Our featured meats have been slow-roasted over an open flame and lightly seasoned to preserve the unique taste of each tender cut.Adding to our unique dining experience, you will be treated to a sumptuous, gourmet salad and vegetable bar featuring over 30 items including imported cheeses, cured meats, fresh vegetables and more. We complement your meal with traditional Brazilian side dishes such as caramelized bananas, crispy polenta, seasoned mashed potatoes and our world-famous cheese bread (pao de queijo).No meal is complete without trying a refreshing caipirinha, something from our award-winning wine list or one of our decadent desserts

“carnivore heaven!!!!!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

The service here is some of the finest I have ever experienced. The food is always excellent. It is a place to choose if you are looking for a different dining experience. It is pricey but the cuts of meat and salad bar are well worth it. We have taken groups of friends there and always have a great time. It can get very crowded and noisy so definitely not a choice for a quiet romantic dinner.

“Tsunami of red meat”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

The concept of "eat as much as you can" is usually reserved for the low end restaurants with a lot of pasta and low quality meat or fish. It was a surprise to come across the place where very high quality meat is served in abundance ( actually there is no limit of how much you can consume) prepared just to your liking and served fresh and juicy in small portions. The salad bar is huge with numerous choices and there is no limit on the trips to refill your dish. We enjoyed tremendously garlic beef and "T-bone lamb" and asked for many refills. There is a great selection of wine and desserts but those are limited for separate orders. All together a great venture and memorable evening.

“Lives up to expected standard”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

The restaurant is centrally located about a block off Market Street, and is in easy walking distance of many of the top downtown restaurants. The food quality has remained consistently high, and the service has been attentive without being stuffy. Reservations are essential.

“Very expensive experience”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Very nice salad bar but no soups and the restaurants is very elite and well decorated but extremely expensive experience especially for Muslims who don't eat pork or wine because almost half the items served contains either of those.they stopped working on that green or red flag concept which was very famous indeed.u have to be very hungry to break even this non stop meat service. Also they don't serve sauces with the meat which is very poor. They should serve a variety of famous sauces and at least include a refill beverages like 95 % of the states restaurants
