Customer Testimonials

“This place is the best Brazilian steak house! Love the variety of steaks this place has to offer! The server was very nice and professional, I liked the fact that the manager approached us to make sure we had a good time. I’ll be back here soon!”

“Came back again to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Came hungry and left full. The food selection once again was amazing. From appetizers to dessert… Fresh and delicious. The drinks were on point too! Service was top notch and the food just kept coming and coming… I finally met my match. Having eaten and tons of restaurants in Downtown San Diego, this is by far my favorite. I highly suggest making a reservation as this place does get packed. There’s live music from 6-9pm and dancers! I can’t explain how great the quality of food is here… Seriously!”

“LOVE THIS PLACE. came here to have a surprise birthday party for my boyfriend and I loved it. we went earlier for the lunch prices with a reservation and I chose this place over Fogo de Chao just because it was a bit cheaper. unfortunately, I’m going to have to say that Fogo de Chao is my favorite of the two when price isn’t considered, but they are both absolutely delicious. If anything, it was the sides that made me enjoy Fogo more, so the trade off wasn’t too huge. ”
