Best food been going for about 10 years or more. The manager/ owner is so pleasant. I take everyone from work here as well as personal.
My husband and I had an early, post-matinee dinner here last Sunday. It was a calming atmosphere and the food was superb. Highly recommend the shrimp in yucca sauce, and the mixed appetizers were also delicious. We look forward to returning.
Wow. Que maravilha! I have eaten at most, if not all of the non-churrascaria Brazilian restaurants in NYC. Hands down, Emporium Brasil is the best.
The food is amazing. Having lived in Brazil and having been married to a Brazilian for over 31 years, I feel I have a pretty good barometer to judge. The shrimp empadinhas were way too good and led me to overindulge. The fish moqueca was right out of the winding streets of the Pelourinho in Salvador.
As wonderful as the food was, the staff were even better. The manager Bruno was kind, open, and attentive to all that was happening in the place. The bartender Gabriel made perfect (and strong) caipirinhas and provided great conversation.
My experience helped assuage a bit of the saudade that I always feel for Brasil. If you want an introduction to the cuisine of Brazil or want to return to those wonderful flavors, this is the place for you.
The staff is outstanding and the food in my husbands’ words: Best Brazilian restaurant he has ever been to!
Great location, great food, great prices, great service. One caveat: wines have a noticeable markup so you might prefer a different drink (there's a large selection)
Great meal can’t wait to go back
Food is consistently delicious and service is always fantastic. Might explain why we've kept going for 30 years. Also helps that the better half of this couple is Brasilian. Gives her a feeling of being "home".
I've done many business lunches and dinners at Emporium Brazil over the years, and my guests and I have always liked this place and its food. I've also visited the place with my family and we all have always had a good time over food and drinks. Good service couple with good food and drinks!
Visited on a late Sunday afternoon and place was empty, though a large group arrive shortly after we were seated. Service was ok though not overly friendly, though we did have to hunt down a waiter most times we needed service, perhaps they were occupied with the large group. Food offered is typical Brazilian cuisine but as someone who has visited Brazil many times, felt the food was just ok, nothing special; certainly not what I remembered in my countless visits to restaurants in Brazil. As I've walked past this establishment multiple times in the past believe can check it off the list and wish them well.
I planned a small birthday dinner for my best friend here. The price range was fantastic, you could get a nice steak or get something a little less expensive but all the food was delicious. The atmosphere was quiet yet lively. They brought a cute little dessert for her at the end for her birthday at no extra cost. The waiter was knowledgeable about the food and Brazilian culture. This was the best Brazilian restaurant I've ever been to. There was also a lot of street parking :)
A supreme exoerience eating one of the most tasty picana i have ever eaten !! Don t Miss it !!
Good food, good service, good atmosphere overall a good experience
One of my favorite places. Courteous and friendly maître d' and waiters and I always enjoy the caipirinhas and food. Beware though, the cheesy bread is deadly good.
There's a reason we've been coming here for like 30 years. Food is consistently fantastic, service is always attentive and friendly, and my wife gets to have an opportunity to feel like she is back in Brasil.
Celebration of job promotions
Service was great food was just perfect portion and the price was not bad value to quality.
I've been to this place a few times and I love it! It's conveniently located if you're seeing a show and they're always quick about getting your food out. The prices are incredibly reasonable and the food is delicious
Delicious food, plenty of healthy alternatives and attentive staff. I would definitely come back
Excellent service and food. Will recommend to my friends.
Fantastic food (steaks were just super delicious) and great service! Definitely recommending!
Three of us went here on Saturday for the feijoada buffet style. As usual it was delicious. Dona Samira does a great job in kitchen as always, that's why we keep coming back. The crew upfront is very attentive and friendly. Great place!!
Absolutely recommendable. Good value, great service. delicious food. Thanks.
The chicken was cooked very well. The Cheif special was excellent. The host and waiters were very professional and nice. I would go back soon.
My grilled salmon was cooked to order and fresh. Quinoa salad was not heavily salted. Good options for vegan,
Great food and friendly service. The acorn squash with hearts of palm and shrimp was delicious. So was the steak with toasted yucca flour and a great vinaigrette and fries. My partner thought the black beans were the best he had ever had. Excellent value as well.
The staff was so attentative. Food and drinks were amazing. I love the passion fruit caipiriniha and meat cooked perfectly.
Good Brazilian good in NY. Polite staff good ambience
Love Emporium the staff is super friendly. The happy hour at the bar is amazing. I’ve been to Brazil over 15 times and the food is authentic. The coxinhas are my favorite. All the food is super fresh If you are going to the theater leave time sq and go here
I go here about 5 times a year can’t wait to go back
Amazing service and delicious food! Definitely recommend.
Good food . Good service..
This is my all-time favorite place in midtown Manhattan. It is a comfort to be here. No loud music, no TV, just the subliminal clatter of dishes and conversation. It is an "adult" place, mellow, where you can have a conversation, with the kind of atmosphere rapidly disappearing in Manhattan. The specials are always worth the price, although I usually choose something from the menu. Menu is good, although I am person who generally chooses the same thing.
Great Brazilian food!!! Best rice and beans in town.
Great food and great atmosphere!
Brazilian specialties for me and perfect steak dinner for my companion that did not know Brazilian food. She tried Coxinhas of chicken and pastel and loved them. Perfect service and friendly staff. Made it perfect.
Food was delicious and the service was very good, nice people, good service. The only thing I would recommend is to include more Vegan plates because they only have 2. The rest was very fine and enjoyed eating there
Awesome service form the staff and remarkable food!
Excellent food. Our server, Gerardo (Geraldo?) was so friendly and helpful. My husband is from Brazil and loved the food and service.
Thoroughly excellent restaurant. Attentive staff, good value, great food. We really enjoyed everything we ordered from the diverse menu.
The experience here was amazing! Food was delicious. Our waiter was very attentive and personal. Will definitely come again!
Food was absolutely delicious and nice sized portions !
