I've been wanting to visit Yemanja for a long time and finally got the opportunity today. My friend and I arrived around 4:20, but they don't open until 5pm. We saw a woman through the window and asked if we could come inside to wait, since my friend uses a walker. The waitress very kindly came out and let us... More

Hard working owners, they have shown a loyalty hard to find in ethnically / specialty restaurants like this. The ambiance reflects the Brazilian culture and it is a very pleasant restaurant.

I started going here when I purchased a Groupon several years ago. I have been back many times since. The food is always amazing. Their specialty drinks are also delicious made from Brazilian rum. Very quaint area. Service is also very good.

Restaurant was selected as 1 of brother-in-law's favorites for a surprise party. Set up worked well as we were placed in the upstairs alcove out of view from front door. Bar serves most standard fate with the addition of Brazilian favorites including caiparinha, very sweet sugar cane drink, and Guarana, similar to ginger ale as an added soft drink. A... More

We stumbled upon this place when our Plan A fell through, and I am so glad we did! We walked right in and were seated on a Saturday night around 7. Our server was so friendly, and she had on-point suggestions for us as far as food and drinks went. I had sangria, and it wasn't too sweet, which I... More

I went with a Brazilian friend and his family. I was also with my family. Since our arrival, the owner, a beautiful Brazilian lady, was taking care of us. Even when our kids got crazy, she brought some toys for them! The waiter was really kind at even the people in the restaurant (probably a little bit crazy about the... More

After much research, I chose this restaurant for a healthy but different birthday meal, and we were not disappointed. I made a reservation for 8 several days before and when we arrived, we were seated right away, in a quiet, bright, and pleasantly decorated dining area. We enjoyed the Brazilian Cadillac Caipirinha cocktails and empanadas, then ordered several different excellent... More

Our party of four was able to have traditional Brazilian food that ranged from pork to chicken to beans to mushrooms and we all loved what we had. We began with the national drink, which was like a margarita, only better.

We were a group of 12 friends on a Saturday night in April, and someone suggested Yemanja Brasil because of its central location and menu that would cover all of the different tastes and food restrictions of our group. From the moment we pulled up to this charming establishment, we were in for a fun evening. The exterior was inviting... More
