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.

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

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
