Amazing food, friendly staff, not a fan of the serving policy

Food is amazing, no doubt. and worth the money. A few things bothered me. first, they seem to decide when you are "finished" and they just stop coming to your table. then, after some time, the waiter approaches you and asks if you want to try anything "else". Then I got the check. my friend forgot... read more

We came here on the recommendation of some friends from Seattle. And are we glad we did. It was an incredible experience. The food was phenomenal, and the service was even better. When we come back to Fort Lauderdale this will be the first place we visit. Go light on the salad bar so you save room to try all... More

Oh my... where do I start? The moment you walk in here, you will be greeted by the scent of smokin grilled steak, pulling you in... Real churrasco experience. Meat are always served hot and seasoned. They serve quality meat, great flavor and awesome ambiance to pig out and unleash your carnivorous side, Grrrrrar....

This is a meat lovers dream. The salad bar is filled with so many delicious dishes that you want to taste everything, but don't ! Because the selection of meats are all spectacular and you can eat as much as you'd like. You will feel like you won't want to eat for a week after you leave! It is really... More

We had a great Friday evening with Friends. I have been here before and the food is always great but this time was different as we had a wonderful Sommelier who recommend some awesome Washington wines that really made the evening special!

Went here for my birthday and I had a great time. The food was great and the service was better. The manger came over to make sure we are enjoying ourselves and see if there is any special request. Some of the meats were a little dry because I like it well done but the second and third! Time it... More

I had no idea what I was getting into or what to expect. This was my first time to a brazilian steakhouse and it was fantastic! It doesn't have a normal menu. There are those guys who come to your table and offer you all kinds of meat and no limit to how much you can get. For me it... More

Our waitress knew all about their selections and offered several good suggestions regarding drinks and deserts etc. She was very knowlegible and professional. Drinks were always filled or asked about,... More
