  • Viva Brasa! 2 thumbs up from 12 of us on a Sat.!

    Viva Brasa! Subtle and savory flavors, meat prepared just the way we asked, perfect plating, a healthy pour in a glass of wine...all at very reasonable prices. Our vegetarian friends even found tasty bites for themselves. Our server, Autumn, is a true pro, too. We did our best to keep her running on a busy Saturday night, but she did a great job. And when we told her that our group was on its way to a concert, she made checkout super easy. (Thanks, Autumn!) We'll come again, and we'll bring more friends!

    My party was seated, given our menus and water. For the next 20min. (yes, I timed it), we were totally ignored. Servers and other employees walked all around us and never greeted us or attempted to take our drink orders. All in our party were done reading the menu and we were all looking up & not once did anyone say anything. Hostess staff was totally clueless as they thanked us for coming on our way out!

    Yes it's only $40 whereas most are $70-80 but their selection of meat is terrible (mostly chicken and chicken makes a majority of the rounds) and the non-chicken options are under-seasoned. Take the strip steak for example that comes out looking grey and dull - no caramelization whatsoever, no salt, no flavor. Save your $40 and go visit a real Churrascaria.

  • Best sirloin ever!!!

    Dined on 10/10/2014
    The food is wonderful. The all-you-can eat menu (rodizio) is a total delight. I really liked the subtle seasoning and natural flavors. Since I'm on a low sodium diet, I was able to appreciate that the meat dishes were not salted, but were carved right off the rotisserie spit. Some people complain about the lack of sauces and seasoning, but I rate this as a plus. If you are expecting baby-back ribs slathered with barbecue sauce, you're the wrong place. But if you want some of the best sirloin you have ever tasted, as much as you want, this is the place. The Executive Chef came out several times to check on everything, and the wait staff was very attentive.

    Be prepared to eat. It is not the menu for dainty or picky eaters. Lots of meats: chicken, pork, beef and more beef. Some vegetables. Many California wines of distinction and a few Argentine and Chilean wines, modestly priced. We were a group of four; would be lots of fun with a group. We'll go back.

    All the appetizers were very bland and the meats for main course were under seasoned also. The two best things we had were the Fejuada and Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breasts. The waitress was friendly but poorly trained.

    The food was excellent. We had the Sirloin with Garlic, okra, chicken with Garlic, rice & beans, mango salad. Oh yeah we had flan for dessert which also excellent. The service was prompt and attentive. The drinks were also really, really good. No flaws. Great dining experience.

  • Special Birthday Dinner

    It was my birthday, and I wanted something different and new. Brasa Churrascaria & Brewpub fit the bill perfectly! The service was outstanding from the moment we walked in the door until we left. Our waiter was very helpful in helping us decide what to order, and we were not disappointed. Everything was delicious! We had two small children, and they were made to feel welcome and wanted. We will definitely return.

    The Churrascaria experience is one for almost anyone's bucket list. For a carnivore, it is mandatory. I was a little disappointed by the collard greens. I have never had them "al dente" before and unseasoned (no apparent salt or pepper). Not something I'll order again. We were there at 6:30 on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was about 25% full but the noise level was so loud as to be annoying. The bare walls, floor and ceiling causes the smallest sound to bounce around the room. The clattering of silverware and dishes on one end could drown out a conversation on the other. I would recommend some nice Brazilian tapestries for the walls to catch some of the sounds. I can only imagine the din when the room is full.

    A noisy but vibrant restaurant. Service uneven but staff were pleasant and helpful. The food, when we finally were able to order, arrived out of sequence and we had to keep asking for the drinks which came last. The small churrasco which we ordered was presented with mixed greens and grilled yucca. The yucca was tasteless. Forget it and order a side of garlic fries with herbs. A traditional churrasco - having lived in Brazil - comes with farofa which was nowhere on the menu.

    Food was bland and tasteless, all the meat from the rodizio was not seasoned at all and just tasted like cooked meat. The apps were disappointing, little to no flavor and seemed pre bought and frozen. Server was slow, lacked attention to detail, and over all seemed very confused... Almost like he had never done it before. I would not recommend this restraunt, nor will I be back.

    We thought we would give this a try and were more that surprised to find such a wonderful food and dining experience. The traditional Brazilian dinner is the perfect choice. If you have two or ten people it has something for everyone. If you do not like something that comes by do not worry something else will be by soon. From New York steak to chicken wings to grill pineapple. Lots of sides and salad. Amazed at the options of such quality that can be had for this price.

    Dined on 7/11/2014
    If you love eating meat, your gonna get a kick out of this place. Head here for a birthday party or other special occasion, because your bill is going to be on the high side- Talkin' about $250 for four of us, and we weren't "poppin' bottles." The food was great. The service was pretty aweful. I appreciate that maybe there was just a series of unfortunate events, preventing everything from running smoothly, or perhaps I was ACTUALLY speaking Martian. Maybe it was an off night. Point is: I probably wont go back, which is unfortunate, because the food was great. However, I recommend trying it. Maybe it will be an on-night.

    Food was delicious, and they really do keep bring the meat, but the atmosphere was pretty low key; a little dark and lacking personality. If you've been to Fogo de Chao or Texas de Brazil, this place does things a little differently. No salad bar, and the servers, while very attentive to details, don't make quite the dramatic presentation as the other places. That said, the food was absolutely delicious. There wasn't any lamb, and much of the grilled meat is already in small pieces instead of where they slice off from a much larger cut of meat. The side dishes were good, and the fried plantains were definitely the best I've ever had. Would return again with friends, but only occasionally, and it is a lot of food you end up eating.

    I've loved Brazilian restaurants for years and now we have a great one in Santa Rosa. If you like wood-fire, slow spit roasted meats you need to give these guys a try. We'll be back again and again. The food was great, the wine list was good but needs to be expanded, this is Sonoma County, service was quick and friendly.

    Brasa provided a great dining experience from the attentive service to the delicious food, it was perfect for the couples dinner I had arranged with friends. We especially loved the bacon wrapped chicken and the pork loin with parmesan. My favorite drink was the cherry manhattan - a fabulous pour! Am looking forward to coming back again for happy hour and dinner.
