As a party of two couples for a business dinner this venue was disappointing. The salad bar was one of the best I have ever seen but the "parade" of Brazillian Barbeque meat was disappointing. Firstly all the waiters brought was endless offerings of Chicken and lesser cuts of red meat. By the time a sniff of Fillet was to be seen we were almost finished a second bottle of (overpriced) wine and tired of waiting. Very few of the large selection of advertised cuts of meats ever materialized.
There was no consistency in the service from the waitstaff and we felt we were floundering and waiting for most of the evening.

The salad bar had a lot of cheeses on it,but a lot of the other stuff we found to be odd.
I loved the little rolls they put on the table and the fried bananas, we only liked 2 of the meats , the top sirloin and lamb chops, the other meats were either very dry or tasted like a mystery meat, service was excellent, but I feel like I paid $50 a person to eat bread and fried bananas.

Though very spendy, the food is excellent and unlimited. Come ready to eat because they've got all the delicious redmeat you'll want.

I love Brazilian Steakhouses. They make for a great night out with friends (or even a great place for a first date) The food was good, some meats much better than others (my personal favorite here was the Parmesan Pork Loin)
The staff was fabulous from the Valet, to the greeter and most definitely the waiters. Very attentive and very friendly/polite.
