Delicious Spanish food. Meal comes with free bowl of soup, (wish they are hot instead of lukewarm). Good service. Very reasonably priced.

The food and service here were excellent! My wife and I went for lunch and really enjoyed it. They start you with a complimentary soup. The day we went it was Leeks and Potato. We then shared Shrimp in Garlic. The bread they give to the table was very good especially when dipped in the garlic sauce. We both ordered... More

Stopped in Saturday night with the family. The chickpea soup and chorizo soup was excellent. The chicken with garlic was good but not great. A little cramped but overall had a nice meal.

Fresh and steamed vegetables are served. Food is well-seasoned, but not heavily seasoned. The soups are excellent; they come with the main course at no extra charge. Main courses have big portions. Fresh and warm Portuguese rolls are served. The appetizer may be ordered in half or full portion; it is in itself a meal! The pleasant and attentive owner... More

Went early on a Saturday 3 o'clock place was filling up I believe due to a Basketball Tournament at the Pru Center. I think this place is probably better for a group versus two people. With two you get jammed at small table near the entrance with a lot of traffic. Service was below par from 2 other visits. Paella... More

What a find. We were tipped off by a Basque Uber driver and it was fabulous. The service was superb if a bit aloof (although they seem to be more chummy with the locals). The food was really really excellent. I had the spicy lobster an my wife had the grilled monkfish and we both felt it was among the... More

Casa Vasca is worth the hour ride for us! Food is always great, big portions and priced right. Waiters are attentive and friendly. Seating is a bit tight but not bad. Nice selection at the bar. We had beer, wine and sangria (very good.) Chicken dishes were made with very thin cutlets (the way we like them), pork chops were... More

My title says it all. Parking is located up the street before you reach the restaurant. Great spot to eat before any event at the Prudential arena which is what I did. Soup included with the meal was tasty and a nice perk. Order anything revolving around the veal and you won't go wrong. The sangria was delicious and the... More

Found this wonderful restaurant on TA. We've been coming to Ironbound area for years always not straying too far from Ferry Street. Last week my daughter and I did and were rewarded by a delicious meal, not-too-crazy atmosphere and well-prepared food. An all-together great experience which I will bring others to for certain. Bravo...
