Excellent service, friendly staff, good variety and unique experience with hot ready to serve food
Delicious food. Stupendous service. Nice and clean.
We went to celebrate a friend’s birthday and from the door, we were immediately greeted and seated! Very attentive service and the salad bar and cuts of meat were excellent! We enjoyed the flan and chocolate truffles for dessert! I loved the casual atmosphere and would recommend Picanha to my family and friends!
The food and drinks are great, the meat comes out at a good pace and not overwhelming. The service is very friendly.
Great restaurant! Perfect place for a large group, there is something for everyone on the buffet & the selection of meats was amazing! Definitely going back when I am in Philly.
Very disappointed. Hot items on the buffet were cold- mashed potatoes, pasta, rice etc. The meat was not very tasty. People were nice but lacks in ambiance (felt like a cafeteria) and the food quality subpar.
A wonderful meal and great service!!!! Thank you!
I enjoyed this more than most other Brazilian restaurants I’ve tried! The meat kept on coming, there was no long lag in between and they didn’t try to serve you a ton of chicken and sausage in between steak and lamb to fill you up. There was a ton of food at the buffet to start which I didn’t have much of, because I wanted the good stuff! I’d go back for sure!
Steak was salty and not tasty. Salad was bland.
Mostly cooked medium well.
Not a good value for a typical family. For instance let's say a father, mother, 14 yr old girl, 16 yr old boy and grandparents go here for dinner. The only person eating $46 of meat is most likely the father and maybe the 16 yr old boy. The rest of the party is barely breaking $30. Also the meat is good but not tender top quality, so you want to eat quantity.
Great quality food (meat skewers galore) and service - highly recommended!
Great food, service and ambience. Brazilian food with good Brazilian spice.
We had a date night, when we got to the restaurant, we were seated right away. Everyone was friendly, they explained how the restaurant was- salad bar, then the steak/meat came around. We had to continually ask for the meat, some was really rare. The staff was super friendly and we enjoyed our visit. Just wasn’t expecting to grab our own plates each time we got more meat. Not to compare to other “Brazilian steak houses”, but that’s what we based our visit on, big difference.
I was expecting much more because of the name, I’m a fan of “churrascos” but this one was a little below my bar.
The people friendly but honestly I was expecting much more.
The service is very attentive and selection of meats is awesome!
I am so glad the salad bar area is open and sanitation options are provided for guests.
Food and service were great. Nice place for date night.
The food was delicious and very tasty. My don julio margarita was good as well. Very clean overall experience.
Everyone who works there is amazingly pleasant. Meats were very tasty
Wonderful experience for Mom's birthday party. Great service and very accommodating!!
Overall we had a good experience. I was a little off put as I asked about the wine bottles on the table and the woman taking our drink order had no idea the price/if it was on special and basically walked away from me.
The meats were great, the rotation of meats felt a little rushed but that was ok. We had a lot of men in our group and I know they would have liked a couple more slices but we sorta felt like they wanted us to be done.
The experience was good and we had a secluded table, but would probably try somewhere else next time.
Always love it here, no matter what time of the day it is.
The best food and service I’ve ever had in my life.
Went in on a Tuesday, the meat was either too well done or sometimes a little raw. You're paying what would be the equivalent of going to Fogo de chão and taking a risk of not getting that kind of quality of meat. You're better off just going to Fogo.
It was fantastic! Food was fresh! Salad bar Amazing! Meats were to die for! I love it here!! I travel 2 hrs just to come eat here! Love it
Great food and service. The only complaint was that they didn't ask us how we wanted our meat, like at other Brazilian steakhouses. Other than that, it was awesome. The service was excellent and the food was delicious.
Great. Like the fact that they are not crowded
This was our first time going to a place like this, they were so nice and friendly. The meat was all outstanding as well as the salad bar. We got there early and were the only customers, 10 out of 10 recommend!
I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt because restaurants are struggling with reopening and staffing, so 4 stars instead of 2 or 3.
I’ve been to various Brazilian steakhouses, but never experienced one that didn’t offer a variety of doneness with each meat. I don’t like well-done beef, but even when offered “medium”, there was no pink to the meat. Unfortunately, this can make even the best cuts into tough and tasteless bites.
Service was very good - pleasant and efficient. Selection of drinks was excellent. Just not the meat in the night we went.
It was awesome! Would definitely return!
Nice place, love the decor. Staff was great and food was wonderful. I will return.
We always eat here anytime we come to Philadelphia. The food is delicious and the staff are fantastic!!!!
Such a good place! Really good food, amazing staff!
Went for my boyfriends birthday and it was a nice restaurant choice. The ambiance and Service were excellent. Waiters were very attentive
The food was great
The service was acceptable but food was just medicore for most if mot all cuts.
Good food! Go hungry
Loved the Mac and cheese
