    Did not disappoint! As a vegetarian, I was apprehensive about dining here but the salad bar did not disappoint! My carnivore friends loved the constant flow of meat - one loved the rare pieces and one medium rare. Wait staff were all great and made each detail perfect. Complimentary dessert for the person we were celebrating.

    The service, the food, and the ambience were impeccable. We brought my son here for his college graduation dinner on the recommendation of my older son. We were all very impressed. With a degree in Business Management, he commented on how well the restaurant operated. Thanks for making it a memorable experience for him. We won’t wait for a special occasion to come back.

    We discovered this restaurant by accident during an Air Force graduation for my son 4 years ago we have come back every time we come to San Antonio it’s become a tradition for our family of four sons and now to daughter-in-law‘s. Food is outstanding but as you read in previous reviews it is the service it is this restaurants above and beyond any other Brazilian steakhouse. It has the ambience have a high price restaurant but is no more expensive than the other Brazilian steakhouses. We would never go to another one if we are in the area

    We love going here for special occasions however, this time was just a little off. The food was still amazing but I had to ask for refills on a few items and one item was brought after 2 reminders and right before we received our bill as we were getting to leave. The staff always walks as if the building is on fire, but this night a few of us actually got a little anxious because they were moving so fast! I get the reasons but it made us feel rushed in everything, including eating our meal. We weren’t seated in the main area so we also felt the variety of meats offered had less attention paid to it. And we would also have our card placed on the green side and staff looked at us served another table and while still having a full skewer looked our way and AGAIN walked by. For the first time we since we started going here, we felt so rushed (we came at 3 pm) that we really didn’t get to enjoy our meal and our time on this date. With my birthday coming up I want to rethink about where I want to go to celebrate it. Solely because of the rushing around by staff.

    This was my 3rd visit and it was the best. I requested a table in a certain area and that helped us not to feel so crowded. The service was impeccable, it was always good but definitely kicked up a notch this time. The salad bar was fresh and the meats were delicious.

    We went as a party of four and everyone said that the food and service was great. I personally have difficulty forking-over $300 for a single meal (food plus tip only) but if money is no concern, I highly recommend Chama Guacha for an excellent dining experience.

    My son wanted to try a Brazilian steakhouse and he chose Chama Guacha on our recent trip to San Antonio. It was a truly wonderful dining experience and I would recommend it to anyone! The food was amazing and all the employees were helpful, courteous, professional, and knowledgeable. The restaurant also ran like a well-oiled machine. Nutshell - I can not say enough positive comments about it!

    Very disappointing on every level. Highly overrated and misrepresented as a high-end eatery on their website. We had reservations and this was to be a special date with a special young lady and it was not a good experience at all. First of all, their website said there was a dress code of business casual and we were both dressed very nicely and shocked when we were greeted with the majority of the customers in summer beach wear consisting of shorts T-shirts and flip flops! Many were dirty and sweaty. We felt like we were in a Wal Mart. Disgusting for this type of dinner venue. I've gone to strip clubs with better dress codes. Change the website dress code to Grunge or Wal Mart attire or take the dress code reference completely off the site. The noise level was nothing other than ridiculous and we gave up trying to talk because we got tired of saying" What did you say" or yelling across the table at each other. Service was strained due to the huge number of customers and the food was mediocre at best. We left after only being there for 45 mins due to the terrible atmosphere and noise. I offered to take her to Carrabba’s or Maggiano’s for a quiet dinner where people are not dressed like pigs but she was obviously too embarrassed to say yes and we stuck it out though one round of food before leaving. I spent nearly 200.00 for a 45 minutes experience akin to a root canal without anesthetic. I will never set foot in this restaurant again and will warn everyone I know about the awful experience we had there. Get your act together and quit going after the quick money by letting in the great unwashed or stop advertising as a high-end dining experience. You can’t have it both ways. I went to Fogo De Chao last year and the experience was wonderful. Enforced dress code, quiet dinning with excellent service. You could learn from them.

    It was all absolutely delicious and the service really was amazing. We had just had a very bad experience at another Brazilian Steakhouse and you could not compare the two experiences. Our server was so attentive and just plain nice. I like my meat well done and every staff member returned when he had well-done meat. I asked for plain potatoes for my 5-year-old and was immediately asked if there was a special cut of meat he was partial to so some could be brought out. I really like when they make sure everyone at the table is taken care of and it made my night as a mother and a person more enjoyable.

    Overall, a great experience at Chama Gaucha San Antonio! The food and service are top-tier. Slightly more expensive than I remember but still a good value. The salad bar and wine selection can't be beat! It was a little busier and noisier than I would have liked but was still a good experience. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a fine dining option.

    Great food and a great "special occasion" restaurant. Most people dress for the location...except the guy at the table next to ours in wife beater and ball cap turned backwards. I do wish they would enforce a minimum standard. The staff across the board busts their tail so patrons have best possible experience. Overall, highly recommend.
