We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Brazil by the Bay. My Brazilian wife enjoyed the authentic food. And I enjoyed the Caipirinha - Brazil's national cocktail.

Small casual restaurant with a big care for service and quality of food. We started with coxinha, risoles and pao de queijo as a petizers. Then my wife oredered the shrimp strogonoff and I had the famous feijoado. Everything was saboroso. The brazilian lager beer...More

Nice place. Authentic brazillian food. It's not a steakhouse but your "family restaurant" in Brazil. Lots of yummy things like "prato feito " with beans, rice, brazillian cheap steak ( made with prime cut though) and farofa. Also a great flan (pudim de leite). Next...More

Great food and friendly service. Good variety and a nice Brazilian grocery next door. Frozen Acai berries are great.

Parked for the concert and noticed this place across the street. We were hungry and didn't want to walk all the way around to chilis. It's a small hole in the wall. Lots of other concert goers were there. The food was very good. Tri-tip...More

I ordered a typical Brazilian plate with rice, beans, picanha (steak), and farofa, even knowing the price was expensive. On the other hand, I was expecting more for the price, well the steak (picanha) was very good, but the rice and beans didn't taste fresh.

This place is a hole-in-the-wall with excellent food, but service was not great. To be fair, the waitress was alone and we were the second large group to come in. Attached is a Brazillian Market. I would definitely eat here again.

If you're in the mood for some reasonably priced, awesome Brazilian food, this is your place. Small Brazilian grocery attached to it. The lunch specials are fantastic. They didn't even make fun of my terrible Portuguese and were happy to chat a bit.

The entrees were ok. I lived in Brazil and the steak was not up to my expectations. The pasteis were worth the trip however. They were the best I've ever has in the U.S.

We stopped by yesterday for the feijoada special. This is truly Brasil. The staff is Brazilian and they have authentic dishes. We had feijoada with rice, kale, and farofa. We also had coxinha and kibe for starters. Everything tasted delicious and was reasonably priced. The...More
