Lots of decent meats!

Bolero is always a hit with my friends who are good eaters, brazillian bbq is like a hybrid high end buffet. The salted lamb, beef fillet, pineapple, and ribs are my favorite. Can be on pricey side at about 50 per person with a drink, so good for those who can take the time and enjoy many... read more

Awesome as always. Don't waste time with the salad bar, less room for meat. Don't waste your time and have anything other then "The works" (can't remember what it's called). At a certain point everything starts to blur, shortly followed by uncontrollable meat sweats. By the time i paid my bill (worth every penny) and found someone to carry me... More

We went there after church hoping that they accept walk ins and yes they do! I love their chicken thigh wrapped in bacon together with other Brazilian BBQs served and cut in front of you, cakes and desserts are yummy especially their waffles, salad bar, steamed shrimp and mussels are yummy too! A lot of choices😄 we paid CAD 21.95... More

Better than Goucho but... Service was average, one of the staff knocked over a glass of water while carving meat. She did not seem to care....just wanted the rest of the table to take meat. We asked for napkins to clean the mess up and had to ask three times. We had a late reservation and that made the meat... More

We went here to try something different. The service was great and the meat was great, the salad bar left something to be desired. I am not sure if it was just picked over or that it is not the focus. It was sloppy with very limited options. This is an issue for those who come with the meat eaters... More

It was my company Christmas party. For meat lovers this is probably the best place to go. Selection excellent and very tasty. I personally like the pork ribs but other dishes were very good as well. Do not recommend to go with a little kids ,its just place for adults. Place is popular so can be too busy during evenings.... More

The whole experience was excellent. From the time we walked up the staircase on the left hand as you enter the main entrance shared with Open Sesame all the way to dessert and dessert wines. It was a small group of seven guests with diverse backgrounds and personal preferences. A few well travelled individuals and some home bound as well.... More

I personally LOVE this restaurant. I don't really understand the bad reviews lately. Whenever I go its usually with family or to celebrate something. The food itself is expensive but SO worth it, I highly recommend the grilled pineapple, parmesan steak, and fillet mignon if you are a meat lover. I usually get the full rodizio which is more then...

salad bar was good, we found the meat generally overcooked and cold and the deserts were tasteless. We have visited a Brazilian bbq place in Arizona and it was excellent and more authentic - this kind of food is a great experience if done well, but I wouldn't come back here.
