The food was not seasoned and the desserts were not worth ordering especially that you had to pay extra! Will not be returning

The brunch layout was weird and stale. They were real slow with the meats. We bought the unlimited mimosas and they barely came to refill. Service was horrendous! The fruits were past ripeness. Overall would not recommended very expensive for what you get. They think they are slick by barely serving you but just awful

It was a horrible experience I had a 9:30 reservation they had me waiting until almost 10 o'clock to tell me that that he have meat. I would never recommend this place to nobody. The manager didn't even have the decency to come talk to the customers.

Had a Valentine's Day dinner here. The selection of meats was out of this world. Picanha was A+. Service was very good as well. A more intimate setting than Texas de Brazil, with vastly superior overall quality.

It was really nice to be there, the persons who take the meat were nice but I eat in one similar resturant on Madrid spain, braza y lena, and the meat there was constant one behind the other one, this one was too long btween 1 meat and other, but a beautifull place I will say one of the most beautiful in miami, the other but is the price, not really cheap but for one celebration day is ok.

I took a group of work colleagues who were in Miami for a meeting . They came from various parts of the country and many had never dined at a Brazilian restaurant. They loved it. The food was great. It was early on a Tuesday evening. Rey was superb and very attentive to the groupo and individual needs.

The salad buffet bar had a great selection..and the rodizio style meats also great tasting but very few and far in between. The service was extremely slow to come around and our main waiter hardly acknowleged us at all. No one smiles except for a manager at the end whom saw us still waiting for meats and made sure we finally got something. Perhaps they are still working out the kinks because it is fairly new to this area. Aside from that the food was very good for the Lunch special.

Very bad service. Meat was not as asked and reason given was that that was the way the cook their meats. We are old customers and this never used to happened. At the end, they took a very log time to bring the bill and again a very long time after we gave them the credit card. When I asked for a receipt again, they took so long that I could not believe it and called the manager who was not help at all. All he did was find excuses for the waitress.

This place is hidden away and I wish it could stay that way because I want it all to myself. Very good service/wait staff. Food kept flowing and they even took a special request in the kitchen. I'd go back with just about any number in my group. The night we went there was 6 hungry men ready to make it happen for dinner.

I have dined at this restaurant multiple times before this. This time was definitely a disappointment. This trip they offered a very limited selection of meats. We constantly had to ask for different and more meat. The leg of lamb was unrecognizable as such. It was burnt to a crisp and tasted like charcoal. Moral of the story -- if you go, go earlier rather than later in the evening! P.S. they did try to appease me with some chicken hearts cooked by special order which were very tasty.

Very disappointed with this place. Went on a Sunday night at 8:30 and the place was mostly empty. The meats were not good and the service was poor. Seemed like they were rushing us to close the restaurant. The salad bar is small, not too many options.

Great option in Doral. Salad bar was great with variety, they also have cheeses and the Brazilian rice was delicious. The variety of meats was excellent, I particularly loved the picanha and the roasted leg of lamb. The service was quick and good. Overall it was a good experience. I recommend this restaurant.

Service was horrible, had reservations at 9:30 did not sit until 10:30. Waiter had us sitting there for almost 20 minutes before coming up to the table to ask if we wanted drinks or inform us we had to grab plates from the salad bar. Inside is a very plain place, does not look nice at all, it feels as if you're having dinner at a banquet hall. Definitely not worth it.

They do not include anything with the price. The wine, the deserts, and the children's drink are all charge independently. The service is not the best you might expect for the price you are paying. I'm sorry, but I'm not coming back. The newbie good is going under reparation and it is a mess outside.

The food (both the salad bar and the meats) is OK. Nothing to die for but certainly not among the worst. The place is not very scenic but it's well decorated and clean. Tables seemed to be a bit close to each other (at least in our section) so it's easy to have another party's conversation overshadowing yours if they are a bit loud.
I was charged for a bottle water I did not order. I actually saw the opened on our table once we came back from the salad bar but didn't pay much attention as I though a waiter had left it there by mistake. Then I saw it on the bill. I would normally dispute it but it was Valentine's Day and didn't want to start that so I just ended up paying it. They might have done it by mistake, perhaps because they thought many people like me were just going to let it pass since it was that day... Whichever the case I thought I'd be good to mention it here in case it's a common thing there.
In the end I'd say this is basically an alternative to Texas de Brazil, with Texas being more expensive but offering better quality and service.

Food was very poor. It was cold and unsightly. The lamb was overcooked and tasteless. The black beans and rice were horrendous. My wife ate very little and was embarrassed for our friend who joined us. The salad bar was mediocre at best. The hostess had no idea about the holiday special that I received on line. The meats were tough and few in number. I have eaten in numerous Brasilian restaurants in Miami and in Brasil. I would definitely not recommend this one!

It can be pricey it's not your average Red Lobster or Burger King or McDonalds but it's a very nice restaurant that everyone would enjoy.

This place is not really like a Brazilian steak house, the food is not tasty and the service is not responsive. Be careful with your check, they include the tip automatically maybe guessing that you wouldn't give them much.
