    This is not a regular Brazilian Steak house….they are very stingy with the meat. Refused to give us extra portions of a specific meat we wanted.

    This is probably my fault but didn't realize that they no only offer the true churrasco style and served rodízio sytle on Sundays. Food was good, Service was better. Of course we will be back, but probably only on Sundays for the time being.

    We had a 6:15 dinner reservation. The restaurant was not very packed and we were seated at our table immediately. We were then poured waters and told that someone would be back to take our drink orders and to go over the menu with us. 45 minutes later, multiple attempts to get the attention of someone to take our order, and we decided to get up and leave. I was really looking forward to tasting the food and it looked / smelled amazing on everyone else’s plates.

    Walked in at our reservation time and said hi to the five staff at the door standing there—no response. I thought off the bat that was pretty rude. No hello, how are you, not even a smile. After five minutes of awkwardly standing there with no interaction one of them asked TWICE which I answered TWICE “do you have reservations”…which we did. They were not attentive whatsoever and I felt that set the vibe right then and there. Five people standing there and didn’t even look at us or say hello as we stood there for five minutes? Not acceptable. Our waitress was super sweet so we were happy with her. However that’s about as far as it went. The lamb chops were small and tough, chicken was dry, the Alfredo pasta was dry and cold. Mashed potatoes were also cold. However my steak was cooked well and very good. Not sure about $33 good, but it was definitely better than the other food at our table. The prices of the meals were not inexpensive by any means and the price should reflect the quality, which it did not. Way too expensive for the sub par quality 100%. I wish we would have just went to Real Seafood and spend our $150 there instead. We will not be back.

    Do not come here thinking it’s a normal Brazilian steakhouse. They only do the full Brazilian exp on Sundays. No where does it say that on the website nor OpenTable at time we went. The place was pretty much empty on a Saturday night at 6pm. Not a good sign.

    Upon first arriving and being seated for our reserved time it took 20 mins before any server greeted us but that was more or so the seating staff that did not communicate that after that Juan noticed us and took over the situation since no one else was he did a great job and was nice to talk too. Food came out hot and was upon some of the best I have been served at a restaurant and I’m not easy to please being that I have been cooking for many years. Definitely would suggest this place to anyone visiting or living in bay city. Great Job!

    This was my 05th time at Costella. Their consistency on food is excellent. The service and the warmth adds to everything and makes for a wholesome dining experience in an area with limited options. This is a MUST GO TO place for quality food served with a BIG smile. You will feel welcome and valued

    Unfortunately, the full churasca experience is only available on sundays. We didn’t know this, so we had to order off the menu. It took a long time to get a waiter to our table, even though it was mostly empty. The waiter apologized profusely, but the drinks also took a long time to come. (Same with food) The waiter apologized at every turn, but when the food was good. I ordered the lamb chops and my wife the filet. Both were cooked perfectly, and the portions were good. Great flavor on the food and the cocktails were delicious! I would go there again, but only for the full experience.

    Paid a premium price for below average service (while it was fairly dead inside) and a very limited selection in food choices for a Brazilian steak house. We were promised 15 different meat selections and only received 7 or 8 at a very limited quantity, some of the meats were old as well. Have been to multiple Brazilian steak houses and this was by far the worst.
