“The Best of the Best!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This is the BEST restaurant that my husband and I have ever eaten in. We save it for special occasions - it is definitely worth the splurge. They have a fabulous salad bar and the most delicious grilled meats that I have had anywhere.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

If you are a meat eater, this place is for you. Waiters surround your table with slabs of beef, chicken,pork, and lamb. Each patron has a square disc on the table by them. The square has a green side, and a red side. When you have the green side up, the waitstaff keeps circling the table offering you choices of meats. They slice a piece off and you grab it with tongs and place it on your plate. When you can no longer eat anymore, you turn the square disc over to red, and they pass you by. They quality of the food served was very high. The fillet melted in your mouth. Also the chocolate cake was wonderful. I highly recommend Chama Gaucha.

“Excellent service, awesome food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

2nd time to this Brazilian steak house and it was even better than the first time. The salad bar is the best anywhere. The salad is fresh, crisp, and well stock. Service is EXCELLENT! The meats are tender, full of flavor, served at table side, great wines, and the dessert was perfect! Highly recommend this place
