Steakhouse
Texas de Brazil is no ordinary steakhouse. It’s a dining experience like no other.

Here, traditions of Brazilian cuisine blend with generous Texas hospitality to create a lively atmosphere in an upscale setting. Your meal begins with a visit to our extravagant salad area – a feast for your eyes as well as your palate. Indulge in a wide array of seasonal roasted vegetables, fresh artisan breads, charcuterie, imported cheeses and other specialties.

Next, an endless parade of gauchos visit your table with skewers of freshly grilled meats carved tableside. Choose from perfectly seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, cooked over a wood charcoal fire the way cowboys of Southern Brazil have prepared it for generations. It’s all served with authentic side dishes and to further complement your meal, select from our award-winning collection of wines or traditional Brazilian bar creations.

Welcome to the height of fine dining. Welcome to Texas de Brazil.

Definitely off their game tonight. Meats were overcooked and the server was not refilling drinks. I must say that the bartender was awesome. We are regulars and love this restaurant. If they were consistent they would be one of the best restaurants.

So disappointed with the visit. Service was poor. Fillet mignon never came to our table. The flank steak guy dump the entire stripe of rare meat in my plate in my plate while I only ask for a small slice. Too lazy to cut? That’s a easy way out. Recommend you to try something else if you are looking for a decent experience

Delicious food perfect for those who like meat and are willing to try a bunch of different things. I highly recommend getting the chimichurri sauce from the salad bar to have with the bread.

I have visited your restaurant at least 10 x. Usually the food is very good. For some reason this time many of the Meats were very tough and grizzly. I’m hoping the the next time it is better.

Went for my sons birthday, told them it was his 16th birthday and nothing took place... we heard a couple of birthdays being honored by the restaurant around us. I personally waited 20 minutes for a glass of wine and the rest of the table wasn’t offered any other beverages except water. There were flies EVERYWHERE! We were also sat in front of the kitchen and all you could hear was kitchen noise , which there were other tables available. Sat near waitstaff and listened to them trash talk their tables. Took them forever to pick up the check so we could pay. Just isn’t as good as other TDB’s I’ve been to. What a waste of money on such an occasion.... not to mention no birthday mention and it was his 16th.

We have eaten at many Texas de Brazil’s and we can count on Albany’s to be perfectly seasoned meat over the past 5 years they have been open! Always perfect like Memphis, all the Orlando’s, Miami, Las Vegas. But Hartford CT needs help...Oscar!!!

The food was great, however the service was sub-par. The server returned to our table on multiple occasions regarding our drink orders. Had he written the orders down it may have been better. More than once we were told the bar was out of stock on things on their menu. One of the drinks came out completely wrong and two others we are still not sure what was wrong with them aside from the fact that there definitely was not the type of alcohol in our drinks that we ordered. After the entire night I was embarrassed to have suggested the place to the family to begin with.

Texas de Brazil definitely knows how to feed you. If you go with the less expensive "salad bar only" option, you will not go home hungry. The salad bar selection is big, and the quality of the options is high. Green salads, cured meats, cold shrimp, cheeses, vegetables, bread, maki,.... Plus with it, there are hot selections including au gratin potatoes, rice, beans, lobster bisque. If you've got the appetite, do the full meal with the meats. Unless you tell them to stop, waiters keep coming to the table with skewers of meat and serve you whichever you want and how much you want. There are many types of beef, plus a couple kinds each of chicken and lamb, and sausage. And as if you needed it, they bring cheesy rolls, garlic mashed potatoes, and roasted bananas to the table. Not cheap, but a great meal.

Meat was often overcooked. I received brown steak 3 times. The chicken and pork were dry and overcooked. Filet Mignon wrapped in bacon was well done.

Charging $2.50 per refill of soft drink should be a crime. Drinks only cost that much when there are free refills. 8oz of soda cost you like 5 cents and you're charging that much for each serving!?!

RIDICULOUS!

In the past we have enjoyed the sampling of meats presented by the gouchos. This last visit was a bit disappointing. The parmesan pork had good flavor but was over cooked. Just about all of the beef cuts given to us were rare when we asked for medium and the cuts all had excessive ligaments and silver skin still in tacked in the meat. The extra fat on the outside we can handle. Unchewable contents within the meat isn't good eats. It seemed maybe the quality of the meat has lessened. The cook seemed fine, other then needing a few more mins.

We made reservations through Open Table and received a few emails confirming our reservation. Still when we arrived there was no reservation under our name. The hostess even showed me the list of reservations and we were not listed. This was our 30 year old sons birthday celebration so it was stressful to start it out that way. Food was fantastic but over priced and service felt rushed and hectic.

Honestly we will be back but it will be for the salad bar which was actually better than the meats. The filet was well done and the lamb was pretty much raw (not rare) the first time they came around. All of the meats rated together I would say are a 3-4 out of five. The top sirloin was very good as was the flank steak. All of the pork and chicken was dry and overcooked.
