Cafe Brazil is the most romantic restaurant in Denver! – We go to Cafe Brazil almost every other Friday and we can't get enough of it, it is intimate, cozy & fun!!! Their food is amaizing, I don't think there is anything else like this in Denver. Great vine selection.
We love the service, atmosphere, people. Their waiters are very nice. We love Geno, he is our favorite - very smart, friendly, professional, always will go an extra mile to make your night special!
Great restaurant - Cafe Brazil! – THIS RESTAURANT CAME HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. WE LOVED THIS PLACE! GREAT FOOD, GREAT PEOPLE. HIGH-END, BUT VERY FRIENDLY AND WELCOMING!
DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS PLACE....!!!!! – We arrived to this restaurant and since we did not have reservation, they indciated that since they had a cancelation they were able to seat us in 1:15 minutes -crazyyyyy!!! they told us to go ahead and wait in the bar area, which they don't even have bar stools/chairs, please if you cann't afford a better service to your customer, close your doors!!!!!
After this experience I will never attempt to try this place, its not wurse my time or my money.
Great Food, Great Service – I've read some of the other reviews and feel the negative ones are pretentious drivel. If you're a stickler for service, then you'll go when the crowds aren't so thick, which is what I did. Also, Brazil is a very large country, so anyone stating that the cuisine at Cafe Brazil is not authentic must surely have eaten everywhere in Brazil (get over yourself)! I couldn't have designed a better restaurant experience. The food was fabulous and the service was excellent. I also appreciate the fact that they haven't spent a lot of money on decore. To me that means they're spending their money on the right stuff---the food and the servers. In the end, that's all that really matters. Good job, Cafe Brazil!
I felt like I had gone to an EVENT and was so sad to leave! – Oh - My - Gosh - I thought I had died and gone to heaven. When I walked in I instantly hooked into the beat of "Bate Forte o Tambor " - authentic Brazilian music. I was dancing while I was shown to my table. Be sure to reserve well in advance. I was told I would have to eat in the bar when I reserved, but they made a place for me in the main room when I came. I was literally dancing in my seat while waiting for my menu. The energy here is electric! Cool! Hip! All the waiters serve with a very happy smile and high energy. They have 4 high quality speakers placed around the room, and while they didn't dominate the conversation, the music created the hypnotic effect of feeling you are on a sidewalk cafe/restaurant in Copacabana, with the Atlantic ocean waves crashing on the shore across the street. I had the Moqueca de Peixe and it was a PERFECT 10! Did I say it was perfect? It was DELECTABLE!!! While I was waiting for my food I made a trip to the rest room. During that time, my soup had arrived. When I got back to the table, my soup had been covered with a plate to keep it warm, and my napkin had been artfully rolled into a scroll and draped across the top plate. Let me tell you, this is the best continental service that is RARE to find in America. The service is beyond what we are used to seeing here, and is at the caliber of what we would only see in a 5 star restaurant. But this place IS laid back, so it's not intimidating service. Expect the best of the best here. It's a great place for a second date, edgy, fun, cool. There were plenty of people in there in their 50's as well as some in their 20's and 30's. I just can't say enough good things about this place! I want to go back weekly. When it was time to go, I was actually sad to leave. Walking out to the parking lot, I had that same immensity of feeling that one has after seeing a great play, or having been to a great symphony, that you were totally mesmerized and taken over by some form of art. That's Cafe Brazil!
This is a wonderful spot for a romantic date or a business meeting (I've done both). The service is great, with just about everyone who works there stopping by your table throughout the night. The food is delicious, tends to be on the spicy side, so consider yourself warned. Your meal is presented as artwork, just beautiful. I was there last time with a large group and everyone had a different entree... all were delicious. You won't be disappointed.
Well worth the price – I was sorry to read that LuvDenvFood had such a disappointing experience. Perhaps requesting the table you'd like vs. being unhappy with what you're given would've worked. Please try again, their service is almost always spot on (I've never, ever had the experience you did). I wish they'd open for lunch - they are pricey and it would give people the opportunity to try the cuisine without such a monetary commitment. That said, the food here is absolutely exquisite. I've tried almost everything on the menu and have yet to find a loser. You just can't beat fresh, fresh, fresh!
Overhyped and priced...put your nose up – Okay, so I thought Brazil was supposed to be layed back and jovial. Not so.
We walked in, looked to the left, and there were two tables with people at them, the remaining 18-20 tables were empty. So where are we INSTRUCTED to go? The bar area...did i mention we had an infant with us! Then, he tried to seat us at a two seat table, yes there were three of us, and this was also right next to the door.
Disappointing, mainly because I had high expectations and the service was almost irresponsible as they had their framed "5280" etc posted. Plus, the nerve to serv $20+ entrees while you sit on plastic lawn furniture? I'll pass. Too many fantastic options in Denver with just as good food, but outstanding service, and very well priced.
Overall, the place was stuffy, pushy, dismissive and just plain snobby. Really? Are YOU doing me a favor by seating me and allowing me to eat there. No thanks. We left after the water was served and the liquor menu was shoved in our face and BTW the menu was not that impressive. Try another restaurant.
One word: Fantastic – I have to say that I was truly surprised and impressed by this restaurant. The food was amazing from start to finish. I have to rave particularly about my fiance's dish... a Chilean white fish with a Mango/Pineapple/Macadamia Nut butter. It was one of the best things I have ever tried in my life. This restauarnt is a hidden gem and in different cities the lines would be out the door.
Great little neighborhood restaurant – I love the food and the drinks are especially tasty, good for a girls night dinner or a nice romantic dinner for two.
