On a business trip that ended in Newark NJ. I looked up restaurants and quickly learned the area was famous for its Spanish and Portaguese cuisine. We selected Forno for is ratings and were not disappointed. From the first bite of the salad that is served upon arrival to your table to the last bite of our meal everything was... More

My father in law took us here tonight and it didn't disappoint. The meal started with family style salad and bread which both were delicious. I had the seafood stew and it was amazing. It was filled with seafood in a tomato broth and extremely filling. For dessert, I had a lemon sorbet that was served inside a lemon. One... More

The food is delicious. The service outstanding. The waiters are very knowledgeable and attentive. They have an extensive wine list. From appetizer to dinner, there is something for everyone. The baked mushrooms, the spanish sausage and salad were very good. I enjoyed the Paella de pollo and Pollo Ajillo, which was a nice garlic, Lemon and white wine sauce. Tiramisu... More

I love good service and For now has it; the staff is very attentive and always there if needed. Food is delicious and portions are big, you won't be able to finish it.

I ate here on Saturday and it was amazing food, everything was cooked to perfection. The food came out quick and I was a bit hesitant because I've never had good food cooked so quick.. and yet I was so impressed by the amazing flavors and presentation of the meal. Pure excellence. My thanks to the chef.

I've been coming to Fornos for well over 20 years. I've noticed service steadily decline for past 10 years, but last nite bartender was down right brazen w his remarks. No class.

My family of four made a 5:30 pm reservation at this establishment months in advance. My wife confirmed the reservation twice before we arrived on Sunday 12/18. While making the reservation, she explicitly informed them that we had a show to attend at 7:30 pm. The restaurant understood this, and indicated that 5:30 would allow plenty of time. We arrived...

We're quite sorry to see that this experience didn't go the way either of us wanted it to. It's disappointing to see that we were unable to seat you promptly -- this is usually never a problem, and we're sorry that it happened. We were quite busy that night, and while that is not an excuse, it did lead to... More
