I ate at the rodizio and was not too happy. It was in the basement and they bring out the rodizio in an exact order starting with chicken and sausage and bringing the prime meat last. I had to ask them to bring the prime meal and it came with some attitude and dry . . .

The prix fixe though is a decent deal. Some reviewers here have complained about the service; the night I went, it was the best part of the meal (pleasant waiter, very attentive and responsive.)

I've eaten here many times since the restaurant opened several years ago and am a satisfied customer. I eat at the lively bar (if I can find a seat!) among Brazilians and those who love the country as well as curious visitors to New York, and the conversation is entertaining and pleasant. There, a reduced price menu is offered with huge portions, often with both rice and beans and french fries. I love the garlicy frango passarihno - pieces of un-floured, deep fried bone-in chicken chunks marinaded in lime and spices - similar to chicharrones with a great parsley/wine sauce. On a couple occasions, though, this dish was a bit too salty for me since I have high blood pressure and I have returned it to the kitchen where it was quickly replaced with a less seasoned version. There is usually live Brazilian music after 8, which adds to the cultural atmosphere. If I really want to chow down, I get a table and order the mariscada - a medly of fish and shellfish in a deliciously seasoned broth. The salmon is also good as well as the chicken breast with vegetables. I'm not a red meat eater, but there is a sizzling steak with garlic that comes out of the kitchen that even smells great to me. For the reason just stated, I have not tried the all-you-can-eat bbq downstairs so I can't comment on that. Service can be a bit inconsistent but overall the wait staff is genuinely helpful and cheery. I recommend this restaurant, particularly.

We Decided on Brazilian food for dinner. The food was not too bad. I had the saut?ed chicken; a buddy had the seared flank steak. Both entrees were sizeable portions and not too bad. We also ordered the Frango a Passarinho (Fried chicken saut?ed with garlic, olive oil, and white wine) as an appetizer. This we could have done without. The pieces were small. The service was not that great. We waited for 10 minutes before the waiter approached our table. When he did, he jumped right into "what do you want to order." There was no drink order ahead, no specials to be told about etc. If this is your preference, then Brazil Grill is the place for you. The prices were a bit spendy. We had the table wine, two entrees and the appetizer. The total with tip was $100. I would eat here again, since my company paid for it, but on my own dime, would shy away.

The meats were all very fatty. The basement where the buffet (which included 6 items) was very dingy. Also, we had to wait on ourselves. The waiter came over once to take our drink order and drop our drinks off and never returned to offer us another drink or to ask us how the food was. We got his attention a few times to ask him for condiments and we ended up having to get up and get them ourselves also we asked for water and ended up going to the bar to get it ourselves. I have been to many Brazilian restaurants around New York and I would highly recommend not wasting your money here.

I have been here w/ mom, sis, friend, and small group all on separate occasions. They all loved it, and clealy i do too since i take them there. Food is always good, if you like latin food, you'll like this- very similar. Drinks are nice and strong. I recommend the bushmills capeta. The caipirihna is a bit small but strong. I have also had dessert- the flan and the rice pudding both very good. Not too sweet but not bland either. I think the prices are well worth it. One warning- there is a fire house right across the street and it is a bit distracting and, needless to say, loud at times with the sirens. but even with the sirens, i keep going.

We ate here on a Sunday evening and sat at the bar. I ordered the shrimp in cocomut and my friend ordered a shrimp and garlic tapas. Both were served promptly and consisted of delicious, generous portions. The bar service was excellent as well and the drinks really tasty. The sugar cane vodka drink with lime was unusual and good, but ...be careful ...it's really potent! We did not venture downstairs, but the upstairs dining room looked intimate and inviting in dark woods and white tablecloths. I would definitely return.
