I still have the groupon as we went to use it and they have move to a new location in the river stone area and they were not open at either location, so sure hope to use it before it expires in October. Would really like to try it sure hope I can use my groupon at the new location....

We loved Ipanema's! The food was delicious, and the meat was coming so fast, I couldn't keep up! We will definitely be going back.

Great food, staff was excellent, will be back for sure. They were moving to a new location a few days after our visit, which I am told is bigger and has better parking.

Great service, tasty food; what more can I say? Oh, I know, it was so good that my kids and I ate there the next night for full price. Next time we are in Idaho

A very different experience for me. It was quite nice. The buffet was loaded with salads, salad fixings and hot tasty dishes. Drinks were refilled quickly. Skewers of tendered flavored meat varieties were in constant rotation as servers brought them around the room and offered them to guests. If you passed on an offered meat, they asked if there was else you preferred and gladly brought your choice. Very nice!

My husband had the full meal and I just got the salad bar, which was plenty. It's all you can eat, so go hungry.

I have been there on a Saturday and on a Tuesday. It was so crowded on the week end it was hard to get served frequently enough. Tuesday was great. The food came quickly, it was more varied. Fantastic salad bar ALL the time.

The new location is really big. It lost some of the flair. The salad bar has glass panels in eye height. I hit my head on it and so did a customer who was next to me. We where there on a Thursday night and in 2.5 hours we got plenty of chicken and sausage but only one time a waiter came around with beef. Pretty poor! The old location was much, much nicer!

From Our Editors

Grille from Ipanema, which takes its name from a beach along Rio de Janeiro's picturesque coastline, also draws inspiration from the Brazilian churrasco experience. This type of dining stems from the gaucho tradition of gathering around a fire pit and roasting skewers of meat over the flames.

The eatery’s chefs re-create this experience by searing skewers of more than 18 different meats—including top sirloin, pork shoulder, and bacon-wrapped chicken—over a mesquite-filled grill. They then hand the large meat skewers off to servers, who drift throughout the dining room looking for green tokens, which signal that the diner requires more meat. After they’re called tableside, the servers carve the meat into individually sized portions with their industrial-strength laser pointers. By flipping their coasters from green to yellow, guests tell servers to temporarily stop the never-ending meat deliveries, buying themselves time to visit the salad bar and load plates with hot and cold side dishes.

Natural light floods in through the walls of windows, illuminating the dining room's blond-wood finishes and draped fabrics. The Pacific Northwest Inlander praised the restaurant's scenic vantage point in 2011, saying, "you won’t get a view of the Rio de Janeiro beachfront but you will get an eyeful of still-impressive Lake Coeur d’Alene."
