We weren't Brazilian Steak house experts the first few times coming here, but always enjoyed it. After trying one of the name brands in Dallas, this place really stands out. Not only are their prices better, the food is significantly better. The salad and warm bar was really good. The meats are all very high quality and cooked perfectly. The wine list was filled with very high quality options, and a few select bottles were priced at street value in the $60 range (one of our home favorites we got at a better deal than at total wine, that's never happened). But the true difference is the family owed style of service. It was later seating, but they frequently asked us if there was any specific types of meat we would like. When it wasn't readily available, they made it fresh for us without reservation (they surprised us with all of our favorites the entire night). We were celebrating our youngest daughters birthday (a true carnivore), and they treated her to her pick of any of the deserts on the house. You could really tell they wanted you to enjoy your meal. What a great night. We will be frequent guests!

Not as many traditional Brazilian sides as some others we’ve eaten at. Felt like it was just a salad bar. Meat was good. Service was excellent though. Wine menu excellent.

Lots of reviews that suggest service is lacking. Service was OK but not fantastic. For example I noted this was a special event. Not only did we not receive the 'birthday' dessert promised, but we were not offered any dessert. We actually wanted to purchase it to go. Interestingly, as we were leaving we saw a couple of really good looking desserts go by to another table, so clearly they have them. We also waited for our bill for a good 30 minutes after we finished coffee.
However the food was excellent and made up for the lack of attentive service. It was a Saturday night so it was quite busy and the meat was coming out of the back with great regularity. The meat to me was as good as all the other Brazilian steakhouses. It was moist and tender and very flavorful. The salad bar was also very good - but I try to save my stomach for the real star, the meat.
It's a shame that they can't seem to fix the wait staff.
I will go back again, because the food was good, and compared to other Brazilian steakhouses, it is less noisy so you can actually talk at dinner.

I have been to many types of these places and never had an issue. I was disappointed with the quality of meat. Most of the meat brought out was super dry and cooked way past well done. The service was fantastic. I wished the food matched the quality of service that I received.

This is our 4th time visiting Carvao and 3rd anniversary that has been celebrated at this location. This was visit was significantly different than the last 3 visits. Generally, there is a constant stream of meat flowing throughout the restaurant. This time we were waiting 5-10 mins in between rounds. We ultimately had to ask the manager if there was a problem and he ended up going to the kitchen and started serving the guests. We saw others with a puzzled look on their face as to the service.

As usual the food that was received was good but in this visit we mostly left hungry, and after spending $150, that should not be the case.

A very nice evening celebrating events in our lives for which we are grateful. We had great food and enjoyed the salad bar, sides, good drinks, good service. In particular I think a little more ambiance would be nice. No music was playing when we arrived but it came on later. It wouldn’t seem to be too hard to add some candle light or some fresh flowers. Seems small. For the price of the meal if they would present the deserts on a dessert tray seems like it would be more appealing- but since we didn’t see any - it was easy to pass up. Over all we like coming here for special occasions and think the prices for the food and service are generally in line with our expectations.

Food was good. Service was not that great. It was Christmas Eve, so they may have just been overwhelmed. In the past, they have had Lobster bisque soup, however, this night it was Carrot soup. It was still good, just went in expecting Lobster bisque.

I usually go to another Brazilian steakhouse, but thought I'd try this on a Monday evening. It was quiet, but it was Monday. But the food and the service were both excellent. The quality of the meat was really good and the salad bar and carrot soup were also very good. Although it's more expensive than my usual, I will definitely be going back again, but probably only for special occasions.

Thought I give them another chance. I made a reservation at 5pm for 6:30pm. I arrived to find a young girl leaning on the reception counter with her chin in her hand. She looked up said nothing. I replied with Hi, I’m here I have a reservation. She stands up looks at me as if it didn’t matter looked into the restaurant which was full, looked at the bar area where people were waiting well it will be about 30-45 minutes “I guess”.. I said but I just made a reservation, she said it will be about 30-45 min. She could care less! Never mind I said we will find something else. She leaned down on the reception desk and put her chin in her hand. We left the restaurant the way we found it.

Don’t bother giving them your hard earned money, goes somewhere that appreciates it. Honestly if she had shown a single sign of concern or care I would understand a mistake.

Our meals were very good. Did not seem as good as previous visits however. Not as much meat circulating, I had several cuts that were just flat out over done. Still a very nice meal, just seems to have been downgraded a bit. Wanted to try some of the smoked salmon at the salad bar, no serving utensils were out to use there, but that was a minor issue.

The service was impeccable. I was so impressed that the staff offered to make a special soup for my 5 year old because they over-heard us talking about how much he had enjoyed it the last time (even though it wasn’t on the menu this night). I really appreciate that they didn’t care who we were or that I had children with me at a fine restaurant, but still treated us respectfully and were very attentive throughout our meal.

We went on a Saturday night to celebrate sons Birthday. It was so wonderful we went the very next saturday for my wife's Birthday. Both times the experience was awesome. Very good salad bar with more than plentiful options for all tastes (the smoked salmon was extraordinary) All the meats presented were delicious and the management and servers go out of their way to make sure you have your selection exactly as you want it - rare, medium, well, etc. If they don't have it immediately available, your choice is generally only a few minutes away from being prepared. Owner introduced himself and took time out to visit and make sure everything was to our satisfaction. We will be returning soon !
