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.

Overall experience was great. We were there to celebrate a birthday. My only complaint would be the server just assumed we would all share the birthday dessert, it (dessert) was not offered to anyone else at the table and we wanted to order a couple more. Other than that it was fantastic.

After arriving late for my reservation, the staff was quick to accommodate the 3 of us. As always, the salad area was wonderful and the lobster bisque was lovely. The filet mignon, sirloin, lamb and grilled shrimp were delicious. Meat coma was achieved as desired.

Unfortunately Texas de Brazil as usual outstanding flavor wasn't present when I took my wife for her Mother's Day meal. Moreover the wait staff was running way behind and we had to ask repetitively for dinner rolls at the start of our meal. Not up to the usual Texas de Brazil standard. Disappointed

We go to Texas de Brazil fairly often before the theater. The food is excellent and it is a beautiful restaurant. When we pay that much for a meal, we don't want to be rushed and we want to hear each other talk. It was Mother's Day and crowded. The servers came fast and furious and it was extremely noisy. I felt.like I was at The Golden Corral!
It was not a relaxing experience, nor was it a normal one. The 5:30 time slot is usually slower and quieter.

They have a Fantastic salad bar. The meat is always hot and fresh and they come around often to refill your plate. The staff is always friendly as well. We always go there on Sundays after the matinee at the Broadway. Just wish they had happy hour on Sundays.

The service and the attention given by our waitress was non existent, felt as if we were third class citizens (wife and I and my two little ones). After apologies and promises by the manager that the general manager would be calling us back, never received any further communication.

I had been to their Dallas location and it was phenomenal. I was looking forward to this visit.

-caipirinhas were the worst ever in my life. Ice-syrup-limes no muddling.

-Brazilian limeade with no condensed milk? Really? Then they “re-did” it and they literally put regular milk and mixed.

-meats were flavorless at best. The smallest pieces of picanha I have ever seen.

Honestly the worst experience I’ve had in a Brazilian steakhouse in the US. Such a shame!

I hope is not a chain issue, but just a simple issue with this restaurant

Everything was great up until we got to our table and got a waiter named Kyle. He was just forceful type, rude and never smiled. After he got us our first drinks we never saw him again. He would not come back to our table and we had to get the manager to help us get a desert guy. The mamager said he will tell our waiter. Another 30 min went by and still no desert guy. Wehad to track down the manager yet again and he finally brought over tne desert guy. Then it took forever for waiter to get our desert. The mamager had to even clear our table and get usrefills because waiter never came back. Took another 20 min to get our checks. After all the problems, no, Im sorry. Let me get you a small discount or something. Maybe a apology. Great food, bad waiter.

Our waitress seemed like she didn’t want to be there and that we were inconveniencing her. It took to long to get clean plates. We didn’t get all the sides, we only got bread, mashed potatoes, and bananas, nothing else. Took a long time to get refills on the limited sides. If you’re looking for a Brazilian steak house, go to Chama Guacha instead.

Service was extremely poor - waiter would disappear for long periods and meat was not coming at consistent pace. It was not up to standards seen at other Texas de Brazil locations.

Food was very good.

You can’t go wrong with a Brazilian steakhouse. The quality of service is expected to be high, and today our waitress just fell a bit short. It was my father’s birthday and she asked him if he wanted another drink and had to be reminded 30 minutes later that he still hadn’t received the drink. We had to ask several times for our water or aides to be replenished as well. She did not have many tables and we were her largest, an 8 top. Aside from that, food and salad bar were fantastic as always.

I'm not sure if it was because we came in on a Monday night, but this last meal was closer to a disappointing experience. For service, our waitress seemed uninterested in serving us. Our water cups were practically empty most of the time, which could have easily been fixed if she approached us more than just the beginning and near end of the meal. The manager, however, was definitely great in checking up on us and making sure we were getting requested meats to our table. As for the food, it felt as if most of the meats were leaning toward the overcooked side, regardless of what level of doneness we requested. In the cases where the meat was cooked as requested, it was delicious. Overall, we've decided that this experience was inconsistent and when (if?) we decide to come back, it will not be on a weekday - our thinking is that meats are out (cooked) longer with a smaller volume of customers.

It was really delicious and the service was excellent. It was loud in the restaurant but not so much you couldnt talk amongst your table. The value is dependant upon yiur perception yes it is expensive but it is a very cool experience and you can not possibly leave hungry unless you try. The drinks were excellent as well.

My food was good but my service and ticket were completely messed up. I tried to pay $40.00 cash and put the rest of the check on the card. My server charged my card the full price and kept my $40.00 cash. MGR said that my ticket was corrected. I was told that my account would be corrected when cards were run at the end of the day. 2 days later and the $40.00 still has not been put back into my account. Spent $88.70 for a $48.70 meal! Still waiting for my account to be cleared up.
