The food is much better than other Brazilian steak houses, however we were out at a table in the back on the restaurant and forgotten. It was very hard to catch an available server. When we got our check they had over changed us for a drink , we got 3 however were charged for 4.... but it was so hard to catch our server we gave up and left.

Excellent service. We have been to several churrascaria before. This is perhaps the best. Cuts of meats were good, well seasoned and cooked to perfection. Be sure to ask for the broiled pineapple. If you like it spicy, they provide sautéed onions and jalapeños. Excellent experience.

It’s was our first time there and overall everything was good. It started out a little rocky at first because we stated that it was our first time but then nothing was explained. Then another waitier came and saved the day. He was amazing!!! Extremely professional and made sure we had everything we needed. He was actually the only one that served us that night even though we were told that there would be 3 servers. He was great and made the experience awesome.

The lamb chops were unbelievable. Cooked just right with the perfect spices with a hint of mint. The filet was rare just the way I like it. My cigar group usual go about one Friday per month.

I have been visiting Chama Gaucha few times for the past 2 years. They changed their schedule and canceled the weekday lunch special, which I was a little bit disappointed. They also canceled the prime ribs on the menu, which I'm not certain if it only happened for lunch time, but the prime ribs was their best dish and I was so looking forward to have some the other day. Overall I still like the place, just some changes that I'm not typically fond of.

I tried the "other" competitor about a month ago and in my opinion Chama Gaucha is the winner in Brazilian Steak experience. The food was fabulous, the shrimp cocktail in the market table another plus. And the service was the winning element in my eyes. Chama Gaucha beat out the "other guys" with stellar service. So the next time our family has the urge for the Brazilian Steak experience, this will be where we go. Thanks for a great dinner and evening. See you again soon.

Todo iba perfecto hasta que una de las personas que iba conmigo encontró un cabello, el mesero argumentó que podría ser del mesero, y después de ahí la atención hacia mi amigo cambió demasiado, ya no le trajeron un plato para que siguiera comiendo y al final de la velada encontramos otro Llegó el gerente y se disculpó argumentando lo mismo que ellos no tienen el control de eso.

Always enjoy going to Chama Gaucha. The food is always excellent, and a staff that is perfection. I always go out of my way to only get a very light salad so that I can enjoy my top choices of meat, which are lamb chops, and the top sirloin. I strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves to eat and eat and eat.

The service was great! The only reason why I would recommend going is that it is an experience. The salad bar was good. I didn't like the "fast" pace of eating, however I realize they were trying to get the meat to you while it was still hot. What I didn't care for was the paper thin slices of meat they gave you. I realized that what I like about eating a steak is the actual chewing of a thicker piece of meat releasing the juices in my mouth. This just didn't happen here. The only "chunk" of meat was the garlic infused sirloin which I loved. The shrimp lacked flavor. The other bacon wrapped meats, steak and chicken weren't all that special. I didn't detect any wood flavor at all on any of the meats. The restaurant itself, very blah in it's decor. Nothing special here except the prices of the meal. I realized how great their concept is as I am sure there are very few people that get $53 worth of food in one sitting. I'll stick with my local steakhouse where a delicious, wood fired flavored rib-eye or prime rib plate is under $25. Again, the service was great!

I would only recommend to a meat lover. I am not a meat lover I am a side lover and I was not impressed to see a plantain as a side and my meal for two with two drinks totaling 140$. The mashed potatoes were the best side but not the best mashed potatoes I’ve had. Honestly the salad bar is people with very distinct intricate pallets. If you not a meat love with an intricate pallet then this is not the place for you. HOWEVER!!! I was a vegetarian until the age of 17 and the meat here is beyond imagine. So much flavor and taste in every bite. I don’t enjoy meat per day but the meat here is absolutely savory and delectable. Would recommend this restaurant for any meat lover!

Once again another amazing dinner at Chama Gaucha. It has been a couple of months since we had been and decided to take a couple of friends there for the first time. As usual we all left with smiles on our faces. Everything was perfect and our friends could not stop talking about how good everything was. They complimented me on my choice for dinner and said they can't wait to come back. Thanks Chama Gaucha for knocking it out of the park every time we are there.

Great quality, tasty meats and a too good to miss salad cart. We were recommended to go way on the salad cart to ensure enough space for the meat but it was such an awesome variety of salads including king prawns, smoked salmon and support tasty honey roasted brussels. YUM! Was very glad I hadn't eaten all day 🤤

Very good value for money and attentive, friendly service. would absolutely go again.

Usually this is a 5 star restaurant but tonight everything was off. Food was not great tonight like it usually is. Meat was for the most part over cooked, dry and not flavorful, the fried bananas were terrible, these are usually one of our favorite foods almost desert like but again tonight they were just plain bad. Salad bar was up to par but was missing stuff like the bread.

What really brought the rating down was the service tonight. I made reservations over a month in advance and advised them that is was my son’s 14th birthday. During the night I saw one other person have a birthday and received some sort of desert and got the usual embarrassing happy birthday song sung to them. This is my son’s favorite restaurant and I was disappointed that with advanced warning he got no such treatment. No singing no birthday cupcake or whatever Chama Goucha usually does. I bought him a desert so he wouldn’t feel bad. Very disappointed with the service. There were 5 of us and the bill was well over $300. This is the first time we have had a bad experience at Chama Goucha I am sure will will eventually go back but I think next time we’ll try Fogo to do a comparison.
