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.

Good but very pricey

Generous salad and fixings bar also designed to fill you up on something other than the beef. Good for... read more

There are many Argentinian steak houses in Florida, but Ipanema uses high quality meat and the salad bar is to die for. Come hungry!!

A new experience in fine dining. If you are a serious meat eater you must experience this place! If you're anywhere near Ocola at dinner time you won't be sorry. It's an "all you can eat" upscale steakhouse. It's hard to describe - trust me- try it!

Ipanema is a special, expensive restaurant where you will leave with three times the amount of weight in your belly that your wallet has lost. We were blessed to have amazing friends who took us to dinner last night. This was our first experience. The decor is lovely with amazing light fixtures that include stained glass and dragonfly lights. Service... More

We had dinner here tonight and everything was great from the service, the huge selection on the salad and soup bar to the skewers of meat served by the wandering waiters. You will get as much to eat as you want, everything is presented professionally and the best service I have ever had. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I met friends for a surprise birthday dinner at this Steakhouse. The salad and entrée bar was fresh, plentiful and presentation was beautiful. My girlfriend and I enjoyed the unlimited salad and entree bar. Our husbands had the bar but also added the skewered meats to their order. Everyone was very pleased with the quality of their...

My husband took me here for Mother's Day, I thoroughly enjoyed the 50 plus item salad bar and even tried many things I had never eaten before. DO NOT think you can eat before you go here to dine, you will cheat yourself of the ability to eat all you want of all the foods offered and available. Men walk... More

Did not get all the meats that were on the menu for that night. Asked several times and the waiter was unable to get us the missing meats. Salad bar and mashed potatoes were slow to be restocked. Very expensive for the limited items we received, pineapple did not arrive until we were paying our bill.

Just left dinner with my husband. It was really nice. I think the best part was our server, David. He was excellent. He was extremely attentive but never made us feel bothered or rushed in any way. Our dirty plates were always cleared quickly. My drink was always full. The grilled pineapple was delicious!!! The salad bar had tons of... More

Amazing food and atmosphere! Very cool place to go for a special occasion but make sure you bring your appetite for all of the interesting foods they serve. All of the meat was exceptional and the sides were equally as wonderful. The service is also wonderful. A gem of a restaurant in Ocala!
