A word from The Grill From Ipanema
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.

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary at The Grill From Ipanema. We went for Rodizio; the salad bar was excellent (don't eat too much though) and the selection of meats was varied and all excellent with the service being friendly and excellent as well."

  • "We used a Groupon offer to try this restaurant. The Rodizio-style of service is novel and the flavors are superb. There is a wide variety of great foods at the cold table (salad bar). We will be back."

  • "Great meats but expensive. The wait staff was very helpful and explained each selection as they were brought to the table. The salad bar was one of the bests that I have ever seen. I would definitely go back."

  • "Food was very good,, waiter was good. Receptionist was a bit short, we were there about 20 minutes early for our 5pm dinner reservvation and we were not seated at our table until 5:05. We were the first ones to be seated and since my dad was in a wheelchair she suggested that we sit at the first table in the dinning room. There were tons of window seats but she kept on insisting that this was best for us. We would have preferred a window seat I guess if your in a wheelchair that is out of the questions."

  • "Went for our 26th wedding anniversary and our server was helpful and generous. Used our groupon and wasn't treated like trailer park trash. Our server let us switch tables to a widow table and we were able to watch the sun set over the Olympic mountains while we ate endless meat. Great salad bar too. Great place for a special occasion."

  • "While our waitress, Carmen, was perfectly pleasant and accommodating, that's about where the excellence stopped for us at the Grill from Ipanema. The restaurant was way too hot (sweltering) to be enjoyable for an evening dinner and my companion and I sweated our way through our meal. The food was hit-and-miss. Our favorite was the cheese steak, but some of the other items were so dry, they were inedible. The caipirinhas were delicious, but they were served in short glasses, had barely any liquid in them (three slurps and the drink was gone); I counted nine lime wedges in my tiny glass. Between the sweaty, uncomfortable ambience, the stingy drinks, and the cooked-to-death ribs/chicken, we left after 40 min. I won't be back."

  • "I'm always a big fan of Brazilian Steakhouses and this Grill's full rodizio dinner certainly lives up. All the meats were delicious and beautifully cooked, they had a great variety, and the salad bar was lovely as well. Great dining experience!"

  • "My husband and I made a reservation because it's a 3 hr. drive to this restaurant from our home. We learned we c/should've called ahead to ask if any meats/entrees were unavailable/sold out. Disappointingly, we had to order some items other than what we would've liked to have tried because "there was a big party the night before so many meats were sold out/unavailable." How were we supposed to know to check ahead? We enjoyed our dining experience but would've preferred trying meats/entrees of our first choosing."

  • "I was not impress with the food. I have been to a Brazilian restaurant in Chicago and the best experience. I told my friends about it; so I wanted to eat at this one. I was so disappointed that I couldn't eat the food; steak very dry and chewy. I would never go back to this restaurant; they say there are 17 choices; but we might have gotten four. My guest kept saying where are the 17 choices."

  • "The Grill at Impanema has great food and fantastic staff. They were very helpful explaining the best choices for food and why. Very knowledgeable about the menu. Food was great. I would recommend lunch time as the prices go up quite a bit after 2pm. Kids prices are awesome. My 9 year old ate all she wanted for $8. Would for sure go again!"

  • "This visit was as great as usual--unlike the last one. This confirmed to me that this place has great quality and selection as long as you come during prime dinner hour."

  • "My close friends and I deeply mourned the closing of Ipanema on First Avenue. It was our special occasion destination for many years, and the other churrascarias that have opened since have been somewhat disappointing. The Grill from Ipanema however, does not disappoint. The salad bar is deep and varied without being overwhelming with minor variations for the sake of variation, but of course, it's the meats that are the true test. The quality during all of my visits has been excellent. Perfect cooking, seasoning, and presentation. If the passadoros arrive too frequently then cuts grow cold before you can enjoy them. If too rarely, then the wonderful sense of bounty is diminished. These passadoros arrive just when you want them to."

  • "Great service and food was good. Really enjoyed the whole experience. Expensive but worth it."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The food was excellent, we did the full package. The only recommendations would be to have options on temperature. All meet is medium rare to rare and my wife is more of a medium well person. Also, there are 17 cuts of meat but no list so you don't know if you have tried everything and if you are missing a few, you don't know what you are missing. The service started out good for us. We arrived at 6 and it was full but not crowded. They came by with meat every few minutes. As the evening progressed they got more crowded and suddenly we weren't seeing service but every 15 minutes and our waiter all but abandoned us. We had a Groupon for $60 and after tip we still paid out $70 for 2 people so plan accordingly."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The food was great! I know that $24.95 for lunch seems like a lot, but it's $21 for the salad bar...why not add $3.95 and get unlimited meat as well! The meat was wonderful! The salad bar was wonderful and every time we went back there were new dishes out. Lots of veggies! We will definitely come back!!!"

  • "For $100+ I'd expect better quality and tasting food"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Not sure if they were understaffed and had all new kitchen staff - but when the steaks eventually made it around the meat was fatty or bland. At $50/plate I estimate each little slice of meat cost $8. After tip, I calculate my server made $4 each time she filled my water glass. The atmosphere is bizarre. It was like the love child born from a night of passion between a Rainforest Cafe and a Denny's. Skip this place and go to Daniels broiler or the met"

  • "my wife and I visited in Ipanema on my birthday.we found that the salad bar was great and the service was great it was also very enjoyable to have the meat served on a skewer especially enjoyed enjoyed the grilled shrimp, the lamb, the peppered steak and the filet mignon. Oh yes my wife also enjoyed the mushrooms from the salad bar but they ran out. It was a very enjoyable dining experience."

  • "Great interior. Immediately greeted and told about amazing Brazilian rum. Menu was explained well, but we knew what we wanted...rodizio! Great salad bar...absolutely not just a salad bar. Had some amazing food...could be an entree on it's own. And they do offer that. Dessert cart, yes! Awesome place. Can be a busy spot so service can be as slow at times. But all around, A plus!"

  • "there was a very large salad bar, we did not have it but just walking by it looked like it had a large variety of food, not just lettuce type salad but any you can imagine. We had the coconut shrimp and the a rib-eye steak, all good very nicely and the way it was ordered. Did not have the all you could eat meat entree but it all looked very good and they were around filling the customers plates often and with plenty."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The meat is over salted, but the salad bar is pretty good. I've heard restaurants over salt things to get you to buy more drinks. Not kid friendly since 2 out of 3 highchairs had broken safety belt buckles and it took over 20 minutes to find one. Our waiter was nice though. that wasn't broken."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "This was such a good place to have a late night dinner! My best advice is to go there hungry.. You will leave stuffed! The staff was very friendly and welcoming! We actually arrived 30 minutes later than our reservation and we were still accommodated. Thank you!!"

  • "2hrs dining, didn't recall carvers offering 17 selections of meat/chicken to us. Want more meat or more generous slices?! Just ASK and they were than happy to accommodate us. Got seated at 7pm, Friday, beautiful weather!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The food was awesome, you had better arrive hungry since there is lots of great choices. The salad bar alone would make a great meal, but save room for all the meats they bring around."

  • "This is the third Brazilian steakhouse I've been to, and it did not disappoint. Every cut of meat is just about the best you'll ever taste! It is pricey, but it's worth it as a rare treat for a special occasion. To save money, go to lunch instead of supper."
