    The highest compliment I can give is that the shrimp bobó transported me to Bahia with the first bite. The whole experience had us longing for Brasil. Obrigada to the whole team.

    We sat outside on the other end of a large party. Our waiters were super friendly and attentive. The food they said was from northern Brazil yet the tastes were still Brazilian.

    There is simply nothing else like Caboco in Los Angeles. It’s a wonderful culinary journey every time my husband and I have the pleasure of going for dinner. Listen to your server’s recommendations and enjoy the unique flavors that only Brazil can offer <3 10/10 location for a fun date night and the caipirinhas are to die for!

    Really interesting place! I enjoyed the drinks! Service wasn’t bad but we were just greeted a couple times by different people. We also were interrupted a little too frequently, i think they had a lot of staff and at the time not enough customers to keep them busy. I liked it overall though, really tasty food and will go back to try more.

    Let’s talk about the positives: -great service -water man kept bringing the water with out us asking - ambiance wasn’t bad, but nothing to have a girl say “wow” More of a casual place. -appetizers are okay Negatives -I can’t speak about other dishes as we only had the meat plate and it wasn’t the best. -A little overpriced A on effort tho

    I wish the meat and shrimp were cooked longer. The pork belly was very dry. The dessert also needed an extra kick. We felt the overall taste was a bit plain. The head waiter's service was fine in the beginning but towards the end of our meal, he seemed agitated. At one point, he threw our check on our table without even looking at us which made us feel very awkward.

    The food was very tasty and the space was unique. The portions were very small. The menu said the entrees were meant to share but you really could eat the entire entree by yourself.

    Dine LA Dinner Special, with choice of appetizer, entree, and dessert. $35 per person. Drinks extra. Street parking in the Arts District. Desserts decadent. Sorbet yummy. Salad choice light, crisp, refreshing, tasty. Tartare was a plentiful amount. Kids had tapioca “fries.” Potato purée flavor had to get some getting used to in the entrees, but good portion of food. We were stuffed!

    Fried tapioca was a winner. Crab gratin was undermined by yucca cracker which was too thick and hard. Ribeye special was good but a little over cooked for med rare. Pork shank entree was great, more fat than lean, but the pumpkin and corn cous cous sides paired well. Amazonian dessert was cool with bitter flower paired with chocolate mousse and caramel. Service was slow; took a long time for the entrees to come out and for the check.
