It needs to stay open for people to be able to use their group on vouchers.

i appreciate the use of the groupon so close to the expiration date (the day before it expired to be exact) and without a reservation - it was a memorable evening!

There were fewer items available on the menu for the groupon deal than the groupon made note of and the restaurant makes you make a reservation 2 weeks in advance, which it also didn't make mention of in the groupon. However the food and service was great.

Rude impolite nasty augmentative never wanted a groupon customer did everything from arguing about making the reservation to arguing about the expiration date to not allowing us to choose from the regular menu to not having the minimal menu items on the LIMITED menu, this was a totally miserable experience

I was a little scared about dinig here after reading some reviews and because it was impossible to contact the restaurant to make our reservation (we made it through OpenTable). However, the food was great, as well as the service, and at the end when we wanted to order some Port, someone came and with great details explained us the difference between the choices. Indeed, a very good experience

A complete disappointment. I was expecting to have the same dinner as I had when I had gone to it when it was still in the West Village and I was surprised to find out that it had nothing to do with it.

They do not always answer the phone during business hours (it took 2 days and many many tries to get a reservation), and service can be a tiny bit spotty at times (eg: drinks forgotten, missing bread plate, missing knife) -- but they are so nice, and the food is impeccable -- so it's hard to mind very much. We had a really lovely meal and that's what we'll remember.

From Our Editors

Mimicking Magellan's journey from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean in miniature, restaurant partners Tarcísio Costa and Miguel Jerónimo set sail with Alfama Restaurant from the West Village to Midtown East after a decade in business. At their new location, they infuse Portuguese flavors into modern dishes inflected by the country’s former colonies in Brazil, Southern Africa, and the Indian state of Goa. In the kitchen, executive chef Francisco Rosa sautés bacon-wrapped filet mignon and serves it with Mission figs and grills scallops to plate with fresh watermelon for an entree as refreshing as a nap in an ice chest. The restaurant’s in-house bakery opens each day at 11 a.m. to serve freshly baked breads such as Pão de Deus, a brioche-like sweet bread with a coconut crust.

Behind the marble bar, bartenders pour crisp, light-bodied vinho verdes—featured in Wine Spectator for their felicitous pairing with heirloom tomatoes—from a mostly-Portuguese wine list. Though cocktails aren’t central to Portugal’s drinking culture, wine and spirits director Costa still makes sure that each has a relevant story to tell: “One cocktail, the Route to the Indies, is inspired by Magellan the navigator—when he was looking for the Spice Islands in the East,” he told the Village Voice of a potion that included curry powder and orange anise liqueur.

The dining area reflects the bright flavors of the food with vivid orange banquettes and blue and white tile work. The restaurant’s focus on Portuguese trade routes shines through as well: walls are ornamented with both the scenery of a Portuguese village and glass-stenciled maps of South America.
