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

Went next-door to this restaurant to eat. Expensive for what you get but everything was very well done. Great waitstaff good bartender a very nice experience overall. Next to the airport so you never know what you're going to get. This place we will definitely return to when we go to Newark airport.

I ate here several times during my stay and the staff were extremely friendly and the food was great. The menu was quite varied and the prices very good for a major hotel chain.

Ate dinner during our one night stay at the Renaissance hotel Newark. The restaurant is actually the bar lounge and it feels like a lounge-small tables, cushioned benches, TVs, sport icons donn the walls. Great waiter service, prompt and efficient. My husband ordered the steak special. It was very tasty and had a great rub. He asked to substitute asparagus... More

We have been eating here for several years every time we park and fly from the Hampton Inn next door. We love the food especially the burgers and the chicken wings --- lots of meat on the wings --- and the chicken strips --- large, juicy white meat pieces. We just wish the dining room was open more often. Many... More

I just had their club sandwich. I almost never complain about food, but this was a $16 sandwich and I didn't even eat half! There is no other dining option around this hotel. It's fenced in like a prison camp. Wow! Hard to believe. The water was good, though.

I was staying at the Renaissance, so I wondered downstairs to their restaurant, Ironbound. This is my fourth meal there and all have been very good. This time I had the Ironbound Burger. Presentation of food is outstanding. Nice sized patty with good flavor, best part...the bacon slices! Three types of fries offered, I had the regular fries. Nice amount,... More

Like most, walked over from a layover at the Hampton next door. There was a fair crowd there, but didn't interfere with service. When I sat at the bar, the guy next to me had just received his dinner, scallops, and the plate looked great. He said it was, I ordered it, and completely agree. Great spot close by those... More
