    Granted, we were there during the World Cup. The Brazilian team played that day. There was a nonBrazilian game playing on the TVs throughout the place, and the game was on and loud. Most of the staff was wearing soccer jerseys. I had no problem with any of this. But I expected them to turn the TVs off or down when the last game was over. They left them on and LOUD through all the talking head rehashing of the games of the Cup. We asked if they could turn them down so we could converse with the family we took there. We were originally told no, that would not be possible. As the place cleared out of those who were there for the game, they did turn it down a bit. Not the conversation friendly meal we wanted.

    The food was delicious, but the restaurant was way too bright. It was also almost uncomfortably warm and there were a few flies buzzing about. I think this was due to the front door being left open. Also the exterior of the building needs some serious care.

    The food was delicious; the meats weren't too salty and the salad bar had a great selection. The service was equally outstanding: the waiters passed by fairly often and were more than willing to accommodate any requests as well as make us feel comfortable. The restaurant is also decorated in excellent taste and has a great, friendly vibe. (Prices were also very good, and the desserts were plentiful in option, elegant in presentation, and sublime in taste. Wonderful experience!

    Myself and a group of friends come in to the Miami area once a year to run an annual Spartan Race. It's one of our traditions, after a big run to go out to a Brazilian steakhouse in town for dinner. The first year that we came to Miami, Area Code 55 was great! Unfortunately this year, not so much so. It seemed as if they only brought out a selection of 5 meats over and over. We only were offered chicken one time despite requesting it several. The price has also increased over the previous year. I also found the $9 Crown and Coke to be a little excessively priced for the size offered. Next year on our annual trip, we will be looking for a different option for a Brazilian Steakhouse.

    This is not the type of restaurant where you would take your date out for a romantic dining experience. The atmosphere is loud and bombastic. While the food is good (especially the salad bar) I wouldn't say that it is worth the price you have to pay for it. If you like paying $100 for a meal for two, with an atmosphere that is casual dining and very loud, go for it. As for me, I'll go elsewhere next time.

    One of my favorite food to enjoy is bbq, I do it myself and for the past 20 years on weekends. Had the opportunity to taste different places that offer rodizio style bbq (Texas de Brazil, Porcao and other premium places) Area Code 55 offers the best service and quality meats for the cost. Period. Will recommend to meat and salad lovers.

    If you have a healthy appetite for meats with a nice salad bar and an assortment of sides, I would recommend Area Code 55. The scene is energetic and vibrant on the weekend. If you don't mind dining among a crowd you cannot beat the selections for the price. We skipped dessert and tried the roasted pineapple. It is to die for. Of all the cuts of meat, my family enjoyed the flavor and tenderness of the beef ribs (medium-well).

    I was expecting a sort of Brazilian steakhouse experience. They got it right on most of the buffet and they have the expected items that most of them don~t have like chicken heart, pineapple an a well roasted rib, but most of the different meats had the same taste and none of them had the expected amount of gross salt.

    Having lived in Brazil for many years, I'm very familiar with this type of rodizio type restaurant. Area Code 55 is a little pricey but worth it, particularly if you can handle large amounts of meat in one seating. Salad bar was good. Only complaint is that we had to ask for beef ribs twice.

  • Always a Favorite but does vary
    BlueSkies
    Dined on 10/23/2013
    This is one of our favorite restaurants in South Florida. When on top of their game, they rival Texas de Brazil but sometimes this isn't the case. This is a non-chain (at least not that we know of) Brazilian style Steakhouse where unlimited quantities of meat are served to you by "gauchos" tableside. A "higher end" salad bar includes cold meats, cheeses, various salads and some hot food. Service is usually very good. It is not as expensive as Texas de Brazil or Fogo de Chao. However, sometimes the meats are better quality/flavor/etc. than others. They have added large screen TV's usually playing soccer games to the main dining room which really decreases this from a fine dining experience in our opinion that it used to be prior.

    I wanted to go to a conveniently located local Argentinian steak place called The Knife. However, the reviews were terrible so I looked around for other options. I saw some positive comments about a Brazilian steak house called Area 55 which was a bit further away. The online reviewss were very positive. I thought it was worth a chance. I went with my mom and it turned out to be quite good. The salad bar was varied, flavorful and fresh. The meats were very freshly cooked, moist and succulent. The service was attentive and polite. The wine choices were reasonably priced. The espresso was excellent. Finally, the cost for salad bar and unlimited meat servings was just $29 per person. Tips were pre-added to the bill.
