    We’ve been here before and love how chill the atmosphere is. Brought my mother-in-law to experience it and she was loving everything! Our waitress was a gem and attentive to every detail. The meat was tender and flavorful. Overall wonderful experience as always.

    Food was delicious as always, but there was only 1 server for the whole restaurant. We waited a very long time to get our drinks, and by the time we were done eating, it was 45+ minutes before we got our checks and could leave. The taps were all down, but the scotch was solid. The waiter gave our Bachelor a few dessert which was nice

    Pleasant, friendly, and fabulous food. I am plantbased and ordered the salad bar. Flavor profiles abound with each salad selection. Fresh fruits and veggies; herbs and spices, oils, flavors all have reason for their addition and all just the perfect amount to give the best flavor.

    Great dinner to start off our mother-daughter weekend getaway. I did feel a bit "rushed" with all the energy from staffs' fast-paced-walk-arounds with the skewers (and the fact we were seated next to the kitchen door), albeit got distracted after we got through about 2-3 skewer visits one after another. The meats were great; I especially liked the garlic steak, peppered steak, ribeye, and the beef tenderloin. The garlic shrimp and grilled pineapple with cinnamon-sugar was delicious too.

    I honestly have no idea where all these positive reviews came from. This was the most disappointing restaurant experience I've had in over a year. I had a reservation for 8:15PM, I arrive exactly on time, but I had to wait 10 minutes for a table. So right off the bat, we have problems. I get seated at a table around 8:25, with no tableware, or glasses, or water. Ten more minutes later at 8:35 someone finally comes by and sets our table, take our drink order and gives us the food chip. But no one ever gave us the appetizer of cheese balls or fried bananas. They completely forgot about that for us, and never said anything about it either. We even saw them give the appetizer to the couple next to us, who sat down AFTER WE DID! We started eating, but it took them another fifty minutes to get my drink order completed and one whole hour to get my wife's drink. This is absurd. I could understand some delays with getting food orders but in no universe should it take an hour to make one cocktail! We also had to wait an absurd amount of time to get the check so we could finally leave. I have no idea how they got so many positive reviews. This experience was horrible, and frustrating. We were never offered any apology or explanation for the wait, we felt like we were just ignored and forgotten for most of the evening. The food tasted good, but I honestly don't care. These days, any restaurant can offer a tasty menu, that's the easy part. What I want when I go out to eat, is a nice experience. The service is what really matters, and what makes me want to go back. So I can safely say, I will never go back, and will make sure none of my friends or family waste their time going here either.

    This experience for Valentine’s Day wasn’t as good due to most of the table didn’t like pink meat l; so they requested well done. which delayed our service and receiving the food and with 12 meats offered, I believe my family only received four, so they were irritated and felt like the cost of the food wasn’t worth the whole experience.  I’ve been here numerous of times and have great service with delicious food, so I just feel like the request kind of delayed that, but I still feel like everyone should have been accommodated, regardless of what their preference of meat

    We’ve eaten here a few times now. Overall it’s a fun experience, but that’s about it. There’s not really “service”. We went celebrating our anniversary last night and waited half the meal for our drinks. The price has increased greatly, to where it doesn’t feel like you get your moneys worth. The environment is similar to that of an Olive Garden but a bill for 2 is easily 200$. It just leaves a sour taste in your mouth. If the location was nicer, the staff was ontop of drinks and checking in , and the meat wasn’t half tough it would be worth it.

    It’s always been expensive but now it’s just overpriced, the ambiance feels tired, the wines are pretty crummy, and every ounce of the experience is overtly designed for profit margin which feels really sad when that experience is so underwhelming

    I really do love this place. Food is terrific always… however, they were 100% understaffed. The manager and one other person were handling the Rodizio duties and there was a party of at least 20 dominating that. Thus, myself and the other folks were getting little action… frankly for that kind of money you expect to walk out stuffed and satisfied… not needing to go buy a bag of chips to complete things. Another frustrating element that this place and most of the Brazilian places now do is try to dump a massive pork rib off on you. Those are cheap and filling but not the good stuff you are paying for... Don’t fall for it folks. I’ll go back at least one more time but if the same thing occurs I’m done. Hoping not though as I’ve had some great meals here.

    Love being able to get small portions of everything and then choosing to eat your fill of your favorites. My friend and I’s favorite side dishes were the mashed potatoes and the cheese balls. The gauchos were all very nice and our server was friendly and helpful. Would definitely go again!

    The grilled meat and salad bar is delicious in every way. The service we received was great only thing that was unexpected was the 20% gratuity which made the bill much higher along with the 10% tax. Made us less willing to tip since it was non voluntary selected for us. Since gratuity was their tip. And it was not posted anywhere that we would be paying a 20% gratuity

    All meat was served RARE, Bit medium rare, not medium. Bloody and oozing. Except the parmesan pork, which I was so excited for, but it turned out dry. We have veen there before several times, but something has really gone downhill. Starting with the fact that you are met with a sign telling you you have 90 minutes and then have this reiterated by the snappy hostess. The whole evening felt rush and like it was in a timer. The servers, which were usually efficient and personable, now rush around trying to get as much food out as quickly as possible. The salads were good, and the feijoada was food, vut we likely won't be back. It is a pity, but so not worth the cost. Doesn't feel like a special place anymore. Also, FYI, a pretax 20% gratuity on a party if two that goes directly to the corporation, not the server is ridiculous. THAT should be on a sign at the front and easily found in the website. Very disappointing.

    Unfortunately the place has gone downhill since our past awesome experiences. Most of the red meat was overcooked and dry, pretty sure they subbed the tenderloin for a different meat… no bacon wrapped turkey (still on the web site). Had to ask for the sides that come on the table and the potatoes never came. Iced tea never refilled unless we asked twice. “Only my second night ever as a waiter”. Auto 20% service charge kept by the house is an insult. Staff dressed so nice but Older unkept sloppy unshaved man appeared to be managing the staff and didn’t seem very nice. Rib eye was awesome and the salad bar was excellent. But for $65 a person plus drinks and 20% service charge, the meat should be the star and it wasn’t.

    At first the servers were slow bringing the meats around. We actually had to say something because we kept getting skipped. Our server, Patrick, was nice. The meats to us were just ok. We have definitely had better. We also were not pleased to find out we could only use two of our Groupons. The server said that it’s not explained well on Groupon. If the staff knows that the wording on Groupon isn’t correct they need to either honor it and/or have Groupon fix the wording. I would have never bought four Groupons had I known we could only use two. We had a party of six, including two children. The salad bar was awesome.

    We went right at 5pm so it was not crowded or loud. The service was really good. I was a little disappointed in the meats though. Some were pretty rare, not medium rare. Some had lots of fat and hard to eat pieces. I have had better churrasco.

    The Grill from Ipanema is a great restaurant to visit. The food is excellent. The variety is out of this world. The salad bar is almost worth the full price pf admission. The beverages are at the low end of the price range. And the staff is eminently friendly.

    Waited over 15 minutes at our table to even have a waiter come check in on us. This was maddening given that we were just sitting there, without even water, watching all the rodizios walking by us. And then they have the gall to auto-grat themselves 20% tip. Will not be going back
