The service here was horrible, the waitress for our table once she brought us our drinks never appeared at the table again, no refills during the hour long dinner or even ask if we needed anything. This was a 200.00 meal for 4 - I would have expected more. Didn’t remove old plates from the table we just kept putting them on top of each other. Salad bar area was small and cramped with not enough actual salad toppings. Meat was good and that service was actually pretty good. We won’t be returning, I’ll take the trip out to Scottsdale

Would prefer more Medium well meats. Had to ask all of the guys and none of them had Medium well. Had to eat meats that were only cooked to Medium. Won't be returning for the price we paid we want our meats cooked longer.

Good value, specially if you have people who like to eat a lot of food. It is a different experience, but gives you the opportunity to try a large variety of food!
It is a little noisy, more of a family atmosphere than date night.
I will go back again.

Terrible wait service. Took about 15 just to be greeted. Wait staff stood near us and debated who should take out table which must have been out of their assigned areas. Finally took our drink order and we never saw him again. We had the wave down other wait staff to get anything else. The restaurant decor is old and tired, booths near bar where we sat and have noticeable tears also seemed to have hardware missing as the bench was more like a teeter. Ceiling AC vents very dirty don’t think they have ever been cleaned maybe that is why it felt like AC was off cool air couldn’t make it way out of the caked on dirt. Floors in the bar area also needed mopping, you can hear anyone coming as sticky as they are. Food was just ok, certainly overrated for the price. Will not be returning.

Our waitress disappeared and after a lengthy wait finally received service from a different waitress. Requested refill of dinner rolls which finally came with dessert. Next to impossible to obtain refill of ice tea beverage. Tried numerous times to obtain a second on the bacon wrapped steak and finally gave up on that. Quality of some meat was questionable having excess fat and not tender. Extremely exaggerated price for ice tea that far exceeds comparable charge from other valley restaurants. Left over decor from the former Elephant Bar does not compare with ambiance experienced in other Brazilian steakhouses. Overall a disappointing experience

We did the salad bar only. They had only one cheese. The stroganoff was cold and the meat tough. The rest of the salad bar was good. No one ever showed up to remove dirty salad plates or refill drinks. Had to go looking to get drink refills. Same to pay the bill.

The only problem was the meats were not seasoned. When you go eat a steak you expect it to taste wonderful. But none of the meats here even put a smile on my face. The desert was good though. Great cheesecake.

We went for our anniversary and overall had a good experience. Pros: Great service, the meat was delicious.
Cons: Ambiance was very dull and it didn’t give us that “special occasion” or even fun time vibe. The salad bar and alcohol bar is below sub par. They have no beer on tap. If they could decorate and add some more variety to the bars, it would greatly improve the experience.

I’ve been on this place twice but this last time was a lot busier. I did not see this time as many meat variety as I saw the other time. I was kind of expecting a little more variety on that regard.

Other than that, it was a very good experience. Good food, good service etc

Had tables set for 2 but made us wait for 10 minutes for a table while they created one. We had reservations. Sat another 10 minutes before we were brought any water. Did not present all the meats advertised for dinner. Waiters were friendly but very slow to bring items when you requested them. For example clean plate, bread etc b

We ate at Serra Gaucha on a Thursday night. It wasn't very crowded but the service was poor. The food was generally good but at $43 per person, it wasn't any bargain. I would not plan to return. There are better Brazilian Steakhouses in the Phoenix area.

Our waiter was totally inattentive. A large table came in next to us, and we couldn’t get his attention for drinks or to pay our bill. The salad bar was pretty wiped out when we got there. The meat was good as usual. We went on Mothers Day. We’ve been here several times in the past and the service was very good. Hoping this experience was the exception.

The Market Bar had so many delicious offerings, it was hard to remember not to load up on sides. Be prepared to spend some money, though. The lunches run ~$30 for all you can eat of a fabulous array of meats (sausages, roast chicken, parmesan encrusted pork, leg of lamb, tri-tip, prime rib, filet mignon, etc). You will be tempted to add on the shrimp (extra charge), but they are scrumptious. It's a little noisy with circulating gauchos and conversations, but not sports bar level.

It was a very quiet atmosphere and for someone who enjoys quiet meals, it was just perfect.
The servers were definitely on top of their game, we would run out of drinks and they were making sure we had a full cup.
The meal was outstanding and plenty of it.

We went here for lunch. The food was just ok. The chicken drumstick was dry and overcooked. The pork was very dry and tough...we didn't even eat it. There was no smoked salmon as shown in the menu. They didn't have soup just like any other Brazilian restaurants. No one told us that desserts are not included for the price...no price in the menu and we had to pay $8 for each item. We paid $150 for 3 and we weren't satisfied.

Showed up a little early for our reservation, so we sat at the bar and had a drink. While there had a wonderful conversation with the bartender and she explained the meats and drinks to us, so we were prepared for dinner. Hostess got us before our reservation and had staff take the rest of our drinks to the table for us. Once at our table, we were promptly great by almost every staff member. The truly put forth an amazing experience for our dinner (it was our anniversary dinner). They even bought us a dessert to help us celebrate.

Not a good experience for my husband and I. Meat was overcooked, dry and salty. They are supposed to come around often with various meats. We waited along time to get served. They were focused on a party of 9. We won’t go back.
