“One word...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

AMAZING!!!! This is one restaurant we'll never stop talking about and recommending. The buffet was great, but we were there for one thing the meat! Everything that we tried was succulent! You could have cut it with a regular knife, but they only gave you steak knives. You'll have a choice of sparkling, tap, or spring water. I'll admit that we paid $11 for spring water, but we're on vacation and we live it up. They will recommend a Brasilia drink, we each got one, not to our liking. DESSERTS ARE FAB! There's nothing better than the service here. Our waiter, James, was incredible. He had 3 other tables besides ourselves and he was just rocking out.

“Awesome Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

I had a large group at Texas de Brazil and they had us in a seperate room and the night was wonderful. Service is great and the salad bar is an experience in itself.

I look forward to going there again!

“mouth watering”

AMAZING beef, impeccable service - incredible salad bar and best lobster bisque I've ever had. Don't fill up too much on the salad bar or you wont have room for dinner!

“Special anniversary night ruined by a way too average place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

April, 28th. We just left the restaurant and we want to make sure to share our experience. Because everyone was talking about it, because the excellent reviews on trip advisor we decided to make a reservation for our first year anniversary. And if I am spending my time writing about it just after I left the restaurant, it means that something was exceptionally good. Or not. And that was the case.

As soon as we arrived free valet parking: the guy opened the door for us and made us feel like VIP. And let's be honest, when you go out, to celebrate something special like a first year anniversary, you want to feel special.

So we got off on the right foot, but this foot kicked us back to reality as soon as we entered the restaurant. The lady that checked us in didn't make any eye contact with us, she asked us if it was true that we were celebrating our anniversary (my husband made a reservation, hoping that the server would have done something to celebrate), she didn't congratulate us, she gave us the buzzer and told us to wait. Not a smile, not a glance at us. Possibly, We were too ugly to be acknowledged. Possibly, she should learn how to work in the service industry.

The hostess that walked us to the table was very nice and she told us happy anniversary. She was very kind and made a pleasant walk toward the table. Heaven again? Not really.

Our server was ok. Again, even if the ticket on our table said it was our anniversary, no one seemed really to care. So my question is, why even bothering asking about the phantomatic occasion to be celebrated? Unsolved Mystery.

He took our drinks order: he asked us if we would care for some flat or sparkling water. My husband asked for the second one. The server came back with a bottle. We are not really people that like to complain, so we didn't say anything. Just, it would have been nice to be asked. (6 dollars, for 28 oz).

Again, we received a better service and a more genuine smile from people we would expect it less. The gauchos were very polite and look sharp even if they were "just" serving meat.

The meat was good, but let's be honest: for two normal people that eat a normal amount of meat you are STUFFED after the first round of meats, without even eating too much on the salad bar (where, by the way, there was no buffalo mozzarella, as instead was stated on the website).

Half full and half disappointed we asked for the check. At the beginning of the meal we informed the server about a 25$ coupons, money that were not taken off our bill. We reminded the server and, magically, the manager appeared (no sign of any of them during the dining), and gave us the discount.

After reading a lot of reviews and have been in a lot of restaurants all over Orlando we are way way too disappointed to recommend it or even come back. It might have been just a bad night for them, but as slow as it was, we really think they could have make some more efforts.

Too bad.
