They are always great when we come. Our 3 year old loves coming to Green Forrest. He always wants to pick up the meat with his tongs!

I love Green Forest! The food is always fresh, hot, and perfectly seasoned. The chimi steak is my absolute favorite. They've got an amazing wine list, as well. And the staff is always fantastic!

I have been to the Green Forest many time before my last visit and it has gone downhill. The meat selection was lacking but what I had was good. I had my card on green almost the whole time and was passed by more times. While my waitress was nice sh wasn't very attentive as other wait staff stopped by to refill my drink. The salad bar selection was good and I was pleased with that but for a bill over $100 for just me and my husband I would have to say I am very disappointed and wouldn't go back.

The staff went to great length to accommodate my partner, who is somewhat grumpy about new experiences. He left with a huge smile and has been reflecting positively on both the feast and the personal touches that went in to every interaction. From bringing him well-done meat to french fries to help him get going, this place is focused on the experience and our shows. Btw, the food was excellent!

Love this place. We get there at least 2-3 times a year. Would have got 5 stars , but only got 4 for food because past couple times they haven't had yucca, and I've only got swordfish once there sadly. And I loved it and never eat fish, so it's been sad that I finally had fish I loved and haven't gotten it since. Otherwise, you can't beat green Forest if you are a steak/meats lover. One of the best quality and value in the Pitt area.

Love the Food, Service and atmosphere! The food is fresh, hot and every bite is amazing! Bacon, Bacon, Bacon... big cubed hunks of bacon! The Bacon is a MusT try!
Our waitress is always wonderful! Never letting our drinks go empty and always bringing fresh clean plates. Everyone is always eager and ready to serve you with a friendly smile!

I Absolutely loved the green forest in the past. However, that is no longer the case. I am extremely disappointed with the carved meat, hot sides and cold salad bar. The quality has decreased tremendously.

It was our son's 15th birthday and we like to provide different food and restaurant choices regularly but especially during special occasions. The Green Forest went above and beyond any of our expectations. Our server Jax was AMAZING!!!! She gave us a detailed overview of the restaurant and recommended several things like the classic Brazilian cocktail which my husband and I tried in the passion fruit flavor which was DELICIOUS, as well as their complimentary fried bananas drizzled with a bit of honey, WOW!!!!!

The salad bar goes way beyond salad. I would call it an appetizer bar. The variety and flavor of the meats are outstanding. The staff is attentive to your needs. I have been there several times and have never been disappointed. This is the place to go for a special evening with family and friends!

Outstanding meal from start to finish. Lots of choices on the buffet as well as the meats being passed around. The service was excellent in that they made sure you got to try everything you wanted and then came back for seconds of your favorites. The staff seemed to enjoy what they were doind and for me that makes it a more enjoyable experience. We will definitely be going back!!

We wanted to do something special for our 10th wedding anniversary so we gave Green Forest a try. The experience was fantastic. Everything we ate was delicious, our server was attentive without being overbearing and the restaurant was clean and comfortable. It is a bit pricey ($45.95 per person not including drinks, dessert, or tip) but it is absolutely worth it. We will be going back.

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!

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.
