The whole experience was wonderful. Food, service was excellent!
So many meat options. It is great food, a little bit expensive but worth it
Amazing restaurant, overall experience was great! Service was incredible and the food was delicious!
They could do better on their meat selection and salad bar
Food was very tasty and service was top notch! It was a bit loud and although there aren’t any booths, it was an overall great dining experience, based off of taste, service and selection. You do get a ton of great tasting food, but if you don’t eat much to begin with, it is a bit of a hefty bill. All said and done, it was well worth the experience and we will return again, for special occasions.
Love this place and will for sure be back!!
Food was absolutely delicious. The service was incredible. It is a unique dining experience and I will definitely be back.
Delicious food, lots of choice, free birthday dessert!
Service was really good. Unfortunately, we may have not been in sync with the meat service. I love garlic but the cubed garlic sirloin was waaaaaaaaay too garlicky. The regular one was reaaaaally good, though! I thoroughly enjoyed the rib eye, sausage, and beef picanha.
Food was cold or warm but it got cold to quickly.
Our server was incredibly attentive as well as most of the staff that were rounding about. It was our first time experiencing Texas De Brazil and our server really took care of us. There were moments some 5 to 10 minutes though that either no meat was brought to our table or they zoomed past us despite having the green card flipped. Luckily, our server remedied this issue by asking us if we had anything specific we wanted to try. We promptly answered yes.
Some of the meats were a tad bit dry to our liking such as the sirloins and filet mignons. Everything else was exceptional and filled with flavor. A gentleman with a ponytail thoroughly explained the desserts that were offered and my goodness were we impressed... We’re dessert people and chose to get our own. Triple layer carrot cake over here and Creme Brûlée for the lady. Carrot cake - impressive, Creme Brûlée - not so much. We’ll definitely be back and hopefully the meat runners don’t overlook our table next time. Overall, a great experience!
Meal was good. However very upsetting at the end, when the restaurant refused to accept Texas de Brazil Gift Cards for payment. This was our first time here and it just happened to be Restaurant Week. Our server offered us the Restaurant Week special without indicating that Gift Cards use was not eligible. We were surprised when the bill came and we were told they won't accept Gift Cards. The Manager came to our table and flatly refused to accept them!! Last time we dine here!
Great experience! One of our favorite things places to go!
The meats were not as well prepared as last few times I’ve been. In fact, I couldn’t eat much after my first few bites of meat as my stomach turned from eating it. I think it was the skirt steak or something but it tasted like cow and not steak. Very gamey. The lamb felt over cooked as well. We love this place but wish we could have had a more consistent experience this time.
We were overcharged by $100. Will attempt to contact them today to rectify, but I expect more from an establishment of this nature.
The cold food bar was very good and fresh. We were seated promptly. The noise level made it a little difficult to have a conversation. Overall it was delicious!
Great food but I would rather go to lunch where it is less crowded. Could barely hear my wife or the waiter over the large groups at the restaurant.
I already shared the wonderful experience with coworkers and friends - it was a great experience!
Definitely a great place for birthdays and anniversaries! I had a great time with my boo!
Amazing food!! Great ambiance!! Will be coming back very soon!!
The overall service was good, and we enjoyed the food. However, I was not very happy with their payment system. The server brings the tablet for the dining guests to sign and leave gratuity. The tipping calculation is very misleading. When we came home and looked over the bill, the restaurant’s suggested 20% tip turned out to be 28% of the pre-tax subtotal. With the server standing right next to you to input the tip amount, we felt rushed and forced to go with the flawed/miscalculated/misleading tipping system. We will not be returning to this restaurant.
They served us a huge chunk of FAT that they called beef rib
Great churascaria. Meat was perfectly cooked and the service was impeccable. Will definitely come back here.
The food was wonderful - very tasty and the service was quite good given that the restaurant was full. If you asked for something the servers hustled to provide it and always with a smile. This was our first time at the restaurant and we will definitely return.
It was good to try it for oc restaurant week . Food selection was extensive. We were a little bit late but they still held our reservation
It was amazing! The service was very attentive and constant. It is pricey yet very worth it! The food was exquisite. I highly recommend the smoked salmon and the lamb. I am not a fan of both but these were amazing I couldn’t believe I wanted seconds!
Service was great also restaurant appearance was very nice. All meats were a bit under cooked requested medium but still came out bloody.
Great food great service A+. Took my wife for a night out and we loved it. Food was cooked to perfection.
Good house beef, filet mignon, and bacon wrapped chicken. Also, the ribeye was good.
The salad bar area was tasty and beautifully presented. We specifically requested medium rare which was ok on the larger cuts of meat but the lamb chops and filet mignonette were well done shoe leather. We thought that might be avoided by going early at 5pm but it wasn’t . The house special beef was the best but it didn’t come around till late in the disappointing game.
It is always an amazing adventure. we brought friends who dined there for the first time.
Food comatose :)
One of my favorite restaurants...So good... I had my wedding reception there🙌🏽
Dinner saturday night. Same day reservations, could not get in before 830. Waiter was very helpful and attentive. Food good but not great. Will return
The food was amazing. Great salad bar too. I went for my birthday and was completely satisfied.
So firstly, this is family dining - open plan, large groups so the noise level is high.
This venue is popular, service is excellent, our waiter was very attentive. Food is fantastic with an great wine selection for any budget.
We had a great evening and will be back 👍
Our host Jennifer was fantastic! She was always around to check on our dining experience and was great at explaining the various meats and desserts! The wait time was minimal, and the atmosphere was good on the patio. When my wife smelled smoke (and Jennifer also said she smelled it), Jennifer rushed out and asked the people just outside the patio area to stop smoking. She make our entire night. The food was good for the most part, but I wasn't familiar with Brazilian style of cooking and the amount of salt in some of the meats (and one of the salads at the self-serve bar). I'd go back, but I'm afraid i'd have to ask each Gaucho (host serving the meat) if the meat has "a lot of salt" - however, that is a subjective question, and I don't think the Gaucho can answer it since everyone's taste preference is different.
Again, please give Jennifer kudos for a great job and making our dinning experience a pleasant one!
The food is good, choice of meat is plenty, except we were overlooked a lot. We were placed by a large party and near the entry of where the food came out. Our original server was good but she went on break and did not tell us. For 30 minutes, we had one waitress stop by and then 30 minutes later a busboy can by to clear our table even though we weren’t ready to leave cause we were still waiting for a waitress to come by and refill with bread and plantains. I’ve been here a few times but this was the worst service.
Very nice place. The service was outstanding, and the food suburb.
The lamb chops are to die for! And the lobster bisque. I dip the cheese bread into it. Deliciousness!
Great place to try all different cuts if meat, prepared all different ways.
