Freshly made meats all delicious I don't care for the lamb but that's my husband's favorite & salad bar was good.Felt very welcome. & don't forget to try their desserts my favorite flan & the strawberry cheesecake swirl.

Superb! My family and I have been to Rafain a couple of times, but it been a while since our last visit. A coworker and I had lunch here last week and it was even better than I remembered it. Service was better than AMAZING!! The employees were extremely attentive and the meat never stopped coming and it came quick. Almost every server asked if we wanted a special meat and it would be at our table within the minute (highly recommend you load up on the House Special, the top sirloin grilled to perfection). Management will always working the floor too and interacted with the guests and seemed to know the regulars by name and asking about thier day and families. Would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to everyone even if you need a quick bite to eat. By far the BEST Brazilian steak house that you will find!

This is the best brazilian steakhouse that we've ever eaten at. Not just another meat orgy, the service is very attentive, the salad bar was fresh, plentiful and unique. I enjoyed the fact that dessert was included on the salad bar, since I like a little bit of sweet at the end of a meal. (Although, the grilled pineapple was so good, that was enough for me!) Little touches are the things that show that a restaurant really has it's customers' comfort in mind. In this case, I noticed that the lighting was perfectly done so that the tables were lit well, but the rest of the room was pleasantly dim. The ambiance was lovely, but the hostess and servers were so friendly that it wasn't an intimidating kind of atmosphere. We went on a Sunday afternoon and wore our "church clothes", but would have been comfortable there in jeans - although maybe not in shorts and t-shirts. We quickly found our favorites from the huge variety of meats offered, and invariably, if we refused a particular meat (I wasn't a fan of the spicy steak, for example), the server asked if there was something in particular we wanted, and sent that one back to us quickly. The pihcana is my favorite because it is so flavorful and tender, although we also enjoyed the "prime" and the filet. In addition, the server always asked whether we wanted rare, mid-rare, etc., so we got exactly the food we wanted. They have a reduced price for kids and for people who only want the salad bar (the salad bar was so plentiful that I would have been happy with the salad bar meal - although who can resist the yummy meat!) This is definitely my favorite of the brazilian steakhouses. We'll be back!

not worthy any penny out of my pocket! reservation means nothing for the front desk. service was just worst in town. food is below average. salad bar is barely make it a salad. meat is dry and too much seasonings.... mean poor quality. annoying service and keep pushing to finish dinner quickly. don't even look at this place for your option. go for fogo de chao, texas de brazil. you will find way better service and food for your money.

This place get a +5 from me best Brazilin stakehouse i have been to so far, the staff is polite, attentive, and have a positive adatude that make the dinning experience fantastic. As for the food it is top notch the flavors meld well with eachother and the seasoning does not over power the meat. The salad bar is stocked with great ingredients and does not disapoint. When we come up this way again we will be back.

Reserved a table for the wife and mom on Valentines day. Meat was fine, but salad bar was not up to par. Service from our waiter was dismal. We were not offered any side dishes and had to ask 3-4 times for condiments. Was not offered a refill on my drink from the bar which may have saved me some $$ in the long run. The tip was already included for a party of three? I guess that is why the service was horrible! They get one chance to redeem themselves. Only because I purchased a groupon they would not honor on the weekends.

I want to say that Rafain is not only the best restaurant in town, but is the best restaurant in this COUNTRY. Many restaurants they say Brazilian Restaurant, but when you go IN, they dont have the quality or traditional Brazilian FOOD. I am from Brazil I know the REAL THING. You asked for farinha . They bring you farofa,Really?? If you go to a Brazilian place and the waiters dont know what farinha de mandioca is, I will have problem. You can not eat CHURRASCO without farinha- "If you are GAUCHO!!!" Farinha de mandioca is perfect to eat with PICANHA. Rafain keeps all ORIGINAL, they have the real thing. I am proud to recommend this restaurant to any one because I know that they will have the full experience with quality REAL BRAZILIAN FOOD, QUALITY OF SERVER and an EXCELLENT management!!! The price is AMAZING for an AMAZING RESTAURANT!!! They keep it personal with their clients, My son came home and they WELCOME HIM " He is a ARMY SOLDIER", our Birthdays and special OCCASION I celebrate their because They will make it special and I know I will have quality!! " RAFAIN CONGRATULATIONS, please keep the great JOB, keep your staff as quality and respectful" - I am very pick and I know for sure that you are the best in the COUNTRY!!! I have been in several Brazilian restaurants with the TOP names in Dallas and in different states) ( I will not name the restaurants as respect - the quality is not the same as when they open, SERVICE is not the same as in the past and they have no clue what is FARINHA de Mandioca)? The waiter was from Brazil, speaks Portuguese and never hear about farinha de mandioca. If you want eat churrasco, you need to read about tradition and EDUCATE your staff....RAFAIN manager is all about to make sure that we have what we want. I recommended RAFAIN to several people from different culture. I know they will had the full BRAZILIAN experience.WITH QUALITY FROM A to Z!! My anniversary coming up this coming Thursday. Guess what??? I will celebrate at the BEST PLACE!!! RAFAIN!!! Thank you for make a quality food and make us GAUCHO to eat a REAL CHURRASCO and a REAL BRAZILIAN FOOD!! "Mas Bah TCHE!!"( This is the way we say in the SOUTH when something is VERY GOOD!!) The bottom line is , if you are from BRAZIL I you feel home at RAFAIN, with some amazing quality. If you are not from Brazil and want to have the REAL experience.They will not fool YOU!!! IMPORTANT NOTE: If you see name(BRAZIL) at the door and If you find people speaking Portuguese at the restaurant, remember that they need a JOB TOO!!! It does not mean that the restaurant is from BRAZIL or they know how to make the ORIGINAL CHURRASCO. If you never eat the ORIGINAL FOOD in BRAZIL you can not COMPARE I can compare because I know the REAL THING. I hate went they put the Name at the door and FOOL clients. Churrasco is traditional from SOUTH the Brazil(GAUCHO) is not everyone in BRAZIL that know to make CHURRASCO. If you go to BRAZILIAN restaurant you want to feel that you have a REAL BRAZILIAN FOOD!! If you go to Italian restaurant you expect Italian FOOD. I hope you are like me, I get out my HOME I want the BEST!!! I dont want to go to a BRAZILIAN restaurant to eat FOOD made in "CHINA FOOD!!!" (SORRY QUALITY is everything) - If you want to EAT the traditional REAL BRAZILIAN FOOD, ONLY CAN FIND IT AT RAFAIN!!!! If you say anything different of my opinion I will respect you, but remember you have NO CLUE what you are talking about!!! That's all!!! MUST people like a FERRARI Car or drive a FERRARI and know what is a FERRARI. ( QUALITY, REAL, BEST) FERRARI is made ITALY....( I dont want FERRARI made in China) RAFAIN is the FERRARI for all BRAZILIAN RESTAURANT in this COUNTRY!!! THE BEST BRAZILIAN FOOD and the REAL CHURRASCO!!

I know this is only one review but I hope others will read this... The manager Karlo is a dismissive jerk. We were having a wonderful time the food was great! Until half way through the meal a waiter spilled red wine all over me. Mistakes happen, I know but how the manager handled it was completely unacceptable. He came over and just kept telling me that it was just a material thing and that I should not be so upset about a dress that was completely ruined, not to mention the wine in my hair. Needless to say we were a little upset and asked for the bill just so we could leave and clean up. But once the bill came that was the final straw. He not only charged us for one extra person but he also left an 18% gratuity on the bill. When I confronted him about it he laughed at me and dismissed me like a child. I did not back down and demanded a refund. Needless to say we will not be back.
