“Nice Birthday DInner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Nice place- if you like meat! Went here for my husbands birthday the other night, and the food was good- not fantastic - but good, the service very friendly and attentive, the atmosphere pleasant. My husband got a free ice cream sundae for his birthday , which was nice, but the dinner was very expensive. The whole setup with meat off the spit, "gauchos" in uniform, and the salad buffet seemed a bit old fashioned and definitely is not portlandia style hipster restaurant scene, but I found it oddly comforting and fun. You will leave very very full- would NOT recommend for vegetarians, however for people with gluten intolerance it is a good choice.

“Ghetto Version of Fogo de Chao”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

How can you go wrong with a Brazilian steakhouse (as I saw this on the map)? Apparently, you can go wrong. I had a family member with me that had never been to Fogo de Chao (mostly nationwide except NW Coast) or Estancia Churrascaria (based out of Austin, TX) and found this place was decent. However, if you've been to Fogo and then go here, you will know what I mean. Restaurant was quite loud, tables close together, some of the meats were not "fresh", had to ask for the filet mignon bacon wrapped more than 3 times. Waiter was not attentive and seemed to avoid us when we were done with dinner as we waited longer than 10 minutes for him to bring us the check. Sure, it's in downtown Portland, but I'm sure you can find a better restaurant. I will never return here.

“Fun, but overpriced.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

This is a fun and different place to go. They bring meat on big skewers directly to your table and have a good atmosphere. The problem is that the meat is just Grade C meat, nothing to brag about. At $35.00 a meal minimum, it can get pretty spendy. One plus is that it is all you can eat, but who wants to eat large amounts of Grade C meat? Overall, this is a place I might go to every blue moon, (but we all know how often the moon turns blue).

“Ham & Pineapple were Great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

We ate here and it was good. The beef and sausage were OK, but the ham & pineapple were the best. They have a small salad bar but needed more items on it.
