    Love Brazilian steakhouses ever since visiting Brasil. Haven’t been to Oliveira’s in a few years, so wanted to revisit with a friend who’d never had Brazilian before. The crowd was pretty eclectic, the drinks were pretty sweet and not much alcohol, and the cuts of beef were pretty fatty. I want to love this spot, so hoping it was an off night and I won’t wait as long to return now that I live here!

    They do not skimp on the food! It's all you can eat, and they mean it. They just kept coming to the table, offering us different steaks, sausages & chicken. Loved the wings! This is such a great place.

    We were sitting in the corner and were often looked over. At one point, no one was coming around with meat to the point where we had two different people bring us medium well flank 4 times in a row while no other meats came by. Furthermore, an elderly server who was clearing our plates said that we were no longer allowed to get plates at the buffet bar and had to wait for him to bring us plates??? When asked why, he said that we weren't allowed to. Overall very unhelpful. However, it was the weekend so lots of folks. Maybe he was confused. Either way, I just wish they had better crowd control. Sometimes, the line for the window counter for meat gets so long you actually can't grab food from the salad bar. Lots of staff but too many just stand around :(

    I went for a fun date night with my partner of one year. I’ve been to Brazilian rodizios before and have always enjoyed the experience. They really did not slow down with the meat here! You will easily get your fill. The meats were good and they had quite a good selection of cuts. A bit on the salty side. The salad bar had nice options too. We could’ve easily just done the salad bar and ate well. We went on a Saturday night and it was very crowded. Salad bar had a long line. Still, a good value and tasty food. We’ll go back at some point but will need a break from meat!

    Our server, Patrick, was super. I've been to other Brazillion steakhouses, and the format us primarily buffet, salad bar and BBQ meats on skewers staff brings to yout table. The pricing was a bit better than other steakhouses. But the salad and buffet bars lacked variety of Barzilluon foods. Was more Americanized. most noticable was no variety of cheeses, limited fruit options. Meats were ok. Most were far too salty. I loved the staff attention to requests for rare, and well cuts. The staff was very good at accommodating customers needs and requests. In short, this restaurant is good for a rela r icely affordable, all you can eat standard american buffer and salad bar for the family with a few Brazilluon twists and representation, and a bit of style.

    It is traditional Brazilian style churrascaria. Come here hungry and you're sure to leave with the meat sweats.

    The server was cordial and clearly working hard with patrons. Very noisy to the point that it was hard to hear others at the table. The meat selection was excellent and very tasty, but they offered more medium to well-done. We had to ask for meat cooked rare several times. The buffet was extremely messy and did not appear to be attended too much other than filling items. More expensive than other Brazilian places I have gone to. Overall, good but not great.

    Oily, dirty and confusing! We will NEVER go back and were mislead by other reviewers (staff?). The confusing part is the pricing: by the plate (pounds) or at the table (sliced meat and salad bar). The waitress could barely explain this to us. The food is oily,oily,and oily! We could barely taste the difference between entrees. The rice was okay. Thank God for coconut cake and cappuccino which were great(that's the one star). The thing that freaked us out was the dirty glasses at the next table. We were in a sunny spot and could see the streaks and cloudiness of the "new table" settings!! Washed? I don't think so! UGH-if we could give no stars, we would. Don't go, not worth the $$$.

    4 of us had the rodizio, a few drinks, and dessert. The waitress, service, and food were great. My only complaint is that if you don't want the meat rodizio or salad bar, there aren't other menu options. I just wanted a steak with rice, feijoada, and a vegetable bc I didn't want to over eat... which I eventuality did in order to get my $$ worth on the rodizio. My other complaint is that the hot food serving station is next to a wall, so instead of having the option to serve yourself from 2 sides, you have to wait for people to move out of the way. The line is longer than I've seen at other rodizios.

    The food will never go wrong , great selection for meats . This location is a little small so you will be close to other guest . Service can be good or bad , depending on the night . The host I had tonight was completely unprofessional and seemed untrained , lacked hospitality . But her team definitely stepped up and made up for performance .
