Welcome to the height of fine dining. Welcome to Texas de Brazil.
Customer service was great food was great love the atmosphere
I typically love TDB restaurants, but this was terrible from the start. Got bar drinks and server said only great could give me printed receipt, so would bring to table. Never did, had to ask 2 more times, and waited 5 more minutes on way out for asimple receipt. Noise levels were incredible, so moved to new table. Meat service was sparse. Had to ask the server for beef 3x. Espresso served with no spoon and no sugar. By time she returned, espesso was cool. Worst Texas de Brazil I have been to.
My husband and I enjoyed out night as we have many times at this location. The only thing that I didn't care for was the lack of our server explaining that I would be receiving a *free dessert for my birthday as it was presented as though I'd be paying for a dessert if I wanted one.
Had I previously known the dessert would be complementary, an extra 10mins of waiting after dinner could have been avoided.
It is also tasteless to have servers standing over a guest while they sign their check and determine a tip amount. I've been to this restaurant on 6 seperate occasions and the servers NEVER did this.
We have been to this restaurant many times. Our server was fantastic. It was Sunday evening and not too busy. It seemed like many of the meat carvers were in hurry or skipped over our table several times. We were there at 7:30p, so it wasn't closing time nor was it super busy as we've seen before. Anyway, our server was great, the food was delicious. We did notice a change in the chimichurri sauce recipe. Undecided which we liked better (the old way or the new way) as both are tasty but the new one has a little more kick to it.
Fabulous dining experience, supported by a great staff.
Everything was awesome as usual! Really enjoy the experience and the quality of the meat is excellent. A great special occasion restaurant if you enjoy meat but the anti-pasta bar is a meal in itself.
Great experience. Food was great, however, it is very pricey. Almost 200 for 2 adults and one child with drinks. Definitely an experience you have to try once, but most likely wouldn't go again. Servers were right there to serve you more when you needed it.
We had a great time and had some GREAT food. The only hiccup came when they brought some filet around that was more medium to medium-well and we had told them that we liked the meat to be medium-rare. When our waiter came by to check on us, I told him this and he went and told them to come back by with the filet cooked to our liking and they did. There were just a few times when we had to wait a while after we had finished the meat on our plates, for more meat to arrive...but that might have been a blessing in disguise to let our stomachs take a break. Overall, we had a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a special and unique dining experience.
Positive: the service during the week was wonderful - I will not come on the week-ends again! The food was amazing - Really enjoyed our evening except for:
Energetic is polite for LOUD - so loud we had trouble hearing the server.
Noisy atmosphere. Excellent service. Overall food is good. Little pricey but compensate with exceptional customer service. Fantastic selection of wine and drinks. Great place for audits but family with small kids may not enjoy as much.
We come here at least two-three times a month. But this visit was the worst experience we have ever had! I’ve never had a complaint prior to this. My son and I had to wait 20 mins just to order a drink and 10 minutes to get it after we ordered them. We had literally one guy stop by our table with the sausage links. We had to stop the servers for the chicken and ribs. We did not get served any beef until the manager noticed that our plates were clean with no food being delivered to our table. We told the server that we wanted our meat MW that never happened. It was all rare. Needless to say we didn’t have the best experience. Money well wasted that evening.
I celebrated my birthday there, great place, good service.
Restaurant is a poor salad bar and self service with meats brought to your table on a skewer after being paraded around the restaurant and serving many other tables. Meats were over seasoned and very salty. The restaurant was very noisy, children running between tables, patrons and servers were non stop by our table and we did not even sit near the kitchen and or the restrooms felt like we had PTSD when we left. Would not recommend for the reasons stated and the price.
We have dined at this location on many occasions ... Unfortunately this past experience was just terrible and we will never return! Our server all but ignored us, drink orders took more than 30 minutes, simple requests like a 9 y/o not being served iced tea in a wine glass went ignored, a cup of coffee ordered by my father in law took 26 minutes before I got up and found a manager who brought the coffee himself. A pair of small children (less than 6 years old) were sighted and reported to waitstaff that they had their hands in the salad bar/buffet on more than 3 occasions before management removed the affected food. The noise level was off the charts and was very unpleasant for conversation just among ourselves at our table. Service very poor, ambience very poor, food good but severely overpriced for what was offered. 3 meat eating adults, 2 vegetarians, and 1 nine year old child and the bill was 370.00+ with only 3 alcoholic beverages ordered for the whole table.
I really liked how the inside looked, our waiter was nice and she was really respectful, food was good recommend lobster bisque soup. Recommend this restaurant.
Excellent food and service, will definitely return.
First the bartender didn’t give us a discount on a bottle of wine when that is what was advertised for their special. Just due to no knowledge of it or trying to get more money, not sure. It’s all you can eat steak and meat which is great. But the steak is all mediocre at best. I’d rather spend the $50 on a great steak from somewhere else. Not worth it in my eyes. So much so that we gifted the remaining $32 of a gift card to the table next to us just so we did not have to go back.
Always a wonderful experience. Beautiful restaurant. The staff is top notch. The food is fabulous!
Abigale was a wonderful server! 10/10!!
It's pricey, but it was an awesome treat for me and the kids. A chance to dress up a bit and enjoy some delicious food! We'll definitely go back for another visit one day.
Great food, great atmosphere, and great service! What an excellent meal!
My husband got sick for two days after eating at your restaurant
will alway make this a special place to go, we've been here alot an plan to keep coming back.
VERY loud, and repeatedly had to request the better cuts of meats; but good quality food.
This was the perfect place to celebrate my son starting college. He loves steak and said this was the best steak he has ever had. The experience was great and the food was setons delicious.
It was a bad experience this time, went our whole meal without seeing any filet. We had to ask 3 times and it came out right before we left. When it finally cam it was kind of cold and near raw. This is the second bad experience to several good experiences...
We arrived 20 minutes early and chose the valet option for parking. Upon entering the restaurant we were quickly greeted, inquired as to our reservation, and promptly seated at a table. The server was well unformed of all selections on the menu from desserts to cocktail specials. The server was extremely polite, and attentive to our needs.
We then took a short walk to the salad bar and hot serve station. One WORD...PHENOMENAL!! Lox, Whitefish, Cheeses, Shrimp, Seafood Bisque, Olives, Cured Hams, and so many other selections. As we sat down, we flipped over our disk from red to green and were wonderfully assaulted by meats. Incredibly seasoned and a treat to the palate. Chicken with Parmesan cheese,not over powering but with just enough cheese to enjoy. Flank steaks, Lamb, and many other cuts of Chicken and Beef. As it was my wifes birthday, she was presented with Carrot cake, a candle and "Happy Birthday" spelled out with piping gell in the plate, a very nice touch. I enjoyed Key Lime pie and a cup of Cappuccino.
Overall, a very nice dining experience. Hats off to the staff for making the entire nite special, we shall return!!
Always great food! It's a family favorite! We always go here for special occasions!
Food was good as usual. Our server Jackie was awesome and really attentive.
Servers were very attentive to us. The filet mignon and house steak was our favorite meat option. We also enjoyed the cheese bread, lobster bisque, salmon and sushi. We liked that the staff did not rush us since we have a few at our table that seem to have bottomless stomachs! We were able to relax and enjoy the meal in addition to celebrating a birthday. Thank you.
Everything was absolutely fantastic. The food was phenomenal, and our group had a wonderful time. Thank you for such a great experience.
New years eve
A good place for a reservation ok New Year’s Eve. Very glad we were accommodated on shortish notice.
Food was great, however service was not what I would expect from our server, especially given he has to do very little with it being mainly self serve and other servers bringing around the meats.
Service was very good but food was ok. Some of the meats especially flank steak was very tough.
Hostess stand was chaotic, clearly did not have bus boys as the hostess had to leave constantly to clean tables. Loud and having to shout to speak to my husband right in front of me. However, food was very good. Mostly outweighed all the other not so great things.
Dinner is a bit too expensive. Lunch is the right price.
First time dining at a Brazilian steakhouse and Texas de Brazil did not disappoint. I took my husband here for his birthday and we had a perfect dining experience! 10/10 recommend!
Celibrated our 40th anniversary here. Fabulous food and service. A little pricey but the food was high quality and perfectly prepared. Will definitely return.
