    Even though I had a reservation I had to take a pager and go wait somewhere. I don't drink alcohol so I didn't want to wait at the bar. There was no adequate seating for those of us waiting to be seated. Things were better after we were seated about 15 minutes after our reservation time. We could see into the cooking area and noticed that the people seemed to do everything. What I mean is one person unwrapped the raw meat, put it on the grill, took a cooked rack of meat from the grill, wiped his face, and served the guests all without gloves or washing his hands. The salad bar had many items but was not really impressive. Expected more than garlic mashed potatoes on the side. This place was expensive but great for meat eaters.

    I truly enjoyed my experience at Texas de Brazil-Richmond. They are in a great location with a wonderful ambiance it felt imitate, though there are gauchos walking around with meat and tons of people, it was great. The servers worked together as a team. It was our first time they were wonderful explaining how everything works and I just loved it! We were celebrating a birthday and it was a little disappointing they are not allowed to sing happy birthday. I know it is an upscale atmosphere, but no one asked them to scream. A little whisper would have sufficed. However, overall is was awesome and I would totally recommend them to any and everyone. the food was fantastic and the services matched.

    We have dined many times at Texas de Brazil at Regency Square before it moved to Short Pump, and have been to the one at short pump four times now. The service has been lacking everytime until this last dining experience. This time we went for lunch and was well worth the money (despite not having filet served at lunch). The wait staff and gauchos were most pleasant and accommodating. It is nice that TDB supports the community and participates in fund raisers for local causes. We were able to make a donation to help hungry children and in return received a discount coupon. Im glad to see improvements in service.

    This is a buffet style restaurant. There is a salad bar that you have to prepare your own salad. Then their are three sides the waiter brings to the table (mash potatoes, fried cinnamon bananas, and Brazilian dinner rolls). Then there are unlimited choices of about five different meats to choose from that gets served at the table. The price included salad, meat, sides, and tap water. Drinks and desserts are not included. We visited on a Sunday and paid $25 per person for the main meal and additional price for anything else... I would recommend this restaurant to a friend only if they brought along coupons to reduce the price. Military personnel is offered 15percent discount. Other than that, Nice atmosphere on the inside.

    Unbelievable! The food was amazing, outstanding, fantastic, delicious, spectacular, etc, etc, etc....!!!!! I cannot express enough how great our dining experience was. I have heard many good things about your restaurant and have wanted to try it for years. I just wish it had not taken so long to finally make it happen. The food was great – the service was great – the price was a little steep….. :^) But it’s hard to argue when the experience was so amazing. Thank you! It was simply wonderful.

    So many people have told my husband and myself that this was a wonderful restaurant to go to. So finally we decided to go. The staff was wonderful. They were all pleasant and friendly. We were asked how did we like our meats prepared and we informed them medium well. They informed us there would be an additional 10 minute wait. Which was ok by us. The entire time we were there we never received or was offered anything that was medium well. It was all Medium rare. Why ask me how I like my food if you are not going to prepare it the way that I requested. After an hour of this we finally left. We were not happy with the food at all.

    The food is always awesome at this restaurant. Normally, the service is excellent too, but this time the woman that attended us was just okay. She was pretty good, but I did catch her chatting it up with her co-workers a couple of times instead of attending her tables. Overall though, it was a good experience.

    I loved our server and the service, until the very end when they briefly argued with my father over his dessert drink. The glass was not fitted for the amount of liquor, or the liquor wasn't poured enough, but if a table is about to pay 500 dollars for a meal, we shouldn't have to argue about an ounce of liquor. That being said, our whole table loved the well seasoned, medium rare meats, the drinks were unique and so tasty, and the salad bar was expansive. Even the desserts were lovely! It was my birthday, and they truly made it special. I was impressed and we all thoroughly enjoyed the evening! We will be back.

    This was a very good experience for my husband's birthday. The salad bar was wonderful; so many different options other than just salad. And the meat was excellent. This location only had 12 of the 16 options shown on the website, but it was plenty. Some of the meat was dry or overcooked, but overall it was delicious. It is definitely expensive but worth it for a special occasion.

    Great concept and food. Ambience has gone downhill a bit due to lack of dress code and table set-up vs Recency location. Great for groups. Not romantic due to lack of intimate/quiet seating options. Would go again with family or business group but not as a couple seeking a special night out.

    We had a LOVELY time there! We have been to this location probably 7-10 times and we always enjoy it but this time was especially nice! I almost called the manager to thank him for the great service and how impressed we were with their customer service! I also came one time to celebrate being a breast cancer survivor (thank God) and the waiter gave us a free dessert to take home (God knows you all feed us delicious steak and other foods to the point there is no room for dessert when we're there!!!). Smile. But, we would definitely recommend you all; we've also visited the Florida TDB in Orlando and they were good but if I had to give out an award it would be the Short Pump location! Thanks again! Fred and Kim :)

    Whether you are going out to a dinner date with that special someone, or going out with "The Crew" this is a great place to get amazing food for a relatively reasonable price. The salad and cold bar offer the best options of veggies, cheeses, cold cuts, and even more. When it comes to the meats, everything was cooked over fire and were the most tender cuts of meat available. The lamb and filet mignon were absolutly amazing; only to be outdone by the filet being wrapped with bacon. The parmesan chicken was moist and flavorful, and the drinks menu had a great variety. This place is an overall must for anyone who has ever left a restaurant with less than perfect expectations being met. Give it a try and you won't be disappointed.

    It was my dad's birthday, they sent him a coupon but wouldn't let him use it on his birthday because it was a Saturday. We were told we would get medium rare meet, and everything was cooked well. The last filet we got was grey in color and had a funny taste. The waiter was so busy we had to wait a long time for a check.

    I brought my father-in-law and his wife to Texas de Brazil for his birthday. He and his wife were vegetarians before but gave up that lifestyle about a year ago. They had a wonderful time with the salad bar and the constant rounds of meat...everything was delicious. The gauchos were very friendly with my 10 year old daughter, especially the lamb chop wait staff who always came around to my daughter as that is what she was eating the whole time. He was attentive to her needs. The waitress was also conscientious to my father-in-laws wife and always watched that the gauchos brought her medium well meat. Even though we were stuffed, the waitress insisted we take the free birthday dessert home. Glad we did. It was delicious.

    We (my wife and I) were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and some friends and family recommended this restaurant for a good place to dine. I have to say that I was thoroughly impressed with the décor, the presentation of the salad area and of course the entrées. This was our first time in this type of restaurant and I loved it. The staff were pleasant, courteous, helpful as were the servers and the "entre' presenters". The whole experience was delightful and I will definitely be back as well as I will definitely refer others to this establishment. 5 star rating in my book..

    This is my son's favorite place to go to celebrate his birthday and we have had a great time for the past 4 years. The choices at the salad bar are phenomenal and the meats they serve to you at tableside are "to-die-for" tasty. All 5 of us enjoyed our meals. The only negative comment is on the wine assortment/prices. The wines are very overpriced for what you get - bottles and single glasses. Although restaurants mark up their wines over what they can be bought in a store, this restaurant marks them up almost double of other restaurants. Otherwise the evening was quite a success.

    TEXAS DE BRAZIL--IT IS WHAT IT IS!!!!! A VERY INTERESTING SALAD BAR AND VERY GOOD DELIVERED MEATS. THE MEAT SELECTION IS VARIED AND VERY FLAVORFUL. THE WINE LIST IS HIGHLY "SUSPECT". THE VINTAGES NEED A SERIOUS MAKEOVER. THE WHO'S-WHO OF CALIFORNIA WINES ARE REPRESENTED AND NOT MANY "LOCAL" FAVORITES ARE TO BE FOUND. THIS IS RICHMOND!!! NOT DALLAS OR LOS ANGELES OR NEW YORK. BEWARE OF "BIG CITY" PRICING.
