The customer service is unparalleled. All of the staff is very friendly, efficient, and can talk to just about any item they serve. My Mum (who is an out-of-towner) was impressed with the attention guests receive and how quickly items that were either low / out on the table were replenished. In terms of food, plenty of choices on the... More

Great experience, excellent food, exceptional service. My wife and I celebrated our friend's 41st birthday and had a great time. The pace of the service staff was impressive, they worked hard to please, each member of the staff served with intention and a sense of urgency. The food was excellent and we enjoyed being able to sample a little bit... More

Great place to have a large informal party. Large private room in the back all to yourself and the service is always excellent. The kids loved being there and the food was fantastic. Really enjoyed it. Brought our own cake and they helped serve it. Perfect. Thank you very much.

There was a broad and appetizing selection at the salad bar, but as with all churrascaria one can suspect that with an all-in price they are encouraging customers to fill up on the (cheaper) salad instead of the (expensive) meat. Fair enough, its a free world, just bear it in mind. The meat was delicious and each time the waiter... More

Dined at this Brazillian steakhouse for the first time as part of a birthday celebration for grandson and spouse. Meals are 1 price ($42/person), which includes the quite robust salad bar and an unlimited amount of beef, lamb, pork sausage, pork ribs, or chicken served table side. What really makes this restaurant unique is the roving servers, each with a... More

I hate to be the bad guy here but I just tell it like I see it. Our first visit to this restaurant and probably our last. The only thing that impressed me was the number of wait staff and servers. It was very crowded and most of the people were working there. They cant help but over serve you... More

I went here for Valentine's Day weekend and I must say this was the best steakhouse I ever been to. Everything was amazing from the food to the service and the margaritas was pretty tasty as well. I have no complaints bout this restaurant at all and I'm looking forward to going back.
