"I went with my boyfriend and my best friend and we had a lovely time. there was live music by a well-known Colombian musician, Nilko Andreas, who played Latin music and livened up the ambiance. The combination of great music and good food was perfect! Also the service was wonderful and food delicious!! Will definitely return!"

"Wonderful tastes of Brazil, with fine casual cuisine choices. We enjoyed the mixed seafood stew, with all the fixings. Keep it mild, or spice it up, your choice!
Excellent bar offerings - especially flavorful or classic mojitos. Ver y special happy hour & fab brunch too!

"We should up for a 9:30pm OpenTable reservation and the manager clearly did not realize he had a reservation booked. There were no tables. We were not seated until 45 minutes later and that was only because we saw a table being cleared and insisted upon taking it. Then, we were not waited upon for another 15 minutes. Unfortunately, the food was not as good as I remember it being 8 years ago when I last visited. On a positive note, the band playing Gypsy Kings was fantastic and the manager comped our drinks which was a nice gesture."

"I went to Esperanto with another 3 friends on a Saturday night, which also happened to be salsa night (with live music!). We had booked a table for 7, so the music had just started by the time we left, but I was definitely ready to stay!
The food was really good, more on the hearty and filling side with the dishes we tried, flavorful, and with plenty of different choices on offer to satisfy everyone (one of our party is a vegetarian, and another is 100% carnivore).
The cocktails were great, and while I didn't drink wine, the friends who did were happy with their choice.
The service was excellent; attentive but not overbearing, friendly, and just generally on point.

"We booked the table 5 days before. We had the worst table. Close to the door and the cold and close to the band who was very noisy (Mexican music in a Brazilian restaurant).
The waitress told us at the beginning that the band will move to the back of the restaurant after 30 minutes which was not true. The manager was not helpful and decided to bring the check before deserts because we complained. Really disappointed. I used to go there often, but i will not come back. We went today to celebrate a birthday, but we couldn't order a cake. They decided by bringing the check before that it was better for us to leave. Very bad management and very noisy. Avoid this restaurant.

"Great space for a tasty meal, brunch or late bite. Mellow atmosphere, often live Brazilian music, and friendly bar area. Menu has become more compact recently, yet offerings are still tasty. More variety would be appreciated: even in fall/winter, non-beef eaters cannot thrive on stew alone:-)"

"Our waitress was so friendly and helpful with the menu she was down to earth as well... the food was amazing! i just wish the happy hour drinks were a lil bit bigger. My friends and I are definitely coming back love the ambiance it got a lil dark where we couldn't see the menu but we asked the waitress to turn the lights up and she did. We are coming from Long Island and are willing to travel there that says a lot."
