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 house in Vegas a couple of times and you felt you were in an upscale... More

Interesting place. We had great choices in food, the atmosphere was relaxing. The staff would come around with more if you wanted. And the buffet was filling. The only thing was the cost. We never went before because who can eat that much to feel like you ate what you paid for. If you don't mind paying a lot of... More

I don't eat red meat, but I have never tasted chicken and lamb better that what I ate here! If you're vegetarian there is a salad bar area with soups that is excellent. Definitely try the beets, asparagus and pineapple that they bring around. Waiters and managers are extremely cordial. This is a great place to propose to a significant... More

A very disappointing dinner; incredibly mediocre. Could not even identify the food; restaurant too dark and name cards unintelligible. Temperature in restaurant was way too cold. No dessert and charged for coffee. Horrendous service, wait staff never cleared table, offered more water or more meat. Advertised as Brazilian steakhouse; what a joke. Don't bother going.

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.
