Amazing service. We went on a weird day where there was previously bad weather and deliveries didn't make it in... read more for the week. Half the menu was even sold out but we had a wonderful experience nonetheless. Definitely hope to make it back again for the full experience. read less2/14/2018Gina A.
Firstly, I love the warm and cozy ambiance of this place and the neighborhood it's tucked in; a completely different... read more vibe from the hustle and bustle of NYC. Love the BYOB option and I was really into Lambic at that time, so I brought a bottle or two to meet with friends.We ordered the blood sausage, prawns (delish!), and snails. Highly recommend 🙂 read less2/07/2018

Had a great experience at Broa.. I have thankfully eaten at many amazing restaurants being an event planner and Broa... read more lived up to my high standards.The decor and set up is very cool, hipster but not too much. The menu on the chalkboard gives an authenticity to the chef and the restaurants philosophy... Each dish was very tasty and had unique elements that I've never experienced. The portions are sharing and we're plentiful for my group.Any other great element is it's a BYOB.I'm definitely going to be back and bring friends! read less11/02/2017Brian M.
Came to Broa on a whim and I'm glad we did. Originally we were supposed to be dining at the... read more pizza place a block away, but the wait was almost 2 hours. So with a quick search through Yelp we stumbled upon this place. Broa is a BYOB restaurant serving up Portuguese style cuisines. Atmosphere: We actually walked past the place thinking this place was at ground floor. It's actually located a few steps down into the building sub ground floor. As you walk in the menu is on the left behind where you open the door. It's on a chalk board wall. They list all the items that their cooking for the day. The place feels as if you stepped into an old style home, but with an open kitchen. The setup of the place was very trendy and very romantic. Great for a date.Service: The server that greeted us, I'm guessing the owner was well-mannered. Introduced us to the menu and gave suggestions. Spoke Portuguese which is a plus because who really wants to dine-in at a place that isn't authentic. Food: Amazing food. Small plates and easy to share between 3 people. Tapas style. The portion was just enough for 3. Flavors were amazing and the presentation was on point. Had the shrimp, mussels, chorizo and the stroganoff. The chorizo came on a open flame plate for crusting. For dessert they had authentic Portuguese style egg tarts which is hard to make. Definitely left full and definitely recommend the egg tarts. Will be returning soon. read less11/06/2018

Broa should mean "great place to eat"...We went to Broa on Saturday night, my party had grown from 6 to... read more 12. I knew we had a challenge...The staff was very accommodating, albeit we had to wait longer than expected, but they were able to sit us at their large table situated in the middle of the dining room. The wait was worth the while. We had a great time, food was plenty, service was phenomenal... when we came to realized the place was empty they had closed and never told us a word. They let us be and when the time was right they bough dessert and coffee. I will patronize this locale over and over again and will continue to come with good friends and family for a good time. I have to thank the staff you guys were great... read less6/18/2018Huw P.
Amazing place, we have only eaten here once but it was inspiringWe went on a Saturday night, you can't book... read more but only had to wait 10 mins, we sat at the community table, everyone was cool aside from the one guy on the end who took up two seats and looked like he spent too much time in the gym !!!We had a black bean salad that was served in a kilner jar very simple it excellent tasting, I made it last night at home I was so impressed.Then we had a sausage that came in a flaming ceramic dish that was smoked and very porky, we also had octopus that was awesome too.The ambiance was very European with people talking to each other at the communal table, it's a BYO there is a liquor store one block down that gives 10% off FYI Conclusion go for great food and atmosphere at reasonable prices read less4/15/2018
