A word from The Grill From Ipanema
AUTHENTIC BRAZILIAN STEAKHOUSE
The Grill From Ipanema in Seattle is all about Rodízio, a popular Brazilian style of enjoying dinner among friends and a truly unique dining experience. Rodízio offers a wide variety of different cuts of grilled meats slowly roasted in specially designed charcoal grills. Served continuously by "passadores" or "gauchos" with food brought on skewers or carved to order tableside, servers make their rounds until guests can’t take another bite. Dining at The Grill From Ipanema also includes unlimited visits to the "mesa de frios" (cold table) for an array of cold cuts, cheeses, and exotic Brazilian specialties.

    It was an amazing placenter for dinner. Good view, great service. My only complaint is that they won't divide the bill amongst a group. If you go in a group pay cash.

    Any meat eater would be in paradise for all 17 of the most flavorable meats in Seattle (maybe on Earth). And not to be overlooked, the salad bar has everything that a non-meat eater would want, and it is all fresh and very tasty. Lastly, you can't leave without a glass (or 2, or 3) of Caipirinha.

    This is the second Brazilian steakhouse I've been to; the first in Vegas. This one beats Vegas. The server was awesome, the food was great and I wasn't left with the feeling that they wanted to have people sitting so closed together. I would eat here again.

    I travel extensively and have eaten Brazilian food all over the country and this in fact for me was the unpleasant experience I have ever had. I went for lunch and everyone that told me to go here was quite taken back when I told them of my visit. Most apologized but there was no apology needed I just had a bad experience that day I may or may not try them again. Lunch should have stated that it had a lesser amount of food offered so I would have stuck with dinner because I had a dinner time reservation to.

    It's like disney land for a carnivore. Prices have gone up a lot in the last 2 or 3 years at all of the brazilian steak places, but it's still filling and enjoyable. Onc draw back is they don't ask whether you want a more well done piece, medium rare, rare etc. At the brazilian steak place in factoria in Bellevue, they usually ask if you want a rare, medium, or well done piece.

    What a lovely and different venue. The superb service is highlighted by traveling waiters with up to 17 varieties of meats on a skewer which is cut at your table. The salad bar is to die for, one cannot get to all of the choices in one meal. Good food and earthy ambience.

    We always enjoy visiting The Grill From Ipanema and tonight was no exception. The food is spectacular and we loved trying all of the different meat selections. I really enjoyed the salad bar with the many selections and healthy foods. The tables are situated in a way you can have a romantic time together or enjoy chatting with your neighboring table. The waiters serving the meats were so hospitable and friendly.

    The food is wonderful, especially the Parmesan pork and the house special sirloin. And that grilled pineapple! Drink and dessert service was very slow when we went (lunch), although this is not a meal to hurry through. Also the wrong capirinha, though it was tasty anyway. I hope this was just a hiccup with new staff. We'd certainly go again.

    Took a good friend and his wife here for his birthday. We had a great time, the food was great and the service was excellent. The salad/entree bar had some great choices and the numerous servers brought many varieties of meat to our table. Everything was cooked and seasoned well and kept coming at a pace that kept everyone's plate as full as you would want. If you are a meat lover, this is definitely a place to check out. Great dining with a lively atmosphere and friendly servers.

    Carnivore heaven to be sure ! Weekend lunch is a wonderful way to be introduced to Rodizo style eating,though I highly recommend a reservation and go when they open . This is a fabulous place to take vegetarian friends also as the salad bar has the most variety I have ever seen . The display is a work of art!

    My daughter and I had an absolutely delightful meal recently at the Grill from Ipanema. Food and service was impeccable without being stuffy or pretentious. Rodizio was superb, as was the salad bar. Top-quality, fresh ingredients, unique presentation of the meats. Very memorable meal, will definitely be back. Not inexpensive but great for special occasion.

    It was a fun experience. I have been to many fine steak houses and even the best cut of meat gets a little boring towards the end, not the case with your establishment. The timing of the various meat arrivals was just right, you eat a couple of bits, have a little bit of conversation and the then do it again.

    We just love Grill from Ipanema. We found it through Groupon and have been back several times since. What is long and lean and lovely are the wonderful spits of steaks and chicken and even grilled pineapple. We save our appetites for a couple of days before so we can fully enjoy all the meat and sumptuous buffet choices. The view of the sunset over Puget Sound is amazing. The servers are friendly and very cute (buff). Vegans...stay home.

    Enjoyed the personable service. We were seated quickly and got our salad plates straight away. The minor issue was that the drinks were slow in arriving and they missed my request for a second one. But that is a small thing compared with the food. Their menu has a good selection to choose from and it was all at a good price. It would be a good walk from the Market, it's a hike from the Ferry Dock so think Cab when you arrive.

    Like most Brazilian steak houses, the meat takes center stage here. We found all of the meat choices to be cooked well and tasty. The salad/buffet bar was adequate, but nothing special. The service was very good, and the wait staff were very attentive and helpful. I've eaten at many other Brazilian steak houses and found this one to be good, but not great.

    I'm not a restaurant critic.. I hope this is the only negative review I write! I wouldn't recommend The Grill from Impanena to anyone!! The salad bar was extremely questionable. The servers seemed grouchy when coming around to serve the steak.. Yikes!! Not to mention I could hardly hear what they were presenting. the steak was decent, but not nearly as good as other Brazillian steakhouses, and it is all cooked to med/med plus you don't even get offered a choice of what piece you eat. Not worth the money, or dining in a downer atmosphere. Two thumbs all the way down. I'll be keeping my Brazilian Steakhouse dining to Novilhos.

    It was second time at the restaurant and my visit was less enjoyable this time. The food wasn't as good and as fresh as last time I was there. Also, I asked the person who was serving meat " can I please have another piece of meat due to the one served being just a piece of fat?” ..I was stunned by his answer: “o, I cannot do that, you have wait for another round”. Wow… for $25 a person I should be able to get what I want and as much as I would like… That was a very poor service for an upscale restaurant who would like customers return and tell others about the place. Salad bar did not have as much variety as last time I was there.

    Wonderful ambiance greets you as you enter and then you notice the water wall on the left and the awesome array and selections of antipasto and creative salads on the right. Ah, all the meats were tender as we three made our selections from the wandering gauchos who came to our table. The parmesan encrusted pork was one friend's favorite. Mine was the bacon wrapped beef. Other friend liked everything. Grilled pineapple refreshes the palate between meat selections. My hard-to-please restaurant friend said afterwards, "This is the place I am taking my brother on his next visit to Seattle. His brother is a world traveler and a connoisseur of fine dining. Score: a perfect 10!

    This is a Mecca for those that love grilled meat and a salad bar, in an comfortable setting. The service staff, and atmosphere, is inviting, and friendly. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for a date night, craving for well prepared food, or simple family get together. I personally will be returning with my friends, not only for sharing a meal in a good restaurant, but for the restaurant itself.

    You need to be hungry to eat at The Grill. The meats are abundant and good. The salad bar is also extensive and good. The restaurant's ambience is very nice and in a good location. The only negative was I found the service to be slow. When we first sat down we ordered drinks. It took almost 20 minutes for them to reach our table; we had already started to eat our dinner. Our server was also missing in action a good deal of the evening.

    Rodizio style serving is always entertaining for everyone at the table. The Grill From Ipanema also has a tremendous salad bar that will keep the "rabbits" in your party delighted. I don't think I'd want to visit this restaurant often, though. It's more for the reasons of novelty one dines here than the food... not that the food was bad, just that it wasn't GREAT.
