    Our experience at Barasa was not what we have had in the past. Our server was nice turned in our lobster order and we proceeded to get food from the buffet. We waited about 10 min with our stones turned up on green. Two employees came where we were sitting cut ,meat and left out without asking us if we wanted any meat. It was our 17yr anniversary and that's why we came.We asked one of the emoloyees if they could ask someone to please bring us some meat to our table while my wife waited on her lobster. Several employees did come to our table and said they were sorry and proceded to take care of our table. The lobster came and my wife was very pleased.

    Meats were fatty and tough. Prime rib was horrible. It was a 13 course meat experience and out of all the meats were tough, fatty and they ran out of chicken livers on a Saturday night???? Chicken was good and the buffet/food bar was nice. We especially liked the different exotic types of food in the bar. I had specifically requested that it was my wife's birthday and the waiter indicted that desserts were limited!!!!

    This was our first visit to a Brazilian Steakhouse. If you have not been before, a word of advice, get SMALL potions of each item. You will find there are 2 or 3 items that are absolutely your favorites, and you don't want to fill up on the other choices, good as they may be. Also, make sure you do not have plans afterwards. We ordered immediately upon arrival and still were there for over an hour and a half. And a belly full of meat does not go away like a belly full of carbs.

    Better than average, but still not quite there. The meat was not cooked enough. Medium rare is great, but dripping blood from the center is not. We asked for something cooked a little more in the middle but they never made it happen. The live piano playing was nice but far too loud.

    My experience at Brass was a positive one and I plan on returning. The first word that comes to mind is "fresh." The food was very fresh and enjoyable. I was surprised at the wide selection of food offered on the appetizer and salad bar. I paid for the gold meal that included the meat runners bringing me four unlimited freshly roasted meats that were delicious. My favorite was the chicken. The atmosphere was fun, mature, and romantic. I look forward to returning.

    This is the first time my husband and I have visited a Brazilian restaurant and we were excited. The waiter explained what to expect and how things worked. You have a small rock on the table painted red on one side and green on the other. If you want more meats turn it over to show green; to stop, back to red. The bacon wrapped chicken was very very good. There is also an extensive appetizer bar, with salad fixings, soups, cheeses and seafood. We had a great time and the service was very good.

    Been to other Brazilian style steakhouses and this one could use some polish. The steak guy rarely comes by your table and the sausage, pork and chicken guy are around all the time. When you do get some beef, remember that this is a steakhouse, it's sliced off so thinly that to might get two whole bites out of it. It's clear they want you to fill up on other stuff and avoid giving you anything that you actually came for (I.e.- steak). Interior was intesting and the service was adequate. Price point is too high for what you get.

    We went to Braza for a birthday celebration and the food and service were amazing! It is a little pricey especially for people with small appetites so I would recommend it for special occasions and suggest you go hungry or have plenty of time to sit and enjoy everything. Don't fill up on the appetizer/salad bar before getting a chance to sample all the meats! Overall it was a wonderful experience!!

    Was visiting Raleigh with my daughter to see the state Capitol and museums. Decided to check out Brasa. It is up by the airport so a little bit of a drive from downtown, but well worth the trip. Service was excellent, the food is very well prepared, and the salad bar is amazing. We will definitely go again the next time we visit Raleigh.

    The hot and cold bar was wonderful, an we managed to make it all the way through the rotation of meats, plus the cinnamon-grilled pineapple. Some of the meats were outstanding, the rest were very good. Not much room left for dessert, so no idea if those are as excellent as the meat.

    I have been a big fan of Brasa in the past. Both for personal and professional dining I have found Brasa to be an excellent restaurant. However... When I walked in and saw a 90 for the sanitation rating and I was hosting a business lunch I was appalled and embarrassed. I also found that the meats were overdone, dry and not truly brazillian in nature. Very disappointed.

    I have been to Brasa before and I was not as impressed as I was the first time,I raved about the first experience so it was my plan that i would surprise my husband with a birthday dinner there. The waiter was great but the over all experience fell short. One of the men who were cutting our meat actually stabbed my husband with a knife and because my husband was trying to enjoy his evening he did not complain.Then when i requested a certain dessert for my husband they came out with a horrible display a warmed up microwave muffin with whip cream . Sadly I was also disappointed that the meats and pineapple came out cold for me. I wish i had a better experience that was consistent with my first visit there.

    I've seen Brasa compared unfavorably to Rioz in Myrtle Beach. But I found that the service was definitely better, the salad bar superior, the ambiance more pleasant, and the general experience more relaxed and comfortable. With people at our table having varied preferences for meat doneness, the staff was extremely responsive, remembering which person wanted rare, and which preferred well done.

    As a former server/waiter it is always an exercise in faith when I take my wife out to a "Nice" supper. Customer service in many establishments has gone the way of the Dodo Bird and as a result I often find myself exercising more restraint than enjoying my meal. I am VERY happy to say that this could not be farther from the truth in this instance. Our server "Kenny" was by far the most attentive, personable, knowledgeable, and outgoing server we have had the opportunity to encounter in YEARS. In all honesty it was the kind of dining experience that reminds me that there IS hope for the dining industry after all. Not only will we be back, but we WILL be requesting Kenny as our server!
