I've been to the very best Brazilian steakhouses in the USA like Fogo de Chao, Texas de Brazil and Chama Gaucha. Unfortunately when you've eaten at these great places the Carnival Brazilian Grill falls WAY SHORT of the mark on taste and quality. This place charged $30 for the dinner while other top places charge $50. I would have much... More

It is a lot of fun for a party 4 or more. This a restraurant with style. The experience was something right out of the movie.

This is a meat carnivore's dream place. You can order off the menu or order all you can eat meat. The price is not too bad if you are planning on eating some serious meat. Lamb, beef, chicken, pork and all types of beef steaks are available. The salad bar is included and excellent. The atmosphere is very nice, with... More

Ate here with friends recently. The food was okay, but service was terrible. After being seated we waited for 10 minutes for our server. We had to finally flag one down. No bread was offered & server seemed confused when it was requested. Would not eat here again.

I thought for a moment that we were back in Sao Paulo, The meats were great, as we expected. The kids menu was certainly adequate. Few of the servers spoke Portuguese, which was a disappointment, but overall, if you have a few extra bucks to spend, and you like great meat, this is the place to go in Sioux Falls!

My granddaughter got the most expensive buffet option and ate the shrimp and grilled pineapple which she loved. I thought what I got was ok. It was extremely pricey.... They have a salad bar and then they had as sides mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables. The meat had some sort of seasoning which I did not like.

We went on a Saturday around 5pm to beat the crowds. We ordered the full rodizio and it was great!! The service was prompt and friendly, the selection of food was vast. I will say that the meat service was fresher as the restaurant became busier. I would recommend going during a busy time as the food will be hot... More

Unbelievable food. I read other reviews and got the Full Rodizio. You won't be disappointed. All the meat you could eat and even more. Why go to a steakhouse, when you can get so many type of delicious meats, all together. My favorite was Picanha, their form of prime rib, but even better. Yes the roasted pineapple is to die... More

Average place, salty meat brought to you on a stick and sliced at your table. Meat is good most of the time but the pineapple is probably a house favorite. Place is quite busy every weekend so make a reservation. Drinks, alcohol, are expensive. Wine is average priced. They have a huge salad bar that is basically canned or pre... More

I was there for a work function, but came back with my husband because the food was so good. While there are a couple vegetarian options on the salad bar, this is mostly a restaurant for meat lovers. However, don't miss out on the roasted pineapple with cinnamon and sugar coating - it's awesome. The servers are very attentive. Also... More
