We couldn't wait to try this restaurant because we loved the stable in Ridgewood Nj so much which has since closed. We couldn't believe the prices here but figured if its good food we don't mind, well we were very disappointed. All the different meats tasted the same and were not of good quality. The sides were average nothing to... More

My husband and I love going to Churrascarria Paladar once a week to sit at the bar and enjoy a couple of hours together. The owners are wonderful as are the staff. When we do go for dinner, the food never disappoints and is consistently delicious. The majority of the desserts are made by the owners so be sure to... More

The location has changed to the old Pump House site, but it was nicely renovated. The featured dinner is the Rodizio (approx. $49); all you can eat meats with salads, sides, etc. The food was delicious, I must admit I was surprised. The quality was terrific and the spices were different. The menu had plenty of non-meat choice and was... More

Came here for my son's birthday on a Sunday night and it was not too busy. If you order the rodizio you will not leave feeling hungry...really was too much food and there is absolutely no sharing.

This place is so much better than other Brazilian steakhouses with an all you can eat meat menu. Each dish is well prepared and fresh. The service is prompt and attentive. The restaurant is situated next to a river and the room ambience is appealing. I would recommend this restaurant for large parties.

The food is very good and fresh. The new location is very nice and big step up from the old location on main street. The Rodizio was excellent and I would highly recommend it.

Very good, with some affordable gems on the wine list if you know your Spanish wines. Some of the meats better than others. We like the chicken sausage, and short ribs most. Meat service pace was fine, but wait service slow. Also I would have liked a stop/go light for each person as when one or two of us tapped... More

Our carnivores club went recently and we enjoyed a meal that was really good, in a surprisinly nice refurbished setting. The former restaurant was dated and dark, but the freshly updated interior is nice but not overdone. The portions kept coming and we went deep into a second round before calling it quits. All 6 of us thought the food... More
