I've been to similar restaurants in Miami, New York, Chicago and in Seattle and this is one of the better. The service is excellent; we were taken care of by Valeria and Tammy who were both personable and attentive. What I found to be superior to other similar restaurants were the salads and other items - especially the mushroom risotto.... More

First tip, don't fill up on the buffet. There is a huge selection of salads and sides and it's easy to overdo it. The mushroom risotto was great. There is 16 different types of meat to choose from and they come to your table on a skewer and they slice it onto your plate. There is a "coin" on the... More

Wonderful salad bar and lots of great meat entrees, the crusted pork and sausage were great. A meal in itself was the salad bar - huge If you make it to desert there are great choices here also

We went to Novilhos expecting great food. We were looking forward to the meats. The salad bar was just ok not a big selection limited variety. The frist beef selection that came to our table was over cooked tough and rubbery hard to swollow. The second time around was worse it was at that time my husband said, I will... More

Went here for my birthday dinner with my wife. We had a blast! Wonderful service, the gouchos serving the cuts of meat we liked the best came over to our table every time they had a fresh cut to give us the opportunity for first cut of the meat. It is expensive, but you get a great meal, with your... More

We went here for Father's Day which was a memorable experience. The food was excellent. It was my first time to a Brazilian Style restaurant. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Price-wise I think that dessert should be included! It is expensive so go very, very hungry so you eat a lot of meat! Lol

It was very good for the Seattle week special. The salad bar was very good. They had lots of different thing not on a regular salad bar. They had cold cooked asparagus, broccolini and saute mushrooms. They also had some hot dishes like fish, chicken, meatballs and mushroom risotto. The second course was garlic mash potato and fried plantain (both... More

This is a restaurant for meat eaters. You can buy salad bar only, but it is expensive for a bunch of green stuff, even though there was fish (tilapia and ceviche), The restaurant wasn't particularly busy, but it was early (5pm) and they seated us in a part where we weren't alone (good). Since we hadn't been before, they explained... More

This place is one of the few churrascarias that approach the Fogo de Chau chain's quality. This is an excellent spot. Highlights: Awesome meat that's very skilfully cooked (mostly--sometimes the parmesan pork is wanting a tad bit). Their best cuts are their ribeye and their lamb and they knock both of them out of the park! Salad bar is modeled... More

We purchased a Groupon and I saved it for my husband's birthday. Traveled an hour to the restaurant which would've been hard to find without my GPS. Parking was easy. Although there were many empty tables in the restaurant, we were led to the least appealing table - immediately next to the kitchen door (not 3 feet away). Being our... More
