Excellent service and almost all the meat selections were top of the line! My only (minor) complaint was that the chicken hearts were over done and rubbery with an odd seasoning. I probably will no longer ask for them.
Our server Madilyn was a joy and took care of everything for us!

My husband and I came here for our anniversary when Texas de Brazil was booked up. We went to Texas de Brazil the year before and loved it, so it was nice to be able to compare.
Honestly, we’ll probably just come here from now on. The only thing Texas de Brazil has on Rodizio Grill is the ambiance. Rodizio Grill does have bright lights and not as much of an *atmosphere*, but the food is just as good if not better. Sure, the salad bar isn’t quite as extensive, but it’s still very impressive and delicious and that’s not what we come to places like this for anyway. The meat was fantastic and y’all, the PINEAPPLE. I could have eaten nothing but the pineapple and been perfectly happy. One waiter (I can’t believe I can’t remember his name) knew how much I loved it and made sure it made its way to me every time, no matter who had it. All of the wait staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating.
Another thing I liked about Rodizio Grill over Texas de Brazil was that at the latter, we could barely get the servers to bring any meat. Our goal was to try everything once and we kept having to request things because they just weren’t bringing the meat out with much frequency. At Rodizio Grill, they are much more frequent but still don’t bombard you. It was perfect.
All in all, we immensely enjoyed our experience and, at least until Texas de Brazil gets some of that pineapple, we’ll go here from now on.

If/when we go back we will probably make reservations for a bit later. When we first arrived (530) the restaurant wasn’t very busy and we noticed the meat that was coming around was cold. As the restaurant filled up we noticed the meat was actually hot. Service was great and the meat came by frequently.

Would like to see more hot sides on salad/buffet that would compliment meat.

Staff was wonderful food delicious just needed more options.

Wasn’t sure what to expect, this was our first time here. So glad we chose to go. Tried many new things and only thing we would not try again was the quail eggs 🤣. Loved it!

I had a pleasurable experience, service was outstanding, food was great, atmosphere was calm and pleasant. A little breezy, from the draft from the opening closing of the main door, overall I highly recommend.

The service was excellent. The ambiance could be improved with dimmer lighting and booth seating. Texas De Brazil hits the nail on the head with this! Food was great, and we really enjoyed the pineapple. We will be back for another special occasion.

We have eaten here several times before. Food is always great. We were sat by the door way from the foyer, so a lot of traffic by us, even though other tables were open. The worst part was our server hardly came to check on us. She walked by many times complaining about her legs hurting to other servers. I just think with the price we pay for the meal at Rodizio, the service should mirror like restaurants. Other than that everything was great.

Food was very good. Price was high due to having prime rib and filet on the rotation but we only had those offered to us once while we had chicken, pork and other meats offered multiple times. That being said we were visited by the staff constantly and we were never out of delicious meats to eat!

Bad service. Salad bar was gross and was out of almost half of everything. Would not recommend.
Stick with. Texas de Brazil if you want this type of restaurant.

Disclaimer....I am an avid Texas de Brazil eater and I've been to Fogo de Chao. Rodizio is nowhere in their league. Everything from the ambiance to the food is forgettable. Glad I tried it to get it out of my system but would never return.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday and the service was fantastic!! I have a pretty severe gluten allergy and not only did my research, but everything on the salad bar was labeled! All the food was amazing, my picky 6 year old even liked all of it and loved taking the meat off the skewer when the gentleman cut it. They were all super nice and it was a great way to celebrate!!

I had been wanting to go here for a while because everyone said it was a great place to eat. My wife and I went before seeing the TSO an we were not disappointed. The interior was beautiful and well laid out. It wasn't overly noisy. The service was quick and professional. The food was amazing and the I loved the variety of meats that were available was impressive even at lunch time. I can't wait to go back for a dinner. I would definitely recommend this place!!!

This was my third visit, with the last two coming in the same week. I wanted to bring my daughter back with me. We both enjoyed every aspect of our visit. The food was amazing and we never had to wait for someone to bring something new and delicious to our table. The ONLY thing I would change was from the beer selections. With the restaurant being in Coulmbus , I thought they would have Columbus IPA on tap or at least in a bottle. That would have made all three times the PERFECT dining experience's

Service was great but the food was subpar at best. Meat was fairly dry. The hot food items were cold. Management and service staff was friendly and more than accommodating. Maybe it was just an off day for the cooks on this day.

We were there for a team holiday lunch. They brought mat to our table only a few times the entire time. We had to request a manager to even get meat on a regular. Also we asked for meats to be cooked a little longer. They would NOT do it. So we barely ate any meats because they were not cooked long enough for us. Additionally, the sides were not replenished often. Some were dry like they’ve been sitting all day. Not a good first experience and will not be back.

Although the ambiance and service was nice, the salad bar was very ordinary, we could not opt out of the all-you-can-eat, and we just don’t eat enough to justify spending over $50/person. The meats were lovely.

Grilled meats great, staff very nice, but the salad bar was mediocre, BLT salad stale, mushrooms raw, and feijojada and collard greens poorly executed.
