Estancia Churrascaria Brazilian Steakhouse - Arboretum Ratings and Reviews
I took my boyfriend there for his birthday, it was both our 1st time to go there. He loved it, the meats were excellent and there were so many. The service was AMAZING and the servers were super nice. A little pricey but i would expect it that way when you can have as much good meat as you want and salad. I will definitely be going back there again at some point.
As always we had a great experience and we ate until we couldn't anymore. We were celebrating Easter, my birthday and my husband's new job so we were very happy that we had a great experience here. The gauchos were attentive, the wait staff were attentive and 2 managers came by to see if we were satisfied with everything. The salad bar was delicious and they added 4 other side dishes that I should have made room for but could not. It was a very relaxing experience and we plan to return again. Highly recommended. A bit pricey but save those pennies!
Have to go hungry! The meat selection is amazing and so is their salad bar. I would say this is a mear lover place, but their salad and crudités are so abundant and delicious, your vegetarian friends can come along with you as well. The service is impecable and the location is convenient.
Second time in a row I visit this Estancia location and when the bill comes through my credit card is way higher than the amount signed for. When you leave already 20% tip and see other tens of dollars taken without justification, you really are disappointed by the service.
If you are a carnivore this place is great, salad bar is also very nice. The only thing to watch is the bill, small thing considering the overall price, but I've been charged for the "top shelf drink" twice now when I specifically said I didn't want it. Don't know if I got it or not, I can't tell the difference. Overall though we had a nice time.
Very pleased with the restaurant. Nice wine selection., reasonably priced. Salad bar was as expected, about average for a Brazilian steakhouse. However, the proteins were absolutely the best I have eaten, when compared to other popular Brazilian steakhouses. Great selection, tasted outstanding. Not OVERseasoned!!Surprised it wasn't very busy on a Friday night. Oh well, just better service for my group!
The food was great, but one of our servers was very rude. The gentleman who refilled the dinner rolls, potatoes, etc was very nice. But the main server (drinks, desserts) made everyone in my party uncomfortable. He was extremely rude, which I am guessing comes from the fact that he got his tip regardless, since we had a party of 8.
Last time we went the number of people coming by with meat was a lot, this time we seemed to wait a while before someone came by. Last time the waiters were much more attentive, this time they seemed to spend more time talking to each other than coming around to the tables.
I've been to a few steak houses and I think this one has been my favorite. I could not get over how they had someone come to the table and offer drinks; I didn't have to wait or ask- they were ready. The service was so amazing that I nearly forgot about the food! The food was out of this world though. I'm sad now when I look at my meager meals I prepare at home. It was worth the price. I'll probably go again and again for every special occasion.
The salad bar was great and the various meats were delicious! The waiters brought around a tray of caparinias along with the meats offered. By and far though the most remarkable thing about the night was the impeccable service. Anton was amazing! We were taken care of from the moment we walked in. My two boys (3 & 7) were with us, and Anton even found the particular meat he was waiting on and sent the server to our table. I cannot say enough about this restaurant. It's la little pricey, but great for a date night or special occasion. We will definitely return.
We always enjoy the food and the experience. The only thing I could say is pay close attention to the bill. Ever so often we are billed for more drinks than we had or never got. This happens when so many different servers/ managers stop by to see how you're doing. They forget or assume we had more to drink. They correct it immediately when it's brought to their attention and sometimes they take off a dessert or give us a complimentary drink to make up for the error. We still love this place.
Good food - amazing time. Service was not what I expected from previous visits. Took 3 times asking to get tea served to one of the party. After we were done eating and found out that the cream bruilee was not available (the table next to us got the last one), we didn't get our check for an additional 45 min and then was finally brought the check and a tres leche cake we didn't order or know was coming.
Communication between us and the main server was nil due to his "not speaking our language", but the guy that was refilling our drinks was amazing and helpful. We had told the main server three times that one party was missing his tea (two had gotten tea and one water - there were 4 of us). We finally asked the gentleman refilling drinks and he got Pat a tea - well into the main course (after salad, etc.). It was just not the service we had had previously - not bad just not what was expected.
If you like meats, this is the place to come. If you like salads, the salad bar has plenty of choices including smoked salmon and cured meats
I think the whole ambience and food has gotten better since they moved to this location.
Everyone should try this restaurant at least once.
The food was fabulous. They had great options for red meat chicken pork lamb and shrimp. We love the salad bar. The service was spectacular. There was always someone at the table offering as different meats or more to drink. They have an impressive drink menu and top shelf after dinner drink options.
I have tried Fogo de chau in San Antonio for my anniversary, and it was good but if I would have known about Estancia before that I would have surely chosen this place first. Not only is the food so much better but parking is great you don't have to walk far for parking and the environment is so much more pleasing than a mall like environment.
We had to ask for plates and when we got them, one was dirty and the other one wet, we asked to be changed, but they didnt bring it so we had to look for someone to ask for them again..... It seemed to me that because it was somehow crowded, they were not prepared ...... some items in the salad bar were missing and when asked for them the answer was that they ran aout, and the waiters and supervisors looked very nervous and wanted to serve every thing in a big hurry .... We had to ask twice for the waiter with shrimps to come to our table because he always passed by our table in a rush to other area. .. All these made the ambiance to lack of elegance.
This was my second time visiting Estancia and I like it as a place to impress a first time visitor. The staff and setting are great. Overall the food is good. Some cuts of meat are perfect, while others could use some added flavor. The salad bar is very good, with an awesome selection of cheese.
I'd recommend it to a friend, because everyone should eat their at least once. However, there's that frugal part of me that says for the price I can get a big tasty steak dinner at an upscale restaurant, walk away with change and be just as full.
