We come here every year for my birthday, and every year it is absolutely worth the time, money, and the drive.
THE LAMB WAS COMPLETELY UNEDIBLE AND RAW. THE OTHER FOOD WAS ALL SUPER RARE.
Honestly it was a great place for a date night and I loved the service! I for sure would recommend this place to people trying to have a good dinner!
We LOVE the rodiZio grille! They are amazing, and have wonderful food, they even gave us complimentary cremebrule because we had just got married! The only improvement I would say is that I wish they could bring around the Parmesan steak more often! I do feel like being further away from the kitchen you don’t get the options as often. That would be the only improvement. Everything else was PERFECT
Service was great but meat was dry and not seasoned. Mashed potatoes taste like instant. Overall food quality was poor
We had a large crowd for dinner. Everything was so great! The food was fantastic and the meat was always hot and fresh at our table! We will definitely be back!
We love this place thank you!!
This was our first time here and it was awful !! We love Texas De Brazil so I guess I had to high of standard for this place but the food was horrible, the salad bar was a joke and I practically paid $90 dollars for pineapple because That was the only thing I thought was great !
Lindsey - Thank you for giving us a try. So sorry to hear you did not enjoy your visit. We pride ourselves on providing exceptional value and offer the widest variety and most abundant salad and side area. Additionally our "Five Star" beef program is so successful at producing delicious beef our competitors are copying it. We get many favorable reviews and comparisons to our more worthy but more expensive competitors and it's regrettable that we did not win you over like so many others.
Our service was awesome. I believe our servers name was Laz but I am not 100% sure. No matter who came over to us they were very knowledgeable and friendly though. Perfect evening
Taylor - We appreciate your visit to Rodizio Grill. Thank you for recognizing Laz and the whole. He is an exceptional server and prides himself on exceptional hospitality. He and the team will appreciate the recognition. Happy we could provide a "Perfect Evening" for you!!
Love it, it was our first time and the waitress was awesome.
Natasha - Thank you for dining with us at Rodizio Grill and sharing your five stars on Open Table. We hope you will join us for many more visits.
I was blown away by the service and the food was oh so amazing!
The food was awesome, but for that price I think non alcoholic beverages should be included in the price! A lil loud and a lil crowded, but was worth the experience!
Everything was delicious. The meats just kept coming, and the staff was awesome. My only complaint was that we sat near a window that was blowing in cold air from outside, because the windows are extremely old in that building. Besides that everything was stellar. I would definitely recommend this to anyone on the fence with trying it.
I always wanted to try a Brazilian steakhouse so I took my son here for his birthday. We were all mostly happy with the food. The salad bar is huge, but I didn't eat much from it wanting to save room for the meat. The meat came in waves with a short delay after we arrived. The beef and fish were awesome. Chicken was okay but the pork was dry. The appetizers brought to the table by the waitress were also really good especially the little cheese breads and the yucca. The only drawback was parking. To use the valet, we were told we had to park on the street before the valet could park our car. We wound up paying $30 to park in a garage up the street. My son and I had already been seated by the time my husband handled the parking. Next time I would park somewhere else and use Uber/Lyft to downtown.
I never leave a bad review but this was awful. Do yourself a favor and go to Texas de Brazil. This was the 2nd time we have tried this restaurant and left with the same sense of dissatisfaction and regret. We arrived at 5:30. Meat servers were scarce and had only chicken and pork. We waited 30 minutes to actually get steak and it was rare so had to wait another 20 for medium to well done and they were only giving one type of steak. Vegetable/Sides bar was empty of a lot of things each time we went to attempt to fill our plate. Our server was no where to be found. We needed drink refills. Meat for the children. A manager saw me looking around and came to the table. I explained we had waited 30 minutes and he took care of it. We ordered coffees from our server and she never returned. No coffee. We pulled another server to get desserts. We finished desserts and still no coffee. We had to look for and wait for our check to even leave. She charged us for 5 adults when we had 3 children with 2 under 12. We had to request the bill be adjusted and also not to charge us for the 2 coffees we never received. The table of 10 men beside us were so obnoxious and loud we couldn’t even talk to each other. Tables were too close together so our chairs were constantly bumped. Waited 35 minutes along with 12-14 others to get our car out of valet in the very cold weather. Wasted literally $220.00+ on nothing. Left cold, hungry, with a headache and disgusted that we did this a second time to give this restaurant another chance. Never again.
It was very good except all of the noise but my family and I had fun
The meat is amazing. The salad bar was good. I especially like all the options of different salads and cheeses. However, the hot sides buffet was less than stellar. The pastas tasted generic and the other options didn’t look very appetizing. If the quality of the sides matched the meat and salad, it would get 5 stars. I also think that the price was a bit high. We did enjoy a small bite of filet, but that cut only came around once. The other steak/meat options were cheaper cuts. Some tasted better than others. I will say the Sunday brunch was amazing on a previous visit and will definitely be returning for that.
Love all of the beef and Mac and cheese. Delish. Loved the bacon
Please work on the decor, cleaner floor...etc. I just expected the place to look nicer.
In town for a quick visit and had never been to a Brazilian grill before. We were not disappointed, service was excellent as was the food. The servers even provided a little entertainment, playing bongos and other instruments for short periods. Would definitely visit again!
It was really good food! We left super full and happy!
The food great! The margarita was on point! Staff was awesome!
We love Rodizio! This was our first time for brunch, and we will definitely go for brunch again.
Probably the worst experience I have ever had concerning service. Drinks were empty so long we had to stop eating, server forgot about the birthday we were celebrating, server was ectremely unattentive.
Food was amazing as always but was extremely disappointed in our server.
We were placed in the first corner seating area and the servers were very slim. Only certain ones were coming into the area. We were overlooked for the majority of the night. What foods we were served were good. There was a 35-40 person party behind us that made the night miserable. Drinking and obnoxious. They too were very upset of the lack of gaucho servers coming into the area. Just a very expensive night for half done service. Our server was great but apologetic. Apologies didn't lesson the blow to the pocketbook.
The food was excellent. It was a fun and different experience to sample many different meats prepared different ways, we loved it! Don’t fill up on too many sides or salad, there are too many other amazing choices to fill up with. We, unfortunately did not save room for dessert but they looked as equally wonderful.
The price was a little on the high side (especially the drinks, two small mixed drinks before we were seated $24) but we don’t eat out a lot so it was completely worth it to us.
All of the staff were friendly, professional and accommodating.
The atmosphere was more Brazilian party (loud singing and drums for many birthdays!!) and less quiet romantic but know that going in and you will enjoy your visit with them.
The only negative, and it’s a small one, was that we made reservations to avoid a wait and we didn’t get seated until 20 minutes after our reservation time. The restaurant was very busy and our wait was soon forgotten/forgiven.
Overall, the experience was terrible. There were no kid friendly options, so my youngest child didn’t get to eat. We had to pay $39.99 for my 12 year old to eat one small piece of steak, because it was the only piece that was not medium rare. We had to ask 6 times for someone to bring a certain item around. Service was horrible, and our check was wrong, but the manager would not correct it. Needless to say, we will never return to this establishment.
Our family has celebrated MANY birthdays, retirements, promotions, etc @ Rodizio and it has always been GREAT!! The food, service, location JUST CAN'T BE BEAT. I really appreciate all the attention the staff pays to special comments I make with my online reservation.
Food was great as always and amazing staff
Best pineapple and steak ever. The ham was alsome
The service was not good we were in the area of were the salads were the front part was busy by there was not much staff coming with meat for us we had to wait a long time .i got a cold coffee was not impressed.But the meat we did get was delicious.
Depends on where you get seated. I have a higher review when sitting in the front part of the restaurant. You get put in the back, things slow down.
Very nice place and great food. We arrived early but they were able to seat us right away.
Didn’t acknowledge special occasion. Salad bar was horrible. Food took forever in between because was sat in the far corner where nobody could see us. Food was bland. No range of temperatures in a steak house...either well done or way too rare. Very disappointing. Definitely not worth the money.
