They do not honor reservations. They overbook reservations for slots and have an hour wait for your reservation. I had an 8 o’clock reservation and so did 40 other people. At 8:45 I still wasn’t sat for my 8pm reservation (and neither were the 40 other people waiting) and they still had open reservations open for 9,9:30,10,10:30,11. When I asked why they overbook reservations slots without being able to accommodate them, the hostess told me “that’s just how we do it here.” They should be kicked off open table and not allowed to accept reservations.

Food was a step below mediocre. Wholly overpriced for the mess that it is. Service was scattered and poor. Hostess was rude. Yet, the place was packed with drunken college kids falling off their chairs. None of the above is an exaggeration. This is my 4th review in many years on this app. It's that bad.

Kicker: they cancelled my reservation on OpenTable after I had dinner, so that they wouldn't have to pay for it.

Baby Brasa is a pretty good restaurant. The foods here taste good and are reasonably priced. From the steak stir fry to the organic and vegan options, you really can't go wrong. We tried the ceviche, the grilled shrimp, the vegan stir fry and the steak stir fry. I can confidently say that the menu items were tasty and the only issue I had was that I felt the drinks were a bit overpriced. Outside of that, this place is solid.

The food and ambiance was great. The waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable.

The only thing I would suggest is for reservations to be manager better, waiting more than 40min with rsvp is a bit too much.

Baby Brasa was an overall good experience. Unfortunately we had to do the prefix menu, because we were a party of 6. The appetizers were delicious. The mains were tasty but not what I expected. The Pink Flamingo is must!! And our server Nico was a pleasure!

While they’re on Open Table and allegedly take reservations, in practice Baby Brasa does not have a reservation system in place. We had a dinner reservation on Saturday Sep 19 but we were added to the waitlist like everyone else (including walkins) and we had to wait way past our reservation time to get a table. This is not acceptable.

Will first start with the good. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive.
The outdoor seating areas were separated by plastic although I do not think the tables were 6 feet apart. Now with the below average. The drinks had very little alcohol. The food was decent but not at all over the top. Dinner for 2 was $160. I can think of many other places to spend that amount and get far better food and drinks. I will not be back.

The food was delicious and the drinks were good but if you come here just stick to the cold items and tapas - don’t get entrees or hot food. The outdoor setup is so large and vast that the runners and busboys don’t know where food and drinks are going, they just show up with a tray of drinks and/or food mulling around with a lost look on their faces as to which table gets the stuff in their hands. It’s unfortunate because it’s not necessarily their fault. Communication is just not the best here (because of HOW LARGE the outdoor space is) and you need to literally look at the tray of food and tell the guy that it’s your stuff. We had to do this for our tapas/apps, second and third round of drinks and entrees. We also waited 35 minutes for our entrees - which didn’t arrive at the same time and the steak arrived cold. We didn’t even bother to send it back simply because we knew we wouldn’t see it again for minimum 30 minutes LOL! The food itself was tasty but the experience was so subpar and for 6 drinks, 3 tapas appetizers, and ceviche and a steak for our entree - with tax and gratuity the bill came out to $235. That much money for 2 people to have a cold, less than awesome meal just isn’t worth it to me. Maybe if you’re sat closer to the main area/restaurant - it’s not as much of a shande.

We had a reservation for 8:15 PM - the restaurant clearly overbooked because there were CROWDS of people waiting in front of the restaurant waiting to be seated packed closely together. They even had a man who's job was to make sure that people weren't spilling into the bike lane since there were so many people on the sidewalk street.

After waiting OVER AN HOUR, we were finally seated. The tables were extremely close together and waiters repeatedly brought other peoples' food/drinks to our table asking if it was ours. Overall, this was an extremely bad experience and I won't be back. It's unacceptable to wait for over an hour when you have a reservation and the service was extremely lackluster.

This restaurant has been featured as an instagram trap due to the big flamingo that everyone wants to take photos with. Cute idea, but in this pandemic era it has drawn a lot of unnecessary crowds. Didn’t realize it was so scene-y until I arrived, but fortunately the food was delicious!

We made reservations for an early birthday dinner. For Starters I hate to write Bad Reviews but unfortunately I must. First of all when our waitress first sat us down she asked us if we wanted Sparkling or Tap Water? We asked for Tap and never received our water until our appetizers arrived!
Next we started noticing that they were swapping out Tables and Chairs in between everyone’s meal. Which I found was very unusual! It was definitely an inconvenience but we still gave them the benefit of the doubt. The owners sister “Victoria” eventually came by and apologized and later provided us with Complimentary Drinks! Which was very nice to ease the pain.
Afterwards our waitress was later swapped by another waitress. This particular waitress was No Where to be found. We wanted to order another round of drinks as well as our Entree’s but unfortunately she was still MIA!
Anyway eventually I spoke to Victoria and she was more than happy to take our order. Though our food and drinks came out rather rapidly. It still wasn’t enough to ease the painful experience! The food was edible the least but the drinks were Amazing!
Anyway $500 later we paid and Vowed to never go back again! This restaurant definitely needs to train their staff better and be more organized. It wasn’t busy either so that should be Absolutely No Excuse! If you want True Peruvian food make a reservation with “Jora” located in Long Island City. Their Food is Amazing including the professional staff on hand.
