Boi Na Braza - Cincinnati Ratings and Reviews
Just like any other Brazilian steak house. If you've never been to one, then its an experience. I would prepare to come hungry because it ends up being kind of like an upscale buffet. This is not the type of place I normally like to go. I'm more interested in cafes and small, local restaurants. However, I think meat eaters would be interested in the wide selection of meats offered. I thought the salad bar was also a fairly good value, although it appeared to be a bit more sparse than a lot of other Brazilian steakhouses.
What a lovely evening! Took my boyfriend there for his birthday and it was really neat. The salad bar..which features hot and cold food and more than you could want or imagine..was amazing. The varieties of meat and those serving them were really cool. It was just a really nice place to go for a special occasion.
This was our second visit and a great disappointment as compared with the first. Service was bad. Our table captain greeted us and then disappeared. We were in the restaurant for over 2 hours and only saw him again as we were leaving. Soft drinks came after we were finished eating. The food, while good, does not live up to the pricing. We won't be back.
The male who gave the speech about the food items spoke so fast we couldn't understand him. From what I read online supposed to have a variety of meats around. The meat did not come around very often. We requested chicken twice they brought bacon wrapped chicken and it wasn't good. It tasted like greasy bacon. The bacon was still soft. There were not many meats that came around. I got sausage and a sliver of filet. They were good. My husband dislikes pork and beef. So we kept waiting for more meats but they didn't appear. It was not worth $160. We each had one caprihanna and that was the best part of the meal.
I would suggest you look for a different restaurant than Boi Na Braza in downtown Cincinnati. Many of the chicken and pork cuts were dry, the molten lava cake was not worth $10 ( I would have preferred a Kroger Private Selection Lava cake), and I had the worst cup of coffee I've ever had. To finish my visit, I found there was absolutely no soap in the women's restroom to wash your hands, which left me wondering how the staff was washing their hands.
Food was good as usual. Unfortunately the service was terrible. I could go into a step by step diatribe but I won’t—it was just terribly disappointing. The one saving grace was a manger who came by the table and got unexpected detailed feedback. He listened and I hope he has since moved to solve the problem server. He did take $50 off our bill which was a nice gesture but we would have preferred to pay and receive appropriate service. Too bad.
This restaurant is fantastic. The food is bar none the best in Cincinnati. The service is fast, attentive but not intrusive. Because of the great service and food, you do pay a premium. But I highly recommend this restaurant for anniversaries and date nights. Well worth the experience.
In a word, unbelievable. Was our first time dining at a Brazilian Steakhouse and the experiences was second to none. We figured, since we drove 90 minutes to Cincinatti to see a show, that we would tack dinner on to our trip date - pretty sure the next time we go to Cincinatti it’ll be for dinner at Boi Na Braza and we’ll have to find something else to tack on.
Overall we always get a good meal as the food is plentiful. And most of the meats were very good.
However the Garlic Beef was a little tough.
The service though was slow as the waiter didn’t spend much time attending to the tables needs. And the bill took forever to come. The waiter was even surprised the bill never arrived (even though it was his job to bring it).
The salad bar was excellent. I would come for just the salad bar. The service was also very good. Only the bacon wrapped filly was good. All the other meats were very tough and some you couldn't even cut it with a knife. We had a party 6 and everyone agreed the same thing. The desserts were very good also.
I wish I could remember my waiters name, but he was amazing. The food is just wonderful. From the salad bar on steroids, serving salmon and hot dishes and every cheese you could imagine, to the variety of meats that wander the room, if you leave hungry, you are crazy. Heck, if you leave without a wheelbarrow helping you to your car, you did something wrong.
The service was spot on! The food was heavenly. The desserts were just amazing. It is a little pricey, but well worth the money. I cannot wait to go back!
This was our first visit to this place. It was very nice. We knew it was a little expensive, but had always wanted to try it.
The food was delicious. The salad bar was awesome. We didn't know, but you can order just the salad bar. The meats were delicious. Very well seasoned and in nice portions. Fernando was our waiter and was very attentive. My husband ordered a glass of the Chilean Cabernet and enjoyed it. We passed on dessert because we were stuffed, but they looked good.
We would go again.
Everything was great! It was our first time at the restaurant and the only issue was that we were under the impression that drinks and dessert were included in the price of each individual person. Needless to say we were in for a surprise when we got the bill!
It was a fun experience but I was disappointed in the meats which is what I was expecting to be the best part of the whole dinner. There was not any seasoning on the beef selections except for the garlic beef. I had to salt and pepper everything. Several of the beef selections were tough, they were so chewy that I chewed until I couldn't anymore so I had to spit it out. The lamb was the most tender and most juicy of all the meats but I had to spit it out immediately because there was a spice on it that was so strong with the taste of spearmint that it was disgusting. All of these experiences were the same for my husband as well. The salad bar was wonderful, way more than I expected, but we were very disappointed and let down from the meat.
A fun food concept where you get to overload on protein and enjoy a cornucopia of flavors. Large salad bar, fantastic meats (beef, chicken and lamb) but no vegetables which was surprising. Don’t worry, they keep serving until you are stuffed. None of us had dessert, needless to say. Delicious and ideal for large groups.
Absolutely fabulous! My husband and I went for our anniversary and could not have been happier. The food was divine, and there is ALOT of it. The service is attentive and very professional. We we're wowed! An excellent place to dress nice and go on a date. Just make sure you go hungry and make sure you aren't too shy to eat in front of each other.
Service was great. Everyone was very nice and very attentive. Some of the beef was a little fatty, the lamb had some bones but the parmesan pork was amazing. Salad bar had a lot to choose from. Save room for dessert. Cheesecake was tremendous. A little pricey but worth it if you're a meat lover.
We have been going to Boi Na Braza for over 4 years now, at least 2 times a year. great service, amazing staff, very high quality food. it is a bit pricey but when you are going for a big date or an anniversary, it is so worth every penny, can't wait till next time.
