If I keep returning to a place that maintains it's standards over time, I think a new review pointing that out, is sometimes in order. Much of what I said previously still goes, except the service had picked up a notch...a good thing. This time I tried the Pork Chop special and my wife went for pork as well. Fine... More

This was our third visit and once again the service was excellent. My wife had the salmon, my son had beef short rib and I had my usual at Brasitas, Churrasco Gaucho steak. The food was good, but unfortunately my $30 steak was not as good as before. Maybe I just got a bad cut. This would not stop me... More

The duck appetizer is fabulous here. The smoked duck salad is so tasty. Everyone of us, 6 of us enjoyed our meal. Definitely recommended. The music was a bit loud so not the best if you are trying to have conversations. Great service too.

Another great dinner at Brasitas led me wife and i to ask ourselves why we don't return more often: We have never had a disappointing meal here. We feasted on a huge ceviche appetizer and followed it with a filet of lubina (striped bass) and a paella so filled with shrimp, scallops and chunks of fish that it was enough... More

The food was gorgeous! The salsa was so tasty, I ate 3 bowls before my main arrived 😊It was my 1st time trying red snapper - it was absolutely amazing! Beautifully cooked and presented, with a wonderful salad. 100% would recommend! PS: floor is not good for high heels 😂

There is nothing we have had here that wasn't delicious. The plantain chips are yummy with the salsa, love the empanada appetizers too. I hosted a party here and the service was fantastic and everyone loved the food.

I got stuck in Norwalk due to a snowstorm. This place was right next door to the hotel. I thought they had great menu items. The "chips" and salsa were great. I ordered an appetizer which was really good but I did find grissel (sp?) or a piece of bone in it. However they did not charge me for my... More

Have been a fan of the original spot (still going strong in Stamford), was in Norwalk and gave this a try. As expected, it was very good. Salsa and fried plantains set up the rest of a great meal. Get the ceviche when you go, and you should go.

I ordered the Curry chicken and it was amazing. Even though I was full, I had to keep eating ...it was that good!
