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

This is a very nice restaurant that makes for a fun date night or is great for a special event. Bring your appetite and your wallet. We really enjoyed it!

We were a modest party of 8 who didnt make a booking. FInding parking is easy as you have basically the whole Factoria mall parking lot. The restaurant was busy and for out party we were given a round table. The salad bar is pretty extensive and includes some cured cold cuts and some warm foods also. Culinary delights like... More

I really like the concept and the atmosphere but the food is only ok. Salad bar is very good, meat pretty good but dinner is very expensive at $75ish per adult without alcohol. I wanted to like this more but probably won't go back.

We had a lunch for our company and the waiter dumped a whole pitcher of ice water on my back. He apologized but did not offer to discount the bill at all or make it up to me. That was disappointing. However, the food was excellent. The bar had a nice offering

If I ever dine here again, I have to be better prepared. My friend's husband chose this restaurant for dinner; had I known, I would have prepared for the experience and been able to consume more meat. :) I've dined at a couple of Brazilian Steakhouses, so I know not to get full on the great variety that they offer...

Birthday dinner for 20 year old son - all you can eat steak sounds like a good call right? Saturday night so we expected it to get busy and made a reservation for 5:30 to hopefully beat the crowd. When we arrived, restaurant was slightly less than half full. We were seated in a table surrounded by other tables and... More

Granted you have to be ready to spend some money on dinner ($60.00 pp). But many people do as the restaurant was packed. The food was delicious and the service was really great. A very enjoyable evening - and we are stuffed! The food just keeps coming, and you can keep going back to the salad buffet between all the... More

I had a Groupon and two of us dined at Novilhos tonight and it was outstanding. The restaurant is spacious, clean, and welcoming. The salad bar was way more than salad, there were rices, potatoes, and beans as well as many different prepared salads. I sampled the ceviche (very good) potato, chicken, pasta, beet and mixed salads and a surprising... More
