Picanha is a great Brazilian steakhouse. I liked that is feels family owned, with high quality for and cocktails. Other Brazilian steakhouses seem too corporate.
Definitely go hungry. Salad bar was excellent, meats were awesome.
Food was delicious and the service was excellent
The meat was too salty. Not much else I can say really.
Food was incredible. Rodizio was non stop service like a freight train. Getting coffee and the check at the end was a bit difficult. Party of 10. Overall great experience.
Really loved this restaurant, can't wait to go back
Not worth it. Low budget fogo
Had a great experience. The waiters were very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious, all the meat was tender, and everything was well seasoned. Definitely recommend.
Great service! Decadent food and friendly staff. Had an awesome experience for my birthday lunch.
Great atmosphere, amazing food. The servers were quick in getting around to tables. The buffet options were great.
The food was good, my only issue was there’s wasn’t a big variety of meats, maybe that was due to it being a Sunday night and the place was not busy at all. I did ask one of the servers if they had any of the bacon wrapped steak. He said he’d check and came back 10 minutes later with some. Our reservation was at 8pm, but we called around 530pm just to check if they had any cancellations and was told come in any time. That’s was a nice surprise.
We had a great time celebrating my son's birthday. Service is great.
We did have a wait although we made a reservation. However, the wait was worth it.
Take it from a Brazilian, this steak house is the place to go for churrasco. The meat was delicious - juicy, flavorful, tender. The staff was knowledgeable and would slice off the perfect temperature of meat. And in the sea of red meat, don't overlook their garlic chicken.
Great place great food I would recommend this restaurant to other people and family and friends
The food, generally, was good. We were expecting more desserts in the buffet, but.....the delicious grilled pineapple, rubbed with cinnamon and sugar before grilling and serving, made up for that.
Also, I was treated to a very good 'Happy Birthday!' cheesecake treat before leaving!
Please be mindful that without a coupon, Picanha is a bit pricy.
We came here for my husband’s birthday and it was our first time here. Everything about it was amazing, the food, the service, we loved it.
It was great!!!
The service was so bad. They will not go away. They asked me 5 times if I wanted a drink within the first 10 minutes then came back and asked again. It didn’t stop. I do not drink alcohol. Then someone came over and brought me wine I did not want. Truly annoying. Ruined the entire meal.
Amazing! My son is handicapped and the help to locate him in an accesible table was excellent. All employees were really professional and into all details of service. This was our second visit and the first time they had lasagna on the buffet area, this time they did not have it, when I said it was one of the best we have taste they did one just for us.
Excellent food and service. Like other churrasscaria places, expected to feel quite heavy after the meal, but absolutely not the case. Felt wanting more. The picanha and grilled pineapples were outstanding.
As a brazilian myself who likes to find different steakhouses to have dinner, this one was a surprise. I have never heard of this restaurant before, but the food was incredible! The meat was delicious, the sides were great, and the service was perfect!
Highly recommend this place for anyone who wants a restaurant for a casual date night, a business dinner, or a place to have fun with friends.
The salad bar has a lot of variety, but the quality is not even. The meats are good to excellent. We particularly liked the chicken, the pork tenderloin and the filet mignon. The staff was very attentive. However, it's a little pricey.
Service was great! Luncheon menu is very reasonable and food was excellently prepared. Always have a positive experiences at Picanha.
Great food and great service. Nice atmosphere and setting.
Loved every moment! Extremely professional, pleasant and attentive. It was a special occasion for my daughter and she couldn’t stop beaming. We all felt special. Thank you!
Loved it! It is always a great time there!!!
The steaks were out of this world!! Truly amazing. Top five I have ever had. He made the experience more than 5 star.
Best steak ever! Because of the pandemic, I hadn't been to the Picanha for dinner in a long time. I will definitely go back soon.
Everything was lovely. My boyfriend’s steak came out too raw but they threw it back on and it was great.
Our dinner was wonderful! Our server, was attentive but not intrusive. All in all, we enjoyed our meal entirely!
Thank you for making the birthday celebration so special! Excellent customer service and delicious food and drinks.
Such a pretty spot. The servers were all very attentive and knowledgeable. We had a lovely dinner celebration for our anniversary. It was my first time having churasco and it was a lot of fun!
Julio Cesar and crew were amazing! Julio has an amazing knowledge about wines, and he is very friendly! Can’t recommend him enough! His customer service was top notch!
I enjpyed the place immensely. I enjoyed the energy and the atmosphere. The only thing I did not like, but amused by is how the servers were a little upset that I did not continously take as much meat as I could get off the sticks. I had people coming by with the same food 30 seconds apart and could not figure out that my plate was already over run with MEAT! But I used that to have fun!
I will RETURN! But only with meat eaters and loves!
The food wasn’t good. The green salad was wilted. The rolls, the plantains were cold. There was no pineapple. They didn’t have fresh brewed ice tea (just cans of Brisk). My husband got violently ill about two ands half hours steer we ate there. I would not go back.
Amazing and authentic Brazilian food! This is my second time here in two weeks
The food was disgusting the restaurant old and he smelled mildewed. I will never eat here again like ever. No seasoning on food whatsoever ever..
I came here with my partner and it was our first time. We absolutely loved it. The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. The house special meats were amazing. I usually don’t like bacon, but the bacon on their bacon wrapped chicken was very good. If you love meat, you would love this place.
We came to town for parents weekend at Temple University and my son said he misses steak the most so we figured we would try this. It was perfect. The service is amazing. The food was amazing. We sat outside and loved the vibe - lots of really friendly people walking around the neighborhood. The food was better and the price much more reasonable than the food we get at similar restaurants in Boston. We will definitely come back !!
Unaware that it was a Restaurant Week menu with only half of the items from menu available. Truthfully the high end meats like short rib and filet weren’t available. Even the servers were embarrassed. First trip, will not be a second.
