A small restaurant, but all of the servers were very friendly. We enjoyed a pitcher of Sangria & the food was excellent. A bit expensive, but quite an experience.

We have tried Brazilian steakhouse's in a lot of large cities and we were pleasantly surprised by this family run very small place in Scranton of all places!! The service was great and the single server brought the meats in order of the menu. She was friendly and accommodating as my family tends to order things like Meg Ryan in... More

If you've eaten at a Fogo de Chao or a Texas de Brazil, you know what a Brazilian steakhouse is all about. You also know that they are very "institutional" and that you share your meal with a multitude of other people. Ipanema Grill gives you all the benefits of a first class Brazilian steakhouse without that institutional feel...by the... More

You get 13 different meats brought to your table with the rodizio-none are marinated, but they do have rubs including garlic and others- meats are well prepared with good variety of tastes. Bacon wrapped filet mignon is excedllent.

Sunday night dinner for two, we both had the Rodizio, which includes a salad bar and unlimited visits to your table of lovely ladies with outstanding meats on skewers. Everything was excellent. Large salad bar with many choices, and a wide variety of meats, all of which were awesome, just some more than others. Every choice was spiced somewhat differently,... More

Could not believe Scranton finally has an outstanding Brazilian restaurant in our area!!! The Sangria was good, Salad bar has everything you could possibly want, but the meal you should not miss is the Rodizio., Which consists of all different cuts of beef, also pork cuts as well as portions of chicken. Certainly if you are a carnivore as I... More

We've been to a few of these Brazilian steakhouses over the years and they all have similar Ridizio offerings. But Impenema does not kill their meat with salt and spices and the buffet table has plenty of fresh compliments to go along with the Ridizio. Staff made a point to ask us which food we preferred so they would make... More

As a meat lover, I was happy to see a Brazilian steak house in Scranton and stopped by on my last visit to the area. As others mentioned, very attentive service and excellent variety of meats. The buffet which comes with the meal is first class - all high quality, for example salad uses romaine lettuce. The little cheese biscuits... More

I was a little worried because this place doesn't look like much outside. In fact it is really easy to miss driving by. The staff is so friendly and the food is excellent. My wife and I have visited several times now. I would highly recommend a reservation as they do a good business and are very busy. The Brazilian... More
