Texas De Brazil - Rochester
Food and service were amazing. The restaurant had classy decor. The wait staff were polite and attentive. It was easy to find and find parking. We greatly enjoyed our dinner and would go back again for a special occasion.
Loved the service from the greetings at the door until leaving out. Jed our server was WONDERFUL!
"upscale casual"......The food is top of the line! The wait staff, managers, and servers all made our visit a great time! Very attentive, we didn't need to wait to eat, we went right in, on time. A party of 8 and we were eating instantly. The salad bar is incredible, and the meats were served hot and fresh, and they just kept coming. What a wonderful experience!!!! Highly recommend!!!
We love the Brazilian culture! Hosted 6 foreign exchange students from there and then adopted 3 children! Texas de Brasil is our “go-to” for all special occasions. The manager, Nicole, is excellent as is all the staff!
Ambience was beautiful; Waitstaff was extremely attentive; food was very fresh, varied and delicious, loved the potatoes au gratin.
Food was amazing and readily available. Celebrated a birthday.
Great food. Better service Sheily was awesome. Fun atmosphere.
Amazing service and food. Great atmosphere will be back soon.
Never had a bad meal or poor service here. This time, we went for a early dinner about 5 pm on a Friday following the 4th of July. With people taking a long weekend / week off for vacation, there was still a good amount of diners enjoying the meal. Good selection of drinks available and a nice section of items on the soup and salad bar too. We always try to get our server to relax and chat a little bit too. :-)
Wonderful, helpful staff and fabulous food
Food was great. The wait person was amazing and she constantly kept our table refreshed and cleared when needed. Friendly service also.
Amazing meats and salad bar.
This restaurant was absolutely AMAZING! Food and service was the Best I’ve ever had!
Wait staff was awesome, food was good. The only problem was the hostess, we almost went elsewhere. Showed up on a Monday at 6:20 and was told it would be over an hour (7:30) to get seated with the place not full at all. I checked on my phone and instantly was able to make a 6:30 reservation (or for any time slot after that). When your hostess isn't empowered to seat people that's just letting money walk out the door, which we observed with the next 5-10 people who walked in and out while I was making the reservation. At the end of the day a terrible seating system/inexperienced hostess nearly ruined this place.
I brought a friend who had never been and he was quite impressed with the quality of the food and the fact that the quantity was unlimited... well... until you're stuffed to the gills.
The experience was great. Eat as much or as little of each cut of beef and lamb, plus chicken and shrimp. Very nice soup and salad bar as well. Fun being served at your table from probably 8 servers slicing/serving the various offerings. Pricey but worth the experience.
This is my second time in 3 months at Texas de Brazil - Rochester. The service both times was excellent. However, this time the saltiness of almost all of the food was way, way too much (and I like salt). In addition, most of the meats I received this time were well done, not the medium as my stated preference. It will be a while before I consider going again.
This place is amazing! It was an all around great experience from the staff to the food and even the drinks. Couldn’t find one thing that wasn’t perfect.
We were a table that wanted rare meat. The servers said they would be back next with rare yet we watched them return and avoid our table often. Managerial staff stopped often to ask how everything was, which was excellent. Just disappointed that it took so long to get our meal started because we wanted rare meat. Everything tasted great, though!!
I've dined at this chain at least six times in Detroit and always enjoyed it, not so much the case in Rochester. It wasn't busy on a Saturday evening but we had to wait for our table. We had a cocktail at the bar while we waited and the drinks were well made and enjoyable. We were seated in the back of the restaurant right by the entrance to the restrooms. Our table was directly under a very loud fan so much that I couldn't hear the server over the noise of the fan and the loud noise overall in the restaurant. The people at the table behind us were yelling at each other trying to have a conversation. The salad bar was good with a large selection of fresh foods. The servers weren't very attentive as the continued to walk past without stopping when in our area even though our cards were green side up. This area of the restaurant is out of the way and most of the servers were out of food before they left the "main" area so we were left waiting. Basically we had a small piece of flank steak, one piece of sausage, chicken and fillet. It's not a cheap dinner by any means but you know that going in, you just expect a little better service for the price. We won't be back.
It was good. The man brought his big delicious meat. I loved his meat.
This is the 3rd Texas De Brazil I’ve been to and was the worst. Had to constantly ask for food as servers walked by without stopping.
Great job by our waitress!
First, I must mention that our waitress was absolutely fantastic. She was friendly, attentive, and helpful, even with my kids. As for the rest of the staff, about half were friendly and attentive, the other half were clearly bored, grumpy, annoyed or just not interested. The restaurant was not even full or crazy busy!
As for the food and the experience, my best description is Thad the restaurant is overhyped and overpriced. The variety of food at the salad bar/buffet was fine, with two or three unusual and unique choices. The rest was ordinary but good. Clearly the meats are the stars in the restaurant, and they were tasty and cooked well. My personal favorite was the filet mignon, which was perfectly cooked and simply seasoned. Perhaps my biggest issue is that I have had much more unique, tasty meals for the same price or less and have emerged from an experience much more satisfied. The Brazilian cheesecake was by far my favorite part of the meal—beautiful in it’s presentation and delicious to boot!
In all, Texas de Brazil is a good restaurant, not a great one in my opinion. It can serve a purpose if you have a large group or a party with a large variety of tastes and preferences.
The food was awesome and the environment was great!
Unique and delicious food both at the salad bar and the meats.
Felt a little rushed at times.
This was my second visit to this location. I returned after a great first experience. This time our waitress did a nice job but meat serving was considerably different. We asked for specific cuts multiple times that were very slow, or not delivered at all. During one 15 minute stretch I saw 1 person throughout the whole dining area serving shrimp. After a long wait several of us gave up and returned to the salad bar. I dont intend to try this again.
It is the closest thing to a real Brazilian Rodizio, the meat and the overall food is good and most of the "gauchos" have a sense of humor, others not at all. The Caipirinha needs a lot of improvements to be called drinkable.
Everything was great. We will definitely be going back
Salad bar contained a variety of foods and specialties, both hot and cold. Favorable. Colorful choices. The meat was tasty, tender, and mouth watery, cooked so the flavors of spices penetrated through each slice.
I was a little disappointed. We went to TdB for Father’s Day. In the 90 mins we were there I think people came to our table with meat like 8 times, and half of them we didn’t want and the. The meats we did want we weren’t able to get to come by even after asking. The salad bar was half empty and didn’t get replenished during our meal. For the price I thought it would be a better experience. Maybe it was just because it was busy. But it was certainly different than our prior experiences.
Amazing! We had an awesome experience. The food speaks for itself. I don't think there was anything I didnt enjoy from the sushi to the potatoes to every single taste of meat that we had. Our waiter made this experience the best! I would have returned because of him. He was kind, knowledgeable, friendly, and personable. We are hooked and will be back. I have recommended about 20 people already.
Food was great, our server was excellent, is my 3 rd time there and I love it.
This place was amazing! Outstanding experience all together. We are definitely going back.
We had a wonderful Father’s Day here! The food was fresh and delicious and we LOVE that they offer us a 20% off HERO discount for my husbands service.
Excellent spot to take my father on Father's Day. The meats were excellent and flavorful, and you can't top that salad bar.
By far my favorite place to dine. I’m always treated like royalty and the food is always amazing. I’ve come to know most of the staff and look forward to seeing them each visit. They are incredible people
The food was i little over seasoned . But other than that everything was perfect
Great evening with friends. The food was incredible and the service was wonderful.
This was our first experience and will not be our last! Nick was an excellent server and very attentive.
