Wide variety of options to choose from

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.

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

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
