Nice place but didn't like that it's so tight to get to the tables past the bar and Buffett. We went for the Sunday brunch. Trying to get to the separate omelet and waffle bar was really weird and out of site that we forgot to get some of those. The momosa was super yummy.

Unfortunately for the staff, we were one of only 3 tables as the weather kept many people inside. Lucky for us though; we had impeccable service from our gaucho and server. The food was excellent as always. It is a pricy night out for a family of four but worth it for the unique experience.

Amazing staff- friendly and attentive. Delicious cuisine- salad/fruit/soup bar offers fresh variety.
Flavorful meat options and cooked to perfection.

Took my husband there to celebrate his birthday, it was quiet and intimate.

Would recommend to anyone that loves meat! ☺️

The atmosphere of the restaurant was outstanding. The food started off flavorless until my wife talked to the waiter. They only use sea salt on their food. After my wife said something about the flavor of the food, it came out tasting better, I do believe the house chicken was the best (can't remember the actual name of the entree). $61 for two for lunch and the food seems to be a great price. We got the lunch platinum deal.

The price of the meal was $58.00 each, with no dessert included, my husband couldn't even use the bathroom it was so dirty and gross, he attempted twice. For that price, and after drinks ($150) the bathrooms should be very clean if not spotless. Disappointing. And you should include dessert for that price as well.

We made last minute reservations for New Year's Eve and we're so glad we did! We had an amazing meat guy (sorry, I don't know the actual name) named Chris. He was very knowledgeable and kind. The pineapple is amazing AND the chocolate cake we definitely recommend. The meat was amazing and the Brazilian cheese bread was so cute and stellar. We will be back.

My boyfriend and I went for the brunch. The place was filled, but no overwhelmingly so. You could still have a intimate conversation without being over talked. The place is beautiful. The food was impeccable. The hot and cold bars were well stocked with loads to choose from. They also had a waffle bar and omelet bar. The meats that were brought to the table were delicious and well cooked. The only grip I have was that it was mostly chicken and the pork sausage that were being brought out. Only towards the end of our meal to we begin to see the steaks. They also do a complementary mimosa with brunch, which was a nice touch. At only 5 dollars a glass you’ll definitely want another. All in all it was definitely worth the price!

Best service ever had. Very nice and attentive. Never felt like we had to wait long for more meat, or like they were trying to keep us from eating more. Always ready to keep serving! Nice ambiance.

My family enjoyed the meat part of this experience. The buffet was lacking mashed potatoes and other hot sides. Lots of cold sides and one soup option. Very disappointing for our 242 dollar bill for 5 people and about 6 drinks.

We've been going to Brasa at least once a year for over 10 years. The experience has always been great until this year. Our main waiter was awesome. He did a great job. However, the food was not as good as in the past. The meats seemed fattier than in the past. The taste was good , the meat was just too fatty. We also found that some meats never made it to our table. I'm not sure why this was but it shouldn't have happened. Finally, we wanted to end the experience with the pineapple. We asked for it to come by our table but had to wait for 15 minutes.

We felt very rushed. There are stones on the table, you turn it on green when you want them to serve you meat. They kept coming, although our stones were turned on red. I had a big pile of meat on my plate, some were too rare for me, there was also a lot of fat on the meat.

Buffet is very good. I didn't like the meat from the skewers this time. Too fat. Next time I will only take the buffet.

I've eaten at Brasa several times over the years and have always enjoyed it whether for dinner, brunch, or at the bar. However, I'm not likely to go back anytime soon for dinner. We had early dinner reservations and were seated promptly and the waitress did a fine job attending to us. However, all the food was adequate but nothing worth the cost of dinner. Of course you can eat all you want and I suppose that is why is costs so much. It's like Golden Corral on Steroids... I can still recommend it for a nice Sunday brunch.

Was very disappointed. Made reservations and still had to wait 30+ minutes to be seated. Service was horrible. They advertised 13 cuts of meat and we were only offered 5, often waiting with empty plates for the server to come by. Definitely not worth the money although what we were offered tasted good.
