Once again enjoyed an excellent meal at the Spanish Tavern last week. The food and service were exceptional. This is my #1 stop for dining when in Newark!

Unequivocally the best food in the City. I have never been disappointed!!! The lunch menu is very fairly priced, the wine selection is enormous and the complimentary soup provided at lunch is always a winner. Can't say enough good things about this establishment.

They were very pleasant with their service. The baked salmon was huge but tasty! The soup was wonderful and the atmosphere is very charming.

Nice restaurant. Very accommodating staff- Large portion size. I had a piece of salmon and it was huge, and very good too. If you skip going into New York City for dinner, this is a very good alternative!
