Always good!

Have been to Casa Vasca several times. The food is always very good, and authentic. The fried potatoes are just delish. They always start your meal with a soup. I love that part of the meal. The soups are so good. Visit Casa Vasca. You will love it. But beware, on the weekends you could have a... read more

My husband and I visited Casa Vasca last night to celebrate our anniversary. First off, the parking situation was not ideal. Parking is about half a block away from the entrance and when we arrived at 6:30 pm, there was no parking attendant. We entered the establishment through a tiny bar area with 2 or 3 tables for dining and... More

We all enjoyed our meals very much. The seafood was so fresh and tasty, portions generous and very friendly service. This is a neighborhood, home cooking place to eat.

I love Spanish food. This restaurant excels. The food is just so good. They have my favorite dish marascada in green sauce. A pot of seafood mussels, clams, lobster, scallops, and shrimp, in the best green sauce ever. Home made potato chips, and sangria. What a great deal, not expensive. Truly delicious. I can't wait to go back.

Wow. By accident we found this place. I am used to Forno's and Spanish Tavern, and Very happy we ate here instead. I admit that I am unsure about telling everyone about Casa Vasca, because I may have a long wait next time I go! It is smaller than Forno's and parking is not as easy. It is definitely more... More

My wife and I were headed to see the NJ Devils play hockey and we wanted dinner outside the arena. We heard good things about Casa Vasca. GPS helped locate this neighborhood eatery. They have their own free, attended parking lot. The restaurant is small, but spacious. It is immaculate. The wait staff is superb. The meal started with red... More

Casa Vasca is a backstreet gem away from the usual tourist promoted restaurants in the Ironbound section of Newark. The food is always cooked to order and if you don't see it on the menu, just ask and it will be made. The waiters are men from another era back in Portugal who serve you with a smile and are...

I often go here with my family when heading to a concert or the airport. The service is always great. The sangria was delicious and the food wasn't half bad either.
