Good stuff – This place is pretty sweet. Me and my friends are not very picky...we just love meat. We can care less about service as long as our plates are full with delicious steaks. I'm not saying that the service is bad though because I haven't had a bad experience yet. If you're tight on money, then try to go during the lunch hours because it is much cheaper than the dinner price.
Amazing – Great food. Have been going for over 3 years. Ask for the server Luis. The best in the house. The buffet is great and tons to choose from. Great for kids or a romantic dinner, or just a good restaurant. Service is great. Meat is hot and again, alot to choose from. Desserts are also good. Not too pricey. Wonderful for meat lovers. Every guest we bring loves it and wants to go again and again!
Nao Come Aqui! (Avoid at all costs!) Muito Pao Duro! (Very Frugal!) – Parking is scarce. The neighborhood is slightly shady. The waiter was below average and pretty much non-existent. Management is awful. When asked about the price of the salad bar, the co-owner and manager told me that the salad would cost as much as the regular buffet item with meat and to "take it or leave"! There were no plates and bowls at the buffet on a couple of occassions throughout the night. With the little food that I did eat, I am not entirely sure if the food is fresh. A good portion of the dishes were not authentic. For the record, french fries and cheap sushi are not Brazillian dishes! The night was a total nightmare. Avoid at all costs.
good service – the place was pretty good. I absolutely love the little bread they had. The meat wasn't too bad either. I've had better meat, but it's still decent here. The service was pretty good. We came a little before closing so they kept bring food to our table. Plus, we sat by the kitchen, so we got the first pick.
Real disappointing, plenty of water, plenty of chicken, bad example for Brazilian. NOT RECOMMENDED! – A Decor setting: step up from a Denny's restaurant, cold and far from romantic. We didn?t wait at all. The water glasses were wet and full of spots? We were not sure if they were clean. The water guy was more like a firefighter; he was around all the time.
They started each table with cheap chicken and not very tasty sausage. If you pay attention you will notice that they kind of pressure you in taking those two by standing next to you until you say YES. But later when they come around with a rib eye or skirt stake it is different behavior, they are very quick and hard to catch. Also with expensive meat they absolutely avoid tables with customers that have just arrived. Rib eye and skirt steak were in our opinion very good but everything else was dry and very hard to eat. We were not yet full, when the supply of meat was cut dry. I didn't like that game cause after all I am paying for buffet. I have requested rib eye and I was ignored. Guy serving the food was not very corteges but rather mean. I think that he was just pretending to not hear. You see, he did hear just fine when he was caring chicken and sausages. We were interrupted numerous times by our waiter asking if everything is OK but when he was needed he just couldn?t be found. IN my opinion good waiter should always have an eye on you so if you need something he can see it. He thought that by asking ?is everything ok? two times, he has fulfilled his obligations.
If you have a choice between going to ?Green Field Churrascaria? (Long Beach) and ?Agora? (Irvine), you should not think twice. Green Field Churrascaria cannot compare to Agora. Green Field Churrascaria was real disappointment for us last night. Also the salad/food bar was made to look larger and richer then it is. It had plenty of staff but nothing really special. For the seafood they only had poorly cooked salmon. It is step up from Home Town Buffet.
Disappointed and abused at Green Field – The best thing I can say about this place is some of the meat was average and edible. Our waiter did a decent job of keeping our glasses full, but the 'gaucho' serving the meat on skewers was quite slow and rude. One visit he missed my request for more meat and didn't seem to hear our requests to return. We advised the regular waiter of this and on the gaucho's next visit he cut me the smallest possible sliver of steak and left. Though my companions did get a normal sized portion. The salad/food bar had fare that I would mostly expect to see at a 7.99 lunch buffet somewhere else. There were a few semi-brazilian dishes but mostly standard fare you could find anywhere. There was one tray of sushi but that had run out at 8pm and we were informed there would be no more that evening. Having been to several other Brazilian style restaurants of this type I had higher expectations for the $27.99 per person price tag. We do not plan to return to this poor representation of a Brazilian steakhouse/bbq and highly recommend trying someplace else.
Great for Groups – Definitely a fun concept, all you can eat buffet where they come around with skewers of meat, everything from skirt steak to quail to lamb. I've been here a total of three times with large groups and the environment allows us to get loud. Waiters and servers were polite to us.
Too Bad Our Server Sucked.... – I rated the service as "not recommended" not because of our waiter (who was EXCELLENT), but because of our meat server. His snooty attitude and demeanor basically ruined an otherwise enjoyable experience for our whole group. If it'd been possible for me to solely tip the waiter I would have given him a huge one, but because of the server it was the standard 20%. The food itself was ok, but you'd be better off taking the drive to Fogo de Chao....
meat lovers heaven/best brazilian bbq – i love this place. great for couples, groups, and family dinners. i've been to all the local brazilian bbq's and have a lot of brazilian friends so i've been to a plenty of brazilian home bbq's as well. this one edges out most of the ones in our area.
