A friend took me there. It's in an iffy neighborhood, but apparently safe. Inside is nice. We had sangria. It was done perfectly. One of the best I had. The filet was cooked just as I asked, rare/medium rare. The quality was like Midwestern beef which doesn't come to either coast. Like butter, just melted in my mouth. This is... More

The Rodizio and red sangria are amazing! It truly is a meat lover's dream! The staff are super friendly and the atmosphere is very nice and warm. Gets busy at dinner time, so you should make reservations.

I have been to this restaurant about 10 times. I have never been disappointed. The food is always good as is the service. Ate here on a Saturday night in early July with a party of about 13. We had a reservation and we were seated immediately. The service was prompt and the food came out quickly. There is plenty... More

On Good Friday we try not to eat meat, so we decided to visit this restaurant to eat fish. We were told that they cook a delicious cod and it was true. We had a very nice affair. Be aware, por tions are huge, prices right. I come back

The food is very good, the only thing is that it's a small space so it feels crowded. Price is right for the portion.

We've been to this restaurant twice and the food is really good. The atmosphere upstairs is also really nice. Issue is that they don't hold true to their reservations. First time, I chalked it up to an overflow of walk ins. We had a reservation for 8pm, arrived and there were people out the door, three people back in the... More
