Found this restaurant from favorable reviews. Had a reservation for four to celebrate a friends birthday. Guess what?! Overall it was better than I expected. The food was flavorful and well presented. Had one issue with a not so fresh piece of a langostine. My cousin also didnâ€™t care for her steak cut, so this is not the place for beef. The seafood dishes are the reason to go. The bill had a higher than average tip calculated in the bill. When I brought it the servers attention, he apologized and had it removed. However, I get the feeling this is their practice and not an accident. Just keep an eye on your check, dont order beef and youâ€™ll be perfectly fine.
From the red and white sangria, to the garlic shrimp and tarizzo appetizers. Dinner porterhouse steak with crab meat, t -bone steak, chicken, veggies were all awesome! Cooked to perfection. Dessert, cappuccino and espresso. Worth every penny!!
Recently moved to the area and been trying all the different restaurants and currently this is the best place in terms of food, ambiance, everything. You cannot go wrong going here.
Iâ€™m giving this restaurant a top review. But I will start with a negative comment. I went to the restaurant with my wife and daughter 7/27/18 at 8pm for dinner. The area around the the restaurant does not have a lot of parking but the restaurant has free parking. The hostess that seated us was very friendly. The initial waiter that come to our table was the worst waiter I have ever experienced. After looking at the wine list which was pricey, I asked about house wines. The waiter seemed annoyed but brought a bottle of their house red. He then asked us for our food order and we explained to him that we were first time customers and needed more time. His response was to walk away. There was nothing friendly about him at all. A gentleman, who I believe was the manager stopped by our table to ask how we weâ€™re doing. We told him we were first time customers and he reviewed the menu for us, made recommendations about selections, took our order and constantly come back asked how we were doing. We interacted with 3 bus boys during the evening who were extremely friendly. When I thanked the youngest one for helping us, he said you donâ€™t have to thank me Iâ€™m just doing my job. The food was excellent, the portions are huge. If you order the house wine and share food with your party as you spend the evening, this restaurant is a bargain, with great service unless you get the waiter who doesnâ€™t belong in this restaurant.
Got seated in s cute little cave like setting. Large menu selection from appetizers to main course to desserts to alcohol. Had a glass of nice Portuguese Port and a glass of wine. Had Bacalhau a Adega Grill a pan fried cod with veggies in a red sauce. Was amazingly delicious just slightly salty . Also had Paelha Marinheria.The portions where huge. Plenty to take home for possibly 2 more meals. Dessert we had was simple - sorbet. The waiter was very helpful until we placed our order. Then he walked past our table 50 times without asking if we liked our meals or needed anything else. Besides that the food, atmosphere, music was very good. I have been to Portugal so I did expect to have more of an ethnic selection, not your basic Ferry street menu items. I will go back though for sure
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 simpÃ¡tico, comida muito bem confecionada e com uma apresentaÃ§Ã£o 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 proporciÃ³n 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.
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.
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 portuguÃ©s 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.
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.
