It was a birthday date for my husband. We loved it! Our waiter did a great job and made sure we are aware what is going on. We are deaf. So it’s really nice and special for us! We will come back!

Celebrating my son‘s birthday, waiter must’ve been new or an experienced, quite a long wait for drinks and keeping up with salad bar orders, etc. Also not as much fun to try to order from the salad bar from a checklist on a piece of paper, that experience is not as nice as just building at yourself

Food quality was not what we've experienced in the past. Had to wait longer than usual for meats to be presented at numerous points in our meal. We flagged waiters down on several occasion to requests additional drinks or food, they were not as attentive as usual especially considering the location barely had 10 tables full. Overall let down

So amazing! Best meal I've had in months. The meat's were all tender and delicious. Salad bar was so good I'd go just to have salad only!
We will be back.

My wine was served in a dirty glass. Food was mediocre at best. Had to request different types of meat otherwise they would come around with the same meats. Super loud - hard to have convos. Very dark, could have used candles on the tables.

Everything was outstanding. The buffet salad bar, all the meats, everything excellent. This was my 2bd experience, I was at the Memphis TdeB in September. Will try the New York restaurant soon.

Everything was quite good. But why would you serve instant powdered potatoes in a restaurant like this? I took one bite of the potatoes and it reminded me of KFC when I was a kid. Disgusting! Whoever made the decision to serve instant powdered potatoes should be fired immediately! This decision was extremely idiotic! Those potatoes made the rest of the meal seem corporate and cheap! It was very disappointing!

Texas de Brazil is normally a great experience. This visit not so much. The salad bar is not self serve and they dont bring what you ask for, also just dump it all on top of everything else. Potato Salad in the green salad is pretty gross. Also we had two small kids with us, asked for a few extras from the salad bar for the kids we got one mozzerella ball the kids to share and 4 pickles. I paid 23.99 and $5 for the kids. Did not get the moneys worth. Now for the meats, we had to kee asking to have them brought over keot passing our table, what we did get was always the edge and overdone tastef like charcoal or over salted. Asked the server for an inside piece for the kids so they could chew it and he gave me a look them cut the burn edge off for them.

The steak was great when we could get a gaucho to bring us some. The picanha steak is our favorite. We had a hard time getting a gaucho to come to our table with the picanha and filet even though we asked our waiter to send them over numerous times. Love the au gratin potatoes!!

I have been to Texas De Brazil a number of times over a course of 5 years and this was the worst experience I have ever had. To start the way everyone was seated for social distancing did not make sense. There were little groups of people all sitting next to each other with plenty of room to space out and we were not. Do not have social distancing without distancing people. The server was very hard to hear when he spoke to us. For the salad bar we had to fill out what we wanted and the server would retrieve what we wanted which is fine but it took way too long to get it. I would say at least 30 minutes and our drinks about 20 minutes. The food was either over salted or had a terrible flavor. Only one meat actually tasted as it should. We went at 7:45 on New Years. With understanding it is a holiday you would think the service would be better than ever. I was mistaken. I am hopeful the next time we go things will bee better off. I mean I am one to usually not be so picky but when I am used to having great service and was given mediocre service it needs to be brought up. I would recommend this place but cautiously.

This location is going down fast. the server was late, rude, spill water on me. the salad bar is now with a menu. we missed one salad, the other three had the wrong stuff. I told server about it and he was talking back. after one hour, meat showed up and we were completely ignored. we had a reservation for 4 and they sat us in a table for two. Manager came over. but, the service never recovered. The wine bottle we wanted from menu was out. One of the meat server knocked my utensil and I asked for a replacement. never got one. $300 for 4 people was waste of my money. They did not even say sorry or offer something to comp. Don't go to the city center location in Houston.

This location never disappoints! We have been several times and this time was just as amazing even with all the covid restrictions in place. Our server, Luis, did a fantastic job! We filled out cards for our salad bar requests since it was an “open salad bar” due to covid and all 5 of our salads came out quickly and exactly as we had ordered. The meat coming around was delicious and always plenty of options. We will be back!

Due to COVID you can’t visit the food bar so you check off items and they fix your plate and they were SO SLOW doing this. Since this was my whole meal (no meat for me) I really wish they would have mentioned this on their website. Waiter asked my husband if he could pay cash for tip, said it was “easier”, uh no. Final check also charged me for the meat portion which I did not get. If waiter had paid more attention he would have been WELL AWARE. Whole process was a cluster, little to no attention and on Christmas Day. Won’t be back.

Service was very slow, like one thing at a time and sit there for 5-10 minutes with nothing to eat slow. The salads took nearly 20 minutes to prepare after ordering before they came to the table and they came one at a time only, not the whole table. Several times we ran out of drink and sat for several minutes without even water. The servers often skipped tables with the meat. It was a very frustrating meal on Christmas Day!

I thought the restaurant was really pretty. The food was good, not amazing but good. It was our office holiday dinner, there were 8 of us. The service I thought was terrible. As soon as we sat down we ordered a salad, before salads even got to the table we were bombarded by meat skewers, even though our cards were turned to to red. Our salads came pretty quick but the meats just kept coming really fast, I felt rushed as I wanted to eat my salad first then my main course. Once I finished my salad barely anyone came back by to bring any meat, the waiter disappeared, and forget getting your waters refilled or ordering another drink. It was the worst dining experience I’ve had in a long time for a pricey meal. I left hungry and thirsty. If you don’t like to enjoy a nice pace or eat a salad you might be fine. I won’t be back. Definitely wouldn’t recommend to any companies for business meals, I was embarrassed that we brought our employees and they left hungry.

Some of the meat was burned and uneatable. The service was slow and inattentive. We waited long periods of time for food and the salad bar service lacked urgency. I went with the intent to purchase gift cards for a gift, but I declined.

Our dinner went well - the service while polite he wasn't as attentive when needed. But when he was around he hovered awkwardly. We had to wait for our check and to pay for over 25 mins after we told him we were ready for the check.

The food was okay. The pork tenderloin was overcooked and the soup we got was served cold. While it wasn't absolutely terrible I'm not sure this would be my top choice for the money.

Overall it was a bad service for the perfect anniversary that I was planning on having you with you. First no wines available and no champagne glasses available and waitress was in a hurry and meat offers was a lot of pork and just couple of beef, never had a good signature piece of meat

We choose this place because of the wonderful food and service we received last year. This year we went back again to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The service was terrible, the food was average. They did not carry as many meats. The preparation of the salad buffet was a great idea but everyone salad order came out wrong and food was thrown on top of it each other. Making it hard to separate flavors. It was hard to get more and wasn’t working out. They charge a dollar for disposable mask even though I had one, but it fell on the floor. Which is so tacky because we already spending so much money there. I can walk into a return store and be given one and not spend any money.
We will not be returning. It could have just been our waiter but it really made the experience horrible to the point were we would not return.

Always love coming here when I and my family have a hunch for some amazing steak. It seems pricey at first, but when comparing it to a regular steakhouse where you're limited to 1 cut and a few sides for around $30-40 a person, an extra $20 doesn't seem so bad for unlimited meat. We don't come here often, but when we do, we always have a blast. Sometimes it can be a bit hard to get a hold of your waitress/waiter, but we understand as we only come in during busy holidays where service is a bit more stretched than usual. Always appreciate the hard work y'all do, will continue to come here in the future.
