Me and four friends tried Green Forest because we had heard good things about the food. We definitely were not disappointed. The food was very good and the service was excellent.

This place is great. I’ve been there twice. Is and I will return. I wish they would open a second location in North Hills so I could go more often. Their steak and seasonings are excellent.

This place may have been ok back in the day when it was the only churrascaria in Pittsburgh, but with the arrival of Texas de Brazil and Fogo de Chao, the Green Forest suffers badly by comparison. With the exception of the lamb, the meat was tough and the chicken was dry. The side dishes were good enough, but the price is only $5 less than the newcomers’ I mentioned, with vastly superior food and atmosphere.

Meat, Meat, Meat...so much you won't leave hungry. My wife and I love this place! The food is delicious and the service is on point. Flip it to green for meat and red to stop.

The restaurant itself needs some renovation or maybe even a move in location. The service was excellent, however, it was a bit difficult to get different selections of meat because of the large party that was next to us. Overall great experience, but needs to be better prepared for a large group of customers.

Ate here for the first time. Celebrating 2 birthdays. Very enjoyable! Meat was nicely seasoned. Hot and cold bars had a lot of delicious options. It was fun to try all the different varieties of meat, which were delivered to our table in rapid succession. Excellent service. Pricey, but worth it for a special occasion.

The first churascarria in the Pittsburgh area, I think, and still the best in my opinion. Great food, pleasant staff, nice ambience, especially because it’s not crazy loud like some others. One of our favorite local restaurants.

First off, the decor is very tired and dated. To be priced in the same range as a first class Brazilian steakhouse like Fogo de Chao, is a mismatch. The meats were decent and cold bar selections okay.

Look if you want the experience of a restaurant where the owners care about their food and your service, this place is a must. Forget about the other Brazilian places. Pure focus is the quality of the food. In general it was quiet and it is because ppl were eating. If its noisy they are doing something other than eating good food. They provided a little birthday song for our diner, and gave military discount. Truly a great experience.

This was my first time visiting Green Forest Restaurant and I enjoyed my visit very much. The seafood/salad/hot bar was very appealing, especially the seafood. All of the meats that were brought around were quite delicious and seasoned to perfection. The service was very good. I had been to a different Brazilian Steakhouse before but it was not nearly as good as Green Forest Churrascaria. I would come back here.

On occasion, Green Forest offers discounts on their full experience. But even at full price, their food is excellent. Meats are rich and flavorful, with a great variety between them. Their hot bar has some great supporting flavors and textures, and their cold bar has a good selection of options. I tend to get one plate full of single pieces of buffet items, then I can combine pieces with different cuts of meat so that my whole experience is diverse! The owner is almost always there in the evening when I've gone, and is incredibly accommodating. She even took the time to be a sommelier for my dad, who appreciated her recommendations on wine! Service from all staff members is superlative. I will be back, as I have already!

It was a true dining experience. The hostess was fantastic and thanked us for coming and was very helpful. The waiter was Brazilian and truly a very pleasant and helpful man. Will definitely return. The whole family loved the experience. The variety of the food was also a treat.

Pleasant and friendly staff who were very attentive to our group and provided excellent service. Food offerings were varied and plentiful. A lot of different meats offered which included not your everyday salad bar which also included some seafood. Dessert and alcohol not included in price. We were there on a day that there was $10 off each person, which saved us $70 off the total. Expensive place but nice for special occasions. Will go back. 😊

This was my favorite out of all of the Brazilian steak houses in the Pittsburgh area. Prompt service and food was amazing. This is a very well managed restaurant. I was with a friend from Brazil and he also agreed with me. I will definitely go back,

The online menu doesn't reflect at all what was served. The salad bar was really lacking. It wasn't at all what the menu had described. The seafood was way overcooked. The meat that was being brought to the table was either overcooked or undercooked. It was also clear that they use cheap cuts of meat.

This was for our 10th wedding anniversary. So we didn't mind spending the extra money for a really good meal. We were extremely disappointed though. The quality of the food did not match up to the price.

The food was a little tired, particularly the meat. Some of the meat items had been warming too long. Was not told dessert wasn’t included in the prix fixe. Convivial atmosphere but felt the food quality didn’t support the price.
