The waitress forgot about us, she just did not come and we had to stand, after 20 minutes, to go to order the dessert. The tip is 15% included, we asked to remove it and we gave it to another waiter, who was nice, that came to assist us.
Food is good, choice moderate. The elder man at the barbecue is moody, he became nice after we left a tip. It's a place to go, good value, but service should improve. The location is great.

This was the best meal we had while visiting the area. We paid around $35 for all you can eat, which included a bottle of wine (2nd bottle was no cost either). You could get beer or soda instead of wine. The meal featured various meats - tilapia, beef short ribs, steak, pork loin, pork ribs, chicken, bacon wrapped stuffed pork, and more. There was a salad bar and various vegetables from the grill - roasted potatoes, tomato halves with cheese melted, grilled onions, and a few more options. The server can also bring mashed potatoes or fries if you wanted. All COVID guidelines were being followed. Our server fixed the salad while we told him what we wanted on the plate. You picked up a plate at the grill and told the cooks what you wanted, and they would put it on your plate. Various desserts were offered too. We got flan and cheesecake. Both were great. It was my boyfriend's birthday, and they brought out an individual cake with a candle and happy birthday written on the plate. It was delicious too.

The service was excellent. Our server was Mister. He was awesome, funny, and attentive but no overly so. He recoginized when our glasses were getting low and promptly filled them.

The restaurant is in the Bayside Marketplace on the 2nd level. It is on the end near the ferris wheel. Our table was by the window looking out over the marina. We could watch the boats, water taxi, and all the people going by. It was the perfect date spot. We will definately be back!

Meat was very dry and left on grill way too long. It wasn’t burnt, just really dry. This never happened before at location but bad first impression for wife though.

There were flies flying around at the salad bar and the table next to us was so loud it seem to be ridiculous. The meat seemed like it had been on the grill for a long period of time and was chewier and harder than normal. I love corn and the corn sucked straight up. I would however give my waitress five stars she was there for us at all times and very fast. Other than her and them having bathrooms at Bayside this place sucks.

The food and atmosphere was overall pretty good. The only thing I would say is that they are a tad disorganized as I had a reservation at 9PM and when I got there they had no idea where they were going to sit me. The food tasted good but for the amount of people they can sit in their restaurant they should have two sections to be able to get the meats instead of one. It can take you a good 10-15 minutes just to get through the meats line which in my opinion is a little inconvenient. Overall I would still give this place an 8 out of 10 as everything was good and we enjoyed ourselves while there.

I’ve been to many rodizio‘s in Churrascaria’s and this by far has been the most resembling a expensive Golden corral. The food quality was poor at best the meat we’re all serve the rare unless you ask them to cook it longer. The quality of the meat was not good at all the only redeeming quality is if you order an actual fillet or a sirloin from your waiter or waitress. The sides were all underwhelming at best. I would not go back to this restaurant

Great experience with the food, service and price. Very well located restaurant with a lot of food options. I took my family to celebrate my engagement and the waitress went the extra mile with the champagne and a nice cake for her. Definitely coming back to this place whenever I’m back to Miami

Not the waiter fault, because he had like 10 family tables to himself, so service was EXTREMELY slow. had to ask for everything like 5 times. for the price you pay, something as simple as linens would be nice on the tables. we had a party of 8 and 5 of us got sick afterwards.

Not too much of a good selection for vegetarians. The other 3 in my party did not like any of the meat selections either. Too dry. The service was hardly there. 2 adults and 2 kids $150 and that was with a slight discount for the vegetarian order

Admittedly, I should have done more research on this restaurant. If I had, I would not have gone there. All of the food is buffet style. The cold food was acceptable. After a salad, you go stand in line for your meat. If you don't speak Spanish, you will have difficulty communicating your selection. I did not find the meat particularly tasty. In fact, it was bland. Not at all what I was expecting.

I'm not that fond of buffets, and did not realize this was a buffet when I made the reservation. Although most of the food choices wee labeled, the meats at the grill were not and it was confusing. The best thing I can say is the desserts were amazing.
