We came here for your 9-year wedding anniversary. The food was okay. The salad bar was very good, but some of the meat was a little over-cooked and tough for my taste. We've been to other Brazilian steakhouses, and this one fell in the middle of the pack. The lighting was too dark.

I do have to point out though that the service was excellent. Every single person who came to our table - from the waitstaff to the manager - was so nice and helpful. It was definitely one of the best services I've had.

Service was poor - except at the end when a new server took over. Half of their selection we never saw even though we asked for more servers making the round by our table. Salad choice was not very good either. Not friendly - perhaps an off day for them but not good experience for me.

We had our invited guests for a convention and went to Taurinus for dinner. Everyone had a great time. There was plenty to choose from (and there is a no-meat option, but really, why go here if you don’t eat meat). The noise level was very conducive to conversations around the table without feeling like you were shouting. And of course the drinks were great!

Made a reservation 2 weeks in advance and received a phone call to confirm the night before. When we got there the day of, the person seating said we were not on the list but would take us because they were slow. We then got seated next to the electrical room... Yay. The servers were polite and the food was overall good. The best meats were their parmesan crusted pork, sirloin, and bacon wrapped chicken. They were cooked perfectly!

We always have a good dinner at Taurinus. The selection of meats brought to the table is excellent, and the sides bar has a lot of variety and everything is good. They do have salads, and they're great, but they also have hard boiled eggs in a delicious sauce, chicken salad, hot sides, and a wonderful potato salad, in addition to other sides.

You can park across the street in the Cityview lot for a fee, or there is on-street parking frequently on the little side streets nearby.

This restaurant is identical to Fogo De Chao and Espetos. Seems to be a popular theme lately. I'd go again if I'm in the area.

This visit, there were not many people there. We also notice many of the meats were over cooked, maybe because of lack of people there.

Best Brazilian churrasco in the Bay Area, hands down. The chicken hearts (which is a shame many people don't try) are perfectly cooked and marinated. Service is very attentive.

We came for a little celebratory dinner and were SO impressed by the entire experience! From the table bites (polenta fries, pao de queijo, fried bananas) to the salad bar to the meats, everything was fantastic. The Syrah and Merlot were fantastic. As for the meat selection, the standouts were picanha, chicken hearts, beef ribs, and grilled pineapple. So yummy! Much better than Fogo de Chao, Espetus, and Pampas. Can't wait to return!

So my boyfriend and I finally tried this place for the first time and it was AMAZING! The service was great. The place wasn’t far from us, so the drive was not that long. But the best thing of all is their food. OMG, I can not explain to you how good the food is. The meat just melts in your mouth. If you haven’t tried this place, you definitely need to. I will definitely be coming back here!
