    my fiance and I decided to try out this wonderful Brazilian steakhouse we first had our doubts when we saw that it was a buffet because we were looking for something less like a Chinese buffet but despite the odds the food was amazing they're sirloin steak cubes with garlic the second it touched my lips it just simply melted in my mouth even their rice was amazing I had so much flavor to it and the price wasn't bad for two people without drinks with the tip we paid 70.00 I would highly recommend this place to anyone they have outstanding lamb they have beef they have chicken pork they have bill anything you want tho have it

    This was our first time going and we had heard how the flow of food worked. I had actually eaten at a place similar to that before so I knew what to do! I really liked the salad bar beforehand, especially the egg salad! Loved the idea of the green and red signs for food! Genius! All restaurants should incorporate this with their wait staff! the variety of meats was great and the parmesan-crusted pork tenderloin was fabulous! I had fried plantains, mashed sweet potatoes (yea, I know), and grilled pineapple all for the first time and fell in love with them all! Just those three items alone were dessert for me! We were greatly satisfied and will be returning! Service attendant was great!

    Our large dinner party was sadly disappointed with the meat (their specialty) as it was extremely tough and salty. We tried almost every one that they offered and found none that we were thrilled with. We filled up on the fruits which were wonderful, but at $30 per person, not a great deal.

    Meats were not anywhere equal to what is pictured on restaurant ad. They were indistinguishable from each other. Extremely salty. Garlic mashed potatoes not garlicky at all and, just like the meats, extremely salty. Cheese biscuits were simply gougeres with no cheese taste at all-very bland. Ate 1 each and left rest of basket. We started with the salad bar-o.k.-nothing special. My husband got black beans and sausage soup from salad bar. No seasonings. He said it tasted like they had opened a can of black beans and dumped some kielbasa in it. The best part of the meal was the dessert, although we both thought it was from a restaurant supply. Food is definitely an insult to churrascaria style of cooking. We will never return.

    Great salad bar and meat. Service was slow on refilling glasses and taking finished plates off table. They would not honor 12 and under price even though their website states that children 12 and under eat for a discounted price. I have a 12 year old and he did not get a discount. Probably won't be back with our children. They just don't eat enough to pay full price.

    The salad bar was wonderful and filled with tons of tasty foods that I could not try all. There was a hot bar that I did not try at all but looked at and smelled and it was delicious. The meat was outstanding and when I asked if there was lamb our waiter found that server and sent him over. The sides of pineapple, 2 types of potato and a fried banana helped set off the meat. I really wanted to take home the left over sweet potato and mashed potato but no take out boxes. I usually take home a desert as I am usually too full from dinner but when I heard no take out boxes [which I can totally understand] I chose to not have desert. We have thought of many people we would like to take back here!! The staff is very attentive and wonderful.

    Leblon is not your typical southern restaurant. The blend of food is a bit spicy with more of a Mediterranean twist. We found the service a mixture of snootiness to meat slingers. It is a restaurant striving to be 5 star dining with 2 star help. We will most likely not return. If we want 5 star food, we will stick with those restaurants that offer 5 star service for the money.

The food was exceptional, all of these different kind of meats along with an all you can eat salad bar and did I mention the outstanding service? It doesn't get any better than that.

    I & my guess really enjoyed our dinner. However; when I made the reservations a question was asked if this was a special occasion. I said it was a birthday for one of the ladies, I gave her name. I thought something special would be given to this person, but it wasn't. Why was the question asked when nothing was done?

    I have been to Brazilian steakhouses in many cities in USA as well as in Brazil. Leblon is an excellent option for the price. It is better than many others but at a better price, which is amazing considering that it is the only one of its kind in the triad area.

    This was well worth the visit. I had eaten at one other Brazilian Steakhouse in the past but this one has certainly outdone that one in every area. The staff was so friendly and on top of EVERYTHING (right down to relating my reservation information to the bday guest I brought and sending her bday dessert without even being asked). The food was FRESH and DELICIOUS on the salad bar and the meat was so full of flavor that I really did eat more than anyone should ever eat in one sitting. I WILL be back with others. For the price, the service and the food it was well worth it.

    Celebrated a birthday for a family member here; had a wonderful and unique experience. This is truly a meat lover's dream but everything was 'melt in your mouth' great... Including the cheese bread, grilled pineapple, and the best cheesecake I may have ever tasted, with a delicious mango topping. The Birthday Sunday with candle was a wonderful closing touch. Service was fantastic and their attentiveness was very impressive. One of the staff members noted that my green card was up but that I was turning down options presented. He took the time to ask which meat i was waiting for, and had that over to our table within minutes.

    Dining with another couple, we wanted to go somewhere different. After reviewing restaurant options we decided to try Leblon. The restaurant is lovely and laid out nicely, the salad bar was fabulous, although I hesitate to call it a salad bar...it had wonderful traditional green salad, but also seasoned asparagus, greenbeans, cheeses, Brazillian stew, rice, etc. I would easily go just for the "salad" bar. The meat selection was terrific; juicy, hot and seasoned well. Dessert choices were fabulous. The ONLY complaint was the issue I had later. I am guessing that there is some MSG used in preparation of the meats, because I had a reaction that indicated the use. I would go back easily however...would ask the question about the use though.

    Unfortunately the different cuts of meat were over cooked, chewy & dry. Ribs were cooked too fast so they were chewy and couldn't separate the bones. I hate wasting food...I understand chicken has to be cooked all the way through but that's what a meat thermometer is for. The house specialty meat was very good along with the flank steak.

    If you want to experience the ultimate in feeding your desire for meat, this is it! A hidden gem of pure meat ecstasy. It did appear to be more of a man-cave secret hide-out, so being female myself, I felt privileged to be able to "hang with the boys" and eat as much animal flesh as possible. I'm a meat and potatoes kind of girl, and my craving for succulent and perfectly seasoned beef, pork, lamb, and chicken were completely overwhelmed. I left with a thorough satisfaction of feeding the man-animal in me, and quelling the desire for any kind of protein for the next few weeks. Thank you LeBlon. Certainly no one can say in your restaurant, "Where's the beef?" PS: Don't even get me started on the delectable salad bar! OMG!!!

    we had a party of 4 on Friday night. The food was great, and the service was top notch. We have been to Chimi's in Charlotte which also is a Brazilian restaurant, so it makes a nice comparison. The atmosphere is nicer and salad bar is much bigger at Chimi's, But Leblon's does a much better job on the meat presentation and how it is prepared. As soon as we sat down we informed our waiter that we were a medium rare crowd :-) for all the red meat including lamb. Everything they brought to our table was exactly medium rare. This was our first trip, but won't be the last.

    Leblon is a carnivore's dream come true. The beef is seasoned and broiled perfectly, melting in your mouth. The parmesan pork was excellent, and I'm not a lamb fan, but it too was very good. The salad/vegetable bar is all you can eat with fresh salad makings and roasted, marinated and raw veggies. Don't load up on the salad and veggies, save the room for the meat. Service is very good and if there was a special request, our server would have the gaucho either stop by our table or go the kitchen to have it served table-side. Plan to spend two hours or so and pace yourself through all the meat offerings. Don't skip the cheese bread knots, they were excellent. Choose the Key-lime pie off the dessert tray, you won't be disappointed.

    This was my first visit to Leblon. I was very impressed with the salad bar. I was able to try foods that I had never tried before. Everything on the salad bar was wonderful. The meat...where to begin. Of all of the meats, the sausage was my absolute favorite. We had lamb, steak, prime rib, ribs, turkey wrapped in bacon (YUMMMM), pork, chicken legs (YUMMMM), grilled pineapple. The little cheese rolls tasted like little popovers and were so good! I would highly recommend this restaurant. My husband is very picky about his meat. He does not like a lot of spices so I think even he would like Leblon. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful.

    Lablon Churrascaria is a great place for those who especially like red meat. And, if meat is not your optimal taste, the fantastic salad bar is a great option. With unlimited amounts of food continually served by the gauchos, everyone is sure to leave quite full! Service is great. Having eaten at several churrascarias in Brasil, I was curious as to how authentic Lablon might be. It's very close to what I found in Brasil. It would be a great place for a group party.

    The food was great and the service was very good. We chose this for our anniversary and was very pleased. Very pricey but well worth it. The only complaint that i have is being at the corner table we got over looked a lot when our chips was turned over so we missed out on some rounds of food and sat there with our plates empty. The one meat that never came around was the prime rib and they didnt have the salmon out on the salad bar like they advertised.

Everything was great and I highly suggest this for anyone that is hungry as the food is non-stop until you turn the card. I just wish they had the fruit salad as the last 3 times it was not there and I have been so disappointed. But that is my only SLIGHT complaint:)

    Me and my hubby took our dads here for Father's Day dinner. The food was outstanding. We started with the salad bar which was amazing. The layout and variety of choices were all appealing. By the time we returned from the salad bar, the servers came with the different kinds of meats. The best was chicken and bacon-wrapped filet. The sides were incredible, especially the fried plaintains. I will definitely return and will recommend to my friends and family.

    The food was great and very easy to overeat!!! We were seated in the bar and the dinner lasted forever because the gauchos spent significant time serving in the main dining room. Visits to our table were few and far in between and we had to request that they come back to the table. Other than this the dinner was great and tasted awesome, so sit in the dining room and you will get more out of the evening.
