Rafain Brazilian Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyed our visit very much! The food is great. I wish there wasn't so many table so close together, but they obviously have the business. I would recommend making a reservation. We had one, but in the first 5 minutes after we arrived we saw two couples turned away because they were packed. Get the Groupon if you can and save a few dollars.
I have been loyal to Rafain Brazilian Steak house. However, it was disappointing to see the loyalty was not recognized during my visit on February 14th. I came for dinner to use a special gift card for 25 dollars that was given to me.
Unfortunately, I coukd not use it on Valentine's Day because they had a customer special on this day. I was not an average customer and have been visiting the lunch and dinner tables often.
I should have been allowed to use my gift card regardless of a special for the general public. I spent extra that night because I was led to believe I could use my gift card at anytime and there was no expiration. All I was left with was a large bill and a bad taste in my mouth. I may have to consider other places to dine at because of this kind of disloyalty to dedicated customers.
Siempre me an tratado bien,pero este 14 defebrero mi servicio de mesero fue fatal.nunca me dio mi bebida cuando se la pedí 2 veces y solo fue 2 veces a preguntar si necesitaba algo.era un día especial y salí disgustada por eso.pero bueno siempre me an tratado súper bien.una se perdona
First time at Rafain. I took my wife for our Valentine's dinner and she was impressed. Love the selection of meats for both she and I. Salad bar has some pretty good options but really not overwhelming. I figured it was going to be a lot of options on salad so you would fill up and not eat a lot of meat but really wasn't bad. I wish the tomato soup was warmer from the salad bar. Just ask the waiter what meats they have and they will bring it to your table and cut it off right there. I wish some of the meat was a little less fatty. I loved the pineapple with sprinkled sugar. Really good.
I used a Groupon special: 2 dinners and 2 coffees for $69. After arriving, I promptly notified my waiter of the Groupon. He appeared familiar with it but apparently he was not because he asked if we wanted coffee and was going to charge us for them. Service was awful. We sat there for 30 minutes and was only offered pineapple and 2 other cuts of meat. We usually dine at Texas de Brazil and are accustomed to having different meats consistently offered no longer than 10 minutes after being seated. I believe we were only offered 3 types of beef during dinner (we had to specifically request a 4th because it was not being offered to the rest of the patrons).
Regarding quality, it’s subpar compared to competitors. Considering similar pricing with competitors, bad service, and inferior quality meats, it’s best to go to Texas De Brazil or Fogo. I will not return.
I have been to other Brazilian steakhouses, but the food here was on a different level. All of the meat was prepared perfectly with amazing spices and the salad bar had many different choices. I also loved that dessert was included at the salad bar. We tried the pineapple coconut flan and Passion Fruit Mousse with Dark Chocolate. We will definitely be coming back again and highly recommend.
Im a frequent diner and normally have a great experience at Rafain. This visit was very disappointing. Service was TERRIBLE !!! We had to wait for cheesebread until almost middle of the meal. Bananas were not given until we asked for it. Asked for chimichurri but never came. Took forever for the check to arrive. Just a terrible day for the establishment.
Took my parents to lunch on Sunday. It was very good, as usual, but I wish they had lamb at lunch time too. I don’t recall if that has recently changed, but I definitely would’ve liked to have had it available (as well as the smoked salmon on the salad bar). The passion fruit mousse was amazing as always, and all of the meats were fresh and cooked perfectly.
I dine here often. I have been coming for years with my family. Thursday was the first time I have actually been very disappointed.
I brought my fiancee here for his first time and I was very disappointed in the service. Hardly anyone came by with meat options. I had to keep asking for more otions and for them to come by. We were only offered 4 types of meats and pineapple. Which for me I go for pineapple and spicy picanna! But for it to have been his first time and I wanted him to experience the whole special Brazilian way....it just wasn't there for us this time which made me sad and disappointed.
I have been to Rafain's before and it was wonderful. That was not the experience this time. The service was very slow, the meats came far apart and very few times, and, even though I had a reservation, I had to wait for 30 minutes before my party was seated (which was disappointing as my husband had to rush because he was on his lunch break). I waited at least ten minutes between each visit to the table with a cut of meat and we ended up only being offered 6 or 7 different cuts. Also, my water was empty for at least 2/3 of my visit while a table near mine was being refilled every time their glasses were half full. Overall, this was the most disappointing visit to one of my favorite restaurants.
The food was quite good with the usual selection of freshly roasted meats and outstanding salad bar that you would expect from a Brazilian Churrascaria Steakhouse. Valet parking was available and the ambience was nice. We were celebrating a birthday, which we noted on the online reservation, but no mention was made of it by the staff. Service was quite slow and inattentive. We had to request that dirty dishes were removed. One or two cuts of meat were regularly offered but we had to request the nicer cuts such as filet mignon or lamb. We ordered a bottle of wine from the menu, it was unavailable, so we were offered a considerable upgrade which was very nice and appreciated. Overall, I would return again.
Everything was good except for the hosts. I told her we had a resversation at 6:00pm. She said it will only a couple of minutes. Then there were people after us that came in the restaurant. She sat them before us and one didn’t even have a reservation. She then looked at me and asked what was your name for the reservation? I was highly disappointed that I wasn’t seated right away and that she forgot all about us. We were seated 20 minutes later and the place wasn’t even busy. I’m sure on my ticket it said we were celebrating a reservation. My boyfriend was mad , I was upset. It was the host with long hair and a little short chubby. It seems like she didn’t know what she was doing.
Most of the meats were cooked at medium well to well. Very disappointing. I asked 2x for medium rare and got brought medium well plus.
Also was my daughters birthday and they did nothing. At the end of the deal they gave a $25 gift card—for a 10 yr old. A simple candle on a piece of cake/pie would have been more appropriate.
Absolutely horrible food. Asked the servers to bring out medium done meats and they just laughed and ignored us. Finally at the end they brought out charred overly well done meat at which point I just gave up on trying to get anything there. NEVER GOING BACK.
Service was not very good. We had to ask for clean plates. Then had to ask for drink refills. Then had to ask for meat to be served in our area. Then had to ask twice for our check. All of these were done by flagging down someone other than our waiter. The food and ambiance was great, but we had to work harder than our server. Will not be back.
