Description: Named after a form of fun and fast-paced Brazilian dancing, Samba Steakhouse is just as refreshingly exciting, offering an intense amount of meats and wild portions of sides and salads unmatched by American steakhouses. You can feast Rodizio with never-ending meat selections, File de Salmao which is salmon atop banana puree, and more mouthwatering selections in the surroundings of giant leaves and colorful designs reminiscent of the Brazilian rainforest. Whether it's a family dinner or a big party, Samba is the most popular Mirage restaurant for group dining. Everyone can enjoy a buffet of familiar Latin American cuisine made with bold new flavors and served straight to your plate.

“Great experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Had the buffet dinner as part of the Beatles Love show and dinner package. Not really a buffet as all the food is served at your table. The meal includes a Brazilian cocktail, salad, various barbecued meats , and vegetables and desert. You can eat as much as you wish. They give you. a table indicator and when you've had enough you just turn it upside down. The meats offered include beef filet, lamb, sausage, turkey and chicken. Everything was delicious. Fast and friendly service.

“Go with Rodizio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

Had a fantastic meal at Samba, excellent service and great pineapple mojitos.

Rodizio was amazing, huge choice of meats all with very different flavours. Teriyaki and bbq chicken, pork with roasted pineapple, beef and lamb roast, sausages, garlic bread, sure I've missed something!!

All the above come with an extra tasty salad, rice with black beans, plantains, creamed spinach and carrots, really amazing.

One of our party opted for the centre cut filet mignon which she said was the best she has ever had.Have had this myself on a visit a few years back and have to concur.

Definitely worth a visit!!

“Great Brazilian Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

This is as good as the food in Brazil! You need to come hungry or it is a waste. Not inexpensive but worth every dollar. Service is fast and friendly.

This restaurant is great for meat lovers. The restaurant offers rodizio and they give a lot of different kinds of meat. The sangria is also very good.

“All-you-can-eat is the best option!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

We set up 8:45 reservations after seeing a 7:00 Love show during the week. It ended up being a good idea to make the reservations, as we had a group of 8 and a lot of people come out of the Love show hungry!

All of us got the all-you-can-eat option for $40 a person. The meal starts with salad, along with some flatbreads, cheese bread, and dips. Don't fill up!! The entrees in the all-you-can-eat are listed on the restaurant's web page, so I won't list them all here, but we really liked the turkey wrapped in bacon and some of the steaks. The leg of lamb left a bit to be desired. We also got a few of the Brazilian punch speciality drinks, which were quite good.

The cons - the servers come around quickly with the food, so you have to eat fast to keep room on your plate! In addition, once you have had a sample of all courses, it was very hard to get the attention of a waiter to bring seconds of the dishes we liked. If you see any of the waiters in the place, try to grab them, as they all seem to work together to bring the food around.

We were a very casual group, so we liked the the atmosphere was laid back and near some of the casino action. I've seen complaints that the casino makes the restaurant too noisy, but none of us found that to be the case at all. It's nice to be in a place like this on the strip that's not too stuffy. Overall, for Vegas, $40 for all you can eat good meat dishes was well worth the price.
