Solid but not great

We went with a large work party. A fellow co-worker that sat across me ordered a steak which she said was "okay." I ordered a mixed seafood pasta. I think it was penne. The shrimp, clams, pasta and sauce were tasty. However, the small scallops mixed into the dish were pretty tough and chewy... read more

I held my daughter's bridal shower here. You get a great value for your money. Free parking in two parking lots is a plus because of the traffic in Newark. Our event was held in the upstairs room you have to pay for a min 35 people for this room. The room is a nice size and they provide however... More

FREE PARKING offered here and at it's sister restaurant across the street. Iberia Penninsula is the Ironbound restaurant we most frequently visited. Always accompanied meals with pitchers of sangria. Needless to say, we loved what we ate. Quantity and price is right. The rooms are modern, light and cheerful.

Big menu, but when I saw that they had table-side meat carving, I was hooked !!! The wait staff was outstandingly helpful and handsome !!! All of the waiters brought us food, filled our glasses, answered our questions and bussed our table. Reasonable price for all-the-fillet wrapped-in-bacon you could eat !!!

Already from the outside you think this is a nice place, cutely decorated like a Piazza in a village in Portugal, including the flags on the ceiling etc. But then it went downwards from there. The Maitre D' showed quite a bit of attitude, not welcoming, no smiles (not sure if he was impersonating Spanish machismo, in which case, ok...).... More

Was great to sit outside for a meal on a nice summer day, but the food just lacked taste. The sangria was watered down and had i small piece of orange for a pitcher. The paella was taste less and bland. The seafood platter also lacked taste. I can not understand why this place is busy. Has good atmosphere, but... More

I first visited this restaurant over 30 years ago and it has never disappointed me. This time I was with 2 friends for dinner but I have been there many times over the years for both lunch and dinner. The waiter looked familiar and he also recognized me. He had been a young man when I first met him there... More
