Outstanding evening at The Grill from Impanema from beginning to end. Terrific service from all staff including prompt attention at the front of the house despite a line, cordial and attentive wait staff, enthusiastic servers, etc. Despite having an earlier reservation during restaurant week we felt well taken care of. Sometimes in a churrascaria they will overload diners with the less expensive meats first, but we started with the best cuts of beef prepared in a variety of ways, and no one was jilted if we asked to skip a portion. The meats also had a good variety of cook-temps, so it wasn't all rare or well done, giving everyone at our table what they wanted. High recommendation!

Decent food if you want to spend a lot of money. I came here specifically because it was a Brazilian Steakhouse in this area. I’ve been to much better Brazilian Steakhouses at a lower price. Still worth the eat at least once.

We enjoy so many family dinners here because there is something for all of us. The restaurant is always gracious in the way accommodate our medically challenged daughter in a wheelchair who eats barely anything at all. The staff is always very kind, so attentive and helpful. Plus, in addition to their meats, the salad bar is amazing! We have been coming here a few times a year for special occasions over the last five years and just love The Grill from Ipanema!

The guy serving the meat literally passed my table about 4 times in a row for some unknown reason - our card was turned to green. I feel it was extremely overpriced for the small amount of meat we were given & the unimpressive Salad bar selections. The drink I ordered was $13, came in a small glass, and was filled half way with about 5 slices of lime - so not much to sip on for that $13!

I made reservations for 17 my wife's birthday party. This was our first time visiting and we were very impressed. there was some confusion with the groupon and having a large party which was my fault in not reading the fine print but Rodrigo who I believe is the manager was able to accommodate and make this night very memorable. Our server was Excellent and the food was amazing!! we will be back in the very near future.. I'm actually try to talk my wife into going this weekend! if you haven't been here it a MUST do!! HUGE thank you!!! to the grill from Ipanema and your crew!!! JOB WELL DONE!!!

This was my second time enjoying the full rodizio all you can eat dinner at The Grill From Ipanema. If you love meat, this place will knock your socks off. Overall incredible experience. Each selection of meat was uniquely different, and delicious. The service was impressively quick. Each time we flipped our table card from red (puase) to green (feed me), another friendly server would be slicing up a new skewer of meat onto our plates within 30 seconds. Dreams do come true. The dining room was a bit noisy, but thats simply a result of the charged, fast pace environment, full of happy customers.

Wow just wow. I bought a Groupon thinking I’d try a new restaurant and save a little money. Did not expect much because it was on Groupon, but boy was I wrong. I’m a foodie I will pay any amount of money for good food and good service and I’d gladly pay double for what we received. The service was AMAZING they really know what they are doing and even if the food was terrible I’d still left satisfied because they were on top of everything. Hands down best service I have had anywhere. Now the food...wow. The meat was cooked to perfection everything had great flavor and the guys cutting the meat were so respectful and professional. Every person in that restaurant was great. I can’t stress that enough. The salad bar alone I would go for. Everything was fresh and full of flavor. Super clean even with tons of people going through the line. The flavors of all the sides paired perfect with the various meats. I had a cocktail and of course it was nothing short of perfection just like everything else. I drove 80 miles to come and will definitely be back and bringing friends !

I actually sent our son and his wife for a shared (5 day different) birthday dinner. Manager, Rodrigo had the gift card I had phoned in ready for them, welcomed them warmly and most of the wait staff knew it was a special occasion for them. Rodrigo even stopped by their table twice to make sure that everything was going well for them. They had a terrific time and the food selection they said was abundant and wonderful. I thank the Grill from Ipanema for making their Saturday night birthday dining great.

Good food but seemingly understaffed. Waited too long for drinks and wine. Was told at the beginning of the meal that there were 19 skewers rotating that night. We only ever saw 10. Got the check and waited 15 minutes for it to be picked up. What we did get was very good, but overall we have had much better Brazilian steakhouse dining experiences elsewhere.

It has changed owners. And the food, while still good has changed. The pineapple is seasoned differently. It’s not as cinnamon/sugar rubbed as it was before. They have gotten rid of their potato salad. Which was the whole reason I went back! So for me. It’s not a go to place anymore. The meats were amazing though as usual. But with the loss of the pineapple and the potato salad, I am not a clear cut fan. The place is still very much a high our lists just not our favorite. The service was excellent and the ambiance of the place was good.

I have been to The Grill From Ipanema on a number of occasions prior to Friday night, and have always been extremely satisfied with my experience. This time, however, was different. Both of us left feeling ill, and remained that way until Sunday morning. Unsure of the cause, I am hopeful to return again to repeat the pleasurable experiences I had previously known. I believe this wast the first time choosing a Friday evening.

The grill from ipanema is great! I just wish some of the steak would be more cooked. For those who like there steak more on the raw side this place is perfect for you! To me some of the steaks were too raw and when I would cut them to much blood. The service is amazing as well with the view the restaurant has!

Having been to many a restaurant serving churrascaria, this one feels like a tourist trap, and I'm annoyed we got stuck in it.

The "gouchos" bring out overcooked meats, and basically hack the meat off, versus good places where they know how to carve the meats to be the most tender, and the kitchen knows how to prepare the meats to be medium rare, and other variations.

The service was mixed, from one attentive person, to others that ignored us.
I could go on and on, but I'll simply close by saying: if you want good Brazilian churrascaria, go somewhere else, as there are much better options in the Seattle area.
