                              Always a great experience. One of my favorite meals in the Denton area. We go every New Year's Eve on our wedding anniversary and the service is always top notch. Thanks again.

                              We were so disappointed! The cut of meat for the bacon wrapped filet was unlike any I've experienced (and not in a good way) as it was tough, grisly and dry and everything was so incredibly salty that it was really inedible. The salad bar was uninspiring and even the cocktails weren't up to par. While the wait staff were friendly, the service was really slow. We won't be going back.

                              Food was exceptional as always. I assume due to the large Christmas Eve crowd service wasn't as great as usual. But overall we enjoyed our dinner.

                              This place was a rip off. The money we spent, was not worth what we ate. The sides selections were nothing to talk about, very limited. Also, some stuff on the menu have been ran out of. Asked for certain beers, and ran out of those too. Overall this place was horrible. Definitely don’t recommend and for sure ain’t coming back here again. Horrible service and way too over priced for limited food.

                              Went for anniversary and all of the servers were so kind and the food was amazing... Definitely ate our moneys worth. Although we didn’t use it (plenty of parking), the complimentary valet was nice to know for future visits.

                              We’ve been to Carvao many times. It seemed to be quite busy for a Sunday night. And the attentiveness of the servers and gauchos tends to be fantastic. But on this particular visit our server would disappear for 10-15 minutes at a time. For example, at the start of the meal we had to ask another server for polenta because we couldn’t find ours. Then at the end, we asked to see the dessert menu and he acknowledged and left. 15 minutes later we gave up and when the manager came by we asked for the check. We also asked if they were short staffed and the manager said no. There were other times when there were no gauchos out on the floor at all distributing the various meats. Usually we can’t turn them away fast enough. I hope our next experience is better.

                              The only that really stood out that salad bar wasn’t refreshed when we were getting our salads & the gravy was bit salty. Beside that it was wonderful experience.

                              The price, location, ambiance, and food all blend together to make this place an excellent choice for a meal. It’s even more fun to have 4 or more in your party. It lends itself for eating and talking and laughing all at the same time. A great place for a get together.

                              The quality of the meat is not very good, the attention is regular and the desserts had nothing special. for the same or even less value, you can find a steak house of better quality

                              Salad bar is great! But, the all the meats were over cooked and dry, with the exception of the fillet and sausage.

                              Been on several occasions, always very pleasant experience overall. The service this time was lacking. Was busier than normal. But an obvious annoyance was the service. Being a Brazilian steakhouse, there were many servers. Some were better than others. Overall, I’d recommend, but the service this time was a bit lacking.

                              My family has frequented this establishment numerous times and have always had a very good meal and good service. This last visit will be just that - our last visit. We received atrocious service. We had empty water glasses for almost the entire meal. We requested cheese bread (Pao de Queijo) four times from whoever we could flag down - and never received it. We never had an opportunity to order a second round of drinks. We finally Went to the hostess stand and ask for the manager. The manager listen to our complaint and tried to make things better by getting us some of the items we said we have been waiting for. But he never apologized for the poor service. He never had the waiter ever come back to our table. And in the end he did not comp anything or even sending over a dessert on the house. I am not one to look for free items, but there was simply no effort to try to salvage the horrible experience. I used to recommend this restaurant for those in the area or even within driving distance. However now I will recommend that people, even if they live within a mile from the restaurant, spend the gas money wisely and drive to a different restaurant.

                              One of the poorest experiences in dining, certainly for Brazilian. Water glass sat empty for the entire meal, meat was mostly well done and charred, only half the meats advertised available. The time before was ok not great just thought it was an off night, however this experience definitely proves they have lost their touch and will not be returning.

                              Fantastic service. To us, the thing that make the restaurant so nice apart from the food is the kind and attentive owner! Quality starts from the top and he shows it in every visit!

                              Go to Fogo de Chao or Texas de Brazil instead. Much better service and selection for same (or cheaper) price.

                              I personally though my experience was just ok. Most of the meat served was to rare for my taste. They presented at the beginning of the meal we would have 15 different meat options, but we did not see 15. I am not sure we will go again.

                              Tiny cuts and sometimes long delays. Not much variety in meats. One soup, carrot that I didn't like. Gaucho difficult to understand when asked what the meat was, and when it was obvious I didn't understand he made no further attempt to explain. Chicken was bad. $3.25 for 12 oz bottled soft drink with no free refills seals the deal that I won't be going back.

                              When we first arrived the waitress said there was an option of salad bar only. My Wife asked how much was that? The first waitress said I think its 15 and the next waitress goes no no I think it's more than that. We never did get a straight answer. Next started at the salad bar then waited for the meat, and waited and waited and waited and waited some more. Oh and yes we had our cards in green. When they did come out with the meats it was slow at best. Just a disappointing visit when your goin to spend 120 or more for 2 people.

                              This place was delicious! Our favorites were the bacon salad, polenta, and prime cut beef. It was our anniversary and they treated us to a complimentary creme brûlée that was absolutely amazing! We will definitely be coming back!

                              The food and drinks were wonderful but this was hands down one of the worst service experiences I’ve ever had. I am a very patient person having spent seven years in the service industry, but by the end of the night I had lost all patience. The waiter could not get anything correct and it took him around 30 mins to get our checks printed correctly. We then had to take them to a manager to get our cards ran and get out the door. I would have prob been able to overlook the issue, had he picked up a pen and wrote stuff down like several of us recommended several times. Instead, he made a circus show out of it and then blamed the cashier stating “I’m sorry this is so messed up. If we had an American cashier who could understand what I’m telling her then this wouldn’t be happening” The blame game is childish and not one time did a manager approach or try and help. I would return bc the food was awesome and try to see if this was just a onetime thing with horrible service.
