The young man That greeted us, and helped throughout the dinner… I’m not sure if he was a host or possibly a manager… But he was so awesome and so personable. He is the entire reason that I took the time to write this review! The yuca bread is delicious the selection is great as well.

We were there because Houston Restaurant week. The first time we went over there, the waiter and the host won't allow us had any Lobster Bisque that indicated clearly should be include in the Houston restaurant week. We didn't argued with them. The second time we went back again, this time we can had the lobster bisque but they deliberately make it so salty, nobody even can finish one small bowl. We went there again because we had a very good experience last year but this year seems like really bad.

Overall the restaurant was pretty good. The manager on duty was more attentive than our waiter which was nice. The House steak was just ok but the Top Sirloin was tasty. The potatoes and salad bar were very good but the black beans were a bit tasteless. The first round of the pork ribs were over cooked but we asked for a different batch which were better. The bacon wrapped chicken and sausage were favorites. We’re not sure that we would revisit this Brazillian steakhouse over some of the others we have dined at

The food was delicious! The Sunday brunch plus meats was our choice. It’s a lot of food for merely $40. The salad bar is kept replenished & offers a great variety. The brown sugar & red pepper bacon tastes like candy it is so delicious!! The meats are constantly coming and are delicious. You can have it to your liking (medium, medium well, well). Only down side is that drinks & desserts are not included in the cost. If you have a soft drink you are charged per drink. That’s kind of a bummer cause they do not tell you until you get your bill. It would be nice to have something sweet on the buffet instead if a separate price. Maybe they could consider that down the road but overall a great spot to have brunch or a girl’s date!!

Salad bar is always fresh. Service is attentive and quick. I'm sensitive to alcohol and love lamb so I asked if they could just make one piece of lamb chop for me without the wine marinate, they were so kind to cater to my special request. We sat for two hours but we were never rushed. We had a good time celebrating birthday and learned to say that in Portuguese "Feliz Aniversario" . Everything was excellent. Thank you!

I scheduled a business lunch with colleagues: 3 female and 1 male. We (the 4 females) were seated while our male colleague was coming in from the parking lot. The waiter commented that if this was a girls' lunch. Then he asked if we wanted carbonated water where we said tap worked. Then he asked if we wanted tea/soda where we said just water. Finally, he asked if we wanted alcohol and we were all annoyed by saying water is fine and we don't want anything else. We felt that was pushy and he clearly did not get the hint.
He also didn't want to fill water at my male colleague's glass because he wasn't seated. Yet he was literally entered the dining area when I asked them to fill up his glass. Instead, the waiter put the glass upside down and that was so disrepectful. Finally, the person who served the picanha, he positioned the skewer to the left of my tong. As he was slicing the meat, I had to reach over for my tong before getting the meat. He made a sound like he was annoyed as why I was reaching over. Well, if he paid attention where my tong was, he should have positioned his skewer on the right side of it. Food and ambiance were good but there was definitely room for improvement. I expressed this to the GM and he defended the waiter by saying he was trained to inform all guests about the beverage offerings. We gave this place a try as it's close to work.

The salad bar was great but in the category of Brazilian steak houses, the meat was poor. Not well cooked or flavored. There are plenty of steakhouses set up like this and they are way better. Now I will say we did go on a Wednesday night so maybe the chef is not the same one used during peek times but was not impressed with the meat.

We could not have picked a better place to bring in our first Anniversary! The food was absolutely delicious. The waitstaff was extremely attentive and we hardly had to wait when our card was on green. Although it was HRW, we chose to stick with the traditional menu as many of the cuts of meat we enjoy were not included on HRW. One of the waitresses even served us dessert with Happy Anniversary drawn on the plate.
Overall, we had a great experience and cant wait to visit again.

Paid $50/ person for the halal menu and was only served each meat only once even after I asked for it more than 6 times for a good 30 minutes. Extremely poor service and not worth $50. There are other similar halal places available that truly honor unlimited refills on all meats. Never again will I visit this place again. Not worth it!

Very friendly staff, engaged well will patrons. Salad bar is very nice, not as elaborate as other "Churascian Steakhouse" but all the essentials. The meat keeps coming.... Didn't try any of the chicken or sausage, but the cuts of beef and lamb were excellent. The Picanha and Bottom Sirloin were the best!! You can't beat the flavor of the Bottom Sirloin. Served an array of sides, but too much salad and beef to both with the sides. The little bread rolls with cheese are addicting, they are sooooo good when served piping hot. Nice wine list with reasonable prices. Disappointed they didn't have any Uruguayan Tannats on the list.
