“Friendly atmosphere, and great food, too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We went for the early bird pricing, which gave us $12.50 off. This was a great deal, as you get so much to eat even before you get your meats brought to your table. Lots of fresh choices on the salad bar, also sushi, cerviche, cold shrimp, crab salad. Then you start on the meats carved at your table.....lamb, sausage, rib eye, garlic steak, pork, short ribs, chicken. There is supposed to be fresh fish as well, but I never saw it, and was too full to ask for it, so it wasn't an issue. Fried plantains and also grilled pineapple, which my husband loved. Mashed potatoes and fresh hot rolls are also brought to your table. Also, try the Brazilian rum drink, Caipirinha...it is a amazing (tastes like a cross between a Mojita and a Margarita...yummy). Also the servers worked very well together, were very attentive and friendly.

“Amazonia is delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We dined at Amazonia with friends for the first time and had an awesome experience starting with the service. The servers were friendly and informative. They explained the dining experience perfectly. We didn't over eat at the delicious salad bar, as we were warned to save room for the meat!! Every cut was tender and flavorful. My favorite was the lamb!! The grilled pineapple was delectable. We saved room for desert and the Creme Brule and Brownie ala mode were to die for! Overall a very enjoyable and delicious meal!! Thank you to the friendly servers!!

“Great Meal - Fantastic Grilled meat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Amazonia has an amazing salad bar to get you started. The selection of items is varied and really tasty. The crab salad and grilled vegetables are some of the standouts. Once you are done with the salad "course", a veritable panoply of grilled meats are presented for you to enjoy -- as much as you can eat. The picana is definitely one of my personal favorites, but there are many more that I can;t resist. The staff is friendly and work hard to satisfy your culinary and service needs. The manager, Patrick van der Berg, keeps the staff on their toes and is very knowledgeable about what makes for great food, wine, and service. he always has time to talk to his guest. The chef will take the time to walk you through the salad bar in case you have any dietary restrictions (e.g., gluten free). We'll be back for more.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Head what the waiter tells you - don't fill up on the salad bar....and the salad bar is very tempting. The meat's are superb and never ending and the grilled pineapple is to die for!!! Oh, and you must save room for the cheesecake! Go on an empty stomach and pace yourself.
