    Great Portuguese food without the airfare in an airy quasi tropical setting. Attentive and eager to please staff. Parking lot and street parking limited but well worth the effort. Will be back for sure.

    Very nice me, my lady and friends love to dine there. This time i would recommend for the servers to speak a bit more English. I know it's a Portuguese restaurant but still. Overall i love it there. Also the parking is an issue so be alert.

    The food was delicious! The restaurant is not big and they had a few kids running around and that’s a safety hazard. Other than that the service was very good. Very attentive service. Will definitely go again

    The waitress was very rude and had a lot of attitude. When I asked for more napkins she replied with “again”. Definitely not coming back, also way to many lights didn’t feel like a cozy upscale restaurant more like a pub.

    It was our first time there. The food was good, the service was a little off. As the restaurant got busier the service was lacking. My husband ordered a coke and asked a second time. It came when he was halfway through his meal. The sangria was delicious. There was a couple that entered and the man did not wear a mask and he was very loud and obnoxious. He was blocking the door as my husband and I were leaving. I’m sure it wasn’t the norm but I did feel uncomfortable with the situation.

    This is the first Open Table restaurant we really didn’t like. The wait staff stood behind a counter just steps from our table and talked to each other throughout our entire time there. Although the restaurant was virtually empty (we went at an off hour) we were told we could not have a window seat because they were for parties of 4. During our entire visit, not a single party of 4 came in. We ordered a diet soda and were told they don’t carry diet soda. What restaurant today doesn’t offer diet soda? In a city with many options for Portuguese and Spanish food, the food was passable - nothing special. The server was just “getting the job done” and not engaged at all. To it’s credit, the restaurant was beautiful and the bathrooms impeccably clean. With so many other great options in Newark, we won’t be back.

    I was pleasantly surprised with the squid appetizer. I initially did not like to order but Im glad we did. Maybe the restaurant can have a sample dish in a small plate for new customers, like a taste test. Overall I like it and will be back on my mom's 78th bday in the next couple of weeks.

The food was delicious, with very generous portions. We didn’t eat outside, but we did take a peek and were anxious to get back to give that a try!
