Staff was super nice, meats were phenomenal! All were cooked perfectly and brought out the flavors well. Only slight downgrade for noise and it is pricey. It's all you can eat but filling. Try to leave room for dessert or take one home, they were also fantastic.

The experience was definitely an enjoyable one. The service was great and the food was terrific. The salad bar was surprisingly fully featured with lots of great options. If you are a fan of grilled meats, I cannot imagine a better dining experience. The one criticism that might have is that if you looking for a more traditional dining experience, you might be put off by the constant interaction with servers and lack of traditional foods, so make sure you know how food is delivered and what is on the menu. Lastly, I would definitely recommend the cheesecake.

When you come here it is all about 'the meats' even though they have a very nice soup and salad bar and wonderful desserts. The only disappointment there was the lobster bisque which could have been mistaken for a creamy tomato soup had there not been a sign identifying it. Most of the meats were very good, though some beef cuts were indistinguishable from one another. Unfortunately, we were unable to get through all the different kinds (you can only eat so much) so a return trip may be necessary! All in all an enjoyable meal.
Texas de Brazil is high on class, and reasonable on the wallet. At $40/plate it's not the cheapest meal in town, but it's the best $40 you'll ever spend on a plate. Dozens of friendly waiters bring around fresh-cooked meat and cut it for you, right off the spit. Various steaks, beef ribs, lamb, chicken, and more, all seasoned to perfection. To cleanse the pallet, the chef serves up fried bananas and thick, creamy, garlic mashed potatoes that are practically a meal unto themselves. Add to this a variety of top shelf wines and an energetic bar to pass the time while you wait for your table, and Texas de Brazil offers an exquisite and unique dining experience. Highly recommended for couples or small groups/business meals. Hungry teens might also find themselves at home here, but larger families may want to steer clear as the cost can add up quickly.

I was very happy with Texas de Brazil . A week before I could not get reservations until late . Instead of looking to go elsewhere, I waited a week to go here. It was worth the wait.

Excellent service, great for group dining, must be a meat lover. Long dinners great for talking and catching up with friends. Would go again
We went for mothers day and we had a time! Excellent and food.

Great service, great food, consistent in Columbus and Pittsburgh! We had a party of seven who were satisfied with their choice of salad bar and/or meat smorgasboard. The service was great from the young lady who escorted my 87-year-old Mom to her seat, to the accomodation made for Mom's upset stomach (it wasn't the food). We spent a couple of leisurely hours there, an enjoyable time for all.
The website stated this was an exceptional dining experience. The restaurant was very crowded and noisy. Food was overpriced and all the meat tasted the same.
New server didnt have a firm grasp of how the restaurant operated. My card was flipped over to green and waited 12 plus minutes on beef swords. I stated I didn't want a dessert, she brought one out anyway then ask me to please take it I agreed then I was charged for it. I can honestly say I was still hungry when I left because we were tired of waiting for the food servers to come to our table😠!!!!!
Amazing meal - highly recommend.
Amazing meal - highly recommend.
The food was out of this world!!! Would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves great food a true foodie someone who appreciates fine dining at its best without the giant price tag
The service is excellent and the food is delicious. It's a little pricey but you definitely get what you pay for. We were celebrating a birthday and stayed for almost 3 hours. We never felt rushed, in fact it was just the opposite! Our server, Alec, was very helpful and friendly. The Brazilian sangria was amazing!
A Perfect Thursday Celebration
Our family often choose Texas de Brazil for special get togethers, and it never fails to please. The salad bar is extensive and loaded with wonderful treats and tidbits of deliciousness, and the meats are all amazing. Service is impeccable and we are never disappointed. By the time we walk to our car, we've already decided the next great reason to eat there again!
Excellent food and service.
Excellent food and service.
Awesome dining experience!
We went for my husbands birthday and took our kids - 10 and 12. We all TOTALLY enjoyed Texas de Brazil and will go back again for another special event. The salad bar shouldn't be called a salad bar because it is an amazing layout of food - not just lettuce! There was nothing we had that we didn't like. The waiters with the meat were prompt, courteous and came back around at the end of the meal to make sure we were satisfied. They even asked us if they could bring over the person who had our favorite item for one more round. The bananas were amazing! I would go back in a second. I think it would be a fun place to take clients as well.
Delish, yet disapointed
We were celebrating my 40th birthday and enjoyed a delicious dinner! I was disappointed though that they didn't offer me a dessert or drink on them.

Talk about a food fest! The salad bar alone is awesome. So many delicious items to pick from, great variety. The way the meats are served is an experience in it self. All done just the way you would like them. Great food, good time! Would and will definitely be going back.
This restaurant never disappoints
My family and i have been to the restaurant several times, and we have never had a bad experience. The food is outstanding, and the service is always the best. Even when we have a guest with us that prefers their food cooked to a particular temperature, they are happy to accomodate. This has become our favorite restaurant.
Good service, good food selections

Lobster bisque and salad bar excellent. Meat less so this day
Our first visit and it was awesome
Our waiter Alec was above and beyond greatness, all of our favorites were on the salad bar, and Every meat was done to perfection,I imagine heaven to have a Texas de Brazil!
Brought my husband (who's a meat & potatoes kind of guy) to this restaurant as it was recommended by a friend months ago. It was perfect. It is expensive but worth every penny! The service was great. The manager visited our table to ensure that our expectations were met. I would say they went above & beyond to meet our expectations as my husband & I were having a non-traditional celebration in which I was presenting a gift to him. The staff at this location made this a truly special moment for us. We will be back, with friends!
For Meat Lovers - Lots of Meat Lovers
Very nice place. I would not call it romantic. Rather open floor plan with a large and very good salad bar - lots of choices there for many tastes. Vegetarians could go here but probably only if you are with an avid meat eater. A different dining experience as you do not order, they bring the meat to your table and carve you off what you want. Beef, Lamb, Pork, Chicken. It all comes to you and you decide what and how much you want. The service was very good. Our waiter checked in just often enough and would make sure a meat server would appear if you were looking for a certain type of meat for the first time or second. Very rich cuts so bring an appetite and strong constitution if you want to get the most out of it. Also did not know that fried bananas will cleanse your palate. Really worked between types of meat so you can taste it all fully. Highly recommend doing that in between. Great evening, one price for all.
Noise and Space Issues
I did enjoy my meal at the restaurant but i did not care for the noise level whatsoever. I am 26 years old and had to ask our waiter to repeat himself multiple times. Also, 3 times during my meal, another waiter passing by smacked into my chair due to the tight seating. One of those times, my drink spilt all over my outfit.
was and food more expected. Will dine there again.
Ask About Drink & Dessert Prices
I Enjoyed Everthing about the restaurant but the bill. Just 2 things I visited this place in Aruba years ago and everything was included and it was about $50 per person. Didnt know I was being charged $5 for a Mango Lemonade and the waiter came and adked if I would like a refill I said yes and got charged $10 . And desserts were about $9 each. I came expecting to spend $100 and spent $135 plus tip....Wouldve like to have known about additional charge in advance....Otherwise Great Place to Eat.
GREAT PLACE, EVEN GREATER FOOD!
If you like to eat great food and never want to leave a place wanting for more, this is your place to eat! One suggestion though, be prepared to loosen your belt at least two notches by the end of the meal!
Waiter was exc.carvers were the greatest!
We go here for special occasions, it was our 29th wedding anniversary. Everyone wished us a Happy Anniversary. It's a little pricey but for a special occasion it is wonderful.
Everything was good! Will go there again ...
Everything was good! Will go there again!:)
Great food, great service and a relaxing pace.
The restaurant was clean and open. The salad bar was amazing! The selection were wide and very delicious!! It was not too noisy which made it easy to talk. Management was present and checked in on us twice to ensure we were happy with food and service. The waiter was very hospitable and enjoyable. There is one price, to make it worth while bring your appetite and pace yourself. I would highly recommend the restaurant.
So much food!
We have been to the restaurant on several occasions and it never disappoints. Everything is cooked to perfection. Come with a huge appetite and a group of friends for a fun time!
Although the food was not quite near our expectations for the price. The service was outstanding.
Texas de Brazil is truly a dining experience. The salad bar is tremendous. The service was excellent with no question or request unanswered. The manager greeting was unexpected but very thoughtful. The meats were super and never-ending. We had an excellent time.
