A word from Brazil Grill
WELCOME TO BRAZIL GRILL
Come & enjoy Portland"s Best Value in fine dining while experiencing Oregon's FIRST 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
  • "The food was good and they provided a lot of it. Lots if variety. It was a little pricey though. 4 people with 1 drink each and 1 dessert was over $200, including tip. It was worth a shot though."

  • "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."

  • "We like to bring friends here for an unusual or special occasion. The salads are varied and delicious, and are labeled. The decorations are ethnic an enjoyable to look at. Trying to limit the choices of the grilled meats that are brought on a long sword to our table was hard because there were so many choices an they all were delectable."

  • "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."

  • "We had a wonderful dinner date at the Brazil Grill. I love how the owner was present and helping people. He truly seemed to care that we enjoyed our experience at his establishment - he's adorable, by the way. The food was beyond wonderful. It was a very fun experience that we plan on having again and sharing with friends and family!"

  • "3 days later we are still talking about Brazil Grill. Every bite is perfect in the charcuterie style of serving...eat JUST what you want when you want it. Authentic Brazilian staff and owner make it just that much more special. We went early and it was quiet - but several large groups were arriving creating much more of a festive atmosphere by the time we finished. Fresh, healthy, hot, everything was perfect! We are going to have to make ourselves wait before going back so it becomes our 'special' place....and the grilled pineapple...OMG!!"

  • "Would not have known about this restaurant if my friend hadn't grown up in Sao Paulo and was longing for some food from her childhood. So I searched for Brazilian restaurants in Portland and discovered the Brazil Grill. What a wonderful dining experience. It is definitely not for the non-meat lover but my friend says that it is what dining out was like when she lived in Brazil. The staff was wonderful. Welcoming and friendly. The food was a meat-lover's heaven. Appetizers before dinner were different, tasty and included with the dinner. Space has the flexibility to accommodate large groups."

  • "This is our favorite restaurant for special occasions and it never disappoints. All of the food is superb from the salad bar offerings to the Churrasco brought to your table, even the desserts are excellent! Clearly, the owners and management have taken the time to develop ALL of the menu items and it shows the attention paid to details. From the Maitre 'D to all the service staff, everyone is very friendly offering a warm atmosphere for the evening and always asking to see if you wanted anything more."

  • "Our anniversary was ruined by choosing this place for dinner. The food was ALL cooked to death and it had hardly any flavor. The service was hit and miss, not to mention unapologetic about the food. The only thing we were served that was edible and cooked correctly was the empanadas and dessert. The owner should stop perpetrating this fraud of a restaurant on the public and open a food truck with empanadas and cinnamon glazed pineapples!"

  • "This was an unexpected find! My wife and I were surprised with the way the food was brought to our table. The salad bar was very good especially the black bean soup and the chicken salad. You have to experience this restaurant."

  • "What food we was able to try was good. We were told they had 11 different meats. We were only offered 4. We asked to try pork several times to the servers and they only smiled and walked away. We were offered steak tri tip about 10 times. Our drinks ran out and we never got them filled as our waiter never returned after taking our initial drink order. Had to find our waiter to get our check and we expressed our disappointment but he was unphased as our experience seemed to be common."

  • "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."

  • "I love Brazil Grill, I've celebrated my birthday there twice (including this day) with family and friends. It's just a great place to celebrate special occasions! I will be back!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "This did not turn out like we thought it would. It was our daughters birthday and from "some of the reviews", we felt it was worth a try. First of all not all the items are offered, second the meat is over cooked, and the salad bar is limited. I know some restaurants are cutting back during these slow times and if this is the case, the price needs to be adjusted too. We felt we did not get food that was worth paying $38.00 per person and if you are a party of 5 they automatically throw in 18% gratuity. Very expensive for inexpensive food."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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!!!"
