AUTHENTIC BRAZILIAN STEAKHOUSE
The Grill From Ipanema in Seattle is all about Rodízio, a popular Brazilian style of enjoying dinner among friends and a truly unique dining experience. Rodízio offers a wide variety of different cuts of grilled meats slowly roasted in specially designed charcoal grills. Served continuously by "passadores" or "gauchos" with food brought on skewers or carved to order tableside, servers make their rounds until guests can’t take another bite. Dining at The Grill From Ipanema also includes unlimited visits to the "mesa de frios" (cold table) for an array of cold cuts, cheeses, and exotic Brazilian specialties.

    Slow start, but the food was excellent. The salad table was full of tasty options and the table-side meat servings were delicious and kept on coming. We were overwhelmed and for the price, it was a super meal. The barbecue meat skewers were cooked perfectly. The waiting staff were excellent.

    Meat was overlooked, dry, and under seasoned (even though we told our server we all preferred medium rare). Desserts weren’t very good. Service was bad. No birthday acknowledgment from our server. Overall, we felt neglected by our server. Pao de queijo was not authentic.

Buena experiencia mi hijo de 14 meses disfruto cada corte de carne como si fuese un verdadero experto además de disfrutar del pan de queijo. El mejor de todos

    Disappointed that the manager has changed again. We’ve been going here for years, were told to just let them know we’re coming, they would be sure there were options for my son who has food allergies. They have always accommodated by bringing him fresh steamed vegetables & salad. Not this time. Nothing at salad bar okay for anyone with gluten/dairy allergies. Was offered a plate of beets & “steamed” vegetables that were browned. After questioning, told they were roasted. Cross-contamination issues, for sure. We will probably just go to Novilhos next time- its 14 miles closer, and why bother if, for $300 plus $40 tip, and $16.50 to park, all my son could eat was meat. Update: my son is sick today.

    First time dining there and I had a great time!!! the wait staff was so kind and very attentive (they accommodated one of my party's request for having the meat cooked a little more) and were checking on us often. The food was AMAZING!! Try the house sirloin!! The drinks were also excellent! I can't wait to come back here to dine again.

    Patrick was our server, he was WONDERFUL! He took very good care of us and the rest of the team acted in concert to ensure we always had full plates and glasses whenever we wanted anything. They were present but not intrusive. Friendly and easy to ask for anything we needed. This is both an excellent meal and a fun experience.

    I have gone to brazilian steakhouses (churrascaria) my entire life. I have seen great ones, good ones, bad ones, and The Grill from Ipanema. The first time in my life I left a brazilian steakhouse still hungry and ate almost no meat. They have around 1/6 of the necessary staff/food as any other churrascaria would have. It took around 40 minutes for the first waiter to show up to our table. Then 30 minutes for each subsequent piece. Normally at a churrascaria, if you have the green sign up, the waiters come nonstop and you have to switch to red sign. The meat was average to bad quality. Most cuts served were bad cuts. I saw 1 serving of Picanha and the rest Tier B and C cuts. Additionaly, the Picanha was terribly cooked and the waiter was not taught how to cut a Picanha. I had never seen someone cutting a Picanha on the wrong side. Let alone at a Churrascaria. This is the first time I write a Yelp review. I'm normally lazy to do it, but this place deserves it.

    First and foremost, I would like to let you know that our experience in your restaurant last night was disappointing. My boyfriend had been away for months including on his birthday and we wanted to celebrate his special 40th at your restaurant. I included in the reservation under “special request” and “occasion” his favorite(chocolate cake), but we unfortunately did not get. When we arrived, the hostess was wonderful, but our waiter looked like he didn’t want to be there. He lacked of customer service-no smile, didn’t check on us at all after he gave us our drinks. On top of that, he forgot our plantains, brazi bites and polenta plate. We were hoping for a fun experience, but instead, we were both very dissatisfied and disappointed. Thank you.

    Food was okay. Ate salad bar only and there was a fairly limited selection compared to other Brazilian Steakhouses. Service was slow but seemed to be due to low staffing

    The food was good and the service went well until the end. Drink service was extremely slow - our first round took 20+ minutes, the 2nd round took another 20+ minutes and when I received my 2nd mojito, it had about 8 lime slices and no mint. I requested a new one which I waited an additional 15 min for before I asked to cancel the drink order. The server was irritable at that point and kept mentioning the inconvenience of whether the bartender might have already made the drink or not. He added the 2nd mojito to the tab even though I asked to cancel it and continued to comment on the inconvenience but eventually agreed to remove the charge. The experience was great up until then, and was obvious that he had moved on to prioritize the larger tables as opposed to our party of 2.

    Married couple. Dinner before a concert at the Moore. Good food and mostly very friendly waitstaff. Fast, because you don’t wait for your specific entree to be prepared, you simply accept the offerings as they emerge from the kitchen

    The food is everything!! What makes it better are the servers who remember the specifics of what kind of meat you like and focus on bringing it to you or bringing it well-done. I’m not a fan of getting up to use the salad bar to get sides. I prefer the old model where they brought it to the table. It’s inconvenient to continuously get up for the sides when you run out. That’s my only complaint. Everything else is worth it!!

    My partner and I were sat at a table and left for over 20 mins. No one brought us waters, greeted us, or even acknowledged our presence. The host both when we arrived, and when we decided to leave without being served, was video chatting on Snap Chat with her legs up on the host desk. The salad bar looked dirty, the food options were sparse in comparison to other Brazilian Steakhouses such as Fogo de Chao for example, and frankly I am never one to write reviews but I feel it just had to be done in this situation. The table we were sat at was one of the raised circular booths and the seats were ripped, stuffing missing, lumpy and very uncomfortable to sit on. My partner and I were extremely disappointed seeing as how this was a special night for us. We left after 20 mins having never even been acknowledged.

    The food was amazing and exactly what I expected. This was my 3rd time going and they never disappoint! The servers were able to accommodate to our needs since we were a table of 6. While I was bummed they were out of the cheese balls, I was extremely satisfied with their collection of meats (+garlic shrimp) that were available and the salad bar, especially their garlic rice. The only thing I would point out is that their beef tends to run from rare to medium (degree of doneness). So if you like your meat medium well to well done, this might not be for you.

    Terrible service. Had a table for 15 and was never asked if we wanted another drink. Food came very slow and the place was not busy. 18% gratuity was added but had terrible service. Asked for shrimp 4 times before we ever received it. Shrimp came around multiple times but not to our table. Overall experience was terrible. They did not deserve the 18% gratuity
