We enjoyed our first dinning experience at Rodeo very much. The food and service was amazing and our server, Sunny, was attentive and very friendly. Overall a great experience! We hope to be back soon.

I recently went with my girlfriends and had a great time! We heard about this place from a few friends, so we wanted to try it out for ourselves. There were waiters bringing out a variety of meats to us and also a buffet and...salad bar. There were a lot of different options to choose from so we found that everyone could be happy with what they got. I really enjoyed the meats, they were so yummy and were really tendor. We also really enjoyed the atmosphere. It is a very open space and the waiters were really friendly. Definitely going to go back with friends to celebrate an upcoming birthday!More

We went to celebrate a friend’s birthday on Saturday, July 24th, 2021, It was an 11 people reservation table. After the waiter took the beverage order, he came to the table with the cheese bread, but clarifying that one of us had to share the...bread because it was over... this was the beginning of our Rodizio Experience around 8:45 pm. The salad bar just isn’t all that vast, and there were most of the containers empty. The Rodizio experience continued MEAT time!!, they started with sausage but again same argument: “one of you has to share, unfortunately, we don’t have any more sausages” After the sausage, we had pork “delicious”, but the next meat was taking really too long to come to the table and the most that they offered was pork, by far we had only 4 or 5 different cuts of meat, again taking too long to come to the table. To be honest, we felt a little scammed on this restaurant, it was an all-you-can-eat without good salad, poor side dishes (only two: Fries and Rice with black beans), limited cuts of meat. Not what we expected, my point of reference is a "Porcao, Rodizio restaurant" in Miami, "Steak Master Rodizio" in Miami, with 16 different cuts of meat. A huge salad bar, cheese bread, and more than 10 side dishes including (rice, fried yucca, bananas, french-fried potatoes, black beans, farofa, and much more). The service is good but the All you can eat- Rodizio Experience is too poor. Pros: -Food quality and taste. -Service Cons: -AC -Doesn’t work. It was too hot. -Salad bar -Meat (quantity and cuts) -Cheese bread -Limited all you can eatMore

- The name is Brazilian but does not refer to a Brazilian steakhouse. The meats are not all made over charcoal/charcoal as in Brazil. - The price is very high and if you eat little, it's not worth going there. A very small coke costs...$4.50. A very simple alcoholic drink with lemon costs $14.00. The rodizio is $60 per person. The tip charged is mandatory, so whether you like the service or not you will have to pay between 18% and 20%. A couple will spend an average of $200.00. - The service is good and the restaurant is pleasant, but the food is not so good. - I think the value doesn't make up for it.More

2 Reviews in one. 1st visit with group of 8 (Oct 2019) If visiting with a group I recommend requesting the area across from the bar either on the floor or raised level. The servers can see you better for needs and it's more intimate...space where you'll be able to hear everyone in your party and still have access to the appetiser buffet and be able to see the dancers if you go for the show on Friday or Saturday night (Not amazing but fun to watch and get up and dance). 2nd visit with family (Feb 2020) If dining as a couple or 2 people I recommend requesting the floor area in the main room so your not lost in a mix of tables on the raised areas of the main room. The servers can see you better for needs and you can easily single for the food you would like. The food is made and served so fresh don't expect certain cuts to come by regularly. for instance if you want Salmon tell your server once you have your dining plates and they will make sure the next batch gets to you. Everything tastes incredible, you don't understand until you've tried it. I skipped all the chicken and pork and stuck to salmon and beef but I was told everything was great. If you go in knowing your Beef preferences you'll know which pieces to grab the most of when it comes. Save room for the pineapple at the end it's heaven take you time eating they keep it coming fresh all night. Lastly coming from a person who once worked in the service industry please tip at least 18% for these guys you will see they deserve it and tips are split amongst all levels of staff.More

DO NOT GO HERE FOR WINTERLICIOUS!! I went here recently for winterlicious dinner with my friends. There were 4 of us. I was appalled when we got the bill and our server said gratuity is included because it is Winterlicious. It was 20%!!!! This is...disgusting. I didn't say anything on the spot because I didnt know how to say it nicely. $43 +$8=51. Regular menu is $55. I mean this is a scam. The overall experience was not superb that it deserved 20%. I mean, they went around with the meat on a stick like what they are supposed to do. The only "special" thing we received was when we asked one of the servers if they are going to refill the shrimp and mussels on the salad bar. He came back out with a bowl of tiger shrimps and put it on our table. I thought that was nice but it was around 9pm and I understand if they do not want to put out more food on the salad bar.I was very excited but the shrimp was super salty. We only ate maybe 4/10. The meat was ok. We had limited selection because of winterlicious. Our favourite thing was that deep fried banana covered in bread crumbs.More

This restaurant reminded me most of a cruise ship buffet or an all-inclusive Caribbean resort, and not a good kind. Same glut of average food, same kind of suburban, middlebrow, often overweight crowd, similar cheesy entertainment (though guitarist/singer and the Carnival costume-clad dancers were very,...very enthusiastic, and it's not their fault that the place stinks). On top of everything, we had to wait half an hour to be seated even though we had a reservation. When the promised all-you-can-eat meat did arrive, it was overwhelmingly salty and kinda hit or miss - some tender and tasty, some burned and dry. Cuts are often tiny enough that you have to ask for seconds. We got completely ripped off on a bottle of Chianti that retails for $18 at the LCBO. So if you are into this kind of thing, then by all means, enjoy. But if you are a discerning restaurant patron, steer the hell clear of it. There are much, much better choices for what you'd pay here.More

Never again. Toronto is full of absolutely fantastic restaurants. This is not one of them. We arrived 10 minutes BEFORE our reservation at 8:15. We were seated 20 minutes AFTER at 8:35 meaning we waited 30 minutes to be seated even though we had reservations....By then, my husband and son were starving and hangry. The salad bar was ok, no better than your supermarket Longos or Metro store. The meat was way, way, way oversalted, the ribs were excruciatingly dry, the pieces offered were literally one forkful of beef or lamb at a time. We ordered a bottle of wine with dinner which the serving staff poured exactly once, and then we were on our own. But, they were never far with endless jugs of water since clearly the goal was to have you eat miniscule portions of supersalty meat and then fill up on water to end your meal as quickly as possible. The bill for three of us (3 Winterlicious and one bottle of wine) came to $252.10 with tax and tip for execrable service. When I think of the kind of food, drink, and service that would have bought us elsewhere, I'm sick with regret. This is terrible value for money and I will never set foot in this place again.More

I made a reservation online for 2 for New Year’s Eve and on the morning of received an email and call that it was cancelled. When I spoke to the assistant manager I was told that their online system has issues and she would try...to accommodate us but in the end couldn’t. Now I have nowhere to go for New Year’s Eve/ my birthday dinner. Extremely disappointing.More
