This is a nice restaurant, convenient to the Prudential Center & NJPAC with their own parking lot. 6:30 reservation on Thurs 4/6 was promptly honored & the manager asked if we had any time constraints they should be aware of since several tables had Devils jerseys on & I assume others like us were seeing Jackson Browne @ NJPAC.

We apologize if your meal didn't meet our normal standards. This is very unusual to read, and we're quite sorry that the clams casino and paella weren't fantastic. We know we're capable of much better and would appreciate another chance to impress you. Best, Andres, Manager More

Right in downtown Newark. The Valencia green sauce added to the fresh branzini, the slight hint of laurel, oregano and rosemary added to the rice dishes, and the fresh salads offered (not to mention the exceptional sangria!) --- these are the perfect touches that make Fornos the perfect go-to spot. NJ Transit running late? Arrive early for a show at... More

Had our annual post-Yankees Opening Day dinner here and it did not disappoint. We put ourselves under the guide of our well informed waiter and he designed a perfect dinner for our group of 6. The food was excellent, the staff attentive, and the atmosphere was great as well. The waiter combined lobster, mussels, calamari, clams, and scallops for a... More

Huge portions, endless options, great service. It helps if you speak Spanish. You can't go wrong with seafood. I've been there on a date with one and in a group of 10. Both times were impressive. You will have leftovers to bring home! Order the Sangria... it's killer.

We hit traffic and were late for our reservation by about 20 minutes, but they were still able to seat us within about 5-10 minutes. We were surprised by a complementary salad, which was very good, and welcomed as we were quite hungry at that point. The main dish was nicely seasoned and there was enough food to take home... More

Have valet parking so easy if you drive. Property is very well kept. Reception was professional. Noise level a bit high. Ambiance fits. The menu is varied and full of exciting items.
