“Best in Wayne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I have eaten here dozens of times and I can tell you that there is absolutely no reason Vila verde is ranked so low, this is absolutely the best restaurant in Wayne and the surrounding area. The service is IMPECCABBLE, the sangria is great, and the food rivals any portuguese restaraunt in Newark. This should be the first place you think of to eat at in the Wayne area, give it a try, you'll be thanking me.

“Large portions of good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We enjoy going to Vila Verde for its more than adequate portions of good food. You can select from traditional Spanish/Portuguese specialties, or many other nicely prepared menu items at reasonable prices. Tasty sangria, veal, steaks or paella. Service is efficient and knowledgeable. It gets crowded and noisy after 7:00 PM on Saturdays (try to avoid sitting near large groups). Valet parking or a lot across the street.

“Good Spanish/Portuguese Food in North NJ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

The prices for traditional dishes might be a dollar
or two more than the restaurants in Newark, but you don't have to drive that distance for good paella. It didn't have the perfect bottom crust, but the seafood itself was delicious and the rice , flavorful. The service was very good. The wines are very reasonably priced.
