I had never been to a Brazilian steakhouse before so I had no idea what to expect. Was very disappointed to find out I couldn’t take home when I hadn’t eaten. As a gastric bypass patient, I can only eat an extremely small amount at a time, so I sampled a little bit of nearly everything that came by, but only ate about 1/10 of it. It’s horrifying to me that my plate of food ended up being thrown away rather than letting me have it. I guess that’s how Brazilian steakhouses work, but I think it sucks.

However, what I was able to eat, which was a few bites of mashed potatoes and one bite of pork, chicken, sausage wrapped bacon, and a few other meats, were excellent. Ultimately I paid $45 for approximately 3-4 ounces of food. 😪

I personally loved going to Brazil grill. When I found out about their Groupon deal I wanted to take my entire family with me. It was a family event to celebrate a job changed for me. The loud noise from other guest was not what bothered me. It was the gaucho. Mainly the supervisor gaucho that was walking around with the meat. I felt limited and when I asked for more I felt judged. I didn't like that feeling and I felt disappointed as I have never felt this way here before. I may change to fogo de chao next time.

Service was excellent, every single one of them were great! But was little disappointed with meat component. Sirloin was the best steak they had... no ribeye, NY or filet at all. Hot appetizers, empanadas and fried polenta was very yummy!

Good food, but not great. Waited too long between serving meats and side dishes. Serving were small and mostly over cooked. Best thing was the pineapple. At several times, waited over 20 mins before servers came around to serve meats again. Our party are slim to medium build, even at that, we felt more hungry after we are then before arriving. Cocktails were poured weak, tasted very bland. At one point after waiting too long we just ordered desert, which was way overpriced for what you got.
I had to tell my party, sorry for the disappointment in our dinning experience. I have eaten at several Brazilian steakhouse similar, and this was by far, sub par.
For spending $80 a person for dinner and drinks, they are many other places Portland has to offer.
We felt this restaurant is on a downfall trend, cutting corners on everything, trying to make it thru this pandemic. They should be doing the opposite of they expect to attract new and repeat customers.

Amazing as always! Food, service, excellent!! There is a plexiglass barrier between booths now and the salad bar is no longer self-serve. I’m ok with that.
Glad to see that you’re still open!
One critique-
Do some research on the masks with ventilation. If you’re positive for COVID-19, it can spread through the vent.

The filet mignon was amazing. All the meat is amazing. I do wish it had some sort of a better balance to the courses. Yes the salad bar is endless but was not offered it for the first meal. We had to ask for it which a again was not a big and we had never been there and didn't know how anything worked. If we had a better intro to the experience it may of been different but the food definitely makes up for all of it. We had amazing and friendly staff we are definitely going back

Very authentic and family run. I have not been to Brazil but based on my other travels it felt like something you walk into in their country of origin. Our experience was 2 weeks after restaurants reopened due to Covid, so they had to change their process from the all you can eat salad/meat bar. But i thought they did a great job bringing everything to the table. We sat outside on the patio and it was great.

My favorite restaurant in Portland (or anywhere) by far. The staff remember me when I come in, call me by my name, and do whatever they can to make sure their guests are satisfied. They bring out my favorite meats and give me as much as I can eat. They treat everyone as though they're regular customers.

If you like Brazilian-style meats, definitely worth going to Brazil Grill as opposed to the large chain down the road. I much prefer giving my money to local, independent businesses like this one.

I was ecstatic once they reopened, as I was jonesing during the lockdown!!

The only thing that would make this place over the top is if they would let us take home the food that we still have on our plate. We hate wasting, and I think anything we touch we should be able to bring home.

Great experience. Everything was clean- we wore masks just going in, and could remove them while at our table. Waiters brought sides to us, rather than getting up and picking them out ourselves.

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.

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.
