Great place to go enjoy a nice drink at the bar or a romantic meal at the restaurant. Excellent food, sangria and desserts.
Went here before a concert for dinner and was not disappointed. The portions are huge and sangria was strong! Yes, you will spend some money, but for the portions and quality it is well worth it! We were in the back room and it did get very loud once it was filled up. We would definitely go back!
Recently visited for a family dinner before a concert at Prudential. Adorable, cozy decor. Friendly attentive staff. Very large portions easily shared . Good authentic food. Will be back!
Muy buen concepto. Excelente lugar tanto el restautant, como el bar y el launge. Bebidas super buenas y precios muy buenos. La comida exquisita.
Very good dinner and 15 minutes from ewr in an uber. Worth the trip for sure. Excellent staff and fresh sea food
I had a long time to go there because in the past i had a bad experience at the lounge so this time we went for dinner during the visit in Newark.They improved a lot but still they need to do more special on the service.Prices they are a little high but the food it was good.Next time i will reserve the table with the basilicos chair so i can have at list a Royal treat on service i hope.
Ive been coming to Adega for years now and they still impress me. The food is always fresh and delicious and the service is always great.
O atendimento foi muito simpático, comida muito bem confecionada e com uma apresentação excelente. Tudo 5 estrelas.
We happened upon this gem while strolling along Ferry Street in the Ironbound neighborhood of Newark. From the moment we walked into the restaurant, we knew it was the perfect choice! Old world charm, a fireplace, waiters in jackets, an extensive menu with an array of Portuguese dishes, and a lovely wine list - perfect! We started with oysters of the half shell, followed by the house salad featuring strawberries, gorgonzola, dried cranberries, apples, and nuts over field greens with a delicious creamy dressing. For entrees we had the lobster and crab stuffed salmon and the mussels in spanish sauce --- both specials of the day and both wonderful. The portions were so large we could not even come close to finishing them, but still found room for dessert and coffee. What a great meal and a memorable night!
Muy buena comidas, estuvimos varios amigos y ordenamos varios platos para compartir y tener la oportunidad de probar mas opciones. Todos estaban excelente. precios un poco caro pero en proporción a la calidad y cantidad de la comida servida Lo recomiendo
In summer it is incredible, they place a chair and tables with an umbrella facing the street. The sangria is spectacular, one of the best I have tasted and my dish super recommended the seafood grill..humm that delight of shrimp, lobster, shells and a rice with delicious juice. However, if you like meat the grilled meat you will love it too, but the grilled seafood wowww.
We found this place luckily since we could not find a restaurant close to the Prudential Center, so we Ubered over here after I found it on the OpenTable app. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful. A great setting for dinner. The menu featured tons of seafood dishes, and we loved everything we ate. They have a great wine list and they were all great. The staff was friendly and great helping us with the menu. Any time I am in this area, I will eat here.
Another great dining experience with friends. Last year during the holidays were invited by friends who frequent Adega Grill. Although the restaurant is quite far for us we decided that it was worth a repeat visit & second time around was even better. The decore is intimate and inviting, the staff is attentive yet not over bearing. As with our 1st visit, started off with the both the portugués chorizo and steamed octopus appetizer. They were both exactly as remembered, absolutely delicious! The octopus was tender and seasoned to perfection (olive oil & paprika) and the chorizo was very tasty which could alone been a meal. For dinner chose the grilled salted cod which was slightly overcooked which didn't impress as much as the appetizers. They have a nice selection of wine and we all decided on the Herdade Do Esporao Tinto Reserva which was quite good, rich and full bodied. Overall, a great night with wonderful company. Would not hesitate on a chance to go back.
We had a private dinner for about 20 people at Adega back in May. Marco took care of us from start to finish with menu and drink options and did an exceptional job. Our guests are still raving about the paella and shrimp. The chorizo and steak are delicious and the portions are generous! My family can't wait to go back for another get together. It's a beautiful restaurant. Thank you for a great experience, every time.
Came here for a Girls' night out. We wanted something different w/fabulous drinks plus I had just got back from Barcelona, I was still in the mood for Spanish/Portuguese cuisine. I ordered the salmon stuffed with spinach, lobster,& crab was everything! Trust me, its an awesome choice!! The others in my party we're also highly satisfied (see pictures below). And let's not forget about the sangria very good flavor AND just the right amount of alcohol!! We had a great time plus our waitress was phenomenal.
Loved the atmosphere, staff was wonderful & very attentive and our food was outstanding! Paella was soooo good. Can't wait to go back again.
This restaurant has a pleasant, grotto style and quiet, comfortable seating/tables where conversation is easily heard. Service was very professional and cordial. I've never had better grilled octopus, and the portion sizes are generous. I'd happily try any of their grilled fish or meats; I didn't love the stuffed shrimp, kind of mushy filling with no crab taste. However, the sides that came with it were excellent, and I probably just made a bad pick on the menu. The wine list was interesting and well-priced. I'd go back, it was a lovely experience. The Ironbound restaurant area was a surprise, a long-time Portuguese neighborhood in Newark - many restaurants and bars there to try and the immediate area was well-populated and seemed safe enough if you stuck to the main street (Ferry). We used On Time Limousine to get there from the Marriott Airport, and he waited for us while we ate and took us back thereafter, giving us an added sense of security.
Great place to eat for anniversaries, birthday, romantic dinner, or date night. I have also taken the family out to eat there and they have requested to go back. We all love their food and service. My favorite meal is Parillada de mariscos for 2. Great deal and meal! Sangrias are good too! I have recommended all my friends and family there and they have all been pleased.
This place was exceptional so were the drinks!!! The parking was free with a stamped ticket. The service was great and the place was huge! Good music (Sade) was playing in the background! A very nice place to visit'
I've been to Adega more than a dozen times, so it's way overdue for a review! I come mostly solo, on occasion with friends, and tend to sit at the bar to eat (the full menu is available here and many people will be eating full meals). The complex has a long narrow bar area and a more traditional dining room next door; there is a club here as well. I am perfectly content to eat at the bar and watch soccer/baseball/football on one of the multiple tvs. The bartenders will take very good care of you-they work as a team so if you need anything just ask the first one you see and she will be happy to help. The food portions are just astounding with high quality to match. One dish that is my absolute must order each and every time is the garlic shrimp. You get an incredibly mammoth portion that is covered in the best garlic olive oil you will ever have the pleasure of tasting. Save the Portuguese bread to soak up the oil and garlic...this is heaven on earth! I would highly recommend accompanying your meal with the house made sangria which comes in pitcher/half pitcher/by the glass sizes. It tastes wonderful and packs a punch. It's simply awesome. Some main dishes I can highly recommend are the pork and clams Alentejana or the flaked cod fish with potatoes, garlic and onion. I've also recently had the clams casino and salmon. You really can't go wrong with anything here, meat, fish or seafood. Don't forget to look at the full page of daily specials in the menu. They really do change it up everyday and you will find some hidden gems here. There are lovely and strong coffees for after dinner and the desserts come from the Portuguese neighborhood. The selection of liquors from Portugal is outstanding with my personal favorite, Licor Beirão. Get a glass straight up...yummy! They do have wifi that can be temperamental, but everything else is so good, I really don't care. Enjoy this slice of Portugal right here in the middle of the Ironbound.
