My boyfriend and I frequent this restaurant at least once a month and special occasions. The food, atmosphere, and Sangria at the this restaurant is impeccable. However, when we visited on June 4th we were dissappointed not with the food or service but with the check. Our total bill was 98.70 and they tried to charge us $116.00. When I... More

Recently attended a party in a small room off to one side. Food was good considering large quantities being prepared and served for a party - Tiny shrimp, Spanish sausage, calamari, and mussels as appetizers were great. Chicken soup was okay. Chicken Marsala and rice was served as a very good entree, but the paella was mostly rice with a... More

I went to this restaurant based on TA reviews. The appetizers of sausage and garlic shrimp were very good. The entrees we had were mixed in quality. I had garlic chicken, more tender at other Ironbound restaurants. I was disappointed that it came with no green veggies. The arroz con pollo was very moist and flavorful. The short ribs weren't...

Tried the "Grilled Skate Fish" which was unique in flavor and texture but was served with huge portions of fresh vegetables. We ate at the bar and were brought little dessert samples from the kitchen after our meal which I thought was a nice touch.

Followed up with appetizer of shrimp and garlic (excellent). My wife had the Paella Valencia, I had the Veal chops. Both main courses were seasoned perfectly and... More

My wife is a Brasilian from Newark and this was their "official" home away from home. Now, it's mine also. They start you off with a big bowl of the soup of the day, served by a waiter carrying the pot with a ladle. Then, there's the never ending basket of perfect rolls and butter. Oh, the service is excellent.... More
