  • "The service was horrible.The server was nowhere to be found when our drinks ran out and we had to wait and wait for refills,along with the fact of her English was horrible and we could not understand her.It was the first and last time we will ever go there. The meat was salty and over seasoned and the pork smelled weird.I am very disappointed with my meal and for that price I expected better"

  • "We stopped here for dinner after a hockey game (the arena is very close), after wanting a reason to try this restaurant for some time. The salad bar was adequate but would have benefitted from some fresh fruit. Meats were fine but inconsistent (some were excellent and some were not to our liking). There are other rodizio options in town, some more expensive but well worth it and some priced the same but with better food and a better ambience. This is an adequate option, especially if you're in the area, but not worth heading to as a destination. If you decide to go, review their website because there are options other than the full rodizio that are not on their menu. For example, they offer a "salad bar only" option."

  • "This Brazilian steakhouse was the 3rd different Brazilian steakhouse I have been to. I would never return. Compared to Chima's in Fort Lauderdale the salad bar and steak offered was horrible. Waste of money."

  • "Our first time here was a most pleasurable experience. The salad bar was endless with a great selection. I had the veggie soup which was a tasty puree. The meats were so juicy and tender beyond our expectations as well as the servers were spot on Although the price was a bit steep was well worth it adn we will be sure to return."

  • "Our experience was an unnecessary disappointment. The service was less than poor. Empty water glasses Throughout meal. Although you have servers attending To the table to offer meat no one communicates for other Needs. It was frustrating and unnecessary. The server didn't explain the menu or lack of until questioned. Didn't offer coffee of ask if anyone cared for a after dinner drink. The check could of easily been increased but terrible service Didn't allow that. Never again. Terrible experience"

  • "Visited the place for the first time on valentines day, and probably wont be back on a busy night like that. They claimed to have 15 different meats however my wife and i only tried 3 or 4 and the sad part is the pineapple guy never came around (pun intended). Definitely not worth the money we paid. On the flip side caipirinhas and beans were good."

  • "Tables on Feb 14th were too close to each other. You shouldn't do that because the "privacy" for a conversation can be interrupted several times when the people in other tables is talking louder. Not good setup for the tables."

  • "Bad experience had to do with the fact that we went on Valentine's Day. Regardless, i think they should've been a bit more prepared for the amount of ppl that were going to attend. Waitress was never around. And if you're a first timer to this place, you might not even know that you're able to get up and serve yourself the selection of sides. Many guest just sat there not knowing what to do. They tried only giving us chicken all night It was about an hour and a half before i was able to try their signature sirloin steak. Which BTW was phenominal. At $60 a person for the holiday, yea that kinda hurt. I want to give this place the benefit of the doubt. We will visit again, just not on a holiday."

  • "This restaurant does not come close to competing with the other Brazilian steakhouses. The food was average, and that's the best part. The salad bar was much lower quality than the competitors. Worst, however, was the service and lack of management. Restaurants can certainly have bad days, it's clear the problems here are top down and endemic. Stay away and spare yourself an expensive and frustrating experience."

  • "I took my girlfriend here on this past Valentines Day. Making a reservation was simple through their website and when we arrived at the reservation time they had our table ready. They have a buffet in the center of the restaurant with salads, rice, beans, roasted peppers, and much much more. The steaks were amazing and they just keep coming around until you cant eat anymore. They also have lamb, chicken, and pork which are just as good. I will be going back to this place very soon and I recommend anyone to give them a try."

  • "I went for valentine's day. We had horrible service. The food was very slow to come out. We barely had any meat since they never walked by our table. We probably waited longer then actually eating. I was expecting a romantic night full of meat and an exciting Brazilian environment."

  • "Salad bar, so so. Meat selection, poor. Quality of service, so so. A mediocre attempt at best to be a rodizio / churrasqueria. The best item was the roasted pineapple. No papaya cream for desert. We will not return."

  • "My boyfriend and I visited Brazaviva for the first time on Valentines Day. The food was amazing. Great flavor, great portions, and they wouldn't stop coming with meat, which was my boyfriends favorite part. The staff were all very friendly and always available. However, I would NOT recommend this restaurant for a date night. The ambience is very open and since the servers kept coming back with more food, there was barely any room for privacy. This is a great place for dinner on any regular night, not on a special occasion. That detail aside, we will definitely be returning for dinner. :)"

  • "The service was very disappointing. This was my first time there. I had a party of 4 adults and 4 kids. 3 kids where 5 and under. I was told of the Valentines "Special" of 60 per couple. I had to drag the waitress to the table to get our drink order and we did not even get water till we literally grabbed the Carafe of water from another table. At the end after all 4 adults heard her say 60 per couple they charged us 60 per person even for the small children who where suppose to eat for free. To add insult to injury I was forced to pay 18% gratuity. Save your money. Avoid this place like the plague and if you want a Churrascaria drive south to Texas De Brazil. DO NOT GO HERE!"

  • "Dined with the girls during a weeknight.... No designated bartender.. some ladies arrived early and sat at the bar for a drink and it took over 10 minutes for someone to get order and serve... No other patrons were at the bar. The dinner was excellent. Plenty of selections and excellent service."

  • "We are regulars at TDB and decided to give Brazaviva a chance and we were delighted. You come to a place like this for the meat, meat and more meat. All the cuts were perfectly cooked to our liking and/or request and the meat was top grade. The service was impeccable and we felt like we had our own personal waiter. The side dishes and salad bar were very good as well as the deserts; had the papaya cream with blackberry liqueur. This place is a keeper and we'll be back very soon. Great job Brazaviva!!!!!"

  • "Had reservations for 7:30 on a Friday evening was surprised we were seated right away even though they were full and had a couple of large groups. Our waiter was very nice as were the gauchos. Very promp service. Good wine selection with a wide mix of prices. Food was very good, salad bar is smaller than other restaurants of this type but other than that Brazaviva was wonderful, great food, not as pricey as the others and closer to home. Definitely recommend it and we plan to return."

  • "A group of us were in town for new years eve and really wanted to try something different. We searched the Internet and chose Brazilaviva. Upon our arrival it was very busy. We had to wait past our reservation but that was to be expected anywhere. Once we sat we were treated like family. Food justice started parading our direction. We servers asked us how we liked our meats and proceeded to forfill everyone's request. We can't wait to go back!"

  • "I made a reservation here for New Year's Eve dinner with a few friends. The on-line booking was convenient, but the system has problems. I called the restaurant to confirm and they did not have the reservation, but they did work us in. The salad bar was fresh and the group liked the variety. The variety of meat and overall it was very good: sausage, filet mignon, sirloin , lamb, pork loin. Two that could use improvement are the ribs and prime rib. The grilled pineapple was excellent. The service was very good and the group would all go back. The quality was better than a similar argentine steakhouse in the area."

  • "I have been in Chusrrascarias many times mostly in Brazil. This is an excellent attempt to emulate one with a restricted meat offer and a small but well stocked salad bar and not so well hot bar. It is a very pleasant experience: good meat, good cuts, and a beautiful ambiance. The problem lies on the table manners. When you are in a churrascaria, normally you produce a lot of side cuts that you are not going to eat and that fills the dish. What they normally do is one large dish and a smaller one for your rejects, so you always have a clean dish. Not here. Also, they only have one size plate and when you go for refills you have to re-use your dish instead of using a clean and smaller dish. Excellent place, nice people, I fully recommend it."

  • "Oura family reunion was a big disappointment for all who dined.If you are looking for a rodizio style Brazilian steakhouse this is not the place. . Upon first entering there was a bad smell which was offputting. The server pushed alcohol relentlessy and rec'd a pitcher of lemonade- shock- $25 on bill! Only steak, sausages and chicken but no lamb, salmon, seafood or ribs. Buffet understocked and meh, nothing remarkably tasty. Not replenished . No BREAD on buffet until halfway through meal. rodizio servers brought same meats and then disappeared as if to tell us the service was over and get out. Charge for desserts but server doesn't make that clear. . Don't try here if you've never had this type of cuisine it will ruin it for you."

Because it was a military retirement (22 years with the Navy) there were some extras that were needed and the staff and managment went out of their way, The food was incredible, and everyone had a great time. Thank you for making this peice of my husband's retirement perfect!!"

  • "This restaurant is great, my family and I were having a great time, and really enjoyed the food and the service. But when the bill came we were surprised at the fact that the $35 per person does not include the desert. Also the water was $5 per bottle. If I ask for water I assume it's free, never did I say I wanted water from a bottle that costs $5. We were misinformed when we asked how the restaurant works, we were never told that the water or the desert were apart from the $35 per person. This is why we would never go again, for being so misinformed."
