Diner Reviews
  • "This has become the restaurant where I take out of town guests to. The experience is always wonderful with exceptional service, a relaxed atmosphere and the food which always leads to over-indulgence. The salad bar has the perfect amount of variety and selection and that combined with the barrage of the different cuts of meat make it hard to beat for the price. I have been to good and bad Brazilian steakhouses and personally have the advantage of visiting Brazil for business regularly, so I know what they should be like. This is my personal favorite in the Metroplex."

  • "If you plan on dining at Rafain, be sure to go in with an empty stomach. The barrage of meats can be daunting to the untrained eye. But it is important to remember that this is a marathon, not a sprint. Don't fill up on salad and bread. You'll need that precious stomach space for all the picana and beef tenderloin. The service is outstanding, ensuring that you will want for nothing while you are there. Just be prepared for the inevitable meat sweats you'll have after dining there. "

  • "It was the first time we've been to a Brazilian grill and the food was amazingly good. The service was a little slow, we had to wait for clean plates and silverware or just get them ourselves. After dinner, we ordered coffee and that took a long time to arrive as well. A 18% tip was added on to our bill and we thought that was a little steep since it was a buffet style. We would be happy to pay more for gratuities if the service was better."

  • "I read a lot of reviews of this restaurant online. Some complained that the meat was overdone and others complained about the service. Some said they had to wait a long time to be seated, even though they had a reservation. My wife likes well-done meat; I like it on the rare side. We named the cuts we wanted and the servers brought each of us exactly what we asked for. The service was excellent. We arrived at the time of our reservation on a busy Sunday night . . . well, all nights seem to be busy . . . and were seated immediately. My wife was raised in Brazil and I spent five years there. This is an authentic Brazilian experience of the highest quality. Enjoy!"

  • "My college age daughter came home for the weekend and really wanted a good steak. Not wanting to go to an over prized and stuffy steak house we came to Rafain. We ate there before and it is good to see that the restaurant is getting better and busier. We enjoyed our stay, were spoiled by the staff and really liked the pineapple!!"

  • "We went to Rafain by way of Groupon. My husband loves the Brazilian steakhouse type of restaurant and of course we couldn't pass up a great deal. The atmosphere was amazing, the waitstaff gave us their upmost attention and the food was delicious. We will definitely be returning... and soon I hope."

  • "This is the best Brazilian style steakhouse in Dallas. Service is exceptional. Great salad bar selections and the included desert bar is wonderful (so save some room!). They offer much more then just red meat with chicken, pork, lamb, etc... There are a number of good wines that can be ordered by the half bottle."

  • "The food was excellent and the service was out of this world. We had an attentive waiter, everyone that comes by with the meat, is polite and willing to get you anything and there was an additional attendant, like a manager that was very attentive. The pineapple was awesome!!! The salad bar has lots of choices, be careful not to fill up ;) The service is worth the price of the meal."

  • "We went to celebrate my hubbys 25th b-day and we loved it. Wait staff was very helpful asking if we had been there before and how all of it works. The food was great, I like my meat med-well and my husband likes med-rare, they were very quick to bring out the meats cooked as we liked them! Our waittress explained there was a groupon out and thats why they were a little busier than normal, but even so service was great. My fav. part had to be dessert, the coconut flan is delicious! My only complain is that I had to ask for the Chimichurri , How are diners supposed to know to try this awesome sauce if its not readily available? Other than that everything was great, the salad bar, the meats, the desserts, and the service, definitely returning!"

  • "I absolutely loved this place. I wanted to take my boyfriend out on a romantic dinner and everything was amazing. The only thing is it was a little expensive 130 for two including a 20$ tip but you get what you pay for. The waiters pulled the seat out and helped me up the stairs with my plate, my drink was never more then half empty, I always got a new plate with everything!"

  • "From the moment we sat down until the moment we left the service was excellent, very professional and courteous. The salad bar was very nice but I can honesty say I was not there for the salad bar but what I did try was very good. The meat was very tasty and spiced just right for us, but the spicy beef was by far for the best selection of the group and when I was totally full I just had to have one more piece. We missed the grilled pineapple it didn't come out right away and by the time I saw it I was too full. The deserts were very good, my wife liked the flan and I liked the chocolate passion fruit cups. This was a great meal and we would not hesitate to go back again. Just don't eat all day before you go as you will need the room!"

  • "Salad bar was excellent. I don't eat red meat (went there with a group of friends), but there was chicken, so I got to enjoy the experience - had two chicken legs. Roasted pineapple was the most memorable thing I ate. Dessert selections were meh. Caipirinha (cocktail) was refreshing. My bill: two chicken legs, salad bar and one drink $70.69 (includes 18% gratuity added for large groups). Would recommend for the experience of a Brazilian steakhouse, but be warned of the sticker price!"

  • "We've been to Rafain many many times as well as other Brazilian steakhouses and Rafain is definitely out favorite. The food is great, salad bar is amazing and of course the steaks are just delicious. Cooked perfectly everytime they are brought out, or if you want it cooked more/less they can do that for you as well. Rafain was actually the place that I proposed to my fiance so we like to come back every now and then to go out. We actually went out for two things this time, her birthday was on that Sunday and also we had a groupon. I feel like once I told the waiter we had a groupon, I felt a little less warmth than usual. Using a groupon doesn't mean we're cheap, but we might as well use it if we find one. It felt a little unwelcoming then."

  • "I consider Rafain's to be one of the top Brazilian steak houses in the area. The meat selection is wonderful compared to other steakhouses and even Texas de Brazil. The salad bar here is pretty good too. They offer a nice selection and dessert is included. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone that loves meat. The offer cuts of beef, chicken, and lamb."

Verify the cost of wine before choosing as we found it confusing if the entire page was not read. The manager quickly corrected the issue after we brought it to his attention."

  • "My girlfriend and I went for a special night out. The service was pretty good. They pulled out our chairs for us and our waiter was very attentive. Although, something about him made us feel really rushed. The salad bar was really great! We were impressed. When we turned over our meat cards, the servers swarmed to our table and they didn't stop until the cards were turned over. Within 3 minutes, I had so much meat on my plate, I didn't even know what to do with it. The lamb was amazing. The beef was good, although they all kind of had the same taste. The chicken was alright. They also gave us the chance to tell them what meat we wanted and they would get it to us within minutes. I was impressed with that. The desserts are great!"
