“GOOD BUT NOT GREAT”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

The service was very good and our waiter was authentically Brazilian. And I suspect that this restaurant is very representative of barbeque in Brazil. However, the food, both taste and selection, didn't come close to the more well-known Brazilian barbeque restaurant a few miles away. The salad bar was not exciting. The variety of meats were limited; in fact we had to pre-order lamb chops, which are normally our favorite, and theirs weren't great -- even after waiting 20 minutes. Lastly, it wasn't a bargain -- only slightly less than the other place I referenced. We were hoping this would be a real find. Sadly, that wasn't the case.

“Tasty but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2011

Great salad bar, grilled meat, atmosphere, and service in a nice walking area of Culver City. Good wine list. They sorta ignore the red/green status of your meat card - bring an endless string of meat skewers anyway. Seemed a bit expensive to me compared to comparable restaurants on the west side.
