Went here with the family and the service was horrible!!!!! After we were sat we waited about 10-15 minutes for a server to even come to the table. It wasn't even that busy maybe 1/3 of the tables were filled. We had the group deal that came with 2 bottles of wine, which they switched for 4 bar drinks for... More

There was a wide range of food options. Some were amazing, some were good, some were not appetizing. The pineapple is a family favorite. Friendly staff. But it $250 for 5 was a bit steep for what we got. What happened to the 3-4 meat option that was intermediately priced? That would have been perfect for my finicky teenage girl... More

We love Brazilian steakhouses and wanted something different to do for our anniversary, so we chose Rodizio Grill. Our server was very nice and brought us yummy drinks. I had a sangria that was a specialty of the house. The salad bar was not huge and didn't have as much variety as I expected. It also needed to be refilled,... More

We had originally booked another restaurant for our rehearsal dinner and that restaurant called the day of to tell us they couldn't host our party of 24 people! Panic! Fortunately Rodizio was able to get us into their private party room in the back. We weren't sure how it would go with that many people but everyone had a blast.... More

When there before a concert with our kids. Service was fast and friendly. She gave us the rundown how it works, we went to the salad bar and the meats were flowing!! The gauchos kept it coming with a smile. This place is a carnivores delight!! The kids had a blast, no one left hungry and we all agreed we... More

We found this to be one of the more unique experiences of our eating lives. 15+ different rotisserie meats (and pineapple which was unbelievably awesome!), a very nice soup and salad bar, unlimited appetizers (the fried polenta was to die for), wonderful decor and ambiance (loved the floor to ceiling wine case) and an extremely friendly and helpful staff (the...

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.
