So I mainly read the negative reviews before going here but decided to go with the almost 4 star rating instead and I'm glad I did. I wanted red meat, and while I looked at the steak houses near me, they seemed to all be pricey. Now I didn't mind pricey, but I just felt like I preferred a selection... More

Have been to Novilhos numerous times. It is an all you can eat Brazilian Steakhouse. The salad bar is probably 25 feet long and runs in an oval. It incluses things like black beans and rice, stuffed meatballs, prosciutto, Salami's, many cheeses, asparagus, salmon, etc., besides numerous salads. The main dinner is served by Gauchos, who bring your meats on... More

If you like Brazilian, where the Gauchos come around to your table with meat, this place is really good. Salad bar was excellent. BE SURE to have some of the chicken stroganoff. BEST EVER!

A "festival of meat" awaits you at this "traditional Brazilian Steakhouse" where "endless" skewers of meat "come at you from left and right". And, there is an "endless" and "exotic" salad bar. It is cost is "substantial" but it is an unparalleled experience.

We turned up with 7 people at 5.20pm on a Saturday without a reservation and were told they couldn't fit us in. The place was clearly only half full and when I pushed to see if we could get a table if we left by a certain time, they said they could seat us if we left by 6.30pm (which... More

Had a family meal here. Right off the bat let me say we used a Groupon but neither the hostess, nor waiter, clarified the deal wasn't as inclusive as we thought. And their defence when the bill came established that they walk down this path often. I would have respected honesty and clarification up front. Fortunately, we have the resources... More

Excellent salad bar with both cold and warm dishes. The main draw is the meat and we were there primarily for the beef. It was interesting to sample different cuts and we were surprised to find that the rib eye and filet mignon were not as tender or flavorful as the top sirloin. The lamb chops were seasoned with several... More

Took my finance and her daughter to dinner. Salad and other dishes were fresh and tasty. The meat dishes were well seasoned and enjoyable. Not your high end meats, but better than average. Had great wait staff and had a great experience. Not on my best list, but on my very good list.

Four years ago we went to Novilhos and I wrote a raving review. This time it was still very good, but not excellent. On a Sunday afternoon the place was full, which explains some of the delays in the service. The cheese bread is still excellent, the salad buffet and the meat quality seems to have lost some of the... More
