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.

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.

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!

The Food is so amazing. Such a selection and the view, breathtaking as every seat in the house is an amazing view of the ocean especially at sunset. Stay for the dancers and the girls will top the evening off. This is the MOST ROMANTIC place in LA . Dinner View and Entertainment . Doesnt get any better

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.

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.

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!

The Full Samba Experience

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.

The Picanha steak was very flavorful. I took three other people with me to the restaurant and everyone loved all of the food. Wish it was closer to where I live.

My son wanted to go here and I figured it would be a waste for me being a vegetarian. He LOVED everything! I on the other hand couldn't believe all the choices I had. I left STUFFED! We will be going back in the next couple weeks and bringing the rest of the family.
