Grilled with Cinnamon and Sugar
Lightly Salted (By Request Only)
Fried Till Crispy, Tossed in Parmesan
plenty of great meats though they didn't have all that was on the menu. The salad bar - not that thats what we were there for - was pretty meager
The food was amazing and the Gauchos timing was on point! Perfectly seared, tasty and tender cuts of meat, great sides and a nice salad bar.
I love the atmosphere, authentic, quiet and comfortable. I have been here many times and it is always my first choice when entertaining guests.
I love the variety of the salad bar. The grilled shrimp is my favorite dish, it’s only served to order so be sure to inquire if you don’t see a Gaucho carrying a skewer. The caramelized cinnamon pineapple is amazing, save it for last and call it dessert!
Having dined at this establishment many times, weekdays and early in the weekends are the best times to go. This particular experience was very pleasant. The service was excellent and the staff were friendly and extremely attentive. I thoroughly enjoyed the salad bar and the sides were brought out quickly! The meats were fresh and delicious (must try the lamb). I also noticed the new cocktails and the add on of condensed milk to the lemonades were something everyone’s gotta try. My friend tried the Quentão (hot cocktail) and she hasn’t shut up about how great it was. Definitely coming back!
We've been to Brazil Grill many times in the past, this last time was probably the worst visit. We got seated in the very back, the servers constantly walked past us, even though our puck was green the entire time, when we did get the food it was extremely fatty and cold. For a Saturday dinner rush, they were not prepared at all, food bar had completely empty bowls, they were out of nearly everything. They were definitely under staffed, our waitress spent a majority of the time focusing on the large party next to us. Took nearly 20 minutes to get beverages, and just about the same for refills and water. For the amount we paid, the experience just was not there this time. Was even double charged for beverages, but at that point it would have taken another 30 minutes to get a new check. We tried to be understanding due to the shortages because of covid, however, do not offer it as an option if it's not actually available, there are ways to make up and be as prepared as possible, especially at 50.00/plate. Also, there should be signs of masks and glove requirements around the food bar if that is in fact mandatory, not rudely state to some and not others. It will be a while before we come back, if we do.
The service was very delayed on an average it would take 15 to 20 minutes for them to circle around with a choice of meat. The older waiter was very rude never came back to our table after my 10-year-old son asked for a second slice a pineapple. The younger waiter was super sweet. There was just A lot of delay we’ve been going to Brazil grill for about 10 years and I’ve always enjoyed it but don’t feel like I will be going back anytime soon. You can tell they are working on a budget some of our favorite foods are no longer available
Some if the beef dishes were well done and dry. No ribs. No chicken hearts. No excuse.
Very nice, awesome food, will definitely come back!
Food was bland. Service was slow. Long wait for drinks. Some meats were undercooked.
Amazing customer service! Thank you for everything!
Had to ask many time for items to come around. It was our guest first time here. We had made a big deal out come here because our first visit was wonderful. This time not so great.
the quality of the food has changed dramatically in the past 2 year. We were very disappointed. We have gone to brazil grill for our anniversary very year. And I don't think we will be going back
The food was good however the service was not. We were skipped over time and time again, and at one point my husband asked one of the servers if we could have some of what he was circulating and he told him to hold on, proceeded to other tables and didn't return to our table. We will be trying a different Brazilian grill next time.
Brazil grill does not disappoint. It is our only go to restaurant for special occasions as well as normal outings. If you are a meat eater this is the place for you. It is well over a hour drive for us and there are never regrets. If you haven't tried this restaurant then put it on your must do list. Already looking forward to our next visit.
Salad bar and sides are mediocre at best but the meat and service was great. Great place to try but will not be back.
It was great except they ran out of most of their sides while we were there.
Update Salasd bar and offer doner cuts. Cheeses looked a little old. But overall I was pleased
The place was dirty
The food was terrible
The salad bar was terrible
Overall a waste of money
Wonderful food! Food servers had real pizazz! Definitely would recommend :)
Love this place! Very authentic. Come HUNGRY!
It was sad to see them so short staffed. We have been coming to this restaurant 2 to 3 times a year for the past eight years. When we first arrive it took almost 15 minutes before the host came to get our drink orders. And then for the first 30 minutes we hardly got any kind of meat brought to our table because they were eight other tables in the room and we seem to be the last one having food brought to our table and the food was usually going to the other tables 1st. After about 30 minutes to 45 minutes and a few tables left we then started getting food on a regular basis. Once that happened we had a wonderful evening. The wait staff apologized for the slow response and acknowledged the skeleton crew. Overall experience was wonderful but there were a few hiccups.
Great service and very good food! Been going to BG for over 10 years
Really a great place. Definitely recommend to anyone.
Glad to hear you had a great time! We hope to see you again soon.
Sadly, our last visit to Brazil Grill before their building was donated and they had to close their doors. We hope they are looking for a new building and can reopen soon!
I've dined there many times, must have been an off night.
Table was ready when we arrived 5 min ahead of time. Seated immediately and drinks brought to table promptly. Amazing food that was cooked to perfection. Definitely recommend Brazilian Grill 10-10 for sure.
Brilliant as usual. Excellent service and excellent food. Brazil Grill is by far one of the best restaurants in Portland.
To be fair, the venue had a very large party outside of being a full house. Service (this time: bar, general) compared to other times we have visited was very slow. Because Brazil Grill attempts to make each party’s experience unique they should have had more staff in on hand to enable quick service.
The buffet line was cold. Our reservation was for 830pm when they closed at 9pm. However, if an establishment is still seating guests says, the expectation is to have the same quality experience as any guest prior to their seating time.
The meats (save for the chicken bacon) were masterfully cooked and juicy. However the overall selection was very limited compared to previous visits.
Overall we will return as Brazil Grill offers superior cuisine with excellent atmosphere.
We love this place for a unique dinner out & support of a local business!
Brazil Grill has a nice atmosphere and friendly staff. The food was on point. We enjoyed our time that we stayed a lot longer than we should & the staff did not mind. They were really friendly about it. Would definitely go back again!
Staff was excellent. Hostess was running around busy all night. The meats were good, but a bit overcooked. Salad bar was stocked, but a few things were empty and did not get refilled. Parking was a nightmare. Nothing anywhere including in the attached parking lot.
So that Pineapple is the BEST.
Food was Excellent!
4 solid gold Forks!
We got to the restaurant and were very excited since this is was all of our first experience here. When we went into the building we were immediately turned off from all the children screaming. The place was packed and we waited to get our reservation seated. As we were waiting to be seated, we noticed that there was a vegetable/salad bar that was so dirty with food all over the bar and a lot of cross contamination of one food spilled into another container pf
food. Some of the utensils were actually in the food container. we need is a couple of kids walking up to the bar by themselves licking their fingers and touching every utensil. I noticed a whole rib other food were on the floor and was walked by a few times from a couple
of waiters but bo one cleaned it up.
We finally get seated and our table was so dirty. Some had food sticking to their pants and all over the table was a gooey, sticky substance that looked and felt like peanut butter. after all of this we were unable to contain our anxiety due to the uncleanness we had to leave.
We are a family of food needs. (Celiac, dairy) they were very accommodating and careful with everything. Out to dinner with the whole family and no one had issues. Highly recommended!!!
I had been there about 10 years earlier and I’m was as impressed this visit as I was a decade ago. That speaks well to the establishment’s management.
It was really good, we will go back, food amazing and great service.
Absolutely love the cuts of beef and the pineapple is to die for!
Just go to Fogo.
The salad bar was sloppy. They never refilled it in the hour we were there. The service was nonexistent. Even the gauchos were inattentive. The food was fine. We ordered the shrimp “side” and after waiting 45 minutes for it, what we got was old stale shrimp slathered in a garlic spread. We couldn’t eat it. The kicker is they use that exact same recipe for the bread. Stale. Slathered in the same spread. Some of the meat was fine I guess but the gauchos didn’t have enough of it ever to make a full round.
Seriously. We should have just gone to Fogo.
