Nice atmosphere and decent service but food and drinks were just okay, a lot less than what we were expecting. The cocktails were a bit watery. And we had 3 starters, 2 main dishes, and 1 dessert. The duck starter dish and the main beef dish were the only ones that we thought sort of good but far less than excellent. The rest dishes were just okay.

Wonderful ambience: friendly service, noisy, comfortable. Pricey but great cuisine. Flavors and touches from throughout the Portuguese countries. My wife is from Brasil and she loved it too.

Dined here with the hubby for our wedding anniversary dinner, and it was amazing!

Server was very attentive and when he found out it was our anniversary, we received a complimentary drink. Food was absolutely delicious - cod fritters were very light, and the passionfruit mousse was our fave dessert. Mains were delicious as well - ordered the baked cod casserole (was a lot so took home to finish) and the hubby loved the peri-peri chicken.

We saw the owner afterwards randomly at an event that night and he was as friendly as his staff. Will be highly recommending this place to everyone.

Everything tasted great except for the Carne de Porco, which was good but lacked distinguishing taste of the individual ingredient components

Having visited Portugal a few years ago, it was a pleasure to partake of Portuguese food, done in high style, again. Service, ambiance, and especially the food, were all very enjoyable.

Uma Casa is an absolute gem to have in Noe Valley. The cocktails, food, and service are all fantastic. The hardest part is narrowing down choices on the menu because everything is just incredible.

The food was great, but our waiter was not very friendly and made a couple of mistakes on the final bill. That said, the food was very good. I would definitely recommend the 3 course meal for $49, but be aware of high price for alcoholic beverages.

We arrived on time but were sat down about 20 minutes later since the diners that had our table hadn't finished. Not a major issue and they comped us a drink to make up for it, but didn't set a great first impression and dampened the mood a bit.

Food was generally excellent, with the braised short rib and bacalhau croquettes being highlights. The octopus & black eyed peas appetizer and arroz de marisco were less impressive. We loved the sparkling Portuguese wines.

Service and hospitality were very good.

It was a lively spot. Maybe we weren't used to the din of restaurants after COVID, but if you're expecting a quieter, romantic spot you may not want to dine here on a weekend.

First real foray into Portuguese food and we'll definitely visit again.

If anything, do not buy the wine.

I bought a $68 bottle of wine there, but do you know how much it would be in the store? $13.

I’m not kidding.

A 525% mark up is a little wild. That is absolutely outrageous.

Otherwise, the experience was alright.

Service wasn't the greatest; we weren't greeted while waiting for our table and the servers weren't knowledgeable about the menu. Ambience was also underwhelming. Price for the pre-fix 4 course menu was a good deal - the food was good, not great.

The service here is first rate. From the front desk to the bartender to our server. We started with some sangria at the bar, which was very nice. Then on to our table. Our server helped with a nice choice of a Portuguese white wine. We started with octopus with garbanzos, very nice. Next was sardines, which were grilled and slightly warm. Some thought a little too fishy, but I enjoyed them. Then on to the Gambas, which were the best app to start...nice and spicy shrimp. Then we got the Bacalau, which had a slight vegetal flavor, which put me off a little. The cod itself was good. We finished with Arroz Meriscos. Nice seafood with rice, but not a lot of punch to it. Overall pretty good. Pricey, but that's SF.
