Estancia Churrascaria Brazilian Steakhouse - Arboretum Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
The food was good, but there was not a variety of meats coming to my table that often... I got served meat every 15-20 minutes... so I didn't get to try most of what was offered.. I understand that it was Valentine's Day and it was packed, but the servers were not serving meat evenly... or at least not coming around my section of the restaurant... I got served meat like four times the whole hour to hour and a half that I was there... so I paid like $150.00 for some salad for me and my date and about four rounds of meat each...I was disappointed about that... overall I had good service, I got sat in good timing. I am skeptical about going back.
Well we went there for valentines day. By far the worst experience we have ever had there! We were ignored all night long, was supposed to get 13 options of meat choices only came by with 3. Then passed by us everytime. Asked for water for mid dinner took 20 minutes to get. After almost two hours we asked for our check and it took forever! Im really upset when you spend almost 200$ on a meal and can get better service at jack in the box!
Valentine's Dinner was great. Lots of great food brought to the table. The portions are enough to get a taste and determine if you want more the next time they come around. We took our time and never felt any pressure to pay our bill and leave. Definitely glad we made an early reservation as there was a LONG line waiting when we left.
Our Lunch at Estancia Churrascaria Brazilian Steakhouse - Arboretum was great. The service is always EXCELLENT, the food is always very good (although the pork tenderloin was a bit dry this time). The salad bar alone is enough to fill anyone one up, and I love, love the sun-dried tomatoes but if you add in the meats you won't walk away hungry. My husband and I only go here on special occasions or to celebrate an event/milestone because the price is a little bit up there, however, I do believe the prices is worth every penny - especially if you are not in a hurry and want to eat, enjoy the experience, food, and conversation. We are never disappointed.
Although I go here with my husband, I wouldn't say its the most romantic environment because the tables are a bit close together, and there really isn't any privacy. I wouldn't recommend for a first date but once you are comfortable with your significant other then its great!
This restaurant is a favorite. It's great for a special occasion or just if you're really hungry. It's fancy, but still we've always seen diners in ball caps and torn up blue jeans. Kind of ruins the elegance! The food is always top-notch! The GM came over to make sure everything was good, and we enjoyed talking to him. Come hungry!
I came to this place with a few people from my Samsung group and I was not at all satisfied.
I asked the runner guy with the meat for medium well bottom sirloin and he got an attitude with me after I said I did not want the rare steak he was serving. My and my group was eating and one of the guys came over to the table and started taking items off the table that we were not even finished with eating.
The hosts, waiters, and servers were very attentive to us, and provided outstanding service. The selection of meats were delicious, and I also recommend trying their signature cocktail, the Caipirinha. Consisting of fresh limes and rum, it is similar to a mojito without the mint leaves. It was quite busy, but the ambiance was still dark and romantic. Most of the customers there were dressed up nicely, and appropriate for the atmosphere and pricing. However, I was quite put off by a couple of idiots from different parties wearing their baseball caps indoors at the table, while they ate. They made an otherwise very classy dinner, feel less so.
Overall, I would completely recommend this place for any date night or special occasion.
$50 per person for all the meat and sides you can eat, about $12 for each cocktail, and about $40 and up, for a bottle of wine.
It was very dark in the restaurant, the buffet was nice, service was very good, but it is very expensive and when we left, my husband picked up his hat which had felt on the floor, and there was a big black bug inside (maybe that's why the lights were not that bright)
I absolutely love this place and would recommend this place to anyone. The service is honestly what keeps me coming back. Don't get me wrong the food is amazing but the service is outstanding, they are all so well educated and passionate about what they do. 5 stars in my book.
Everything was tough. Only the shrimp, lamb chops, and chicken were chewable.
I told two managers about it and they were less than receptive. I don't normally leave food on my plate but I did this time. A lot!
Rib eye, tough.
Beef ribs, tough.
Leg of lamb, tough.
Fortunately, the salad bar was good.
As well, our server was there through the drinks then we never saw him again.
I've eaten at this restaurant many times and never experienced this tough of food before. Too bad.
Wow! This was our second time as a family celebrating a birthday. It was amazing service was impeccable, food was amazing. I have 5 boys and grandkids that are carnivores and thoroughly enjoyed how different meats just kept coming. So tender and deliscous. If you have someone that is vegan they will enjoy salad bar so many delectable choices
The hostess left something to be desired but the waitress and rest of the staff was phenomenal! Food was great. Never had to wait for my food. Once my card was green, I was presented with options. If I went too long without choosing, there was someone to check on me to see what I needed. I will definitely be back!
I have never been to a Brazilian steakhouse before, so I didn't know what to expect. Everything from the service to outstanding food was tremendous. Even the restaurant manager walks around and greets all the customers. Classy place to take your loved to. 5 star food.
I enjoyed the service and food. This is our second time and the quality of food is better every time. I wish there was an area for a quiet date night with less noise. We went for our anniversary and we really couldn't enjoy each others company because we were surrounded by large parties that were really loud. Our waiter even had a hard time getting our drink order and I couldn't hear the servers when they were bringing out the meat, so I don't really know what I tried. The whole staff was great and very friendly. We do plan on coming back but maybe not on a busy night.
Meat servers moved too quickly amongst tables, usually missing that one or more of our party had their cards turned green-side up (i.e., ready to be served). Therefore, we didn't get as much or the variety of meats that we had wanted, which was disappointing. Otherwise, no complaints.
