Estancia Churrascaria Brazilian Steakhouse - Arboretum Ratings and Reviews

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.

This was a nice place located in a nice area. The ambiance was pleasant. I have been to another Brazilian steakhouse in Fort Worth, so my standards were pretty high going in. The salad bar was adequate and everything I tried was good. I just didn't think it was an ample salad bar. The house special meat was extremely good, but the filet was ridiculously overcooked. They had dozens of people walking around with chicken and sirloin and only one guy walking around with lamb, which took 20 minutes despite repeated asking. Our waiter was phenomenal. The cocktail was too bitter for my taste. It was an experience and I wouldn't discourage anyone from going, but I'll never go there again because I feel I have had better elsewhere.

I have always been a huge fan of this type of steak house. This one is step above others I've been to, including ones in Vegas! There was not one aspect or detail that wasn't perfect and I was extremely satisfied with the suggestion that I upgrade to a better quality wine. I will definitely be returning.

I booked a reservation for 4. It was a ladies group celebrating a birthday. We had the most wonderful experience possible. Our experience was perfect -- and all of the food and service was the best it could possibly be.
We had a wonderful time, and will definitely return again and again.

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!
