My wife and I first went here back in 1984 it was good then and is even better now. Recently there and the food was fantastic. Started with a nice chicken noodle soup. Followed up with appetizer of shrimp and garlic (excellent). My wife had the Paella Valencia, I had the Veal chops. Both main courses were seasoned perfectly and... More

My wife is a Brasilian from Newark and this was their "official" home away from home. Now, it's mine also. They start you off with a big bowl of the soup of the day, served by a waiter carrying the pot with a ladle. Then, there's the never ending basket of perfect rolls and butter. Oh, the service is excellent.... More

I went for dinner with friends. Everything was good, except for my sirloin. It was over 3/4 fat, the type of fat that you cannot chew. I should have sent it back, but did not. Hopefully if I go again, it will not happen.

Been coming to Spanish Sangria for 25 years and have never been disappointed. Consistent quality, whether it's meat, seafood or veggies. Paella second to none. And, of course, the best red sangria ever.

I visited the restaurant this past Sunday with high expectations after reading past reviews. Our bread, sangria, and soup arrived in a timely fashion, but we waited a very long time for our entrees to arrive. When they did, portions were partially cold. My friend's vegetables were ice cold and undercooked. My shrimp dish was tasty, but some of the... More

We ate at "Spanish Sangria" yesterday. The food was outstanding for starters we had the shrimp in garlic sauce "Cameron's al ajillo" we ordered the paella marinara which was sumptuous and had lots of shrimp etc., The white sangria was very good. Overall dinner was awesome. Would recommend and for sure we will return.

Went back to Sangria after being out of the country for 2 years. I am familiar with all the Portuguese/Spanish restaurants in the area and by far here is where I can have the best meal. I went with a group of 4 friends and order 3 appetizers (shrimp in garlic, clams casino and stuffed mushrooms) they were excellent specially... More
