I dined here with a business partner. The atmosphere reminds you of a fine steak house in the States so I was excited. The salad bar and the meat were very good but the service was not up to par. It seemed every one was looking forward to just getting you served and going home. Just shows that service can make the difference between very good and excellent. If it's convenient to you in Sao Paulo, it's not a mistake to go but I would not go out of my way.
