Top of the Line
The experience at Leblon was wonderful! My parents, daughter, granddaughter, and myself enjoyed the elegant dining atmosphere. The salad bar provided many different and succulent items as well as the soup bar. As for the varieties and quantity of meats, any person who enjoys the finer cuts of meat and the "abundance thereof" will surely be in for a treat!

I enjoyed everything that night, I didn't like some on the meats but it all was great.

This was a great dining experience. We went on our anniversary. It was my husband's first time going there and he loved it. I was excited to see him trying all of the different meats that he was offered. He loved some more than others but the experience was well worth the money. Thank you for a memorable experience.

Special Dining Experience
I took my husband to Leblon for Father's Day as he is a meat connoisseur. We were very pleased with the service and the overall experience. I will say that it for us, the meats were overcooked. We like our meats cooked medium and everything was medium well if not well done. The salad bar was good but offered a lot of pickled foods (pickled beets, pickled peppers, pickled onions). It was a bit much for the pallet.

The food was absolutely amazing and the service cannot be beat. Even during a busy holiday lunch, the service staff never missed a beat! Will definitely come back!

a great romantic gem
This is the best place ever to eat. The servers were all great and the food is just out of this world goodness. You also can't beat the price for the quality of the food. The dessert is great I highly suggest the keylime pie or the flan.

Chicken salad was a little
Chicken salad was a little different. We prefer the usual way.

Best food in town
My husband and I went here for our anniversary and the food was out of this world! We can not wait to go back! Our server was great and took his time explaining everything to us!

The continuous dining experience
The continuous dining experience was nice but took a little to get used to. The food was excellent and the salad bar was awesome! The service was outstanding!
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a great dinner, everything was outstanding!!! I am looking at bringing my faciltiy here for Christmas! Looking forward to coming back soon:)

Nice dining experience
We had a group of 9 that included kids & "late arrives." Our waitstaff accommodated us graciously. The food was good & everyone seemed satisfied with the entire experience. We enjoyed the dinner.

Geat food and service
Had a great time with friends here. A little expensive for regular visits, but well worth the price.

We were greeted & served by Kevin and all the wonderful swordsmen! every time they passed with the fresh and delicious HOT off the grills and coals beef, pork, chicken, lamb, & sausage!!!!!! we were swept off our plates by the aroma, appearance, and then the flavors. The only one we had that was too salty was the bacon wrapped turkey. The mashed sweet potatoes and the mashed white potatoes are AMAZING & so fresh!!!!! The Parmesan rolls are dainty and delicious. The salad bar is a meal on its own! If you plan ahead ... Eat light before you go and you will have room for the portions and the money's worth. Oh, it is SOOOOOO worth it!!!!!!
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Have small bites of everything first, then go back for your favorites.
Don't miss the hot salmon at the salad bar!
7/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful place to eat, really enjoyed great food for our anniversary. Thank you and we will definitely be back!!
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service and great ambience. The food was delicious, especially the eggplant and the shrimp salad. With the exception of the ribs... The choice, selection and quality were superb. The cold bar was astounding... yet it was not refilled as promptly as we would have liked, given the number of patrons on Friday night at 6:30.
The ribs were so dry and unpalatable, they were left on the plate by all 6 in our party. There is one suggestion that I would make for table side meat carving service, that is to keep the meat away from patrons while trying to carve. Juices flew out of the meat while carving, making you dodge the drippings. Other than these small flaws, it was an overall excellent dining experience. Thank you!

Leblon Brazilian Steakhouse
The restaurant was very quiet, even though it was busy and offered a nice romantic ambience. The food was cooked very well and we have been to a Brazilian Steakhouse before - this one was more low-key and the food was coming out prepared perfect and they were not coming out too slow or too fast to enjoy the meal. The wait staff was very friendly and the wine was very good. The bar was smaller than some Brazilian places, but wasn't too small to where you didn't have enough to eat. Definitely recommend.

We went there for my husband's birthday. Food was exceptional, as always. Service was good, but left something to be desired. Waiter also had a large party, and they commanded most of his attention. I had listed that it was a birthday on the reservation, and they did nothing for my husband, though they did provide 2 birthday desserts to the party, 2 to a small table near us, and 3 others during our meal. Someone called and changed our reservation and stated that they were not opening until 5:30 on Sunday; however, when we arrived promptly at 5:30, there were tons of people already eating and their reservation list showed a number of tables at 5:00. I would have changed anyway, but I don't appreciate being lied to.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place is such a great dining experience! If you've never been you must go! We go about 3-4 times a year and enjoy it every time. The food is great and so many meat choices! If you have a carnivore husband like me this is the place to go. We both are so full when we leave we waddle out. (Which normally doesn't happen at a "fancy" restaurant.)

A wonderful diner
The restaurant had a great salad buffet. The fact that they had servants bring out a bunch a different meats for you to try was incredible! Also the desert was the best I have ever had! A great and amazing place to eat!

Took my two sons in to celebrate them returning to school for the fall. They had never been before, so it was an experience to watch. One looked at me later as he flipped his card to red and said, "I thought you were kidding when you said they kept coming.". The food was awesome as always, the service was excellent and we couldn't have had a better time.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had been wanting to eat at Leblon Restaurant for quite some time. Overall, I felt the food and the service was very good. The salad bar was wonderful but I did not eat as much from the salad bar as I would have liked because I wanted to hold room for the meat as well. I really would have preferred to have been able to order the meat only without the salad bar since you can order the salad bar without the meat. It would be nice to make one trip to the restaurant just to order from the salad bar and another trip just to order the meat and side dishes that come with it. I felt a little cheated since I could not hold as much food as I would have liked for the cost of the meal.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food. Salad bar
Excellent food. Salad bar alone is superb. A fun and different way to dine.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We Enjoyed Our Visit
I took my wife for our 37th wedding anniversary. Very friendly reception and waiter. The food was great if not a little pricey. Definitely not a weekly stop for dinner. Great salad bar...may go back for just that next time.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my second time to Leblon and it was good of not better then the first time. The food was so so good, and. The service was top notch. I will be going back again, and again, and again.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great experience !!!
My experience over all was great, I took my dad for his 62nd Birthday and he even enjoyed his self. The food was delicious and atmosphere was Beautiful & quiet. The only thing I would have a problem with would be the $30 a person for dinning...
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
When my friend introduced Leblon to me a few years ago, I knew I found a little piece of Heaven. Not only do they have a bar filled with a variety of vegetables, cheese and bread, but the endless array of meat that comes off of a spit is nothing short of delicious. From chicken, to parmesean crusted pork, to prime rib, you are sure to find something that pleases any palette. Leblon...you just cannot be beat!
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time visit
We had been to Leblon several years ago at the old location, and it was before it changed its format to a Churrascaria. Everything about it was enjoyable. The food quality, flavor, service, wine list, ambiance, background music was good, not too loud. Every employee was friendly and attentive. We will return.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had visited a similar restaurant years ago in a different state. For my birthday this year, I decided to come here for dinner. My husband and daughter had never experienced this type of restaurant. We are all extremely satisfied (and full!). The folks are extremely friendly. Our beverages never got below 3/4 of a glass. Superb quality food.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent dining experience
My wife and I look foward to dining here when were in the area. The service is excellent and the food is delicious. I would highly recommend this place, whether it's a romantic date with your significant other or bring the whole family. Be prepared for a wonderfull dining experience.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
different but good!
We tried this the other night and it wss delicious! We took our 2 kids (6 years old) and they liked it too so its definately kid friendly

Name does not do it justice
Let me say this restaurant was fantastic! We had a party of 6 and from the time we arrived until the time we left we were pampered and taken care of like we owned the place.. I had a gracious conversation with the owner and she was absolutely a charming person and in like fashion the food she provided for our party was fantastic.. The service was outstanding and the server was extremely knowledgeable and extremely courteous.. The menu was outstanding with the selection of basic expectations for a Brazilian Churascara(??).. The price was in line with what was expected and VERY reasonable for the quality of the selections available. The meat selection, for a Brazilian eatery, was on a conservative traditional path..no exotics.. A+++++ Great
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I brought the girlfriends here so they could enjoy a new experience and it was loved around the table!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is my second visit. It was just as good this time as the last. Our first was for an anniversary, and I wanted to bring our son when he returned home for college fall break. He loved it.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is my second time eating here and it was great. A bit on the expensive side, but worth it to have a nice meal with friends and family.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
A nice place to celebrate a special birthday.
Good selection of food choices.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I recently took my family here for a birthday celebration and we had a most wonderful experience! Food was great, service was remarkable, and the atmosphere was very nice and appealing. I will definitely come back!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a business event that grew a little bigger than originally planned and when I asked for a private room they had one available for no additional fee.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was good for heavy meat
It was good for heavy meat eaters. It is overwhelming for light eaters. It was well worth the money. I would go again. The wait staff was very nice and attentive. Adam did a great job welcoming us.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
over all we enjoyed our visit.
over all we enjoyed our visit. we could have had a better experience if it were a little more kid friendly. there was nothing on the menu for our daughter 9 yrs. so she had to just sit and wait. the price for a kid seems a little pricey since young kids usually don't eat that much.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Birthday Celebration!
We were seated at our reservation time. The wait staff was friendly and in formative. The meat selection was awesome, each hot and cooked to perfection.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was awesome, the meats & table rolls were very yummy but the desserts were NOT yummy at all! We bought 2 key lime pies (ate only one-tasted funny & just plain bad), a flan (tasted ok but was very soft) & the white cake (tasted OK) all to go. I guess most people don't order dessert bc they fill up on the meats.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great place! Very worth it.
Be prepared to eat good food. A big variety of salads, hot dishes and meat. All with a wonderful service.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was a first time and it
It was a first time and it was great. It was interesting to serve meats like you did it was almost like having a dinner show.
My 7 year old was in heaven.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
For the price, its alright
I went to this resturant because one of my friends suggested it and won't stop raving about the food. Me being the kind of person that loves a good resturant decided to go. I for one was not dissappointed with the food. Or the service
They give you your monies worth. This is the first resturant in a while that was on the expensive side that was 100% worth it. I'm going back again for a birthday party
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went here based on recommendations from some friends. Great recommendation! The food was fabulous and the service was great as well. Go hungry!!
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our server, Kimber, was excellent and made the dining experience simply outstanding. She kept up with everyone and the gauchos also were very attentive. Have ate at several restaurants of this type and always enjoy the evening. The Richmond, Va location has two to three times the items on the salad bar which makes for a festive dining ritual. Thanks for letting me review.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Having spoken to several friends that have actually been to Brazil, I learned that the place is very authentic, there were a few cuts of meat offered in Brazil that the U. S. will not allow but other than that it is as close as you will get this side of the equator.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thanksgiving dinner at a steak house! Small crowd, great food, and they accommodated the holiday with a touch of Thanksgiving sides. Will definitely be going back. Go with a big appetite!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, super friendly staff and very informative if you have never been there before. Made you feel at home, and the lighting was dim and very romantic.
