Food was great! Food offered regularly! Sides were good. A little slow but no problem at all! Would definitely return! If you are big meat fan you’ll love it here! Haven’t got a bad word to say about the restaurant

The meal was fantastic, the food was all brilliant quality and so tasty! The only thing I would say is that we waited before we were seated even though I had booked and the waited about 20-30 minutes before we even got our drinks even though it was fairly quiet, and service was quite slow all round. However if you have nowhere to be or a time rush it is brilliant. So unique and always great - can't critique the food or drink and the staff were all nice as well.

Can be hit and miss at time but this time was a massive hit. They’ve sorted the side orders out so your not full of meat before your sides come out. Very attentive staff and value for money in the heart of the west end

Preto is similar to other Brazilian restaurants I have visited. It has a great location, being on Shaftesbury Avenue and so close to the theatres. Because of the way the restaurant operates, it’s also very time-efficient.

Tried booking for 5 people received confirmation from OpenTable for 2 people. Could not amend or confirm as I do not have the OpenTable App. When I got there the initial approach wasn't very friendly.

We’ve been to Preto in WestEnd many times but the experienced we had yesterday was not fulfilling ,its not good at all compared to the last time and for the price we pay for each one not worth it .
Grilled chicken you can eat everywhere for a very cheap price but they keep serving it instead of the beef

Food - Meat was hard and dry - not FRESH we think it was from morning then carried over to evening
We come to Preto to enjoy the grill steak but we’re very disappointed they only came to our table thrice
Rice and sauce that we ordered came to our table when everyone has already finished .
Waiting time was just too long not a nice experienced indeed

Service was near non-existent on the part of the regular servers. They would forget to bring items ordered and hardly ever came around to check up on customers. The food carvers were at the table more often but tended to bring lower-quality meats (sausage and chicken) more than the better beef cuts. The meat was also very chewy most of the time, instead of tender (which is what you would expect at a Brazilian steakhouse). When it comes to dessert - this is not the place. The cheesecake was just cheesecake flavoured cool whip on a crust. There was no actual cheesecake to the dessert.

Food was good. Waiting staff pleasant. Shame it took 40 mins to get our side dishes despite asking several times although the meat kept coming. Maybe the kitchen was on a break…

The waiter was rude and didn’t pay attention. Vegetarian option is extremely poor as well as ordered vegetable lasagne was over cooked with brown corners. Nobody paid attention to detail the waiter was a young girl extremely rude she just dropped mayo on the table when asked. Brought wrong orders all the time. The green red cards were not issued and it was a mess.

Service was very slow had to ask for a glass of water 3 times.

You can't pick what you want for the sides they just bring you what they want.

Some of the meat was very chewy and they didn't bring round the full selection so didn't get to try everything.

Over all it was OK but nothing special

OK first visit and the three of us had a wonderful time. Don't order too many sides as the meat is amazing and so very plentiful. You get 90 minutes and that is plenty of time. The meat servers who come to your table are great and the overall service is amazing. Highly recommend this place but don't have breakfast or lunch before you arrive. Enjoy and we will be back 100% thank guys

Meats and sides were low quality, drinks were mostly ice. Staff was nice, but were too busy with other tables to offer good service, and took very long to bring orders and refills.

They take out the buffet and that was the worst thing that they have done.
Sides were very small and ask for morewas difficult because not enought people. The restaurant was full, a lot of noise and the tables very close to each other.
I did not like it this new changes despite that the food was still good, but I wont come back again.
