This place is amazing. The service is exceptional, there a multitude of people waiting on you constantly and preemptively, all the staff are great, pleasant, efficient and knowledgable. The food was amazing, the rolls and crispy fried polenta were to die for (we even ordered some of the rolls to go). The salad bar is very fresh, varied, unique and... More

This restaurant has amazing food and even better service! I've been to several Brazilian restaurants, but this was superior to all of them. Their salad bar is excellent, I loved the smoked salmon with a basil sauce. All of the meats for delicious and perfectly cooked. The drinks were delicious as well. Some servers even escorted us to our car... More

nice place and it is exactly the same kind of restaurant that we have in Brasil. Yesterday I had the one of the best picanha steak/sliced outside Brasil.

We really enjoy this restaurant, having been there several times now. The salad bar is one of the best we have found to date. The meats are very good and fresh as you only choose what you want when you want using the "coin" you use to "stop" or "go" for service from the Gauchos walking around with the different... More

Even though this is a meat fest, there is so much quality food on the salad bar, that even vegetarians can eat good. Vegan would be tough, though.

Everyone goes for the meat, and it's definitely good but they also have a salad bar, good caipirinhas and amazing New York cheesecake. Try it. It's the best dessert they have.

Ate here Christmas Day and it was very good. The gauchos are very attentive and will put meat you don't want on your plate if you accidentally leave your card flipped. I've been to other places where I've left the card green and not had that happen. The salad bar is good and restaurant is nice.

Maybe this place is really good, but I can only rate it on my one and only experience and this was on Valentine's Day 2014. So maybe if you go any other day of the year it is nice and relaxing hopefully. I have to imagine this must be the case since normally when this many people rate it good... More

The food was good, service was alright for a super busy night. The only flaw thing was the wait, some people seemed to be impatient about the wait saying they had reservations. That was the only thing everyone complained about, everything else was at their usual level, plenty of meants. We were next to some other couples who were pretty... More
