Known for outstanding service, the authentic “churrascaria” offers more than 12 flavorful cuts of meat including lamb, pork, chicken and beef on skewers carved table side 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 absolutely love this place. It is our "go-to" for special occasions, and everyday dining. The staff is amazing. This reservation we celebrated my mother-in-law's 75th birthday. Everyone is always so attentive. My Mother in Law was visiting from Romania; the attention that the everyone provided made her feel like a queen. I cannot "thank-you" enough for making her feel so special. And Jordan, I can't thank you enough for the great wine selection. I could absolutely go on and on about how much I love this place and the wonderful staff. But I guess i should mention how fabulous the food is too! Well, first of all it COW for god sakes (need I say more) but if you have vegan amongst your group they will have MANY options in additional the wonderful salad bar.

This is a traditional Brazilian steakhouse and it's the farthest thing from disappointing. The food is absolutely amazing, the salad bar has great choices. But the best part is the service. We never had an empty glass or had to wait for anything. While our bill was pricey, we had five people in our party as we were celebrating a birthday, and if you plan on having drinks, you should plan to have a pricey bill. Overall we can't wait for another reason to go back.

We go to Chama Gaucha all the time. We absolutely love it and rarely rarely have complaints. This time I’m assuming there must have been some confusion on who was supposed to attend to us because no one came to greet us and get drink orders. We sat there about 20 minutes, and since no one came by, We simply decided to start serving ourselves salads since we are regulars and know the drill. We wanted more drinks from the bar, but still no one had come by as our waiter to offer any drinks or introduce themselves. There were people replacing our dirty plates, but no waiter attending to our table. We finally decided to just randomly wave someone down and ask for drinks. I felt bad because they probably weren’t assigned to our section, but we had no waiter and couldn’t get drinks or waters refilled. Like I said, we are regulars and know how the system works and have only had a bad experience 2 times out of the probably 200 we have been there. We love chama guacha. It just sucked because we were there for my birthday and our check was over $600 and we didn’t have anyone serving us.

Very disappointing for a Sunday dinner at 6pm. The crowd noise was too high and the scene was like a Chuck and Cheesy Family Pizza dinner. At $60 a head I would expect a better ambiance along with better offering of beef. It was almost an hour before we were offered Rib Eye steak and we had to ask for it. They push the bottom sirloin steak and were only asked twice about the Filet Mignon steak. We were never offered the 12 cuts of meat, that they advertised.

This was possibly one of the best meat journeys I've had. All the cuts were so amazing and full of flavor, I never even touched the salt and pepper. The salad bar is something I'd go back just for that. The staff was on point, courteous, and knowledgeable. Yes this place is expensive, but it was worth every penny. If you leave hungry, you did something wrong.

Service was fantastic!!!!! Food was very good. Noticed they don't make the rounds will all cuts. Seem to get the same cuts over and over again and rarely got the premium cuts. (filet, etc). Could of been just bad luck? Only real gripe is it is very loud. We had six people and could not hear people across the table at all! Too loud.

Birthday dinner, superb experience . Staff and meal were fantastic. The other guests were less enjoyable, baby crying in the corner and kids at the next table were playing on the chairs but otherwise an outstanding place to eat. I’ve been here many times and love the food and the liquor cart is awesome

4⭐️service even on a busy Easter dinner. Many attentive waiters/waitresses always ready to seat you if you've left your table to get more food or go to the restroom. Ashley(?) a waitress said she'd be our server after we were seated in the back but that was the only time she came & never came back?? It wasn't a problem because we ended up flagging down anyone if we needed anything. Meats were well-seasoned on this visit. This is my favorite restaurant in SA because I know I will be treated as a VIP from start to finish. It's always nice to say hi to our favorite Churascurria server too--Gilmar!!

Chama Gaucha did its usual great job on Easter. Although it was crowded, our reservation got us in right on time. We were greeted promptly and never got the "my hair is on fire" vibe from any of the very busy but attentive servers. As always, the meats were done and presented beautifully, but I believe I also ate my weight in the small but amazing little rolls that servers kept stocked at our table. The salad bar is varied and spectacular; one could get by on this alone. To finish, my husband and I had the Flaming Cheesecake; it's NYC cheesecake doused in Liquor 43 and lighted for drama. Criminally rich and tasty. This wasn't our first trip to Chama Gaucha and will NOT be our last!
