    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    If you have a budget and do not like suprises do not go. We were under the impression that it was all inclusive pricing. Drinks and desert are extra. After desert and tip we paid over $140 for 2 people with no alcohol involved. I had promised my husband that it would be approx 100 and he was a little upset with me. But if money is no object then it's a great place.

  • Not happy with new price.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/21/2014
    Had been to this restaurant many times before. Went there for my anniversary. That was a year ago and since I've frequented this restaurant the price has increased a few times. The last I had remembered it was $38. That was still a fair price and the food and outstanding customer service was well worth it. I had also recommend it to several colleagues and friends. I was surprised to find the new price at $44. Although your fine dining and outstanding service has not deteriorated, I don't think I'll find myself frequenting your establishment as much as I used to. Your were once my favorite dinner restaurant for all my business trips to San Antonio. Come back to a reasonable price and I'll be back more often. $38

    Took my bf here for his bday on a friend's recommendation. We were two couples and wanted for nothing. I asked my bf if he wanted anything else, and he barely had "the filet was good" out of his mouth and they had more at our table. We didn't even have to ask. And plenty of time for the girls to talk while the guys admire the flying wine girl! :)

    Love this place but this time I felt like I was in the "kids" section. All the tables around us had several small (under age 8) children. While most were very well behaved, this is not where I would have expected to be seated. Something seating host / hostess should consider when seating groups. Overall still great experience though.

    It is our first time trying Brazilian food and eating here we picked it to celebrate our anniversary all i have to say it was the best choice my wife and I could have made. Everything was wonderful from the moment you get there all the staff is very attentive they will go out off their way to make your experience a great one from the hostess to the waiters our waiter Nick he was more then awesome, cant name all the staff that was part of our lovely night. All the food is great from the salad bar to all the meats they offer.When you go a must try is their famous campirina drink with rum and ,one with citrus vodka,don't be shy try all the meats and last the price is very reasonable. Thank you Texas de Brazil for a great and beautiful night.

    Nice restaurant just steps off the Riverwalk. Tons of meat. When you arrive they send you to the salad bar which was big and fresh, but don't fill up too much as the main event is the meat. Make sure you do get the lobster bisque as it is great. You have a card with a green side and a red side. Green - bring on the meat, Red - no more meat for now. They tend to bring the cheaper items around more often, just wave them off and wait for your preferred meat. My favorites were the top sirloin and filet. Meat is fairly salty but can be ordered with less salt, but it will take longer. It was a pretty expensive meal for four, but my family enjoyed it. Service was excellent, but with all the servers going around with the meat, it was fairly hectic,

    we had six adults and 4 kids 3 and under and it cost $500.00 that was much higher then expected so we will not be coming there as often. also I drank about 3 beers but would have had more if the waitress would have came by more. she was very good, but took to long to get our drinks. you shouldn't be waiting very long for a drink if you paying the highest prices in town for food. the service should be the best.

    Our first time. Glad Valet parking for downtown was available. Streets have changed and it is hard to get around. When finished eating ( ate too much)!! We paid for our check with a gift card @100+ $40 cash for bill & tip to our waiter. The manager thinking we hadn't paid, followed us to front said we had a balance due. That was an insult! We would appreciate the manager check with waiters before making an embarasing situation. Certainly is a nice place to eat variety of foods & meats ! Enjoyed the complementary pecan pie for Ken with coffee. Good entertainment--trapeze !!

    I made reservations for several people for a business dinner and we were very happy with the food and service. The table was ready on time and we were immediately seated when we arrived. The salad bar offered many choices and everything was very fresh. The servers came by quite often with various choices of meats and all were flavorful, tender, and delicious! The manager came by and asked if anyone wanted a particular cut of meat and those who requested something were brought their choices immediately. The only negative thing I would say is that the restaurant is pretty noisy. We were seated at a long table and it was difficult to hear conversations. All in all it was a great experience and I would definitely return.

    My husband and I tried Texas de Brazil for our one year anniversary. It was such a great experience. The valet was totally worth it. We just drive right up to the building and jumped out of the car and didn't have to worry about parking downtown. The servers were great. They remembered how we liked our meats cooked and were dry willing to answer any questions. Everyone was very attentive. I'm pretty sure my water glass never reache half full it was refilled so frequently. The food was amazing! My favorite was the house special but everything I tasted was amazing! We would totally go back and would recommend it for anyone who finds the self in Texas. We were able to sit and just relax and enjoy the experience. No one rushed us at all. Love!

The salad bar was a sight for sore eyes. The red wine I chose was great for my palate and THE LAMB CHOPS, BEEF RIBS and GARLIC PICANAH were the story of my evening! The service was without a question, top notch! I felt like a celebrity!!! I will recommend this restaurant to all! A must visit!

    Food was great but I would not go back. I prefer Chama Gaucha over Texas De Brazil. The same food items kept coming around and that was when they came. I did spend a period with a empty plate waiting for service. I did not care for the atmosphere either and lighting was way to dark. We went for our anniversary and I guess I expected them to acknowledge it the way Chama Gaucha did and it wasn't. Overall I feel Chama Gaucha was friendly and service was better.

    Make sure you come hungry! The salad bar has a great selection and is always fresh. But you don't go to a Brazilian Steakhouse for the salad. TDB offers a wide array of meats that are served to you on a continual basis by the gauchos. The meat is well seasoned with sea salt and can be cooked to order if you don't like medium rare red meat or if you prefer light seasoning. The picana, bacon wrapped filet mignon, Brazilian sausage, garlic steak and lamb chops are my favorites and are consistently exceptional. Make sure you try the coconut/pineapple limeaid, and have the banana cream pie spiked with either the vanilla or almond liquer for a tasty dessert treat. TDB is on the expensive side, but is an enjoyable treat for the whole family!

    I only go to Fogo de Chao, but this place had better reviews for the San Antonio locations. I wish we didn't. There are fewer meats than Fogo and Texas de Brazil had mashed potatoes at your table instead of fried polenta. Not authentic at all. The biggest food disappointment was the pan de queijo. Whoever made them in the kitchen obviously has never had authentic pan de queijo. They were too small, very dense, and lacking in cheese. Normally these are golf ball sized and airy. There were also women servers, which Fogo doesn't have because women are never servers in Brazil. The service was terrible. Our waitress rarely checked on us. It was such an insult that she said "Here's your cheesy bread." IT IS CALLED PAN DE QUEIJO!
