    Cash only. Only parts of the menu were available, Music too loud. Waiter rewarded himself with 20% gratuity and included it on our bill as if we were not able to decide by ourself. Food was boring...

    Samba and Bahia night every Friday at Miss Favela. Really great brazilian band starts playing at 10pm. The place gets really busy so get there early if you want a seat for dinner.

    Mmmmm... Kinda overpriced but cool location. Now if you want a really good Brazilian restaurant you should try Favela Grill in Astoria!

    Food it’s ok ,but service it’s really bad We waited for almost an hour to have our order.A $30 fee was charged because we brought a cake and had they cut it , they don’t split the bill if you ask it .

    From a Brazilian born and raised: the food is meh except for the bolinhos de bacalhau; go for the caipirinha de limao, others are just mixed drinks, not real caipis; the atmosphere is nice though

    One of the most obnoxious sidewalk crowds I've encountered in my decade of Williamsburg-livin'. Please don't be those people.

    This is definitely an afternoon drinking spot, dead on weekend evenings. Might have something to do with the feeling of being in a mafia movie under the Williamsburg bridge...

    Saturday lunch is great. Live samba music, savory steak and beautiful people. Have a caipirinha on the terrace. #perfectsaturday

    The music was really fun but it was so crowded. Of course, it was a Saturday night so that was expected, but felt like they should have capped the number of people inside at some point.

    The most watered down caipirinhas I've had; não valeu a pena. The music & dancing however was fantastic!

    Meh. I'm Brazilian and wasn't impressed. To start with, the food is not authentic. Waiters only care about money. If you don't want to order more food, they'll kick you out. NOT the Brazilian way.

    20 dollar cover, loud and super packed. If you're looking for a Brazilian restaurant in Williamsburg I say go to Beco.

    On Saturdays you gotta eat up to $20 pp. Doesn't include drinks. Strange rule. But good service and yucca fries

    The service here is terrible and nothing special to note about the food. However, the upside is that the cocktails are strong and delicious.

    The little waiter had the worst attitude and service ever. Good food but cash only, no specials unless at the bar. Would never go again or recommend .

    Worst service and when our waitress asked if we needed change, had the audacity of taking her tip out before returning the difference.

    Cash only. You'll need a good amount of it if you're drinking pitchers

    The manager/staff were so rude. My two friends and I were told that we weren't "spending enough money to sit down and eat." We were going to spend over $150 and it's CASH ONY.

    Food is okay but service is the worst. They kick you out to quickly get other costumers even if you're still eating and consuming beverages. No respect.

    Been here 5+ times
    Having a drink of chacaca here is like getting a smoothie and a shot of liquor all at once. Bartenders are very nice. It's relaxed and festive. A joy of a place.

    The food is great. The pitchers of caipirinha are strong but you'll forget and order more once the live samba band starts playing. Don't be shy. Make sure to dance.

    Nice place, the atmosphere is very good, you really can enjoy it. But the night can be really expensive very quickly ( 30% more with the tips and taxes on the original price), be careful!!

    Carnival festive is in effect. Packed so if you planning to eat. Make reservation and plan to wait a bit. Good looking fun crowd.

    The owner Angela is just a downer. She assaulted me when I gave her feedback about my bad experience at her bar and one of the owners tried to hit me saying that I "should get a wife" # homophobic

    Small, lively place with friendly staff. Make a reservation for weekend brunch or be prepared to wait at least an hour. Once the live music starts it gets too loud to talk/hear. Great drinks & food.

    Look over your bill closely - they add gratuity into the bill without telling you.

    $20 min per person for food on saturdays per table. The food has improved but if I go back I'd get there early & hang at the bar.

    I used to love this place, sad to see how they reduced the portions and increased the prices. On top of that: slow service and bad quality overall 😩

    This place is a theme park. It’s not Brazilian at all. (I’m Brazilian, btw) They will put all their friends ahead of you if there’s a wait. I guess it is Brazilian, after all! Go to Berimbau instead.

    Good food, good atmosphere and lethal caipiriñhas..

    Go on saturday afternoons for a wild, sweaty dance party. Beware the pitchers, one will knock you on your ass.
