From the moment you enter, tones of old world yellows, stone fireplaces, wrought iron cellar gates and sconces, soft candlelight, coves with upholstered sofa seating and friendly staff, it's an undeniable inviting space, nothing short of extraordinary. Two special occasion tables with antique throne chairs and live piano music add to the intimacy. Two romantic dining rooms cater to an elegant crowd, while the long narrow bar gathers a friendly and fun bunch nightly.



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.

The ambiance of Adega is one that speaks for its self. Great service combined with great food always makes it a great time! Will continue to enjoy lunches and dinners as I have for years in the past!

Impeccable service! Delicious food! I’ve been 2 times now. I’m will definitely be back to Adega and will bring the rest of my family. The staff was very polite and I did not have to ask for anything. Love this place

Agega Grill was an excellent dining experience. The menu is super, our meals were very, very good. The staff was helpful and professional. The food and wine is reasonably priced. The Grill is a great choice.

Food not bad; but overly greasy and not terribly flavorful. Did not get much value for an overpriced restaurant.

Went on a family special occasion dinner, with four children 5,7,9,11. No a long wait to get food, children enjoyed, bread, shrimp in garlic sauce, portabello mushroom and their main dinner. Which included all kinds of meat. We all now love Adega.

Very nice ambiance. We were there early on a Tuesday evening so the place was empty. Our service was great but I don’t know what it is like when the restaurant is full.
We ordered two types of paella and a skirt steak. All of our food was delicious and prepared to taste. The paella portions were enormous. I highly recommend sharing one order for two (or even three people if you are also supplementing with other items).

Overall it's a great see food restaurant. My lobster and crab legs were slightly overdried, but I'm sure it was just my luck as usually. Good spot for fancy see food dinner

We greatly enjoyed the menu here, with so many seafood and meat options. The portobello stuffed with crabmeat, garlic shrimp, filet mignon flambe, and ribeye are what we went with this time around and I would recommend any of those dishes. The drink menu is very nice, and their martinis were well made. We look forward to going again to try different things off the menu.

I’ve been going to Adega for years and I’ve never had a bad meal! The service is great and the food is amazin. I recommend the garlic shrimp for appetizer and either the churrasco or the Picadera Adega for dinner!

When our original New Years Eve plans got scuttled we scrambled to find a comparable reservation and were very lucky to land one at Adega Grill.

We had a great experience here. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent and I would go so far to say that this is my new favorite restaurant in the Ironbound.

This is our favorite restaurant in NJ. The food is superb. We come several times a year
but every NYE for the last 12 years. The paella is excellent. The chilean sea bass is
great. The service is excellent.

The ambiance was spectacular, appearing like a wine cellar with vines, reminiscent of an inn in Europe. The appetizers we had were to die for. The paella was amazingly authentic. And the sangria was out of this world. Service was very attentive and terribly friendly. Two thumbs up.

The best was ambiance and service.Disappointed with the food.
I've had lunch in the bar side of this establishment and the food was much better.
May be just a bad night.Pricey, but when food is good and the overall experience is above average price becomes secondary in my opinion.
