    If you like everything well done and burnt to a crisp, head over to galeto for the worst Brazilian bbq you'll ever have! If you don't ever want your water refilled or anything explained and are fine with one cut of meat every 5 minutes, step right up!

    Everything was very good. I only have two minor complaints. One is they did not open at 5 o’clock they were running a little bit late. The other one is our server did not explain everything exactly. We figured out quickly that we should self serve the salad bar. And then he explain the red and green stickers which was good. Our first experience. After you get your salad when you’re ready for meat you turn the red sticker over and it is green. All the meats were very. Good. You get a variety which we liked. We all enjoyed the evening. There is a fixed price per person plus drinks.

    Fantastic service, decent meat that definitely matched the price point. Sometimes a tad dry, or a bit salty, but nothing completely off putting. Salad bar was nothing special but also not atrocious. Service really did bring the experience up, and the cake was one of the best I’ve had.

    I would love to say that this was a great experience for my family and I, this was my families second experience going to a Brazilian steak house and the server Kevin was really attentive to us,and had a great attitude and we just found out it was only his fist day serving, the salad bar was also to die for, the lobster bisk was defiantly the best for me . the meats were so good, the atmosphere was very pleasant as well. I recommend this place for sure to anyone that wants to have a nice evening of good food and hospitality. We will be going back soon. thanks for the great evening Mike Mc

    Overall, this wasn't bad. The main concern I had was that the food was inconsistent when brought out. Their salad bar is amazing, their bread is amazing. The meat is the real inconsistent part here. We got some steak that was rare, and other steaks that were a bit more medium. The flavors involved were also very inconsistent. Some of the Garlic flavors were heavy on some cuts, where others were minimal. It got to the point where the heavily flavored garlic meats were harder to eat. All in all, it was ok. I wouldn't go back there for an event again. Your results might vary, so who knows. We might have gone on an off day.

    It's always a treat to eat at Galeto.... the only thing.... a shot of whisky (to finish off a great meal experience) was $32!!!! This is twice the amount anywhere in town... I felt disappointed by that surprise and no disclosure on the menu. I would recommend this but.... whoa!!! too much Staff were kind and the frequency of meat selections was amazing along with the quality of cuts. The salad bar is without doubt the best in Oakland.

    Incredibly slow service. My family and I went here for father's day and spent most of the time watching waiters walk by our table for ~30 minutes; and eventually had to start waving them down for service. When we were given cuts of meat, they were also quite stingy. There were a few times when they looked annoyed when we asked for more.

    It was my first time and it was ok. For me having to put in a reservation though I would think it would be a more Quiet ambiance, there was over 10 people next to us that was completely very loud and it was hard to hear what meats the servers was serving because of the large noises crowd. Good was fine and very good.

    We had been talking about how disappointed we were hearing that Galeto was closed because of the pandemic. Finding out recently that it reopened, the guys grabbed the first opportunity to gather here again. We weren't disappointed! Had a great time with really good food.

    Unfortunately our return to Galeto did not conform to the original experience of a few years ago. While the servers were pleasant and attentive, they seemed inexperienced with serving meat as it’s done in a churrascaria. Additionally several of the meats were tough and gristly. The buffet was better: fresh, great variety.

    Had a late reservation but arrived a bit early and the restaurant was mostly empty. The wait staff were tired and communicated it. It showed in the attentiveness to our table. Our waitress checked on us twice and we had to go find water for ourselves. It’s not a place I would patronize again but the young person being celebrated enjoyed it. The place is pricey, I wrote them that it was a graduation dinner and they never mentioned or did anything to acknowledge that it was a special occasion.

    I made reservations for Mother’s Day. Upon entering, the hostess was very pleasant and sweet. She however did not seat us and had the busboy seat us. There were ample tables/seating available but he passed it all and sat us at the last table in the back next to the noisy kitchen. I think it’s rude to have patrons sit all the way in the back where the kitchen is and employees are coming and going when there’s plenty of seating elsewhere. He rather hastily put the menu in front of us and left. The server came immediately, explained the experience so fast that I couldn’t even keep up or hear her and just left after asking us if we wanted water. She didn’t even ask if we wanted to order any other drinks nor gave us any opportunity to ask her for a drink other than water. The meats that came around were extremely bloody, and all cold and old. Most of it was just purely fat and no meat. I wanted a drink other than water, but the server walked by our table numerous times but never stopped to ask us if we needed anything or made any eye contact. She was very present for other tables because o was watching and trying to get her attention. The whole experience wasn’t great and I’m very disappointed. I wanted to make it a special for my mom but Galeto didn’t share the same sentiment. Very subpar experience and not the friendliest or attentive.

    Food was absolutely terrible. Meat was either burnt to a crisp or still mooing. Meat quality was sub par, Service was ehhh. Slow, but friendly staff. Salad bar was depressing. The only thing that was good was the sparkling water. I really wanted to like this place, but it’s a definite no from me.

    The waitress was a sweetheart. I have to say everything else failed. We were not being topped with water unless we would call for their attention. The meat service is stingy comparing to other Brazilian Steakhouses around the Bay area. The meat itself could have had some more of the Brazilian flavors. Buffet area is small again comparing to others but was good food.The atmosphere was pleasant. Unfortunately we will not be retuning. We will stick with Galpao Gaucho -Walnut Creek or Espetus Brazilian Steakhouse.

    This was the first time our party of 4 had been to a Brazilian steakhouse. They were out of the sausage which I wanted to try. The food was very expensive and we mostly got the outside singed parts of the meats. Chicken was very dry. We all agreed we would not go there again, even though some of the beef was enjoyed by the two men in our group. They would have rather had a nice steak meal for half the price.

    My first impression was the fact that this did not look or feel like any authentic or quality Brazilian steakhouse I had ever been to. The buffet was obviously sitting out for quite some time (cold salmon, thick film over the olives, bad lettuce). We paid $150 for two meals, a bottle of water, and two drinks. I didn't get my drink for 30 minutes as they forgot it but brought my husband's timley. Unfortunately, after about 15 minutes, the meat servers start to avoid you and not even visit your table. This was unfortunate because we do not eat port (which was about 50% of the offerings) so we were able to taste about 5 meats. Biggest issue? The whole night after we were both ridiculously sick. Thanks for the 25% off coupon but we will never be back!
