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!

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.

There are always a number of native Brazilians there, and they all swear that this is so authentic. And, everything is so tasty. Go with the Brazilian specialty cocktails. Never had a "not great" dish there. The food and fun more than offset the noisy room.

I went there with my sons and their wives on an early Saturday evening and we enjoyed taking our time to savor our drinks, dishes and enjoy each other's company. The staff was friendly, attentive and professional. The Caipirinhas were tasty, and although the appetizers were not the best Brazilian salgadinhos and pastéis they were ok. The main courses were presented nicely and tasty. They tasted like the chef adapted Brazilian dishes to more of a Continental flavor than staying loyal to the traditional Brazilian cuisine, but for those who are not familiar with it, this is a good start.

I wil NEVER go back to this place. The staff is arrogant and rude. My wife and I walked in for lunch just before 1pm on a Saturday. The place was literally empty. We were greeted by this guy behind the bar counter who questioned if we had a reservation and, since we didn't, he said they were booked and could not accommodate us (again, the place was literally empty), but we could eat at the barif we wanted to. So, we sat at the bar and even before anyone could come in and get our drinks order, I entered the restaurant website from my phone, clicked on reservations, which brought me to OpenTable. I selected a table for 2 at 1:15pm and "boom", got a table right there. I waved the person and told I had just made a reservation and OpenTable was showing plenty of availability. He just limited himself to say "no, we are fully booked". We walked out, to never go back. I don't even know if the food is good, but they have a long way to learn about how to serve customers. I searched for another Brazilian restaurant nearby and found one a few blocks away and we just walked in there and were greeted with a nice smile. It was not as fancy as Casa, but the food and service were excellent.
So, folks in NYC looking for some honest Brazilian food and expecting good service, FORGET about Casa.

One of the best restaurants in NYC. That is why it has been around for so long. The area is beautiful no matter what season of the year. The service is always amazing. Highly recommended for any occasion really. I've been there when its quiet and I've also been there when its jam packed. Awesome either way! Oh, and yes, its Brazilian.
