Let me preface this by saying that I live in Houston, where there is also a Chama Gaucha which is how I'm basing my review. Came here with my family for a special occasion, brother's engagement announcement dinner. There were 6 of us total. The service was excellent, no issue there. The food is where we started second guessing where... More

Went to dine last night with a party of nine. The wait time to be seated was around 45 minutes but well worth the wait. The salad bar has a nice assortment of salads that look and taste like they were made seconds ago. They have a good selection of wines in their wine list. But let's get down to... More

We went here for my oldest sons birthday celebration and what a meal it was. We are a family of meat eaters and this place is perfect for us. They have an awesome salad bar for the veggie lovers and the sides that come with dinner are great but the meat is the main attraction. You have what looks like... More

My wife and I had a weeknight date and were impressed with the attention provided by the servers. Given it was a midweek, I was surprised at the number of people and groups, probably filling it to 90% full. Salad spread is wide though it would have been even better if they included fruits. We had a choice of 4... More

The restaurant is pretty good. The service is what you pay for. Although, the food is good, be careful on how much you eat. Everything is either red meat, lamp or pork. Do not eat the chicken or the other stuff they bring to your table. Even though you can eat all you want, no one can eat a $45.00... More

Having lived in Brazil, I am picky about Brazilian charrascarias and steak restaurants. Chama Gaucha was excellent in all respects: service, atmosphere and fidelity with the types of food served in Brazil. This includes the availability of meat items with the salad bar and the succulent preparation of meat dishes. You can't go wrong with any of the steak dishes... More

The salad bar is as good as the beef. The chicken was unbelievable, too! I have never experienced a salad bar as fresh and tasty as this one. It is costly, $48 per adult, but worth the money. The service was exceptional. Overall, this dinner was one of the best, most complete, meals I have eaten.

I had to get used to the system of turning your red/green card over to get a portion of 'some' meat, but It quickly got used to it. Because, whatever I got, it was an excellent piece of meat. I especially liked the steak which was soft and juicy. However, also the salads were as you want them, fresh and... More

The level of customer service this place has is outstanding!. The quality of the food is also unbeatable!. I have been to many Brazilian steakhouse places where they delay delivering the meat, not in this place, you will not turn your eyes away from your table without a server meeting your needs. Go with an empty stomach because you will... More
