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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. All of the cuts of meat were well prepared and very tasty. The only area of improvement might be the salad bar. I understand that’s not the focus, but a lot of prepared dishes there, rather than vegetables, etc. of course the service was beyond great.

Greatly enjoyed our visit. Service was first class, from the moment we pulled up. Hostess ensured we knew what would take place, and the servers constantly kept drinks full, and a ready hand to offer food.

Pricey, but worth it from all angles. A special placed and We will definitely be back.

The cuts of meat served were done perfectly and the servers were very friendly and great people. They made sure you had whatever you wanted and as much as you wanted. The wine selections were very good and our group left full and it was an evening of fun. We would come back!

First of all, let me say this was my very first experience at Chama Gaucha. The food was absolutely outstanding, the service was great, great! We loved the atmosphere, and all of the waiters and waitresses were on point! My guest were very satisfied, and we all thought we were going to POP before leaving because we were all full!! This is now my #1 restaurant. I will be recommending all of my family and friends. I celebrated my 20 year milestone with my job, and so glad I chose this remarkable place. Thank you for your kindness, your promptness, and most of all that great food! We will be back really soon.

I've been coming to Chama Gaucha for years. I've always loved the place and feels like coming home most of the time. The food is excellent and consistent from visit to visit. I have noticed the "pace" of the meal has accelerated obe the last few years. I feel more rushed now than I used too. Perhaps it's the excellent frequency the gauchos come by the table, but it may be they feel rushed. The service used to be one on one but now it more often feels like the focus is on the next table instead of the one they are at. Small thing but it can take away from the experience, especially when meat and juice are dropped all over the table and sometimes guests due to lack of focus on what they are currently doing instead thinking where they need to go next. I get it's crowded at times and no one wants to keep customers waiting. But I recommend slowing down, looking people in the eyes during service and returning that "feeling" from years past of the experience. Keep up the fine dining vibe and don't slide towards a traditional buffet vibe.

It was the birthday of my mother in law and we decided to take her to Chama Gaucha our favorite restaurant, as always the service and staff were outstanding, food ultra delicious and the most important part that it was almost the time they close but they stayed there till the last customer left without acting aggressive... we love Chama Gaucha and we can’t recommend it enough.

As a frequent guest in Chama Gaucha, this weekend by far was not a very good experience for us. The gauchos didn’t stop by as often as they used to and they slowed down and drifted just 20 minutes into our dinner. We have to flag our server and requested more meat to come. There were 10 in our party and we didn’t feel full when we left.We all agreed that the service was lacking that night. The crowd was the same as always but I hope that this poor service is not permanent.
