Rodizio!

Our host asked us what we felt like having for dinner and my sons answered meat. They brought us to the right place. Great service and great meats! Steaks were great and the boys enjoyed the non-stop stream of meat from the rodizio. Servers come every so often to offer you slices from grill... read more

Disappointed. Have heard great things but I should've been wary when reviews note that they don't do a regular steak well when they're a "steakhouse". My friend and I both ordered the radizio, other than 2-3 items that I liked the other options were unremarkable. My friend described the sangria as Kool Aid, it had a pink tinge instead of... More

Came here with another couple upon their choice, I did see that his place has alot of good reviews. Honestly I am not a fan of anything in NJ, I don't know what it is but its just that much better over the bridge. Fernandes is bit of exception, the pricing was very fare and food was not terrible either.... More

This restaurant was excellent. I did the Rodizio while my friends ordered entrees. Nobody could stop talking about how good the food was. The restaurant ambiance is nice too. The area isn't that great but the restaurant has complimentary parking with an attendant so it's not really an issue. I'd definitely go back.

Large busy restaurant, valet parking. Off the beaten pathh from regular portugese hotspots near Ferry street. Staff very accommodating, friendly, ande the food was ok to good. It doesnt compare to a Berns in tampa, a peter Lugers in Bklyn, or a Keens in NYC...But neither do the prices. Nice little salad bar and veggies and fresh potato chips included... More

The ambience and waitstaff are incredible. The food is way above average. We have been several times and this is my first review because we have sampled many dishes. They know how to cook everyrhing awesome....except a steak. They don't know how to get a thick steak medium rare and they tried 3 times. Other than that all other dishes... 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

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. I've even found... More
