Welcominng staff,good food and desert and great live music!!! – I WOULD RECOMMAND TO A FRIEND!!! First time I went to Emporio Brazilian Cafe , I was kind of unsure about the place 'cause I never really heard of it until i looked up on line. But when i first went there I was welcomed by the hostess who was a BEAUTIFUL young lady with the best smile and a really cute outfit on,and that was a really good impression and than I sat down and ate and I love the food specially the churrasco which is brazilian bbq. The deserts was divine,the milk tart and the papaya cream are delicious.And the waiters were so nice and and happy and they were always talking and laughing with each other, they looked like they all belong to the same family and they were running a family bussiness. And not mentioning the live music that they have there every friday and saturday night with this handsome french/brazilian singer. Anyway the restaurant is a very fun and warming place you really feel like you out of the country without living the U.S is amazing...totally recommanded to a bestfriend.
Recommend the Tri-Tip – For the Holidays the project team I work on decided to conduct a Multi-Cultural Day where everyone brought a dish of their native country. One of the team members, a native Brazilian who moved here two years ago, brought Picanha na Chapa from Emporio Brazilian Cafe. The meat was excellent! I'm not a avid beef eater but the meat was very flavorful, tender, and juicy. The portions were huge (12oz sirloin). I admit there was some grisle on it but I'm sure it helped contribute to the taste. I just cut mine off.
I liked the meat so much I photocopied the menu my co-worker brought with her and plan on ordering this for my next dinner party. All I need to top this meat off is a nice bottle of red wine! I recommend this dish from Emporio, listed on the menu at $13.99 for 12oz grilled sirloin, rice, & farofa.
Since I haven't experienced the service or atmosphere I'm giving this a 4 star but if the service is as good as the food it would be a clear 5 star winner!
service, food and expresso coffee – I do not recomend this place, because the first time that I went with my fiance. I think the service it is too bad, and the waiter was inpatient. The bread cheese were hard, they probably were cooked two days ago. The dishes which should be served hot were cold. Then, I didn't expect they would serve the cold expresso coffee in iron cup. It was so ridiculous.I do recommend this restaurant to anyone
Truly Brazilian, Great service. – We go to Emporio from time to time because is a bit far from us but we live the food there! They are ALWAYS consistant with great taste and good service. If you are adventoruos and want to try some some delicous South American dishes at a modest restaurant with fair prices. . .this is your place. Love the lttle grocery stand/shop at the entrance. Don't leave without getting some truly Brazilian sweets! Highly recommended.
