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

It is getting increasingly competitive in the Brazilian steakhouse category. That's why we're so happy we found one we love...and we keep going back. The experience starts with the valet parker, who is kind and great as his job, and always recognizes us. If you leave this restaurant hungry, you have done something wrong. There is an expansive salad bar... More

I love Brazilian steakhouses and have been to a few...I think what puts this one over the top is the variety on the salad bar. I added a bit of sushi to my meal!!! The staff is very friendly and never lets your glass of whatever get below a half. Great selection of meats and deserts! Gotta try the pineapple... More

This establishment should not be showing blatant discrimination toward the LBGT community. I witnessed 2 men enter for lunch this week, asking to do the couples lunch 2/$40 and they were asked to "prove" that they were a couple. I was shocked and mortified that someone working there would say that!!! They were then denied the special and did end... More

Went today to lunch and it seems that they were not running their meat services as expected or as usual. We turned the disks to the green side and waited for about 10 minutes, the pineapple skewers came twice but no meat, we asked for the beef cut, the sausage skewer arrived, we talked to the manager, he pointed to...

I am a big fan of Brazilian steakhouse dining, so naturally I wanted to give Rafain a try. For me... well, I completely loved it. While the salad bar was a little more limited than I expected, based on extensive visits to other Brazilian steakhouses, the part that really mattered was awesome - the meat. I tend to gravitate toward... More

The reviews for this restaurant were mostly very good and indicated it was cheaper than Fogo, so we decided to give it a try. It was a great choice. The salad bar had a nice selection and was very fresh. I could have happily eaten it and considered it a good meal. But we came for amazing meats so I... More

Ate here as part of a large group and had a really nice time. The meat was exceptional, but I did feel that they stopped serving a little too early; some people clearly had not finished. Also the salad was a little disappointing. Dessert was good though, and the wine list was extensive. Our main server was excellent, but the... More
