Ordered several traditional Brazilian dishes and was quite dissapointed. Beans and olives were straight from a can and the meat was very average. My wife who is Brazilian was veth disappointed. They even managed to screw up the caipirinha. The staff was very kind and helpful which was the only real positive.

Very nice food and not so expensive. Service is great. We had some steaks which were done as we asked and were very good. Side dishes also home made and fresh. The interior look is not something to brag about and the paper maps on the table does not add to the feeling - but the kids wont notice any... More

Food a little under the average, service too. Be aware of the bill they automatically charge you a (20% obliged) tip. Last but not least they brought us a 6$ 500ml water filled up with the same water of the carafe. Just BE AWARE

From the moment we walked the service and atmosphere of this place brought a smile to two sickly English people in New York, from the warm welcome to the live music it all added to our trying to be romantic evening :-) Food was lovely and plentiful, wine was reasonably priced with a good selection (in my opinion).

We sat at the bar and had cocktails and appetizers. The best was the beef, chicken and sausage skewers in a thick grilled pineapple slice. The bartender was friendly, too. We will be back and try dinner the next time.

Romantic dinner for two before a show. Reserved and received a quiet corner table. Began with a nice glass of Cab. Appetizer of Calamari was more than ample size for two with spicy dipping sauce. Dinner was seafood paella for two. Again more than ample (could not finish it) with side of HOT Brazilian sauce. Finished the evening with Caramel... More

The meat was all bones and fat, pretty bad food... the sauce and the rice were the only good thing 😊 BAD experience, not worth the money!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
