Prices have gone up and quality have gone down. But still a solid choice for a reasonable Lunch or Dinner with very good service. Sangria decent, used to be better a bit weaker now. You have to ask for the salad that is supposed to come with the Lobster specials. Meat dishes are now hit or miss. Somedays better than... More

I have eaten at this establishment on many occasions over the last 17 years, the last being Aug 4 to celebrate my sons birthday. Quantities are still good, but quality has gone down considerably. I ordered the Rodizio but even this which is difficult to screw up was indeed done. Meat was tough and not slow cooked. My son ordered... More

Friends of my wife and I went to the Iberia Tavern and Patio (across the street from Iberian Peninsular, but same owners). The food was delicious. There were 8 of us and we were seated right away. We ordered Sangria and calamari to start. The calamari was perfectly cooked, sweet and well seasoned. The Sangria went down very easily. All... More

Whenever my husband and I are in Newark, we like to eat at Iberia with family members. We always order the seafood platter. Family members like pasta, so almost always somebody orders one with their preferred sauce. Since the servings are pretty substantial, we usually order to share family style. So far, we loved each visit. We will definitely come... More

First of all, you are going to find a lot of restaurants around Ferry St. But, this restaurant has the looks inside-out from a true Iberian Peninsula restaurant. Now, let's start with the service. The hostess was kind of rude from the moment she asked us the size of our party, which was 6 adults and 2 toddlers. The restaurant... More

Actually there are three restaurants with this name very close to each other with common ownership. Of these I prefer the tavern because it offers natural daylight through large windows at the front. The restaurant offers a large menu, including both Spanish and Portuguese dishes--and Rodizio. Nearly every dish is great and the portions are very large, so you wind... More

So many things went wrong from having only one real waiter serving 70people (2,-3 more would... More

Iberia is one of my favorite restaurants for many reasons. For one, the food, & drinks are amazing! It is great to go with family to celebrate a birthday or event, a perfect spot for a romantic evening, & a fun place to go with friends to have some Sangria and listen to live music during the summer.

This is one of many eateries in the Ironbound section of Newark and they offer great meals and great value for the cost. The only negative thing I can say about the facility is during my last visit, they had some sort of festival going on and their parking lot was utilized for it so parking was a bit of... More
