This place was closed down. Drove all the way there with a reservation and while parking I found out it was closed about 2 weeks ago. Not happy at all.

This restaurant was closed! My family and I arrived to find the doors locked and a sign on the door that they were closed since the end of March. I am very unhappy with Open Table for allowing me to make reservations at a restaurant that was no longer in business! Nowhere on Open Table was I informed of this.

I go to these type Brazilian Steakhouses all over the country. I have never waited that long for the beef to start coming...ever. I was really disappointed as it took me two times in town to actually get to go there. They were pushing anything but beef for a really long time. This is not what makes this dining experience special. I will not be going back and it makes me reluctant to try another restaurant of this type that I know nothing about.

Thank goodness I saved money by using a groupon, because this was not worth the cost! Not even for the groupon cost. There were huge gaps in time between meat servings, so much so that the INSTANT potatoes they served were cold before the meat arrived. They replaced them, but they went cold again before the next arrived. The desserts were disgusting and were obviously pre-made.

We were sat in a table by a wall with paint chipping all around.

Yuck!

My favorite restaurant in the state of Texas so far. As a Brazilian, I can say, this is one of the best Brazilian barbecues I've had. If the price scares you do not back away immediately, you will got just (if not more) of what you are paying for in this authentic Brazilian barbecue buffet!

Rafain - Fort Worth. It was hot, the fans were on but it was still very warm. I was wearing a sleeveless shirt and was still hot. Too dark for Sunday Brunch, more sunlight for the day time.

Dark ambiance should be reserved for dinner. Where's the AC? I choose this restaurant over Texas De Brazil because the Addison Location was wonderful.

Also, there was a limited selection of deserts and did not see Couscous anywhere on the salad bar. I expected more Rafain's FW. I was entertaining friends from out of town and spoke so highly of your restaurant until they started sweating.

Your staff was very polite and always asked if we needed any more meats. Thank you for that.

Great place! Beef Stroganoff at the salad bar was AMAZING! Desserts were also available on the salad bar. Staff was very attentive and friendly. I did find that a couple of the meat selections were a bit too salty but my husband did not feel the same. Overall a wonderful evening and we would definitely dine there again.

I came here for me and girlfriend's anniversary and I could not be more than pleased with everything. The food was delicious but most importantly the service was top notch. We were treated with pretty much five star service and our server Jorge helped make this day very special for us by constantly attending to us and especially for the complimentary champagne to cap off our night. Will definitely be coming here again!

Food was good. Salad bar was not bad but not as good as other Brazilian steak houses like Chama's for example. Nice atmosphere. Steaks were pretty good, especially the prime rib! Definitely my wife's favorite. Service was not on par with the restaurant. I definitely expected more but I would say it was barely adequate. Our server was not as attentive with the drinks and just general service. He could have been overloaded with too many tables. I would go back again. Just too good not to!!

Have been here a total of 3 times, first time was the absolute best. Quiet atmosphere, everything was hot and fresh, our waiter stayed with us the entire time and was extremely respectful and attentive. The second experience was in december around christmas, I understand it was busy and the service was a bit choppy. They skipped over us a few times, the check took a long long time to come back, and they also seemed irritated with us. This last visit is what broke my image of this place. It was lunch time, we went in and had a super kind waiter. He actually was the first one there to ever offer us sauces for our meats. Excellent waiter, kept up with refills and asked us how everything was multiple times. He eventually disappeared and another man came around and asked us if we wanted more of the bread/fried bananas. We said yes and he took all our empty plates and never came back. The next time he saw us was when he dropped off the check at the table while we went to get desert. How rude, the reservation was at 12 noon and we were already done about 12:40. It was not even an hour. I wish he could have been more patient with us, or even asked if we were finished with the plates on our table. There was still food on them. But I digress, food was excellent, service was ehh. Ill think about making a 4th trip, maybe not.

Was disappointed with overall experience. Food was ok but some of meat we were offered was dried out. Most had good flavor. Salad bar was good but limited options compared to others that we have dined at. Service started out good but then we had to wait for refills and meat. The last 20 minutes we had the card on green, all of the servers walked all around us but quit stopping to offer us meat. I didn't have dessert but everyone else at the table thought it was great. I gave up and asked for the check. I did inform the waiter about our issue and he was apologetic. Even offering to take off of our tab. However that wasnt what I was after but did appreciate the offer. After we paid out he did return with a 25.00 gift card. I think the place has potential, we may have just been on a miss night. I would give it another chance. As we all know sometimes things just don't go right all the time. And the fact that the waiter seemed concerned with our issue, seems that they have a standard they expect to achieve.

We did not have a great experience. We had an 8:30 reservation and did not get seated until around 8:50. Fortunately, we were seated by the clean plates and water pitchers because we had to get our own clean plates after salad and our own refills which lasted until the pitchers were empty. I expressed concern to a manager about the refills and he didn't even come by to apologize and take care of it. Instead, he sent our server who apologized, but she explained she was dealing with credit card problems. We waited for the meats to come around for quite awhile and asked for two things from at least 4 different people over 15 minutes. This was a stressful experience. We've been here before but may not go back and will definitely not go back when it's busy.

Service is great, everyone is very nice. This was our 2nd time and the food was great, just like last time. Exactly what you would expect from a Brazilian steak house. The salad and dessert bar isnt quite as robust as the other Brazilian steak house down the road (Texas de Brazil), however, it is still pretty good, and the dessert is INCLUDED with your meal, unlike the other place, where you pay extra for it. Rafains is our favorite place to celebrate a special occasion, or have a date night with me and the Mrs.

The food was pretty good, other than having the meat only blue rare or well done. The service was good, but very tricky when the bill came. I spent over $200 and won't be going back. That was a complete waste of money. I would have been okay with 15$ a plate per person. Not 45$. Completely dissatisfied with the way the reviews for the business displayed an upscale dining experience which is what I was looking for, and I could have just gone in the door in shorts, and flip flops. Giving 3 stars is generous, and only because the server was decent.

I found this place on Groupon. It was good in service but the food lacked flavor. The only delicious meats they had was the sirloin in my opinion. Everything else was good but nothing compared to Texas de Brazil. We went to the Fort Worth location but I heard good things about the dallas one. Maybe the Dallas location has better selection. Idk. Was super nice but would probably never go back again.

This was our 4th time coming and we, as always, we beyond impressed!!!

We will forever choose this restaurant over Texas De Brazil!!
