Very nice South American cuisine in a pleasant restaurant. Sound level was fine (during lunch) and service was excellent.
Food was okay, not great. The restaurant was fairly empty, so easy to have a conversation, but no atmosphere to speak of. We would not go back.
My friend and I had a great experience at Ipanema. The food was great, the drinks were great. The staff was attentive. The atmosphere was great. We had a 6pm reservation on a Friday and had no problem making our 8pm show. I'd recommend.
Everything was delicious!! We can’t wait to come back!
Fantastic service and good very good. Nice to try different cuisine in nyc apart from the many Italian restaurants on offer.
Ipanema serves delicious food with great flavors. The decor is somewhat disappointing and the noise level is very high. We had the octopus salad, croquettes, and garlic shrimp. All 3 were really good! Our server was very attentive and friendly.
Fantastic food and superior service! Can’t wait to get back to NYC to eat at Ipanema again!
We had a lovely meal here, reminded us of our visit to Rio.
Awesome dinner great waiter
Endroit très calme et propre. Pas déçus par nos plats. Bon rapport qualité /prix.
Genuine Brazilian food with proper flavors and spices; very well cooked and harmonized. Good service; it is cozy, be aware it is noisy during lunch which brings an energetic vibe.
Friendly staff, quality food and beverage. One of the best restaurants in New York City
Best Brazilian place in NYC , I always go there for happy hour !!!!
Got together with a former coworker. Food and drinks were great. The service was also great. we had a great time. I had the flan for desert and it was good. I love flan.
Staff very attentive, atmosphere pleasant and place was clean. Food was lacking pop of flavor which we expected with Brazilian food. Sea bass was on dry side, steak with crab meat was the best dinner ordered in our group. We didn’t stay for dessert.
Fantastic restaurant - my favorite in NYC. will visit again
Service was great, as the restaurant was not busy when we visited it (12pm) The waiter was also very nice and attentive.
We had a great experience at Ipanema. New to Brazilian food, our server had a lot of wonderful suggestions. None of these disappointed our group from the US & France. Certainly a place to go back to try some of the other menu items.
Food is always good, reasonable prices, friendly customer service.
The meet was overcooked chewy and tasteless.
It was cold. They refused to adjust the temperature
The meat was really good and the service was also really good. However, the side dishes were blend and the restaurant is really noisy.
Great drink menu, excellent food, well prepare. the service is amazing with attention to detail.
Our second time at Ipanema and we will be sure to return. First rate service. Excellent food. Also, I would highly recommend to people with allergy concerns.
The wait staff was exceptional. Our waiter was attentive and very friendly. Food was delicious.
I like this restaurant so much. Food and Service are terrific. And the price is not exorbitant.
Good place. To repeat
Excellent food and staff. I would say it was the best restaurant we ate in whilst in New York
Food was delicious!
great food, creative, good service and wonderful ambience
Everything was absolutely delicious. The staff was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. My only small complaint is that it was a little too warm for me. I am definitely coming back!
Second time dining at Ipanema. The first visit was amazing, food was great, so my friends and I decided to go again. Not sure if they were having a bad night but the food was mediocre. I ordered a steak medium rare and while it came with the proper doneness, it was mushy, grainy and had no chew to it. One of my friends had eaten here before on a separate occasion also agreed that it was amazing the first time she dined here but that tonight's food was lackluster. I want Ipanema to stay a dining option when I'm in the area but this experience has made me doubtful.
Loved the food and the service even more! They are very welcoming and makes you feel right at home! Thanks for an awesome dining experience! Will definitely be back if we find ourselves in the area.
This was my 3rd time here. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. My daughter enjoyed celebrating her 21st birthday here.
Staff were very attentive during our visit. Food was lovely and the portions were very generous. Noisy during our visit but this was due to Brazil playing football being shown on the screen in the restaurant.
We had dinner at Ipanema when we were in town for a Broadway show. The food was well prepared and tasty. The portions were generous. Our waiter was very attentive and helped us understand the various dishes of Brazilian cuisine. The beer he recommended tasted good and went well with the stew. The salad was delicious because of the olive oil and lime dressing. We had cake soaked in milk for dessert, which we enjoyed. The sizzling steak dish was on the salty side and a bit tough. All in all, it was a good experience. (Note: this is the review for Ipanema, not Thalia, which was inadvertently posted to the wrong location.)
Ordered an appetizer that never came out, our server realized this once our entrees were being brought to the table (could see him talking off to the side to one of the bus boys)
Server failed to apologize or even acknowledge that the appetizer never came out, and instead brought us a side of potatoes free of charge. Best part is that we were charged for the appetizer still. I deducted the price of the appetizer from his tip and wrote a note on the receipt. What an embarrassment of a food server
There's a lot dishes to choose from so I asked the waiter to get a better description. I ordered Vatapa and it was delicious! We enjoyed our dinner, a lively and casual place to enjoy a meal.
Awful service and overpriced food. Would not go back
Amazing and very good value for the price. Thank you for this.
Everything Brazilian without the need to leave NYC!
