    So we were there on a Saturday night. I doubted it at first because it only had three stars, but everything was perfect. We have been to many different Brazilian steakhouses, so we know how the concept works. Here what was different was the seafood. First, let me start with a waiter Luis he was fantastic explained everything and even gave us real good recommendations. He was always on top of things and made the service outstanding. The food was delicious; we got about six different types of meats, if not more. My daughter got the seafood included, and it was worth it. The salad bar was good with about 12 options; the salad bar also had rice and black beans. The bread was warm and had just come out. We also added dessert we tried the crème brûlée as well another specialty with ice cream and cake. To top it off luis recommend a liquor/coffee called carrajio. We had never tried it before but definitely loved the balance. Definitely recommend.

    Went on a Monday for the special rate. Food tasted like if it was re-heated leftovers. Salad bar is just random with sushi makes no sense. Our server was never around had to ask several times for a refill on our drink .

    Everything was great until we got our bill. No problem with the ~$150 for food and wine. Thought it was cheesy to charge for $5.50 for bottled water without asking if we would like to have that. Should offer tap water. Great experience but that aspect scrubbed off our experience that otherwise was great.

    I called ahead of time to see if I can just order the salad bar since I am meatless. I was told yes and quoted a price of $39.99. Our waiter said no so I paid $59.99 for pineapple. My husband orders the meat and our daughter ordered the seafood add on. We had a table that was wobbly and no one knew how to fix it. I had to explain to them how to do it. Our waiter abandon us for another table and we had most of of meal with Empty glasses. I finally waved down a manger and 15 minutes later we had refills of soda and wine. We reserved three people and noted it was a birthday. Advertising said free cake for birthday with 2+reservations. No dessert no recognition. Then we waited 20 minutes to finally get our bill and that was after I made several attempts to get the attention of multiple managers standing near our table. I understand understaffing. But the issues we had were not related to that.

    I’ll be honest , the meats is what you go for especially because of the price. However, they are not the best . The salad bar however is the best I’ve had so far out of All the churrascarías in San Antonio. The ambiance and the service especially from the chef is outstanding. I keep going back just for the salad bar .

    Horrible experience on my daughter’s birthday. Dry cold meat, til we talked to the manager, then it was hot and fresh, but thin slices. Slow service, but tip was included with our insanely overpriced bill. Fruit flies everywhere- salad bar, on our plates, flying around our heads. Do not recommend and won’t go back.

    I was very surprised to get charged the “Mother’s Day Special,” being that Open Table did NOT advertise or warned me when I was making my reservation about this extra charge ($20.00) per person. Very disappointed to find out of the extra charge at the time of paying the bill.

    Very enjoyable but they have a real issue with the smoke from their grilling… Need to fix the ventilation system because it was really smoky to the point where my eyes were burning by the time we finally left. But the food in the experience was great.

    There are better choices in the same area than this restaurant. The food was mediocre service was slow and the lack of attention to detail was horrible. There were fruit flies at the salad bar. The waitress had to bring me a new glass because the one she brought me had dead fruit flies around the rim. Save your money and time and go down the street to the other Churrascaria on IH 10.

    There were gnats all around our indoor table at night. The service from both the wait staff and the gauchos was slow. They did not bring out all cuts of meat as advertised in their website. We had to get our own fresh plates because of how slow service was and we had to request for the gauchos to come back around. We had been told the seafood portion was included in our meal and it was not we only saw that charge once the bill came. Parts of the seafood platter were over cooked and undercooked (the salmon was over cooked and the scallops on at least two of the plates were undercooked). The mashed potatoes on the salad bar were tough. The bottom sirloin was overdone, dry, and tough and the ribs were dry. This experience was definitely not worth the money and we will not be returning to Bovinos.

    Everything was good and we loved the food, the only downside is that they give you butter knives to eat your steak. We were never offered steak knives and although the steaks were soft, the knives were definitely not appropriate. Our server Jessica was amazing and when we ordered our carajillos, she mixed two of them with rumchata and they were the best carajillos we’ve ever had. Thank you Bovino’s we will be back!

    Beautiful restaurant. Excellent service. If you like meat, you will probably love this place. I took a friend of mine there for her birthday. We both got the salad bar. They brought a cheesecake for her birthday dessert. We also ordered an iced tea. With 22% gratuity our bill was $111. Very overpriced for two salads, one ice tea, and a birthday cheese cake. I thought the cheesecake would be complementary. It was amazingly good and worth $15. I didn’t. I don’t know what I was charged.

    The food was just okay the meats where not that good compared to other Brazilian steakhouses. The salad bar was not great the food looked old like it was sitting there for a while. When they came to change things out they still kept the old stuff on there for example: the corn on the cob. The sea food platter was disappointing the 1 scallop we got was so tiny, I can’t believe they put that on the platter. The salmon was over cooked and dry. The lobster and shrimp tasted the best. The octopus was to chewy. They didn’t even give you the right utensils to get the mussels out of the shell. So needless to say it was not worth the price and we will not be back.
