    Been here several times, but this was the best experience. Server Dan was very helpful and knowledgable. The steaks were the highlight, especially the flank steak. They honored our temperature request for preferring rare cooked meat. Quality steaks seasoned simply and perfectly. Looking forward to a return visit.

    I'm not a big eater, but the meats are excellent so I make the most of it each time I go. The "pre-meat" buffet is really good too, but I can't do it justice if I want to have a lot of the meats.

    My first Texas de Brazil experience was in the Orlando, FL area where we hosted a post rehearsal dinner for one of my son's wedding. Like they say, "The first time is always the best!", but I have never had a bad experience at this chain. How can you go wrong, when courteous servers present dozens of freshly cooked meat choices for you to sample delivered on what I will call swords? If you don't see what you're you're looking for just ask - a few minutes later it arrives cooked to you specifications. Of course, all this excellent attention to detail comes at a price, but like Dad always said, "You get what you pay for!" and once you start frequenting Texas de Brazil, you'll receive discount coupons as a bonus! I LOVE THIS PLACE!

    Not for kids, though. The atmosphere is fine, but it is too expensive for the 6-12 age group, many of whom may not eat anything. My 5-year-old (6 in a month) would only eat rice. We wouldn't be able to come again with her for a very long time.

    Come prepare to get your fill of food. The variety available should be more than enough to please anyone. Between the different meats and choices at the salad bar, there's no reason for you to leave without a full stomach. Oh, and be prepared for the desert tray after the meal. The choices look simply scrumptious.

    My husband and I wasn't aware that they only served certain meats during lunch. I didn't see any where on the website saying they don't serve beef ribs, pork ribs or lamb chops at lunch. So we were kind of upset with that. We were actually going to leave but we had already started with the salad side.

    My fiancé and I went here for our anniversary. From the moment we walked in the door we were greeted kindly, and they asked if we were celebrating any occasions. During our meal, our glasses were never empty, and our waiter came by several times to ask if we needed anything. As soon as we flipped our cards to green, the meat servers were there with so many different options of cuts. Within a couple minutes or less, I had to flip my card back over because my plate was getting full. At the end of the meal, we asked about dessert, and our waiter brought a tray of their dessert selections. Everything looked delicious, but we chose the chocolate mousse cake, and they brought it on a plate with a candle and "Happt Anniversary" written on it!

    We received an online coupon the day after we dined for $16 off per person! We had 5 adults in our party, so this would have been a significant savings! We have dined there several times before and we have noticed that the service seems to be either hit or miss. This time was a miss. We had to ask for drink refills, the mashed potatoes and the bananas. We told the server several times what meats we were waiting on, and did not receive one cut until the end of our experience, even though we repeatedly asked for it (garlic sirloin). We purchase the VIP cards each year and consider Texas de Brazil the place to go for celebrations (we were celebrating our 48th wedding anniversary). This visit was a disappointment.

    This place never disappoints. We have been back several time and each time it meets all of our expectations. The ambiance was perfect, the open fire cooked Brazilian beef was amazing and cooked any way you want it from rare to medium well. The cooked meats were served on a sword and sliced to your specifications on to your plate, just like in Brazil. The buffet was gorgeous and everything quite fresh. They had several types of sliced deli meats, sushi, perfectly smoked salmon, and too many more lovely presentations to mention. Texas de Brazil is definitely worth visiting.

    This was a first time adventure for my husbands surprise birthday dinner. He never thought we would take him as a family. The experience was great and we plan on making this a standard on our celebration calendar. I have hinted that My birthday is just around the corner. The service, the ambiance, the food was incredible. We will definitely recommend this to our friends and co-workers and we will be back! Thank you for making my husbands 60th so special.

    It started with being sat at the wrong table. Continued with drinks being spilled by our waitress which she hand wiped into my husband's seat. When he returned from the salad bar he sat in the wet seat. Then had to clean the rest up himself. Our drinks stayed empty. We asked another server to fill them. Food was slow and a bit over cooked at first but, got on track quickly. Service is usually very good. I hope this is not the new normal.

    I enjoy Texas de Brazil but it is a restaurant that for me I would only come a couple of times a year at most. The food is very high quality however it seems that the dining experience always lends itself to feeling rushed. No one rushes you there but when they come around with the meats it seems like they all come at once so you kind of rush eating so you can get some from the next meat person. And because the food is on the high end of the price spectrum you feel you must eat a great deal to get your money's worth. I always feel uncomfortably stuffed when I leave. However the variety that is offered on the salad area is top notch.

    I've been a customer for years but the other night was the first time for my son and his significant other. My son made the statement several times, "I've died and gone to heaven." He was speaking about your different means of preparing steak. He tasted all the meats and everything from the salad bar and really enjoyed his visit, as well as, myself and his date. All of your staff, i.e., hostess, manager, and servers were all very attentive which also made for a very impressive first time for my guest. Keep up the good work.

    Everyone talks about healthy eating, and you would think that a place that has "all you can eat" would not be healthy, but Texas de Brazil is an exception. From the delicious salad & soup bar to the continuously offered meat selections, we could eat what we wanted, and decide for ourselves when we were satisfied. The wait staff was curtious and efficient, as well as the gauchos in their swift delivery of the meat selections. The dessert tray was tempting, but we decided to cap our meal off with coffee. A great dining experience!

    Only thing the manager ruined my surprise for my wife's 50th birthday. He didn't follow through with what he said he would do.. He didn't communicate with the server.. I had to do it myself. The gift wasn't bought out at dessert that I gave him at the door.. It confused the event and the server didn't have a clue.this is the reason my overall rating is low...

    My favorite restaurant time and time again. The ambiance is romantic yet relaxing. They have the largest salad bar I have ever encountered with a wonderful selection, and a cheese selection that any cheese connoisseur would treasure. The meats are cooked to your preference, although sometimes a little heavy on the rock salt, always delicious. My favorite was the medium rare Filet Mignon, juicy and melt in your mouth flavorful. Exquisite wine selection. Prompt service with a smile every time. If you want to feel as if you are the most important person in the restaurant, here is your gem!

    Our server's name was Andrew and he did an awesome job. We had been there before but had never been told of a specific drink from the bar. I have to admit I don't recall the name of it..guess that is a hint of how good it was...but had lime and rum. Any way, he was always making sure we were doing ok and such. Made great recommendations for desert too. The food there is always good.

    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.

    The staff and dinning area made for an enjoyable Anniversary evening with my wife. The staff was more than accommodating by serving the Brazilian style meats to the temperature of your liking. The salad bar is by far one of the best around with a Tuscany feel of fresh marinated olives, tomatoes, mozzarella, baby mushrooms, prosciutto, fresh lightly marinated asparagus, fine cheeses, smoked salmon, and many more interesting items.
