If you're gonna go to this nice a place go ahead and pay the $5.00 for valet parking. The restaurant is simply beautiful. I made our reservations on line through opentable. They had our reservation and knew we there for a birthday and what our seating preference was. This place was huge. I noticed there was no one waiting when we came or went. We sat upstairs, which is accesible by an elevator or stairs. I recommend sitting here by the rail where you can look down and see eveything. From where I sat I could people watch everyone coming up and down the stairs and see into the area where the open pits were. Once we were seated the waitress came right over and explained how everything worked and got us set up. I tried their signature drink which is like a margarita but instead of tequila it is made with a Brazilian rum. It was great, didn't have that tequila bite to it. The salad bar was different than what we were used to, after all it's Brazilian. There is always someone around and we got someone to explain everything to us. The things we really enjoyed were the rice and vegetables,the cheeses, the black beans and rice, the roasted peppers, the potato salad and the lobester bisque. Some things we didn't care for the carmalized onions, the shrimp salad and the marinated portabello mushrooms. Everyone's taste is different, so I would still recommend giving them a try. Once you are through with your salad they will clear your salad plates and bring you fresh ones. You have a round coaster that is red on one side and green on the other. Once you are ready turn your coaster to green and the waiters will cover you up. I won't go into all the different meats, as you can look to their website for that. The waiters are happy to explain each cut to you. Most of the beef cuts were nothing overly special but was very moist and tender and well seasoned, but something every steak house has. The bacon wraped fillt mignon is not to be missed though. All of the pork dishes are extremely good, as is the chicken. My husband enjoyed the lamb chop and leg of lamb. I had never tried lamb and was surprised that it had a flavor all of its own. I didn't care much for it, but my husband found out he liked it. So give it a try.The meat is served with garlic mashed potatos that are to die for and cheese bread, which is a dumpling like roll with cheese in the middle. They were yummy. Oh, they will keep bringing you meat until you turn your coaster to red. The wait staff is excellant there is always four or five around to fill up your tea glass, whisk away any dirty plates, or answere questions. They were great and made you feel so special. There was a manager that circled the floor at all times. He made sure to drop by everyone's table once to check on everything and seemed to keep everybody on their toes. Not that he needed to, the entire staff was always pleasant, swift and always had a smile. I just can't say enough about this place and how much we enjoyed it. I didn't see anyone in shorts or any kind of flip flops. You saw people in eveything from starched jeans and western tops to dressy church clothes. We wore our jeans and cowboy hats as we were going to a show at Billy Bob's and didn't feel out of place at all. We didn't try dessert although they looked very good. The price was 40 and tea was 2.50 and my mixed drink was 6. I would highly recommend this place and I will gurantee this won't be my last visit.
