Brazilian Steakhouse

Known for outstanding service, the authentic “churrascaria” offers more than 10 flavorful cuts of meat including lamb, pork, chicken and beef on skewers carved tableside by gauchos. In addition to several cuts of meat, the continuous service includes a trip to the fresh and bountiful salad bar followed by a basket of traditional, mouthwatering pao de queijo (cheese bread). Fried bananas, buttery garlic mashed potatoes and fried polenta are served family style. An excellent, extensive wine list and authentic Brazilian cocktails complement the unlimited fare.

At our restaurant we are proud to bring you all the tradition behind the unique and original Brazilian way of serving meat. Food doesn’t stop arriving until you’ve had enough. Whether it’s a cocktail reception, class reunion, corporate picnic, magnificent wedding reception, or any occasion we can create a great event fueled by our passion for perfection.

                        Service not good at all. We had to wait a lot before anyone would come to our table and offer food. At the end we were still waiting but the server brought the dessert. Not happy with the service.

                        I alerted the staff that I have a wheat allergy and have to eat gluten free and the whole team was so kind and walked me through what I could eat (almost everything) and what I should avoid. Staff were caring and friendly. Food was amazing.

                        The food was excellent, as always, but the service was far below expectations. Our server never brought us plates after we finished our salads. We had to ask a busser for plates. The only time our server re-appeared at our table was when she noticed that one of our wine glasses was empty and she might be able to sell us more alcohol. She never asked if we needed anything or how things were going. Very disappointed.

                        We always visit this restaurant for Brazilian Churrasco. We admire them for their service and selection and quality of meat. Even some of the long standing managers know us by face. We picked this place to celebrate my wife's birthday and expected the same service but it was a heartbreaker from the minute we were seated! There was no bread and sides delivered to our table when we were seated. So we asked, and asked, and asked, finally almost half way into our dinner, some bread and plantains arrived. We sat down, got our salad plates and usually we get servers visiting our table almost every minute to check if we are ready for our dinner plates. But we just kept waiting and waiting and then finally had to catch one of the servers and ask for some plates! Finally after we were done eating, I was eagerly waiting for a manager to check on us to bring out the surprise birthday dessert, because I mentioned it in Open Table reservation, then called the morning of the reservation to make sure the restaurant got the memo, and then upon arrival, I checked at front desk to make sure they bring it out for her! Nothing happened! Luckily, one of the managers there saw the gif packs on our table that I brought for my wife and asked what the occasion was, and upon mentioning, he was nice enough to bring out a nice complimentary dessert. But that also told us that there were no communication between floor managers and front reservation folks! I was disappointed with the overall experience which is unfortunate for such a great restaurant. I hope it is a one time glitch but we are bummed it had to be on a special occasion for us :(

                        My husband and I picked the best restaurant to eat at for our first wedding anniversary. From the moment, we got there and were seated to the moment we left, the service was fantastic. The food was so delicious and we tried half of the meats that were coming around to us since we got full. We will be returning again.

                        Mal servicio por parte de nuestra mesera, comemos muy seguido en este restaurante y el servicio siempre es excelente, a excepción de esta vez. Pero seguiremos yendo porque sólo tuvimos mala suerte con la mesera que nos atendió este día.

                        As always the food at Chama Gaucha was amazing. I do have an issue. I find it very disconcerting that they did not advertise they were charging $14 over their normal price just for Mother’s Day. This restaurant is definitely a special occasion kind of restaurant and to not make diners aware of the price increase prior to their arrival is rather dishonest.

                        Everything was great until paying the bill. Our waiter took 30 mins to return to our table for the bill. He forgot what we ordered and itemized everything we ordered again. He then left for another 30 mins and never returned. I contacted another waiter and she had told me he had left the restaurant. Manager was contacted and he did discount my meal which was nice but waiting an hour for the check was terrible

                        It was Mother’s Day so it was busy. The service was a little slow but maybe they were understaffed for this reason. I would try again but not on a holiday and see how it is. Food was great though

                        Service was a bit slow at first but given it was Mother’s Day that was to be expected. My family complimented the food and how it was better than the other churrascarias they’ve been to.

                        We have a tradition going back 5-6 years of Mother’s Day lunch at Chama Gaucha. Yes, it’s that good that we come back year after year. Prices have gone up, as they have for everything, but the quality and variety of food along with the FANTASTIC service make it worth the price for a special occasion. Don’t be shy, if there is something you want just ask. The servers will make it happen with a smile (even if it’s behind a mask). We even had a vegetarian in our party, and she really enjoyed the salad bar. Top choices: Picanha Bottom Sirloin (seriously, my favorite) Lamb chops Shrimp

                        The ambiance is always good, but the service last night was subpar. It was my wife and I and we got passed over several times with the servers bring food. Our server was ok, mot to attentive. Will probably be a while before we go back or if we do.
