    Usually I have a good experience with Chama Gaucha but this time we visited with the intention of celebrating my birthday, unfortunately the Hoster was very rude, because I have my baby with me and she have to give us a bigger table, it looks like it was an inconvenient for her because we made reservations for 4 people. Her attitude and tone of voice towards us when she saw me with my baby was bad and make me feel very uncomfortable.

    We could not wait to bring our friends from out of town to this restaurant. We enjoyed it so much the first time we came. Very different experience this time. We had reservations. Showed up 10 minutes early. we were sat 20 minutes late. Our waiter came and gave a little speech on how it all works. In the speech, told our guests not to visit the market table. After walking away, we had no plates, or drinks, he finally walked by a few minutes later and we then asked for plates so we could start receiving the meats as they came. Finally received plates. To make a very long story short, from this point on we were ignored, until we would ask for something, then someone would race up to the table take care of 1 person and race away. We had no one stopping at our table. They were avoiding eye contact with us and if our eyes met, they'd spin in the other direction. the side dishes, did not come to table until we were all almost finished with the meal. I had a coke which also did not arrive until i was mostly done. My guests were still eating and waiting on someone (anyone) to come by with fresh meats, and the waiter came and asked if we wanted desert. Sir, we are still waiting on dinner! I was embarrassed after talking this place up so much, and that was how we were treated. we felt very rushed, and ignored. If I am dropping $500 for 4 people to eat, I expect better service. As did my guests I wont be back. Neither will any of the other 3 in our party, nor their families. Waste of money, and time. I wish I had taken my guests somewhere that would have given them a better experience.

    Wether you like steak or not, this place is a must! The Salad Bar alone superseeds the value that one will pay coming to this place. When it comes to authentic Brazilian food, this place is a step up from Fogo De Chao, that's why I come here. The Steak and meat quality, variety is absolutely amazing and the service is unlike any other. This place is a must if you have not yet been here. You will thank me later.

    Everything was perfectly seasoned and juicy "prime" quality meats. We went on a Thursday evening and service was a little slow. We waited a few times for the meat servers to make their way to our table..but they were fully booked. Still highly recommend. Best Brazilian Steakhoise in Chicago and suburbs.. you won't be disapointed.

    Overall, I wasn’t super impressed. The ladies up front were really nice. Salad bar was just okay. I am not sure who our server was because there were so many different people bringing us stuff. Meat selection was like any other Brazilian steak house. My bariatric card wasn’t honored which is at other places so paid $65 for me to eat maybe a kids sized portion because that’s all my stomach can hold. My boyfriend really wanted to come so that’s why we went. It was just an OK place. Don’t think I would be back.

    Impeccable service inside and outside (even by the Valet opening the car door for my wife even though I, not a valet, pulled the car up, thoughtful), Delicious and prompt food servings, I will return. All wait staff and servers were helpful and prompt. Salad bar could use more choices, and noise level not intimate given the large number of seats. One of the best restaurants in the area.

    I had a fantastic birthday there! They're so attentive! They even came over and asked us if we wanted particular cuts of meats. We wanted filet, and they sent it over. Everyone is always nice, and the food is fantastic. They have the best salad bar, and they keep it stocked and clean.
