We had never been to a Brazilian style restaurant before, but we had heard good things. The actual experience was MUCH better than what we heard! Each of our servers were courteous and went out of their way to make sure we had a great dining experience. The background music was nice, but not so loud that it hindered conversation. And the food was out of this world! Such a variety of meats and flavors, and they just kept coming!! Wow! Easily one of the best dining experiences we've had! We'll be there for every occasion from now on!

Great service. Meat was good. Cheese and breads were dried up. Good coffee. Dessert is xtra. Could use better decor in the place. The average person might nit care for the sides.

My girlfriend has to have her meat served well done for medical reasons. The servers were very accommodating and made sure she had plenty of choices cooked to her liking. Have been there many times and will be going back.

The salad and appetizer bar is fabulous. For those who enjoy many choices and a lot of items to select from, you will enjoy immensely. They also have a birthday promotion. The staff are very attentive and try hard to suit everyone, with a constant flow of meats to select from. A little pricey, but less than other Brazilian steakhouses. Oh, and you can bring your own wine, for a corking fee.

Good food at a good price. Been here in the past on the weekend, 1st time on a week night...... the service and staff are a lot better on the weekends by far. Cocktails are excellent and selection of dishes in the food bar area is good and always tasty.

The staff was outstanding. Everyone there talk their time and explain how it all worked and the waiters all came around to each and every table with different types of meat. Each meat was more delicious than the last. The hot bar and the salad bar were beyond belief. This place is worth every penny you spend. For the first time ever, a $10 drink was truly worth it. Basecamp on nothing. The owner takes particular care to walk around to newcomers to see if they are enjoying themselves and their food. Even though it is slightly difficult to find, you must pay attention to the street signs, I would go back in a heartbeat. It truly is a Hidden Gem among all of these chains

This is the best restaurant around. It's a steakhouse first, but their salad bar is also insane. A vegetarian could easily eat their fill here and have a great dining experience. The staff is top notch and the whole place runs like a well oiled machine. I could not recommend this place more.

I always love this place. So I took my friend here for her birthday. Everything was great. But some food I like on the cold bar usually wasn’t there, and grilled pineapple wasn’t there that day. I thought it will be there everyday.

This was the original Churrascaria in the Pittsburgh area and it is still the best! Great selection of great tasting meats, a plentiful hot and cold buffet, a very attentive staff, and plenty of free parking! My #1 favorite Pittsburgh area restaurant that I constantly recommend to my friends!

The place is outdated, we didn’t get our side (fried bananas), and the salad/seafood bar seemed as though some of the items had been sitting out for a while. For the price, I wasn’t impressed.

This is the best rhodizio I have been to and I have been to over six others. Each time I have gone the variety is great with the best cuts of meat. The service is unmatched and the owners are hands on and ensure your experience is the best. Unlike other rhodizio, the pace is perfect so you can enjoy each cut of meat. The salad bar also has an incredible variety to include seafood. By far the best restaurant I have ever been to!!!

I have been to Green Forest at least 10 times since I found the place back in 2004. I have near been disappointed, weither meeting up with friends for a fancy night out to showing off Pittsburgh to my soon to be in-laws, the food and service have been great and everyone went home full and satisfied.

this is, hands down, the best churrascaria experience in Pittsburgh. i recently dined at fogo de Chao near MoMA in NYC, and this blew that away. the staff was incredibly attentive. the food was delicious, and the servers came around in a timely manner. requests were honoured (and quickly, to boot). the group of us are on a low carb diet, so this place was perfect-- I couldn't ask for a better dining experience.

oh, after the meal, definitely get the French press coffee.

We were greeted promptly and seated. The staff paid attention to our every need. We were able to request the meat that we wanted more of. The quality of food was amazing. The owner came checked in on us. She answered our questions and engaged in delightful conversation. The buffet was full of cold salads and sides and the hot bar was delicious! The black beans and rice are a favorite. A new addition was the ferro salad.. delicious!
