Went to Canto do Brasil on Franklin the other night and had the most disappointing experience. I heard it was pretty good Brazilian for cheap, and though my snapper entree was great, the shrimp and croquette appetizers were flavorless.
Worst of all -- our service was awful. The restaurant was mostly empty, but our server just sat up front chatting with another server. I had to flag him down to ask for more water, then he didn't even bother bringing it. At the end of the meal, he just dropped off our bill without a word, and I had to call him back to ask if they even offered desserts.
Even if the food was the best I'd ever had, the poor service guarantees that I'll never be back.
Any advice on better Brazilian?
