“Perfect beef”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

This was my second dinner at Giuseppe Grill, last time was a year ago. Went there with colleagues after a field inspection. Most of us had Pirinha, but not the way we had it previously. This was a massive chunk of grilled beef, very tender, and perfectly pink in the middle.

The Capirinha was perfect, but then on the other hand, is it possible to fail on Capirinha?

We had Angelica Zapata, an Argentinian red wine I never had heard of, but then again I don't have that great knowledge of Argentinian wines. Anyhow at 260 reis it is pricy but worth every penny. I actually had this wine at a different restaurant for 370 reis! I also recommend wine buffs to have a look downstairs on their wine cellar, very impressive!

This time I experienced a bit slower service than my first time, but it's not a big deal. I would recommend Giuseppe Grill to anyone looking for good beef with good wine. The atmosphere is good for either business or pleasure.

“Way overpriced, good food, aggressive service”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

I read the reviews so this place sounded good. They do have good food, fresh ingredients, but it's nothing sensational. They charge you a $8 cover charge without telling you (16 real) and bring you lots of little nibbles while you wait.
I wanted to order the Grouper steak and the waiter kept trying to convince me to order the grilled snapper (which was 100 real or $50 - for a fillet of red snapper!)

I had a nice glass of wine, too.

But honestly, there is no need to spend this kind of money unless you just don't care.
I paid about $80 for a simple fillet of grouper, a mixed salad and a glass of wine.

“Meat or fish”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

For those visiting Rio de Janeiro for fun or work you should try the great Giuseppe Grill. In this wonderfull restaurant with two branches, Centro (downtown) and Leblon, you will have great fish or meat cooked in a wood fire grill with choice of magnificent side dishes to choose from. The Centro restaurant is open only for lunch during week days ande the Leblon restaurant is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. Reservation is adviced. In Leblon you can also try various seafood and the superb suffle potatoe. Also try the long and prestigious wine list.

“Amazing dinner with local choices, great steaks, and fresh seafood!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

This place has it all... Great streaks, fresh seafood, and plenty of local brazillian favorites. As tourists from the US, some of us wanted something basic and familiar, while others were looking to find something new and exotic. The menu was creative, but offered something for everyone.

The only caution is that after appetizers, dinner, and two bottles of wine, our group of 4 people spent more on this meal than any other that week. That said, it was well worth it!

“Great grilled meal”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

It is a place a go regularly. The place is very nice, the staff friendly and the quality of the food is awesome.
Make a reservation. The place is often full.
Try to get a table on the main floor, not in the basement, it has a better environment, you see the grill, the fish and seafood on the ice, better spot.
As an appetizer, I suggest "panelinha de cavaquinha", actually, all the panelinhas are very good. The simple sausage is also worth a try.
As main dish, my favorite is the Pichanha Supra Sumus, just the best. Tender and tasteful.
Desert, the Romeu e Julieta, excellent.
The wine list is also very good and the Sommeliers very helpful.
Enjoy it.
