I was initially wowed by the ambiance as they did a fabulous job renovating an old building. Unfortunately, they do not have a children's menu so my youngest had to order an adult entree, a waste for someone her age. We initially wanted to try the Rodizio, but changed our minds after few of the options seemed appealing. In the... More

This place is great. Reservations are pretty much a must, according to my aunt & uncle, because it fills up pretty quickly. Putting them in day of isn't an issue though. The food was delicious. We ordered the grilled octopus special for an appetizer. I have never had such a tender piece of octopus. The bread and everything else was... More

It is what it is! If you are a serious carnivore, this is your place. They do it well and they are attentive, at least to us. We were there late on a weeknight and they continued to bring us several selections, even asking us what we preferred. I would suggest going with the Rodizio and give them all a... More

The meats were so-so and extremely salty. They provide 1 small sample of each of the meats on the list. This sounds like a lot of food, and it is, but it would be nice if they came around with the meats so you could have a second of the one you like and skip the ones you don't really... More

All I can think of is the scene from the Monty python movie. Well that and geico commercial with the meat sweats. Rodizio. Brazilian for more meat than anyone can eat. I am a big guy and call it quits. And the meat is deliciously prepared. Sides are good but meat. The glorious never ending meat. Constantly coming to table... More

Great night with friends! José and Maria are absolutely amazing! After a wonderful night of sushi, we all decided to come for desert and coffee. Love the atmosphere and everyone was attentive.

The signature steak for two is strongly suggested, its our favorite. It was cooked and seasoned exactly how we ordered it! Tender, juicy and a nice size portion. I only wish it was less loud inside. We got there early Friday -before the crowds and had no difficulty hearing conversations...but then as it got busier we could not hear the... More

This place is amazing, great ambiance. The food was out of this world and the wine list excellent. My son and his wife had the rodizio style meals and loved it, all the meats were cooked to perfection, I had the garlic shrimp and it was delicious as well as a large serving

Since selling our restaurant in 2015 to the owners of Churrascarria, we have been back several times. Our most recent visit was for a birthday celebration in December. There were six of us and our dinners were delicious. Three of us had the rodizio, one the NY strip steak,one chicken milanese and my brother had the special fish of the... More

I took my son on a Tuesday night for his birthday. He's a meat lover so he had the BBQ. He thoroughly enjoyed it! I had a chicken and sausage dish which was also excellent and a very large portion, just a bit too spicy for me. I should have asked them to hold the hot peppers, my mistake. We... More
