We went to Cavalerio's on a recommendation. Although we live locally, we had never been. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the service was excellent. We ordered the sampler appetizer and a pitcher of sangria, both delicious. For dinner we ordered the Portuguese Steak served with an egg on top and house gravy and a side of Portuguese fries,...

Steak on the Stone was again excellent. Three other meals in our party was not as good. Food came out cold.

We went here for a couples dinner and I have so say it was a mixed bag as far as reviews go. Three people ordered the 'Steak on a Stone" and loved it. I had a bite and thought it was delicious - just the fact that you get a hot stone with a raw piece of tenderloin and get... More

The food was well-prepared and tasty. The garlic shrimp was especially good. The restaurant has a nice collection of Portuguese wines. This is a great way to get introduced to wines with which you may not be familiar. I wish there had been a greater variety of seafood. I was looking forward to octopus and found none on the menu.

I found a gift card in my desk at home that someone gave to me a while ago fo Cavaleiro's. Previous experiences were not great but, there are new owners, an upgraded wine list and very good service. Think of this as "home cooked" Portuguese. Not fancy, nothing to blow your socks off but, if you are looming for solid... More

I really wanted to love this place! The service was very friendly and helpful. The interior was nice and clean and bright. The food was a disappointment! Steak on a stone was very good and the best thing on the menu but very expensive. The Portuguese Steak has potential but the meat was grisly and tough. The Pork and clams... More

We were a party of 20+ people for a birthday dinner party. that service was very slow and several mistakes. most of our wine glasses had white powder like stuff in them. beer was sour and cloudy. food was not so impressive either. this restaurant used to be good from what i heard, but that is a history now.

It is a little isolated, I live in Lowell and had a hard time finding it. But it was definitely worth it! Must haves are the Fillet on a Brick. The fillet was every bit as good as Capital Grill or the Palm. You get to cook it to your liking on the hot stone they serve it on. Served... More
