    We have been to the Bloomington restaurant twice now, and have enjoyed both visits. My husband liked our most recent visit even more, and wished we could have gone back again the next night! The food is fresh, hot, and excellent. My kids have enjoyed their meals, too. You just need to make sure you ask for the top shelf selections, if that is what you are getting. The pineapple, bacon wrapped meats, and ribeye are our family favorites! We're happy to have a new favorite place in Bloomington!

    Food was good, but the service was absolutely terrible. Sung happy birthday for every table that requested it but ours. Didn’t pay attention to our table, service was slow.

    Need a little more consistency with variety of meats coming to your table. Sirloin and chicken came around regularly, pineapple and garlic beef not so much.

    Just our observation but it just seemed the beef dishes didn't come around to our table very often. The sausage, chicken dishes, pork dishes, pineapple and lamb came around frequently.

    The staff were excellent and extremely attentive. We had 3 little kids and everyone helped ensure their needs were also met - going above and beyond by thinking to bring little utensils for them and even helping to make them smile laugh or eave back at the little ones as they went about their job. We were very impressed and the service alone is a reason to go back (the food is excellent as well).

    This was our first experience at this restaurant and we were seated right next to the salad bar. I thought, "Oh, how nice." After we were finished with our salad plates, the waitress gals promptly came and replaced them with dinner plates. I don't know if it was because we were using a Groupon or what but, every meat guy with a skewer who came out of the kitchen automatically went right past us (and our GREEN "Serve Us" cards), and they immediately headed for other tables in every other area of the restaurant as if we were INVISIBLE. This went on for a while. Finally one guy came around with garlic beef. We all had a small piece (most of which was fat) so the four of us ended up with one or two bites and an empty plate. After that, we sat around looking at each other WAITING for someone to offer us another cut of meat. It was actually awkward how long we waited. Finally, I flagged down one of the gals who were seating people and asked if she could please send servers over with some of the beef entrees. She very kindly said, "Of course," and from that point on, we were flooded with Brazilian men around us with meat......even when our cards were turned over to the red side. From that point on, our experience was excellent. My advice is, when you are paying this amount of $$$ for a dining experience for 4 (Groupon or not), this is no time to be meek and mild. Speak up!!! Tactfully and "politely" ask for the service you deserve.

    Best Brazilian Steakhouse I have ever been to! Super attentive staff, from the wait staff to management to bussers. And always "what can we get you" instead of flagging down people. So many options. Amd they sang happy birthday in Portuguese! Will definitely be back!

    Nice ambiance, courteous and helpful serving staff. The meats that ]were not over-cooked] were delicious and the salad bar & sides were also very good. However, many of the presented beef cuts were well done & completely dry. Perhaps it was because at that time of day they were not very busy so the meats didn’t rotate as frequently . Will try again during a busier time period to see if a bit better.

    The cosmopolitan sheik decor of Bullvino's is a welcome change in the otherwise pretty casual Bloomington eats scene. Unfortunately, beyond that, the experience is meh. Despite the tabletop "signs" for accepting or passing on waiter's meat offerings, they are ignored and the interruptions are almost constant. When we did ask for specific offerings (as our seating waiter explained we could), we waited nearly 15 minutes for them to arrive. The salad bar is extensive and fresh but you want to eat sparingly to save room for the meat entrees. With pricing at $39.99 or $49.99 a person depending on the type of steak you want offered to you, its a steep price to pay. Plus, despite the steep prices, the meats are disappointing. Even rare servings are chewy rather than tender. Overall, I'd rather spend my money on steaks at home on the grill.

    All is good but not as good as first time we went there. Some of the food were salty and you can taste the salt cause they are quite big. We ask for the pineapple a few times but only got it once thru out our date night. Overall still good maybe work on the salt and service of request a little bit. 😉

    We went to Bullvino's with several friends and everyone raved about how amazing the food is. We were all impressed with the quality and quantity of food and are still talking about it this morning. Several friends said this is now their favorite place for a nice meal out.
