I had a piece of cake and I felt really sick to my stomach and hair was in my food, I receive my food first before the appetizer, also the beans smelled like feet. I didn't know if I was eating rubber or chicken. I had a horrible time!!!

I work a few blocks away and recently after work I discovered my new favorite spot . The prices are more than reasonable (less than $7 dollars for a caipirinha) and dinner under $20 but beyond the prices the food is very authentic and really good. I have been to a few other brazilian restaurants in the city ( the same block mostly) and in Queens where I live but this is my favorite. Everyone the work there is Brazilian and the bartender is really nice. You have to try it whether it is for a sit down dinner with a date ( I took my sister the other day) or just a quick bite and a drink at the bar I highly recommended it.

Pros: Best Caipirihna in New York by far!!!

My all around fav restaurant in the city. While not quite the hottest talked about place in NY, it's tried and true. I've eaten there at least 10 times, and it never disappoints. From beginning to end, all dishes are fab! You can't say that about a lot of "in" places. The prices are not cheap, but all in all, fabulous consistent food and well worth it.

My wife and I visited Ipanema recently after a theater matinee. We arrived early and found the restaurant uncrowded. We were promptly seated (we had reservations) at a table between the waterfall wall and large tropical jungle murals. The waiter was attentive and knowledgable. The food was excellent. The churrasco mixto included a variety of grilled meats that were tasty and well cooked. The coconut shrimp was served in a rich, sweet broth inside a coconut. Very tasty and nicely presented. Caipirinahs were potent and added to the authenticity of the experience. Dessert was the least impressive. The flan was good but no more than average. Prices were reasonable and portion sizes above average. Dining was leisurely and we did not feel at all rushed. Overall a great experience that I would recommend to anyone wanting to try something a bit different.

Pros: Great food, authenic cuisine, good service

Cons: Dessert could have been better.

The food is delicious! The lamb chops were mouth watering....literally they melted in my mouth. Their chicken dishes were marinated perfectly. The service was very attentive. This is a tourist (pre-theatre) spot so the decor is average but nice.

A nice list of foods and strong caiprihinas make for a pleasant dinner. The dessert cart gets your mouth watering. Stop by if you need a change of pace from the regular stuff.

Great Place, Great food! Superb drinks courtesy of Leo! Thanks Alfredo and Carlos for this place! A heaven for people who work in the area. Bife Acebolado is my favorite dish. If you want good steak at a great price (Brazilain Style) this is the place to go.

To those who doesn't experiment with foods from foreign countries - do not go in there. To those who who knows what real food means - you are welcomed! Brasil is beautiful country with happy people and awesome food. You can find it on W 46 street in Manhattan. I live in Seattle and we have only one Brasilian restaurant. Lucky New Yorkers have a lot. Ipanema is one of the best.

We felt like the restaurant was working hardest on getting us out instead of making us food. Ironically, there were 6 other tables behind us in eating, so the rush made no sense. The food was very rich, and ingenuitous (one dish served in a hollowed coconut), but it sat heavy in the stomach.
The waiter was nice, but the busboys were a pain. Don't expect your water glass refilled. This Brazilian restaurant has no Brazilian beer-- Portugese is closest. There's GOT to be a better place that isn't Plataforma-style.

I am brazilian and I love the food here! There vatapa and moqueca are amazing! the service was extremely friendly-and i lovee that they were brazilian so I could speak portuguese with them. The only thing was their farofa was mediocre, but then again I've never had farofa in a restaurant I was a fan of, my mom's is too good! Overally I highly recommend this restaurant!

I lived in Brazil for 2 years and enjoyed having the experience of going to Ipanema for dinner. I could not believe how much food they brought out to the table! I could not eat it all there was so much! The servers were great - plus it gave me a chance to catch up on my Portuguese. Great place!

I went to this restaurant for lunch with a few friends. The service was slow, and the food was mediocre for the price is about $15 and up for an entree. None of us were particularly exicited about our meal, I had the roasted chicken dish, and they had the steak. I think you can find a better restaurant for the same price range.

This was my first experience with Brazilian and for the most part I liked it. Our servers were really friendly and chatted it up with us all evening. The atmosphere was very relaxed, almost like you were a guest in their home. Although this restaurant is small, it accommodated us and we were a large group. The food was good and everyone seemed pleased with their selection...We were all fans of the fried sausage...Yum, yum!

Ipanema feels defitently like you are in Brasil--with traditional Brasilian food and charm. George is an amazing waiter like a father. The owner is equally nice. The cater to your every whim and treat you like family.

Ipanema is a great place; my boyfriend, who is brazilian, had certainly appreciated my choice of the restaurant to dine in, for he even sent me flowers at work the morning after the dinner! He definitely loved the food :). Shrimps in coconut milk are delicious, though if you're not "the real" brazilian you probably will be full with less than a half of the dish... We will surely go back to Ipanema: me-for more caipirinhas, my boyfriend-for a friendly chat with waiters, in portugeese!

I found it on Citysearch.com and now can't say enough. Ipanema is a 10! The food is not only delicious but they give you SO much! You've got to have the Porteagues sausage. Their Pahela is so packed with seafood that no one fought to have some lobster.

The CAIPIRINHAs are great, the food delicious, and the service friendly and efficient. Not being to familiar with the area I found it a little hard to find but it was a true find. I had some shrimp in coconut milk that was served in a hollowed out coconut, which was very tasty. My wife and I had a few too many Caipirinhas which made the walk to Madison Square Garden a challenge.

If you have time for only one Brazilian meal in Manhattan, head past Fifth Avenue to the block known as Little Brazil, and Ipanema may offer the best all-round satisfaction. Decor is bland, but not the thrilling and filling feijoada (a…
