"This was my second trip to Samba. Both were large group affairs of greater than 12 people. The place has an authenticity that is rare in the Twin Cities area. The menu is latin inspired but has one whole page devoted to Brazilian dishes that you have never heard of and will like. Something for everyone but it is definitely meat-forward. Its not a meat comafest like the Brazilian chain restuarants but is more family style in portions. Price is reasonable, owner is a character, and takes care of large groups himself. There is a little market available in the restaurant. Great coffee, chocolate and hot sauces. It is a local favorite, and is not busy on Saturday or weeknights. Friday night is very busy though. I hosted our monthly dinner group event (pre-dinner was at LTD brewing 2 blocks east) and everyone loved it, thanks to the staff at Samba for making our event tons of fun."

"Great food. Love that it's family run. Service is slow but the food is so good it's well worth it. Also, the owner is so personable that I'll sacrifice the serviced or the overall experience. We will definitely be going back."

"We visited this restaurant years ago and was not sure it was still around. We walked from the theatre and were pleasantly surprised to see it open and full of customers. The food is traditional Brazilian and huge portions. AS it was a Tuesday night and cold outside they had not expected the amount of people so service was slow but the place is so comfortable it didn't matter. WE will go back but definitely split an order there was way too much."

"We wanted something new for Valentine's Day supper, and Samba met all our wants. The food was different than we'd had but still tasty. We like spicy and some of these dishes were great. The house-made "salsa" was very hot and very good as a side condiment (ask for it)."

"My wife and I went here for an early day-before Valentine's Day. It was our first visit and we've never had Brazillian food before so weren't sure what to expect. While the service started a bit slow, once we got going our server was great. Very helpful in what to choose, a very fun and attentive guy. The food was delicious. We went with the traditional dishes (when in Rome) and were very impressed with the quality, the presentation, you name it. This is not a fancy place so don't expect a lot of ambiance. But if you're looking for really delicious food that can take you away from all the usual Mexican, Italian, etc., give them a try. (And a very good place for the GF crowd.) We'll definitely be back!"

"Took my wife for valentines. First good thing I had reservations. All tables were full and people had to be sent away because of that. Amazing food. Amazing detail service. Became a favorite right away. Definitely a must go."

"We decided to go to dinner with some friends who hadn't been here yet. So delicious! My favorite is the shepherd's-pie-like-Escondidinho. My husband really enjoyed his trilogy of meats, and the fries were great! Our friends also liked the cheesy-meaty-mashed-manioc, and the pork atolado. The fried bananas with cinnamon ice cream were delicious! My husband got the cheese and caramel dessert: there was nothing wrong with it, but it was way too...non-American-sweet for us, for dessert. The chocolate cake was great!"

"My wife and I are foodies--healthy foodies at that... and Samba did not disappoint. We loved the family run/close-knit ambiance. It was fast, fun, friendly and great food. A winning combination. We are looking forward to making this a frequent destination."
