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.

    Boyfriend took my for birthday dinner here. Great meats. The fish was very delicate and savory, my favorite. Complimentary dessert was delicious. And service was greag. We will definitely be telling our friends and family about this restaurant yet we live an hour and 20 min away. Well Worth the drive though.

    Made reservation for 5 and got seated at a 2-4 person table. Our elbows kept hitting and we were very tight in the spot , we had to ask to be moved 4 times before they moved us. Food was good although they say they have 16 types of meat going around and we only were able to taste 8 . Would have loved to try them all because the 8 we had were delicious. PS: salad bar options are amazingly good and there is a huge variety . Kid friendly place. Good place for a group to eat for an hour or so . I don't recommend the sunset pitcher drink ( all crushed ice and no drink actual drink)

    May not be gourmet food but for its location and awesome views of the ocean and the pier, it's definitely worth a visit. Sunset is amazing and the bottomless drinks at brunch make it a great place to go

    Oh my gosh we were so pleasantly suprised with the this place. Location was top notch, the service was impressive and fun. We had margarita's and sangria and the were both made very well. Happy hour Monday to Friday 5-7 $5 drinks. The salad bar has a nice variety to choose from. The Samba dancers came out at 7:30 and were fun however They Need To Lose Their Wings as they hit people for long periods of time causing customers to dodge them and stop eating or drinking which may upset people

    Food wasnt great. Meats were salty. First real meat we got was super tough. Tri tip is not suppose to be tough at all but theirs was. Second tine it came out it was better but it shouldn't have been like that the first time. When dancers came out the ligting was to flashy couldnt really see because it was to bright. They brought the different meats out fairly often but i was not impressed wiyh quality at all.

    The Sunday brunch was disappointing. Not much variety in food choices. Salads didn't appear freshly prepared. Some food was dried out as if it had been sitting out for a while. although, the mimosa was included in the price of the brunch, I was surprised to see an additional charge for a non-alcoholic drink request for a guest in my party who was 8 months pregnant. Basically, the brunch is overpriced. You're just paying for the nice view.

    We had to change our reservation= no problem! When we arrived we were promptly seated and the menu explained. The waiter brought us the signature drinks, which were tasty lots of lime although not sure they had ANY alcohol! the music is so loud its hard to have conversations across the table. Other than that the food was great.

    I've been here a few times, but this time the service was bad. I was taking a group of friends there for their first time experience and they were not impressed. I recommended them to go there but with the waitress literally disappeared on us they did not have a very good experience. The food like always was good.

    We came in on a Tuesday early and it was not crowded. The waiter was very attentive and did not rush us at all. When we explained that we did not know the "procedure" he politely explained how everything came together - the salad the meats, the drinks, etc. it was near sunset and the view was phenominal!!! We enjoyed a leisurely wonderful meal and would return enthusiastically.

    This is a fun restaurant - and brong your appetite because you're going to want to sample all the various roasted meats that come to your table. Later in the evening you also get a dance show complete sith Brazilian music, lights and dancers! I have been to this location several times and to the Universal location a few times. It's a lot of food even if you take small portions because it keeps coming and you don't want to miss a flavorful meat. Everyone's favorite seems to be the picanha so sample that if you decide to try Samba.
