“nice and fun dining experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

Actually our experience wasn't so great as we ended up going to the salad bar after the meat stopped coming. It was for lunch, friends told me that dinner would be different. Anyways, the whole idea they carry the meat to your table and cut right in front of you is pretty fun. Will give it another try and report back.

“Fathers Day "Special"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

We went for this years fathers day and we probably won't be back. We have been to these restaurants before and we love them but the service here was mediocre-we ended up having to go to the salad bar and getting our own plates to start the main course, 2 of our drinks arrived after our meal was finished and the re-fills for the others after our meal. The tables weren't kept clean so we just had stuff piling up. There were meats that never even made it to our table, that we heard being offered to other tables after we had finished eating. The web page menu advertised prime rib (my husbands favorite) for a fathers day special and they didn't have it-we were offered ribeye instead. For the amount of money we spent it isn't worth a second chance for us.

RalphandAlice13,

Thank you for giving us a try on Father's Day. We are so sorry to hear that your service was not up to our standards. We feel as strongly as you do that plates should be cleared and not stacking up and drinks should be delivered in a timely manner. You should not have to go to the salad area for fresh plates. Your review has already been discussed with our managers to make sure that they and our staff understand how this effects our guests experience. Another issue that you mentioned was the prime rib and rib eye. We did refer to the rib eye as prime rib because they are cut from the same larger rib area. We understand the confusion this could cause given that the preparation for prime rib is usually roasting and cut into different sizes. In the future we will only refer to this cut as rib eye,

We always encourage guests to please let a manager know about service or hospitality issues when dining with us so that we can solve it for you while still in the restaurant. We hope you will reconsider a future visit so that you can enjoy the experience as it should be.

Thank you again for taking time to provide us feedback.

All the best,

Mark Rosenthal

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

We are very grateful for the rain having forced us to take shelter here. What a wonderful experience. Once seated each table is brought starters. We were then invited to help ourselves to the salad bar which included hot foods. All was fabulous and tasty.

Once seated and the little marker turned to green a number of sword size skewers are presented with an assortment of meats, fish, other products, ie. sausage and roasted pineapple. The variety of meats and sauces ensure that there is an array of food for everyone.

Many thanks to this restaurant for the amazing meal. We will be sure to visit the next time we are in town. Maybe we will even be able to try the desert that we were too hungry to have.

Jackie M,

I knew installing those sprinkles on top of the building would pay off :).
So glad you had a chance to try the Rodizio Grill experience

Thank you for taking time to share with fellow travelers. See you next time.

We had a party of seven for dinner and everyone loved the food, ambiance, service and seeing every selection being delivered on hot swords. A wonderful experience.
