A word from Samba Brazilian Steakhouse
From the moment you walk into Samba, you know for sure this isn't your father’s steakhouse! A dizzying array of sizzling, fire-roasted meats, ranging from Picanha (Brazilian beef sirloin) and tender pork loin, to savory sausages, chicken and lamb, are skewered, slowly roasted over an open flame and then expertly carved right at your table. And as if that wasn’t enough, the mouthwatering churrascaria feast won’t stop until you say so! We pair our succulent meats with an extensive buffet featuring salads, soups, and freshly prepared hot and cold side dishes. Churrascaria roughly translates from the Portuguese word for barbecue, and is a centuries old culinary tradition. At Samba, we honor the traditional rodi ⁄zio feast, while infusing it with new and unexpected tastes inspired by the pulse and energy of Brazilian culture. Our newly renovated space, perched on the edge of the ocean, is the perfect backdrop to our fabulous foods and inventive cocktails. Continued

  • "We had eaten Brazilian style once before so we weren't new to the concept. The meats were very good. Swordfish is fantastic. Their signature meat is superb - can't recall the name of it. The garlic bread is out of this world. Since not everything is for everybody - it doesn't matter that a couple of meats weren't very good as we simply told the server "no" when it came by again. It is a little disappointing they offered only one salad dressing. We didn't partake in the "buffet" too much as we were there for MEAT. If you are a meat lover - this is the place to eat. The view of the harbor is very relaxing - watching the people partake in various water sports is also a good time."

  • "This was my second time going and brought 2 new people with me. I loved the food and my guest said they would come back. I love the scenery right at the beach pier. I traveled from Ontario to come. Everything was excellence from the food that was seasoned to perfection to the ambience/ music and great service."

  • "I recommend the House Special, it's the best !!! The Buffet part for Sunday Brunch has gotten so much better, a lot more to choose from. I think the weekend is the best time to visit . My son went during the week and said it wasn't as good as when he went on the weekend."

  • "I think this restaurant is for a young clientele. I have never been in such a loud restaurant. Once the dancers came out it was unbearable (thank God I had earplugs or I would have left).... The meats, chicken and fish were very good and fresh. I felt some of the things in the salad bar weren't fresh. The waiters, etc. were very good. So my main complaint is that it was so loud and the salad bar wasn't fresh with some items. Seemed like other people were enjoying it....so it's really ones personal taste."

  • "Excellent restaurant. The ambiance was fantastic. Arrived at the restaurant a little after our appointment, but even though the booking was tight and we had to be rescheduled, we were seated within a relatively short period of time. The food and desserts were well prepared and delicious. The background music was up-to-date and very appropriate, and, the lovely samba dancers provided some added entertainment (though the intervals between performance could be shortened to 30 or 45 minutes)."

  • "THE RESTAURANT, THE FOOD, THE SERVICE, THE DANCERS, AND THE AMBIENCE WERE ALL GREAT! THE ONLY DOWNFALL WAS THE HEAT. IT WAS WAY TOO HOT IN THERE. JUST SITTING DOWN WAITING FOR OUR WAITER TO TAKE OUR ORDER MADE US SWEAT. OTHER THAN THAT... I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE."

  • "The only good part of our evening was being promptly seated at 8pm. 30 mins later, had only been offerred toasted garlic bread and chicken. Supposedly, there are numerous meat choices, but by 9pm, we were advised the "grill" would be closing, after having sampled only about 4 meat offerings. Disappointing meal!"

  • "*This is NOT a fancy place...decor looked ancient and tacky. *The service was prompt and courteous. Service was good. *The quality of food was not great. A lot of meat were tough and overcooked in my opinion (but I like my meat rare). I really liked the tri-tip though! It was tender and juicy. But if you come here, be prepared to sample a LOT of meat. *The salad bar was smaller than anticipated, but had an eclectic selection. Kale Salad was great and refreshing after all that meat. *I love the marina where it is located. Great place by the ocean to take a walk after stuffing yourself full of meat."

  • "There were a total of 4 hostesses and none had a clue on what they were doing. After checking in for our reservation we were told there was a wait. We waited for 40min. They were rude, snobby, and uncoordinated. The gave our table away to a walking in couple because they forgot to check us in. And when I brought it up to their attention they were rude and still didn't give me a wait time. The only highlight was our waiter who when heard that my mom had acquired a migraine due to the heat in the restaurant, was kind enough to bring some aleve from the first kit for her."

  • "It's my first time to eat at Samba and I brought ER for his birthday treat. We were seated promptly as we arrived for our reservations through Open Table. Place has a nice view and not much people for an early dinner. Our server Silvia introduced us to Samba's concept of dining, though I really know it works. It is just amazing that Silvia was enthusiastic explaining how it goes. The buffet of sides was ok, cheese bread was like cheese with a dough to me, too much cheese. Salads were ok, no plantains though. Then comes the meat....a hit and miss. Sirloin was good, picanha was ok at first serve but tough on the second. Lamb was ok but not the bacon wrapped turkey for me. Try the place and use a coupon! :-)"

  • "This was my first time at Samba. Honestly the food was good but we've had better at other Brazilian BBQ spots but the service was 2nd to none. From the time we sat down we had the attention of our waitress and the food just kept flowing. Even though the restaurant filled to capacity within minutes of us arriving they didn't miss a beat. Great job on a busy Friday evening!"

  • "A party of four of us, went and started out the evening with carpiuhanas ( don't know the spelling)- the special Brazilian drinks during Happy Hour . Great drinks (some sweeter than others). Salad bar was plentiful, but of course the main event is the Meat ! Juicy , well seasoned ( I ordered A-1 Sauce ,but didn't need it) for the steaks. The variety of the meats was great (including shark). Two of indulged in the dessert tray, I was too full. Missed the dance show(but I've seen them on different day)-it's fun too. I'll be back. Always have a great time."

  • "Not worth the $$. Meat tended to be overcooked, so dry and tough. No plantains or yucca. The salad bar was not very appealing and the few things I tried did not taste good. The best items were the oranges, the garlic bread, mashed potatoes, rice and garlic beef. The waiter was nice but the hostess, not so much. Very nice view of the ocean if you want to pay $35 per person for a nice view."
