    The food here was pretty good and we definitely left stuffed. The service was great, the waiters brought each selection very quickly and I almost felt like I was in a race eating my food!

  • Gaucho's, great, server's, not so
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 7/14/2013
    The Gaucho's are always great. They try their best to get you the temp of meat you want. The server's, not so great. We actually had to flag down the manager. just to get an ice tea, that our server was way too busy to get, while she was getting drinks for two other tables. They just started serving bacon wrapped beef. It was good, but if they used the salty tri tip, or the garlic beef for that, it would be so much better.

    We were expecting a spectacular experience, especially being a holiday weekend. But when we arrived, we were surprised to see the restaurant nearly empty and even so, the service was less than expected. Our server was very friendly and courteous but we had to wait for drinks and other service items longer than would have been expected for an upscale restaurant like Rodizio. The meat selection also seemed to be lacking, with long gaps between the meat courses and several of the selections ending up to be very average. Overall, we probably wouldn't rush back, but the location is very unique and the concept is solid, just wish we would have had a better experience from a food and service perspective.

    This was the first time we had been here for lunch, and I was impressed to have such a wide selection on the salad bar and meat selections. The servers and meat options were plentiful, and we hardly had to wait before being offered something new. We had one misshap where a waiter knocked water into my lap. They were very efficient in moving us to another table, offering to pay for cleaning my purse, and took good care of us. They also compensated us with a free choice of dessert.

  • Ok for this type of restaurant
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 6/25/2013
    The meats were plentiful, but not as good as I've had at other brazilian steakhouses. My table had to wait a while for many of the options to come by - I had an empty plate for most of my dinner. It ended up taking a while to eat. Given the length of time I was sitting, there were at least 3 options I only saw once. There was a large group of around 20 near us. I observed an item I wanted go to their table full, that came out completely empty, or all that was left was fat and gristle. One of those items I never saw again. They didn't do a great job of 1) making sure our table got to try a little bit of everything (saw the grilled pineapple 12 times though), and 2) they didn't do a good job of picking up where they left off with options.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 6/25/2013
    For the type of ambiance and decor, a salad bar, the limited wait service (other than the bringing of meat), and quality of food, this restaurant is really, really overpriced. The wine list is apparently rarely used (we had to ask for it), it took a long time to receive the bottle (got it after our appetizer), server had never opened a bottle of wine, it was very expensive. The decor (tables, spacing, chairs) is completely incongruous with the pricing. My husband I had two fixed price dinners (which is the standard there) and a bottle of wine - with a standard tip, the bill was $130. The way the meat is served was fine, and it was pretty good, but everything else was sub-par, especially for the price.

    I love Brazilian grills and have been to many. Fogo De Chao outclasses Rodizio in every way. From the wine list, to the service, to the selection of meat, to the salad bar. The only thing that Rodizio does better is price, but you get what you pay for. We have not been to Rodizio since Fogo De Chao opened up, and we will never go again. We started going to Rodizio shortly after they opened in the mid 90's in Denver..

    We went for Fathers day and had an overall good experience. The service was amazing in the beginning, and started to slow as our server got busier. The food was good, lots of just beef....not cooked a lot of different ways. I have been there before with more meat selections.

    We had a great time on this visit to Rodizio. Our server, I believe her name was Erin, gave us good recommendations - I really enjoyed the limeade mixed with fresh mango juice, and was attentive without being smothering. The food was very good and came out at a good pace. There were enough people in the dining area that we weren't overwhelmed by the gauchos but not so many that it seemed crowded or too loud.

    Took my grandson here for his 16th birthday and for the first time he was too full for dessert. As we went early around 5pm the dining room was sparsely populated. The salad bars, both hot and cold, were fresh, full and delicious. Our server was both friendly and attentative, perhaps a bit too much, hate being called hon. The meat servers paid attention to the stop and go indicator and were quick to serve. Not sure but I don't believe that there were a dozen choices maybe eight. The pot roast was right up there with my grandmother's. We would definitely come back.

    so my wife and I were needing a date night, and she absolutely loves steak. I did my research wanting to try something new and I stumbled upon this restaurant. It was one of the most tasteful and fun experiences we have had dining.You get every kind of meat you can think of, not to mention their salad bar and carb bar. You definitely get your money worth and it is a fun but yet different dining experience. Will do this again, soon.

    We hadn't been to Rodizio in over 10 years and my wife decided she wanted to go there before we went to the theater. The service was very attentive with our primary waitress being very friendly and prompt. The meat selections seemed failrly limited for the price and a few of the choices were very bland and inconsistent between in the doneness and seasoning.

    This is a great place. Offers you the ability to try so many different tastes, and to get as much as you want of any that you prefer. The Gaucho's are great. Perfect for lunch or dinner, this is my favorite steak restaurant. Perfect for the hungry carnivore. I warn you though, come hungry or you will not be able to taste all of the courses if this is your first time. Salad Bar, great sides, and the cheese balls are outstanding. We look forward to many returns.

    I went to Rodizio for maybe the 20th time on Mother's Day. Unfortunately, this time is probably the last. The food was nothing other than disappointing. The atmosphere was loud and though the wait staff was nice, they were clearly understaffed. I was very disappointed in the entire experience. Sorry Rodizio.

    This was my first visit, although my wife had been there before. We went to celebrate our anniversary, knowing in advance it was expensive. We had great service, our waitress was very helpful, informative, very cheerful and accomodating, taking time to explain how the whole restaurant buffet worked, along with how the servers with the meat and skewers sort of just flittered about, making it to your table so long as you left the indicator green-side up and they'd stop when you turned it over, red-side up. Quite simple, unique, one of a kind system. We had a great evening, although I thought for the price we paid, it should have been a lot less din in the background, very noisey, but it wasn't the staff, it was the other customers.

    We have come many times for special occasions during lunch and dinner, but this was the worst experience we had. We never received the well done meat we requested due to a pregnant person at the table. We were passed quite a few times over for service. Your location was not that busy during the time of our visit. We are not sure we want to spend thst kind of money for such poor service.

    Dined on 5/5/2013
    Our reservation was for 1:30 and we were not seated until 2:00. The servers were running out of meat before getting to our table. I believe we were served 4 different types of meat. So we paid $18.99 for basically a salad bar. I have been to another Rodizio location which was 100 times better. I had family come in from out of town and wanted to impress them. I ended up looking like a fool. I would not recommend THIS Rodizio to anyone.

    I didn't intend to go for lunch but had to move our reservations up at the last minute. It was nearly 1/2 the price for dinner which was a nice surprise. I don't know if we had a lower caliber of meat choices at lunch, my husband was dissapointed he didn't get lamb. But, i was thrilled to try chicken heart along with the delicious sirloin. The service was a little slow but the ambiance was great and we parked right in front. Hope to come back soon and see how the dinner menu/service differs.
