It's a gem in the mist of the 2nd ave construction. The service is great and between the food and the drinks it is a toss up for me. Definitely go for the Caipi Zebu for the drink and the salmon with acai for entree. You cannot leave before the dessert! You won't regret it, trust me! By the way, get in early for the summer prixe fix.

The food was okay- wasn't all that thrilled. The service was great, the prices were good and it was a nice spot for an intimate gathering.

Husband and I went for dinner on weekend eve. We were seated after only a few moments, but room became crowded very soon after that. Reservations recommended. I always have the shrimp in coconut broth and my husband always has something inferior but still tasty. We love the pasteles(beef our fave). The sangria is sooo goodfresh and really hits the spot. We had a dessert toosomething with burnt caramel. Really lovely time from start to finish. Our waiter(who may also have been owner) was great with servicewhich in past was poky.

I don't think it's closing anytime soon but this really is a terrific neighborhood restaurant. Excellent Brazilian food & tremendously friendly staff. The dishes are rich and flavorful - the Picandinho is DELICIOUS. It's also as intimate an space as you want it to be - terrific for first dates or even for groups of friends. Also, be sure to order the fruity caprinhas - strong but sweet!

We had reservations and were seated right away - the place was the right level of ambiance, a bit dark, but overall amazing. I had the Moranga, which is the vegetarian butternut squash and vegetable dish, and it was magnificent. The flan was also amazing, I recommend it highly. According to my boyfriend, the sausage was deliciously hot and worth ordering. Our waitress was a bit slow, but that didn't ruin the night. I highly reccomend this place to anyone looking for great food and a fun night out.

I've ordered delivery twice from this delicious restaurant. The feijoada is almost as good as my mother's! I'm looking forward to having dinner at the restaurant itself.

I do love Zebu, don't get me wrong. I have been there many times. But I've seen the portions get tinier and tinier, and prices getting higher and higher.. well over $20 entrees. Especially the carne cozida. It consists of 4 or 5 little bites of meat. The chicken with okra is also tiny. Tasty, though. So nowadays we only go there on special occasions or if we are in the mood to indulge... or if we are not very hungry and just want to relax. I'd go much more often if I didn't walk out hungry without ordering sides or appetizers. Oh yeah, this is another thing: they know the portions are small so they try to push sides, including rice, which is kind of annoying. In most Brazilian restaurants rice comes with almost every dish with no extra cost. Well, to be fair, the moranga can be satisfying. But it certainly won't fill anyone up. Very friendly staff and super cute decor. Great for romantic dinners. Drinks aren't cheap either but they are very tasty and unique. I think they do a great job at Zebu overall. It is actually kinda hard to find a good Brazilian restaurant in NYC anymore. The portion size thing is the one and only drawback. I hope they work on this.
