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!

As a place to impress, in Newark, this is a good choice; assuming you are not there for the food. The room is elegant and nicely appointed. The food is a disappointment. Fortunately my date is more impressed with white table clothes and high prices than food. She liked it. Me, I go to a restaurant to for the food.... More

Food was good but portions were tiny especially for the price I paid. The wine served during the happy hour was terrible

Food was cooked to perfection.Wonderful wait staff. Very attentive.Wait staff went above and beyond to ensure our satisfaction.Exceptionally clean,and a wonderful atmosphere. I highly recommend the Merlot House wine as well as the Talapia which is served in an awesome Lemon sauce!

Wow. And I mean wow I'm in shock at how dated and bland the food is. Stuffed shrimp with no pop, no garlic. The blandest "paella" I have ever tasted. Where are the red pepper flakes, garlic, salt? It was yellow rice and shellfish. Ugh. Even the desserts were so unappealing. A stale Tartuffo and an apple kind of mini... More

I've never had a more boring paella. Served in a ceramic dish; that was the first tipoff. No garlic, what a tragedy. No pepper. Frozen mussels. Really disappointed.

I had dinner recently at Maize with a group of co-workers. This was the 3rd or 4th time I had dinner at the restaurant, but the first time I tried the paella. It was awesome. Rice was perfectly cooked and seasoned and was served with shrimp, clams, mussels, scallops, and lobster. Highly recommend giving the paella a try!
