                                                          Excellent experience. The service was outstanding. The food is what you would expect, multiple selections of meats, all cooked to with good precision. The bacon wrapped chicken, Brazilian sausage, and filet were very tasty. The lamb was a bit tough and the beef ribs were chewy. The salad option complemented the meal nicely. Highly recommend the Malbec. Well worth the cost and we will return.

                                                          We really loved the food and the servers who brought the meat/items to try were great. LOVED THE GRILLED PINEAPPLE and Sirloin cuts. The salad was nice, loved the mango salad. Our group enjoyed the rice, beans and paella. My biggest complaint was we were there for my husbands birthday. I told them no three times, so we could sing to him. The host and the waitress assured me each time they wouldn’t forget. They forgot about it. Not that it was the end of the world but it was the sole reason we were there that night. We ended up walking down to Cream for dessert and singing to him there.

                                                          Overall the service was great. The servers were attentive, except for 1 person who was I think trying to avoid refilling our drinks. The ambience is friendly but not romantic.

                                                          The food and drinks were good, the service not so much. We sat around 15 minutes before a server approached us after being seated. Then over 20+ minutes without getting offered meat. It wasn’t until I mentioned to the servers that we weren’t offered any meat selections that they all started showing up. By that time, it was too late and frankly overwhelmed since now they’re aware I wasn’t being served. We lost our appetite, it wasn’t our intention to eat salad at a Brazilian bbq restaurant. If you are going to this place, I would recommend you request to be seated near the bar/kitchen. That seemed to be the only place they serve.

                                                          Waited an hour after reservation time. Food is above average. The pineapple was the best thing about the meal, was there for about an hour and the only saw shrimp once. The cocktails were delicious, had a lot of alcohol.

You will not be left hungry with the endless cuts being offered consistently until you turn the dial on your table. Prefer over chains and cheaper! Bathrooms are clean and look newly remodeled. Highly recommend and we will be back.

                                                          The meal starts with a trip to a salad bar which has a large variety of choices. Then, servers come around to your table to slice off various meats and other items. Both the food and the service was first-rate. We had more than enough to eat. Our only concern was that the price seemed rather steep.

                                                          Wife and I went for the first time on Christmas Evening. Seated promptly, beverage orders taken immediately, and instructions given to go to "salad bar" and that waiter would be by later, along with the meat gauchos. Glad that we both went light on the salad bar as the meats that followed were practically non-stop and one even better than the one before. The Brazilian cut was a favorite, as was a parmesan-encrusted pork loin. Very friendly and helpful service by all. Did not have desert as they are not really pushed and no one is not full by the end of this meal. Very pleased all the way around!

                                                          Good place to eat if you're craving Brazilian BBQ. I would recommend this place over Fogo.

                                                          Oh my goodness! What an amazing experience! Thank you to the gaucho’s and the bbq master for taking care of us all night. My favorite dishes were the lamb, Filet Mignon, Shrimp, Beef wrapped in Bacon, Pork Loin with parmesan cheese, Top Sirloin and Picanha. All around amazing way to celebrate. Really appreciate one of the gaucho’s asking if we had any special requests. The extra lamb was delicious thank you Roger! All the meats are included for the fixed price so you don’t feel like you missed out.

                                                          The bar tender needs training. I ordered a martini with a twist (lemon twist) I got a martini with ice chunks and lime twist. It took two times to get the correct drink.

                                                          I loved this meal. So much delicious meat cooked to perfection. The salad bar had a lot of options and things to try. The sangria was great too. Service wasn't bad. The women's bathroom were not the cleanest about 2 hours after opening, so I would hate to eat there at the end of the night if that's a representation of how the bathrooms are all the time. There weren't any paper towels and there was also a confusingly worded sign telling me to put my toilet paper in the trash and not the toilet? Odd. The only reason I didn't give everything 5 stars.

                                                          We hadn't been to Taurinus since before the pandemic. Initially the staff attention was a bit slow, but once we were able to make our drink orders, we did not lack for offers to fill our plates with tasty meats and grilled pineapple (with cinnamon, which was surprisingly good). Definitely an excellent choice for big appetites. The carved rib and the bacon-wrapped filets were our favorites.

                                                          Service was A+. We arrived a little early before our reservation time and they had no problem seating us. Food was well prepared and tasted great !!

                                                          The beef was beautifully flavored and cooked medium rare to rare. The feijoada was excellent. It would have been nice to have a bit of farofa to top it with but no matter. All the staff members were very pleasant and helpful. It was very busy so the noise level was pretty high. We enjoyed our meals.
