The menu at Batuqui is full of exciting and unique choices and they are known for their authentically grilled top sirloin steak called Picanha. They offer appetizers like the Frango Passarinho which is fired chicken in a cilantro sauce or the Salgadinhos which are savory hand-rolled Brazilian bar snacks and entrees like the hearty traditional Brazilian party dish called Feijoada. They have fantastic salads and an array of intriguing Brazilian entrees. Choices include fish, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options in addition to the grilled meats and Brazilian steaks that make Batuqui such an appealing spot. Love desserts? Their homemade chocolate bon bons called Brigadeiros or Coconut Butter Cake are amazing too!

We could not recommend this restaurant enough - it is fantastic - the food is fabulous, our waiter Juliana was amazing, and save room for the Coconut Butter Cake - We will be back soon....
There was some confusion on the menu available for the evening. We were instructed to use the QR code to view the menu online AND also given a "Restaurant Week" menu as an option. We had 3 different people come to us as we settled in. This was our first visit so we were just following the instruction. We decided our meal off the online menu and were told that menu was not available during "Restaurant Week" but yet we watched other tables being told it was available. It was very confusing. Our food was delicious regardless and I guess we can come back and get something new. The passion fruit caipirinha beverages were the best we ever had! Our bon bon dessert was not good. It tasted like a cheap Tootsie Roll. I gave mine to my husband. Our waitperson was very knowledgeable about our Gluten Free options and guided us through. We are looking forward to another beyond savory meal!
If you are seeking an inviting, warm, delicious and authentic Brazilian experience, Batuqui is the place to dine. There are several tasty and hearty options for vegans and vegetarians, my son is a vegetarian and loves dining here.
There is a beautiful front and back patio and cozy interior dining as well. The owners and staff are always delighted to treat you and serve you excellent meals prepared with love and care. Highly recommend.
Excellent selections from nice wide range of flavors. Very unique entrees. Loved it. Everyone in the party enjoyed their selections. We'll come again.
Lovely setting for dinner, warm ambience, delicious food! Menu is exciting/different...not your run-of-the-mill dinner out. Happy to see choices for both carnivores and vegans. Yum.
We dined on a Tuesday to ensure no crowds. The waitstaff were very informative, & friendly. Staff wore masks. I ordered the seafood dish, my friend, the short ribs. We were both very happy. The Caprihana was perfectly made.
WE got off to a rough start because we reserved for the patio, but the patio was full. So, we were the only two inside . . . and they forgot to wait on us. But the service more than made up for this oversight. The chef offered us a complimentary appetizer of queso blanco with honey which was soooo good. All of our troubles went away. I had the salmon, perfectly cooked with rice and plantains. We also tried the red wine from Uruguay which was earthy and delightful. The meal was perfect.
Wonderful staff, delicious food and a cozy ambiance. Drinks from the bar were great as well.
my second time there. this last time i ordered the stroganoff de frango...which was really really salty. it would have been delicious with a lot less. i should have said something but did not. the coconut cake is really good.
We throughly enjoyed Batuqui and will be going back again soon. The food was outstanding. We were there early on a Saturday evening and the service was a bit slow. We chalked it up to a shift change. Other than we had a great experience. It was starting to get nosier as we were walking out. We sat outside in the back tent and the heaters provide more than enough warmth. Overall terrific place.
Amazing food and wonderful service. We had a variety of dietary needs at the table, and everyone was extremely happy and satisfied with their dinners -- and drinks!
Delicious food! Tried new dishes that we fantastic and very seasonal. Service is excellent. They are always very attentive to the customers.
Our food was delicious, our service was great but the prices seem a bit high.
Worth every single penny. The staff are friendly and very approachable. Food is delicious and the presentation was absolutely incredible. Felt very safe eating there during a pandemic. This is definitely a gem we will be returning to.
Excellent service and the culinary always delights. Thank you.
Really great to have a Brazilian restaurant in Cleveland. Everything we tried was delicious. The servers gave good recommendations and were well versed with the menu.
The food is always on point and delicious! Been here many times and they never disappoint!!!
Great food and atmosphere; we've been coming regularly since the Sergio's/Sarava days. Only complaint is how ridiculous the pricing has gotten; it's almost as though they are trying to recoup COVID losses plate-by-plate. As tough as this year has been for everyone, a restaurant just can't do this. The prices are out-of-whack with every other good restaurant in the whole CLE area.
We'll keep coming back. But they need to lower their prices so people aren't put off by it.
Batuqui offers the real Brazilian traditional food experience in a very upscale style without losing in flavor. From appetizers to desserts everything is authentic and delicious. The atmosphere is calm and they managed to make you feel in the tropics without being cliché. The staff is pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable. All together a wonderful experience you should not miss. If you were still wondering whether to go there or not, just book it now!
Love this place!!!
Will definitely visit again!!!!!
Food was phenomenal! Wait staff seemed as though they loved their job and knew everything about the menu!
Fantastic evening. Thank you!
Great food and atmosphere. Service was slow. Great experience for sure and would do it again.
Very authentic Brazilian restaurant that has an amazing menu. Items are definitely made on premises and are fresh. They had seasonal items also.
The Brazilian drinks and food are amazing. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening out.
Amazing food and atmosphere.
For starters there are too many good things to say about this restaurant. Batuqui by far Has the most meticulous, thoughtful and compassionate staff I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. The food is out of this world with organic locally sourced ingredients. I only know this because as we were dining, a friend of ours “who owns a local garden” was making a produce delivery. She filled us in on her history with the owner and the freshness standards she keeps. But all of that is just the tip of the iceberg. My girlfriend and I had a reservation for our anniversary. I wanted to do something special for our anniversary so I ordered flowers to be delivered to the restaurant. I made a note in my reservation request asking if it was okay to have flowers delivered. Last-minute, the delivery company canceled due to distance. I was already coordinating with “Fran” the manager as she called me in response to my note on the reservation. She then Took it upon herself to make a run to the flower shop to get flowers for my anniversary. Not only that but she got a card as well as having the chef write “happy anniversary” on our desert. The owners, Fran and our waitress in conjunction made this a night we won’t forget. I know this is a lengthy review but it is well warranted. This was our first time at Batuqui but definitely not our last. Thank you guys again for the amazing night. 💜
Our food and drinks were yummy but the service was incredible! Definitely took the whole experience to the next level. The dishes are a bit more pricey, but the experience is well worth it! Looking forward to visiting again.
Amazing food, relaxing but upbeat ambiance, and super friendly service!
One of my favorite restaurants in CLE. Really outstanding. I travel to Brazil at least twice a year, and it would be one of the best in São Paulo too.
Love Batuqui! Amazing food and atmosphere every time I go.
We had a party of (7) and sat out in the patio. Service was perfect- we had multiple servers assisting throughout our meal.
Food was incredible. We each had a different entree, and shared four different appetizers. All the food was fantastic. The flavors were robust and complimentary, and you can taste the freshness of all the ingredients.
Do not miss the coconut butter cake for dessert!
The food was great and the patio out back is beautiful.
Food was excellent! Drinks very very sweet and not that good.
I got the $14 margarita and it was horrible. Our server was completely boring and uninterested. Never checked on us, and our first round of drinks took over 30 minutes to receive. When we asked her for recommendations, she said that “everything is good!” Again, just uninterested. I would definitely go back for the food, but service needs help. On a positive note, the very nice blonde lady (manager I think) was excellent as well as the water girl. Both of them apologized and were very professional. Our server couldn’t have cared less. When you have a $400 tab for 4 guests, you need to at least pretend to care!
Side note: food was incredible! Well done kitchen!
Excellent food, great service and wonderful music! Love this place.
Great place for outdoor dining! The Minas Cheese was a superb appetizer. The key lime chicken was delicious. It was a perfect summer meal - nice flavor, wonderful vegetables, perfect rice, and, my favorite, plantains. If you like more spice in your food you'll have to add it but it's available.
Batuqui is incredible every time I visit!
Very good Brazilian food! Cute ambience. Visited with 10yr-old and husband. We sat in the front garden. Clean. Nice staff. Would recommend!
We enjoyed sitting on the patio and felt very comfortable dining outside.
The menu has many options and the food was delicious. Our server was very
helpful and knowledgable about the dishes. We will definitely dine there again.
We are fingers crossed hoping for all the best for the future of Batuqui. Might suggest having the chef or owners come around to say hello to all the tables.
