    Truly, the food here was absolutely delicious. They bring various meats to your table at your request, in addition to a "salad bar" which has far more than salad (like smoked salmon). Really, the selection and quality were absolutely fantastic.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of good options, both of meats and at the salad bar. While not all the meats served were to my liking, there were a couple that were worth going back for. The salad bar could use a couple more tossed salad and fruit options, but the hot items and other side dishes were very good. Excellent service as well. We left very full and satisfied with our visit.

    Having been to Fogo de Chao Brazilian steakhouses, we were excited by the concept coming to Asheville. So, I did have hopes for a special meal, though I tried to temper expectations. Unfortunately, we were still disappointed, and likely will not be back. It was a week-night, so there was no reason for service problems, but things were still slow & disorganized, with such as the "gauchos" ignoring the "no-meat" card while we were trying to catch-up/savor. It started badly, with our favorite Caipirinha drinks being awful, without the proper balance of flavors. The salad bar was very good, though somewhat limited. The big disappointment was the meat; the selection was wide as usual, but the quality was consistently chewy & mediocre at best!

    I was in a group of nine people and we were celebrating four family members birthdays. Service was wonderful and the food was wonderful. We ordered several bottles of wine and they were wonderful as well. The only negative comments I have were that we were lacking some condiments that would have been really nice to have on the salad bar.

    Fast all day and go in hungry! Big dining room and continuous flow of meats. Meat cuts were sometimes a bit cool when cut from the skewer...but had some hot ones too! This is a fun place to go and convenient for large groups...not many with that convenience in downtown Asheville. Very reasonably priced for quality of food. Recommended.

    We were seated pretty quickly- helped to have a reservation. The dining room was pretty loud and it was hard to hear the waitress, but overall it was a nice setup. There was a pretty extensive salad bar with hot side options. The waitress said that there would be 14 meat options brought around, but we were only offered 8- pretty disappointing considering the cost. We would have had 2 or 3 more options, but there was a male blond server that pretty much refused to serve us. He would walk around our table to all of the ones around us, but would never acknowledge us- even when my boyfriend tried to flag him down. He simply ignored us. Overall, it was nice though- not that we would go often, but maybe the occasional special night.

    Salad bar was very good, actually the best part of the meal. We were very disappointed with the taste and quality of the meats. The garlic steak was like eating a garlic clove it was so over powering. The meats (especially the steak selections) were bland and some even tough. Very over priced, not at all the quality we expected for the price. The desserts were very good with the exception of the turtle cheesecake which was served semi frozen.

    I put a review on Tripadvisor for your restaurant. I would state that As a Concierge of a Hotel I make recommendations for places to eat all the time. And my recommendation would not have been good had it not been for the new waiter Andy. He took it on himself to see that we had the things we needed while we were eating at your restaurant.Because we didn't see our waiter for close to 40 minutes once he took our drink order.

    Compared to my other experiences, this one was off. Alot of the food on the salad bar tasted like it just came out a jar, rather blah. Meats were good, nothing really outstanding. Filet Mignon was the best.

    This was such a fantastic evening. Yes, it seems pricey but the per head price tag gets you LOADS of the finest quality meat with a full buffet of salad, seafood and hot sides. The service was phenomenal and the experience was awesome. We were there for my dads birthday and stayed for hours. No one tried rushing us to the check, in fact we were encourage to keep eating and "try everything at least once". Thank you for an awesome experience. We will DEFINITELY be back.

This was a special night for my husband and our dear friends, we were on date night without our children, it was amazing adult night. I Can't wait to bring our Friends/Family when they come in from GA. however the AMAZING men that brought the FABULOUS MEAT around were just that "FABULOUS"! Nice, attentive, just fun! (even got pic's). It was nice to dress pretty and enjoy our amazing meal with our amazing husbands (we felt like Pretty Woman). The bar is FAB! The manager "very nice"!

    I have been to a Churrasco Steakhouse before but this one had a truly exceptional buffet to go along with the delicious meats that were served. The buffet was so extensive, to include smoked salmon, shrimp, hearts of palm and artichokes, that I could barely eat the meat. I would definitely consider going there just for the buffet (which I understand you can partake of without having the meat at a lower cost). The manager came over to chat with us and ask how everything was going which we all appreciated.

    From the appetizers which arrive unbidden to the salad bar, which is different on both sides, to the end kettles of potatoes and other starches, everyone can find something delicious. I still like the way the pace of the arrival of the meats (and the roasted pineapple!) on skewers can be totally timed individually by the turning of one's coasters on the table. It makes for a measured and enjoyable dining experience at a pace where the hot food does not grow cold.

    My fiancé and I ate here and really loved the experience! It was very nice to get to try so many different kinds of meat that I otherwise would probably never try! The price is high so it's not an every day type place but great for special occasions. Only issue we had was our waiter was VERY slow to ever refill drinks when his table beside us was getting constant attention, my fiancé had to go to the bar to get us a drink one time & even when we turned our cards to red they kept coming to our table with the meat so it was a bit much but nothing that would prevent us from coming again. Just hope we get a different waiter next time!

    I think we were done eating in 30 minutes. You felt very rushed to eat as the servers came by very quickly. Meat was very salty, I know they are marinaded but they need cut back on the salt. The restaurant seemed nixed and clean however was hardy there long enough to take it in. Probably wouldn't go back better restaurants in Asheville than this one.

    During mission trios to Brazil I've wished we had a churrascaria in the USA. I was delighted to see one here in Asheville. Reserved a table for our 59th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful night. The food was excellent and the staff treated us like royalty. Price was not bad for us to want to go back again. Would love taking a group from the church to share another memorable night.

    Ate several years ago at Porcau in Miami and was looking forward to trying this place. Was not disappointed. The salad bar was huge and had mashed potatoes and broccoli to go along with the meat. Every meat they brought to the table (even when our card was on the red side) was tender and tasty. Loved the whole lamb chops and bacon wrapped filet. The caprihana (drink of Brazil) was refreshing. Great place to take a group and eat for a couple hours.

    I brought a group of 14 for a relaxed business dinner and it was perfect. The staff were all fantastic and the food very good. The salad bar was huge and the parade of meat fantastic. The house special and lamb top the list of meat but they didn't bring out lamb except once. The pineapple dessert was mouth watering. My only complaint is the tomatoes and mozzarella on the salad bar were both sub par. But for the price you won't be disappointed. An overall great experience.

    We dined at Brasilia for my daughter's birthday. The experience was unique and fun. I was dismayed that they would not allow my handicapped mother to take her leftovers home. She has difficulty speaking, chewing, and swallowing so she eats very small portions at a sitting. The food left on her plate was wasted when she could have enjoyed it later (especially for $35!)
