I went on a dinner date with my wife. I ordered a rabbit dinner and my wife ordered a pulpo squid. The food was prepared excellently and the service was superb. This restaurant has a warm family style atmosphere. The waitstaff was very attentive to everyone's needs. I'll definitely suggest and will be coming back.

Went for the first time a couple of days ago. While walking from the free parking lot to the restaurant, the aroma in the street from the kitchen was the first indicator that we were going to be happy with our meals. Everything exceeded our expectations. Sauces were so good, we went through two bread bowls sopping it all up.... More

Casa Vasca has been one of our Go-to restaurants when we are in Newark. Unfortunately that will no longer be the case. We were there yesterday evening (Saturday 11/28). The restaurant was crowded, but it always is on a Saturday. Service was terribly slow; they brought the wrong entry to my wife and after they corrected that-they didn't bring her... More

This is my favorite restaurant in the Ironbound. Delicious food and friendly casual atmosphere. Each meal starts with soup which I always enjoy. Then one of the best paellas and red sangria. The only negative is the parking. The restaurant has a very small parking lot that fills up on weekends and street parking can be impossible to find. Best... More

if you like spanish cuisine, the food here is second to none and the sangria is the best around. it's a family owned and operated establishment - and that shines through in every aspect. the service is great, the owners are incredibly kind, gracious and inviting. and the food is simply amazing!

The foods was outstanding along with the service. We were all wishing we had a restaurant in Atlanta that compared to the quality of food we selected. We will revisit the next time in Newark.

We visited this restaurant before a concert we attended at NJPAC. The service was absolutely superb! My water glass was never empty. The food was abundant, and very tasty.

This is a wonderful restaurant. Very charming and quaint atmosphere with very friendly service. The food is tasty and the price is reasonable. I love the seafood dishes with the green garlic sauce. It is also nice that the restaurant has a free off street parking lot.
