The food is horrible. Not many options for meat. Anyone who thinks this is great should try Brazilian bbq in China.
The waiter will recommend many additional drinks/food with the cart just like the way they serve bbq without telling you that you need to pay extra for them...
We made reservations a few weeks before, but still wait for 15 more minutes when we arrive there.

Holiday made it very crowded but the state was on top of things, making sure we were taken care of the diners. The salad bar offered above average items as well as a special Thanksgiving turkey breast that was mouth wateringly tender! The meat served at the table was perfectly seasoned. The table sides were tasty, especially the mashed potatoes and fried bananas. Our server, Michelle did a great job caring for our group of six. She was on top of things!

I have been here several times and this was the first time I left disappointed and like I did not get a good value. The food was bland ...it was a quality cut of meat and it was cooked perfectly but there was a lack of flavor that is nothing short of disappointing especially since I have always loved the food here. The pluses...the drinks were delicious...but took too long to get refills.

Won’t be going in for a while. Had my reservation and hostess said we couldn’t be able to dine in because of an “event” later on my girlfriend called and they said it was good. We come back and hostess says in Spanish that she mentioned we can’t be helped today. Eventually they sat us after no one would ask us if everything was ok. Mash were dryer than the desert. Very disappointed since I’m there 3-4 times a month

We have been to this Portland location several times and others around the country. This was by far the worst experience. The salad bar was fairly empty compared to even lunches we have been to (this was for a birthday dinner). It was very disappointing. We also ordered a beer - an IPA- and they were out. Then a vodka drink but they were out of The vodka we ordered. It seemed like they were actually going out of business.

We got the earliest reservations for the night, 8pm and were surprised that the salad bar (side bar?) was not well stocked and never was for the entire two hours we were there. How were they not prepared for a full restaurant? Dishes were chipped and cracked. Food is good, but if you can only afford one nice dinner every once in a while, you get much more bang for your buck with service, and quality at Ringside. They don’t have off nights.

This place has gone way downhill. Checked in for our reservation ten minutes early, but we weren’t seated until nearly twenty minutes later. Had to wait at least ten minutes after asking more than one person for a soup bowl. Much of the food on the self service bar was picked through and sparse. Super unappetizing. Repeatedly had to find someone and ask them to send the meat people by. These are just a few things. Overall pretty bad experience. Won’t be going back.

Inattentive service and mediocre food. I could've dealt with one or the other but the combination is synergistically disappointing. They ran out of mashed potatoes for want of clean mixing bowls, no one offered to refresh my cocktail, and other sides didn't arrive until we harangued a server from another table to bring rolls to our table. My party had been looking forward to this outing for weeks and are sad we spent our evening here. I won't be back.

I brought my husband here for his birthday since I can never cook his steak right. He was so pleased with all the varieties of meats. I settled for the salad bar which worked fine for me. I was hoping with arriving at 7:45 on a Thursday night we would have a not so busy seating. The bar/lobby had people waiting for their tables. We got seated at about 7:50. Service is very attentive everyone making sure things are taken care of. We were in a corner area and the meat was coming regularly until a table of 4 came and seemed to run out of meat before making it to my husband. I mentioned something to our wait staff and shortly after the meat was coming regularly to our table. He loved it! The various different cuts and choices of beef, lamb, pork, and chicken made it for a very enjoyable meal for him. The experience of watching someone carve meat to your order was perfect for him. My only disappointment was the cocktail cart that came around with mango habanero caipirinha, I thought $14.00 for a small 6oz drink was overpriced. All in all yes we will be back for special occassions.

Service was good but Meats were not flavorful. Sirloin pieces were little dry. Pork loins were tasty but little salty.

I had a toddler with me for a family dinner, and would not recommend it for children. Lesson learned. The churrasceria's regularly passed me up because I was tending to my toddler because she was restless. We had sat for an hour before they began to bring us meat which was on minimal occassions. They forgot an order for a person in our party. For me it is was a COMPLETE waste. Will not be returning.

The food was not worth the money paid. The servers appear reluctant to give customers food and begrudgingly give small amounts of meat. Seafood should not be additional cost.

Used to love it here, but something has changed! Quality has been lost. Even with reservations, there is always a long wait to be seated, then wait for any service. Missing items, and a general lack of interest by staff.

The food was good. However, our waitress never told us her name, nor how the meal worked, or checked on us during the meal. At the end of the meal she had totally disappeared. We had to ask another waiter, Caleb, to help us pay our bill so we could leave. Caleb was great! Our waitress, who we could only distinguish a difference from her and the other waiters was by her red hair, because she never told us her name, was horrible. It’s way too expensive for that kind of terrible service. And we were a table of 10. We will not be returning!

The one item that I was hoping to see at this location was grilled Pineapple. They had pineapple at the buffet, however, the other Brazilian restaurants I have visited have all had servers walking around with Grilled pineapple.

I suggest they add some grilled pineapple to their meal course.

Please insure you read the fine print on the "best of brazil". It states featuring our best cuts, however, the fine print states Dinner does not include NY Strip, Beef Ribs, Ribeye, Filet Mignon or Lamb Chops. Those are the best cuts. They do try to upsell.
In addition, we were not offered Bacon wrapped steak,fire grilled cheese, pork,pork ribs, or spicy pork sausage. A bit disappointed.

Overall good experience. Food was great! Service was decent. A lot of the staff seemed a bit frazzled for some reason. Takes forever to get a refill of water. Music was louder than it needed to be. Just small things that if changed, would really improve the environment and experience.

We used to come here every week...and we can tell the overall quality keeps going down. Compared with other Fogo restaurant (minneapolis, San Francisco, Vegas, Seattle, NYC, Boston) we visited, this one in Portland is the worst..

Our most recent visit, the waitress who leads us to the table is horrible, definitely need some training. Keep asking the same questions...we requested water without ice, but still bring water with tons of ice...

The servers providing table-side cutting are as great as usual. Food and drinks are still great, except for they discontinued several cuts we normally love.
