This was the second time my wife and I ate at Brazil Gourmet Pizzeria & Grill. We introduced some friends to the restaurant and, instead of pizza, had the Churrasco Misto which we all shared along with some appetizers! My wife, who is not a big fan of steak, ate some of it (along with the chicken, shrimp and chorizo) and said that it was the best steak she’s had! The atmosphere was great and there was even some live music for a little bit during our time there! Thanks for a great evening!

Food was good. Service was good. Pretty loud bar area but people having fun. Breakfast burrito with spicier than anticipated and watch out for the double chorizo – it’s a lot of food. Norway Benedict was excellent.

This restaurant is one of my top two favorites! I love the food, ambience and the staff. It is one of the few restaurants that I've been to lately that you can have a normal conversation and hear your dinner companion. The food is absolutely delicious, innovative and well presented. The timing is perfect! The meal is not rushed and each dish comes out within the perfect amount of time. Their sommelier is excellent with his recommendations and the choices of wines.
