Our experience here was amazing! Valet parking is $7 + tip, parking around there is metered or far, so we opted for valet. The atmosphere/decor was romantic. There was a singer outside that was good and complimented the vibe. The dress code is business causal, which we wore, but people also wore jeans and sneakers. We had Sebastian as a server and he was polite and attentive. The cheesy bread is 100% gf and so good. I didn’t waste stomach space on the salad bar, not the reason we came here. I did have some of the parm and gouda cheese and the arugula and sundried tomato salad. I tried every meat that came out and loved it all. My favorite was the beef rib and the cajun ribeye. Richard brought around the grilled pineapple, holy moly, that stuff is amazing! We had him come back several times and he even brought around the grilled cheese with honey. That was a great finisher! Highly recommend this place!

The staff went above and beyond to ensure my girlfriend, who has celiac disease could have one of the most memorable meals of our lives. The staff was knowledgable, friendly and made special trips to bring her things she could eat. 11/10

The staff was wonderful. The service from start to finish was great. Our server, Maria, was very attentive and checked constantly to make sure my daughter was taken care of and was able to eat what she wanted. We are dealing with a new diagnosis, and the help was very appreciated. The manager, Jennifer, checked on us as well. We will definitely be going back.

Separate menu. They allow to keep the menu so you can reference as they come around with the meat. Staff is educated so you really don't need the menu.

They have a printout with all the food and their ingredients. we found it slightly difficult to go through and figure out everything that was GF. they had a section that was for all the GF options however it was out dated. Also at other Brazilian steakhouses all of the sides are gluten free unfortunately here only the cheese bread was. which was a disappointment.

Food was okay not great. very expensive didnt get sick but will likely not come back was not impressed. prefer Rodizio grill much better.

Lots of GF salad bar and meat options. Since this an all you care to eat affair, they give you a card that lists what salad bar and meat items are safe. You will not feel like you are missing out at all, as most items are GF. GF dessert options are great also, if you have any room left in your stomach! Cheese bites and mashed potatoes are amazing!

Staff was knowledgeable. Lots of options and they gave me a menu to know what meats and which items on the salad bar were GF. Be careful sometimes they served GF meats with not GF meats (so they offered me bacon wrapped chicken which was GF but on the skewer next to the chicken was sausage that wasn’t GF) so I had to wait until the chicken came by on its own. They have GF cheddar biscuits and GF desserts. Just be careful with the salad bar and cross contamination if you are very sensitive.

Be careful at the buffet style salad bar but waiters are knowledgeable and there are lots of options. I've eaten here 3 times and have never been "glutened". The cheese puff rolls are amazing!!! Make sure you go in with an empty belly!
