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

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
