I felt like this restaurant had a cheap, mass market vibe. Everything from wine glasses to water pitchers had a diner feel. Service was slow, impersonal and inattentive. Food was unimaginative but edible (I've had worse and I certainly had a lot better). Huge portions felt like I was paying for food per pound- quantity over quality. Noise level was... More

Food is good but I like this place because it has an outdoor patio with live entertainment off the street.

We visited this restaurant for dinner. Location was convenient and there are a lot car parking opportunity. There is no stress for parking. We ordered fried calamari and shrimps. Main courses were lobster and octopus. All them were great. Next time I will visit again. Final was with the Lime Sorbet... I still feel it's taste in my mouth.

Very poor, haven't been here in 15 years. Paella was over cooked. A fight broke out with a manager and customer. The police had to be called. Rice was soupy and the sangria tasted like Kool aid. Waiter refused to take the parking voucher for five dollars, so I was forced to make it as part of his twenty percent... More

Waiters did not speak a word in English.We both order pork steak and got something else.Food had no flavor at all.And we had to put up a fight we the flies for our food. JUST NASTY. Bathrooms for handicap too small.Not many women work at the place.Overall 1 star,over rated,over praise,over price and disappointed.

Went for dinner before the concert at the Prudential Center. First impression was it could be cleaner. Service was fair at best. Very large involved menu so we had lots of questions to which our waiter kept nodding his head and not really explaining the item. There were 7 of us and we ordered a variety of steaks none were...

This place has one of the most beautiful Bars I have ever been to. Their selection is fantastic. I live 1 hour away and have brought people here just to hang at the bar for talk and drinks. They do an excellent rodizio. The only bad experience was on a Mothers day Buffet. The food was poorly prepared. It was... More

After hearing great reviews from friends, I decided to check it out. The atmosphere was great, the sangria was awesome. But the food... Not so much. The paella was over cooked and seafood was dry. The rice was very soupy. We also had the chicken and rice. Same results, dry over cooked under seasoned chicken and soupy rice. The outdoor... More

First of all, all dishes we ordered (calamari, combo bbq chicken & vack ribs) were too salty. Our chicken was still uncooked, we complained and later they brought us another portion of bbq chicken. Be on the alert my friends, check your bills before paying. We were charged an extra calamari dish plus an extra soda, that we did not... More

I love lobster and they have a full lunch with it for about $20 most of the year. It is a very nice restaurant. The staff is great and service is kind and prompt. There is plenty of food. There is a small parking lot across the street; go early if you want to park there. otherwise it is on... More
