Best mojiyo! Period – Best mojito in town (I think they have 7 flavors).
And good food too! Will be back soon.
Great cozy place, great music
Partied late! – Great spot! Went to enjoy some tapas and some live Brazilian music. It was very much fun, great food and fair prices.
Highly recommend it.
Great organic menu – I love it. It feels very cozy and festive. i loved their menu of latin american fare. Everything was organic and very tasty. I believe they change the menu every month. its good to see restaurants going healthy and getting their products from local markets unlike almost everfy opther resto.
And with unlimited choice of flavored mojitos, you cant go wrong. loved it!!
Worst place ever! – I was very disappointed. I search for a "Brazilian" place on city search and found this one. Found their menu on-line also and it really sounded good. Made a reservation for 11 people for 8pm. The place was EMPTY!! The whole place consists of about 10 tables and they packed us in 1 long table when we had the whole place to ourselves except for another couple who was making out across from us! The menu was completely different that what was online. The waiter was rude and was not helpful. They charged $28 for a bottles of sangria that served 3 of us-about 2 small glass each. The food was not brazilian, except for the picanhia which was soooo small. It was very disappointing, I would not recommend this place for a group of people. Only 2 people spoke Portuguese, the bar tender and cook and the bartender was rude.
Great atmosphere and food – I went to try their new seasonal menu and it was great. Try the gazpacho and their steak...yummy. Plus they use all organic ingredients from local markets. Healthy and delicious!
Highly recommend it.
Excellent sangria and food! – I went here because they had free sangria with dinner this one night. The place exceeded my expectations. It is very quaint, well decorated and the service is extra friendly. My friends and I tried the mango sangria which was amazing (they have about 4 different flavors)! The food is just incredible - I had the short ribs and my friends ordered a bunch of appetizers. Prices were reasonable especially since the sangria came with the dinner (I don't know how often they have this deal). Anyhow I will certainly be going back!
Little plates of exotic Brazilian and European tastes. – In Short
Stained-glass windows catch eyes from the street while the raucous Latin rhythms foster a moving mood inside the fun, rustic room. The Brazilian and Italian flavors feature South American favorites, like fried bacalao and chicken croquettes, along with innovative European creations, like chocolate tagliatelle with duck ragu. Small-plate servings keep the stomach nimble for samba dancing into the night.
Well... I like it – First off all, sorry for my english mystakes...
I am brazilian, and I am really tired of the stereotipes of my country here in USA, but that place is cool. I have been there in 2 ocasions: first time was with the "My open bar" day, where I had good drinks and great time with very nice people. I don't know if the open bar is still on, but if it is... I will be back.
The bartender told me about the live music on weekends, and I was there to check. A little loud if you want to go there to talk... That is a place where you go to see and be seing... Very beautifull croud. I stayed at the bar, and the sensation of people dancing around me, very happy, that is cool. I ordered some food, and I understand that took a little more than I was expecting... And so what??? I had so much fun that my night was over only close to 2 am. This is very late for a restaurant. I liked the mojito, and the manager offered a round off some shot for the people at the bar... I had also a caipirinha to remember the hot days at the beach in Brazil, not bad... I think the glass is huge (not complaining... hehhe)
What I liked more was that I could feel that the staff were there helping me and having fun togheter... cherring, and dancing. They clap, they yell, they dance... I am tired of the NY "cool" places, with posers and "trendy cool arrogant' people. This place it is cozy, fun and memorable. I had everithing that I paid for (and some extra shots), a lot of fun and great time.
COZY, COLORFUL, GREAT FOOD – This could become my favorite after work place. Love the $10 mojito pitchers and their meat skewars.
Its very cozy, lively place, packed with genuine Brazilians.
Try their famous cheese bread too!
great experience! – I had a lot of fun. Very enjoyable samba and bossa nova music and excellent food. I was sitting at the bar with my friends and the bartender (a very nice Brasilian guy) fixed usgreat caipirinhas. Very lively athmosphere!
I highly recommend the coconut stew and the short ribs with coconut rice.
I just came back from carnival in Rio de Janeiro and felt I needed something to make me feel as if I were still there: Samba-le' is the place!
