I will never go to an Outback or most any other steak house restaurant again. Service was awesome, food was outstanding and I enjoyed myself. The décor could use a bit of love, generic stock photo artwork on the walls.

For carnivores. Friendly staff, quick service, high energy Brazil-style churrasqueria. Salad buffet had a line most of the evening. Then the meats come to your table fast. If you want something that hasn't appeared just ask the waiter. They are helpful and responsive.

Staff was friendly and lively. Being our first time there our server explained the process very well. Do remember to make a reservation as they fill up fast! Worth the price - try everything!! Our one complaint was the restroom situation....only a single person restroom for each sex seems unexceptable for a restaurant of this size... expansion needed.

First thing in hear when i get there the host told me "you should booked for 3 not for 2!". When i did my reservation i didn't count my baby (2 months old) cause it won't have any food. So my wife and I thought it was very rude.
Also almost all of the meet was over done and lacking of salt. No mention there was nos sauces to accompany it.
So, not a good experience. Not coming back.

This is probably my 5th time eating at the Brazil Grill. I live 85 miles south of Portland and have made the trip to just to eat there before. This last time a group of friends and I went up to the NW Sportsman's show and we knew where we had to eat while in the Portland area. It's always a great experience.

During my recent visit to Brazil Grill, I was greeted at the door with a friendly smile, that always helps start the evening. Yea! The salad bar is always fresh and it offers items you won't see at every restaurant. Stroganoff?? Its awesome, so good. And chicken hearts are on the menu, where else can you find those? Cool. I really enjoyed the service, prompt but not over done. Genuine people, not phony.
Great job Brazil Grill, I'll be back.

Came for my husbands birthday. I loved that they called to confirm our reservations and we're very friendly and attentive. This is a place where you don't have to worry if you be missed with the food coming around, they make sure everyone is attended to.
We will be going back.

They were really accommodating for my husband's birthday, as I had scheduled it the day before. We were worried that the protests would be happening again; and did not want to get stuck in Portland. We always come here :), he loves it and we do too. You will leave super full. It's very yummy.

I made a reservation for my anniversary as soon as I walked in I was greeted with a smile . There's so much food variety. I started out with the salad bar there was so many options salad to fries . The glazed pineapple was also one of my favorites. I recommend this restaurant for any occasion! I will be returning soon!
Service is very friendly. I expected so ...
Service is very friendly. I expected so much more though, in experience and food. Every 15 minutes you may get a thin slice of meat or a teaspoon size piece of steak wrapped in under cooked bacon (think beef nugget). Shrimp came around once in 2 hours and you needed to peel the 2 you are given. There was nothing special about this place. Certainly no entertainment value in waiting to be fed a scrap here or there. Salad bar was not of quality. I felt like I could of been in a cheap type buffet place but waiting for meat to be presented and certainly there is no Brazilian flare to the meat presentation. And it is expensive. The good thing is you won't consume many calories and you will have plenty of time to converse with your party which was the best part of the night. Better to select one of the quality steak houses. You will pay less and have a good meal. Not so much here.

Our dinner was perfect! Our server was very attentive and the meat was fresh and very flavourful. The salad bar has plenty of healthly and delicious options. Overall everything was great, 10/10 we will definitely be returning!

Went to the Brazil Grill to celebrate a friends birthday and we had a wonderful time. This restaurant is my husbands favorite and he was just a bit jealous that it was girls only event. Thank you for the lovely evening.

Cozy dining room, extremely attentive and friendly staff. Very happy with the dining experience, especially that the kitchen carved portions of each steak and cooked them well done for us.

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.

Very friendly wait staff and management. It's a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. The food is fresh, hot and quickly to the table. This was our first visit. We plan to return in the future!

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.
