    Incredible food! I happened to live in Brazil for some 5 years, and our "garcon" (waiter) was stunned that I was talking to him in Portuguese! The restaurant is a little "pricey" ... but worth every $ !!! Highly recommended!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    The food I rated as Very Good, because it is. The was a wide array of meats being served, and there wasn't one thing i did not like. The service however, was awful. It seems our waiter had one task, getting us drinks. He couldn't even handle that. At one point I had to go inside to find out why we were no longer being served (this was after 15 minutes mind you). our waiter was more concerned with signing happy Birthday to other guests than to check in on us, and had to be searched for on more than one occasion. It's a shame as the food really was good, the drinks were ok, (i think that could have just been an inexperienced bartender) and because of this we will not be going back.

    Everything was top notch. The tables are a bit close together, so watch when you're getting up. The price was near $50 a person, but it was totally worth it for the quality of the food and servers.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    The food was great but we couldn't order a refill on our iced tea so we were thirsty for most of the entire meal. We felt it was because we weren't drinking alcohol so we were ignored. Finally the only female waitress saw that we were trying to get someones attention and she helped us. It was her first day on the job and she was so caring. The manager of the restaurant came over and he couldn't have cared less if we were taken care of or not. He was rude. Over all the food was amazing and it was fun.

    Very nice location in downtown Delray but unfortunately the service was poor and the food just okay. I have been to several brazilian steakhouses (including the original Fogo De Chao in Sao Paulo, Brazil) and the experience has been exceptional. This experience was no where even close.

    Horrific welcome. Meat was tasty but buffet was third world: mashed potatoes likely came from a box.. No ambience and overpacked, with a cheesy guy in a sweatshirt playing guitar in the corner for music. Waiters were kind but could not make up for the rest of the experience. Overpriced. Terrible.

    Food was just ok - cheapest cuts came out first and had to request filet and ribs. Even thought the restaurant was not very full, service seemed to take longer than it should have. Entertainer was a bit too proactive for our taste and came off as overbearing.

    The meat was. Tasteless or had to much garlic. For the price of dinner you could go to a fine steak house. The wait staff was creepy and flirted with under age people at my table. I would never go Back again.

The servers really know how to cater to the customers like we are Kings! I even asked for a filet mignon and they cooked a special one just for me. Definitely a spot you have to try. Go for an early dinner to avoid a rush and be able to try all of the meats.

    I have discovered a new love for Braziliian Steakhouses. Gol! Quickly became one of my favorites. I like to read reviews written by other customers. The biggest complaint was the food came slow. In my opinion, the food came at an excellent pace. My plate was overflowing but it gave me the opportunity to eat and savor the flavors of the meat while it was still hot. The waiter/ meat craver provided a brief description or history of the meats. I thought was very informative being a newbie to the Brazilian Foods. There foot bar roused a variety of side dishes. The others in the past were limited to what was brought to your table. This was an added plus. The service was excellent. I would recommend to others.

    We were always interested in trying out this restaurant. We bought a Groupon offer and tried it out. The atmosphere of the restaurant resembled a buffet dining hall and lacked the trendiness of the other restaurants on Atlantic. While the food and service was fair, we felt that our Saturday night out without the kids could have been better elsewhere.
