Always great food. Friendly staff. Really push the wine menu, but not always the most knowledgeable. Always happy to bring tastings to help find the right bottle, though.

Great food, great variety, straight off the fire and cooked exceptionally well. Also, great that they have the Veterans Day discount! Thank you! Only thing it’s missing is a wider choice of beers to go with the meats and should list them in the menu.

We have been to this restaurant twice. Both times everything was wonderful except for our server. The first time, we could not have asked for a better server. She took such great care of us. She was amazing. The second time, not so much. We rarely saw our server. We had to ask for drink refills. It wasn’t he was bad, he just wasn’t the caliber of the first server who took care of us. We will still definitely be back again.

Food was great maybe a bit steep of price.
An all you can eat is great for athletes and over eaters but as an average size person id rather have one full plate of delicious food in a quiet restaurant with a view and not at a mall where parking can be a challenge during dinner hour. This was our 3rd visit the first visit seemed a little bit chaotic in the room but understandable, 2nd visit was our favorite because our server a young lady (sorry I don’t remember her name) was warm, gracious, attentive and just an absolute charm! Unfortunately this last visit was our least favorite. The food was still on point but $50 + plate in a mall restaurant I’m not sure about that. Unfortunately, our server fell short of great service compared to our previous visit, it seemed like he was bothered at the fact we all just chose water and not cocktails or soda so we all felt maybe that’s why he wasn’t around checking on us that much, my guess is he was paying attention to the other tables that were buying drinks, I don’t know. Also, one of the suit and tie people noticed I was low on water said he would refill but he never returned. After waiting five minutes or so I looked around for him and seen he was busy I get it but you asked for a review.

Amazing food, amazing staff! Very attentive. The lobster soup was great. Our waiter was present just enough, never over bearing. Just wish the deserts were included.

Service was not very good.had to wait to get more food. Tbey forgot my dessert and charged me for a bottle of wine when we had a glass of wine..the beef was tough except for filet mignon which tbey came by once that night with that.. 5 times for flank steak which was not good. Overall not worth the high prices they charge

Avoiding the weekend crowd, we experienced a quiet, clean, and un-rushed atmosphere. Prompt and friendly service, and the food was very good.

We have been there 3 times now. The first 2 times were excellent food and service. The last time the food was still excellent but the service was very slow. We had to ask the waitress for the disc that you flip when you want the meat as she had forgotten to give it to us. The first 2 visits we were turning the card over to stop the meat from coming to the table but this time we had to ask the waitress to send them over to our table. They came once after that. We left shortly after that.

Out of all the brazilian steak houses Ive been to, this has been the worst. Our table was next to the service counter, there only 4 warm entrees, took 25 minutes for actual meat to get to us and our waiter wasnt terribly attentive ( since we only had 2 people). The quality of the meat was not so good when we did receive it, if I wanted a generically cooked steak, I'd go to my friends BBQ. Avoid, go some place else, plenty of places in Tacoma with much better quality meats.

I took my 13 year old daughter out for a special experience tonight. I’ve decided that after 4 visits, (maybe 5?) this was the last time.

There were meats we never had offered to us, (pork, sausage, chicken) and I said no lamb at all, but had to decline it several times.

I feel like our very first experience when the restaurant opened was superb, and it’s become noting but a trashy all-you-can-eat with a top-dollar price tag.

Servers drenched in cologne and the Manager appearing to flirt with another employee really helped degrade the overall atmosphere.

Screaming children running around the restaurant was the last straw.

My real only complaint was On a date and I made reservations and it was 25 minutes after my reservations that we got seated and we arrived early. Other than that it was a great experience.

For the most part we enjoyed it. One issue we had was as a large group that was there was super loud. Apparently they were buying $250 bottles, the waitress made sure to tell us this which I thought was odd. Several other guests and even some employees looked irritated by the constant shouting done by one or two of the members of the group. We were there celebrating our anniversary and it was very distracting and annoying.

Our server was great, super friendly. Meat was delicious, salad bar was pretty good too.

All in all we left with fat, happy overly full bellies!

I'm sure we will be back.

My husband and my first visit. It was worth the price with the delicious, tender cuts of meat and salad bar. The salad bar, lobster bisque, black beans and rice and cod are wonderful also. We will be back with our adult kids. Note: you can not use Costco gift cards if using the welcome $20 coupon. Still worth it!

Overall good experience. A few things: you should be adept at opening a wine bottle- our server struggled painfully and even sloshed the wine, then spilled it all over our table and either didn’t notice, or didn’t think it was worth cleaning up. I got wine on my dress :(. Some of our meat was really dry and tough- not what we expected. The service and attention from the manager was the excellent, almost too much as we were interrupted a good 15 times over the course of our meal. I get it, but too much is too much- it could have been where we were seated. In a half empty restaurant don’t see customers in the main walkway from the kitchen- it was a constant barrage. Also, warm plates are nice- warm meat in a cold plate not so great. Even room temp is better than the chilled plates they gave us from the salad bar. More napkins are nice when you serve ribs. Overall we had a nice evening, and our shared desert was perfect! Next time, I’ll insist on better seating where we can have a more relaxed meal.

Our servers were great. As our first time we were explained how to get food and such. We ran into an issue when we paid. Our bill was 140$. We had a 100$ gift card and then put $100 in the folder to cover the rest. We only got back $40 for change. Nowhere on the receipt did it say if the tip was included or not. After we had paid, nobody ever came back to answer our question so we just left. The hostess had no idea if gratuity was covered as well.

The only good thing about this restaurant was that the meat was wonderful. Other than that, it was not a great experience. The server assumed we kept wanting sparkling water and kept bringing it out, only to turn out it was $6 per bottle. When my husband asked for an old fashioned, he was automatically given 14 year old Glenlevit at $15 per drink. The process of how we would eat was never explained and we had to ask what to do. Overall, for the $$ i was not happy at all. We won’t be going back.

We were sat by the entry door/ bar... not the best. Salad Bar was great. Loved most of the meats. Service was better than anywhere else. Almost to much. Servers of meat were all spot on from what you want. A manager did come by our table.

Fantastic service, amazing food. I will highly recommend to everyone. Pricy but worth every penny. The only thing I could complain about is I feel like desert should be included in the price wether you take it or leave it. Almost $200 for two people to eat one meal seems extreme

If you are a meat eater, you will for sure get your money's worth. If you are NOT a major meat eater, don't go here lol. The salad bar wasn't awful but wasn't worth $50 for. I will say thought that the staff was amazing, always making sure we had what we needed and fulfilled any request we may have had. It was pretty dark in there as the even went on, some people were using the lights on their phones to read the menu.
All in all we had a wonderful experience, I just wouldn't go back not being a major meat eater but that's my own fault. My husband definitely ate a ton of meat and get a lot of value out of our meal.
