Brazilian Steakhouse
Bullvino's Churrascaria is a family owned traditional Brazilian steakhouse located in Lowertown St. Paul, MN. Churrascaria, which translates from the Portuguese word "barbecue" is served all-you-can-eat. Roving waiters serve the barbecued meats from large skewers directly onto the seated diners' plates allowing each guest to enjoy a variety of options. Included in our flat rate pricing is our large self serve salad bar which has a wide range of salads, soups, meats, and cheeses.

Bullvino's Churrascaria was established in the spring of 2021 by two partners who each have a lifetime of experience working in churrascaria style restaurants. Through their experience they have assembled a dedicated team of service professionals who have perfected the art of churrascaria down to the finest detail.

Bullvino's Churrascaria is the product of a lifetime of hard work, dedication, and Brazilian pride. We welcome you to come visit and enjoy the heart of Brazilian hospitality right here in MN.

Food was decent, but most of the staffs were not friendly at all. We asked one of the waiter if he could bring food for my kid and he said yes. However, after asking him twice, we did not get the food. We were ignored a few times. It was not really crowded at that time. We really wanted to like there, but it was a bit disappointing.

Waited 30 mins for table even though I have reservation. People arrived after me got table first. Hostess seems confused about seating order.

Excellent selection of meats. Salad bar had an interesting variety of offerings. Signature cocktails were expertly crafted.
Staff was very busy the night we visited and it took awhile to get requests to our table. I will say that there was a manager or lead waiter that often checked our table and expediated requests.

The meat was not the best, even the premium cuts. Definitely not worth the money paid. We had to wait for awhile for our drinks and in the meantime several staff approached us to ask if we’d already ordered, took the drink orders again and again disappeared into the night. Overall, the atmosphere was a bit chaotic.

We visited Bullvinos for Fathers Day after going to Fogo in Minneapolis for Mother’s Day, so there’s a basis for comparison. For a first time visit, blew us away! Quick service, great atmosphere in the building, good space between the tables for comfort, and of course great food! Servers were frequently at the table refilling water, dropping off cheese bread, and making sure our needs were met. I can’t recommend this place enough, and that’s from a first visit! Worth the money, especially for a place so recently opened up!

Received an excellent wine recommendation. Celebrating a birthday so complimentary dessert which was also delish. The basic tier is plenty to be satisfied but we went for it all. Would go back as the meat was amazing. Fogo buns are still better tho.

The ambience is nice, the food was good but I wouldn't say great. The beef selections were very good, pork ribs and bacon wrapped chicken was very dry. The bread (can't remember what they're called) were ok, some really dry and some not. Salad bar was average. I'm prefer my food to be less salty, my husband prefers salty. I would say some of the beef selections were too salty, he disagreed.

I was absolutely impressed with the service of the staff. Everyone was so welcoming and made sure we were comfortable. When we were seated, I noticed our table was near a ledge that overlooked the bottom floor. I admit, I am an adult and I’m absolutely terrified of heights. I sat at my table afraid, until I decided to ask our server if it was possible to move tables, somewhere near the front windows of the restaurant. By this time, I was already in tears talking with the server and hostess. It was embarrassing for me, but they treated me with such kindness and compassion. They were able to accommodate me and my family without issue. I hope to one day return as the food was amazing. The little side of spice they bring to your table was the perfect compliment to the meat. I wish I could give a much higher rating. Thank you to everyone there for making our first experience at your restaurant great!

This place was an excellent option, especially for those in the east metro. We love Fogo, but now we only have travel to St.Paul to get the same feel, if not better.

From the moment you walk in you feel welcomed. The service is unmatched. The food is sooo flavourful! The pepper sauce is to die for. The salad bar is spectacular and fresh. I've been here 3 times since they've opened and I'll continue coming because it's that good.

Food was good. Some meats seemed pretty low quality and tough. They could have come around more. Never even saw the beef ribs. Some meats weren’t even around.
Service was great otherwise.
Main concern is the floors were too waxed and VERY slippery to me.
Now, that said, it was. GREAT experience!!! Family loved the experience and the ambiance was amazing!!

Overpriced. Was served supposed garlic sirloin that was so tough I couldn't chew it (mentioned this to the server). Overall quality of meat was questionable. In addition to the overpriced food, one of the most overpriced win lists I've ever seen. From the time we sat down, we were rushed by the servers. Seemed like we didn't have time to relax and enjoy our cocktails, salad, etc. Not sure why they rushed us, since there were plenty of tables available. Pluses: we visited the restaurant for our son's birthday, as he likes Brazilian steakhouses. He enjoyed it. Also appreciate that he got a free dessert. But the high prices for everything else probably covered for that.

Another great experience at Bullvinos. This time the pepper is spicy so just perfect level. My passion fruit drink this time have a hint of bitterness but still good. Last time no bitterness at all.
