Nestled inside the Hilton Niagara Falls/Fallsview Hotel and Suites, Brasa showcases the flavours and cultural flair of Brazil. Following a "centuries-old" tradition of cooking on an open fire, diners can experience endless cuts of succulent beef, pork, lamb, and chicken carved tableside in the style of authentic Brazilian gauchos. A two-sided disk is used by diners to signal when they’re ready for these sizzling skewers: green means "More, please!" and red means "I've had enough, for now." Eat as much as you want and at your own pace.

The gourmet buffet features over 70 hot and cold items to accompany your meal including Brazilian-style potato, corn bread and polenta. Brasa is the best place to experience a taste of South America.

Brasa is also home to a sophisticated wine collection with a fully enclosed, two–storey wine room containing an extensive selection of world-renowned wines.
Prices: Sunday-Thursday CA $49.95 Friday-Saturday CA $59.95

Been to Brasa several times over the past few years and have never been so disappointed. The meat was under seasoned and over cooked. The seafood medley at the buffet was over cooked and mushy.
We left unsatisfied and hungry

We came to celebrate my husbands birthday, which I put in the remarks when reserving as I was prompted. I would assume that 2 weeks would be enough time to get a pretty decent table. We were seated at the end of the buffet station where the noise was loud. We could barely hear each other. There was absolutely no privacy. I did ask upon seating to please change table, the lady shrugged and said she would check. Never came back. Not very professional. I will return, however not for a special occasion. Ruined the ambiance of the evening.

Why would you switch to electric grills? Whoever made that decision should be fired. Is that how they do it in Brazil,pretty sure not! Stop claiming to be a brazilian steakhouse if your gonna cook your tough and unflavorful meat in electric oven. Total disappointment with the quality of food especially for the price, the the salad bar was mediocre too. I'll be going back to Copa instead.

It was our 28th wedding anniversary and I had mentioned this on my reservation. Most restaurants acknowledge such events. I was disappointed that this special evening was not addressed by Brasa.

This is something that they need to work on, Birthdays and Anniversary’s should be recognized.

The pork and chicken were nice.

We had been to Brasa a few years ago and were impressed with the food. We thought that the price was high, but decided to go again as a treat. The buffet table was decent as was the lamb, chicken and pork. However, the beef was far too sinewy and tough. I ended up spitting out about a quarter of it. The buns and bread were a joke. Worse than any cheap supermarket would offer. To top it off, they add approximately 8% local fee that they would not remove. I must mention that they had a nice 2 piece band playing that we enjoyed.

The worst meat I’ve ever eaten. It was bland, unseasoned and over cooked. It also smelled incredibly unappetizing - similar to meat that has been pressure cooked without any sort of seasoning or preparation. Meaty is the only way I can think to describe it.

After we complained, we were met with a very canned response and it was evident that they field this exact complaint often.

A supervisor then came to our table with a spit of meat (which was a tad peculiar in itself) and tried to justify why the meat may have been disappointing, citing that sometimes the Gauchos (the meat men) weren’t necessarily carving from the proper spot on the spit. It was a pretty weak excuse. The bill included a pathetic 20% discount which was actually quite insulting considering it was our 5th wedding anniversary and our first night away from our kids together ever (both of which we conveyed to the manager).

The highlight of the entire evening was the roasted pineapple.

At $59.95 a plate, don’t waste your money. For that price, you can have a fabulous dinner with multiple courses at any number of other upscale dinner restaurants.

Servers came around but kept bypassing our table. We asked a hostess what needs to happen to have staff come to table and serve meat. The hostess indicated she would take care of it and she did! But that we had to ask given we had the circle turned to the green side is concerning.

We visited this restaurant about 9 years ago and it was outstanding. However, this time the meats all tasted the same and were dry. The buffet was good but scaled back from what it was. We will not be visiting it again.

Our experience was wonderful. The gentleman whom went around the tables with the meat were amazing and kind and responsive to our requests.

The server we had (vince) unfortunately wasn't attentive to us. He came to us 1 time through out our dining stay, I requested for a refill he took the glass and didnt come back until the bill was presented. I kept watching him and he seemed to be in a hurry by clearing the tables and removing table cloths from the tables. He did check on his other tables more often.

This bothered me a lot. The other servers for other tables seemed more attentive to their guests.

Other than that everything was great.

Anyone who cares about the flavors of their food should not go to "Brazilaian SH" model restaurants. This is not a criticism of Braza in particular. I think the way these places make their meat makes it harder for the cuts to have any flavors except just saltiness. The service was excellent, but the food was awful.

Terribly rude front desk staff
Inattentive wait staff
My "vegetarian" pasta never came - spent $160 for 1 meat eater and for me to eat salads
No compensation from management
Meat blue inside
Raw chicken
SUPER fatty cuts of meat...

Everything was amazing but the fact that they charge a fee that they don’t tell you about is very misleading. They charge a tourist fee of 7 percent which came to be about 22 dollars on our meal. We aren’t tourists we are from Toronto and the fact they charged us this we most likely won’t go back.

The service was great, waitress was excellent. However two issues of concern. The meat was over cooked and some was even too dry. The second issue was the charge of $26.11 Local fee. I'm from Mississauga so local to Ontario, furthermore it is not mandatory for me to pay this fee on a $330.55 bill which came out to $403.02 with local fee and HST. On top of this, the Local fee was taxed. It is in violation to tax on top of a tax. I talked to the manager and he refused to take off the Local fee charge. I certainly will never again go to Brasa and I will inform everyone about this fee which is not posted nor shown anywhere at this restaurant. I have filed a complain with consumer relation. I had given the manager a chance to even take off the tax on the Local fee even without removing the local fee. I own a business and definitely know the requirements of charges and taxes.

We normally go to Brazos at least eight times a year. We took friends with us this time that had never been there. We were sat in a back room which had no air conditioning. It was terrible. Some of our guests left after 1/2 hour. Hardly worth the value. They discounted our dinner 10%. We were very disappointed. Guess shouldn’t have to leave after half an hour because it is so hot.

Staff is just amazing and meats are well worth it! We have been there at least 10 times in last couple of years and have never been disappointed. Only one thing is, that now even though we are from Kitchener ON, we were not considered local anymore and had to pay the tourist tax for dining there. This is the first time we had to do this. We will be looking forward to our next visit to Brasa though.

Lots if choices on salad bar but some items looked like they had been around awhile, cauliflower had brown spots, sliced tomatoes were limp and see through. Parmesan pork was over cooked and dry, bacon wrapped chicken was tasty as was lamb. Beef rump and round were ok but I do not use added salt on my foods so found everything excessively salty. My husband enjoyed his meal but I felt I did not get my money’s worth.
