Brazil Grill Ratings and Reviews
The food was great but the service was horrible. We went for my birthday so we had a bit of people with us. They had only 2 servers I had to repeatedly ask for my drinks and for the bill. Because of the horrible service I don’t feel that the cost was worth it.
I took my family out for a churrascaria experience; our other Brazilian steakhouse had no reservations so we came here. I had eaten here in the past with mixed results. This time, the food was definitely better, although they seemed to avoid bringing higher cost items around like bacon wrapped filet, lamb, and other high cost beef items. Instead, they kept offering low cost chicken legs and ham. Also, the cost had gone up making them less of a value. Overall, not bad and I would go back.
I hope I get my points, I didn't cancel the reservation, must mean the restaurant canceled it instead. The service was okay, went through a few servers, that wasn't too cool. Took a long time just to get fresh plates, that wasn't cool. Some of the servers ignored us, even though we had our 'button' turned to GREEN. That wasn't cool. The food was pretty good, bacon-wrapped fillet was good, bacon wasn't crisp at all, and that didn't have enough rotation. Not as good as Fogo de Chao in ambiance, service, salad bar, price or value. Sure if we weren't Black, we'd get better service. Won't be returning most likely.
Sadly, this establishment has gone downhill. The meat was dry, salad bar was not kept full, never saw all the meats offered come to our table. Not one of the people bringing the meat had a smile on their face. Use to prefer Brazil Grill over the competitor, however now that the prices are almost similar, it's not worth going to Brazil Grill any longer.
Once more, Brazilian Grill proved to be the best one in Portland. Besides being cheaper than Fogo, the meat has that incomparable taste of being fresh, never frozen.
The Gauchos were extra friendly and made sure we got to taste all of the 12 cuts of meat they serve. Salad bar was quite delicious. It is more like a "Side Bar" than a salad bar.
Bring your appetite - good for meat lovers. There was nobody there to greet us when we arrived and it seemed a little dead but it was a bad weather night and they might have been short staffed because roads were crazy bad - but the food couldn't have been better.
Went back there and got the same fresh, delicious, cook to order meal. They also have some new items in the salad bar. Tara, the server gave us her impeccable service, always with a smile.
This time I took advantage of their free parking in the back of the building. Looking forward to go back there for my husband's birthday. Thank you Brazil Grill!!!
This is my 2 visit this year, it was much slower then then the last time I was hear, the food was good but i felt the flavor seemed a bit bland and the cold offerings seemed on the older side. The service was ok, I think our waitress was new, we were asked twice if this was our first time, and I noticed another time was asked that question as well and we were both served by this particular waitress. She was pleasant but a bit slow, we requested some cuts and other items and they came up well near the end of our dining experience. I wish everything was smoother or more fresh looking then I would give a 5 star. But it was not and this is my honest experience I am giving from a quiet Sunday dinner.
BEST Brazilian Steakhouse in Portland. You are greeted as if you were a family member. No wonder, it is "Family Owned and Operated".
The selection of meat is endless. I recommend the tri-tip, which is the most succulent. Of course, you will be offered 12 different meat cuts, shrimp, sausages, etc.
I also enjoyed the chicken hearts, which Fogo does not have. Also the price is less than Fogo.
Daniel, the Manager told me that the reason people like it so much is because everything is fresh. No frozen meat at all.
I am looking to my next visit there. By the way, I found no problem parking on the street, but was informed that they have private parking on the rear of the building.
Thank you Brazil Grill for a memorable dining experience.
We enjoyed the meal very much. However I would have liked to have the option of not having the salad bar or the cold bar, which I don't think I ever saw.
Food was great. Not very easy for those who like cooked red meat however. Waitress was wonderful and 2 of the meat servers we also!
It was a first time for my 5 year old son, mom and mother-in-law. It was the perfect thanksgiving meal. There was no chance for awkward conversation. We all left very full. The boy ate his weight in food and surprisingly tried a lot of new food. The people were very friendly and accommodating.
SERVICE ON A SWORD-Always welcoming crew! Meats served from a small sword at your table!! Check out their cool boots! Great mood every time I arrive there and when I leave.
ATMOSPHERE-Clean and unique. Small or large group seating. Relax and have a good talk and cocktail or wine or flip the button to green to gorge yourself with a huge variety of well prepared high quality meats.
FOOD-Bacon wrapped filet .. nailed it! You'll heart the chicken hearts!! Beef stroganoff.. off the charts! And for dessert..the pineapple!! Or brazilian chocolate cake or passionfruit mousse
P.s. get a whole pineapple to go!
SUM- It's like if you're willing to pay well for a well made meal, but then it comes and you're like dang that was awesome but I want more.. but don't want to pay twice for more of that.. then you're like I have to tell everyone!! They must know this secret!!
20th anniversary dinner. Didn't like that our table was middle and close to cold buffet. Wife doesn't like tables that are too close to each other. She suffers from anxiety. Should have request a booth. Been to several Brazilian steak house and this was very...small. Meat choices was limited but servers were very accommodating. If it wasn't for the staff, would have giving a lower rating. This is a good "starter" Brazilian Restaurant to people who never experienced one. For "experience " Brazilian steakhouse, you might be disappointed.
