For ambience, it's a good place and once a week on Friday, they serve lunch. Unfortunately, the meats are overcooked and not juicy. Perhaps, it's o.k. for people who like well done meat but not for me. It's buffet style but for entre of 5 or more different meats, they serve you at the table bringing the meats to you... More

The most expensive restaurant I've ever eaten at. The absolute best food I've ever had. Don't fill up at the salad bar, but it was fabulous. The entre's were astoundingly out of this world. Make sure you're prepared to fork out $100 for two. If you can afford it, you won't regret it.

They keep your stomach filled with amazing food. They're was nothing wrong with the visit it was perfect. I would go there everyday if it was allowed. They keep the food coming and it's cooked to perfection. And they have a great food bar with other things on it.

This is an unusual steak house. In their own words "you can eat an endless bounty of succulent meats and poultry served fresh from the grill......." For the hours of operation you need to call the steak house. I can say that the meat is delicious, and it comes, indeed, in an endless supply. The price is not cheap depending... More

This place was fairly average, but the worst part was that there were virtually no people in the restaurant and we were there on a Wednesday night. The food was average for this type of restaurant and the service was good. Not sure I would go back

OMG... There were 10 of us. Very accommodating to a large party. The waiters are wonderful. When we went there were 12 meats that were in rotation along with a cinnamon and sugar pineapples. Start with the meat first, DON'T fill up on the hot and cold bar, or you will miss out on the amazing meats because you will... More

We visited Ipanema on August 30. The staff is welcoming and very attentive, but not annoying. The table service is neat and clean with cloth napkins, etc. The atmosphere is pleasant with appropriate background music. Of course, the food is the thing at Ipanema. I have never seen such an extraordinary salad bar. Foods from all nations are represented very... More

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.
