“Best Salad Bar Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Excellent steakhouse. Good food and drinks. Best salad bar I have ever seen with some very unique and tasty items. Been there twice and it has always been busy. Not a quite dining experience. I would recommmend reservations. Service has always been good. Downside is way too much food - go really hungry. Located in Dolphin mall so parking close by can be a real challenge on a weekend but there is a real upbeat vibe in the entertainment area outside of restaurant. There is normally music on the stage area outside of the restaurant. If you have shopping bags it would be nice to get a table on the side.

“Awesome Dinner!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

This place was awesome and has blown away any other Brazilian steakhouse that I have been to. You need to go here hungry as there is no ordering and no small portions. You have the option of just getting the salad bar or the full meal deal. Cost of the full meal is about $50 per person and the salad bar is half of that. You can easily get by with just having the salad bar. It is huge and has a number of items to choose from. It is too easy to fill up on just that as the selections are so so inviting.

When you sit down they explain the how it works and then off to the salad bar you go. When you are done the meat fest begins. They have a number of choice meats all prepared differently. They bring them to you table and slice it right in front of you. It t akes a lot of restraint not to over eat. I Wuorenma,d definitely return to this chain.

I'm not sure about the other locations, but the Miami location automatically charges. 15% gratuity because of the tourism here. Many countries don't have the tipping etiquette that we have and the servers often get stiffed so there is a need in doing this, regardless of the size of your party. There is an option to add to the tip if the service was good.

You will not be disappointed at this place.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Beautiful cuts of meat, the salad bar is the size of a small aircraft with everything from salad to salami to sushi to fruit! The staff are very knowledgable and they have a great wine menu. Definately worth a visit

“We had a great time and a great meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Even though this is a brazilean "churrascaria" you don't have to be a meat lover to eat here. Their salad bar is AMAZING. With a huge selection of greens, cheeses, rice, beans, soups and even sushi - there's something for everyone. Having said that, if you are a carnivore, this place might very well become your favorite dinner spot.
They have a large selection of cuts and each one more delicious than the last.

The restaurant gives you a cardboard circle (about the size of a cup). One side is green, the other side is red. As long as you have the green side facing up, the carvers will come up to your table and offer you different types of meat. And yup, you guessed it, when the red side is facing up, you can enjoy your meal without being bothered.
