“Surprisingly Good”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

It sure looks a little dumpy from the outside but is festive on the inside. The real surprise is the quality of the food along with its presentation. When dinner arrives it looks like it came from a 4 star restaurant. The attention to detail and the look of each plate as it comes out of the kitchen is very special. The plantain and salsa that are placed on the table when you first sit is excellent but be careful you don't eat it all as there will not be room for desert.
Although I waiver from time to time, Brasitas is arguably the best restaurant in Stamford when combining the quality of food, ambiance, service and price. Try it!

“Grass-fed beef, great atmosphere and service”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

Restaurant recommended by hotel as I was craving a steak. Almost drove right past it as the neighborhood isn't the best. Took a chance and so happy we did. To my surprise grass-fed beef. Awesome steak, lots of flavor, potatoes and asparagus. Plantain chips with a homemade salsa. Very pleased. Didnt mind that the bill came to about $100 for 2. Not including any alcohol. Definitely recommend and don't let the shady part of town it's in fool you!

“Superb Latin food and ambiance”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

The music set the mood last Friday night for our girls night out. The drinks were superb. The food, seafood dishes, were spot on. I can't wait to try the place w my husband. I will def go back. Parking is tough but fortunately there is valet. Worth it though.

“Consistently great meal”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Very unique food and wonderful staff. Good if you are there just for drinks and appetizers or a full meal. Parking can be a hassle, but just use the valet. Not a big space, but we've had up to 6 - 8 people for dinner and it's still been great. More perfect, though, for smaller numbers, 2 or three friends or couples' dining.....
