    This was our first time at the restaurant, it was also mine and my wife's annivarsary. They were very pleasant on arrival, even wished us happy anniversary. it was a very slow evening there, only a handful of tables were seated. the waiter was very nice explained the whole process and got our drinks. The salad bar was very nice. The lobster bisque soup was incredible rest of salad bar was good. when we turned over our cards, the meat started coming fast. we must of had 5 different meats on our plate with in minutes. most of the meat was good, some were a little salty. When we were done eating they cleaned up the table and offered us a piece of cake for our annivarsary. It was an interesting experience.

    My wife and I were looking for a nice spot for our anniversary. I personally get nervous when it comes to picking restaurants. Let's just say my wife can be hard to please when it comes to customer service and food quality. But let me tell you that we were both blown away by the place. My wife absolutely loved the food and the service. Quentin was our server and he was outstanding. You could tell that he loves what he does. I wish I could remember the one manager's name because he was exceptional as well. He gave my wife and I glasses of champagne on the house to celebrate our anniversary. I want to truly thank the restaurant and all of the hard working staff for giving us such a memorable dinning experience. You have gained two customers for life. And more importantly you made my beautiful wife happy. So thank you.

    The meat were as perfect as always. The salad bar is top notch. Great lobster bisque. This time I was seated between the salad bar and a group of 20, which made it a bit busier than I would have liked. A few times we were overlooked in favor of the large group, but our waiter was fantastic. He made sure we saw every cut we wanted. I can't wait to go back.

    Although I love the food and ambience, to charge for every soft drink is a bit much. There should be some consideration in changing this policy. If that's the case, lower the price and charge a two drink minimum. That's my only problem with this establishment, other than that I love it to death. I do think the price is fair for what you offer overall though..

    Revisited with my husband on my birthday and just like last time the service was great. Anthony is the guy you want if you want personality, attention to detail, and the right mix of availability without too much bother. We never went without a drink refill, and he was friendly as all get out without being too talky. We will be back again for sure. We're not pork eaters and the restaurant catered to our needs perfectly.

    Yes, they have an awesome salad bar. Yes, the service is top notch. Yes, everything looks delicious. Yes, your meat is laden in salt. It may seem like you are eating a ton of meat, but, in truth, you get such a sliver of meat, you can practically see through it! You CAN ask for your meat without salt, but, they seem to forget you whale you sit there and wait. Long story short, you feel full and over stuffed rather fast, you are amazed. You just don't realize you are just so bloated from all that SALT!!!!

    I was disappointed with the service. The meat servers stopped coming to out table and so we had to request for food. I did not think this place was designed in this manner where u literally beg the servers to bring more food. I had booked a table for 8 guests and by the end of the dinner only a few were satisfied.

    Dined on 10/31/2014
    I've been to Texas De Brazil many of times, usually it is busy but this time it was very dead. Everytime the waiters brought the meat around we got the first of the cut. It was very salty and made our party lose their appetite very fast. I was very disappointed about that. The service was great but it was upsetting to have spent all that money on food and wasn't satisfied. I didn't want to complain because I felt bad but would really appreciate something in return if you want to keep a good customer.

    We went on a Sunday where they closed at 9 pm. Half of our party was late BUT that did not change their service!!! They catered to all of us. Never kicked us out. Waited on us hand and foot. They even asked if we had a favorite we wanted them to prepare for us. I WILL dine here many many times. Tyler the bartender GREAT service

    Continue your search, there are many better restaurants out there. They claim that theycook the meat to medium rare, but the majority was well done and salted far too much. The servers are over worked resulting in bad customer service. The drinks are overpriced. You could buy a fifth of whiskey for the price of two Manhattans.

    My husband and I took our daughter, her boyfriend and my friend's daughter who was visiting from Baltimore on the Ducky Tour and then came here for dinner. The tour starts and ends right in front of the entrance which was perfect. The service was five star, from the hostess, the bartender while we waited briefly and our server to the ethnically clad meat servers---outstanding! I highly recommend the Sangria it is superb. The meal is very expensive but the quality of the salad bar and the meats is outstanding. I would highly recommend this for fun special occasions. We did not feel a bit rushed and loved our seat by the kitchen--the food came out hot!

    After seeing this restaurant a couple years ago, it intrigued us then, but it was all but forgotten. I decided I wanted to try something a lil different for our 5th wedding anniversary, so I began searching and after reading all the review's, I was reminded of it, it sounded amazing, and it was.. The food was beyond delicious, personal faves for my wife and I were the bacon wrapped chicken and bacon wrapped filet. But truly, their entire line up was delicious. Our server Alec was an amazing host and being our anniversary made our evening end perfect with a special treat he added to our desert. Price is a lil steep, but absolutely worth it! We cannot wait to return there asap!! Make sure to pace yourselves, you'll want to try everything!

    I LOVE meat. This place was absolutely perfect for me. Chicken legs, bacon wrapped chicken, lamb chops, filet mignon, bacon wrapped filet, wow. I don't think I was ever more full after eating there. The chocolate mousse cake for dessert topped it off perfectly as well. The service was excellent as well, no complaints there. At around $60 per person for the full dinner and a dessert, I really think the value was great and I will surely be back.
