  • Not enough house and filet and instant potatoes
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/22/2014
    This place was very nice although thought more upscale. Sat night saw people with jeans and sweatshirt. Had reservations at 8 but people without who arrived at same time were seated before us. Not worth the 50 bucks unless you are starving. Salad bar had instant potatoes and no manchego cheese. The Waldorf salad didn't have enough walnuts mostly apples. We asked for extra cheese bite rolls and took until end of meal to arrive. They were best part of meal. We left table and arrived the fries two types?? And what was a fried banana would have been nice to know what they were. House was best cut of the evening and seasoning was ok wish I had my hienz 57. Had I had steak sauce would have eaten more. Dining kept pushing lamb and sausage all night didn't see bacon wrapped filet even after asking and garlic made one trip.

    This is definitely a restaurant for a special night out. It is a little on the pricey side but we'll worth it for that special occasion. When you get sat you are told all about the Brazilian style restaurant and how the food service works there. We had 2 of our house specialty drinks made table side which was great. Then we helped ourselves to the sides bar. It was filled with cheeses, veggies and salads. Then dive right into some hot side items and waited for all the meats to come out. The Garlic beef was my favorite. It was tender and delicious. The variety was great and we all ate till we were full! The service staff was very friendly and definitely made our experience there so much better. We definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone we meet and will continue to do so. It's a great restaurant with a fun atmosphere and some delicious food.

    I've been to several Brazilian steak houses around the country and I like this one best. They have one in my hometown of Louisville, but, I drive the 100 miles to eat here. The meat is good, not great, so of you're wanting top notch beef try another steakhouse. However, the meat is good and lots of it. The "salad bar" is excellent and would make a great meal in itself.

    The service we received was outstanding. The gouchos and other staff attended to our every need and went above and beyond. The lighting was low, a bit too low, but as it darkened outdoors, they brought the lights up. We thoroughly loved our meal and actually thought the food was a touch better than a popular braza in our area (indianapolis) and priced nearly exactly. It is a pricey meal but ok to splurge when the food is great and all you can eat style. And believe me, they kept the food coming until we were literally stuffed. We will visit again if given the opportunity I am sure.

    Be among friends at Boi Na Braza! You'll receive individual attention from their highly trained "gauchos" aka authentic Brazilian cowboys who serve up the choicest cuts of beef chicken lamb and pork to your hearts content. Savor the mouth watering flavors and aroma of a true Brazilian steakhouse in downtown Cincinnati. It's a life changing event! The cheese puffs are super addicting! The manager, Fabio, came by several times to check on things. Great food and service in a warm inviting atmosphere!!

    We went there and the place was empty, so the food selection could have been effected. However, what was served was flavorless and limited. We had the selection of only 4 items - 1 chicken, 1 sausage, 1 beef, and lamb (though only saw this once.) I have heard good things on this place, but Wednesday night was not even close.

    the so called, salad bar was an impressive alternative for someone who really doesn't want to eat a lot of meat for which one pays nearly $50 for that privilege. The salad bar ($19.95) supplied Brazilian dishes such as feijoda (or maybe it was just black beans, but delicious none the less), and about half dozen bowls of little Brazilian hot peppers for the testing (there were a couple of scorchers....). About 3/4 of the salad bar was not particularly Brazilian or even South American, but it was high minded having smoked salmon, asparagus, more things than I can even remember now. Finally, brought to each table were little serving dishes of fried "patatas", Polenta sticks, and banana. It was a very pleasant experience.

    I enjoyed the experience and am glad we finally went. Having said that, there was nothing about the evening that makes me feel like I have to go back. The food was good, but only good for $50 a person. Next time for the same money I'd probably go to the high end steak house next door to Boi Na Braza. I've never left there without thinking i can't wait to come back.

    What a fun experience! After over filling our plates with everytyhing amazing from the salad bar, we returned to our table to find a basket of soft, doughy cheese bread bites, fried polenta and plantains! Then came the never ending servings of tasty tender meats cut from the skewer and onto our plates...filet (favorite), sirloin, chicken, ribs, sausages (yummy!) and more. Our waiter was super friendly, couteous , and very attentive. Great place!

    Pretty restaurant, impressive salad bar, mediocre food. We weren't even given prices when we were seated. Our waiter just explained how it works with the meat never talked prices and If I hadn't read other reviews, we wouldn't have had know how much the check would be. The pieces of meat they brought around very small and most were fatty or tough. I found one I that was better, but had to wait for them to come around again to give me another couple of bites. I saw a dessert cart but it was never brought around to us. Good though, because I overheard a waiter explaining to another couple that it wasn't included with dinner. The idea of this restaurant is cool, but don't expect to get a great meal.

    It was my wife's first time at Boi Na Braza. We continually kept asking for medium well selections but would only receive medium rare. The only thing that would catch my wife's eye would be all the blood on the serving plates. For the price of $140 I would definitely recommend several other restaurants in town.

    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.

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!
