I made a reservation here for our anniversary. When we showed up, we were seated instantly at a window seat. It was a little bit chilly by the window, but I was so pleased with the view that we decided to stay at that table. The food was excellent! I'm not a huge meat eater. I did enjoy the meat, but I enjoyed the salad bar even more. So. Many. Choices. I tried one of everything, and it was all great! My fiance is the meat eater, and he loved all of the meats. I will say most of the meats were medium to medium rare, so if you can't handle a medium steak, this isn't the place for you. The Titans were playing and won their game (not that I care about sports), but they had fireworks at the end and we were able to see them right from our table. It was a nice addition and I really appreciated the window table we were given for the night!

We were celebrating our 40th anniversary and enjoyed ourselves immensely. We went for the Saturday brunch and it was excellent! The staff was very attentive and the salad bar was one of the best I have ever seen. It is certainly the most expensive restaurant we have been to in the last several years...but as they say, you get what you pay for.

Do yourself a favor and try it out!

The restaurant was fantastic! I liked the decorations, and the atmosphere, it was very welcoming. The service was so fast, I barely got my fork on food before more was brought to the table. The food was great, it was all cooked perfectly. The salad bar had so many options, I like to see that. There was something for everyone. I highly recommend this place!

The food was very disappointing. Much of the meat was overdone and unseasoned. For a family of 4 spending $250, it was well below expectations. I can not recommend it.

If you are a true meat lover this is a great place to get plenty of it. A little slow on the beginning wine service but they got things back on track and we were off and eating. The sirloin was best but everything else was great too. Including the whitefish! Go light at the salad bar if you don't have allot of room for food.

went for special 59.99 diner. After 15 minutes with cold sides and never saw a piece of meat. fed chicken and sirloin and after we finished a piece of ribeye came by an hour later. Never saw filet or any other steak besides sirloin which you can get better at any steak house. Had to get manager to finally get me a drink because our server was too upset at previous table stiffing him as he ranted over for a while. I later saw why the low tip. First and last time

The food is always delicious and the service is great. Unfortunately it is just way over priced. We went new years eve. Same food as usual (well they did bring a small piece of tuna by) and $20 more expensive per person. $150+ for 2 people just is not a good deal.

My boyfriend and I went to Rodizio not knowing that they had made the price increase for New Year's Eve. We were deviated and when asked to see a manager Kodi came over and was so nice and helping. She completely understood our mistake and offered us regular price. Afterwards, the food was incredible and the staff was very friendly. At the end of the night someone had paid our bill for us. Definitely and great place to go!

Wasn’t impressed. Came for our anniversary which happens to be New Years. Got a call a few hours before dinner saying their price would be $59.99 instead of $38 per person... went ahead with it since it was New Years and the day of, so it’d be impossible finding another reservation.

Unimpressed by the food. Literally all the filet mignon was all over cooked :( the only meat that I really enjoyed was the ribeye. So basically paid $60 for a slice of ribeye.

Also could barely get the attention of the waitress, to order drinks once we did get food.

This is the 4th visit here and I have to say the people are outstanding to deal with. Friendly, easy to explain the menu options and working hard to please the customer. The food is tasty, if your a carnivore, it's excellent selections and quantity of food items will not disappoint. I really enjoyed the salad bar, various choices to choose from, authentic Brazilian items, along with never ending quantities. If you like the Brazilian-style of eating, you will like this place. If you're comparing this to Bob's Steakhouse or The Palm, it's a completely different experience.

Great experience with delicious foods. The service was outstanding and our waitress explained everything well. Oddly, as you walk past the restrooms you smell fresh linen. I thought this was great considering we had to walk by there with our sides and salads. We devoured more food than our stomachs could handle and the desert was scrumptious. We will definitely return.

Way too expensive for what it is. They do encourage you to fill up on bread and salad, so it keeps the meat consumption down. Drinks were watered down.

Took a lady on our first date. We needed an environment to talk. This place is quiet and nice. Only down side was our conversation kept being interrupted as they brought food. That wasn’t a bad thing but I wanted peace to talk in private but I also needed them to bring the meat. Ha ha. Great restaurant, great food. Recommend having conversation after you get your food if you don’t want to be interrupted. Other than that, great restaurant.

We took a party of 6 to Rodizio the night before Christmas Eve. Everyone in the group totally enjoyed all of the food and our server was great. If you have been to Texas de Brazil or Fago de Chao, it is the same concept. By comparison, Rodizio serves the same level and quantity of meats, the salad bar is a little smaller but has more hot dishes and best of all, it is almost $20 cheaper per person. Will definitely be back!

Our server was amazing! We have been to other brazialian steakhouses in the past, however, had never been to Rodizios before. She still took the time to explain everything, made great recommendations, and was always available when we needed something. We went on a Saturday evening and food kept on coming and coming! There was no shortage of food whatsoever! The included hot bar and entree bar was always well stocked, and everything tasted amazing!! Great value! I’ve already recommended this location to two of my friends. We definitely will be returning!

Service not good at all. We were seated our server took our drink order and we never saw him again. We had to ask another person to get more to drink. She got us some one in that area. Then that server was around us the whole time never offered to check on us till we asked some one else.
This lady wasn’t concerned there was even a problem oops my bad basically.
The guys bringing the meats around all very nice and polite.
This was our second time dining here the first time was much better far as service.
