Went to Cafe Brazil specifically for the feijoada. Got there at 7pm (they opened at 5pm) and they were out. A Brazilian restaurant out of feijoada 2 hrs after opening !!!! On the positive side, staff were great (friendly and accommodating). Caipirinha were good (ask the bartender to make one from scratch instead of using the premix)

First, the entire menu looks/sounds delicious, so take a few extra minutes to study it because then you'll hear the specials and really be torn about what to order-at least I was. Fortunately, I was dining with someone so we could share plates and taste a few different things-including appetizers. I had a ribeye and let me tell you that... More

Cafe Brazil is a cozy, romantic place with wonderful food, exotic drinks, and excellent service. It's not white-tablecloth fancy, though! The flavors are complex but not heavy, rich but not over-powering. Although many of the dishes are spicy, some can be ordered mild. The Piexe de Angola and the Seafood Copacabana are my all-time faves. Best Feijoada I've ever tasted.... More

I've been coming to this restaurant for years and it never disappoints. The menu never changes and it doesn't need to. How often can you say you got authentic Brazilian food anywhere. Great seafood. Great family run business, charming space. Always a favorite!

We loved our meal. Creative cooking blended with the freshest ingredients. Grouper special was wonderful and a shrimp and scallop over rice with assorted chopped vegis in a coconut based sauce was light and very flavorful at the same time. Many rum based drinks offered in the South American style. We will come back.

If you would like to try some outstanding Brazilian/south American cuisine this is an excellent choice. Seafood was very fresh and seasonings Natalie tasteful but colorful. Delightful menu with excellent choices of wines from south of the border, interesting beers and of course Cachaca. I had La Calena, large prawn and scallops in a sweat and spices tomatoes, onion and... More

The food and service is always exceptional at Cafe Brazil. We shared the Lula Frita (calamari) and I had the seafood Copacabana. I always tell myself I'll go out on a limb and have something different, but I keep coming back for the seafood Copacabana. My only complaint was that we got there slightly before they opened at 5, as... More

Heard about this place via Guy Fieri's D,D&D show and had to try it. It was everything we hoped for. Chilled out atmosphere, super service, commendable Hispanic wine list and great food. The croquettes and hearts of palm appetizers were excellent...one zesty and the latter mild and gentle. The pulled pork main course was also superb, but you gotta like... More

The food is absolutely amazing and the staff even better.The grilled manchengo is a great starter. Both times we came here we had the Cazuela Colombiana dish...AMAZING! The last... More
