Glad we happened to chose to eat at Ipanema the last day before the corona virus shut down all restaurants. For our last meal out of the house for an unknown time, we were super happy to eat ALL the meat!
Lovely service. Servers were professional and pleasant. Meat was wonderful.

Wonderful selections of meats grilled to perfections. Loved trying all the new flavors. The staff was most pleasant and accommodating. Don't fill up on the salad bar (which was hard as it had such a varied, excellent selection) as the meats keep coming and you'll want to enjoy everyone of them. We'll be back!

In the odd chance I end up eating out, this is my go to place. I love the service and people seem to really enjoy themselves and the food in this welcoming ambience. My wife and I used a Groupon ($30 for $60, I believe) for the first time here and it felt like the servers were accustomed to them since it wasn’t a hassle at all.

Pricey if you don't have a groupon. Compare to other brazilian steakhouses, it doesn't have as much options. The unique thing they have here is the grilled pineapple, but everything else is just standard. SErvice was good though, very attentive.

The meat was very good, and the salad bar was excellent. You will not go hungry, and the staff is always attentive. They have zero issues with groupons- I think every around us was using a groupon.

After visiting similar restaurants in the area, we tried this one 3 times recently, and my wife and I concluded that this one is the one if you want quality meat. Except for one piece out of 3 visits, meat always tasted good here, and last time it was so tasteful and delicious that we decided that The Grill from Ipanema deserves a good review from us and here it is.

Not the best but not the worst. We expected a little bit more pizzazz for our buck, especially $55/head and $13 for 8 oz drinks. The buffet was disappointing, but the meat selections were great. Three times I asked for plantains and three times I was forgotten. We used a Groupon to check this place out and I realized only $28 was taken off, versus the $60 that I paid for. I was already half way home (Olympia), before I realized the error. Definitely not worth coming back. I’ll stick to the one in Tacoma by the mall.

For my 2nd experience at a Brazilian Steakhouse it was far less than my initial experience. I would not recommend this restaurant. ESPECIALLY if it's a special occasion as you will be disappointed.

Well salted, wonderfully roasted over charcoal, crispy on the outside, nice and medium rare on the inside... the flavors were amazing and intense. Perfect for those on a keto, paleo or low-carb diet (just skip the pineapple, salad bar or the plantains if you're doing that), and everything tasted fantastic.

Easily the best Brazilian steakhouse we've ever been to, and we've been to a few. If you've been to one, you know the drill - green means "more meat!", red means "stop". And you certainly get your money's worth - in both variety and quality. I'm a total foodie, and love complex dishes with elegant palettes for elegant palates... but sometimes? You just want to go total carnivore.

This was total carnivore. And it was delicious.

We had to wait for about 10 minutes after our check-in time. Then the hostess gave us a really lame excuse about it.

We went here for Valentines Day. They had called about two days before hand to confirm my reservation and I forgot to call back. Our reservations were still there and we were seated as soon as we arrived. All the staff were friendly and helpful for our first time here! I was super impressed with the salad bar, it had several different sides. My favorite was the beet salad. I definitely recommend this to any first timers!

We got there right after you opened. Our server wasn’t bad or anything but not friendly and didn’t come around much..didn’t ask if we wanted another drink when picking up our empty glasses. Just the little things missing. The guys with the meat were very nice.

We had a wonderful lunch here yesterday to celebrate my mom's 90th birthday and my 60th! We had a good-sized group and service was impeccable. This is a great special occasion spot for sure! The salad bar, though smaller than other Brazilian steakhouses I've been to, was laid out attractively and had the usual selection of delicious items. Non-carnivores could easily make a wonderful meal out of the salad bar alone! The rodizio experience was lovely, although most of the meats were a variation on beef. I would love it even more if they would add lamb and seafood (salmon in passionfruit sauce is my favorite from another much-loved rodizio, and you can never go wrong with prawns), as well as pork ribs. The grilled pineapple was the hit of the table ... everyone got seconds on that! All in all we had a fantastic time and highly recommend this restaurant.

My experience was amazing. My groupon was expiring so I made a reservation for me and my partner. They called when we were 2 minutes away saying they couldn't seat us as their front room was flooding due to the heavy storm. They asked if it would be ok to sit us at their sister restaurant Buenos Aires. The staff and managers were absolutely amazing for accommodating us. Food was amazing and the steak was beautifully cooked. For dessert we ordered the Flan. It so very creamy, flavorful and perfect balance of sweetness we had to order another one to go! We will definitely be returning to both restaurants in the future! Thank you again for your amazing service!

excellent, as always. We go there every few months. My only complaint is the run-down bathrooms in an otherwise beautiful environment.
