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.
One of the best restaurants in Dallas – I took my dad for his 50th birthday and the only thing I can say is that the best choice for celebration.
The service was OUTSTANDING!!!!. I know good and bad services and this is the far best service I have experience in a restaurant. i really wish other restaurants would learn from Rafain what is services is really all about.
Its not located in a bad place and not far from nowhere. right next to the Dallas Tollway is a great place, its perfect.
I loved the experience at Rafain and I would recommend every single time. You won't regret it.
Best steak in Dallas – This is my favorite place for steak. They offer good food, good service and good price. Highly recommend.
Better than Fogo and Tx de Brazil – I chose Rafain's for an important milestone birthday.
We started with the salad bar which is no ordinary salad bar. Their SB is by far better than any place that does nothing but SB's. Hearts of palm, chicken salad, quinoa salad, artichokes, salmon, salami, prosciutto, various types of cheese, etc, etc. As hard as it is to not fill up on the salad bar - DON'T!! You won't have any room for the melt in your mouth meats or the dessert bar.
On to the meats. We had our choice of 16 different cuts of meat. All outstanding. If they use seasoning it's not overwhelming. I don't think they need it with the flavoring of the charcoal bbq. The service was outstanding. Because we were kind of segregated (by our request, we wanted privacy) I was afraid we'd be forgotten but my worries for for nothing. If your disc is green it won't take long for one of the gauchos to notice. They will be over in no time to offer another cut of meat.
The dessert bar was awesome as well. Turtle cheesecake, regular cheesecake, carrot cake, chocolate cake and others I can't even describe. I ate so much I was uncomfortable. It's hard not to.
Neida, the hostess, really understood the importance of this occasion and went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect.
I would definitely recommend them and have.
AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!! – This is our favorite Churrascaria in town. I believe it is also the original churrascaria coming from Brazil. Give it a try (unless you are- of course- a vegetarian..) you will NOT be disappointed!!
Rafain - Brazillian Steakhouse At It's Finest – My son took me here for my 55th Birthday dinner.
This, without a doubt is the best Birthday meal I have ever enjoyed. I have traveled the world over and enjoyed cuisine on every continent, except Antarctica. Who would've thought I would find some of the best food an hour from my home?
Starting with the valet service, everyone of the staff were courteous and professional. The right amount of attention was given to us during the meal. The meal - Oh My! The salad bar had so many wonderful choices, but don't get full there. The meat, brought around continuously is perfectly prepared and served as generous as you desire. The House Special is worth blowing a diet for. Roasted Leg-of-Lamb, tenderloin, smoked sirloin, pork, sausage; all mouth watering. Don't pass up the roasted pineapple sprinkled with cinnamon.
If you still find room; the dessert bar will fill in the empty spots - easily.
My experience tonight will be a treasured memory. Without a doubt, I'll build a few more memories here. ;-)
Truly Authentic Brazilian Steakhouse! – My husband and I decided to give Rafain a try. We went there to celebrate Christmas... As a Brazilian, I must say THERE is nowhere else in DFW you can get such great steaks (My favorite was the "costela", or ribs, and the desserts, of course!!!) and awesome treatment (the manager went to our table more than once to make sure we were getting all we liked. I soooo recommend PUDIM (looks like a flan, but it is WAY better) for dessert.
Great Customer Service, Great Food. – This is a nice upscale place to enjoy a great meal. The service is excellent, the food is the same. Its upscale but still that jean casual feel. We brought our kids and it was a family friendly environment. I would suggested if you have children to go around 5:00PM becuase it starts getting busy around 7:00PM.
WOW – My husband and as well as a friend went to Rafains today. It was the best food i have ever had EVER!
There was a wonderful variety of meats and the salad bar was amazing and beautiful!
The food was well worth the price we payed and we will be returning there again very soon indeed!
If you love meat and you want to try something a litle out of the ordinary...this is your place. EXCELLENT!!!
The Best Steak House in Dallas – I really loved the concept( you can see the gauchos slicing the meats in front of you, definitely I love that place!! ). Rafain is my favorite restaurant ever. I`d never seen a service as I`m used to see in some restaurant that I`ve been(Better than Fogo de Chao and Texas the Brazil!!!). The "Picanha" and the "Leg of Lamb" are my favorite meats. Keep going Rafain!!
