Braza Lena - Key West reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Perfection!

    We wanted something fun and different for our last night in Key West. The salad bar choices were outstanding. Everything I tried was delicious. I just took small amounts of everything because with 16 different meat choices, I knew there would be a lot of food coming around. Go for the full deal, you won't be disappointed. Our waiter even brought over a couple of things from the salad bar we missed and he was right on with the choices! The meat was cooked and spiced to perfection and melted in your mouth. You have to try the chimi churri sauce with the flank steak. My personal fav. We were so full but had to try dessert which we split between 3 of us. The perfect finale to our last night in the keys. Food was great, very memorable nite

  • Something Different in Key West

    If you've ever been to Key West you know that the majority of restaurants serve seafood. Braza Lena is an Argentine Steakhouse, serving fresh steaks, chops, chicken, pork, lamb that has been grilled to perfection and seasoned perfectly. In addition, they have an outstanding, large salad bar. You could just eat from the salad bar and be satisfied. The waiters come around to your table with all the meats, you chose when and what to eat. This place is pricey. For two of us our bill came to $115 that was with two non alcoholic drinks and an added 18% gratuity.

    We really enjoyed our dinner at Braza Lena. And what a stunning collection of Peter Lik photographs! Sallad buffet was terrific, meat excellent and the pinot noir priceworthy. It was a little empty at the time but we were very pleased.

    Salad bar was good...all of the meats were inferior grades, tough, overcooked, dry, and the marinated were flat...filled up on salad rather than try to digest the meats. Service was average for Key West.

    We have been going to B-Lena since the day it opened. Wish it was the same. It was the families favorite place to eat. It is just not the same as it used to be. Plain and simple. My kids who will eat anything. Actually said Dad I thnk we are done with this place. We used to be treated as royalty when we walked in. Knew every staff mebers name. Only original staff left is "Mataeo and Jr". Only they come over and say hello. So many Managers since Ari left. I think we saw one with pink hair the other night. Never came over.. Was not to to busy, she was standing around. Great place just wish the standards had not changed.

    A wide variety of meats, well prepared is the basis for this restaurant. They are attentive and customer-oriented, with a very well trained staff and welcoming atmosphere. Good salad bar/sides selection with some interesting offerings. The restaurant is large and well appointed. (Lighting could be better.) Good for groups. Great for a bunch of guys.

    Your typical brazilian rodizio. Salad bar selection was good. In my opinion not the best churrascaria but good enough for Key West. Our main waiter was quite attentive. Got an older gentlemen (a beef runner) with a little attitude but nothing major. I've been to many rodizios in Brazil and they are for the most part excellent (5 stars). I give this place 3 stars. And yes, a little pricey...

    1st time to a Brazilian restaurant but familiar with the concept. It was Christmas night but the restaurant wasn't as crowded as I expected. Restaurant had a very upscale feel; nice furniture, tablecloths, etc. Huge salad bar. 16 different kinds of meats with a mix of beef, pork, chicken, seafood. Service started well, but then got slow. Took 10 minutes for server to recognize we were done with dinner, then another 10 minutes for a simple dessert to arrive. But, as I wrote, it wasn't very crowded. Dinner for 2, no alcohol, 1 dessert...$120. If everyone AT&T he table eats a lot of meat then it's worth it.

    I went in as a single diner. The initial service was great but after that I felt forgotten. The couples and groups received much more attention. The food was wonderful. I would come back here again.

    The good: Not far from Duval St. Famously awesome meats, abundant salad bar. Great beverages, adequate wine menu. Ambiance is perfect for getting to know someone, bright enough to see the amazing art, dark enough to focus on each other. Our waiter was great, I left him a good tip. The not so good: No parking for the restaraunt itself. Dinner for two above $100 with drinks. My stomach hurt because it was so full. ;) Overall, I highly recommend this restaurant to all my friends.

    We made a 9:30 res on Saturday night. At 8:45 they called to ask if we could come on at 9:00 so that we could enjoy all that they had to offer. Well if we wanted to go at 9:00 we would have made our res at 9:00! We arrived at 9:20 saw very few people in the restaurant except a huge party that was having dessert. That should have been our que to walk out. Our waiter offered us drinks, but didn't even know about the drink I ordered. " we recently changed our drink menu and I guess I missed that one"! Huh, a waiter who doesn't know the drink menu when everything else is buffet or served by " gauchos"! It took 10 minutes to bring a glass of scotch from an empty bar?! Save your time and money and have a better Key West experience anywhere else.

    This was our first visit to Brazilian style steak house. Yes, the meats kept coming , we lost track after about eleven different kinds cut from huge skewers. The food was plentiful and well cooked. The salad bar was interesting and much needed to off set all the protein. We were too full to even attempt dessert. Peter our sever was helpful and attentive. The place was very empty for Key West so it felt a little flat. The meats came a little too fast for my liking, I hate a plate with too much on it at once. It was rather expensive for what we had but an enjoyable experience.

    Lots of yelling and screaming in the bar...dining area was quiet but bar area was annoying ( i guess the bar is a vibrant scene.) Salad bar and extras were excellent. Superior desserts. Only 2 of the meats were noteworthy: bacon wrapped filet and whole sirloin sliced at the table.

    I really enjoyed the variety of meats and especially the great cuts of beef. Cooked and seasoned to perfection. I enjoyed the "sampling method" and was very pleased at the quantity you were offered each time the servers/gauchos came to our table. The salad bar was outstanding not to mention the desserts, they were amazing. I shared the coconut flan with my date and we can't say enough about how delicious it was and we have eaten a lot of flan. The staff was very friendly and attentive throughout our visit. We will be going again. Glad to have this excellent restaurant in Key West.

    My Girlfriend and I spent a week in Key West. Had a great time but couldn't find a many upscale restaurants. We found Braza-Lena advertised in local papers and walked by it on Caroline St. As soon as we walked in we were pleased with the atmosphere and the greeting. there was modern photography on the walls and beautiful woodwork through out. We ordered a bottle of wine that was expertly presented and poured. The salad bar was amazing and the non stop delivery of delicious seasoned meats by the staff was fantastic. the coffee and Crème Brule was perfect. The Owner/Manager stopped by and personally thanked us for selecting the restaurant and offered more history and information about the establishment. This is a must do on in Key West
