My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary, the service from the staff from the front door throughout made it very enjoyable. We will return. We have only come for special occasions because of the pricing. All in all we will return.

    We chose to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary at Texas de Brazil. It was a great decision! The service was excellent, the staff's advice helped us choose the wine we wanted, and they were very attentive in anticipating our needs. The food was over the top!!

    First, you should know that you'll be eating "Churascaria style"; meat cooked over wood and brought tableside on a spit and carved to order. Each diner has a small round piece of cardboard, red on one side and green on the other. Green means keep serving and red stop. The waiters will keep offering and serving till you indicate otherwise. There is a communal dish of garlic potatoes, ripe plantains and delicious pan de queso (cheese bread). We were pushed to order wine and other alcoholic beverages, which we found expensive and would have severely increased our bill, so we abstained. There is an entertaining "wine angel" who performs acrobatics on a cable while selecting wines. Everything we ate was delicious, including the salad bar, which you should peruse lightly lest you ruin your appetite for what is coming. It should be noted that you can elect to just have the salad bar, which will satisfy most anyone. I must say that, after eating in a wide variety of restaurants, that the deserts are memorable. Sometimes deserts seem an afterthought, but Texas de Brazil offers a wide variety, including Brazilian dishes. Because of the cost, we eat here sparingly, treating it like a well earned reward. This brings me to the only complaint(s) that I have. San Antonio's downtown is difficult to navigate and finding a place to park is even more difficult. Our dinner guest arrived separately, so we both had to pay $10 to park, adding to an already expensive night out.

    This was the 6th or 7th time to dine at Texas de Brazil, San Antonio. We have always enjoyed our experience and thus became a repeat customer. On Monday, November 10,(6:00 PM reservation) we were very disappointed in the service we received from our waiter. He was not attentive, long times waiting for drink refills, had to ask 4 times for dessert tray and coffee. The food was excellent and servers were terrific as usual. We had invited another couple to join us that evening and this was their first visit. We were very apologetic to them but doubt they will return to dine.

    Bring your appetite when you go to Texas de Brazil. Or, if a member of your party can't eat so much, the salad-bar-only option is a good solution, because this is no ordinary salad bar; it is a superb salad bar, including soup. Just when we thought we'd seen it all in the restaurant world, by husban and I were surprised by this totally different concept of sampling so many different meat courses in one dinner. Service is intensive and excellent; the hostess even brought me a black napkin when she saw that I was wearing black, knowing that the white lint from white napkins is an annoyance for we who wear black. The roasting and grilling of the meats was expertly done, and seasonings were fabulous.

    My husband & I along with two good friends dined at Texas de Brazil on a weekend night. We made reservations through Open Table. We were seated in the main dining room which is a very large room with a high ceiling. At one end is a glassed off section holding thousands of wine bottles and is where the woman on a swing does her thing during the evening. She is quite the acrobat and it is interesting to watch -for a while, then we tired of it. The salad buffet was good but not outstanding, the meats were delicious and the wine choices are superb. But the noise level is over the top which made it difficult to hold a good conversation with your friend across the table. Dress was casual to dressy. We would recommend the restaurant.

    Texas de Brazil is to be commended for the excellent service, attentive staff, wonderful decor and well-stocked salad bar - the selection was varied and constituted a meal in itself! The vertical wine cellar looked amazing, although we did not see the trapeze in action. The meat selection was a little limited compared to other Brazilian steakhouses, but the staff were always circulating, so no shortage of meat to eat! The price is a little high, but there are usually several coupons available to help reduce the cost. The price for a child is super cheap, but it's not the sort of restaurant where diners want to see and hear small children.

    This was our first dining experience at Texas de Brazil in San Antonio. Wasn't sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised with the food and service. I tried mostly everything in the salad bar area and loved every single thing. The Lobster Bisque soup was perfect. Our waiter, Jonathan was very attentive and helpful. He made sure we were well taken care of. Great overall experience.

    OUR FAMILY DINED HERE ON A FRIDAY NIGHT. WE WERE AMAZED AT THE SALAD/SOUP BAR, WHICH WAS FULL OF THE MOST AWESOME CHEESES AND A NICE VARIETY OF SALADS. THE LOBSTER BISQUE WAS OVER THE TOP WITH FLAVOR. THE ATMOSPHERE WAS PEACEFUL. WE REALLY ENJOYED ALL THE DIFFERENT MEATS AND THE WAY THEY WERE SERVED. THAT GAVE AN EXTRA "SOMETHING" TO THE FEELING OF BEING TREATED INDIVIDUALLY. ALSO, WE WERE GREATLY ENTERTAINED BY THE DISPLAY IN THE WINE COOLER BY THE FLYING GIRL. WE LEFT TOTALLY STUFFED BUT VERY IMPRESSED. THIS IS A MUST IF YOU'RE IN SAN ANTONIO.

    Overall we had a good experience. The food was excellent to see and eat, atmosphere was great and service was timely. We were there to celebrate a birthday and that guest felt treated. However, the main server's upselling was aggressive and clumsy, particularly regarding the wine. He pushed and pushed to sell a $60 bottle and when I finally insisted on what I wanted he appeared genuinely ticked off. I don’t know if there was a contest going or what but the wait staff should not act disappointed by a diner’s choice of wine. He gave a similar disappointed reaction when two people at the table went with the salad bar rather than the full meal (vegetarians, sorry). In the end I spent $250 on a meal for four and felt treated as cheap.

    My husband and I visited Texas de Brazil SA for his birthday celebration. We booked on open table, which was fast and easy, and even sent a reminder. Although we showed up 10 minutes late for our reservation, we were greeted with a friendly welcome and lead straight to our table. Our waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. The salad bar was amazing! I could have eaten that alone. We were greeted at the salad bar by a manager and asked if we has questions. She let me know about the delicious thinly sliced pineapple that was dusted with cinnamon and sugar. It was delicious. The meat options as always were ongoing and fresh. We also had a fabulous view of the wine selections and the skillful aerialist. We definitely will continue to visit

    Price is a steep, but quality of food and service are amazing. It's tough not to fill up on the salad bar --the variety and quality of food is truly top notch. The meat is served quick and is cooked to perfection! The only negative is that it was very loud, so it was tough to carry on a conversation at our table of 3.
