Our family, 2 teens & 2 adults, decided to experience something a little different while on vacation. We pulled up and discovered valet parking ($3) is the norm. Although an fancy Maseratti was parked out front in a space. So if you don't want someone else testing your car's acceleration, you possibly have an option.
The entrance is very nice. Kind of like you're going to tribal council on Survivor. Surrounded by fountains, foliage, music (live), bar and a few seats. Very relaxing. We made reservations for 7:30PM and was promptly seated. Roger was our greeter and was very friendly and helpful. He explained the protocol and was nearby anticipating further clarification. The salads and other items at the huge food bar were very good and well presented. I made a couple of visits and didn't see any empty pans. A wide variety of foods; some familiar and others not so much. Unfortunately, no one was available to answer inquiries.
The main entrees (meat) kept coming. Initially bombarded. A bit too much but after several visits, the servers were not stopping by as often. The meat choices were very good and generous. Some meat choices were exceptionally good and others were ok almost fair. For example, I tried some sort of roast beef, maybe what they called ribeye. It looked a lot like a brisket. My pieces were a bit fatty and quite honestly, I can make a better brisket. My spouse agreed. However, the other choices were delicious! Everything was cooked & served and requested regarding doneness. The various cuts of beef, pork, chicken and my favorite lamb. I had to wait awhile for the lamb chops, but they were well worth the wait.
Wine selections were very good. In a sense, I sort of got the impression that your pressured to eat quickly so that you'll finish sooner, but maybe that's just my perception. Overall, it was good and I would recommend at least to try it if you haven't been to a brazillian restaurant.
No room for dessert! If you go away hungry, you better get your head examined, because you're not right.
