"Great place for a portuguese meal. Was very impressed! The caldo verde soup was divine. The bacalhau version I received was incredible. Not greasy. Delicious bacalhau a bras. My cousin had the fresh cod with mashed potatoe puree. Delicious."

"My absolute favorite spot in NYC. Great food/drinks (Vinho Verde!!) but it's really the people there that make it so special. So sad to see it go, we're losing a gem."

"The cave-like interior was illuminated by about 4 watts because "the bartender preffered it that way." We literally couldn't see the food. They had very few of their menu selections and no Port."
