I brought 3 of my culinary students to your restaurant on Sunday night and the only thing the servers were bringing around was pineapple and beef. They came around with two pieces of chicken when we first arrived and then no more chicken. The beef was so rare that it was cold. It was also loaded with fat. We also... More

This wasn't our first time here, and, granted it was a Saturday night, service was exceptionally slow. The food was excellent as always, with plenty of variety, whether one wanted steak, chicken, pork, etc. The salad bar had a delicious assortment of dishes, including quinoa, coconut, hummus...too many to mention. Since it was my son's birthday dinner, I was being... More

Our party of six was looking forward to trying out Rodizio Grill. One of our party had made a reservation for six online. Apparently they misinterpreted this as a reservation for 4 which we only found out after waiting a half hour for a table. They took us up to the table and were like "you have six"? Back to... More

This place has really impressed me. This is my 3rd visit in three different cities--and it was fantastic.... Perfect compliment to date night with my wife before a concert....and close to all the venues. Service was great and the food was, as well.

The food was good but mediocre on service . They forgot to bring the wine we ordered . The bathroom was gross and looked like it had not been cleaned for two days or so .

Super meat - all kinds and of great quality - and the Salad buffet is superb! Delicious all over and the room itself is very nice. Highly recommendable.

Wonderful meal with my hubby. Salad bar has great options and the sides really complimented the 10 different meats that were carved at our table. Perfectly cooked and great flavor. The price is appropriate for what you get. Must try.

Service and atmosphere is excellent. Wide selection of meats to experience. Large salad bar for the light eaters in your group. This is a "must do," to put on yout list of downtown restaurants to take in.

We've been to Brazilian restaurants in Key West, Chicago and San Antonio. The Rodizio Grill doesn't measure up. We went here on New Year's Eve. I heard our waitress say that there was a special for New Year's Eve with a $5 up charge. The special included prime rib, shrimp and salmon. I also heard her say that the regular... More
