We've been going to Yemanja Brazil since it opened. We always enjoy it--the food is fantastic--we love the fejouda; drinks are delicious; appetizers are fantastic (and they are perfect if you have children with you--just enough for a meal for them); service is great; decor always changes and just makes you think you are far way. The owner is always... More

Why did it take us so long to come back here? We'll return sooner the next time. The national cocktail was excellent with lots of lime and Brazilian rum. There are non-alcoholic tropical beverages for minors. We enjoyed an appetizer with Parmesan and other flavors on bread similar to brochetta. All of the entrees were delicious: pork with pineapple, steak,... More

We sat in the patio and it was perfect. Maybe a little more Brazilian samba or jazz would be nice? Our waiter, Carl, did a wonderful job explaining the dishes from the menu. Nothing was rushed so know when you go, to enjoy your company and the ambience. We started with empanadas and they were gone in about less than... More

We went with family (6 adults, 4 kids, 6, 3, 3 and 7 months). "Jimmy" our waiter was excellent with the kids and service. Food was exceptional. I had beef kebabs which were perfectly cooked. Others had the seafood stew (mussels, octopus and other fish) in a curry broth, the chicken risotto and other things that I can't recall. All... More

Very consistent service and food. We are regulars, so always get our favorite booth. The food is very different with lots of seafood and unusual vegetables, lots of coconut. The rum drinks are amazing.

The food is well worth the price. My husband is a "Foodie" and said this is the best Brazilian food he has had. Our waitress was very patient and even shared the recipe of the alcohol free drink we had with exotic fruits and soda so that we could duplicate it at home. She was very good, friendly and professional.... More

We had a great time recently at Yemanja Brasil. We were a group of 11 and only a few of us had Brazilian food before. The appetizers are enough for 2 to share (not more) - very tasty! I personally enjoyed the National Dish - very different but had great flavor. Not everyone loved their dish but it's understandable as... More

I recently ate here for the first time in many years. The service was excellent. Drink, excellent. Food , excellent. But the thing that stuck with me most is that afterwards I realized I have not felt that well cared for in a restaurant in a very long time. Attentive and pleasant service from start to finish. Very enjoyable. Decor... More

The food was excellent, the atmosphere comfortable, with solid customer service, and clean throughout the restaurant. We had two empanadas for appetizers for the table, and both were excellent. The one with hearts of palm was exquisite. The Brazilian beer was fabulous. For the main course, I had the Espetinhos Gaucho (steak kabobs) was superb. It was by far the... More
