I ate at this Brazilian bar b que restaurant several times. There is a large salad bar, which is more than vegetables. They have sushi, shrimp, pasta, hot and cold vegetables, and more. You could eat just the salad bar and be full. After or during the salad bar, waiters walk around with different types of bar b que meats. There is turkey, pork, ribs, steak, chicken, beef ribs, and more. I would think the menu changes. Everything was very good. I was stuffed. The service is very good. The waiters (the men who walk around with the cooked meats) are very helpful to get what you want. The price is $40 plus tax and tip for one full meal. There is a full service bar. During peak times, the line is long.

I am a native New Yorker and will keep to the directness of how we are known to be :) Food: Excellent! It's a Brazilian Steakhouse so, come hungry! It's all you can eat! If you're not familiar with this dining experience, let me prepare you. First, there are cards on the table with a green and red side, then there are servers that come by with different types of grilled meats. Ranging from several types of beef to chicken. As long as you still feel like eating you leave the green side up, when you are stuffed you turn up the red side :) Drinks: Excellent. Caipirinhas are great! Space: Coxy, large open space. Scene: People watching. Romantic. Gorging! All you can eat for $60! Crowd: 20-50s Great for date night or get togethers. Service: Excellent, very courteous & professional.

I've been to several churrascaria-type brazilian restaurants in the DC area, but this was my first trip to one in NYC. Waited 25 minutes past our reservation time, while other walk-ins were seated ahead of us, so it did not start well. We were then given the table right next to the kitchen entrance, not pleasant either. The meat was good, and that salad bar looked nice. The dinner price is 30% more than similar places I have been to, so it was not a good value, considering. All servers and staff were very pleasant. Won't be back.

I've only been to a few Churrascarias in my life, so I don't have much to compare this one to. That said, my experience here was excellent and I would go again in a heartbeat if I had the money. The salad bar and sushi were a wonderful way to start the meal. And each cut of meat (with literally one exception) was cooked to perfection and so amazingly yummy. My first time here was a big group dinner, so we had a little of everything not just from the salad bar and the meat but also side dishes/appetizers. I really loved the fried polenta -- been a long time since I had that done right. The friend plantains also had me going back for more than one serving. I got to sample all of the cakes they had for dessert plus the sorbet and tiramisu. The cakes (except the cheesecake) all had the spongy, coffee-soaked texture of tiramisu, though each was 'soaked" in something other than coffee. Some at my table don't like that texture, but I do. YUM. The cheesecake was heavenly -- light/not dense but with body and such robust taste. Best way to end the evening.

Went on a Friday night for my husband's 50th birthday. The food was spectacular (as always) but what I really want to stress was the service. From the time we walked in until we left, we couldn't have been treated any better. The staff is incredible! Worth every penny and then some!

Unfortunately I did not enjoy the meat. I was surprised that the meat was either poor quality or unseasoned when compared to an authentic Brasilian churrascaria. The service was great everyone was very nice and quick to offer more food but being someone who has spent time in Brasil and grown up being fed original homemade Brasilian dishes this food does not compare. Salad bar was large but the salads I ate were mediocre at best. I wish there was somewhere that I could really get a taste of Brazil in this city!!!
