I came here with a group of about 20, on a Friday night. It was lots of fun. We waited int he bar for our party to arrive before we seated. The bar has a great atmosphere. Leather couches and modern tables. The Brazilian drinks were great!

I had a great time at Samba. It was my first visit to this churrascarria in Redondo Beach and I was simply overwhelmed. The variety of fresh cooked meats and all you can eat salad bar are very tasty. Service was attentive and polite, meats servers were very knowledgeable of what they were serving. Not to mention the wonderful view of the ocean and beautiful samba dancers. I will definitely be back!

We went here on a business vacation to Long Beach and decided to try this steakhouse since we had never been to a Brazilian steakhouse before. The girls come out and start dancing for you and the meats just don't stop coming. You can request well done and they'll come back immediately for you. It left a lasting impression for me and my wife and we still talk about it all the time. Can't wait to come back and see them.

I was there Saturday June 28th 2008 with my Sweetie for the first time and I enjoyed everything. The food was tasty with lots of flavor, the service was wonderful and very pleasant and the view was so relaxing. I will visit again maybe in the fall, so continue to do what you do... Many thanks from your Nations Capitol.

I had decided to take my mother to Samba for Mother's day. Big mistake. We have tried several brazilian steakhouses prior, and this was by far the worst! First off, you can't serve brazilian meats without offering yucca flour, rice, and beans in your brunch buffet! Eating meat by itself is not that exciting! I have to say I haven't tried their dinner, but I am not willing to go back to try it!

Scrambled eggs, bacon, french toast sticks and Brazilian style BBQ! I was so disappointed with this restaurant's concept of what a Brazilian steakhouse is. I am from South Brazil and it was the first time in my life that I left a Churrascaria hungry. Service was sloppish, my boyfriend and I were sitting at the edge of the table and by the end we had meat juice splashed all over our clothes. I am not sure what kind of market is their target, but one thing I am sure - it's not the Brazilian one.

I just wanted to share with everybody what a wonderful experience I had. My friends and I went to check out the newly reopened Samba out of curiosity and of course for all you can eat meats. It was very delicious. They kept bringing us meats and cut it table side. We especially enjoyed the Brazilian beef and turkey with bacon. The salad bar is very nice too especially that it has hot food and shrimp. We saw the show- the girls were beautiful but what made it truly unique experience was the life drummers along with them. They danced approximately 10 minutes traveling around the tables for everyone to see. We ate so much that we could not move. After dinner we went to the bar to have more of the Brazilian drinks with limes. We were surprised to find out that they have late happy hour and we could order drinks for half price past 10pm. We had a really good time and will definitely go back!

I have never written a review before, and am sad to write this one, because Samba has such great potential. I went because I thought my date would enjoy the dance show, which we both did, but even that was mediocre at best. Instead of being completely negative, I will instead offer advice to management at Samba, because I truly would like to see it do better:
1) The buffet that accompanies the "feast" channels bad Vegas. More selection and better quality needed for $30/person;

2) Beef up the dance show. We were there long enough to see all three shows (7:30, 8:30, 9:30), and they were all exactly the same- and not very long. Same dancers, same routine, same everything. Wait- I think that the dancers may have traded costumes. I stand corrected. However, the show had minimal interaction with the audience, and could just generally be more engaging. But the girls were adorable and did a good job for what was required of them! The show is technically 10 minutes, but the dancers travel throughout the dining room, so you can't see them the entire time.

3) You need major ambiance re-haul. When the show wasn't going on, there was no music, no spirit, nothing to indicate the "authentic" Brazilian atmosphere that the website boasts. At the very least, add some flatscreens to the main dining room and play soccer or Brazilian soap operas or something. The vibe was very dry- the place where I get my eyebrows done has more ambiance.

4) Something that can create ambiance: decor. Didn't they just remodel?! The restaurant was clean, and the furniture was new, I'll give them that. But there was nothing to distinguish Samba from the nearest pancake house, really. You have an amazing theme- decorate accordingly! The building structure is so unfortunate in and of itself- 1980's contemporary- you MUST counteract that with some Amazonian influence, please!

Service and food were just okay. If that's going to be the case, give me an experience!

We went by Samba because we were considering it for our wedding rehearsal dinner. I'm glad it was a second choice, because our experience was sub-par. We ordered off the appetizer menu to get a variety -- they do not offer salads in the evening, so we were disappointed in that. Two of our appetizers came promptly and were adequate -- the onion ring tower, especially, was delicious if small. We had also asked for two orders of fish tacos. These took over an hour to arrive, despite our waitress assuring us multiple times that they were almost ready, and when they arrived, the fish was lukewarm and the salsa ice-cold and so watery that the tortillas dissolved, which made the tacos difficult to eat. The tacos arrived two minutes before the time we had decided we would give up and leave and we were so hungry by the time they did arrive that we ate them without asking for a warmer version. They would have been very tasty had they been hot. We won't return to Samba unless it is for the Sunday brunch, which my fiance has had several times and enjoyed.

You have to try this place! I went on a Friday night with my boyfriend and the food was incredible. There were about 15 meats to choose from and did i mention all you can eat crab legs. Everything was just so fresh and yummy. They have a show on Friday and Sat nights that was a lot of fun and got everyone involved. The bar was very cool also lots of couches and a great vibe get there early for a drink.

Just ate at the newly remodeled Samba Restaurant. The food was Excellent and the service Fantastic! Definately try the Tempura Lobster and the Calamari for an appetizer. The meat (especially the Brazilian Steak and Tri-tip) were some of the best I've had. The salad bar was awesome and very fresh. Location wise you can't beat being right on the ocean. We didn't make it into the bar but it looks to be quite a destination with it's leather couches and ocean views. Highly Recommended.

I have been to several churrascarias across the country and overseas on business. Although the meat is okay the side dishes served buffet style scream budget hotel presentation and taste. I also thought the overall ambience of the place felt cheesy and not inviting at all. Service was very good and friendly but the food definitely fell short.

Went there on a weekday for lunch. Had the buffet - what a surprise! Most meats are better than others, but overall, the variety is good. Make sure you take small portions so you can try all the BBQ meats. Could use a little more cooked vegi dish though. For the price - I would take this over any Chinese all-you-can-eat buffet anytime (and I'm Asian!) Probably okay to bring kids at a weekday lunchtime - but don't seem to have a "kids' pricing" or I didn't see them.

Yeah, the ambience is great for young people and the location is nice because it's by the water, but it seemed all a front. Brazilian dancers, brazilian servers, but the food.....TERRIBLE. The meats were dry, the dishes not authentic whatsoever. I've been to BRazil many many times and this trip to Samba was quite a disappointment.

We visited Samba Brazilian Steakhouse & Bar on a Saturday evening, and a few weeks later, on a Monday night. First, the view is quite excellent, and the staff are all very friendly. Of the two evenings, the best time to go is later in the week when they do samba lessons and literally bring in dancing girls in festive Brazalian outfits who dance throughout the restaurant as you eat. This creates a great dinner party, even with two, and festive atmosphere, where even the most depressed person HAS to smile.

The food is superb. Make sure you get small portions to enjoy the different cuts. Everything was cooked to perfection. There's an excellent salad bar loaded with unshelled shrimp, fruit, and various salads.

Samba Brazilian is truly easy access. Anyone in a wheelchair can move freely, and that includes the restrooms, too.

Having been to some of the other churrascarias around town, I was pleased with Samba's. The selection of meats and variety in the side bar dishes was very good. The meats were very good, but some were often too undercooked (at least for my taste). Location and parking are great. Service was very good and numerous Brazilian staff members added to the authenticity and ambiance.
