We did not have a good meal at Samba. The salad bar was boring and under seasoned. The meats were all, except maybe the tri-tip, bland. In addition the restaurant was cold and drafty. The prices were VERY expensive; very disappointing. Our dinner for six people was over $450.00--not worth $100.00. We will not go again.

The food was just amazing, lots of variety to choose from the salad bar was also delicious. The service was just the best, everyone was very attentive and greeted as soon as entering the restaurant.

Overall, it was good, meat was prepared right, very flavorfull, chicken with blue cheese was so good! Lots of variety at the buffet, sangria was more like fruit punch but yummy. Would recommend.

I had high expectations and was a little let down. The meat was very tasty and passed by several times. Had to beg (to several of the servers) to have a fish offering. Supposed to have both Salmon and white fish but only saw the white fish one time. Bummer because one of us at the table only eats fish, no meat. The salad bar was weak and not very many options. They also ran out of the good choices and never refreshed them. The drinks were also weak. The place is run down but the location (right next to Redondo Pier) was fantastic! Service was very friendly.

I had a good night and the service was good but the meat was over cooked and was not as good as other brizillian resturants. We were a group of 6 and and the bill was right under 500.00 I thought for that price the food would be amazing. Salad bar was small and the best part of it was the civiche and the stroganoff.

I was surprised to have over cooked steak at a steakhouse. The service was great though. The signature drink was awesome as expected the sangria was a little watery, overall an ok experience.

I remember the food being great a few years back but this time it was just ok. The restaurant was dark and is in need of upgrade. Our waiter only brought our drinks and didn't come back till we were ready to leave. The food is way over priced. I only recommend going if you have a coupon other wise it's not worth it.

I have eaten here several times in the past. I was surprised that the cost had gone up significantly and the quality of the food was not as good. All the red meats were chewy and tough. The buffet food was just okay. Also our reservation was 3:30, and as the sun was going down it began to shine right in our eyes unless you were sitting with your back to the window and had no view. Some sort of tinted shades would have been very welcome.

I had a terrible experience at your establishment. We had to wait 30 minutes after our reservation time. Once we were seated, we waited another 30 minutes before a meat server would serve us fish. We tried to get the attention of the meat servers, but they told us to wait a few minutes. We continued to wait as we watched the meat serves continue to serve the same tables over and over again. We waited another 40 minutes before a meat server came back to our table with meat. We had finished our buffet food before we were served any meat. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and she was furious because she could not eat her meat with her food. We kept complaining to the waitress, but she did not seem to be interested and she told us that the servers could not serve food while the dancers were on the floor. The many times we asked there were no dancers on the floor. I asked the waitress to bring my wife's dessert with a candle on it for her birthday. Needless-to-say, there was no candle and no one showed to sing to her even though we heard the staff sing to someone else a few tables over from us. I felt bad for my wife because this was suppose to be a happy occasion for her and it turned out to be a frustrating evening. She said she will never go back to your establishment. If she wants Brazilian food, she will go to Greenfields in Long Beach where the food and the service is great even though they don't have dancers. There were not enough dancers to cover the more than one section at a time anyway so she will not miss the dancers.

We went there for my boyfriend s 50th birthday and they staff was so nice. We drove there from Pasadena and it was worth it. The food had great flavor and I loved the mashed potatoes. I would recommend this wonderful place to anyone who loves steak. The view is beautiful of the ocean and the Samba show was fun. Will come back here

Food was great, nice atmosphere. They were very slow in bringing around the meats (probably so you fill on the other foods). That being said the waiters/waitresses were great.

Make sure when you make the plan to go to Samba, go knowing you will need to be rolled out! You will eat and eat and eat! It's amazing. The meats are so yummy, my favorite was the bacon wrapped turkey, the fish and the spicy steak. Their salad bar is way more than salad. Mashed potatoes, beef stroganoff, chili, corn on the cobb, the list goes on and on.

Highly recommended!!

If you like the type of Brazilian meat fest really come to your table and slice meat right onto your plate and they keep it coming with all different types of grilled meats, this is the place for you. The real surprise came around 7:30 PM when the music out loud, the light started flashing, and out came three very attractive young ladies dressed up in fabulous Brazilian costumes dancing for us diners.
If you are true meat eater you probably won't spend much time at the fabulous salad bar. However some in your party or the kale eating type, they will be very satisfied as well.
