Food is extra salty and dry. Salad bar could be a lot better for the price. First cocktail we ordered had no alcohol. I usually turn red right away when I drink alcohol. I asked the waiter he assured there was some alcohol. I ordered another drink and this time I tasted the alcohol and actually turned red.

We had a great experience. Food and service was good, and staff was very nice. It's all you can eat so if you can eat a lot then the $55 price per person isn't so bad. I cannot eat much at all, so for me the value wasn't there. We went because my husband has been wanting to try it. I'd recommend going for the experience if you've never been.

As there aren't that many Brazilian steakhouses downtown, there's not much competition without having to go to Bellevue and such. Brazilian steakhouses always seem expensive to me, but worth it when we go.

The selection of Meat and Flavors were good but talk about blind sided with the $35 Salad Bar that was non-existent, we were under the impression the salad bar came with the $60 Rodizio Meal.

Lettuce, a couple chunks of cheese and lunch meat, a couple options of cold salad, old bread, 1 scoop of mashed potatoes (who knows how long that last scoop of potatoes had been there) and Bean soup.

We had about 4-5 bites and just went with the Meats, the salad bar should be free at these prices especially with what they offer.

Everything was great until it came time for the bill. I don’t know if they were under staffed but it took 15 minute to get the bill.

I typically has fast service at this place but this time, it was a little slow. I think it is due to the fact they had couple big tables and they were running low on employees cutting the meat. However, the food is still great as usual and the value is superb when you purchase a Groupon. Been there for 5 years now and will keep going back for sure!

Dined here a few years ago. It’s not a good as I remember. Most beef cuts were chewy. They were cooked and seasoned well but the meats were not quality cuts. The pork was over cooked.

It is a fun experience. You don’t expect the attention from staff they are like no other. We enjoy brining new people to watch there faces as they dine. Who thought a green coaster up or red coaster up would have such meaning . We like going to Seattle for lunch here. A pay parking lot just accross the street, easy to find, little view of water we saw a cruise ship.

$50 or so per person, but we'll worth it. All you can eat if the tastiest meat you'll get your hands on. On to of this, service is excellent. It go to date night.

Service was very mediocre — the gentlemen handling the cuts were not very attentive and simply came, cut, leave without listening to the guests request. Overall I was disappointed with the meal — the meat were salty as well and was not worth the cost of me and my date traveling out to this restaurant for a date night. The host was quite rude with demeanor as well — as she didn’t seem to care if we would stay or leave or pay attention to the seating, but placed the menus down and left without saying much to let us know. Making reservations on Open Table and yet tells me that she does not see my name and I felt the demeanor was rude and brushed off. I simply won’t be coming back to this restaurant nor will I recommend it. There are so many other places in Seattle with greater service and food for the cost/value to the guest.

Nice date night venue before a show. Allow plenty of time to try everything. They bring it all in quick succession, unlike other Brazilian steak houses we have been to before that waited a long time between offerings.

This has been my fifth time going to this restaurant and my expectations have always been met. It is expensive but when you realize the amount of meat, salads and sides that are available it is definitely worth the price. I was able to find a groupon and there was no difficulty redeeming the coupon. I try to go at least once a year. I recommend the grill from ipanema to everyone I know.

We so enjoyed this restaurant! The foods and tastes all made your mouth very happy! The sampling of meats were amazing including shrimp and bison! The salad bar was delicious with things for those who wanted the traditional salad bar plus foods that food adventurers could try for new taste sensations. The service was excellent! We never wanted for anything!
