Taurinus Brazilian Steakhouse
A bit more crowed for what I'd expect to be safe under Covid19. Food is good, but not yet Fogo de Chao level.
It was a nice dinner , the food was delicious and the staff were all great! The only thing I wished for was that since it was my day that they would’ve brought out even the littlest cookie with a candle for me to blow out lol. I mean it would have been a nice end to the dinner , specially since it’s not cheap. Oh well over all we had a great time.
Celebrating new job and wedding anniversary
Always great meats and a really nice salad bar.
Too crowded, tables squeezed too close to each other, forcing a long wait for a glass of water.
The waiter never came back to our table and never fulfilled our drink order. We tried to get his attention but he just turned his back on us and walked away.
I have been to Taurinus many times and the experience has always been outstanding. On 2/14/2020 , I took my wife for a romantic Valentines Dinner, and feel that this particular evening did not meet the usual quality.We had a reservation so being seated was no problem. The restaurant was extremely crowded, which is understandable because of Valentines Day but the tables were pushed right up against one another which didn’t allow for intimate conversations, nor did allow for the servers to navigate the dining room without reaching in front of people. Additionally, there was little on no room to move your chair in or out without bumping into the adjacent tables. After being seated, it took nearly 15 minutes for someone to come take a drink order, and nearly another 15 minutes for it to arrive. The food quality was okay at best. Most of the meats had more fat than meat and it all seemed salty and greasy. This is not the usual quality. I would normally give Taurinus very high marks but this particular evening had a lot to be desired.
I went for lunch with my mother and a friend. At the end of my meal I was charged as dinner. I asked them why? They explained because of the holiday. Valentines Day is a Day of Observation, not a holiday. A City, State, or Federal Holiday I believe they are holidays. No stores closure, no offices closure , no City, State or Federal Departments closure. It was no information on their website. I was not informed about it when I got there.
I am a customer there and I always told people that Taurinos is a good place for lunch or dinner.
I was ripped off. This is the way that I feel.
Valentines Day is a day of Observance or called a Feast of St. Valentine where some people celebrate the day of love.
I am very disappointed with Taurinos.
I truly believe that a place can not overcharge a meal because they believe it’s a holiday. Usually, some places offer a package for Valentines Day and it was not the case at Taurinos.
Shame on them. Even, they didn’t serve all meats as they serve at dinner.
Had a very nice & relaxing lunch...just the way I like it!
Nice restaurant.Standard Brazilian steakhouse fare. Went on a Tuesday so very few people, but there was a more limited selection than usual ( seemed like sirloin, sirloin and sirloin , and chicken legs). Meat was ok but not as tasty or juicy as you’d expect. Salad bar was great. Staff super friendly.
I am surprised by all the great reviews — maybe they never have been to a Brazilian restaurant before, but this was horrible. Very little flavor, meat was not the best cuts. They came several times and the meat was raw. I like medium rare but it basically was just seared. The salad bar was also bad. Go to Fogo De Chau or not at all.
Great food and service like always.
The hostess and wait staff were very nice and helpful. They kept the meats coming continuously. The food was fresh and very tasty. Definitely will return
Buffet food was just ok. Not a huge variety. The meats were delicious and service was great.
The food really is great. There were times when I received pieces of meat that were still rare on the inside which I didn’t end up eating but the food that I ate that was actually cooked well, was great!
What a wonderful surprise to learn that they would be open in Christmas Day! It took so much stress off to not have to be cooking all day then clean it all up. We ate a delicious meal and were able to walk away and enjoy the rest of our evening together.
We love the salad bar in all of the different types of meat said she could have and the desserts were fantastic but a little overpriced
We had annual group Christmas lunch . Wonderful experience !
Went here with a co-worker and enjoyed ourselves. Food was really good and service was good too.
This place was awesome! My wife and I stumbled into it before a Sharks game. Food was amazing! Bring your appetite! Lots to chose from. Cool to sample one of each type of meats and not have to eat a huge steak or just chicken like at an a la carte restaurant.
Food was not as good as it used to be. They took a while to get meats out. We had to ask the manager to help with certain meats. She was awesome. Overall, it was a good experience. But service and quality is not as good as it used to be.
Excellent service, and very fast. But FYI, it wasn't busy at the time.
Food was good and I’m guessing you could eat all you want. I ate as much as I wanted. Service was decent. No parking except for street and paid parking garage which is was expensive. Salad bar lacking.
The food was delicious and beautifully presented, the staff was the perfect amount of attentive clear in our waitress told us there would be 16 different meats, but we were not presented with all of them. It was a quiet night, that might have made the difference. We were pleased to not be in the middle of hustle and bustle. Hope that means that this place remains a hidden gem.
Great food, great service. The salad bar had a great selection. The meat all started to taste the same by the end because of all the salt, but delicious nonetheless. Only suggestion would be some Brazillian performers like the Vancouver, BC Brazilian steak house had!
Pros: Good food. Variety of meat.
Cons: Pricey. Noisy even without many people. Dimmed to dark interior.
I’ve been here a few times. As always, the meats were perfectly cooked. It’s hard to go wrong at a place like this. All the options from the cold bar were tasty. One of the people in our group is a vegetarian and only ate items from the cold bar, and she was happy. Everyone in our group left with a full belly.
Fabulous food, great service, wonderful staff. Made it a great birthday event!
We are happy to have been of such quality service! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. It was our pleasure to make this birthday event great. We hope to have you back for more in the future.
Great food, great service and nice wine selection.
We are happy you had a great time with us, Gunter! Thank you for sharing your feedback. We hope to have you return in the future.
The food was good. The servers were great. Make sure you are hungry enough for this place, especially for dinner. If not, one plate will cost you around $50.
Martha, thank you for your kind sentiments. We are glad you enjoyed your experience with us and hope you will decide to join us again soon for more.
We have eaten at Fogo several times in the past and wanted to try this place for some time. In comparison, the price is similar but the quality of food at Fogo surpasses Taurinus considerably. While the service was great, we found that most of the meats were either under or over cooked. The salad bar pales in comparison to Fogo. And the ambience and setting at Fogo is much nicer. You also have to deal with everything that comes with being downtown here. If you have the choice, I recommend Fogo over Taurinus.
Stanford, thank you for visiting. We of course regret your meal fell short in any way, but appreciate you sharing your feedback. We hope for the chance to serve you again.
We took a group of high school students. Two of which are vegetarians. Everyone loved the food and there were plenty of choices at the salad bar for the vegetarians. Our head waiter was fantastic. He took the time to explain the concept of the Brazilian Stake House to the group as this was a new experience to most. Everyone had a great time and at least 2 in the group commented on how much fun this was. Parking was easy to find on the street and since we were there on a Sunday, we didn't have to pay the meter. We will definitely go back.
Maria, thanks for reviewing your recent visit! We're glad everyone had such a great time, and we hope to have you back again soon!
This has historically been one of our very favorite local restaurants, but this most recent visit let us down. Several of the meats were old (as in the meat had that funky "wet-aged" flavor right before it goes genuinely bad), none of the meats were seasoned properly (or really much at all - all required salt), and the overall quality of cooking seemed significantly worse than in our (many) previous visits to the restaurant. The salads were still mostly good save for the mango salad, also usually a favorite, which was done with very unripe mango this time. We were very disappointed at how far this visit was from our quality expectations. Off night?
Thank you for your patronage and support. We certainly apologize this visit fell short of expectations, but appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention so they may be addressed. We look forward to having you back again soon for a much better experience.
First time to Taurinus and it was interesting, in a good way. We got there when it opened so we got everything really fresh. They has a great salad bar collection which is great for breaking up the tons of cuts of meats they bring around. I really enjoyed the mango salad and greek style salad that helped get your taste buds back to life after eating meat after meat. The favorites from our visit were the meat layered with cheese, the bacon wrapped chicken, and the beef rib. I warn all to only get 1 piece of the first few small intro meats. I agree to skip the sausage if you can. They came out with a few meats that we sadly didn't try since we were stuffed. A big favorite was the grilled pineapple that was brought to cleanse your pallet and help digestion. We ended with a surprise birthday ice cream with and their cheesecake with Acai sauce (delicious). Then they sang happy birthday in Brazilian! Great experience and will gladly come here again!
Stephanie, thank you for reviewing your first visit! We're delighted you enjoyed your meal, and we look forward to sharing many more with you.
Went to a nice dinner before heading to a show. Amazing food, you can eat till you’re full and everything was delicious and cooked to perfection.
Thank you for your 5-star rating! We're glad you enjoyed yourselves!
Food was exceptional and this was a fun experience. Toward the end of our meal, we started to smell the strong scent of cleaning chemicals and it wasn’t late enough for them to be cleaning up and closing down for the night. Maybe they had a spill or emergency that they had to address. This was the only reason I gave a 3 for Ambiance. Everything else was really fantastic.
This was our first Brazilian style meal. The food was delicious and customer service was amazing. We felt valued as a customer and welcomed. Definitely planning to visit again.
Pat, thanks for reviewing your first visit! We're delighted to know you enjoyed your meal, and we look forward to sharing many more with you.
Enjoyed everything very much! Salad Bar was Great! Meats were Superb!
We're glad to hear that! Please dine with us again.
