My favorite Spanish resturant this side of the Atlantic Ocean!

I first went to Forno's for my niece's HS graduation last June. Well, why did they take me here. Now whenever I'm in the area I make a point to stop by and have a meal. I mean I just stopped by for a little lunch and it was more like Dinner. I had the Vegetable Penella which was delicious.... read more

Great food, atmosphere, and service. We enjoyed a feast during a leisurely lunch. Initially we were going to be seated at a table that would have been a little difficult for conversation. The manager immediately opened up a whole new dining room for us. Our waiter, Fernando, was also excellent.

Fornos; what can I say, just that I actually go there a lot. The food is delicious; and I love the calamari, and the muscles in green sauce. The stuffed salmon; I start of with a glass of cabernet; then maybe two more, and I end my night with an expresso and a shot of 43.

We stopped in for dessert. We wanted to sit outside but was told the empty table for 4 was reserved by a person inside. So we went inside and waited 20 minutes for someone to take our order. We gave up and went back outside. The same table was still empty but we took another. We waited 10 minutes for... More

I'm very disappointed to hear that we didn't deliver the best service possible when you stopped by for dessert, Joanne. This is very unusual for us, and I'm not sure what was going on that night. I assure you, it normally doesn't take that long for you to get your order when you sit down to eat with us. I... More

This restaurant is within walking distance of New York Penn Station.

I've been hearing about Forno's for a long time! A lot of my coworkers have been here for business meals and family has recommended it as well... I wasn't disappointed. The service was excellent, from starting out at the bar where they serve the rest of your cocktail in a carafe on ice (a touch I haven't seen before), to... More

Located in the Newark Inbound District, this is one of at least 6 such restaurants within walking distance of Newark Penn Station. Very nice, thorough menu. Excellent waiter. Paella quite good, although the rice was a little dry. Good salad and albondigas appetizer. Worthy of a visit.
