    I chose Samba Kitchen to celebrate my birthday... what a disappointment. I purposely chose this place for the live samba music during brunch and turns out they only provide live music on Sundays. The brunch menu was very limited and very basic. No wow factor there. My girlfriend and I were so upset we actually went in search of another brunch spot to eat all over again! I can only think of one word to describe our experience - basic.

    Outstanding food in a non-pretentious, friendly restaurant. Wished we lived in NYC so we could go back and back.

    Nothing amazing. The Brazilian cheese bread was undercooked, I could taste the yucca flour in my mouth, and the moqueca was a very small portion for the price. Drinks were ok. Service was ok. It is very loud. Will not come back.

    I've known the owner since his bus boy days at Ipanema over 13 years ago, and I'm happy he opened his own restaurant about 3 years ago. What many people might not know is that he went into a partnership with the former (and original) chef from Ipanema which lends itself to a fantastic menu, and one you can rely on being of the best quality. Great food, great service, and I've taken friends and family here for years. Their Sunday brunch is to DIE FOR, and the live Brazilian music really sets this place apart from all the others on 46th Street/Little Brazil.

    Pretty authentic Brazilian. The Mocequa was spot on and my picky teenage dinner guest "loved" the yucca fries.

    Had an exceptional lunch here with a friend who was visiting town. The food was wonderful. The service was warm and friendly. Lunch crowd was small so it was very quiet.

    Server was great and very attentive. One of the diners has major food allergies and the waitress made sure she had all basis covered.
