It is a quiet place, with good service that could become a favorite place if dishes were better. We tried the seafood "soup" and it was a big disappointment: a salty orange broth with some mussels and shrimp. It made us thirsty all night. The Mahi Mahi was OK, but served in such a sad way that did not impress:... More

This is a nice little spot with a quiet ambiance. The pace is slow, so it's perfect for an evening meal with friends or family. Our server was very helpful in choosing our food and wine, and the specials list was quite extensive. The food was excellent, although I must say our desserts left a little to be desired. There...

We made reservations and went to Marisqueira with friends. We were seated immediately. The restaurant is fairly small with a very nice atmosphere. There were several daily specials not on the menu, which the waiter recited from memory. The entire menu and the specials were very mediterranean style. Everyone (4) enjoyed their meal and the service was excellent

The food was good, servers were excellent, the greeter (assuming he was the owner ) was rude and unwelcoming , I use a Groupon and he made it known with a loud voice to the waitress then whispered something in her ears afterwards then came back requesting the voucher which was on my phone so he grabbed my phone ;...

Nice atmosphere. Food was under flavored. A bit over-priced. Of the four of us at the table, the impression was more or less the same. Not horrible, but wont be rushing back anytime soon.

This was actually our 2nd visit and neither my husband nor I can remember what we thought of our first visit. We went this time w a groupon for our anniversary. The groupon said reservation required....but we were the only ones there dining at 6pm on a Friday (2 other couples came in within an hour). The wait staff is... More

We stopped for lunch on a Saturday. The lunch started out great with a Portuguese Fish Soup. It was really outstanding, quite flavorful and seasoned to perfection. For our main course we ordered the Espetada Mista (mixed seafood on a skewer) . It came with mixed vegies and rice and looked great on the plate. Sadly, it was tasteless. If... More

The bistro environment was a great spot. the staff provided excellent recommendations, very international flavors. The appetizers were excellent, the stuffed peppers were my favorite. We enjoyed a seafood paella for the entree that was very good.... More

My wife and I have eaten at Marisqueira several times and always enjoyed the food. We have a couple of dishes we really enjoy and would recommend to our friends and family. The peppers stuffed with fresh mozzarella cheese (pimentos recheados) is great a appetizer to start your meal and we love the Arroz de marisco which is an assorted... More

My husband and I chose this restaurant because we wanted to try something new. Found a Groupon and decided to give it a try. We were very disappointed and will not return. First, despite a half empty restaurant, we were seated very near another couple which made conversation awkward. I ordered mahi mahi and noticed that our nearby dining neighbor... More
