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

    I've been to other Brazilian steak restaurants which all seem to be great in taste but this place was by far the least. The meat was dry and not as tasty as we would expect. I wish we would have known this prior as we would have taken our businesses to a true steakhouse. Two meals and drinks was not cheap so the money we spent would have definitely been well worth it at a nicer steakhouse....though the service was exception and salad bar was by far the best I've seen in any other Brazilian steakhouse.

    For $40-$50 you can get some decent quality cuts of beef, as well as lamb, pork, and turkey. It's a brazilian style steakhouse so you eat all you want and don't even have to get up to serve yourself (although there is a "salad" bar with more than just salad). And the service is very good. You can ask for specific cuts and they will make sure you get them (as long as they actually serve them). I try to come here at least once a year with a few friends. You know, whenever we want to pig out and pig out in style. Would definitely recommend.

    I've never had a bad experience their before. This is probably my twentieth visit to Brasa and we are not sure how soon we will me back. Service was spotty and slow. We requested one type of meat 4 times. It never made it to our table. They were serving it - they never came over. The "fixings" never made it prior to the meat. I had to ask another waiter to bring them. Overall I'm really disappointed. It was my friend's birthday and we planned on having dessert but they never came back and I had to ask twice for the bill. Not sure I will try my luck again.

    My boyfriend and I celebrated his 25th birthday there. Let's just say it was an all around INCREDIBLE experience! I made reservations online about a month in advance - requested a "Happy Birthday" dessert and a secluded table. They went above and beyond for my requests & the food was absolutely delicious. Bravo! We will definitely be back again.

    This place was a fun experience. It was something that my husband and I had never tried. If you like meat a lot this is the place for you. If your not a big meat person I would say try someplace else. The only bad thing is at this price point I dont think it should be buffet style.

    To start, the valet parking was a nice touch because we were running late and this removed the parking search. The staff was cordial and we were seated per our reservation request away from the bar and front door! The buffet was minimal but tasty. The meats were all very tasty and hot! The service was excellent! Never an empty glass! The dress of some of the patrons was a little too informal for such a nice place. A little pricey but worth it for special occasions! We will return!

    This is the fifth time that we have eaten at Brasa Grill and it was beyond wonderful! We had reservations for four of us at 5:00 on a Saturday evening and it was perfect. Not too crowded, we were well taken care of and the food was amazing. The flank steak was especially good! Go hungry because there is a lot of food!

    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.

    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.
