Steak
Known for outstanding service, the authentic “churrascaria” offers more than 12 flavorful cuts of meat including lamb, pork, chicken and beef on skewers carved table side by gauchos. In addition to several cuts of meat, the continuous service includes a trip to the fresh and bountiful salad bar followed by a basket of traditional, mouthwatering pao de queijo (cheese bread). Fried plantains, buttery garlic mashed potatoes and fried polenta are served family style. An excellent, extensive wine list and authentic Brazilian cocktails complement the unlimited fare.

At our restaurant we are proud to bring you all the tradition behind the unique and original Brazilian way of serving meat. Food doesn’t stop arriving until you’ve had enough. Whether it’s a cocktail reception, class reunion, corporate picnic, magnificent wedding reception, or any occasion we can create a great event fueled by our passion for perfection.

It was amazing, but they try to sell you on a lot of things. The hardest part is saying no.

Super attentive wait staff...not just our waiter but everyone that worked there! The Filet mignon was like butter, melted in your mouth, sadly I was not impressed with their house special Picanha. The flaming cheesecake though is a must have, it’s not in the menu (if you don’t mind paying $18 for dessert, then go for it)

Waited 30 minutes after scheduled time. Perhaps, a complementary drink for the inconvenience could've been well received. :)

Like to eat here rather than Fogo De Cho due to service. You do not have to wait minutes to get your server check on you.

Too many kids running around. Also, for such a nice establishment, I think they should implement a dress code. Nothing super formal, but maybe no graphic tees/sweats, slippers, bared mid riffs? Keep it classy please. But the food and service remain top notch.

Other than the food being amazing, the service was excellent! The experience from the valet drivers to the waiters & servers being very attentive was PHENOMENAL!! I would definitely go back time and time again! Hands down the best Brazilian steakhouse! The bottom sirloin was to dieeee for & their limeade was delicious! Definitely would recommend to all my friends & family!

From the minute you walk in the door till the minute you walk out, you are treated as a special guest. The food is indescribably delicious. The salad bar is beyond compare. The staff could not have been any more professional or helpful. We wanted for nothing. Perfect place to dine for a special occasion.

I received a call 45mins before Reservation and was told Restaurant was closing early due to a grill issue. I strongly believe they shut it down at 7:30 due to lack of business.’ Which I understand but very disappointed and embarrassing that I had to find somewhere to go last min.’ My girlfriend is very understanding.’ But I was still very upset. I’ve been here several times and until now held this place in high regard..!’ Being a Chef for 25+ years and Executive over 10..’
This not a good look..’ I’m also a very understanding person and realize things happen..’ But in my heart I know this was a lie and hope this is not a sign of things to come from this place..!😔

This time we got a server who did NOT know what was gluten free. As a result he told us a lot of items were off limits. The actual servers knew the correct information, but in the face of inconsistencies my wife was unwilling to take the chance. I did not really enjoy this time at this restaurant as a result.

Celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We were seated right away between a couple big parties. It’s seems as though the larger parties often got served more often, leaving us at times with an empty plate! While we were eating, I got an email stating “we missed you at Chama Gaucha” We had to stop at the hostess station on our way out to remind them to check us in. Maybe that was why they were unaware of our special occasion. Definitely not the usual service!
