What's nice is it's like having lots of small plates with different meats as you visit with friends and no rush.

Nestled is a quaint boutique district of CDA this restaurant has everything going for it. A perfect destination with streets lined with Bavarian inspired shops and salons and a multiplex theater. Great place to spend a day of pampering. Unfortunately, the restaurant lacks any sort of appeal. The far end with any kind of a view at all is the bar, leaving the restaurant itself with a cafeteria style ambiance. The food is good and if you need to go to the bathroom you can get a look at what the cooks have on the grill. You know, because everyone wants to connect the dots from grill to bathroom. The old venue had a beautiful deck and view of the lake with smaller booth tables and the grill was right out where you could see it. Maybe size became an issue as it was often crowded. The food is still good however. Steak a little tough at times and portions were a bite at a time which coincides with the idea of the place. Our table server was poor at best but the meat servers were polite and made their rounds often. It could use a bit better management as the whole flow of food and service was not great. Sometimes we would get hit with more meat than we could handle and other times it seemed forever before we got anything at all. It was a Wednesday, so probably a bit of their slow period.

My family and I have the pleasure of hosting a high school student from South Korea...and I decided to bring her to The Grille from Ipanema for dinner tonight. And it was a huge success! She absolutely loved it! Spicy chicken and the Pineapple were her favorite. And to top it off our server Patrick was fantastic!! He made us feel very welcome and was very attentive to all his tables. Top notch service from him along with the young men coming around with the scewers. Thank you so much for a great dinner!

Wow...not what we expected. Friends from the area loved it. We hated it. The meats were over cooked, over salted and slow in arriving. The side dish serve yourself bar was a disaster lacking in organization and/or imagination. The pricing was very expensive in relation to the product delivered. Our suggestion for friends who recommend BBQ....stick to good old American style cue.

I've tried several different Brazilian restaurants while traveling around the US and this was the worse. Service was sporatic at best and the supporting 'food bar' was pitiful considering the price of the meal. The roasted meats were good - if/when they were brought to the table. As someone else said - this is a 'wannabe Brazilian' restaurant, but not there yet! To top it off, when I paid the bill - the cashier messed everything up between the other couple and us; mixed the charges and even though I tried to explain, she we incapable of understanding and/or correcting her mistake. Eating at this place was a costly mistake - recommend going some place else!
