A word from Brasa Grill
Located downtown in the historic Warehouse District, The Brasa Grill Steakhouse is Cleveland’s first Churrascaria (choo-rah-scah-REE-ah), the name used to describe a restaurant that serves meat, mostly grilled rodizio style, a method of serving the different cuts of meat that originated in the south of Brazil in the early 1800's. Brasa Grill serves a wide variety of beef, pork, lamb, chicken, etc., in succession, to each diner individually right at the table, thus there is not a traditional menu. The restaurant features fixed-price continuous tableside service. In addition diners can choose from 40 different salads including sushi, seafood & pastas at their leisure from salad bar. The Brasa Grill Steakhouse offers excellent cuisine, professional service, charming high energy ambience & a festive atmosphere in a large colorful space. Brasa is a haven for meat lovers. From an intimate dinner for 2 to a lavish reception for 300, the Brasa Grill will make your celebration unforgettabl

    The food and waiting staff was very nice and was a great experience. The only thing i had a problem with is when waiting for a table at the bar we were not asked for our drink order for the 15-20 mins we sat there.

    We celebrated a special occasion with seven people in our party and it was fun. It is mostly meat options and you have to be prepared to eat non-stop. The salad bar was very good and plenty of variety. The service was excellent and the server went out of he way to make sure our evening was special.

    For an abundance of proteins in 13 varieties, Brasa is for you. Similar to the Brazilian steak house cousins, Brasa offers a long list of meats accompanied by a large food bar, inclusive of salad, hot appetizers, pastas, etc. The quality of the food is better than the standard restaurant, but the portions are what make this a good deal. Also, the notoriety of enjoying a full service dining experience is positive. Points to consider: Only eat from the servers who have noticeable fresh meat. Items like bacon wrapped turkey and sausage are not top of most peoples' lists, so they tend to be recycled in the ovens. Also, limit your visit(s) to the food bar - there is nothing on that bar that should interest you.

    This was our first time dining at this restaurant. No food menus, only drink menus. Everyone gets the same food - large salad bar, and some sides brought to the table, and then servers with large skewers of various meats (filet, flank steak, lamb, chicken, etc.) come by until you turn your green card over (to red). The food was pretty good, nothing amazing. What was amazing was the bill - about $50 per person, not including drinks. We didn't think it was worth the steep price and won't go back any time soon.

    2nd time at Brasa, and enjoyed it just as much the 2nd time as we did the 1st time. Service was great as most of the servers coming around the tables came by with a friendly smile. Our waitress was just as friendly. Great food, great service. Be sure you bring an appetite because it's all you can eat meat!

    Brasa is my husband's favorite restaurant so I take him there for his birthday. I note in the reservations that it is a birthday celebration and each year we are given a romantic and quiet table and the server wishes my husband a happy birthday and will bring him a treat at the end of the meal. This year, our server was particularly inattentive, and no happy birthday was ever mentioned. Because we have been here before and have had other good experiences, we will come back, but if we get the same server, we will ask for a switch. She made the experience not worth the $160 we dropped there that night. The buser/servers assistant was very good, on the other hand.

    This was me and my husband's first time going to Brasa Grille and we will definitely be going back. The service was great. We had this one waiter name Miguel and he was very sweet and "informative" lol. The food was superb, even the seating was awesome. We had a nice secluded table near the back which was perfect for our date. I would recommend Brasa Grille to all of my friends

    The food is exactly what you would expect - a lot of meat, and good food at the salad bar. The one issue we had was with the wait/bus staff. They were great when serving our table, but we could tell by their non-verbal cues that they wanted to turn our table and/or the tables around us. We all noticed them rolling their eyes, looking at their watches, and staring at the tables in our area from their waiter/bus station (we were seated in plain sight of the wait station). I understand the frustration if we had been there for an excessive amount of time, but we sat down at 8 PM and left shortly after 9 PM. Maybe they were annoyed with another table? I'm certain other diners noticed as well.

    My daughter and I go to Brasa every year for her birthday. This year happens to be her 30th birthday and we were very happy to be spending the evening at Brasa. The food was fantastic, very fun place. Other than a psycho texting me all night, our entire experience was wonderful. We both had a great time and look forward to going to Brasa every year for her birthday.

    I've been there a number of times before with a number of my friends, usually 8 to 10 and we always have a great time and meal. This time I took 2 friends who had never been there or any place like it. They really enjoyed themselves. This restaurant is a "Carnivors Delight" (with the exception of no bacon) with probably the best salad bar - more for the unique variety of choices: crab legs, clams, etc.. then anything else. Will definately be going back there again. . . and again. . . and again . .

    Food was decent. Salad bar was very good. Sides served with meal all awful. You will want to grab a side from the salad bar as the rice, palantas and banana are inedible. Nice selection of meats, sirloin was great, some of the other meats were ok but nothing spectacular. For $100 counting tip and no drinks, it is a bit overrated.

    The huge salad was just okay. The crab was old and was not kept cool enough. The meats were dry and had some funky tastes. They advertise 16 meats we say 7 at best, not a very good effort. The waitress took a very long time to get anything I think they were understaffed and lastly they had my credit card for. Early 30 minutes...

The only disappointment at all was that the valet was more expensive than the website says it is and that should be changed, other than that it was wonderful. Overall it was a great experience and I will definitely return.

    Flat per person rate and you get all you feel like eating. Extensive and fresh salad bar. Waiters attentive and very responsive to your requests. The skewers of different meats - filet mignon, flank, sirloin, beef ribs, pork ribs, sausage, chicken legs, chicken breasts, lamb just keep coming until you say "enough". Really a wonderful experience. Don't eat all day - you will eat this evening at Brasa for the day! Flavorful food. Great. Would come back over and over if I could. However, I sure will, next time I am in Cleveland. This is a place to enjoy as a single, as a couple, as a family and even as a huge family with two or three generations represented. errific. Can't say enough. you Surely must like meat to eat here.

    The buffet was alright. Not your typical fare. The grilled meats were all delicious but all steaks were like rare. Personally I prefer my meat a little more cooked. At $40 a person, I didn't eat anywhere near enough to justify the price. Drinks ans desert are not included in the price. Might go back.

    My husband and I went to Brasa for our anniversary. In my opinion the staff (hostess and server) were not dressed appropriately and they had a lot of tattoos showing. Our server was never around to check on us, we had to ask the water boy 3 separate times to refill our drinks because we could not find our server. We also had to ask the water boy for our check because the server was not around. The food was ok, but a lot of the meats were very fatty and tough. My expectations of this restaurant were definitely not met.

    Having the proteins presented tableside is a Brazilian tradition. It certainly was fun. The servers are quite friendly, and respond promptly to any request. My husband wanted lamb, and it had not passed our table - it was literally seconds after he mentioned this to one of the servers, when the lamb was tableside. It is not a posh restaurant, but I wouldn't hesitate to entertain clients there.

    The service was below average. Our server did not explain much to us even after we told him this was our first time dining there. standard food items such as their corn, bread and white rice was poor tasting in my opinion. There were no kid friendly food items. Sure, I get it, it's not a kid restaurant but kids to go there with their parents and accommodating children even in a tiny way like a kid friendly meal item goes a long way with any parent. My family and I will never go back. It was an experience, we can say we've dined there, but it was a waste of money.

    It was my first time at Brasa. I enjoyed the ambiance and it's in a nice location. The actual cuts of meat were good and when I requested and little more well done cut they accommodated me. However me and my date waited a long time in between the first and second times they came around with meat. About 20 minutes which should never happen at a Brazilian steakhouse. So long that we got full off the salad bar. The salad bar was ok. I liked the salmon and asparagus. Overall I would go back again.
