Highly recommend a visit to this restaurant in a charming old neighborhood in South River. Clearly a local favorite with wonderful service, updated and fresh interior, and great energy. The food was very good and with generous portions, a great value. Felt like we were eating at the family table of a wonderful Portuguese home cook.
The food is consistently good. Totally enjoyed the meal
Food is excellent. I had seafood and it was seasoned perfectly. Price was right since I had enough to take home for another meal. We've been coming here for years and will continue. Service is top notch.
Good food, good atmosphere. Beware - the paella for 2 can feed 4 👍🏻
The ambience & service was pretty nice. The portions were large but the food was quite bland. Honestly the best part of our dinner was the garlic butter that came with the complimentary bread & the dessert - we had flan.
Always the best food and service. Our server, Sam, was a true gentleman.
All dishes were delicious. We had grilled shrimp and chicken in garlic sauce. Our friend had the ribs. The waiter was very accommodating and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Excellent restaurant! Huge portions and delicious food for the price. The service was wonderful as well - my parents are going to Portugal in the fall and one of the waiters gave them a ton of recommendations for their trip.
Portuguese Fisherman is an excellent restaurant. Great food and the Front Desk young lady was great
I got very sick from the food
Food was delicious!
One word- delicious. The ambiance was great! I will go back again!
The food as always was in point. The server was attentive and informative. However we felt uncomfortable sitting against a brick wall and asked to move to another table. They said the other tables were taken and we couldn’t be moved. I understand we were only two people but our comfort level wasn’t there and for the money we spend and being a frequent customer I thought they should be able to grant our request.
Consistently good food and service. It's nice to know that the dining experience will always be top notch.
My meal came out made incorrectly due to difficulty in the waiter understanding my needs. They corrected part of the issue yet did not correct it all. At that point I just said forget it. The rest of my party's meals were great. Another waiter with whom had waited on me previously came over and apologized and offered a free dessert for the inconvenience. Make sure your waiter understands English so you get your order correct.
As usual, the food was delicious, and made to order. This is one of our favorite places, and it’s always up to par
It's been better on other visits. Bread was cold, and calamari appetizer was gummy/chewy. Table next to us was extremely loud and close.
It is my favorite restaurant of all time! We have been going there for years and bring all our friends there too. A waiter recommended a dessert ( translated to sawdust) and it is remarkable!
Everything was delicious. Service was excellent. Drinks were large. Sangria was awesome. Garlic shrimp could have been a little tastier with larger shrimp. A little noisy. Great value. Can’t wait to go back.
The paella, the shrimp in garlic sauce, and the chorizo were very good, however we were disappointed that there was no flan at 7pm on a Saturday. It was my mother-in-law's birthday, and she had really been looking forward to the flan.
The food and hospitality is amazing! Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice authentic Portuguese meal!
Great service and good food
Great Fathers Day dinner 🍷
The foods delicious. The service and overall value was spot on.
Great specials! Some of the best pork and clams around.
Excellent food and excellent customer service was given to our group. We would highly recommend the Portuguese Fisherman for anyone looking for a delicious meal!
Very Impressed - Service was on point - Food was fantastic - We will be back
This restaurant hasn’t missed a beat in the 30+ years I’ve been going there. Authentic Portuguese food, good sangrias, and professional service highlight this neighborhood gem. I am never disappointed by the quality.
We’ve been going to the Portuguese Fisherman for many years and have always found the food, service and ambiance excellent. It does get a bit noisy at times, but the food is worth overlooking it. Their red Sangria is terrific. Service is always professional and you never have to ask that your water glass be filled.
The food was not only excellent, but in large quantities. My husband and I wanted garlic shrimp as our entree which is on the menu as an appetizer. They were extremely accommodating and made it for us. Only order it if you love garlic, which we do, as I said before it was great.
We have dined here many times and enjoyed the food once again.We were 7 people and a two ordered
steak and were disappointed.Order the fish and seafood and you can't go wrong
We were seated promptly. Service and food were great. Quantity and quality were exceptional. Only problem was noise level made it difficult to communicate.
Fabulous as always! We have been going there for years.
Everyone has a bad night. My husband’s steak was a bad cut and cooked horribly. We will be back, but hope it doesn’t happen again.
Great value. Seafood was delicious. Very relaxed atmosphere.
Your restaurant was recommended by the lovely girl who helps me take care of my house. She was so right in her bragging about the food and service. We truly enjoyed ourselves and will be back. Thank you.
Wasn’t given chance to sample taste 2 bottle of wine instead was just opened and poured. Silver had to be polish by myself as it had fingerprints on them. Food was ok to good.
We are never disappointed when we come here. Food is always fresh and delicious. Service is exceptional
We had a surprise engagement for our daughter with her BF coming from the military and the staff was so nice and felt so apart of our journey. They opened a bottle of Champagne on the house to celebrate with us.,And also a picture of sangria to appreciate the service of our active family member . The food was excellent !! The atmosphere was perfect !!
