Thinking of taking a few friends to this portuguese restaurant. It has received rave reviews from critics but what do the chowhounds think?
We were there Friday evening.
Most of the dishes we tried were very good, but not all.
Favorites: gizzards, grilled sardines, turnovers, coconut tart for dessert.
One of our entrees was the lamb shoulder (a special that evening) and the meat was very dry - I couldn't even finish my portion.
I am sorry we didn't get to try one of the salads; I think I would have been happier.
Noise level was fine earlier, but it did get quite loud as the evening progressed. This doesn't bother everyone, but we like to be able to talk to our tablemates.
We will return, but will try for a weekday or early. More "we'll get back here" than "can't wait to get back."
Sorry to be the dissenter. Went twice, both times while the owners were lovely and the bread was super, with rare exception, the food was very, very, very heavy and fat added often as cream. No one could eat more than a few forkfuls of a dish. Cod was great but two forkfuls was all that was needed. We ordered too much, but 80% of food was left. Of the two trips and 9 people total, no one said they would return. This is why Laban writes reviews, not me.
