Estancia Churrascaria Brazilian Steakhouse - Arboretum Ratings and Reviews
We were introduced to Estancia many year ...
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.

We celebrated our anniversary here a few weeks ago.. It was pretty good, so we decided to take our 23 year old son here for his birthday. It was on a Wed. night, so not sure if that had an impact on the quality of food or what. But the 'med. rare' meat was overcooked and dry...again, maybe there weren't enough people there to keep the meat turned over. We specifically requested 'rare', but then it came out practically raw. Maybe they just had an OFF-night. But for those prices, I will go to Fogo.

Many of the meats were much dryer and less flavorful than on previous visits (in particular the lamb was overcooked to the point of being inedible). The service staff was attentive to the point of being annoying about offering meats, but slow to clear the table. Drink prices were ridiculous. A bar bill for 6 total drinks was equivalent to the prix fixe meal pricing for two. This has been the go-to restaurant where my mother and I have celebrated our birthdays for the last 4 years, but after our last experience we've decided to find a new place for 2017.

This was absolutely amazing. It was my boyfriends 30th birthday and we couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. The timing of the meal, the staff, the constant manager check in - they even offered us a free birthday dessert and champagne. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect meal and evening.

Romantic birthday dinner date. Food was delicious - many options of meats and many options on the salad bar. Service was superb. Staff really went above and beyond to ensure our visit was delightful. They provided us new clean plates as needed, new drinks before our glasses were empty, even went to refill a bowl of veggies from the salad bar. After hearing that we were celebrating a birthday, they had offered us any dessert, on the house. After dessert, the manager also came by and provided us two flutes of champagne. LOVED Estancia and will definitely return. Just not too soon due to pricing.

The food was mostly good, some of the cuts of meat were a bit bland, some were dry. The bacon wrapped filet mignon was overcooked to the point of being tasteless and tough. The house special "picanha" was almost flavorless. However, bottom sirloin, the ribeye, and the lamb chops were great.
Service was a bit odd. Our assigned waiter was very good and personable, but other than him everyone just seemed kind of unhappy. It was just a bit strange and not what I expect for such a pricy establishment.
They did give us a complimentary dessert and champagne for my birthday which was appreciated. Overall while it was a decent experience, I don't think I'd go again. It was a very expensive dinner and I wasn't blown away by the quality or service.

We came here for my boyfriends birthday and really enjoyed ourselves. The service was excellent, super fast, and the food--my god the food. Where else can you get 8 kinds of steak in one night? Will definitely be back.

This is a wonderful restaurant. The food is excellent. The only thing possibly the outshines the food is the service. I can't stress how attentive they are. They are clearly prided on customer service because it shows. Terrific experience. I recommend to anyone.

The server coming by with pre made cocktails we didn't order in an effort to upswell was both low class and unbecoming of a serious dining establishment. It happened once again after we had finished eating. This time with after dinner drinks. A huge put off to say the least. Everything in between these two events was mediocre. Not happy with the experience and would not recommend.
The attentiveness of the waitstaff alone ...
The attentiveness of the waitstaff alone is worth the price. Our every need was anticipated. Each staff member was friendly, knowledgeable, and QUICK! THe manager made the rounds to ensure patrons were satisfied.
The food was perfect. The salad bar is an adventure with a little bit of everything. I loved the variety of cheeses.
And of course the meats were amazing. Everything was perfect. I'm not a big meat eater but I wanted to treat my husband. He was in heaven, and I wasn't far behind. Remembering the top sirloin (Alcatra) is making my mouth water right now.
I would definitely recommend Estancia Churrascaria. It's not just a meal, it's an experience!

I had a wonderful time here. The service was astounding, I could think of nothing better for an anniversary. And the food... A straight 10 out of 10! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for great food and an unique experience. But, be warned, you may want to skip a meal before coming here! The food is abundant.

We had an incredible time. The food was excellent. The service was top notch. We are in town visiting from Dallas and eat Brazilian frequently there. This is the best food and service at A Brazilian steakhouse that we have ever experienced. We will be back the next time we are in Austin!!

The food is always delicious and this time was no different. We were there for a birthday party and there were only 2 outstanding issues:
1. The meat temperature was not right. I ordered Medium Rare and got extra Rare. Medium Well was medium rare. Not a big deal for me but several people at my table had to send it back or just leave it on the plate uneaten.
2. Everyone was drinking their own drinks but the waiters kept pushing the menu on me to order a bottle for the table. Several times I told them no one at the table would be drinking wine and they still persisted. Became annoying to have to answer the same question 20 times.
