    I visited with a party of seven after a previous visit with my wife that was very good. This time, the service was sub par. I never was served a dinner roll and my wife and I didn't get our drinks until late in the meal, 45 minutes after arrival. On the plus side, the salad bar is excellent and the meat entrees were generous. Overall, though for the money, I expect more.

    LOVE the pineapple!!! Absolutely my fav! The only thing I didn't like was that the only chicken was wrapped in bacon and there wasn't an option to not have it wrapped in bacon. Plus the tables are way too entirely close together. As expensive as that place is you would think they could upgrade to a more spacious location. Food was good, though!

    The grilled meat and pineapple at Brazil Grill was phenomenal. It is a great model for restaurants because there's little waste, but plenty of food for any appetite. The salads at the salad bar were also top notch. We will definitely come again.

    Unique and fun to have someone continually bring you meat until your stomach can handle no more. The concept was a great conversation for our table. Service was fantastic and there was plenty of food. If you leave here hungry you are a vegetarian. The salad bar was very diverse. They claimed to have 12 meats the night we visited...the same 9 kept coming around repeatedly so 3 appeared MIA. The prepared meats all seemed to be along the same flavor palate. Nothing really jumped out at our party as being special in the flavor department but all were good. The BBQ'd pineapple was fantastic and we had a couple of goes at it instead of dessert. This was fun but for a similar price/conversation point dinner we will likely go back to fondue.

    My husband always says, "No meat, no meal!" Well, he got his meat! Their salad bar is unimpressive, but honestly I believe the experience is about the different kinds/cuts of meat. Tri-tip, filet minion, bacon wrapped chicken just to name a few. Oh, and the cinnamon baked pineapple is to die for! You won't be disappointed if you come to eat meat. :)

    Definitely a lot of meat. All yummy. Favorite was the beef. Do ask your waiter/waitress about the sides. We only got the polenta but watched all other tables get empanadas and rolls too. Why didn't our waitress offer that?? Especially when it was our first visit. We'll probably try again now that we know better.

    My family's all-around experience was truly outstanding. The gauchos and our server were very polite; they kept coming back to provide more meat (yes, I had eight different types). The pineapple was out-of-this-world. The salad bar had very unique items. The price was a bit much for our family, but we knew it ahead of time. For what we got, it was reasonably priced compared to other similar restaurants. For a special occasion, I would highly recommend Brazil Grill. Thank you to all of you who work there.

    Had another great time and experience at Brazil Grill. As always, the food was delicious and expertly prepared to perfection. I did notice a new menu design along with a new higher price but it is still a great bargain for the dining experience that they provide. The meats and salad bar offerings are always great and delicious. The only issue we encountered was a booth seat spring had become misaligned and the server asked us to move to the next booth over while he repaired it. Other than that, we had an overall great experience. One thing to consider, we like to arrive early (about 4:30 pm) to get a good booth but they don't start bringing out the meats until about a little after 5 pm. Highly recommended as always.

    My husband and I celebrated our 4th anniversary at Brazil Grill. It was our first time there, and we loved it! They have a wonderful salad bar, and nice appetizers. But if course, what makes the experience is the meat! They so have many delicious choices, that are all amazing!! And then there is the pineapple, I don't know how to explain how wonderful the pineapple is, but it was by far the best thing we have ever eaten!! Brazil Grill is a must go, if you haven't already!!

    Brazil Grill is the place to eat if you LOVE meat. However, all of the dishes we ate were exceptional; including the salad bar choices, the parmesan encrusted fried polenta and the empanadas. At the turn of our disk, a plethora of assorted meats were brought to our table, including seasoned lamb, shrimp, bacon covered chicken, sausage, tri-tip steak; just to name a few. All were amazing but I must say my favorite was the seasoned lamb. It was melt in your mouth good. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys partaking in the full meal, all you can eat meat and salad bar but with the added twist of high quality food. It was not about the quantity but was really about the quality. I give this lovely restaurant an A+

    I visit Brazil Grill very often with family/friends and work. The salad bar is full of amazing food, as well as all the wonderful flavored meats. The service is full of friendly smiles/helpful staff. We have never once left there with an empty stomach. On that note, I want to address the person FROM GLAM TO SHAM As a community we are blessed with great restaurants and wonderful bright people to work in these places. It is a shame you feel the way you do, sounds like this time was not want you wanted but as I stated we go at least once a month and have not ever run into any issues. It also sounds like you have not until this occasion, for those people out there who have had great experiences wither first time or 100th time, don't ruin it

    I was lucky enough to be a customer of this place when it first opened. I received complementary service and amazing food.. This is what I had been hoping to receive on my latest visit... After preaching to my Girlfriend about the amazing food we would be eating I was vastly disappointing with what we were in store for. Restaurants Like this thrive on quick service.. They provide a button to flip from red to green. Green for food, Red for no food servers bring them over and cut you off a piece. yet when we went there was 1 waitress and 2 servers for a place that makes you flip a coin to red to slow down. We never actually had a use to flip the coin.. Service was so terrible after a 1h45m we left still hungry having spent 80$

    My husband took me here for my birthday and for some reason everyone else was celebrate to. The food was great, something different from the norm. We brought children and they did not have a problem with it, in fact they gave them balloons. It was great and relaxing. No pressure. I like that you got to eat everything for one price. You didn't have to try to decide what you wanted or how much it was going to cost. If you didn't want something no pressure.

    World class service - friendly and fast. Endless food from the salad bar. Endless meats of every description brought to your table until you just can't eat another bite. Killer desserts. Great alcohol selections. Took my son-in-law and his brother for a birthday bash and all three of us were perfectly satisfied with not one single complaint. Even if you are not extremely hungry, the caliber of the food would be well worth the price. But if you have any decent appetite, you just cannot beat this place. One fixed price and you can literally gorge yourself. So they get TOP MARKS for both the quality (you must try the bacon-wrapped chicken!) and the quantity. JUST DO IT!

Do not eat much before coming here, you will need the room for all the amazing food they serve here. The pineapple was my favorite, talk about delicious! The service was exceptional.

    Service was perfect. Not intrusive yet responsive. Food choices were many and all delicious. The meats were all done to near perfection. The tri-tip was tough but this is the only negative I have to say. Never had ham that would melt in your mouth until now. Would have liked the option of more garlic rolls.

    It was not a bad experience with the roving meat servers but noting really stood out as great food. Trying all the options made you so full it was not possible to go back to something you liked. If you did like an option the portions would be too small to fill up and it would take a long time to get them back enough. At $35 per plate I don't think we'll be going back.

    Our group went at the 8:30 time to take advantage of the discount. I don't recommend it. The chicken legs were dried out as well as the hearts. They provide this discount to clear out the left over food. Shoot for the earlier discount time. They were totally out of lamb. But the host made up for the shortages by giving us a few free desserts. The beef was very beefy and served mostly medium to Med rare which was perfect for me. The shrimp was great as well as the bacon wrapped chicken and ham. The pork loin was OK. As per every other review the pineapple was delicious and the key lime pie, creme brule and chocolate mousse were very good too.

    The staff was great and the food was good. They really need to change the salad bar. It's kind of boring and not that great. The grilled meat was excellent however. I still have a issue with the price. If the plates were $25 instead of $40 my family and I would go more often. If you have a vegetarian in your group this is NOT the place for you.
