Texas de Brazil - Albany
Great place for a carnivore, love the lamb and various steaks.
Very courteous staff; if you're a meat lover, the price is worth it! very delicious foods (including their buffet)... meat is tender, juicy and flavorful!
Definitely worth the price! Would recommend it to family and friends. Wait staff was very accommodating. Will be back again.
I have been hearing about this place forever and have had many people tell me it's fantastic. While I had a vague idea of how things worked, was a little shocked when I got there.
Made a reservation for 715, got there about 10 minutes early. Half of the place was empty and we had to wait to the 10 minutes until 715 when we were finally sat down.
Given the ammount of servers in the place, was a little surprised at how slow the service was.
Our server had a great attitude and went over everything, how the meat is cooked etc.
It's a bit odd to go someplace that has a very upscale atmosphere where someone places a napkin on your lap for you, yet you resort to the buffet style of getting up and getting your own plates. Additionaly is a bit annoying that they don't come collect the plates more often and you end up with a plate looking like you just slaughtered an entire farm
The meats all tasted great, but other than the chicken not a single piece was cooked to medium rare, everything was medium well to well done. 2 of the lamb chops were completely burn and solid. Many dry pieces.
Overall the food was a huge letdown and ultimately soured the whole experience and just drew attention to the feeling of spending 45 dollars for old country buffet.
I may try again sometime but I'll be holding off for the foreseeable future.
Everything was excellent. Great value for the money. Looking forward to going back
A unique dining experience. Great variety of meats. Salad bar was excellent. Well worth a visit.
We have celebrated so many dinners here and even just to go out to a great place. For some reason our food on this day was all burnt and tasted burnt if it was cooked medium rare which is what our table ordered. Our waiter Bobby was not very attentive and at one point hadn’t seen our waiter for well over 15mins. It was by far just a really bad experience this particular evening. Very disappointed.
Best steak house in the region for sure!
Excellent dining experience. The food and service were top notch. We went to celebrate my birthday our server Maria S. made sure it was a special event. Will definitely recommend to my friends and family.
The food was excellent except for the pork which I thought was a bit dry. Next time I will only have the salad bar so that I can fully enjoy it. I had to hold myself back so I’d have room for the meats!
Hands down the best dining experience I've ever had
The entire staff was great at ignoring every female at our table. If it wasn't for my bort8and I saying something to the servers the females would have had no service at all.......
This was our first visit here and it was AMAZING! I took my wife for her birthday. The food was amazing and the staff was outstanding service.
If you like animal protein and LOTS of it, this is the place for you! Great meat and service.
Great food. Clean salad bar. Food properly cooked.
Over priced for the quality. I have spent the last 5 Xmas eves at the restaurant. This will be my last time. The meat was either not cooked or overdone.
Overall it was a positive experience. Waiter could have been a more attentive, as we waited to long for service when it wasn’t crowded. Seems the coin, or whatever you call it, isn’t paid attention to that much. When it’s red, they would still come over, and green we got passed a few times. We will return however, as we have had great service there before.
I had a great experience while dinning. Service was great the food was great and can see no way to better spend a nice dinner with my wife. Can't wait to come back again---I ate myself into a meat come LOL
Chocolate mousse cake
Only complaint is, the servers speak waaaay to fast. All heard was drink, ala carte and one other word. Other than that..absolutely fantastic
Food is always great! Being a vegetarian with a bunch of carnivores, I found the salad bar to be amazing. Everything is fresh and tasty with plenty of variety. There is no way you could leave not feeling stuffed! My only complaint is there was no Riesling wine available. I feel this is a pretty common wine and should be plentiful. Management was apologetic and suggested other options. All in all this is a great restaurant and the food is 100%!
I usually have the best meal here. But on this visit I had to ask many times for food to be brought to our table. They seemed to go all around my guest and I. It seemed as though they were ill prepared for the large parties that were there as well as a full dining room. I’ve been to their lunches three times now and each time it was less that stellar.
Awesome staff very friendly and you did not have to wait for anything
Work holiday lunch
Tried it for the first time recently and enjoyed it very much. Only problem is if you’re not a big eater you may not fully get your moneys worth. That being said, the salad bar was fresh, sides were tasty and the meats are incredible and never ending. The service we had was wonderful along with the ambiance
Wonderful as always. Inesa was a fantastic waitress. We always enjoy our time when we go. We only get to Albany 1 or 2 times a year. Each time we make a special trip to Texas De Brazil. Never disappointed!
All the meat was amazing. There wasn’t a side that wasn’t delicious. Definitely recommend and will be back
Great place great food great meats great service no comaints
We loved it! Love the salad bar!!! We had room for dessert and that was great too!
I would not recommend Texas de Brazil - Albany to a friend for the special holiday lunch hours. My reservation was for 2pm and I felt like I was being rushed out of the restaurant so they could clean up and prepare for the dinner crowd. Barely any of the meats came to my table and, instead of just saying that lunch was ending, I was told that the reasons for this was that they were "busy." Anyone in the restaurant, or walking by for that matter, could see that they were not busy. Had they been up front from the beginning and told my party when lunch was ending, I would have completely understood. Instead they essentially chose to just not feed us. Due to this, I do not feel I got my money's worth.
This was not our most pleasant visit. As always, we were asked how we preferred the meat. more often than not, meat was not accepted by some of our guests due to the fact that it wasn't prepared the way it was ordered. Our server was fine but not successful in getting certain cuts brought to the table. A manager came by but it seemed that some of the offerings were just not available.
The waitress was fabulous and made our experience very positively memorable
We arrived early and they were able to accommodate us in a very short amount of time. Everything I ate was delicious. I can't wait until my next visit.
Amazing, attentive and friendly staff. Food always hot and delicious with fast service
Bring a huge appetite!!! Food was great. Salad bar is phenomenal all on it's own
Fantastic place for a meat loving carnivore. Tremendous food and salad bar, the restaurant is just great.
The meat was over cook, it looks like it was too dark and tough
Service was good, the waitress was good, but the guys bringing the meat they were outstanding, very nice that the manager came over to hour table to inquire about all, very very nice and extremely professional
The salad bar is nice, but I would have liked more hot vegetable options with the meal. The guys who brought the skewers around were prompt and made repeat visits to the table, but the waiter, who's only job was to bring drinks and bread, did not bus our table (I had to ask him TWICE) and did not ask to to refill our drinks without me flagging him down. He did not seem overly busy. I found the meat to be slightly overcooked.
Food was amazing as always, however it was the worst service we ever experienced there. The server was non existent, so the drinks were left empty, the dirty plates piled up and we had to wait forever for the check. When you are dropping nearly $300 on a meal, you expect better service. Granted, it was Thanksgiving, but our reservation was early and therestaurant wasn't even half full yet. I have been there on busier nights/ holidays and had way better service.
Great food and drinks! Will definitely go again.
