We loved both the outdoor and indoor seating areas. Outdoors there is a good-sized patio with a wall and waterfall/stream to distract from the nearby freeway, as well as live music on the night were were there. Indoors is a large, dark, open space with color-changing lights on ceiling. The salad bar had a nice variety (yes, I went to... More

This is our second "brazil" type grill, so we knew what to expect, and this was completely different than we expected. Their pricing is strange, 3 different prices for the food you are "allowed" for the price, which I found annoying, because it took the guys that had my "type" of purchased meats forever to get back around to our...

This place has everything! Friendly wait staff and fantastic food with an atmosphere that can win over a potential date. This is also a very family friendly place designed for everyone. Everything that I ate was just mouth watering. This place is tough to beat. The only thing is that it is a little spendy but what price would you... More

This was the 2nd Brazilian Grill I've eaten at now & it didn't disappoint. My husband & I brought our two kids (ages 5 & 9) for supper on Aug 3rd. The service was great & the food was outstanding! The kids liked it more than I expected too, they were entertained by the servers coming around constantly with the... More

Beautiful ambiance. This is one of the nicer places to eat in Sioux Falls. I enjoyed the atmosphere! If you are looking for something new, a different dining experience than your usual this is the place for you! A little pricey but worth it. If you are interested in trying new things, a different variety of foods, than this is... More

I have NO negative comments on this restaurant. Inside there are twinkling stars along with ever-changing colors on the walls. The waiters and waitresses were ever-present; we had a main waiter but all the others attended to us as well whether it was to fill our water glasses or remove dishes. The waiters were constantly droppng off slices of meat... More

So far, this is my favorite place to eat in Sioux Falls. There's an extensive soup and salad bar and a regular menu, but what this place is know for is the servers, called Gauchos, who tour the dining room with various meats on a skewer. It's rather like a meat-buffet where the food comes to you. They have three... More

My husband's first choice when its his turn to pick the restaurant. The meat is very salty and it is an expensive place to eat, but the food is excellent, you will leave full, and I like the atmosphere. It's a fun, special occasion- type of place to eat at!
