A word from Brasa Brazilian Steakhouse - Niagara Falls
Experience the Gaucho way at Brasa Brazilian Steakhouse. Following a centuries-old tradition of cooking on an open fire, Brasa Brazilian Steakhouse is an exciting edition to the Hilton Hotel and Suites. 12 delectable cuts of fire-roasted beef, pork, lamb and chicken are served tableside. Gourmet salads, fresh grilled vegetables and a variety of side dishes are offered on a buffet while traditional Brazilian sides are served family-style. Using a two-sided disk, diners control the pace of their meal. The green side signals the Gaúchos to bring skewers of sizzling fire-roasted meats to the table. The red side indicates a stopping or resting point. This all-you-can-eat authentic Brazilian experience should not be missed!

    We are family of 4 and wanted to try a Brazilian Steakhouse. The food was good but Brasa did not have enough staff to cover tables. The service was poor. The drink orders were wrong and they never corrected them. Our server was covering about 50 people. When we discussed the issue with manager, she indicated they had a great number of walk-ins. It is poorly managed and staffed. For the cost, we should have opted for Ruth Chris. It was a bad experience and I hate it is how we ended our trip.

    I was at Brasa restaurant second time . First time at our 15 years anniversary and I was totally surprised, all kinds of meat I tried was excellent and I`m not meat lover ! My husband said , he need an extra space in stomach. The grilled pineapple is the best dessert I ever had! At Wednesday we went second time. Restaurant was more quiet and not so busy like around the Christmas. All food at the buffet was good and fresh, enough selection of salads and dressings all meat excellent like first time , very good red dry wine and also service. Our visitor from Europe said " I never ever eat such a good beef meat like here"! And I agree!

    We ate here on the long August weekend, the salad bar area was decent, a lot of "hopefully they will full up on the cheap stuff" quality of salad items and cold cuts. Tey mean was rally good besides the chocken(dry) my only complaint is we went into the meal assuming the rate was $40 all you can eat. To our surprise it was $47.50 with a note "special holiday weekend rate" so not only does the long weekend bring in a huge amount of business but they have to jack up the rates....for food nonetheless, I understand. Why hotels do this but reataurants....that's greedy. No where eleae we ate had any "special" rates. Great food, bad policy...how many people do you think Iv told this story to? A lot.

    Most of restaurant has a great ambience, but our table was located on the raised level on left. Definitely a spot to avoid, poor view and lacks the very nice feel of the main level. While entertainment was good, the music is located at the entrance of the restaurant and can only be seen from a handful of tables. I was expecting the entertainment to be a fun part of the night, but that didn't materialize, we couldn't see it at all from our seats and could barely hear it. Service was pleasant but not attentive. Had to cancel both some wine and pass on dessert as a result of lengthy delays in service. I took a group to another Brazilian Steakhouse in NF last year, Copacabana, and it was much better....great entertainment and lost of fun.

    Salad bar was a pleasant surprise, offering a variety of foods that can be appreciated by the most picky palate. The gauchos were consistently walking around the restaurant, providing a variety of meats, all cooked perfectly. It's easy to get full really quickly, so we paced ourselves accordingly. Still our stomachs were full faster than we wanted :) Topping off the meat extravaganza was the grilled pineapple, dressed in cinnamon. Wow! Just loved it!

    I was impressed with not just the meat but the quality and good selection on the salad bar. The meats were generally great. They cams around frequently. The server was attentive and asked if there was something we wanted to try and hadn't yet or wanted another round of something. The folks were generally nice but the hostess had originally put us in a corner with no views of the city, directly adjacent to the salad bar. We did get moved so that we could enjoy looking out over the city (restaurant is at a high vantage point), but the move needed an approval by management which was sort of weird. We had two adults and two kids, had a few beers shared a couple of desserts and I had a coffee. It ran right at $200 after a 20 % tip.

    We had been to Brasa four years ago when we were in Niagara Falls then, and we made sure to come back when we came to the Falls this year. The experience was slightly different now that we have two children, but staff were very understanding and extremely helpful. It is a bit on the expensive side, but it is somewhere special that absolutely cannot be missed when you're in the Falls! The food is done to perfection every time, and the Brazilian culture experienced while you're there is authentic. Love this place!

    If you want to gorge on meat, this is the place to go. The salad bar is not as good as other Brazilian steakhouses I've been to in Toronto. The meat selection is ok. Nothing was so good that I wanted to have more. It's just different cuts of beef cooked the same way and sliced differently. If you're hungry, then this is the place to go. If you're after quality, there are better places to spend your money.

    The meats that eventually made it to our plates were delicious!! The ribs were cooked too much for our taste, but the other cuts were fantastic!! Though it was a salmon night, we never saw salmon in being there for over an hour and a half. It seems that many of the barseros (meat servers) were hiding as there would be times that there was no meat of any kind around. The location is great to nearly all of the top hotels on Fallsview and this place is the best bang for your buck if you're looking for a great meal and have the time to both experience all of the flavors, and wait for them to eventually come around.

    The food was great. The buffet was huge and excellent and was refreshed constantly. The meats were wonderful and ample. The only issue is that there were two huge groups (we were told that one was 150 people) which made access to the buffet challenging. However, I would recommend it highly, especially for carnivores.

    Rib eyes with lot of marbles, we love it. Grilled pineapple was a total hit. Salad bar was really good. Best of all our server Robin, she's the BEST!!! She makes the experience worth driving 90 mins from Woodstock, Ontario for. We had one very minor comments and the manager came to us and clear it out. It's not worth his time but he did it anyway. This is just as important as the quality of food, it shows the management cares.

    You need a healthy appetite too...focus less on salad bar and more on the meat that the servers walk around with and carve right at your table. But if you must have some veggies, the salad bar is quite large...food was so good... And be careful...it is slippery in there!

    We usually dine at the Copacabana but wanted to try something new. Upon entering the resturant they had a band with a singer,they were very good but as I said they were at the entrance so they could not be viewed from any table (what a waste). The resturant was appealing,friendly,service very good....the buffet fair, the meat salty,dry,grissaly,and fatty.,very low quality. i do not mind spending $$$ on a good meal,this was not the case.

    I have been to Brasa twice now and both times had a fantastic time. The food is delicious and there is so much it is almost overwhelming. Our waiter was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. The only complaint I would have is that some of the meat is overcooked, but otherwise, I highly recommend it.

    Well, I have written about Brasa in the past and my experience this time was no different. We were welcomed as soon as we arrived and seated at a very nice table with a good view facing towards the falls. Our waiter was a nice young guy. Up we went to a very nicely presented cold and hot buffet and with plenty of choice. Back to the table where we turned out cards from red to green to indicate we were ready for the real reason you come here. MEAT!!!!! They have about 12 kinds of meat, including chicken and sausage. The meat was cooked properly for this type of restaurant which is about medium rare although you can ask for it to be more or less well cooked. All in all a great dining experience with no complaints of any nature.

    This was a very disappointing experience. I essentially paid to enjoy a $100 grilled pineapple which was amazing. The signature steak was decent and the rest of the meats were overcooked and/or too salty. The buffet had about four hot items and the rest were cold and over half very plain. There were items on the buffet that had no business being served ice cold like grilled asparagus and zucchini. I've eaten at more casual locations with a cheaper cost that would put this place to shame. It's a once in a lifetime experience because there's no point in ever going back.

    The restaurant was fabulous and I will definitely return for another visit. The hostess was friendly and we were taken to our table right away. Our server welcomed us and presented the drinks menu in a timely manner. All the meat items were very well prepared and there was a lot of options. I do feel the salad bar could have included other options e.g. rice and potatoes. All and all a very positive experience.
