Not my first Churrascaria. Brazil, New York, Zürich and Southern California. Now this one. All the great ones have one thing in common, not part of a chain. Food: Excellent. Meats were not over salted and not a misstep in the bunch. Salad Bar: Missed...a few truly Brazilian items (Feijoada for example) but otherwise quite excellent. Complementary sides were good. Service: Polite, friendly and never felt rushed. From a truly regional perspective, it felt a slightly more Uruguayan or Argentine influenced, which is ok. My partner was as pleased as it was his first experience with this style of restaurant. Bottom line, go and enjoy.More

Good meal ;) they were very accommodating and even memorized that I like medium rare and fiance well. They made it a point to being meats for our preferences. The Valentine's day special including desert was a good deal. This place is great for a...Brazilian steak house with resonable prices and delicious food.More

What a great restaurant. We went on a Sunday night and it was extremely crowded. They have a nice bar area and my wife and I had a drink. The wait was minimal. Once we were seated- the service was overwhelming. Dirty plates were switched...out, water constantly being replenished. The salad bar was wonderful, but the meats were the highlight. Everything from the lamb, to the chicken to the filet was top notch. Once we switched out card to green, there was always at least three meats being offered to us in 30 seconds. The staff was friendly and on top of our needs. The food was out of this world. We will be going again soon!More

I’ve literally just left from having a family lunch and felt compelled to review this lovely establishment. First off this is located in a strange corner where you can only get it on the northeast corner. As you enter the facilities, it’s welcoming and elegant....We were seated quickly and given a run down of how things work. My family enjoyed everything. The staff were extremely quick and courteous. My mom was in the process of turning her card over to red before someone came to offer her another cut of meat:) I’m a vegetarian and although I would’ve liked to have additional options instead of chicken salad which is more meat. I did enjoy my meal regardless. Everything was fresh and of great quality. We mentioned it was my dad’s birthday and they brought out a dessert for us to enjoy. Our drinks were never empty and table sides were replenished continuously. The staff have serious eagle eyes! Shout out to Carlos and staff who made this a wonderful first time visit for us. We shall definitely be back and bring others! Tips: Come hungry! Drinks/desserts are extra Staff deserves a healthy tip:) Don’t forget to wear some stretch pants! (Dress was very casual during lunch, maybe more dressy for dinner)More

Great customer service and very friendly staff. The Salad bar has a lot more variety than other Argentinian steakhouses of similar nature. We were a party of 15 and had reservations for 7:00pm. But due to flight delays and flight cancelation, we had to push...the reservation back from 7:00pm to 8:30 pm; we were accomodated with no problem. Two extra guests arrived around 9:45pm.The restaurant manager was very accomodating and the food kept coming until the two late guests indicated they were full. The meat is very well seasoned and flavorful. However,several of our guests encoutered numerous pieces of meat that were not of the same good quality of the other meats. So the only issue is inconsitency in the meat quality. Other than that, the entire family had a very enjoyable experience.More

Went for dinner for a birthday and we're not disappointed. From the time we entered until the time we left the service was top notch. We reviewed drink list and decided on bottle of wine. It was promptly brought over and we were given a...sample. After approving they filled our glasses and continued to fill as needed. They described the salad bar, how the green & red on the indicators worked and the cuts of meats. We enjoyed a small sampling from the salad bar as we didn't want to fill up because you are really there for the meats. Once we finished our salad they changed out our plates and it was off to the roundabout of the Gauchos brining us meat. All were very helpful in description of the cuts of meat and always asking how well you prefer your cut. We ended the evening with a dessert. Found everything great during our experience.More

Fantastic food and superb service! Our drinks were constantly topped off and our plates were continually replenished. This restaurant makes it obvious that customer satisfaction is the most important thing. You won’t leave here hungry!

Yes, they serve great cuts of meat, however, the place is all about large volumes of people. Loud ambiance, close seating on top of other tables and tired looking interior. It attracts professional eaters and strange mix of clients. Sorry, repurpose the income and give...it a makeover. Keep the cooks and meat selections - very good beef.More

We've been going here for 10 years since they opened at least once a month. Compared to all other Brazilian steakhouses this has the best quality of meat, service and upscale atmosphere of all that I've eaten at. Service as good now as it was...in the beginning. If you want to be treated like a VIP, eat like a VIP just try Chana Gaucha...you'll be back for sure!More

$60 per person plus drinks. Go with an appetite and try not to fill up on the awesome salad/soup bar! It's the best!
