    This was our third visit to this restaurant. The quality of food and the service have been steadily declining. The meats are overly salty, mostly undercooked, with some, like leg of lamb, being very dry and chewy. The service is very spotty, even the water is not refilled when asked. It is no longer worth coming here. We would rather drive to Orange County and go to Fogo de Chao.

    Tina was a very pleasant and attentive server. She made sure I had plenty of the hot and delicious French fries. Salad bar had an excellent assortment of items. Really enjoyed the Brazilian spicy peppers and the hearts of palm. Flank steak was great as was the lamb. We will be back!

    Fogo is better. The specialty meats that are included at Fogo, are not included here (lamb chop and ribeye for example). Also, insane policies about splitting checks. Had a group of 4 coworkers with me and they could not provide us with separate checks. Insanity.

    So good, so, so good. We were there because my kid got straight A's last semester, and wanted to eat some meat. He skipped the salad bar and just went straight to scarfing. He got to try a bunch of different stuff he hadn't had before, and was in hog heaven. The adults at the table hit the salad bar as a little warm-up first. It's legit. So many options, and they're all good. I got these little peppers, and holy crap, they set my mouth on fire, I loved them. When the meats started coming around, we hit it hard. Everything was cooked well, and delicious. We ordered all the deserts at the end, was a bit of a mistake, as the food coma had already begun to sink in. They were all awesome, and our server was top notch! Will definitely return in the future.

    I had made our valentines day reservations before I knew that I was having knee replacement surgery 9 days before, but I was determined to go anyway. The restaurant was very helpful in getting us an easy to navigate table since I had a walker. The food was delicious as always, and the signature drink was great. My husband is a meateater, so he was happy with all the options they brought, I loved the salad bar options as well. We were able to have a quick meal which my knee appreciated, but we were never rushed despite how busy they were.

    This is our first time dining at this place. We were eager to try it out as we’ve been to Brazilian steak houses before and we enjoyed it. We weren’t all that impressed. We thought they should’ve had more of the meat selection. The salad bar was good. We also tried their cocktails and were tasty. Other than that nothing else stuck out.

    If you love meat, and choices in meat, this is the place for you. The salad bar and hot food selection is wonderful, and you can definitely fill up on those choices, but the star here is the meat. It is sliced at your table and includes a variety of meats including beef, pork, lamb, chicken and sausages. The restaurant is not overly large, so reservations are definitely recommended.

    The food vs the value does not equal. For the price I feel it could have been better. My boyfriend said he would only give it a 6/10 himself. I don’t think we will be going back.

    The only negative was I did not like the table we were given for our party. I made the reservation over a week in advance and they gave us a table next to the bar & front door entrance. It was my birthday and I would have preferred a table towards the back near the restrooms because the noise level and ambiance is more in tune with what I like in that area. I had previously been for my husband's birthday and on that visit was given a table in the back and made the experience more intimate

    Service was lousy. Slow to refill drinks or clear dirty plates. It really wasn't very busy, servers just seemed lazy. Food runners may or may not pass up your table for no reason. The small print on any coupon or deal they might offer is just nuts. Price transparency is a joke. Offered a slice of cake "brazilian style". That turned out to be a $25 slice of cake, seriously it takes 3 different line items to ring up. Was told over and over not to forget to tip 20% and had it highlighted on the bill. Overall not up to par with the quality of a Fogo experience, felt more expensive and much lower quality of service. Maybe what I should expect for going to a mall restaurant.

    Unique dining experience as vast selections of meat are brought to the table on large skewers and sliced in front of you. The "salad bar" is much more than salad and more of a "side dish extreme bar," including shrimp, soups, cheeses, cold cuts, etc. Good coctail and wine list. Had a bottle of wine, so i can't comment on coctail quality. Was unfortunately too full for desert. However, the desert tray had many tempting offerings. The staff were all attentive and friendly, and there were no lags in meats, drinks, etc. coming to the table. Costs were about what I would expect for this type of meal. Will definitely eat there again.

    An excellent meal on a busy Saturday night. Started at the bar while waiting for our dining companions to arrive - the bar staff was friendly and efficient, and recommended a passably good anejo tequila. We were seated at a table for 4 in the middle of the restaurant. It was quite noisy, and the wait staff had a hard time hearing us, but were generally very attentive and pleasant. The meats came, with many choices and quite frequently. The leg of lamb was particularly good, as were the usual steak choices. One suggestion is to offer a lighter dessert choice, like a citrus sorbet. After (over)indulging in meats, our appetite for the heavier choices just was not there.

    Well this is not gonna be case for anyone going there but I had a pretty scary experience there last night. It was for my birthday and I was pretty excited to go since I had a great time on my first occasion (other than feeling kinda scammed for the water I didn’t know I had to pay). We showed up with gift cards I got from Costco and I was told I was gonna be given a complimentary desert for my birthday which was nice. We sat down on our table and waited about couple mins for our server Luca to greet us asking us for drinks. I had the “___ sunrise”(don’t remember the name) cocktail and I gotta say it was very strong which I didn’t expect. We started with the salad bar which was great as usual other than the fact the fish soup thing was replaced by the sauted mushrooms and the potato soup being very salty. We then had to remind the server to get us our hot sides as we were watching tables that sat down after us get theirs much earlier and I had to ask 3 different servers for our bread before we got ours(Idk why it didn’t just come with the hot sides). As expected the meat was great but they had limited options for that night which I didn’t know changes each day. This is when the story gets scary. As we were enjoying our dinner, a fellow customer came up to us and quietly asked us if any of us are paramedic or nurse. We answered no and we turned around to see a lady on the ground receiving cpr. At first everyone in the restaurant was very nonchalant about it then the security came rushing in, followed by cops, then ambulance(which came surprisingly fast). This went on for about 10-15 mins. From my perspective I was pretty surprised to see there wasn’t anyone panicking, just the manager who was trying to remain composed while on the phone. The craziest part through all of this was that servers were still doing rounds asking if we wanted to have some spicy fillet mignon or whatever while there was a dead lady on the back of the restaurant.

    service was good as usual, food VERY salty, some nats on the salad bar offerings, less food coming out and smaller portions. For 3 people one with water and just the salad bar 230.00 with tip is not worth it.

    I’m glad so many people have had a great experience here. We were really looking forward to it, but did not. We have no desire to return, ever. We arrived on time for a 4pm reservation, but had to wait about 20 minutes. No big deal, except how that influenced the end of the meal. Our waiter was very aloof, seemed completely uninterested. After explaining the process, he walked away and I had to stop him to ask if we could order drinks. (That was surprising, but the other wait staff were excellent). The food was just ok. There were about 8 different meats brought around while we were there, most multiple times. One was excellent, 6 were good to ok, one was terrible. Some kind of spicy steak that was very tough with lots of gristle. We ordered desserts, which were delicious, and coffee. Then a lady we hadn’t seen before appeared with our check (manager maybe?), which I promptly paid, she took and then promptly returned. THEN she told us they had a large party coming in later and needed our table, so if we could move along they would appreciate it. Wow. Four people, $420, 1 and ½ hours, and we’re asked to leave before we’ve finished so they can turn the table. Btw, we walked by about a half hour later and the “large party” had yet to appear.

    Great value for the price. The service is very good and the quality of the meats are fantastic. The salad bar could use a little more but hey what do I care I'm there for the meats. Don't forget to ask for the secret menu item, ribs, mmmmm.
