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.

    I couldnt help compairing my previous experience with FogoDeCho and our brunch here. The gauchos arent Brazilian or costumed, which was different from FDC. The salad bar was smaller, with less artistic displays. Now for the good..... First, the food was phenominal. Salad bar was stocked with top quality ingredients. Meats flavorful and tender. Wasnt aware that lunch menu didnt feature all 18 meats....that too was different. But what we had was fabulous and sufficient. The manager was attentive and made us feel very welcome, stopping by often to make sure we were comfortable. Overall, food was equal to my other experiences, but more of a casual atmosphere. We will return often!

    Took the wife and kids for lunch. The kids really enjoy the various selections of meat and the big "more than just salad" bar. We will be coming back sometime, but only on a Groupon deal as it can get pretty pricey for a family of four.

    Dined on 8/16/2014
    We came here with empty stomach and still came out of the restaurant with an impending food coma. I think I heard the waiter said there was 19 different meats to try, and on top of that there was the buffet and the dessert cart. The waiter didn't really know much about the wines, but at least he knew what the most popular was. I greatly recommend this restaurant. Keep a look out for the Groupon, because The Grill can be quite expensive.

    My wife and I treated ourselves to a rare night out sans kids and Ipanema Grill was the escape we needed. We had the rodizio and salad bar. The servings of grilled meats were tender, succulent and seasoned wonderfully. Nearly each piece was delightful and certainly every bite was a fun exploration of taste and texture. We sampled everything from filet mignon to lamb to bacon wrapped steak. The salad bar alone was an amazing selection of grilled and marinated items. Asparagus, mushrooms, olives, artichokes, haricot verts and so much more. Few restaurants are capable of offering such variety and quality. The service was warm and responsive. Our server, Rodrigo, was charming and attentive. The dining room offers lovely mountainviews.

    Went for the first time not knowing what to expect. When I was told that there were 17 meats on rotation my heart skipped a beat. Lets start with the salad bar, this is not your applebees salad bar! Ranging from steak in gravy sauce to caramelized apples you could get fat just off the salad bar and be extremely happy with how it all tasted. I made it a point to try as many of the 17 meats on rotation as I possibly could and in the process found my favorite that tasted amazing. For dessert we got the Dulce de leche crepe which I had to fight my girlfriend over... she won. I WIILL be back again as this was one delicious experience I wont forget anytime soon!

    The bartender was awesome, my wife and I sat in the bar for happy hour before our 6:15 reservations, the drinks were delicious. The hostess was great, but the waitress was a bit impersonal. My wife and I ordered the rib eye, hers was overcooked, but mine was fine, although I like medium well. This place might be great for some, but we will not return.

    Wonderful place for something different! We had the rodizio grill where we chose from an amazing unlimited salad bar and then what seemed like an unending selection of meats are brought to the table. The quality of the food was phenomenal and the whole rodizio style made for an excellent dining experience. It was quite warm though due to large west facing windows and they didn't seem to have aircon. Would be perfect in cooler weather.

It had unlimited salad and sides buffet as well as unlimited table service of carved meats. I will absolutely go back if I find my self in belltown.

    if you are a meat lover, this place is for you. We enjoyed ourselves and the food was wonderful, however the waiter charged us more than the list price for our drinks and the window seat with the view was to hot and uncomfortable. Our ice melted really quick and we were uncomfortably hot in the restaurant. They need to get air conditioning. It was to hot in there for us to really enjoy ourselves.

    I did not have a nice experience at the new Ipanema. The meat was at room temperature and EVERYTHING was completely undercooked. Also, the place was so hot! It seems there was no air conditioning inside... Not nice sweat while you eat. I will definitively not go back, it is not worthy! I was expecting to have a nice dinner, but I left very disappointed...

    I was a bit skeptic about how good this place could be. I mean, you can only eat so much meat right? WRONG! The variety and the flavor of their food is unbelievable! Add their amazing salad bar and you can't go wrong!if your unsure try their lunch menu as it is way cheaper.

    Went with a groupon. Food was Good, Service was very good. Colorful and vibrant atmosphere. Only downfall is it was a little pricey to take older kids for a "regular meal". $220 for a family of 4 to eat qualifies as more of a special occasion. But its an amazing experience

    The concept is amazing. The service of the meat was wonderful. The side bar incredible. Unfortunately the service was terrible. The two that ordered off the menu got their food very slowly and one dinner was delivered almost when everyone else was finished. Our server was attentive when he took our order then nonexistent. So sad, it ruined a birthday dinner.

    First to arrive for lunch, so salad bar, which has a great variety of choices, had not been picked over and got the first cuts of meat right off grill. Dining area was open with a lot of light. Staff explained procedure well, in case you have not been to a restaurant that serves in this Brazilian style. This was our first time there, but will probably return and bring friends to enjoy this unique dining experience.

    Our experience was better than we might have expected. It was our 1st time to the "Grill." The expected "star" was the meat entries and they were excellent with great variety. The waiters came around with their servings often enough to keep us very interested but not overwhelmed. I would highly recommend it---especially for the "meat foodies". My wife would have preferred at least one green salad choice without any peppers or tomato base. The sirloin tri-tips and the parmesian pork were highlights. The broiled shrimp were a nice surprise. We will definitely be back here again---with our sons-in-law.

    We started off at happy hour, sitting right at the bar. They have a very reasonable happy hour menu and the bartender was friendly and extremely accomodating. Our table was wonderful, our service was excellent, and I found the food to be awesome, if not a tad salty. The Rodizio is the way to go. Expecting the cold bar buffet to have only cold items, I was pleasantly surprised to find it included hot soups and other hot items. This was a big plus. The Manager visited tables to ensure everyone was enjoying their meal. All servers interacted so nicely with their specific tables. The atmosphere is beautiful, the music/drinks transported me and it was a truly excellent meal in all regards.

    This was my second visit to this restaurant and can say that the quality of food is consistently excellent. The variety of cuts is broader than other steakhouses I have dined at in the Seattle area. This visit was to celebrate my birthday and the level of service exceeded my expectations! Many thanks for making a milestone that much more enjoyable. I highly recommend visiting Impanema.

The service is awesome, they are very nice, if you tell them you are waiting for a certain cut of meat to come around they make sure to send it to your table ASAP. We love it, we've been here for a date, for birthday celebrations and to share with family guests. Everybody leaves with a full tummy and happy.
