Have been to Chama Gaucha 3 times in the past year. Each time, delicious food and great service! Have gone with parties of 2 to 15 and have enjoyed consistency. Salad bar is awesome and I'm not a big salad eater!

It has been my privilege to eat in some of the best restaurants in the US and Europe and I can say that the service here is A#1. A good restaurant attends to its customers' needs, a great restaurant anticipates those needs and takes care of them even before the customer has noticed it. That is how Chama Gaucha operates....

The food was great, just as I expected after reading reviews of the restaurant. I believe this was the most attentive service I have ever received at a restaurant. Four staff members greeted us on the way to our table. Any time one of us looked around a staff person would immediately come to our table to ask if we... More

We come to Chama Gaucha about twice a year, you will find high quality cuts of meat and a fresh salad bar! Come hungry because you do pay for all-you-can eat ticket but you get fantastic service with a Portuguese accent!

Met friends for lunch. I was pleasantly surprised. Great food,nice atmosphere and fast service. A nice change of pace from the traditional restaurants. I could see myself going back just for the salad buffet eventhough it's a meat lover's paradise! Bring your friends and your appetite. You won't be disappionted!

This was our first time visiting. We went during lunch so it wasn't to busy. Food was good, not great. But kids enjoyed seeing everything brought to table. I would recommend larger family to have lunch then dinner. It's less stressful! Always sign up for emails to get free lunches!!

This place is so great......everything was so delicious..We had a great time and definitely left full. The staff basically caters to your every need. Love that it has a floating bartender. The fresh cheese, salads and service was fantastic......The meats were tender and I love the little cards to flip......better go on a starving stomach.......Worth every penny......Cant wait to visit...

Let me begin with this: I am a die hard foodie, was a chef for four years, and have lived on 4 continents and been to all of them except Antarctica. With that in mind: this is my favorite restaurant in the world. The food is sublime. It's not pushing the culinary envelope experimentally; it's fresh, simple food done exceedingly... More

This was my first visit to this type of dining and I was not disappointed. At Brazilian steakhouses, an army of waiters walk around presenting different cuts of beef to each person dining at the table. Each person at the table is suppose to flip a card to indicate readiness for more meat but I gave up and just kept... More

I had never been here before, but I'll be sure to return. The staff were so attentive and nice. During desert, the server dropped my Tres Leches slice and it took a while before they brought me another one. When they did, I was told that there would be no charge for dessert. This business really takes care to make... More
