Espetus Churrascaria is a Brazilian steakhouse. This restaurant began in 2003, as an homage to the Brazilian cowboys who would cook each night by roasting meat over an open flame. Today, this form of dining has evolved to a totally unique culinary experience. Guests at Espetus are seated with a red and green painted wood block on the center of the table. If the diners are hungry, they place the green side face up and servers will come by with a wide array of grilled dishes on skewers. Whenever they are hungry, they simply flip the block to red.
Espetus has an extremely large and varied menu for guests to enjoy. Guests can enjoy items like sirloin steak, top sirloin, filet mignon, flap steak, grilled chicken, marinated shrimp, rum-soaked pineapple, pork belly, flame-grilled bison and many more. Espetus also has a cold bar with items like rolls and pasta.
Excellent quality of meats, an amazing choice of fresh side dishes and very friendly service! We loved it
Constant barrage of food coming to your table and everything is so good.
I'm becoming a regular at this restaurant. Food and service are consistently excellent. I plan to return soon and recommend my friends visit.
Apart from the usual excellent dining experience, the pork belly and grilled pineapple has become one of my favorites. Of course, theres the usual pao and deep fried polenta to start you off on the right foot.
Every time we come here the service is fabulous, food is delicious, and the ambiance is great. We have recommended this place to many friends who would all agree. We will continue to come here and recommend friends or bring friends with us. It is great for a romantic dinner for two or a group of friends. The overall price is not bad for the service you will receive and the food you will try. I highly recommend any one try this place at least once.
We come over to Espetus once or twice a year for special occasions. Usually my birthday and always a group of at least 6 but up to 20. Never any issues. Food is always fantastic and the service is impeccable, outstanding and so much more.
We absolutely love dining here.
Meat is cooked perfect, and the buffet you could just eat from there and be satisfied. The servers are fast and courteous. Again, the best restaurant in the Bay Area......
My guest and I, had a wonderful evening. We were celebrating a birthday. For us there were no negative comments. We were hesitant to eat the chicken hearts, so we cannot say whether they were bad or good. All the other meats were delicious and well prepared. One of the best features, is the array of salad and assortment of vegetables available. Culturally, we did not find the milk cake good, but I'm sure if we had been raised to eat that type of cake, it would have been great. The relaxed ambiance of the restaurant made our day, after a stressful work week. We like our the waiters did not make us fill out of place or ignorant because it was our first visit, so we will return and soon.
Everything was awesome!
Fun place to eat with friends. The selection of meats they bring around is great.
Espetus Churrascaria is a great restaurant for everyday dinning. It has a extentive salad bar and
the Entrees are fantastic. The meat is carved at table side and taste freshly grilled. Everyone I have brought here has been enjoyed every aspect of the restaurant.
After procrastinating the whole week for Mother's Day, we had to settle on making a reservation for the next day. Although there were still more guests than we expected to be dining on a Monday afternoon, the servers were very attentive and hospitable. In addition, the meats were slices of juicy heaven, the salad bar was extensive, and the dessert was to die for. We cannot wait to come back soon!
i went to the restaurant on Mother's Day. There is a good place for my mom. The service was very well. And we like all meats.
Espetus! All you can eat Brazilian meats! Enough said. Pricy if you aren't an eater.
I simply love this restaurant. For the most part the staff is nice and courteous. Food is a plenty!!!! I always need to be fork lifted out! 😀
Parking was horiable and servos poor, not Friendly. No one wared that you had to walk over three blocks for parking and that's half servers didn't speak English and desk clerk was rude. Would not go there again or tell anyone I liked that it's even worth dinning at😡😡😡😡😱 wife was not happy and it was Mother's Day with whole family very disappointed.
Brazilian barbecue was definitely a fun thing to try, and really tasty. It's something I'd definitely recommend people try, but at $70 a plate, it's not something that I'd do regularly.
This is one of our favorite special occasion restaurants. We usually only go for special occasions because it is pricey. It is all you can eat but it's still not a great value. The food is great especially if you're a meat lover. They do have a buffet of sides and salads but the reason to go there is the meat! Servers come by your table with large skewers of meat and slice off as much as you want
With plenty of choices in the bay area, this is still a good place to go for carnivore variety. Side dishes are good as well.
Espetus was a nice change of pace for a traditional steakhouse, being a Brazilian style steakhouse. They serve many different kinds of meat which they bring to your table and slice it how you prefer. The meats are on large skewers so it seems like they grill the meats in a large rotisserie though I may be wrong, it's my first time there. Did I mention that it also AYCE? So come hungry or else it would be a waste, there were a few cuts of meat I missed due to being full very quickly. Other notables were a buffet style for side dishes and salads as well as live music and a good selection of drinks and their desserts were delicious. It's quite pricey so be prepared for a hefty bill if you order drinks and dessert. Avoid at all costs if you are a light water otherwise it would be a waste of money.
We had a very good time for my wife and our other couple we invited. The food was excellent. The servers were polite and attentative. We never had a meal presented to us in that type of fashion.
All you needed was some Brazilian women dancers shimmying by the table. : )
Thanks for the experience.
Food was excellent! If you like meat, go easy on the salad offerings or you will walk out overloaded!
I've heard so many good thing about this restaurant from so many people also pictures, finally decided to go for my birthday. It was beyond my expectations! I'm not too familiar with Brazilian food but it was delicious and well worth it for me. Although, the meats took a while for them to come back to our table. I'm a slow eater so I didn't mind too much but my friends had to ask a couple times for them to come to our table. Also, some of the meat only came around once.
Overall, I hade an amazing dinner and an experience of a life time. I wish to go back with a date next time 😊
Pricey but well worth it. The food was excellent.
So my 4* review is because I was never introduced to my server!!!food was good and people very polite and attentive, but that little detail made me wonder how does that place works....since I worked in a restaurant with the same concept of food and believe me there is chance for that to happen!! Or might be 'cause I look young and they thought it wasn't worth it!but letting them know I still tipped 20%... it is a nice place to dine the food is good at least the beef !!! Chicken and pork I prefer pampas in Palo alto!!
Amazing food and service. Had a wonderful time.
The food & service was excellent. The bacon wrapped filet minon, pork belly & grilled shrimp was delicious! Espetus is one of my go to steakhouses.
Love this restaurant! Food and service was amazing!
Service and food wss excellent!
All staff was great. Took care of the vegan guest by showing him salad bar and noted food with milk/yogurt or chicken stock. Every one was friendly. Great set up with big glass windows. Lots of space and not noisy at all. Food was great! Will definitely come back.
Went for lunch and had a plate of the salad bar which has much more than just salad. The meat on the spit was seasoned well and maybe a little too salty sometimes, but overall very good. Enjoyed several servings of about 10 different choices of meat. Service was excellent and as long as it said go, the servers kept coming with the meat. I liked the pork belly the best.....
This was our first but not last time at Espetus. The food was delicious & the service was excellent and even though we were full, we shared their yummy chocolate cake dessert. The Coconut Mojito was excellent. We can't wait to go back again.
This restaurant has incredible food, good service and cozy ambiance. Have been coming back for years, and despite the higher end prices, it is worth it!
Espetus was a great experience from start to finish. We celebrated my 12 year old's birthday, and he was just impressed and delighted at the ambiance, the food, the service, so it was a great choice and a smashing success. The service was friendly and attentive in a genuine kind of approach everyone was ready and glad to explain the unique dining experience of enjoying Brazil's broad spectrum of tasty grilled meats. I certainly recommend Espetus for birthdays, anniversaries or just a special night out, for any one, family or romantic type event.
Everything was on point. We definitely be back!
Make sure not to fill up on the salad bar... The Best experience EVER will follow!
