Before you go check the menu prices online. I think the establishment is very over rated.

Will never visit Ria Mar again.

Lived in the area for over 25 yrs & didn?t know about Ria Mar. Always go to Spain Inn in Piscatway/Spain 92 in Bridgewater for excellent Spanish/Portugese food. Got a Ria Mar flyer and thought I?d try it. Internet food reviews were great, but couple of postings about wait times, even with reservation. So, we stop 1 weekend without reservation ... long line ... ok we?ll try again ... I understand. Made a reservation for 8:30PM on Valentines Day. Arrive at 8:10. Line is 20 couples deep. I ask when we?ll be seated ... ?Within 15 minutes of reservation? ... OK no problem. Folks on line with reservations have been waiting 1 hr or more from reservation time. At 8:50, I ask host how much longer. Response is ?If I?m talking to you I can?t be seating people? & he walks away. I wait, and ask if it will be more than 5 more minutes because I don?t want to wait and he responds ?Why don?t you just leave?. I?ve never been to a restaurant that so rudely overbooks nor treats guests so rudely.

Good Portuguese Food

After reading the good reviews, we decided to try Ria Mar as we love Portuguese food. My wife called on a Sunday aft for reservations for 4pm. The person who answered said to make it for 5pm, as they were very busy. We got there at 5pm, there were a lot of empty tables??? We started off with red sangria, salad and bread. The bread was a little on the soggy side. Our seafood then came which was very good. We did have to share a small plate of rice, and did not get those fried potatos normally served. The service was excellent. Parking is not good and I was a little shakey about the neighborhood as I would not wanna go there at night.

It's a little bit of a wait, but worth it 100% for the food and service!

Bread and an excellent salad are served complimentary every time I go. The food is flavorful and comes in excellent portions! The only negative is parking. Because the provided lot is always full, I often times have to circle the block in competition for any opening spots on the street.

More than twenty years later, were grateful to all our guests who have made Ria Mar their home.Our menu features great and original recipes by Manuel da Silva who opened this kitchen in 1987. If you enjoy Portuguese Cuisine, youve probably tried one of his recipes. These dishes are the true Portuguese recipes that created the famed Ironbound Portuguese Restaurants. Manuel had been a head chef in Newark since 1969 when he brought his uniqueness and creativity to South River. Today he continues the same recipes and traditions with his children, ensuring that the culture and beloved Portuguese cuisine will continue for many generations to come.A casual atmosphere with the most professional and courteous attention paid to all our guests. We are one of the few restaurants that still prepares every dish from scratch. The food alone is worth the ride. You will find an outgoing and friendly staff that have been with us for many years.
