Fried plantains, buttery garlic mashed potatoes and fried polenta are served family style. An excellent, extensive wine list and authentic Brazilian cocktails complement the unlimited fare.

Chama Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
LOve going there but they need to organize their reservations and walk ins. I made this reservation days earlier and even place a note saying is two adults and two high chairs. We check in 5:50 resv was at 6pm. Of course we waited. 6:15 nothing while others even recent people that walk in get taken care off, people with children and bigger crowds. They said they are finding high chairs. Like really?! You should have already had it set at least 5min prior to reservations. That’s the only reason I’m giving it an eh stars.
We have been at this restaurant once before which was a great experience. Unfortunately this time we felt very rushed even though we were only there for little over an hour. We did not appreciate feeling rushed considering this was my wife's birthday and a date night. Next time we will choose to go elsewhere.
I was there for my birthday and advised the server of this when we got there. But he missed the opportunity at the end. My son was in the bathroom when we ordered and received our desserts. So, the server brought my son's dessert out with Happy Birthday drawn on plate.
Everything was wonderful minus when we came in. We made a reservation for 630. Had to wait about 15 minutes. I asked the girl at the desk several times what was the point of making a reservation if we had to now wait still. She was trying very hard to avoid my question and blow us off. I then sent my husband up to ask and same thing. A group that came in after us got seated. Highly irritated, I walked up again and asked the girl and again she nervously tried to blow me off and avoid giving me a straight answer. A few minutes later we got a table. After that our servers were wonderful, food was amazing. All was good.
We had a large group reserved for 14 people, and had 12 people show up. This was a work-related Christmas party. The table was in a great spot and very cozy for our large group; it was far enough from the high-traffic area, yet close enough to the salad bar. Our server was excellent; he was available at any given moment and fulfilled all of our requests. The meat servers had visited our table more than plenty and offered us more than we could indulge in. Overall, a well-coordinated dining experience for our large group. We all left happy with full bellies, smiles, and desserts to-go. The host gladly took pictures for our large group by the Christmas tree. Fantastic place, better salad bar and higher quality meats than other Brazillian steakhouses I've been to. Definitely will be back and will consider this place for the next party!
We enjoyed our meal at Chama Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse on Christmas Eve. It was busy, but we were seated in a smaller room in the back that was quiet. The meats were excellent and fresh, served quickly and there were more than enough options! We aren't big eaters, so the all-you-can-eat approach wasn't a draw, but the variety was really nice. The salad bar was large, but not exceptional. If I wasn't going to eat meat, I wouldn't order the salad bar as a vegetarian option. This really is a carnivore's delight and there are far better vegetarian options. Fun meal!
Chamagaucha is the one place that my entire family enjoys. It's the SERVICE that brings us back every time. We had a corner table and it seemed we were getting passed over by the guys with the meat...lol Once my husband spoke to the manager, we had more people coming to the table than we could handle. This place has not disappointed us and we pray it never does. Good service is just hard to find. Thank you Chamagaucha for another great family experience. See you in 2018!
Our lunch was very nice. We went for my husbands birthday. We felt very rushed though. Like the servers we're trying to feed us as fast as they could to get us out of the restaurant and to clear the table for the next person even though there wasn't a wait when we were attending .
Never disappoints. Melt in your mouth meat and poultry. Restrain yourself at the salad bar as it is also phenomenal. Don't hesitate to turn your table card to red while devouring a round of meat. Then turn back to green when ready for more. Worth every penny.
Again, Chama Gaucha did not disappoint . Its best quality is the level of attentiveness and responsiveness of its servers - who make sure that every cut of meat comes out promptly, and that you are not left waiting long between courses. Another great experience.
