    Every facet of our dinner was EXCEPTIONAL. Our server Howie and the entire staff to include the Manager was right there to take care of our every need. They couldn't do enough for us. My favorite meat was the filet. Done to perfection. If you left not full it was your own fault. A COMPLETE dining experience! There were three of us and EVERYONE was well pleased.

    My family of 3 went to Texas de Brazil in Syracuse for a special meal to close out a busy day in Syracuse. We had reservations and would recommend it if you are eating there on a weekend. We had never been to a Brazilian Steakhouse so we were not sure what to expect. We asked a lot of questions to our servers and they were very helpful. The salad bar and hot options were very tasty. The meats were also very good, of course, there were some we liked more than others. We are big lamb fans and did not like the sausage. You need to pace yourself so that you can try different things and still have room for some more of your favorites.

    This is nice for a change of pace. We have been to several different Brazilian Steak House restaurants. The Texas de Brazil chain is not on the top of my list, but still very nice. At $45 per person plus drinks and desert, it can add up quickly. The cheapest bottle of wine was $36, and most were much higher. If you sign upm to receive their coupons, you can at least $10, but only on a weekday. Our Server, Judy, was excellent, the food was pretty good, but not exceptional. There was so much noise we had a difficult time hearing the servers. I would go back, but not in a rush to.

    Food was outstanding, always a great experience. Very impressed with the service. One person in our group didn't want the rock salt added to the meat and they cooked his food separately. Even the manager came over and obviously was aware of the special request. I like to be able to have conversation while eating, but the noise level made that difficult. Maybe it was the acustics of the room.

    The 16th anniversary special seduced us back to Texas de Brazil. We went to enjoy a bunch of meat and weren't disappointed. Tried most of the beef items, pork, chicken and lamb chops. The "salad bar" which is way more than just salad is excellent. When you go back for seconds instead of just diving into the meat, you know it is pretty good. The one item that does not do well with the open fire cooking they do is pork ribs - they need to be slow cooked all day so that the meat falls off the bone. We found the table a little small and the service could have been a little more attentive, but overall we had a great time.

    My wife and I finally got to have a getaway without the kids and when we were in Syracuse decided to eat at this restaurant. A little over priced (Similar restaurants in Ottawa are only $35) which is about $10 cheaper. My wife and I asked for our meats to be medium to medium well (without blood) and it took them about 30min to get that right and when they did, it was med-rare on the inside and charred on the out. I have been to many steakhouses and medium to med-well can be cooked without burning. Anyways, it was not a pleasant experience for what we paid for our food!

    I don't like buffets as there is too much food to eat. The salad bar was fresh and good. The meats were tough and I thought I was going to choke on many bites. Bone in chicken was surprising....boneless would have been much better for the price. I don't think I will return.

    On a recent Saturday night our party of four went to our Syracuse Texas de Brazil to celebrate our friend's birthday. We were immediately greeted at the door and taken to our table in less than 2 minutes. Our waiter, Sean, was professional, courteous, and very helpful. He was always within a few steps away and made sure that we had everything that we needed. He remembered what meats was each guests favorites and made sure that the guachos made return trips. We capped off the evening's celebration with excellent desserts and will definitely be back again!!!! I would highly recommend Texas de Brazil to all my business associates. I always bring my business clients out to dinner when they come to visit my plant!

    We went recently (party of four) to celebrate our son's birthday on a Saturday night. If you sign up for special deals they send a $25 off coupon to use as a gift however the coupon is not good on Saturdays. Unfortunately my husband works out of town so Saturday was the only day that we could go. One of the people in our party was a vegetarian so she just ordered the salad bar, and the rest of us ordered the dinners. Besides dinner, we ordered 2 cocktails, 2 cups of coffee, and 3 dessert (one of which was on the house for my son's birthday since they wouldn't let us use the birthday coupon). The total check with tax and tip was $270. The meats were under-seasoned and the salad bar was just ok. We won't be going there again.

    Eating at Texas de Brazil was quite the experience! You should definitely come hungry - you will leave stuffed! The system they have is wonderful in giving you time and a break from the meats coming to your table. Somehow, we never go the same cut of meat twice - I have no idea how they kept track of that! Over-all a very good experience.

    This place is amazing if you are willing to eat a lot of meat and pay for it. One set price in my mind kind of high but if you aren't a vegetarian and are hungry you get what you pay for. Service was to notch. Good was hot and seasoned perfectly. The decorations and furniture complete the experience. I would recommend to all that have a little extra to spend too check it out. Happy dining :)

    This was a great dining experience. The food was delicious and the service was great. The salad area was more than ample enough to make an entire meal of it. The cheese rolls were amazing AND gluten free! All of the meat were very good. The price is not a bargain, but considering what you get and the number of employees necessitated by this style of serving, it really isn't that bad. It is definitely a place for special occasions, rather than somewhere I would go regularly, but I sure we will be back at some point. It was quite noisy, so this is not a good place for anyone with hearing impairment.

    We celebrated three birthdays on our visit,including my daughter`s who cannot eat meat due to a medical condition. She was thrilled with the salad bar where she found many items she enjoys plus some new thngs to try. Everyone else was pleased with their meals and we enjoyed our dinners and dessert. The only problem we encountered was the noise level. The acoustics made it very difficult to carry on a conversation with a group of people. My husband and I have dined there together and had no problem visiting.

    The food was amazing, I was so surprised with our salad bar options alone! I took my boyfriend here for his birthday hoping we'd have a romantic, quiet dinner and we did just that. The hostess sat us in a more private area and our server, Sam, was phenomenal. She was very friendly and personable. She knew everything there is to know about the food and even offered to make us a plate of the sides so we wouldn't have to get up, and especially so we wouldn't fill up on the delicious meat before getting to try anything else! She made my boyfriend a beautiful dessert by decorating the plate with different syrups and writing "Happy Birthday" on it. It really was a great experience and we can't wait to go back.

    The staff at Texas de Brazil is excellent. Our server, Sean was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. One of our guests is gluten free. Sean took the time to escort him around the buffet and note which items were gluten free. At dessert time, he even remarked on which desserts were gluten free without us having to ask. The meats were all cooked perfectly (except the bacon wrapped filet, that was overcooked) and the variety on the buffet of cold and hot salads and sides was great. A little pricey for family or regular visits, but for an occasional adult night out, it was perfect.

    Hi, TDB is a really good restaurant with an outstanding Salad Bar, (As good as you will find in upstate NY) and the variety meat preparations will certainly allow anyone to find there preference. From chicken, to lamb to beef. I would point out, the meat starts coming at you in waves and as a result, any table conversation is interrupted. I would not recommend TDB as a place to conduct business conversations even though it is quite upscale. The servers come so frequently most conversations must start over Well done TDB!

    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".

    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.

    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.
