            Excellent service. Outstanding quality-both the salad bar, and the meat offerings. Wonderful, classy music. Table layout conducive to conversation, good ambiance. Attentive hosting. Would come again! One thing I wish I could change: $14 for a caipirinha feels crazy expensive for a drink that costs $1 to make at home.

            We ordered the 17 meat service and it was excellent, but felt the servers came around too quickly at first, then a little slowly toward the end. Paolo was definitely the best server!

            Food was great and abundant but it's the first time I've paid $54 for a salad bar. My husband opted for all the meat on the skewer offerings and I asked to skip that and just enjoy the plentiful salad bar that had a nice selection of vegetables as well as a few cheeses. Didn't think I'd be charged the same as him. Live and learn. Overall it was a nice evening albeit pricey.

            The restaurant was extremely noisy which was exacerbated by a large birthday party gathering for a 7 year old placed in the middle of the dining room. Although the servers (with the meat) were plentiful and our plates were never left empty, it was difficult to find anyone to take a drink order or refill our water glasses. This steak house is not The Oak Room, it is not The Palm, it is not even Ruth’s Chris steakhouse - it is mardi gras unleashed. The price was just not worth the experience or the food quality.

            The food was ok, but the salad bar had fewer options than other Brazilian steakhouses. The beef was great but the chicken, both varieties were not my favorite. The grilled pineapple was delicious! The servers were pleasant and responsive. Not sure why we were seated upstairs. It would have been nice to hear the live music downstairs.

            Everything was delicious. The only issue that we had was that we were offered 2 small cups of tequila and were not informed that it would cost 19 dollars a piece, especially when my wife did not even drink hers. Besides that, this was a fantastic meal and probably one of the best parts of our trip!

            The atmosphere was overwhelming and very noisy/loud. The meats were okay. We received two side dishes of mashed potatoes and plantations which didn’t have a lot of flavor. Salad bar was great and the highlight of the meal. Candied bacon was yummy. It appears to be higher scale dining based on the price and expected experience, but it wasn’t.

            So noisy that we left. Booked it for our anniversary dinner and felt like we walked into a daycare. Kids running rampant screaming everywhere. Staff was nice and I am sure the food is probably good, but for the $, this experience was not what I was looking for.
