A word from Tradicao Brazilian Steakhouse - Bay Area
Just like in our name, Tradicao, we stay true to the foundations of the traditional Brazilian churrascaria.



The experience is split up into two parts



Part 1: Salad Bar - After being seated, guests can help themselves to our gourmet salad bar stocked with more than 30 fresh items.



Part 2: Meat - At each of our seats, we include a coaster with a red side and a green side. Once back at their table, guests can start signaling our gauchos (meat servers) by flipping over the coaster to the red side. This indicates that the guest is ready to enjoy the 13+ succulent meats, which include lamb, beef, chicken, and fish. As an accent to the meat, we provide five delicious side dishes.

    Our dining experience began as soon as we were sat at our table. Our reservations were for 5 pm, which we arrived pretty much on time, if not a few minutes early. Of course we were sat right away. Our server, among many that visitd our table that eveing, came and greeted us, took our drink orders, and said we could go to the salad bar. Salad bar was fantastic!! I could have had a dining experience beyond all expectations just with the salad bar. Then the meats started immediately after turning our red thingies to green... everything was pretty much outstanding, with the exception of having lamb readily available. I had to ask for it everytime, then had to wait for it, then, only got 1 chop. Like it was being cooked to order.

    Several of meats served were not seasoned to give much taste, the specialty Brazilian cut was disappointing. Parmesan Chicken was the worst as it tasted mealy like it had been frozen multiple times. House wine was fair but overpriced. Was wife's birthday dinner and it was very disappointing especially after you pay the overpriced final bill

    After dining at several other Brazilian eateries we decided to try this one because it was close to home. The atmosphere was nice, the salad bar was nice and the guys bringing the sliced meats were nice. Our wait staff was attentive and kept our table clean. The hostess at the front was super polite as if we were walking into a fine dining experience. That quickly changed when we were greeted by another host who addressed our table as me and him will be waiting on you. We giggled....The lead waiter was attentive and like I said kept the table clean and our glasses full. The other thing we noticed was that one of the waiters was bossing (could have been Mgr.) the staff out loud in front of customers by the salad bar.

    The is a very diverse salad bar from which you could easily make a meal, but the main event is the wide variety of grilled meat and a few seafood options. All were good. They try offer different doneness when they can (from rare to well done) on certain cuts. The only potential drawback (beside eating too much), is now everyone at the table must order the same menu option (e.g the full menu for $45 or a menu of a few less meats for $35) which wasn't what we originally intended. However, I can understand why from the restaurant's point of view. Our waitress was new and still learning, but other than that the overall experience was good. Come hungry.

    The restaurant reservation was at 7:30 p.m. We arrived 10 minutes early and they were gracious in seating us right of way. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. The salad bar was stocked to please. The meat delivery was timely and each cut of meat was served hot off the skewer. It was a pleasure dining at this facility. We celebrated my husband's birthday with a candle lighted dessert. Nice touch to end the night. Thank you!

    The food was absolutely delicious. There are many great selections of all kinds of juicy meats including shrimp and bacon wrapped scallops, which were my favorite. The cheese bread was also outstanding. It was always fresh and hot. The service was also great. The servers were always very attentive and made note if we wanted our meat well done or not. Overall great restaurant. Well worth the price!

I would and will recommend Tradico to all my friends and I have done this as well. We think it is great. If you go away hungry it is your fault and not theirs.

    My husband and I were very excited to try this restaurant and we were not disappointed! They had great cocktails- we tried the Tradicao Tea and Raspberry Chocolate Martini. The salad bar was big and had great finds like salmon ceviche. The meats for the main course were excellent and they just kept on coming! The meal included sides (mashed potatoes, rice and fried bananas), but we hardly paid attention to them because the meat was that good! Their fried bananas were excellent, though, I must say. And we did have a little dessert plate- a cheesecake duo that was also fantastic. We can't wait to go back!

    My dining experience here was mediocre at best. I felt that it was over priced for the dining that we experienced. If you you are going to advertise the same level of dining that could be experienced at Texas de Brazil or Fogo, and charge comparable pricing, I would expect you to be able to provide a comparable dining experience. This place is no where near what the other two deliver. I was extremely disappointed to say the least, we will not be going back. I rate this dining experience about or on the same level as a Golden Corral.

    Absolutely everything was great about this place. The salad bar was great.... all the meats were delicious. The strawberry ice cream dessert I had at the end of the meal was out of this world. It was a mixture of ice cream and smoothy. I would highly recommend Tradicao Brazilian Steakhouse to everyone. You will not be disappointed.

    Spent our 45th anniversary here "on a whim", looking for something different. Turned out to be a great choice! Food was great and lots of it. Not a beef or red meat eater, so more white meat chicken, etc would have been great, but salad bar was awesome! One time when servers were slow about getting back to table with meats so sat waiting: however, overall...fantastic experience. Thanks for the anniversary dessert!

    I found a couple of the meats to be overly salty, specifically the house specialty. But over all the filet mignon was excellent as well as all of the seafood. Lemonade is the best. The service is top notch. The best really. The salad bar is wonderful. Great selection of desserts. Tres leches is a favorite and did not disappoint. Looking forward to spending all of our future anniversaries here.

    My husband treated me to dinner for my birthday at Tradicao. The meat was delicious - the service however, was too much. The waitstaff hovered too much. It was an expensive meal and we were in and out in less than an hour - we had expected to be there for at least 2 hours. I was offered dessert before my husband had finished eating his meat. We asked them to back off a bit and got a bit of a frosty reception. Someone was at our table at least once every three minutes - and not always with meat, but to ask if everything was OK. We felt rushed and this spoilt what would have otherwise, been a delicious meal.

    Food was very good overall. The only one that did not have a great taste was the lamb. May have been cooked too long but needed some flavor. Was disappointed we were not offered shrimp since my wife is not a read meat eater and was only having salmon or chicken. Mentioned to the server she did not eat red meat so they should have planned better and brought the shrimp out. Never did receive any.

    So I chose this place because of its location compared to other notable Brazilian steakhouses. The location alone was worth the trip. The food was great! It would have gotten five stars except for a few choice pieces of meat that I did not particularly like. The staff is super friendly but kind of got in my nerves a bit with the constant "attention", but hey it's their jobs.I would definitely recommend this restaurant, but only a few times a year. That much meat can't be good for you lol.

    The concept is great so it is important to separate review of concept from restaurant. Service was too good. Even with red tile up we had waiters asking us what food we wanted and if everything was ok quite literally once a minute. Food was good but everything was over salted. Great meat doesn't need that. It was ok at first but a cumulative effect that grew. If your new to the concept you will like it but it can be done better.

    We went on Father's Day so the restaurant was a bit busy . The Waite staff was great. The waiter came and apologize for not being able to help us at the moment . Instead of just letting us think he forgot , he came back and apologize for being busy which is understandable for a full restaurant. Everyone was polite. Great work staff .

    I made reservations for 6 at 5:30pm. We (3) arrived a little early and waited in the bar area which was fine, the rest of our party was running a little late. At about 5:20, we were taken to our table, without the entire party present. So we waited for the rest of our party at the table, awkward! Servers must have been confused, as we had to explain to about 4 of them that we were waiting on the rest of our party. While waiting we noticed and killed at least 4 little gnats that were around our table. Other than that the service and food were alright.
