SAMBA: BEST MEAT EVER. – I came here with a group of about 20, on a Friday night. It was lots of fun. We waited int he bar for our party to arrive before we seated. The bar has a great atmosphere. Leather couches and modern tables. The Brazilian drinks were great! Fresh fruit and very tasty. DJ playing his music.
Then we sat for dinner. GREAT VIEW! Probably the best in Redondo. Our table was right along the window so maybe that had something to do with it. Dinner was tasty. All you can eat buffet plus men walking around with skewers of meats carved right at your plate. Garlic steak and pepper steak were to die for. They had their signature cut, I can't recall the name, something with a 'P' , was the best meat I've ever had! Melt in your mouth. And these little cheese balls on the buffet, can I take an order to go?
Then, to my surprise, a Samba show! Two girls came out in fun costume and did a dance routine. She grabbed a guy from our group. Ha! Great time. Great service. Will be back.
Samba Redondo is a rip off – I can't beleive that this place has gotten worse since they reopened.
I brought 10 people for dinner. It took almost 15 minutes to bring the first plate. Then another 10 minutes for the second round. 10 hungry people waiting for a tiny slice of meat. Better yet, 6 or more they automatically add 18% which is OK but since the waitress knew that we only saw her at the begininning and then 1 hour later to bring the check.
On top of this they had the nerve to charge almost $28.00 for 7 cokes (plus tax) and $4.50 for a cup of coffee (plus tax of course)
I would think twice before going there!
Samba - Hopefully Closing Soon!!! Needs New Staff Badly – Be conversational: Write as if relaying your experience to a good friend.
Be thorough: Mention your favorite products or services offered by this business, such as menu items, home delivery or spa treatments.
Be local: Identify the neighborhood where the business is located and mention nearby attractions when relevant.WTF Samba! OVER PRICED OVERCOOKED food, servers are nice but BRAIN DEAD!! The Dip Headed Blond MANAGER SHOULD BE FIRED!!! This is no way to run a restaurant in the South Bay.
I live a few blocks from Samba in Redondo Beach and remember when they took over the building. For years I thought the place was closed due to NO one was ever there, no people and never any cars parked in front or near it. To my surprise this summer I found out it was not closed, just not very popular.
My girl and I decided to give them a chance one Saturday so we sucked up the shock of $26 each for brunch and went inside. As everyone states in their review ...nice table, bar set up and views, but the place was absolutely empty. Not another living soul was in the place, that includes the dim witted waitresses ...boy they could use a lesson or two on how to serve customers.
We proceeded to have our meal which consisted of over cooked, under cooked, too salty, too bland inconstantly cooked meats. Partnered with what could be called a buffet bar, but is really just a olive and cheese center with some bad smelling seafood soup and nasty rice. It was not all bad, occasionally some of the meat would be cooked well enough to eat and was tasty, of course we had to cycle through many a skewer to finally get some.
The only real plus was we had the place to ourselves and "unlimited champagne", if you can call anything with a screw top champagne. Seeing the food was not worth the price, we decided to get a few extra glasses of champagne whenever the dim witted waitress would come by. Which was almost never due to her watching the soccer game in the bar and couldn't be bothered, we actually had to get up and ask someone for some water.
The end of the story is where several weeks later Samba started sending coupons to my girlfriends email address. The creepy and most likely illegal thing is she never gave it to the restaurant, how they got it is a mystery to us. Although a simple Google search will come up with it, her business email is part of a public service, so. But what restaurant does a thing like that?! Obviously to drum up badly needed business ...and it worked, we received a "Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price".
So we decided to give them another chance seeing it was cheaper. When we arrived we showed the coupon to the bone headed waitress as the coupon states and she said "No Problem". We commenced filling our plates with "olives and cheese" when all of a sudden, the manager came over to us ...big surprise there was No One Else There, and she said they would not honor the coupon. I READ IT
Eating A lot!!! – I love their Picanha with cheese!!!! My sister and I had way too much fun with their Caipirinhas!!!! I could not believe the ammount of food we were served. It was such a lovely experience.
love this place! – I went there to have dinner on Saturday night and was amazed with the variety of meats they bring you to the table. You have this little wooden thing with red and green to flip to indicate when you want the meats to be served. On the top of that the meats are delicious. My absolute favorite was garlic beef. I ate so much I could hardly move. I almost forgot to add- the view is amazing.
SAMBA ROCKS!! – My experience at Samba was fantastic from start to finish - I was greeted by a bevy of young beauties, and didn't mind waiting at the awesome bar for my table (this place is hoppin!!) The bartender was fun and attentive and made great drinks - these Brazilian cocktails called caipirinhas - soo good. Service was great and the food was fantastic - great price for all you can eat. The best part was the Samba dancers - they were awesome!! I will definitely be back - but next time I'm making a reservation for sure - Samba rocks!
Best Brazilian BBQ in South Bay area!!! – Had a big group dinner there!! The view is beautiful! The drinks were fantastic and the food awesome!! We stuffed ourselves silly!! Great value!! Definitely will be back!! Must go!!!
GO! GO GO GO GO!!!!!! – Beautiful restaurant. Beautiful views. Wonderful service. I have never tasted better meat in my life. The loung area was so classy looking. Samba dancers were so much fun! Overall, great experience!
Meat was raw. Service was slow also. Very, very pricey. Don't go if you have an eye for a good steakhouse.
