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.

We had an amazing experience. Service was excellent and the food was delicious! They even remembered to celebrate my son's birthday when the dessert came out. We can't wait to go back again.

You come to a rodizio style steakhouse for the meat. So I should start by saying the meat was excellent. We went on Valentine's, and there was a lot of variety, excellent flavor, and brought quickly to the table.

Again, it was a busy night. However, I think they should take care of the customers with reservations instead of trying to take all the walk-ins. Due to their taking walk-ins, they had less to offer those of us who had later reservations. They were out of fried plantains. The mashed potatoes were instant and gross (this may be true always, not sure). There were no other sides besides the bread (their website has Brazilian side dishes such as: rice, beans, polenta, fried banana, mashed potatoes and our famous cheese bread). It would have made a huge difference to have something besides instant potatoes! The salad bar was average. It wasn't bad, but it does not compare to Fogo de Chao or Texas de Brazil, which are the gold standard for this rodizio of restaurant. No artichoke hearts, little cheese, no soups, basically lettuce and toppings. It was unattractive enough we only made one trip.

Other results of a busy night and not focusing on reservation customers was our table was stapled together with no tablecloth. There was no ambience to be had. The service was spotty (the food servers was the exception). We might try it again, but it might be worth slightly more for similar meat and better everything else

We booked reservations a week in advance for Valentines Day and showed up 15 minutes early. Upon arrival there was a line to the door and no hostess or anyone addressing the line. There was a family of 16 ahead of us and a few couples. A server seated the table of 16 and another 10 minutes passes by with no one addressing us. An older couple behind us went and complained and was seated before us and the couple in front of us. Again, waited another 10 minutes and someone behind us went and complained to a server. The manager comes up and seats a couple who came in 20 minutes after us, without addressing the whole line of people. Everyone who was there before this couple told the manager they came in way after them. He proceeded to tell everyone we were next amd ignore us and seat the couple. I would understand if it was simply busy... but reservations were required. They either over booked or sat people who didnt have reservations (because they were not checking reservations). Not only was the service non existant, but there were many people at their tables who did not look happy. People in line had no masks on and the salad bar was open, to which people would go up to with no mask on. They weren't even taking names or checking for reservations. We ended up leaving before being seated or even addressed... 40 minutes later. This was supposed to be my boyfriend's first experience at a Brazilian Steakhouse and we were really looking forward to it but this was our absolute worst experience at a restraunt ever.

Didn't take in to count how many reservations there were, manager sat people out or order didn't know what he was doing. Their server Ari was their saving grace very personable very quick.

Decent meal. Food was outstanding. But service was disorganized and slow. Sides not replenished. Wine order took a lot of effort to even get in. Setting ok. All in all an ok experience.

Valentines dinner. Our table service was horrible as our waiter never came and checked on us. However, I saw other waiters who attended to their tables in timely manner. Meats were overcooked and dry. Bill was incorrect by approximately $100 with another tables alcohol being listed on our bill. We do not drink alcohol. Food was average for price paid. Do not think we will come back.

Although our reservation was for lunch on Valentines Day, we were also there to celebrate my 60th birthday. Just as with our previous experiences dining at Estampa Gaucha, the food was amazing and the service was first rate. The wait staff was a little slim in numbers, however, they more than made up for it with their punctuality and pleasant demeanor. Two thumbs up!!

This was our first trip so we didn't know what to expect. Our waiter was a little difficult to understand but fortunately, there were a number of people available to answer our questions. All of the staff were friendly and very competent. The food - well, I have never tasted such tender and delicious meat in all my life. The flavors were fantastic and the filet was like eating butter. It just melted in your mouth. It is expensive, but from my point of view, it is well worth every penny. If you are a meat lover, don't fill up on salad.
