Brazilian Steakhouse
Perfect For:
  • Good for Anniversaries
  • Good for a Date
  • Special Occasion
Avenida Brazil stays true to the foundations of the traditional Brazilian churrascaria. We offer a world class upscale dining experience with several of the finest cut meats, amazing side dishes, desserts and a full bar that includes red & white wines from across the globe.

The experience is split up into two parts

Part 1: Salad Bar - After being seated, guests can help themselves to our gourmet salad bar stocked with more than 30 fresh items.

Part 2: Meat - At each of our seats, we include a coaster with a red side and a green side. Once back at their table, guests can start signaling our gauchos (meat servers) by flipping over the coaster to the red side. This indicates that the guest is ready to enjoy the 13+ succulent meats, which include lamb, beef, chicken, and fish. As an accent to the meat, we provide five delicious side dishes.

We had a reservation for brunch and were seated immediately. Food was great with plenty of items to choose from. But my biggest complaints have to do with the staff. My wife ordered a veggie omelette and it had ham in it. Whoops, so she went back up and told her about the mistake. The chef apologized and offered to make another omelette so my wife agreed. This one came out the same way, with ham!!! Lol. Now don't get me wrong, the first one was delicious (since I love meat I offered to eat it) and I'm sure the second was too (I was full by then so it went uneaten), but really twice!!! Wow! Also, ordered a cup of hot tea and asked for some honey. Our waiter grabbed a box and allowed me to pick from an assortment of tea packets. However, after some time and a reminder about the forgotten honey he returned with a small bowl with what turned out to be syrup in it. What!?! Never offered an explanation or even said anything about it. So needless to say the wife and I were pretty disappointed in our first and probably last dining experience here. Like I said though, food was great but the issues we had you would expect to have at a lower end dine in restaurant; certainly not at a place like this.

This was a birthday celebration and our group of 8 was treated very well. It was a quiet night and the restaurant was not very full, but that was just as well - it gave our rather large group the ability to talk and hear each other. The waitstaff was great and our waiter (Jose) was very good.

As it was my wife's birthday and I had alerted them in advance - they had prepared a very nice desert. She was very impressed (see attached ) - a nice touch.

This restaurant is located in a small strip-mall and does not look like much from the outside but do not judge a book by its cover. Once inside, the restaurant is quite elegant. We will return in the future.

If I had any complaint I would ask that the servers mind the Red/Green serving indicators. Several times I had a full plate, had turned my color to Red - but still had servers asking me if I wanted more.

They recently opened in a location that previously had a similar concept that was struggling with quality.

This is a different owner/establishment and is absolutely great and shouldn't be confused with the former tenant.

Terrible choice for Valentine’s Day! They rented wobbly tables that were not fit for one person , much less two. The food was sparse and not befitting of a true Brazilian steakhouse. We had to wait for the same three meats to come around for an hour. The service was terrible. The water was sarcastic and rude. We had to continue to ask for water and the initial course was brought as we were receiving our desserts, which seemed to be purchased at a warehouse food club. Total disappointment!

Some of the best cuts of meat I've ever had. Avenida is not cheap, but you get a wonderful and unique experience (and LOTS of delicious food).

The salad bar impressed me right away, with a huge selection of lighter fare (though not much salad, amusingly). On to the main course, where you're bombarded by filet mignon and steak and ribs and various bacon-wrapped fare. It's a little overwhelming. But after every new selection I was saying "wow" out loud.

You have a kind of rotating group of servers, which means you sometimes get asked the same question a few different times. But it also means you get timely drink refills and lots of opportunities to make requests.

We'll definitely be back on our next big occasion.

My husband and I decided to try something new for date-night - and THIS was SO worth it. Our waiter (Montgomery) certainly helped make this a date night to remember! He made us feel as if we were the only couple in the room and that he was there simply for US! Truly a fun and exciting adventure, not to mention the awesome food! I would certainly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for something a little different and fun - especially for a date.

Food is basically ok but seasoning on meats is inconsistent. Lobster bisque however was outstanding. Overall, not in the same league as bigger Brazilian steakhouse down the road and therefore not a good value for the price. Restaurant ambience is average and nothing special. Didn't hate the experience but won't go back.

This was the first time I had Brazilian and I loved it. We were looking for something nice for NYE without the big price tag and without all of the noise. We found it here. We got there a few minutes before our reservation time but the other couple wasn't there yet. We sat at the bar and was promptly served. Once the other couple arrived, we were seated and our server asked if we had been there before. She explained that the "chips" on the table were to let the servers know if we wanted more meat (green side up) and no more (red side up). Then she let us know we could go to the gourmet salad bar which included over 30 items. I have to say, I was very impressed not only with the selection of the salad bar, but the presentation as well. But the treat was the Lobster Bisque. It is the best that I have ever had - EVER! Once we all finished that portion of the meal, we turned our cards over for the meat. We didn't wait but maybe 45 seconds when the first of many came by with meats that made your mouth water. The other two in our party like their meats prepared well done. The meats that were being presented were medium rare and medium. When they let the servers know that, the servers said no problem and disappeared. They returned a short time later with meat that was cooked well done! To me, that was what made the difference and will have us come back again and again.

They kept the meat coming, removing any plates that we were done with, and kept our drinks filled. A female came over and asked how we liked it so far (I assume she was one of the managers) and told us that they had just opened in August. She was very friendly and it showed she took pride in the restaurant. We assured her that we would be dining again with them.

What I loved about this place is that even though it was small compared to other restaurants, we were able to hold conversations with others at our table and the food was DIVINE! A sure winner with this place.

My husband and I came here for New Years Eve brunch and we were not disappointed! I had the regular brunch buffet while my husband had the grilled meats brunch and both of us were extremely pleased. We were greeted with friendly smiles from the moment we walked in. The service and the food was spectacular. The restaurant was very cozy and comfortable and both my husband and I felt welcomed and were never rushed through any of the process at all. We have been to a similar restaurant and the food and service cannot compare to Avenida Brazil at all. We will definitely be going back!

The food was excellent. My wife and son are gluten intolerant. It was wonderful that the items on the salad bar were labeled GF, EF, DF, etc. It was very easy to find things that they could eat without worry. The servers were around when needed, but seemed to vanish when they were not needed. Our glasses were refilled often and our plates were replaced several times. We were offered cuts of meat as soon as our plate was empty. Yet we were allowed to sit and visit without interruption at the completion of our meal.

Five persons for a birthday celebration. I had requested a small chocolate cake with the birthday person's name on it. We were served sliced cake with only Happy Birthday written in icing on the platter. The slices, however, did have candles.
The menu pricing was not explained before dinner. A conflict of 38 dollars versus 47 dollars per person.
The food is excellent and fantastic presentation. The service was impeccable. The margaritas were not very good. Coffee was tasty.

We really wanted to like this place. We came here when it was operated by the previous owner and watched it go down-hill until a year ago when we decided it was never going to get better. Now, with a new owner and some positive reviews we were excited to try it again. Bummer, we've eaten at Brazilian Steakhouses in many places and this is just nothing special. They push shrimp and grilled Salmon as going very well with the salad bar, shrimp was done perfectly, salmon: not so good. Asparagus on the salad bar was very small and not properly trimmed, lobster bisque was quite good and unusual to find. Meat, advertised by the server as Kobe, I find very unlikely to be Kobe. Did manage to get some good lamb chops but it seemed that we had to ask for everything, not the usual flow of meats when the green chip is exposed. We'll not be back.

Wife and I went for our anniversary, first time coming to Avenida. We originally heard about the place from Houston Restaurant weeks but we were never able to make it. We are from Cypress so it’s a long drive. But it was really worth it. We had a very special night that we won’t soon forget!

Food was delicious. Lamb, shrimp and salmon were Yummmmmy as was the lobster bisque. Service was just as great.

I think we stayed just over two hours!
