i went there on Saturday and was told there is a 30 minute wait. We waited for 1.5 hours and watched then seat parties of 6 or more ahead of us. there were other parties of two who waited longer than we did. Very disappointed with the service

The only problem with this restaurant is you can't take anything home and it's too much to eat. I tried to go easy on the salad bar, but how could I when it included shrimp cocktail, mahi mahi, an array of sushi, and all other kinds of goodies. At our table, seconds after we arrived was this yumtastic bread with a doughy center, cheesy crackers, and some raw meat that was seasoned to the nines. Once we tackled this, they sprawled our table with appetizers, such as rice, creamy mashed potatoes, seasoned broccoli, friend polenta, and fried bananas. One after another, the well prepared meats came. They had it all, chicken, beefs, steaks, duck, and pork. We must have gotten through 11 before we had to stop. I was told there are 15 different meats. I wish I could have taken my curiosity further. However, I had to squeeze in dessert. Like the rest of the meal, the creme brule was perfect. The service was outrageous. And, the atmosphere was great. I highly recommend this spot. It's not cheap, but well worth paying for considering what you get.

Meat was smelly and not great tasting at all. When asking for a rare slice, I would get the most cooked part of the skewer.. very disappointing overall. The salad bar isn't bad but with brazilian barbeque you really want excellent meat.. lots of it. There wasn't much variety in the meats either. there are way better brazilian steakhouses out there.. take your money elsewhere

I must say that the food was cooked and seasoned to perfection. And the service was excellent. This is my new Brazilian spot

My husband and I decided to go here for our 4th wedding anniversary to try it out. We went to a brazilian grill in Las Vegas, NV (called Pampas) and it was delicious! And we figured, hey, we live in NYC, there's gotta be a good brazilian grill! We came here on my brother's advice because he says this is the best place in NYC, but we were disappointed. I'm not the meat lover, so I was hoping the salad bar would suffice, but it did not. I didnt think the selection was so great, and their fish was so salty that I couldnt eat it. My husband (who IS the meat lover) did not even finish each meat that was brought to him, nor did he even "crave" for seconds of any particular piece. And that is saying a lot because he's a big guy and when he likes something, he will keeping going even if he's stuffed. I say it's expensive, because each drink is $3, and they are small cups, so he had 4 cups ($12) and I had 2 ($6). The dessert was also separate, it's in a cart where each item is $8.95 flat rate, and they're not even that big. The whole thing came out to $171 (including 17% tip). Service was good, but they were very annoying by coming over and asking us if we wanted a new drink, especially when we were deep in conversation. I would say that they are very attentive, but that they should really back off because if 1 waiter asks you if you want a drink and you say no, the other waiter doesnt know that and will come over to ask you. I would say the meats were all mediocre, and while eating them, it never gave us the feeling of "MmMmM this is awesome!". It's not bad tasting, just that there was nothing special or expecially good about it.

I've been to many of the gimmicky brazilian restaurants in nyc as well as in brazil and while the food is typically pretty decent and the service is usually good. This is no exception. I was a little taken back that our party had been charged $3 for each of the total 8 glasses of coke we had. In terms of food the all you can eat meats while on paper sounds like a great deal, in reality you don't ever eat as much as you think you would be able to. Not many people can eat that much which makes the price not worthwhile. It's a fun atmosphere and it's a good restaurant to go to if you've never been but if you are going for steaks and you don't want to be nickel and dimed on everything you order, your better off going to any other notable steak place in nyc.

I took my boyfriend to Churrascaria for one of his birthday gifts thinking he's a big guy who likes meat, this will be perfect. He only had a late breakfast that day, yet he was full after only sampling a third of the meats that came around. This is good and bad. It's a good thing that there is an abundance of meat circulating we never once felt slighted by the waiters, wondering where's the beef... It is bad if you don't eat much because the pre fixed price is about $56plus tax/per person-not including beverages. Our bill was only $160 but we didn't drink much. While all the meats were good, my favorites were the sirloin and the lamb. Deliciousness! They melted in your mouth! The beef ribs were very fatty, which was a disappointment. I don't eat pork so I can't rate that but my boyfriend really enjoyed all things pork. The chicken was very good as well. The atmosphere was lovely but unfortunately they sat us near the door so it was a tad chilly. Our seat was also near the piano which made for great ambience, but there is no live entertainment on Wednesday night so that was a waste and a bummer. My boyfriend ordered a beer and it was served room temperature. (Gross! Everybody knows that beer is best served ice cold...) Also, the maître d' led his crew to the wrong table and my boyfriend's complimentary cake, candle, and birthday song were delivered to the lovely couple beside us as we listened and clapped along. Imagine his expression when they sang his name and held the note. So much for surprising him... The couple accepted the gift and I mentioned it to one of the waiters who told the maître d'. They fixed the mistake and we enjoyed a good laugh about it, even though I was a bit disappointed. Overall, if I am honest, this would have been more fun if there was a big group with us as more food would have been consumed so we'd get our money's worth overall. There was nothing particularly "special" about the experience just different cuts of meat and some ok side dishes. I could have taken this dude to a BBQ place and spent about $100 less!
