Novilhos Brazilian Steakhouse - South Lake Union

Welcome to Novilhos! The Brazilian "Churrasco" has been a tradition for generations in Southern Brazil.
Mon-Fri - Happy Hour from 4-7pm

Welcome to Novilhos! The Brazilian "Churrasco" has been a tradition for generations in Southern Brazil, where Gauchos (Brazilian Cowboys) pierced large pieces of meat and slowly grilled them over open flamed pits.

With a fixed price and this unique style of barbecue, Novilhos features continuous service of sixteen selections of beef, chicken, pork, lamb and sausage, all slowly spin-roasted, preserving their natural flavors and textures.

When perfectly grilled, these delectable cuts are brought to you directly from
the grill and expertly served by our carvers, dressed in Gaucho outfit.

Novilho's unique concept also offers an elaborated and sumptuous salad buffet with a variety of fresh cut vegetables, gourmet salads and side dishes, along with imported cheeses, cold cuts and other tasty seasonal items.

Join us...and tell all your friends you've had the experience!

Bom apetite e Muito Obrigado!

It’s happy hour in Brazil, right!?
...Indeed it is! Savor our happy hour specials at the bar or in the lounge and celebrate the evening with a taste of Brazil!

[07/06/17]   Subject: Novilhos Seattle Location Permanent Closure July 2017
(from Mr. Luiz Franco Co-Owner/Manager ~ Novilhos Brazilian Steakhouses)

Dear Valued Guest:
For the last four years, Novilhos South Lake Union has proudly served the Seattle community, providing a much loved, high quality product in a family-friendly, convivial atmosphere.
Now, unfortunately, it is with a heavy heart that I announce that the South Lake Union Novilhos location is permanently closed, as of today. Our intention was to remain open until March 31, 2018 when our lease is up but, regrettably we have decided to close six months in advance of this date.
We have developed many friendships and loyal customers over the last four years, and my staff and I shall miss them. Many thanks to my devoted employees, valuable customers, suppliers and the great city of Seattle.
Thank you for being a part of the Novilhos family. I wish you all the best that life has to offer.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call 425 553-3333 or email ( and speak to Deba Wegner, Novilhos Events & Community Relations for assistance.

Our original Novilhos Brazilian Steakhouse - Bellevue location is open, unaffected and will continue to serve our patrons.

Thank you again for your support and patronage.
