Texas de Brazil - Pittsburgh Ratings and Reviews

Amazing food and service. Executive Chef Sergio was at the salad bar and walked us through the options. He later visited us at our table to see how we were doing. Loved talking to him and the pride he took in his food and his staff in the kitchen who help to make it all possible. Sunday brunch is an incredible value. Chef Sergio made the most amazing soup I have ever tasted, jalapeño pepper soup. It was the perfect heat. Great service by Jamie as well. She was very pleasant and met our every need. Recommend this for any lunch or dinner!

Showed up early and was seated early. The place was noisy but that was ok. The food bearers were excellent. The meats were very good - anyway u wanted them. Salad bar not as good as the one in Baltimore but acceptable. We will go again in the summer when we can take advantage of the perfect location in the Southside.

It was a fun experience but very loud, active atmosphere. Food was good, service was decent-- although the waiter gave a very much-rehearsed, impersonal and VERY fast hard to understand tutorial on how the whole process worked. I was looking for something a little more intimate and quiet and this was definitely not it. The meat that came around was very good though, and served with a friendly smile and on-demand (barely any waiting) as promised. The experience was too impersonal and factory-like or my taste though. Fun family experience, but It would be a little pricey for a whole family.

My friends and I have dined at Texas de Brazil several times in the past and we have never been disappointed. We made the reservation for 1:30 and were not forced to wait for our reservation time to be seated and begin our experience. We were excited to learn about the new lunch hours and the service was outstanding.

Was a good experience. The place was crowded, as it was last day for restaurant week. We were seated immediately, and, our waitress took time with us to explain how it worked, what she could recommend, etc. I'm happy we finally had the chance to go. Was definitely worth it!

Food was delicious. My only issues are the meats were a little under for my taste. I prefer medium well- well and I with there was something sweet on the salad bar. Maybe fresh fruits or somethimg like that but other than that I loved it!

I always enjoy this place however it would be nice if it was more spacious. I've been there with just 2 people to 6. This is the first time we had a table for 8. But I've seen groups bigger last night. Where they sat us was very uncomfortably cramped. The tables can be a bit more separated. We had to pass each other meet from the spit because the servers couldn't couldn't even squeeze by for everyone to grab it for themselves. Even the servers complained that they couldn't get by. It was an inconvenience to get up to get a plate from the salad bar because we either bumped the people sitting behind us or had to have our friends get up as well so we move in the chairs. Or maybe it was just our table area because we were next to a group of 12 that didn't have the same issue because they were in an open area where they were able to move freely. Suggestion: don't sit a group of people over 6 against a wall.

Had a reservation...they acknowledged this, but seemed very confused. We were seated right inside the door on a really cold day. We asked to be moved, but with many empty tables, we could not move. Why make a reservation?
Service from waitress and gauchos was good.
VERY salty meat!

The good was awesome and the service was really good, I'm just not convinced it was with the price. Maybe just for really occasions. If you go for lunch and only drink water and don't get dessert, it's not too bad for the price. A place like this and you feel like you should do drinks though.

Table only, no booth restaurant. Large salad bar style in middle of restaurant. Waiters walk around with sticks full of different types of meat. This was awesome. Meat was 10/10. They carve it off for you at your table. Salad bar very diverse. Not just salad and fixings. No free refills on soda, pricey but tasty cocktails, delicious dessert. Definitely pricey. Dinner for two amounted to over $150+ That said, would go back. Definitely have to try this if you live near Pittsburgh. In station square.

We went during Restaurant week so our meals were a great value. Our servers - Autumn and her partner were excellent. The meat tenders were very attentive. Several needed to speak louder.. The meat was very good. The salad bar was inventive and well stocked.

Overall great place. I think sometimes it gets a little hectic when there's multiple servers there with the different foods asking if your table wants some. Also were charged full price till we said we were there for restaurant week, then they changed the bill. I get they want to get as many full price meals as possible, by getting people who don't know it's restaurant week, but it feels awkward telling them yeah we're only there because of that.

This was my first time at a Brazilian style steakhouse, so I'm not sure if they are unique to all Brazilian steakhouses, or if they are all this amazing, or not. But, this place was great. Unbelievable food, great service, exceptional environment. I defiantly recommend this place.

This was our second time at Texas de Brazil and the food was great. We went for my fiance's birthday and both the hostess and waiter wished him a happy birthday. The waiter even wrote happy birthday and his name on the dessert which was both thoughtful and appreciated.
When we went it was Pittsburgh Restaurant week and the dinner is discounted to $35 and includes a dessert. When we received our bill it had the full price meal and the dessert as a separate charge. I told our waiter and he said that they would charge the full price unless you mentioned the special. He was happy to apply the discount to our bill, but that strategy left a bad taste in my mouth and will cause me to think twice when recommending to others.

First time we went everything was great. Food was cooked just right. This time I'm pretty sure the meat was out on the floor being served for a while and to say the fillet was dry is an understatement. Also our server didn't come by very often and every time she came I had to ask her for more water and then she'd take forever to get it. Even with a $25 off coupon I feel like we really overpaid!!

Came here for restaurant week and had a great meal! Met a couple of friends who had never been there. Server was very good...she got everything we needed and kept asking if we needed anything. Rayne, our server, kept the water filled and again was very attentive to anything we needed. The managers both checked in on us and we're very nice. The meat was delicious and having 3 different levels of cooking, medium rare, medium well and well done, we all got enough to eat. I have been there a few times and haven't really been disappointed. Tonight we all truly enjoyed ourselves. It was a very relaxing and fulfilling night.

The food was very good and I found the salad bar and lobster bisque quite tasty. Overall I enjoyed the experience more than I expected I would. The only issue I had was that we waited for the bill since the waiter was busy while a number of employees that could have handled that task were chatting at the front desk.

We had a wonderful time celebrating a birthday at this lovely Pittsburgh Churrascaria. The seating was a little snug, but there were that many people here! Wonderful and Unique salad bar. We love the grilled meats and always leave feeling deeply, uncomfortably, full! The wait staff and the circling chefs are all very good at their jobs and are also very friendly and helpful. We've been to this restaurant twice in three weeks. While the price can be steep, the food is worth it.

Our meal at Texas de Brazil was enjoyable and delicious as usual. We consider ourselves foodies but we enjoy the experience of TDB as well as the food. My husband has travelled all over Latin America and he finds Texas de Brazil pretty authentic but with liberties taken, of course. It it is very kid friendly (we dined with our 2.5 year old) while also being a great special occasion place. Servers are always knowledgeable and helpful. The main downsides are that the restaurant is crowded so it is sometimes difficult to get to and from the buffet area and the restaurant is very loud.

WOW! Had been anticipating my visit here for a while and it was definitely worth the wait.
Salad bar had a large variety of items but really, it's all about the meat here. Every piece of meat was amazing and the best I ever tasted. The Parmesan crusted pork and garlic picana were my favorites. Get dessert to go-- it's well worth the extra $8. Best cake I ever had!
I would request a table away from the door next time...we were freezing with all the people coming in and out.
Can't wait to go back here again...
