If you like meat -- I mean, really, really like it -- you will love this ridizio. Like all such places, it features an army of waiters bringing a succession of grilled marinated meats on skewers. You'll get drunk, full, and may even experience palate fatigue that lasts for hours, owing to all the salt. But you will have, for once, had your fill of animal flesh.
A true churrascaria in NYC – Great variety of meats and salad bar. The service is top notch. Make sure to request PICANHA NOBRE to your servant...its the best and most expensive cut. :O) Trust me, this is just like nice churrascarias in Brazil. Make sure to go there hungry.
... – Food was good for the first hour but then you eat yourself into a steak hang over! Wayyyy too over priced for something that will put you out of commission for a week.
Great Steakhouse for parties of 4 or 5 + – Really filling and high quality meats. Flip the red to green and the waiters will come over and cut fantastic meat over your plate. Good for parties but also pricey. They also have a great seafood buffet and salad buffet as well. Drinks are expensive but I think you can get a group deal for a cheaper then eating with one person. Which brings me to the next point it is not the type of place you bring a date. But I recommend it for sure.
Immaculately clean, awesome food and service. – I've been in their kitchen, it's IMMACULATELY clean. It's one of the only places in NY whose kitchen I have been in and wouldn't hesitate for a second to eat there. The food is some of the best I have eaten, the atmosphere in the dining area is amazing. Take a few moments looking up from your plate at the cieling. The service and settings... All top notch.
Unbelievable!!! – I was told not to eat anything all day before I come here. I'm glad I followed the instructions. I didn't go crazy with the meat because there was so many other delicious dishes to try. Everything was fresh and yummy. There is a plenty of seafood and they bring to your table rice, beans, polenta, fried bananas, homemade steak sauce, cheese bread 9t o die for), and mashed potatoes. Not to mention there are people coming over to your table with racks of prime rib, short ribs, chicken, sausage, and several different cuts of steak. Yeah, and then there is a dessert cart which will add that extra sweet taste you will need.
Snooty Service for a wannabe Foga De Chao – You get what you pay for. The food is good and the price is high.
Unfortunately, you also get snooty service. What baffles me is how an entirely unoriginal concept could be so snooty about its service. When you go to Daniel, Per Se, etc - they are warm and welcoming and you have a great experience.
I didn't see any Michelin stars on the wall, nor people queuing like at the Little Owl, but yet several of their employees, including "Ricardo" treated us as if we were lucky to be there.
The real luck is that I can stop by a better version of a Brazillian steakhouse in Dallas or Atlanta, where people have better manners.
Great food, service could be better – We ate there on Mother's Day and I accounted for that fact in my review. Party of 6 adults. We were seated reasonably quickly with a full house. Head waiter greeted us but was rarely seen during the dinner. No wine list offered. We had little attention from the drink waiter (surprising as this is a big money-maker for them) and had to repeatedly ask for wine and beer replenishments. The headwaiter assisted with some drink orders near the end of dinner after I flagged him down. He was friendly and polished.
Desert was a bit hodge-podge. The cart was rolled in and we made selections and were served. Coffee was not even offered as there was no drink waiter. We had to flag one down.
Port wine was offered and I think it was comp'ed or part of the desert service.
Had a good time - the buffet, sides and the meat courses were all very fresh and flavorful. The meat waiters were attentive.
A must try for any serious carnivore – Wow! Went with my co-workers for the first time on a Thursday night. The entire staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Our host made a great wine recommendation, but heck, I went for the meat and I was definitely "blown away" by the sheer quantity and quality. An endless parade of 15 juicy, tender perfectly prepared cuts of beef, pork, chicken, turkey, a suckling pig, two kinds of ribs and my favorite, the leg of lamb. It was the best I've ever had! Even the salad and casserole bar was impressive. The freshness and quality gave us a hint at what was in store for us with the main course. Great for group dining, we had a blast. I'll definitely be back!
Top notch! – As you walk in from a wintery NYC evening, you embrace the one you love and bring her into a romantic atmosphere. The hostess seats you, then you are serviced by a front and back waiter to cater to your every need. The delectable, yet filling appetizer bar awaits you..Dont eat too much of this!!!! Then its meat time, my wife had never tried the lamb but only to say it had taken the prize of being her #1 choice of the evening,
I would reccomend this restaurant in NYC and staying in Midtown W 49th..Between 6 & 7. This is a first class experience to share with someone you love..I did!
Great food, high prices, snobby hostesses – The welcome in Churrascaria as well as the farewell were pretty bad. But once you pass the snobby, rude and unfriendly hostesses, that don't seem to care at all you can actually have an enjoyable evening (I have to mention though that the lady at the coatcheck was friendly). The Salad Bar is huge and the selection great, but best is to pass up on it completely so you can enjoy all the meats and leave a little room for dessert. The meat selection is wide and great. They come by often and definitely leave you satisfied. Some waiters are more friendly than others. The highly recommended Mojito is not all what it's hyped up to be, go rather for a strong red to go with your meat. Dessert was fantastic and even though you are so full you can't breathe once they pass by with the trolley it's impossible to say no. The price is shockingly high but for a special evening definitely worth it. Even though the service was spotty I would recommend it to friends.
