Omira Brazilian Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
We ate there and the food was outstanding. The salad bar was loaded with fresh salads and meats. Definitely worth going & they also have a very nice selection of wines, including 2 excellent Italian wines, a Barbaresco & a Barolo at very reasonable prices.
We've been to Omira several times, But this time, we were very disappointed especially by a particular waitress who was unprofessional, rude and even rude to another server. Disappointing because I had bragged about the restaurant to my friends and it did not live up to my words. We waited, and waited, and waited for meat to arrive. One person in our party specifically asked for rare meat -- several times. He had to settle for whatever meat finally arrived at our table. At least 3 times, one of the waitresses/servers leaned on my shoulder with the meat she was holding. Truly a disappointing evening.
We just had the salad bar. I think the food must have been a day old. The salads were wilted. The bruschetta was rock hard. They brought out bread that was rock hard on one side and soggy on the bottom. Totally ruined our evening.
We were a large group and we went for a birthday. The service was great. They made sure the whole group was well taken care of. The owner came by a few times and made sure everyone was enjoying themselves. He even gave samples of wine so we could try before ordering. He sent over a slice of cake and the local singer for the birthday boy. It was a wonderful birthday and evening for the whole family!!
Good for a change
We chose a quiet Thursday evening. Not very busy. Nice salad bar with two soups that were both excellent. We had 12 entries this night. The grape leaf wrapped sausage (Dolmas) was excellent as were one of the steaks and the grilled pineapple. In fact none of the entries was bad, just that some were remarkable.
Good variety and freid
This restaurant provides a good variety of choices and is a great value.
Subpar buffet and service
I have been to many Brazilian steakhouses before, the dining experience was a bit lacking. The buffet did not contain the traditional items, not even the rice was cooked well or farofa was missing. Our table barely received any meat items, only towards the end did all of these other cuts start coming to our table after we were full. We had one server in particular who was not at all appropriate. I most likely would not done or recommend this place again.
Wonderful find worth doing again!
The food was surprisingly good the fine meats that they serve all have their own distinct flavor they have a great salad bar that has a lot more than just salad! They have some very true Brazilian dishes including a great Brazilian beer! I have already recommended it to my friends and will continue to do so and I plan on dining there regularly.
Excellent food, excellent service
Omira is very good. We enjoyed the salad bar and the trips around the meat spectrum. I would, and I have, recommended Omira to many friends. My wife and I were with good friends and the wait staff was helpful without being pushy or interrupting. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
Training of personnel needed
I noticed the hostess did not automatically explain the light on the table. (light on if you want them to keep food coming, light off when you are full). Since a big part of Restaurant Week is to get new people in, this should have been done. As for our experience - nobody came to get a drink order. Eventually I went to my car and brought in a bottle of water.
Fun and really good!
The food and ambiance were both really great. The different cuts of meat and chicken were diverse and always cooked to perfection. We just had lunch, but will definitely come back for dinner. The whole experience was really fun.
my only criticism
It may be just a coincidence, but it seems like different food items brought out at specific times. For example, we've gone close to the end of lunch before and we were served a lot of samples - I'm guessing because you'll start fresh for the dinner rush. But for Valentine's day, the yummy cheese bread bites weren't brought out until we were leaving, which was right around 7 pm. So were they saving the cheese breads for 7 pm and beyond? This is something we look forward to at Omira and were disappointed that it wasn't an option when we were there during our reservation, which was at 5:45 pm.
Excellent Valentines Day Dinner, As Always!
Omira is an amazing place for lunch or dinner! We have been to Omira many times and they never cease to amaze us with their excellent food (best quality and tasting meats you'll find at any restaurant!), courteous and attentive staff, superb beer and wine selection, and often live music! My wife and I recently spent another Valentines Day dinner at Omira (3rd year running) and we were more than pleased with our experience! We are lucky to have such a gem in Santa Fe! Huge thanks to the owners, staff, cooks, and musician for another excellent Valentines dinner!
Unique, fun and poor quality
Not totally unique but for Santa Fe, different. [pun intended] It's an all you can eat establishment which explains the 3 morbidly obese diners the night we were there. Service was quick, friendly (but not overly so), informative (the owner greeted us and explained the concept) and there was a continuous flow of meats. The concept is that many, many, many meats are brought by and you take a sample-size and so on. The meat was varied, looked good, and was properly cooked. But (and here's the problem) while the marinades were very tasty, the meats were not. Of the perhaps 8 different samples, all were either tough, tasteless or chalky. But, clearly the place was popular. SO..... if you're a foodie, give it a pass. But if you like meat and are ok with a casual place where you can eat a lot of food that isn't that bad, go.
This was our first visit to Omira, but won't be the last! The food, live music, staff, and atmosphere were wonderful! It was a great place to have dinner during Valentine's Day weekend. We will definitely recommend it!
Enjoyed dinning there. Great place for dinner. Exquisite drinks. Music is so appealing.

So disappointed with the quality of the beef on skewers. We invited friends to join us and so not so good. The last time had been so fabulous! The staff is so nice but the meat should retain the old good quality.
Very nice service.

It is a great place to eat . The meats coming around are sooo good . Recommend it to everyone . This is one of my favorite places. Also love the variety in the salad bar.
We were traveling and saw this restaurant on Yelp with decent reviews; however, we will never go back to this restaurant. The service was not good...the food was EXTREMELY underwhelming and the price was very high!!! The only good thing about this restaurant was the live music they had was great!!!!
Like nowhere else.
The first thing to remember about Brazilian BBQ is that it is it's own category. So, chances are, you've never experienced anything quite like it. Even large cities may have only one restaurant like this, possibly two, but rarely three. This environment is great for a large group where the wine and conversation will flow while the waitstaff interrupts the group with their current offering. Filet, beef, shrimp, chicken, grilled pineapple, all served in portions that require 2-3 bites to complete. Then, a few minutes later, the next waiter comes with the next entree, and it starts all over again. Omira's salad bar was not the biggest I've seen, but it was more than adequate. The delicious meats were delivered every few minutes unless we needed a break and turned off the light on our table. Considering we were from out-of-town, I was not familiar with Omira, but with the concept, and it was New Year's Eve, I was thrilled with how the meal turned out. My 12 year old was a convert, and even the picky 7 year old enjoyed it. I couldn't have asked for better. Oh, we sat in the back near Brian who sang and played saxophones throughout the meal. The experience was a hame run in my book.
Our place and will continue to be!
Exceptional place, food and staff. We come here for all special occasions, but any occasion is special here. My wife and i have been here about 6 to 7 times already and the quality of everything remains the same......Excellent! We even make reservations for "our table"
Christmas Day Delectable Dinner in Santa Fe
We were from out of town and didn't know what we were going to do for Christmas dinner. We were pleased to find this in the Open Table system and made a reservation. Their dinner was a third of the price of other local restaurants, and we felt like we definitely got what we paid for. Service was excellent. The servers in our section checked on us just enough, and brought us new, fresh choices every so often. They returned with many of our favorites and even had something cooked fresh for us. The pineapple was amazing - no dessert needed with that deliciousness! All in all, a great find and we're happy to have found this quaint place. Oh, and the saxophone player/singer was fantastic!
Christmas Eve Gem
We had our family Christmas eve dinner here. Wonder4foid, service and music. We felt spoiled!! Definitely a neighborhood gem

Food is just okay , salad bar was nice. I had to put chimi-churi on my meats for flavor.
Lots of food but good quality
We enjoyed ourselves. The service was excellent. The salad bar had numerous excellent and ell prepared choices and the meat was wonderful.
Overall we had a great time. Our family went to Omira for Thanksgiving dinner, as we were traveling for the Thanksgiving week. We had a really good time at Omira. The host was great and very knowledgeable about craft beer, which was great for us. The food was tasty, but a little more variety of meats would have been nice. Regardless, we highly recommend Omira.
Omira Must be Portuguese for Just Okay
This restaurant was just okay, nothing special. I found the pricing to be higher than the product dictated. The salad bar was a disappointment for us both. I expected there to be more choices and variety. The price of the meal was not even posted! The menu just said "Prices on Holidays may vary!" We went for Thanksgiving and the price definitely varied. They charged us $35.00 per person, plus drinks to use the salad bar and have them bring meats out to us. We did not even know they were serving turkey until we were almost finished eating. But those chicken hearts kept making the rounds!
Food was delicious and meat was cooked to perfection. Lovely place for date night!

The service, food and experience were all excellent. We eat here as often as we can. Omira is a true Gem in Santa Fe's restaurant world.
Loads of foodie fun
Omira is so good. Way better than the "other" place in Albuquerque. Meats are cooked to your liking every time. Come for the parade of tasty meats and a good salad bar.
The restaurant was beautiful and the staff were awesome. The meat was a little over-seasoned and tough. I would rather pay more and get higher quality meat. The salad bar is great and worth the trip alone. Save room for the seasonal pumpkin flan!
Interesting place to dine. I like the concept of eating in bites. But I felt rushed. Second time dining there where I felt they wanted to close early. Don't like that part. Can't recommend it for leisurely dining.
GREAT food at Omira.
The meats were delicious and the variety very good. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner there and were sorry we could not eat more!
Lots of different items in the salad bar, could easily create an entire meal, but save your appetite for the variety of meat, fruit and bread brought to your table by attentive servers.
One place in Santa Fe that I recommend highly!!!!!
Great meats, great squash soup, not over creamed with cream, great service, all done with a smile and great attention!!!!
Great authentic Brazilian steak house.
Great food, great service! I'd highly recommend this!
Good food, wonderful entertainment.
The food was quite good. Salads fresh and meat was very tender and delicious. The night we were there a man named Brian (?) played jazz saxophone and clarinet and sang popular music, romantic songs from the 40s, and 50s and 60s and even Spanish songs. What a fantastic voice he had and a wonderful musician. We did not know there would be entertainment when we reserved, so this was a great surprise!

We had a wonderful evening and the food was great. The wait staff made sure that we had everything we wanted, and they were very courteous.
I have travelled to Brazil on several occasions and have always looked forward to the "churrascuria" experience. I was pleasantly surprised with Omira in Santa Fe. The offering is of course smaller however what they have is of excellent quality. The staff was friendly and attentive and the price was fair. I will return when I am in Santa Fe again and will recommend it to anyone going.
