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.

First time family was altogether for a dining out experience in 9 years! The ambience was very warm and inviting, we arrived early evening so initially it was a little quiet. As the evening progressed with the live music (which was amazing it became a little noisier but not chaotic). The food was so fresh and delicious if chewing is noisy then that’s about all you heard. An occasional whoop for the live music. Not a run of the mill salad bar, really tasty choices-all different and nothing tastes alike. Service was amazing! Very friendly with a balanced flow. We all ordered rodizio and none of us regretted it. You have to come here!

Dinner was great and the music was good as well. I probably won't go that often just because I don't normally eat that much meat but it was a great evening and perfect for meat Lovers!

So much great food, nicely laid out salad bar, reasonably priced cocktails, great staff. Pace yourself; you're given small pieces of meat at a time for a reason; unless you are going stricly for salad, don't make a meal of it. Great place to be a carnivore! When was the last time you were encouraged to sing at the dinner table?! The live music was a great touch. No room for dessert, but it looked tasty!

The food and service were wonderful. The wall of windows creates a fun, bright ambience. This place is great for dates and summer dinners. I look forward to coming back again and again. It is a nice date location but equally great for a friends get together.

The food was excellent. My only complaint is that some of the items came around four or five times as much as others. But, to be fair, you could always make a request for a specific item if you wanted. Overall it was good and we’ll be back.

Hands down one if my favorite places, it's a carnivores dream come true. A bit pricey, but you can always grab a Groupon.

My brother and I were gifted a groupon each, they only honored 1 (and a half). Yes, that information was in the fine print, however the groupon's were gifted to us without the fine print. Other than that the food was fine, the value was good, the service was really slow (constantly waiting for the next meat), the location/view is bad, and the general mood was overall demure. I LOVE Brazilian steakhouses, I would recommend FOGO DE CHAO in Bellevue every time over this one. Overall underwhelmed and slightly disappointed.

Food and everything was great, but sometime the meat guy will past us, even tho we had our paper green. Maybe because we went during a busy time. But they should have a better rotation. We didn't really get to try everything. Overall I would go again, but on a less busy day.

Your food was excellent, our waiter Paul was awesome and those that took away our empty plates were very friendly and prompt. The issue we had that drastically reduced the ambiance was the way the hostesses dressed. What do the 4 of us remember from our experience.....the hostesses attire. Sorry but that area needs to be addressed.

Nice restaurant, great service and food. However, if you are pregnant I would suggest to wait until your not pregnant. The meat served is pink and you are limited to what meat you can eat. Also, I didn’t see that there was a Groupon discount. Just expect
to pay over $100 for two adults as they do charge one rate for food. Very pricey as it is overpriced.

We really enjoyed the whole atmosphere, and the food. great salad bar, don't fill up too much though, wait for the meats, 17 different types of meats. I thought most were very good, the bison was definitely my favorite, had that twice!!!! they also had live music, and that added to the already nice atmosphere. I think they are family owned and operated and all staff that we encountered were amazing!!!

I was really excited to go because I love Brazilian steakhouses, I hadn’t been to one in Seattle yet and thought it was time. The food was good not great and they only gave a small sampling of some of my favorites I.E.(Brazilian cheese bread, fried plantains) There was no pricing for the food only the drinks, I expected to pay a couple hundred for the meal but getting a $320 tab without tip was a little shocking. Love the music and scenery but probably not going back. I would recommend for people that don’t have a bottom to their checking account.

Great food, great atmosphere, service was stellar with our water never getting close to being low and almost drowning in meat. Took my girlfriend here previously before she announced to me that she wanted to go back and so we marked her birthday with two of her friends at The Grill From Ipanema. Everything makes the meal so very worth it and we will be looking forward to coming back again soon.

The ambiance of the restaurant was very nice - lively and upbeat, with a live musician performing covers of songs from all over the place and even taking requests! Reservations are definitely needed - people who turned up at the same time we did were asked to wait an hour for a table. Even with the reservation, we had to wait 15 minutes past our reserved time until we were seated, however you do not order anything off of the menu (other than drinks) so we didn't have to wait for food.

The food was very good, although it was also very salty, hence the four-stars for food. There is a very large selection of meats, each different and each very tasty! Be warned though, a lot of the beef-options are only cooked rare to very-rare, at least on the night that we went. The salad bar is a great place to eat lighter dishes, although some of the options there were also very salty.

The service was outstanding. Our server, Miguel, was to notch, and accomadated all of our needs, as well as explaining how the restaurant worked. He even took note that it was our anniversary, and brought out a special dessert. Thanks Miguel!

The value of the restaurant is so-so - yes it is all you can eat but it is expensive considering you really fill up on the salad bar. It's good because you can try all sorts of different cuts of meat, and each one tastes different. We had a Groupon for the dinner, which helped out, although for the price-per-head (especially if you order drinks) there are much better values around.

All in all a very, very pleasent evening! The biggest standout was the service, which was top notch!

Fun place for any group size! Definitely not a place you can come to often for health reasons (soooo much salt and meat), but this is a fun group experience for the occasional get-together. Good variety of meat options, some prepared better than others, all pretty tasty. Great waitstaff and customer service.

i really wanted this dinner to be so much better than it was.
The selection of meats was decent, however the meats themselves were rather tasteless, really undercooked and generally poor cuts of meat.
The service was decent, the poor guy providing dinner entertainment was trying to get way more buy in from the 6pm crowd than was realistic however which was sad to watch.
The desserts were probably the only high point of the night. I would recommend those, but for $150 for two people, i would have expected a better selection at the salad bar, and better cuts of meat. And more than two of the little cheese filled dough ball things. The grilled pineapple was on point however.
