We took a friend visiting from Maine, unfortunately this was not the best night.(We had reservations and seated promptly) Had to request the same items several times. Did not carry a White Zinfandel which is what our guest wanted. Requested coffee several times, dessert menu several times and plantains refills several times. Yes they were busy, non the less disappointing. We've been here many times, and have come to appreciate the wonderful service we always receive.

Salad bar was good, but I have seen better at other Brazilian steak houses. Meats were a little over cooked and under seasoned. Both beef and poultry were a little dry. Service just okay. The waiter made a mistake on our desert order, and his reaction was a little rude. Also, the atmosphere is a little too much like a chain restaurant and not what you would expect for a $45 price fix per person location. I would go back, but I would expect a little better next time.

We arrived almost a hour earlier than our reservation, greeted, welcomed and seated. We didn't want to cook for Thanksgiving and this was the perfect decision. Atmosphere, service and food were great along with the beverage suggestions.

Thanksgiving dinner was made special by Estancia Churrascaria.
Most of my group had never been here before. They totally enjoyed it.
We arrived a half hour early but were promptly seated.
I have and will continue to recommend Estancia to friends.

Awesome. We went with Estancia this year rather than the traditional Thanksgiving dinner at home. That means no shopping, no cooking, no loss of sleep, no cleaning up and sooooo much more food to pile on your plate, there's no way you can try everything... there's just too many choices AND they had smoked carved turkey for Thanksgiving Day. Service was no less than perfect. Very possibly a new family holiday tradition. A BIG hit with the family!

Terrible choice for Thanksgiving. Normal well-timed service was cranked up to frenzied level. Obviously looking to turn the tables, yet there were no customers waiting. Terrible wait for turkey and pumpkin pie. Steaks were greasy.Salad bar was missing Hearts of Palm. Lunch was jacked up to $49 per head for 2:00 reservations. Very disappointing.

We dined here on Thanksgiving Fay @ lunch. Excellent idea! Great food & exceptional service. Two suggestions that could make the experience better: 1) do not cram so many tables into the main dining room. Waitstaff kept bumping our chairs. For over 2 hours. Not cool.
2) inform your patrons that the specialty cocktails/drinks being passed around in trays are for a high price! We believed they were complementary then we saw almost $12 EACH on our bill. This is a deceptive practice.
Otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed the food & the relaxation of being served on Thanksgiving. Thanks for bring open!
I had made a reservation at the Estancia ...
I had made a reservation at the Estancia Churrascaria for my boyfriend's 30th birthday celebration dinner. When I scheduled the reservation over a week prior, I notated/commented that it was for a birthday celebration and would enjoy some sort of special dessert or candles at the end of the meal. To be sure that things would be arranged, I called the restaurant the day of my reservation and spoke with a hostess to remind her about a special birthday for our party. She ensured me that there would be a dessert brought to the table after dining. After we ate, there was nothing. I was trying to make it a surprise for my boyfriend so felt uncomfortable asking the waitstaff then and there right in front of him.
On top of that, during dinner, I was waiting for a particular type of meat to come around and was asked by two people (one was a manager I believe) if they could bring it out for us and I had to request the meat twice before somebody brought it out to our table.
I did NOT feel like the price was worth it and on top of that, it didn't feel like a special birthday dinner, which was really upsetting given the amount of the final bill. I chose Estancia over Fogo de Chao because I wanted to try something new, but now I know better and will not be coming back.

Delicious food, very attentive staff. Came for our 5 year anniversary and we're very impressed with the perfect and distinct seasoning for each meat. Loved the complimentary dessert and champagne at the end. Strongly recommend the lemoncello as well!

Visited for anniversary and Wife's birthday. Accompanied by adult Daughter and her boyfriend. Salad bar and sides provided an excellent option for Daughter's vegetarian diet. The remaining carnivores were in meat heaven. Entire staff's (Hostesses, Floor Managers, Waiters, Bus Staff and especially roaming Gauchos caeving cuts of beef, pork, lamb and chicken) commitment to attentive service and creating a memorable dining experience is unmatched. We were never rushed to finish. We were never without a beverage. And, whenever a particular cut of meat was requested, a floor supervisor would immediately locate and direct a server with that cut to us. After superb adult beverages, unbelievable salad bar, and choice meats and sides we were topped off with a decadent selection of deserts and coffees. There were no request for breakfast or lunch the next day. A bit pricey, but worth every penny for the experience of being treated as thouk your patronage is truly appreciated. Looking forward to our next visit.

It is a very inviting atmosphere. The salad bar has a wide variety of vegetables, cold cuts and cheeses. It would be perfect if it had fruit and flan. The staff is very friendly and the service superb. The bacon wrapped fillet minion was drying out and even tuff to cut. The second round of parmesan pork was also dry. We did notify one gentleman on the wait staff.

This place was amazing ! It's my boyfriends birthday so as a surprise I took him . The service is no joke if you flip that card to green be prepared to be over run by people trying to give you meat ! The salad bar was enough to be worth the high price ! The people were amazing ! The only negative I have is maybe don't talk people into ordering more alcoholic beverages when they are already drunk and yelling across the whole restaurant. Other then that this place will be a yearly tradition!

It was epic! The picanha (house specialty cut) was exquisite, the filet mignon was tender, and the fried bananas were caramelized to a perfect crisp. Everyone working there showed interest in making sure we were all happy and satisfied. I am not a big drinker, but I had a glass of something called 43, which was first set on fire to caramelize the sugars. Amazing! And then truly the best creme brulee I have had. My birthday dinner could not have been better.
Great value for the price and the staff ...
Great value for the price and the staff was very accommodating. We were late for our original reservation, however, we were seated and served as if we'd been on time. Very good food and served at the right intervals. No hovering which allowed our business guest to discuss with us and for us to share with him without having to raise our voices. We felt respected and cared for. The wine list was excellent. One of our party has the dietary restriction of being gluten free and this was easily accommodated. The choices were more than expected and each of our party left satisfied.

We have been going to Estancia now for the last 3 years!! We love it!! The food is always great tasting, the staff very attentive and the atmosphere is just right!! Thank you Estancia for making our special occasions magical!! See you soon😃
If you're super, extremely, mega hungry ...
If you're super, extremely, mega hungry and don't mind paying a little more for some top-notch cuts of meat, I'd recommend Estancia Churrascaria. Don't fill up at the salad bar if you're in the mood for meat. There is plenty to go around.
Once you get situated and the waiter explains how things are done, you flip your little card over from red to green, then watch as several guys come over to shove their meat in your face and ask if you want more. As you eat his meat, several other guys come over and present their meat. These Brazilian guys have so much tasty meaty flavors, it's hard to choose which to shove in my mouth. I've never been stuffed by so many guys in my life.
Take your wife! She'll love watching you get stuffed, and she might take some meat from several guys too!
Overall, great experience! I'd recommend it to all my friends.

We were introduced to Estancia many years ago, when they had a location in South Austin. We are sad that they are no longer close to home (we live in Buda), but the north location is WELL worth the drive. They are one of our go-to choices, for special occasions and a good splurge every now and then. We love the atmosphere, we have never had anything but spectacular service, and the quality of the food is not only amazing, but consistent.
You won't be disappointed!

$200 dinner for 2 was outrageous, no one would specify what the "fixed price" was for the 2 course meal. We were bombarded by waitstaff: 1 waitress, 1 annoying Asian server that kept hovering around my girlfriend and couldn't pronounce anything correctly, 1 manager who came by 2/3 times to ask howeverything was, 1 bus boy and 5 extra servers who sliced the meat at the table. Basically, there lots of people rushing around us and it was the antithesis of relaxing.

We always enjoy returning to Estancia Churrascaria for special-occasion dinings. The staffs are top notch and treat you as if you are the only person dining there! The Brazilian-style foods are excellent and they have great wine offerings to boot! Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to celebrate or just want an occasional great food.
