Brazilian Steakhouse
Just like in our name, Avenida Brazil Churrascaria Steakhouse, we stay true to the foundations of the traditional Brazilian churrascaria.



The experience is split up into two parts



Part 1: Salad Bar - After being seated, guests can help themselves to our gourmet salad bar stocked with more than 30 fresh items.



Part 2: Meat - At each of our seats, we include a coaster with a red side and a green side. Once back at their table, guests can start signaling our gauchos (meat servers) by flipping over the coaster to the red side. This indicates that the guest is ready to enjoy the 13+ succulent meats, which include lamb, beef, chicken, and fish. As an accent to the meat, we provide five delicious side dishes.

When we pulled up we were told that the Valet was not optional. The restaurant seated us immediately in a nice location. We ended up having 3 different servers for our table. Service is very fast and can be over-whelming at times. Most of the meat selections were good, salad bar was good. Valet service very rude.

They tried to charge me $40 over the advertised online price. Also the top sirloin really tasted off. The ribeye did not look appetizing and tasted ok.

Service was terrible. We made a reservation but other walk ins were sat before us. Unprofessional staff. Dirty facility. No social distancing. They charge you for water. I’m never going back.

Had an amazing experience at Avenida. Manager was sure to greet us and ensure we didn’t need anything and were happy! The food was phenomenal and the salad bar had such a great variety. Provided hand sanitizer and gloves. Waiters would visit our table frequently and asked if there was anything we would specifically like. Tables were spaced out from on another. Truly enjoyed my dinner here and will definitely be dining in again!

Our visit to Avenida Brazil was incredibly disappointing. During our meal we had to continually ask for the different items offered with our meals. We had to ask multiple times for drinks that weren’t brought out. Once our meal was complete, our server disappeared for 45 minutes, and I had to flag down another server to ask for our bill... he never returned, so I asked for a manager. The manager proceeded to argue with me when I informed him that we’d been left without service or drink refills for an hour. Service was horrible and the food was just ok.

As always this is one of the most awesome places to dine at. The staff is very attentive and in good spirits and the food is incredible and tasteful. The manager, Jesus, is a stand up and top notch guy! Every dining experience we’ve ever had there just gets better with each visit. One of our very favorite places to dine for any occasion.

Food was extremely over salted, it seemed as if they kept tossing fresh meat on the same grill. After about 4 pieces the same way we asked for our check and left. Also $3 for canned coke. 🤦🏽‍♀️

This is the second year we have come here for Christmas and we love it. The ambiance is nice. It’s quiet and I can have a conversation with my husband without raising my voice. The food is so good and there are plenty of choices. I love the salad bar and my husband loves the fried bananas and of course all the meats are delicious. It’s a great place for a date night or special occasion. You won’t be disappointed.

I brought two friends who had never been here before. We thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas Dinner.
The only reason I am giving the food 4 out of 5 stars is because this location no longer offers Halal. One of the person's in my party would have preferred Halal, but she enjoyed evwrything regardless.

This place is a hidden gem in the Bay Area of Houston. I have been to a similar restaurant across town, snd this is just as good on a smaller scale. The salad bar was well presented and very clean, and the waiters attentive. I gave 4 stars because they bring the side dishes out before you’ve completed the salad, and is cold by the time the meats arrive. Also, I was not impressed with the dessert choices. I’m sure I will return, but it was a nice experience.

Very attentive, accommodating and great service of the wait staff and everyone. Impressed with safety precautions in place esp. for the salad bar. Food was great and tasty. We were served with almost every item on the list — except for the scallops & smoked salmon (?). Maybe it wasn’t available. We had our fill though. My family of 3 enjoyed our Christmas dinner. We tried to finish every meat served to us. We had a quiet and lovely time.

My only thing is — hopefully they serve bigger lamb chops. The lamb chops we had was miniscule and only had it once (husband and I shared. It was good). We would definitely be back probably for other important occasion to celebrate. (FYI: my family & friends loved the photos from the dining we had that I shared/posted. They would like to try to go as well.)

We go here for Thanksgiving every year and decided to celebrate Christmas Eve here with my family! They have outstanding customer service and always make sure you get the meats you want. My drink never went below half full and their salad bar is outstanding! I can’t wait to go back for a nice dinner with my husband, maybe celebrate New Year’s?! I highly recommend eating here to celebrate any milestone in your life, or just a nice dinner!

We really enjoyed our Christmas Eve dinner at Avenida Brazil - Clear Lake; not only was the food delicious, fresh, and more than we could of expected, the service was wonderful as well. It is rather difficult, to find a nice restrurant that can accomodate both my husband and I; being that I am vegan and he is not. Contrary to my fears, this exceptional steakhouse provided full and satisfied bellies for us both. On Christmas Eve, none-the-less. The only suggestion for improvement I have; the restraurant was pretty over crowded and it did not feel intimate as I expected being that the prices are mildly high. Overall the food was delicious, however, I would be more enjoyable to see more vegatable options that were not covered in cheeses.

Food service started out great then it seemed like we were on the back side of the food in which there was nothing left and happened to wait 12 to 15 minutes for more to come out just to skip our table. Also took 20 minutes for the check so we could leave.
