The food was excellent. They served up so many unique and flavorful meats. Everything from filet mignon to quail. Unfortunately, servers were not very attentive. We went during a slow time - lunchg at 2:30 pm. There were only a total of 6 tables with...More

For $47 per person, we were disappointed. If you go, limit yourself to just the salad bar. The salad bar has salad (duh), but also steamed vegetables, potatoes, chili, stew, soup, beans, rice, cold cuts, cheese and fruit. Decline the extra price to be served...More

We went here for lunch since my husband had worked in his earlier life in Brazil. The salad bar was so expansive and the food so fresh that we were too full to have a full meal afterward. The barbecued meats looked great but we...More

Porto Alegre is a classic Brazilian churrascaria. They offer all of the well prepared classic cuts of beef, black beans, rice, other sides and an excellent selection of salads and vegetables. If I'm hungry enough when I'm in Pasadena, this is a go to spot.

Sorry but cannot think of anything good to say, possibly it's cheap. Food was distinctly poor both in visual experience and taste.

Went here for lunch on 2/13/16 with one of my girls. I have eaten here many times and have always had a good experience, but it was her first time having Brazilian Churrascaria. The food was excellent as always. We were seated right away, which...More

I've been here three times and each time I'm sure I've ruptured my stomach! The food is fantastic; from the cuts of beef to the chicken hearts, it's all very tasty. It is, however, relentless. There's a thing they put on your table that can...More

Very good ambience and service. Five stars for those 2 factors. Food was good but not great. The Buffett was way more pleasant than the meats, which is not a good sign. However, everything was still enjoyable, and this place is very much worth visiting...More
