Overall it was ok. Many of the meats were quite bland tasting, they only beef with much flavor was the top sirloin. For the price, I was expecting something more.

Missed the tenderloin this time. Maybe a little less chicken dishes but the other meats were superb, not that the chicken wasn't good but chicken is chicken. Salad bar was great and the potatoes were real mashed from whole potatoes not processed from a box. Service was fantastic and friendly. The birthday celebration was really cool with drums and singing. A free desert was offered but not a selection of my choice but it was free so I can't complain. But I would have made a different selection. All in all a neat place.

It's what you'd expect at a Brazilian steakhouse. The salad bar options were very tasty, Martinis were good, limeades were good. The meat especially beefs need more seasoning, they seemed bland especially compared to Texas de Brazil. I also felt like you were offered too much chicken and pork and not enough beef. We were almost done with our dinner before some picahna came around to us. Overall it was good, but if Texas de Brazil were next door, i'd probably go there instead for tastier meat.

Having been to other Brazilian Steakhouses throughout the country this was by far inferior. It was not a memorable experience. I'll never go back.
Noise lever was NOT energetic, it was loud and annoying.

The salad bar was wonderful with many options more than just salad. There were hot options available on the salad bar, quick optionsthat kids were happy with and the meat was endless! Wonderful flavors, cooked the way you like (one person in our party favored well-done tenderloin and they went in the back and brought out a skewer with well done tenderloin!) Highly recommend.

I couldn’t have asked for a better dinner for my parents 40th wedding anniversary! We made reservations for a Saturday night and although it was busy, the service and staff were great! We arrived a bit early and made our way to the bar. The bar staff was very personable and informative about the selection of Brazilian cocktails and made excellent drinks!! When the remainder of our party arrived, we were seated, drink orders taken and given instruction of how to begin and we headed for the salad/side bar! Everything was fresh, fully stocked and very good! I loved the shrimp Ceviche. We sat back down and almost immediately were greeted with the meats! Each one was delicious, tender and of course we asked for them to come back around! Once we went “red” for good, dessert was presented and even though most everyone was stuffed, three different desserts were ordered and shared! I didn’t try any (I really was full) but everything who did try them said they were delicious. My dad especially LOVED the flan! The server came back by and presented my mom and dad each with a complimentary glass of champagne in honor of their anniversary! We didn’t asked for this but it was such an AWESOME gesture! Great job ALL around Rodizio, we will definitely be back!

My wife and I have been wanting to try this restaurant out for quite some time. So on our anniversary we decided to give it a try, and it did not disappoint. The food and staff were fabulous. If you listen to what they tell you when you are first seated, like how it works, you too will have a fabulous experience. So many different choices of meat to choose from, and as much as you want. They continue to keep coming back to your table with different meats, as long as the green side is up. The salad bar was just as good with great selection. Will definitely recommend this restaurant to all my friends and family. Those that have had bad experiences with negative reviews just must be negative people that you just can’t please no matter what you do.

For the second year, we took our family to the Rodizio Grill - Sarasota for Thanksgiving dinner. We all thought that the overall experience was outstanding. They had great food, great service and Management made sure to come by our table several times to check on our experience. Great selection of different types of meat, fish and chicken. They also had a carving station with real turkey and ham, with all of the traditional fixings like mashed potatoes and gravy. It was a bit extra due to holiday pricing, but well worth it if you consider there were no dishes to clean up and we all left stuffed. And with the baked bananas and grilled pineapple, who needs desert. I would recommend this to anyone for a special occasion or holiday. It’s a bit pricey for an average night out.

We came here to celebrate my fiances 30th birthday. It was exciting when we first sat down and we were impressed with the presentation our waitress gave us on what to do and what to expect.
We had pineapple at first, and then for about 10 minutes, I noticed that we were getting over-looked. We had our wooden thing on "green" but, the servers kept walking right by. I figured "well maybe they have designated tables"...so, we waited for a little longer until the man a few tables from us was served 7 times (I literally counted this because I wanted to make sure I wasn't just crazy)! He had meat piled on his plate while not 1 server came to us, but surely passed by us.
I was feeling frustrated because, I wasn't sure why anyone was coming to us. Our waitress stopped by and asked how everything was- I said it was fine- other than the fact we weren't being served and would like to eat some meat. She apologized and disappeared. Finally, people started coming by to offer us different cuts.
I won't be back, but I figured I would share my experience.

A little tricky to find, but plenty of parking.

Similar to other reviews I had read, the serving of meat skewers was very slow and the amount that was sliced was frustratingly small. So most of the time our plates sat empty and we sat waiting.
For my taste, everything was over salted. The pork sausage was so salty, I could not eat it.
The bar drinks were very tasty. Wine was pretty good too.

The banging of the birthday drum interrupted our conversations several times. I guess if it is your birthday, it is fun.

Probably will not go back.

Was looking forward to lobster bisque, but they didn't have it that night. Bacon wrapped filet is apparently only on special occasions, so they didn't have that either. I was hoping for a Texas de Brazil experience, it wasn't quite that calibur, but considering it's close to home and cost less, I would say it was a great 2nd. They do have a great birthday program and the manager was very attentive. Kudos!

This is our second visit, and we took our Canadian friends for their first visit. Food, service, ambiance, and drinks were excellent. The salad bar is one of the nicest I have ever experienced. Very fantastic selection there. And then the meats...absolutely excellent. You know you have a great piece of sirloin when you can cut it with a fork. The grilled pineapple was like fruit candy, absolutely mouth-watering. Someday, I hope to have saved room to try one of their luscious looking desserts! Valeria was our server, and she was so very nice and helpful. Ramon, one of the meat servers, made our whole evening more enjoyable.

This was our first time attending this restaurant. Now that we have experienced it once the next time will be much better. So so so many sides and salads at the sides bar. The options seem endless. The meats that come around for the most part are very good. Even if you didn’t choose the meat option the sides/salads bar is plenty enough.
