Just keeps getting better...

Visit: 01/23/15 We've been here a few times before and while we've liked it every time, but this time it seemed extra good. Maybe it's because I had their Picanha na Braza which is their best cut of beef served until I said "No Mas!" I had recently found out about Picanha and how good it is... read more

I went for dinner with a group of about 25 women. The service was good, the staff polite and friendly, the atmosphere nice. There was no private room so all the large parties were in one room so there could be no discussion. Food just adequate. Good salad bar.

Decided to eat here based on Tripadvisor reviews. Were disappointed. The service was absolutely great and the atmosphere is electrifying. I had the rodizio which was good, but my wife and son had the steaks off the menu. My son ordered his medium rare and it came out medium well. He sent it back and it took quite a bit... More

we were 3 couples celebrating the holidays together here. Unfortunately it was so noisy we couldn't hear each other talk. There was a limited salad bar. Some items were on a higher tier shelf and hard to see. The waiters brought all the different foods to all the tables on skewers regularly. Meatlovers...this is the place for you. We all... More

Been dining here for years and the food is second to none. Dined on a Saturday night, prime time, but reservation was ready and waiting for a party of 8 big eaters. Rodizio's all around and a parillhada de Mariscos (broiled seafood for 2) thrown in for good measure. Skip the salad bar and apps. You honestly don't need them.... More

Went there with friend/family. They have valet parking which is very helpful and keeps the vehicle safe in a gated area (no set charge just a tip when getting the car on the way out). The staff were very polite and we were seated immediately although we could see a line forming behind us. Probably the best Rodizio I have... More

I have been to most all the Portuguese restaurants around the Iron Bound section of Newark. This one stands above the rest. Truly where the locals go. The Rodizio unlike most had premium meats. Not sausages and ribs etc. Even though those are great also but as prices rise you want sirloin, prime rib and roast beef cuts. Outstanding service... More

I was looking for a good place for rodizio in Newark to go to after a game at the Prudential Center. Fernandes Steak House came up as the favorite on various review sites. We were not disappointed. One question I had was the cost for rodizio. I'll answer that right up front: about $30 a person. Another tip is to... More

I had the Rodezio here and it was great. Every cut of meat, poultry or pineapple was flavorful. Service was very attentive. The decore was very interesting. If in Newark, you need to fit this place into your schedule.
