Alot of the meat was kind of dry. It wasn’t what I thought it was gonna be. The food was overall ok. I would be happy with the food quality if it was a $10 buffet but I would expect way better quality for the $46 a person they charge

Those servers really move! They bring excellent cuts of meat quickly. They keep the glasses filled and are good kids. Management has done an excellent job training their staff.

I had a reservation and still had to wait 25 minutes to be seated. I feel like yall have to label the food at the salad bar/sides area.

My best friend and I went there for dinner and we were blown away by the meat selections. Wheel of the Lamb as well as the hot food station. The cheese potatoes and lobster bisque are phenomenal! The servers were all very polite and prompt. Unfortunately we were too full for dessert! We will definitely go again!

I am from Texas and perhaps that has made me biased. In TX, Texas de Brazil has a reputation for fine dining with a more upscale feel to it. That is NOT what we experienced here. The restaurant was crowded, loud and the service was terrible. The waitress was so scarce that my husband literally drank his water and asked for a refill before she left because we knew it would be a while till we saw her again. Meat came before sides and there was about a 15 minute gap between getting our food and then getting our drinks later. Would not recommend.

I got to the reservation before the time it was set for and we weren’t seated for almost 30 minutes when five groups of bigger parties came in after me and were seated before me.

This place used to be top notch in service and food quality! I’m not sure if they’ve switched owners or what, but this past experience was sub par, especially for the prices we paid and the new up charges they’re enforcing! I’m so disappointed with the quality of meats now served, the over seasoning, the erratic cook temps (nearly raw versus well done or burnt) and the sword-men were impolite and rushed us. Our server seemed too busy to check in, but seemed super rushed to remove all plates and silverware, yet took 20 minutes to process our check.
It was just a bummer of a meal. To be clear, we paid $175 for dinner for two (before tip) and I have received better service and value at Texas Roadhouse. It’s a sad shame to see our favorite ‘special occasion’ restaurant fall so short.

All staff was polite and helpful. The food was amazing. The salad bar wasn’t as large as other locations I’ve been to but I don’t know if that’s pandemic related. Only disappointment was that I indicated we were celebrating a birthday on the reservation and that information either wasn’t shared with the restaurant or they didn’t pay attention to it. They made it right.

Took some time to get service after we sat down. We had basically starved ourselves all day so we were a little cranky at first. Once Mia came by the table though, things got much better! She did an excellent job and was very personable. Caipirinhas were refreshing and received my Brazilian wife’s approval. We will be back for sure.

Took my wife here for our 1st time. Kayin was absolutely amazing. She politely explained how everything was done step by step. She was a top notch waitress. I will request her when we go back. The food was beyond amazingly good. The cooks did a fantastic job. The meat servers/carvers that bring the skewers of meat to your table did an amazing job as well. We asked for the manager to give compliments of the staff.. she too was an amazing manager.. all in all 5 stars ( 10 if I could ) all the way around. Hands down the BEST restaurant I've ever been to and best food too. Keep up the amazing work😁😁🥂

Mia had a very bright personality and was very attentive to our needs. Being that it our first time visiting Texas de Brazil, she thoroughly explained their process, made sure we understood and came back very often to make sure we were taken care of. The food was fresh, very flavorful, and plentiful. I particularly enjoyed the filet mignon.. Will definitely be going back and requesting Mia personally!

This is a great place if your meat lover. You can sample several different types of meat without having to commit to one platter. We were served by Mia who went above and beyond to make sure we had a great dining experience.

Very noisy environment. The servers were very friendly. Most of the meat was salty. Sides were put on table way before meat came so they were cold to eat with the meal. Price did not include all the meat and or desert.

We were disappointed that the lamb chops were an additional cost and no longer included. All of the meat was overcooked. The service was slow despite not very crowded. We were not offered dessert at all and it was a birthday dinner. Truly a let down considering the past wonderful experiences. Not sure if I will return and my guest will surely not.

I don't appreciate having a reservation and still having to wait 30 minutes to be seated! Also, I didn't like waiting another 20 minutes for our server to get to our table!
Some of the cuts of meats were over-
cooked! Wasn't that impressed with the side orders!

This was the worst experience at this restaurant I have ever had. We only have meat choice come to us 3 times and it was the same person with the same item. Our server was horrible. Definitely not worth the $140 that I paid. I will not be revisiting this location ever again.

Hello...It could have been due to a holiday, but we had to keep asking our server to have the food servers to bring meats to the table. Also, they only had 2 chicken options and everything else was beef, pork, or lamb. Again, we had to ask for the second chicken option because it never made it to our table. I got lobster bisque soup off off the bar and it was cold and not a sign of lobster in sight, it looked like tomato soup. We also had to ask for someone to send the server to the table to remove used plates. However, she was a very good server and very informative and patient. The scalloped potatoes, jasmine rice and potato salad, from the bar was really good. It would have been a good option to have a hot green side. The green beans were a part of the cold bar and salad. The Brazilian Lemonade was also great. I honestly have had better service multiple times at Tucanos in Newport News. The food quality and options there are much better.  Also, valet was not in service and the parking situation is horrible. It started raining and we had to walk from the parking garage on the block behind the building to get to the door. There should be access to get inside the restaurant from inside of the mall, if guests have to mark in the mall parking garage. I was expecting more for the price tag that came on this meal ($150), plus a disappointment for our first and probably only visit, if I have to pay for it again.
