This was our second time. If possible if was even better than the first time. You gotta try the thick chunks of bacon, the filet mignon, the original, just try them all! Everything on the salad bar was fresh and delicious. The desserts are good, if you actually have room for it.

Service was great , the salad bar is good . Now on to the grilled meat ! All you can eat freshly grilled meat over an open pit using natural wooden charcoal. Servers will constantly make rounds with at least 15 or more different freshly grilled meats and cut them right off of the skewer at your table if you... More

The food is still great but not as good as I remembered 13 years ago or so. Went for lunch on a Sunday afternoon with my lovely wife. The only real complaint is one of the servers got testy with my wife Jennifer when she hesitated for 1-2 seconds when he brought the lamb over. She is on a very... More

Love meat? This is the exactly right place to go. I went there during Pittsburgh restaurant week, so I got 35 dollars deal, which is amazing. I have been to Texas de Brazil several times before I went here. I think Texas Brazil's environment is better for a date or special occasion since it's fancier but Green forest is a... More

We have had better. Service is good. Desert is on the expensive side. Not enough side dishes to choose from. Meat over load.

My wife and myself went here last night. First of all as my other reviews go, service is the key here. I have had about all of these fine people. The health dept made them stop cooking the meat at the table which was a wonderful service. It made the place smell of garlic and bbq. It like smelling popcorn... More

Absolutely the best. The salad bar is off the hook, shrimp, oysters, sushi, etc. The antipasto bar wi5h the meats and cheeses is wonderful. And then the skewers of meat just keep coming. $120 for two people including gratuity and no alcohol. Yes that's a lot of money but I'm definitely going back.

We have been patronizing this restaurant for years. It is very authentic, so everything they serve tastes exactly as we remember it from San Paulo and Rio. My favorite dish is “Picanha”, a slice of Top Sirloin Cap steak (pronounced, pee-KAHN-ya). Besides the amazing meats they serve rodizio style (sliced from the skewers directly to your plate), they also have... More
