On a positive note, the salad bar was pretty good and the wait staff friendly. But, I typically go to a Brazilian type steakhouse for great beef. Very little beef was served, mostly chicken in various forms, pork, lamb, sausages and tons of pineapple. We dined in the restaurant about 1 1/2 hours and had sirloin brought out twice, then... More

Visited during Downtown dining week - dinner was $25 on special. Was very good, however if you are thinking you will be receiving huge hunks of meat that is not the case. Salad bar was very good - the food was good but it is not like sitting down & having a steak dinner.

These restaurants are famous for their salad bars, and this one was great. You can easily make a meal of this salad bar. I particularly liked the seafood salad, and this evening they had beef stroganoff and mashed potatoes on the salad bar, both of which were great. As for the meat that comes to the table, it did not... More

Endless meats and excellent service. Staff is friendly and playful. Ambiance is great for a date, family, or just with a group of friends. Salad bar is pretty extensive as well. Lastly don't forget to join the Birthday club, you get a free ticket to come back.

If you've never been to a Brazilian restaurant like this, you have to go at least once. I prefer Sabor. I think they had a better salad bar. The meats did not impress me that much. it's nice that you can have as much as you want, but I didn't find them that flavorful. I'm not sure I'll return. The... More

Our small group chose this restaurant after reading the Downtown Dining Week offer for $25 dinner. The description of the salad and hot bar as unlimited 30+ offerings was intriguing as was the multiple choices of meats. It was certainly fun to try all sorts of new foods plus familiar dishes and meats at no ' risk' of disappointment since... More

Groupon has taken us to yet another tasty destination. There was no way we could afford this place otherwise. I wouldn't say it was our best meat-centric meal ever, nor our best meal while visiing Milwaukee but it was good and a fun experience. The place is pretty inside and very clean. We went on a Wednesday night because the... More

As stated, this was our first Brazilian Steakhouse experience. We went on a weeknight so we could enjoy the meal without crowds or feeling hurried. The restaurant is very attractive and comfortable. Our server brought the appetizers and explained how the service operates. We enjoyed the extensive salad bar. The gauchos were very efficient in bringing the skewers of meat... More

Atmosphere was casual and fun. Salad bar with unique items and tasty healthy food and also rich items you may do salad bar only or celebrate your inner carnivore. We'll worth the price for a special evening. Go on a weeknight and the service is great. Even the house wines were good

I read most all of these reviews after I bought a Groupon for Rodizio Grill. I wasn’t sure what to expect, having gone to Sabor a few times a few years ago and then hearing that several people in this forum said that Sabor was so much better. Here is the honest truth, from both my perspective and my wife’s:... More
