Wish I could give this place a good review, we were really looking forward to have some Brazilian food close to work. Unfortunately, service was horrible. Although the restaurant was quite empty it was hard to get anyone to refill your glass with water or any drink for that matter. The place looks like it is falling apart. Hopefully it turns around.

I found Brazil Grill on Restaurant.com and was excited to check it out with my guests from Calif. I had planned on getting the All you can eat Brazillian BBQ but found out that we were there too early and the meat were not ready to be served till after 5-5:30pm. We ended up ordering from the menu and I have to say...the food was excellent! The portions were large and flavorful. My daughter ordered Seafood Fettucine, I ordered Brazilean Paella (plenty of seafood in this dish), and my guests both ordered the Churrasco Misto (which was served with rice and black beans. They raved about the black beans so much that I regret not tasting some...next time). I was a bit skeptical to try out Brazil Grill due to all the negative reviews but I'm really glad we went.
I also have to add that the service was EXCEPTIONAL. I wish I could remember the waiter's name but he knew we were so disappointed that we were there too early for the All you can eat BBQ (which was my fault for not checking out the time). He tried very hard to accommodate us in every way. One ex: I had changed my mind on getting an appetizer and ordered it 5 mins AFTER ordering our meals. I told him it can come out together since I ordered it late. But he made sure that we got the appetizer first and in the right order. Great service!!! Will definitely return.

The food was good but it took along time to be served. To much time from one dish to the next making the main dish cold when the meat was served.

Took a punt on this place after finding it on open table. Checked trip advisor too and had mostly good reviews. When we arrived the place was so busy! We'd booked a table but still had to wait 15 mins which was a bit annoying but, it turns out, worth the wait. We all had some form of steak and it was very tasty. Mine was overcooked (I like rare and it was brown) but it was a thin steak kept on a hot plate so it was understandable. Often when steak is overdone it becomes chewy and unpleasant to eat, this one however was still tender and delicious so it turned out great!
Everyone at my table loved their meal and would return again!

Food was very salty and the server forgot the sides. After being reminded, he brought it after everyone had finished their meal. Waited 30 minutes for the check. I wouldn't go back, but the ambience was nice.

The service here was great but the food was lacking. The meat was described in the menu as tender but it was actually fairly tough and not very flavorful. The location is excellent.

The food was very tasty; not as salty as most Brazilian bbq's. The quality of meat was very good and fairly lean. The selection of meats was good. Everything we tried was very flavorful.

The soup came cold so I couldn't eat it. The paella was tasty and the seafood in it was fresh. The restaurant was virtually empty when we went pre- theater, but the servers were still socializing with each other, so we didn't get much attention.

We were looking for fine dining, but the ambiance was much less than impressive. Right in the door, we were asked if we were there for the all you can eat or the regular menu. We went to our table and rickety chairs and were given a plastic coated menu. The dining room is in the same space as the bar, which sets the tone for the whole place. We got a glass of wine, and decided to go eat somewhere else, so I can't speak for the food. The location is near theaters, which is a plus, but if you are looking for a nice date night type of place, this isn't it.

My sister and I came here for the rodizio one day to check out alternatives to the other crazy expensive restaurants in manhattan, but even with a groupon, its really not worth the price you pay. If you want rodizio, you get sent deep into the basement, rather than eating on the ground level. Its stairs only, so if you're on crutches like me, its difficult to get to. The meats come out very sparingly, and the hot buffet is only mildly lukewarm. When you ask for rice or fried bananas (neither of which were at the hot buffet, but listed as options on the menu), it takes 45 minutes to get it. Even asking for a Coke took us requesting it 3 times, over 40 minutes. We didn't finish our wine bottle, but we weren't allowed to take it with us.

Food was pretty good but slow and the reservation does not stipulate that you have to specifically reserve for the Brazilian steak house experience. We picked the resturraunt for that reason so were disappointed
