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

Very good place to eat. The food is excellent and very comprehensive wine list for any pallet and budget. Make sure that if you go, you like meat. The salad bar is good, they offer all the trimmings, the meat is great though. The bacon wrapped chicken and bottom sirloin are my favorites. The lamb was only ok. All in... More

Good dinner, but the way to promote business of this restaurant is a fraud; this restaurant attracts customers with Groupon deals that they don't want to redeem, once you arrive to the restaurant, they will say that the Groupon is not valid in this location, that the Groupon is redeemable only at their other location with the excuse that "this...

We tried this place out for the first time this trip and normally we go to the one in downtown Seattle. After eating here this will be our primary stop for BBQ when we go back. Our friends loved it as well and agreed that it was better then downtown Seattle. Can't wait to go back. The best bread out... More

Great food and excellent service. It is not often that I would be in two restaurants dedicated to meat within a couple of weeks. Well, was not hard when the invitation extended from dear friends for an evening of good food and fellowship. The initial impression of the salad bar was good with it being a meal by itself. The...

We ate ate the bar for Happy Hour at their new SLU location. great service, very friendly bartender. We were well fed on the small plates, lots of meat options that were very tasty. Good palenta fries. We had sticker shock when we saw the prices on the regular menu. We would definitely go back.

During Seattle Restaurant Week, STAY AWAY! We typically love this place and dine here monthly, but were treated so poorly this time. We took our friends to showcase how good it was and it turned out to be an embarrassment. 2 ordered the regular menu and 2 ordered the SRW menu. From that point on the server made us feel... More
