Much Better than the Other

I found this restaurant to be much better than the other Brazilian restaurant in town. Interesting, the other place has advertising and billboards all over town, yet this one had much better food. I also felt the "salad bar" was better as well as the sides. I will be back to this one.

Whether you are a vegan or a carnivore, you will have plenty of the BEST and FRESHEST food to make you happy. Salad bar cannot be beaten anywhere, and the selection of meats boggles the mind. All staff members are the best - friendly and professional. Worth every penny...and save room for cheese cake or crème brulée....to die for!!!!!!

Almost every meat sample, except the filet Mignon, was crusted with some sort of salt based spice which really overpowered the taste. If you're on a low sodium diet this is not the place for you. The ambiance was a bit crazy. There were servers running into each other like a pin ball table. Seemed like they didn't know which... More

We loved this place, amazing service, lively atmosphere and astonishing amounts of meat - the top sirloin and fillet mignon were particularly excellent. All for less than $50 a head. We'll be back!

We were taken here for my birthday dinner by my brother/sister in law. Thanks !! You have to start with the meat. Such an amazing variety of great flavoured, perfectly cooked meats. The meat keeps coming as long as your ticket has the green side up. So remember to show the red side if you're getting overwhelmed ! But just... More

We have been to this restaurant 4 times and had great experiences. Even though our bills are $120 always for two people, we came back. This time, the meat had more fat on it than the last times and the dessert tasted stale. I told the manager that it tasted like the dessert was left uncovered in the fridge...very stale... More

Highly recommend if you and your wife want to get away from the kids and away from standard restaurants. A bit pricey, but, well worth it! Servers walk around the restaurant with cooked meat on a large skewer stick thing and serve what ever meat and how much amount you want at your table. The salad bar had a wide... More
