The food, the service and the ambience are always excellent here. Whenever we have a birthday or special occasion, we always look to make a trip here. Their house special, picana is outstanding once tried, you'll likely never want a different cut of beef again! Very tasty!

Everything was absolutely fabulous - the food, the service, the ambiance - till the very end when the waiter took our credit card and... disappeared for 15 minutes. We had to call the manager on duty to find out what was going on. She checked, came back and explained, that internet went down and they couldn't get the payment. It happens, of course, but it would've been much better if they could keep us informed (and not wondering who is taking picture of our card front and back :)).
It's a great restaurant, I'd be happy to recommend it - just needs a little training for waiting stuff.

Didn’t feel totally welcomed in your establishment. Service at 1st was very diligent with service, but service slacked off very drastically once we started dining. Took long periods of time waiting on certain meats & seafood. Had to inquire several times what’s going on with our food that we would like to taste. Overall started well, but didn’t meet the mark at the end of our visit. Guest served after US where treated with far more respect and urgency than US...

The steak & lamb was great. The chicken was ok but not quite as memorable as the other cuts. The service was execellent as well from the hostess to the management staff checking on us and getting things to the table if we felt they weren't coming around fast enough. I feel the value is..fair, imo places such as this border overpriced however great service levels help to supplement any difference in what a "better price" may be able to offer as far as overall satisfaction. Overall we do plan to attend again over other options in the area, I like the location and subtleness of the environment over more casually known restaurants of similar make up.

We have been eating here for about 6 years now and have always enjoyed it - even though we live about 30 minutes away from it. The ambience is much better than Fogo de Chao. Salad bar is pretty standard fare, however their meats for the main course is far above average. I highly recommend that you sample their "house special" cut of picanya (top sirloin.) It is the tastiest of their selections and I've gotten so that I only want to eat the picanya - although most other cuts of beef are fine too. Wine selection is very good. This comes with some of our strongest recommendations - I think you will enjoy it if you like Brazilian steakhouses.

I had a reservation for Valentines Day. The hostess said our wait time was well over 45 minutes. People were entering the restaurant with sagging clothing and hats on sideways. I have dined at this location numerous times but this was my wife's first visit and "wow"were we both very disappointed. We had to leave to dine at another restaurant.

Great food and great service completely ruined by the shock of the bill and bad business practices. I will never return to a restaurant that charges for water and serves it without the waiter asking first if you wish to pay up $5.50 for an already opened "natural spring" bottle sitting on your table. Sorry. All tables were set up with the open bottled water and I feel most guests were too embarrassed to complain on Valentines day. Mandatory 18% gratuity added but check out slip had another empty line for an additional "tip". Noticed that many guests were waiting at the bar anxious to be seated but unbeknownst to them, half the tables were already empty and ready for a second seating. Probably a great method to boost the bar bill. I enjoyed the food and leisurely pace of the meal service but will not return.

We were on time for our reservation, but the hostess sat multiple other parties that arrived after us, none of which had a reservation. We were forced to wait nearly 20 minutes to be seated in the restaurant, despite it being less than half full.
Salad bar offerings are a 1/4 of Fogo and Texas de Brazil.
Drinks from the bar took nearly 30 minutes.
The worst though were the meat offerings. I had to ask for filet as they do not bring it out automatically. It was served cold and was extremely tough and chewy. The scallops, which I also had to ask for, tasted old and spoiled.
Never again will we dine here!

my wife had reserved a table for our 17th wedding anniversary yesterday december 31 @ 3pm. we arrived a little early at 2:30 and totally expected to sit at the wet bar for a couple of drinks before our dinner. upon checking in with the hostess she informed us that they would be closing at 3pm to prepare for the dinner service. wow talk about the disappointment, and i then said well let’s go somewhere else! and my wife said “really” then the hostess informed us we could still eat and that we would not be interrupted. we deside to stay. WE ARE SURE HAPPY WE DID!
this was the best dinner we have had in a long time simply and absolutely the best food. this was our first time here but not our first Brazilian style restaurant but it is now our favorite one. our server a very nice lady well mannered and very attentive our water and beverage glasses never went empty and she always had a clean plate waiting on us and it shames me that i can not remember her name cause she is a credit to your staff and restaurant. i will message you her picture. she also took our pictures for us in front of the pretty christmas tree, which was our first pic this year in front of a c-tree. we can not wait to visit your restaurant again and bring friends and family.

We dined late on Christmas Day after the Steeler/Texan game. Not a lot of people but the food was still amazing and the staff was even more amazing! Way better than Fogo. Only thing I missed from Fogo was the polenta fries but their potatoes au gratin was very good. Definitely worth the travel time!

The food was amazing as always. The service was perfect. The servers knew the kinds of meat and how each person in our family liked it cooked and kept coming to make sure we had exactly what we wanted. I wanted scallops and they made sure that they brought them as soon as they were ready. Love this place!

Staff needs to learn what the red and green cards mean. As soon as we sat down from the salad bar, staff kept bringing meat to the table, even though all our cards were red. We asked them on at least 10 separate occasions to wait until we were ready. We had a party of 8, and they would force themselfs between the guests and interrupt us to ask what kind of meat we wanted. It was very rude and annoying to the point we wanted to leave. What was supposed to be a nice night ended up making my guests mad. For a bill over 500.00 that should not happen.
