I have been coming here since about 2006, and I absolutely love it. The "salad" bar (the name doesn't really do it justice) has an enormous variety to choose from, and you can get exactly what you want and as much of it as you want . . . but don't fill up too much on it . . . the grilled meats that are coming are so good that you will want to leave plenty of room for them.
If it were only about the food, I'd still give it high marks. But as delicious as the food is, and as good a value as the restaurant offers, my favorite part of enjoying an evening (or breakfast) at Ipanemas Grill is the people who work there. If you just want anonymity, they'll respectfully keep a distance. But I've enjoyed their company so much over the years that seeing them is now as important as having the incredibly good food (and drinks) that they serve. It had been a year since I was last there, but when I walked in, they came over to shake my hand and give me hugs, and a moment later they asked if I wanted my usual. Amazing!
They have wonderful senses of humor, they're attentive, friendly, and sincere. They are the very best of the great things Mexico has to offer.
Treat yourself to a wonderful evening of food and drink. And if you might be back, get to know the help a bit. It will enhance your experience, and you'll be glad you did.
