Description: Texas de Brazil is carving out a whole new experience in fine dining. The restaurant is an authentic Brazilian-American “Churrascaria” or steakhouse that combines the cuisines of Southern Brazil with the generous spirit of Texas.Treat yourself to our 50-60 item seasonal salad area including appetizers, gourmet vegetables, soups, and salads. Turn your place card to green and prepare to be swarmed by a troop of carvers generously serving various cuts of seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, all accompanied by traditional side items and house-baked Brazilian cheese bread. As you dine endlessly on Brazilian fare, let one of our in-house wine connoisseurs select the perfect pairing from our extensive, award-winning wine lists, or sip on a freshly-made signature cocktail-the Caipirinha. Complete your dining experience with one of our many decadent dessert selections, and then relax with an after-dinner drink, steaming espresso and enjoy the ambiance and service perfection that is uniquely Texas de Brazil.

“Meat on a Stick”

if your a meat lover, then this is the place for you. Very expensive, but well worth it. Some of the best Brazilian food that I have ever had. Service was outstanding!

“Service comparable to the French Room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

I must say my waiter read my mind without my permission, in the best way. if I looked up he was available to provide me with service that beyond exceptional. The only down side was that there were no pineapples, and plantains served. There were however, bananas(served at the table), and pineapple like fruit at the salad bar. I am a lamb lover and it was marinated so that the taste lingered for further indulgence. I ordered dessert to go since it is quite easy to pray for forgiveness later for gluttony here. I knew the price was not budget friendly nonetheless, I would still say it is adequately priced for the cuts of meat and salad bar selection it was affordable. For four people with alcohol beverages it was $120.

“Stick with the Salad Bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

The salad bar is the best thing about this restaurant. The experience of a Brazilian steakhouse is a distant second. The meat offerings are mediocre, at best. Service was excellent and attentive without being overly solicitous.

First, the salad bar included imported olives, herbed goat cheese, roasted peppers, prosciutto, asparagus spears, hearts of palm, marinated cioppolini onions, Portobello mushrooms, imported salami, sushi rolls, and many other delectable items. Oh yes, lettuce & tomatoes were available, but why not indulge on the other offerings? My food rating for the salad bar is 5+ stars.
Second, the experience and concept of a Brazilian steakhouse (explained on their website and in other reviews) is interesting but by the time the meat reaches the table it is room temperature. I tried the top sirloin, the tenderloin (filet mignon) and the lingua (a South American sausage). Both beef cuts were tasteless, had gristle and were tough. The sausage was OK but just not to my personal taste. I recommend skipping the meats, but prime filets at the grocery store or butcher and cook them at home. My food rating for the meat is 1-2 stars.
Third, the roasted plaintains served as a palate cleanser are cloyingly sweet. I tried one bite and it was so sweet, I was close to nausea..
Overall, an interesting but expensive experience. The full dinner, including the salad bar and sides, was $45. The salad bar alone would have been $25. Overall, a good learning experience.

“DAMN that was expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I wish someone had told me that this was like a damn expensive buffet of meats. The food was good but i will most likely not be returning here ever. Not for $50 a plate, thats just crazy.

“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Dropped in spur of the minute and were seated within 5 minutes during a very busy evening. Food kept coming and was absolutely delicious! Due to the vicinity, definitely take advantage of the valet service. Wish there was one in Seattle.
