The steak is always cooked perfectly. One of my favorite cuts of meat in town. I eat here at least once a month.

Roger was top of his class.
Great price value!!!!!
Fantastic time , always a great time coming here!
Some of the best meats in town tender juicy and seasoned beautifully
While this wine was a little on the high side it is our go-to wine for special occasions. We were not disappointed.
With the crazy pandemic we have not been able to dine out much. I am so looking forward to dinner with our friends on Saturday, 29 August and to seeing Fabian and the staff. It is ALWAYS a wonderful experience.
Every thing was Great as normal .Everyone was working hard to keep everything clean and wiped down ,All were polite and helpful. I love going here to eat. Thanks Rick Bass
Ipanema will give you the full experience of a Brazilian rodizio. With varieties in the salad bar (including delicious Feijoada and Strogonoff) from great salads made fresh. Also, the variety of meats served by the Gauchos will definitely satisfy any palate. The Picanha will always be the most delicious and most tender meat at Ipanema. It is perfectly cooked and seasoned. I cannot wait to go back and have some more!
Everything is absolutely delicious. The meats are tender and juicy and the food bar you could not ask for anything better. The perfect slice of grilled pineapple will melt in your mouth. Make it a must to go eat at Ipanema.
Husband and I came here for his birthday and an anniversary, and..it...was..SO GOOD. I hate driving, but I will drive one hour to Ocala so I can eat at this Brazilian Steak House! The service is excellent. The servers are super attendant and polite, and the owner was going around table to table thanking people for their business, which was really sweet. To prevent cross-transmission for COVID stuff, the servers will accompany you to the salad bar, you tell them what you want, and they will pick it out for the. And the salad bar is phenomenal. Smoked salmon, sliced cheeses, roasted zucchini and eggplant, chimchurri sauce and this amazing roasted garlic oil...all wonderful sides to accompany the stars of the show: THE MEAT. The meat is so moist and flavorful, there is literally not one that i wouldn't eat. I tend to avoid the sausages just because I'm a huge fan of straight up steak, but they are good to. Just writing this review is making me want to go back there. And, we offhandedly mentioned we were celebrating an anniversary and a birthday, and at the end of the meal they brought out TWO separate desserts and they wrote out "happy birthday" and "happy Anniversary" on them, and they were so good! Everything about this restaurant is five stars for me! Can't wait to go back!
Went for birthday dinner for our daughter, wonderful experience. Service was excellent, social distancing was very top of mind, at the salad bar, we were assisted, no guests handled utensils, very mindful. Food was, and always is incredible, and they even brought birthday dessert for our daughter, which was not expected!
The salad bar here is AMAZING! I have to stop myself so I have room for my dinner. I mean they have shrimp cocktail on the salad bar. Doesn't get any better than this!
Amazing food... amazing staff 11/10
Being from Brazil, this is the closest I can get to being home! Delicious food, incredible service, and truly a great experience every time!
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
Picanha is the best and only way to eat steak. We love Ipanema and go there fairly often. We fell in love with Picanha and make it at home sometimes. But nothing beats fresh, juicy, salty, tender top sirloin wrapped in its own sizzling fat cap. Best steak ever!!!! All their other food is good too. Ipanema is the best restaurant in Ocala.
Recently moved back to Ocala from Miami and I have to say that Ipanema can compete with the best. Outstanding salad bar, you can really taste the quality in every bite. Delicious dinner experience and friendly staff. Wish there were more restaurants of this caliber in Ocala.
Ipanema never disappoints! The food and service is always exceptional. The salad bar is the best!
Went out with wife and daughter.. We loved all the amazing meats. Everyone was so polite and accommodating. Food tasted great! Even bought a whole pineapple to take home for the wife.
I've been going to ipanema every other month for 5 years now. It is my favorite restaurant in Ocala and as far as Brazilian steakhouses go still my all time favorite. I've been to 3-4 different Texas de Brazil locations and nothing tops ipanema. You guys are like family to me and every time I'm there is a celebration. See you next Saturday! :)
I found the food to be fantastic, well seasoned and very moist and super tender.The staff are the best!!! The salad bar had so much to chose from I did not know where to start. I left so full, I can not wait to come back!!! All I can say is if you have not try this place you are missing something great!!!!!!
This has got to be the best Filet I have ever had! Would absolutely recommend!
The salad bar is the absolute best. Plenty of choices of high quality foods. One of our favorite restaurants. Will be doing there for our 30th anniversary this week,
Great price I used to go to Orlando to Texas de Brazil not anymore especially living in Gainesville
But everything is good if you have not had the privilege of trying this place you need to special shout out to the waiter Paul he's amazing
Awesome staff, food quality and experience! Wish it was closer to home.
Such an amazing brunch. I love the atmosphere and the great food. The selection is so diverse!
