Pros: Wide variety

Cons: Slow service, small serving

.

Knowing that Saturday afternoon/evening can be a busy time, my family made reservations for a birthday dinner at Rodizio Grill days prior to going there. Apparently, Rodizio Grill wasn't aware of the same foot-traffic issue - because they only had six servers in the restaurant and half of their tables were closed. The hostess explained that because of a "rush" in the morning, they were unable to seat our party of six right away despite our reservations. We waited in the lobby for nearly half an hour.

While we were waiting, we also noticed the lack of food being passed around by the servers. Supposedly, when a customer turns up the green side of their tumbler, the servers come by with more meat. There were a lot of empty plates and green tumblers in the time we spent waiting in the lobby.

Slow service is forgivable when there's a rush, but it seems like they should have been more prepared. Their failure to honor our reservations made my brother want to change restaurants; this idea was echoed by the whole family when we got to our seats. When we were finally seated, we sat down to filthy dishes. My mother had something splattered on the side of her glass; my father had something on his glass too, a spot of food on his knife and something dry and crusty all over his napkin; my brother also had a large spot of dry food in his glass; my napkin was either dusty or covered in something like flour. The waitress (who took quite a long time to appear) offered us their traditional fried bananas (?) and began rattling off their menu items. However, we decided to leave at that point - without a bite of food.

To their credit, the waitress rushed over and grabbed the manager when she saw us leaving, who attempted to make it right. He offered us a few comps, but we told him if the dishes were that disgusting, we couldn't imagine what the food was like. Plus, the food is just too expensive for the service we had received.

I'm sure that if we had eaten in a peak dinner hour, the service at Rodizio Grill would have been better - but they should have been more prepared for a busy Saturday. (This is not abnormal for downtown Denver) However, my family and I will not be giving them the chance to prove my theory correct. I have NEVER walked out of a restaurant before, but I'm very glad I did this time.

Pros: Manager seemed proactive

Cons: Filthy dishes, long wait despite reservations

The food is super good, but the service is a little slow. I've been there about five times, but every time I've been there the service was always slow. Prepare to wait. I really like how servers come to your table and you can tell them how much meat, or whatever, you want.

Rodizio Grill is the place to go if you are in the mood to eat meat. This Brazilian style restaurant offers a salad and vegetable buffet while the main course is served by waiters carrying skewers of a wide variety of different meats freshly cooked. These are served to you at your table. If you are a meat eater this is the place for you.

I was doing a low-carb diet and decided to eat some delicious meats. We drove downtown only to discover that the only parking for Rodizio Grill is standard "downtown parking." It was pouring rain and we had to squeeze dollars into one of those cheap parking money things. The meal was delicious. I didn't like all the meats, but the couple I did like, I really LOVED. I probably won't go back just because of the overall cost and inconvenience.

Rodizio's is a great place to go to if you are having a night out on the town. The reason being that it will take you a long time to tie one on since you'll be so full when you leave this restaurant. The salad and sides bar comes first.

First off, let me say the food is great. The tenderloin and top sirloin are awesome. Stay away from the chicken hearts though. The place, albeit tasty, is really overpriced. Although I think the worst part was that neither of the two

I have been to just about every Brazilian steakhouse in the country, and Rodizio is by far the best value anywhere. The food is delicious, the ambience cozy, the staff is simply great!!! Highly, highly recommend it.

What a great experience! We loved the decor and the wide selection. We asked for our meat to be prepared a specific way and it was delivered to our table perfectly. You have to try the homemade Desserts...no one makes their own desserts

You pay a fixed price and get as much meat as you can choke down. The food is good, the sides are good but it isn't amazing and it has a more novelty feel. Its a huge restaurant and you will fight with hoards of people for everything.
