The salad and side dish bar is just OK but if you're into red meat, this place is great. It's a place to binge on all different marinated meats. The chicken was actually not very good...very mushy..and the bacon-wrapped filet was disappointing (bacon was all fat and undercooked) but the other meats were delicious. The noise level was fine until the music and dancers played...then it was impossible to have a conversation. That might be good when sitting at a bar but when you're trying to have dinner, the extremely loud music is just annoying and literally stops conversation. The price for all that red meat isn't cheap but for a binge night on a variety of meats can be enjoyable. In all, we probably won't go back again. Too much of tasty but very unhealthful dishes. If I was younger, and didn't worry about health, I'd go back.
The dance the girls do is so cool. Very friendly staff. Loved it.
We took our daughter there for her birthday and were very impressed with the attention we were given and the overall high spirited atmosphere! The Brazilian dancers were a wonderful surprise!
Love the food, but since this is not a large restaurant, they need to turn down the music when the dancers perform. None of us at our table could even hear each other. Service is wonderful!
Excellent service all around. Friendly staff and great master chef serving good food with a great sense of humor. We will definitely be back. A++++. I will highly recommend to all over here in Santa Monica, we need one over here. Thank you. AL
Great all you can eat food. Fast service, great environment. There were beautiful dancers center floor as well.
THE BUFFET AREA WHERE FOOD WAS LOCATED WAS TIGHT TO MOVE AROUND.
DINING AREA - TABLES WERE SQUEEZED TOGETHER WITH OTHER FREE STANDING TABLES. KEPT BUMPING WITH OTHER DINERS WHEN YOU GET UP TO GO TO BUFFET AREA AND RETURNING.
LIGHTS WERE A LITTLE DARK FOR BRUNCH, BUT WILL BE GREAT FOR EVENING DINING.
A couple of months back I took my stepson to a similar restaurant in Las Vegas (Pampas) for lunch. I did that to try out this "Brazilian Style" restaurant. It was a great experience and it was just under $30 for lunch. He ate, I watched. Since it was my daughter's 18th and my 60th birthday we decided to give Kravings a try. Reviews were great, so we risked spending the $49 a head for dinner. What a HUGE disappointment. I always ask everyone I'm with when we're done with a meal how they would rate the place on a scale from 1-10. Overall the ratings averaged a mediocre 5! Many people seem to like this place, but the way I rate it myself is on what I would have paid for the meal vs. what I ACTUALLY paid. I felt I got a $100 meal for the 4 of us. The bill was $275 with tip. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. Many feel otherwise, but just for the record, I do NOT recommend this place!
We went here for my birthday brunch and had a great time.
My husband and I went to Kravings for our first wedding anniversary dinner, and it was a very fun night! The market table had tons of great options (I could eat that cheese bread all night long), and the meat was absolutely delicious. My only complaint would be that we didn't get to try all of the meats - it seemed like the same 5-6 options kept circulating. However, when we asked one of the servers to try something different, he brought it out a few minutes later, so it could just be that they circulate the most popular choices more frequently.
We also got to see some Brazilian dancers that were very entertaining (my husband was completely enthralled). Overall, we had a great night and left very full and happy!
This was our third family birthday brunch at Kravings. It is our go-to restaurant for special events. The service is unbeatable - we are always welcomed as honored guests and treated like royalty. The buffet is the best in LA for variety and quality - not to mention the table-side parade of grilled meats!! Best value around.
The meat was pathetic. It did not taste fresh.
It was delicious! Fun experience. If you are a big eater with a big appetite the value is great. But for me, it seemed very expensive because you can't eat as much!
The staff are all five-stars for service - courteous, solicitous, attentive without intrusion. The host did everything imaginable to make our birthday party brunch enjoyable and memorable.
This was my first time using this reservation service and this restaurant. I would highly recommend both friends and family. So happy we went there!
Went for brunch, service was incredibly slow, 3 people. Only one was coming around with the different meats, and not even to every table. Also only saw maybe half of the meats that were supposed to be offered, could also be because they came around with the meat maybe every 20 minutes. When a table next to us left, was not picked up or cleaned by the time we left, which was at least 30min. Some of meats a bit dry as well
We come here everyday for our anniversary. This time service was not so impressive. It took 20min to get some meat, the server really didnt acknowledge us. All he did was bring us drinks and that is all. We had to ask him for the meat, if the had a dessert menu, we didnt really feel like our presence was noticed. We came all the wa from Phoenix just to eat here. Food was awesome as always. But next time of going somewhere else.
Over priced! Meat low quality and not cooked by authentic Brazilian cooks. Cheap wine.
The host was awesome. Very accomdating have us a good spot to chill and at the same time able to see the dancers. The foot is superb and appetizer are awesome. Recommended to all.
Overpriced. Service mediocre. Noisy. Would not allow me to take home leftovers. Ridiculous. Similar to most other overrated Brasilian restaurants. Doubt this place will be in business a year from now.
