The restaurant was within walking distance for us so we decided to give it a try. From the moment we walked in it was uncomfortable. The staff looked us up and down. Like what are you doing in here. The steaks were raw. Asked for medium and medium well. Mine was tolerable the other was horrifically uncooked.

Went with my family for lunch. Place was very hot no a/c. Prices were high, but once food arrived even more so as portions were small, especially appetizers and salads. Meat was good but sides were small and not what you expect for the price you are paying. Expected more.

Love this place. The service is really good and the food is fantastic. If you ever go there, order the 'rollizo'. This beef cut is really the best in the restaurant and is absolutely recommended. It is juicy, flavorful and the best you can request. My only thing is, the bread... sometimes it seems like they save the bread that was uneaten by other customers and serving it back again to others. Skip the bread and enjoy a great meal!!

Overall this is a great restaurant. The only issue it has, is the inconsistency on what they serve. You may have a perfect rib eye on monday, and order the exact same plate one day later and find a completely different taste. Location is great.

The food is amazing! And if you're not that into meat, there are plenty of other options you can pick from!
Great place to go with family, friends or business! And the service is great!
