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 beef was not at all what we expected. Way over seasoned and tough. The filet you could not even cut and that is usually like butter. Not the case this time.

    I went to Brasa with my fiancee to celebrate me getting a new job, and it turned out to be the perfect place to celebrate! The food was amazing! The meat they bring out to you is cooked perfectly. The buffet had so many different options it was great that I could go up multiple times and not get the same thing twice. The service was also impectable. We never had an empty drink and the servers always knew just when to take empty plates away.

    This is a fun dinner spot for groups. All you can eat meat and salad bar. Extensive salad bar. Enjoyable meal but a bit pricey. Five people, eight drinks ran 350 bucks with tip. Tons of sodium in the meat. All preparations seemed to be marinated so get ready for a lot of salty food. I doubt I would go back just because of the price point.

    I've been to this style of restaurant in other cities and Brasa did not measure up. Had to wait 15 minutes for a reservation. Was sent to lounge and no staff approached our table. Salad bar was minimal. No dress code. Men with hats on at tables and dressed in sweatpants. Not the way I like to spend nearly $200 with minimal alcohol.

    I've eaten at Brasa many times. The food is fantastic! The service is fantastic as well. It's a different experience at Brasa because you don't read off a menu. Your table is bombarded with waiters offering you lamb, pork, all kinds of beef, chicken, etc.... My favorite restaurant by far. Thank you, Brasa Grill for a wonderful night out!

    Well...I was disappointed in the salad bar. I expected what was advertised in their website...40 item salad bar and that was not what was actual. While what was there was good, I would have liked to have more of a variety of items.

    Unlimited salad bar and as much meat as you can eat for one price per person. Great for people who don't mind eating a lot who like eating a lot. Many choices of hot meats and things at the salad bar. They get you on the alcohol, but if you don't over-indulge on the alcohol, you bill at the end will be very reasonable.

    This was my first time trying Brasa and I was very impressed by everything they had to offer. We had a quiet and romantic dinner with impressive service. I never had to look for a server, they were at our table side again and again to fulfill our every need. It is a buffet restaurant however they actually bring the main courses to your table until you are bursting at the seams! I can't wait to try them again...I'm sure it will be soon!

    Brasa is in a beautiful historic building, on a street that ends right at Lake Erie. A Sunday after a Browns home game might not be the best time to go, mostly for traffic and parking. The atmosphere is amazing, the service was attentive and friendly, but the meat was disappointing. There didn't seem to be any seasoning or marinating of the different cuts, so everything tasted the same. I just think that for $40 a person, in a meal that is focused on meat, there should be something flavorful and enticing to make you look forward to.

    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.

    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.

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.
