Meatlovers dream.

This is the place to go for meat lovers. If you have someone in your group that is a vegetarian there are options there as well. I love that they have latin sides as well as more mainstream sides. Staff is always friendly and professional. I would suggest reservations.

Underwhelmed. I think that's the proper word here. My wife and I visited Brasa for my birthday dinner as a curiosity. I'd been to a Brazilian steakhouse before - in Brazil - and I wanted to see if Brasa came anywhere close. You can probably guess that it didn't. I was - what's that word? - underwhelmed. There's not much... More

We had a wonderful experience at Brasa.Sit on the bar side and take advantage of the salad bar. We sat on the bar side of the restaurant (our favorite). Our bartender had a lovely personality and made great drinks! I am told the bar side of the restaurant has a different (less expensive) menu as well as the salad bar.... More

Wow, Brasa was fantastic, from the time we walked in the door, to the tour of the salad bar, to the gauchos bringing meat to the table. These people understand service and quality.

The atmosphere is wonderful. Sit in the bar and usually listen to live music while waiting for a table. The wait staff in the restaurant is very attentive to the signal whether to come offer food or not.

Brunch is waaaay overpriced for basically a waffle bar with non-fresh fruit toppings, dried out cheese eggs, dried out quiche, etc... I felt like I was eating at a Marriott hotel with people offering you bites from their big shish-ka-bobs. I wouldn't go back their for brunch.

This was the third time I've eaten at Brasa, although the last time was probably 3-4 years ago. This time wasn't as good as I recall the first two times I ate there. We were a party of four and we all agreed that our meal was good, but just barely. The salad bar is very good, they offer some... More

Great atmosphere, live music, walking distance from shopping. Meat is tasty and quality, but not the most elegant or highest end meat selection. This is easily compensated by an awesome tapas/salad hot and cold bar. Wine and beer selection good. Service good, but not fabulous.

This is now one of my all time favorite restaurants! Great concept! Amazing service and amazing food! They are very good with families. It's pricey but worth every cent!!
