I have eaten at several Brazilian type "Steakhouses", this one was not the best. Salad bar was truly uninspired and dull. Flavors of meats were dull and some of the meats were tough. The chicken offerings were dry & somewhat tasteless. Wine by the glass was Overpriced for what you got, you should do better just ordering a bottle. The... More

Amazing salad! Yeah, did not expect that? The salad that comes with the meal (not an additional cost like other places) was great. I have always enjoyed the salad even though this is a great steakhouse. The meat was great. The variety is good with a full range of rare to well done. It is a pleasure and a treat.... More

The meat is excellent but don't overlook the salad bar as well. The desserts are OK but clearly not as good as the meat. Service is excellent. If you are close to the holidays be sure and make reservations.

Good experience. My significant other and I came to this place for dinner and it was a very nice experience with good service and with very friendly wait staff. The seasoning is much different than that of Texas de Brazil which is okay because they're two different restaurants. I just personally like Texas de Brazil better in regard to the... More

It is an awesome place for family dinner, especially for meat lovers. The environment is so sophisticated, waiters were very friendly, and the manager was super nice and humorous. We had a great time.

Service was great and food was also! Lunch special was a plus, I've been to similar places and the cost was double. I will definitely be back.

Horrible service! It all started at the bar while we were waiting for our table. It took the bartender 15 minutes to make 4 drinks. A dirty martini with Kettle One - which she made with House Vodka. A shot of Titos straight up which she poured over a full glass of ice. A Seven & Seven that she made... More

This was our second visit to Rafain. I rarely eat meat, so I make the most of it when I do. I took little from the salad bar, thought it looked fresh and well stocked. I'd heard that the food can be inconsistent, and we experienced it on this visit, even with meat from the same skewer. That's the only... More
