I love Iberian food and while this is very typical of American Spanish style restaurants the food and service are almost always very good and the wine collection is good and reasonable $

Description
The Spanish Tavern is the premier destination in New Jersey for awarding winning traditional and contemporary Spanish cuisine. Those who have dined with us at Spanish Tavern have come to know us as restaurant they can rely on for superb food, delicious drinks, exceptional service and a gorgeous environment to turn the every day and most special of occasions into warm memories.

New Jersey Monthly Magazine has named Spanish Tavern as Best Spanish Restaurant in Northern New Jersey. Our menu is well rounded, with a large emphasis placed on seafood dishes due to the seaside Spanish regions where the owners are from. Favorites include our Shrimp in Garlic Sauce appetizer, Veal Corunesa, Twin Lobsters, Paella Valencia and Branzino Filet a la Plancha. Our lunch menu is accessible for casual lunch meetups in addition to being a smart choice for a business meeting. A children's menu allows for Spanish Tavern to be a dining option for the whole family.

Our private dining room can host up to 75 guests for any event, including christenings, rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions, reunions and charity events. Spanish Tavern also excels at catering and would be happy to work with you to bring you vision to life.

Come by or call for takeout to see why we're New Jersey's favorite Spanish restaurant!
