We have been here several times,but haven't been there in a while. The atmosphere is so beautiful with lights and Brazilian decorations. You can spend a long time just looking around. The staff is all very friendly, so nice and efficient and the food is so full of flavor. Just a real treat. My husband and I had the fejouda... More

We stumbled upon this place when our Plan A fell through, and I am so glad we did! We walked right in and were seated on a Saturday night around 7. Our server was so friendly, and she had on-point suggestions for us as far as food and drinks went. I had sangria, and it wasn't too sweet, which I... More

I went with a Brazilian friend and his family. I was also with my family. Since our arrival, the owner, a beautiful Brazilian lady, was taking care of us. Even when our kids got crazy, she brought some toys for them! The waiter was really kind at even the people in the restaurant (probably a little bit crazy about the... More

After much research, I chose this restaurant for a healthy but different birthday meal, and we were not disappointed. I made a reservation for 8 several days before and when we arrived, we were seated right away, in a quiet, bright, and pleasantly decorated dining area. We enjoyed the Brazilian Cadillac Caipirinha cocktails and empanadas, then ordered several different excellent... More

Our party of four was able to have traditional Brazilian food that ranged from pork to chicken to beans to mushrooms and we all loved what we had. We began with the national drink, which was like a margarita, only better.

We were a group of 12 friends on a Saturday night in April, and someone suggested Yemanja Brasil because of its central location and menu that would cover all of the different tastes and food restrictions of our group. From the moment we pulled up to this charming establishment, we were in for a fun evening. The exterior was inviting... More

Stopped in the other night and found the place quite charming. Cozy, intimate setting, good food in the heart of Benton Park. Will be back.

We were looking for something different and found something fantastic. The food was delicious and the staff very attentive. It's hidden away in a beautiful old neighborhood. Well worth the trip.

What a cozy restaurant! The perfect place to have a pleasant evening: charming, warm, and the attention was cordial and promptly. The food was also a delight. I am not familiar with Brazilian gastronomy, so I asked for the origin of some of the dishes listed on the menu, and a kind lady that seemed to be the owner was... More
