The atmosphere is too dark and music too loud. Could not understand the waitress or the servers that bring the meat portions by. The salad bar was not up to par, and options for extremely limited on anything. It was not worth 45$ a plate.

We waited about 15 minutes before we were even approached by wait staff. Then another 20 minutes before we got our drinks. Server was pleasant; but we could hardly hear her due to the noise level. Food was phenomenal but where the service was lacking, it definitely did not meet our expectations for the price that was paid.

The food was fresh & plentiful - our waitress Kia had a great attitude and was very helpful throughout our dinner. The salad bar was available again, provided you donned your mask and a pair of gloves - a small price to pay to select your own items, in my book!! It was my husband's birthday, and he and I both enjoyed the experience immensely! Thanks for a great evening!

Arrived 30 minutes early to check in and the young lady at the front desk was just rude and unfriendly. We brushed it off and went to the bar to order a drink, which we waited 20 minutes for only to be told no one could make a drink because the bartenders are also servers...what? Brushed that off and said ok. The food came out rushed regardless of what color card we had turned over and it was always old meet at the end of the knife. Overall awful experience other than our waitress who was great. This place has gone way down hill won’t be back any time soon.

Just really disappointing. Bathrooms were not clean, food was just not good at all. Service was so so. Been to Texas location and it is night and day difference. Also the Valet was not running.

This is a fine example of a Brazilian steakhouse; albeit a chain, it is an enjoyable experience. Their chimichurri was different than most: I missed the usual, but this was a fresh, salad like version that still worked. And the complimentary dessert was a nice touch to take home!

Restaurant was too loud. Most food was too salty. Beef ribs finally came out after asking for them 5 times (took 45 minutes), and then they were not edible. They were so dry, the top layer was like beef jerky. VA COVID mitigation plan still required 6 feet between tables, which was not adhered to at all. The fried plantains were nearly burned and looked like dog mess on a platter. Even with disk turned up to green, several servers passed us by, not even pausing to see if we wanted what the were serving. All in all, the worst Brazilian restaurant experience I've ever had, and I was expecting it to be the best which is why I chose it for my birthday dinner. Big mistake.

the waiters with the meat were very attentive, but after we got our first round of drinks our actual waitress was barely around to check in on if we needed anything from waters, refills, napkins, to go boxes, the check, etc.

Server, Kai, was excellent! But she was so swamped, and not one person stepped up to help. Our table was not bussed at all during the THREE HOURS our party of 6 was there, even though we eventually scraped and stacked our own plates to make it easier for pickup. Gauchos kept coming with meat, even though our buttons were red and our table was a hot mess with no room for anything. Hostess could not have been more snobby or rude! The $3.50 SMALL coffees were not refilled once, even though they came 45 minutes prior. A random “busser ” came as we were finishing dessert and tried to grab the cake plate that was still 1/2 full, as someone was taking a bite. HORRIBLE experience, and we will not return. Bummer.

25 min wait with a res. Was hardly checked up on, water was never refilled, the sangria was good but we would have ordered another pitcher if asked, which we weren't. The food was average, and the server was obviously weeded. Not worth the cost, won't visit again.

Only reason I went out that night was for the soup that’s usually in the salad bar area. I forget what it’s called but pretty sure it has cod in it and it’s my all time fav from Texas de Brazil. Was super disappointed when I was told it was unavailable. All in all I definitely dont think it was worth what we spent. Also, the sangria was for sure not worth the almost $50 we paid for it. Was there even wine in it? Probably won’t be back anytime soon.

You pay for the experience. The hot bar/side items left little to be desired. Filet mignon only went by our table one time for the duration of our visit. Some of the meats were great, others were so so.

Good time for large parties. The food itself has tasted better at other Texas De Brazils but the idea of unlimited meat is always good. They had great social distancing practices

Waiter was very nice. I wish I could rate Nikkia separately. We were offered the sausage several times before getting something different. We had to request different meats. Why are the sides served mashed potatoes and French fries? Both were cold by the time they got to the table. The salad bar is very weak. They have a sangria special 2 for $30 and we were charged full price. Fogo de Chao is hands down better! First and last visit here.

Bought a discount card to bring my son on Saturdays when we are both off. Found out I can't use it at all on Saturdays or holidays. Asked for refund on discount card since I can't use it and was refused. We are frequent customers. We bring our huge family for holidays and special occasions. Expected better.
