"We went to Maize Restaurant on Sunday, April 24th. When we walked in we knew something was different. There was a party going on in the main part of the restaurant. We were seated in the bottom part of the restaurant. The music was very loud and there were children running all around. We were there with friends to celebrate a retirement. I wish we had been notified the there was a party going on at that time. It was very difficult to talk and enjoy ourselves. We were very disappointed, not with the meal or service but with the atmosphere. We have been there many times before and have always enjoyed ourselves."

"The restaurant is conveniently located across from the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark. We chose from the a la carte menu rather than the prix fixe menu. The food was very good and reasonably priced for the area. The wait staff was attentive and helpful."

"It was recommended that this was a more upscale place to go prior to seeing a show at NYPAC. We didn't realize it was in a hotel, and it is exactly that... a hotel restaurant with packaged butter and hotel food. Enough said."

"Miaze Restaurant is located in the Robert Treat Hotel. There is an entrance from the Military Park Underground Parking Garage, which also serves the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. This makes it very convenient for dinner before a performance at the PAC, particularly if Nico's is booked.
The prix fixe pre-theater dinner is a good value, and the selection is good. The food is dependably good."

"We were going to a show at NJPAC, and thought we'd have dinner there but couldn't get reservations. Maize is just across the street so we decided to give it a try - a great decision. The food was delicious, the portions were large and beautifully presented, and service was excellent even though there wasn't an empty table in the place. We will return."

"The menu on Open Table IS NOT what you will be getting if you visit on a night that there is a theatre show. Completely misleading! We walked in and when we were handed the menu we had almost walked out but decided to stick it out as the food that was coming out looked good. It was a pre-fixed menu at $55 for 3 courses and coffee. We both ordered the "Lump" crab cake, I ordered stuffed salmon and my date Swordfish, Ginger Creme Brûlée and Chocolate Mousse. The "Lump" crab cake didn't contain any crab at all, instead there was a large chunk of IMITATION CRAB MEAT, discussing was an understatement, and it was luke warm at best. We noted this to the waiter and he didn't seemed shocked. Our entrees arrived very quickly after and the "Stuffed" salmon was very dry hardly stuffed, but at least it was actual crab meat. I wanted extra lemon sauce however the waiter never came back after dropping our food. It was quite obvious that these meals are all pre-made and sitting in cafing dishes waiting for orders to come in - nothing was made to order. After complaining to a manager that our drinks were never refilled, service was no existent - nothing was done. Tables around us were complaining as well - very long wait times, no refills, cold food... We were not alone in our experience!"

"This is the 2nd time I've eaten there and had fish so undercooked that I couldn't get my fork through it. It would not flake! Other food was fine. Caesar salad is ok. Service good and ambience excellent. But they do serve fish kind of raw."

"Arrived (with reservation) to find no-one at the front desk. Waited quite a while for the hostess to show up. Then had to ask several times for bread, waited quite a while for our drinks, then our meals. All despite we told them we had tickets to NJ PAC show."

"Maize is around the corner from the PAC so the location is perfect. The place was packed and the employees were not being directed at all. When a restaurant is that busy the service staff needs direction, it was not good. I realize they were busy but this is what you love and is great when you expect it and they have a full house with reservations every event at the PAC!
The food was good, I don't know about the dessert, we left and never had a chance, because we sat there with empty dinner plates in front of us for at least 20 mins.
I will try again and I did talk to management to no avail.

"Picked this spot--a restaurant within the Best Western Robert Treat Hotel--mainly for its proximity to NJPAC but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service. Although service tends toward the unhurried, everyone was polite and efficient, and the waitstaff seemed responsive to the needs of those who had a performance to attend. Very lively atmosphere, both during our Saturday 6:30 dinner (fairly noisy dining room, especially as there was a large party in attendance) and later, when we returned for drinks and dessert (loud, competing music coming from the bar and from an apparent late-night dance floor in the back), but made for a fun night out!"

"Had dinner here before a performance at the NJPAC.
Service was efficient and friendly. Food was very well prepared.
A good place for a pre theater dinner as it is one block from the center.

"Right across from NJPAC, this is an alternative to the restaurants within the performing arts center, and the food and service is better. However, pre-concert they only seem to offer a prix fixe menu and you may not necessarily feel like eating 3 courses at $45.
I do wish they would offer the a la carte menu as well. Perhaps they do, but they do not make it known. The food is good--excellent salmon, duck, asparagus soup.
