The place is small with a lively vibe. Our server (Tiago) was extremely friendly and service was outstanding. We were in a group of 7 and had so much fun at this restaurant. Sat for over 3 1/2 hours! We opted for the tasting menu at $40 which was very reasonable. The food was different and delicious. We had no idea what was coming which added to the fun. The menu gets changed daily or weekly. It is BYOB which keeps the cost down. Will definitely visit this place again. read lessJacqueline D.11/16/2018

As someone who used to go to Portugal often to visit family, and eat a lot of food, Broa's food is the perfect place to remind me of those memories. Garlic Shrimp is by far the best plate along with the pastel de nata. I've taken a few friends here, and they're blown away at how good Portuguese food is. read lessJoana F.1/09/2020

Had my night at the garden at the back with some lights hanging above, which is a very great experience. Would love to come again and try different menu. read lessAngela H.6/30/2019

Originally we were supposed to be dining at the 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 lessBrian M.11/06/2018
