AUTHENTIC BRAZILIAN STEAKHOUSE
The Grill From Ipanema in Seattle is all about Rodízio, a popular Brazilian style of enjoying dinner among friends and a truly unique dining experience. Rodízio offers a wide variety of different cuts of grilled meats slowly roasted in specially designed charcoal grills. Served continuously by "passadores" or "gauchos" with food brought on skewers or carved to order tableside, servers make their rounds until guests can’t take another bite. Dining at The Grill From Ipanema also includes unlimited visits to the "mesa de frios" (cold table) for an array of cold cuts, cheeses, and exotic Brazilian specialties.

    Very few vegetables on the menu. If compared to Texas de Brazil or Fogo de Chao, this would lose every time. Those places have a real salad bar. This salad bar is a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10.

    After a very poor experience at Texas de Brazil, we decided to cross our fingers and go to the Grill with the hope it would make up for it, AND IT DID!! Service was attentive, the meats were excellently prepared and the overall experience very positive. Appreciate that they made up for the underwhelming time I had in Tacoma! Next time we get the urge, we'll head to the Grill from Ipanema!

    - I made a reservation 1 week in advance. I got there 5 min before my reservation time. I had to wait additional 25 min to be seated. - I did not see fish, only shrimp. I did not see ribs. I did not see pork, only sausage. - I did not see feijao, or feijao tropeiro. - the picanha was good. - the grilled pineapple was good. - the fried bananas was good. - the caipirinha and batida Ipanema were also good. - the server was fantastic as always.

    The food was SPECTACULAR. The service was HORRIBLE. The server came by, gave us water and said he would be back in just a minute to give us a rundown on how the experience would go… then didn’t come back for an hour, not even to take a drink order or refill our waters. Luckily, because this is set up where they come around and bring you food as you go, we weren’t left hungry. I understand that staffing is a struggle these days, but it was clear that he had forgotten us and then was too embarrassed to come back. There was a 90 time limit on the table and we ended up staying for almost 2.5 hours purely because we weren’t paid any attention. We spent quite a bit on a nice new years dinner and this was not the level of service we expected for that price tag.

    The food and the people bringing it were awesome! However the waiter told us he would explain the system after he sat us down then disappeared came back 15 min later to get drink orders then got flustered when my wife dropped her ID and said I'll just come back after another 15 min we got our drink order. No explanation on the system so we had to figure it out. When I went to find him to pay he was extremely rude. He ruined the experience for us luckily everyone else was super friendly

    We come here every chance we get! The service is always above and beyond. The meat selections are varied and delicious. The sides are just as well made and delicious. They also have an excellent drink selection. Highly recommended for a good night out in Seattle! Extra points for staying open during the winter storm.

    Wow, first time here and we loved it. The pork sausages are incredible, so save room for those. The chicken drumsticks are also excellent and other grill offerings are fantastic, we enjoyed it so much we didn't make it to the salad bar, but we will be back for sure.

    Worst experience I have ever had at the grill. I think they were trying to conserve food… about every 20 minutes someone came around with some meat and gave us such a small slice that it was gone before they left the table. We were there for two hours, and I left hungry

    For a Brazilian steakhouse it was terrible. Sometimes waited up to 20 minutes for a gaucho with more offerings. The only thing that came By our table frequently was pineapple. The meat was mostly bland. I even went and spoke with the manager about the poor service and he says “I’ll be right with you”. He brought sausage to the table and said not one single word. We left still hungry after 1.5hr. DO NOY WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY

    The service was a bit slow. We had to wait for them to rotate meats, sitting idle for extended periods of time. They were out of lamb and bacon wrapped beef but the price wasn’t adjusted for it. The atmosphere feels less fancy compared to Fogo de chao but for some people, that might be a price. I would note that the price is exactly the same. With that said, the servers were generally friendly. The meats themselves didn’t taste high quality at times. The fillet mignon was great but the ribeye was not very tender and didn’t taste like a fatty ribeye at all. All in all, the value for money was pretty low, in our opinion.

    We did not have the same memorable, belly-stuffing experience as we've had in the past. We've always loved coming here for special occasions. After dinner last night, we'll be finding a new place to do that. We left feeling very let down for the price of the experience!

    Second time dining at this restaurant. There was an employee that was sick and serving meats to the tables. We noticed they had wiped their nose close to their glove that held the meat, twice. Same employee was also seen in the bathroom blowing their nose with gloves on and washing their hands with the gloves still on. Afterwards they went to the meat window but they didn’t return to the floor to serve customers. But can only imagine how often they changed their gloves if they were washing them in the bathroom. These instances were mentioned by family members after we had dined. Definitely would’ve mentioned this to the manager if we had spoken about the employee before leaving the restaurant. Other than the compromised meat, the rest of the food was great, worth the one hour drive.

    We go here at least a couple times per year. This is the first time we have experienced less than exceptional service. Our waitress didn't come to our table for all most 15 minutes after we sat down. One of the male servers ended up taking over for her. The first try of meat didn't come around to us for almost 45 minutes. I normally have only fabulous things to say about Ipanema, but this last visit wasn't great. It was upsetting. I am hopeful it was just for that night. I understand many places are short staffed at the moment.

    This was my first time experiencing a Brazilian Steakhouse in Washington. The service was decent and the food was good no doubt. How ever it did take some time for us to get our drinks when it was at a slow & steady pace. The food quality was cool, my previous experiences with Brazilian Steakhouses in comparison to this one I would recommend it a 3/5

    Unbelievable! Pros: 13 cuts of meat Perfectly cooked (if you wish rare or well done, they make it happen) Cheese balls are a treat by themselves Parking across street Cons: They don't have enough servers, but reality is they have a lot of staff that keeps bringing you food and refills, so not a big deal I am going back asap
