Great find, small Brazilian restaurant. We stared with drinks - Caipirinha, which is Brazil's National Drink, which is rum with either lime, passion fruit or coconut cream over ice. Delicious. I had the black bean stew, which was excellent but enough to for two. It's served with rice and even more black beans. Co-worker had steak topped with a fried... More

Dear kckiss, What a great review! So glad you found us and had some of our most traditional dishes. The black bean stew is a Brazilian staple and the egg topped steak a Portuguese favorite. The only thing missing was trying one of our tasty, creamy desserts. May I suggest the flan or house special, both of which are too... More

Very nice menu and dinner. We didn't go for any of the big entrees, but the soups and appetizers were excellent. Service was very attentive and lots more on the menu I would try.

Dear Marj, Awesome review! We are so pleased to read that you enjoyed the mariscada and grilled meats. They are both some of the house favorites. Did you try any of the traditional Brazilian drinks such as caipirinha or our scrumptious​ desserts? Maybe next time. Best wishes, Judite More

Somehow, I missed doing this review in a timely manner but better late than never. Our group of 8 had lunch here before the theater (back in February) and while I can't remember specific details, I remember that everyone was pleased with their meal. It's not easy to please such a diverse group! Food and service were great, prices fair.... More

Pedestrian cooking at Manhattan prices. Mediocre food arrives cold after a 45 minute wait. Tiny amounts of bread provided. If the entrees were $15 I'd consider giving three stars, but at twice that price it's two stars.

My son and husband LOVE a good steak and we were looking for a nice place to eat after the matinee yesterday and this place did not disappoint!

After the Christmas show at Radio City, we were looking for a place to have lunch before we got the train home. We found this restaurant a few minutes walk from Radio City in an area called "Little Brazil". The food was delicious, but not very special. We got the fish and it was cooked perfectly.

Was taken here by friends. Very tasteless food. The steak was no better than what u would grab at a supermarket on sale. Side dishes were ok. Service ok. Atmosphere ok. Not worth a revisit.

I've been to the old Ipanema before, but this was my first visit to the new one (same block). The food is good with a good misture of Brazilian and Portuguese food and matching drinks. The service is also very efficient and staff very nice. I recommend it.

Description
In the heart of Little Brazil street is the famous Ipanema Restaurant, considered to be the best Brazilian restaurant in all of New York City. Ipanema offers a relaxed and contemporary atmosphere complemented by the authentic cuisine our chef has perfected over the past 30 years. While the name Ipanema refers to the famous beach in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil our menu is firmly rooted in the culinary crossover between both Brazil and Portugal. Ipanema's menu combines the timeless history of Portuguese recipes with the zest and vibrancy of Brazilian cuisine, resulting in a one-of-a-kind dining experience. At Ipanema you can immerse yourself in a true Brazilian-Portuguese experience with famous dishes including: Feijoada, Vatapá, Pão de Queijo, Bacalhau Assado, Bitoque Mariscada, and more.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
