Pineapple IS always one of my favorites. Very disappointed that deserts (flan) no longer on the salad bar. This is one thing that set it apart from some others. Out of two of the wines we ordered. Food was excellent, but service was very rough. Our server also had another table (about 16). Several different checks, and lots of complaining to waiter about discounts, inaccuracies, etc. We had two free coffees per out coupon. Only ordered one, but were charged $3.50 (I think). Wanted to have it taken off, but after a 1/2 hour of waiting for the other table to be completed, we decided to leave. About four days prior to our dinner on Sunday, we tried to make a reservation on Open Table. But nothing was available. (I eat at your place 4 to 6 times yearly (normally Sunday) and usually plenty of tables available. So, I called you restaurant a few minutes before 5PM. I talked to a young lady (I forget name), and asked if anything available for 630PM for four. She said yes and took my name. When we arrived Sunday, no reservation had been made, but we were seated promptly. I miss Oliver, but do enjoy the staff. I will continue to come back.

Wide variety on the salad bar although some items had started to dry out. The meat was wonderful and came quickly. The pineapple guy kept skipping our table which was a bit frustrating but such is life.

It's weird when the Gaucho is nicer and more helpful then the servers. It was slow so the service wasn't great and the food was kind of okay. Waited over 15min for the check. We just paid and walked out since the guy didn't seem interested in dealing with "groupon people".

NO desert bar. Short in service, foods, breads, fried banana... Will definitely NOT come back again.

From Our Editors

Rafain has come a long way—literally. The Brazilian steakhouse currently occupies space in Dallas and Fort Worth, but it actually originated in southern Brazil in 1959. So when Olimpio and Philomena Rafain decided to open a churrascaria in America, they were simply continuing the family business. As a result, diners are guaranteed an authentic experience.

  • It’s a meat-lover’s paradise: “You need to like meat to thoroughly enjoy the experience here,” as DFW.com put it. In line with its authentic spirit, Rafain's menu features 17 cuts of meat cooked over an open charcoal pit, including the original spicy picanha, pork ribs, and bacon-wrapped filets. Gaucho servers present each meat on a long skewer, cutting portions onto diners’ plates.
  • You can sink your teeth into more than meat, though: The salad bar is stocked with upwards of 45 different gourmet selections, including a light calamari salad, Brazilian-style potato salad, and a vegetable mélange with bell peppers, asparagus, green beans, grilled onions, and baby portobello mushrooms. Those with room for dessert can enjoy specialties like affogato, crème brûlée, or papaya cream, which blends fresh papaya with vanilla bean ice cream before topping it with crème de cassis.
  • The libations are just as authentic as the cuisine: To drink, guests have a choice of mixed drinks, such as the traditional Brazilian "Caipirinha," a mojito-esque mixed drink fusing the sugarcane-based liquor cachaca with lime, sugar, and ice. Alternatively, they can order a glass of wine from an impressive 15-page list, which has been recognized with a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence since 2009. Rafain also earned its spot as one of OpenTable’s Top 100 Restaurants in America in 2014.
