    This was our forth or fifth outing to Brasilia and as usual it didn't disappoint. The food is amazing, the Gaucho's are friendly and with the exception of an overly strong sangria that my wife ordered it was perfect! We will be back...

    We have eaten at several Brazilian steakhouses around the country. This was the pits! I will say that the steak was tender and warm and the gouchos did come around frequently, but the salad bar and sides were terrible! Will not return.

    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.

    NC. The food might just be the best food I have ever tasted. Fresh, Juicy, and I am not a mean lover! AMAZING! I Loved Wed. "Ladies Night" great concept especially for locals (our first visit). 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"! We look forward to our next visit! "AMAZING"!!

    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.

    The food was very good. Not the best Brazilian steakhouse I have been to, but definitely not the worst. Price was in line with expectations ($34/pp). The only major drawback was the service. The server was grumpy even by Asheville standards, not rude or anything just grumpy.

    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!)

    Took a group of out-of-town customers for an evening meal. The food was excellent and everyone was very pleased with the choice. The meat, of course, is the star of the show and the House Special was the best piece of beef I've eaten. The salad bar was excellent with many great choices including shrimp and smoked salmon (a favorite at our table). My only complaint would be how loud it is in the main area which can make it hard to hear. All in all it was a great evening and I will return and recommend.

    Fantastic service and food! Made reservations for Father's Day and even though we were almost half an hour early they were able to seat us right away. I was impressed with every type of meat I tried (parmesan-encrusted pork loin, flank steak, filet mignon, and their famous cut--picanha). The super friendly gauchos made me feel like I was on a cruise with their smiles and service. Will definitely be back for my next special occasion!

    The food was wonderful but we had to wait a while on my drink being the waiter forgot to get it. Although I have to say, once my drink did arrive, it was hands down the best Margarita I've ever had! The ambiance could certainly use some fine tuning. The pink, plastic roses and vase full of plastic flowers sitting a top of the food bar is a bit cheesy considering how expensive the food is. The wash cloths soaking up the rain coming through the bottom of the outside doors weren't the best sight to see but probably necessary at the time. Not a lot of uniformity with dress code either, especially the hostesses. Would I go back; absolutely. Decorations and dress codes are an easy fix but the food will hopefully remain delicious!

    The salad bar was amazing with choices of shrimp, salmon, cheeses, fruits and succulent vegetables. The House sangria had large chucks of fresh fruit that complemented the meal we enjoyed. The meats were brought around and served in a professional and entertainer manner. The gauchos were knowledgeable of the meats as I asked several of them about what the meat was seasoned with. The Gauchos also told us how well done the item was as they served it at our table. Each choice was better than the last. If anything was not to our individual tastes or if we wanted to save room for something that we wanted better, we just passed on the item and requested what we were more interested in tasting.

  • About 25 Years Too Late
    AmazingAsheville
    Dined on 6/6/2014
    Brazilian-style steakhouses like Fogo de Chao started to attract attention in the U.S. about 25 years ago. It's taken a long time for one, from Spartanburg, to get to Asheville, and I'm sorry to say it wasn't worth the wait. The salad bar is a little odd, with some nice items but some from a can. The grilled meats brought to your table by "gauchos" (yeah, right!) are okay, but nothing that made us say "wow!" The beef certainly doesn't compare to that at a prime steakhouse such as Ruth's Chris. The noise level is very high, even though on a Friday evening at prime time the restaurant never got more than half full. Drinks are reasonably priced. Two of us paid $120 including drinks, tax & tip. Pleasant enough, but nothing to bring us back.

    love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

    We had dinner there with business associates. The service was fantastic. They ordered wine and loved it, but you could not order by the glass so we had to buy 2 bottles! Anyways, the prices were very reasonable and salad bar and meat was great. Only one round of filet mignon was raw and supposed to be medium rare. So raw it was chewy, not edible. That's the only complaint. All other meats and there were a lot, were great.
