    Our waiter was great. It took a little time at the beginning to get started and the reservation was slightly botched. The tapas were great; worth the trip.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 7/22/2013
    My wife and I decided to finally try Brasilina for our wedding anniversary. We were greeted by our server who went out of her way to make us feel at home. We immediately enjoyed the atmosphere and decor. Since we were dining relatively early in the evening, the place was fairly quiet, but the noise level never became annoying even as the place filled up, and we could still hear the music. She helped with menu choices, even pointing out when certain dishes were Brasilian specialties. It was difficult to decide with the many delicious and often unique choices, including many tapas dishes, which we often favor in lieu of larger entree portions. The wine selection was also nice. Dessert was also delicious. We look forward to returning.

    Found the restaurant on open table and decided to try it out. Very nice atmosphere and loved the beams in the restaurant. The service was very prompt and friendly and it felt like a team working together to bring a great dining experience to its customers. I ordered the shrimp and cheese broth in a pumpkin and it was fantastic. Only down side was there wasn't enough rice for it and I got charged $5 more for additional rice :/. The drinks were pretty decent as well

    we only had the tapas, but they were all excellent, and the caipirinha was as good as in Brasil. The service was excellent, and the noise level was energetic but allowed for conversation. I highly recommend Brasilna

    Everything was great except for one thing which isn't too bad but could be better. The waiter wasn't to responsive and aware when when need. After I was done with a drink, I waited about 10-15min for the next one, and only because I waived my hand like school kid. Had she been more aware that customers needed something, this review would have been great all around.

    IMy best friend and I loved the food 'cause they looked and tasted great! Our overall experience is very satisfying, the only annoying experience we had though with the busboy who just plucked our plates of appetizers and basket of bread from the table without our permission. Service can definitely improve, nevertheless, we will go back and recommend Brasilina to our foodie friends!

    I was there with a group of 3 on a Friday night at 8:00p, and we sat on the left side of the bar in the back. While the food was good, the noise was too much. We felt like we were shouting the whole time. Also, out service was spotty, which was bad because the place was never full during our stay.

    Amazing Brazilian food, the decoration is great too (im brazilian and most of the good brazilian restaurants i've been to in new york looked cheap - i hate the white linen on the table top...). The food took a while to come (apps and main course), but the fact that it was delicious covered that one up... Excellent ambiance, my only complaint would be the kitchen not being so fast...

    This is a very convenient spot to the theatres. I really enjoyed going to a place in the area that wasn't catering to tourists and had excellent and authentic food. The service was very friendly and knowledgable. The drinks were excellent. You can eat here casually or have a quicker meal. I will definitely go back again.

    My fiance and I celebrated the one year anniversary of our trip to Brazil with a date night at Brasilina. We were pleasantly surprise to find a restaurant not geared for tourists that close to the Theater District. The kitchen nailed every dish they served, and our waiter Luke was on top of his game.

    moqueca was underseasoned. feijoada portion size was about a half cup. two pieces of meat in it. it's supposed to have many kinds of variety cuts including on the bone, but this was not intended for real people. i say go to 46th st (or probably somewhere in queens) if you want food and portions that are like what you might get in brasil.

    This place looked so great, but: 1) waaaay under-staffed and the waiter couldn't even open a bottle of wine (I had to do it for him, no kidding) 2) the place was so dark that we had to use our iPhones' light to read the menu 3) my main course, ordered rare, was cooked to a crisp. They re-did it but by then everything else was cold 4) the place was over-the-top noisy, made noisier by the two hostesses who did nothing at all 5) they had no idea what to do with an OpenTable check What a disappointment. Flee!

    One of my favorite restaurants in NYC. The food is always exceptional, the staff is friendly and helpful, but never intrusive. Drinks are great. Lighting is awesome. I've taken several friends, and they've all had great experiences. The Tuesday night after Sandy hit, they were open with a scaled-back menu, and the experience was a silver lining of being hit by the storm.

    Food was pretty good, particularly the stroganoff which I think is their strongest item on the menu. Service was remarkable. I asked if they had acai and they didn't have it on the menu but they went ahead and blended it anyway! It's nice to have found a place that serves acai in NY, so I'll be goong back frequently.

    The restaurant was recommended for it's food, and I went there with two friends. We had a great time and really enjoyed our evening out without husbands and kids. The food was superb, it came in large portions (we shared starters) and they also served nice cocktails. There was a rather noisy group at the bar, but apart from that group the ambiance was good and lively. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and we liked looking at the kitchen staff and the dishes they prepared. Overall a place that I definitely would recommend to friends going into New York for a couple of days.

    The last two times I've been there they've been out of the hibiscus cocktail. They should just take it off of the menu. We had service issues this time, with it being very slow, the server bringing the wrong cocktail and then waiting an very long time for the right one to arrive. Food was great, service was disappointing.

    Family owned restaurant with very nice ambiance and a unique Brazilian menu. Food was excellent and was told it was from Brazilian grandma's recipe. Waitress was a very nice Brazilian young lady adding to the authenticy of the restaurant. The layout of the restaurant is open and you are not on top of any other dinner. Quiet bar in center of restaurant is perfect for a before or after drink. A great dining experience.

    The music is way too loud. There were not a lot of guests at the restaurant and we asked our waiter to have them turn the music down. The waiter was great and they did. Bue then the music was raised and it was intrusive,and irritating. This is my third visit and the second time the music has been turned too loudly. Annoying.
