    Wasn't expecting much as it's in a tourist trap section of town; but the food was amazing! I would definitely recommend going light with the salad/side dish bar so that you have room for the meat. Every course of meat was better than the last. Can't wait to go back!

    The meats were cooked to perfection! They were flavorful and tender! Everything else was gravy so to speak. We were stuffed when we left. Only downside is that you must stuff yourself to feel you got your money's worth at $45/plate. Also it was disappointing that the coupon I got for signing up for email club is not good on weekends!

    it was my first time there. Brought my husband for a birthday dinner. The atmosphere is lacking any privacy, felt like a fast food place. Food was good, drinks a bit overpriced, service pretty good, but it was so loud that we couldn't even hear our server. For $45 a person , I expected a little bit more. Not coming there for a special occasion. May come back for steaks though.

    It was our first time at a Texas de Brazil restaurant. All was a great experience with great food, atmosphere and the Meat Runners were wonderful. Our waiter though was like a ROBOT with no customer service skills. He was cold and unfriendly and definitely did not make you feel welcome.(his trainee for the night, was very nice and friendly)

You have the best salad bar, ever, and your meat is amazing! We were even able to request low sodium meat preparation for my husband, too. Our service was awesome!

    Texas de Brazil is a GREAT dining experience. I noted in my reservation that I am gluten free and the chef came out to speak with me. I expected "avoid the soup, avoid..." But what I got was a tour of the salad bad from the chef, only 4 things to avoid, all the meats are gluten free AND the rolls at the table were made from tapioca flour so I could actually eat bread. At a restaurant. Everything was delicious.

    My husband and I went to Texas De' Brazil for our anniversary dinner. Everything was great, including the food. The place was a man's dream! However, after trying about 3 or 4 of the meats offered, you can't possibly eat any more. I wouldn't change a thing about the food, but my husband and I definitely didn't eat $90 worth of food. We enjoyed the dinner, but probably wouldn't go back frequently.

    Although the food was amazing, we were most impressed with the service from our waiter, Cory, to the servers to the manager that stopped at our table. The restaurant is beautiful. We were a little disappointed that the outside seating was not open. We were told that they did not want to take a chance because of the weather, but it was a beautiful night and on a Wednesday night, the place had enough empty room that if it had started to rain, we could have easily moved inside, but all in all, the experience was amazing. We will definitely return and have already told everyone we know they have to visit the restaurant.

    I took my family to Texas de Brazil for a special occasion on Saturday, August 30th, and we had a wonderful time. The venue is delightful, the food fantastic, and the service was top quality. It was my first time at Texas de Brazil, and it was delightful. My family had dined there before and were anxious to go there again. All in all, it was a wonderful evening, as we definitely look forward to another great meal at your fine establishment.

    Saw this restaurant advertised for restaurant week, visited their website, and decided this was where I wanted to go for my birthday. Signed up for their email list and received a $25 gift certificate!. My husband I went on a Friday nite with a 6:30 p.m. reservation. Service was excellent all the way around - hostess, waitress, and meat carvers. Salad bar was out of this world - choices you don't normally see such as hearts of palm and smoked salmon. House-made ranch dressing was excellent. Meat carvers were very attentive. I recommend the house specialty meat and the skirt steak as outstanding choices. The only drawback is the high ceilings which make the restaurant loud and echoing. Will definitely return with friends/family!

    We have always favored another nationally renowned steakhouse as our special occasion, "burgh," dining destination. After our experience at Texas de Brazil in Station Square, my wife and I agree that it has catapulted to the top of our list. While you never get the sense that you are rushed (and you better pace yourself), you can be eating within minutes of being seated. The explosion of flavors from the skewer options almost gives you a complex of guilt as you taste one bite while your head swivels to the next approaching gaucho carver. It was a wonderful night to remember. Happy 30th Anniversary sweetheart!

    Of course, you go here for the meat, which was great. However, the one thing that really bothered me was the water situation. First, the poorly designed water pitchers spilled water on the table every time our server filled our glasses. By the end of the meal, we had puddles all over the place. Because of the design of the pitchers, the server was resting the edge of the pitcher on each glass. Gross considering no one had straws. Might be a minor complaint but it's still uncalled for especially in a restaurant that is trying to be classy. Salad bar was also good but not great. But don't fill up on this...save your appetite for the meat.

    Some of the salad bar items are kinda bland(looking at you spicy shrimp, sauteed mushrooms), but it had a nice variety. The lobster bisque is the sort that lacks lobster chunks. The price is just over the top expensive. However the meats were all delicious. Well seasoned, perfectly cooked, and juicy. I'd go again for a special occasion, but it's too pricey for even a fancy date. P.s. be sure to wear some loose clothes.

    We were seated immediately to our table even a bit earlier that our reservation. The restaurant filled up but the service was impeccable as our server Ray, was extremely attentive to our needs explaining the process as well as pampering our requests. When going to this restaurant usually denotes the need for meat, the salad board had varying, different types of fare to accommodate anyone's cravings including soup. When we had a special request for our meet cravings, that request was filled almost immediately due to the attentiveness of the staff. Great job, we will visit again.

    I made a reservation for a group of 8 people, and the food was delicious. Overall we had an excellent experience. Our server went out of his way to get a skewer of meat for one person at our table because he had missed it. Unfortunately, the placement of our table was lacking. We were put along a wall with no lighting overhead. The darkness made it difficult for our server to pour our water glasses,and the placement of the table along a wall made it difficult for the gaucho's to access the two people in the middle seats of the table. If we had been sat at a better table, I would probably have rated a full five stars because everything else was excellent.

    Service was great. Anthony, our server, was very attentive. The carvers supported him. The salad - appetizer bar is exceptional. The assortment with the cheeses and meats and vegetables and soups and salads are outstanding. The Brazilian drinks with the citrus flare make the meal. The lamb chops are to kill for. Try the signature beef the taste it is unreal. The only negative is the noise level. The room is high ceilings and all the sounds bounce off the walls. And on top of all the was the special pricing for Restaurant Week.

    An outstanding "salad" bar with everything from smoked salmon, sushi, antipasto meats and olives, to fresh greens, hearts of Palm and much more. Don't overgraze because the best is yet to come. With over a half dozen meat selections delivered to your table, you will be hard pressed to pick a favorite. Our group loved the house specialty top sirloin and the little lamb chops best, but there was not a bad choice to be made. Desserts were just average so use up your appetite on the meats and salad bar.

    I have been to a number of Brazialian steakhouses and Texas de Brazil was very "pretty" but did not deliver in food quality or service. Waiter was personable but very slow (desert took 33 minutes with no explanation??). He never asked to refill our drinks but the servers did refill our waters. Salad bar, one of the main parts if this experience, was weak and not well maintained. Meat taste was mediocre. Worst of all the men's room looked like it had not been cleaned for hours. We will stick with Fogo or a traditional steakhouse if we are going to spend $400.00 next time.

    Food was fantastic as usual, however the service this time left some to be desired. It was disappointing because I brought my family who had never been here before. It was a struggle to keep our iced tea full, he never stopped by enough, and when he did, we would see him do other stuff after we asked for more to drink, instead of bringing us something to drink. He blamed it on the restaurant wanting them to not leave tables ungreeted for too long and not make them wait, however I guess his point was that we could wait. The manager we encountered was not that much more helpful either. Not acceptable in my standards for food of this price. Other than that the experience was good.

    Always wanted to try this style of food. Really excited until we actually ate. Somehow NONE of the meats actually stood out as memorable although my favorite was the lamb chops with the homemade mint jelly. Everything just tasted the same. Great example of how quantity is never as much value as quality. The Lobster Bisque on the salad bar had great flavor but no lobster. Nothing on the salad bar stood out as fabulous either. The dressings, while homemade, were all bland tasting and lifeless. Not a horrible meal but, for the price, am very likely not going back
