Gathered the family for the first time in many months for a dinner out in Philadelphia. The meats were very tasty and they had a great selection of rare, medium and well each time they came to the table. One suggestion we have is to have grilled pineapple come around to finish the meal. Great time had by all!

A time and again favorite that rarely disappoints. I find it easy to forgive an occasional lapse because of the consistently good food and wine.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this restaurant.
Nothing I can say can give justice to this place.
You have to experience it yourself.
From the food to the service, to the incredible atmosphere, I couldn't find anything bad to say about this place.
It was an amazing dining experience for both of us.

The employees from the owner’s son, hostess, servers and cooks were excellent. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very trendy. I can’t speak enough of the service- just the best. And of course the food was delicious. Would highly recommend.

Opened at 12 staff was not even ready... they were still loading the buffet... on top of that they advertise a lunch special 29.90 on weekends turned out to be 39.90 because according to them mother’s day is a holiday and during a holiday it is 39,90 however it does not say on their website anything about the holiday. Very disappointing will not return there

It was fine for the price. Service was a little slow and could have used more variety in the meat selections and deserts. But overall a very good experience.

Spent a lot of time waiting for meat to come by. There is no real system for waiters to serve tables. I would prefer Chima or Fogo De Chao

Firstly, I Was not greeted by a host until i had to get the attention of a waiter and after that it still took time for the host to greet me. On the review it said 5 stars but in reality this is a 2-3 star restaurant. The staff are not welcoming, friendly, or polite when interacting with you. Waiter did not greet us nor give us menus. The food was mediocre and the guy serving the meat was extremely rude and inconsiderate. They couldn’t accommodate for dietary restrictions and were very rude about it. I took a view bites and walked out. The rude staff and horrible food = a horrible experience will never go back to this wanna be Chimas. Not to mention the restaurant its self is cheaply decorated and crammed.

Great atmostphere! Service was wonderful. They asked at the start of the meal if we had any time constraits and when we said that we had none they ensured that our meal did not feel rushed nor too long. The food was amazing, possibly the best steak I have had in any Philadelphia restaurant!

Best service I've had at a restaurant in my life. Also, the wine list was exhaustive, but in a good way. Although it was a very nice restaurant, they still had some wine by the glass that wasn't outrageous in price.
