Maize is almost amazing!

The restaurant is conveniently located in The Robert Treat Hotel in Newark.. It is cozy, well appointed, has good food, an improving wine list and at times music in the adjoining lounge.The only need for improvement here is the level of service.

Good menus with good vegetarian options. Also a good selection of seafood. Service was good and the staff were very tentive, polite and welcoming. The tables were well set with white linen. we opted to eat at the bar as we arrived late and wanted to be more relaxed, this did not at all effect the quality or presentations of... More

Everything we had was good, The cornmeal crusted calamari were crispy and not greasy or rubbery. The crab crepes are sort of like crab cakes wrapped in a crepe, just as you'd expect. The service was nicely paced and we had no problem getting to NJPAC for our curtain. The only lapse was that the vegetable sides were served cold.... More

used the restaurant twice, the bar menu each time. First night was ok but the second night was poor. What was served didnt match the menu descriptions and wasnt even average, the service has varied between average and "why am i here"!!

Great location just steps from NJPAC. Beautiful dining room with great service. Food served cold but I blame it on a full house on show night. Plenty of options on the 3 course show night menu. Desserts are outstanding.

I had visited the NJPAC for a concert last evening and chose Maize because it was close to the theater and I had heard some good things about it. I was happy I did, the whole experience was just excellent. The atmosphere, food and service were top notch. This is a very well run and beautiful restaurant and a hidden... More

We don't spend a lot of time in Newark, admittedly, but had tickets to NJPAC and needed a place for dinner that would be convenient. My husband's co-worker is from Newark and recommended Maize. We were happy to have a convenient location to NJPAC and decided to give it a try. While not a place I would drive out of... More

This very stylish looking restaurant is in the Robert Treat Hotel, just across from NJ PAC. The service is very competent and the kitchen gets everything out on time, so for pre-concert it's a nice alternative to the restaurant located in NJPAC. The food was ok, although a bit salty and buttery. The duck was very good. The "stuffed" salmon... More

Went before a show at New Jersey PAC. The drinks were not very strong, but they were good. Food is just fine as is the service. Highlight for us, was I asked for extra hot sauce, and our bus boy, who was phenomenal, handmade me some super spicy sauce. He had a terrific attitude and a great smile!
