    It was pretty empty when we went in, the food was mediocre, service and drinks were as expected for a place that requires reservations. I would go back if I was invited but it was way too expensive for a mediocre experience.

    The food was exceptionally good! I am surprised that adults would still eat at a steak house when this option is available. Much better value, selection of different meats, and an exceptional cold bar with shrimp and authentic Brazilian sides.

    If you intend to clean and shut down everything and start cleaning at closing, don’t allow people to be seated at 9:15. I spent almost $200 on dinner last night and it was disappointing to watch employees around me cleaning making commotion, and the waitress asking if I could pay now so she could close out her register. Although the reservation said it was a 90 minute seating, all the commotion around me felt rushed to pay and leave. Drinks from the bar were great. Otherwise, the food was okay, it not up to the par of my other Brazilian steakhouse experiences. I definitely would not recommend going and I won’t be back.

    The overall experience was great. I would suggest having more sides for the meats such as sweet potato, baked potatoes and all the fixings, steamed broccoli, green beans, French fries, corn on the cob etc. that was the most disappointing part considering the price per person. The bacon wrapped chicken, the flank steak, the filet migon, were really delicious!

    I found the restaurant to be average at best. The staff was very helpful but not as knowledgeable as I would have hoped. We had spent $200 and I cannot say that I would ever eat back there again. It was more of a cafeteria style setting

    This us the second Brazilian Steakhouse I’ve been to. Food was good, but the first I went to had many more selections so this seemed lacking in variety. Also, the service was extremely slow. Her timing was terrible. She just had to take drink orders and pick up plates, yet it took forever to get drinks or to even get her attention to order. Flavor of meats was really good.

    We got seated in a location that seemed to be off the beaten path. As we were seated farthest from the kitchen we watched numerous times as people came around with food to other tables, that very same food never made it to us. In the beginning they asked for doneness preferences. There were probably about 2 times that the meat that was offered was medium rare. All the other times it was medium well or well done. I asked one of the people if they had a rarer option and they said they would be right back. They never came back. There were times that we sat and no one came to our table for 15 to 20 minute stretches. I've never been to a Brazilian steakhouse where I never once flipped my card to red. We even had one of the people bringing meat knock over my wife's water (which had a very gross flavor) all over the table and breaking her glass. All in all, I did not feel like we got what we paid for.
