    It's pricey, but we loved the decor and lighting and the food was tremendous! I got so full trying everything on the salad bar (which has much more than mere salad) that I barely had room for the various tantalizing grill selections. As it was, I ate a bite or two of each. Best for me was the pork tenderloin and the barbeque pork rib; for my husband it was the parmesan coated chicken. For dessert, we split the cool, creamy, perfect key lime pie. The service was phenomenal - super helpful and polite staff. My only complaint is the noise level, but I have that issue with most restaurants so it wasn't unusually loud. We'll definitely be back.

    Food was good. Service very good. Pork ribs...too dry and tough to eat. Some meat overcooked... our table ordered rare to medium rare...was served medium and even well done on one beef item. Fun place to go. Would not eat there regularly...too expensive. More of a...once you've eaten there...why go back...kind of place. Salad/vegetable bar very good...wonderful selection of specialty items. Lamb chops very good. We all enjoyed the desserts.

    My wife and I enjoyed our 27th anniversary dinner with you. Excellent service, great atmosphere, great food. I have one suggestion. My wife prefers having meat prepared well done. I would recommend that you consider having some cuts prepared well done to prevent such a long delay in service to this group of patrons. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Wonderful restaurant overall but food was better the first time. Someone got carried away with the sodium this time around. My first time friend loved it regardless.

    I have made reservations here twice and have been seated more than 30 min after my reservation time on both occasions. The salad bar is amazing and the table service is great but the hostess is not attentive and you are made to wait even with a reservation. Don't offer the reservation on OpenTable if you aren't going to honor it.

    My husband and I went for our 12th anniversary. We were impressed with the variety, especially trying food we haven't experienced before. The salad area had lots of choices, including sushi and a side area with the soup of the day (the lobster bisque was very good). It was just a lot of food and everything was a bit salty, even the mashed potatoes. The fried bananas were very good and we wanted more. I was expecting a large bill, but I'm not sure I felt we god our money's worth.

    This is what the Brazilian resturant experience is supposed to be like. We had a great time dining with our friends. The atmosphere is romantic and relaxing. Our server was great. He was knowledgeable about the menue and worked very hard to make sure we were taken care of and our experience was great. Go hungy and prepared to eat till you cant not hold any more, and enjoy thegreat food, wine, and beers. We will definately be going back on a regular bases.

    My husband and I dined this weekend with another couple. It was a special occasion (celebration of an engagement). The variety and quality of the meats was outstanding, the salad bar (a meal in itself) was varied and fresh, and the wine we chose was a great compliment to the meal. Unbelievably, we actually did have dessert (the Brazilian cheesecake and carrot cake) and it was as delicious as the rest of the meal. Pros: outstanding service, all you can eat everything, vibrant atmosphere. Cons: a bit crowded and loud. I can't wait until we have another special occasion to go back, so we might have to just have the salad bar next time (and water instead of two bottles of wine) or some of the limited offerings at the bar.

    Lots of fun...great service! Come hungry so you feel as though you get the value of food for the cost. Will not allow you to use any coupons on Friday or Saturday which is a bummer and limits the evenings to take advantage of the savings. Service was good...the salad bar is by far the BEST...many options to choose from. Birthday cakes are allowed but you are charged $3 per person to slice the cake in the restaurant.

    This was my second time and in both opportunities the service was really really bad. The first time we spent 45 minutes waiting for a table although there were 7 or 8 tables empty; we called the manager that Saturday night and he was rude with not commitment for customer service. The second time was bad as well; my wife wanted only filet and took more than 35 minutes for someone to fulfill her request although we talked with the server and the manager (same as the first time) many times.

    I love the novelty of how the meats are presented at the table and the casualness of the salad & food bar. We had 3 adults 2 kids over 5 and we spent 250.00 without the wine so this is definitely a special occasion restaurant. The service was 5 star all the way. Our server was Anthony and he deserves special mention. We recently had brunch at the Carlton-Ritz and his service was above what we got there. He treated the kids as adults as did all the servers and made them a part of the experience. The filet migon was fantastic. We will be return customers forsure.

    Food has always been excellent. Service involves two different areas. You have your waiter that brings drinks, bread, remove your used plates, brings the bill, etc., then you have the carvers that bring the meat to the table. Until I complained to a manager, we would have our plackard denoting we want more meat on the "green side" and would wait more than 10 minutes without service. After the conversation with the manager, service by the meat servers was excellent.

    Dined on 8/31/2014
    I love Brazilian Steakhouses and have longed for one close to home for years. When Texas De Brazil came to town I got really excited so I had too check it out. The selection was well above the norm for this type of restaurant, the service was amazing and the food spectacular. They had an above average amount of servers so you were never left waiting on food to come around which can sometimes be a problem in a Brazilian Steakhouse. Price was in line for similar restaurants in this genre, they also have an online $25 off coupon for first time diners. The chairs are a bit uncomfortable and the tables are packed in close together but this is my only complaint. Spotless restrooms, overall really clean place.

    No need to be verbose, Texas de Brazil was worth the money and the drive. The salad bar was diverse and the various carvings of meat was mouth watering. I also had a glass of the house Pinot Noir which was a medium body red that was easy of the taste buds with not so many tannins. I look forward to my return visit.

  • The chef stood at the hot/salad bar
    ObjectiveDiner7
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    The meat was delicious and available in abundance & variety. What seems to stick in my mind, was how enjoyable it was to talk to one of the chefs as he stood at the hot/salad bar & proudly described the hot dishes+salad bar that had been prepared. Without his instruction I would not have known about the flour topping for the black beans. Pricing: In my estimation the price of the meal (for two people came to over $100.00+tip) makes this a "special occasion only" dining experience, which is sad because it would be great to share with a large group of friends routinely. Given the amount of food actually consumed, it seems a bit overpriced. And then there was the disappointment of learning the $25.00 B'day coupon is not accepted on weekends.
