Steakhouse
Texas de Brazil is no ordinary steakhouse. It’s a dining experience like no other. Here, traditions of Brazilian cooking blend with Texas hospitality to create a lively atmosphere in an upscale setting. Your meal begins with a visit to our extravagant salad area where you can indulge in a wide array of seasonal roasted vegetables, fresh artisan breads, charcuterie, imported cheeses and other specialties. Then enjoy the rodizio-style dining that has made us famous. An endless parade of gaucho servers visits your table with skewers of freshly grilled beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage carved directly onto your plate. It’s all served with authentic side dishes of garlic mashed potatoes, Brazilian cheese bread and sweet fried bananas. To complement your meal, select from our award-winning collection of wines or traditional Brazilian bar creations. And don’t forget to treat yourself to one of our decadent à la carte desserts.

We had to request for meat to come our table vs it comes to us automatically. Some of the meat was too salty and over cooked.

Server was very good but a little slow. The place is too dark, the DC location had a lot of light coming in from everywhere. All things considered it was a good dinner, we’ll be back. Thanks

Food is not the same as it used to be. Not sure if it’s due to the pandemic but we used to enjoy going there. It was the best steakhouse in the DC area. Not anymore!

We have visited this location before during the pandemic and had a good dining experience, but our most recent visit was not that great. First, tables are not six feet apart, 3 feet at most. I didn't feel completely comfortable sitting that close to another diner. Second, the waiter we had was not that friendly, he seemed bothered to assist us and came across as rushed and somewhat rude. Third, the servers that prepared the sides were stingy. They gave you the bare minimum they could and the waiter seemed annoyed when we asked for refills. You are paying a premium to eat here, please provide adequate amounts of sides. For example, the bowl of soup was half-filled. I asked for cabbage salad, they gave me literally 10 julienned pieces of cabbage and carrots?? The meat was not the quality that we had during the last visit, it was tough and there was no variety (maybe 8 different cuts, compared to what they usually have. They also kept skipping our table and we had to wait sometimes 15 to 20 minutes between meats. We waited for lamb-chops and when asked, were told you had to ask for them. How were we supposed to know? I definitely will not be returning to this location. I prefer the Washington D.C. location, but they are still not open due to the pandemic. I probably will not be returning until they reopen.

One of the best Texas de Brazil restaurants. The courtesy of the staff is amazing, and they make sure you receive all the meats you fancy. It is very efficient as well. Zero waiting time having reserved the table, and high-frequency servings.

Food was excellent. Service needed improvement, started great but we were almost done when the sides showed up.
Seating could have been better instead of in a corner. Did not appreciated the hostess assuming we were gay instead or work associates who are in town for business. Nothing wrong with LGBT but assumptions should never be made.

First time dining at this location. I usually have a great experience at Texas de Brazil and this time was mostly good. Due to the pandemic I can understand a bit of disorganization but I was a little disappointed with the service. It was a hassle to order from the salad bar, the salads and drinks took too long long to arrive. But my biggest issue was being noticeably ignored by the gauchos. I had to hail them several times to make sure we got a decent selection. Overall good but I’m not sure if I’d come back to this location

It used to be very good. Now it is is even more expensive, extremely expensive and not that good anymore. The salad bar is no longer a salad bar. You receive a ticket which you need to fill out to get anything from the salad bar. This is very annoying. The salad bar is also much smaller, less to choose from, yet the price is higher. Meats are also smaller varieties. I would not go there anymore and I dont recommend it to anyone.

Greeted by the host and was promptly seated. Jose was on the ball and always asking if we needed anything but was not overbearing. One bad thing was they did not have any of my American beers that I drink

You guys have done an outstanding job making the switch for the requirements from the governor of Virginia. My dining experience although different from what I was used to in the past, was exceptional! There’s no loss of quality service even though we had to make changes during these unprecedented times. I will gladly be back and I welcome the new changes.

I hate to say it but this place has gone downhill. They served us the flank FOUR times, and three times before they brought anything else!! It was bizarre. Additionally, I felt they were trying to get rid of it because it tasted completely different - VERY chewy. No one at our table finished it. The lamb is now by request only. The picanha was delicious as usual but overall I was surprised by how things have changed.

The meats were few and far between each server. They basically brought out the chicken or pork several times and the beef steak once, the lamb you had to ask several times, they brought it out once only. Basically, it was just a lot of waiting for the meat.

Staff weren’t enforcing social distancing. The large party begins is we’re standing around the table. A child was twirling all around our table, no mask. Her mom took her right by our table. Neither were masked. The child was watching a children’s show on her tablet, full-volume. For my $200+ bill for just three people, I think we should be able to expect safety and good ambiance, at baseline. I was really disappointed.
