    anniversary
    Dined on 9/14/2014
    Our first and last visit. We went there thinking that it was a lot like Fogo de Chao (another Brazilian buffet restaurant) so we decided to spend our Anniversary there. It was very different and the quality was just not there. Definitely not worth it for $45/person. The meat was so salty (pretty much all of it) that we had to rush home and drink several glasses of water all night long. In addition, we were surprised that they barely acknowledged our anniversary even when the host asked if we were celebrating a special occasion and we mentioned it to her. Wow....bad marketing. What a bad choice!

    The food as always is simply delicious, supreme and amazing, never could I ever complain about that in this restaurant, it's everything I like, want and even more so and all the portions are vast and generous; the drinks are extremely tasty and there's a big variety for every taste out there. The service was very poor, our drinks took a long time to get to us and they brought me the wrong one because our server didn't hear and even went as far as asking "Is that on the menu or something?", he dropped one of our plates and the shards hit me on the leg... A big mess up, especially considering he only has to ensure we get our drinks, since the gauchos do the rest. The only reason I didn't complain was because of the food, seriously.

    Dined on 9/12/2014
    I found this restaurant to be too open and too loud for my taste. The meal was way over priced for the quality of meat presented. Cheap meat brought out at first, then more expensive and more tender cuts after we were full of the tough, overly salted cheap cuts of meat. Salad bar was limited though it appeared to be large at first glance. Waitress was very attentive, though, and took great care of our table. Her accent made it very difficult to understand. The loud noise in the restaurant made it impossible for the 2 gentlemen in our party to hear anything, since they both have a hearing loss and the acoustics were impossible. I would not recommend to my circle of friends. The bill was very high for the quality. I won't be back.

    I have been to several Texas de Brazil resturants in the past. Schaumburg Illinois-twice. Las Vegas, Batton Rouge, Orlando and the Tampa location every year for the past five years. In all locations the service and food were always outstanding. I always warn the uninformed to use caution at the salad bar. It's all too easy to eat way too much salad, cutting down on available space for the excellent, non stop, meat train. Already booked for another vacation in the Tampa area next year.

    Prefer this place to all others in the chain. It is smaller then some of the others and more natural light enters the room. Have never had a bad experience at any Texas de Brazil . This one is just a notch above the others and gets the meat just the way you like it. The lamb is excellent for those who like lamb! And cheese selection is very good for those who enjoy it.

    This was our first time visiting Texas de Brazil, though we have enjoyed Brazilian steakhouse dining in other locations. We were celebrating a special, small family gathering (which I noted on our reservation and told our hostess) and were seated in their small side dining area along with a very large group of "energetic" men. Though the service and food were excellent our family gathering was not enjoyed because the very loud environment didn't allow for table conversation and explanations of food being served. We did ask for another seating, due to the occasion, but never received any response back to our request.

    Very nice decorations but terrible ambiance and acoustics. Not for a romantic occasion, better for a group of people who don't mind yelling over each other to match the noise level of the restaurant. Also lighting was very dark (also was dining at night), making it hard to see the meats and their color. Food tasted great, but no as large a variety of meats as I hoped.

    seated at a very small table next to a window,which normally would be wonderful,but not when the window shade was broken and we were shoved right up against it, so close that our shoulders touched it. When I asked that it be lifted so we could at least look outside, was just told by server that 'it is broken' Then why seat anyone at that table at all?? plenty of other empty tables all around us.The filet on the 'sword' was very good, too bad we could only get one small 'morsel' of that meat, plenty of offers for the 'flank steak' & other lesser cuts of meat,should probably have had more filet guys running around, never saw him at our table again. Ran out of mashed potato's, never offered more until we were done eating. Server was pleasant

    First time to TdB, and I was AMAZED with the service, right from the start! It had rained earlier that afternoon, and the outside deck was empty of guests, and tables were stored. Even after being seated inside, our waiter catered to our desires, and sat us outside. It made for a very romantic evening, as we were the only guests to eat outside while we were there. The quality and flavors and VARIETY of the meats were the best I'd ever had, and they just kept coming to our table almost non-stop when we requested. The salad bar was huge, with so much good food; I could see myself going there for dinner to eat only the salad bar. They also had a great drinks list! TdB was the best dinner I've had in years, hands down!

    The staff were very kind and professional, but the food was just....meh. Our waiter asked us if we were fine with medium rare meat, we said yes. Well all the meat that came out proceeded to be "medium well" to "shoe leather". The guys cutting the meat were even calling it medium rare. Finally our waiter noticed that we weren't really eating the meat that was put on our plates and he asked if there was a problem. We told him and he immediately fixed the problem. The price for two people was almost $100...for that price I expected the meat to be right the first 3 times.

    If you LOVE and appreciate a great salad bar, wonderful service and fresh, delicious, HOT food, then Texas de Brazil is the place for you! The staff is spot on, keeping your water glass filled to the brim and bringing out an incredible variety if sizzling hot meats to tempt you. But be careful, your eyes can be bigger than your stomach! The salad bar is the freshest in town, with an unusual variety of items that you don't find anywhere else. Things like fresh mozzarella, tiny muffins, shaved cheeses, capers, peeled shrimp, cous-cous with cranberries, fresh asparagus, black beans and rice, lobster bisque, and much more! In addition, they bring a basket of incredible little round rolls to your table and mouth-watering mashed potatoes!

    Had a reservation- ordered two cocktails (for $20) before seated about 8-10 minutes after arrival. Seated in an expansion/banquet room off the to the side & felt completely isolated from the fun. The salad bar was amazing - everything was delicious. We were served warm side dishes before we finished our salads. When ready for meat, we turned our card to green, expecting a swarm of servers with swords, but the servers kept walking past the banquet room. We complained and finally got the swarm we expected. We ate so much, it hurt. I recommend sitting in the usual area for the full experience. This is a place for special occasions due to the price and huge quantity of food. We want to go back and try only the salad bar for lunch.
