What a wonderful find! The food was amazing, service was friendly and attentive, and we loved the simple and welcoming atmosphere.
Great place to have a romantic or group dinner. Food is amazing and service is outstanding. It is a little pricey but worth every penny! Definitely going back!
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.
Never disappointed ever!
Always so wonderful to dine here :)
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.
Excellent, authentic Brazilian eats. Should have Brazilian wines on the menu though. There are some great Brazilian wines that are under represented.
Always amazing food service and ambiance
ALWAYS GREAT SERVICE - EXCEPTIONAL FOOD
They know who we are, and what we want :-)
The Best Brazilian Food in NYC!
Always the best food & service. Our favorite place.
Casa is a gem! It takes the warmth and joy that is Brazil and manages to transpose it to the food, drink and atmosphere.
Client for many years. Consistent good food. Ample and varied menu. friendly service, very nice ambiance and great authentic food.
This intimate place tucked away in the West Village felt like a little bit of Brazil in NYC. The food was so good, it made my boyfriend want to explore the idea of traveling to Brazil!
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.
It was good!
It was great fun. Nice people. Very busy and popular that evening. Glad we made a reservation
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.
Was kicked out in the middle of our dinner because of private event. Booked through open table and no one at the restaurant ever mentioned they there would be a party.
Incredible food..our favourite meal during our 5 day stay in NYC. Lovely friendly staff and service
It's a nice (small) space, friendly staff & delicious Brazilian food.
I’ve been to Casa many times. The food and service is always outstanding!!! Thank you!
Food is delicious. The staff is very friendly. The decor is inviting and cozy. Only complain is the noise. The tables are so close to each other and the space is so small the it gets noisy. People have to talk loud to be heard which can be annoying.
Decent food with an array of authentic Brazilian dishes not found at the many bland and tourist-oriented churrascarias that dot Midtown. But unless you're trying to underline your enthousiasm for someone by expending unnecessary amounts of money for relatively unimpressive quality, you'd be better off wandering to 36th Ave in Astoria for a truly authentic experience.
The food is always consistent. The best Caipirinha n Feijoada.
This has been one of my favorites having lived in Brazil in the past. This time it felt like the service and definitely the food had gone down hill. The starters, which are usually the highlight, were of a lower quality than in the past, and they got two out of the three orders wrong. So disappointed!
Casa is my go to restaurant when I am in NYC. Authentic Brazilian dishes. Fabulous capirinhas. Excellent service. Truly a gem. Kudos to Jupira & staff.
Amazing food; great service.
Never disappoints. Service was on point, as always. Obrigada Jupira and whole team. Hands down best Brazilian restaurant in town.
The food there is really authentic and delicious. Although the cheese bread portions are too small, which makes the place a bit less affordable than i would have liked.
Won’t be back
Main course chicken and steak dishes just okay
Chicken had small bones
Chefs special appetizer was a baked selection of three “ crocatina”s(?sp). All dough and pasty and dry. Not good
We loved the food. Cocktails were okay - not great. Service was fab. Small restaurant. Beautiful settings. It was beautiful to look at the snow falling outside.
Good option of Brazilian food in Manhattan, but overpriced.
Our first authentic Brazilian food experience and it was WONDERFUL! Lots of great menu choices across the spectrum -- amazing soups, salads, apps and mains. I had the Strogonoff and my wife had the Brazilian Steak. Both were out-of-this-world delicious. The restaurant itself is warm and charming and the service is outstanding. The location on Bedford is so quiet and cozy it felt like we were on a movie set -- perfect for a special date. We can easily say this is now one of our top two or three favorite restaurants in NYC. We look forward to going back to try more of their tasty dishes -- especially with friends we want to impress!
Excellent location half block from Primary Stages at the Cherry Lane Theater. Food very good. Cocktails very good. Service very attentive and wait staff well informed.
I threw a surprise party for my husband here - it’s his favorite - and they were so incredibly amazing from start to finish! Thank you!!
Came here with another couple - one of which is Brazilian and eats Brazilian food with his family. He ordered for us in Portuguese and we enjoyed an amazing feast family-style!
