. Soup included with the meal was tasty and a nice perk. Order anything revolving around the veal and you won't go wrong. The sangria was delicious and the... More

Found this wonderful restaurant on TA. We've been coming to Ironbound area for years always not straying too far from Ferry Street. Last week my daughter and I did and were rewarded by a delicious meal, not-too-crazy atmosphere and well-prepared food. An all-together great experience which I will bring others to for certain. Bravo...

We went for dinner on a Saturday night after reading reviews here- and are SO glad we did. It's a bit off the "main street" in the Ironbound district, but so worth the walk. It was such a welcoming, homey atmosphere, even for us as non-locals. The food - WOW. The portions are insanely huge, and tasted wonderful. The sangria... More

This is always a good fallback restaurant. The food is consistently fine, the service is very friendly, but the portions are large. Typical Basque style dishes. Very good wine selections.
