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.
Awful service. Chicken and carmelized onion pizza had a sour taste. Was not good at all.
Great food, lovely ambiance, excellent service! We had a great date night.
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.
Great find! Love the selection of tapas, we tried a few different items and have a very nice bottle of wine. Service was great, highly recommend.
Great service at the bar. Food was great as usual.
Everything was delicious and we’ll be bCk soon!
Very rarely saw our server which was a bit disappointing, we had to flag him down a few times. But the food and vibe were great! Beautiful restaurant!!!
Excellent food, wine and service
Food was flavorful and fresh. Staff was great and music was great!
A frequent night out for us at Albarino’s. Never disappoints!
The menu is very diverse and the service is excellent!
Paella was bland. Tapas good.
They exceed expectations each and every time had some newer items this time in the tapas arena and was blown away as usual
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!
We were seated outside and the weather was perfect for that. Our server was great and all the tapas we ordered were excellent.
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.
The tapas small plates - garlic shrimp
and humus were excellent and they had a good wine selection. I really like the ambiance and the wait staff were great.
The staff were super friendly!! Very accommodating of allergies and our requests. The bartender (Devin) was extremely helpful with our wine picks.
The. Food. Was. Amazing. Get the paella!!
We absolutely love the tapas at Albariño! I’m so happy we discovered this restaurant a few years ago! The food is consistently delicious, atmosphere is peaceful and service is great! We were in and out within an hour, totally worth it! Highly recommend, reminds us of when we were in Barcelona!
Amazing food and service!
Great server, Megan, made our overall experience even better. The food was great. The dining room was a little chilly and loud but overall a great experience.
It’s fun to try a variety of foods made incredibly well. Every dish was unique and tasty. Especially loved the eggplant. I will go back for the paella next time. Great job
Tables too close and extremely noisy. Could hardly talk to each other
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.
Murphy is a GREAT waiter.
It was very noisy and the service was terrible. We had the paella with was average with terrible sangria. Disappointing over all!
Sangria is excellent
Always the best!
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.
Our dinner was wonderful. Mert, our waiter, was so friendly and accommodating. He was great!!! He knew the menu and was very helpful with our orders.
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.
Everything is great and so different from other local restaurants. Menu is a mix of large and small plates. The service was excellent and knowledgeable. Fabulous outdoor space (in a time of pandemic).
Our 10th visit. Expanded apps menu, new entrees and and always good wine list were welcome experiences. Highly recommend
