Ipanema is a fun restaurant for couples! The waiters come around with all the meats you can imagine. The buffet is filled with salads, pasta, breads and more! Come hungry- there is so much to choose from. It is expensive but well worth it. Service...More

We took my grandson here for lunch and he had a ball. You "order" additional meat selections by turning over a card on your table and a waiter soon arrives with more. What a thrill for a hollow-legged teen. While the meat entrees are very...More

Chris, you will have to contact the restaurant directly. I have no knowledge of their brunch menu. I would, however, tell you you should book a reservation for anything there. They are pricey, but worth it !!!!

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.
