Portuguese
From the moment you enter, tones of old world yellows, stone fireplaces, wrought iron cellar gates and sconces, soft candlelight, coves with upholstered sofa seating and friendly staff, it's an undeniable inviting space, nothing short of extraordinary. Two special occasion tables with antique throne chairs and live piano music add to the intimacy. Two romantic dining rooms cater to an elegant crowd, while the long narrow bar gathers a friendly and fun bunch nightly.



The cuisine truly upholds the name of Fine Portuguese/Spanish Dining, seafood and fish, organic meats, the freshest ingredients and to maintain the tradition, huge portions are to be expected. The menu is seasonal and in addition to a varied selection of delectable dishes to satisfy any palette, daily specials are always featured. The wine list with over 180 selections is an ambitious one that keeps growing, but sure not to disappoint the discriminating connoisseur.

    Service was outstanding; however food wasn’t as good as it normally is. We had the penni seafood pasta and that was watery, red snapper, not as tasty and ribeye steak. Steak was good but I requested medium well and it was cooked well. Hopefully this was just an off day, in general Adega is a “fan favorite” of ours. Sangria was exceptional as it normally is 🙂

    We were there the week before and loved it so much that we decided to return again. All of us in our party left with take out containers. The food was wonderful as well as the service. Excellent place to dine.

    We ate outside, as we requested. It was a bit loud—& windy. Not their fault, obviously. But the food was mediocre at best. Big portions, and nicely presented. But really not tasty. Felt like a tourist trap. Not worth it.

    Extremely attentive service in a cozy atmosphere near the fireplace. Ordered the chicken dishes and it was so tender with wonderfully flavored sauces. Portions are very generous so do not overdo the appetizers! They bring this tasty bread and olives as you sip your cocktail and peruse the menu. Great value.

    This is the best restaurant in New Jersey. It is our favorite restaurant. The service is very professional. The food is delicious. The atmosphere is perfect. We almost always order a fish dish. I've had the filet mignon several times and it is excellent. The paella is heavenly.

    Food was very good. Service was professional and amazing. Recommend asking for their recommendation for wine from Portugal and you will get a great glass of wine. The filet served in flame table side was very good as was the sausage app served flame table side. Parking was hard because it was rush hour and we could not find the restaurants free parking lot because the streets were chaos with traffic so we just parked where we could after circling blocks for about an hour. No joke. An hour trying to find a spot and working through the grid lock of traffic. Ended up with parking ticket but honestly it was worth it because I loved the restaurant and the staff were great.

    Went here for mother's day. Waiter was amazing and funny. The food was great. It did take an hour and a half before we got our food but it was worth the wait. Also I can understand as they were extremely busy for mothers day.

    We had a reservation for 7 pm but when we arrived, we had to wait more than a half hour to be seated. What is the point of having a reservation if you have to wait that long to be seated when you arrive?
