Great service and nice food selection
Servers were not as attentive. Had to chase them down to take order.
My fav Brazilian restaurant in nyc for sure! Love the food and the service
Atendimento otimo, muito atenciosos todos.
Simply a great place with great food, service, and ambience.
Great food!! Best service!!!
Great steak, friendly waiter
Food and service were excellent. Great place to grab a quick buy excellent meal before going to Radio City a few blocks away.
Food and drinks were absolutely delicious and the service was stellar! It is definitely a place I would return to. Best feijoada ever!!
Well made and excellent service. The portions were very healthy, but everything was delicious.
Although the food and service were good, nothing upsets me more than a bait and switch scheme. The menu prices posted on their website were significantly less expensive than the prices on the menus we received once seated. Shame! Furthermore, their wine list was not up to date as it still listed my selection which they did not have. Naturally, my selection was decently priced and I had to choose a more expensive alternative. Another annoyance is the way they calculate the tip. You enter the percentage and the tip is calculated on the entire amount including tax. Although not a big deal, it is greedy and leaves me with a sour taste.
Amazing service with quality food. Love this place
We dined for Mother’s Day and really enjoyed the food. We have a 1.5 year old which they were happy to accommodate with a high chair, spoon, extra plate etc. everyone was very kind. The door was open so our fries got cold fast but I do appreciate based on the pandemic the safe environment they created. We will definitely be back!
Nice dinner, good service. Overall enjoyable meal. Seafood selections very good.
First time here and def won’t be the last. Food was delish, and staff were all lovely!
I’ve been going to Emporium for several years and have never been disappointed. The best “feijoada” in town. The “picanha” is a must try. The “pastel de carne and queijo” is to die for. Desserts are delicious. You must try the flan and the brigadeiro. Besides, service is impeccable!
Amazing and delicious food! Incredible service! The waiter was one of the sweetest people, I’ve ever met! Loved this place! Will definitely be going back soon!
Great place for fabulous food.
Very pleasant dining experience. Highly recommended.
The waiter was very attentive and gave us great advice on what to order. The food and drinks were delicious. We ordered the empanadas sampler, branzino, steak, and cachaka.
Great food, Great service. The portions were fitting. You must try the desserts....
It was amazing and the food was great.
Went on a Thursday night. Pretty quite. Food was excellent, drinks were excellent, and the service was outstanding. Will return when I come back to the city.
Drinks were amazing! Appetizers were ok. Calamari seemed as though it was heated up out of the freezer. Shrimp was good. My steak was nothing special. The food wasnt hot, just luke warm. Not sure if it was because we had the last reservation for night and the chef wanted to go home? I would definitely go back for drinks, not so sure about the food. Service was good too.
The place has great ambience with very good food
From the food and atmosphere to the staff, everything is EXCELLENT!
This is a quaint restaurant with authentic Brazilian cuisine. My favorite is the Foijada. Highly recommend it.
We had a beautiful pre-theater dinner here, drinks first at the bar with the personable Rio bartender. The menu and presentation was unusual and fun. An easy walk to east-of-Times Square theaters.
Food is always excellent and service is always spectacular!
The staff was very accommodating. They addressed us by name and treated us with great respect. We enjoyed the food options and loved what we ate. I would go back again and would recommend to anyone going to midtown for dinner.
You made getting the table easy and the place outdid itself! The staff made the experience wonderful! They were attentive from the start to finish! The food was excellent.... the taste, the presentation and the serving were all great. Would recommend it to others and did this morning. Great time and wonderful food. The dessert was probably a best highlight!
It was a last minute pleasurable surprise - Great food!
We had an early reservation on Valentine’s Day for dinner before a show. Dinner was about two hours, so 5:30PM was perfect to make the 8PM show. We had really great drinks first - I recommend the Manhattan. For dinner we weren’t too adventurous, but everything was to perfection. Highly recommend the salmon and the beef stroganoff. The stroganoff has a Brazilian twist for sure, and it was with rice (not noodles). We just wanted a nice, relaxing place to chat for a couple hours, and this was perfect. The service was excellent - made recommendations when we asked, totally didn’t hurry us, very friendly. It was someone else’s birthday, and they even sang!
Our server Roger was excellent in seeing that we got the most out of our dining experience. From friendly timely service, recommendations and pairing our selections. We have a new favorite place in the city, the food was so flavorful.
Extremely nice waiter! Great round table. Very good food.
It was very good!! The food was amazing
All the staff is very cute, polite and simpatic. Congratulations
As brasilian who not only knows what really good authentic brasilian food tastes like but also, but over the years also had a really good share of "just ok" food, we were extremely disappointed with Emporium Brasil.
For a restaurant who claims the "Picanha" is their specialty what we had was a piece of grilled meat that was far from what Picanha supposed to be. Don't take my word, Google picanha photo and compare to their menu.
Know that Picanha is the smaller thick fat captop layer of muscle over the rump area closest to the skin, because it’s not a muscle that gets much use during the cow’s life, so it remains very tender and covered with a thick layer of fat.
Know to many as Queen of beef cuts, real Picanha gets all the flavor from being grilled with the fat cap, (this cap should never be trimmed away) and of course the rock salt that gives some of the rich flavor.
None of these are present on Emporium Brasil plate. Sides server with it (well a little to none) I managed to get a desert spoon of black beans out of the small bowl, everything else was beans water. Rice was cold and had no flavor.
Menu says it is served with "vinaigrette sauce, toasted yucca flour and fries" never got either one.
Baked Codfish also left a lot to be desired, unflavored, unseasoned and no salt, served with an olive sized potato.
Their burger was so hard and dry was not edible to the point 80% of it was left in the plate.
With 4 people in our party, 3 asked for Diet Coke which arrived completely flat, when we asked for regular coke we were told regular coke was the same way but they could serve us a natural juice????
No for the positive. we had 3 different deserts all of them were very good.
Amazing , I can’t wait to come back !
