    If you haven't been to a Brazilian steak house, this is an experience. It is a meat extravaganza. Continual service of skewers of beef, pork, chicken, lamb, and an occasional fried pineapple. They want you to fill up on the "salad" bar, but don't. It's interesting, but the meats are the focus. Brazilian fare tends to be heavy garlic on the meat and quite a bit of citrus and mint. I only rated it a four star because some of the meats tended to be a little bland. However, I would highly recommend the experience.

    Armor beats Chima in uptown at half the price and just local to South Charlotte at Matthews. I'm delighted. I'll be back. A more varied and full salad and side bar than Chima which had no potatoes at all- and Amor had mussels too. Meats were complete from beef to pork to chicken to lamb and they kept coming. All in all a gem. Desserts were another surprise -- a top quality variety -- with strong coffee.

    We had a "buy one dinner/get one free coupon" and when making the reservation we requested that they contact us if using the coupon would be a problem. When we got there we were told they were under new management and would only allow a buy one/get one 50% off deal. The food on the salad bar was fair, but on a positive note, the meat was delicious.

    The variety of food at Amor de Brazil was expansive. The salad bar actually had more options than some of the higher end churrascaria restaurants I've been to. They also had a wide array of meats. They weren't the best meats I've ever had, but they were still very good and quite satisfying. This is a solid 4 star experience.

    From the moment we walked in we felt welcomed, the customer service is outstanding! From the hostess to our attentive waitress to the rodizio men who serve meat, each person was knowledgeable and friendly. We came on a weeknight to avoid the weekend crowd. Salad bar is AMAZING & gourmet, no iceberg lettuce here! Think antipasti taken to a whole new Brazilian level. Meats are varied & perfectly cooked. We will definitely be back!

    Went for Restaurant Week - the deal was excellent, and I really enjoyed the food. However, the live music was just too loud for conversation - at least by our table. The musicians were good, just a little loud. The only complaint I would have is that the food came out in odd ways - my table was full before the ribs ever appeared. I understand cooking times, but we were there about 7 pm on a Sunday night, not generally the busiest time, and it was fairly quiet. Otherwise, the servers were very attentive, and our waitress was great.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    I had high hopes for this restaurant but came away with a very mediocre experience. The salad bar was average with the high point being the cranberry cheese. The meats were generally decent but the gaucho's were spread too thin and we waited a long time between meats. The cheese rolls were good. The mixed drinks were tiny for $7.00 each. Their local competition is Chima and they are behind. Both could learn a great deal by visiting a Texas De Brazil.

    My date and I enjoyed the salad bar tremendously. Very creative use of differing food items there. The meat was very good. Will have to admit I think Chima's steaks are more juicy but this was very good. The noise level was too much...the entertainer was very good, great voice, good music...however, we found the entertainment to be too loud. We couldn't talk, we had to raise our voices a bit to hold a conversation. Hope the singer lowers his music volume a bit next time. This is why I rated the ambience low on your scale above...the interior of the restaurant was great but the entertainer needs to realize that he is not the main attraction, the food and the date we were on was the core of why we're there, not to see/hear him.

Only downfall is that my request for flowers and a private dining area went unnoticed. Instead I was seated in the corner of the main dining area with grapes and wine on my table....Not exactly what I asked for but nice nonetheless. Drinks were great. Hostess were excited for my proposal.

    We have been to Amor De Brazil many times previously and always enjoyed the exceptional food and service. We'd heard the restaurant was under new ownership but thought nothing much would have changed. We were wrong. The entire staff had changed. The quality of meats (the star of any rodizio) was inferior and poorly cooked and seasoned. We were offered many meats that were "well-done" which meant they were overcooked and chewy, and almost everything lacked salt. Our waitress was somewhat inattentive in refilling our water glasses though very pleasant as was the rest of the staff. They just all seemed to be out of their depth. Even the live music was cheesy. We may try one more visit to see if this was a fluke, but if not, we won't be back.

The meat was excellent, although there was less selection. I believe we had 8 or 9 to choose from. The sirloin was my favorite. The staff was well trained and very attentive to our needs.

    We entered the restaurant and no one greeted us. It looked like they were going to have a big party in one of the rooms the way the tables were set up. the hostess finally greets us. We tell her we have a reservation. She said they are backed up do to a party that didn't even start yet. She said if we wanted to eat would would have to wait an hour and told us to go to the bar. We could not believe it. We said, "but we have a reservation". She said, "sorry but some other patrons came in before you and they filled up the reservation section". What? We were upset since we have never eaten here and it was our date night. Some of the meats were wonderful while others were over cooked. On a good note, our waiter was very nice.

    I made reservations here for my sister's birthday. I felt really bad afterwards. It was crowded and loud. the service was horrible. we were trying to stay away from downtown because of the CIAA madness but in retrospect we should have dealt with that and gone to Chima. The atmosphere was harsh and they totally ignored the fact that it was her birthday although I told them in advance.

    Amor de Brazil was recommended to me by some friends, so we decided to give it a try. Definitely worth the money! I loved the fact that there was an option to only select the salad bar, because that itself was enough for some in the party. The service was great and so accommodating; on two separate occasions, our waitress and the guys walking around with the meat brought us things that we specifically requested. Will definitely be going back soon!

    Amor de Brazil offers everything you expect from an American churrascaria. Good wine, ample salad bar, wide selection of meats. If it is slow, you may have to ask for the Picanha by name (the house meat, the best cut in most people's opinion). The fried bananas are great. They have something I've never seen before: roasted pineapple with cinnamon (on a stick, of course). I didn't have occasion to try it, but it looked very good.

    Frequent this place a lot. Not as good today as it usually is. Not bad, but not up to par with their usual service and selection. Buffet selection had half the cheeses and meats it usually has. No cheese breads or fried bananas were provided to our table. We were told that the person who makes them wasn't in that day.

    Went here for Valentine's weekend. Food was decent, but not outstanding. The salad bar was good and had a decent selection. The meats were limited for a Brazilian steakhouse. The service is not that good. If you make a reservation, there is still a very good chance you'll have to wait for a table for 15-20 minutes. The hostess is lost. There is little room for waiting and people are stuffed in a small area to wait. Poor design. This is a common complaint for this place and they need to fix it.

    . We went Saturday and had 6:45 p.m. reservations . When we arrived at 6:40 we were told our table would be ready in 5 minutes. We saw the table was being wiped down. We were asked to stand by the bar area. At 7:05 we had to finally say something as the tables had already been cleared but no one was setting the tabel. I am very disappointed that with an open table reservation we had to wait 20 minutes. A first for us. The service was very slow but overall the food was good and I would say definitely a place to try. Just be prepared. We finally left the restaurant at 9:30. Withe 3 year olds was a bit tough.

    A good Brazilian restaurant. Wonderfully seasoned meats with great variety. A good selection of salads and veggies. Attentive waiters always asking if we needed anything else. The only complaint, was when we requested a specific meat we didn't always get it. It was almost as if they forgot to send it to us. I would definitely go back. Be very hungry when you go. Though the price is more reasonable than other Brazilian skeak houses it is still pricy if you don't eat large quantities.
