“Nice restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Nice Brazilian restaurant. Not all options are truly Brazilian (the rice, for example, is certainly not). But the Brazilian cheese bread is authentic, as it is the little dishes like coxinha.
The staff was very friendly, also. Overall, nice experience.

“Good Food, Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Five of us had an early dinner in August. We had appetizers, drinks, main course and shared a dessert. Service was a little slow but not obnoxiously so. We enjoyed all the food we were served. It was fresh, well-prepared and nicely plated. We had the Raindrop donuts for dessert and highly recommend them. The donuts were still warm and came with 3 sauces for dipping. Divine! There were 5 donuts so we each enjoyed one. We liked the restaurant and would go back. Overall, it is a very good value.

“Tasty food, comfortable, great staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

We dropped in for tapas and really enjoyed the casual atmosphere and tasty food.
The menu looked interesting - we meant to go back for a meal but didn't make it - on the list for next time!

“Great place to visit and enjoy the ambiance with friends - not a full dinner though”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I stoppe by here after dinner to enjoy a lounge type atmosphere with a litte activity. We enjoyed each of the rooms and the live music Saturday night - great dj as well. The spot was small but fun and the food was ok but just as appetizers. I would not recommend eating a full meal here as the quality and value would disappoint.

“Not what I had hoped for...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

We seeked this place out after reading the reviews on it. It isn't a obvious building, so we passed it a couple times. We order a bunch of tapas, and two entrees. Overall the food seemed to be just average, there was really nothing that I would rave about except for the aioli that came with one of the sides. The meal was not expensive overall, but for the amount and quality of the food, was a bit high. The service was fine, forgot one of out orders, and I believe that my credit card number might have been nabbed here. Not positive, but still beware.
