Description: In the heart of Little Brazil street is the famous Ipanema Restaurant, considered to be the best Brazilian restaurant in all of New York City. Ipanema offers a relaxed and contemporary atmosphere complemented by the authentic cuisine our chef has perfected over the past 30 years. While the name Ipanema refers to the famous beach in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil our menu is firmly rooted in the culinary crossover between both Brazil and Portugal. Ipanema's menu combines the timeless history of Portuguese recipes with the zest and vibrancy of Brazilian cuisine, resulting in a one-of-a-kind dining experience. At Ipanema you can immerse yourself in a true Brazilian-Portuguese experience with famous dishes including: Feijoada, Vatapá, Pão de Queijo, Bacalhau Assado, Bitoque Mariscada, and more.

Out of all the restaurants I've tried in my two month stay in New York City, this was the best steak I had tried. It was a very unique, spiced taste and it was the first time I've ever tried a fried egg on top of my steak.

Service was great and accommodating. Not unreasonable if you don't have a reservation.

A nice little getaway in Little Brazil. The friendly staff will greet you and even help you try some authentic Brazilian dishes or drinks. The food is ok...not as good as some of the churrascarias I have been to. The appetizers were very authentic and excellent!!
Overall a good little detour off of the 5th Ave corridor.

This restaurant is located in a mini-neighborhood of Brazilian restaurants. There must be at least half a dozen on the block. This one was the most crowded, and judging by our experience, it was crowded with reason. Every dish we tried, from the empanadas to the soup to the fejioada, was delicious, We enjoyed every bite, and our meal was enhanced by attentive and courteous service. We will happily return.

Having read the reviews re this restaurant we headed for it on our 1st night in NY.

Regret it was full and they could not offer us a table within a reasonable period. We visited another Brazilian place close by (see separate review).
We tried again the following evening and were lucky this time.
The service, friendliness, food were outstanding - I can appreciate the reason this place as such good reviews.
The menus at all the Brz, places are similar, it is just a question of which offers the best of everything but not by a mile.

We went to Ipanema for drinks and appetizers since we were too full for a full dinner after our food tour earlier in the day. The appetizers were very good and the cipirahnas were outstanding! They had a black bean stew on the menu that sounded very good, but I just wasn't hungry enough to try it - maybe next time!
