We love Fornos! The food and service staff are always on point! Our meal was delicious!
The ambiance is wonderful as always and the food delicious! The service is by far the best as they treat everyone with the same level respect. Thank you !
Excellent food and service. I can't go to Spain because of covid, but I can go to Fornos and enjoy the the great dishes I hunger from the Reino de Espana.
I made reservations and got the worse seating ever in a room off to the side with a waiter that was getting not just our order wrong but other tables around us. They tried to make things better by bringing us a pitcher of Sangria but that’s not what the wife likes. I was disappointed as I been coming here for years
The menu is sublime with a myriad of choices. The waiters and staff are all very professional and pleasant. They are attentive, but not intrusive. The prices are a bit high, but the food in both quality and amount make Fornos a must dining experience.
Perfect for family dinner or any other occasions with medium or large group
Food was 'good' and portion plentiful but really other than the Pulpo Feria(Octopus with VO oil and paprika) the food really didn't have a truly Spanish flavor case in point: Their Caldo Gallego was really a very poor imitation; very disappointed. I grew up in Gallego household I know how it should taste.
My other issue was their service: the busboys were very attentive but the waiter who attended us was more concerned with a table that had 4 young women and after we place our order with him didn't come by once.
May be it is all due to the present situation
My family and I haven’t been here in a year due to Covid. We went this past weekend for my daughter’s 23rd birthday! I’m happy to report, everything was exceptional!! We were not disappointed!!
Great place for a special occasion or just a night out. After a temperature check we were seated. Service was very good and we were not rushed. Food is excellent with a lot to chose from. Overall a great night out with my wife.
The food and service was amazing!
Excellent food and our waiter Serge was awesome! We will be back soon
We had an amazing lunch. We enjoyed the delicious food and the service was superb. Will definitely come again.
I love this restaurant and have been going here for over 20yrs. The food is exceptional. This was the first time that I had to wait a while to be seated despite having a reservation but I gave a 3 for service because the hostess was rude under the pressure of multiple diners waiting and asking when they can expect to be seated. Everything else was perfect as always.
The food and the sangria are never a problem here. Always delicious and exceeds expectations. Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable and funny. The staff that packed our go-to bag forgot to include the garlic shrimp we didn't finish eating, but I can attribute that to a human mistake. Maybe he forgot to pack it in the bag. Who knows?
The problem comes in when we left. When we arrived, the parking attendant asked us to park in the handicapped parking section. My husband expressed concern about parking in a handicapped space without proper tags. The attendant assured us that our car would be fine. After we ate and got back to the car, two attendants began yelling at my husband and I saying we told them we were only picking up food and that's the only reason they told us to park there. Me nor my husband ever told any of the attendants that we were picking up food or sitting down to eat.
I can understand miscommunications or misunderstandings but I do not appreciate being yelled at and lied on. I love the food here and the waiters and staff inside are the best; they need to work on the customer service training for their parking attendants. Even if there was a legitimate problem, a customer should never be spoken to the way they spoke to us for THEIR mistake.
Food is awesome but the noise can get very loud. I had the best Sole francese in my life.
Can’t beat this place. Food is amazing. Service is top notch.
It was great to see other people out dining through the pandemic to support your franchise. As usual the restaurant was clean, service was great and the food was good. Thank you again my husband and I will definitely be visiting again in the near future.
Our first date 2015
Our engagement was May 2019
Our first date in 2021 as husband and wife
All at Forno’s
Thanks for the experience and memories
It was great!
From start to finish everything was EXCELLENT! Quality has never been better.
Food was dry and tasted like it sat a around for awhile before being brought out to the table.
Socially distanced tables, great food and service, Fornos is one of our favorite restaurants.
Great Service, Tasty drinks, delicious food and appetizers, as the ambiance has a nice touch to it. As for a date night with a Colombian and a Portuguese, it was a delicious and pleasant experience. My favorite meal is Paella Diablo and I this time I tried clams casino which I recommend. Even during this covid time, I’ve been here before in the past but not in a long time. It tasted better than I remember, Can’t wait to come again! #picante
This restaurant really deserves to be somewhere better than Newark, NJ.
You will spend at least 2.5 hours here eating quality and perfectly prepared food.
This will always be my favorite place to eat for special occasions.
Great place would recommend to all my family and friends
Tables too close in spite of NJ requirements. Was reseated upon request but close tables is a issue
Food and service good as usual but won't be back until the pandemic seating issues are resolved
Food was great, as always. Service was not. After waiting 1.5 hrs for appetizers, the staff blamed a limited kitchen staff due to Covid 19 on the delay. Meanwhile, we saw other tables, who came in after us, get their food before us.
Excellent food, amazing service, good variety of food for all taste...
The table was ready upon arrival. The menu was extensive. The main course and sides were excellent. The desserts were not as good as in the past.
Outstanding service and cuisine.
It was very pricey for mediocre food and poor service. Ambiance was wonderful! Outdoor experience was the best part; sadly the food didn’t measure up.
Waiter was a little slow, but everything else was great! Portions are large (paella can be split b/w 2) and the sangria is delicious.
Fornos is far and away the best dining experience in Northern New Jersey. This establishment is a model for anyone in the business of delivering first rate dining, old school is the only school. And in the midst of this horrific pandemic, they have created a superb indoor outdoor dining space to be enjoyed by all.
Pricing seems to be onbthe high side. $21 for an appetizer? Food was average at best.
It has been 20 plus years since I have been there. I have awesome time.
Whether half - empty (sorry) or brimming full (hopefully in the spring) all is terrific. Even the parking lot guy was attentive and cheerful.
Wonderful service from start to finish. And the food was awesome!
Good food only thing I did not like was they need to clean the utensils better.
We eat here often...we tend to be creatures of habit...
Our favorites are Shrimp in Garlic Sauce and the Lobster Tails!
Always cooked to perfection!
We sat in a beautiful, covered, outdoor space. The food and service were excellent. Highlights were the garlic shrimp, ceviche, and the skirt steak. They give a lot of food for the price, so it was nice to have leftovers. Would definitely recommend and go back again.
