You must come here. Starve yourself before you come here so you can have more room to eat!! If only I could have taken a prime rib skewer home with me. You must save a bit of room for the flaming cheese cake. Mike the waiter is amazing. Great service all around! Love this place. Will be back... read more

Food was delicious, atmosphere was wonderful and wait was not bad. Service was good and not over bearing when we visited. Sometimes they are a bit extreme on service but as previously stated it was not overbearing, rather over than under with service. Highly recommend at least one trip but like us we are repeat offenders. GOTCHA.

Chama Gaucha is the place to go for outstanding service, food and atmosphere. We have frequented this restaurant for both personal and business meals and can honestly say that we have never had a bad meal. In fact, all have been exceptional.

Dropped in for lunch to celebrate a late Mother's Day due to travel and work. First time here, wife is pregnant, so she was chomping at the bit to try this place. With daughter in tow, we were seated promptly ahead of our 1130 reservation, waiter gave us a welcome and explained the system. Drink orders taken, we hit the... More

Everything about Chama Gaucha is excellent! The atmosphere, food and service is outstanding. Take a trip to the salad bar first. It features perfectly garnished bowls of salads, vegetables, cured meats and other goodies including cheeses and peppers. When you're ready for the meat parade to start, simply turn your card over to the green side and the gauchos will... More

Our fourth time here over the years, usually for my birthday. They do everything but hold your fork and knife for you, as soon as the thought crosses your mind, by a host of staff. The meat is fantastic, fresh off the grill brought to your table. The filet and garlic steak were the best, but the sirloin slices were... More

We took some out of towners here when I was on a work trip in March. The restaurant is pretty dark inside, but really quite elegant, and comfortable. Even the bar area and waiting seats were quite comfy. The front area was well appointed and quite modern; the dining area was a more traditional steakhouse look with dark colors and... More
