    Very good Brasilian rodizio at an excellent price. The salad/appetizer bar was a little smaller than Chima, but good quality. Service was excellent, with the gauchos bringing the correct doneness to the correct people in our group.

    this was not our first time at Grimpa and we always enjoyed their great food and service, this time, sadly was not the case, being in the customer service bussines we have organized several company dinners at Grimpa to show our distributors what "customer service" is all about, last thursday we felt like they really didin't apreciated our bussiness, the waiter had no experience at all, even when he tryed his best it was not at "Grimpas level". the food was excelent as always, the only issue was that when we first started dinner the "gauchos" wanted to stuff us with meat and after that it was very hard to get them to the table, in other words the "all you can eat" is relative.

    Dined on 1/23/2013
    I went to Grimpa's for the second time in a span of 1 week. The food was definitely delicious, specially the picanha. Our favorite one was the picanha with garlic. I did not see anyone walking around with filet mignon so I asked for it. I was very disappointed with it. I did not liked the taste and the texture at all. The churrasco was very good too. I would have liked to have chicken hearts, but it is not available at the restaurant. The risotto salad was my side dish and it went pretty well w all the meat we had. The service was outstanding!!! I highly recommend Grimpa's.

    I was lookiing forward to receive this request. One of the most (if not THE MOST) memorable nights' out in quite a while. The ample selection of food as well as the drinks (served DIRECTLY at your own table)makes this a DEFINITE place to visit. From the moment we arrived, the maitre'd... and the waiter(no words to express the EXCELLENT SERVICE AND PERSONAL ATTENTION RECEIVED!) it was a night to remember ( for ALL the RIGHT REASONS!!) .

    Usually, I am not one to make a decision based on other reviews. But in this case, I wish I did. The ambiance was really nice, but the food is a totally different story. They brought me a piece of steak that was still practically alive! It was bleeding on my plate and the server said it was only juice! *gag face* The only meat that was good was the chicken wrapped in bacon. Everything else taste like the only ingredient they owned was SALT. The talapia was extra bland. Salmon wasokay. The gauchos took forever to bring my friend a piece of sirloin she asked for. After waiting about 15 minutes, we decided to leave (mind you, there was only one other party there and this was at 5:30pm). This place is ehhh. Save time and go to Texas de Brazil.

    We decided on Grimpa to celebrate my birthday. Our first time was a delightful dinning experience. The quality and preparation of food is superb. The hot/cold "salad" bar was extraordinary. Service was professional and friendly. The only negative is the wine list, which is priced for the expense account crowd, if they still exist. I would recommend Grimpa and would definitely go back.

    Meats were a bit salty and lacking variety I've had at other brazilian steakhouses. Missed out on trying a lot off things because the same meats kept circling and the different meats didn't appear till we were done. Sides were ok, nothing spectacular. Took 30 minutes to get the check.

    Exceptional service. Elegant restaurant. Felt that we got our "money's worth." Non-stop service of a great variety of roasted meats walked around by waitstaff and served graciously. Also, table service of hot side dishes, and very plentiful salad bar, with hot and cold items. They were happy to serve meat by temperature ( rare/medium rare, etc) when requested. However, not the best meat I've ever had, and was thirsty for the rest of the night due to the meats being quite salty.

    Dined on 5/13/2012
    I have been to many churrascaria's in America and Brasil and this one was very good. The picanha and baby beef were excellent and the fried bananas were as good as any I've had. The salad bar was solid and the caipirinha was good (but a little small). The service wasn't quite as fast and furious as most other rodizios, but they did bring specific requests quite quickly. I went with my 1.5 year old daughter and there were quite a few other kids. This is a nice restaurant and tolerated children very well.

    Arrived to the restaurant with a party of seven and the host opened the door did a bow and welcomed us to the restaurant. Very pretty glass wine cellar and elegantl buffet. This restaurant is really the cream de la creme of Brazillian Steakhouses. The meats were delicately tender, prefectly seasoned. The food is just amazing, love opentable because I have visited 10 restaurants in 4 months and this one by far is my favorite.

    I recently took my boyfriend here for his birthday. We live in the Downtown Miami/ Brickell area and it is conveniently located in Mary Brickell Village (the free metro mover has two stops near the restaurant). And I love that the restaurant is located on the other side of PF Changs, so you don't pick up the noise from Miami Ave. They have a great ambiance for outside seating. The staff is very well trained. They are knowledgeable, friendly, attentive, and professional. The salad bar is impeccable and every cut of meat was cooked to perfection. Tip: You must try the caipirinha (Brazilian mojito) - they make it at your table. I can't wait to go back!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    We were in Miami for one night only as we were boarding a Carnival cruise ship the next day and chose to try Grimpa's based on another website's promotion. I have never experienced an Argentinian steakhouse and it blew my mind! Not only was the quality, quantity, and availability of the meat outstanding, the coordinating buffet/salad bar was by far one of the best I have ever experienced. The buffet manager was consistently checking and rechecking the different items and doing quality checks every time. We saw her take off some asparagus that was obviously not up to par and knew then that it was required to be nothing but the best. Outstanding!

    This was my first time at a Brazilian Steakhouse. The food was pretty good. Wished they had more options for hot food. the only real downside to our evening was that the air conditioning in the dining room was out. So it was very warm in there. The manager did comp us free drinks though.

    If you've never been there before, this is a tricky address to find. Consequently, we were somewhere between 10-15 minutes late as we had trouble finding it. When we arrived, and explained our predicament, the person at the reception desk advised that their computer "automatically kicked us out of the system" since we were late and our table was given to another party. It seemed that not all tables were full but he suggested we go outside to their "happy hour" area and wait for "about 10-15 minutes". Outside was empty. We ended up waiting 45 minutes and realized diners were made to wait so they would order drinks outside--very bad practice. Food was good; our server extremely nice but reception staff needs retraining.
