Food was not being delivered to us and people who bring the food would just pass by us even thought we had our signs on green I waited 40min for one piece of meat !!

Food and selection was great. But service was not there at all today. Granted it was Valentines Day but I have been here on Valentines Day before and service was great. This time however it was not great, the server is not to blame as he was assisting 10 other tables. Will be back but was disappointed with the service as normally it is great.

Valentines Day dinner. Everything was very good and we had a fantastic dinning experience.

I was surprised, and I didn’t expect that a gratuity is automatically applied for only two people, and then there is an expectation for adding an additional tip. Both were not necessary.

My wife and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary and she'd never been to a Brazilian steakhouse. We preferred to have a special meal without eating later in the day so we chose this place since they are open for lunch. We totally enjoyed the experience.

Good value for the money.
For me the restaurant is a little dark, but it might be ok for others.

We come here every year for my daughter’s birthday- it’s her fav. We like it better than Fogo mainly because they have shrimp and Fogo does not (it at least they didn’t before). Also this spot is closer for us and I think a few bucks cheaper.

We had a wonderful experience. Food was delicious. Beef tender and tasty. The salad bar is much mire than a salad bar with smoked salmon, broiled spiced bacon, marinated vegetables along with normal green dressing and condiments. Service was attentive but not overly so. All our party was impressed.

I think that we made something of a mistake in coming to a late sitting on a holiday. That said, listening to the manager and a client haggle loudly andat length over the price of a case of wine wasn't amusing after the first few minutes. We may return to a different restaurant in the same franchise, but not this one.

I love this place. The food is super yummy. The steaks, pork, chicken, lamb and salmon are delicious. Everything is seasoned well and cooked to perfection. The salad bar is fresh and their bacon is a must try. I can’t get enough. I highly recommend

The food taste, smell and presentation was excellent, atmosphere was great, staff knowledge and attentiveness was over our expectation, no question about service speed, the general impression of the restaurant was outstanding. A little overpriced, we were a group of 6 people, it was about $57.00 a person! We wanted to share a dessert but waiter insisted that the portion was very small and that we should order our own, it was a lie, dessert portions were huge and we ended with a giant size dessert that we couldn't finish, I understand he was trying to sell but not this way. Other than that everything was wonderful.

Probably my 25th visit to the restaurant (between this location and Webster), and my 8th for Christmas with my team. By far, the worst visit. I know they are crazy busy during the Christmas holidays, but this was a relatively quiet Wednesday before the crowds had descended. We only saw 6 of the meats until I complained when they brought us the check. Sides were never replenished, drinks left to go empty. Overall, not the special place it has been. Perhaps the expansion to the other locations has meant the loss of attention that brought the excellence of the original version.

Meat lovers paradise. I can’t pick a favorite here. Everything is delicious. The steaks, ribs, chicken, salmon, lamb. I could go on and on with raves. The salad bar is fully stocked and their bacon is a must try too. Great wine selection and friendly service

Probably my 25th visit, so I am a huge fan. Wanted to try the buffalo ribeye, which was amazing as expected. Unfortunately, and this has never happened, the service was abysmal. Sides were not brought until asked for twice, and then never refilled. Water glasses went empty, a bunch of meats never made it around. I know it was a Sunday brunch, but they clearly were not prepared for the amount of folks who were present.

Great place. Came here to celebrate my dad's birthday. Friendly hostess (this is super important since they are generally the first person you see). We were seated quickly and our drink orders were taken immediately. The Brazilian-style food service was explained thoroughly.

Appetizer buffet table was splendid. The main course (all of the tasty meats) were remarkable, the beef cuts were juicy and full of flavor. The chicken was well seasoned and incredible. Sausages, etc, all yummy. Nice selection of Brazilian beers. They even brought out beans, rice, and bananas to the table for us. Awesome place. Will definitely be back!

We came for our anniversary. They have a great selection of wines and meats plus a lovely atmosphere. Service was fast and very attentive (almost too attentive! We like to relax and just talk to each other for a while). Everyone did a fantastic job of making us feel welcome and special, and there was nothing lacking on their part.

This was one of the best restaurants I've been to. The salad bar was very fresh and the lobster bisque was incredible. The sides were good and complemented the meat very well. I was extremely impressed by the service. Our waters were always promptly refilled and the food servers came in a timely manner. I 100% recommend splurging on this place for a special occasion. I will definitely be going back,

Bottom Sirloin, Ribeye, Filet cut of meat needs to be changed. Was not very good.

Lamb chops good but didn’t get offered a lot on this. Had to request items a lot.

Picanha was good.

Akaushi meat was the best of course.

The restaurant is conveniently located in Southwest Houston so it is easy to get to for me. The salad bar is great and the grilled shrimp are a nice addition. The meat selection is similar to other Brazilian steak houses around town but they have special cuts usually offered sometime during the month. Very good meal
