We stopped by on a Saturday in December and the restaurant was busy. The host informed us that we will have to wait two hours for a seat even though we saw an empty table for two in the back corner. Since we had not visited the city in some time we opted to eat at the bar, however I... More

Was in a Business Trip to NY in Apr/2014 and my customer wanted to have a dinner with me on this restaurant. Went there with a couple of colleagues too. Restaurant was not pack and we did not need to wait so long to seat. They have a bot of everything from Brazil, from "Picanha" to "Feijoada". They also have... More

First, I would like to commend the wait staff at this restaurant. They were courteous and very fun in general. We were originally supposed to have a 40 minute wait, but after a cancellation, we were seated within 15 minutes. Our waiter was amazing, even giving my mom a little bit of the chili sauce to take home with her... More

The staff at our hotel recommended a Brazilian restaurant on 46th street. We found Ipanema right next door, and decided to eat here instead. The place is small, and it was busy when we got there. However, the host was able to find us a table very quickly. This was our first time eating Portugeuse food. It was exceptional! My... More

We had dinner here after the theatre. The food was awesome, very fresh, generous portions. We had our two children with us and they were very accommodating. However, the service was painfully slow. We missed our train and that was disappointing.

I have just got in from eating at Ipanema and on the journey back to the hotel I tried to think of anything I would do to make the restaurant better.. Absolutely nothing!!! The food was delicious, service brilliant and great value for money... I would recommend the shrimp in coconut!!

Ate here prior to seeing a show. Definitely was not disappointed! I had the fish with vegetables and my husband had a meat dish. Food was wonderful and the service was fantastic! The waiter was very helpful in explaining some of the menu items. Would definitely return!

We were strolling 5th ave in NYC and found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. This is a lovely little Portuguese restaurant in the heart of midtown. A few things to note though..we arrived just after opening and the kitchen was already out of the $20 bacalao lunch special, which I thought rather odd. I ordered the whole boned grilled trout...

Be aware: the size of the portions is huge so it is easy to overorder.The locals coudld have doggy-bags but visitors could only regret the food they... More

Had dinner here with a group of 8, and while the service can be a little ragged at times, the entrees were quite good, especially the well priced steaks. Others had fejoada and seafood stew and enjoyed them. The grilled salmon was especially well done. Decent sangria and well priced wine list.
