    My husband and I dine at Texas de Brazil Detroit very often and decided to make it our dinner destination for Sweetest Day. We keep returning because the food and the service are outstanding but this night really went above and beyond! We had two servers waiting on us regularly (Chelsea was our main server, although I unfortunately can't remember the other girl's name) and both were absolutely wonderful! Every morsel of meat that came to our table was perfect and of course the buffet was stellar, as always. We had multiple managers visit our table to ask how the food and service was which was nice; makes you feel like they really care about your experience. We always recommend this restaurant to our friends and will continue to do so!

    Not what I expected. clueless server (drink order wrong 4 times and we were just having sodas). The "gauchos" seemed miserable. No hot side dish selection (1 SMALL plate of mashed potatoes for 4 people). I asked quietly of the server if they offered anything special and instead of being aware of and having the ability to handle it, he sent for the manager who smugly turned it into a awkward table side negotiation. The slivers of meat were decent but in the end it was like eating a pile of over seasoned thin sliced hot deli meat with spoonful of potatoes. The salad bar was fun and had interesting offerings but that alone isn't worth the almost $30 per person lunch price.

    We decided to dine here for our 5 year anniversary. The service was absolutely great and so was the food. They had top of the line food choices in the buffet area for appetizers. The lobster bisque soup was amazing, and unlimited! The atmosphere was really fun, warm and inviting, we definitely felt very comfortable even though it's kind of an upscale restaraunt. Definitely would like to go back for another special occasion sometime.

    We have been to this location a few times since they opened. The first couple of times the wait staff was sub par, but our server this time was attentive and friendly. It seemed as though our location was passed by with the meat serving several times in lieu of larger parties, but our waiter tracked down the items we wanted and they came over shortly thereafter. My only negative comment is the level of salt they coat the meat with, which is a little overwhelming and guaranteed to leave a taste in you mouth. If you have a cappucion or desert the taste is subdued, but who has room for desert after "getting you meat on!"

    Great food. My girlfriend and I love this place. All of the food is excellent. We have been here a couple of times and the service was top notch as well. Warning, the selection on the salad bar with different meats, cheeses, and soups is awesome and you might fill up so much on that you will find it hard to save room for the selection of steaks, chicken, porks and other meats that is the main course. I highly suggest signing up for their e-mail as you get dinner offers and coupons that help take some of the sting out of the bill. The food is so good it is worth every penny though.

    Our first experience wasn't great because we were sitting by a group and the gauchos kept walking right by us to serve them first (and would then be out of food and we'd have to wait for them to return. .. this was at lunch time). This second visit was better. We were again sitting by a group but there were only a couple times where my plate was empty and gauchos walked by without stopping.

    Husband took me here for our Anniversary. Excellent food. The salad buffet was awesome with unique offerings and the table side meat carvings were great. We enjoyed everything presented to us. This experience allowed us to try different things that we would not necessarily have ordered at other restaurants. Good restaurant however it's not a place to stick around after dinner and have a drink at the bar. The bar area was completely dead at 8:00 on a Saturday night.

    The salad area, in my estimation, is the best part (and one of the best salad bars around). Our favorite meat selections are the filet mignon, the flank steak, and the Brazilian picanha (the signature meat selection of Texas de Brazil) - don't forget to choose this one when the gauchos come to your table.

    Love Brazilian food. Was looking forward to the meat experience. This one has a long way to go in order to even be close to Fogo de Cheo. Overal lmeat was way too salty and the qulaity was average. Lamb was tender but for 50.00 each I think the place coudl afford a better cut of meat. Chips need to be min 1 inch thick and not over cooked. Overall dissapointing.

    The food was great! Nice salad bar with an assortment of fresh veggies, salads cheeses, salmon and shrimp. The meat was well seasoned and juicy, I loved the lamb chops in particular. The service could have been better. We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation and didn't get seated until 10 minutes after our reservation time. We saw people who did not have a reservation get seated before us, we were a group of four, so it shouldn't have been a problem to seat us on time. Then the waitress took a little to long to get to us for drink orders. We also had to ask/remind her that we had yet to receive the mash potatoes, bread and fried bananas. I felt like we had to grab her attention a couple of time for things throughout the evening.

    Texas de Brazil was a excellent experience. From the service to the food everything was great. The salad bar very different from any other salad bars I have been to. Nothing was dried out, and everything was fresh and neatly presented. The buffet style food is freshly cooked as well and perfectly seasoned to your own desires. And most of all if they have the green light the food just keeps coming back around. The cocktails were a delight as well. Very fancy place to visit. The experience here alone I will never forget!

The salad bar provides so many unique food options from tabbouleh to lobster bisque, you're sure to find something that appeals to your taste buds! And you won't be disappointed with their selection of perfectly seasoned cuts of meat from parmesan crusted chicken to seared lamb chops.

    I've dined at TDB a number of times and enjoyed each visit. This visit I invited friends who had never dined at TDB before. Our reservation was for 7:30pm, we were seated at about 8:05pm. The table that we were finally seated at was vacant when we arrived. We requested certain meats and waited 20 minutes to be overlooked. I'm glad that it was not my first visit, I'll return; I'm not sure that my friends will.

    Before going to TdB, the only negative feedback I read was meat served on the more well-done side took more time. When we were seated, I notified the waiter my wife prefers her steak on the well-done side. The food carvers did a greg job of catering to her. No complaints here!
