We had my husband's birthday lunch here as our first experience with this type of cuisine. The restaurant is lovely and wait staff is outstanding! The food was very good and extremely plentiful. Did not care for the Parmesan crusted pork as it was just too salty. The sirloin was especially flavorful as was the lamb. The grilled pineapple was... More

Great Brazilian Restaurant! Very good Service and batter than average ambiance. The salad bar prior to the meat portion is outstanding! The quality of all the food was amazing. 16 different meats as the main course and all of high quality. This place a a true San Mateo gem. The bar and the cocktails were also outstanding! Worth every dollar!

We have visited Espetus on several occasions. The food and service are consistent. Love the meat selection and variety of items of the salad bar. Prices are on the high side, but you will never leave this place hungry.

Had a business dinner with everyone big meat eaters. They were not disappointed. I counted at least a dozen meats, chicken and even shrimp. Very well cooked, all were tender. Salad bar was superb and I did all I could not to fill up on that, it had such great choices. One person from Canada wished they served the pineapple... More

GPS coordinates: 37.562470° , -122.319082° The location is not near any attraction so no problem with parking. The sitting area is wide. Table reservation can be done online (from smartphone as well). The system is very simple, one option for main course: beat the meat i.e eat meat + great Salad bar as much as you can for 57$.

Meat is good, but I really like their side dishes. I agree with other reviewers that it is slightly overpriced. There are better options in the Bay Area if you consider the value.

My brother and his family took us here for Christmas dinner. This was our present for helping him and his family throughout the year. His family has dined here and they wanted us to experience it for ourselves. We hated to tell him, we were not impressed. It was the food that we were disappointed with (especially for the price)....

While it seems to be a busy place on weekends, it is deserted and becomes quite unpleasant once only a few tables are occupied. This happened to me on a Monday evening..This was equally reflected in the quality of food and service. I made a reservation through 'Opentable' and despite the restaurant having only 4 tables occupied, I got the... More

Customer Service: Five stars across the board. The staff was attentive always checking up on my family and I! The men coming around with the meats were always there whenever we gave them the go signal! Decor: Very nice, fancy, and the decorations/­paintings were beautiful and gave it a very nice Brazilian feel. Presentation of Food: If you have never... More
