    Brazilian restaurant, very very good. Open buffet for the salads are also fresh and tastefull. Meat is very very delicious, go and try.

    You can eat for days. They tell you not to fill up on the salads but they are very good. Paired red meat with red and yellow peppers for a delicious combo.

    Good place with friendly staff. Dark Brazilian beer Xangu is nice one. For only $50 per person you can eat as much meat as you want making choice of 16 different kinds of meat every 2 min. Awesome :)

    Meat eaters Eutopia! I enjoyed the chicken. Great salad bar, sides and bread!! An experience, fun with a group. I agree with the masses, make sure you are starved before dining.

    I missed their food so bad. The salad bar is great, and their cheesy bread ohhh, literally, something to die for, and of course the meat is really amazing.

    Relatively expensive compared to other steakhouses in DC but the unlimited supply of all kinds of meat makes it worth it 🙈🙏

    This restaurant is for the serious carnivore. My tip: make a reservation during summer or winter Restaurant Week. Dinner is $35.12 per person not including tax and gratuity.

    Like others have said, enjoy the salad bar but save room for meat. Excellent food and top notch service. One of DC's best.

    what in the worlllld is in their cheese bread?! And obviously the meat is out of this world. #1 tip: do not eat the entire day before coming here!

    If you're a meat-eater, you must visit! Our concierge Clay at The Donovan House recommends getting a table downstairs- it's quieter.

    If you are a meat eater, this is the place for you. Go slow and avoid the salad bar unless you are on a diet. Get a nice glass of red wine. Awesome!

    The picanha is fantastic. Try a slightly charred medium piece - you'll be looking for it for the rest of the night.

    If you do eat the salad bar, eat some lettuce cause that expands your stomach and you can eat more meat
