Brazil Grill Ratings and Reviews

I really enjoyed my meal. My wife and I had a lot of fun eating hear. My only complaint is that I don't know if i will go back anytime soon because of the price. ($40 each) It really felt like it should be 10-15$ cheaper.
Sorry to have to say this, but the past ...
Sorry to have to say this, but the past two visits we have made here there seems to be a new constant thing that is not nearly as good as it used to be. The further you sit from the kitchen the less chance you have of getting the variety to your table especially near the windows in the front of the restaurant. In the past the service and waiters came around much more often then they do now. Even if you ask for something that should have already been around it takes quite a while for it to arrive if it does. We had to ask for the "bacon wrapped chicken breast", "the pineapple", "the chicken hearts/gizzards". Also the meat seems to be much "rarer" mostly "blood rare". The meatballs in the sauce in the soup warmer were barely warm even a few of the meats, specifically the bacon wrapped filet mingon. Before you think it was just a busy time, both of these visits were between 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. so the restaurant was more empty than full. I love the restaurant, but might opt for another restaurant in the future as these problems seem to be more constant now. I had hoped the first time this happened it was a fluke, but after two visits in a row like this...seems to be becoming the norm.

very friendly server, Tara who was cheerful, upbeat, friendly, helpful. We felt great to ask for her suggestion. She even threw a free desert for our anniversary. The meat was fresh and cooked well. The salad bar has a variety and I love the fresh, warm pineapple. As I usually don't eat too much meat and the cost is quite expensive, so I chose the salad bar which was good enough for me. I enjoyed watching my husband eating the different meat selections esp. the chicken hearts. Definitely, we will go back again.

I was visiting from Brazil and wanted to take my host family to an authentic Brazilian dinner. I was happy to see that it was pretty authentic. The salads were more American, but the meats and bean and rice were just like back home. It was a fun evening with lots of good food. They live in the Portland area and said they would definitely go back.

I really enjoyed the experience of having many different meat dishes brought to the table. We had chicken hearts, shrimp, several different types of beef. There was even a round of baked cinnamon pineapple. For two of us the total including tip was around $150. That included unlimited meats and salad bar. Three alcoholic drinks, a coffee and a slice of chocolate cake. Not a cheap place to eat but for a special occasion, totally worth it.

Going to a Brazilian steakhouse is always a fun option when going out for dinner. All the grill options were well made and delicious. The salad bar isn't as extensive as other Brazilian steakhouses I've visited, but it was fine.
Its pretty tight quarters in there, which wouldn't bother me, but we were chastised for bringing our infant in a car seat and not notating him as a 5th person on our dinner reservation (even though I put in the online reservation notes that I was bringing him). We were moved to a different table other than the table they'd reserved in order to accomodate him, but weren't offered a high chair, so we just placed him in a corner on the floor. Once seated, our service was very good, but I wasn't impressed with how irritated the host was over the baby and reservation confusion. I don't know if I would go back because of that.

It was my brothers birthday and first time going to the grill, and he absolutely loved it!!! The service catered to us like we were the only family dinning, they were absolutely wonderful! The food was so good! Any occasion this is the place to go!!! I love this place.

Great service and food. I'll definitely go back again. All of the meats were well prepared and cooked to the temperature that I like. The salad bar looked a little haphazard (like they were just pulled out of the fridge and put back out) but the items were all tasty.

We enjoyed the atmosphere of Brazil Grill. We've been to several Brazilian Steak Houses and they're usually quiet and fancy. I felt like I could talk and laugh with my husband. It wasn't loud but welcoming. We even were talking about it during dinner. It made us feel comfortable.

This is an OK locally family owned restaurant. The food is not bad, but the selection and cold items are not nearly as expansive as the larger national players in the Brazialian Steakhouse space, although the price is the same.
If you expect the offering of the large national chains you will be disappointed.

Love the Brazil Grill!!!! We did a team dinner for work there, and everyone had a great time and the food was excellent!!! The servers were attentive and a lot of fun to interact with.

Booked a table that wasn't ready despite the restaurant not being full. Charged for a full cold buffet even though we asked for a single plate of food since my daughter wasn't feeling well. Very expensive meal while the selection of sides and meats was average compared other similar restaurants I have been to in the past. Definitely wont be going back

I was in on a Saturday and sitting next to a very large party of 18. They were always served first and then food was gone. Then when they would come back out they would go around big party, and then go off in opposite direction of my party of 2. I kept asking for special request and then they would come out and back to big party or off in other direction! I asked 5 people and i never got what i wanted. I had my puck on green and would be over looked. For the price i would have thought i would get better service. One glass of water...awsome. i was actually asked for specific, but that is as far as wnt..asking.

Food was good; however, the service was not what I expected for the price. Some of the gauchos were pleasant but there were a few that would barely acknowledge our table and one in particular who was fairly rude. The waitress was really nice but seemed overwhelmed due to a busy night. Maybe this was a one off experience but it made my brother's birthday less special.
