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.

Ipanema has very good food and excellent service. From the time you walk in the door you know you are in for a great experience. The salad bar is not as large as some Brazilian steakhouses, but very good. You can have a nice romantic couples dinner or eat with your family and friends in a very nice atmosphere. I... More

Went to celebrate a birthday with family. First of the waiter was amazing, he brought us our drinks and also bread, yucca and fried bananas as soon as we sat down. We started with the buffet and it has over 50 items but make sure you try the hot first because the food is so good. The cold side is... More

Very unusual atmosphere, excellent food and great service. The luncheon buffet is only on Friday and is well worth the trip. The salad bar was exceptional as were the meat choices. The gauchos that serve the food are friendly and efficient.

My fiancé and I came here with my parents as a special treat and I just fell in love with this place. The salad bar is very good. The meat portions are much larger than any other Brazilian steakhouse I have been to. My fiancé was disappointed that they did not have any filet, which we prefer. The meat was... More

This is not a bargain restaurant compared with others in the area but it is so worth every penny especially if you are a carnivore.

Have eaten at this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. The selection of meats cooked to succulent perfection is extensive and plentiful. The salad bar offers several unique items as well as standard fare. Side items (soup, beans, stroganoff, etc.) are excellent if you are not in the mood for so much meat. Pricey, yes, but not when...

Ipanema is wonderful. Be prepared to feel stuffed. The service, decor, and food were all very good. The food, as already mentioned, is wonderful. The salad bar has a great variety. If you enjoy salad, you can choose from prepared salads, marinated veggies, fruits, fresh veggies, meats, and cheeses. Also, are a couple of selections of soups, rice, and beans.... More

Meat, Meat, and MORE Meat. This place does a lot of things good. But the one thing it does great...is stuff you full of 8+ different proteins (MEAT). All you can eat MEAT (2 different kinds of chicken, 2-3 different kinds of Pork, 3+ different kinds of Beef, Lamb). Food: GREAT Cleanliness: GREAT Service: GREAT Bar: FULL
