Was not able to get the meat service for all the meats after sitting at the table for 2 hours. Disappointing this time.

My pasta primavera was absolute GARBAGE. It was a big pile of mush. Worst pasta I have ever had. Terrible flavor, horrible presentation, chicken tasted like rubber, literally nothing good to say about it. I get that your restaurant is a meat based place but if you're going to have other menu options, your cooks should learn how to cook them correctly. If it's supposed to be a big pile of mush, then warn the customers and put that on the menu. Pasta primavera is the hardest pasta to screw up, but you guys certainly managed to do that. I gave it back to my server and she did nothing about it. Never coming back again.

We went here for the first time for my husband's birthday. The food was fantastic. The service was superb. It was an 90 mile drive for us, but the whole family cannot wait to return!

We are from Washington state and we found this restaurant in March 2016 through a friend recommendation. We were traveling through again and decided that it would be a fun experience for daughter and grand-daughters. It was they loved it. We will definitely be planning our trips through Sioux Falls again.

Waaaaaaay too expensive considering the food served was mediocre, at best. The flavor of the various types of meat and chicken were great once getting all of the fat out of the way. The brownie we shared for dessert was dry and lacked flavor.

As always, a wonderful evening. Always pleased with the service we receive from the gauchos, and very happy with the attentive service from Jared, our server. From the hostess station to exit, this is always a great place to eat. Some of the best food (if not the best food) in Sioux Falls currently. Keep up the great job!

Food was salty, as I had seen in the reviews. Lamb and salad bar were great...the other meats were OK. Pineapple was wonderful! Unless you are super super hungry, you won't get your money's worth!

The food is very good, service is great and the atmosphere is neat. The price is very expensive, so not an every day eating out place.

Great food and excellent service. Eaten here several times and have yet to be disappointed. Everyone one there goes out of their way to serve you.

Pricey, but worth it. Excellent Service! I know my glass was being refilled, but I saw her do it. It's like she was a waitress Ninja! We had a table of 10 and others said the same thing. She kept everyones glass full. To me that's a big PLUS!
My daughter (15) loved the Salmon. She will usually share with me, but she didn't this time (and it was a large salmon steak). She actually wanted seconds.
They cooked the lamb the right way, best lamb I've had in a long time. 4-6 different types of beef, all great, but 2 were AMAZING! Chicken Parm was excellent.
I also had their Brazilian dark beer, I forget what it was called, but I enjoy Ambers and Porters. It was very good, too.

I am diabetic, so I usually can't take advantage of the meat service. However, our guests always love it! I am glad to be able to order from the menu, but the price for the amount of food seems incongruous with what those who have any of the meat services get.

This time, it seemed like all the meat choices for meat service did not make it to our table. But the shrimp server was FANTASTIC!

I enjoyed the live classical guitar on Saturday evening.

Our grandson from near the Cities requested this restaurant to celebrate his 10th birthday, after introducing Carnival to him one year ago. The service is always outstanding and the grilled pineapple remains a family favorite. The flavorful food and atmosphere make the occasional splurge worth the cost.

We went here for a special outing. My son loved the food. I enjoyed all of it too especially the salad area. There is certainly something for everyone with the menu. We were hoping to come back and experience the menu instead of the main Brazilian cooked meats. The staff appeared to love what they were doing and they were all pleasant. Plenty of food- a little costly but worth the trip.

My son and I arrived early but no waiting for our reservation. The food and the service were great. We both left extremely satisfied.
