There was not a lot of choices of meats, and filet mignon was chewy, over all the experience was very good, but for two people and a couple mixed drinks was $166.00 not including tip. I do really see the value as I can still go to a nice restaurante and spend eat less.

Overpriced and bland. Great service though. Overall disappointing.

The wait staff that come by with the different types of meats were fantastic. They were very attentive. I was disappointed with waiter that was actually assigned to the table. At first I didn't think we could order cocktails at the table but I saw other tables ordering and receiving more cocktails throughout their dinner. My Martinis were about $30 for two and we could have easily had a couple more each. I would think having experience in restaurant management that one would want to add to the ticket to make overall total higher. It was disappointing that only drinks we were able to have were ones we ordered at the bar while we waited for our table. I also was interested in dessert and asked for a dessert menu. After waiting for 15-20 minutes and never asked if I chose a dessert, I decided to ask for my ticket and just get dessert and more drinks somewhere else.

I made a reservation several weeks ahead of time. We arrived and had to wait a few minutes, it was a busy night so should have been no issue. We were seated at what was obviously an extra table thrown up blocking a door. Our waiter took our drink order without providing a drink menu and disappeared for the rest of our meal.

We had to flag down a random waiter for another table to get a drink menu, we were never able to flag down someone to actually take the order.

We were done eating for about 20 minutes with the card set to “red” before a floor manager noticed and checked on us.

The food was decent but not good enough to overcome the atrocious service. We won’t be returning

Fogo was booked for the time slot we wanted so we choose Estancia and we were very glad we did. The food was amazing and the portion size was generous! We had a great dinner with friends and out son. We will be going back to Estancia the next time as well :)

We had a nice time. Just wish the sides would come a little faster. The meat, some very good cuts, kept coming, but the sides came later. Salad bar and service was good. Plus, they now have carafes for younger quality wine and filter if needed. Good evening.

Great food, everything was delicious! You do need to come very hungry to make it worth the cost though.

Very disappointed Overbooked understaffed one of the managers ran into a waitress and kept running further along while she held her stomach. It was complete chaos in there Food rarely made it to our table waiter couldn't understand when I asked him about meat choices check took 45 min to get to us after asking 3 times for it Never got our change back We ended up leaving Was suppose to be special event for our son Should've listened and went to the Brazilian steakhouse down town that was recommend from several people Well next time we know better

Great food ...don't fill up too much on the salad bar before trying all the different meats!

This place is always a treat for us, everything from the food to the staff is excellent. It’s incredible to see how busy it is and still remains calm as the staff dances around each other carrying swords of deliciousness. Our server was especially pleasant and my 6 year old definitely did not mind having her chair pulled out for her and being addressed as princess all night. By far one of my favorite dining experiences in the area.

The food alone is amazing and when you combine the service with the amazing meal you get quite the experience! I love love love Estancia and would recommend it to anybody who will listen. You won't be disappointed.

A little disappointed tonight. Two main issues...
1. Tables are way too close together, you’re basically dining with the people next to you.
2. Meat was under seasoned tonight, everything that came out was on the bland side.

Great place to get together with friends for a relaxing and enjoyable evening. Service and food far exceeds the competition!

Overall we had an excellent dinner at Estancia. The only scores less than 5 were due to certain cut of meat having little flavor, the filet was bland, and that even when our tokens were in red the servers tried to give us more food!.
It was a busy night and the service was still very prompt. The staff was hospitable and the “house specialty” was perfect.

Outstanding food and the service is 2nd to none. I’m sorry I don’t remember the servers name, but they provided the best service we’ve ever had at any restaurant.

Had reservations for Valentine’s dinner, expected a great dinner with intimate atmosphere and great service. Estancia didn’t fulfill any of my expectations... the restaurant was set up to make money only on Valentine’s night. They set the tables close together, it was like we were dining with the strangers next to us. There were so many tables that the service was next to none, we had to flag down any server we could find. The meats were great but because it was so busy we didn’t get to try everything we wanted, they would skip our table then be out of meat. Wish I would’ve reserved elsewhere, so I could’ve had a conversation without the table next to us being a part of it... this was the most unromantic Valentine’s date.

Fantastic service from absolutely everyone we experienced. They take waiting on you very seriously, you will not do a thing while you are here from pulling out your chair to picking up something that drops. Fantastic fantastic service. The food too was of course delightful. I also had their signature cocktail which was delightful. Could not recommend this restaurant more!

They seemed to have worked out their issues with Valentine's day reservations from a few years ago. We waited about fifteen minutes for our table, not too bad considering. The food was excellent and the service was good. You could tell the wait staff was a little rattled by the volume, I think they had extra tables on the floor. It was pretty well packed. Will definitely go back.

We were very disappointed with our experience during our special valentine's night out. We were seated stacked next to other couples, weren't given any drink options other than a wine list (even though others were drinking beer, mixed drinks), and the waiter never showed back up until after we were done dining.
