Ipanema Restaurant

Food could have been better! Serves could communicate more! Other servers were more attentive to my table! The look of the food was nice. But when a kid thinks hes getting a salad but gets ham and corn separate and looking fancy it get them confuse.

Henry was nice at the buffet! Shreed the Sous chef was really nice! Edgar entertain the children even though he was not our server thought that was awesome! Due to the fact our own server didn't interact with us at the Impanema.

Room fit my two sons and I. Every clean bathroom was too small! Over great size all three fit on the bed didn't use the top bunk!
