    Friendly staff that were accommodating. Our waitress was very nice but she seemed overwhelmed since it looked like they were under staffed. The food was very very average, meat was good but I’ve had better Brazilian elsewhere. The best thing was the lobster bisque which was outstanding. I didn’t like that you couldn’t order ala carté dishes like fried polenta or yucca fries which is normally a staple for Brazilian places. Also the meat didn’t come out quick enough and we were only offered 3-4 types when they have like 8 different selections. I don’t think I would recommend or even go again unless they change their menu and the service. Granted they are new and still working out the kinks but some things should be obvious.

    The restaurant is beautifully decorated and does a great job mimicking a traditional Brazilian steakhouse. The cold buffet was plentiful and tasty and the selection of meats brought to the table were delicious! Service was attentive without being overbearing and overall we had a great evening. Only flaw was that the price for dining is not posted anywhere so the cost was a complete mystery until the check arrived. We knew roughly what to expect based on prior experience, but could be frustrating for some.

    New Brazilian steakhouse in downtown Sacramento. Great attentive service. The steak flavor might be a little off but maybe once they're more established, the taste gets better.

    On Open Table it says the price is up to $50. It is actually $75 per person. The price to value is not worth that cost.

    I booked a reservation for 10 people at 12:30pm on Sunday. When we got there the place was empty. The hostess gave us the option of sitting at separate tables (ready right now) or they could move tables together so we could sit together. We chose the 2nd option. They certainly had the availability! It took them 15 minutes to get our table ready. Not a big deal but we had the reservation for a couple days- they could have had it ready for us ahead of time. Our server was very nice but very slow. Slow to take drink orders and bring drinks. Only one Guacho bringing meats around. Again he was very nice and accomodating but it was a little slow. Food was delicious. Buffet and meats both were great! Ordered desserts and again it took quite awhile for them to come out. We had the place to ourselves the whole time beside one other couple. It was a 2 hour meal... probably average for a group of 10. But in my mind with us being the only people there it could have been a faster dinner. I would go again but just go with the idea you are not in a hurry.

    Me and my husband came to this Restaurant on a Friday night around 7:30 and one side of the resturaunt was filled with people but that part was blocked off by a wall and we got out on a side that was fairly empty and only had about 6-7 tables all in close proximity to each other. The server came up to us and said hi do you know how it works here and we had informed her we had been to a Brazilian steak house before but it was our first time here and she said ok just so you know we only have either salad bar or the meat open. We opted in for the meat and salad bar however once we were done at the salad bar we filped our card to yes (start bringing the meat) but we waiting for 45 minutes and only 2 very small pieces of meat came to us (the size of a Oreo) and after the 45 minutes we call our waiter over and tell her that barely anybody has come by and that it's getting close to closing time. She just kept repeating I don't know what is happening with you table and acting very confused and kept repeating I'm sorry my head is not in it tonight I don't know what is going on. I don't think for this kind of establishment it should be this terrible of service. They then brought the manager over and he apologized and a hour into our meal the music finally turned on and we started seeing some meat come our way. The meat tasted very bland and was very raw. We like our meat medium rare which we told them but every piece was coming out extremely rare. We love Brazilian steakhouses but we will not be returning to this one! Very sad and disappointed.

    The food is really good! The cold and hot bar selections are fabulous and the staff is very friendly and attentive. The meat was perfectly cooked. The best part, if you haven’t over eaten already, are the desserts. A great variety to choose from and just amazing. They also have my favorite wine by Duckhorn, Three Palms. Probably the best Brazilian Steakhouse I have ever been to.

    The restaurant had only been open for a couple days prior to our visit, so they're still working out some kinks on waiter service. However, the food came out at a perfect pace, the food was excellent both the meat as well as the salad bar. You will not be disappointed.

    Thrilled to have a Brazilian restaurant of your quality in the downtown area for us to relish. Kindly expedite the serving of the grilled pineapple next time. Our family had a wonderful evening out, all thanks to your establishment.
