No complaints

Authentic Latin American cuisine, good service, reasonably priced, right next to a busy road which can be quite noisy if you are outside...otherwise no complaints

The place is just ok with high prices and small portions. The best part of the meal were the banana chips and salsa they serve in the beginning, but you can only get one free bowl you have to pay for the second which is ridiculous. My boyfriend was not a happy camper when we got our food. The empanadas... More

Few years back when this Brasitas was the only one of their chain, it was great! Amazing service and food. NOW? horrible rude staff and nothing more than mediocre food. Our server took forever to come over, our food took even longer. At one point we started to think he had something against us because everyone else was lighter skin... More

I've been to the one in Norwalk and Stamford, CT and they are both good, authentic restaurants. The Stamford location has an outside bar.

Sat outside on the patio for a delicious dinner! The plantains and salsa were a great way to start the meal. A nice change from chips and salsa. My server steered me to the short ribs, and they were amazing! 2 large, fork tender pieces of beef over a risotto style rice with peas and zucchini in a delicious sauce!... More

Brasitas is simply excellent. Beautiful and delicious food in a vacation like setting. It doesn't get any better.

You could easily drive by this place and never give it a second thought, but in spite of its size and outward appearance, this place is terrific! Very different menu. ..very well prepared. A little pricey, but good. Service can be sketchy, but overall, very worth the trip.

Come for the joy of it. The warm, friendly decor is matched by the smiles of the staff. The menu is a mixture of nouvelle latino cuisine. For starters, the plantain chips and guacamole is a good start as is the black bean soup. I'm fond of the churrasco de cerdo al mojo as a main dish. Sit back, relax... More

Very chic yet not too expensive. Great place for a date. Flank steak and seafood stew were awesome. Cerviche a little fishy but still good. Highly recommend!

Located about a half-mile off Exit 9 on I-95, this small Brazilian fusion restaurant offers truly outstanding food. While it often sounds simple, the combination of flavors is amazing. The only drawback is it's very small and always crowded. Parking too can be a problem. But once you taste the food, you'll understand why it's so hard to get into.... More
