Date night

Went when they had a deal, 2 entrees and a bottle of wine for $25. Limited selection but the food was still great. It was a nice and cozy atmosphere, will try again.

I've heard so much about this place and had never been for dinner, just a bridal shower which was great, so I expected a great experience. I checked out the menu online ahead of time and had a couple picked out. We went the night before Valentine's Day and found they had a limited menu and had jacked up each... More

We had a reservation for a group of 15. The place is big, there is a separate bar area that you can also eat in. From the bartenders, hostess, waiter all very friendly. Our waiter Rick was very good and personable server. He knew the menu very well and was able to answer all questions for the newcomers. We would... More

Even though this is a Portuguese restaurant, there are other offerings. My husband & I went for lunch, and had the garlic shrimp ( choice of linguine or penne), which was excellent. A basket of sliced Portuguese bread was placed on the table while we waited, and we were offered more. Parking behind the venue was packed, but there is... More

Good food, alittle pricey. Good atmosphere. The steak on the stone is awesome. It usually big enough for two people.

Cotali Mar can be seen as a steak restaurant or as an ethnic restaurant specializing in Portuguese cuisine. There are not too many really good steak places in New Bedford but there sure are lots of terrific Portuguese restaurants given the high number of its citizens being of Portuguese descent. I like Cotali on both fronts. The finest steak is... More

My wife and I have been to this restaurant several times, and each time the food was fabulous. And the ambiance/decor is equally fabulous. The paella is especially tasty, and the portion is copious.
