Service was very slow. We didn’t get a chance to try all of the advertised meats. Servers would sporadically come by to bring food. We were left very disappointed with the service that we received. The food that we did get to get was seasoned well. Just wish we would have had a chance to try all that was advertised.

Excellent service. Salad bar was very full of delicious choices. The Gauchos who serve the various selections of meats were very professional and listened to what u requested.
The Meats were excellent and perfectly seasoned. I have been a repeat customer and am never disappointed. Go and have a great time.

Excellent service from the moment we walked in the door!! Our server was attentive and was not obtrusive. Drinks refilled, the meats continued to circulate the entire time. If we wanted a particular meat, we asked our server and minutes later that choice arrived! The manager even came by to check on our experience which was outstanding! We were from out of town and gifted this experience which was Excellent overall! We have this type of restaurant in our city but it doesn't even compare to this restaurant!!

The food and service was amazing! It was a great night out. The only negative aspect was the bill. We booked at 5 to get the early bird special. When the bill came we were charged regular full price. They said you had to ask for that special. No where on the website did it state that. They did fix the bill, but be aware and check you bill if you want the early bird special.

For the price, it was honestly quite lackluster. The service was the spotlight of the entire experience. Our server was helpful, and let us know exactly what we needed to know going in. This was my father and I's first time trying a Brazilian steakhouse, and this was not a good first impression, The best part of the food was the salad bar, honestly. The selection of vegetables and cold salads were great, along with incredibly fresh produce. I would easily pay for just the cold bar next time. But when it comes to the meats, I was thoroughly disappointed. Everything had an off taste that didn't seem to sit well in my stomach, along with most of the meats tasting quite old. The biggest offender tot his was the chicken leg. It had a real strong chicken taste, in all the wrong ways. The sirloin was alright, but the bacon wrapped sirloin had a rather soapy taste to it. The other meats were sub par at best. Ironically enough, the best thing they brought to the table was the pineapple. The cinnamon paired well with the sweet pineapple, making it the best part of the hot foods. So, to summarize, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone looking for a good piece of meat. But if they like a good salad, then I know where to send them.

4 stars overall. It’s a great time if you know what you’re getting yourself into and you’re ok with it. It was $110 after tip for two people, and we didn’t get drinks. The food is pretty good, and the meat was also decent. Depending on how much you eat it can be very worth it, it’s just spendy.

Service could have been better. The gentleman serving the meat did a great job, the lady taking care of the table didn’t. Most of the food was overcooked. Well done steak is horrible. Definitely not worth the price you pay to eat there. Which may explain why there were only a few people in there.

Meat and salad bar were very good. Ambience was like a cafeteria. Dirty plates could have been cleaned off. Hot bar rather sparce. Will not go back for the price. Could have a nice steak at a nice restaurant for same $$.

My wife took me here for an anniversary dinner and it was a lot of fun. Reservations were easy to make. Parking was easy. The staff was attentive and very sweet. The food was wonderful. The salad bar was full and clean as well as the hot bar. At a Brazilian steakhouse they have skewers of meat they bring out and give small “pieces” to try different things but you can eat until you are full.

I would consider it pricey but worth the experience. It was quiet, well lit, and fun. I look forward to going back but admittedly it’s not a restaurant you go to all the time, or at least I can’t haha.

Where do I start? Table was not ready. Buffet was meager. Only 4 items on the hotbar and they were not good. All of the meat, chicken, steak, lamb tasted the same and was over cooked. Service was terrible. My drink was empty for 20 minutes. I had to go to the hostess station several times to get service. Lastly this terrible experience was way overpriced. I wouldn't recommend it to my ex-wife.

1st of all we were bombarded when entering by the staff. Were told we have to have facemask on to walk to table. Waitress was a little lacking in serving. Cheese rolls were hard as a rock. Waitress never gave us a small plate for our meats. We had to put meat with our salad bar plates. One of the meat servers finally went and got us small plates. Never seen more than 6 different types of meats including the pineapple. As we finished our salad plates they were never removed from table so when you went again you had another stack. Waitress tried charging 5 adult meal prices when 2 were only salad bar and one was an 11 yr. Old. After 3 tries she finally got it right. We come there several times a year and this by far was the worse. I should have left after being bombarded by 3 hostess as soon as you walk in about masks. We were all vaccinated!!!!
