I have tried many rodizos outside of the Iron bound, but nothing compares. Iberia is very consistent with producing their menu over the years. The service is top notch. It was my 12yrs son first visit and he loved the meat selections. We will come back as they never disappoint.

Very nice restaurant in the Portuguese section of Newark also known as the Ironbound section. Cool, ethnic area with great smells and many restaurants to choose from. This was my second visit to this restaurant. From the minute you walk through the big, wooden doors, it feels like you are in an old restaurant in Spain. I had the chicken... More

After hearing so much about the Newark Ironbound restaurant section we decided to try out Iberia Peninsula, famous for their rodizio. We were six couples celebrating our friendship. The restaurant was not too busy and we soon found out why. The server was not knowledgeable and he had to ask the kitchen before he could respond to our questions about... More

Started off wanting to sit in main dinning area were there were tables open but for some unknown reason had to sit in the bar room. Waiters were sloppy and the place looked like they just had a wedding and they didn't clean up that well. I had the pork and clams and my wife had the seafood pot with... More

There are lots of good restaurants in the area that make good paella, I think this is one of the best. It seems that everyone in my family agrees, we continue to go back year after year, very good service even though most of the time is very busy, I always get good service.

The food was excellent. We had a seafood paella dish and some rodizio. Their sangria was good as well. The paella platter was more than enough to feed 4 people. There were 13 of us. The only bad thing is that they charge for an extra plate. The prices were reasonable. We went on a weekday so it was not... More

Worst Rodizio ever! and I'm probably being kind because the appetizers were good. Their website represents the Rodizio as their trademark dish and lists filet mignon as being include. No steak at all was included and when we asked we were told they had beef ribs and roast beef all charred, burned and coated with salt if you like that,... More

The food here is always good, but the service sucks. We had four different waiters last night as the first one got bust with other people and three more came.
