Booked a bar spot online, we just wanted to get some drinks. When we arrived they told us we shouldn't have booked online, because they don't offer bar reservations at the moment. Every single table was full, there were people all over the buffet. Clearly not respecting the 25% capacity rule. We left right away because we felt so uncomfortable. Felt like COVID didn't exist in this restaurant. No precautions were being taken. Hope there's not an outbreak there.

Let’s start with where the table was placed. We were sat right in the middle where everyone made a line to go to the salad bar. .. we had people practically next to us the entire night. The meats didn’t come or somehow they missed us.

The waiter had the new machine to pay our bill, he went to threw the screens himself. It felt awkward when he asked if 20% tip was good. I felt we were placed on the spot, we always tip 20% and had planned to do so but it’s never comfortable when the waiter asks.

We had always had great service here, we were terribly disappointed. I don’t believe we will be coming back.

Was only offered garlic pork after saying more than 10 times I didn’t want anything with garlic. Asked for lamb chops and they were brought to another table. For the first time ever, every piece of steak I was brought was very dry and underseasoned. I was very surprised, as this location usually has amazing steak and great service.

We visited to enjoy the lamb chops and they didn’t taste or smell good at all. They tasted like that had been frozen for too long. We didn’t make note of this to our waiter and the manager that stoped by and asked about our experience.

We had a party of 6 for Valentine’s Day. It was very crowded and loud which was not a problem. A few disappointments were that we didn’t have servers with meat come visit our table often and buffet line was long since you have to wait for an attendant accompany you. I received a email stating if we dined on Valentine’s Day we would get a $25 gift certificate and no one knew about this. Just a few wrinkles in the evening.

With COVID, certain allowances must be made, however, It was Valentine's Day and the place was packed. My husband and I are elderly. We were worried the entire time we were there.
Reservations should have been staggered better, larger are for social distancing, create a way for us to sit in our car until our reservation is ready. Please be more creative with these options.
My husband and I really enjoy the Rosemont location and this was our first time here. We'll stick with that location.
I'll recommend this location with caution.

This was the first place we’ve dined in at in over a year and sadly I left feeling underwhelmed and over exposed.
The Covid protocol’s and new process wasn’t explained to us by our server.
We had a personal attendant at the salad bar but there was no organization/ person who was making sure people were keeping a safe distance from one another (let alone their attendant).
At one point there was a line of people that were standing in the middle of the dining room.
People were walking around without masks on & no one was correcting them.
I feel ultimately bad for the employees, who are clearly trying their best but aren’t being protected from the many customers they interact with.
They should’ve spaced out the reservations more to give them more time to explain things & try to keep things a little safer.

Second time I have been to this location. Both times sat in back. It won’t be a big deal but the severs hardly come back there. I shouldn’t have to ask the main service constantly to get food. That’s not the point of this experience. Not sure if I will be back anytime soon. You have competition in the same environment that you have and I have never experienced that elsewhere. You think with hard times your business operations would be client centric. But I guess not.

It was my birthday the food was really good but the service could’ve been better. I had to constantly ask for Mashed potatoes they took so long to get. Also when my pop ran out they took a while to give me another.

Disappointed in new set up with salad bar. No not being able to flip if I want meat or not. Probably will not five there anymore. Not worth it since it used to be about the experience too snd it’s all changed.

I was very disappointed with the restaurant. it wasn't my first time there but this time was the worst. The meat was so salty and full of fat. they only served us a few kinds of meat. The lambchops were the worse i have ever had. The salad bar was poor compared to other Brazilian restaurants. They charge extra for shrimp which should've been a salad bar item.
Overall I was very disappointed and wouldn't go there again and don't recommend that anybody should.
