    We had to wait 45 minutes after placing our order for the food to arrive. When it finally did, the salmon was barely warm and the rice and veggies were ice cold. While we were waiting, I asked for some bread and the server said they didn't have any more. Very disappointing, since this restaurant was recommended to us. There are so many wonderful Portuguese/Brazilian restaurants in this area, but sadly, not this one.

    The waiter was very helpful in assisting us make some good choices for us to share. The food was very good and the service was great. Pleasant atmosphere, so happy they had valet parking as the street is very congested couldn’t imagine if we had to find parking. Amazing dessert, cookie with chocolate cream my grandson ordered but the waiter brought 4 spoons so we could taste. Will definitely go back.

    We visit Casa De Paco six times yearly; we like it here. We always find the food excellent, and the service is friendly. One item that needs to be corrected is getting the basics to the table. After asking for water and bread for our meals, the water didn't arrive until the end of the meal, and the bread never arrived.

    The food was absolutely delicious. Everything was full of flavor! Nothing disappointed. Even the drinks were great! This restaurant knows how to do it all and well! Ordered tons of tapas to share and you don’t leave hungry. For tapas style there is still a good portion of everything and allows you to taste it all! The staff is attentive and takes pride in their work. We will be back and bringing more friends.

    Unusually empty for a Sunday evening, as I recall this place always being packed. The tapas were okay; we had the Chicken in garlic sauce, Piquillo peppers, caldo gallego (quite good). The paella, touted as the best in New Jersey, was not bad, though the chorizo had a strong cumin flavor, not really indicative of authentic Spanish. All in all, expected ambiance, a bigger crowd, and slightly better food from this place which is highly touted.

    Casa d’Paco is an awesome find! Super friendly staff, from the valet to the hostess to our server! Excellent Spanish beers on tap! Delicious, and reasonably priced bottle of wine. Amazing selection of tapas. We ordered 6 tapas for the two of us and it was plenty of food. Also, they let us split up our order so it all didn’t come out at once!! A great experience.. highly recommend!

    This is a must visit experience. The service was great. The food was authentic. We started with some tapas dishes. The crabcakes, the garlic shrimp, and the avocado dip were all delicious. Then of course we had the paella which was fresh and big enough to split.

    Went there after reading many yelp reviews. Great food, good service although I felt there were too many serving staff for such a small place. I didn’t count but I believe there were at least 6 of them less than 8 tables. Felt they bumped into each other. By the way, it is close to Newark airport, about 12 minutes away.

    The waiter was very friendly and attentive. We went for my sister in law and her husband's birthday dinner. We brought a cake and he was kind enough to light the candles for us and gave us complementary coffee to enjoy with our cake. On top of that their white wine sangria and their food was delicious. I think their paella is one of the best in New Jersey. I would definitely recommend to my friends and family; will definitely go back one day.

    Impressive, indeed! Newark is a little more than an hour's drive (without traffic), so we're almost never in the area. But our NJ friends suggested we try something authentic Spanish, and Case de Paco seemed to fit the bill. We shared a handful of tapas, all of which were very good. I'd say the grilled squid and Cajun tuna were among our favorites. The boquerones were perfectly pickled and sweet, and the zamburiñas a galega (scallops) were also yummy. They had a pork tapas dish with three preparations (can't recall the name), which was outstanding, especially with the dipping sauce on the side. We enjoyed a pitcher of white sangria and a bottle of their "house" red wine, along with one of their deserts to share. At $150 per couple (+ $5 valet parking), the price to value was right where it should be. I'd very much recommend Case de Paco. Really an excellent choice and worth the one-hour drive.

    Amazing food. Amazing service! Make sure you make reservations in advance as it is pretty popular. The tapas are their specialty and you can never go wrong with the warm tapas. They don't have a wide variety of wines, but the ones they won't disappoint you!

    The hostess was nice. Other than that everything else was bad. Steaks were very fatty. Service after taking our orders was non existent. We had to track down another waiter to get our check so we could pay and get the heck out of there. Never bothered to ask if we wanted coffee/dessert. Very disappointing experience for our party of 6.
