The Grill From Ipanema is the only authentic Brazilian restaurant in town. This restaurant takes pride in its hospitality and is committed to offering the best culinary experience so that one can truly taste traditional Brazilian cookery with different flavors and from different regions in Brazil. The inspiration of the menu is a reflection of the people, different cultures, and flavors within Brazil. Try our "Moqueca Mista a Baiana" style, it is a mixed seafood stew of fish, shrimp, mussels, squid, clams and scallops is prepared in a blend of palm oil and coconut milk with fresh cilantro, tomato, onion, scallions and green pepper (Please indicate how spicy) served in a clay pot with rice and fish broth, and a yucca purée on the side. Grill from Ipanema is a delightful surprise to anyone interested in a unique adventure from way down south.

The food was outstanding! We have been there before, but my brother n law and his girlfriend had not. They were so very pleased with their meals.
Portions are more than generous. I made 3 meals out of my order!

Initially, waitress was pushy and frustrating. Told literally 3 times “I am waiting for my husband” but continually asking if I was ready to order and did I want wine menu. I don’t know if I (or we) (or he) wants wine, I am *waiting for my husband.*

Would give 3.5 stars if possible. Ambience nice. Remaining service pleasant/decent. Just do not pushy staff or being rushed. Reservations btw were early enough there was no need to rush they didn’t have back up or waiting folks, in fact - most of our meal it was half empty.

Excellent food, service, can’t wait to come back again. I plan on making this a part of my regular restaurants. I was so pleased finding an authentic Brazilian restaurant and my family was as well.

I was surprised I had a bad experience based on reviews. Issues were
1. both dishes we ordered were terrible.
2. one dish was actually based on server strong recommendation (she encouraged me to order it as opposed to what I originally told her I wanted). yet it was still bad!
3. I made my reservation via OpenTable, showed up on time with my wife. They somehow changed my reservation to "one person" despite two of us showing up as planned, messing with my Open Table points.
4. They completely forgot to bring the appetizer we ordered.
5. Way too pricey for food that was subpar

Upside: they graciously surprised us with a delicious chocolate desert due to the forgotten appetizer.

This was a fabulous place! The service was warm and attentive and the food was just excellent (I was dining with a colleague who has spent several years working in Brazil, so she had some expectations).

Delicious food, cozy place, good service and lovely Brazilian bossa nova and samba in the background. Save some room for dessert, as you shouldn't miss their spectacular homemade flan!
