I took my boyfriend here for the first time to celebrate his birthday. Everything was absolutely perfect! He loved the food (all of the meats were cooked and seasoned perfectly), the fresh muddled lemonade (I think we have to buy a muddler now lol), the dessert (he had the carrot cake, I had the creme brûlée), and just the over all feel of everything. Thank you for making it such a perfect night! We will definitely be back soon!

As always this place is everything you want in good food. If you love meat this is the place to go, with a lot of different sides and heated dishes. This is on our list of places to eat and recommend.

We went there for our daughters birthday and the food was wonderful. They came around with plenty of meat and the salad and seafood bar had plenty of variety. There was paella on the hot bar which was really good. The Waite service was exceptional and dessert was great. Would recommend and will go back again.

My friends and I went here for my birthday and had a great experience. Compared to the other Churrascaria in town (Texas de Brazil) the environment is welcoming and the food is delicious. My last trip to Texas de Brazil we felt unwelcome (as if the management was watching us trying to push us to leave faster) and the food was unbearably salty. If you need to choose between the two ALWAYS CHOOSE GREEN FOREST!!!

Yet again, the Green Forest has risen to meet our appetites for meat! We went on a Wednesday night, and were almost the only people there, which just meant that we got lots of very personal attention. The waiter and the passadore were super attentive, and willing to bring our favorites upon request. My husband and I had been going here for special occasions for years, and introduced our daughter to it at an early age.

It was my husbands 60th birthday. The restaurant was clean and the food was fresh. The service was very good as well but the food choice was kind of strange. It’s definitely not for kids and the meat was ok. Nothing was outstanding for the price. Spent $330 for 3 adults and 2 kids. Won’t be back.

It is unfortunate that a restaurant that charges $45.00 per person can justify the underwhelming food and experience. Certainly did not reflect fine dining and I felt as if I were in a cafeteria. The Caesar salad was soggy even though we were there at 5pm and they had been opened since 4pm. The servers and waitresses were attentive but if we liked a certain cut of meat, we had to wait for that particular piece to come around again to have more. We were served tiny slivers of each of the meats. chicken and sausage, but if we wanted more we were denied and had to wait. Their ploy is to offer salads and other hot foods and then make you wait for the main courses that you like. French fries and cheese bread were offered, but again just a plan to offer as little meat as possible. Did I mention $45.00 per person!!! Such a waste of money and time and so unfortunate.

Went for restaurant week. Had a party of 9 (originally 6, but on 3 separate calls we upped the number 1 by 1, and they were more than hospitable catering to our frenzy).

Great cuts of meat as always, and service was equally good at handling our large party.

Only complaint was that they didn't have the pineapple on the menu, which is a big reason why we came here. That said, we certainly weren't disappointed with the meal, and were completely stuffed afterward.

We love to come here! The regular servers and the meat servers (I don't know what to call them :-) ) are fabulous. Great personalities and very friendly. The meat is WONDERFUL - I love trying all the different cuts and the salad bar area is also very nice and has a big selection. If you like meat, visit soon, you will be happy you did!

The service and food was excellent. Great salad bar and their was plenty of meats to have. All hot and ready.

The hostess and or coat check was disengaged, visually flustered, never a smile. No eye contact.
But note she was not disrespectful, just not engaging. Not even a hello . On the way out we got our coats from a pleasant dark haired young woman.

Good ending to a nice night out.

Clean but could use a good remodel.

The food was very good. You get a variety of sides, from salads to special Brazilian foods. If you love a selection of meats (sirloin, chicken, turkey wrapped in bacon, and pork) cooked over a open flame, seasoned to perfection, and the meats kept coming, until you decided you had enough. The pricing was good for six people, but the drinks were just a little expensive. Overall, this is a good place to eat, very filling.
