Made reservations for a Saturday evening at 5:30 for my birthday well in advance. When we arrived there was an hour and half wait. We told the hostess we had reservations. She said they don't take them and acted like oh well. What a surprise...More

Not what a Brazilian steakhouse should be. I would call it the McDonald's of Brazilian steakhouse. If you know what I mean then you need know nothing more. If you don't then you have never been to one.
