“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2012

I have always been a fan of Brazilian restaurants of these type but we did not have one in Eau Claire. If my family and I wanted to have Brazilian we had to go to Minneapolis. It is great to have Piranha in Eau Claire now. We tried it one time and the food was very good and as good as other Brazilian restaurants we have tried. The service was very good too.

“OK, But Not Great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2012

Piranha wants to be Fogo De Chao, but its not. The food is really all over the map from bad to good, depending on what you get. Most of the beef cuts are average or above average, but the chicken and lamb were overcooked and dry. There's also a real issue with the seasoning levels. For example, I had the same cut of beef from two different skewers in one night. The first one was quite tasty and done appropriately, whereas the second skewer was ridiculously over-salted to the point of being inedible. It is that sort of inconsistency that makes it unlikely I'll be back. For the prices they are charging, I can get a great steak at several different places in town and I don't have to worry about getting a salt lick on a plate.
