My husband and I have been to this restaurant many many times and every single time we complain among ourselves about the service but never did anything. However this time enough is enough! I can't even begin to tell how horrible these waiters are to their customers. I find it even more difficult when I see them being extra rude... More

My first trip to Seabra's. I will do Pro's and Con's---you can figure out the rest :) Pro's: Great service. You seem to have a plethora of wait staff taking care of you. Once we (party of 4) started eating we never had to ask for a thing. We ordered several appetizers to split and they staggered the dishes, which... More

If you're in Newark and looking for fish or seafood, this is a great restaurant. Huge portions (we all took home "doggy-bags") at very reasonable prices. Lobster tails and steaks were cooked "just right" and grouper was really big & tasty. Staff are friendly and service is very good.

Food was awesome, I loved the service. It is a small restaurant but you feel a family atmosphere. Way Better than Iberia.

If you are looking for seafood this is The Place. I always order to go and I have yet to have a bad meal. The broiled cod here is amazing and the other seafood dishes are also very good. This place brings a little Europe (Portuguese) into its dishes. They also have a variety of European and Brazilian beers.

I have been Seabra's Marisqueira plenty of times. The service is average but since I frequent the place I get sort of a special treatment. The crab is absolutely fabulous..... its only served Friday, Saturday, and maybe sunday if it last that long. They also make a killer Sangria but it also depends who makes it. Anyways, if you like...

Probably the best seafood restaurant in the area, generous serving like your typical Portuguese restaurant would serve. Great value for what you get. Fresh and tasty food everytime I've gone. Def where I go to satisfy my seafood cravings. Recommended

I had the Paella Valencia.Just fair at best. The portion was big but that is because it had a ton of rice. You could barely find the seafood. The shrimp were small, the scallops were also extremely small. The piece of lobster seemed like scraps that were left over from another dish. Come on guys step up. I realize everyone... More

First, lets start of with the bad. I believe the service could be better. I have seen the front door man neglect guests for about 20 minutes during the rush times. The place also contains a strange odor. This odor is not a rank or rancid one. It is just the olfactory nature of the place. If one does not... More

If you love Portuguese food, you will not be disappointed. I went on a Saturday afternoon around 1:00. The place was packed by 2pm. There is a very big bar in the front that you can sit at and eat along with a "see through window" into the kitchen and a glass case with all the fresh seafood. I ordered... More
