Came for brunch after being turned away at a nearby spot bc we had our dog. The waiter sat us near the edge of the enclosed sidewalk area so the dog was sitting just outside - very considerate. He also brought the pup water + excellent service start to finish. We had caprihanas and though small in size they packed a big punch and were delicious. We each got fritadas - the cod and the sausage - but neither of us enjoyed them. Overly salty and inedible, we ate about half even though we were hungry. Got the bill and they had added gratuity - totaled $88 YIKES! For 4 drinks and 2 egg dishes, it wasn't worth it. The live music was great, but the boisterous crowd and smoking in the dining area didn't make it the best atmosphere to enjoy a meal in. Would happily return for a drink, but never again for food.

being from Brazil and living in the area for almost 8 years ... i was at Miss Favela with some friends 3 times . Food is just ok . Not even the feijoada is good . It's a brazilian restaurant for people who doesn't know brazilian food and think that just because they play some samba its the real deal .

went here with my girlfriend with high expectations, but left disappointed and feeling sick to our stomachs. the food was off, extremely overpriced, and had very poor presentation. we ordered the tenderloin shank and the fried fish. the waitor could not answer any of our questions and the service was also painfully slow.

My wife and I ate here last night. Cool location, fantastic atmosphere, great food and pleasant staff. The kind of place you'd go back to time-and-time again. We'll never go back. Their prices are beyond that little NYC expensive. Entrees are moderate to expensive. Same with appetizers. Where they kill you is drinks and dessert. $4 fricking dollars for a soda. I mean come on. We had two each and spent $16 on soda. Their alcoholic drinks, while delicious, are small and start at $10. This place has the look and feel of a mom-and-pop restaurant, making traditional food yet, they rape you with their prices. We've been to every Brasilian restaurant in the city and have yet to pay more than $2 for a soda. Until management comes back to Earth with their insane pricing, we won't be going back.

My boyfriend (who is from Rio) and I eat here often, the food is great and the atmosphere is awesome, it's done up to look like a favela inside. I don't know why menupages put it in such a high price range, because the food is definitely affordable. Try the feijoada, make sure you have the couve (collard greens), and the farofa!

I had the brazilian traditional dish named Feijoada and it was delicious. However, the portion is not that big. During the weekends they have live music and it is great! Must try it!
