We were looking forward to trying this restaurant for a while and it disappointing. The food was too salty, and T he choices were limited. Wait staff was friendly and enthusiastic. The noise level was too high to have a decent conversation. Would I try it again? Not anytime soon.

We ordered about 4-5 Tapas- everything came out super fast - and super hot - the crispy potatoes and hummus are AMAZING- the pumpkin soup was also delicious- if you like dessert definitely get the chocolate lava cake. 2nd time eating there for my birthday - great experience both times

First time at Albarino. Was very impressed with food, drink and service. Had several tapas (4 to be exact, plus a salad). All were outstanding. Had three glasses of wine along with an Old Fashion. The wines were great and the Old Fashion made to perfection (you would be surprised how often we get a bad Old Fashion). Will be back for sure.

Great meal and the service was truly remarkable in this day and age. Had a a variety of tapas and paella all were tasty and not over seasoned. Was my first time there but likely will be back every week!

Very disappointed with the portion sizes for the entrees as related to the price and quality.

Stick with the tapas, Entrees overpriced and lacking.

Servers should know how to properly pronounce the names of the Spanish Dishes.

A $49 dish of 3 tiny lamb chops, chicken cutlet & 2 pieces of chorizo was extremely dissapointing.

For this price, lack of quality, tiny portions and mispronounciation, make the trip to the Ironbound section of Newark for the real deal.

Really enjoyed my dinner at Albarino. It was a little noisy when we arrived but got much better as the evening progressed. The food was excellent. They didn’t quite bring out the tapas and salads in the order that we requested, but that was a minor inconvenience. Really enjoyed our meal there and will definitely return.

Good tapas and good Spanish wines. We tried four different whites by now and liked all of them. They don't overpower the food. We recently tried a Medium-body red which is really good as well. We look forward to their upcoming wine tasting.

The food is usually amazing but wasn’t up to par this time. The calamari was very, very over cooked and the vegetables in all of our dishes were watery. We love this restaurant and will go back hopefully it will be back to its normal high standards.

Exceptional experience! Made a reservation and arrived 7 minutes early, but they sat us right away. Food came out very quickly so I would recommend ordering a couple plates at a time if you’re looking to spend the time. Sangria is the best I’ve ever had. Staff is very friendly and the ambiance is great. My parents thoroughly enjoyed it for their birthday celebration!

Great meal . We did all tapas , food comes out very fast and service was great . Eggplant , chorizo, shrimp , potatoes ( could use more sauce ) and a great salad . They even made me a delish mock-tail . We’ll be back to try the paella .

Only thing is we wish it was a little dimmer all the seat were kind of under pretty bright lights which was a bit uncomfortable.

Only ordered tapas but very filling. The meatballs are delicious. Tried new tapas - eggplant and mixed sausages. Both were great. Beet salad is a treat and easy to share.
Return often.
Murphy is a GREAT waiter.

This was our third time to Albariño and, once again, the food was fantastic. We usually just get tapas (and by “just” I mean we order 8 or so for the two of us 😊), but after previously watching pans of paella go past us, we decided to try it. It was the best paella we had ever had. The seafood was fresh and cook properly - not over cooked, not dry or rubbery. The rice was perfectly seasoned. Other dishes we’ve had before and would recommend are the octopus and the crispy eggplant.

The service this time was a little slow and our waiter was not very attentive. There were also little fruit flies that hovered around us. Nonetheless, those will not deter us from going back to Albariño, but they do preclude me from giving a 5 star rating.

I brought a dining reward that came from open table and they would not honor it. They should not have the benefit of open table if they do not want to be part of the program.
