“pretty good for NJ”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Pretty good tapas here and convient to the train station. Not NYC, but worth a trip for the locals. The shrimp was yum and spicy.

“Average food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Went to Cervantes with a group of friends. There were 8 people total and the staff was very accommodating to our larger crowd. The wait staff was very attentive (we were the only group in there for awhile though). Had a few appetizers. The flat bread pizza was very good. I ordered a chicken dish that had a sauce (can't remember the name of it) that was very good. I also shared a friends paella. It was just ok. The scallops were minuscule and it was lacking in any flavor, very bland..

“Overpriced and underwhelming.”
Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

Nice atmosphere. Good service. Mediocre food. Friend and I shared Tapas. Very small portions and just average taste. Goat cheese salad with cranberries and walnuts was lacking goat cheese, cranberries and walnuts and oh yea, made with romaine instead of spinach. Dressing tasted like veg. oil and nothing else. Very disappointed. Will take the trip to Newark for good P/S food.
