Delicious! – The flavors were exceptional. The open food atmosphere promoted a fun evening for our group. The service was above average.
I would recommend coming hungry...
Great food and service, lunch special is only $17 can't beat this place for the price!
AMAZING!!! – The best place to eat amazing food and have a great time!!
To be able to experience all that variety of meats is just mind blowing. The concept is amazing!
Loved the Salad bar, specially the pork salad.
The desserts( I had the Brazilian Lime Pie) was like melting in my mouth.
Great service( they never stop for a minute, coming with new items and asking if everything is ok)
We'll be back for my wife's BDay in 2 weeks!
Excellent experience – My daughter and her boyfriend took us to Rodizio Grill while my boyfriend and I were on vacation in Salt Lake City, Utah.
There were so many wonderful items on the salad bar, it was hard not to taste all of them. There was also a hot bar with mashed potatoes, 2 kinds of soup and other hot items.
The pineapple was soooo good, especially if you got the outer layer that was hot and carmelized (YUMM-EE!!). I liked the fried bananas also. They might have been a smidge better served with honey and cinnamon.
I found some of the meat slices better than others, but that is ones own personal preference. I do think the meats served were tasty, served hot and I was not dissappointed in the serving size.
As far as the service goes, it was a busy Saturday night, plus it was also prom night. We did not have to wait at all to get a table. We pretty much walked in and got seated, however, service was a slow start. We were overlooked the first couple of "go-arounds" and when my daughters' boyfriend brought this to the attention of one of the waiters and all was rectified.
If I ever go to the Rodizio Grill again, I will get less from the salad bar to make room for more meat. (The salad bar is REALLY good).
All in all I think we had a really good experience and, although a little pricey, would definately go again.
Worst service anywhere – Feburary 13, 2010 1:30 p.m. initial wait wasn't to bad 10-15 minutes. Waiter came to greet us after another 10 minutes at table. they were not busy but the whole staff was setting at a table talking. In the 45 minutes we were in the resturant we were given our drinks with fried bananas, and corn bread, offered the salad bar which was not the best and had 3 rovers come to our table. First with pineapple that was so bitter and cold we did not eat it. Second a tiny bite of chicken wrapped in bacon. that morsel was okay I guess. Third a beef tip which we were both served off the outside edge so thin it was just a hard crust of yuck. the waiter never came back to our table until I stood up and put n my coat. Then asked if we were ready for the best part of the meal, Desert. I asked him how we would know what was good since we had never been offered any food. Anywhere else you would have a manager come to see if they could fix things but not here. He slammed down the bill and said he would be our cashier. 42.00 later and still hungry we were happy to see the end of that place.If you want a real Brazilian experence go uptown to the gateway to Tucanos. They have great food and service plus atmosphere to beat all others.
Lion or Vulture – Meats--They roughly serve around 2 chicken, 2 or 3 pork, and about 4 beef cuts or items. Plus you have the grilled pineapple ( must get that, only if it is nice and hot.)
*First impressions are good--after a few times, it becomes sort of a regular experience. The Trolley Square location.....I think has lowered their rate of table service, It took the men a while to come around to our table, after weaving in and out of the other dining areas.
*Meats--I think they salt some of their meats a little too much. You sometimes eat less after a night out there than at a regular steak house.
*Pineapple--Got to get it when it is hot,only.
Better than Braza Grill ( same set up, but nicer and a bit more expensive per person.)
The way they serve the food is an experience the first time out, but I would rather just get a cut of meat that is the same, rather than small pickings.
not the best choice we ever made – While I found one item that came by that was good-- there was nothing making me want to return for more. The gourmet salad bar was a bunch of trays of romaine lettuce with different things sprinkled on the top, along with canned olives and some salads that tasted straight from the box. And The feature meat and cheese tray was pepper jack and cheddar cubes from walmart and Turkey pastrami( one step up from bologna). Chuck-a-Rama puts on a better spread, and if you want truly amazing--in the same price range go to THE ROOF, by the time you add drinks and desserts at rodizio you are right up to the same price point as THE ROOF. We chose to rodizio as we had heard good things, We were sadly disappointed. The service was OK, but the food quality is where they missed the boat. The beef tender was tender enough to chew, but everthing else was so dry or tough that my jaw got tired of chewing. And if your after exotic, The most exotic things we saw where quail eggs( they say they're and aphrodisiac) and chicken hearts--YUMMY). I probably sent more food away uneaten that I actually ate. The pineapple was OK, but the other appetizers were bland and tasteless-- The banana was kinda a flashback to baby food days. Nothing in the "FULL RODIZIO" left us wanting more. We left hungry and went to The Bakery for a night cap to satisfy our need for good food. Anyway, If I need scarf and chuck, I'll go to Chuck-a-Rama, and If I want amazing "all I can eat", I'll go to THE ROOF, or sunday brunch at the Little America , or Grand America. But as for the rodizio, We Won't be back any time soon. Try if you like, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Happy eating.
Good Food Bad Service – I met up with a large group of girls at Rodizios last weekend. When I arrived I asked the hostess about the reservation and she was basically clueless and had no idea who I was talking about. She was no help at all and gave me a blank stare. The staff at the front appear to be young and inexperienced, which is sad because the price of the meal is somewhat pricey. You would think the restaurant would at least find people with some intellect to run the front. 45 minutes later, I was able to find other people from my group, and I found out that they were all in a banquet room next to the restaurant, no thanks to the Rodizio staff.
The banquet room was okay, but there was a huge hole in the ceiling. That ruined the ambience. The food was good but some of the servers who brought the meat around seemed to be in a bad mood. The woman who worked directly with our party was very nice, it was just ALL the other staff that seemed to be off.
It was a weekend night so the restaurant was very busy. I would not recommend any large parties to come here. We made a reservation and we still had lots of problems with some of our ladies being directed to where we were. Seriously the girls who run the front are clueless. Rodizio should really consider making some staff changes.
test – This is a great place to eat meat. This is a great place to eat meat. This is a great place to eat meat. This is a great place to eat meat.
