Everything is delicious .
I love how they bring all the grill meats to the table along with a nice wine, makes this a special evening. My kids loved the one at Universal city walk, the brunch had all their favorites. Its one of our favorite restaurants. Highly recommended.
It was amazing. Flew in from Houston and this was the first stop i made!
The food is fresh and tasty. The ambience is very cool I highly recommend it
Very good meat and a great view that the other Brazilian steakhouses can't match
My husband and I have been here numerous times and every time has been amazing. The staff is wonderful, the food so delicious. They even make a celebration great, we have been her for our anniversary and my birthday also. The very best part is the view, its absolutely beautiful!
Very good the food, omg, sou brasileiro e gostei muito do restaurante muito boa a comida, e o lugar é sensacional. Aprovado ✅
Leg of Lamb
Best peice of meat ever
This is the best cut in my opinion always soft and juicy and in combination with the salad bar and a little chimichurri is heaven on earth. Don't forget the endless mimosas or sangria on Sunday brunch.

The meat and the chicken were very tender and juicy. It would melt in your mouth once you took a bite into it. It's the best meat I've had in years alongside with the beans and the rice which were both cooked to perfection.
Just awesome experience !!!!
This place is just amazing and everyone should experience this restaurants at some point! The food is next level and the ambiance is amazing! The lamb is the best! The rice soooo good! Def try the samba experience. You get everything. So good!
This restaurant is amazing, i been coming here for the last 5 years and every time is great, i have never had a companion about the food or the service, everything is always on point, every time i get a chance or a out of town friend i can't wait to show this restaurant and years after i get good feedback on there visit, great place to bring family, friends and special occasions events and looking forward to host one soon.
Savory, mouth watering selection of cuts of various meats (see menu) of beef, chicken, pork, sausages, etc. The staff is attentive, friendly and sometimes intuitive. They instinctively anticipate your needs once they get to know your tastes. This is a place to have fun or relax depending on when you visit. Enjoy the food and the atmosphere! Happy hour is during the week from 3-7pm!
Great food and service
My daughter who is a senior at Eastman university and has seafood allergies hating it being cooked. Well Insisted on tasting the prawns didnt have a reaction. I was shocked when says they so damn go they cured her allergies and had more . Wow!
Had a date night here with my family, we were super excited to check it out since we lived in Brazil for more than 20 years and we were looking for a touch of home. As soon as we walk in the hostess was nice and accommodating and sat us down right away. Francisco was our waiter, super nice, always with a smile on his face and very accommodating, he was very attentive throughout the night in regards to our needs . The capirinha drink was a little touch of home and brought many memories back, there bartender made it just like in Brazil. The gauchos kept going around with the delicious meats and asked politely and patiently how we liked it cooked and what cuts we liked, Jonathan was one of them he kept making sure that everyone kept getting the cuts of meats we liked, tri- tip and Picanha were our favorite, our plates were always full. The atmosphere was very enjoyable, the food delicious and we had great customer service from everyone. Thank you Samba for bringing a taste of Brazil to our town.

This place is great I've been here a few times and it always leaves us beyond satisfied! Service at this location is always beyond desired expectation!'
Delicious! Love taking my family here! The atmosphere and food is amazing! Best servers!
Absolutely amazing flavour. So tender and seasoned to perfection.
By the sea, watching the sunset eating the exquisite tenderloin that melts in your mouth! Thank you Samba for the experience!
Very nice place, the food is delicious, the service was great , I recommend this restaurant for everyone and for the family.
everything was perfect ,different but perfect.
The best meat..... the best service......the drinks are good as well
We arrived shortly after opening, and the service was mind blowing (benefit of being early). My server greeted us a big warm smile, and the food was fit for royalty, it was like the editable version of can you top this. Be hungry and come early
The Full Samba Experience
I absolutely love coming here. You will not find a better high quality selection of meats than Samba. Every side tastes amazing as well and I love that every time I go, they seem to have something new. I'll sometimes watch other guests and see what sides they combine to create new side dishes. Like something as simple as pouring the stews over rice. My absolute favorite meat is the lemon pepper steak. TO DIE FOR! It's amazing and I can't get enough of it. It's a great place to celebrate special occasions, date night or you just really need something great to eat. Treat yourself! They never fail to satisfy.
Excellent choice of meats and selection on the salad bar. I love the option of interchangeable mimosas, champagne and sangria Excellent service great ambiance ample parking and the validation for 2 bucks unbeatable plenty of time to walk around the pier and have a good time. Obrigado
The food is always perfect and the view of the ocean is amazing from spot in the restaurant. I've been there for Taco Tuesday, Brunch and just for drinks. They also have amazing customer service and it has been my favorite restaurant since 2009.
Super delicious fresh seasoned to perfection ....just a great dish and very fulfilling...love it love it!....Can't wait to taste it again when you guys reopen!!! ......dreaming about this! Thank you from Torrance
Excellent food. Great service with very accommodating servers. Salad bar isn't as good as the lineup of meats but is still a worthwhile distraction during your meat induced coma.

This place was really good I can say I will definitely go back again soon food was amazing and host were friendly.
I love this restaurant because it is the maximum meat very soft and delicious and very juicy. That's why I love to go and I always ask for this dish
Love environment my first time was when I was 15 years ago and I still remember it has if it was yesterday Food quality is always outstanding, very efficient and fast service my favorite restaurant to enjoy a lovely dinner with my wife. Thank you so much
The food was great and the service was excellent. The servers kept coming around for as long as you wanted. Really good experience.
Sooooo Good!! Just like my mom makes at home! Maybe better! Shhhh...don't tell her!
Had a great time good food such a good me time
Unfortunately, I could only make 1 menu selection. My son and I LOVE every food item on the menu. From the salad bar to the service, we are ALWAYS thoroughly please with all the services and attention we get. Even when allowed to sing for our supper or brunch. Thank you for EVERYTHING.
OMG that Picanha! Carved table-side by our Hot Gaucho Cowboy. My slice was charred just enough for a tasty crunchy outside layer, and inside, a thick juicy tender succulent piece of meat! Flavored just enough to not distract from the taste of the premium cut! My absolute favorite!
