There's plenty of food specially if you opt to get the salad bar menu so be sure to come hungry. There is a variety of meat and types of marination. Some are very good but there are some that I don't care for. Choices! So that's the key. You can just keep getting the ones you like. So another key... More

My family of four (including three big eaters who love meat!) thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. The staff is friendly and the service was excellent. The salad bar isn't the biggest I've seen but the variety and quality of food was very good. We couldn't resisting trying some of the items even though we were really there for the meat!... More

I had a good dinner here - the selection of meats was good, the filet and the sirloin were fantastic, the bacon wrapped steak was great (what isn't improved by the addition of bacon) and the sausages, chicken and chicken hearts were very nice. The salad bar was also pretty extensive with some nice grilled asparagus and some other nice... More

I agree with other reviewers that the place is overpriced. Unlike some other reviewers, I like their salad bar. Meat options are also ok for me. However, considering the limited variety of meat, the price is too expensive.

typical 'authentic' Argintenean Churrascaria but well below others sampled in the US. Salad bar was minimal - ok you don't go for that. Meat was just not that good - plenty of course - but for every steak that went by there chicken, chicken sausage. The steaks were either overdone or close to raw - I prefer medium rare but... More

The place is nicely setup and there are plenty of food but the quality of the meat is mediocre at best. It is way over priced as far as I'm concerned. I would rather pay $60 per person and go to a very nice stake house with a nice piece of meat and the goodies and pay half of that

The food is very good and seasoned well with a good variety. The service is always great but go hungry. The menu is slightly expensive but worth the experience.

Decent food, reasonable variety of cuts of meat, good service, but compared to Fogo de Chao I thought it was a little expensive given the final result. As I said, good service overall, though it was sometimes necessary to get the attention of one of the servers if they had a cut you had been waiting for - and we... More

Took my partner here for a special dinner. Not disappointed at all. Good variety of meat, all grilled/cooked beautifully. Partner is gluten intolerant, they were able to advise accordingly. One of the said bar items she chose the Manager came over and cautioned on, and we had not even told him. Excellent attention to detail. Wine by the glass also... More

We went for a birthday lunch with 12 people. The restaurant and staff were very accommodating. They had our table ready a half an hour before we all got there. Us early birds enjoyed a brew from their fairly nice bar menu. We brought a cake and special wine which they worked with us to store and serve. They actually... More
