Everything thing was great! Just a couple of minor things of my Mac and cheese was cold and our server was very courteous and polite, just needed to come around a little more. But really no big deal because it was very busy.

The service was great! The food just kept coming and we were able to try almost all the meats. We actually got full before we got to all of them. Definitely warrants another visit! The reservation with Open Table was a good way to go as well. Very please with this restaurant!

Thank you so much for amazing night. We celebrated two birthdays… My husband and mine with our family and it was truly amazing. We love coming! Most certainly we will be there again… For our anniversary in June! You guys always make it super special. All of the food was amazing our servers were there promptly every time! The restaurant is super festive and everyone seem to be having a wonderful time. The food bar is always a great way to start your meal and I have to say that my absolute favorite thing that they bring around to the table is the pineapple!

Rodizio's is a wonderful place to celebrate special occasions with family and/or friends. It's a pricey dinner, but the food is delicious. They have valet parking which is important for 2nd Ave. in Nashville. I highly suggest reservations, and allow some time for Downtown Nashville traffic.

I was a bit disappointed with the experience. I will say the Meats were delicious - but the rest of the experience, not so good.

I made reservations as it was my son's 13th birthday. Upon arrival we were escorted to our seats and the gentleman who seated us made small talk with my son about his birthday and asked if he wanted all the "singing" etc.... That's where it went downhill. My 13 year old of course will say no, it wasn't his decision. It was an adult decision and we made the reservation to celebrate, and that's what we wanted as part of the celebration.

Our waitress was high and hardly came to the table. Other servers took our plates and we had to ask if one could bring us water. He was gracious with a smile. The guys serving the meet were friendly enough as well. Going back to the birthday thing. I at least expected a candle in the cake.... But no, and she was so pre-occupied, the whip cream was running all over the place and the ice-cream was melting.... clearly it had been sitting a while.

In all fairness, as I mentioned, the meat was great. The salad bar had a large selection but I've seen better Brazilian buffet selections, so I don't give it an exceptional rating.

The website said business casual - Not required.

I was really quite disappointed.... :(

They stopped serving meats even though the table signage was green for over over 7 minutes. So we took that as a sign to say we will are stopping serving you. So when saw the meat servers were passing our table and serving tables around us, we asked for our check and left.

The waitress was super nice and checked on the table often. The food was very good and the salad bar was outstanding!

I am gonna have second thoughts about coming here again in the near future.

We definitely enjoyed our meal. Our server was not as attentive. Even though my husband changed his drink order before she brought it, it seemed like she was upset. She didn’t check on us as much. We had to get her attention just for him to get more sweet tea. She was going around another table with a pitcher of water and never came to our table asking if we’d like more water. Once our bill came I noticed that she still charged us for the original drink he ordered, when I asked her if she could fix it since he got tea her demeanor changed. I didn’t think she put much effort to provide great service for us. This was our first time at your establishment. Other then this we will definitely try a second visit with a different server if possible.

We were seated at a table in the rear just as you come down the hall past the restrooms, we were bypassed for the meat options. Waiters continuously walked right by us and we literally had to stop them in order to get meat.

The meat wasn't terrible, but it certainly did not meet the expectations that come with a $39/person charge. The salad bar and sides offered simply were not good and completely unimpressive. If this had been priced at $25/person my review might be a little higher, but for the money you can do a lot better somewhere else.

Rodizio was very good, but was it $120 good? (Dinner, tax, tip, valet, tip for valet).
Not really. It was a good experience though.

We dined here after a theater show on a Saturday evening. It was an early dinner and the dining room was not too busy when we got there. The diners were lined up and waiting to get in when we left.

I will start with the good. Our server, Kennedi, was fantastic! Her energy and sense of humor were a great fit for our crew.

The drinks were OK - but the wine list was a disapointment for folks who usually get wines by the glass - not a lot of good variety.

The bad - the sides and salads were a bit disappointing. Not much variety. The meats that were brought around by the carvers were also a disappointment. We waited forever for filet and when it came, much of it was either over cooked and crunchy or under-cooked and bloody - from the same server. Much of the meat was so fatty that we had to keep a plate on the table to carve away the fat and get rid of it. The ham was so over-cooked that it was tough and chewy.

For the money, there are much better restaurants to visit in Nashville. This was a huge disappointment.

Love to go for late weekend brunch. There's great brunch options at the food bar. The salad bar is the best ever! My favorite is the coconut slaw. Brazilians really know how to combine foods uniquely that are flavorful. My husband and I enjoy coming here and know that there will be plenty of healthy vegetable options.
