17 people, from 50 to 109 dollars for each one. They try to serve you any kind of very expensive drinks from cocktails to digestives, and they insist if you say no. It's not the best quality I've ever tasted and the staff is deceptive. Watch out.

The steaks are great the lamb had good flavor but I was missing some mint jelly. The service was outstanding. The only bad part was the salad bar. We found it limited and disappointing.

I violated one pf my rules - no buffets or all you can eat situations. The salad bar is actually very good and has a wide variety. I should have stopped eating then. I'd rather go to a nice place and have sane portions and beautiful food. This just isn't my style. Ribeye was best tasting meat selection. The rest... More

We enjoyed going to this Brazilian steakhouse. The steak was really juicy and the salad bar was big. I wish that the garlic beef would of not been as fatty. Thanks for the good time!

My wife and I went the Estancia with three friends to celebrate one of their birthdays. Wonderful salad bar, all you can eat Brazilian meat cuts, service and atmosphere.

After passing on visiting Estancia several times, my family and I decided to visit over the holidays. We ate at 4pm on a Saturday 12/17. Salad bar was very small and less than average choices, I was told you could eat just off of that...then we were served the meats. They were ok, but for a dinner price tag and... More

We arrived early for our reservation but were seated immediately. Staff were extremely friendly and answered all our questions. We started with the salad bar. Luckily we had eaten at another similar restaurant, so I knew to take very small portions of the salad bar...just enough to sample each and get my veggies in. They immediately came to the table...

Bottomless meat, salad bar, fried plantains, mashed potatoes, cheese bread... yum. The garlic tenderloin and the filet are my favorites. The dinner is more expensive but the service, ambiance and attention make a great package. We love the chiprina drinks and fresh food. Great date or special occasion place.
