We have been to Brazil Grill two times before and enjoyed it. We loved the quality of food and the variety. This time not so much. The food was ok most of the meats seemed dry and even though it is all you can eat. They seemed a bit stingy on the serving sizes. It appeared there were some regulars there known by name and we were watching and it seemed they we're getting great service and larger portions. Even though I had asked for more they gave me little slivers if meat.

Tammy, thank you for your comments. The Churrasco has to be eaten in very thin slices. You can ask for more at any time. If you want thicker slices, the Gaucho will be happy to do so. Please come to see us again for we do appreciate your patronage.

Perhaps wait a little longer before going the Brazil Grill team is working hard but some of the kinks and learning curves currently slow service and though we got almost everything we wanted upon request many requests went unanswered or were delayed to the point we had forgotten we asked. Otherwise, a fine establishment still and will get better once they get more comfortable with the C-19 safety requirements.

My husband and I went for our Anniversary. We sat outside. It was a lovely evening with a nice light breeze. The food was delicious and plentiful. The pineapple was outstanding as always. They abided by all the Covid-19 rules. . .masks, social distancing tables, etc. We sat outside so we were not allowed to go inside to the salad buffet, but we were able to order anything we wanted from the hot and cold buffet and they brought it out to us. We will be back again!

Everything was, as always, amazing at Brazil Grill. My wife and I were very impressed with the COVID precautions taken from servers with masks on at all time to enough space between tables/booths. They even kept their buffet except the wait staff would get what you wanted, as many times as you wanted. The service, food and ambiance was absolutely on point and amazing. I frequent Brazil Grill at least once a month and I have never been disappointed. Definitely the BEST Brazilian restaurant in Portland.

Brazil Grill is our favourite place to eat in Portland. Our boys routinely choose it as their birthday meal spot. The meat is flavourful, the salad bar has a nice variety, and don't forget to try the strogonoff, empanadas, and the grilled pineapple.

Once we were seated the service was decent and the people circulating with the food were lovely. However, the process of getting seated was very chaotic, there was no dedicated bartender and getting a drink while I was waiting took over 15 minutes. The grilled pineapple was very good.

The food was amazing and the service was excellent. Meat kept coming for as long as we could. Started off doing the Portland dining month deal but switched midway through the meal to the full dinner. Everything was cooked to our liking even though I requested medium rare and my girlfriend likes well done. They were gracious to accommodate us both. Will definitely be coming back.

Knock off Fogo de Chao that costs the same. Tiny salad bar, 6 hot items, and not as much meat service as one would expect. The ambiance is HORRID. In an almost empty restaurant, a loud group was sat right next to us. And in a time of Coronavirus, I watched patrons return to the salad bar with their dirty plates (rather than getting a clean one). I will never return. What a waste of Portland Dining Month.

4 of us went here for dinner during Portland Dining Month. We had been to the "other" Brazilian restaurant (similar) and wanted to compare. The Wait staff was friendly, and the food was good. Selection was less than the "other" place, and we were supposed to have been offered 6 different cuts of meat. We were only offered 4, and had to ask for the beef. There should have been two different cuts of beef, but we were only offered one. We were offered glazed pineapple instead. Also, the meatballs were not on the warm buffet as advertised. When we originally asked about bread, our wait person made it sound like that was extra, only to discover later from the Manager that we had entirely missed the first course. (Polenta, Empanada and bread). It was never offered, but we did request to try everything before we left, enabling us to make a complete comparison. Overall, the experience was ok, but not quite as good as the "other" Brazilian restaurant.

The meat was bland and overcooked except the pork that was raw.
The sides were limited with the only warm sides consisting of carbs. Waited a very long time for options to come to the table and we were disappointed when it did. The linguica was greasy and lacked flavor, mustard steak was just coated in frenches and mustard was all you could taste. Went here due to Fogo de Chao having no options...mistake!

We came to Brazil Grill during Portland Dining Month and were very excited to try it out. When we were seated we asked about the PDM menu and what options were available to us. The waiter stumbled for a moment and said "I'll be right back." We sat there for a few moments before they came back and said "Okay, we can do that." We enjoyed our meal but the meats seemed dry. The pineapple was DELICIOUS! Just wish they were more prepared for the PDM customers with menus available. We overheard several other tables asking for the PDM menu as well, so we were not the only ones.

We selected this restaurant for our Portland Dining Month experience Admittedly we should have been more discerning when viewing menus, however the concept seemed unsuited for this location. Food wasn’t exceptional or were the service staff dialed into describing the selections available. We accept responsibility for our decision but recommend this restaurant not participate in PDM in the future

I've been wanting to try this place for quite some time and finally decided to take advantage of the Portland Dining Month event. Sadly, the food was not what I expected. All of the meat we were given was dry - with the exception of the tri-tip steak which was bloody but very chewy. We were disappointed with the food but the wait staff was attentive and pleasant.

We went as part of the Portland Dining experience in March. For $33 I suppose we got our money's worth, but weren't able to sample all the meat options. The salad bar is generous. The meat a little on the skimpy side, most of it overcooked, and only one of the wait staff seemed happy to be there. The ambiance was ... meh. We won't be going there next year in search of a keto dining experience in Portland.

There service was slow and there was only a few meats that come out, witch was caramelize pineapple, lamb, honey ham, Bacon wrapped chicken and picanha. This was my first time here and It was not great. I thought they would have more meat come out I was told they have a shrimp that was good and to try it but they didn’t bring that out, we had to ask for it because it only come out by request per person. Same thing happened with there bread polenta. I would honestly go and to Fogo de Chao for better food and experience oh and fogo has a better salad bar too. This is my review of the place I don’t want a coupon or anything from them to be honest. I can say I’ve tried it here and I won’t be going back

Table service was very very slow. We always run out of food and have to wait. Food taste bland and either under cooked or over. Worse brazilian restaurant that we have been. Everyone seems to be nice and treated us well. The bad review is mainly on the food. Value wise, the manager let us use 2 yelp certificates (thank you) but honestly after the 18% mandatory tip, it still cost us $200 for 4 adults and 1 child with no drinks or dessert ordered. If the food was good and service is just a little bit slow than usual (Sunday at 4:30 PM...not even super busy) it would have been okay since we are not in a hurry at all and can always use the break. Ah just keeping going back to the food. Garlic steak and Picanhha is worse of all what we have tasted in the past. Chicken and pork is okay but we came mainly for the beef.
