Food was Good, it was our 1st time here and our Waitress was excellent she explained how everything worked and was very helpful, we enjoyed our time here, but it is very costly for a tableside buffet, it was 80 dollars for 2 people and we just had water with our meals, I will probably not be back just based...

Really great meal. Fantastic dinner experience. So yummy. You just wouldn't make this vast array of meats for yourself; well, I wouldn't. Meats were all tender and juicy, shrimp was delicious, and the salad and vegetable bar is AMAZING!!!! Lovely ambience and wonderful service. We try to come here now every time we pass through.

My all-time favorite restaurant never disappoints. Went to a Brazilian grill in D.C. recently that is supposedly top of the line. It was good but I didn't think it compared to Carnaval Brazilian Grill. Next time I'm going to do something different and just get the salad bar. The salad bar is the best I've ever had. Tonight's soup was... More

Great food. The service is either wonderful or bad. It's on the pricey side around $25+ a plate. But for having it be mostly meats that would be expected.

The selection and variety of meats is outstanding. The price is a touch high but they are always busy so get reservations! The salad bar area left some to be desired but the meat is the main event!

Twenty of us showed up for dinner with reservations. The tables were set and ready. Staff were all very friendly. The never-ending great meat dishes were all great. The secret is go light on the salad and sides. Target the meat. Don't forget to take a breather now and then. Travel safe...

My cousin treated me to dinner here for my birthday. First time for both of us and we really enjoyed it. Excellent customer service from the moment we entered. (Appreciated the free coat check when we have bulky winter coats.) Salad bar included some unique Latin American choices that you don't see at other restaurants. And the parade of meats... More

My son wanted to take me to this great restaurant since I have never been to this type of restaurant. It was an experience I thoroughly enjoyed. We visited on a Friday night and it was crowded but not overly noisy. We had a wait but it didn't seem too bad. We were seated at a small round table and... More

First of all the Salad Bar is huge and full of many varieties of food. Then the "meatfest" comes. We love trying all the varieties of meat, all very delicious and the Gauchos very proud of their specialties. We did not get the shrimp option as there is so much else to eat. I think I have my fill until... More
