Steakhouse
Texas de Brazil is no ordinary steakhouse. It’s a dining experience like no other.

Here, traditions of Brazilian cuisine blend with generous Texas hospitality to create a lively atmosphere in an upscale setting. Your meal begins with a visit to our extravagant salad area – a feast for your eyes as well as your palate. Indulge in a wide array of seasonal roasted vegetables, fresh artisan breads, charcuterie, imported cheeses and other specialties.

Next, an endless parade of gauchos visit your table with skewers of freshly grilled meats carved tableside. Choose from perfectly seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, cooked over a wood charcoal fire the way cowboys of Southern Brazil have prepared it for generations. It’s all served with authentic side dishes and to further complement your meal, select from our award-winning collection of wines or traditional Brazilian bar creations.

Overall experience was pleasant. I enjoyed the salad bar, cheese bread, and mashed potato’s. Some of the meats were really salty, the others were fine. My waitress was extremely friendly and provided us with excellent service.

Texas de Brazil was a wonderful choice for our work get together! Everyone is still talking about the food and how well it was cooked, the amazing salad bar area, the drinks, and the amazing service we received. The moment we walked in to the moment we left we were taken care of; we all had a wonderful time.


If you are looking for a chic, upbeat place that serves wonderful food with a relaxing atmosphere you can't go wrong with Texas de Brazil!

The service was so wonderful. The staff is very attentive. It was our first time there and we had several questions and our waiter had no problem answering each one. On top of the service being great, the food is superb. We have been talking about our experience since we went 2 nights ago. We cant wait to go back!

Food was too salty and venue is too small. I eat a lot of salt however, this was excessive.

I cannot recommend that someone drop $47.99 when the average person won't be able to tolerate all the salt.

The service was good very attentive staff from door to table to end of meal!

The salad bar and hot plates were all very good, I was a big fan of the charcuterie myself, but everyone at our table had something to select that appealed and was a lot to explore new tastes!

The meat itself was very good- come here with an appetite built for MEAT!! Mashed potatoes served at table also very good and cheesy bread balls were great!

While I enjoyed the meat the only downside is that it is extremely SALTY! I found myself just kind of needing a palate cleanser but it is salt on top of salt- I feel like the meat could use a little more forgiving hand on the seasoning. This is what I came for so it was the most disappointing part for the price.

The servers were all good and service is more than what you would expect but just a little less salt will go a long way towards me enjoying the entire meal! I had to stop because of it!

This was a massive salad bar and had a hot bar as well. Good food with nice presentation. The Churrascaria was very good with nice service. The meats are what I would have expected but if you've never been before you'll be begging them to stop before you have sampled all that is offered. If you are into meat, do not overdo it on the salad bar!

Our first time there was nothing short of spectacular, food was amazing and our waitress was awesome, 2nd time there I made reservations for mother's day because everyone enjoyed it so much the last time, well........ I reccomend not going on a holiday, our reservations were 40 mins late, they dont have a big waiting area so everyone is waiting on top of one another, seems like they dont have it down yet for when they get super busy, will definitely be back though on a non holiday.

Very disappointed with yhe restaurant and overall experience. We had a lunch reservations for a party of 3 ( including a child). We got sat within minutes and that’s when the whole experience went down hill. First, the waitress spoke so fast that we couldn’t understand a word out of her mouth. They also put us at table by the door/waiting area. As more people arrived the area got so crowded that we had people surrounding our table. The situation was so bad and uncomfortable that a person behind me hit me in the head with their elbow. I also had to ask someone to move so I could get simply have some space to get up from my chair. After my child started to get so agitated we decided that it was time to speak to the manager and explain the situation. He then told us that if we wanted a “better” table we had to go back to the bottom of the waiting list with no garantees. We decided to get up and leave- my Mother’s day outing was ruined because at the point there was no way we could find a restaurant that was accepting walk-ins.

The last time we went it was way too busy and they were not as generous with the meats you prefer and we had waited over an hour before that so this experience on mother’s day redeemed that for us. You definitely need to have a reservation that’s the first thing to ensure a better experience. And because we went for lunch it was less busy and servers seemed much more polite and each one wished me a happy mother day which was extra kind. And all the meat was so delicious and prepared how we liked it medium rare. And we just love the salad bar there! I loved the sangria too! Very light and fresh red sangria I would highly recommend!

Unfortunately, the Gauchos did not come to our table very frequently. We often sat with empty plates even while our markers were turned to green. We were there late on a Saturday night so maybe that was the problem. I had been to a Texas de Brazil in Florida and the Gauchos were at our table constantly, so this was a disappointing experience at the Hartford restaurant.

Wasn’t worth the money and the service was terrible. Most of the meat was like warm at best being the table we sat at was by the salad bar. Which is totally out of the way of the servers. If you want the experience then head there but if you just want steak go elsewhere.

The food and our waiter were excellent. He explained how everything works right when we sat down and checked on us frequently.
The only downside was that I had made a reservation, but when we got there and checked in, we were the last group to be seated that was waiting. I understand that if you have a table of 4 open you aren't going to sit a party of 2. But i felt like it defeated the purpose of making a reservation if everyone else who just walked in was seated before.

Service was great. Our waitress in particular was super in tune to our needs in addition to providing a great level of hospitality. Meat temperatures seemed to vary. At one point our slice of “picaline” was blue and cold in the middle. Some of the smaller pieces of meat like the garlic sirloin or pork were particularly dry. However, the flank steak was amazing.

The place was great and food was delicious. For a lunch menu I thought the options were limited. I am Brazilian and have been to many Churrascarias all over the states where the lunch menu and salad bar had more options and more authenticity. Overall, the staff was great - very polite, pleasant and attentive to our requests. I look forward to coming back and bringing friends and family to try out our beautiful and unique cuisine.

This was one of the best dining experiences we've ever had! Everything was superior from start to finish. We made a reservation and were brought right in on arrival and shown our table. The staff was amazing catering to each and every request. In particular our server Chelsea was outstanding with the level of service provided and I would honestly say that because of her, we had this incredible dining experience! We will definitely return and recommend to our family and friends.

This was our second time and not nearly as good as the first. We sat on the outskirts of the restaurant and it seemed we never got a variety of meats. It as as if they never made it over to us due to the fact people were taking it as it came out. I’d highly suggest to management that they change the rotation now and then and start on the outside of the restaurant and work their way back to kitchen. That was you can ensure people at the outer edge get a good variety of meats.

The food was out of this world - fresh, amazing quality, hot, and perfectly cooked. The service was exemplary. Our waiter Eduardo was attentive, knowledgeable, funny, and sparked good conversation. 11/10 stars - we will be back!
