Texas de Brazil - Pittsburgh Ratings and Reviews

The salad bar is huge. It had everything on it you could ever want. The waiter asked if anyone had a dietary concern. I have a gluten allergy and the manager walked me through the salad bar to point out foods with gluten. Very nice and above the ordinary. The staff was very attentive with our drink orders. The food was outstanding. The meats were very flavorful and surprisingly hot. They give you a card with a green side to allow more meats and a red side for give me a little break. They were right there with more food. One problem---we are TOO much. We will go back for sure and bring friends.

Although happy with overall experience, diss appointed with fact that we weren't allowed to take table scraps home to our dogs. This restaurant was not pet friendly. Also not everything was explained fully and noise level was very loud.

This is a Great place to eat. The food is very good. The server(Jennifer)/service was the BEST Ive had in a long time. I recommend this place to anyone. The atmosphere is very comfortable and just awesome. It has become my families favorite place.

Pretty awesome experience, and wonderful food if you like meat/grill. The salad bar alone was worth the drive. The experience is like no other I've ever seen and we had a wonderful time. A little pricy for dinner which will keep up from coming back as often, but it didn't seem like they were having any trouble filling up the place.

When I want meat, TdB wins hands down. Why buy one steak for $45 when you can have all-you-can-eat choosing from 12+ choice cuts of meat. If you don't like medium rare it may take a while longer to get it to your table.

Service was slow and the servers had a tendency to forget the section where we were seated when offering /serving meats. We needed to remind the waitress to have servers stop at our table continually. Went there for our anniversary and was greatly disappointed.

Our family of 6 loves Texas de Brasil, including my 10 and 4 year old daughters. Our favorite meats are the house special, bacon wrapped fillet, flank steak and lamb. It awesome to be able to sample so many selections it one sitting. In addition to the vast and flavorful meat selection, we love the beautifully decorated salad bar, cheese bread and plantains. We've been to the restaurant several times and the manager Davi and the staff could not be better. Davi recognizes us and makes us feel special and that personal touch seems to carry over to the staff. Keep up the great work and we'll keep coming back!

Since we are from Texas it is easy to assume all these chains are equal(Brazilian steakhouses with the gaucho wearing servers). Because this one is the only show in town for Pittsburgh Brazilian Steak houses it pleases the locals for sure(5 PITT students did not want to leave). I felt rushed (they kept taking my salad plate and asking if I was done when I was still eating. I only ate from the salad bar(which is awesome). My biggest complaint is after asking several times for 3 signature meats(lamb, garlic beef, and slow cooked beef rib roast) they appeared at the end of our dinner....2 hours later.

I really like Portuguese/Brazilian BBQ joints (I live in NYC, and usually go to authentic, first-generation family owned places - Newark, NJ, etc.), and I was excited to try this chain. I was traveling, and I figured if I liked it, I would go to other ones I've seen close to home. Not bad - food was slightly better than what I would expect from a big, higher-end franchise restaurant. Plus - meat was excellent and plentiful - that's what you go for. Minuses - service was hurried, and they ran out of bananas. We got a big spiel about how the fried bananas were a very important part of the meal, to cleanse the palate between meats. Then the waiter came back and said they were out of them. So no palate cleansing. Last minus - very expensive. Paid the same as I would have for porterhouse at Ruth's Chris. Definitely prefer Ruth's.

We had a wonderful time! Service was top notch! Although there abundant meats and extras at the tables, we have definitely been to ones with more selections at the cold bar and more varieties of meats. Overall, it is a great place to indulge!

My husband and I went down for our anniversary. It was fantastic food and drinks. It was our first time to experience Texas de Brazil. We found the explanations and staff excellent. The food was very tasty and their cheeses were excellent.

Just loved the decor, made you feel special with the elegant salad bar. With mirrors and beautiful flowers in the middle of the large salad bar. It had any & everything you could think of on the bar. The tables were all covered with white table cloths. The servers made you feel very important. They also asked if it was you first time, then went on to explain what all that they had to offer, if it was you're first time.
The server's would come around to serve you the different types of meat, which included beef, of all kind. Also had chicken, pork, leg of lamb; also lamb chops, & sauage links. We never had to wait to be served the meat, they never made you feel uneasy. It was Great.

I was very excited to try Texas de Brazil for my husband's birthday. I was disappointed in the service that was given to us. We barely had any of the servers stop at our table despite having said something to management. Although the food was good, the service is what will stop me from going here again. I was more upset that my husband was not enjoying his birthday due to the service that was not given.

This was the 2nd time that I've gone to Texas De Brazil and it didn't disappoint. The food is always great, the service outstanding and you definitely get your money's worth. My fiancee and I were celebrating our anniversary and it was an awesome experience.

Our service was great - Rachel was our waitress. The noise level was awful. We could barely hear what the servers were saying when they came around with the meat. Everything they told us had to be repeated because it was so noisy. It took a long time to get any beef/steak. There were many servers bringing over pork and chicken, but not many with the beef/steak. Rachel had to ask the servers to bring us what we wanted to try. It was very expensive, and I believe with the price of the meal, the servers should be around more often. We were getting tired of waiting for servers....and poor Rachel kept bringing us rolls, because, I think she felt bad for us. She was a sweetheart. Then we we asked about dessert, we found that it was not included in the price of the meal. That floored me because it was so expensive to eat there, and then not to include the dessert was a little crazy. The food was good, but it just took forever to get it. Oh and the lobster bisque soup had NO LOBSTER in it. It was just broth. Tasted like watered down tomato soup. My husband and I were very disappointed.

We had a very wonderful dinner when we visited our daughter at college. The food was great; the salad bar had a huge selection and wow, the meats were super tender and very tasty. The service was really superb. An added bonus for us was that the manager personally took my daughter around the salad bar so he could show her what she could eat and what she should not have due to her food allergies -- very much appreciated! We will definitely be back.

We enjoyed our meal, our server (Jamie) was wonderful....but a little disappointed in the meat selection at our table. We were in an awkward spot so several of the gauchos missed us entirely repeatedly, finally we had to ask for them to come to the table.
