Brazil Grill Ratings and Reviews
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.
Wonderful first time experience! Impeccable service and it was fun, delicious and made for a wonderful dining experience. A must for all carnivores! Recommendation - The Culotte cut is outstanding! Juicy, beefy and melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness. Cannot wait to go another round!
We tried to get walk in to Fogo De Chao but we wouldn’t be seated until 9 pm. The bartender told us about Brazil Grill. So my family and I walked several blocks (in Portland rain) and we were not disappointed. The food was great and the service was excellent! Must have side dishes: fried polenta and Bbq’d pineapples!
Dinner was a little disappointing. I've been to Brazil Grill a few times before and the food and service was much better. The food seems to have gone downhill a bit, lacking flavor and dry. The service was slow and inattentive. I noted on the reservation that it was my birthday and it wasn't mentioned by the staff at all. We ordered chicken livers and we were warned it would take 10 minutes. It took 25 minutes because the server didn't put the order in to the kitchen. May try them again but for a hundred dollar meal for two we probably will go elsewhere.
If your into packing away some meat this is one of the places U would choose. 12 different types of grilled meats & interesting fried polenta. Never tried the P B4 & don't think Nonna would get it! Overall place is good for client dinners and the occasional special meal.
Everything is generally great. Except this time, the young man acting as our waiter . Was slow and wouldn't check on us for drink refills. Had to keep asking him . I was drinking coke, and my buddy was drinking beer . That was the only issue. I usually dine here every 4 to 6 weeks. These last two months i have been here 5 times trying to introduce friends to the experience.
They forgot to assign us a server, so we waited for water for a while and even to pay the bill. Salad bar is small but good. Next to us there was a Kids's party so it was a little loud. The waitress was talking to the kid's parent for a while so the gauchos were going to another direction and we weren't getting meat until I asked one of the waiters for assistance. The food is amazing, but service needs some improvement. The waiter apologized in the end, but they saw us there before and did nothing.
We went there for anniversary celebrations, my husband and I and our daughter and her husband. It had been recommended to us by our other daughter. It was fabulous! Our son-in-law can be kind of picky and he loved it. I don't know know how they keep the meats so moist and tender, but they were all wonderful. It was a fun, new dining experience.
And the servers were great. Our waiter was very good.
This place is good if you want a quiet dining. The place was not packed on a Friday evening so that may change depending on how many people are dining in. We had a bottle of wine that was overpriced but it was ok. That's what you pay for in every restaurants too anyway. The meats were a little bit dry but their grilled pineapple was awesome! Also, the salad bar was good too! My boyfriend and liked the potato salad and the broccoli salad.
