Ipanema is bit on the pricey side, however, there is a less expensive option. The restaurant does serve lunch on Fridays. It is about half the price of the dinner menu, but, keep in mind that the full dinner menu is not available at lunch....More

I took my team of 8 here for dinner as a Xmass party... Some of the steaks are amazing but as everything else some are not, the chicken legs are not up to standard for that place, maybe getting a different type of meat..

The major problem is atmosphere. The tables are too close together. The items on the salad bar are excellent, but with the tight quarters and guys running around with meat its a chore to navigate and way too chaotic. I've dined at a Brazilian steak...More

Chris, you will have to contact the restaurant directly. I have no knowledge of their brunch menu. I would, however, tell you you should book a reservation for anything there. They are pricey, but worth it !!!!

Ipanema Brazilian Steak House is a Churrascaria in the finest sense of the word. Our twelve authentic cuts and presentations of meat are seasoned with salt and roasted rotisserie-style over mineral coals imported from Brazil, basted continuously by their own natural juices. Served by traditional roving Gauchos, they are complemented by an opulent salad and vegetable bar, delectable desserts and delicious wines, beer, and cocktails.
