Went here in July based on Tripadvisor reviews and restaurant.com certificate. Staff was friendly - we were greeted at the door, and an employee told us how the ordering process works. For the most part, the food was fresh, but pretty bland, especially the burgers and a chicken breast. A picanha steak was tasty, but a bit fatty. The giraffao,... More

We stopped in for an early casual meal. We were pleasantly surprised to find the food as tasty and fresh as this. The folks there were friendly and explained the dishes. You place your order at the register and then take a seat, displaying your number. When your food is ready a server brings it to you. We had their... More

Delicious food and a great Brazillian menu. The Menu is very visual with flash pictures on the screens and it's in English too! I had the Brazillian Chicken stroganoff with Brown rice and mashed potatoes. It taste homemade and I will defenatly comeback here again.

Having been to Brasil, and havig seen reviews of this chain on other siter, I just had to try it on our recent trip to Orlando. We went in search of it and had a burger lunch and I was very pleased. The decor is fun! Brightly colored and the tiles are interesting. The burger comes with either fries or... More

[A burger is not "native" Brasilian fare.] Brasilian cooks do pride themselves on prepping each dish so perfectly there is no need for even a salt or pepper shaker at the table. My maminha steak was fork tender and tasty and the sides of quinoa salad and blanched veggies were excellent - all well seasoned and good quantity for the... More

Food was bland and portion sizes are inconsistent. One person in our party got one piece of steak that was tough and overdone, the other piece was okay. Meatballs in the spaghetti were burnt.

I went to Giraffas to try it, because I have eaten there in Brazil. Well... It is way overpriced for what you get ( just across the street you can go to a Brazilian style Buffett for $10.00), cashiers don't speak Portuguese ..weird to work on a Brazilian restaurant and not be able to speak the language. At least they... More
