We ate at Estancia Churrascaria on Thanksgiving night. The salad bar was good, but a little disappointing compared to other Brazilian steak houses I have eaten. Most of the meats were a little dry and under seasoned. Deserts were good, but the waiter made a mistake on our order, and he wasn't particularly nice about correcting his error. The atmosphere...

Visited during our stay for F1 whilst staying at the nearby Renaissance Hotel. It is a quick 3-4min walk from there. Amazing! Is one word. It cost around $60 per head. Included is an anazing salad bar. Dont fill up because its all about the meat! When you are ready for meat you have a card at your table flip... More

When you enter Estancia! Know that your expectations will be met and your budget may fly out the door. Friends or business, this place is excellent to meet with both!!

It seemed pricey for lunch, but when you pay the bulk of the price for a salad bar and then all-you-can-eat meats for $10 more, you are blown away by the selection. Every kind of meat was paraded before us. I tried almost everything, and I think my blood chemistry changed after that Paleo "Fix!" The wait staff was very... More

My husband took me here for my birthday. The food was very good, although the filet mignon in bacon and the lombo de porco (parmesan pork) was very very dry. I had to drink a plenty of water to get the first bite down on both. Needless to say, I didn't reorder those items. We were a little disappointed that... More

The service was over the top. I was told it was good but I had no idea that it could be this good. The manager even came out to make sure that everything was perfect. The salad bar was wonderful - I could have just had it and been satisfied. Everything was so fresh and displayed with a flair. The... More

I came in with a plan to just enjoy from the 30+ selection of salads and drinks. I came out with a tummy full of not just salads, but also the most tender, juicy, and yummy prime cuts of beef. Father, forgive me for I have sinned!

This restaurant is great! The food is very good and the service is without question but having to wait sometimes for the servers makes one wonder if it is done on purpose. It was my understanding ALL meats would be circulated and if you requested certain cuts they would be served But it seemed that because our party was Black... More
