Flies in both water glasses brought to table.. Had to clean our utensils ourselves the looked barely rinsed. Unless you are family or friends of the family this restaurant is sub standard of any other place I've eaten. Avoid if possible.

My husband and I were there to celebrate our Anniversary. My Husband proposed to me at this very spot 5 years ago. Five years later and it is still our favorite family restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised that more people are becoming more familiar with this family owned and operated restaurant. I have yet to have an ill experience. This... More

Spago always has a warm friendly atmosphere and our family is always treated lek we own the place, which of course we do not. The food has always been amazing and being Portuguese the food I feel is exceptional. The Bachalu is a brasa is always amazing and my favourite. The Pork and Clams is 2nd on my list as... More

Our group (10) of diners (who enjoy good food, particularly seafood) were all disappointed with our meals. The Ribs and Quail were chewy, the Paela and fish dishes were overcooked and the Canneloni was mediocre. The restaurant was clean, the decor was pleasant and the menu read very well but the service was painfully slow, we could not get separate... More

I've been to this restaurant a few times. It's location can be a bit troublesome but it's well worth the visit. I've been there when it's busy and quiet. They have a small number of front staff so you may have to wait a while when they're busy but if you're in good company then that won't matter. The food... More

Ordered the Maria's special with seafood. The first clam I picked off the plate was filled with mud. Tried to eat the rest of the meal, but kept finding things to be gritty in my teeth. Was offered free dessert, but really I wasn't interested. The waitress was rude beyond belief, the supervisor came out and when I tried to... More

We went for dinner and had wanted to visit this place for a few years. I thought it was very overpriced, too salty and I was given day old potatoes. I have been to Portugal and did not think it was all that similar. Kind of very simple food for the high price.
