Always love the food at Santa Fe, it’s our favorite spot. This time around, though, we wanted to celebrate our anniversary, which we noted in our reservation, and instead, we were seated next to large, rowdy party of 11. It was the oddest thing. Would I go back? Of course. The food is unmatched, and usually, we have the best service. I’m tossing this up as a fluke.
We love Brazilian food and have tried other establishments. Texas De Brazil has the best salad bar hands down. Everything was crisp and fresh. I was disappointed with many of the meat cuts due to lack of seasoning or flavor. The sirloin cuts were very chewy no matter the level of grilling... and none of the garlic meats had enough flavor or salt to give the "garlic" flavor we love so much from Brazilian steak houses. We do plan to revisit as it may have been an off day for the chef and we understand that happens. The deserts that we chose were the warm pecan pie with ice cream and the Brazilian cheesecake. These were delectable and not sweet as many others. They were perfect. The service from the staff was outstanding as expected and we were very pleased. We will definitely return for a dinner reservation next visit since we attended the lunch our first go.
My teenage son wanted steak for his birthday dinner but didn’t want to go to a chain steakhouse or a formal one. This fit the bill well. The food was delicious amd prepared perfectly and the ambiance was wonderful for a casual steak dinner. Between us, we had the filet, T-bone, amd NY strip and all were great.
