The cuisine truly upholds the name of Fine Portuguese/Spanish Dining, seafood and fish, organic meats, the freshest ingredients and to maintain the tradition, huge portions are to be expected. The menu is seasonal and in addition to a varied selection of delectable dishes to satisfy any palette, daily specials are always featured. The wine list with over 180 selections is an ambitious one that keeps growing, but sure not to disappoint the discriminating connoisseur.
Met brother and sister-in-law before SHU game at Prudential center. Not far. Private parking lot, thank goodness, very tight neighborhood. Huge portions, very fresh. Very busy, was not ready to order when waiter came to table. Took a long time to get him back and a long time for our food to arrive. When we were ready to leave staff disappeared. We will definitely go back when we are not rushed for time.
One of my favorite spots in Newark for a meal. I typically try and get here early before any Devils hockey game. The food is great and if I am simply waiting at the bar the local vibe is real.
Dinner with family before event at PriCenter.
The entire staff was very friendly and accommodating. Service was great, as was all the food. Everything was delicious! We highly recommend this restaurant and we will be definitely be back.
Have been coming here for years. Food & service never disappoint.
This was my second visit to Adega. This time round, the food wasn't good at all. The Sangria too wasn't as I experienced it on my first visit.
The wait staff are very attentive. Hostess was pleasant and accommodating.
The evening with my wife was highly enjoyable however, I did feel that the servers were in some cases to quick to refill glasses and ask if you were finished - did detract from the overall experience.
Food was flavorful. Sangria was very good but pitcher is filled with more ice than sangria and for the price of each pitcher it’s not a good value. The chorizo flambé was only a half of a chorizo so about 8-9 pieces and for the cost that is a huge markup considering what a full chorizo costs. Overall good but expensive and with so many other good Portuguese restaurants within walking distance I would look at other menus/locations perhaps
This is about my 5th time of going to this restaurant and it actually became our best restaurant but my experience wit my wife on our anniversary during this outing was bad. We got there at the reservation time and not too many guests around. We had our food and drinks served as usual. By 8.30pm less than 1hr of is being inside because we were the one guest left we were been rushed to leave. We noticed waiters waiting continuously pass us. Next 2 of them came at different times to ask if we were done which was rather rude. This was at 8.30pm and this is somewhere we have stayed till like 9.45pm in previous outings. My wife and I decided to have our food packed and leave. Definitely the last time we will go there.
If you're in the Newark area looking for a good meal, Adega Grill is highly recommended. I enjoyed my dinner, especially the paella. Portions are huge so come hungry. The wine list is also extensive and the service is attentive and professional. I'll be back for sure as my family and I enjoyed our 1st visit to this well run restaurant.
Fantastic food and service, beautiful decor, great ambiance and attentive service -- can't wait to go back!
Outstanding food and service. Cozy setting. Menu had a wide variety of options.
We had to spend the night at Newark airport for an early morning flight. We ubered to the restaurant, and it was a great way to start our vacation. Delicious food and very professional wait staff. Would definitely return.
Great Food, Very reasonable prices and awesome staff. Please go and enjoy..
Great food, wine recommendation was great, Vinho Verde is amazing and the seasoning authentic Portuguese
All the seafood and the other specials were very tasty. This is a very nice restaurant for good food.
Took friends who had never been there. They loved it. We will be back
The appetizer has no taste. The entrees are so and so. We are only four people but they include 20% service fee on the bill. Will never go back.
Excellent customer service, drinks were on point. Could use a little updating in the decor. Food was ok, nothing really special. But it was a nice night out. The waitstaff made the experience.
I found the food and portion sizes to be excellent. I got the Paella Marinera and my wife got the Chilean Sea Bass. Both meals were cooked to perfection and were delicious. The service was fantastic. We will definitely be dining at Adega again.
Second time here albeit been a few years.
Excellent food and service.
Having private parking is a nice added touch too
I love the ambiance here, perfect for hosting my graduation party of 8. The food and portion size were ideal, as was the price. The only flaw was one of my guest fish was over grilled but corrected and also the coffee was not hot was another complaint. Other than that, I absolutely loved the sangria, my favorite drink!
We waited over a half hour for our food and the waiter never came back to ask if we wanted refills on our drinks. Two of us ordered bronzini which was extremely over cooked and dry.
When we inquired about the subpar service we were told it was due to them having a party of 30 to take care of.
This is our favorite "go to" restaurant for special occasions. We love Adega Grill!!!
Amazing food and staff is very friendly!!! Delicious!!
Overall, a good experience. The seating at this restaurant is a little narrow and so it makes for a strange kind of ambiance if you are not sitting at one of the more secluded tables. Service was very good as was the food.
The service from all of the staff was incredible. Very attentive and friendly. Can't say enough good things. The food was fantastic. Really delicious! Will go back for sure!
Good food and great service - a nice combination. Walking distance to the Pru Center in Newark, this Ferry Street restaurant did not disappoint. It was recommended by a friend and he was spot on. Good food, service and convenient. Multiple options of Chorizo was a treat!
I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious! Looking forward to returning with friends and family.
Initially were sat at a table in the back, but there was a kid party and our server took the initiative to move us to a quieter location. Food was excellent! A nice discovery. Will definitely return.
Simply love coming here. Food is authentic and very good. The sangria is delicious and the service is top notch.
I went there for date night w/my husband, such a lovely restaurant. Adolfo was so our waiter, very attentive.
The service is awesome and the food is authentic!
I am only in Newark once in a while, but when we go to a show at the Prudential Center we ALWAYS go here! 5 minutes from the venue, yet it couldn't be nicer and just a gorgeous restaurant on the inside. The food is great with a lot of seafood and unique offerings, and a very extensive wine list. Highly recommend it!
Still the best in the ironbound!
High School Reunion at Adega Grill was very nice. Great ambiance and the food is always excellent. Service is also delightful!
Great experience prior to concert. There was a group of 8 of us. We orders sangria and a bunch of appetizers, everything was wonderful
love the place Food, Wine Service, Hospitality. Traffic
ran us late arriving, still got out smoothly, no rush to make on time.l
