By far the worst Brazilian restaurant i had experienced. Most of the meet were overcooked and dry, the selection very limited and you had to wait as long as 10 minutes for the next selection to be brought to the table. We had to ask three time before the right cut of meat was served. The place has no character... More

For being brazilian myself i have experienced many churrascarias, food was ok, service was one of the worst, the drink girl did ok, but meat carvers were actually standing there conversating with about 7-10 intervals for them to come around, for $20 lunch it should be better, should be a $10 lunch and better service!

We came during lunch and we were the only ones there. The service was efficient and enough friendly, but we wondered where everyone was. The server was prompt about bring us the meats and appeared disappointed that we didn't want more. The meats were cooked well done, but we suppose it was because not that many people were there and... More

Very slow service, poor salad bar, and not very tasty food at all!!! I waited over 20 minutes to have a second round of meat!!! There were two waiters and one meat runner!!!!! Should be the other way around, and the poor guy was cooking and serving!!!!

This was the second Churrascaria I have been to and the experience and dining was way better. Service was fantastic...we were celebrating a birthday and they're the guest of honor feel special. The food was good to better; a little to much fat on some of the meats. Come hungry because there is a lot to try. A few of... More

Love the place! The foods were oh so good especially the garlic beef. Mmm.... so tasty! Too bad I have a small stomach. Came here on a Saturday. We were their first customers. They open at 12 and we got here around 12:10, so yeah... we were the first! The cheese bread was awesome too!!! Can't get enough of it.

Everytime we meet in or around the Hollywood Bowl for a concert of filmmusic, the Picanha is a favorite place to go with our group. Helpfull crew, nice entourage and good quality meat. We have been there several times now and never got the idea to look for another place.

We noticed as we were being seated, the surrounding patrons were waiting . Not for the meat to come around, but for the waitress. Shannon something. Well, quickly we were among the rest of the chumps---customers waiting... More

Had all you can eat Brazilian food for lunch. It is a better buy at lunch vs dinner here. For about half the price of dinner, you get all you can eat too. Only difference is they serve a couple more meat options at dinner time that are not offered a lunc. But you still have a good selection of... More
