Overall everything was great. The only issue would be that the waiter service was a little slow but that's because the place was busy. I would definitely go back to eat.
Food was fantastic and cooked perfect. Service was a little slow with drinks but overall I would absolutely go back.
First time here, celebrating my nephews 21st Birthday. It’s a very casual place; didn’t like the meat but the chicken and sausage were good, didn’t care for the salad bar either, didn’t seem very fresh . Wouldn’t go back
This place is really busy. We can’t go here without a reservation anymore. If you don’t reserve in advance the wait time is over an hour plus. We have been going here for years. The line to get the food is so long. Food is fantastic. Only reason why we go back other than that, this place gives me anxiety.
Excellent food, excellent service.
Delicious cuts of meat! Food bar gets crowded, but overall great dinner and we left satisfied.
We had a very nice time at Oliveira's . The steak and lamb were delicious, and the salad bar had some tasty offerings. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful.
Making a reservation for this place is truly pointless-- despite making one, we waited for half an hour to be seated. They say they take requests for meat preparations, but when they're busy that is understandably not true. It's good value for what it is, and the meats they do bring out are great. Just go into the experience understanding that this is a cheaper rodizio experience, and you will be treated as such. If you're looking for the bells and whistles and professionalism, timeliness, organization, etc. this is not the place for you though it is literally half the price of the alternatives. If your main priority is just the taste and quality of the food itself then I highly recommend
The food was amazing there is almost no reason for making a reservation because I still had to wait for 40 minutes when I got there. Also the service could have been better.
Excellent food, drinks and service.
Personal is very friendly.
Excellent customer service; the food was delicious and lots of variety. Highly recommend
Staff was really polite food was good plenty of it the issue is is after 1pm lobby very crowded they need to come up with some kind of separate waiting room everyone standing from the outside door right at the food I thought that was kind of weird bringing in germs
4 of went there over the Weekend and it endless amount of food to try servers kept coming around with different types of meat. We opted for the all you can eat $30 per person. The meats were little fatty but cut off the fat and eat the meat yes we will try again nice place
The food was great. The only thing that took away from that was the fact that the line for the hot bar was so long, it was extra crowded. you're basically sitting back to back with strangers and it was so loud i couldnt hear anything. We had a large party and they quickly accommodated us but it didnt happen that smoothly i had to speak with a manager first.
I loved that they keep bringing around hot skewers of freshly cooked meat and the food in the hot and cold bar was delicious. The guys holding the skewers dont pay attention very well thought. They are just trying to go quickly from one table to the next. But our waiter was great!
Too expensive considering drinks and dessert are not included. Good selection of meat but buffet options are limited. Waiters don’t speak good English so can’t really explain how the process works (supposedly there is a buffet option and a pay by weight option). Space is extremely cramped and noise level is bordering on uncomfortable. Can’t really enjoy the experience.
I went with my friends on 3/10/2018 Sunday. They didn’t give us Boston Restaurant Week price which was supposed to be $25 each person and clearly listed on the Boston Restaurant Week link. We were charged regular price. And the food is way to salty!!!! Not recommended at all!!!
It was very crowded when you enter the restaurant. You have no idea where to go to check in, as you try to work your way through the sea of people. Even with a reservation we had to wait for some time. The food was decent, but the whole check in and waiting area experience is definitely awful.
An unusual experience, reminiscent of dining out in South America (Peru, Paraguay). Very good meats, good choice of salad and extras on buffet. Busy and friendly service.
The place was absolutely amazing. I have never been before and will definitely go back. The entire staff was friendly and made for a great experience.
First time in Boston area and it was my favorite food of the trip. The service was outstanding as well.
it was crowded and we felt squished into a corner. the food was nice but it was hard to move around as there was a party next to us.
Good food with great atmosphere the waiters are faster
Loved it great food and great prices loved the services waiters are very polite
food is buffet style. good food mostly. the bacon chicken is superb. the pork was so grissely was impossible to chew. overall was decent food. A little high priced, but good. service was a bit smothering. every 2 minutes (literally, every 2 minutes) a manager or server checked in on us to make sure we were ok. was difficult to enter engaged conversation because of the constant attention. i may go back, but not soon. if i could id give 3.5 stars. a little better than average, bit not a 4 star place for me
The food was pretty good. The restaurant is set up a little funny, it's kind of cramped and the buffet line kept backing up.. loved all the beef options they have and the pineapple was delicious!
Great customer service
Second time there and it was perfect
The food is very good. I am not sure who the lady was that continued to come to the table because she was not the waiter but she annoyed us every 10 minutes. She poured water in the cup with Sprite etc. I'm sure she thought she was being helpful but it was too much. Also the bartenders need to step up their game.
Bad food and service.Very noise environment .
A very good night had to go back twice
This restaurant was overwhelmingly crowded. 30 minutes after our reservation we still hadn't begun our meal and we had somewhere to be after the meal. The manager was kind in allowing us to leave without having to pay since we hadn't eaten, bit the atmosphere was very loud and the line at the buffet was not even moving. The food looked and smelled good and they could accommodate large groups by rearranging tables. Still, the tables were very close together and the bars and tvs ruined the atmosphere. We were disappointed that we didn't have a timely meal.
My wife an I loved it so much that we are going back tonight
We enjoyed our dinner at Oliveira's. The meats were very tasty and the variety was good. The salads and vegetables weren't as good as I had hoped, but who goes to a churrascaria for the salads?
the place was great, me and my fiance will go again! we love the service and attention to care. everyone greeted us and the food was so good.!!!
My dinner partner and I knew what we were getting into when we started. The food came fast and furious, since we opted for the all you can eat. Most of the meats were amazing, but some cuts were very tendony. The desserts were fantastic as well.
Food was amazing, and such a fun experience!
Food was very tasty. Highly recommend the passion fruit cake for dessert.
Every single employee there will provide service with a smile, refreshing! Service is prompt yet not obstructing.
The selection of foods, from the buffet, to the grill to the a'la carte menu, provides something for...frankly almost everyone. The one thing about this type of food is that the chefs definitely keep the salt shaker close :-)
The crowd is mixed, everything from dressed up special occasion patrons to grab a quick bite on the way home from work. "Noise level" would be a poor choice of words, the sound level better describes it, is nice, provides an ambient yet by no means is it noisy.
We had a reservation at 7:15, got the table at 8:45. The reservation clearly made no difference at all.
Great staff and food
Great buffet options!
