The good was a little slow but things sped up after about 40 min of sitting.

The service was terrible and the food was cold, for the price you have to paid for dining here everything should have been great! The price changed when they removed the Lamb chops and made them al le carte for an additional prices increased the price even more. It is a rip off and corporate has to do something about it if they want to keep their remaining patrons,because I will not pay my hard earned money for this crap ever again. I have spent a plenty of money at this establishment before Covid-19 but this was the last time for me and my family.

We visited this restaurant for our anniversary. Let me just start off by saying the food was great. I thought some of the tables should have been blocked off for social distancing, but I think at this point the restrictions were about to go in effect again and had not happened yet. Whatever the case, the restaurant was packed and that tables were close, that made me a little uneasy. The drinks were delicious as well. We were seated next to a large family so it was a little noisy but it was a great ambiance. The servers were attentive and the array and quality of the meats were excellent. We will definitely return again!

It took at least 20 minutes for anyone to even come to our table with a meat skewer. Then our sides were not hot, as if they had been sitting for awhile. We waited long stretches of time in between meat options throughout the entire night, and a lot of it was way too salty. We come here every year for our anniversary but don’t think we will be back after this.

The acoustics make it hard to hear those at your table especially if you're a bit hard of hearing to start with. The meats were great but all, even the "unsalted" were a bit salty. I miss being able to get your own salad but other than taking a while ordering it worked just fine. Having no valet parking and access to the mall closing at our reservation time did not make for a great after dinner walk nearly all the way around the mall to get to the garage. On the positive side, the after dinner stroll was good for digestion...

Service was great, I went out by myself and was really looking forward to eating a lot. Unfortunately after the 3rd piece of meat I got sick and was in the restroom all night.

We saw our waiter twice. He refiled out waters once. He did not see we were out of sides and we had to flag him down. He was not attentive and we stat for a half hour before we got our check. Because of his poor service we will not be coming back.

Horrible birthday experience for my wife and our party. Very poor service. We never even saw a lamb chop after ordering it ala carte due to unadvertised changes which if we knew about definitely would have changed our plans. The whole experience was simply horrible, we will never go again, ever.

My husband had been to a Brazilian steakhouse years ago and had a bad experience, but I had never experienced it so we gave it another try. We started with ordering a cocktail ... we were told they were out of all alcohol except for wine and one Brazilian drink that was compared to rum. Seemed odd. Asked to see the wine list and was told they would bring us a couple of options, based on what we liked. She brought a Pinot Noir and a Zinfandel. Both were offered at 50% of their “normal” price ... she got “permission from the manager” ... also seemed odd. Ordered our salads, which were good. Was told to turn a little circle over from one color to another when we were ready for them to bring meats around. We weren’t half way through our salad and had not turned ours over and for the next 15 mins, in spite of never turning our circle over (to indicating we wanted more), we were offered several types and cuts of meat. We were never offered or asked what sides we might have wanted ... ever ... nor did we get any ... by the time we finished the salad and meats we were full. The meats were just okay. They were all over seasoned and we could only eat small portions of each one because of it. They certainly have it down where they are making the most profit possible, without regard for much else. It felt “themed” ... but it also had a weird vibe and the experience all around wasn’t great. I’m glad I went once ... but that’s enough.

While I understand the family style concept, this restaurant is a recipe for over-eating. I would have preferred to have less food put on my plate. Furthermore, they do not wrap up the sides they give you to go. While our server was attentive, the bar was very slow and drinks were mediocre. The servers dishing out meats were pushy and not responsive to the "stop" indicators on the tables. What was most disappointing was that we were offered a military discount by the server, then denied it by the manager because we had gift cards. We were also not permitted to put tip on the gift cards. These are issues one might expect from a chain restaurant.

Food was good, although salad was their only option for vegetables. Service was a little slow from our waitress. Very disappointed that they did not have any beer available even though it’s on their menu. I understand having an issue with the kegs on tap, but how hard is it to run to the grocery store and stock up on bottles.

With covid, your server does need to get your salad bar options. We didn't have a problem with that. It was fast and the server brought a ton of food from the salad bar. The rest of the food was also good. The only thing I did not agree with was they now charge you extra for lamb chops. Other than that, it was a great experience.

I was riding a motorcycle the other night when I went and did not have my mask. Are the restaurants just let you walk to the table with your helmet on. They did not accommodate this request. And I had to leave and walk several blocks to go to a store to buy mask. They are supposedly a high end restaurant that changes $50 a plate for dinner. It would not hurt to have some 50 Cent mask at the door to give to customers who do not have one. I was riding a motorcycle the other night when I went and did not have my mask.

Wasn’t a big fan of the chicken that was brought to the table. The salad bar was delicious. The steak was delicious. The service was fantastic by our server. The hostess was no a personable person. She never smiled. Somebody should tell her that she is the hostess. It’s almost like she belongs behind a desk where she doesn’t have to deal with people. The female manager was very rude to my husband and we actually almost left because he felt like she was treating him disrespectfully.
Everything else was ok.

Music was totally different than it should be, I’m a nice restaurant not a club. Food skipped our table several times. I believe they must implement (green/red) cards. Overall good, but can be better.

We had reservations to celebrate a birthday. We sat waiting for about 30 minutes before our drink orders were taken, and another 10 before our salad order was taken. Meanwhile, a couple that were seated after us were served drinks, salads, and had their plates for meat before our drink order was even taken by our server. Our waiter never acknowledged the birthday even though it was on the ticket on the table. We ended up getting our plates from the neighboring server after she realized we still had nothing on our table. Lastly we ordered a pitcher of sangria, and we’re told that we would get the rest of the bottle and we did not. In the end we were charged for the birthday dessert and never got our wine. He did however take the dessert off the bill.

The food was perfectly prepared. The meats are tender, juicy, cooked the way we like, and plentiful. Our server must have been new or unfamiliar with the serving procedures of Texas de Brazil. The server was probably one of the less competent servers we have had at a Texas de Brazil restaurant and we have eaten at several different Texas de Brazil restaurants many times a year for many years. She did not bring bananas to the table. We had to request the bananas several. At Texas de Brazil, bananas are an integral part of the meal. We had to wait for our water. She was not attentive to our needs. We did not feel welcome. We needed to ask for items that the servers know are part of the dinning experience. Our server should have been trained longer. more thorough, or been observed for a longer time. Another server should have taught the server more of the finesse exhibited by good Texas de Brazil servers. She needs more initiative and enthusiasm.
