The food is always plentiful and excellent! The service is friendly and the wait staff personable. It's a good place to go with family and friends.
The staff was very friendly and the food was terrific!
excellent restaurant pleasant atmosphere excellent staff
We were thankfully able to make a last minute reservation here after the restaurant we wer initially planning on going to had an hour wait and we had concert tickets. What a great find. The sangria was great. We had shrimp in garlic sauce which was excellent. I had steak Portucale was was delicious. Everyone else really likes their food too. Parking was tight. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Great restaurants and great service. Dinner portion is huge!
We were in that area at the Prudential Center, it was a close place and a shot in the dark. Food was good, huge portion size. The prices were reasonable. Looked like there was a nice patio area outside, it looked like it would be nice to eat out there during the warmer months. Our waiter was friendly and very helpful. They could find my reservation and accommodated us right away. Overall really we enjoyed our experience there, We would recommend it.
Good not great. Don Pepe is 1,000 times better.
This has to be my favorite place in the Newark NJ area they are top notch food is fantastic and the staff is the best they really care about their customers
This place is fantastic in all aspects food is very delicious and exquisitely prepared the staff is very friendly accommodating to every need
I travel a bunch and try and eat at very good restaurants with a cultural aspect or variety and I can honestly say that the Portucale restaurant is a great place that will not disappoint you I have enjoyed 4 meals there in the past week and they have exceeded my expectations in all areas!
Wow this place has not only fantastic atmosphere great food greater service everything was fresh delicious and satisfying I would recommend 100%
Great service, amazing food, great portions. Can share a paella with 4 people!
Ordered four main courses. All were fantastic. Octopus, Bife Portucale both made to perfection. Also had paelha marinheria, camarao recheado also very good
only one waiter in our area, dinner took over 2 hours, our waiter had about 10 tables, our table was 6 another one was for 8, they should have had at least 2 waiters and a helper in our room, looked like they had another room and no idea if they had more help in that room. food was good and we had a groupon, which made it a great deal. the meal still came out to almost $200 with groupon included. my meal was ok, everyone else loved there melas, would consider trying it again, but if i see one waiter for the one section, i think i will leave
Excellent food and good service. The octopus appetizer is very good and atmosphere was nice. Parking is scarce but worth a walk around the block.
My first visit to Portucale. Impressed with the service and the flavor. Meals (steak and fish) melted. Very impressed. Loved the hospitality.
The food portions are HUGE and delicious! Very well priced for what you receive, the app was delicious although wish we would've skipped it because couldn't finish our entrees! Definitely recommend the white sangria 😬
Side note: our opentable reservation ended up not going through so when we walked in on a very busy night and found this out we were quite worried but they ended up seating us within 5 minutes and service was still excellent!
We were looking for a Portuguese restaurant for dinner for our family before the Devils game. The food was so fantastic that we are looking forward to returning. For the calamari appetizer the rings were very tender and yummy with an excellent marinara sauce. Our children had the filet mignon from the children's menu and loved it. Also we had two types of paella that were outstanding. The paella portions were huge. The dishes were so flavorful and the shellfish was cooked perfectly. This restaurant has an excellent chef. We can't wait to go back.
real Portugese patrons, service, food; fantastic waiters that explain any and everything and are very caring and warm; amazing food.
Not on the main street where the other larger Spanish and Portguese Restaurants are but worth going a little out of the way. Prices are great and the food is excellent. Service very attentive without being over your shoulder.
