A word from Brazil Grill
Come & enjoy Portland"s Best Value in fine dining while experiencing Oregon's ONLY authentic Brazilian Steakhouse or "Churrascaria". Our reasonable, fixed price menu means you get to select from our freshly made, Brazilian-inspired salad & side bar, which includes vegetarian & gluten free items. Our traditional "stop-go" system allows you to decide when you are ready for you next course, by turning the disc on your table from red to green. Skewers of deliciously seasoned, rotisserie meats are then delivered to your table by roving gauchos eager to please your palate. YUM! Save room for our cinnamon-sugar roasted pineapple at the end of the meat rotation. If you like pineapple you will think you've died & gone to heaven! SO GOOD! We also offer desserts, a full bar menu specializing in Brazilian cocktails, wines & brews. So come in, relax, celebrate the day with a "Caipirinha" Brazilian national drink & DINE LIKE NEVER BEFORE.

Diner Reviews
  • "I have been to other Brazilian Grills and was amazed by their quality of meats and variety. This one had very few choices and poor quality meats -nothing special and the salad bar was a zero! There we no potato or pasta options, to go with the meat. Very disappointed that I suggested, to my friends, that we meet there for dinner. I made the reservations based on my previous experiences with Brazilian Grills. I was embarrassed -actually, since I am a five star chef myself. Would NEVER go back -or - recommend it to anyone. Service was rushed and impersonal. They act like robots..in a hurry."

  • "The food was really good. Lots of variety. The only issue I had was making a reservation online. I got a confirmation email and everything, but my reservation was lost upon my arrival. If you don't have a reservation you will most likely get stuck with a cramped table right up against the wall. Other than that, our waiter was really attentive and if we want to taste something specific, he made sure to send it our way."

  • "The food and service are incredible. The salad bar has so many wonderful and unusual choices it was hard not to eat too much. When the meat started to make the rounds I just wanted to find some more room in my stomach somewhere. The pineapple is now a recurring theme in my dreams."

  • "This place is wonderful. The food is some of the best I have every tasted and the staff is so freindly my wife and I were smiling the whole time. We went for both my wife's birthday and our 1st year anniversary it was incredible. The meats are so tender they almost melt in your mouth. I only wish we could go more often."

  • "For the price and hype of dining there, the atmosphere is very dull.....We went there for my son's 22nd birthday and were thinking it would be a fun place to take the family....(like going to Benihana's) We mostly were disapointed in the ambiance of the restaurant. The food was just Ok, although some of the beef was delicious, the chicken was dry and when you first get started going to salad bar you need to know that those dishes there are your side dishes as well. We thought they would be coming by with some more food besides the meat but they did not. It's kinda small in there to have to be getting back up to eat more sides if you want to go back to salad/side bar. The service was outstanding though, I must say!"

  • "Our family likes personal, quiet and content birthday dinner and this restaurant has it all. Food is excellent and their warm special treat for the birthday boy is always a pleasure. I really like their lime pie and pineapples on top of everything."

  • "The Brazil Grill is a fun and unusual experience for those who love to try a variety of meats. Served by gauchos bearing the meats on swords brought to your table, the experience is half the fun but the meats were all excellently prepared and very tasty. There is a wonderful salad bar with a variety of salads and soups. One can opt only for the salad bar for a reduced price, making it possible for groups with a variety of food preferences to dine there. The servers were all friendly and welcoming, attending to us with regular frequency, but not so much as to be annoying. And the grilled pineapple is absolutely fabulous!"

  • "We were very excited to go to Brazil Grill. The variety was understanding, and for the most part, the food was outstanding. However, some of the meat choices were a little dry and over cooked, like the chicken wrapped with bacon and the filet with bacon. These with bacon u would expect to b moist. The service was fantastic. Not to b missed is the grilled pineapple!! Would we go back---YES! It was a great nite, not for routine dinner out, make it something special."

  • "Third time here and the food and service is always great. I'd recommend that they get rid of the first table by the door. This is where we sat on our most recent visit, a seven pm reservation, and it's loud and busy do to the patron traffic and it may seem you don't get as much meat service sitting so far away. It was a slight disappointment since our reservations were made a week plus in advance. But with that said WE LOVE this place. Go hungry and leave happy! The staff are all very nice."

  • "I went with a couple and we all loved it. The waiter/Michael is very good, friendly and always came to us with a smile. The salad bar is fresh and meat is well seasoned and its non-stop/as long as your round thing is green. We even had chicken hearts...very good and something different. There is plenty of beef, bacon wrapped chicken and cognac marinated chicken...it doesn't stop....probably 12 different kinds of meat and seafood. Its all good. I recommend it for larger groups as they have these long booths that can seat ten I think, pretty unique. There was a lot of happy faces and laughter, good to see the staff working together and management genuinely concerned about our visit. It was super. I'll be back."

  • "Though the food is pricey, it is well worth it. Excellent salad bar and outstanding selection of meat items grilled to perfection. We especially enjoyed the grilled pineapple which was sweetened with the perfect spices to melt in your mouth. Excellent customer service from when we walked in to when we left. We will definitely be back!"

  • "OMG, we LOVE this place!!! Never been there before, but familiarized ourselves with the system from the website. That turned out to be unnecessary because our hostess was so helpful and freindly! We arrived a little early in the evening for dinner (it was my birthday) and I think we were the first ones there. The staff couldn't have made us feel more welcome and relaxed! The drinks helped, of course ;) they are absolutely DANGEROUS behind the bar! We loved it! The food is absolutely OUT OF THIS WORLD! Trust me: take the hostess's advice and go slowly with small portions. You will not believe how quickly you will get filled up! By every means, sample everything, but be careful! This is the place to go for a wicked case of MEAT STROKE!!!"

  • "My son and I came here for the fist time the other night for his graduation dinner. We were both truly impressed. When we first arrived we were greeted by smiling faces, the entire staff was friendly and helpful. I believe it was the owner who went around checking on tables to make sure customers were happy and enjoying their meal. The food was Amazing. My son said that some people are wine connoisseurs, he is a meat connoisseur, and he has to learn how to make this!! He was in Heaven!!! We both ate until we were completely stuffed, which I Never do. I would totally recommend this restaurant. We'll be back and bringing our friends!!!"

  • "I wished they had made or anniversary special. I noted it in the reservation but they never acknowledged it. We do not get out often with 2 kids. The food was great but being that it was our anniversary I guess I expected I free glass of wine or desert or something. The owner however, was charming and that alone would keep me coming back. He was very passionate in his business and his customers. Something was a miss on the anniversary aspect. I wish it would have been acknowledged at the least."

  • "The concept is novel and fun. The food is quite good, especially the fejoada (Brazilian black bean soup with pork) and the grilled pineapple. It is a lot of food, but at least you, the diner, can control the pace of delivery with a red/green system."

  • "We enjoyed very friendly and personable service yet without unnecessary interruption. The cocktails were delicious and the salad selection will easily placate the vegetarian in your group. As for the meat on a sword...simply remarkable! A great selection from several different animals, all cooked to perfection with no fear of using bacon. And then the cinnamon pineapple rotisserie thing...ooh boy! Truly my kind of place."

  • "Brazil Grill is the first Brazilian BBQ place we've been to in Oregon and I was a less than impressed. There were 12 different options which was the best part about it. No one meat in particular was spectacular but the ability to eat 12 different meats was certainly fun. The chicken was dry, the filet mignon was embarrassing, and the mustard glazed beef was confusing. The Lamb on the other hand was the most succulent lamb I've ever had. The service was friendly and responsive. The ambiance seemed dingy for the amount we were paying. This is the most expensive meal we'll eat all year, I was hoping for enough light to see our food and faster busing service (it's a buffet, your table gets piled with plates). Good but not worth the price. "

  • "I took my brother to Brazil Grill, and we both had an excellent time. The food is great, the staff was friendly and attentive, and we really enjoyed ourselves. Originally, each of us planned on eating almost only meat (we're both on Atkins), but the salad bar had some really interesting and delicious options, so we dove into those as well. Topping it off, the grilled pineapple is AWESOME!"

  • "I arrived quite early, but they were ready. The hostess/waitress was extremely friendly. As our group of 9 arrived over about 15 minutes, each one was greeted, shown to the table, and asked what they wanted to drink. The salad bar was really good. The meats brought on skewers were ABSOLUTELY MARVELOUS!!! Plenty of variety, each one superbly cooked. The filet and chicken wrapped in bacon was great. The pineapple was a huge hit. We truly enjoyed ourselves. I would definitely recommend Brazil Grille to anyone."
