We had eaten at Picanha our last trip out here and it was fantastic. This time, it was decidedly average, as the quality of the meats were not near as good as the previous time. The service started out painfully slow as they only had one gaucho carving, until the manager also began serving people. After the beginning, service was fine. Our waitress, Juliana, was excellent; providing water, ice tea and rolls as needed.
This type of restaurant isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I am a big fan of the carved meats and was disappointed with the quality. They had churassco beef, sirloin, garlic steak and chicken, bbq chicken and ribs, as well as pork and lamb. So the selection was there but the quality just wasn't what I had come to expect. We may give it another try if we're back out this way, but it isn't on our "must do" list anymore. The salad bar is also very small and uninspired.
Note that arrival prior to 6:30 shaves about 20% off the cost, bringing it down from $32 to $26 per person.
