AMAZING FOOD! The portions are big and sufficient for sharing. My husband and I went with friends and had a wonderful time. The waiters are very friendly and polite. Highly recommend going especially if you are a seafood lover. Other options are also available besides seafood which are delicious.

One of the best in NJ if you want to eat real Portuguese food. Fresh seafood. Great fish and meat dishes.

I suggested this restaurant to my friend when we returned to Newark airport. I remembered discovering Seabra's after another similar airport opportunity, and I was so thrilled to find the restaurant again in the Ironbound. The sangria is delicious, and my friend's sole dish was incredible. The fish practically melted in the mouth! The service on this visit was a... More

I worked on a ship once, and I had the freshest fish dinner of my life. Caught in the early afternoon, filleted on the fantail, and served for dinner. How can you top that? I thought my palate was irreversibly spoiled. Seabras comes close to this impossible standard. Deckhands would appreciate their quality - and economical - fare. Their seafood... More

The food was great. Had raw oysters, fried squid and mussels in a marinara sauce. Sat at the bar since service is usually quicker and better. Not this time. Granted the place was packed, however, their were 5 bartenders working the bar. Had to ask for everything. Even a napkin. Shame since the food was excellent. BEWARE: they only took... More

Lively place, and we liked our waiter. The white sangria was definitely made with SunnyD or something similar - not like any white sangria any of us ever had anywhere else. Also, $30/pitcher for the sangria? The two of our party who had seafood both had stomach problems well into the next day.

The food was delicious, perfectly cooked but the service was horrible. The staff neglected us from begging to end. Worst service in Newark. If you handled being mistreated, ignored in order to eat good Portuguese food go right ahead.
