It started with the valet parking guys. Polite, helpful and professional. Went downhill, from there (momentarily). The girl that seats you had no clue what she was doing. She initially wanted to put the four of us in the lounge. In spite of the fact there were at least 10 open tables in the dining room. When we asked for the dining room, it took another 10 minutes for her to decide, run to others etc. She doesn't have a handle on her job.
We did end up in the dining room and were greeted by our waitress, a delightful young lady. It was her first night and she did a wonderful job. Three of us had the steak on the stone, outstanding to say the least. Cooked perfectly and coupled with the roasted red potatoes (crazy good), it made for a wonderful meal. My wife very much enjoyed her paella, for one, as well. A good time was had by all.

We enjoyed the Lobster and Scallops Wrapped in Bacon. The clam chowder was delicious. The service was polite and prompt. The restaurant atmosphere was impeccable and well lit.

Maybe you need to be Portuguese to love this place. Was here for a business dinner. We were put down in the basement/wine cellar. Kind of odd entrance to the cellar and it was Very very cold and not sure it's due to the wine storage. The food was only so so and rather salty. The filet mignon was tender and favorable but the vegetables was greasy and salty. The clams in garlic broth were delicious and the highlight of the meal. Gluten free choices very limited.

Delicious seafood stew and steaks. No issues with food, service, or atmosphere. A new favorite and we have been hoping to find great Portuguese food in new Bedford for many years.
