Estancia Churrascaria Brazilian Steakhouse - Arboretum Ratings and Reviews

It is a huge restaurant, but there were not many other patrons there. We were swarmed by the servers, in fact, we would count to see how long it took someone to show up at our table after we turned our card over to green. Usually, it was less than 30 seconds before two, three or four showed up. The meats and selection were okay, but not great. The price was very high. For a family of five it was $441. Bring your big wallet. We selected this restaurant because they offered a 1,000 point bonus, but as soon as I paid my $441 bill, I got an email that my reservations had be "successfully cancelled", along with the 1,000 points. OpenTable restored my points right away, but be sure the restaurant doesn't 'accidentally' cancel your reservation.

This is my third time at Estancia Churrascaria, and I'd go back for more. The 1st two times I went there purely for the meat - it is, after all, a steakhouse, and a really good one at that.
This time, I went just for the salad, and it was excellent too.
In the past, the meats have been delicious, cooked just right with plenty of variety for all of us in the family. I like my meat surprised and running, my wife likes it medium and my daughter likes it well done. There are always options for all of us, and the types, cuts and seasonings have been very good.
The salad bar is varied, fresh and delicious, and replenished frequently. The salmon and meat cuts were excellent, as were the cheese platters. I'd definitely go there again, both for the salad and because I miss the meat.
The service, as always, was exceptional. The servers were friendly, courteous, patient, helpful and knowledgeable. The seating hostess was gracious, and seated us at a table of our choice even though we reached 20 minutes ahead of our reservation.

Absolutely amazing service and food. Their wine list was incredible and great drinks too! I can't get over how prompt all the waitstaff was! If I got out of my seat, someone was right there to push my chair in and replace my napkin to my lap!

Our experience started by being seated next to the loudest man in the restaurant, then in comes a group of 20+ people with at least 6 kids. We love kids but had not been out without ours in over a year and were hoping for a quiet night out. The waiters stood directly behind out table talking the whole time and we could not have a decent conversation. They also should realize the blonde, blue eyed, white girl can understand everything you say! Overall we had a miserable experience and the meat was overcooked and not worth the price. Really disappointed as I had heard so many good things.
As always, the staff were incredibly att ...
As always, the staff were incredibly attentive but not overbearing. The salad bar has been improved recently, and the asparagus broccoli soup was out of this world. The meats? I don't even know how to begin describing how delectable all of the different meats are. I have never had a cut which was not absolutely fantastic. This is our go-to place for special events, celebrations, and romantic dates.

Estancia Churrascaria Brazilian Steakhouse never disappoints.
We always do a weekday lunch as it is only $33/person.
At that price it is a value for the quality and quantity of food you receive.
Service is always beyond exceptional.
Bring a big appetite and prepare for your very own "Carnivore Coma".

We went to Estancia Churrascaria for my husband's birthday and the food and service were excellent. We're both picky when it comes to meat and we each found our favorite cuts and temperature. The New York Cheesecake was excellent too!

The food was a little disappointing. i prefer my beef to be medium cooked, but got medium rare. When I specifically specified medium, I still received medium rare, and one cut was rare. Overall, the service and ambiance was excellent. I highly recommend the Estancia for special occasions.

We met for lunch celebrate Fathers' Day and the place was very crowded and noisy. Made reservation for 2pm and arrived on time but did not get seated until 30 minutes later. The food and service were both good but we got charged full dinner price for a lunch meal; the website did not indicate that Fathers Day will have higher price! Drinks were made in bulk and sold for $12. I even got charged for the coffee that they offered after the meal which did not taste good and over priced. I doubt if I would ever return after this experience!

I went there for father's day lunch. We were seated promptly, however once we were seated, the wait staff seemed to have forgotten about us. We had our cards turned on green for about 15 minutes before anyone ever came over. We finished our drinks and went almost 20 minutes for a refill, after we had asked a passing waiter for a refill. We ordered desert for the kids, they never got their ice cream. I've been here before, and have never had bad service. Needless to say, we didn't really enjoy Father's day lunch there this year.

Food was on. I felt that the waiter was a little put out and he did come around much. Our mashed potatoes were cold and I had to ask for the cheese bread. I'd come back again just not in a Saturday before a holiday. It was my birthday dinner and I wasn't impressed.

Great for meat lovers. We eat here fairly often (every 6 months or so) and have always had great service. The only service issue we've had is my wife likes to keep her salad plate while she eats the main course. We probably had 10 waiters ask if they could take her plate. Hardly a gripe, but amusing. They have one of the top 2 salad bars in Austin and their meats are fantastic. Fogo is a more well known Brazilian steakhouse, and it used to be that the only thing that Fogo offered that Estancia didn't was the ribeye. Estancia now has a ribeye and offers all that the other joint does, but in a location that avoids the hustle and bustle of downtown. We've been to Estancia 9 or 10 times and their competitor twice. Ate there 3 days ago and I'm ready to go back... but alas, it will be a while.

My husband and I have been to this restaurant many times and we are never disappointed. The salad bar is fresh and has a wide variety, they have an excellent selection of steaks, and the dessert is scrumptious! I have convinced MANY friends to try it and they all love it as well. I have never been disappointed in the service, the food, or been shocked by my bill. I have a couple of times been distracted by the noise from others if it's busy, but it does not happen often and it could be personal preference as we tend to stray away from crowds. Estancia DOES have kid-friendly options such as fries, bananas, sodas, etc. While it is not a place I feel is meant for children, I have run into the problem of making a reservation and then right before it was time to go realizing we had to bring the babies with us. They were very kind to the children and brought out food catered to them - we heard no complaints. Definitely two thumbs up!!

Food was excellent. All the meats were good; the one I didn't care for (1 out of what? 15?) was simply due to my not caring for it - it was prepared well. The salad bar was excellent. We had excellent service. The only things that could make it better would be a cardiologist on staff and someone else paying for it.

FOOD GREAT COST AT LUNCH MENU OK DON'T ORDER ANY DRINKS OTHER THAN WATER AVOID DESSERTS AS THIS WILL SET YOU BACK 10.00 EACH. FOR THE PRICE TEA AND DESSERT SHOULD BE WITH THE MEAL. WILL NEVER GO BACK AGAIN. GO TO A GOOD STEAK HOUSE.
