I took my son and he really enjoyed it! The meats were amazing and the grilled pineapple divine! It was pretty dead inside, thanks COVID, but the music was nice and the staff was attentive. Definitely come hungry and don’t fill up too much on the salad bar offerings!

I usually frequent Brazil Grill monthly with friends for a get together. Last week’s occasion was a night out with my 3 sons for dinner. As usual, Brazil Grill did not disappoint. The service, food and ambiance was absolutely amazing. This is a small, family and locally owned restaurant, that gives you all the attention and love you crave when dining out. You get the personal care and tending to that you don’t get from the “other” Brazilian restaurant in town. Thank you again for always going above and beyond to make sure my dining experience at your establishment is always amazing.

I remember this to be a great experience- Maybe COVID has taken it down in quality. Downtown PDX not a good outdoor experience.
May try back after COVID

Not The same! Selection has changed
No shrimp or filet, salad bar was not impressive. We used to come before the pandemic and decided to come back for date night and it was Not the same. You have to request the pineapple! Dinner price went up but selection went down.

Good food. I loved the waiter who came & cut the meat for us. He mentioned to us that he was Brazilian & I believe his name started with an S. He was so Much fun, charming, & really connected with all of us at the table. I had a somewhat bigger group than expected & they took care of us.

Perhaps our server was new but he continually ignored two adults in the party. Also we had a younger than 12 year old charged as adult.

Food was good. Some of the meat served was dry and cold. The pineapple was amazing. Drinks weren't kept filled, lots of waiting for food to come around. Wasn't too impressed with the Salad bar. We took our 4 kids with us for my sons birthday and they make you pay 18% gratuity. So we had to pay $50 to take our family out to dinner for mediocre service never had that happen before. Go to Fogo everyone!

Our server had zero personality. The buffet was not being stocked. I had to ask 3 times for shrimp and 4 times for the pork. Otherwise all they want to serve you is the chicken wrapped in bacon. The steaks were dry. The price was crazy for salad, some stroganoff, and chicken. We will not be back, Fogo De Chao is a way better deal, top cut meats, and delicious buffet.

I don’t think there is a single good thing I can say about this place. The food was unflavored and undercooked, steak was served raw and cold. The majority of our time was spent waiting for any food to be brought out and served, we noticed that was what was happening at all the other tables as well. It seemed like none of the wait staff really knew what to do. Overall our experience here was awful and not worth the time or money spent.

in the past month i have been to your restaurant twice; each time bringing new people to share the experience with. Unfortunately the service was terrible both times. we waited over a half hour for plates and multiple times waited on our waitress to realize our glasses were empty. The servers were hit and miss, the first time I took my sister and brother in law and we were skipped over more than a handful of times even when the servers were obviously walking right passed us as if to purposely not look our direction and when I waved someone down I was greeted with attitude and told that we were not forgotten about. needless to say i talked up the restaurant a little too much because they wont be going back....the second time i took my cousin and his wife...a lot of the same thing happening and this time the restaurant was not full as we were there right at opening. this time around was a lot of waiting and having to wave to servers and our waitress as well as terrible portions. we were literally cut off thumb sized meat portions and when we asked for a second cut received an even smaller piece and looked at as if we were demanding something out of the ordinary. all in all i will be back because i like the food and there is no other place like it but it would be nice if the staff was a little more trained and friendly.

Had to wait long periods of time for refills, sides, etc.
Got skipped multiple times with cuts of meat we really wanted to try.
Staff didn’t seem as friendly with our group as other there.

I heard about this place from several friends as being reasonably priced with excellent food. I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly, fun and efficient staff. The food was all perfectly cooked. While the meats were so delicious, my favorite was the grilled pineapple. I would highly recommend this place for date night, a special occasion or a random Tuesday.

To be honest, we were disappointed. While the food was good, the selections available didn't match the menu (some meat choices weren't served) and it a long time for those that were available to make their way to our table. There was lot's of sausage and tri-tip being served, but the good stuff (lamb and picanah) was very available. Also, the interior wasn't what we expected. Thought it would be more like a steakhouse but it was a very open interior. I just think they were still working the kinks out from reopening. Still a place worth checking out.

The food quality was good like usual but the service getting things was really slow. It took really long periods of time to get drinks(even soda). The folks bringing the meats to your table did not come around that much and didn’t seem to have large enough pieces of meat to leave you more then a small sample. We had to ask for the pineapple three times before we saw one. They are probably just short staffed because of recent reopen from pandemic.

This is by far the worst experience I’ve had dining at Brazil Grill. I have been several times and this time has ruined it for me now. Not sure I’ll ever go back. The service was atrocious, they were out of about half of the items from the salad bar and we made several requests for meat and it’s as if they just wanted to ignore us and give us a bad experience on purpose.
Would request additional drinks and have to remind the servers many times before they would bring them. We gave up on the meat requests, paid and left.
Disgusting!

I tend to love Brazil Steakhouse but this was utterly the worst experience I have ever had for fine dining. I know things are just now opening back up but good god was it tragic.

Our reservation was 6:30, we seat down and it took the servers 35 minutes for us to get water and plates to get.

The meal was decent overall, I can see the servers struggling with 2 only waiting 40-50 so people. But I feel like that’s a management issue. Meanwhile, the hostess literally did absolutely nothing to assist traffic flow.

During our meal, we requested water 3-4 separate times, this took about an hour just to get water so we could continue our meal. By this point, I was about to ask for a refund because my infant daughter was super dehydrated.

At the end of our service, it took 45 minutes to get a check to pay out tab. I don’t think this place will last much longer.


I wasn’t the only person having this type of experience. You can see and feel the energy from other tables also.

The food was OK, some was better than others, overall very salty, and very poor service as the waiter RARELY came around and when he did, you can tell he didnt want to be there.

We asked for more drinks, they never came, we asked for more side dishes, they never came!!

Probably wont return

We decided to come here before restaurants shut down in Portland for a month. It was really the only restaurant we wanted to go to before the shutdown because they don't do takeout, and the meat, especially the beef, is moist, tender and nicely seasoned. The sides are okay to good, but not outstanding, but we go here for the grilled meat, which is what you think a Brazilian steakhouse excels at. It's a little spendy but not as spendy as their competitor in downtown Portland. We will be back here as soon as they're able to open up again.
