I will start by saying that you do not want to bring anyone to this restaurant that doesn't eat meat, enjoy the smell or looks of it. Now let's get to the "meat" of the review ... The salad bar is the best. Not because it is the largest, but because it has such a variety of items. It isn't... More

This is a great version of a Brazilian SteakHouse, actually the best I have had of this type of restaurant. The salad bar is extremely fresh and well stocked and the meat is absolutely delicious. Not to be missed and choose this one over the other churrascos. (sp)

Very nice selection & flavor of meats, the Brazilian Steak was perfectly salted & charred. Salad bar has a lot of great options, but be sure not to fill up on these. We went on a Saturday night, it was extremely busy, so I advise reservations.

We had a large group here for a business dinner. The staff was great and the food tasted wonderful. Unfortunately, the next morning, over half of our party from the night before were sick including myself. We all ate a little bit of everything, so were not sure what made us sick! Highly disappointed because of this, we will not... More

This place is excellent. The meat is well seasoned, the salad bar is fresh and the service is great!It gets crowed quickly so it is better to go early!

Had a large group for a business dinner. Staff and servers were very attentive and friendly... And willing to explain choices. The meat selections were outstanding and prepared the same! I've been to Brazil twice and Chama Gaucha seemed authentic to me... And the taste was great in any case. A little pricey, but worth it.

We wanted to take a group of friends out for a memorable dinner and chose Chama Gaucha because of it's excellent reputation. We could not have made a better choice! The food and service were exceptional and the Chama Gaucha experience was one we will all remember for years to come. Tripadvisor fans - you got it right rating this... More

As a long time resident of Brazil, I always jump at the opportunity to enjoy good Brazilian food. The key to enjoying it is authenticity of ingredients and technique. This place failed on every level except service. From the par boiled rice, to the incorrect type of banana, the lack of brazilian hot peppers ( they gave me jalapenos, really?)... More
