The cuisine truly upholds the name of Fine Portuguese/Spanish Dining, seafood and fish, organic meats, the freshest ingredients and to maintain the tradition, huge portions are to be expected. The menu is seasonal and in addition to a varied selection of delectable dishes to satisfy any palette, daily specials are always featured. The wine list with over 180 selections is an ambitious one that keeps growing, but sure not to disappoint the discriminating connoisseur.
Outstanding food and place. The only reason why i cant give it a five is because we were seated to close to the door and it was too cold everytime someone open the door. They should have a better heating system.
Very good food, Great service from wait staff. Attractive restaurant. I would recommend this establishment.
Terrific dining experience. Food was delicious and plentiful and the service was superb!
Love the food there. I am always amazed
Happy Birthday Amore Mio.
Great make over from when I dined there several years ago. Food was delicious and the servers were very accommodating.
Overall good experience. Would recommend to friends and family.
Every dish was outstanding. The upgrades to the decor and bar area are magnificent. Best shrimp and garlic app and grilled Octopus I’ve had and I have eaten both of them in hundreds of restaurants. The service is fabulous . Wait staff very pleasant and attentive . Wine list is very good , not huge , with a stress on the top Spanish and Portuguese wines !
You will not be disappointed!!
Amazing food, clean and beautiful inside, and the staff was so friendly. I will be back!
We very much enjoyed our dinner. The seafood is fantastic. The renovations are now finished; the bar area is impressive.
That was the best meal since a longtime! The place was cozy and warm!
The place was beautiful, the staff was beyond amazing! From the hostess to our server Aldo and every person that came to our table! Food was amazing, me and my friends will definitely be back!
Had Christmas dinner at adega. I haven’t been there since Covid began. Food was great! The place looked great !
First time going out for Christmas instead of cooking. This will be my go to place for now on for the holidays. Everything about my experience was exceptional.
We had Christmas Dinner out! Great experience! Food was awesome! Baked clams were amazing! I would stick to
the grilled items or the fish. I didn't love the the 2 chicken dishes we ordered-francaise and garlic. Chicken was thick and chewy. The grilled skewers-to die for!! Skirt steak-amazing!
It was a little pricey. The menu prices were written in and were more expensive than what the online menu prices said. I didn't like that.
Service was very slow due to a concert in the area that night
First visit after a show at the Prudential Center. One word to describe our experience is "Superb". Staff was knowledgeable and very attentive. Menu was extensive and diverse. Everything we had was excellent. Will definitely be returning.
Delicious food, good martinis. Long wait for the drinks. Love the free parking.
The service was exceptional and the food & sangria was good. I had stuffed shrimp and the mister had lamb chops.
Also, they have free parking around the corner.
Menu changes along with smaller food portions since renovations have swayed me from give 5stars across the board! Service is always amazing!!!
Great service great menu great sangria, convenient parking
Once again my entire family was happy with the food and service.
Been coming here since it was just a bar. I have seen it evolve to what it is now. BEST SANGRIA EVER!
This is one of the Portuguese oriented restaurants in the heart of the Portuguese section of downtown Newark. Lots of waiters around but they seemed to be indifferent to the clientele; despite the restaurant being half empty late on a Sunday evening, it took awhile to get our drink & food orders. We had a seafood paella, which was quite good, & a shrimp recheado (some of the shrimp were slightly overcooked). Portions are very large but so are the entree prices. Nice atmosphere and worth a try.
Exceptional experience, I hadn't been here is years. Probably the most perfect service staff ever, from top to bottom. Super responsive and caring to every need. Will be back for sure. Food is exceptional also.
From the front door to the seats, to the rest room this establishment is first class. The food was presented well, by a more than competent wait staff, but most of all it had incredible flavor. Perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection is not easy when you have delicate seafood, and cuts of meat that require specific attention, these folks provide that special attention. If your palate insists on premium spirits, you will also have top shelf bourbon, scotch, cognac and more to choose from.
You will not be disappointed with your experience at Adega Grill.
The food was quite good. Our table received poor quality service, no refills of water glasses, slow to respond. Server repeatedly walked by our table without checking in; it was a challenge to flag him down. Appetizers came out at all different times. Inventive desserts, good wine list, creative main courses. Very clean.
Great service and great food
Great wine list. Food was excellent. Professional wait staff - very attentive! Free parking around the corner. Will be back!
Excellent food and great service. Free parking up the street is very handy in that part of Newark. Cost is a little high but worth it.
Great food and friendly staff!
The service here amazing. Food even better. Ambiance beautiful
Great ambience and service. Food was delicious and portions were quite generous. Great wine list/mixed drinks as well. Would highly recommend and look forward to going back.
Great food and service
The first time I ever came here with my mom we had an overall great experience! The inside of the resturant is so warm decorated with fireplaces. The food and presentation was amazing and the staff was always so nice.
I dont know what happened last night but for me and my boyfriends anniversary I decided to take him here and i was extrememly upset with the poor experience right from the start. They sit us down and we get menus but no drink menus?After waiting a while (no one came to the table yet at all) i had to ask a random waitor for a drink menu. Then after waiting even more time our waitor finally comes over doesnt even greet us, himself or anything just comes to the table, standing there with his pen and paper looking at us... We put in our drinks but I was so upset I had to get up and leave. To pay all that money for an experience like that was not the kind of date night I wanted to have.
Too crowded, music too loud, appetizers came out 30 minutes then food 10/15 minutes after. $150+ steak that had a lot of fat and 10oz filet looked like a 6oz. Never again.
We went for my husband birthday and I must say I’m happy with my choice. The food was great. we are seafood lover so there was plenty of options for us, portion was good. Overall no complaint!
They never disappoint. Our go to place before Red Bulls game. Highly recommend it. Food and service are the best.
