We spent close to $300 on a bottle of wine and dinner for 4. The salad bar was ok, but seemed to be empty quite often. The meat was good but not all its cracked up to be. I don't think we'll be back

This once popular Brazilian-style restaurant sits dark and empty. On August 23, 2013, and with little fanfare, Boizao closed its doors. The phone at the restaurant has been disconnected and the company's website has been removed from the Internet. The signature open fire pit, for now, has cooked its last meal. A banner that used to advertise specials sits crumpled... More

15 types of meats grilled to perfection. Amazing salad bar, freshest veggies and cheeses. Nice atmosphere, extermely helpful waiters, exceptional value for the money. Only wish there was one closer to the Carolinas.

Another over rated, over priced restaurant. We received a coupon for $20 off per person for Friday or Saturday nights. We arrived early and headed to the bar. I ordered a glass of Sabatini wine $13 a glass! Bartender stated it would be cheaper to buy a bottle of wine that cost $48 and now it would be $24. The... More

Visited the restaurant with some friends on a Saturday night! The good: restaurant is very nice, the meat selection is about as the same as the other restaurants of this kind, the service was good. The not so good: We used a coupon that was available and when we were getting ready to pay, we found out that they added... More

Food is so so, not worth the money despite being "all you can eat". Service was bad and they added 18% to the check anyway. Tried it since we enjoy Texas de Brazil and have never been here. Will not go back.

We have dined here several times, and found it rushed and frantic. Never time to enjoy the food with constant interruptions! This time we went on a Tuesday night and it wasn't as crowded..so we weren't pushed, nice as we had time to enjoy our birthday celebration. Salad bar not marked..so you have to search and it seemed limited with... More

Boizao is indeed more than a steakhouse; it is truly a dining experience like no other…just like the logo says. My wife and I dined here on a Monday evening with reservations for seven o’clock. When we arrived, there were perhaps a dozen or so other patrons. In the interest of full disclosure, we were dining here because my wife,... More

We have been to various Brazilian Steak houses and this is one of the best. A beautiful and romantic atmosphere awaits!
