    We had party of 10. The service was absolutely horrible. In past, if you didn't want meat, you could get just the salad, which 3 people in our group did but were charged the same as others. After a while they quit coming around with the meat offerings. initially we were told the 2 birthdays would receive a free dessert. when they came out with the dessert, they ordered dessert. After they brought it, then they came out with 2 free ice creams, and charged for the 2 desserts. When came to paying bill which was $679.00, we requested assistance in separating it out. The person got frustrated, said would be right back. Half hour later, we had to ask for help as he never came back. Because of this plan to NEVER return.

    We went here to celebrate our 25 year wedding anniversary with another couple who were also celebrating their 25th. From the moment we sat down to the moment we left, everything was outstanding. The service was incredible, we never had to wait or ask for anything, it was like they knew exactly what we needed and when we needed it! The salad bar cannot be described, it is overwhelming and the different cuts of meats were simply fabulous. We cannot wait to go back!

    My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary by having dinner here. Everything was impeccable! I have never had so many cuts of meat in one meal, and the salad bar featured a variety of unique sides. I loved the shrimp potato salad. The table side bar service was top notch. We had a great experience and will come back soon!

    We went here for my son's 17 th birthday dinner at his request. We visited a similar restaurant in Orlando that he loves. The wait staff was very attentive and food service began immediately. Head waiter gave us some suggestions on Brazilian drink specialties that did not disappoint. They even gave him a special birthday dessert that was divine.While the price of the meal is rather expensive 50 bucks a person....it is all you can eat and certainly worthy of a special occasion.

    Awesome restaurant, always look forward to going there. The whole wait staff takes of you, you can ask for specific cuts of meat, and doneness. new items on salad island. Great place for that special occasion, birthday, anniversary, engagement, or just have to fill a need for meat. We went for restaurant week, had been looking forward to it for weeks and were not disappointed.

    We went there Saturday night for Cincinnati restaurant week. Food was pretty good but can't say much about the service. At first, no one told us how to order meat and such, then we were at the very back of the restaurant and didn't have much food come to our table. The waiter who served our table seemed to be in a rush all the time, asked everything loud and briefly, didn't approach to us often, didn't see a smile on his face at all, quite disappointed about his service and absolutely didn't match the branding of this restaurant.

    We went on an extremely busy night, however, the service we always receive remained the best! I already knew what i wanted when we went in, and I told one of the gentlemen bringing around the meat skewers that I was waiting on something else. The next thing I know, he brought that to me! Our table host was also very attentive! We were actually kind of surprised by this, as it was so busy on Saturday night! (we should not have expected anything less than usual!) Outstanding service! I love going there, although its only a few times a year for special occasions!

    I spent 2 weeks in Brazil and dined at two churrascarias while there. Boi Na Braza does have a slightly more American feel, but the food is dead-on. I have been craving Brazilian sausage ever since I left, and the sausage at Boi Na Braza was just as excellent. The caipirinhas are a lot sweeter than Brazilian caipirinhas.

    Enjoyed this visit tremendously. "Salad" bar has many, many choices and side dishes. Could be meal by itself and perfect for vegetarian options. Staff was super polite, helpful and especially for first time visitors who need a little instruction on how the serving works. Love that you don't have to choose just one thing- can a bite of this and that, try something new and have an extra serving of something you liked. Save room for dessert!

    All of the food was terrific and because of Downtown Restaurant Week a real bargain. While the people serving the meat were friendly and attentive, our server generally was nowhere to be found. We waited far too long to receive our cocktails after ordering (a couple of times) and it took forever to have our plates removed, even though we requested this more than once. We will likely return but will not rush back and will be cautious about recommending this restaurant to our friends. I would describe our prior visit to this restaurant as outstanding in all regards.

    I cannot find if it is possible to get just the salad bar. If it is a 'yes' I will be back. If not, then I prefer other steak places, like Morton's just above, or Capitol Grille, a few minutes away. The server was a bit on the slower side when it came to replenishing coffee, but the coffee was excellent. We did wait a while for dessert. The desserts were phenomenal. I would go just for that, too. Finally, including the tip at 18% on the bill is wrong. It loses the incentive for the staff to do their best. Disney did away with including the tip, and I would prefer to tip what I want (or don't want).

    Raphael (Hope it's spelled correctly) is one of the big reasons to visit this Gem! He insured that our service was fantastic, even though the place was the busiest that I have ever seen Boi Na, and I have been there at least 100 times. Raphael has been the best consistently, and the reason that I continued to return time after time. Don't get me wrong the food is fantastic with a supreme salad bar. Thanks for everything, and see you again soon. By the way it is obvious that the price of $35.00 for 3 courses is a price that brought more customers than any other specials...

    I was a little disappointed with my visit this time. We kept getting the same cuts of meat brought to us and had to ask twice to get one we wanted. Of the 15 cuts, we probably only had 6 or 7 presented to us and of those most came around 3-4 times. They need to have a better plan of covering the dining room!

    Great place that offers amazing, quality food! The meats are incredible and the salad bar is breathtaking. The servers are there to please. It is a pricey meal at $55/person (or $20 for salad bar only), but completely worth the price. Boi Na Braza offers great deals throughout the year between CincySavers coupons, Restaurant Week, and promotional months. ★★★★★

    Make sure you are hungry when you go. They have an unlimited salad bar with all the sides included. They will bring you 15 different meats and you can get dessert. Make sure you come hungry. However do not buy soft drinks. They come to you in a small bottle and no free refills.

    My wife and I spent the night out without the kids at Boi Na Braza. Great food and service with exceptional options for meat enthusiasts. I happily recommend this experience as a date night, but leave the kids at home as Boi Na Braza is slightly expensive and upscale to waste on children (unless you have money and patience to burn). Great for wine lovers and meat lovers, but I wouldn't recommend for vegans or vegetarians as the menu and experience isn't directed at you. I didn't prepare well enough for my experience, as food was unlimited and my appetite couldn't keep up with the great service and selection. Most meats were well prepared for meat lovers, but be ready for rare, salted and fatty selections if this is not your cup of tea.

    We were here for Downtown Restaurant Week so it was quite the deal. The salad bar has enough food of high quality to almost make one skip the meat. Fortunately, we saved room for fillet, lamb, chicken, pork, and another type of steak afterward. There are also other choices so if something wasn't perfect, one could try something else. The staff was friendly and always available. My only concern was that they may not make enough money to keep going.

    If you love meat Boi Na Braza will give you the opportunity to fill up on choice beef, pork chicken, lamb and sausage. The salads, sids and deserts are great as well but the main attraction is the skewers of meat. Go hungry and plan on not eating much the next day.

    This restaurant is always my best eating experience of every year! This was at least my eighth time eating at Boi Na Braza, and I'm never disappointed. The place was very busy due to Restaurant Week, but the staff handled the crowd very well. The meats are simply superb, and we sampled almost all of the various cuts they serve. If you like eating meat, it's impossible to beat this restaurant. The staff are always polite, and attentive.
