    Hortensia and our waiter were wonderful to us. My friend, Janet, said the key lime pie was the best she has ever had.

    We went late on a Friday. Around 8pm so everything felt more rushed on the service. The food was great and the service was great. Just felt rushed on the service and didn’t get to order drinks the way we wanted. Enjoy this restaurant, probably go once every other month. Just not quite the same feeling I get anymore when it’s $300 for two people. But I’ll come back, just doesn’t have the same value anymore.

    We had a reservation at 630pm on a Friday. The salad bar was very good as expected, and the servers were very nice and attentive. The meat they served us was inconsistent in preparation, and the cuts were low quality considering the price we paid. Each of us would get the same meat but some of us had pieces that were overcooked or not seasoned well. We weren't asked what temperature we wanted our meat (for beef). We also noticed as we were leaving that they were bringing out higher quality cuts of meat to serve other patrons that they did not offer us. I don't think I will, but if I go again, I guess it will have to be closer to 830pm.

    We were excited to enjoy a nice night out with my best friend whom I hadn't seen in a couple years. We have been to a lot of different Brazilian steakhouses. The salad bar here was nothing to write home about. The gauchos stopped coming around to our table which was weird because our cards were all to green. Then They took our plates and utensils so I guess that our sign to order dessert, so we did and again... no utensils were brought. It was just a bizarre experience. We didn't feel very welcome.

    When you enter the restaurant you know you are in for a treat. You can smell the steaks, chicken, and other meats as you enter. I felt I was treated like royalty. FYI you will be spending some money but it worth the value. Chicken wrapped in bacon, excellent!

    This was my first Brazilian steakhouse experience and I couldn’t have asked for a better one. Everything was perfect from the food, to the service and hospitality, to the ambiance. The owner Eli was a great and considerate man as well. He stayed with us almost an entire 2 HOURS after the restaurant closed and not once did I feel like he was rushing us out and getting annoyed with our presence. In fact he continued to offer us dessert and wine service, and even engaged in a few of our conversations in a polite and non intrusive manner. At the end of the night he shared some extremely kind words and a great story with me and my significant other and made this a truly unforgettable experience for a very special occasion. 100/10 this would be the first place I recommend to anybody and we had an absolute blast here. Thank you to Eli and his staff!!!

    It was kind of a slow night so I don't think that they had all their meats available. My favorite is the grilled pineapple and they had none. The food is good, just there wasn't the variety that I was expecting. Service was good. I'd go again.

    I've dinned at this wonderful restaurant for almost 10 years from the day the first open. Previously, I gave them 5 star for price valued and quality of meat selections, addition to the cold cut station. Unfortunately, Covid-19 was hard for them to recover in full speed. Recently, for the last few times I visited, which was disappointed with less meat variety and cold cut station was less choices. Before Covid-19, they used to have beautiful Italian prosciutto, prawn cocktails, wheel of Parmigiano cheese. Meat used to have leg of lamb, tomahawk, rack of lamb (now on request only), prime rib and much more. The service was pulled tip and lately, they have a bunch of rookies were working, which lack of service details and professionalism. The wine list was not updated. A few red wines on the list were not available. It was just sad! Thanks the owner for his quality service , i felt welcome when he's in town away form his other restaurants in Arizona.

They even sang Happy Birthday at our table with an extra dessert item and a candle. I can't wait to go back there again. I absolutely recommend this restaurant.

    Made a resevation, when I showed up they said my tbale wasn’t available even though I had made a reservation weeks in advance. Quality of service was poor. We were constantly told food options were out and nothing was being restocked. Only nice thing they did was give me coupon codes for next time.

    Overall, it was a great experience. However, I do recognize that they save the choice meat to come out, maybe once an hour.. prior to that you get constant repeats of the same protein.

    I was excited to take my husband there for Fathers Day. But I’m really not happy and I don’t believe I will be referring anyone there. I don’t like medium rare meat and they kept bringing us that after we asked for well done. When they finally came with the well done meat it looked liked scraps. We were just not happy especially having to pay so much money.

    Meat selection is not as varied as other steakhouses I have been to; however, it was still very good quality. Employees were kind. We went as soon as it opened on Father's Day, good experience. The floors by the salad bar were freshly cleaned, but slippery FYI. I would definitely come back again.

    It wasn't the worst Churrascaria I've been to, but it was extremely overrated. The open buffet was probably the smallest I've seen at a churrascaria and the meats were slow to come out. The traditional items (rice, feijoada, limonada, etc) were all well done. I would not go back.

    I been here before and this would be my 5 time. The service has gone down each time I been back but this last time sucked. They had a large party in the back that had all of the attention. After they left, the staff seemed to stop serving the grilled meat. We waiting 20 minutes and not grilled meat came out. I even asked if I can have their speak but nothing. It was for my fathers birthday so I wanted him to have a good time. Might have to reconsider going back here and the service has gone down with each of my visits. Really sucks because the first 2 times I was there everything was great.

    The food and service by the staff is always amazing. We were the last to be seated for the evening. We never feel rushed when we come here. The Caipirinha that they make is by far the best that I have had. It is very refreshing. The gourmet table featured all fresh salads and sides that you can’t get enough of. We come here often, thank you and see you again!

    Excellent, cozy, local, Oakland churrasco. The food was good even though maybe slightly more well then, I usually like. Meats were flavorful, tender, and plenty. The salad bar was plenty and great. The drinks were great. not too strong, not too weak, not too sweat, not too sour. I do wish they served Sangria as a pitcher to share.

    First I’d like to say if you are a big fan of Brazilian steakhouses- this place might not be it for you- they have very few selection of beef and mostly is over or undercooked. Service was ok. We had a nice lady taking our order. Cocktails were ok too. However I’d not be coming back to this place again. I received a comment from one of the bussers about how my boyfriend was wearing a cowboy hat. He said “ oh I think he missed the horse” in a very sarcastic and of course non requested opinion. Spending money $300 w tip for a comment like this and steaks that can not even be cooked properly. No thanks.
