I visited in the summer of 2012 so there may have been some improvements made. The salad bar could be improved upon. the carpet looked dirty and dingy and the place just did not look first rate. The service was good however, and the young manager we very warm and welcoming. I could tell that he was determined to try to make the place a success and he was receptive to comments. I would try the place again.
noting was on the salad bar
Probably not some place we would go again. While the price was good, compared to other brazilian steakhouses, just not comparable on the quality of the good.
The place was horrible. They had grill issues. We waited on food the entire time. The food had no seasoning. The meat was tough and the was covered in fat. The salad bar was bare or left empty. They closed early due to grill issues and didn't even try compensate.
The servers and hostess were very pleasant and I had enough meat offered . The salad bar items were adequate and labeled well enough. It was not fancy but was clean and not great food , but tasty.
There is not a good variety of meats for a Brazilian Steakhouse and some of the meat was tough.
It took forever for my best meat cut to come to the table (picanha). When it came, I could only have very thin few slices because after the guy cut one slice, the meat would be raw and "bleeding". Also, I am from Brazil and my favorite side dishes to go with meat are farofa and vinagrete. I asked a server for farofa and vinagrete. She said they did not have any of those. They also don't have fries, which go with steaks.
The groupon was very misleading. I thought I would be getting two "rodizios", and that's not what happened. All I got was a "$40 off" of the final bill. Each "rodizio" was $28.50 per person.
Consider going between 5 and 7 P.M. for faster service and less crowded.
From Our Editors
Waiters at Folia Brazilian Steakhouse waltz across dining rooms wielding spears full of sizzling meats lauded by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution for their succulence. To signal their hunger to roving waiters, diners simply display a green card near their plate, prompting waiters to proffer juicy picanha sirloin, sling out plump sausages, or stampede toward the table in an ill-fated game of Red Light, Green Light. Guests can devise elaborate salads at the expansive salad bar, where traditional leafy options mingle with tangy ceviche and seared tuna. House wines, from chardonnay to cabernet sauvignon, pair off with bites of steak or nibbles of fish to sneak into stomachs on the heels of well-spoken toasts. Piquant flavors and traditional Brazilian spices find an easy home within the dramatic red and deep mahogany colors of the dining room, transporting patrons and their palates to a place where gauchos gather around fire pits to relish both food and flames.
