I booked Sounds of Brazil for my 65th Birthday celebration. For an EXTREMELY reasonable cost, they planned an event that was better than I ever expected!! They set up the tables for my 46 guests beautifully with gorgeous colors and flowers on the table. The live music was wonderful and wasn't too loud that it overpowered our guest's conversations.

My wife invited me for the surprised dinner at SOB. This was our first time in this place. I ordered steak and eggs from pre fix menu and it has no flavors. I hope that steaks in Brazil has more flavors. Otherwise, I would skip visiting this country. On a serious note, the appetizers (empanadas with beef and cheese) were... More

The Sounds of Brazil. Bossa nova at it's very best, melodic, rhythmic and so appealing. Best steak and eggs I've ever had, too. The staff is wonderful.

The music is always outstanding. We had a Groupon for dinner and the show. However, we had to make our reservation between 6:30 and 7:30. We had a 7:30 reservation and the place was very quiet, which was OK for dinner. The Groupon menu was very limited. The food was average. The Sangria was weak. Visit SOB for the music... More

I've had more than a few lunches here and have never been disappointed. The Cuban is amazing, the Paella is the best I ever had and the service is always perfect!

A few years back, I had boarded one of the NYC drink and dance cruises that hosted or promoted SOBs. It was one of the best times I had ever had on a dance cruise. Good mix of music, great diversity of people. I had such a good time, I decided that I wanted to find the actual club. There... More

After the venue for Etana had to switch place at the last minute I ended up here. The drink were good and spaced out which gives you room to breath, I enjoyed the artist performance but would like to return and try the food later on.
