Taurinus Brazilian Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews

We went there on a rainy Sunday night. It was not crowded and the noise level was not unpleasant. The array of food on the salad bar was more than adequate. I have been to a number of Brazilian style restaurants. The carved meats were good but not exceptional. The flavor of the carved lacked distinction. Service was more than adequate, friendly and professional.

I have been to quite a few Brazilian Steakhouses before and this particular location about 3 times. The first time here I had an amazing experience, the second time was good, the most recent was just okay. We had made a reservation for 8pm on a Saturday night for a birthday and we arrived early and still had to wait for a table to get set up, so we didn't get seated until almost 8:30pm. The meats came out really slow and they were all medium but was definitely rare just a bit seared on the outside. We had to ask them many times to cook our meats a bit longer, so we played the waiting game. The service was also slow for a Saturday night, our server checked in on us maybe once after we ordered our drinks. Definitely feel as if the quality and service has gone down. Not sure if I'd come back here.

Was a great time for me and my friends who flew in for the football game. We went there to strap our feed bags on and were not disappointed. Food was great, and the staff was friendly. The reason for the downgraded scores were that the service why they were friendly it was very slow. It was very busy, there was that, but to constantly be waiting on the next steak in a Brazilian steak house is hard. It was also VERY loud in there. So do not be expecting some cozy place when everyone has to yell to be heard.

Very nice restaurant in a not so very nice neighborhood. Friendly and welcoming service. Would've enjoyed a few more meat options for lunch and we feel the price is a tad on the high side. Although we really enjoy the charcoal and subtle smoky flavor of the meats, we did find everything too salty.

Great food and the meat is very tasty and endless. Salads are very fresh too.
Service is great and the water and iced tea are always topped off quickly. Good for a fast lunch since there's no menu and you can walk in and grab a plate and eat immediately.
Desserts are excellent too.

So, I decided to take my Father here for his 81 B-day. Neither myself or my Father have ever had Brazilian food. We had the lunch buffet and weren't disappointed. The meat selection was excellent. The salad ball was an mixture of salads and fresh fruit. The waiting staff were exceptional. Definetly exceeded our expectations. First timers, but we will be back...

The service was very good. The food was decent. The meats are properly cooked. Biggest, and probably the only, complaint is that the tastes are on the lighter side. Been to other Brazilian steakhouses and was expecting more flavors. The cooked surfaces are well seasoned but the interior meat was just too blend. Wish they had marinated or infused more seasoning into the meats. But overall it's not bad.

Really disappointing. Meat was poorly seasoned and all cuts tasted the same. Drinks were overpriced and the service was slow to non-existent. Enormous pricetag close to $200 for really low quality. Never returning

Taurinus food was delicious. The ambience was nice, quiet, low lighting. More of a fine dining atmosphere. Not a place I would come every week because it will set you back about $50 per person not including drinks but we will return on occasion.

A lively atmosphere & great food. We left stuffed with delicious sides of salads, vegetables, traditional black bean stew, and the never ending servings of meat. It was lots of fun to try the different cuts of beef, chicken and pork. It was an experience we will always remember.

Having been to Fogo de Chao, I was curious how this place would compare. I can now say it's better than Fogo. The meat was juicy and flavorful. The salad bar was fantastic. And I loved the chimichurri sauce. Great desserts too. Definitely a place to return.

It's a typical Brazilian churrascaria - Brazilian BBQ. There's a big salad bar with hot side dishes (including yummy paella with actual seafood) that is meant to fill you up. Then they come around with endless meats - 14 different cuts of beef, chicken, lamb, and pork....and grilled pineapple. Maybe a bit generic, but the food tastes delicious. It is all you can eat, and it is expensive; so plan ahead.

The sirloin (picanha) was excellent! I tried the chicken heart in the spirit of adventure but it's not really my kind of thing-- more like organ meat. Pork loin and red wine marinaded steak were a little tough. Delicious grilled asparagus at the salad bar. Dessert (Brazilian crepes with mango syrup on top) was amazing.

It was just okay. Food was good - actually enjoyed the salad bar more than most of the cuts of meat. I kept asking for rare but was served more well done than not. The noise level was horrible - and it wasn't all that full or busy. No round tables - only long, so it was difficult to speak with our party at each end.

I brought my family and we had a very pleasant experience. We received a very warm accommodation by the staff and restaurant owner who visited our table several times to ensure that we are enjoying our dining experience. I will certainly come back again for great food and service.

If you are a meat lover, you will love this restaurant. We enjoyed trying the various meat options brought around by the servers. The sides and salad bar was excellent. Plenty of sides and salads to choose from. Will definitely visit again for the next special occasion.
Mother's Day brunch
We had a very enjoyable lunch. In addition to the wine list and salad bar, the meat selection was quite satisfying. The breads were less so, but those were not a major consideration for us.
One really has to try all the meat offerings to get the full experience. We were surprised by what we found most satisfying. The chicken, sausage, and parmesan pork ended up being our favorites. Some of the beef was a bit too chewy, though tasty enough.

Everything was so delicious and service was great!!! Eder took real good care of us! He recommended a really good drink to my boyfriend that he loved so much he got another. We mentioned we came down to celebrate our anniversary and we were given a complimentary dessert. He always made sure I had iced tea and checked to make sure we were okay. All cuts of meat were flavorful and juicy. My favorites were the pork and beef ribs, sirloin and leg of lamb. My boyfriend loved the filet mignon, filet mignon with wrapped bacon, leg of lamp, and top sirloin. All the sides we're delicious! The Brazilian stew was amazing, collard greens, and mango salad. I loved the fresh prosciutto, fried polenta and fried plantains!

Did not like the crowd
Service was good
Did not taste the red meat
Chicken hearts, desserts and salad bar at the fogo de chao level but not quite pampas
Maybe back for some desserts of which the peanut butter piece and chocolate mousse were our favorites
Shout out to bartender for making caipirinha dry
We went on a quiet Sunday afternoon.
The food was actually much better than Fogo de Chao, however, it seems like the energy was pretty low as it was quiet in San Jose usually during weekends. The salad selection seems to be limiting compared to Fogo de Chao. I did like the grilled pineapples which Fogo de Chao did not offer and the meat selection was abundant. It was pricey and perhaps all in all the ambiance didn't make it for me.
This was our second time eating here. We initially came here 6 months ago and picked this place over another Brazilian steakhouse in the area based on the reviews. And this place doesn't disappoint! We always leave full and the staff is very attentive and kind. They made sure to check in with us frequently and were very sincere when asking if there was anything additional they could do for us. Many different choices of meat, pineapple and a salad bar. I loved their spinach strawberry salad! There also is white rice, black beans, salmon and gluten free options.

Service was very good. Food was pretty good. Meats were on the saltier side and not as flavorful as Fogo de Chao.
Good spot that's close to the convention center and walking distance to most major hotels in the area.
