    It is very loud at the restaurant and hard to hear your server. We were told no jeans to be worn at the restaurant, we were not happy to see most of the customers dressed in jeans or sweats as we were dressed up. The menu on line is not the same as they serve you so it was very disappointing.

    I was looking for a great place to dine with my wife, place where I knew that we will receive a great service and the food would be awesome. So I heard about this restaurant from a friend, he went there with his fife and really loved it. So I made a reservation on NaBrasa's website for 8:30 pm. When we pulled in the parking lot was pretty full, it was a Friday night and the restaurant was pretty busy. But there was extra parking right by the restaurant so it worked out just fine. The hostess in the waiting area where really friendly. They located my reservation in no time and invited us to seat at the bar while we wait for our table. We don't drink so we ended up waiting in the waiting room because we got there about 15 min early. We where taken to our table right on time of our reservation. We asked them to sit us where it was more private and they tried to accommodate us as much as they could due to being packed on Friday night. Out table was in the corner by the wall and we really appreciate that! The waiter was really great! He came over to introduced himself. He was absolutely opposite of a regular waiter! He was fun, really interested in us and what we wanted, and provided exceptional service. We made sure at the end to tip him for his great work! He showed us to the buffet where we had much great fresh food. When we sat back at our table we where instructed that if we turn over the tabs that we had on our table that would signal the guys that bring the meet out to come to our table. And for the next 25 minutes we enjoyed a really big variety of different meets that where brought to our table. What really stood out to us is that we had a few guys ask us what kind of meat we would like them to bring out, that's great service! We really enjoyed visiting NaBrasa and really recomend you to visit them and get a taste of great food and meet. You will definitely love it!

    We made early reservations (5pm) on a Saturday. It was the perfect time as things were quiet. They were very busy by the time we left. We had my 10 yr old son with us and he had a blast as well. It's great to not have to wait for servers or food. We were in and out quickly but never felt rushed. Our server Jordan was great! She was never pushy and helped with anything we asked for. She even brought out dessert with a candle just because I mentioned it was my husband's birthday in conversation. We'll definitely go back again.

    The restaurant is nicely appointed and the food was good. There is a nice selection whether you prefer more of a breakfast or a lunch. I highly recommend trying the baked pineapple as it was absolutely delicious. The only negative to our experience was having to wait 40 minutes past our reservation time.

    My wife and I took our parents out for their respective wedding anniversaries, they are one day apart. Food was excellent. Service was good up until dessert. Waiter got the wrong coffee orders and didn't bring my wife's dessert out. In his defense it got really busy by dessert time. Noise was excessive once the room filled so that didn't help. Overall good experience.

    My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary. Good was amazing, selection was so broad. Staff was knowledgable and friendly. I did notice we must have been our servers last table, towards the end, we were sitting and talking, trying to make room for more food, and our server came over multiple times to try to take my plate when clearly I still had food on it and was just taking my time, and enjoying my meal and my company. The restaurant was still crowded and it was only about 9:30. Kind of annoying but other than that it was great.

    On this most recent visit, we found the food to be exemplary as always. The service was good but not as attentive as we have seen in the past. Our waiter was pleasant and generally attentive, although he once completely forgot the drink refill he had promised. The gauchos were pleasant and efficient. We noticed that they did not circulate the usual variety of meats. The same guys seemed to come around with the same meats. Eventually, we asked if they had one style we particularly like, and they immediately sent it over. Finally, I had noted in the Open Table reservation that this was a birthday celebration. However, they did not acknowledge the birthday, even though we heard several other times when they performed the birthday song.

    My server was good. It was the men that come to your table with the meat. Our table was only visited one time with the beef. There was another room with a large group that got a lot of attention. Also, our reservation was for noon and when we got up to go to the stations there were empty ones. For example the scramble eggs were not replenished for 20 mins and the clams for longer. Will think long and hard about returning for brunch.

    I absolutely love this place. From the food to the service you cannot go wrong. Everyone is eager to make your dining experience one you will never forget. If your a first timer beware of the abundance of items on the salad bar. All which are fabulous, but you can definetly overload before the meats start coming. The filet mignon is like butter, melts in your mouth. The salmon is amazing, and I could go on and on. Nabraza Is definetly #1 in my book.

    Noisy. Really noisy was my first impression. Been here several times - this time the quality of the food seemed to be on the decline. Salad bar choices were not particularly appealing and the steaks just didn't seem up to the usual high standard - more chicken, pork choices, no filet! Disappointed this time.

    This was my 2nd time there. The waiters need to speak better English. It was obvious they didn't understand our questions, and we couldn't understand their answers. It was awkward. We were seated at a small, 2-person table, which felt like were were in the hallway, closest to the lobby. The lighting made the dining room seem dingy. The salad bar could haver had more of a variety. The last time I went, there was shrimp. None this time.

    My bf and I have lived within 5 miles of this restaurant for a long time, and are now realizing what we've been missing out on. Definitely bring your appetite when you come here, because there is TONS of great, delicious food! Of course you have the awesome selection of meat (pork, lamb, filet, sirloin, shrimp, etc), but then also there is a large salad bar with a ton of other "extras" including soup, salad, pasta, cheese/meat plate, ahi tuna, etc. We came hungry and were very satisfied with the service, the selection and amount of food we had, and also the price was reasonable, considering. We even had room for dessert and after dinner drinks! :) Highly recommend this place for a date night or a family get-together or large group party!

    It was my husbands birthday. Worst service in 30 years of going out to dine. Had to ask for water, and never came back to fill water glasses until waiting for our check! Constantly interrupted during our meal even though we had our "coin" flipped to no thanks. If you are looking for a leisurely dining experience and conversation with your dining companion, don't come here! If you are on the Atkins Diet, this is the place for you. Besides the so so bland salad bar, no vegetables come with your meal. We waited 40 minutes from the times we gave our credit card, to getting it back. If what you want is just meat and more meat, poor service, high price, then this is the dining experience for you. I say, take your $60/person and go elsewhere.

    This restaurant is different in that the main dishes (meats) are constantly being brought through the dining area and depending on whether your "button" says please stop or no thank you, they do. The people carve the meat right off the spit and onto your plate. The variety ranges from pork and chicken to filet and shrimp with everything in between. The food was outstanding with huge flavor, everything was perfectly cooked. Getting a drink or your water refilled is a task. I asked for a diet coke and finally flagged my waiter down 20 min. later to ask again and finally got it another 5 min. later. The other issue was that there was only 1 person serving shrimp and he never seemed to make it to our side of the room.

    Came here for a birthday night out. Fantastic beer selection. Speed of service was a little overwhelming at times, especially a little rushed selecting drinks. The salad bar was tasty and fresh, but the non-stop steak was the star of the show. So many return rounds of filet and sirloin, each cut just to the doneness we wanted! The chicken was a bit on the saltier side, and the pork tenderloin was a bit dry. Tableside salmon was also especially delicious! Stuffed and sated, our party of four shared the Creme Brulee and Chocolate Mousse for dessert.
