The selections and freshness of the extensive salad bar were exemplary. However, I was disappointed in the meat selections. Each sampling was very salty with the sirloin perhaps the best of the choices. Excellent service, gloomy ambiance, easy to find. In my opinion, overrated.

Friends of ours recommended going there to meet for supper. Service was great, atmosphere was inviting, and had an overall experience was fantastic. Make sure you come hungry, as you may need to be rolled out!

This place is probably my favorite go to birthday spot. It is perfect for people who want to variety and love meat! They serve lots of steaks but if you are not a person into the rare or medium rare meat you will have to...More

Go hungry, leave happy! If you like meat you will love this place. There is an endless supply of many different kinds of meats. They cook the meat on skewers on open rotisserie behind a glass that you can actually see if you wish. They...More

Outstanding wait staff and the food was excellent. I ordered the #2 buffet and there was plenty of variety, and surprisingly, the grilled pineapple was my favorite. My wife got just the salad bar and she loved it....lots of great quality veggies, cheeses, and olive...More

I've had several experiences with Brazilian restaurants similar to Carnaval. The Gouchos come around and serve you an abundant amount of grilled meats and then there's a salad bar to compliment it. At this particular restaurant they had different price points at which you received...More

This was the best rodizio experience we've ever had, and we have been to multiple rodizio restaurants. The salad bar was so fresh and delicious! I also had a great pomegranate mojito. All the meat was wonderful, including the lamb which I'm normally not a...More

I've been there a few times and really didn't want to like it, because I'm a meat and taters sort of diner, and am often guilty of rating restaurants by the pound, but I have to admit, the atmosphere is what appeals. A uniquely lively...More

Who doesn't love flamed grilled meat and pineapple on a large skewer! Also the salad bar was fresh and delicious, a little more on the expensive side but you get what you pay for! Delicious Brazilian food.

The environment and food are great. Absolutely loved the cooked pineapple! Only complaint is that sometimes it seems like you wait a little too long for a guy to come around and offer you meat.

There are 3 levels to our Gaucho meal. The difference on the 3 levels is the selection of meats. Kids 6 to 12 years old the pricing will be $11.95, $14.95, and/or $16.95.

I don't know the exact prices, but I would say around $20-$30 per person depending on what you order. We really like the meat and pineapple from the grill. They also have a great salad bar. We don't usually eat the sides... More
