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

Here, traditions of Brazilian cooking blend with Texas hospitality to create a lively atmosphere in an upscale setting. Your meal begins with a visit to our extravagant salad area where you can indulge in a wide array of seasonal roasted vegetables, fresh artisan breads, charcuterie, imported cheeses and other specialties.

Then enjoy the rodizio-style dining that has made us famous. An endless parade of gaucho servers visits your table with skewers of freshly grilled beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage carved directly onto your plate. It’s all served with authentic side dishes of garlic mashed potatoes, Brazilian cheese bread and sweet fried bananas.

To complement your meal, select from our award-winning collection of wines or traditional Brazilian bar creations. And don’t forget to treat yourself to one of our decadent à la carte desserts.

Food is pretty good. I had a reservation but didn’t get seated until about 40 minutes AFTER my reservation time. Server wasn’t good at keeping up with drink orders.

Food was good! If you like protein and all you can eat - you will love this place. All red meat is served medium rare but they will fix it to your liking...just ask! Took my seniors out of a nice dinner and everyone enjoyed it

The place was very nice inside, and everyone had good behavior. The staff were nice but were extremely slow in bringing food to the table. Some of the meat was an absolute treat, I can't deny that they had some very good dishes. Also the Soup was wonderful. Though half or more of the meats I was told it was around medium, and then when i go to eat it, it turns out to be rare or well done, which very few people like either of those. You may think I am being harsh, but I believe for 45 dollars a plate, you should be a bit more attentive with service and cooking of your foods.

Went on St. Paddys day which was on a Sunday.
It was clear that they had a "limited" menu and "limited "staf" that day.
Bringing out meet was going extremely slow, and certain cuts was not available even though the waiter told us that he requested them from the grill!
In addition the waiter did not feel that it was important to fill our ice tea only other drink after water which are refilled at Texas de Brazil.
When asked if there was a limited price for the limited meet service, we where told NO, same price as any other day!

Went with 9 others (5 had never been), seated promptly, greeted by servers promptly BUT we had to request that both our servers at least 5 times send over the guys with the meat. I was embarrassed as I had bragged about how awesome this place was. Our server even couldn’t believe how much time it was taking. We were there celebrating my 5 year cancer free anniversary. My daughter in law ordered a slice of pecan pie which took 15 minutes to arrive & was frozen. Left it on the table.

Meat service was extremely slow and very poor service. We spent more time waiting than we did actually eating. At one point it took more than 15 minutes to get meat service while our card was flipped "green". The waitress even submitted orders for our table and the manager stopped by several times to ask but we still did not receive any service. There were several times that every table around us got served multiple times by the same person while that said person just skipped past our table. There were several requests for specific items and still received no service. We would rather take our business to another restaurant as this was a pathetic display of customer service.

Our night was not as expected. Our views were full of food on the floor, dustpans, overflowing trash cans, and a cluttered checkin desk. Most of the meat was well done and the deliveries were few and far between. The only positive thing was the desserts and our great server Christian. A night of celebration was instead full of distractions.

The salad bar was delicious! There was a variety of meat that was really good, but there was often a bit of a wait before more meat was brought to the table. We had to ask twice for beef as the servers seemed to skip us which i’m Sure was just because they were busy. They could improve getting their parties seated closer to reservation times.

Very disappointed. The restaurant was very busy and we were seated about 1/2 hour past our reservation. We could live with that however it was downhill from there. In the past the meat was always very good however today the cuts all tasted like charcoal. There are too many other choices to try and take a chance on this restaurant again.

On a positive note our server, Laura, was fantastic.

First time there. We had reservations for 5:15pm on a Saturday night. We were seated at 5:45pm. Not a big deal. Food and service were great. Only draw back was that we were seated next to the wait station. That area is very busy. I would recommend for a great experience.

Our first two servings of meat tasted very good and we were pleased with the quality and selection. However, as the evening progressed our ending servings of meat were not as good as the first. This was surprising because the first rounds were wonderful.

The salad bar was amazing. A salad lovers dream.

The first few times I went was right after the opening, it was great. Nice ambiance and mood.. This time that I went was horrible, food was all over the floor, we were sat next to the server station and every time a server walked by they knocked into my chair, their were kids crying and it was so loud we couldn’t even hear the server. This restaurant has turned into an over priced buffet... I will not be going back.

The food was good. Salad bar was all we ordered and was told it was 25 a person. The waiter pushed to have meat way too hard even sending numerous people with meat to us trying to get us to have some which we did not. Could not get prices on drinks so we ordered a total of 4 Samual Adam's beers and received a bill of over $93.00

After leaving I saw he charged us 30 a piece for the salad bar. I regret tipping him 20% to try to force food on us, give us wrong prices and harassing us with meats.

I have a lot of food intolerances. The manager came out and went through what I could eat on the salad buffet and they separated the meat they cooked for me so other sauces didn’t fall on my food. I really appreciated that. Unfortunately there was a very limited selection of foods on the buffet as I can’t have canola or soy and they use a canola blended with olive oil for their marinades and dressings. I brought my olive oil and vinegar and had the asparagus and lettuce and bacon for a salad. I can’t eat nightshades and their vegetables had peppers mixed in. They were super nice and the meats were really good! My husband enjoyed all of the options!

I make reservations for a reason. So I don’t wait in the lobby for centuries to be seated. I had a bunch of clients from Germany and literally I think we waited a while because the “whole” party had to be present even though the restaurant was empty. Well once the whole party showed up we still waited a long time to be seated. Then the gauchos kept skipping our table. The food taste was amazing I think this restaurant could have such a successful business but the service is not good. The greeters are rude and unprofessional! My clients were disappointed and I was mortified. Then they close at 9ish? There were still clients and once we walked out the ride greeter commented to her Co worker loud enough and on purpose so I could hear “we are getting out too late of this damn restaurant” if I was the manager or owner I would be furious because the restaurant is in such a prime location and if they want to be anything like the famous fogo de chao that they could totally be better then them, they need to hire people that want to do their job. Specially through Detroit’s renaissance. Our server was actually amazing! But this is a team effort not just one persons game. Again the food is amazing so the cooks are doing their jobs is just there is no customer service unfortunately and I will not be returning or bringing clients there ever again unless something is done.

Tried to use my $25 coupons but only let me use one. Explained we were there last week and someone had taken from my car at work. Found on ground at work. Would not work with us. Only four tables occupied so meat was not as well prepared as normal. Over cooked or maybe from day before.

Our server was good but overall the restaurant was extremely understaffed. Lots of meats we never tried because they didn't come around (Ribs, bacon wrapped filet, filet, sausage). Wife didn't like her second drink but tasted like bubble gum and a lot of vodka but they didn't take it off the bill. Coffees came well after we finished our dessert because our server didn't know how to make a cappuccino we watch tell her they wouldn't help her. It's not expensive ($45 person but includes everything but drinks) however they need to be staffed better to get all the meats to all the tables and provided a better level of service. Again not our servers fault lack of help on the floor, the manager also looked like a deer in headlights.

The food was as good as it usually is, once seated the service was better than I've had in there before, unfortunately I forget our server's name, but she was outstanding. The problem was, we weren't seated until 45 minutes after our reservation time. That's absurd! There were people walking in with no reservation being told they would be seated around the same time as us. We asked the status at one point and were specifically told there were (4) grouls ahead of us, (6) groups were seated before we were, and when asked they said "well a couple of them had 4 people so they took 4 top tables". What about my reservation?? My time is valuable, and while this isn't a deal breaker for going back, I will certainly be visiting other Brazilian Steakhouses in lieu of this one as opposed to it being my "go-to" from now on. Too many places out there that still put an emphasis on customer service to have to put aside like I was.

My reservation was for 6:45 pm I was not seated until almost 8pm. I do not understand the point of making reservations if you still have to wait on all the people who walk in before you. Reservations mean nothing in this restaurant. Once we were seated we did not receive our bananas or mashed potatoes and was not asked if we wanted anything to drink.
