Visiting with my daughter who was in town decided to go for Portuguese. On a recommendation we went to Seabra's only to realize we had been there many years ago with friends and always thought about this place but did know where it was in the Ironbound district. Great then great now. To start it makes you feel like you... More

Good arroz de marisco! Bread and olives are a good complement to the meal! My daughter loved the salmon with a nice side of potato's and cabbage with green beans. The octopus salad was also good!

It's peculiar and hard to believe that no Portuguese restaurant in NYC comes CLOSE to the quality (and quantity) of food served at Seabras, just a quick 15-minute train ride out of Penn Station. The service, vibe and cuisine are all VERY true to Portuguese culture and to the authenticity of the Ironbound district of Newark, and it's no wonder... More

i had a business meeting/lunch at Seabra's Marisqueira yesterday and can hardly wait to return. I asked the waiter his opinion of the best fish that day and he recommended the grilled porgy (whole fish) with broccoli rabe. Not only was it grilled to perfection, the presentation was absolutely gorgeous. I regret not photographing it! My colleague ordered the grilled... More

We dine here every time we go to Newark. Lionel and staff are amazing. The food is perfect and they are great at recommending what is best and what wine to pair with the food.

This place is good sangria is also good. Parking is right across street. The only think I did not like was the seating arrangement it was like cafeteria seating. I hope they Chang it because that is the only downside of this restaurant.

The food here is so delicious. It is a bit on the pricey side but for a dinner for two at $60 it is worth every penny!

The seafood is good to very good with some nice presentations of traditional dishes with the portion sizes you'd expect at a Portuguese (some Brazilian dishes, too) restaurant. Potato Chips are a signature side dish. There are fresh fish and raw bar selections. The average review is because the stuffed scallop special was stuffed with Surimi crab even though it... More
