Welcome to the height of fine dining. Welcome to Tex
My experience was overall a good one. It did take a little to long to get the meat out in between Gaucho’s. Took a little bit to get more drinks and had to ask for a plate. Our server was courteous and it was a little pricey. Definitely not Fogo De Chao.
Despite having a reservation, we still waited 30 minutes before being seated. Food and service was good.
Service was mediocre at best. The lobster bisque was lukewarm, so wsrs the potatoes. Had to play 20 questions to get a glass of wine. Didn't get a choice...no wine list. They put us in a corner and had to call a server over in order to get the.eaiters to bring over the varieties of meat..I have been here twice befote & it was grest. Would probably not go back with the cost for what we received.
Waiters kept missing our table on their meat rounds. Meats were just okay, nothing great. The filet was good.
Great food, drinks, and overall experience. All about the lamb chops!
My dining experience was awesome and the food was delicious!
We made reservations at 5:15p but had to wait 45 minutes until we were sat. What is the point in having reservations if you make your customers wait that long? After being seated it took our waiter another 15 minutes to come over to our table. From what we saw he only had two other tables. French fries??? What's up with the ballpark crinkle-cut french fries??? So low quality. It turns a nice restaurant into an Applebees or Chilis. I understand we are in a pandemic but the salad bar situation is a mess. We were only given one card to check what we wanted so our waited piled everything onto one plate. The meat was ok. Nothing special. It took the servers 20 minutes in between the different meats to come around so that was annoying. You would get one slice of meat and then have to sit there for about 20 minutes until another meat choice came around. The quality of food and service has gone down so much at this location. Again, I understand we are in a pandemic but other restaurants in Birmingham have been able to keep the same quality of service and food during. Not sure what is going on with this Texas de Brazil location.
Always a great experience! Great food, staff and service! Definitely a go to when we're in town.
It was AMAZING!!! THE food, service, dim environment and hospitality of the entire staff!! The drinks were a great price and good just like I like them. I am definitely going back!!
Excellent service with amazing food! Always a wonderful experience!
Be prepared to wait even if you have a table time because they also have a waiting list that apparently gets seated before people with table times. And managers attitudes are crap.
We have reservations at 7 PM and got there 15 minutes early. We did not get seated until 745. With current times in the situation we understand some reason for the delay, plus there was a very large party of medical professionals that stayed for quite a long time that I don’t think was planned. I was disappointed that the lamb chops We’re not available unless you paid for them separately, but they did have lots of other meats including different cuts of lamb readily available. This will always be one of my favorite places to eat.
Waiter forgot he had our table. The only time our water was refilled was when we had to ask the hostess to refill our water. Our salad bar menu was never picked up and filled. We had to ask the manager for our ticket and the food was sub par. We have dined at Texas de Brazil many times but this was by far the worst experience that we have ever had.
Every staff member we interacted with was an absolute delight, especially our server
Highly disappointed in our experience at Texas de Brazil. First of all, we had a reservation for 7:45. We were finally sat at 8:35 pm, after everyone who arrived after our reservation time had already been sat. Once we were sat, the manager took our drink orders, and the salad order (salad bar was shut down to guests due to Covid). Finally, at 9:10 pm, 35 minutes after being sat, we finally got a waitress, who came over and said "I think I'm supposed to be your waitress?" like a question. She had been waiting on the table next to us the whole time. Anyways, besides those service issues, the selection was nowhere near what it shows on their menu. We were offered picanha, bacon wrapped chicken, sausage, parmesan pork loin, flank steak, and parmesan drumsticks. No lamb, pork ribs, beef ribs, filet, or numerous other items were ever brought around. They were out of almost all the desert options as well. My wife and I ended up paying $105 for dinner to maybe eat 6oz of meat each, and the equivalent of a small side salad. While everything we actually did eat was good, I could have gone to the nicest steakhouse in this town for that price. We will not be back, especially to the one here in Birmingham.
We were very disappointed with our visit. We sat and had nothing but meats served to us until the end of our meal. They finally brought out all the salads and veggies after we were full from the meats! The lamb chops had been taken off rotation and that was the only thing 2 of us liked! Our drinks were never served on time. We understand with Covid things are different but, the waitress could only do so much and did not have enough support to be able to get everything to us! And on top of it all, we could not take anything with is when we left so most of the veggies were wasted. If this is the way it is going to be, you need more servers or a better way. For as much as it cost to eat here, the service should be top notch!
Server took forever to bring anything. The gauchos passed only a few times. Waited 1 hr after our reservation time. Instead of mash potatoes and bananas they gave us French fries. Was not the best experience.
It’s pointless to not only have a reservation, but also arrive 15 mins earlier as requested, if you will not be seated until 20 min after your reservation. Service from out waitress was excellent but the food service was very very slow. Normally you feel overloaded, but they just didn’t show up with the meat. We had to ask for meat to come around again because we only had maybe four guys come once each. We indicated that it was my wife’s birthday and our reservation was for only 2 yet we were seated at 8 top table beside large business gathering. Just too expensive to have a so so experience. Might be a while before we return.
We were really unhappy with the quality of the meat. We go often, and have never been disappointed like we were on our anniversary. The meats were chewy, tough, and not seasoned as well. Not limited to the steak either. The service was slow to come around and we went without water or check ins longer than what was reasonable. Really both came away unhappy which was so different than usual.
First I didn’t change their website that They were not opening at 4:30 due to Covid for happy hour. We get there, ask for a Bud Light, I was told there was none cold. Ordered a Brazilian beer, way to come back and told us it was one left in the back so I better order it now. Advertise for a lot of meats to come to the table, we had about five or six. The best thing about our whole visit was the way it was fabulous and trying to do his best under the circumstances.
Great environment for a date night. Staff is excellent and the food is amazing.
Food was great! They have the best of the best team ♥️. Most definitely coming back.
Food was great we really enjoyed are time there.
Good good good good
Nice restuarant! We enjoyed getting to try all the food. Our waitress was very good. I missed being able to select my salad from the extensive salad bar and some of the meat was too rare for my taste. Overall a good time was had by all.
The pandemic has really had a profound effect on service at this usually reliably entertaining restaurant. We waited an unusual 10-15 minutes after seating before our plates were placed and another 5 minutes before a limited number of meats were offered. Never offered or received refills on our beverages (Water & Unsweet Tea). Customers are prohibited from the bar area and must rely on service staff to retrieve any desired items and bring them to your table. We will return only when the restaurant can returns to some semblance of normalcy.
We went for my boyfriend birthday and they gave him the wrong margarita , they were late to give his lamb chops and they were just rushing things . When we first sat down they put us all the way in the back at a table that seats 6 people and it was only 2 of us .
The entire meal was delicious. Of course, the meat was the highlight of the meal. My favorite was the picanha- it was seasoned and seared perfectly. You definitely won’t leave hungry!
We had to wait outside after arriving 10 minutes early for our reservations at 4:00 due to COVID which was fine and understandable. It was a bit odd with the restrictions They had to make our salad from the salad bar but they made it very enjoyable we will go back
slightly over priced for what you are getting in service & selection in menu.
It was nice and our waiter was awesome. We had a gift card so probably too pricey to go back but maybe on a special occasion.
Our experience was great. Even with Pandemic rules in place the food and service was excellent. We look forward to dining there again.
Our server, Efrain, was the best server we have ever had here! He was very attentive to us and made sure we never ran out of any food or drink. We used our VIP card, which made the value of this delicious meal a real deal. Thank you for a wonderful evening!
Always an amazing experience at Texas de brazil! I've never had bad food or service at this place! It's one of my favorite places to hang out with friends and family ♡
We were not impressed! All meat offered was tough & chewy. Everything tasted the same, NO flavor at all. The ONLY thing that was interesting was the fact that you could try different meats. We really expected to be blown away. For the price we paid, this was 1st & last time experience!
I made reservations for my Husband's Birthday for 09/12/2013 for 8:00 pm
When we to the restaurant we went to front desk 8:03pm we were informed that
they were running a little behind. I expected the time frame to about 10-15 minutes
due to a reservation was required for specific time slots. Well to say the least we
were finally seated at our table @ 8:39 pm. My husband is Veteran and Texas de
Brazil offers discount to Veterans with party of (4) to say the least at the end of the
dinner my husband shows his military veteran ID to the waiter, 5 minutes later a young
lady comes to our table to ask to see my husband's Military Veterans ID again, I guess
she did not believe that we really warranted the Military discount. If she needed the ID
why not sent the waiter back for it, He was a very good waiter. She came charging as
if we would lie about something as respectful as that. The food was good, Our waiter was very good, This particular visit did not live up to the the good things we had previously heard about this restaurant.
Even with COVID, the experience was wonderful. Our waitress was pleasant and the head Gaucho was informative about the culture behind the food. My husband and I had a wonderful time.
Our waiter Efrain was amazing, knowledgeable and made our first experience wonderful. We went for my 40th Birthday dinner and he made it very special!
Nice, clean restaurant. Friendly staff. Enjoyed the experience
