The hotel next door suggest this restaurant for dinner. What a great choice - I walked to it. It was very nice - a lot of activity in the bar area. I was served immediately. I had the caesar salad with chicken on the top. It was fresh cold and very good. For dessert I had two red velvet cookies... More

The food at the restaurant was moderately priced and pretty good fair. There were not enough servers for the amount of traffic on a Saturday night.

We were looking for a restaurant close to our hotel and decided to try this place out. The restaurant/lounge is in the Renaissance Hotel. We ordered the Cuban panini and the garlic parmesan wings. They were delicious. The wings were large and loaded with creamy garlic parmesan dressing. Never had wings prepared this way and I'm glad we ordered it... More

We sat at the bar and enjoyed our dinner. We had the pizza and salad for dinner and it was perfect. We shared a fruit cobbler as well. We had two glasses of the Seaglass wine and it was fabulous. A very nice evening with very nice staff.

Large portions of excellent food , worth the time and short drive. They serve Portuguese food that is to die for. Sea food lovers and land lovers, a must. This is in Newark but it is in a very nice part of town. I live in the suburbs and feel very safe here.

I was debating how to judge this place and stay objective and relay message to ones who will read my review. The meal I had "ironbound" salad with salmon was delicious. The server was good, but the menu is overpriced for the fact that the meal is served in coffee bar environment. The space is more suit for refreshing drinks... More

We stopped in the lounge and enjoyed a quick meal. The lounge is quite large and perfect for our needs. The food and service were very good.

If you're eating here, you're probably staying here. I had very modest expectations. We had the pulled pork quesadilla and the scallop pasta dish. Both were very good, very tasty. The scallops were especially good. Service is about on par with a hotel bar/restaurant. Space is comfortable. Desserts do not seem to be made on site, so they are just... More
