We recently tried to dine here on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. Upon receiving our rodizio meal we noticed the meat was not fresh and reheated from God knows maybe the day before. We ordered the Rodizio for 2 people and received a wood board full of different types of meat on top of eachother. The chicken was gray and tasted very bad. We have dined and ordered rodizio in multiple brazilian restaurants here in NJ, NYC, Texas and even in Brazil and never received reheated rodizio on a wood board. So it was a slap in the face to see the reviews on yelp and receiving this type of poor service. Would not recommend this place to anyone. We ended up leaving and just paying for our drinks.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday here tonight and had an amazing time. Everyone was wonderful and friendly and Diego made sure we had everything we wanted on the Rodizio menu! I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun experience with great food and superior customer service.

They confirmed our reservation and then told us they had no tables and we would have to wait 45 mins to an hour. She then proceeded to take my number down to call me when a table was ready. I never received a call . Horrible mothers day experience.

Meat was very good. The service was not great - given food without utensils, no tongs for pulling meat, no steak knives, also not given full set of what comes with meal (I think we had a server on their first day). It also took the "meat guy" a while to come around. We were often sitting there with bare plates waiting on the rodizio. The sign on the table said time limit of 90 minutes but we were there for a full two hours b/c service was so slow. The fries were greasy and soggy (I've had them like that in Peruvian lomo saltado and they are good but these were more undercooked and wet/limp).
Live entertainment was good.
I would still go back and give it another try - I can live with soggy fries and hopefully the slow service was just that day.

From the reviews, we were really excited to try out this place. It had four stars on Yelp and almost five stars on Google. But we were so disappointed. It took a little over an hour from when we got there and sat down to when we got it food. The waitress kept saying "It's coming it's coming" every 10 minutes or so for about 40 minutes. We were actually about to get up and leave when they finally brought the plates to our table. We didn't get the rodizio, but ordered the stuff lobster and the skirt steak. My skirt steak was overcooked and under seasoned. His lobster was unbelievably tough and overcooked. Also, they packed the tables so close to each other that every time someone needed to go to the bathroom the person behind them needed to get up to let them by. Definitely not Covid friendly conditions. Maybe things would have tasted better and we would have had better service if we had just ordered the rodizio.

I don't typically leave detailed reviews but I feel this is necessary. First I wanna say, the staff at this place is extremely nice and they really want you to have an enjoyable experience. Now that's out of the way, let's talk about the food and service. We opted for the rodizio menu with skirt steak which cost an extra $5 (not worth the extra $5). The chicken legs and chicken sausage were delicious. The first meat we received was the skirt steak and it may have been the saltiest thing I've ever eaten, it costs extra, and we only got one piece each for the meal...great. We thought maybe it was just a fluke, but no. Every meat they proceeded to bring us was extremely salty, and this is coming from someone who actually enjoys salt more than others. When this was mentioned to Mike who is apparently the manager, he said he would tell the kitchen. That did absolutely nothing and may have caused them to add more salt. Then when the salt was mentioned to the person actually cooking the meats and slicing them for you, he said "That's how Brazilians like it." Ok well that's fine, but it doesn't taste good and ruined the experience. And the endless rodizio has an end..they just take forever coming out with each meat so after sitting there for 2 hours, we barely got any food. Not to mention we asked for more water, because of the salty food, and that took about 35 minutes. I really don't like posting negative reviews but this place has so much potential. The staff apologized over and over which is great but started to get uncomfortable because then we felt like we were jerks but ultimately, for what we paid for and what we actually received, we were not happy at all.

My wife and I decided to enjoy a night out to celebrate our anniversary. From the moment we arrived the staff was helpful and attentive. Despite a variety of menu items and specials that sounded AMAZING we went for it with the Rodizio. We truly enjoyed everything from the sides to all the selections of meats. All of the food was well prepared and delicious. Each selection of meat that Diego brought out was delightful! We will be back and look forward to enjoying the experience with friends.

Make sure you have the space for the taste! Brasil Paradise has an amazing rodizio option. Each piece of meat has a very well seasoned taste. My personal favorites were the Picanha, filet in bacon, and the chicken leg. Diego is an amazing server and host! I highly recommend this place. Try the grilled pineapple after your meal. I know you’ll be extra full, but trust me..... it’s WORTH it.

We had the mixed platter and it was good except for one meat that was hard and old. We asked for a replacement meat and they said that's fine. 10 minutes later we ask where it is, the server said they're making a fresh one for us. 20 minutes later we asked again and he said he'll check. Meanwhile the meat we asked for is being served to other tables. A manager told one of the servers to give us that meat and the server refused! At that point 40 minutes later we were finished eating and just wanted the check. We asked our server why it was so difficult to get that one meat and he had no answer. We asked for a manager and he said he was one! With his incompetence and the rude server it's safe to say we won't be back. They did nothing to compensate for an issue that could have easily been resolved. It's a shame...

We had a wonderful meal here. This was our first visit. We were all set to order from their regular menu which had many yummy offerings but then learned that on weekends they offer Rodizio. We opted for the Rodizio mixed meat platter for two instead of the traditional Rodizio all you can eat and it was delicious. Not only was it a very substantial amount and quite affordable but this way, we were able to come home with leftovers. What I particularly liked was that the meat was not overly salty which is how it often is at other Rodizio restaurants I’ve been in Newark. It was perfectly seasoned. The staff working there were also very friendly. We had a wonderful time and can’t wait to eat there again.

I cannot say enough good things about the rodizio dinner here. Every item tasted different, tasted good and was really really well done. The staff is outstanding and the cooks knows exactly what they’re doing. Plus it’s a ton of food for a really good price. I can’t wait to go back for the tomahawk steaks

Small place polite staff, had the Rodizio and a shrimp dish. My wife said the shrimp was the best she ever had. The Rodizio initial serving of beef was not good but after that it rebounded nicely and was not bad overall. I would defiantly go again.

The server was suppppperrr nice, and she was also the host. She gave us the nicest table just because we waited like 5 mins to be seated. That was sweet! Her service was impeccable and she made excellent reccomendations! She was also in heels while running around so she gets extra points cause the struggle is real. The food was excellent and we chose an all you can eat entree with all kinds of meat. My and my partners Valentine’s date was amazing spent at Brasil Paradise Grille! 10/10

When we first arrived we were put at a table right next to other diners. We moved ourselves with no problem. One employee but he handled everything just fine. In short order we were the only. Customers. Food very good, price very reasonable. Will return. Note: one of our diners had the buffet. Loved everything
