Iberia Tavern and Restaurant is a Spanish-Portuguese restaurant popular with tourists who come to the Prudential Center and with locals having a private party in one of their banquet rooms..
The restaurant is spacious with a main level dining room and two large banquet rooms above and below the main restaurant for private parties.
The decor is a bit dated --- old school with cathedral ceilings, brick walls decorated with nautical decorative knick knacks, large barbecue pits, and a stainless steel topped bar.
The quality of food at Iberia Tavern and Restaurant fails to rise above the other nearby Spanish-Portuguese Ironbound restaurants, though they offer a very large menu served in huge portions at attractive prices.
Iberia Tavern and Restaurant features ten menu items of Rodizio, a fixed price, all-you-can-eat menu item, containing meats grilled and served on a skewer where waiters bring the meat to your table several times throughout the meal.
Parking is secure and convenient in their 500 car parking lot. Cost is $10, at the end of your meal just give them your parking ticket and they will deduct the cost from the bill.
The service is inconsistent and can vary from being very attentive and friendly, to just adequate.
