Bombasha reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Absolutely Fantastic

    Dined on 7/6/2013
    Dined here on a Saturday night after having made reservations through OpenTable. We were sat immediately by the hostess and our drinks were there within a few minutes. The entire experience was fabulous; all of the meats were perfectly cooked and the servers were attentive and friendly. The grilled pineapple is delicious beyond words. The only complaint I have about the place, (and this is hardly a complaint) is that their salad bar is considerably smaller than what one would find at a Fogo de Chao or Texas de Brazil, but the salad items were fresh and delicious. Besides, if you desire to fill up on salad, you might want to choose a restaurant other than one whose main selling point is an endless parade of meat. I will definitely return.

    This was our first experience with a Brazilliam Steak House. Part of the fun of this meal was just learning what all was taking place as we dined. An excellent salad bar, just be careful here not to fill up.... There's lots more food coming! Try everything... Then you can ask for your favorite(s) to be served again. Desert was top rate, but not included in the meal price. Wine list was good.. Both average priced bottles and some really nice cellar selections. Would have given the food a higher rating but the red meats were all well done and we are rare red meat eaters... Rare was just not available... Possibly a special request? We would recommend this restaurant.

    With unlimited salad bar and unlimited meat, how can you go wrong? Everything on the salad bar is fresh, and there are lots of options, including varieties of cheese, pasta salad, smoked salmon, etc. More than just a salad bar. Then of course 12 meats, brought out when you're ready as indicated by a card on your table. With that many options, everyone is sure to find a few they love. They have low lighting and soft, "elevator" music that makes it good for a romantic date. I also enjoy taking friends and family since it is a unique experience. I haven't found anyone yet who hasn't loved it!

    Enjoyed the great food, surprised at the well stocked salad bar, wished the gauchos announced the name of the meat, but everything was enjoyed. Not to crazy about the gratuity being added on, but that is a sign of the times

    So glad to have one of these restaurants back in town. Diners should consider this location particularly for celebration events and when "something different" is the requirement. We all really enjoyed the food and only caution is to not fill up on salad bar and amazing rolls such that you can't fully enjoy the meat selection. The wine list is a bit disappointing. While there was a good circulation of meat selection, waiter was scarce and we had to ask for several things (wine, side dishes, water) multiple times before they would arrive.

    Went there on my 10th anniversary and had noted this on our reservation notes. We were greeted by the hostess with Happy Anniversary! As well as the server. The cuts of meat were wonderful and cooked to perfection. The service never slowed and flowed at the perfect pace. The server was attentive but not in your face the entire time. After a few rounds .. The salad bar was not big but all the selections were fresh and delicious. Wonderful experience.

    The assortment of meats was plentiful and simply delicious. Tender and just delicious, did not want to stop eating but after 4 rounds with brief respits in between my party & I declared no mas. Also notable was the cheese bread which is more like a mini pop-over, so good!

    We had an enjoyable meal with good service. Nothing outstanding. The salad bar was unique but below other Brazillian Steakhouses. The meats were well prepared but flavor was lacking in most of the meats. This dining experience could be much better with a little tweaking of the food flavors. Service and setting are nice.

  • Why bother making reservations?
    Mcnjerome
    Dined on 5/4/2013
    So I made reservations for 4 to celebrate my fiance's birthday. When we got there, the staff acted as if they hadn't received a notice from OpenTable that we even had a reservation. Instead of having something set up, we could see the staff scrambling to find a place for us to sit. When they did finally seat us (after asking us to sit & wait at the bar for 10 minutes), we were put in the back corner. Our server was a great guy, just a little nervous. However, because we were stuck in the back, we didn't get to see/eat all that we know Bombasha had to offer, & two of us didn't have forks when seated. Overall, it wasn't a tragic experience. Just a little irritating that I bothered to make reservations and were treated as though we didn't.

    Second time at a Brazilain Steak House and I was not disappointed. They did not appear to be very busy for a Friday night and we appreciated the attention. The size was just right for a night with the wife and the street view made for great date conversation.

    Food was decent, waitstaff was not very attentive especially given the astronomical prices paid. I would have expected some sort of filet to come out... Only saw pork chicken strips and ribeye... Other Brazilian steakhouses have better cuts of meat for a much cheaper price. The salad bar was very limited. The waiter did not bring out enough sides, And only brought out more when we asked him three times. It was also so cold in the restaurant I couldn't wait to leave, I actually left before I was finished eating. I also would've expected the wine list to be about twice the size that it actually was. Even if I had a gift certificate to cover the entire cost of my meal I am not sure that I would go back.

    This was the second trip to Bombasha in last few months. The first was good, the second was a waste of money. The meat selection was dismal. The service was slow and could not get the bills correct. If I had anything positive to say the pineapple was good. But we didn't go there for the pineapple. The atmosphere was fine and no complaints there. But with so many other choices, I can say I will not chose Bombasha again.

    Food was great but our waiter was horrible! We specifically told him it was our first time there and he didn't really tell us how the process worked. We had no idea on cost until we asked what the price was halfway through the meal. The vegetables were suppose to be unlimited but we never received anything after our first round of veggies. The bill included an 18% gratuity which I understand but when I paid with cash our waiter neglected to bring me back my change!!!!!!!! We heard the other waiters interacting with their customers and they were good, I guess we just happened to get the worst waiter...I wouldn't go back because of him. The place next door was awesome though!!!

    This Brazilian steak house has been highly rated and rightly so. The food was good. The service was very good and the atmosphere was very nice. As far as Brazilian steak houses go though, we (my wife, who is part Brazilian and I) thought Bombasha was average. While we enjoy these types of restaurants, Bombasha didn't stick out as above average to us. One of the biggest reasons was we felt like the price point for this restaurant was very high as compared to other Brazilian restaurants. On both their drinks list and especially their buffet price. We would recommend this place, but only for that rare special occassion but expect to pay for this experience.

    The salad bar was impressive in the sense that it was beautifully laid out with unusual item not often found on salads bars such as asparagus spears, heart of palms, antipasto platter, smoked salmon. Don't fill up on salad though, because the variety of meats that continue to come to your table are delicious and plentiful. It was a wonderful experience dining at Bombasha.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    Small selection for salad bar ( less than 20 total items & 5 were cheese), overcooked meat , meat had a weird gamey taste, gauchos weren't as comfortable with the giant knives as I would have like with the blade coming too close to my face more than once...and over priced to boot. I was expecting something more like Texas de Brazil in Memphis which is the same concept but the salad bar had 100s of gourmet quality items and the meat was amazing in taste and quality. However , even without the comparison the meal was not worth nearly $40 per person

    Our party of four all had a very tasteful and pleasurable dining experience. Our main waiter knew we had a Groupon, but he didn't treat us any differently than any other party present. I chose the salad bar option only because there wasn't enough meat to my liking to justify choosing the meat option. The salad bar is a bit smaller than the three other Brazilian style restaurant we have dined at, but there was still plenty of tasty choices. With the fabulous gluten-free rolls and the side dishes to accompany the salad bar, I was quite pleasantly full when it was time to leave. The other three members of our party chose the meat option and were completely satisfied. They all thought it was cooked better than the meat at Rodizio.

    On a vacation trip with my boyfriend to Nashville, I saw this Groupon and he'd never been to a Brazilian steakhouse before, so I thought it would be a nice dinner for us. There were questionable reviews on other sites, but we had no issues whatsoever. The waitstaff and gauchos were very attentive, and the food quality was very good.

    It was a really nice place, the service was good but the food wasn't very good. I've been to a Brazilian place similar to this that was WAY better and more varieties were offered plus the food was actually warm and it was less expensive and the good quality was much better. The worst part about Bombasha was the 18% gratituity charge that's automatically added. Not cool!!

    I really wasn't impressed. The food was so so but honestly its just a few steps up from a golden corral. Nothing really stands out as being awful but nothing really stands out as being exceptional. I can think of at least 50 different places I'd rather spend a $150 dinner tab on than Bombasha. If you like quality over quantity this is not the restaurant for you.

    First time to dine at Bombasha, and it was a very nice experience. Service was excellent. The food was presented in a very unique manner - staff with steaks skewed on swords. There was a good selection of meats, of good but not great quality. If I had any negative to pass along it would be the side dish offerings. They were very limited, but maybe anything different would not have been consistent with the Brazilian style of steakhouse dining.

    We had a party of 8. Had a nice table where we all could talk and be heard. Service was slow on the drinks and the server forgot things a few times. The salad bar was very good. Most of the meat selections were very good and plentiful. We would have liked to see a couple of higher end cuts of meat such as filet. Even though we paid with separate checks, they added a 20% gratuity to each bill ~ I don't think that was fair. On our reservations we noted that we were celebrating a birthday, but they did nothing to celebrate. Overall we all enjoyed it.

    My boyfriend is a meat and potatos man, because of this we have been wanting to try Bombasha. His birthday was the perfect reason to go. We found the service to be attentive, and the food to be delish. This WAS our first rodeo for a Brazillian Steakhouse and we were not once made to feel like fools. Everything was explained well to us. We were tucked away in the salad bar room where it was nice and quiet. OH and the salad bar, nice. The only thing I do wish was that there had been a little more aknowledgment of his bday, but he was happy so as a result I am happy. I feel like the price was pretty spot on, and we tried all 12 cuts keeping a list to keep track. We will def add Bombasha to our rounds.

    I thought Bombasha was pretty amazing. The atmosphere was nice. The way they serve you is unique and the waiters we all very polite. The only negative thing I can say us the meats were all undercooked, in my opinion. If you don't like your meats red you may be a little put off. All the meats were still delicious given they were undercooked. Overall it was a great place for a special occasion.
