Had a great Mother's Day gathering here...the rodizio came out fast and furious with everything cooked to perfection! Some in our group got the seafood paella (which was a nice choice). Friendly staff...will come here again!!!

We were in town for a couple of nights looking for a good dinner. We were surprised to find this restaurant and more surprised with the food. During covid you never know what to expect. We have been to other Brazilian steakhouses both large and...small. The pace at which the food was served here was the best we ever had. Often meat is served so fast you cannot keep up or you sit and wait for the next item. Food here was good hot and plentiful. We were given time to eat and offered more of what we liked best. We will definitely return.More

We hadn't been to Ipanema Grille in several years and it wasn't nearly as good as it was in the past. It was my Birthday dinner and I wanted to go to Ipanema because I'm a big fan of meat and it was awesome the...last time we went. We had a reservation for 8:00 on Saturday night and our table was ready when we got there. My wife and I both ordered the Brazilian Rodizio serving all-you-can-eat carved meats for $45.00 per person. The meats were very poor quality. The Filet was so fatty it was uneatable, even the chicken was poor quality. They wrap several items in Bacon and the Bacon under cooked on every one. We had ten or more meats and only two or three were good and even they were fatty. The side dishes were good but banquet quality. We enjoyed the Crepes for dessert. Our service was very good. It was clean including the restrooms. They have lots of off street parking. Overall it was not a very good meal any price but certainly overpriced at 45.00 per person. We spent $146.72 including a $20.00 tip, left and I felt a bit ripped off. We would not go back.More

First time to a Brazilian steakhouse so it was not what I expected. That said, we waited over 15 minutes for any food to arrive. Was not something I would have wanted. When the first thing that arrived that I would want the server passed...us by and then ran out of that choice. It was a painstakingly slow process, for other choices to come out. I decided to pass altogether on the meat, would take forever just to earn a meal. Not paying $44 for a few bites of meat. It is very cramped with little room to move and makes it too slow for servers to get to your table with any choices. Too many tables for the number of servers and size of the facility. The other person I was with had been to other Brazilian steakhouses and felt that it was way too slow for the meat options to get to the table. I am not going to comment on the quality of the food since I choose not to partake in any, but if you want a steak dinner go to an American steakhouse. Lesson learned!More

The rodizio you get here is as good as anywhere you will get! The meats are high quality and very flavorful. The owners and staff are the nicest people you will ever meet. This place is worth the visit! Perfect for any occasion.

Overall we enjoyed our visit, only reason for not a 5 star, was that we didnt get to try all the items. We did mention it to our waitress, but it was busy. Staff was very friendly, welcoming environment, and clean. But becareful of the...hot peppers, they are very hot!More

This is the second time we visited Ipanema and it is just like the restaurant in Rio de Janeiro Brazil! The staff was amazingly accommodating - our water was filled all the time, the food was done to perfection, and the salad bar was yummy!...The first time we went we took our kids it was our 20th anniversary. Our waitress gave us free dessert which was a special treat. It was nice to have so many choices of meat - our kids even tried the chicken heart. Make sure you call for reservations. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the area.More

Coming from South Jersey, we have spent the week of Christmas in the Poconos for many years, and the Ipanema Grille is always one of the highlights of the trip. Not only is the food delicious, fresh, plentiful -- but the service is also attentive,...polite and extremely welcoming! Even though we only visit once a year, they remember us when we return. We cannot wait to visit again this winter!More

Amazing food everything on the menu was delicious. Keto friendly 2 thumbs up! My favorite was the filet mignon wrapped in bacon. Our kids actually tried the chicken hearts one liked them. We ate way too much then forgot we wanted dessert. Our kids wanted...the crepes they set on fire of course! Too much food to mention everything we had was fantastic! It was our 21st anniversary our waitress gave us a dessert on the house, which we appreciated...thank you for making our anniversary special. Memories of Brazil 💕💕More

The food is impeccable and the staff is amazing! My favorite part has to be their sangria! Whenever I eat here, I usually order the rodizio! I would totally recommend if you’re a big meat eater!

Every chance we get to visit Ipanema Grille we do so. Great people, great food and great Sangria. I drive 35 miles each way to enjoy the Rodizio. First timers pace yourself and try everything. When you find the items you love ask for more....If you leave this restaurant hungry shame on you. The desserts are scrumptious. Try any of the following the banana crepe, Brazilian Cheese Cake, Chocolate Liquor Cake or my favorite the Key Lime Cheese Cake.More

Staff was amazing, everyone very friendly, owner walks around to make sure you are getting enough to eat. We did the 13 meats, make sure you start small so you can go back and get more of what you liked. I thought the skirt steak...was awesome, melted in your mouth, rib eye was also delicious, we even tried the chicken hearts. Make sure you get the pineapple at the end!!!!More

Watch for the big Ipanema Grill sign painted on the wall to know right where to turn and park. Do order the classic $45 Rodizio experience. Vegetarians have an excellent buffet and salad bar to get whatever they want. Patricia greets you and Brazilian owner...Douglas both welcomes and serves you a tasty and memorable culinary experience.More
