“Love love love!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

This place has great food. Not a place you go to all the time but would love to. Sevice was great food was the best I have had in Eau Claire. Prices are a little high but you get what you pay for. Will be going there again soon.

“Great Experience...AGAIN!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We took friends out for dinner and they had never been to Picanha. It was a GREAT evening. They loved the food, as did we, and the service was super pleasant. It's one of my favorite places to spend an evening.

“Perfect evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

We were greeted warmly and promptly served by a knowledgeable waitress. The Rodizio experience is a great initiation to the foods of Brazil, starting with a fabulous salad and cheese rolls then potatoes and beans followed by gauchos offering unlimited samples of ham, chicken, beef, sausage, lamb, roasted vegetables and pineapple. I highly recommend the lamb and the pineapple. The wine was perfectly matched. Somehow, we managed to save room for the dessert flan. Service was friendly but unobtrusive. This is a great evening out.

They are gluten-free friendly.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Very good service, actually had to tell the servers to put us on hold as far as bringing the various meats selections to our table. Nothing was lacking in flavor, all aspects of the meal was enjoyed. no more expensive than some other restaurants in Eau Claire.

“Do not believe the tripadvisor ratings.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Brought my family here for lunch. We chose this place based on the tripadvisor reviews and mainly the overall rating.

We arrived just before noon and only one other customer was there. That woman left and we were alone....throughout the lunch period. This should have told us something......

In short, we all had their signature Rodizio plate where you pick 4 items (sirloin, tenderloin, bacon wrapped chicken, sausage, grilled vegetables or grilled pineapple) and includes mashed potatoes, black beans, house salad and Brazilian cheese bread.

The good news: my kids liked their hot dog and cheese pizza. We all liked the grilled pineapple.

The bad: Started with the cheese bread....OK but there was an oddly strong black peppery flavor going on that kind of put us off. The salad was maybe a little below average due to the dressing (and we like most salads). Then the entree.

Potato was basically high school cafeteria. Black beans slightly below average. Beef was unfortunately served well done (we should have known when they didn't ask how we wanted them done) and not surprisingly were dry. Too bad as the flavor of the sirloin was good were it not for the degree of heating. The tenderloin was so done as to being pretty much inedible which is also too bad considering the cost of that cut of meat.

Sausage was just OK and so was the chicken. Bacon wrap a little stringy as they under-cooked it slightly (but chicken was perfectly cooked).

Prices were very reasonable but this is a long way from a real Brazilian steakhouse. We'll probably continue to dine elsewhere.

I would have given it 3 stars as I wouldn't call it poor but these artificially high tripadvisor ratings need to come down as this is a long way from Eau Claire's best.
