Amazing Seafood

Incredible seafood at really reasonable prices. Dined alone (waiting for my flight out of Newark) in the bar area. Service was acceptable, but I did get the feeling that the server would have been more engaging if I spoke Portuguese. I had the espetada de marisco which is a large skewer of... read more

Gave it three stars because of all the great places that surround Seabra's, but there food is good. We had the Oysters on a half shell, and Seafood Paella. The oysters were a good size and they gave us more than the half dozen order. The paella was average, but some of the dishes i noticed customers getting looked delicious.... More

This is a typical portuguese restaurant, with veery well cooked dishes and the portions are over sized which is good if you want to share. Try the seafood dishes and you won't regret. Try the meat and you'll love it. Feel as if you were in a traditional portuguese house and try wonderful different tastes!

We actually found a space to park at the end of Ferry Street. Came into restaurant feeling upbeat. The brilliance of the food kept us very happy. Seafood dishes outstanding. European-feeling atmosphere.

If you like high quality ingredients, or matéria-prima, then this is your place. We ordered the fried squid, in Seville style, the cold seafood platter (frutos de mar), and a few cod croquettes. The squid were prepared perfectly, with a light batter and a lovely tomato dipping sauce. The cold seafood platter included oysters, clams, shrimp boiled with a little... More

Four of us went to this restaurant because of reviews we saw. We got their early. The food was just good, for example the menu or the waiter should tell the customer that their squid is served with the tentacles. The white sangria was good. The Paella Valencia was just okay: the rice base was watery and the seafood, chicken... More

We always eat at Seabra when going shopping on Ferry Street. We drive from CT to eat there just because its so good. Food is authentically Portuguese and wait staff is courteous although on our last visit, our waiter wasn't very pleasant and seemed a bit shy. Overall, we always enjoy everything we eat and the portions are huge. Great... More

I've been here five times since "discovering" it a year ago. We sit at the huge bar, have a well-made cocktail, order and eat delicious food. Excellent, briny, fresh oysters. crisp greaseless fried calamari. Any seafood dish will be a winner... but the pork chops are a treat, too. A ttentive service, good prices. I'll be back, again!

Really pleasantly surprised at the quality of the seafood in this restaurant, although I should not have been as the Portuguese know their seafood! The best thing I ate here was their grilled octopus, with the octopus salad and garlic cockles a close second. Their bread is really delicious, dense and chewy. I would have liked it warmed up, but... More
