"The service was very good but the pork, chicken & the flat iron steak was tough, over cooked & bland. The beef ribs were awesome aswell as the sausages & sangoria .
We found the salad bar had alot of items but they seemed old & tasteless . I may try once more but would go on a weekend.

"We previously looked for a Brazilian Churrascaria in Vancouver and couldn't find one. Luckily a Brazilian friend recommended Riu to me and it was good indeed. I would highly recommend that they include the word "Churrascaria" in their name or in their website, so that it can be easier to find.
The food was excellent and, although they said there are only 5 types of meat at lunch (and 12 at dinner), I think there were more than 5. All were delicious.
Also important to point out that the price was very reasonable."

"The different meats were very much over-cooked. Thus, they were dry and coarse. The pork-beef sausage was good, the cheese bread and the banana appetizer were tasty too. The quality of meat definitely needs to improve before I will come again."

"The service was terrible, our waitress was just interested in chat in portuguese with another tables, isn't interested in service.
If we want meat, we need to wait 5 minutes or more every time that we want a piece of any meat.
The waitresses didn't know how cut the meat correctly.
Lastly the pineapple with cinnamon was made upper the meat and the cinnamon melted and fell on the meat, and some meats were with taste of cinnamon.
I am very disappointed with this restaurant.

"The best restaurant I have been to in a long time. The staff were friendly and so paitent with our group. The food and meats were so deliscious and juicy.
I would defiantly recommend this to friends as the food you get is worth the money. The price is exactly worth it.
Maybe the only improvement needed is they should offer wine tasting before bringing a bottle. The wine wasn't too good

"The food was truly terrible. The cuts of meat were cheap and the salad nasty. We couldn't eat the appetizers. This was a very sad birthday dinner for my partner, and very expensive given the poor ambiance and mostly inedible food. I likely won't risk a reservation through Open Table again and certainly will let our friends know that this restaurant is not a place to go."

"We made a reservation for 2 at 5:30.
Seated right away but they didn't really start bringing out the meats until past 6pm.
Very little selection, they kept on bringing over the same meat and very slow, almost 10 minutes at a time for a slice of meat. They didn't have more selection until 7:15-7:30, by that time we've already spent 2 hours there and didn't even get to sample the ribs.
If they take reservations at 5:30 they should start offering all selections at that time and not at 7:30 when it gets busy. It should be cheaper if they serve less selection until 7:30.
My ice water was filled up twice in 2 hours, and BOTH times I asked for it to be refilled."

"I went there for a goodbye dinner with a group of 6, and although i know during the weekend they have a larger selection, i didnt think it would be THAT much worse. The salad bar was ridiculous with only a choice of 7 items. They didnt even have a basic mixed green salad (and for those wanting a healthy alternative - there was no olive oil, a staple in brazilian salads btw! we dont typically use those dressings like ranch. Although we had our labels turned to green from the start, the waiters would come to all the tables around us and the food would finish by the time they got to ours. You would think that they would restart at ours once the new food was ready, but they started at the exact same tables, so we always got the last bits of the meat, if we got any at all! I have been here many times (all weekends), but i was so disappointed this time around, im not sure i will be returning any time soon."

"First time at a Brazilian place with the meat table delivery format. The selection of meets was good, some were on the dry side. We didn't indulge at the salad bar but were filled pleasantly with four/five different meat choices. Dancers were an interesting diversion as was watching some rather crude co-patron males watching the dancers. The sangria was just wine and soda with apple bits (don't order)"

"The variety of food they have is amazing. The only problem was the service. They start serving you with different kinds of BBQed meat for about 45 minute and then they suddenly ignore you and skip you. You are sitting there and watching all these servers come and skip you and go to other tables and serve them. Its a way of telling you to pack up and go. It is a all you can eat restaurant but they have ways of pushing you out the door if you are still hungry. I talked to the manager and complained and thats when the servers served our table again, I waited for 20 minutes and every single server serving bbq meat passed me and went and served the table behind me. I have been to other Brazilian bbq buffets but none of the have done what these guys did. It was obvious and ridiculous."
