Came here on a Wednesday night with friends and had a blast! The meats were plentiful and fresh. A tad salty, but still delicious! Service was attentive and on point! The Salad Bar and Hot Buffet were okay, but the meats was what I came for. The live Samba Dancing was fun and lively, and the girls were amazing and such sweethearts! I would definitely come back again!

I think what would have made the experience exceptional would have been if the price included dessert . Our waitress was not very attentive but the guy bringing out the meat was on point.

Despite encountering a crowd waiting to be seated at the entrance, we only had to wait about 10 minutes before being seated, ourselves. The staff seemed to be a little harried when we arrived, but we were able to get our drinks ordered and began feasting in a timely manner.
Favorite meats at our table were the Picanha, and Skirt Steak, as both were perfectly roasted and seasoned. Also, the Brazilian Sausage was met with delight. The cheese rolls are always a temptation. Also, having chimichurri available at the salad bar is always a plus.
The place can be a little loud, so if you are looking for a more intimate atmosphere, this may not be your spot.

2nd time in 2 years since my sister moved to Woodland Hills, we love the food, service, people, entertainment and location. We recommend this to all of our friends visiting the area, or that already live near but never had this type of food. Cheese bread on point! Drinks are strong and worth the price. I even requested chicken hearts and they made a skewer just for me! YAY! Protein heaven! $35 all you can eat! Grilled pineapple helps to breakdown the meat so make sure to try a few slices! Such a great spot! Will be visiting again soon!

Dancers were amazing! They performed hourly on a Saturday night, and got the crowd involved.. really fun atmosphere!
The food was good, a little over seasoned (salty/bold flavors!), but I loved it.. not everyone in my group was a fan though..
They have a buffet style area where you serve your own sides, and the meat comes to you! Plenty of choices to choose from, good service.. drinks weren't that great, but reasonably priced.

I've frequented a Brazilian charcuterie (now closed) that had worse service and atmosphere, but the meat was very good. They constantly rotated skewers so everything was cooked to perfection. At Gaucho's Village, everything was overcooked.

I made a reservation to Gaucho Village because I had a great experience a couple of years back when they were at a different location. I only gave it a three stars because of the fact that the food took forever to reach us. Some of the selections seemed overlooked and lacking flavor. The manager did come and check on us and apologized of the delay in the kitchen. Another issue was the entertainment. The other location had a stage and had more dancers. This new location has the dancing around but not centralized. Lastly, customer service was lacking. There were staff being rude to a customer on the phone and made some negative comments at the end. Not good business practice.

The tables are so close together I felt uncomfortable. The buffet food was not great and many of the appetizers were actually cold (like asparagus, yuck!). The beef cuts were actually very good, but the men walking around with the different types never returned with what you asked for after THEY asked YOU what you wanted. Don't ask me if you aren't going to bring it!

The dancers were cool, but it was so crowded I had a hard time seeing them and the music they played had it's speaker right next to our tables, it was so uncomfortable. I will NOT be returning to this restaurant. I wish they still had their old locations, other than cold buffet food, everything else would have been much better in the wider space. TISK TISK sparing quality for costs.

I Asked for garlic beef, an hour later there still no garlic beef reason was still cooking. They keep pushing the pineapple and French fries to our table appx 10 times, chicken only twice, very tough sirloin and tritip no flavor and to the table appx 6 or 7 times, pork spare ribs once, l ask for the more pork ribs and garlic beef numerous times never got any. We had a very disappointing brunch and we still tip 18%.

The food was good, as usual, although they did not stopped by with filet mignon more than once in almost two hours, and they overcharged me on caipirinhas (but they corrected the bill, when I told them about the mistake). The big disappointment was actually the so called samba show: two girls who made an appearance of no more than 3 minutes and did nothing more than shake their butts and their "wings". It was pitiful. I remember how great the show was when they were on Brand Boulevard and I deplore the change. this place has no stage, cannot play live music, and the talented dancers they had in the pasta re gone, and for good reasons. Too bad.

This place states it's to dine with entertainment. They call 2 Brazilian dancers, entertainment ! they danced for 5 minutes (if that), and only for 1 section of the restaurant. They sat my party of 5 in a section don't come around.
The food is OK for the price.
But the Margaritas with cheap tequila are WAY OVERPRICED!!! The server was a bit rude, and they charged me $53.00 for tip- this is ridiculous.
Online states tips included for party of 6 or more - they will take your money one way or another.
I don't recommend this place!!

$5 for bananas is not bad but please tell the customer before hand. Being nickel and dimed at an all you can eat restaurant just left a bad taste. The meat was not really good and the cuts were cheap. I would recommend agora churraacaria down in Irvine which is significantly better in quality, taste and value.

Took my wife on an adventure last weekend and it was well worth the one hour drive from Mission Viejo. The 15 different meats were excellent. And it keeps coming! Can't wait to go back. Brazilian beer was just as good! Our waitress was very helpful and made sure that our first visit was enjoyable and memorable. Your restaurant was exactly like what was presented on Travel Channel.

I went here for my boyfriend and my anniversary last weekend and had one of the best meals ever. The food was amazing. They had a wide variety of meats and they were all delicious. The salad bar was good but we really were happy with the meats. And the grilled pineapple they serve is so good! The drinks were alright, no complaints but nothing to brag about. Our server Alene was very attentive and had good recommendations about what to order and how the whole serving of the food worked. Overall I had a great experience and will definitely be back again.
