Absolutely terrible experience across all areas of the visit - service, food, atmosphere. The restaurant was nearly empty, yet still understaffed. The food was completely subpar. The one server made almost zero effort (she was clearly frustrated too, and no longer cared).

I Came to Eat a Early Dinner on Sunday Evening and They bring You a Menu of the Salads and Hot Bar and I got sitter alittle early and was given the Brunch Menu and was able to get some of those items i.e. Oatmeal...and Sausage Gravy and Biscuit, which were Great. Then I got the usual Mashed Potatoes, Parmesan Vegs, Mushrooms the BLT Salad and Their wonderful Ranch Dressing, the Beef stroganoff was alittle to Salty for Me, and then the Meats came around, until I couldn't eat another Bite. The Staff are very Nice. Friendly and Helpful. The Restaurant wasn't very Crowded related to the Early Hour I was there 3pm. I always Enjoy My Visit to Rodizo's and the Meat Fest.More

Props to Cheyenne, fellow bourbon Expert! She recommended Woodford reserve for the old fashioned which was the perfect choice, top that with talented bartender who perfectly balanced old fashioned. Amazing recipes well matched to all the varieties of meat. Dennis was one of the most...personable gauchos and was extremely attentive and served with the correct slice thickneses. Manager Joe was also knowledgeable and was able to direct us to a Rodizio in our area out of state. Must try creme brule and flan. Made exactly the way they should. No gasoline flavor from brûlée sugar or from over flaming technique. Flan was flavorful, light, and delicate kiss on the tongue. Trust me on this...keep that green block pointed upwards, but don’t be afraid to lay it down for dessert!! You can always turn the block to green after dessert like we did!More

As a Brazilian I am very picky about my Brazilian steak houses. I like how well they adapted to the pandemic by giving you the foods that are normally on the buffet family style on the table. They have the normal cuts of meat but...the pork tasted sour. They had wild cuts if meat this week so we got to try wild boar, elk meatballs and duck legs. It was interesting and a cool addition to the usual items. But my favorite is the grilled pineapple. So good. Is it the best Brazilian steak house I've been too? No but it was pretty good, they adapted very well to the current conditions and gave me something new to try. Good job. Bem feito.More

This restaurant went above and beyond in more ways than one. Me and my wife went there for dinner and sat at the bar waiting for our table. While there my wife had an unexpected asthma attack and could not catch her breath and her...rescue inhaler wasn’t working, I had already called for an Uber back to our hotel. While waiting outside the bartender Chelle was quick to intervene with coffee being and asthma sufferer as well she knew exactly what to do. So we decided to stay. Shortly after our seating our waitress Rebecca noticed my wife having another asthma flare up and was quick to grab her another coffee, and an espresso which worked wonders and allowed both of us to enjoy our night out on the town these guys deserve the upmost respect and my hats off to them definitely one of our favorite places to eat while in the downtown area. I would definitely put it up against any NYC steakhouse any day.More

Joe Goldman and his staff provided a great place to celebrate our twin boys' 15 year old birthday with a small group. Due to covid, there were some hurdles on seating and service, but Rodizio's championed the issues and made our evening a great success!...The food was awesome and the service was fantastic! Thanks for helping us celebrate this event!More

Rarely can you find a great restaurant that is more than worth the expense of the meal. Every time that I have dined at Rodizio's I have been impressed by their service. Last night's experience did not disappoint and far exceeded every other time. I...want to especially thank Lamon for the "dark" pineapple. Yes, we were even able to smuggle it out without having to create a distraction :-) Thank you to all the servers for reminding us what true customer service looks like in action. The front desk hostesses could have taken a lesson from Ya'all! The only disappointment was that the view seats weren't available and the hostesses were too rude in explaining it.More

We were in a getaway weekend and decided to dine at this restaurant. We love Brazilian food, we have been to a few Brazilian steak-houses, as well we have been to Brazil and experienced their local food. This restaurant was very disappointing. We asked for...lemon water, the glasses were dirty, the lemon old and stale, and then we found that the silverware had leftover, dried food on them, that looked like it had been there for days. Even though we didn't have a good start, we couldn't wait for the food. Because of the current situation with COVID the buffet is not open - they give you a menu and you have to choose your appetizers and they bring it to you. They were ok, but did not seem fesh. For the sides, the "feijoada" (black beans and rice) was not fresh -- it looked like it had been warmed up in a microwave. The rodizio meat was good but after all this experience, our appetite was ruined. The manager stopped by to ask if everything was okay and after our complaint he offered us desert but we refused. We are definitely NOT coming back and won't recommend it. Spend your $100 somewhere else, it will be worth much more.More
