We love all the meats, especially the lamb chops. Best salad bar. And the pineapple completes the meal. Great place to dine.
Best place in Ocala the neat is always cooked to perfection love the service and love that the owner is a land cruiser fan as well that definitely helps, we have been going here for the last five years and never once had a bad experience, we have even brought family here that were from out of town it's a great experience along with the service this is hands down the best all you can eat around.
It was our 45th wedding anniversary & couldn't think of a better place to celebrate with our friends, Jim & Linda. Roger, our waiter, was very friendly & attentive & the servers were respectful & anxious to serve well. Roger surprised us with an ice cream "cake" on a plate that said "Happy Anniversary" It was our second time experiencing the wonderful atmosphere & a dining experience that is unforgettable. We will be returning without a doubt. Floyd & Betty Hopkins(10/17/20)
This is by far the best Brazilian Rodizio I have ever been to. I lived in South Florida and now in Ocala and I have tried many different places and this place is delicious. I am in love with their salad bar over 50 items to choose from. Even if you don't eat meat they have something for you. And the drinks are amazing!
Has been a while since my last visit....was not disappointed. Our server Danny was awesome....salad bar like no other not to mention a meat lovers paradise. My friend's first visit was truly memorable. A very big Thank You
Absolutely delicious! The food is fresh, the staff is attentive, and the flavors are wonderful. Ipanema has become something of a tradition for my daughter and me. She has loved it since she was six... and she's a picky eater. Between the buffet and the meat, there is definitely something for everyone.
One of the best dining experiences I've ever had. Greeted with a smile, had extraordinary service and the perfect atmosphere. Salad bar had several hot and cold delicious dishes you just want to try them all while at the same time they serve you an endless assortment of delectable meat kabobs. Love how they serve and walk along with you at the salad bar as you select the food you want placed on a dish they hand you afterwards (clean and no contact). Be sure to make reservations for this outstanding dining experience. It is well worth it and you won't be disappointed.
We had a great first experience at Ipanema Ocala! We will definitely be going back! Our server Rodger was great!
I came here with my family for my birthday and it was an experience I will never forget. Top notch service, great atmosphere and delicious food and wine. Can't wait to come back

The salad bar is outstanding! Everything is outstanding, the salad bar is definitely a meal within itself. Smoked salmon, the best chicken salad I've ever tasted and much much more of awesome goodness.
The steak is always cooked perfectly. One of my favorite cuts of meat in town. I eat here at least once a month.

Fantastic time , always a great time coming here!
Rodger was very nice and relatable! He was fast with refills, and made sure we had just what we wanted!
This is not one but our families favorite place to eat out at in Ocala we love all the variety of meats and the salad bar is absolutely superb. we have also heard from our fj land cruiser mechanic that the owner is also a land cruiser fan so I mean on top of that it has to be good food lol . If you haven't tried it you are missing out because the food along with the service makes it well worth the price whenever we have a special occasion, or family in from Seattle or out of town this is our first choice always.
This is the best fine dining in Ocala, Florida. The staff is great, and the chef and the cooking staff is phenomenal. This bet driving out of town, great food!!
It was very nice as usually. The food is outstanding so is the atmosphere. Can't wait until we can go back to serve outself at the salad bar. We did miss our waiter Roger. But we did have a good waitress.
Our absolute favorite place to dine! The first time we went was an amniversay. They treated us like royalty! We have been back many times! Staff is fabulous! Food is marvelous!!
I'm María Rivera and this was my first time eating at the restaurant and was incredible. The attention of everyone since when you walk from the front door is amazing. They are very friendly and respectful employees. I want to tell everyone to go and have the same experience that I have.
We had a fantastic dining experience from beginning to end. The pinapple martini was a must try, I had two lol. Rodger our server was the best server we've ever had there and we have been there multiple times!!!
The food was amazing , seasoned perfectly and the salad bar had a nice selection and everything was delicious. The staff was what really made the nights so great they were so professional and polite they truly made it a great experience for myself and my guests.
My favorite place to eat. Everything seasoned to perfection. Friendly staff. Couldnt ask for better atmosphere and food. Cant wait to be there next month for our anniversary
Super sweet and delicious we will be there october 4 th for my husbands 40th birthday. Best place to celebrate a great birthday dinner
Amazing flavors on all the meats, my favorite was the bacon wrapped filet but my husband's favorite was the Parmesan Pork.... but we both agree thar the Pineapple was the bomb!!!
One of my favorite pieces of meat when I go. My husband loves the lamb. We enjoy going for birthdays and anniversary's. They always make it a special dining experience. 10/10 Stars!
Excelente restaurante, excelente atención, decoración, servicio pero la comida insuperable.
All the food was delicious from the Rodizio ... wait staff excellent ... food nice and hot from the swords, flavor unbelievable .... no salt or pepper needed for anything ... great salad bar ... Thanks to Danny our server ... very attentive to our needs ... Thank you again for a wonderful dinner with friends ...
We come here EVERY year for my birthday (and any other excuse i can find - lol). The food is divine, the pineapple alone is worth the drive. Service is always spectacular and we never feel unattended to. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Make your reservation and wear stretchy pants.
The grilled pineapple is by far my favorite dish. I would come here just for it.
We have been coming to Ipanema for every special occasion. We have never had any issues with the service or food. Although the pineapple is everyone's favorite.
Oh ... my ... goodness! What a treat this place is! Nothing compares. Over the years, our family has been to the Ipanema restaurant a few times, and it has always been consistently wonderful! We can't afford to go often. We just go for special occasions, but I sure wish we could go weekly! The ambience & decor inside Ipanema is beautiful. The waiters & waitresses & owners are all so very attentive. The salad bar is incredible with so many delectible choices. But best of all ... (drum roll please) ... is the Rodizio! It is to die for! They offer such an amazing variety of meats & you can tell with each bite that it has all been seasoned & prepared to perfection. And the grilled cinnamon pineapple dessert is the perfect final touch. Try it once ... & I promise you'll be hooked! FYI - Last December, Ipanema offered a great gift card deal. So,I bought a gift card for everyone on my Cmas list. My Cmas shopping was all done in ... 15 minutes! I hope they offer that deal again this year!
Thank you all! We always really enjoy our experience there, food and service is amazing!
This place is AMAZING!! Our waiter Jim was FANTASTIC!!!!!! WE will ask for him the next time we go. Bruce and Gail
