Looking for the authentic Brazilian barbeque dinner? This restaurant fits the bill. In addition to the tasty appetizers and side dishes, the various meats just kept on coming, all cut to order off the meat-spears carried by the waiters. It requires discipline to walk out without being overly stuffed. After all the meat, the restaurant also has a delicious buffet... More

I had the pleasure to dine here for a business dinner! It was the best meal I had during a 6 day trip to Brazil. There is a board on the wall that shows you which cut of meat they are bringing you. Every cut is unique and good in its own way. This is a place you can say... More

Despite the name and the fame, meat quality was just OK. Ribs were hard, and very few choices of meat cuts. Service is OK. Side dishes good but few. The place is nice for business meeting but food quality really poor

A really good Brazilian BBQ restaurant, maybe one of the bests. Good service and nice ambience. The cocktails could be better( too much sugar) But overall really good.

This restaurant is the absolute epitome of what can be considered the perfect churrascaria. The food is simple yet perfected. You are provided the best cuts of prime meat available served alongside fresh polenta, potato salad, soup, and various vegetables. The experience is authentic in preserving the best of the churrascaria experience. I have friends back home who absolutely love... More

I am an American currently living in Brazil, and of all the churrascarias that I have been to, Imperador is my favorite. The meat is delicious and there are lots of varieties to try. Our (my husband and my) favorite part of the meal is the fried polenta and the barbecued provolone cheese. They have mastered the art of cooking... More
