The Best Place in St. Louis.
I have known this restaurant since its one room humble beginnings. It remains my favorite place in St. Louis. The food is excellent, always great. The creative touch of the owner is everywhere: the food, the walls, and the fireplace mantles. I appreciate too her dedication to helping Benton Park make a comeback. She has been here for > 10 yrs now. Hard to believe. It should not be hidden!.
Come and Find it. You will not regret it. Be sure to ask for the Brazilian Green Drink if you are not opposed to alcohol. It is divine.
Amazing Experience. This was a great little place tucked away in a maze of residential areas. Definitely know where you're going. The food was great and unusual. Our waitress was not only knowledge of the menu, she also had favorite dishes and could make recommendations. We had wonderful appatizers, meals and desert and good company of both the waitress and the hostess.
So Delicious. I was wanting to try Brazilian food, so I found this place on Citysearch. I had one of the Chicken specials, and it was to die for! Not only was the food amazing, but the atmosphere is very cozy, with cute decor and music you just want to dance to. The wait staff was extremely friendly, and the place wasn't crowded at all! A must try!
good date place.
been here on a couple of occasions, both informal, and both times was pleasantly surprised by the service, food and ambiance. location is soso, make sure to lock your car, tho inside, you really feel like you're in another place. decor is original and menu is compact yet flavorful. a bit pricey for an average meal, works great for a date, friendly get together, happy hour, office party, etc.
the owner is a wonderful pleasant woman who's about to become a Mama. her influence is seen everywhere in the restaurant.
favorite thing on the menu is appetizer, the jacama fries. the curry dip that is served with is out of this world.
A bit of Brazil in the city..
Tucked away in the Benton Park neighborhood, Yemanja is a secret that shouldn't be kept. The dazzling facade on the corner of Missouri and Pestalozzi foreshadows this international restaurant that feels more like a cafe. If you haven't figured it out from the name, the cuisine is Brasilian (that's the right spelling if you're from the country) and the music is a little too loud in this brick-and-wood restoration.
The secrets are visible when looking at the entrees, usually a combination of garlic, onions, tomatoes, potatoes, cilantro, rice and black beans. Vegetarians should try the risotto jardinena, which is a healthy choice of peas, corn, red and green peppers, raisins and rice--perfect for a light but filling meal.
Yemanja. My husband is from Brazil, and for him being this far away from home it lets him feel a little bit like being at home. I have not gotten the chance to visit Brazil yet but Yemanja gives me the chance to try my husband's culture. The people that work there are so nice. Everyone needs to experience Yemanja.
One of the best in St. Louis!.
I've been to Yemanja Brasil twice and have had some of my best dining experiences in St. Louis. The service is friendly, the atmosphere great and the food will leave you extremely satisfied.
Whether you are with a celebrating with a very large group or having a romantic dinner for two: make the trip to Benton Park area and Yemanja Brasil.
Big Boys Heaven. From start to finish Yemanja Brasil has it all. We started the night with a great waiter. By the end of the night we were having conversations with the owner. The authentic Brazilian drinks and beers were wonderful. Our waiter followed by pointing us to the appetizer favorites. Our choice was the gulf shrimp on garlic toast with salsa. After that came soup and salads. The salad was clean and fresh, and the soup was excellent. Both entrees were supurb. The chicken entree were two large chicken breasts baked in corn meal, and covered with imported Brazilian cheeses. The pork entree had 3 pieces of pork topped with carmalized onion and pinapple. It also came with three great sides. We finished the night with Pudim Coca. Rich pudding cake topped with a coca sauce and coconut. I cannot say enough about my experience at Yemanja Brasil.
