Delicious, authentic Brasiliero food from several regions. We've eaten here several times and every single thing has been absurdly delicious. Speak a little Portuguese to the staff and they'll be your best friends.

Been there the first time for a farewell dinner I was impressed by the taste of every dish and the courtesy of the servers. Decided to go back for Valentine's day, and even with a fixed menu, it didn't disappoint. Most likely my favourite restaurant in the city!

The service was absolutely horrible! BEYOND HORRIBLE! We were ignored the entire time. I had to ask for water 20 minutes after arrival and 15 minutes later I asked who was even our server and could we order a drink? I noticed 45 minutes after arrival we had a drink and identified someone to be our server. If it wasn't pouring down rain at 9 p.m. on a Saturday night then I would have walked out.

The staff was distant, aloof, rude, unhelpful and clearly wanted to be with their Brazilian friends and not care about anyone else not Brazilian. We could barely get 1 drink out of them let alone have them ask how the food was, did we need anything, want more water - hey refill on the drink where you make 300 % mark up --- nahhhhh! Sh*t service and I walked 25 minutes in the rain to get there.

Food was creative and tasty - no doubt but they should turn it into a buffet where you don't depend on a human to get fed.

Horrible

Wow. This place was absolutely amazing. Everything we tried was fantastic. I wish I remembered our server's name, but he was excellent. Everything he recommended we loved. We will DEFINITELY be back. The feijoada is superb.

This small cosy restaurant has really good food. The national dish of Brazil and their fish stew with seafood were both terrific. I didn't think the cheese bread was as fantastic as other reviewers indicated. And the cheese and chicken croquettes were definitely not as good as the main courses were.

I have been eating at Berimbao with my wife for several years because it is my favorite restaurant in New York City. It is a cozy, neighborhood gem with welcoming, professional staff and terrific, authentic food. Everything on the varied and creative menu is excellent but I particularly love the chicken rice soup. It is a delicious, substantial meal in itself, a perfect antidote to a cold winter evening. Also, the salpicao salad, the salmao (salmon) tropical, and the shrimp strogonoff are all great. We live on the Upper East Side but gladly make the trip to the Village to eat at Berimbao. It is a truly terrific restaurant!

Authentic Brazilian cuisine in a artistically vibrant setting in the heart of NoHo. Recommended to all interested in experiencing Brazilian drinks or meal options from all corners of this huge and diverse country. Backyard seating available in summer time. Good for dates, special occasions, and friends get together. Can't go wrong.

The food was very tasty. The dishes we selected were rich but fitting for a cold night. The waitresses were very nice and accomodating. Unfortunately, the maitre-d/host was less than friendly. We made a reservation via opentable and were less than 10 min late. After being asked to wait for several minutes, he came back telling us that we were more than 15 mins late and that he already gave our table away. We had to wait for another table for another 10 mins. The second thing that left an aftertaste was when we got a check, an automatic gratuity of 20% was added (the 20% was calculated on the total with tax and we were only 4 people). We were planning to leave a generous tip but being "forced" into a mandatory amount seemed quite unethical.

I was excited by all the rave reviews but not very impressed with the actual meal. Food was OK, but nothing special. I've eaten in many Brazilian restaurants in the US and in Brazil so I am familiar with the cuisine. Even the Caipirinha was uninspired. Service was terrific.

Based on other reviews, we gave Berimbau a try and were very pleased. We go out to eat a lot, as do our friends who dined with us, and all of us are still raving about how good the food was.
Couple that with a nice atmosphere (terrific Brazilian music in the background but not overwhelming) and friendly, relaxed service and we had a really terrific evening out.

Very good meal! Highly recommend the trio of empanadas, the special Brazilian bread, and the croquettes. Service was friendly and very happy to help make a recommendation based our tastes. Very bright and light restaurant - the lighting is adjusted as the night progresses to feel more intimate. Great Brazilian beer and really enjoyed the dry white wine. Highly recommend this place - I didn't even know if I liked Brazilian food before this visit! Careful when you are looking for it - it's a smaller store front!

Enjoyed the atmosphere. I also enjoyed my entree. Rest of my table had entrees that looked pretty ordinary--steak, beef stew.
I would go again and try another sea food dish as the shrimp I had was great.

Food was great. Waitress seemed like she would rather be doing something besides waiting on us. When I asked that she turn the over loud music down so my dinner companion and I could converse, she frowned but did lower the volume on the music. When I wanted the check, it took quite a while for me to get her attention.
