    The food was so delicious and the service was exceptional. This was our first time there and we will definitely be going back. It was my husbands birthday and I was able to order flowers and have them delivered there. They made sure the flowers were on the table when we got there. I couldn't believe how wonderful the staff was. Very much worth the money.

    The food starting with the salad bar was fresh and very well kept up! The drink option were excellent especially the Caipirinha's!! And the dinner was nothing short of excellent. The food just keeps coming. Go hungry and leave very full. Leave room for dessert and an after dinner drink of Licor 43!! Lastly, I can't give a higher rating for the service which was incredible!!!

  • Manager was Unapproachable & Rude

    Dined on 11/22/2014
    My wife and I have dined here several times and have celebrated our past anniversaries here, but this one horrible experience ruined our perception of this restaurant. The meat selections rarely came by our table and asking for anything (including lemon slices) was such a pain. Our designated waiter was non-existent from the start and we found out that he's constantly by the other tables entertaining the more "mature diners." I guess young professionals like us are typically ignored in restaurant settings. They used to be attentive to their guests, but something is definitely lacking. We tried to address our concerns to the manager, but he was insensitive. He didn't even care to listen what we have to say. Though on two positive notes, they were quick in refilling our water and the Customer Service Team Lead was nice enough to provide the number to the Corporate Office.

    Honestly, I had the best service that I've ever had in a restaurant here. Worth every penny I spent. We celebrated my boyfriend's 21st birthday there and it was spectacular!! Extremely courteous staff, food was perfection (sides and meat) my water never went below half full in my glass before it was refilled, the staff remembered to come back to our table since we requested 'well done' meat. My chair was pushed in for me anytime I got up then sat down, table cleaned off every few minutes, sides refilled without asking, nice scenery. Go here. You will not regret it!!! Oh and bring your appetite! ($45 a person about but soo worth it!!)

    We love this restaurant. This is our go to spot for special occasions. Better than a traditional steakhouse because you can try 12 different cuts of meat/steak for the same price. And their service and attention make everyone feel like they're a VIP.

    Just tried this place on a lark. I am not a big meat eater, but the folks I was dining with were in the mood for steak, so I thought I would give this a try. I was amazed by the salad bar, and by the food offered at the table. It was a lot of fun, and the wine list was amazing. I plan on bringing my team back for a Christmas dinner!

    Comparably priced to any high end steakhouse. The staff is very knowledgeable regarding the food as well as drinks and wines. The salad bar was excellent an thankfully the meats were not over salted. We had a large group (business) and they were very accommodating. I would definitely go back either personal or business.

    Except for the bat service, the rest of the service was great. Waited for our table and walked up to the bar for a drink while we waited. The bartender Oscar looked at my husband and I several times but never acknowledged us, after 15 minutes we left the bar...luckily our table was ready. The food and other services made up what lacked at the bar.

    We enjoy this restaurant so much, we had our wedding celebration dinner here. Food is excellent and you will never leave hungry. On our last visit, we did receive less then stellar service. There was a problem bringing my bottle of wine from the bar. A drink ordered at the bar took a very long time to get to the table. Our plates were not changed out often. The server kept reaching across the table. Our table was not cleared of crumbs. The gauchos didn't notice our green cards after we had our red cards up. Many of these were only noticed because of the exceptional service we have received during previous visits. All in all, cannot wait to go back.

    If you want to go somewhere and be treated like a queen (king), then this is the place. They take your coat at the table, pull out your chair, put your napkin on your lap and do everything but feed you. The staff is friendly and attentive. The salad bar is good and has upscale items but isn't the best I've ever seen. If you like meat - this is the place for you. 15 cuts and you're able to sample them all and try new things. The garlic mashed, polenta and mini popover rolls are also pretty amazing.

    This is the go to place for Brazilian steak. The service is great. They have a great salad bar too. Lamb chops are great. Be sure to try the Jalapenos and onions for a spicier meal. Prefer this to Fogo de Chao. Would highly recommend.

    The entire experience at Chama Gaucha is wonderful. Service is top notch, the food is outstanding, and the whole vibe of the room is just fun. We were two couples that hadn't seen each other for a while, and we sat there until well after closing time without ever feeling rushed to leave. The wait staff continued to bring us drinks and take care of us. It was great! This is an exceptional restaurant.
