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

We took another couple here to celebrate a birthday. We have been to Texas de Brasil and Fogo de Chao multiple time, but Ipanema is in our backyard so we decided to keep it local. I would give Ipanema a three and a half if I could, but since that isn't an option, rounding up is the best choice. The... More

We were seated promptly at 5:00PM in front of the kitchen window which I had requested. Service was attentive and perfect. All of the staff were great. A young lady was coming to each table asking if we would like a feel picture, which we took. It was a lovely picture. Salad bar is always fresh with a excellent selection.... More

Went for a birthday celebration with 14 people. With reservations, no issues seating. A nice selection of salads and pre-main course offerings. Main course, the meats, were wonderful and sliced to request, with refills if desired. Not really a place to take someone with protein restrictions although my vegetarian daughter found plenty to eat.

We went here on Christmas Eve for my husband's birthday. It is one of the best places we have ever gone to. The food and service was outstanding!!!! So glad we made a reservation because it is a very long wait otherwise.... But well worth it!! We will definitely be going again.

The food and service are very good. I would definitely go back, but the price keeps me away. I just wish it were more affordable for us. We're on a fixed income, so it makes it hard for us. Would recommend to others.

The service and food are way off the mark.Salad bar is good but the service is no where close to the standard of a 45.00 a plate restaurant.We waited over a hour for 3 pieces of over cooked heavy salted meats.The pineapple guy came by 7 times.No owner present and when leaving half the staff was outside smoking.

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.
