I was in the restroom and there was water on the floor in a corner. I mentioned it to a young woman who worked there, she walked over, said she didn't know what it was from and left the bathroom never sending anyone in to clean it up. There was a smell in the restroom which permeated to the dining room. Not sure if it was a mold smell or ??? My mothers fish looked strong and tasted terrible. We exchanged for shrimp which seemed much better. I don't think I will be returning to this restaurant.

Last time we were there about 6 months ago it was quite good so when we wanted to take our friend out to dinner before he moves away, we thought it was a good choice. I guess summer Wednesdays are not the day to go. Empty except for two other tables. Our waiter rushed us, the food was not really good. Thank god for really expensive sangria. Zero ambiance. My prawns were so over cooked they were like rocks. Barely could get a steak knife through them. Spanish potatoes came as one congealed lump of half cooked flavorless mess. Inedible. Sandy paella. I’m turned off for good

The food is absolutely outstanding. Next time I would like to sit inside. The outdoor space is a very lively atmosphere. Eli was our server and he was excellent. Our food was on time hot and delicious. We were a table of 8 on July 3rd during the fireworks display and our meal was still served perfectly. I recommend all the seafood and rodizio!

Only concern was the bugs. Lots of bugs and flies on this hot summer night. Wish there was a remedy. We spent alot of time waving away insects from our plates and table.

We always go to this restaurant . We waited about 1hour to order our appetizers . No servers were available. We had to ask for someone to come take our order . Also the same situation for our dinner order . Service was horrible on this day .
Makes me think twice to continue dining at this restaurant .

It was a 65th birthday celebration.. we all had a great time,the food and service was very good. We were having such a great time we forgot to take pictures. I wish the waiter had asked to take a group picture for us or the Armory could invest in an instant camera and do a complimentary pix on such occasions.

All in all the experience was great. The food was plentiful and seemed fresh. The servers were very polite and friendly. We did not have to wait long for the food or any service. The only thing a few of us noticed was the horrible music they were playing. My better half mentioned it to me and even thought of saying something, but didn't want to upset anyone there. I know music is a personal choice, but they were playing some type of hip hop new style (garbage) music if you ask me. Something more appropriate would've been easy listening music or even instrumental. No words! It definitely clashed with the ambience of the place.

My husband and i had dined at this restaurant years ago and loved it. We invited family out to dinner for an early Christmas get together. Everyone had a great time and loved the food and the service. All said they would be coming back and would be recommending to others they knew about Seabeas. So glad we made the choice to drive the distance to dine here.

Every year I take my office staff The Manor in West Orange.
This year we went to The Armory.
Prior to Hurricane Sandy, The Armory was always great food. Now since remodeling it's really classy. The bar is great. The dining is fantastic.
Prices are really a bargain considering the helpings and quality.
I was concerned that my staff would be disappointed but they weren't. Goodbye Manor!

The food never disappoints. Great service. On the waterfront but the outdoor view is ruined by some kind of big, ugly, wooden walkway or something like that...such a shame, only good from the bar. We don't usually eat inside, so I don't know much about that. My husband loves this place & we have his birthday there every year. He loves the rodizio & I love the soft shell crabs. We also go & have lunch at the bar sometimes so we can have a nicer view & good food & drinks. Great sangria.

The oysters are small but very good, maybe because we are out of season. The mariscada with the green sauce was a delight, as well all other guests in our table enjoyed their food as well. Overall the location seems really nice, we got there late afternoon so it was already very laid back atmosphere, somewhat romantic being waterfront located.

They did a great job Start to finish , we were a small group of 10 friends from out of town , from the time we showed up we were treated like guests , our tale was ready when we arrived but several were late due to traffic getting into the area , we were offered a drink at the bar while we waited , once we were all there and seated , the waiter recommended the Sangria.. great choice .. we had 7 pitchers ..lol ..
I asked him to recommend a few starters .. he told me he would take care of it .. he decorated the table with several different dishes .. we all shared .. it was awesome .. we were not rushed at all .. he asked what time we would like to eat and gave us plenty of time to catch up and talk .. once it was time to order we again asked his recommendations and he did not disappoint.. we all ate well and took home a doggie bag

Over all experience was great! I will say , We had one of our secretaries calling the Armory all day on Friday and she was unable to get thru.

I myself called the main number number several times without anyone picking up or even a machine coming on. Finally I went online to make a reservation.

I also attempted to call on Monday just after 5pm , My party had arrived but did not check in and I wanted to make the Hostess aware that my party (9 poeple ) was at the bar waiting for me and again I was unable to get thru , But this time I did have the option to leave a voice message . Which I did not. I had my party check in and they were seated .

We made reservations for dinner through open table. When we arrived for dinner the girls working as hostess were clueless. Our reservation requested to be at a table with water view. The hostess decided because it didn't state inside or outside no table would be reserved, better communication is needed between these girls. The inside hostess assumed because the reservation said table by the water it would be outside, and the outside hostess said she didn't reserve a table because it didn't specifically say we wanted outside seating. They had my phone number and email with reservation would have been smart if someone thought to pick up the phone and call. Got us a table within 20 mins and food and service were excellent, especially Isa!

The armory has very good food and is great for a bunch of people to get together and go out to eat. The tables are alittle too close together that there is no privacy so it's definitely not a romantic place to go to!!

I found the food to be below average and over-priced. Our server was a very lovely young woman, although a bit slow in a restaurant that wasn't crowded. When I arrived, I had changed my reservation from 4 to 2 online and the woman told me she didn't get that. The older woman of the two receptionist got very snippy and told us that we would have to basically have to be a "walk in" because she didn't have any tables for two. She then changed her mind and led us to a small table by the kitchen, no view, no ambiance at all. The restaurant was clearly not full and there were plenty of tables through out our entire meal. I would not go back, there are much better restaurants.

This is a good resturant that needs someone to organize their service. The food is wonderful, but the waiters are completely out of sync with the meal service.
