    my aunt and uncle were visiting us from Baton Rouge and we decided to take them for a unique dining experience that they never had. It was shrimp month in October and they loved everything from the food, shrimp, service and the overall whole experience. My wife and I have been here many times and needless to say the next time my aunt and uncle visit we know where to take them.

    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.

    Went for brunch on a Sunday. While the roving selections of different sausages were quite good, the breakfast options were a fail. The waffles were over cooked as was the omelet from the omelet station. The eggs benedict were rubbery and flavorless.

    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.

    If you are a total meat lover who doesn't mind that your conversations continually get interrupted with food service, this is the place for you. Personally, I chose the salad bar only and was not impressed with the quality or taste of the food. My family said the regular meat only menu was okay. Really, it depends what you want in your dining experience. So, weigh the price per person against what it is you want out of your visit.

    This is a family favorite. We've enjoyed both brunch and dinner multiple times. It's lots of fun, especially if you like to eat. Dinners are for meat eaters, lots of options. Brunch offers fewer meat choices, but lots of other options (fruit, eggs, waffles - Cheese Blintzes were a treat - and the desserts were great!). We love that we never feel pressured to leave, since we usually take our time and enjoy all the options. We have always made reservations, since they can be crowded, and feel it's a good value for our dollar.

    This was my first time dining at NaBrasa and also my last. The meat selection was tasty as well as the salmon which was delicious. However, we had to wait at least 25 minutes for the side dishes to be served after asking servers repeatedly where they were. To add insult to injury I did not enjoy any of the side dishes with the exception of the fried bananas which were amazing!! The salad bar was mediocre and I never received my salad dressing so I never ate my salad. All in all the experience was lackluster but hey the birthday girl loved it so I guess that's all that counts.

    I went here with a group of 7 (most had never been to a Brazilian steakhouse before) and I was bummed they didn't get a great experience from it. The meats were very good but the starters and sides at the buffet were pretty lame. It was mostly cold salads slapped together. At $45/pp you expect more. Other Brazilian steakhouses I've been offered hot sides that completed the meal with the meats. I think there might have been soup but that's it. I was also disappointed by the lack of ambiance - we were seated right in front of the buffet and it was so loud we couldn't hear each other. There was a bar/restaurant attached to this place that seemed much cooler. Wish we had gone there instead.

    We have dined at NaBrasa many times and always had a great meal. This time our food was great and our server Chris was outstanding. Our problem was the wine we ordered 2 bottles off the list the first choice took about 30 minutes to learn it was out of stock. The second choice also took a while to learn was not available. With a meal full of steak wine is a must. They need to update their wine list or their stock. They did comp our dessert for the inconvenience without us even asking. This place is too good to have a lackluster wine list. We will go back because the service and food are always good.

    this was my second time dining at the restaurant, needless to say I was very excited for my return. But maybe I was over excited, the meats were overly salty to a point where i couldn't have another bite. the salad bar and the service was great as my first visit. Overall I would recommend first timers to try the novelty of having all-you-can-eat-meats-served-tableside dining experience, but next time I would rather spend that amount of money on quality not quantity

    "Would you like sparkling water, or is just spring OK?" Our party of 5 was so used to the similar question "is just tap OK?" that we automatically answered, "Oh, just spring is fine." We didn't realize until 2 glass bottles of water were brought out that we'd fallen for a trick question. Our server later tried to bring us MORE $5-a-bottle spring water, but we quickly stopped him. A totally classless move, especially considering how much you're paying to dine here. The rest of the service followed in that vein: In terms of service, this is not even CLOSE to the level you might expect if you've dined at any other Brazilian steakhouse. Food was OK, but not nearly as good as other Brazilian steakhouses. Salad bar FAR inferior to others.

    There was no fresh mozzarella and tomato salad, no salmon made it into the dining room, and I would have liked to see more fresh veg less mayo salads. The meat was very good, but the salad bar was pretty much tasteless. I was thinking that it would be more like Fuego de Chao but perhaps a smaller menu. I also thought the website indicated desert was included.

    We tried NaBrasa when we couldn't get into our favorite Fogo. It's a sub-reasonable alternative....easier to get to from the suburbs, complimentary valet parking was a pleasant surprise. However, in terms of the total experience, it pales in comparison. The dining room is smaller and less impressive, and the salad bar is nothing to get excited about. because of how it's arranged, there's often a rather long line which snakes through the dining room. While the meat is good, it gets chewy as it cools. Also, the service on the drinks is rather slow and often forgotten. All in all, I'd rather pay for the parking and struggle with traffic to have the fantastic food at Fogo.

    This place is more about quantity than quality. They are quick and have good service. Alot of the food was average, with only the Top Sirloin steak tasting good. Everything else was just okay. The meat was way too salty. All the extra stuff they put on your table was just bad. The buffet was also terrible.

    Celebrated my 34th birthday. The quality of service was excellent. The meat offerings, though flavorful, were tired and boring. The salad bar was even more disappointing. Too many products pre-packaged or straight from cans, and floating in their own juices. If you're gonna offer canned roasted red peppers, how about draining them off before plating them? Interested in all you can eat meat? Skip this suburban steak house and stick to the 2 downtown establishments.

    We have dined at Nabrasa several times over the years each time we had a wonderful experience. This time, as the title of the review states, we were extremely disappointed. The salad bar was good and the service was excellent, the meat served however was awful. It was full of fat in almost every piece & several pieces were over cooked especially the Parmesan pork that seemed like someone rolled it on cheese after it was cooked. The beef ribs had an off putting flavor. I could go on but overall the quality of the meat was lacking. Please work on this problem. As we will not be returning you should worry about retaining customers.

    This was a wonderful dining experience! Not only does NaBrasa have an exceptional side dish bar, but it is so varied there is something for everyone! We came for an early dinner 5pm reservation. Had a short wait until our dining partners arrived and had a nice visit at the bar while we waited for the other couple who were held up in traffic. No rush, no problem, since we were early diners, we were waited on hand and foot. So much attention was given to us, that I would recommend the early reservation and that gives you even more time to just enjoy company and food. Loved it and can't wait to return!
