Diner Reviews
  • "Food was good but cold in the buffet, service was good but not the best where we were sitting"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I expected much more than I got. We went as a group of 8 around 9pm on a sat night. Food in buffet was soggy as if it was siting there all day. Meats took forever to come around to us and we barely saw chicken. Once. They were not busy so it seemed like they were not bothering to cook much rather just give us scraps leftover. We had to pick up our own dishes Bc the server barely came around and we wanted clean dishes. I expected some entertainment. No show. Nothing like copa cabana in niagra. Definetly wil not go back to Gatineau location ever."

  • "I am not going to say it was the best Brazilian BBQ I have ever had, but for the price they charged it was good. The service was great, very friendly and prompt...The only complaint I had was the selection on the bar, but they were right there with the meats, and lets face it, that is why you go there anyway...I would recommend this place for special occasions but remember to bring your own wine or beer if you would like to drink alcohol."

  • "Really disappointed we wasted our money! Food was ok service was slow but servers were friendly...definitely not worth the money we spent! Don't go!"

  • "Despite dinning at Ekko de Brazil the day Brazil got shellacked 7-1 by Germany in the World Cup, the ambiance was bright and cheery. We were greeted by a lovely hostess right away and shown to our table. The restaurant itself was painted in vibrant colours and very nicely decorated, just enough nick nacks to be interesting but not too much to be gaudy. The salad bar was full and nicely stocked with variety of veggies, rices and different bread treats. Onto the meat! This is what we went for. Wave after wave of different selections of meats, from bacon wrapped chicken to a delicious roast. I liked some more then others but interestingly enough everyone at the table had there different favorite. Location was on Greber in Gatineau."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "We came with a table full and no meat made it down to the end of our table, even with the green circle up. I paid 25 dollars for 4 very small pieces of meat. Was disappointed in that and how long it took to get clean plates. The dinning room wasn't full either."

  • "Great place for dinning wether it be for a birthday or anniversary. I give the taste and quality a perfect score perfect that's what it was. Servers were kind and helpful. Definitely a great place to try at least once."

  • "I love this restaurant and the concept. It has a great atmosphere, staff are very friendly and The food was great I cant wait to go back again."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Excellent food and set up. What I didn't like is how they seem to charge for everything, ex: coffee is not included and for a regular cup of coffee, it's rather expensive. The surprise was that you have to pay an additional $10/person for those birthday ceremony i.e a cheap mini cake, a Brazilian hat and the staff singing. This, in an age where most restaurants do it for free and it's not even anything special; needless to say, it felt like a rip off!"

  • "No complains about the food, just took too long to receive the meat. Waiters a Need to be much more observant for the green cards or they should change the display of green card. At some resorts they have the card displayed higher and more noticeable "

  • "It was our first time at this restaurant, the food was delicious, service and ambiance was A+ for my husband and I and we loved how we got to sample all the wonderful different meats they served. One tiny thing that should change but wasn't all that bad is adding another server for the meats, so that everyone can sample all the meats faster and less chance of missing a table. Other than that, this has become one of our favorite restaurant. A must try !"

  • "I m familiar with Brazilian resturants. This one is way below my expectations with Brazilian resturants. The service is very slow and they pass by your table without serving you. The food is not tasty at all. I don't see why I paid 35 dollars plus tax plus tip for just samples. You have to bring your own drinks."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We arrived 30 minutes earlier and we were promptly seated, no fuss. Waiters were very nice, friendly and accommodating. They made the occasion a nice outing for my family."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Went on a Wednesday night. Service was very slow. We've been to other Brazilian Grill Houses before and there was always lots of meat being brought around so your plate was often full. Here my plate was empty a lot. I'm hoping it was because it a Wednesday maybe on the weekend it would be better"

  • "We visited on mother's day, two adults two children. We've originally booked via opentable and that seemed to be a contentious point for them. We were given a table outside of the server area. He did not really take care of us and whenever we needed anything it was self-serve. Out of the 14 meats claimed, all that we could get was uncooked chicken drumstick and sometime cooked one. We called in another waiter to ask if there would be anything else and we receive, yes more uncooked chicken. I asked the young man serving if there would be anything else, we were told not really as they did not have anything cooked in the other meats. After another 30 mins we were presented with a piece of burnt something. Called the mgr without success"

  • "My boyfriend and I really loved the food and it was a verygreat experience. We will recomand that place to everyone who loves good food... and especially good meats ! Thanks for our romantic night and we will definitely come back !"

  • "The restaurant is nice in terms of decor. I enjoyed the salad bar. What I didn't enjoy were the meat selections delivered to the table. Maybe I'm picky but I enjoy lean cuts of meat that are cooked medium well. I do not enjoy blood swimming in my plate. Although they did try to find meat cooked to my specifications, most of the time they were unsuccessful. I did enjoy the lamb and some chicken items. What I would have liked to have seen was more fish or seafood. The only fish was salmon at the salad bar. Overall it was a satisfactory experience. If I do go again I will go to the Aylmer location as I hear they have more in terms entertainment and food choices."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The first time I ever visited the Ekko de Brasil was at the Aylmer Rd location and it was absolutely lovely. The look, the feel, the food, the music, the drinks, everything about it. I was excited to go back again. Unfortunately on the day my wife and I decided to go, the Aylmer Rd location was not in service for some reason so we booked reservations at the Greber Blvd location. It was ridiculously busy, impossible cramped, the wait servers were no where to be seen, half of the meat seemed so under-cooked it was almost too soft to eat. The biggest complaint though, the noise level was through the roof. It was so loud I could not hear my wife across the table from me and spent most of the night asking her to repeat herself."

  • "Great restaurant to bring friends to enjoy a great dinner. Loved the bring your wine concept. The staff are very pleasant and make you feel welcome. They do not rush you. Great selection of cheeses and side dishes. The ranchos with the meat often pass by the tables, so you ask for what you want. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Overall a really nice experience, the food was good and service also, I recommend it. It is nice that you can bring your own wine and even your own cake if it is for a birthday although they charge a minimal serving fee."

  • "My husband and I were very pleased with our dining experience. The service and the food were excellent. The choices were varied and everything that we choose was very good. I enjoyed the fact that I was in control of the portions and therefore could sample many things without overdoing it. I especially liked the variety of meat and the fact that I could choose some rare pieces. I loved the pineapple dessert, it topped off the meal just right. I left the table feeling satisfied but not overstuffed. The service was attentive yet not intrusive. I am recommending Ekko de Brasil to all my friends. "

  • "Le serveur nous dis "votre serveur va venir vous voir dans pas long, je ne sais pas c'est qui" Le même serveur revient la face longue et dit "ça a l'air que ça va être moi votre serveur , je m'en allais mais là il faut que je reste" ...! Super bar a accompagnement, bonne grillades a la table. Bon rapport qualité/quantité/atmosphere/prix. "

  • "Le service au début a été très ordinaire. Nous étions assis depuis déjà un bon moment avant que notre serveur vient nous voir. En fait, il est allé voir des clients qui étaient arrivé après nous...après cela, le service à été excellent. La nourriture dans le buffet chaud était tiède, même froide....par le temps que retourne s'assoir à la table, c'était froid. Plus de variété dans le buffet serait apprécié."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Different concept however way to expensive for the selection. $35/person. No choice of desert apart from pineapple that's included. Service was a bit on the poor side. Went on Sunday so wasn't busy. Food was tasty but not enough selection for sides at the buffet."

  • "We had been to the Ekko in Aylmer and had liked it but were a bit disappointed. We loved the food but found the service passable. We decided to try the Gatineau location for a family event. What a great surprise. The restaurant decor is beautiful, much more than the one in Aylmer. The waitress was extremely friendly and came to see us many times to make sure that we had everything we needed. The gauchos were frequently at our table with their selection of meat. The buffet was clean and replenished so that it did not feel like we were missing out on some of the items (which was not the case at the Aylmer location). We ate very well. The music was at a decent level that made for good conversation. The next day we woke up still full!!"

  • "My wife and I stumbled across this restaurant when looking online for a Brazilian steak house in Ottawa. We booked a reservation and header out later that evening with our 2 kids. The place was in a strip mall so we were a little concerned at first. However, once we were greeted and seated we felt very welcome as the service was very good. The host explained everything to us and how the system worked with the cards (green side up for more meat, red side up for no more). The food was really delicious, the meat (especially the beef choices) was awesome. The salad bar was also very very good. It was a Saturday evening and the place was jam packed and as you looked around the restaurant everyone seemed very very happy."

  • "I recently took my girlfriend to ekko de brasil for her birthday and was a little disappointed. I was expecting a romantic dinner for two but instead was greeted with a noisy restaurant filled mostly with diners in groups. We were actually given a booth for four instead of a romantic table for two when I had said in my reservation that I was bringing my girlfriend out for her birthday. Also I noticed that there was a quieter side of the restaurant filled with just tables with few diners and I could not understand why we were not seated here instead of with the noisy side filled with groups. Our waitress was excellent and the food was delicious however this is not a restaurant for a romantic experience for two."

  • "It was great. The kids (12 and 10) loved it. The service was great. It is expensive for what you get. I have been to a Brazilian Steakhouse in Orlando and the food was better. This food is good but not exceptional. Overall an expensive but nice night out."

  • "I regret going to this place. Poor service. Meat are off lowest possible quality, harden from continuous grilling unprofessionally. The only thing that may be positive about this place is the BYOB."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Food was fantastic, would of liked the beef to come by more often. Servers and staff were fantastic and friendly. Only the, I'm assuming manager, lacked good hosting/people skill. Would definitely recommend!"

  • "One would think that with no menu to explain, a self-serve buffet for salads and other fixings, and a host of valets walking around with skewers of meat, it would be a dream job for a waiter. Yet, service was poor. Another waiter than the one assigned to our table had to present the concept to us because ours was nowhere to be seen. Our waiter was still a no-show when it was time to order side dishes off the menu. Still a no-show when when when we wanted coffee with our deserts. And where was he when it was time to top up our glasses of wine??? Most cuts of meat were low grade and overcooked. We only saw what was supposed to be their best morcel once, and it was ok at best. The place was loud and many patrons were rather obnoxious."
