We went here for a friend's birthday. Very classy atmosphere but smart casual dress. Luckily, I hadn't eaten that much before dinner but still wasn't able to eat as much as I wanted. The meat was wonderful, my favorite was the BBQ pork ribs. It can be rapid pace with all the different meats offered... read more

I love Novilhos - if you're into churrasco, this is the best Brazilian steakhouse in the Seattle area. This is a rodizio, which means it's all you can eat. To the uninitiated, churrasco is beautifully grilled meat served on swords. It is a traditional way of preparing meat in several Latin American countries and has a Portuguese and Spanish background.... More

Beware that I am a frequent customer of this place so my assessment may be biased at little bit :) I used to live and travel a lot to Brazil so for me this restaurant has a nice sample of what I experienced in similar rodizios in Rio or São Paulo. The meat cuts selection is very nice and balanced... More

I went with four other people, who were dining on the Salad Bar, I was the only person eating meat, I sat on the corner of the table directly next to the natural path of all the meat servers, However, they were clueless as to when to come by or not, I filled up mostly on the side dishes, I...

I love this place. They do have an option if you are not a big meat eater to opt out from eating meat and just help your self to the salad bar. i will do this next time. It is a bit pricey so it's best to go for lunch instead of dinner. Dinner is more expensive. They waiters are... More

I was driving home from work and followed the restaurant's van for a few miles. It made me very curious to visit the restaurant. Very good food! One price gives you endless salad bar, main dishes and skewers of meat from from the grill that just don't stop coming until you flip your disk over. The food was fresh and... More

I took my husband here for his birthday dinner at his request. We were visiting from out of state, and wanted something "special" for our celebration. I have been to brazilian steakhouses IN Brazil, and I felt this was right up there! We felt special from the moment we walked in. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent!... More

We went to lunch here and ordered their fixed price signature meal. The price is reasonable at $27 per person. The restaurant is nicely furnished and the atmosphere is refined and quiet. I would have preferred a more festive mood, given it is a Brazilian steak house. Anyway, the salad bar is acceptable and average. I tried the different meats... More
