Good food, strange to only have one course, even though it lasted a long time! Would have liked the option of a dessert / cheese and coffee. Did not ask but they did not seem to be on offer.
Found the evening meal and wine to be a little expensive but very enjoyable just the same.

The food is great, slices of meat carved at your table every few minutes. Love it. It was our 2nd visit. The staff are friendly and it was reassuringly covid safe. My only gripe was that this time, like the last, the sausages came at the end of our meal when we were almost too full up.

The table wasn’t big enough to fit everything on for the two of us we were really cramped.

A lot of the meat was dry and half the items on the salad bar weren’t available and we weren’t allowed additional items before covid it was all you can eat.

This was not worth the £70 for the both of us.

We'd previously visited the Wakefield branch and rated really highly but York one just seemed a little less impressive. Great food and staff were nice but didn't feel as attentive and service was a little slower.

We were early for our booking but were escorted to our table which was very well spaced as were all the others. We did not understand that we did not have to choose only one of the eight meats on offer or that we could choose any 8 extras to go with our meats but the waitress Simona soon put us right when she came over to our table. We could choose from many different salad components and/or hot dishes. These were served quickly but we did have a hot beverage to help us ponder. Then the meat appeared on huge skewers. Igor carved pieces off which we took with our tongs provided. He asked how we wanted our meat and the meat he supplied was perfect for our taste. Igor came back and forth to our table with other meat choices. I sampled every one that was offered and the lamb and gammon were amongst the best I have ever tasted in any restaurant. I was very full and could not fault the staff who brought us a fresh jug of water with orange, lemon and ice when requested.

From the greeting by the Maitre-de to the final farewell every member of staff was helpful and courteous. Igor, in particular, was very helpful and considerate to us continuously offering to bring us any other items we might enjoy. Simona was quietly efficient and she was very busy with her allocation of tables.

We will not hesitate to go there again in the future and have recommended relatives and friends to try this Brazilian food. It was a wonderful first experience which you don’t often get at my advanced age!

Services really slow for drinks and salad etc. . Meat service was great and asked for our liking.. front of house was the issue.. no fizzy on tap but didn't tell us they had small bottles until we saw another customer with one. Only 6 salad items on my plate even though items ticked where clearly there.. service slow for drinks etc.. didn't leave service charge as to be fair didn't deserve it.

Nice to have a little variety with the salad bar. Could have been a little better with spreading out the meats and not so repetitive.

I'll start with the negatives, but read on as there were positives. Firstly many items on the buffet not available including roast potatoes & garlic mushrooms. I had the mushrooms on previous visit, they were delish so was quite disappointed.
The salad bar is no longer self service due to covid, but it takes the guys a long time to go get it for you and quantities were a bit skewed, massive piles of one thing and then a barely noticeable pile of another. Another solution needs to be sought for the buffet as it really doesn't work as it is. Perhaps have a server there doing the serving but allow the customer to go up and choose - wearing a mask of course!
The meat then starting coming and absolutely 100% of it was piping hot & delicious! It was obviously quality meat cooked by professionals and was plentiful.
We then ordered desserts and after a 15 minute wait we were told that two of the desserts had ran out. We didn't want an alternative so just waited for the other 2 to land although only one of them did, we waited another 10 minutes before asking if it was on it's way. We were assured it was but then 2 minutes later the waiter returned to ask what dessert we'd asked for so another short wait until the dessert finally came.
So at times it was a bit farcical HOWEVER, the manager clearly realized this and without us even having to raise a brow he apologized and knocked the cost of the desserts off the bill and applied a further discount. Proactive apologies rather that reactive go a long way so top marks to him.
I would go back as the food is great and I THINK we just got unlucky in terms of the service. However I would like to see an improvement to the buffet process.

The quality of the meat was exceptional and when you are completely full I recommend finishing with the rotisserie pineapple - absolutely mouth watering.
Great staff too at the York branch

Food ok, but theres better Brazil steakhouses. Doesn't suit current table service rules. Also they automatically add a 10% tip onto the bill, which given the already high prices is a sizeable amount.
