This was our first time eating here. It was our anniversary. They were very good at explaining how everything worked and they took the time to make sure we were getting what we wanted. Definitely would go back! Very neat experience.

We came here for our anniversary-the staff was amazing as was the food. While you don’t get quite the selection of fogo de chao or Chima, it’s still a gray selection of tender, juicy meats. The side bar was well stocked and fresh. The table sides were delicious as well. Sometimes Brazilian meats can be a bit salty, but Santa Lucia has he seasoning down - perfection! Wine and beer prices were reasonable as well. We will definitely be back...

If you have ever eaten at a Brazilian steak house, you know it is an experience and Santa Lucia Brazilian meets that experience. The hot and cold tables provide a variety of side options and the various steak, chicken, lamb, pork, and sausage that is continuously brought to your table hot and delicious by the knowledgeable gauchos is just outstanding. And don't forget to try the pineapple!!! YUM!! Like the food, the service is impeccable. The wait staff are very attentive, even when it is busy, always meeting your needs. This is easily one of our favorite places to eat. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

Excellent find as we use to have to travel towards downtown for this kind of dining. It's small but has great atmosphere and gives up little to the more well known Brazilian restaurants. Service was outstanding. New favorite!!! You will spend a fair bit but this is true of all AYCE Brazilian restaurants.

Not impressed by salad bar. A few of the steaks we tried were very salty.
Good service.
I would be okay paying lunch prices. Dinner prices are high for what you get. I'd rather spend a little more and drive to buckhead to Fogo, Fire or Chama Gaucha for better meal.

The hot and cold bar were good, the service and atmosphere excellent. But we didn't find out until we had been unable to cut and/or chew most of the beef we were served that they only serve sirloin which is frequently tough. For $40 a plate, we expected better. Miraculously, when we complained a skewer of filet mignon briefly appeared but we never saw it again. Will go back to driving into the city to FogodeChao.

Awesome wait staff. Made reservations 2 hours in advance. Did not have to wait to be seated. The restaurant was very clean, All employees were very pleasant and explained everything to us as it was our first visit. The hot food was hot and the cold food was cold like it should be. Maria was our waitress and she was great. Spoke to the evening supervisor and gave him a great review. Highly recommend this restaurant to others and will return in the near future.

Sat at bar for a few minutes before reservation. Bartender was great! Drink recommended was delicious. Pineapple Capprahna? Seated and immediately waited upon. Salad bar was amazing w tons of variety. The guys never let you run out of meat...even if the card was NO side up. Fave meat was the "house" beef. Don't fill up on the cheese bread!

Great food. Waitress was quite preoccupied with a large table. Again, food was excellent— it’s not the type of restaurant that requires the waiters to give the table an abundance of attention, but when you get to the end of the dinner and can’t leave...because of the check, it becomes an annoyance.

Went there for a celebration with my wife.

It was not very crowded at all so we thought we would get great service. The service was mediocre at best.

We had to ask for more meats, the cold and hot bars were not well stocked and the side dishes were warm at best.

Asked for a type of beef and was told they would need to prepare some fresh, at an all you can eat Brazilian steakhouse they should always have some of all types being prepared.

Most of the meats were either over or under cooked and most were overly salty.

While cheaper than the other alternatives in this type of steakhouse , it is true you get what you pay for and unfortunately for the price (Over $100.00 for 2 of us with just dinner and soft drinks) we did not get what we paid for.

Friendly attentive staff. Meats were very salty. My wife and I had a glass of wine each and buffet. Total bill was close to $100 without tip. I have been to a few Brazilian steakhouses where servers come around with grilled meats but when it’s busy you end up waiting for more meat. I will stick to traditional steak houses going forward.

The hostess and server were the highlight of the meal. There were 13 proteins that were to be available but only 2 to 3 servers so you really in a ideal meal time not be able to see all the protein. I only saw 5 of them. Some seasoned good and some over seasoned. The salad bar was good. If you are use to the other Brazilian restaurants you might be a little surprised that it is a low key and slower than the others.

It is worth the experience to eat at this restaurant but costly. I put costly for two reasons, one is that salad bar is lacking although the beets, mushrooms, and beef straganoff. They were all delicious. The meat delivered to the table was way too salty for me. If you try the ribs go for beef instead of pork because the pork was fatty. It was a good experience. The service was outstanding.

One of my new favorites! It is absolutely delicious, great service, and closer than having to drive down to Fogo de Chao ou Chamas Gaucha. My only concern is that it becomes too popular where reservations will be needed. Hope to protect this new gem for the masses - but I know that is not fair to do :-) Thursday night live music is great as well!

Our over all service was Great! The food was fantastic, the staff was great and the food wae perfect! The only set back was our seating. Given we had plenty of space we were kinda tucked in on other side of bar. I feel it was hard for the staff to see us. Once they did see us, they were amazing. I think my favorite part besides the huge selction of meats was the pineapple. It was the best thing I have ever eaten. Plus the gentle man that served it to us was such a geniune man and conversated the entire time with my husband and myself. Someone was checking on us the entire night which is something that doesnt happen often when we go out. The manager even brought us drinks. Thanks for the wonderful service and making my anniversary dinner a special one!$
