Brazilian
Casa Restaurant serves Brazilian home cooking from different regions of this vast country. Being a delicious seafood moqueca from Bahia in the northeast or a dish made with organic chicken and okra from the state of Minas Gerais or the national dish of Brazil, the feijoada, a stew of prime meats and black beans with many little dishes on the side. The caipirinha (kai peh ree nha), the national drink of Brazil, comes in the original flavor of lime or in tropical variations such as passion fruit, cashew fruit and coconut. The desserts are all made in house daily and the Brazilian chocolate bonbons, the brigadeiros, are a Brazilian's favorite!

Serving sizes were way too small for the prices. $9 for one fried banana and $28 for mediocre feijoada.

The food was delicious, fresh and light. This was my third visit, the first was on a snowy evening and the place was almost empty. With the windows facing onto the quaint Village streets and the snow coming down, it was magical. Food was just perfect. We returned for a Saturday night dinner and the noise level was deafening; unless we shouted as did most everyone else there, we couldn't hear each other at all. I felt I could hardly taste the food. We left asap. But on the most recent visit, it was not too full, and it was as lovely as I remembered, and the food seemed more delicious -- the empanada appetizer was heavenly - so light and fluffy. Seafood and vegetarian plate were both absolutely perfect. The bar is tiny and looks just right for a drink and maybe an appetizer. Overall, very nice, just not, perhaps, on a Saturday night, unless you are with a party that is really whooping it up, and then, you will have a wonderful time.

My wife and I so enjoyed our time at Casa. The menu selections are excellent. Our Brazilian drink was perfect - not too sweet. You will want to get advice regarding the wine list. Many of the wines were unfamiliar to me. The fried codfish cakes were superb. Use some of the pepper oil to put on them. My Brazilian steak was cooked perfectly and so tasty. My wife's traditional Brazilian Black Bean Soup was delicious - loaded with bacon, sausage, and beef. (I mixed some with my broccoli rice. Yummy!). And we both enjoyed the collards - cooked to perfection. Don't end your meal without have the coconut pudding with plum sauce. What a way to finish and exquisite meal served with personable, prompt, and reliable service. Highly recommended!

Third time to Casa with 10-plus years between our first and most recent visits. As far as I can tell, nothing has changed and that is a very, very good thing. The caipirinhas were both refreshing and potent. Portions are generous and every dish we have ever tried has been delicious.

My only complaint was that they brought my mother Eggs Benedict when she ordered Eggs Florentine, but they quickly remedied that. The “shot” of spicy bean soup was ethereal. Wish it was available in a larger portion!

Casa Brazilian is located in a beautiful section of the West Village. The ambiance was warm, elegant and very cozy. Our table of 6 was ready for us when we arrived. The noise level was comfortable for a nice conversation for everyone to participate. The servers were friendly and courteous and did not rush us. The meal was delicious and satisfying. The choices were multiple and included genuine Brazilian dishes and drinks. There were also vegetarian choices. Very happy with our experience tonight. It deserves the 5 stars.

Excellent service, drinks and entrees, but skip the starters---overpriced and questionable. For appatizers we ordered sausages (which were actually 4 breakfast sausage links with onions) and cod fish croquettes (much too salty) and both were quite overpriced. Stick with entrees and drinks (both quite delish!!). We will be returning

Great choice for a semi-quiet get together with foodie friends who were new to Brazilian cuisine. As the caipirinhas progressed, the evening grew more boisterous! Don’t miss the Bahia seafood stew or the sautéed shrimp app. Feijoada was a little light on meat and heavy on the beans, but still excellent. Will go back!

Delicious and authentic Brazilian cuisine, with wholesome freshly prepared ingredients. Very decor-conscious, all very pleasant; right down to the choice of soap in the bathrooms. The one downside: really damn expensive for the volume of food you receive. Five stars for taste, two stars (max) for value. Nice for a special-ish occasion though.

My favorite Brazilian restaudant in the city. My wife and I were married at the City Clerk’s office on Wednesday and the only restaurant we wanted to go to afterwards was Casa. The pao de queijo of yucca flour cheesy bread is the best “bread basket”, I love the street empanadas with beef, cheese and an extra beef instead of heart of palm because the beef empanada is so good (i love adding the spicy green sauce and chopped tomato and onion sauce to it. The sausage appetizer with onions is amazing. The strogonoff of top/bottom sirloin with a penne vodka like sauce is so good and rich, and the seafood stew is my favorite on earth - with squid, shrimp, whitefish and coconut milk, palm oil, tomatoes and cilantro is so good (I put all the farofa yucca baked flour and spicy green sauce in the soup and mix it and eat with the lovely rice). The passion fruit mousse is amazingly delcious with that perfect passion fruit sour. If you like caramel flan, it’s very good. Caipirinhas are Brazil’s national drink and a must at Casa but you can add passion fruit and other juices to the lime standard. Ligia the server is so attentive and sweet. Service is timely and excellent. Prices are very reasonable as this is as good as Brazilian food in the US gets. Relaxed atmosphere as well. Personally, I don’t like when I go to a restaurant and feel self-conscious about my experience and not relaxed or fully enjoying the moment (I’m the customer right? cater to me not your sense of superiority as a restaurant) as you might feel at a trendy and/or Michelin NYC restaurant that NYC suffers a lot from) - there is none of this at Casa. Go there, relax, enjoy, love it.

Nice Brazilian food ( take it from a Brazilian!), delicious drinks.
The space has a lot of light streaming from the glass long window than runs along the whole room. A great feeling, rare in the village less than spacious restaurants.

When I eat a Casa is like eating home made Brazilian food. A bit more expensive but it is a nice ambiance. it can get a bit loud when crowded; it is a small and cozy place. The food I feel sometimes is better some days than others. Definitely recommend it.

Our food was delicious, the service was great - including a wonderful wine recommendation. However, there was a table next to us that was extremely loud, guests were shouting during their conversation and given the size and acoustics of the restaurant, made it unpleasantly loud at times.

I like Casa so much I was there last week and came back again to show two others. The moqueca, the seafood stew with palm oil, coconut milk, cilantro, tomatoes is so good with the farofa (yucca flour). My friends loved the beef strogonoff and feijoada they got!

The moqueca - the seafood stew with coconut milk, palm oil, cilantro and tomato - is, simply, my favorite stew or soup I’ve ever had. The pasteizinhos - like small empanadas, one with beef, one with cheese and one with heart of palm (though I ask for a second cheese instead of heart of palm just because I like a cheese filled pasteizinho so much) are delicious. The passion fruit mousse is delicious if you like passion fruit!

We came to watch Brazil play in the World Cup. It was a fun spirited group of fans and the food and service was wonderful as we have always found over the many years we have come here. We were sad that Brazil did not win but they played a great game.
