Excellent, delicious, mouth-watering, great service

I went with my date, since parking was at minimum we decided to valet. Upon Entry we were greeted & seated close to salad bar. The salad bar was very very good, but we had to save room for the unbelievable tasting meats, chicken & shrimp we were treated to by table waiters who brought each entree... read more

Today we visited CG for the first time. The restaurant is well appointed. We were greeted at our table by a young man who explained the dining experience. The meats are superbly grilled are very tender, and so delicious. The salad bar has very good choices The staff is truly attentive. We never felt rushed. We had a great meal.

Food is excellent, but what really makes this restaurant a complete 5 star recommendation is the service. All the servers were great, but I thank specially to Benjamin, he is very helpful.

The restaurant is nice and well appointed. The salad bar was very well stocked with lots of options. They served these amazing bread balls at the table. The meat was very good, but also very much like other Brazilian steakhouses I have been to including Fogo de Chao and Rodizio. The service is where this place really stands out. They... More

Just visited this Steakhouse for a date night and was not disappointed. We got there a little early and had drinks at the bar were we served their excellent cheese bread balls. The atmosphere was quiet enough that we were able to talk quietly between us (something you can not do at fogo de chao) and took our time. The... More

We took my mom for her birthday and she just loved it. The service was great and the food was cooked to perfection. We liked to call the staff ninjas lol because we would turn away for a second and like magic we would have a clean plate fresh bread and filled glasses. Totally worth the price, I have been... More

I attended a group dinner at Chama Gaucha and had one of the best meals of my life. The Brazilian style steak house had a wonderful salad bar with three different soups available. I had a cream-based chicken soup with a tremendous flavor, in addition to traditional salad offerings. The main meal, as in all Brazilian style steak houses, consisted... More

Although Westheimer road is terrible, and the parking distant (if you prefer to park for yourself) I love coming here for special occassions. They have plenty of valet parking if you want the red carpet service and accept reservations. They have a lovely bar area to wait while your table is set up or if you are expecting a large... More
