Salad bar was nice with great choices. Some of the “filet” had hard gristle/fat. Never had that experience with filet before. Other cuts meh. Lots of staff running around but our drinks took a long time (we were table of 4), my drink was not cold. Meat servers passed by us constantly even though I made eye contact etc. Never did get chicken. Server brought our dessert to go (we didn’t ask for it that way). Don’t mind shelling out for nice dinner but this was not worth it.

We have eaten at Texas de Brazil several times and this time we were equally pleased like our past visits. The salad bar is probably the most uniquely delicious and diverse that we have ever experienced. All of the items are listed on the website menu. The lobster bisque, part of the salad bar, is exceptional. The meats, top sirloin, filet mignon, seasoned chicken and pork sausage among others are top restaurant quality. As it was my birthday I had the complimentary Creme Brûlée. addition, the wait staff were especially gracious and attentive. All in all it was a delightful dining experience.

When we arrived we were greeted and seated promptly, our server came over introduced himself got our drink order and explained the process. They seated a party of 12 next to us so after that we were not given much attention with the meat. We have been here many times and this was by far the worst experience we’ve had. The salad bar was stocked and very good. My wife ordered 2 Cocktail drinks doubles which came in a tall skinny glass which was half filled with ice and the other half filled with lime slices $21.50 each was a little pricey for what you got

Service was extreamly slow and took at least 30 to 40 minutes for meat to even come by the table. We arrived at 555 and did not leave until 755

Not good buffet items. 170.00 for 1 adult and 2 children. The food was not that good for the price. It was a 1 and done. Plus the service was very slow.

All honesty I go out to many restaurants and I never complain but in all honesty this was one of the worst experiences I had in a long time . It took 30 mins to get my drink from the bar due to the bartender calling in that night . Our waitress did not explain the process or tell us we could go up for salad bar etc . The meat the came out was dry and on top of that there were only 3 different meats we we’re offered . As we were leaving we saw other meats which we were not offered during our dinner .
For the prices that were charged to quality I received was awful .

Short staffed, Smokey and cold because outside door was open because of smoke. Food was cold and SLOW to come out. Not staffs fault, management stood around watching but not picking up any slack. 200.00 is a bit much for the quality

So, used to LOVE this place. My family and I would go any time we were celebrating. However, it has gone severely downhill. Meats are overcooked now, not the medium-rare as they once were. Service was horrendous. I understand that there are staff shortages, but forgetting to put drink orders in, not refilling water, waiting until our meal is half over to bring out appetizers (the cheese bread, bananas and mashed potatoes), has more to do with incompetence than lack of staff. At the very least, management should make decisions on how many people to sit, if there in fact is a shortage of staff. It used to be that you always had a full plate, as the staff were always asking if you wanted more. Now, you practically have to flag the staff down with your little card.

Unfortunately, due to the circumstances above, I will be bringing my money elsewhere, and I encourage you all to do the same.

Most of the meat was charred to bits, all of the pork was extremely dry but the leg of lamb was very good. The first bit of filet we tried was black and not edible but the second was okay it didn’t really taste like a cared for filet. The room was also full of smoke the entire time and the salad bar was okay at best. We had a coupon but I definitely wouldn’t say it was worth the normal $50 per person price tag.

Lamb chops are a separate item now. Very disappointed but understand. Leg of lamb was superb.
Many non-meat choices at the salad bar.

Doesn’t include lamb Chops anymore, no where does it state that, and then I was told it was 9.00 more if I wanted them?? Really no plans to ever return, who’s going to pay $50 for dried up chicken and 3 dollar sausage? Not me! What a joke and a total waste of money

We regularly go to this restaurant and most times things are great. Today was really a disappointment though as we went for the special holiday menu. The special items (stuffing, sweet potato casserole), and the typical au gratin potatoes were cold (not even warm). I later found out the hot table needs repair (perhaps set up some sterno burners in the meantime?), but what was also disappointing is that practically all of the meat that came out was barely warm. The fact that the meat wasn't warm, combined with the grease gave me a stomach ache after eating. I did bring this to their attention, but it didn't seem to be too much of a concern. I will say that normally things are much better, but today definitely missed the mark.

False advertisement as the restaurant was supposed to be serving the dinner menu all day and customers were charged the dinner menu price. My family had an early afternoon reservation but we were told some of the meat wouldn’t be available until 4pm.
