This is one of those Brazilian meat houses. Patrons can see different cuts of meat going around on a giant spit / rotisserie. You use a colored coaster on your table to signify your ready for more meat. Waiters come around with long spits of cooked meat held by big black leather belts. They carve prime rib, chicken, pork etc.... More

This was our first visit but won't be our last! You can choose salad bar only (and get plenty to eat including a meat dish and potatoes or other starch) OR you can choose the salad bar and freshly cooked meat (12 varieties when we were there) cut and served at your table. The martinis are perfect as well! The... More

Great Meat and Salad. Nicely decorated. Pleasant surprise as we used to drive to Orlando to Texas de Brazil(really good). This place is almost as good and no drive. Recommend...

You can get a whole variety of meats to eat, particularly beef. The salad bar is also commendable. My only problem is that I don't feel as though I can eat enough to make it worthwhile.

This was my first time visiting this restaurant. Food was super delicious, not even mentioning how tender the steak was! Would definitely recommend to a friend!

Next time I will try to save room for desert. So much food, and so many choices. The best part is you can try whatever you want. This was a very unique experience. The food is amazing! I loved the atmosphere too!

Second visit and highly disappointed. Lamb was the only thing good. Everything else was overlooked and dry, especially the pork. For the price ($41/pp) we could have gotten a much better experience elsewhere with meat cooked to perfection.

Not to huge meat eater, so I wasn't overly impressed. I also prefer my meats cooked well, sooo...I did enjoy everything else. Service was wonderful, experience was unique. Also visited for a special valentine dinner one year and enjoyed the experience even more...probably the bubbly (wink!) I would go again.

We had drinks while waiting for our tables. When we were taken to our tables, the wait staff was ready to take our orders. The salad bar was great! I can't even tell you how many staff keep stopping at our table to shave meat for us. The meal was perfect. The atmosphere was outstanding. I would recommend this restaurant... More

Ipanema Brazilian Steak House is a Churrascaria in the finest sense of the word. Our twelve authentic cuts and presentations of meat are seasoned with salt and roasted rotisserie-style over mineral coals imported from Brazil, basted continuously by their own natural juices. Served by traditional roving Gauchos, they are complemented by an opulent salad and vegetable bar, delectable desserts and delicious wines, beer, and cocktails.
