Enjoyed a coconut based shrimp special that was outstanding. Subtle flavors. Pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommended.

The food here is so authentic it is hard to believe. We tried what the restaurant terms "Brazil's National Dish". It was so wonderfully savory. The rich broth contained pork spare ribs, beef, and sausage. We mixed in the rice, collard greens, and a bread crumble for an amazing taste! Our salads had a tangy dressing. The desserts were simply... More

We have been here several times over the years and always enjoy it so much. We took our family for Yemanja Night the other night and it was the best ever! They had a special with a most delicious crab cake that could have been a meal in itself for an appetizer. Then you could have clam chowder or a... More

I've been wanting to visit Yemanja for a long time and finally got the opportunity today. My friend and I arrived around 4:20, but they don't open until 5pm. We saw a woman through the window and asked if we could come inside to wait, since my friend uses a walker. The waitress very kindly came out and let us... More

Hard working owners, they have shown a loyalty hard to find in ethnically / specialty restaurants like this. The ambiance reflects the Brazilian culture and it is a very pleasant restaurant.

I started going here when I purchased a Groupon several years ago. I have been back many times since. The food is always amazing. Their specialty drinks are also delicious made from Brazilian rum. Very quaint area. Service is also very good.

Restaurant was selected as 1 of brother-in-law's favorites for a surprise party. Set up worked well as we were placed in the upstairs alcove out of view from front door. Bar serves most standard fate with the addition of Brazilian favorites including caiparinha, very sweet sugar cane drink, and Guarana, similar to ginger ale as an added soft drink. A... More

We stumbled upon this place when our Plan A fell through, and I am so glad we did! We walked right in and were seated on a Saturday night around 7. Our server was so friendly, and she had on-point suggestions for us as far as food and drinks went. I had sangria, and it wasn't too sweet, which I... More

I went with a Brazilian friend and his family. I was also with my family. Since our arrival, the owner, a beautiful Brazilian lady, was taking care of us.
