Steakhouse
Texas de Brazil is no ordinary steakhouse. It’s a dining experience like no other.

Here, traditions of Brazilian cuisine blend with generous Texas hospitality to create a lively atmosphere in an upscale setting. Your meal begins with a visit to our extravagant salad area – a feast for your eyes as well as your palate. Indulge in a wide array of seasonal roasted vegetables, fresh artisan breads, charcuterie, imported cheeses and other specialties.

Next, an endless parade of gauchos visit your table with skewers of freshly grilled meats carved tableside. Choose from perfectly seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, cooked over a wood charcoal fire the way cowboys of Southern Brazil have prepared it for generations. It’s all served with authentic side dishes and to further complement your meal, select from our award-winning collection of wines or traditional Brazilian bar creations.

Welcome to the height of fine dining. Welcome to Texas de Brazil.

First time here, went on a double date. Great atmosphere, great servers .. and the food was great.
The only con is the tables are so close together it can be difficult to navigate through to get to the salad bar.

We absolutely love Texas de Brazil. The food is always so good and definitely plenty! It is pricey, and I never feel like I eat my money's worth, but it's okay because it's just so good! Go hungry!

Everything was amazing! Our food was amazing. The service was amazing. Our waiter Ryan was awesome and knowledgeable. He's probably the best server we've ever had. We definitely plan on coming back.

We were very excited to see a Brazilian Steakhouse in our local area, so as soon as we had an excuse (our wedding anniversary) we decided to book it right away! I feel like our standards were already set pretty high since we visited a different Brazilian Steakhouse in Seattle a few years back. Since we have something to compare, we will more than likely not return to Texas de Brazil. The ambiance was not as intimate as we were hoping for, but thankfully the food was pretty amazing! Overall, the experience was decent, but not worth the cost.

For 4 ppl and 4 drinks, it was a $300 bill and tax and tip. Food was ok, theres way too much stuff on the stable, my coffee cup was cracked, the ligi on all the plates are scratched. Ppl kept coming to our table every minutes, we couldnt talk to each other, wine on the menu was not available. I've come twice and it's been the same experience. For the price point, I expect 5 stars, every time.

The food was very good. It's always hard to stay away from all the great items on the center salad bar, before the meat shows up. My only disappointment was I was expecting more variety on meat:
3 chicken, 1 sausage, 2 lamb and 2 beef, was what was brought to my table. The house red wine was quite tasty too.

This restaurant needs to be on the waterfront in its own building without 1 bad table. Everything is perfect except for that. This is a great place with great high quality food and service.

We enjoyed a wonderful evening celebrating my husbands birthday. The food was delicious, lobster bisque being my favorite! Service was outstanding. The gal (I wish I could remember her name) who tended to us/our table was very kind and attentive. She ensured we had a delightful, enjoyable evening.

This was my second time there. First time was amazing. This time was less amazing - server was so-so (didn't light our candle, but all the others in the room were lit when we left), miscounted the cash we gave her and we had to ask her about and she had to recount it and adjust the bill, seemed generally kind of nervous? Meats were good, but not AS GOOD as I remember the first time. So maybe that's me, but I just didn't find them as flavorful. For the price, we had an ok time, but not a GREAT time.

The food was great and a new experience with both a buffet for salad & sides and tables service for the meat. The gauchos would carve the meat at your tables. Our server Hana was the greatest. She made the meal fun with her upbeat attitude.

I loved everything about Texas de Brazil EXCEPT for our waitress! At 1st she was very nice & for some reason after we paid & we’re getting ready to leave she started giving me & my party an ugly attitude. We figured it’s because we didn’t “tip her big enough” which really doesn’t make sense because WE TIPPED HER $40(which is a good tip) especially if being a waitress IS YOUR DAMN JOB!

Celebrated on my birthday with 2 other guest with me. The salad bar food was too salty & it didn’t complement the meal very well. My guest also complained about the amount of salt at the salad bar too. Only can stomach one plate of food that day.

The dessert was good. The disappointment was the birthday presentation of the cake. The cake looked sweaty like it’s been thawing for awhile & unappetizing at first glance.

Overall experience is was alright, but not recommending to go on special occasion. I was embarrassed that my guest didn’t enjoyed the food.

I love lamb so I definitely get my money’s worth coming here and it’s a great keto option. The service was amazing. Our server was always checking on us and filling our water and bread.

We have been there one time before and had a great experience despite the feeling of being rushed.
We came this time to celebrate a birthday. I felt that the atmosphere was extremely crowded and load this time around. Our waitress was busy so she was inattentive and we had to flag down other workers for simple things like water refills. As with our first visit we both felt rushed, even though we turned our card over to red to slow down. I don't think that for the price of the meal and beverages (expensive) I would recommend to a friend or return for a third time.

The restaurant itself is ok. The server was very good, but the people that bring the meat around need retraining. Our table was ignored most of the time, had to ask server several times for specific items. Drinks were disappointing for the cost. Not worth the money in my opinion.

The food is great! All the meats are flavorful and delicious. We bought some gift cards from Costco so we got a 20% discount on our meal.
This is my wife’s favorite restaurant so we highly recommend it it anyone for a date night, special occasion or just for lunch or dinner.

I know it's after the holidays. Servers are tired, businesses have just had a rushed and crazy holiday season. I get it, but..
We made a reservation early enough, got sat quickly enough by the front windows and the hostess stand. I had to keep my coat on because the table was right where the cold air from the doors came in, along with sitting next to the window.
The table candle was not lit, so I asked the server to light it. Upon picking it up...there was oil on the table that hadn't been noticed and cleaned up.
The drinks came quickly and were good. The water to fill the water glasses didn't have any ice in it. We happily went to the salad portion to start our meal process. Typically the same stuff that was there the last time, about 6 moths ago. Everything looked great but why was there a roll of sushi in an Brazil Steakhouse? I grabbed the oil and vinegar and the bottles were sticky and unclean. Yuck! Upon getting back to our table, we were greeted by the Gauchos and started off with some Chicken, we inquired about the Picanha which is delicious. I think we asked everyone, including our server, for some. In the meantime there were several options that were dropped by the gauchos. Finally, they came by our table and dropped some. It wasn't too bad. Overall, the sirloin, the ribs, the porkchop were delicious. The manager stopped by and was very nice and pleasant. Our server was satisfactory. This place was just tired...plain 'ole tired. I'd try it again...probably in the next 6 months. Hopefully the can restore the sparkle of this nice place.

Great experience. lots of different meats but beware the waitresses will offer cake, coffee and extra drinks that are not included in your buffet pricing so it adds up pretty fast especially with tax and tip!

We had a fabulous time. We were seated immediately. They were very informative to the members of our party who had never been in before. The food was brought to the table at a good pace so we were not overwhelmed or left waiting and everything was cooked to perfection. Our server was friendly and made sure to check in with us several times. It was fantastic service and we will be back.

The food was great but it was a bit noisy. Our server was great. I only wish the servers with the skewers had come around more often. It was busy and we were in the back by two other very large parties and it felt like they were too busy with them to come to us as often. There were a few times when they came to one, served them, and ran off without ever looking in our direction (with plenty of meat left on their skewers). We got enough to eat but it definitely took a long time and us directly asking for meat to come our way.
The salad bar and the hot food bar was amazing.

The food was very good, though I was quite disappointed they were out of Iced Tea. I can't drink sugary drinks, so I was relegated to Ice Water...not my favorite when I'm spending over a hundred dollars for a meal for two! I overheard the table next to us having the same discussion, so obviously this was a broader problem than just for my table...otherwise, everything was lovely!

Although I’d been to a churrascaria before, I hadn’t been to Texas de Brazil and they’re all a little different. No one explained how it worked to get us started.
