Even with reservations and their requirement for being there within a 15 minute window, we had to wait 30 minutes. Brian, our waiter, was outstanding. He was engaging and joked with us.

The experience was the best part. They were very busy and it was fun, loud, and exciting. The downside was they were clearly in a rush to turn the table. The food we received was wonderful but the lack of what was advertised was disappointing. Our server Tiffany was wonderful and very patient. She asked if she could request anything we hadn't received yet so we asked for bacon wrapped filet, pork ribs, and garlic steak. None of them ever came. In fact the garlic steak was offered to the table next to and behind us but not us. It almost felt as if when they are ready for you to leave they just stop offering you meats, almost. I will say we definitely did not leave hungry and the food received was delicious. The sausage was amazing! The banana fosters pie was meh. It looked much better on the website and I didn't get the fancy banana on the side. All in all happy we went but won't be going again.

10min before meat came to table which was chicken, sausage, and pork. After 40min we asked for something red meat and mgr came over and apologized. We turned over our cards and they rushed us the bill. We were not necessarily done but paid anyway. one of us was still drinking their wine and a different mgr came and asked us to leave as there were others with reservations.
If we'd gotten served sooner, drinks as well as meat, we'd have probably been able to adhere to their reservation times.
Not enough seating for large groups as ours was 6 and we were supper squished in the back with not room for servers to get around us.
Sadly, this was the last time we will eat there as the other three visits were really good.

Personal I didn’t enjoy the taste of most of the food, not saying this isn’t a good restaurant others may absolutely love it, I just didn’t enjoy the food. There is to many Parmesan covered items.

Meat quality was so low. You were rotating Chicken, Sausage and pork all the time. I had to ask multiple times for beef and lamb meat. Plus, host was very forceful to sit us in a very small table while we entered the 1st group to the dinning room at opening time 5pm while all tables are empty.

Well, I have been to this location before as well as others in Texas. I am not sure if it was just a shortage of staff issue but this last experience left me feeling very flat about going back. We only got three meat selections to come around our table and kept waiting and waiting for the ones we actually wanted. It was the most expensive salad bar I have ever eaten at, as we did not get the steak we were hoping for. For $350 you would expect a lot more. Sadly, I don’t think I will be going back which is sad because it wasn’t always like this in the past.

Food is great, but several times we asked for filet and didn't get it. Finally, near the end, they brought us some. That was somewhat frustrating, especially for what we pay. Not like my experience with the Texas De Brazil in Ft. Worth, TX. Other than that the salad bar and meat is outstanding.

Great service, great food. The ambiance was very energetic however with the meat servers power walking everywhere with different selections of meats and king sharp knives. The restaurant was packed when I got there. Overall, lovely service would go there again. If I could change something it would be to make it more intimate somehow.

Delicious. The meat just keeps coming. The salad bar is amazing. My husband loved it & said 2 thumbs up! Great wine. Great dessert. I’ve been twice in Vegas, and this is my first time at the Tacoma location. It did not disappoint.

We kinda felt rushed, 30 min in and as we were waiting for more food to come, our server brought already the dessert tray out! Now we’ve been there more than once and know that it was rushed. Sorry but if it would have been busy then I’d understand it but it definitely wasn’t busy at all.

After we were seated we had to wait almost 10 minutes for our waiter...and that was after we flagged down the hostess and asked for service. Also very slow in bringing ordered drinks. Food was outstanding, although the "gauchos" ignored the "red" cards and were asking if we wanted their food even when both cards were "red". No distancing between tables.

The food quality has gone down. The filet had no flavor, the bacon wrapped filet was raw and the garlic filet had a strange flavor and after taste. Additionally, we had to wait extended amounts of time to see a rotation of meat and we never saw the sausage until the end when we had to specifically ask if they would come by. We also had a reservation but they made us wait 20 minutes past our time to be seated. We had an infant with us so it was incredibly inconvenient and annoying.

We have visited this and others in the chain. Aruba was a 5 star, but the island has a lot to do with that. Tacoma gets 4 stars but there are things that cause that that I am not sure are in their control. The wait staff they had there were attentive and professional. ours got a 100-dollar tip. However, there weren't many of them. These poor people never stopped. I am grateful and appreciative they did not. The food quality was top notch, but the selection was not quite up to par. I'm sure the Covid crap had a hand in that. Same with the drink selection but these were minor issues. While the quality of the food was very good the hot courses, meaning soups and different potatoes were tepid to cold. No doubt because they were not tended to as they would be if they were fully staffed. Everything was seasoned very well. I turned into a big fan of what I can only guess was shrimp ceviche. (No sign) All the salad bar stuff was well done and well presented. I encourage all of you reading this to give it a try. It is well worth the price, and everyone should have to waddle out of a restaurant at least once in their lives. Keep it up guys and gals. Thank you for a wonderful evening and we will be back.

This was our first time dining at Texas de Brazil. We enjoyed caipirinhas, salad bar, sides, and various cuts of meat. My personal favorites were the leg of lamb and picanha. I also enjoyed the fried banana and asparagus.
They took some some precautions for COVID safety. Disposable gloves were available for use at the salad bar and sides. Hand sanitizer was available at various locations.
Our server was attentive and accommodating. They made suggestions and explained to us the process of getting our food.
Not everything on the menu online was available. We would have like to try the bacon-wrapped filet mignon, sausage, and ribs, but it didn’t quite make it to our table.
Other than that, we enjoyed our experience there and left with full bellies.

Our 2nd visit. First was in Las Vegas about 3 years ago. Expected a similar experience in Tacoma but was a little disappointed. The food was consistently great. The room was pretty crowded, tables closer than in Las Vegas. I expected same or greater spacing due to covid. Meat servers in Vegas were very observant and attentive to meat tokens and if they offered something you didn't want and you told them what you wanted they would pass the info to the right guy and you would have you choice of meat within a few minutes. In Tacoma I had my meat token displayed and several servers walked by but ignored it. Spoke to our waiter, he spoke to the servers, but I was disappointed that I had to go that route to be served.

Going for Christmas dinner was a wonderful idea. The food was great! The staff was pleasant. Visiting from a state were masks are not mandatory it has been hard to deal with the masking in Washington but they didn’t make it awful. My mother in law commented several times about how amazing the food was and how it made for a relaxing day. After a lot of loss and caring for sick loved ones the past 3 Christmas this is what my husband and I were hoping for. Thank you for that!

The online menu show different, they served less then half of what was shown online. The lamb chops were extra if you wanted. Since they don't give you a menu pricing for extras are unclear. Place was clean and the staff was great, these controllable issues must come from the management. I don't like unexpected charges on the bill.
