Best Brazilian Steakhouse & Lounge Ever

Me and my wife had a party of 300 and when we called to reserve the 3rd floor and mezz a young girl answerd the phone very politely. When we got to SAMBA the day of our party the owner was at the door and greeted us our family and friends loved all the meats and dancers. There was a DJ upstairs and a wonderful outdoor patio. Service at Samba was woderful a few days after our party Samba called us and asked us if we e... view more

Bad food all around

Meat is very low quality, 75-80% was tough not because it was over cooked. Every piece had gristle going though it. The cook said the best cut of meat he had was top round. Wow and to charge you $38 +18% tip + 10% tax and watered down drinks for $12. What a rip off. DO NOT go and get ripped off. The dancers don't even dance to the music correctly. They just shake their booty. An insult to Brazilian's. What ... view more

Thrown out of Restaurant for $350.00

Our family went there on New Years Eve, and upon arrival were told that the dinner that evening would be $60.00 a person (no mention of this when reservation was made) The menu was exactly the same as it is everyday for this price too. The waitress was aloof, service was poor, meat was tasteless and salad bar was sub-standard. After dinner, as we were having coffee with dessert, the waitress approached us and advise... view more

Salty food, rice & beans for $75!

So we went there on a Sunday expecting to eat delicious meat. yes, the come around often to offer meat but it seems that every single one was sooo salty. The sides are self serve, but there's only a choice between rice, beans, and some burned potatoes. Cold salads were ok. After not really enjoying the meal, our bill came $75 for 2 people!!! Would never go there again.

Is not Brazilian food

I'm Brazilian I know Brazilian food, that's the worse restaurant I've ever been, the food is awful the service is ok, but I was there for the food because I miss it a lot, I HATED IT wast of money and time. If you at Universal city walk go to Bucca de Beppo. DON'T WAST YOUR MONEY ON SAMBA THE ONLY BRAZILIAN THING IS THE NAME.

Love the meats, love the dancers!

I went there on Friday night and felt in love with this place. The decor is very festive yet modern, the food is delicious and the idea of all you can eat meats speaks for itself. All you do is grab whatever you wanted from the buffet and they will bring you tons of meat to try. I loved the fact that we could seat back and enjoy the meal rather than trying to figure out what to eat and compose our own dinner. I also... view more

Delicious Brazilian BBQ

Love the fresh grilled meat concept, especially served tableside immediately. It keeps coming unitl you're ready to explode! So good that stopping is difficult. Has a great salad bar too, lots of delicious and great sides. Not your typical wilted lettuce, bacon bits and chopped eggs!!! Lots of exotic grilled veggies, cheeses, mixed salads and even smoked salmon. Trying one of their unique Caiprinhas is a must, ... view more

I heart meat!

I had a wonderful time at Samba last week with my boyfriend. We really enjoyed the show. The meat was off the hook. Everyone was really really cool.
