Went for a Birthday Dinner. The food was good but the service left a lot to be desired. Several servers walked right past our tables and did not offer what they were serving at the time, until we mentioned this to our waiter they then were pushing food onto our plates. Will not go back... For the price of our... More

We had been to this restaurant before and did not like the served meats but liked the variety of the salad bar. We felt the meats were very overdone and tough. In our return we decided to just do the salad bar. There are enough items and variety to make a complete meal, and we are not vegetarians. 2 kinds... More

Very nice place. Comfortable atmosphere, linen tablecloths and napkins. We went for my son's birthday with 9 of us. Made reservations ahead of time so that helped and I would suggest that. The salad bar is self-serve so that was great. The meat comes around often so don't think you are going to miss out on something; if you pass... More

Be sure to go hungry because the food is definitely something to enjoy. We had been at several ole restaurants in the Orlando area, but we really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere here and we didn't feel rushed to get through the meal so they could sit someone else. Great experience and our out of town friends really enjoyed the experience.

Description
Ipanema Brazilian Steak House is a Churrascaria in the finest sense of the word. Our twelve authentic cuts and presentations of meat are seasoned with salt and roasted rotisserie-style over mineral coals imported from Brazil, basted continuously by their own natural juices. Served by traditional roving Gauchos, they are complemented by an opulent salad and vegetable bar, delectable desserts and delicious wines, beer, and cocktails.
