loved the mix of textures and flavors. Had the salmon with plantains and salsa and beans. Yummy. In the area for a convention, so had lunch here.

We stopped in from the rain and decided to stay. Great happy hour prices, excellent service and food. I would highly recommend this restaurant/ bar.

dinner with colleagues and i was impressed that the hostess was simpathetic when we were held up in traffic and still gave us a great table in the window. had margaritas and guacamole to start and duck flautas (excellent). Then the perfectly seasoned Moqueca. Having eaten this particular ar dish a half-dozen times on a visit to Salvador, Bahia last year i give the Ceiba version two thumbs up! just one small complaint is that the lobster tail suffered a bit from a long stay in the piping hot stew and the result was meat that was overcooked and chewy - but the other fishes fared just fine. Finished with the churros with hot chocolate dip - very nice. Waitress was charming though things slowed down quite a bit after our drinks and guacamole arrived... the pace from the kitchen became almost ponderous and a colleague's wife was left waiting for a side dish until well after we had been served our main courses....

If you are a fan of South American and/or Latin cooking, this place will delight.

Brazil, Peru, and Cuba are among the countries represented on the menu.

There were 4 of us for dinner, out of towners, and 3 of the 4 were very happy with our meals. The Brazilian Feijoada, my choice, was hearty, tender and delicious. It was better than any Feijoada I ever had in Brazil where I lived for a year. The one unhappy with his choice ordered the Brazilian Seafood stew which he described as too bland.

It was a fairly busy night in the restaurant, but we found the service good.

With that many people dining, however, and no table cloths or window coverings, the room was very noisy, not the best way to digest a meal. In addition, the prices were a bit steep for what was being offered in a non-white table cloth environment.

We might return when in DC again and would try an off night rather than a week-end to see if there is a difference in the noise leve..

Our family of 4 (kids in 20's) were seated promptly after our reservation time, and enjoyed a wonderful meal at a nice pace. A dining experience! Food was excellent, top notch! The Brazilian seafood stew, the beef tenderloin special, and other entrees all were delicious, as were the starters, which included the ceviche sampler and special Argentine cheese and beer soup. Drinks were good and even the desserts were yummy. Waitress was properly attentive and very nice, though she did have a problem (twice) with coordinating drinks from the bar with food delivery times. Valet parking is a convenience. A bit expensive, but perhaps that's to be expected in DC these days.
