Had a great time time Wednesday 5/24 for lunch. It is a popular place and we were sitting next to the bar. It's not a sit down bar which was great. The bread is awesome and 2 large salads came family style salads came with the meals. There were 5 of us. Had been there several years ago and enjoyed... More

Portions are enormous so I would suggest at least one less dish. Even the apps are big The paella is good but could be seasoned a little more. Very nice restaurant

My wife and I stopped there for lunch after an appointment in Newark. The place was hopping but the servers were constantly on the move, there was graduation at Rutgers and lots of large family groups in. They started us out with salad and bread, and from the lunch menu I ordered the salmon and my wife ordered the chicken... More

Well I might be a fairly good cook but the Paella wasn't very good at all. I could , and have, made better. On top of that, it was very expensive and I hate paying a lot for a poor meal. Especially when I can do much better. Also, our waiter tried to take our orders twice. He actually forgot... More

We went to this restaurant because of the reviews that we read. Well, we were extremely dissatisfied . It was my sons college graduation and we had a total of 13 with us. Besides the rudeness of our waiter the food for the cost, was just fair. I would not recommend this restaurant

I am posting this to let everyone know that if you want to go somewhere with good customer service this is not the place to go. My husbands entree order was incorrect (honest mistake) the problem is that the manager never came over to apologize considering it was a shellfish allergy mistake. Mistakes happen but mangers should be there to... More

Delicious seafood. Service is great and very professional. The salad put on the table for everyone has white asparagus. One of the best parts of the meal. Like a quick trip to Portugal. And, there's parking in the back.
