Great Service and excellent food!! – The service was excellent. My mother and I went for a light dinner but were indecisive about what we wanted. The waiter was so patient and helped us out with our final decision. The waiter was very attentive and friendly. Afterwards, the owner came out to talk to us. He was so friendly. This restaurant has a great family atmosphere. They made you feel welcome and important. I would strongly recommend going there for dinner. The food was excellent. The barbecue was awesome!
The best Churrascaria in the State!!! – The meat are great... I can even stand up after I eat there. One of the only places where I can say that you really eat ti'll you drop. Customer service is great my table was alway visited by the meat server or the server...I recommened
STAY AWAY PLEASE!!! – My experience at the Samba grill was my first and LAST. The service was HORRIBLE. It was late June and about 100F degrees. The AC was poor and the waiter wouldn't ever bring me my drink. I had to ask him twice. The meat was Raw and salad bar selection poor. In the end it ended up costing my husband and I 49.00 for two meat meals and drinks. We left a 9.00 tip ( I don't know why) and a week later our bank statement read $68.000 to Samba Grill. They stole $10 from us without our consent. So we paid $70 for the WORST eating experience I have ever had. STAY AWAY!!
Salty dry meat, poor salad bar, poor, slow service – Wasted our lunch hour on a Wednesday afternoon at the grill. No mood music - rather a Yankees game on TV that only the employees were interested in. There were three other couples. All four couples kept our 'meat signs' green, and were lucky to be offered meat every 15 minutes. We were only offered a selection of 5 different meats - all turned out to be very salty, and dry. The salad bar didn't offer much, and what was there was far from fresh. The host was the only good thing going for this place. Definately won't through more money away to see if this place is any better on a weekend.
overly salty, overly bad service, overly NOT RECOMMENDED
Food was not that good, service was horrible (even though the restaurant was somewhat slow--I sat with no drink for over half of my meal-this was not good considering how much salt they use on the meats)--I would go to Rodizio (better salad bar, better meats, and better service) for the same experience and the same money. When you spend $50-$60 for two people on a meal you want it to be a good one, and this was far below my expectations! I'm not sure how they are still in business, everyone I have talked to has the same opinion of the experience they had...
Good food – my wife and i enjoy the food, service, and the atmosphere. take time and visit with your server, and you will have a wonderful experience.
Horrible – Never told how the buffet works. Waiter had poor english skills. WAY OVER PRICED!! Nothing was labeled at the buffet... mystery meat?
Can you say OVERPRICED?!?!?! – For our first time, our waiter "explained" how everything worked, but his English was very bad and we couldn't understand him. I asked him some questions and still no clear explainations. You don't get a menu so you don't know prices etc. He acted like the meat and salad bar came together for one price. There weren't any vegetables to put on the green salad. I can't eat seafood, and because none of their hot or cold dishes were marked, I got pasta salad with tuna in it and rice with shrimp. We were charged $17.99 a person for the meat, which we each only ate about 4 pieces. The salad bar was an extra $6.99, soda was $2.29 a glass. RIP OFF! Ask for a menu if you go!
Great Food, Great Service, Great Price – We had a superb meal at a great price. The service was also super. Make sure you come with an appetite.
Meh, at best. – Waited over 10 minutes for a hostess to even aknowledge our presence. Way over-priced!! Way way overpriced! Like $5.00 lemonade! The "salad bar" was shabby and really pretty sad looking. Very salty meat, too salty. Just an overall weird experience. Really, trust me, don't eat here.
