We had a good experience . The food was great and wait staff were good. It would have been excellent, but they over looked the occasion, we were their for. We made reservations with the tag of a Birthday celebration. Why ask when making a reservation if the person is not going to fussed over.

We went on a Saturday evening at 7:30. There was a full house. We were seated right at the opening to the mall side seating area. Not the preferred section to be sure, there was noise from the mall in addition to the dining room itself making it difficult to hear the servers. Our server was pleasant and efficient however.
My real disappointment was the meat. The medium rare beef was so rare it was inedible to me. The chicken was good albeit room temperature at best.
The low point of the evening was a piece of tin foil in the food. I brought it to the attention of the manager with barely a response.
To me my money was not well spent.

Service was spotty. We received the same rotation of carvers. We missed the filet. The top sirloin was well done not medium rare as explained. The beef rib only came around once. The leg of lamb, flank steak, and lamb chops were good.

We told the waitress twice to please bring steak out for our kid. It took forever just for a steak to come out. He would eat it. Then have to wait about 10-15 for another steak to come around. This time it wasn't worth the money. My kid got 2 pieces of steak and nothing was coming out to us fast enough.

The food was very good with one exception. The filet mignon was overdone and was similar to pot roast. The lamb chops were a bit overdone as well. Enjoyed the salad selection as well as lobster bisque. Would return for another dinner.

We love going to Texas de Brazil. Have been to the Albany one several times and also one in Florida and Virginia. This time it was for Veterans Day and more crowded than usual so it was hard to get different meats to come around to our table. Next time will request table closer to where they cook.

So the food was good, but the service was not. Less than warm welcome upon arrival to the restaurant. It took about 30 minutes to get 2 drinks which is unacceptable. The Margarita my wife ordered was so strong she could not drink it. I tried it and it was disgusting. My waitress never offered to get us another drink and it was not taken off the bill. I would not recommend as the service was not stellar.

We went for our anniversary dinner. The hostess was new and apparently confused on where we were sitting. She walked us around and around until we were in the vicinity of a few empty tables..I finally asked if we could soy at "this one" and pointed..I think she felt relieved and was replied "ya, I'll let them know you're switching tables". I was just glad to be at a table. Our server was very nice and the salad bar was fresh and tasty. However we had to wait quite some time, multiple times, for anyone to come over with the meat carvings. We actually had to ask our server twice to please send them over to us. Finally at the end of our meal we were offered dessert but declined. We then told them we had a coupon for $20 off. I was told it would be accepted prior to the visit and then the server pointed out the fine print that says no Saturdays or holidays. Why would they not tell me that when the reservation was made specifically on a Saturday for our anniversary?? Also, dissatisfied that our anniversary was not acknowledged. Overall the food was tasty and the server was nice but definitely some kinks to be worked out there.

We went for the first time early on a Sunday. Everything was excellent. We sat near the front so we could watch mall shoppers. We returned on a Friday night a few weeks later. Our waiter was extremely busy as well as others. We sat near the entrance. The food was excellent both nights. On Friday we had to ask for the various meets that didn't make the rounds to us. Once we got them, we got them! 5 stars. The manager was on top of his job making sure everything was ok

Always a great experience when we go to Texas de Brazil. Excellent staff! Manager gave us no issue with our coupons from our previous visit(we did a donation to receive $5 coupons). All around it was an excellent experience and date night. Well worth the price! Can’t wait to go back!!!

Waiters kept stopping at all the tables around ours with the carved meat but hardly ever ours. We did have a table of 4 where only one at our table (my husband) wanted meat. He had his card flipped but they kept walking past. He got a couple of them to stop but that’s it. Food was good and we will come back and hopefully that doesn’t happen next time.

Not as good as Fogo De Chao, the meat was cooked only one way; they told us medium rare but in many cases it was too well done. Not as many meat choices as Fogo and the salad bar is not as extensive . Overall though, the dinner was fine. The meat was tasty. The server was attentive. The wine choices were ok. Not crazy about the table being almost in the mall, that really doesn't add anything to the atmosphere. The separation of glass would make dining there much nicer.

Had no idea what to expect. Menu information from the website left a lot to be desired. Huge salad bar could be a meal in itself. Our server was excellent. It’s all you can eat and they’ll keep coming as long as you want. It was almost overwhelming with so many different cuts coming all at once. Beef, pork and lamb were good but the chicken was pretty dry. Garlic mashed potatoes were creamy and delicious. The house Merlot was very good compared to the other selections and price points. Not sure our appetite covered the $44 per plate, but we’ll go back knowing what to expect next time.

The food was phenominal, not too loud, but not awkwardly quiet. Our server was fantastic, but when we were finished we wound up waiting at least 45 to 50 minutes for the bill to come when it was made clear we were finished, which got trying. This was the second time I've been and y he second time it took almost an hour to get the bill. But while you're eating service is excellent...it's just when you want to leave that it becomes a problem. Even still, I love the place, they just have to work on getting checks out to people way more timely.
