What a great restaurant! Everything that we ordered was so incredibly delicious and the portions were very generous.
We can’t say enough about the service, they thought of everything before we even had to ask. Would highly recommend this to anyone and we will be adding this to our list of favourites!

Minas is my favourite Brazilian Steakhouse in Calgary! They serve authentic Brazilian dishes or, if you prefer, the also authentic "rodízio", which has a good selection of meats - I especially like the chicken hearts, rump steak, and parmesan beef. The (gluten-free) cheese bread is also a must! The price is also right for the quality of food, especially when compared to the other options in town, so this is the restaurant I go to for a protein-rich meal time and time again.

Our server (Luisa?) was amazing! Food was great, there were moments with long waits for meat to come around but it was full that night so it’s understandable.

Underground parking is complicated. Call ahead to see how you can get into the parkade. Our server screwed up splitting our bill and so my friends ended up paying for my meal. Luckily they didn't mind. Food was good. The hot food bar has a good selection. Our server was a bit new and had difficulty answering some of our questions; albeit, she was still very nice.

The ambiance at the restaurant is lovely, unless seated by yourself at the very front of the restaurant. The chairs could be a bit more comfortable. The live music on Friday night was exceptional, and it was not so loud that you couldn't have a lovely conversation with your party.

The salad bar was decent, with little buns that tasted like Yorkshire puddings but which were a little different, and the meat was outstanding. All of the cuts I tasted were amazing!

I would definitely recommend for a night out with friends.

Food was very good, guys who brought the meats around were great and came by often, service was ok when the other waitress chipped in to help. Our waitress failed to tell us about the half price wine offer, neglected our empty water glasses and did not give us all the details about offers even after we told her it was our first time there.

Good food, nice decor. Live music was unexpected as it was a Thursday. Music was really great but unfortunately didn’t fit our parties occasion and detracted from our night a bit. Overall good night and great restaurant.

A good experience. The meats were well done, tasty and well presented. The side and salad bar were also nicely done. If Brazilian bbq is what you are after this is a very good place for it.

It was alright, meat was nicely done but the salad bar was quite mediocre. Not much selection, just ok. Service was friendly and acceptable but average. Would I come back again? ...maybe but no rush

Don't go to too many of these Brazilian Steakhouses, but have been to several in the U.S. and this one is definitely below par compared to the ones south of the border. The side courses were comparable (but did run out of the desert), however, when it came to the meat, the preparation and quality of meats were below average, lots of fat and grizzle. I'd been out of country for a month, so I was clamoring for some red meat, and unlike other Brazilian steakhouse were I have left completely satisfied, unfortunately, Minas did not do that. I would not go back.

We selected Minas because if it’s exemplary reviews on other sites. We dined on a Tuesday evening and the place was rather slow for the evening. Service was good. The hot/cold bar was good and provided many options. The issues came with the various meats served. All came out at one temperature(well done). The selection of steaks was limited, with no nicer cuts of steak. They offered chicken wrapped in bacon, hot and mild sausage, and beef ribs. The best part was honestly the grilled pineapple. Was expecting more for the price, and does not hold up to other Brazilian steakhouses we have been too.

Our son suggested this restaurant so it's our first time for ayce meat. Meat quality ok not much beefy flavor with heavy marinating/tenderizing of the meat! If you can partake the small cold buffet maybe worth $50. Otherwise just go the Keg and order a piece of steak which has more meat than what they slice onto your plate and if you ask for more it's like they r doing u a favor. Service is good with frequent refilling of drinks/water.

The variety of meats for the Sunday sitting at 6:00 PM was very low - a lot of italian sausage and chorizo sausage came out. And we had to ask the server to guide the gaucho to our table a bit more often. The hot buffet was very good though. Not sure if it was worth the price but it was acceptable for a social outing.

This is an amazing restaurant with excellent food and exceptional service. The staff is incredibly friendly and have gone out of their way to serve my family and I. We have two children and they loved the experience of coming to Minas. Food quality and variety is unmatched anywhere else! I highly recommend trying out Minas, speaking as a Brazilian myself you will not find more authentic food! Go to Minas, you will not be disappointed :)
