Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I treated my son for his birthday. We loved it. He had the churrasco experience and I did the hot and cold salad bar with probably 100 different dishes. The staff was top notch.

This is, perhaps the 3rd time we’re here. All is great, as usual. There is a long table for about ten of military people, all male, young and dressed up in camouflage. I made a mental note, to ask the restaurant, to pay for part...of their meal, to thank them for their service, then forgot all about it with our friends. The next thing I know, there is another table with four middle aged men in civilian, perhaps paid for the meal because the camouflage go to their table to shake hands before leaving. Oh well, hope I’ll have another chance. It’s funny to note, some dinners do ask if they can take some food with them. I thought it’s a common sense at a buffet that either you eat or leave, without a doggie bag. Oh well.More

This is copy (not a very good one) of Texas de Brazil. It’s expensive and the salad bar isn’t as extensive. My girlfriend liked the food. I thought for the price, it was very limited. It gets crowded early, so get there early.

My husband and I made the reservation for lunchtime on St. Valentine’s Day by the phone. Despite the woman assuring us multiple times that the price would be $37.95 per person, we were shocked to discover upon checkout that it amounted to $128.90 for the...two of us. When we inquired, the waitress explained it was due to a holiday rate. However, when we sought assistance from the manager, we were met with a dismissive response, leaving us feeling helpless. Despite my husband's attempts to resolve this issue, they refused to accommodate us. We were “regulars” at this establishment. This treatment has soured our experience, and as a result, we have decided not to return nor to recommend this place to anyone again. Very disappointing.More

WOW. We tried scheduling a dinner reservation for Valentine’s Day and could not. I tried for Monday and Tuesday as well but no luck. We couldn’t reserve for Thursday-or later in the week because I’m away and out of town for the rest of the...week. We ended up celebrating Valentine’s on Sunday. 2/11. I spent $400 on just this Sunday and have been there several times spending thousands and recommending Terra Gaucha. How cheap they are when I asked the manager, Aida, to honor the Valentines promo certificate towards another reservation. Even after I explained if I could have made it later this week I would have and wouldn’t have made the reservation for 2/11. Very cheap of them!! Aida, the manager, wanted me to make another reservation this week during the days she knows I’m unable to because I’ll be away!! She wants me to spend another $400 in order to get the certificate?! Good try. RIDICULOUS!! I’ll BE TELLING EVERYONE THAT I REFERRED HOW CHEAP YOU PEOPLE ARE AND DESPERATE! This is all because I was unable to get a dinner reservation from Monday-Wednesday ! For a person who’s been there quite a few times and dished out thousands. This is how you treat your FORMERLY loyal customer.More

2 pm on Thanksgiving - hard to get a reservation at the last minute. Excellent choice at the salad bar ( I know, don't eat from the salad bar so you can get your monies worth on the meats). Green and red coaster on your...table- (green for yes and red for no) if you want more. Constant parade of fresh, hot choices coming by your table. Tell your server if you want something special like more rare, etc. Full bar available. Pleasant wit staff.More

Def will return. Excellent service, with great food in a happy environment. My last similar meal was at Texas de Brazil Irvine, CA, which I gave a 3 - no comparison, imho. The salad bar is very decent and can be stand alone or with...the meal. The veggies are fresh. Papaya is tender and juicy. I didn't try the cold cuts but they look pretty. They provided 3 small plates to the table: parmesan cheese puff, polenta fritter and caramelized banana. The last two are yummy. Didn't try the puff. The endless meats come/leave fast (would prefer slower pace, not feeling rushed) ... most of photos are blurry - of course my skill isn't top notch either. One server did ask if I got the photo, I said yes even I didn't - don't want to break their rhythms or flows. Beef of various cuts, pork, lamb, chicken, sausage, shrimp, etc. I like the lamb chop and beef ribs the most. The bathroom is no frill and clean ... but the hook is so high - at the top of the door, even with my high heels I can't reach. What are they thinking?!More

Went for lunch on a Friday (the best prices for all you can eat is lunch Monday through Friday). Great concept. The servers circle the tables with beef, chicken, lamb or pork on skewers and you select what you like. Surprisingly, I liked the flank...steak better than the filet, chargrilled and seasoned with only sea salt. They have a wide selection on the salad bar too. The service was fantastic. I'll be back.More

A great, fun experience. If you love meat/steak this is a must. It’s a classic all you can eat Brazilian steakhouse, with everything you’d ever want. My only complaint is the lack of space in between seats/tables… it got very crowded and uncomfy at times...when trying to get up to the buffet, bathroom and even when waiters passed by.More

Great service, great food. We went on a whim while visiting my daughters college. We were probably not dressed as we should be after a long hot day touring campus and we were still welcomed kindly. My daughter had the salad bar and and I...had the unlimited and it was excellent. My daughter had so many delicious options. My Manager was very attentive and best of all I did not have to wait a long time for the lamb. Lately all the places I go to make me wait long and its pretty much all I eat. Clean restaurant and delicious food definitely worth a try!More

We had a coupon and went to lunch so it was very reasonable. We didn't have drinks other than water. Sign up for emails on their site and they will send you coupons periodically.
