I was looking for a great steak dinner on my last night in Rio and being in South America, it was one of the things I was looking forward to. I found Giuseppe Grill in the Frommer's Day by Day guide and was NOT disappointed. I started with a caipirinha and it was excellent. But the highlight of the meal... More

Our group of eigth had look into this restaurant before arriving in Rio. And it was one of the places on our check list. We were not dissappointed. Great food - good wine, and a very nice place to eat a late dinner as we did. One of the best sirloins I have ever eaten.

A top class restaurant, well managed and excellent service. Good wine lists. Super display of fresh fish and shellfish alongside top quality steaks, massive cuts, buy a single for two people. The house top sirloin was exceptional, perhaps the best ever. Classy atmosphere and reasonable price for what is offered. Book ahead especially on weekends, ideal for a party or... More

The concierge of the hotel we were staying recommended this restaurant, service and food were outstanding, but the total bill was very expensive, which we were not expecting. I ordered more food than I should have, not expecting for complimentary hors d'oeuvre, which really was lovely but just too much. Overall, the experience here was great and my pork meal... More

There are restaurants where you go for the food, other by work imposition and another category are those were people go to see and be seen. I go to restaurants for the first category and from time to time to the second category. Leblon quarter is a beautiful beach quarter of the city of Rio de Janeiro which used to... More

Don't miss this great steakhouse (they also have amazing seafood) in the Ipanema area of Rio. The setting and atmosphere is great and the service was top notch. They were very helpful to us in picking out wonderful dinner selections (and they have some English speaking waiters/managers as well which is great) and our wine too. The whole experience from...

I've been to Giuseppe Grill a couple of times, and the food and the space are really nice, and I'll continue to go back. The only issue is that it is a little pricier than other places of equal quality. I like the location in Leblon.

When you come to south america you are looking for good meats. Giuseppe Grill offered me the best meat I ever had. A sirloin with specific cut from the house. This is a restaurant for meat lovers. For the rest classic cuisine with salads and grilled fish also. Try it. Service was very good also as we had no reservation... More

The meat is fantastic, you can taste the quality of the meat and that they handle it with care. We had a 2 person T-bone steak and it was seriously the best meat I ever had so far. We had a great wine, although they gave us the wrong one, but they gave it for the price of the wine... More
