I had a Sunday afternoon dinner with an old friend during a visit to NJ. We had a large platter of seafood, and a pleasant wine from Portugal. The portions were large and the price very fair. I will be back on my next opportunity.

Dinner we ordered a large platter of seafood, fantastic selection and very fresh. The restaurant is easy enough to find, clean with a Portuguese flair, like the blue tiles on the walls, will go back soon.

not the cheapest place to eat in Newark which is famous for the great restaurants in the Ironbound neighborhood. Sol-mar offers a pretty extensive menu, but my suggestion after eating there dozens of time si, stick to fish and bacalhau (salted cod) because no one...More

We were a large group of about forty diners for an evening meal. What we had had been pre-arranged but I was told it was representative of their menu. Everything was excellent as was the service. Highly recommended!

It is as safe as any other urban location. The Ironbound section has several restaurants that are accessed via Newark Penn. Ferry Street takes you there.
How far from the train station is this restaurant?

It's a hike from Penn Station. It's on Ferry St. Not difficult to find. I don't know exactly how long it will take you to walk or even by car as it depends on the traffic and time of day. But you'll see lots of interesting... More
