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....

Seven of us had a dinner Sunday evening before meetings the following day as some of us were staying in the Robert Treat Hotel where Maize is located. The service was quite good (although there weren't many diners that evening). The mussels, which two of us had, were just OK, but the steak was excellent. The wine list had some... More

I eat out a lot and if a place has a bad day, it happens. This place is so hyped up online, with superlatives ("fine dining" and "dazzling" and "exciting", etc.) that we actually booked the hotel where it's located (the Best Western Plus Robert Treat) because of the description of the restaurant within. It sounded so good. In reality,... More

The food is consistently good as is the service. I love the atmosphere - which provides a warm intimate feel.

Located inside the Best Western Hotel. We dined at Maize before a theatre performance at NJPAC. The restaurant's location provides great access to NJPAC. Parking is easy to. Upon arrival, on Saturday night, dining hall had many available tables (we reserved to be sure) and we had a choice and were promptly seated. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Varied... More

This restaurant was extremely disappointing. We went for a pre-dinner bite to eat and had a reservation. Staff was not accommodating when we asked to sit at the bar instead of a table and downright rude. Very unprofessional manager. We didn't stay for the food. They essentially berated us for wanting a more casual meal. Told us, "you can't do... More

Got to Newark at about 6:30 and to the hotel about 8:00 PM After getting settled in our room we decided on dinner, was nice to find and very nice restaurant on site, the Maize! Our steaks were excellent the service was first class. Really enjoyed our meal before settling in for the evening.

The restaurant is decorated in a semi posh style that seem to have an another target group than Newark. There are loads of tables but when I was there it was both early and empty. The service is intense - almost too much - because you are addressed at almost every taste of your food. I am not accustomed to... More

I have stayed at the Best western where this restaurant is located many times on business and I cannot seem to venture very far for food as they have such a great restaurant located within. The Portuguese flair with a hint of American is great. They have a limited menu but everything is fantastic!
