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.

The good: The food was delicious. I've been to different Brazilian steakhouses and this one was equally as good.

The bad: Some of the waiters were quite rude and short with us, bad enough that it ruined the experience for us.

Brazil Grill is one of our favorite restaurants. The buffet bar is excellent, the sides are amazing, and the meat is incredible. The staf are so friendly and helpful. If you want delicious food like nowhere else then go to Brazil Grill. If you do, make sure to try the pineapple! It is like nothing else I've eaten. Every special occasion should be at Brazil Grill.

Prices raised and now half the menu we used to love is gone. Last week we visited and the half the meat was seasoned perfectly the rest was so oversalted we had to spit it out. The shrimp being replaced with sub par ribs were a huge disappointment.

This is the third or fourth time I've eaten there the service is always excellent the food is always good but be careful that salad bars so delicious it could ruin your meat experience and I recommend that you go light on the salads and heavy on the meat

Brazil Grill has been our go to restaurant for special occasions for many years. We had an opportunity to bring a couple who hadn't been there before. They had seen my wifes facebook post's for years and it wasn't hard to twist their arms to make the drive. As usual the food and service were excellent. We are disappointed to learn one of the key meats evidently has been discontinued. The filets wrapped in bacon were one of the meats most mentioned in conversations with other patrons and really the reason our guest were the most excited to visit. Evidently the shrimp were discontinued as well as they were not offered. There are other excellent cuts however this leaves a void in the experience. I strongly recommend the restaurant for any carnivores who like premium meats. If it is your thing they also have a nice salad bar with a nice selection. People we invite often grumble about the parking, this is never a major issue. There is a small lot behind the restaurant however we always opt for the metered parking along the main streets. The few dollars spent on the meters combined with the value of the meal still makes this the go to place for us!

Thank you Jamie for your kind words about Brazil Grill. Let me clarify that we did not discontinue serving the bacon wrapped fillet and shrimp. They are available at any time, as much as you want, but you just ask for them. We had some clients who preferred the fillet without the bacon. Now we give you a choice or both, if you wish. We also added shrimp cocktail to our cold salad bar. We are honored to have you patronizing us and hope to see you back very soon. Thank you again for your business.

Food was ok, some things were excellent such as the pineapple and the lamb....but overall nothing exceptional and not good enough to justify the cost. Perhaps it was because the roving meat folks seemed to continually miss our table. Our group of 4 were seated promptly per our reservation and the wait staff was friendly, although not very attentive. I had been wanting to try this place for a while, but after spending $300 on dinner for four with a couple bottles of wine I can’t think of a reason to return. Just “ok” for us....

I love, love Brazil Grill. I've been going since 2009 and I moved away several years ago, haven't been because of the distance. I absolutely adore the new ambiance and design; the food is even better. The salad bar selection is much larger and more interesting. My favorite meat is the lamb and desert is the grilled pineapple. Still in love with this place even after 10 years!

I would recommend the Brazil Grill, but make sure you don't read the menu as they no longer provide Fillet Mignon or the Grilled Shrimp Marinated in olive oil, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper. I would think they would let customers know about this change, or at the very least modify the menu to reflect this.

We had the salad bar at 5:15pm. Some items were very good. Chicken salad had been sitting out some time and discolored on top. Probably was made the prior day I suppose. Made us concerned for the freshness of other prepared salads. But the fresh salad items were good.

Meat in both the beans and in the stroganoff was tough and not tasty. Once we removed the meat both dishes were tasty. Overall the buffet items were disappointing.

The grilled pineapple with cinnamon was amazing. It was highlight of the night.

Brazil Grill feels and tastes like a sad Fogo de Chao knock off. The buffet was gross and disappointing and the meat was inferior. Wouldn’t recommend for the price, very underwhelming.

I was not a fan of the buffet concept. Food was fair at best. Service was slow. I would have appreciated the offer of clearing used plates from the buffet so we could more easily start from scratch with seconds.

As usual everything was absolutely superb at Brazil Grill. We went on a Saturday evening with a party of 12 and even though it was busy we were still served promptly and with whatever we desired. The ambiance, service and food were magnificent as always. I have been to Brazil Grill 50+ times and never once have I been disappointed. I would highly recommend Brazil Grill over the other Brazilian restaurant in Portland any day of the week.

They raised their price. We were still satisfied overall with their value. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is they didn't give me any of the pricing specials mentioned in the reservation - 1/2 priced Caprinhas (I know I didn't spell that right) and $XX off of dinner. Make sure if you see there are pricing specials when you book through OpenTable that you mention it to them when they prepare the bill, otherwise they don't apply them.
