Great alternative to the sissi-sissi Brazilian restaurants in NY, like Casa. This is one is down to earth and has real Brazilian food. Don't forget to ask about the slow-cooked rib, it's delicious. Can get busy on weekend nights.

Delicious food, reasonable
Delicious food, reasonable prices, and very good service. Only problem is that restaurant is very small and cramped (kind of not anything you can do about this in this area, so you kind of just have to roll with it.)

Staff are extremely nice (helps if you know a bit of Portuguese) and the food was delicious. Would like to see how it compares at a different time then when we went.

Enjoyable and delicious experience
Food was authentic and excellent, great service, really friendly waiters. Overall very enjoyable and delicious experience - especially given that we were a group of 6 people and the restaurant is relatively small. We will definitely go back.

Good authentic Brazilian food
Took my daughter here for her birthday. She has lived in Brazil and wanted to try this restaurant. She ordered for all of us and everything was wonderful. She said it reminded of the food she had while living in Rio de Janeiro. The flavors and seasoning was simply delicious and the drinks were great also.

Very well crafted authentic
Very well crafted authentic Brazilian staples. Great appetizers, drinks and entries including vegetarian, fish and beef and deserts. Up front is casual drinking and dining for a boisterous young drinking crowd and there is a small dining room in the back for intimate quiet dining. Highly recommended if you appreciate the casual authentic Brazilian dining.

Brasilian food done right
Berimbau Do Brasil was another open table find. We went because of the 1,000 points and the location but will be back again. Service was lovely and the menu very authentic. Seafood was fresh, vegetarian platters were lively and the caipirinhas were excellent, especially at the happy hour price. Definitely a repeat visit in our future.

Brazilian dishes in West Village
I loved this place.
I am Brazilian and have been to a few Brazilian restaurants in NYC, but they all came up short of my expectations.
I was looking for a nice Brazilian restaurant to take a date to and through a few clicks on Google I read the reviews for Berimbau do Brasil, and I couldn't have made a better decision.
The place lacks a bar, which is a shame because I'd love to stop by for happy hours, yet thats probably one of its charms. The place is very small, which makes it special, and was a lovely place to take my date to and introduce him to Brazilian cooking.
The staff was attentive and polite and the food was delicious.

Transport yourself to Brazil!
Great little Brazilian place, has a few outdoor tables, attentive service, good cocktails and delicious food. If you like steak, I highly recommend the a fraldinha! I am Portuguese and dined with a Brazilian, we both agreed the food was very authentic.

The food was simply amazing, the fried yucca with the fraldinha was delicious. The sauce just made the dish finger-licking worthy!

The looks of the restaurant can deceive you because it does not look like a big thing, but the food was very good and the caipirinhas and service exceeded our expectations.

We really enjoyed this incredible
We really enjoyed this incredible Brazil (Brasil) experience. Nice selection of entries, including meat, seafood. The appetizers are excellent and the sorbet and flan desserts perfection. The service is outstanding. The young gentleman was attentive, knowledgable and provided amazing service. Try out this wonderful gem and tell your friends. You will be amazed. By the way, all fresh ingredients were used. Nice.

A Real Brazilian Delight
If you really want to taste the real flavors of Brazil, you need to try Berimbau. One of the best Muquecas in town.
Everything is cooked on the spot and spiced perfectly. Don't forget to order the awesome caipirinhas made with fresh fruit.

Great food for a great price
I took my husband here for Father's Day. The food was excellent; we both had the skirt steak, yucca fries, rice and collard greens. For dessert we had the passion fruit custard. Everything was amazing. It's a small sized restaurant but it wasn't crowded which is always a plus for me. Although you can, I wouldn't bring my son there. He's only 1 and this is not a small child friendly place; also the menu is not fit for a child's palette. I've also come here during the week for lunch and the lunch menu is equally great. The portion sizes are great and it's not pricey. I reccommend coming here for dinner, drinks or both. Nice decor; a real hot spot.

A Dining Gem !
While looking for a some place to have a nice dinner in the West Village area, saw an ad in Time Out NY , decided to try it and both my friend and I thought it was quite good!
The service was outstanding, the menu was a culinary delight and the presentation was top tier. We each had a drink , the Pao de Queijo (cheese bread) and Acarajé (black eye peas and shrimp) for appetizers and shared their Moqueca a Baiana (seafood stew) for our entree .
All in all, a great find at a reasonable price!

Greatest Brazilian food
I have previously been there for brunch and really enjoyed their food specially the cod fish hash . Been told by the staff that I should try their dinner I made my trip back a week after my first visit and im glad I did. Its a small although cozy restaurant with an open kitchen . The food was authentic and tasty but really tasty , We started with the pao de qeijo slider sooooo good .As main course I had a picanha and my girlfriend a seafood stew both very delicious. Staff was extremely friend and the all speak portuguese :)))
Definitely coming back

good food and service
My son and I wandered into this place and did not want to leave. The steak and red snapper were both delicious and the servers were so warm and helpful. We will go again

consistently good food
Good food, very generous portions, interesting selections, great drinks. This has become a favorite of ours when we're in the neighborhood. The staff is friendly too and even when the place is full it never seems crowded.

Small but tasty authentic brazilian cooking. Have taken several brazilian clients there and they all love the food. Great attentive service and strong caipirinhas

We were quite rushed, so we had only main courses and left, but everyone's food was excellent.

Best Brasilian in NYC
Berimbau's dishes are full of flavor, priced right, and make me feel like I am dining in Brasil. This is not a gorge yourself on unlimited meats rodizio restaurant. This is delicious, quality dining. Made even better by the welcoming and friendly staff.

As a Brazilian living in NYC, it was great to find a small, comfortable restaurant with all the food from home. The food was fresh, the caipirinhas were delicious (made with real fruit), and the service exceptional. They really made me feel like I was home!
