Brazilian
In the extreme south of Brazil, there is a land of rich and strong rural traditions, families have been gathering on weekends, for centuries , to celebrate life around a barbecue"CHURRASCO". There they talk, laugh, dance, enjoy themselves and specialize in grilling many types of meat. Thus, the CHURRASCO became the best representation, the "Trademark" or as the Brazilians say, "ESTAMPA" of the GAÚCHO lifestyle, such Denomination is given to the inhabitants of Rio Grande do Sul, the most southern state of Brazil. Today, here at ESTAMPA GAÚCHA, with great pride, we bring you the best of our churrasco, our culture. We are looking forward to show our hospitality and win your loyalty for the excellence of our food and services. Come and experience this reality. Make your reservation and join our family.

Food on the salad bar looked old. Meats where all overcooked and very dry. Definitely not a good brazilian steakhouse. We where looking forward to going and trying them out. But now that we have. We definitely wont be back. They have a lot of work to do.

We had gone to another Brazilian Steakhouse (no name will be provided) in the past. This one was better!!! The service was incredible! The food was super!!! The owner (manager?) was very friendly and visible. There was a Brazilian drink he walked around offering (fruit flavored) which was smooth and very tasty! I would suggest this Restaurant, Estampa Gaucha, to anyone...I already have actually! Very enjoyable.

Our first visit here, the service was very good. Several of the offerings were poor at best. For example, the shrimp was so dry and over cooked you couldn't peel the shell from them. Pork ribs also dry and inedible . The servers were polite and friendly which helped save the experience.

If you like a Brazilian steakhouse, this is the one you want. A small seating area makes for a more relaxed setting and the meats and service are exceptional.

This was a Wednesday get over the hump day ladies outing. The staff were extremely courteous and even the manager was on hand to greet us. We went on a not so busy night and the food was fresh just for us.
This was a first time experience for my party of 5 and we enjoyed it. It’s definitely worth a try

We love Brazilian Steakhouses for their "parade of meats" that come to your table. (My wife is a meat-lover and I want to keep her happy!) I was a little concerned that the waitstaff was "hovering", but they pretty much just stationed a waitress to stand at our end of the dining room so that she could signal when we were ready for another round of food. Overall, a great experience (and dinner).

My husband and I went for Brunch. It was delicious and the service was top-notch. We were expecting a lower prices, however, as the website was not clear that there was a price difference between brunch in Charlotte and the restaurant in Florida.

I’ve eaten in great Brazilian steak houses in Los Angeles, Houston, and several other cities in the US where the food (meat) was outstanding. Our experience last night was less than stellar. What was carved table side was nether tasty , tender or rare. Wait staff had too few customers to take care of so we’re constantly hovering around our table which was annoying. Based on many of the reviews I have read regarding the food and service I too will not be returning. This was an all too pricey negative experience.

Most of meats were super tuff and lacked flavor. We frequently eat at fogo de ciao and get way better meat. The service was very attentive. I hate leaving bad reviews, but it was not a great experience.

Service and food were not as good as I expected.

Lead waiter ignored us. They lost revenue when we wanted to order more drinks but couldn’t because no one would come to our table.

Side dishes weren’t filled as often as we wanted.

If I come to Charlotte again and want Brazilian food, I’ll try the other one first.

Overall disappointed.

The service was good as was the food; however, they had run out of mash potatoes before we arrived so my husband mainly ate meat (as he’s not a big salad person unless there is thousand island). . I was looking for more table decor as I’ve seen at other Brazilian restaurants as well as more ambiance.
