    I took my partner to this restaurant for his birthday and he loved it. He was in smiles the whole entire night. We loved the food. Our waiter was extremely kind and attentive. The environment was so chill and romantic. I made a special request using open table to have the restaurant write "Happy Birthday *My partner's name*" on the dessert plate and it was done. The waiter brought the desert out behind him and he was extremely surprised. He loved it. The restaurant was amazing and he won't stop talking about it. We are definitely coming back very soon because he can't stop raving about the parmesan chicken, key lime pie, and potatoes.

    Took my daughter for her 19th Birthday, a friend of ours told us that if she was a meat and potato person she would love this place. My husband who is very skeptical about dining out (spoiled on my cooking) absolutely raved about the quality of food, the abundance of choices, and the great service. My daughter commented to the staff that "if this is what heaven is like, take me now!" Truly a new favorite place to dine.

A couple of the people that we brought, it was their first time, and it was so great to experience that with them. We had an amazing time, our waiter was PHENOMENAL, and the food was as exquisite as always.

    seeing one of these restaurants on television I've always wanted to try one. Well we found one close by saved some cash and gave it a try. Let me tell you it was worth the drive and the price. Yes we had a reservation a huge must, we were seated about 15 min after our booked time. But they were very apologetic. We sat down our waiter came by after another 10 min to explain how the restaurant operated then we were off to enjoy the salad bar. A beautiful salad/soup bar was lined top to bottom with so many tasty items it was hard to choose what to get first. Once your back at your seat your given garlic mashed potatoes, plantains to cleanse your palate (recommend ) and Brazilian biscuits. Then the "goucho's" (meat waiters) begin to stop by with so many choices of beautifully grilled medium rare meats, that can Also be prepared to your liking. My favorite being the top sirloin. Although I didn't care for the chicken parmesan, I do have to say it was like eating cotton candy just melted in your mouth. I would definitely recommend everyone to give it a try and take a very good appetite, pace yourself and enjoy.

    We went to Texas de Brazil for my fiancé's birthday dinner, his choice. It was our first time there and I cannot believe the extreme level of customer service we received and the food was excellent. You leave so full but wanting more! I would definitely recommend this to anyone even thinking about dining here. The only problem was getting the bill at the end! But over all a phenomenal experience!

    I have reviewed Texas de Brazil on a different site & give them 4 stars however after this last visit they are getting bumped down to 3 stars! I have been going here 3-5 times a month since their opening. Waiter/waitress service is always "GREAT", but due to the fact that I like my meat medium to medium well, gaucho service not so much! On this particular visit my wife & I only received 1 piece each of their top sirloin each, which is the main reason we go. Got tired of waiting & just left. Looked for manager as we left, but he was no where to be seen. Very disappointed, & we will probably not be back for a very looong time if ever! To bad, because I love their food, but am not gonna drive 45 minutes for bad meat service!?!?!?

  • Wasn't WOW'd
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/9/2014
    We started off the night by arriving at 6:15pm and were told that it would be about a 45 minute wait. Me and my girlfriend sat at the bar and waiting almost 2 hours for our table after at minimum 5 requests to the hostess to know when we were going to be seated. Once seated we found ourselves constantly waiting for the meat guys to come by. The meat was really good but the wait in between the little slices of meat that you get was unbearable. For the $45 price tag my expectation was that i would be getting food whenever i wanted it but this was not the case as it took forever for the meat guys to come around. Also being a Brazilian steak house i was expecting something more cultural there but it was nothing more than a fancy restaurant.

    Excellent service, soup/salad bar was amazing with many different appetizers. Gaucho's kept bringing different meats nonstop, all seasoned with rock salt and cooked a perfect medium rare. Wine list was full of great wines, and their house special drink, the Caipirinha, is a must try. Highly recommend this place to food/meat lovers.

    It sounds silly to talk about a $43 meal and first mention the salad bar, but this place has the best salad bar I've ever seen. Things like smoked salmon, imported cheeses and lunch meats, pickled items (cherry peppers, beets, onions), sushi, and much more - all very high quality. However, the meats are still the reason to go -- they're delicious!!! Again, high quality and prepared perfectly. The flank steak, Brazilian Picanha (top round), and the bacon-wrapped filet were the favorites of everyone at our table. The pork and chicken were pretty dry though. This isn't the type of restaurant anyone should be eating at daily, but it's phenomenal for special occasions. I think I ate more meat at this meal then I typically eat in a week :P

The restaurant was a perfect complement to the beautiful woman that I had the privilege to escort. It was the first time that we both had visited Texas de Brazil, and certainly intend to return, bringing other guests with us that they, too, might enjoy the wonderful food, the excellent service, gracious host and servers, and an atmosphere that was excellent.

    This is an annual outing for our family. This visit left me slightly disappointed. The service level was the lowest we have ever had. The issue was not friendliness, but attention to our table for refills, clearing plates, etc. the meats were good but not as good as previous visits. The rice and beans and lobster bisque were exceptional. Our kids absolutely love churascurias and the cheese rolls.

    Food and service were excellent! Definitely go with an empty stomach, and don't fill up on the salad bar. The little bread bites that came on the table were sooo good. The mashed potatoes and caramelized bananas (almost like a dessert) were great as palate cleansers for all the meat that was served. Loved the flank steak, filet mignon wrapped in bacon, garlic picanha, and brazilian sausage. However, as I'm looking at the "meats" section of online menu, I see that we only got 7 out of 16 possible meat choices. We had to request lamb chops, which were just okay on flavor. I suggest that you have a list of what meats you serve, so that customers are aware and can ask for what they haven't seen yet.
