“Meet for Meat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The quality of the food is high, the experience is unique, the setting is very nice. The one-price aspect of this particular concept favors the big eaters. Don't go for if you're just looking for a snack, in fact, it may be best to skip lunch.

“Excellent meal and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

What a fun experience! I will start by saying the salad bar is nothing short of amazing! Fresh salad greens and the ability to concoct a variety of different salads. My personal favorite was a variation of caprese with fresh mozzerella balls and tomoato slices with balsamic vinegar, oil over salad greens! YUMMY! Once you flip the disc, the meat just pours in. The staff is pretty attentive, but they were swamped. Great atmosphere, amazing Caprihinis. Would recommend and re visit!

“Place for the meat eaters who like their meat "juicy"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

The staff was very helpful, being it was our first time at the restaurant. The salad bar was nice, but I was expecting a little bit more. The meats that i had were good, I like my steaks well done and I hardly got any red meats close to my liking. I did, however fall in love with the bacon covered chicken! Delicious! The hot side dishes are very small to share however, they do bring out more. Over all a great place to those who like their meat med-well or rare, but for those who don't (like myself) its a little difficult, (stick with the bacon covered chicken!) The cost of the meal is just the food, drinks and desserts are extra. But a wonderful place to try!

“More than one might expect, and I expected a lot !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

There is wait staff everywhere, the salad bar is not only exquisite, but also beautiful to look at. Brazilian BBQ included premium variety, you need to be a bit selective or you'll be quickly overwhelmed. Was there for birthday, and everyone who came was uplifted and left delighted - not only with the food - but with the very positive experience due to very attentive wait staff. While somewhat expensive, it is still an excellent value and we tipped well because the service was exemplar.
