“Great Food, Service, Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We found Brazil Grill on Restaurant.com via my United Airlines Mileage Plus account. We were looking for kid friendly and a chance to use some earned miles. We hit the jackpot.

We were greeted at the door by Bruno who is an employee of Brazil Grill. He is absolutely charming. We were seated in the downstairs area....which is very child friendly. The employees were attentive and pleasant.

We decided on the "All You Can Eat" menu. This was a great choice. There was salad, sauteed mushrooms, seafood paella, garlic chicken dish, meatballs, rice, etc......a good variety.

We shared a pitcher of Sangria which was delicious.

Carlos came around with different kinds of meat on skewers (Rodizio Style). The meats were delicious: sausage, bacon wrapped turkey, top sirloin, regular sirloin, pork tenderloin, etc. If you have not had Rodizio, they give you a piece of wood with green on one side and red on the other. You keep the green side up to let them know that you want them to keep bringing meat. You put the red side up to let them know you are full.

I had the flan for dessert. It was probably the best I have every tasted....very creamy. My daughter had carrot cake which was very good too. My husband had cheesecake which he raved about.

On our way out, we were again greeted by Bruno who wanted to know how we liked the restaurant.

This restaurant has great food, great service and is very child friendly....yet....there were intimate areas in the restaurant for couples without children to enjoy their meal quietly. It offers the best of both worlds.

We will definitely be going back to Brazil Grill.

“Nice food and service shame about the decor.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Visited this restaurant for the all you can eat buffet and were not disappointed by the food. The food was tasty and plentiful, and the server brings the meat to your table and carves as much as you like which was a really nice thing. We were given the option of 10 meats!

The waiters were really friendly and the service was prompt.

We ate in the basement, so can not comment on the rest of the restaurant, but the basement is definitely in need of refurbishment.

“Delightful discovery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

We tried to get into a better known restaurant before a Broadway show but it was too crowded.
We had noticed the Brazil Grill before on several occasions and thought we would take a chance.
It was very good with excellent attention . The bartender made wonderful mojitos and the food was delicious. We told them we had a show to see and they accommodated us In a timely fashion. We will return again. Loved being in a place that was not so crowded and loud.

“Great food and great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Excellent Brazilian dishes at prices more moderate than many other Brazilian restaurants in New York. The location in the theatre district makes it a convenient stop to get a meal either before or after a show or concert.

“Mediocre Brazilian Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

not the best food and its overpriced. It is not the cleanest place either, but the people are nice at least.
