The concept is Brazilian — meats grilled over an open flame and carved tableside by gauchos — but it’s easily embraced by Philadelphians, considering our beef - and - beer tradition. Get all you can of the meat plus the well - stocked salad bar for $49.50 ($32.50 at lunch). Try a bottle of rich malbec, and be sure to flag down the gaucho with the picanha, a tender cut of sirloin flavored with garlic.
The quality of the food is as superb as the variety. The meats are delicious, the salad bar is exquisite and has a sensational selection of delights. If you fill up on that though, you can't enjoy the amazing array of flavorful meats which come at you non-stop. Go hungry and enjoy being treated to the lavish experience of fulfillment.

This was really an incredible experience. Yes, you must LOVE meat for it to be worth the cost. It is a parade of protein. However, the service was top-notch. I had a plate handed to me each time I approached the salad bar. My chair was pushed in behind me almost every time I returned to the table. Our glasses were always kept full of whatever beverage we ordered. Each server acted like they were our own personal staff. I was even able to request my favorite cut of meat from a gaucho who immediately went to the kitchen and returned with a skewer full of piping hot bacon wrapped filet mignon! We were celebrating two family birthdays. We made reservations through the website and noted this. On the day of our visit, I received a phone call from the hostess to set up exactly what I wanted for the birthday desserts. they decorated the plates with "Happy Birthday". Granted, some cuts of meat were better than others, but you can choose to eat only the one's you prefer!! !There are 15 to choose from, and they will cook to order! Posted by D: Nov.
