Not a great value. I've had much more tender steak at other restaurants of this style. Waited a very long time between different types of meat.

The service wasn’t great because I found myself frequently asking for refills. They didn’t keep the food coming as ask and found ourselves waiting around for more food. They would only bring a couple of pieces for a entire table. It looks closed from the outside, had to make sure they were even open.

I like some of the food however the Cole slaw was salty, potato salad was made with too much eggs. The Strawberry Lemonade was excellent and refreshing. The meat selection well some was very good and others not so much. Salad bar was fresh but the blacks began had no seasoning and the rice was cooked a little bit too much. Overall, the place isn't bad it was Good but they could be better

Just bad. The best meat was the ribs on the salad bar. All the others were barely eatible. Everything was dry and had NO taste. Me and my 12 yr old son paid $90 for lunch. It was worth maybe $20... just for the salad bar which was good. Stay away!

The restaurant Brazaviva Churrascaria is very unique! There is not a standard menu where you have to choose from just a few items. Instead, you are given the opportunity to try many items that are served to your table along with the delicious buffet!! The food, atmosphere and service is AMAZING!!! Thank you Jorge (our longtime friend/waiter) for the recommendation!

The big complaint is that they tell you that leave your card green and they will keep serving you more meat, but after a point they stop coming to your table. Also we bought a bottle of wine and after the first glass the waiter was talking about the next bottle. When we didn’t get another bottle for the two of us is when the meat stopped. I will never go there again and would not recommend it.

It wasn’t busy at all, in fact we were the only people there for a while. Eventually two other groups showed up but that was it while we were there. For that reason we were a little concerned, but that was needlessly so. The food was great, the service was pretty good and we had a good time. My one concern was that we didn’t see and weren’t offered any filet mignon which we have had in the past.

I chose this particular restaurant because I wanted a variety of protein. This was our first time dining at Brazaviva and was pleased with the prompt and professional service. The food was tasty, the seasoning and the temperature was just right. We were very pleased overall. We will be visiting again.

Very good Rodizio, I felt they fell short on the variety they present on the website. I also made the reservation thru the website and mentioned it was my wife's and mine anniversary, they totally failed to mention or do anything special about it, I mentioned it to the host on the way out and all he did was apologized.
salad bar was excellent.

After a warm greeting g, we were seated at a nice table where we could see the selection of fresh salads. The choices were beautifully displayed. Then the gauchos come around with a nice selection of meats that they carve for you.

The food was very good. The service was very attentive. The restaurant was very nice.

TERRIBLE. Not only did the bump up the price from $36-$44 per person for Mother’s Day, but the waiter was so rude and inattentive. The sides bar is all completely cold and I didn’t like it at all. Cold mushrooms and asparagus with my meat isn’t very appealing to me. Only the cheapest cuts were offered we had to flag down the servers for the filet mignon and lamb and they came as we wanted to leave. No bread or fried bananas were offered and if we hadn’t read on the website that it was included we wouldn’t never gotten it. The tab was $283 for 5 people with a $41 tip. Tip for who or what? We spent most of our time waiting and Barely are because the bar was so unappetizing. The waiter was not shy to let us know he didn’t want to be serving us. Never going back...not recommending.

I went in mother's day. Was delicious the food and good services. But I saw different price (lowest) in the web page, the server told me that was because the mother's day, I did not see this in the page. If you want to go you need to be sure how much you will pay, and they should put this information in the page

The beef was good. Chicken and pork dry. The service was lacking. We had to ask for someone to take our drink order. Only one person at our table wanted meet right away and turned his paper to the green side. When the rest were ready after we finished our salad the guys cane around only a few times. We kept having to ask. There was one server who was very personable. There seemed to be a lot of rushing around by the staff and not many tables seated. The staff was pleasant just not available.

If the cost was $25 not $40 this would have been a better value. I have been to several Churrascaria ‘s,this one was ok.

Service was poor at best. The only good thing about this restaurant was that the food was pretty good. As a Brazilian Rodizio restaurant, the selections were small. After about 20 minutes of food coming around, a server could not be found. Eventually, desert and coffee were ordered. It took 25 minutes for the coffee to come, 20 minutes after the dessert was served.
