We took our two sons there for their birthday dinner. Service was fantastic, and the meal was exceptional.

This is our favorite restaurant in Seattle. The waiters are friendly and deliver great food! The meat is the best we ever had and the side plates are also wonderful. This is the place to go in Seattle!

Was excited to try this restaurant again after COVID restrictions were eased up. They removed the open salad bar area and instead opted to bring all the salad and side dishes to your table in small dishes. I thought this was a great idea, though it does seem a tad bit wasteful since we probably would have opted-out of maybe HALF the little dishes. But still worth it.

The meat itself was excellent, as expected. No complaints here except perhaps that the meat servers were coming VERY fast and we barely had time to savor one slice before another was coming. Better than too slow, but it would be nice not to have felt pressured into eating quickly so as to not miss out on a fresh slice of meat!

The table service was not attentive - I think they were simply understaffed at the moment. Seemed to only have 1 server for like 10 tables?

Overall great experience and delicious food.

My family and I had to sit apart, because of the new rules, however it was still great. Having the salads and sides on the table was such an added benefit!
Such a great way to spend a birthday.

We absolutely love this place! A little bit spendy, but so worth it! And they have adapted to the current Covid situation so well. They are currently bringing the salad bar straight to your table, so you stay seated. They still have so many options for steak and other meats! We are so excited to go back!

Glad we happened to chose to eat at Ipanema the last day before the corona virus shut down all restaurants. For our last meal out of the house for an unknown time, we were super happy to eat ALL the meat!
Lovely service. Servers were professional and pleasant. Meat was wonderful.

Wonderful selections of meats grilled to perfections. Loved trying all the new flavors. The staff was most pleasant and accommodating. Don't fill up on the salad bar (which was hard as it had such a varied, excellent selection) as the meats keep coming and you'll want to enjoy everyone of them. We'll be back!

In the odd chance I end up eating out, this is my go to place. I love the service and people seem to really enjoy themselves and the food in this welcoming ambience. My wife and I used a Groupon ($30 for $60, I believe) for the first time here and it felt like the servers were accustomed to them since it wasn’t a hassle at all.

Pricey if you don't have a groupon. Compare to other brazilian steakhouses, it doesn't have as much options. The unique thing they have here is the grilled pineapple, but everything else is just standard. SErvice was good though, very attentive.

The meat was very good, and the salad bar was excellent. You will not go hungry, and the staff is always attentive. They have zero issues with groupons- I think every around us was using a groupon.

After visiting similar restaurants in the area, we tried this one 3 times recently, and my wife and I concluded that this one is the one if you want quality meat. Except for one piece out of 3 visits, meat always tasted good here, and last time it was so tasteful and delicious that we decided that The Grill from Ipanema deserves a good review from us and here it is.

Not the best but not the worst. We expected a little bit more pizzazz for our buck, especially $55/head and $13 for 8 oz drinks. The buffet was disappointing, but the meat selections were great. Three times I asked for plantains and three times I was forgotten. We used a Groupon to check this place out and I realized only $28 was taken off, versus the $60 that I paid for. I was already half way home (Olympia), before I realized the error. Definitely not worth coming back. I’ll stick to the one in Tacoma by the mall.

For my 2nd experience at a Brazilian Steakhouse it was far less than my initial experience. I would not recommend this restaurant. ESPECIALLY if it's a special occasion as you will be disappointed.

Well salted, wonderfully roasted over charcoal, crispy on the outside, nice and medium rare on the inside... the flavors were amazing and intense. Perfect for those on a keto, paleo or low-carb diet (just skip the pineapple, salad bar or the plantains if you're doing that), and everything tasted fantastic.

Easily the best Brazilian steakhouse we've ever been to, and we've been to a few. If you've been to one, you know the drill - green means "more meat!", red means "stop". And you certainly get your money's worth - in both variety and quality. I'm a total foodie, and love complex dishes with elegant palettes for elegant palates... but sometimes? You just want to go total carnivore.

This was total carnivore. And it was delicious.

I have been to 3 different Brazilian Steak places in the last 2 months and this was by far the best.
