Had a pleasant meal with a visiting family member. Talkative and happy crowd. Be prepared for a noisey atmosphere. Generally good choices among the meats available as the main course.

Food was typical Espetus quality. This review isn't for the food, as the title teases. Upon receiving the bill we noticed that each Soda Water (from the gun) refill was $2.50, for a total of $12.50. A member of our party noticed this and queried...More

Thank you for your comments. Though we do understand your concern, there is a charge for any beverage other than plain water in our restaurant, as well as most others. We have no plans of implementing a seating, nor utensil charge, and hope you’ll decide...More

Was there last night in a private room for an adult birthday party. Although the room was noisy, all worked out very well. We stayed long after the restaurant was cleaning up the main dining room. We were NOT rushed out. The food has improved...More

First time there. Excellent service & food. All you can eat for set price. Parking a little difficult. Suggest early reservations.

Espetus is a Brazilian steak house. The choices are as straightforward as possible: meats, with not too much variety, but as much as you want--and that is why you go there. So, no exotic meats, unless you count an occasional chicken heart as such. But...More
