Minas Brazilian Steakhouse - Calgary
It was a fabulous experience with wonderful caring staff who catered to individual needs. Great variety of meats and side dishes with yummy desserts to please every taste.
This was the first time at Minas and we enjoyed our experience. Very friendly staff, fast service and great food. Will be returning!
Over the top good. We have never done this type dining before. Our definition of good food has changed.
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.
It is a good experience for eat well always. It has good food and customer service.
Minas was a busy place today! As always, great food and 8 of us had a great lunch.
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.
Expensive and not as many meat variations compared to last year, lunch for 4 people was about $150, I will reconsider next time.
Delicious food, but go hungry!
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.
Eder the Chef was very informative! Thank you for a great time!
great food! aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
We really enjoyed our exp here food was really good and as a celiac i had alot of choices, we will be back forsure!
Good food, service was good.
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.
Food is decent here but overall it’s far too expensive for what you get
This is our go to for Brazilian BBQ, the food is great and so is the coffee
Highly recommend! Great for children, and able to accommodate food intolerances. Wonderful variety of food and great service - 10 out of 10!
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.
Great service. The meat was delicious. Salad bar ok
Great value. The salad bar is always fresh with so many options to choose from. If you’re a vegetarian you should really try this place.
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.
Wonderful brunch experience, will go back again!
The service was fantastic. The food we felt was too salty though. The price is high but we understand there are lots of high value food items.
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.
food was tasty
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 :)
Great food, would highly recommend it. Repeat eaters for sure!
Its a good place for people who like the 'smorg' atmosphere.
Delicious! Wonderful flavours and excellent service.
Have been to many Brazilian steakhouses before and most recently in Brazil so was excited to try Mina's. It didn't disappoint. The meats were delicious and buffet options plentiful. The feijoada wasn't the best I've had...flavour was good but the beans needed a little more cooking. Service was great and friendly but to be honest, it was rather late in the evening and only a few tables were filled...would be interesting to experience it when full. Was our first meal in Calgary and it didn't disappoint...the only disappointment for me was that I got full quickly and couldn't eat as much as I would have liked!
Nice! Good customer service. Great food. Love it.
Meat is cooked too long, shame for this kind of meat. Good service
Everything was excellent. The food is high quality and service is excellent.
