OMG Meat lovers paradise. Every spit that was paraded to our table was cooked perfectly. The gentleman serving was very good (sorry didn't catch name older gentleman) If you leave here hungry its your own fault. Only suggestion wear loose fitting pants or prepare to let your belt out LOL. On top of all the meat this place has some of the best desserts we have ever had

I wanted to try something different with my girlfriend for Easter dinner, so I recommend that we would try a brazzillian steakhouse since we had heard good things but never dined at one. I wasn't sure if she would agree, because she doesn't eat beef. After reviewing the website, she realized that she could dine off of the seafood and salad buffet and be satisfied. So we decided to give the Green Forest a try. Don't let the outside fool you, it looks very inviting inside. We enjoyed the brazzilian music backdrop and the setting was nice and classy. I was also happy that it wasn't the typical overcrowded affair that I generally run into dining on Easter. I rarely do buffets so it's nice to be there with a small crowd so the food is not picked over so much. We were seated in provided information about how the restaurant works. We were given an option to select some appetizers that would be brought to our table and replenished as neccessary and we were off to the seafood and salad bar. The website provides pictures instead of an actual description of the named menu items which can be a bit misleading. The website led us to believe their would be crablegs but none were in site. They also didn't provide labels for much of the buffet which would be helpful. I asked the waitress a few times about the add ons that were on the website that could be added to guests only getting the salad bar, which included other options+ like grilled chicken, swordfish, etc. She was very sweet but she made it seem like those options were not available after several inquiries. She said that the meat selections were primarily beef and to take a look at the salad bar which will have their other offerings. She said if the salad bar didn't suffice that she could check to see if they had any other items. I would have felt a little more comfortable if she knew exactly what was available to us and what are options were. Luckily enough they had sushi, another seafood dish and a few other options that my girlfriend enjoyed while I was having a carnivore's dream. Now to the meat. There are discs that you can turn for when you are ready for meat and when you want a break which was convenient. The meat servers were very friendly. My one complaint would be that they could use a bit of variation on the meats. I wanted to try as much as I could but I was so stuffed by the variations of steak that I didn't make it to try any chicken or turkey. It would be nice to mix it up a bit. They did have a few pork options that I declined. After a while some of the beef started to taste the same with slightly different textures. There were some that were very tasty and flavorful and others a little more bland. Overall, I enjoyed the experience and atmosphere but I wouldn't mind a little more variation if I returned another time. If we go back and some of the information for the service is improved, it would likely garner an even higher rating.
