    Texas de Brazil totally exceeded our expectations. The food was absolutely delicious from the amazing salad bar to the superbly cooked variety of meats. They did not give huge portions, which was great, therefore we were able to eat all the varieties they served. The Service was impeccable and the whole evening was an outstanding experience! We will definitely return for another fabulous meal!

    This is the first time that I took my parents to the restaurant. We made a reservation and even though we showed up a little late the hostess took great care of us. Greg was our server and he was phenomenal. He always brought us new clean plates and made sure that we had plenty of water in our cups. The manager came to our table and made sure everything was going well. The employees that brought out the food were courteous and professional. The food was warm and cooked with great flavor. This the third time that I am coming to this location but this is the first time I was using the reservation system. It allowed me to easily change the time of my reservation and it was very convenient.

    My partner and I received a coupon in the mail for $25 when two are dining. We went over with another couple that also received the same coupon. When we were seated at the table and presented the server with the coupons and asked if each couple could use one. She said that she thought it would be ok. We said that if it wasn't ok, that we would sit at two adjacent tables. It wasn't until we went to pay that she informed up that we could only use one. I asked to speak with the Manager "Marcos" to explaine the situation. He was rude and wanted nothing to do with discussing this with me. He quoted some corporate rule that was not stated anywhere. We won't be returning. We'll go back the Chima.

    Texas de Brazil was a fantastic place to eat dinner that consists of a lot of different cuts of beef , lamb and some chicken, the servers bring it around to your table and you tell them how many pieces of each cut you want- flank steak, beef ribs ( YUM!), lamb loin chops ( the BEST!) , chicken (parmesan coated), sirloin steak, etc. The salad bar is also very nice- great portions of green beans, asparagus, olives, potato salad, sweet thin sliced pineapple, soup ( lobster bisque- the night we were there) , jasmine rice ( hot), sautéed mushrooms, scalloped potatoes, etc. I highly recommend this place - the manager James came to our table to make sure our coupons ( off the internet) were applied. Our server David was also great!

    The food was absolutely amazing and phenomenal. The service was excellent and very professional. The only thing I believe that should be fixed is the chairs. The wood floors make it so that the chairs slide out very easy and you can't sit in the same spot. But other than that, everything was excellent.

    Great atmosphere for a special occasion if you've never been. You can get the same quality meat, if not better for less than 50 a plate. Wine list is ok. Service is excellent, very polite and attentive staff. This is definitely a gimmicky dining establishment that you should experience once and not bother with again. In the end, you don't feel like you've gotten your checks worth of food, even if you're full.

She knew it was her 14th birthday, she knew her favorite meat was "The Special" or Picana. We absolutely love this place and the service. Thank you for a great night !

    Amazing place. Great food, great people! The food to start off was the way I liked it. I wanted medium for my meats and they would bring it out and if they didn't have it they made sure they would bring it out right away. The customer service was exceptional! Friendly staff and manager. Our server Xavier was great. Highly recommend this place if your in Florida or even in the area. Experience what I experienced.

    I called to make a reservation, they never responded, so did it thru Open Table. When I got there, I was reprimanded for making two reservations. She then seated us in the front (horrible location) and told me that there were no other tables even though i had apparently made 2 reservations. Server was attentive to start with and at the end, but forgot about us in the middle when we needed drink refills. I gave a coupon to him at the beginning of the meal and realized later that he forgot to apply it. Salad bar was a jumble of items that were overly salty.Half the party had to come by taxi. They told us we were on our own to find a cab at the end of the night. Not what you would expect from a restaurant of this level

    Took my wife for our 17th anniversary. This was FAR and AWAY the best dining experience we've ever had. The food was absolutely out of this world. Every detail in this place is carefully looked after. The gauchos insisted on meeting my wife's discerning tastes until she could hold no more. The waitstaff might as well be the Maharaja's servants with the way they attend to every person. I could go on and on about each cut of meat that was served (and served, and served). The salad bar was so diverse, fresh and delicious I almost forgot I was in a steak house. Oh, and for the record...though the Brazillian Picanha is really a top sirloin cut...OMG! I don't usually eat beef, but we couldn't get enough! We will visit again (and again).

    Fly in my cocktail to start with. Filet mignon tasted like liver, most meats were overcooked and very dry. Only the flank steak was worth having. For the price, overrated restaurant. There are much better Brazilian steakhouses a few miles away which are much better and worth every dollar.

    Unfortunately the service wasn't what I have come to expect from this restaurant. We visit monthly and always enjoy the food and the service. We waited for at least 10 minutes after being seating before we had to go ask to be attended to. Service was just off all around all night. The manager did come by and address the issue and buy us dessert which was appreciated. It just seemed like a different restaurant that we have known for several years now.......I genuinely hope it was just an off night

    We love to eat. Simple as that. However we love to eat quality food only. When you say it's steak night we think of Ruth Chris or Morton's for a good steak. However in this place you are able to experience greatness at it's best. Instead of being tied down with one big great steak at this place you are able to sample cuts of meat, pork, chicken, and lamb. So as you can see you are not tied down to just one cut of meat. The quality of the food makes you feel like you died and went to heaven. Also please do not forget their salad bar. What can l say about their salad bar? Everything from quality soups like Lobster Bisque to items on the salad bar like Baked Salmon and many many more tasty great foods. Makes this a great place to dine

    As we were being seated we were told all of our meats were cooked medium rare and if that was OK? That was fine and is the way we enjoy our meats. After seating we went to the salad bar which is very nice with lots of good tasty items on it and had a small plate which was good. When the meats arrived they came over with filet Mignon chunks about the size of a plum wrapped in bacon. They were well done and dry we did not eat them. After that the next 5 different meats came over cooked not one was medium rare. We ordered a piece of medium rare steak after 35 minutes of overcooked offerings and were told it would take 20 minutes to receive the steak. We agreed and waited. it was a long night not very special like we hoped. The server was sorry

    We went for my son's 20th birthday June 29th (Sunday) party of 5 - 4 had the meal and 1 with salad bar. We were sat and no one came to the table for 17 min - food was great but the top sirloin and lamb chops were scarce while the chicken and cheaper options were abundant. When I was given the check - we were billed 5 Meals instead of the 4 plus salad bar. so we had to wait for that to be changed. The survey the servers provided before leaving asked 'Did a manager visit your table?' No they did not or I would have politely told them we sat and waited far too long for drinks and an explanation of how the food is served. At $40+ a person I think the service could definitely have been better. Right now I'm in no hurry to return.
