A Newark, NJ Restaurant Review
130-132 Ferry St.
Note: Four star Rating System from no stars = poor to Four stars = Best in Class
One of the top Portuguese - Spanish restaurants in The Newark Ironbound section
Ambiance is upscale and cozy
Sangria carafes a bit pricey
Noise Level: Moderate
Recommended For: Ironbound diners who enjoy high end Spanish-Portuguese dining.
Not Recommended For: Budget conscious diners who prefer more traditional Spanish-Portuguese dining
Recommended dishes: When available, Polvo a Feira with Boiled octopus, drizzled with olive oil, paprika; The Salmao Recheado with Grilled salmon stuffed with spinach, lobster and crab meat in veneza sauce, served with sauteed potatoes and fresh vegetables; and The Bife a Cowboy Texano with Grilled prime rib steak with sauteed spinach, mushrooms and Spanish sausage, served with roasted potatoes and saffron rice.
Liquor: Full Service Bar with an extensive wine list .
Adega Grill is not your typical Spanish - Portuguese Ironbound restaurant noted for their glitz, flashing neon lights, and packed crowds who have come for the huge potions of food.
Overall, it's one the best fine dining experiences in the Ironbound section of Newark.
This restaurant is more upscale, cozy, and romantic than the typical Ironbound restaurants.
The decor is done up with soft tones of yellow, stone fireplaces, wrought iron wine cellar gates, soft candlelight, and coves with upholstered sofa seating, and stone fireplaces
A long narrow dining area leads to a bigger and more attractive dining area in the rear. The bar area is vibrant, and is set in a narrow space
While the acoustics are good, this is a vibrant place and if you prefer a quiet intimate dining experience, ask for the larger rear dining room, it's quieter.
The food is well prepared with a seasonally changing menu using fresh fresh ingredients served in large portions
The wait staff is very friendly and attentive.
They offer sidewalk dining on Ferry Street
Free parking is available around the corner on Madison Avenue.
