Definitely a nice place to go with family and friends.
The service and the food was great. My favorite is the house special and the roasted pineapple
Very poorly managed - not enough employees and poor service
The services was horrible. It’s could be because it was restaurant week and the servers seem busy. The “Gauchos” I believe they are called (The guys that cut the meat) didn’t ask about the guests preference in temp of the steak. I received rare, medium rare, and medium pieces of steak. The seasoning of the steak was very lack luster. The house special was the most flavorful piece of steak but at times it was too salty which required us to drink water (that we didn’t have). The salad bar was interesting. There was lasagna, chicken wing dings, ribs and salmon. The were also the usual sides you get at Brazilian steakhouses (mashed potatoes, rice, the cheese bread and cold salads. Unfortunately this is not a place I would return too.
I never been to a buffet style steakhouse so it was different. They had plenty of food. I was taking my man out to celebrate his promotion. He's an ALL meat eater so I knew he would love it but he was disappointed they didn't have filet mignon. So I'm going to have to go again. Overall I enjoyed it! That pineapple is the truth! The food was fresh.... omg....I almost forgot I wanted a fruity drink.... passion fruit drink they made was TO DIE FOR!
Great experience. Great food. I would recommend for date night.
A great way for me and my friend to start restaurant week. My friend a newbie to Brazilian Steakhouse this was the perfect spot. The meat options were excellent. Unlike others spots where you flip the card, the servers continually come around. Because we were there early there was plenty of space for social distance and the buffet provided both gloves and sanitizer. There was plenty of street parking nearby. I would visit this restaurant again maybe during brunch.
We ate during restaurant week and the value was good and my son was the one who chose the place.
The meat was good!
No sooner than we sat down at our seats with full plates from the buffet that the men came around with all the meats. There was no room on our plates and after trying to tell them to come back after we made some room, we gave up and just made them pile it on. All we received were the ends of the steaks. We weren't able to take our time with our plate from the buffet and instead felt terribly rushed. Unfortunately, we will not be back.
food was pretty salty, the mushroom sauce, the fried rice, and some of the meats. the meat was so very succulent tho. I'd still go back. I loved the ambience an the staff is very attentive. This was my first time.
We had an amazing date night! The food and service was awesome. 10/10 recommend
I didn't realize this was just buffet style meals which is odd to offer during a pandemic. The service was a bit chaotic and confusing to first time diners. It was okay but I wouldn't go back.
Great time and great food ! I wish the tables weren’t soo close together but other than that this place is soo worth the money definitely will be going again.
When you go in without an expectation and then are surprised that the service and consistent care is amazing..that's a place recommend. The buffet was organised and well stocked. The. Drinks strong and the staff with the meat service to the table were continuously there and professional. Come and enjoy the Picanha!!
The food was good, service was great until a large party arrived. The dining room customers all took a big hit with service, food stopped coming out and nobody to take our rink orders. My partners birthday desert came out and mine never came.
I spoke to the manager who apologized and comped the drinks, but I will not be returning.
The meat was too SALTY. The meat (regardless of the cut) was too CHEWY... practically inedible. I have been to other Argentinian style restaurants where the quality of the food was much much better. I will NOT be back. Nevertheless, the staff and service was excellent. Not their fault they are serving such a poor quality product.
Awesome experience !!! Very friendly wait staff! The cinnamon pineapple was amazing!!!
The salad bar was excellent, but the meats were mediocre in quality and very salty. Every time a server arrived, they would show me an attractive, medium rare view of the item and then slice off a meager overdone edge. The atmosphere is more like a 50's kitchen than a high-end restaurant.
Went for dinner for youngest sons Birthday. Been to a lot of Brazilian BBQ restaurants in the past. Probably not in my top 10. Food was mediocre, atmosphere very cold. Not what I expected at all
EXCELENTE SERVISIOS EL STAFF EXCELENTE Y LA COMIDA MUY RICA
We were celebrating my sister’s birthday - they could not accommodate her dietary needs the way the other similar places have done in the past
Efficient service, excellent selections, great for birthday celebrations. Salad bar has many options for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. All food preferences considered
Great food, Attentive service and delicious drinks.
This is by far my favorite steakhouse in Philly. Better then all the others
Food was good, salad bar and sides were great. Nice ambiance. Our server was a bit inattentive for drink orders/dessert. We had 2 members of our party eating salad bar only, was discussed before hand but still charged full price.
We were seated near the door and it was cold Everytime someone came it. Expected various side dishes. Not what I expected for the price. It was nice food,, but to pricy for the quality
Horrible the some of the meats chewy , fatty overall I would not recommend this place
Great food and service. Only small point is the service was a bit chaotic at the beginning with 3 waitresses coming to our table asking what drink I wanted to order (I had already ordered with the 1st one)
One word: Fantastic!
I would highly recommend.
Over the top service!
Picanha is a great Brazilian steakhouse. I liked that is feels family owned, with high quality for and cocktails. Other Brazilian steakhouses seem too corporate.
Definitely go hungry. Salad bar was excellent, meats were awesome.
Food was delicious and the service was excellent
The meat was too salty. Not much else I can say really.
Food was incredible. Rodizio was non stop service like a freight train. Getting coffee and the check at the end was a bit difficult. Party of 10. Overall great experience.
Really loved this restaurant, can't wait to go back
Not worth it. Low budget fogo
Had a great experience. The waiters were very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious, all the meat was tender, and everything was well seasoned. Definitely recommend.
Great service! Decadent food and friendly staff. Had an awesome experience for my birthday lunch.
Great atmosphere, amazing food. The servers were quick in getting around to tables. The buffet options were great.
The food was good, my only issue was there’s wasn’t a big variety of meats, maybe that was due to it being a Sunday night and the place was not busy at all. I did ask one of the servers if they had any of the bacon wrapped steak. He said he’d check and came back 10 minutes later with some. Our reservation was at 8pm, but we called around 530pm just to check if they had any cancellations and was told come in any time. That’s was a nice surprise.
We had a great time celebrating my son's birthday. Service is great.
