Like the next to last reviewer before me, I was expecting to visit the same extraodinary Brazilian Steakhouse which I have dined and lunched at for at least 5 or 6 years. I have visited many of the same type Rodizio style restaurants all over the US as well as the Caribbean and South America. I had been to none that, in my opinion, compared to Porcao. From ambience to service, food quality and pricing, it always seemed well above others. But obviously, the economy has hurt them. Bad service and less than average food. I guess that is why is no lorger Porcao. The new tenant is taking advantage of old customers and still charging same prices for less than average food. Dinner for two, one glass of wine and one Caipirinha was $140.00. It used to be well worth it. Never again!!

WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS RESTAURANT?!?!?
First of, changed names (not Porcao anymore). It used to be excellent in every way: wonderful, colorful and plentiful salad bar, outstanding caipirinha that they would make at your table, excellent service, superb meats, lascious tropical desserts, etc, etc...
Now, is a sad place (it had 5 tables with people on a Friday night) we were freezing they had the air so low our teeth were clacking, the salad bar, it was...ridiculous! wilted greens and old asparragus, they had some "boiled" white blah calamari, not one tomato in sight. the suchi was... not recommendable. caipirinha was like drinking syrup, you were lucky if you got any cachaa in your glass. Wine?!?! HAHAHA, they brought the wine list, we ask for a bottle...they did not have it, so we picked another one... did not have that one either, so they had to bring a new wine list where they scratched with a pen the wines they did not have with "OUT" over it (which was pretty much every other wine) so, we picked a third one... ok, good we got it...
The meats... sad again, very poor, hardly any meats and very salty (so you could keep ordering wine, HA! if they just had some)... we wanted to order a second bottle of wine of the same wine... hello, they did not have anymore!!!! and you know what was the excuse the waiter gave us this time? there was a big wedding during the day and they drank all the wine they had!!!!
UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
i think i just end with my comment here... there was more, but i guess you'll get the point by now. DON'T GO TO PORCAO, i guess i should say RIO's something...
but the kept the pricing of course!
Sad, very sad and dissapointing.
anyway, we will not be there ever again a shame 'cause the view is gorgeous!!!!

My wife and I love the quality and taste of the food at Porcao, which is why she wanted to go their for Valentines day. We made reservations for 9:00PM, however, due to over booking we were sat at 10:30PM.
When we finally were sat, we were not attended for over 20 minutes, we never met our waiter throughout the entire night.
We were served cuts of meat for a long time until I finally felt the need to walk over to a manager request water and beverages. When I wanted the check I needed to waive over the manager again. Considering how poor our experience was I would have expected at least an apology or a round of drinks, instead I was insulted to see a 20% gratuity included in my $150 check total. This was supposed to be a special night for my wife and I and instead it was the worst experience I have ever had in a restaurant.

I went with my husband on Saturday night and we were expecting so much more for the money expended in this small, not cozy or beautiful restaurant.

The service was bad, rude front desk, the waiters kept ignoring our table until we looked uncomfortable, and when we asked for somebody that new about wine there was nobody that new more than us.

The salad bar is very limited, the meat is OK but not great, not a lot of variety of meat, short wine list, the deserts (specially the flan) bad and expensive. For the money expended in this restaurant is way better to go to Texas de Brazil.

On top of the very high bill we had to pay for valet parking. I won't go back to this place.

Very bad service. My husband and I were invited by our best friends and business partners on my birthday and had a very bad FIRST experience :(. Their service was so bad that there was a point were we all felt so uncomfortable that we looked at each other and stay quite (four people) and serious for them to realized that we had been waiting for someone to come to our table and take care of us. The food was not bad, but you can have better options at Texas de Brazil or if you like something more upscale try Capital Grill (the best!!!!)We are not the kind of people that complaints, we rather not come back to the place but my husband did try to talk to the manager just to let them know (after we paid off course) and he did not care at all just apologized once and stayed quite after that.

I went to Porcao with my husband. 1-A party of 2 is nothing; big $$$ is made by big parties.
The salad bar was very cheap; the meat "outback" quality. We did try to contact the manager who didn't speak portuguese or english. Is Porcao a brazilian restaurant ou spanish? Such a wast of $150. Front desk=horrible. Service=horrible.
I never will go back.
My wedding was at MORTON'S ++++++++++++and they are wonderful.
Ruth Chris is also 10+++++++++++++++++++++++++.
If you want good meat/service do not go to Porcao.

The service at Porcao is top notch. I loved the food. We closed the place down and ate there for almost four hours! The staff never made a fuss about our lengthy stay. In fact, having been raised in Europe, I was shocked that they let us sit at the table and chat for half an hour before eating. I NEVER experienced that anywhere at a U.S. restaurant, from coast to coast. The meats were delicious, and I have eaten at The Forge and Prime 112. Only one thing disappointed me, in the end. When making the reservation, I had asked a lady at the restaurant whether the cork fee was a flat fee, and she had said that it was. I found out after three bottles of wine and the bill that it was not --ouch! Don't let that discourage you from eating at Porcao. Oh, and the scenery, with the sunset over the water and the boats, was gourgeous! They gave us a great table. A truly wonderful time.

The reputation of this Brazilian steakhouse goes without question as the holy place of the all-you-can-eat, wish-you-had-extra-room-in-that-ridiculously-full-stomach-paradise. Porcaos undeniable menu of exceptional meats is offered at a very reasonable price compared to its competitors. The scenic views of Miamis waterways are breathtaking along with the impeccable service that a VIP guest would ask for. As I entered the restaurant, I noticed an elegant crowd packed on hand that evening. Fortunately for my group, a reservation was made, thereby avoiding the absurd amount of people waiting to get inside for a table. The ambiance is very impressive, especially by the windows where the views are located. I recommend bypassing breakfast and lunch that day for an experience of euphoric stomach packing proportions. The phrase eat your heart out is practiced often here. Ignorance of The Porcao Experience is bliss for all newcomers of the restaurant. Gluttony acceptedfor the night. -L.A.

The food was great but not worth the amount. They also add a service charge to the bill which is acceptable but when I received the final bill, I found that they had added a sum of nearly $10 MORE to the final bill which I did not sign for.

The meat is absoulutely scrumptious. If you know you will be there for dinner, I would recommend not eating for the entire day before you get there. Believe me, not only will you be so satisfied with their cuts of meat, but you will wish you had more room in your stomach! I would go there every time!

I love the concept behind the Brazilian BBQ. Unfortunately, Porcao falls far short of the best "Fago de Chao". I took out of town guests and was embarrassed by the food and service. For the price of $50.00 each, that was money poorly spent!

We would have enjoy the good food if it was not for the noise and the TV screens. We didn't expect this bar-type tv screen ambiance in your price range.
We could not have a reasonable conversation with our out of town guests. That was a pity!
The waiting to be seated, even though we had reservations was way too long!

The meal my party had left us feeling as if we could not ever consume food again. It was really very tasty; and filling (to say the least,) and continuous great service. The party had a super fantastic time and enjoyed everything; it was an outstanding experience. Whatever you do, save room for dessert; the best was the flan. This place is a MUST for any and every person I know.

This was an extremely enjoyable dining experience, one which no one should miss !!!!
