Description: Ipanema Brazilian Steak House is a Churrascaria in the finest sense of the word. Our twelve authentic cuts and presentations of meat are seasoned with salt and roasted rotisserie-style over mineral coals imported from Brazil, basted continuously by their own natural juices. Served by traditional roving Gauchos, they are complemented by an opulent salad and vegetable bar, delectable desserts and delicious wines, beer, and cocktails.

Had my first Ipanema experience yesterday. It was Sunday brunch. The interior is old world elegance at its best, yet still relaxed. Our waitress explained Rodizio which is where you indicate by which side of a disk you leave face up on the table whether or not you would like to try more of the meat dishes that serves come...

Their salad bar is outstanding good eye appeal, fresh, not run-of-the-mill. Choices of several meats Beef, pork, lamb, chicken and sausages. By the way the servers do not bother you. Just turn your card over to red and they stay away. The rotisserie pineapple is sooooo good. They certainly are not over-priced for what you get. However, you must arrive... More

We had a really nice time the last visit. We were a party of 6 and had no issues with the service, staff and had a lovely meal. We will return this weekend again and hope to have another memorable dinner

Food was ehh at best. Service was good if you like being interrupted every few minutes by a person with a large skewer of food which they take slivers off of it for you if you ask. I guess if you like this sort of thing it may be alright, but it wasn't good in my opinion. Way overpriced, mediocre... More

We have dined here off and on over the years and also done cocktail hour only here. A great place to go if you have clients to take for a different dining experience. Pricey to go to every week but nice for a company party and even if you go for the salad bar alone, it is worth it. It... More

Had a night out with our family for dinner. The food was amazing, staff very courteous and attentive. My son surrendered after eating so much delicious food from the Gauchos. Be sure to visit. We will return again.

My husband and I decided to try out Ipanema for our 35th anniversary. It is expensive but wonderful for a special occasion. The food was excellent and obviously plentiful.

We shared a wonderful night out for our 50th Wedding Anniversary at this restaurant, it was lovely! We have been here before and really enjoyed the food and the ambience, so we thought it would be the perfect place to celebrate! The staff is very attentive and the food is exceptional!
