I have been to this place about four times in the last 2 years and have found the food to be consistently great. I have never been disappointed! The capirinhas are perfect; the mixed meat grill is enough meat for two persons. Then you can spend more money on great side dishes like mandioca frita, palmito salads, and rice and beans. The waiters are very friendly...never any attitude. The place can get a little noisy -- especially after everyone has had a few caipirinhas -- but that is part of the fun. Great place to take out of town guests when you don't want to take chances on getting a bad meal.

On the way to rockefeller center we stopped off for dinner. My wife is Brazilian and she agreed with me that the food was great. She had bacalau and I had the beefsteak with fries and lots of sauteed onions. Came along with black beans and rice for us to share. Everything was good, The waiters and other help very attentive. Had a very pleasant dinner. Everyone at the front of the restaurant thanked us for coming. We will be back, this time on wed through sat, when the band is playing. Muito obrigado e parabens.

A really nice restaurent (clean, inviting and elegant). the service was top notch and the food was great. The portions were perfect for lunch. I had the shell steak with fried onions which was cooked to perfection and my girl had the egg battered shrimp with veggies which were excellent. I had a hard time convincing her to let me have some of the carrots! Definitely try the sangria, very good! Can't wait to go back.

This lovely restaurant is far and away the best Brazilian one on the Little Brazil strip. The long room is elegant and inviting. Food is authentic, flavorful and served in generous, not overwhelming portions. Service was friendly and efficient. A wonderful find!

A group of us went to Via Brazil on December 26 and had the absolute best time. The service was impeccable and the food outstanding. Their caiparinhuas are very yummy but strong, watch out! I ordered the churassco special ... lots of meat! their appetizers are scrumptious... They also had live jazz music... I highly recommend this place.

Cocktails were fabulous, the service was superb, and the food was succulent and plentiful, absolutely scrumptious!!! As for the atmosphere, the live music added a fantastic ambience to the place. For those who care, they also provide coat service and excellent mints when you dining experince has ended. Great place to develop a palate for Brazilian cuisine!! Coma, beba e divirta-se!!!
