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

  • "Our view was great! The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The meat was good, but not melt in your mouth, and a bit salty for me. Salad bar had a large variety and was well maintained. Quality was OK. I would go back when I need a meat fix, but the location isn't close to my area."

  • "The food was both over cooked and over salted. Compared to other such steakhouses this was a poor experience and can not be recommended."

  • "We all enjoyed the good and service. Had an excellent service from our waiter. Would definitely recommend and come again."

  • "A friend sent me a group-on for Samba so I figured I'd try it. Had it not been for the view and the samba dancers, they would have gotten a lower score. The food selection was ok but limited. I guess I've just been spoiled by what I've had at M Grill in LA. There is a reason most of these reviews mention GROUP ON. If I'd had to pay full price for this, I would have been VERY disappointed."

  • "Samba, the all-time favorite of my foodie family of 6. Unending delectable meats carved table-side until your stomach begs your to stop, although the eyes know what is store. Savory, flavorful beef, chicken, and fish roasted to perfection. A bar of sides with fresh salads, rices, main dishes, and home-made bread. There is something for everyone here. We go several times a year. It's the one restaurant everyone agrees upon! Friendly smiles, good music, and entertainment. Only Brazil itself could offer more…."

  • "The service was great, plus they have an amazing salad bar set up. The New York steak was the best of the beef. The servers were courteous and on top of things. The view is Outstanding!!,"

  • "I took my friend for her birthday and she was in awe from start to finish! When the dancers came out it was very unique for her and she was amazed! I have been here before so I already knew she would be overjoyed. As usual Samba did not falter."

  • "Samba Brazilian Steakhouse in Redondo Beach is a great place to go for a dinner. The choices of the endless offerings of bbq meats and poultry are delicious. Add to that a fantastic salad bar and you have a meal that will leave you smiling. Being right at the ocean it offers a great scenic view while dining."

  • "This was my first visit to Samba with my fiancee. The buffet food was actually pretty good, but you don't go to a Brazilian churrascaria for the buffet food, you come for the meat. Unfortunately, the BBQ selection, while decent, was all incredibly salty. The saltiest thing I ate all night though was the soup that was available in the buffet line. Being located right by the water does offer a great view though, especially while the sun is setting. Definitely a great place for special occasions and large groups."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The food was almost ok. Meat was often tough. Couldn't get over the dirty beer pub smell. Tables were messy due to the enamel, table mats could help! Bathrooms need serious attention. We were charged an automatic 18% gratuity, table of 4. They could upgrade Pandora so there are no advertisements.Would not recommend!"

  • "Food very good, service was worse I,ve ever had in all my dining experiences. Reservations at 5:30. We're seated right away on south side by windows, great table. Sat there for 10 minutes without anyone asking for drinks or even bringing a water. Flagged down a busboy and asked if he could get water, nothing. 5 more minutes got a waitress attention asked for water at least. 5 more and still nothing, after 20 minutes I walked back to hostes desk, there were 3people ther. Asked for someone to get us water and a drink order. She just said she would find a manager. Told her did not want manager just wanted a glass of water. After 25 minutes of just sitting finally got a glass of water."

We invited another couple and we had a blast! The Samba dancers made it an over-the-top experience. James' birthday celebration could not have been better!!!"

    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "We found the salad bar fair. The meat get brought to the table was decent but what ruined it for us was the horrific noise level when the put on their "show" which consisted of 2 scantily clothed dancers dancing their way through the restaurant while the music is so blasting that I could not speak to my husband without literally shouting. They do not serve meat while this show is going on so if you are in the middle of dinner no meat is served for 10-15 minutes."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "We have been g err many times before. The food is always good. Drinks watered down but this time what got me the most was how dirty the ladies restroom is. No toilet seat covers..3 stalls 2 where the doors don't close and water/liquid? On the floor. Will likely go back to Universal City one next time."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "The meats were excellent, some of the side dishes were not. The music was extremely loud to the point that I had to almost yell at my wife to have a conversation. Samba Dancers were a nice touch. All things considered the evening was enjoyable with the exception of the extreme volume of the ambiance music."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "I knew I was paying for ambiance, entertainment, location, and concept, so I expected the meat to be plentiful but passable. Instead, the meat was outstanding! I had several different cuts of beef, all requested rare, and they were meltingly, mouth-wateringly good.The pork ribs, sausages, the house special beef cut (something like picante, but I didn't quite catch the name), tri-tip, sirloin--all absolutely first-rate. The salad bar was nothing special, but I didn't come for salad! The dancers were very entertaining, willing to dance with a little girl, pose for a picture with my husband, and in general, good sports and fit! The view at sunset is spectacular. With 2 glasses of wine, tax, and tip, we spent exactly $100 for 2 people."

  • "They had a great variety....ribs and Top sirloin were among the best. VERY good service."

  • "Very bad A/C. Service was horrible, food was OK and the dancers were great! Only thing is that if one is seated by the corner of the dinning area there is little too see from that area. Dancers may come to that side but usually not. I was Very disaapointed. Server was friendly but not very attentive nor helpfup. Manager was somewhat helpful in raising the air (after my 4th request)"

There were no cheese balls but the the garlic bread was amazing! The sides are mediocre..except the chilli. Most of the meats were not well seasoned. Don't go with high expectations ."
