No wait to eat once you are seated, which makes it a good option for time constraints in an evening...

Not even close to being a traditional brazilian restaurant. Rice is microwave one minute rice, all the side dishes are not traditional brazilian sides. The pao de quiejo was stale plus the bananas were black. ABSOLUTELY NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING BRAZILIAN, they come with one meat on a stick, like WHATTT???? For anyone looking for traditional Brazilian go to Texas the extra $20 on a saturday night is worth it.

My husband and I have gone here many times for special occasions and decided to take our 3 kids to celebrate another special occasion. Usually all of the food is beyond amazing but we were really disappointed this time. Several of the steaks were fatty or had large amounts of chewy grisle in them. I was given 3 pieces of the parmesan steak and couldn't eat any of it because it was so fatty. The chicken is usually exceptional but it was not this time. Again, lots of fat chewy stuff and it was almost uncooked tasting. The pineapple and ham were outstanding but for as much as it costs for 2 adults and 3 kids to go at dinner time we expected everything to be outstanding like it has been in the past.

Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Good place to eat before hockey game. I enjoyed being able to try all of the different foods. The only downfall is that I know that I did not eat enough food to justify the cost.

Meats were very dry, except for the top sirloin it will literally melted in your mouth, went on my Birthday at lunch time seems way over priced for what you're getting. and that's at 19.99 per person for dinner I heard its 45$ per person, In my opinion there are just way better restaurants to spend 50$ on!!! The Salad Bar was just OK, The pineapple was really good, the drinks from the bar was amazing!!!! other than the top sirloin the other meats honestly tasted like jerky.
Sorry for the bad review I was just super disappointed in the food, the staff was excellent!!!!

First time, didn't know what to expect. Jeff (our server) was very helpful and lead us through the dining process. He explained the salad bar/hot dishes and the meat service. The Gauchos were friendly and always present with skewers of beef, pork, chicken, fish, & pineapple (don't skip the pineapple). The food was delicious with Brazilian dishes both hot & cold. Try as many as you can and much protein as you can without going into a food coma. Lots of fun. Not too noisy. Friendly staff.

I have been here a few times so I have not negative comments on the food. However, I received a free dessert for my birthday, along with a BOGO free meal that expired in three months. My birthday meal I have sausage, bacon wrapped chicken and Filet Mignon as well as the other meats served. My second trip on April 6, I asked about the bacon wrapped chicken and they said it was only for dinner. We never did get any sausage. Also, there was a server in training. I guess he didn't do something correctly and the trainer kicked him. White man kicking a black man for not doing something correctly while in training, I certainly didn't like that. Since he was in training, I would not have minded some constructive criticism vs a kick.

The people here make this a special place. All of the food servers and wait staff are great people that make you feel like you are hanging with friends. Haley remembered my family from a visit 6 months prior. Our waitress Sydney was super polite, attentive and professional. Kareem is a new friend and Clyde is a very nice fella. Richard was there too and I remember him from my past two visits. They are the reason we go. Great people. My nephew and sisters are pictured.

It seemed that we got there at a weird time (6pm). We were getting the ends of all the meat from the lunch timeand all of the red meat was over cooked. By the end of our meal they were coming out with new fresh meats but we were already full by then on the leftovers from the lunch. Some of it was good but over all disappointing compared to all the good reviews I saw.

I love this resturant we go at least 3 times a year. BUT this experience was the worst ever, the food was great and the guys bringing the food were great. The 3 female servers were terrible, one couldn't tell me what they offered to drink after she said they no longer had what I asked for. Also she treated me like a child until my fiance came in and sat down, after we requested a new server she purposely went out of her way to walk by and give us dirty looks. Never have I had a worse experience here in my life. Everyone who knows us because we go there enough for several people to know our names were great.

The food and service were top notch. It would have been a perfect date except for one really bug problem. Unfortunately for us, there was a foursome at the next table who were veryobscene, very loud, and very rude. They anounced loudly that they were both lesbian and minority. They were hostile in challenging any one to be offended. They cussed, talked vulgarly about the male anatomy of the servers, and loudly described sex acts. Everyone else in the restaurant, including the servers were uncomfortable and offended.

Service was excellent, salad bar was so so, we are used to the other Brazilian steakhouse across town. The food on the salad bar was warm when it should have been hot. However the meat was very good and the rodizio sangria was excellent (white). Flan for desert was also good. Coffee was strong otherwise typical restaurant coffee. Didn’t think we overpaid, and we will go again.

This was my second experience with a Brazilian steakhouse, the other being in Atlanta several years ago. Very similar. Servers continuously brought various selections of meat to your table as long as you had your indicator set for green. The salad and pasta bar was as varied and generous as they come and could be a whole meal in itself if you want to forgo the meat. The food was delicious. My knock was that it was difficult to maintain a conversation with my friend because we were continually interrupted by the servers. This was a distraction and occurred in part because the portions they give you are small, thin slices that are consumed in two bites and then you want more. I did ask for extra a couple times, only to be given a smaller slice than the first. I found this to be a great frustration. I pay for the meat. I want a slice that I can work on while conversing with my friends. This played into the value rating. The food was great, but the small portions left me wondering if I really got my moneys worth.

The food was really good, and the service was outstanding. The atmosphere was nice, but nothing special. The salad bar has some really unique things, and everything we tried was good. It's in a great location and better than typical bar food if you're heading to the arena.

Took my staff and their spouses out to show appreciation and to spend some fun time together away from the work environment. We had a blast. Food was great and the meal takes a while so we had plenty of time to visit. The servers were fun and helped us enjoy the experience. We might just make it an annual event!

Are meat sweats real? that was the debate after our meal. The whole concept here is getting a bit old and the food is solidly average. Our servers were all energetic and very nice, but if I want a chunk of meat I think Hyde Park or the equivalent is a much better experience
