We sat outside on the lovely heated terrace, which was so nice and cozy. Food and drinks are absolutely outstanding, and live music was an added bonus!

I requested indoor seating when making the reservation. When we arrived to check in with hostess she said our table is not ready. We waited 40 minutes for our table to sit outside. It was windy and cold on Saturday 11/6. Clearly I requested indoor table but the hostess is an imbecile.

The restaurant has created a lovely outdoor atmosphere filled with plants that isolate the diners from the street, and lots of heaters working effectively on a late October evening. There was live music, a singer, --even on a Monday evening--that was pleasant and not overwhelmingly loud. We shared ceviche and tuna tartar and I had the flounder--all very good.

Wonderful, delicious food - top notch! Very small portions for quite higher than expected prices. Bring your credit card!! Service was pleasant and helpful, the shed outside is one of the best I've experienced -- takes you out of the city for an hour or so. Live music helped! Presentation of food creative and fun. Drinks were perfect (though small). If you don't mind spending a few extra bucks I really recommend Baby Brasa!!

When we arrived they did not have a table ready and the kitchen was closed. They blamed it on OpenTable and once I walked away they proceeded to complain about me in Spanish at which point, as a Spanish speaker, I called it out and told them it was incredibly inappropriate for them to act in this manner. Super disappointed isn’t his entire experience considering I was with a client.

Quick service with special attention to the excellent appetizers - the menu emphasizes Brazilian flavors over Peruvian, but we enjoyed everything we tried. The covered outdoor seating was quiet, clean, and filled with lush garden-like elements.

SO HORRIBLE! We had a 9pm reservation, we arrived around 0840pm and we were told to join a long line of at least 20 people waiting for a table. When we checked with the hostess around 9pm, we were told once again that’s we have to wait because everyone that are ahead of us on the line (about 12 parties ) had 9pm reservations as well, what a joke!! At that moment my and I decided that our time was too valuable. The idea of standing in a long line on a side walk after 9pm for food when you have a reservation is such a turn off. NEVER AGAIN!

Don’t book a reservation on open table or Resy you’ll end up having no reservation and not getting served. Had two reservations and they didn’t honor any of them. The manager lacks hospitality. Hostess was super sweet. She sat us down and gave us our menu then the manager came and said they can’t serve us kitchen is closed. Kept forcing us to get drinks when we came to eat! Manager went on to say we had no reservations when I showed her the open table reservation she had nothing to say other than that’s a mistake. But both open table and resy had later reservation times listed.

Went on a Saturday evening for 2 people at 8pm. Was too loud and crazy, girls yelling constantly throughout our dinner. If that's the vibe you're going for, it's an okay choice. Service was poor, food was pretty good. Pricy.

Our dinner on Tuesday night was great, for the most part. We had a reservation for 4ppl originally inside (because that’s all that was available to book) but when we arrived, we asked for a table outside and were accommodated, so we were happy about that. We ordered the calamari, grilled octopus for apps & Amazon fried rice, steak stir fry, fish tacos and tuna avocado ceviche as mains, we had a bunch of drinks - BB martini, 420 & coconut caipirinha (delish but the Baby Brasa martini could use a bit more vodka, it was all juice).

All in all, everything was good, except our waitress Maricela paid no mind to us. We had to flag some other wait staff each time we needed something, from additional drinks, to asking about dessert to requesting our bill. At one point she was right in front of the main entrance but would not turn not once to check on her tables and we were right by the entrance to the outdoor seating, so you couldn’t miss us flailing our arms trying to get her attention. When she would finally come to our table after someone else got her for us, she seemed to be annoyed. This lack of service kind of dampened the evening as we were enjoying ourselves outside of that. BTW, Bingo with Bryan was fun!

I know everyone has off days but in case I’m not the only one who has experienced this, I thought it was good to mention it.

One of the most overly priced, underwhelming experiences ever. Booked this reservation at a specific time to receive a perk on OpenTable points...despite us arriving early, they canceled our reservation to not fulfill the OT points. A party of 3, $600 down the hole, luckily there was a pizzeria close by

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.
