First time at a Brazilian steakhouse. Food was absolutely amazing. The server Christopher was wonderful and made sure we were taken care of. The GM took his time to introduce introduce himself and ask us about our experience. 10 out of 10 as far as I'm concerned

I loved it. My first time here. However our server disappeared half way through the night, I’m guessing she got cut because we were looking for her. But overall loved it

It was my fathers 50th birthday and he loved it. The waitress was super nice and helpful. We did have some moments were we felt like our table kept getting skipped because we were in the corner. We did have our green signs up but once we asked our waitress for help we were fine after that.

Chama Gaucha has always been really good, including the service. Our last visit, the service was incredible despite the fact that they were packed! We were extremely impressed with our waiters, the cleanliness & well managed facility and the food. BTW-usually don't order dessert but did this time and their cheesecake was delish!

This isn't our first experience at Chama Caucha, but it was a bit frustrating. We had asked for refills on the sides (plantains, mashed potatoes, and palenta) and were constantly promised them, but it took over thirty minutes to get any...in fact, at several points, we spotted them walking right past our table to others to deliver refills. As my wife is not a heavy meat eater, this was a major part of her meal and she went quite a time without getting any. When we did finally get potatoes, they were cold and not very tasty...the rest of the experience was good, but that was extremely disappointing. Not to mention that now it costs more for lunch, we didn't feel this experience made us feel like it was worth returning in the near future.

Chama Gaucho is always a great treat with wonderfully cooked meats and top notch service. Highly recommend this location due to its personal touch by the wait staff to listen to what you like and returning to your table to accommodate.

Food is great when you can get it. Meat servers often overlooked our table and would walk straight past into the dining area, past our table without looking. We had to ask our servers to have them return to us because we had our cards turned to green. We were a table of six so it’s not like we were hiding. It may have been where our table was located. Certain cuts of meat never appeared such as lamb or sausage. We paid the full rate so would have liked to have been offered what was on the menu. We were overcharged on our drinks and they would not honor one of the guest’s gift card. She was told that she should next time call ahead and give the gift card number so that they could apply it…..never heard of that before! After some discussion they applied 80% of the card value towards her bill and again told her to call ahead with the gift card to use the remaining 20%. Our experience this visit was somewhat lacking compared with our previous meals. Not sure if I want to spend $100 per person again.

Overall, our experience at Chama Gaucha was fantastic. My only problem is that although we had our cards flipped to green, multiple servers (meat) passed us by.

Excellent food and service! Love the beautiful interior design. Definitely an "energetic" noise level. My husband and I were seated directly across from each other and unable to hold a conversation without leaning across the table and raising our voices. I think it is because they are only using half their restaurant right now so folks are not spread out real well...but the food and service were so fantastic we will be back...just knowing we are not there to talk! LOL

We go to Chama very often. Unfortunately, we had a very bad server. He was more engaged with other patrons and was not proactive in checking on us. When we finally received the bill (after waiting 30min for it) we accidentally used an expired credit card. When the server returned he just handed it back and said “thank you and see you tomorrow”. As we opened it, WE realized the receipts show declined and caught the error. We tried to flag him down multiple times and finally got him over after about 15 mins and advised him of our error of an expired card and gave him a new one. He was clearly surprised and then apologized that he didn’t catch that and he had a quick thank you and proceeded the new card and returned.
