As a meat lover, this has to be one of the best restaurants I have sampled. Everything from the various cuts of beef to the prawns were excellent. Most Churrascarias serve mediocre salads, but eh food at this salad bar was top quality as well. Service was the most efficient I've had at a Brazilian restaurant and the bar staff... More

This is something you should experience at least once in your life. I suggest you keep it very light at the salad bar and reserve your appetite for the best meats: the filet mignon, the lamb and the parmesean pork. Skip the ribs and the other steaks...that's just my opinion. Good service, great ambiance (there was live music when we... More

A family member chose this place to celebrate her birthday. It was a good one, as the majority of our party have never experienced this overload of Brazilian meat. To top it off, they are huge meat lovers so they came away satisfied. We conservatively noshed off of their buffet table, saving ourselves for the parade of meat.

Brazilian meat buffet but in my opinion, a notch below the competitor (Fogo). A little disappointed at the buffet table offering salads, paella, etc. The paella was bland, hardly any flavor. Likewise, their fish dish (salmon) was dry. The meat courses were excellent. Plenty of filet, chicken, prawns (my favorite), pineapple (nice touch), and chicken heart (yes, its surprisingly tasty).... More

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

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.
