This place was recommended to me by a colleague who knows his meats and quite simply, this is the best Brazilian steak house I have ever been to. Unpretentious & simple but tasteful ambience and polite and highly knowledgable waiters & carvers. You get prime cuts carved straight onto your plater - filet mignon, tip, sirloin, ribs, chicken, chicken hearts... More

we were a group of 15, we constantly had to tell servers if they could bring us meats because for some reason they would turn around at the table before us. a few servers realized this and helped for a few rounds, but then again it stopped. we had to wait 10-15 minutes for meats to come out. the meats...

If you are hungry and love meat...this is where you want to be. The service is excellent, the meats are all excellent and the staff is very friendly. What I really loved most was I have some bad food allergies. The Maitre'D found this out and took the time to genially express concern and review every dish, side and salad... More

Came here for lunch because the queue at Dojo Ramen was incredibly long. It turned out to be a good decision. We had no reservations and yet were shown to our table within minutes. This place does get crowded so perhaps we were lucky. Then the different kinds of skewered meats start coming out. My favorite was the filet mignon... More

Located on a side part of the town,this place is quite impressive given its surroundings.Not good street parking,food is up to par and service as well.Good spot for a special occasion or if you want to impress your carnivour girlfriend. Quite pricey for the location though. I visited last many years back ,when I was not aware of how toxic... More

My son and I have visited Espetus Churrascaria in San Mateo twice in the past month. We've been to these Brazilian Steakhouses before, like Fogo de Chao in San Jose and Texas de Brazil in NY and they are all EXCELLENT, but each have their own uniqueness to them. Here's what I think of Espetus Churrascaria (in no particular order):... More

We just enjoyed a birthday dinner with the whole family. The food was perfect and the servers were all amazing. It's pricey even at half price for children who barely eat but overall a great dinner and family friendly.

I have been here several times over the past 8 years and the quality has been consistent. They have good meats as well as a large salad buffet. Be sure to take a good appetite with you as it is pricey, but you will not be disappointed with the food. Besides different kinds of beef cuts, lamb and prawns, they... More
