  • Always fantastic in every way!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    We have been here serveal times, and always, it is wonderful in every way. The hosts are very personable and friendly. The table servers are more than accomodating, including the different desired levels of wellness in our meat at our table. From the beautiful fresh veggies, fruits, seafood and cheese, to the bisque and side dishes, the buffet area offers a lovely variety of unique and delicious choices. Then, when you flip your card to green and the servers being coming around with the many wonderful meat choices, always fresh and perfectly seasoned, prepare yourself for a carnivore's dream. This is a wonderful experience from the moment you walk in, to the very last minute, when you mournfully say "I can't eat another bite".

    Everything was outstanding, although one in the party was a vegetarian so was limited to vegetables, cheese and potatoes. A pasta or vegetarian bean item would have made it so much better.

    Dined on 9/12/2014
    The food was perfect and our server was the ultimate professional. I have recently had back surgery so the wooden chairs were not a good option for me. Our server took GREAT care to find a suitable chair. The meal price is high, but we went in knowing this and because it was my husbands birthday I didn't mind. That being said, the meal was WELL worth the price. I do have one minor complaint. In the comment section for my online reservation I had asked for special birthday dessert for my husband and nothing was done. Our server did ask if we wanted dessert or coffee and we declined because I thought my reservation request was being honored in secret and they would bring something out. Oh well, dinner was still memorable.

  • A little pricy for what you get
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    For the amount of food the price was a little steep. The servers were there consistanty for the 1st 20 min, then seem to disappear almost like they were saying thats it your done. i had my card on the green side for 15 minutes and not one waiter stopped at the table. So at that point we called it quits and left. Because of the price we probably will only go again for our anniversary. The rib meat and pork were the best.

    The food is very good. Outstanding food. The only draw back is the price. It's 45$ for the meal, then they add on everything else . Making it very expensive . So you can only go on special occasions. Which is really frustrating, because it is extreamly delicious.

    We went to this location about a year ago and were very pleased with the quality of meat offered. This visit we just didn't find the quality to be of the same calibur. The waitress did a wonderful job of sending over the carvers to our table, they didn't come until she really started sending them. This was not the case at our last visit, as soon as we flipped the card over to green the carvers began coming to our table.

  • Good time but must take food as is
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    The restaurant us very good and I'd go back but 2 big warnings based on my times there. Aim for a prime time to be there well before closing as we went later one time and were not getting prime choices of the 15 different options we had the first time and were being offered the same scraps over and over. My big gripe is I like a medium to medium well cut of meat and despite the staff asking how we like our food we were being offered the same MR to rare meat as everyone else. I did not eat some of the cuts I was given because until it was on my plate I couldn't tell how rare the food is. I have asked in the past about the individual cuts getting extra time and then have a random filet pulled off the stick and told that's a medium for me

    It is pretty expensive, but the outstanding quality of food, professional service, and beautiful atmosphere make it worth it for any special night out. I espeically loved the fillet and the house sirloin cuts, they are amazing. The marinated mushrooms and the spicy shrimp on the salad bar are a favorite of ours as well.

    Be prepared for something entirely different. Service was great, but they need to take their time and clearly explain what's in store. Especially, for the new patrons. This was a nice, new experience. A true meat lovers paradise. However, Parmesan did not taste right with the pork or chicken. That salad bar is something else; like something you'd find on vaca, someplace kind of exotic. Gauchos serving from the meat "spears" was quite different. Atmosphere was pretty cool. It's a nice treat, but not on a weekly OR monthly basis. All that being said, I'd like to do it again, sometime. Be prepared to spend, because you will.

    I have dined here several times since it opened and love it I have never experienced any issues and love the fact that they ask how you want your meat served the "salad bar" offers a variety of things but it is a meat eaters paradise. After you have visited a few times you can narrow down your meat choices and just elect to eat your favorites. They do not rush you at all so you can savor the experience and wait a while before finishing your meal off with one of their great desserts.

    chicken
    Dined on 8/21/2014
    I've been to a few other Brazilian steak houses in the past. They are exactly that; steak houses. I didn't see my first piece of beef from Texas de brazil until I had been asked repeatedly if I wanted chicken, pork and sausage. They waited until my party and I were almost completely full to send out the filet, which was very over cooked and we only saw it twice. The salad bar had a nice variety and the ranch dressing was A++. Overall, I was very disappointed. The steak was par at best, the chicken was dry and the sausage tasted like Jimmy Dean. For $50, go to a local steak house and get a real filet or porterhouse.

    The ambiance and experience overall was amazing. Definitely try the chimichurri sauce at the salad bar area, which is fantastic with bread and any of the meats. The hostesses were amazing with regards to the birthday and anniversary in our group, and our server was amazingly attentive and friendly. Definitely try the garlic sirloin, bacon wrapped chicken, and bacon wrapped filet minon! And don't forget to try the fried bananas- they're delicious!

    Very classy, from the initial greeting by a classy and friendly hostess (Miranda) to the entire dining experience that was guided by an OUTSTANDING server (Lydia). Salad bar was extensive and the meats (served at the table by the gauchos) were absolutely scrumptious and perfectly prepared and presented. Lydia was extremely attentive without seeming to be hovering and she seemed committed to making our experience pleasurable. just a very classy place and a thoroughly pleasurable dining experience.

    The service was very attentive but there was way too much food, too fast. Hardly had a chance to try the meat just served when another "gaucho" arrived and served more meat. You could always say, "No." I'd rather spend the money on one nice filet mignon than on all these different meats. This is not my style. It's a buffet in reverse where the food comes to you.

    Brazilian steakhouses are a unique dining experience and Texas de Brazil hit the mark! The salad bar had a fantastically fresh variety of items presented enticingly. The meat was all cooled to a beautiful medium rare abd the rock salt gave it the perfect seasoning! The only part of the experience we did not enjoy was the disclaimer about how you can have your servers alter the meat temperature and seasoning. While I understand personal tastes differ, sometimes you have to surrender yourself to the experience to enjoy it.

    I was underwhelmed. Meat was well seasoned, but a lot of it arrived way overcooked. Salad bar was fine, though the sushi section could have used something other than a dry looking crab roll. Chimuchurri sauce was rather bland. Desserts (not included the price of dinner) ranged from inedible (the citrus creme brulee) to ordinary (carrot cake), and were grossly overpriced. It was OK, but I don't think I'll be back.
