What an awesome experience! – We 'dropped' in at 630pm on a Sat evening. THEY WERE booked through 830pm but put us on the list to call in case of a cancellation. We enjoyed our time in Seattle and got a call at 730pm. It was two adults and two children. We were VERY VERY well taken care of. First, with the drinks and desert waitress explaining to us 'how it works' to the waiters that were on our table as soon as the 'sign to serve' was on green! Water alWAYS full, and food was coming for as long as you can stand eating it! The kids were amazed. Everything from the meat, to the salads to the deserts and specialty drinks was AWESOME!! To experience this place to it's full potential, PLAN ON STAYING A WHILE!! It's all you can eat folks, AND SO DARN WORTH IT!!!!!!
To have a 'bad experience' here, YOU have to go in with a seriously negative attitude. They were bending over back wards to make sure we had a fantastic experience!! Will go back when ever we can!
If you are looking for a fun place to truly enjoy food, THIS IS IT!

Terrible service – The place, atmosphere and food were ok . However, the service is by far the worst that I have ever experienced. I went there with my gf and we had been ignored couple times on purpose. The waiter brought the food to the table in front of us, skipped us, and brought it to the one behind us, and went back to the bar. We had eye contact and I am sure he knew I wanted the food. There's some food that I wanted to try and never had a chance, water never got refilled...I don't know if that's some discriminations there but nevermind cause I know I won't go there again anymore.
Meat, meat and more meat! – Delicious and fun -- try the drink of Brazil, the caiprinha, with your meal. A very long salad and vegetable bar starts out the meal. Then, throughout the meal, waiters bring long skewers of the exotically braised meat, chicken, pork, lamb and shrimp. They just keep coming and coming around until you tell them to stop. A kind of a gimmick, but amusing and delicious.
Meat on a stick until you can't eat anymore. – This is a great place for a night out, or to treat out of town guests visiting seattle. Its brazilian grill which means they bring you unlimited amounts of meat on a stick until you turn your card over indicating you can not possibly eat another bite. At lunch they have 9 different types and at dinner 19. Lunch is a much better deal if you are on a limited budget, but if you are like the people I dine with you will have to go back at some point to try the remaining 11 kinds. For the all you can eat price you also get all you can eat salad bar which often includes some warm sides as well. They also bring you the most delicious fried bananas at some point in the meal but unfortunately they will only bring this to you one time. If you work downtown or have the day off go for the weekday lunch for only 17$, but prepared to be stuffed and unable to return to work without a nap.
fantastic place! – Six of us went there for dinner,the place is vibrant,fun and extremely friendly,while we din't know what to expect our waitress guide us to the whole experience and it was awsome!! the 'mesa do frios" is superb with salads that I never seen in other places,the pasadores brougth all kinds of meats including bufalo,wild board,tenderloin etc etc over and over again tender,juicy and delicious..the wonderful brazilian music added to our experience..A great restaurant second to none!1 we'll be back soon for more...
Had a great time – Why do we go out to eat? For great food, and this was great food and tons of it. Four of us went out last Saturday night for a birthday celebration. Two of our party ate the meat and two had the cold bar option. I was very impressed with the cold bar and next time I go I will try more items from the cold bar and cut back on the NEVER ENDING supply of perfectly cooked meats.
Also the grilled pineapple is out of this world.
I'm sorry other reviewers did not have a fantastic dinning experience, but we sure did.
Good food, good location, good ambience – I'm quite sure people have their reasons for negative comments. As for us (family of 4), we enjoyed the Rodizio dinner very much. Perhaps the key is to make reservation, start early and request how well/raw you want your meat to be cooked. We went there at 5pm and everything was perfect since we're the first few parties. The service was quick and friendly. The presentation of the food was excellent and everything was abundant. Within the first 30 minutes, we have already sampled all varities of meat plus pineapple (you have to try it). I'd recommend this place if you like meat. Even if you're vegetarian, they have plenty of non-meat dishes to keep you entertained. It's true that towards the end of the night, some of the dishes were not being replenish but we were able to request the waitress to bring us what we want. Overall, we're very happy with the value, food and overall experience.
best grilled for cowboys – this restaurant is best for cowboys, their grilled foods are tasty and very astonishing... better taste it while you still can guys
saturday night chaos – We waited forever at the bar for a table, then asked if we could be seated in the lounge instead. Our server was also one of the bartenders and knew we had been waiting a very long time, so he went above and beyond to accomodate us. He bought us a round of drinks and was very attentive and friendly, which helped to make up for the infrequent meat service. Some cuts were very greasy and fatty, which offset the others that were dry and flavorless. We repeatedly asked our server for specific cuts which were then delivered as we'd asked, (more shrimp, peppersteak, pineapple especially) but it looked to us like the dining room was first in line for meat, the lounge getting what was left over. Oh well. On a positive note, we ordered a bottle of wine, and our server recommended another bottle instead which was a few dollars less than the one we'd ordered, and it was spectacular. These days, every buck counts.
