“Excellent food & service, new decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

The food was very rich and delicious, and I'll definitely be back at some point due to the decent prices and good-sized portions.

I really think this place has come under new management, as the place has apparently been recently renovated. No tennis balls on chairs; the place was very clean with what looked like fresh paint and new decor; the guy who appeared to be the manager was very, very concerned about whether my girlfriend and I were enjoying our food as we were eating a bit slowly. This was because this was my first time trying many dishes, and I was savoring them!

I only have one gripe: There was a funky nursing-home smell when we came in. I'm not sure what it was, but either I got used to it or it was only in the entryway. I might have left if not for the Groupon I had bought. Fortunately, everything else about the place was good, so I see no reason to take off a point for something that they can (hopefully) easily fix, perhaps with a carpet steaming.

“Underappreciated Portuguese cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

I have found the food here consistently fine and a great value compared to other Portuguese restaurants in the area. Service is a little slow and the dining room could use updating.

“Very disappointing!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2011

Food - ok; service - awful. There were 2 large groups that evening. Waitstaff did the best they could but were overwhelmed. Manager kept disappearing leaving the staff to fend for themselves and to bear the brunt of the customers' complaints. The place was also very dirty and in dire need of updating. Woudn't eat there again.
