My husband and I love this restaurant. We go to this restaurant for both family special occasions and personal meals for just the 2 of us. The salad bar is diverse and well stocked. The meats are varied and tasty, and the pineapple is to die for! I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

The buffet alone is worth the price. I feel for those guys having to interrupt each table. They're really kind and have a great sense of humor.

Food was very good, but rather expensive for what it was. Traditional table service was somewhat slow but the Brazilian meat servers moved quickly. Atmosphere and ambient noise were unremasrkable.

We were there for the Carnavale night which had special spicy preparations of the meats. It was excellent especially the pepper steak, the cayenne and cinnamon pineapple, the spicy chicken, and the spicy lamb. Our friends who had never been to a churrascaria loved the food and the presentation.

We didnt have anyone come to our table for a very long time after. Being seated. Also, our server was no where to be found the entire meal. Moreover , there was an air of confusion and disorganization in the restaurant

This was our second time to Rodizio Grill-Sarasota, it was very disappointing the califlower bacon soup was runny and full of bacon fat, not like before where it was creamy and delicious. We only were asked for 2 types of tenderloin, our first visit there was more offerings and different kinds. The hot foods were luke warm, the salad was wilted, it was a very disappointing experience and especially the cost vs. the value of the food next time I will go to a steak house like Ruth Chris or Flemings, I think even Longhorn Steak House would have been better and more value, we will probably never come back. Also I did my reservation on Opentable and they could not find it when we arrived, but the hostess said no problem, happens all the time, they had a corner table for us. I was so looking forward to this since our first experience was so wonderful, but never again, I'm so disappointed.

We arrived just after 5:00. The restaurant was near empty. However, the young lady seating people was placing groups on top of each other near the opening to the room. A large group of maybe 20-24 arrived and were also seated in the room. This group was mostly kids. The parents did nothing to stop their activity. Instead of walking, they ran from the table to the bathrooms giggling like crazy. As the parents weren’t saying anything, I feel the manager should have said something. I’ve never seen such behavior at Rodizio, or any other restaurant.

Our first visit about a year ago was wonderful. This was our 2nd visit and we were incredibly disappointed at the drastic difference in the quality of food and service. The food was terrible; it was difficult to get a server’s attention to have more meat brought to our table, and the variety of meats offered was minimal at best. At $50 a head, never again.

We went for valentines dinner and for the dinner special. The food was delicious as always. Service was subpar, our waiter did not come to our table as frequently as our first visit. Probably twice and we were there for a while. Took awhile to get our drinks. I understand they were busy for Valentine’s Day, but if you’re going to include a 20% gratuity regardless of the service we received, we expect better.

This was our 2nd time visiting and my first experience was much better. For whatever reason the meat, other than the spicy chicken or the lamb had little to no flavor. Maybe because of Valentine's weekend and just not cooked as well? I'm not sure. But for just under $300.00, it should taste a whole lot better. Salad bar was excellent. Put more focus on the meat though. That is what we come for. A place like this should not need steak sauce.

We love going to Radizio we go at least once a month. We would never go for a holiday again though. We felt due to the 20% tip being added automatically onto the bill the staff slacked off. Usually the food servicers are constantly around but during this meal Saturday we felt we had empty plates for at least 4-5 minutes unlit someone would come to us. Then our waitress was barley around it took exactly 25 minutes to finally pay our bill she disappeared. We were very disappointed and frustrated to pay a lot more for bad service for the same meal we could get any other day but with excellent service with a much lower cost.

It is a place to experience at least once. It was not a holiday but I guess they still felt they could charge full price even at brunch. The service was good. There were items missing from brunch that were added for dinner but we did not get to enjoy them.
