    the total came up to approx 70 bucks a head of course including drinks, but what came out was very little for this amount we couldve easily eat at Fogo De Chao - i think the portions are way to small. Service was outstanding and ambiance amazing. But we are there for the food and it was lacking sorry to put that out there

    After living in Brazil for many years, I can say this is like being in the top most creative chef’s restaurants in Brazil! The ambience, the art, the music, the impeccable service, the unique ingredients only found in the Amazon region and in the north east of Brazil are all found and elevated in this hip yet chique place that is in its own class representing Brazil much more than those all you can barbecue places like fogo de chão. A winner is the vegan moqueca stew with the vegan coconut based farofa 😍Also the drinks are amazing! Must go! It’s the shortest flight you can take to the best and most interesting food found in Brazil.

    Service was outstanding! Drinks were amazing! Ordered Tapioca & Cheese Dadinhos (similar to the cheese balls at other Brazilian restaurants, but with a twist since its crispy and has a great dipping sauce), Pork Belly Crackling (this was also good and the skin was fried just like the Chicharrones snacks; super good!), Ceviche (contains only white fish and I actually used the sauce to pour on the pork belly), and the grilled Octopus with rice (the octopus was a bit bland and the rice was pretty salty; not sure if it was to offset the octopus, but wasn't a fan). The East of Amazzoni is a must! its so refreshing and slips right down!

    We had an amazing experience. The food, the service, the decor all were amazing. Loved the casual ambience and the music. The food tasted home cooked. I’m not Brazilian but my boyfriend who is, said it was exceptionally good. Would definitely return to try other dishes on the menu.

    We celebrated my husband’s birthday and we enjoyed our dining experience here. The appetizers were very good, tasty, and shareable. We had the ceviche (with yucca chips was a first for us), yucca fries and pao de quiejo (warm bread with cheese and spreads is always a winner). The main dishes were huge and cooked to perfection. We ordered the beef ribs that came with the biro biro rice, farofa and salad. The mushroom with cous cous was also a favorite. Since there was an occasion, they gave us complimentary dessert that was out of this world, I don’t remember the name but it was like a caramel flan and sponge cake in one with some sweet crunchy stuff on the side, so good! We also ordered the Amazonia, chocolate mousse, that was very interesting because it had an ingredient on the side that made your mouth numb with every bite. It was a fun chance especially for my son!

    The food lacked flavor. The beef and chicken were dry. Food came out before drinks. Really found it not worth the value. Brought friends to check out a new DTLA dining spot. I was hoping for better and we were was less than impressed.

    Ceviche was the best thing we had. Fried pork belly was flavorful but a little dry and chewy. Carne sol was like a meatier beef jerky but was just ok. The interior was cute, vibe was nice, seating on the side banquettes had me feeling awkward the whole meal because I felt exposed just facing the restaurant full of people eating rather than my husband haha 😄 it was our anniversary so maybe wasn't the best choice in restaurant due to seating options.

    There is simply nothing else like Caboco in Los Angeles. It’s a wonderful culinary journey every time my husband and I have the pleasure of going for dinner. Listen to your server’s recommendations and enjoy the unique flavors that only Brazil can offer <3 10/10 location for a fun date night and the caipirinhas are to die for!

    Really interesting place! I enjoyed the drinks! Service wasn’t bad but we were just greeted a couple times by different people. We also were interrupted a little too frequently, i think they had a lot of staff and at the time not enough customers to keep them busy. I liked it overall though, really tasty food and will go back to try more.
