Since 1981 O Lavrador Restaurant and Bar has dazzled the neighborhood with authentic cuisine from Portugal and Spain. Our extensive menu features unforgettable seafood dishes, fresh fish, and traditional meat specialties to entice every palate. "O Lavrador" is literally "The Farmer" in Portuguese. The farmer of that "garden planted by the sea" (as the poets referred to Portugal), cared for the land and dedicated his free time to fishing. With an Iberian flair, O Lavrador blends the best treasures of the sea and land, in traditional homemade flavors at affordable prices. Delight your palate with one of our top sellers Paelha Marinheira, a savory seafood combination with lobster, clams, mussels shrimp, scallops and calamari in saffron rice. A must have is Chourco Caseiro, our homemade Portuguese sausage flambeed tableside with aguardente (Portuguese grappa). The full service bar is casual and relaxed. Enjoy signature appetizers and drinks, amidst a decor of hanging lanterns, a rustic wood canopy and exposed brick walls. The restaurant is elegant with a magnificent hand painted mural, hardwood floors and marble arches. We offer two party rooms for special events. In true Portuguese and Spanish tradition, at O Lavrador, you are always welcome, the dishes are plentiful, the wines are distinct and the Iberian atmosphere is unique.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 13 years I’ve been going to this place, but I’m never going to visit again. The food and service are great, but my family was made to feel very uncomfortable by the nights entertainment. After ordering appetizers, drinks, entrees for 4 people, with an order to go to boot, the musician for the night came to our table to ask us to turn a video down that we were playing for our one year old. From across the room. A table next to him were playing videos louder than the kiddie video we were playing for our kid. We obliged. He came back and asked us to turn our video off. When we explained that it was for our infant he told us to get her headphones. We asked for the check. We informed our waitress and the manager came over and tried to be as accommodating as they could be, to their credit. But I can never go back to a place that made, even by extension of the hired entertainment, my family so uncomfortable. We tipped our waitress well, took, our food and left. They did offer us free desserts, which we also said yes to, but took them home. Just to restate the facts, our child was silent, we were across the room from the musician, there was a table next to him playing louder videos than us for their own humorous entertainment but he decided to single us out. That’s the last $250 I spend there. 13 years of patronage down the drain.
