Estancia Churrascaria Brazilian Steakhouse - Arboretum Ratings and Reviews
We came here to celebrate or 2 yr Anniversary and they were above and beyond accommodating. They sat us in a closed section of the dining area which they did not have to do, the staff was very courteous and friendly. This will Definitely be a go to place for us and the food was amazing!
Great food and selection. We have always received excellent service but our last visit was the exception. My husband's cup of coffee was empty most of the meal, we had to continuously flag someone down for refills. They did bring him a small pot but he empty that in a hurry. My water glass was empty most of my meal. 3 different servers told my husband that they would return with a filet medium rare, he didn't get one until he asked a fourth server.
Keep in mind our service was the exception and as always the food was fantastic. The key lime pie is delicious! We will be back.
Have been going there last four years for my birthday with the whole family. This year was different food wasn't as tasty, most meat over cooked dried not a lot of variety we love the keg of lamb n lamb chops had to wait long period of time waited over 20min for parm pork. Just not the same serves was not like the past waited on cheese bread etc... I think next year we will go try a different place.
I've been here a few times, and it's always a wonderful experience. The wait staff and management is so nice and accommodating. I went there with my boyfriend and my sister to celebrate her birthday. At the very end of our meal my sister opened her present at the table and within a few minutes someone came by with complementary champagne to toast to the occasion and a special dessert just for her. They apologized for not noticing that it was her birthday before hand and they seemed genuinely upset that they hadn't. We weren't expecting that at all, it was a very special dinner for her and she couldn't stop talking about it afterwards. They really went above and beyond our expectations. Thank you Estancia for such a beautiful and memorable birthday dinner.
Was on travel to the Austin area and one of my coworkers wanted to go to a steakhouse for dinner. Most of the choices were chain steakhouses. We wanted something different, we were not let down. At first the price was a little off setting but once we sat down to eat it was clear that this was a bargain. Great food, great atmosphere and the staff was outstanding. Next time I'm in Austin this is one my list for return visits. Highly recommended.
Service was excellent! Very attentive. The wine menu has a good mix of variety. Food was very good, though a few pieces of pork did have some grizzle. Overall A+. Dessert was delightful. I will be back in Austin this October and will have dinner there again!
Meat. If you don't like or eat meat, this is not your restaurant. If you like meat, this may be your little piece of heaven on earth. We ended up spending a little over a hundred dollars for each of us, but nearly half of our bill was alcohol, and that included a $60 bottle of wine and a $25 glass of port. Only two of us were actually drinking, for a total of three mixed drinks.
The meats were delicious and perfectly done to our satisfaction. The service was on a par with the best I've ever seen. The side dishes that came out from time to time were amazing. Next time, though, I don't think we'll be doing any drinking other than tea! We'll certainly be going back for some occasion or other, but it's definitely not your, "Oh, I don't care. You pick!" kind of place.
Wow, these folks raised the bar for 5-star ratings. The food and service are impeccable.
On top of the outstanding service my table received, I witnessed the waiters treating an elderly woman in a wheelchair and her dining companion with such care and respect. They were seated at the table in front of ours and the service to them and to us was exceptional.
The service, food, and ample free parking make this the only choice for Brazilian Steakhouse in Austin!
My husband and I treated our 3 respectful and courteous adult sons to a special birthday dinner. I was completely offended that a 20% gratuity was automatically added to our bill AND then they had the nerve to have a spot on the bill to add additional gratuity! We ordered pre dinner drinks and a bottle of wine with dinner so this wasn't an inexpensive meal. We would have likely tipped 18-20% anyway but instead of the tip being freely given, we will NEVER go back to this restaurant. (even if it is a free business dinner.)
Love the restaurant. Very different than the experience when I am in Brazil. The beef is generally very tasty. The beef garlic and filet mignon are very good. I was extremely disappointed with the pork, and especially the chicken which were extremely dry and without the extreme flavor experienced elsewhere. The lamb chops were very OVER done but the specialty lamb was hit and miss dry. If you are looking for a good salad buffet, they have a very nice buffet. If you are looking for moist and juicy meats, I would not recommend this resturant until they do something with the kitchen. Much less Portuguese, and more Spanish spoken, but a very pleasant place to sit for a meal. Very over priced for the quality of the food. And this has been a trend with this resturant over the last year and a half. I wish I had a better review, but seriously, if you read these reviews to hope to get the truth and not a marketing play, like I do, then you will understand why I currently do not recommend this resturant.
We had a great dinner to celebrate our Anniversary. A rude customer entered the restaurant and took her seat while talking on her phone very loudly. This lasted for a constant 30 mins until we and others had management move us to a different section of the restaurant. The rude customer continued talking on her phone for at least an hour. In my opinion Management should have asked her to take her phone call outside. The food and service were fantastic.
No better ambiance you can find elsewhere in foodie haven Austin. Nice to showcase Austin as a world class international city with Brazilian and South American culinary tinge. The servers and lead floor manager were superb in pampering my and our guests needs. It is kind of pricey but it is well worth it and well come back in a heartbeat. Thanks Estancia mgmt and crew!
