    Dinner at Costela was AMAZING!! The Churrasco Experience was perfect for our Anniversary! The salad bar was fresh with lots of salad options, the smoked salmon delicious and the lobster bisque lovely! Our favorite meats were the filet, lamb, sausage and garlic picanha!

    We had a delicious and beautiful meal on Thursday, which means we ordered off the menu. Our waiter, Gill, was professional, warm and welcoming, an expert in answering our questions about everything on the menu. The meal was well paced, and Gill kept us apprised of when our meal would be ready five minutes from when he placed the meals in front of us. He didn’t hover. He didn’t overstay with conversation, but checked in on us taking cues from our conversation and progress enjoying our meals. Gill was excellent. Plated, our meal was colorful and beautiful, and just as delicious as we anticipated. The setting was warm, decadent, and every table had more than plenty of room to offer a feeling of privacy, but with a wide open view of the well appointed interior as well as the lovely Saginaw River. This restaurant will impress a date (provided nobody is a vegetarian, and especially not a vegan), and would be wonderful for any occasion a couple or many would like to enjoy an authentic experience and be able to have conversations throughout the night.

    We wanted to order off the menu and didn't know it was meat & buffet. $27 for skimpy salad bar was way over priced.

    Food quality and taste was very good. Wait time between food items was a problem. Also wine menu listed a wine we were interested in as available by the glass but the waiter later had to tell us it was only available by the bottle. Offered some other wines. Reservation site did not mention only a limited menu available for New Year's Eve dinning.

    The ambiance was good, menu offered plenty of options, the server was very nice and the food was very good. Service was a little slow, we asked for water twice and did not receive, we asked for more bread, never received and had some drain/fruit flies join us for dinner. Although we experienced some issues, we will be back.

    Pricey, but very nice, and the food was very good. The hostess was kind of ubrupt and was not smiling, and we had reservations. Our server, though, was nothing short of amazing from her quick service, to her recommendations. She also had impeccable timing from starters & soup to when entrees were brought out. I had the Picahna steak and my wife had the cherry glazed lamb chops. Value for food for the lamb not great, but I would get the steak again in a heartbeat. Lobster bisque was also very good.

    Food was good not outstanding as I thought it would be for the price and i wish the meats were cooked better, the chicken was kinda dry but our server was nice but forgot my drink and had to ask for it to remind him. The gentleman coming around with the meat skewers was new but did a fantastic job and was super nice. Probably won't return for the Sunday experience but want to try a regular dinner day. My reservation said it was our anniversary but no one acknowledged that or asked if we were celebrating anything. But not a bad experience overall

    This is not a regular Brazilian Steak house….they are very stingy with the meat. Refused to give us extra portions of a specific meat we wanted.

    This is probably my fault but didn't realize that they no only offer the true churrasco style and served rodízio sytle on Sundays. Food was good, Service was better. Of course we will be back, but probably only on Sundays for the time being.

    We had a 6:15 dinner reservation. The restaurant was not very packed and we were seated at our table immediately. We were then poured waters and told that someone would be back to take our drink orders and to go over the menu with us. 45 minutes later, multiple attempts to get the attention of someone to take our order, and we decided to get up and leave. I was really looking forward to tasting the food and it looked / smelled amazing on everyone else’s plates.

    Walked in at our reservation time and said hi to the five staff at the door standing there—no response. I thought off the bat that was pretty rude. No hello, how are you, not even a smile. After five minutes of awkwardly standing there with no interaction one of them asked TWICE which I answered TWICE “do you have reservations”…which we did. They were not attentive whatsoever and I felt that set the vibe right then and there. Five people standing there and didn’t even look at us or say hello as we stood there for five minutes? Not acceptable. Our waitress was super sweet so we were happy with her. However that’s about as far as it went. The lamb chops were small and tough, chicken was dry, the Alfredo pasta was dry and cold. Mashed potatoes were also cold. However my steak was cooked well and very good. Not sure about $33 good, but it was definitely better than the other food at our table. The prices of the meals were not inexpensive by any means and the price should reflect the quality, which it did not. Way too expensive for the sub par quality 100%. I wish we would have just went to Real Seafood and spend our $150 there instead. We will not be back.

    Do not come here thinking it’s a normal Brazilian steakhouse. They only do the full Brazilian exp on Sundays. No where does it say that on the website nor OpenTable at time we went. The place was pretty much empty on a Saturday night at 6pm. Not a good sign.

    Upon first arriving and being seated for our reserved time it took 20 mins before any server greeted us but that was more or so the seating staff that did not communicate that after that Juan noticed us and took over the situation since no one else was he did a great job and was nice to talk too. Food came out hot and was upon some of the best I have been served at a restaurant and I’m not easy to please being that I have been cooking for many years. Definitely would suggest this place to anyone visiting or living in bay city. Great Job!
