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.

Very expensive meal but interesting foods are available

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... read 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!

Had a wonderful dinner with friends and family. The "salad bar" is a misnomer, there is a large selection of soup, salad, grilled vegetables and other starters. The waiters periodically bring new choices to the table and carve in your presence. This can go on all night until finally one must say, "no more". This was a most enjoyable evening... More

We celebrated my grandson's 16th birthday, and we were so impressed with this restaurant! The quality of the food and service was impeccable. Each of the meats that came to our table was more delicious than the last, and all of the servers were very professional, especially Ryan I would suggest this to anyone looking for a special evening out
