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.

Great food, service, and atmosphere. Skip most of the cocktails though. The mohito was good, but the rest taste like gasoline.

Always an incredible experience. Steve was our server and he helped us celebrate my son getting straight A’s. My son loves meat so this is THE PLACE. Jen, the manager, was very accommodating and encouraging to my son as well. We really enjoyed ourselves and look forward to returning soon. THANK YOU Steve and Jen!!!!

We went for a birthday and it was on the sheet and it was never even acknowledged. It took a very long time to get our drinks or side dishes. We went on a Saturday for what we assumed was lunch and we were charge for a dinner portion.

Great food, good service, but they shoved us in a back room that had no heat. It was at least 60’degrees and had a major draft. We all ate dinner with our winter jackets on. It’s MIND boggling that we could pay nearly $300 for our meal and this company can’t buy a $50 electric portable heater to ensure that room is warm. Had family from out of town and they never had been and this was a very very sour taste in an otherwise great restaurant. The family said they wouldn’t return due to this.

Not good. Waited for server for ten minutes after being seated. Another server came by and saw we hadn’t been taken care if so he stepped in. Finally, server came. It was our Anniversary and it was on the reservation and the ticket and the server made no mention until I showed her an email for a free dessert. Many of the meats never made it to our table. When we did ask for things of the server it took twenty minutes to receive them. Asked for our desserts to go and they were brought on a plate. No manager ever came to ask about our experience and we watched two of them going from table to table. When we asked to speak to one at the door he informed us that “everyone else” he had spoken to had been given” plenty of food and had a great time”. We are not happy with our experience and may not go back.

This is experience dining; not a weekly or monthly, but a very special occasion dining experience. The price is expensive but worth the experience and the food is awesome. The service is beyond compare.

Our service was very poor for this visit. Our waitress was amazing and we tipped her as though. But the frequency of the meat coming around was severely lacking. We waited with empty plates for up to 20 minutes in between services. One time we had fillet and it was raw and cold in the middle. The ribs were overdone, and the quality of the smoked salmon was very poor. It was stringy and tasted raw. This has not been our experience in the past but we were very disappointed this time. We probably won’t be back for some time, if ever.

We went for my husbands birthday. It was a group of 7 and we were seated on the upper level right past the bathrooms on the right. The table is in section alone, right past the bathrooms and prior to the kitchen. This table was only passed by servers going to the kitchen. During our two hours there for dinner, over half of the meat listed was never brought by our table and we waited 15 minutes between one for another. At one point a manager came by as our plates were empty, cards on green and asked would we like more. We all said yes and informed we had been waiting for some time. Our server then came by and noticed the empty plates as well. After 15 minutes they brought one skewer of meat, it was lamb and the only meat our table did not eat. With waiting that long we all filled up on the salad bar but paid full price for food we did not get.

I have been to this location many times. This visit was on a Saturday afternoon. We found the service by the guys bringing the meats around to be very slow. We had to request several times that they serve our table, and it was an unusually long time before they showed up initially. There also seemed to be limited selections of meat -- almost like they had not anticipated the number of people eating there. Several times they also came to the table with meat that was well done - whereas we had requested it medium rare. I would still return, but found this experience disappointing.

The food was excellent, as always, but whereas the waiters are typically very good about accomodating special requests for specific meats, there were a few occasions where we made such requests and the waiters never returned as they said they would.

We have been patrons of Texas de Brazil for several years and have always enjoyed going. In the past we have always recommended Texas de Brazil to friends. Our past two visits have not been the what we have been accustomed to. The red meats have been quite tough/chewy and quite honestly, not seasoned well at all, not much flavor. As far as service, we would have servers come to our table and hit one end of the table and then move to the tables around us instead of going to the other end of our table. We had a total of 10 guests so we had to work to flag them down to be served. We also requested certain meats and it took quite a while for the to finally come around.

Again, we have regularly gone to Texas de Brazil. Time before last we did not receive good service (slow, not tended to), but we decided to give it a try again. Unfortunately this experience was worse than our previous visit.

On a positive note, the salad bar area was great!

Server dropped off plates near my table and some pieces of glass splashed to my son. They didn't say sorry and clean up well. Also meat server kept skipping my table and I complained about it to our server.
It was the worst service ever. It didn't worth $45.

We arrived 10 minutes early for our 7pm reservation and were not seated u til roughly 740. There were tons of other people waiting as well. The female working the check in for people with reservations and walk-ins seemed overwhelmed and like she was unable to keep up to the point she was unable to find a reservation for a couple that came in just after us. Once we were finally seated, our waitress was sweet and we felt she did the best she could given the cards dealt that night. She mentioned to us they were short staffed and she had tables all over. We RARELY saw meat carvers at our table. Even after the waitress insisted she’d asked them to make their rounds to our table, we still rarely saw them to the point we got bored sitting there and decided to leave. For such an expensive restaurant, I expected top notch service so I’m definitely disappointed.

The meats were very slow coming out. We sat at one point about 20+ minutes with nothing. The server kept checking to see what was wrong

It was busy and we had hardly any meat servers come by our table. Had to ask for just about every meat we ate. That has been our experience consistently on busy nights. Would be better off going on a non-busy night.

I am glad that I gave this restaurant a chance. I was looking for something that wasn't a traditional place to eat, and I'm so glad that I've found it!! Within two months, I have gone four times and will be booking again real soon.

So this is a place we come when celebrating something usually for my husband or brother in law.. generally we really enjoy it but this night wasn’t worth it! Our waiter was non existent, and we waited almost forty minutes for any of the guys serving meat to show up! The whole point of this place is to get to try different cuts of meat and to be able to enjoy the meal. I wish we had gone anywhere else! Thing is that we didn’t even care that even though we had a reservation we still had to wait to sit, even though there were a lot of empty tables. You have definitely lost your appeal as a once fun and higher quality restaurant.. I hope you get it together so we can come back..

We went here for NYE 2020. The service and the food are always fantastic here. The guys who carve the meat are really attentive in the type of temperature your meat should be. They always ask what are we waiting for and how we like our meat prepared. Great job as always!
