I went to this restaurant on a whim, the night of a concert when my time was VERY limited. I was sent there by one of the NJPAC employees. The food was great,and the service prompt and friendly. I would highly recommend dining here.

The Maize Restaurant is situated in the lobby of the Best Western Plus Robert Treat hotel. This restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere and super good food. It is the place to come for a casual dinner or to host any special type of function. We have been to this restaurant on several occasions on our way to and from the... More

This is an attractive old restaurant hanging on in the center of Newark, and the city desperately needs a place like this. They have a nice little bar which is very affordable during happy hour. The restaurant serves an attractively presented dinner. We ordered the duck, which was quite good, served with green and orange puréed side dishes which were... More

Went there before a show at NJPAC. First the good news: stylish, pretty place, nice bar, great proximity to the theater. Now, for the not so good: restaurant only offers a prix fixe although this is not clear on the website. The website has both a dinner and a pf menu. Pretty pricey at $45 per. None of us wanted...

We ate dinner at Maize while staying at the Robert Treat Hotel. The food and service were good. I had the avocado crab roll appetizer and asparagus soup. The soup was good but the appetizer was a disappointment. Serving was very small and couldn't see any avocado. My daughter ordered the calamari appetizer. Her serving was large and the calamari...

This is a very nice place to relax and have a drink before attending the NJPAC (just across the street) The drink and food are a bit expensive, but the atmosphere and location make it worthwhile for a special night

The bar is good. Nice and quick service. The food is good too although the lobster was overcooked. The steak was excellent. Service was great. A nice place to go, especially for a large group of pople. Just don't stay at the hotel it's attached to as it's awful....
