I have been to Texas de Brazil at least 10 times and unfortunately this time was not the same same. As a family we enjoy eating meat but this time it was not the same half of the meat we git was room temperature and as far as I know it should be hot. The chicken was overcooked and dry. On top of that they charge for lamb chops that I have to admit it was the only good dish. The side dishes were not hot too. We were really disappointed this time. I hope you guys step up and provide the amazing food youbusually do.

Salad bar is exceptional. Wide variety of choices. The meat doesn't stop, cooked just how I like it. Waiter was attentive. Not a bad choice for dinner to celebrate a birthday!

Excellent salad/hot bar. I’d go back just for that! The meat was plentiful, and always coming around to the table. Staff was extremely nice. Everything was fresh and delicious. The only complaint was the water refills were few and far between, we had to ask when all 6 of us were completely empty more than once. Over all a great experience - wonderful food.

This was the first time I and my party had dined at Texas de Brazil since the start of the pandemic. Food and service were as excellent as before. Only complaint is the lack of chocolate cake as a dessert option. I'm uncertain if that's a temporary or permanent situation. Pre-pandmic, they had excellent chocolate cake.

The salad bar was very clean and well-stocked. The meats were of varying degrees of doneness. You will need to keep an eye on where a given skewer is being cut, and may have to ask that a cut be made elsewhere if you especially do or don't want rare or well-done. Other than issues of doneness, all meats were freshly cooked and flavorful. And with the variety of meats, you're bound to find at least a couple you'll like, assuming you're not a vegetarian.

Food was awesome. Downside is we can't eat as much as we used too. We so wanted the lamb but we were too full. Doesn't take long to fill our bellies. Next visit.

It was exceptionally crowded, and we were placed in the back corner of the restaurant since we were a bigger party ourselves. We did have to wave over a server and ask them to bring us food and water multiple times. We were informed that all of the servers were on break. The server that came by to check in on us after 20 minutes without any food was the only one not on break was apologized and took it upon himself to bring over food as often as he could. We eat here often and normally love it, but I would have rather had them cancel my reservation because they were understaffed.

Downhill from a few years ago. And now they charge you extra for the lamb chops-$9 for 4 -one bite each.

This was our first visit to Texas de Brazil. All in all it was a great first experience. I couldn't ask for a better team of wait staff and food handlers. Top notch 100%! My only complaint, and I say it lightly, was the pork meat selections were a bit dry. That will not stop us from visiting this place again, or even bringing others with us next time!

It was a great experience overall! Service was a bit slower than I had hoped as I had to ask for the check 3 plus times over about 30 mins when the waitress would come and fill our waters or check in.

Overall the place is great, meats are amazing. Deserts not so much, waited 40 mins for our waitress who came to us 6 times during the timeframe with a different excuse as to why our deserts werent ready. Waitress not attentive to drink refills or would take our glasses and not come back for 15mins.

Not the smooth-running operation we’re used to.

The salad bar ran out of plates—which backed up everything. Tons of people loitering in that area because they had to wait.

We got the bread but not the bananas. The bar was slow and the waitress didn’t ask about more drinks until we were nearly done eating.

She was nice enough and seemed competent but not excellent. Even the water person kept walking right by without refilling.

No paper towels in the bathroom.

The food was excellent, of course. I just expect a little more for the amount of money it costs.

Food was either burnt,or raw,it was way too noisy in the restaurant, waitress never came back to see if everything was ok and if we wanted refills on our drinks, And as we were going to leave they brought out different food items that looked promising

The place is super noisy. Our waiter was fantastic but hard to understand with the mask and noise. The salad bar was fine. Now for the reason we all go…. The meat…. All of the red meat was a perfect medium rare, which we liked. The meat lacked seasoning and it was all very chewy. For a $150 meal for 2, I expect the filet mignon to be super tender and the lamb to be flavorful. It was not the case. The drinks were not good but very expensive. They charge for water unless you want tap water. The sides were great. I won’t be going back.
