Eh, not Bad

HHHMMM, I was going to give this a 4 rating, but then I got the bill with the 20% tip added in with no option to change. Mind you we were a party of 4. Service was marginal at best and VERY SLOW. Food was below average, but I guess ok. Not a place that I would seek out again,... read more

Very expensive and they couldn't vary the menu according to likes and dislikes. The steak was awful and was tough. We did not return

Average food. Not really a Brazilian cousine. It looked like some American got the Brazilian recipe on Internet. If you are in Manhattan and want to eat in a affordable Brazilian restaurant, go to the Emporium Brazil. If you want churrasco, go to the Texas de Brazil.

I've been to this restaurant on two different occasions. The first time I had the all you can eat, which was more food than I can possible eat. $36 per person. They bring skewers of different types of meat and you grab them off. Some of the meats were fantastic, some not to my liking. I liked the sirloin and... More

I go to the Brazil Grill every time I go to New York City - love their caipirinha - ($6) and yummy yucca fries - great ambiance - I was there mid afternoon July 25/15 before catching a flight home - cool and shady, friendly bar staff - have been for dinner (veg pasta) before going to the theatre too.

Delicious food and great service. Had the best Caipirinha I've had anywhere. They certainly didn't stint on the rum!

I have just spent a wonderful brief vacation in New York City. In the Playbill we found a recommendation for Brazil Grill. We can only agree with the review. This restaurant has a very extensive and interesting menu. From Meat to Seafood the choices are numerous and difficult to make. We had the chicken liver as a started. The portion... More

We went here with a group of 10 to celebrate a family member birthday. Very disappointing!! The food was uninspiring, mediocre at best and quite expensive. The noise level made conversation all but impossible, The wait staff was indifferent, unhelpful and slow. There are so many better and lovelier places in the neighborhood!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
