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.

My friend and I visited Ipanema for lot's o' meat and we were not disappointed. The service was nice and on point when it came to clearing dishes for new plates. The salad/appetizer bar was well stocked with a large variety of vittles to enjoy before gearing up for the meat selection. The top and bottom sirloin were by far,... More

Since I am a carnivore I love this place. All you can eat delcious meats. Even if I was a vegetarian I would love it since they have an amazing salad bar. Have eaten here a half dozen times and loved it every time.

Every single bite, from salad to sides to scrumptious multitudes of meats, and then topping it all off with a tasty desert of your choice. All of the meat has no comparison to anything you have ever eaten. Only thing to remember, Don't fill up on all the other wonderful food before you try each savory meat.

In a group of about 15 guys for lunch. Servers very attentive but food was disappointing. First item chosen was bottom steak and I chewed and chewed and chewed. I wound up heading to the rest room to get a paper towel to wrap my chewed portion and the balance of the steak. I have no trouble eating corn on... More

My daughter took me and my husband and the bar (salad ) has the most interesting array of items. All different types of meat are brought to the table and cut fresh off the skewer .....this will be an experience you will never forget.
