Pricey! 6 of us dined and it was $450.00 and only two were drinking. Since there are no prices, no idea what the per person amount was. Salad bar wasn’t as expected. Wait staff was phenomenal and best martini in the area.

MY ONLY PROBLEM WAS HAVING A RESERVATION AND IT DID NO GOOD.. THEY SEATED PEOPLE WHO CAME IN AFTER ME, BEFORE THEY SEATED ME....THE GIRL AT THE DESK TOLD EVERYONE THE SAME THING, " IT'LL BE A LITTLE WHILE AND WE'LL CALL YOU WHEN A TABLE IS READY.. " THE WHOLE TIME SHE SOUNDED LIKE ROBOT, NO SMILE, NO "I'M SORRY WE CAN'T HONOR YOUR RESERVATION"..NOTHING.. THEY SHOULD ALSO MOVE THE GUEST WAITING BENCH AWAY FROM THE DOOR AS TO NOT BE SO COLD WHENEVER THE DOOR OPENS..MOVE THE DESK TO THAT SIDE AND PLUG IN A HEATER...TRY TO MAKE THE GUESTS CONFORTABLE....

Service was overall great! Everyone was quick and attentive- the only thing we waited more than a minute for was the check. They were busy it being New Years so even that wasn’t a big deal. The only thing that wasn’t outstanding was the fact we were seated near the door- the overwhelming number of people waiting for tables were just staring at us eating and the frigid air kept blowing on us from the door.

The food was fantastic. I especially enjoyed the salad bar with its many choices. Salad bar is the wrong description, as it should be called "food bar", as it has so many choices that aren't even related to having a salad (e.g., smoke salmon, hot mashed potatoes, hot gravy with mushrooms, sweet potato souffle, smoked/prepared meats). We celebrated a birthday for 3 people at our table, and was served complimentary creme brulee.

It took a bit longer than expected to get our bill, and then it had a couple of mistakes (or misinterpretations), which they eagerly attempted to correct, but returned the revised bill for much less than the bill should have been. So, I got impatient and rather than return the bill for another revision, I gave a very large tip to compensate.

My son makes me take him at least every month. The meats are always perfect and their service is fantastic, as they always go out of their way to take care of us and ensure we get enough of everything we want.

The wine list is great and the deserts are wonderful too...if you have any room left!!

Food is great! Place could use more Brazilian decoration to make it more cozier. Lighting is good, ‘cause it gives the cozyness. Service is awesome, very friendly staffs!

Absolutely love this restaurant and so glad it’s in Flower Mound! We lived in Brazil and this food is authentic. The salad bar has many fresh and tasty options and the hot bar always has great Brazilian dishes. Just be sure to leave room for the melt-in-your-mouth meats they bring right to your table! The owners and staff are so attentive, it feels like an event. The price is steep but they make sure you leave satisfied with great food and great service.

We love our Brazilian steak houses. Some are better than others. The food was quite possibly the best we have had. The service was perfect. The price tag is high, but worth every penny. There was a shortness of staff, but we were never without. There is only one place to rival our friends here. I won't name them, but Flower Mound and Grapevine are the best of the best.

The complimentary valet and parking area were nice. We were seated immediately and the server got our drinks. Salad bar is comparable to other Brazilian steakhouses but there were no sun dried tomatoes and I did not see chimichurri. Service was fast though they stopped bringing meats to our table even though the card was green. I guess I got cut off...embarrassing.

It was just OK. The service was great but the food was just OK. The atmosphere is much better at other Brazilian restaurants. We won’t go back just because I would rather spend $130+ on a better meal. We can check it off the list

We had high hopes for this place as we are big fans of Brazilian Steakhouses. Unfortunately a small wine list and less-than-stellar salad bar caught us off guard. The selection of meats was smaller than we expected also. The house picanha was pretty good, the lamb chops were a mix of good and overcooked and the parmesan pork was overdone. My wife had some of the same as well as the filet which was cooked well, the bacon wrapped chicken was a bit dry and the bottom sirloin was mediocre. What made up for the food was the service. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well as attentive but not overbearing. It's not a bad place at all, just not up to par with Texas de Brazil, Fogo de Chao, Rafain's, Boi Na Braza etc. And for the same price, I'd expect it to be.

As always, Carvao was great. We went for my wife's birthday and had large table for six of us. Service was attentive and prompt. The salad bar had great selections, and it seems like they might be starting to rotate some of their items, which is a great thing.

We love this place! The service is always excellent. There are plenty of food choices from pure vegetarian to a meat lover's delight! The meat is served at your table, is always hot and the service is outstanding!

They recently did away with their Brazil bites (soft warm cheese rolls) and replaced them with some other sort of doughy roll that's not as great but that's a minor item compared to all of the other great things about this restaurant. We've been there many times and will come back many more in the future.

If you're looking for a great place to eat, this is it!

Awesome food and service. Food cuts were perfect and everything from rare to well done. If you haven't/didn't enjoyed your food, service, and dining experience at carvao then you have a serious eating out issue. Informed them of our anniversary dinner prior to and they surprised us with a special dessert. Thank you carvao for a petfect anniversary! My wife and I will be coming back monthly if not more. Again thanks for a special night!
