went here last nite after reading all the wonderful reviews. very disappointing food. party of 5, 2 liked it, on went ehhh and 3 said it was the worst meal we have had in years. the feijoada was fatty and grizzly. the red snapper was tough and so salty it was awful. the short bib which was advertised as fork tender falling off tthe bone and lean, was also grizzly and fatty and couldn't be cut with a knife. the two people who liked the meal got the special steak of the day. the service was fine, we did enjoy a nice crisp albarino from spain. pretty poor food though.

I tried Berimbau through the restaurant discount service VillageVines and felt guily for how good of a deal i got. Well worth the full-price, Berimbau is an excellent value and GREAT meal when 30% off. Check it out if looking for an authentic meal with great service and excellent decor-- at a discount to boot!

This was my first experience at a Brazilian restaurant, and it was amazing! The atmosphere is warm and inviting (a great place for a date) and the staff was very attentive and friendly. I ordered the duck with mashed potatoes and it had terrific bold flavors. My friend had the Strogonoff de Frango which was also a good choice. I left feeling full, satisfied, and slightly tipsy due to the caipirinhas I ordered (watch out- these drinks are tasty and strong!) Overall, a wonderful experience. I will be back soon!

Today i had the pleasure of eating at this delightful eatery. I started my food trip with a tasteful potatoe soup. I must say it was the best soup i have had in a long time. As an entree i had the duck with mash potatoes. The duck was covered with a tasty dark sauce a little salty but still delightful. The place is small it has at most ten tables inside. The decor was nice. The service was great. I guess it would be if your being served by the owner. Speaking of the owner. He was very attentive and personable guy. I highly recommend this place.

This place is a delight! From the moment you walk in the door to the moment you leave you really believe all the staff would rather do nothing else than try to please you. The food was so flavorful and served with such care that you'd do yourself a disservice if you never went. Make sure you celebrate a birthday here..It will linger on...

The food served at Berimbau is not like the fake/for tourist food you get at Little Brazil (46th st). We are talking about creative dishes and excellency in terms of service.

Absolutely great quality Brazilian food. Everything about this restaurant is enjoyable from the fine food to the background music. One of my favorite now places to dine downtown and with the trip if you don't live in the area. The Deserts are fabulous!
