Description: The Spanish Tavern is the premier destination in New Jersey for awarding winning traditional and contemporary Spanish cuisine. Those who have dined with us at Spanish Tavern have come to know us as restaurant they can rely on for superb food, delicious drinks, exceptional service and a gorgeous environment to turn the every day and most special of occasions into warm memories. New Jersey Monthly Magazine has named Spanish Tavern as Best Spanish Restaurant in Northern New Jersey. Our menu is well rounded, with a large emphasis placed on seafood dishes due to the seaside Spanish regions where the owners are from. Favorites include our Shrimp in Garlic Sauce appetizer, Veal Corunesa, Twin Lobsters, Paella Valencia and Branzino Filet a la Plancha. Our lunch menu is accessible for casual lunch meetups in addition to being a smart choice for a business meeting. A children's menu allows for Spanish Tavern to be a dining option for the whole family. Our private dining room can host up to 75 guests for any event, including christenings, rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions, reunions and charity events. Spanish Tavern also excels at catering and would be happy to work with you to bring you vision to life. Come by or call for takeout to see why we're New Jersey's favorite Spanish restaurant!

Reviewed April 6, 2013

Great service - attentive, professional, unintrusive.
Wonderful cuisine - Spanish and Portuguese mainstays and specialities
Fresh seafood - the menu always has fresh fish, lobster, and shellfish
Enjoyable from the time you sit down until you leave, sated but not stuffed.

We had lived for many years in this area of New Jersey, and leaped at the opportunity to dine at the Spanish Tavern. The servings were generous, the food delicious, and the service good and efficient. Would gladly return.

“Spanish Tavern Never Disappoints”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

I have been coming to Spanish Tavern for many years. I have never been disappointed with my meal. The food and the service are excellent. We started off with a pitcher of white Sangria. We had the garlic shrimp for an appetizer and I had the mariscada in green sauce as my entree. Everything was delicious and the portions were generous. My wife had the steamed twin lobsters and was very happy with her choice.
You can't go wrong with this place!

“Truly a dining experience.”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

The service and food quality are very good. Exceptional are the shrimp in garlic sauce as an appetizer and stuffed lobster as an entree. Make a reservation to shorten your wait time.

“Excellent Spanish food. Full Menu. Friendly Service.”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

My dad introduced me to this place last weekend. It was a Saturday evening and the place filled up quickly. They have a valet parking lot, as there is little parking on the street. The menu is rather large, yet all the dishes we ordered were splendid. The service was friendly and we did not feel rushed whatsoever. Some of the dishes that were especially were prepared was the halibut, the grouper and the sea bass. The flan was also done very well. I would come back here again.
