It was our first time there and we loved it ! All you can eat salad bar, it's more like a buffet in itself. All you can eat meat served tableside, what more could you need. It is very wheelchair accessible and very friendly and knowledgeable staff

We were the only ones in the place at 6pm on a Tuesday. Food was just ok and since we were the only ones there they didn't put the red meats on until we arrived so we had to wait a bit. Chicken and pork selections were a bit dry/tough (obviously they had been on for a while). Salad bar didn't have much fresh fruit (no melon or grapes - what my 2 kids eat) and no crackers which was strange. Services was just as awesome as ever - all of the gauchos gave us great attention since we were their only table! Our server never let our drinks go below 1/2 way and was very attentive and friendly. Normally I give them a 5/5 rating for everything but this time we weren't as pleased. Pricing for kids went up from $10 to $12 as well. If you're planning on visiting do it on a busier evening!

The food was wonderful the service was wonderful it wasn't too outrageously price we took our two young sons they loved it we went on a Sunday afternoon so it wasn't super busy. They didn't have music blaring the servers were very good very kind very patient we took our two-year-old so it was a wonderful experience with him are eight year old son love that they brought out on these big rods it wasn't too hard to get to it was right by Nationwide arena right by Huntington ballpark so would be an awesome place to stop and grab lunch or dinner before or after a game.

I've lost count how many times my family and I have been to Rodizio's. Anything close to a celebrated event is enough reason for us to come back. The salad bar is wonderfully overwhelming and pairs so well with the main menu. The staff are always friendly and make the experience even better.

MEAT sweats yes please! This place has an awesome atmosphere and plenty of fine cut assorted meats that just dont stop coming. Not to mention the unlimited salad bar full of wonderful foods. I had a great brunch with my wife and friends here and we will be back as it goes into our top 5 favorite brunch spots. Just make sure you come hungry and ready to eat until you pop.

This was our second visit to Rodizio Grill. The first time we went, we absolutely fell in love and enjoyed our experience so much that we were excited to go back. However, we were very disappointed in our dining experience this time. The buffet/salad bar had very limited selections and most items were picked over and mostly empty- there was not even enough salad dressing for my family to all make salads. Our server was very friendly but had far too many tables. (She appeared to be one of only two servers working the entire restaurant.) The meat was delicious, but the selections were not nearly as vast as our previous visit. All in all, I do not necessarily think we will make it a point to return on our next visit to Columbus.

They packed everyone and so tight there is no room to get out of your table and walk to the buffet line. Kept bumping chairs with other people. They charge more for a holiday and say that it is because there are new items on the menu, but the selection was still very poor. The new items we didn’t even get to try because they Never came around with them. And the meat items then just slice off a sliver of meat. You’re done in two bites and have to wait for another person to come around.

Really great food presented in a unique and fun way. The emphasis is on roasted meats, but the salad bar (much more than a traditional salad bar) should not be ignored.

The place was nice. I didn’t see the 16 meat options as was stated, but maybe they count the two different roasted pineapple choices as meats. They came around to the tables often to serve the meats which was nice. The salad bar was okay. Not as many options as I was hoping for. The place was busy so they ran out of spoons and bread. For $44 a person, it wasnt really worth it to me.

This was our first experience at Rodizio and overall, it was great. The service was friendly and attentive, the food was very good. The only reason I gave 4 on food and overall instead of 5 is just the beef options were exceedingly salty. I know salt brings out the flavor of the meat, but I had trouble tasting anything but the salt when receiving pieces from the outer portion. Otherwise, everything was very, very good.

I didn’t enjoy Rodizio Grill, there was not a large variety of meat and the salad bar was small and messy. The quality of the meat was inferior to the other Brazilian steakhouses I’ve visited. The service was good it’s a shame that energy wasn’t present in the food.

Food was amazing. We had a great time. But for certain cuts of meat we had to wait a very long time before visits to our table despite multiple requests of the server. We would even see these cuts come out of the kitchen but the servers would always start at the same table/side of the room regardless of where they left off the last time. I guess we just got the unlucky side of the room. But overall it was a great experience and I can’t think of a more delicious meal you could have for a workday lunch.

Service was just ok- we had to ask multiple times for the servers to bring meat to our table. Some of the meat was tough or undercooked. I've been to several Brazilian steakhouses and this was by far the worst.

This was average/slightly below average food at a special occasion price. We had early reservations (6:00 pm on a Sunday) but already they were out of some table served items. The salad bar was not well-monitored and several dishes ran out.
Everyone paid the same price ($39/person at our visit) - even the vegetarians and vegans in the group who ate no meat. They would do well to offer a "salad bar only" price/option to attract mixed crowds. None of the items on the salad bar were labeled as to ingredients. When I asked a server for help identifying the vegetarian/vegan items on the salad bar, she mentioned the black bean stew as being safe, despite the fact that it clearly contained hunks of sausage.
The people in our party who ate meat all agreed that the quality decreased as the meal went on. The desserts were eh - tasted bulk/commercially made.
On the upside, the table servers were extremely attentive and doing their best to be professional. They lacked knowledge about the animals they were serving beyond the simple title of the fare, and so were unable to answer questions, but they seemed to be doing their politest best to ensure that guests had a pleasant evening. However, there was frequent reaching across one person to serve another.

We were sat in the rear of the restaurant at a round table in the middle of the room. This in and of itself is no big deal except that the servers with the skewers of meat came out of the kitchen and ran a pattern that completely skipped our table. After sitting for 20 minutes with a very hit or miss stop by one of them (never was a guy carrying steak) we had to get almost forceful with them as they passed by to get them to stop.

We would have told the woman who was refilling drinks except she didn’t come by. I ended up getting a glass of wine and would have had more had she come by and given me the chance to order them.

I will say that once we broke the pattern, the “food delivery” got better but was still significantly sub-par compared to other visits. Because we have had better experiences here we will most likely try it again. But had this been our first time it would have been our last.

Disappointed that the website offers a Brunch menu/price for Saturdays and Sundays but when we arrived our waitress informed us that they discontinued that menu months ago. Brunch was the only reason we made the reservations due to us already dining at this location for lunch and dinner before.

The portions they slice for you are small. Limited selection of meats (Fogo de Chao offered more choices) and the salad bar was missing key items I expect to find at a Brazilian steakhouse. The price was a bit steep for the quality of the food. The meat seemed to be under cooked or over cooked when asking for medium cuts. I will not be going back.
