I wouldn't eat at this place if they offered me free food for the rest of my life. We were a party of 15 that celebrated my Aunts Birthday and the service was TERRIBLE! After being seated the waiter showed up approx 40 mins later to bring water. Now I frequently visit restaurants in this area and the waiters ALWAYS... More

This facility is one I frequent along with their sister facility across the street Iberia Peninsula. They do offer adequate parking. They are open quite late, so this is convenient if you choose to get a bit to eat after attending an event in downtown Newark. It is close to the Prudential Center.

This restaurant is a tourist trap, the food is cold, the service could be better. They tend to hustle more if you have a large party of people. If your hungry and it's late you can always get something to eat at the bar. When this restaurant first opened it was a great place to eat, now they have expanded... More

We went last week-end after a show at the NJ PAC center, actually, I agree it was rather late, but with the reviews we read, the restaurant seemed to be open, & we had even asked if it was tooo late to be served & we would go elsewhere. The owner told us to be seated., but was clearly ANNOYED... More

The food is just average. Large portions but not very tasty. The Chilean Sea Bass was actually a bit spoiled, smelled too fishy. Surf and turf was bland, steak had absolutely no taste. The rodizzio was a much better value and choice. The appetizers were actually better than our main course. With the left over we brought home, it was... More

Iberia has been a family favorite for decades. The food is always fresh with great lobster specials. The all time favorite shrimp and garlic sauce with a bottle Vino Verde is a must.

IBERIA is one of a few most recommended restaurants in the Spanish/Portuguese area of Newark. Paella and garlic shrimp dishes will make to smile!

Folks, I have eaten all over Ferry street. This is one of the restaurants that made Newark famous for Portuguese cuisine. You park in their lot for $5.00. They give you a coupon to take off the $5.oo from your bill. We were seated promptly by a very nice hostess. The place was crowded but comfortable. The staff was very... More
