It was love at first bite! Buffet that comes to you full of different perfectly prepared cuts of meat. My personal fave, lamb chops. Delicious salad bar but i have to admit i save my appetite for the meat. I love the side dishes which include delish fried bananas and mashed potatoes. Highly recommended. Preferred over Fogo de Chao. And... More

Really great food but come hungry. I say come for lunch and walk off all that food. Valet at the door. But if you arrive early free parking can be found around the corner during the weekends.

I was raised on a farm and we regularly ate many of the cuts of meat provided at Chama Gaucha but without the amazing wine list and excellent wait staff. I guess I am naturally drawn to what is offered at CG and going there is somewhat like going home but with a twist. The restaurant is large and accommodating... More

Food is fantastic- service is great. It is a different dining experience. Salad bar is phenomial - we have taken family from out of town and they loved it. It is a place where you can dine and feel comfortable staying 3 hours so you can enjoy the meal. It is pricey but worth what you pay

I dine here with my family at least once a month because I love the atmosphere and the service. Food quality is nine out of 10, their salad bar is very magnificent with very large selection to choose from. I will be dining here when I am in town at least once a month.

The huge salad bar is wonderful but don't gorge yourself, the best is yet to come. All kinds of tasty meats are available for you to taste and enjoy. Went with sons and daughter and we all enjoyed it. It is different but a real dining treat. Highly recommended.

We went for my birthday. The experience was great and the food was good. I love the salad bar with all the many choices. The service was great. You must go for the food and fun. You must try the 1604 location. The service was quick and the servers were on point with bringing the many choices of meat which... More
