    This is my first time at Estancia Brazilian Steakhouse and I will never go back. I have been to other churrasco style restaurants, in fact I have been trying different ones throughout the country and 1 international location for over 15 years. The staff at Estancia was running around like chickens with their heads cut off. The experience of this type of restaurant is to use your tongs to grab the meat off the skewer and onto your plate on more than one occasion the meat was basically thrown at me and I wasn't given a chance to even use my tongs (I know some items don't require use of tongs) but at one point a piece of flank was just thrown on my plate the blood splashed onto my clothing. At other points of my dinner my card sat on Green for 10 minutes and all the gauchos kept walking by not even asking if I was looking for a specific cut of meat or if I needed anything else. The table next to me was a very large group(about 20 people) the gauchos would only ask a few at the table(they all wanted the meats) if they wanted a specific cut and they would ignore the other half of the table or just was away when someone tried to get their attention for a specific cut.I was reminded why I keep going back to the same churrasco restaurant is because the service at their competitors is lacking far behind.

    This was my first time at a Brazilian Steakhouse state side. Although I'm glad to have experienced it, I wouldn't come back again. There was too much fat on the steaks and some were too chewy. I was disappointed with the lack of flavor on the chicken breasts too. I was expecting everything to be excellent and although some things were great, too many others were not. The ambiance is wonderful and the servers are very attentive however. We'll try another steakhouse next time to see how it compares.

    We attended with a mixed age group of eight. It is a typical Brazilian steakhouse set-up - a copious salad bar, side dishes for the table, and skewers of meat delivered to and sliced at the table. They seat sections of the restaurant at a time, so that the meat deliverers can efficiently focus on only one section of the restaurant at a time. This unexplained process means that if one eats more slowly than most in your section of the restaurant, your meat options are much more limited. We had folks who sampled very sparingly at the beginning of the meat service, ate slowly, and found it very difficult to get a little more meat. The staff were unfailingly willing to say that they would have the meat we wanted delivered immediately, but it did not happen until the request was made several times to several different people. So if you are a slow eater who wants a pleasant experience, take everything as soon as it is first offered, eat what you like and leave the rest. Do not assume that you can pace yourself and have only what you want approximately when you want it.

    Went for a birthday. Very solicitous service and they gave us a birthday dessert. Food was mostly delicious with a few items that had been out too long and dried out or gotten cold. The lamb was EXCELLENT as well as the picanha. I’d return.

    The service was great. Some of the food was a little dry the beef rib and some of the sirloin. I think the food comes too fast and is delivered food in a blur. I would give it three and a half stars.

    My wife and I celebrated our one year anniversary at Estancia. Although the food was great, the service left much to be desired. We've been to a few Brazilian steakhouses over the years, and were disappointed with the wait staff. I'm glad I didn't order a tea, because my drink was only refilled once. In addition, we sat for at least 15 minutes after our meal was completed before anyone spoke to us about ordering desert or getting our bill. I would give it another chance, but in all honesty Chama Gaúcha one of their competitors in San Antonio provides a better experience and is actually a bit cheaper.

    The service was excellent. Everyone on the wait staff was present, personable and professional. Very accommodating. I had the salad bar and found it OK. There was certainly a large number of options and all were beautifully presented. I found the flavors lacking with the exception of the chicken and Waldorf salads. The hot sides delivered to the table were tasty and interesting. The ones served from the chafing dishes were just OK, maybe a B-. I understand that this restaurant is for meat lovers and that is their focus, however the salad bar was no better than many I've been to despite having a number of items. It would be great if the items were more tasty - flavorful and unique. Thanks!
