Brazilian Steakhouse
Welcome to Galeto, a traditional Brazilian steakhouse where your culinary voyage to the heart of the Brazilian cuisine starts.

Our concept is based on an endless dining experience that features two masterpieces: a unique Brazilian barbecue selection of rotisserie meats and a Gourmet Table area displaying signature dishes.

The meat parade holds up to 14 different cuts of beef, chicken, lamb, pork, and sausage all served on skewers and carved tableside on the Rodizio style. The Gourmet bar area displays 45+ exquisite signature dishes from designed salads, charcuterie meats, cheese selections, hot dishes to seafood.

Accompanying the food we have a vast wine list of local Californian wines, South American and European options to your taste. Also, make sure you save room for our artisan dessert menu that will make you dream of it for days with authentic Brazilian options.

We decided to spend Thanksgiving at Galeto and overall it was a good experience. The Salad Bar was really good, though I would have liked to have a pork free bean option. I know that may seem odd, as this is a meat lovers haven, but I don’t eat pork so that was a bit of a bummer. The meat options were plentiful and delicious. Overall, the service was not great as we had to flag down servers for more bread, drinks, etc. Overall, a good experience and meal, but it was an expensive. I would return for a special occasion.

Thanksgiving was promised dinner menu 16 selections of meat, BUT repeatedly came bye with various chicken( same 3) & sausage!! My son asked 3 different people for horseradish, AND 2 people for ANOTHER limeade.
Meats have lots of bristle , 5th time going AND absolutely my last!! Espartus Brazilian steakhouse San Mateo little pricier BUT far superior and worth the drive! Tipped 20% because of holiday, BUT hindsight should've tipped 10%

This is my second time the the Brazilian steak house. I and my lady had a wonderful time. The service was very good for a buzzy restaurant. That staff were making sure everything was right for me and my lady. The salad bar was nice everything was fresh. This is a place I will recommend to my family and friends. Yours truly Mr WILLIAMS .☆☆☆☆☆

With friends and enjoyed our meal at this Brazilian Steakhouse. Fun to do with another couple, good salad bar selection and waiters coming around with selected meats on swords. They just cut off a slice of your selection. Specialty cocktails and desserts also excellent.

All the meats are below average in taste except for the beef ribs which was good. Salad bar was average. Service and frequency of meat arrivals were ok. Would not return or recommend to friends.

Overall, it's a special occasion type restaurant with good Brazilian rodizio-style meats. Lots of birthdays were being celebrated when we dined here mid-November. Wish they had the grilled pineapple & grilled shrimp, didn't see chicken hearts either like Espetus in SF. Has its own ambience for Oakland, as this is the one in Oaktown. The caipirinha made tableside is a nice touch. Would definitely come back for happy hour or come for lunch instead. Attentive service with friendly staff. The cocktails are strong & corkage is $40 per bottle if you bring your own vino.

I guess my only problem is that I have a really small appetite (and I made a point of eating no breakfast or lunch before we went) so in that respect, it was a really expensive dinner for me. My hubby has a small to mid-size appetite so it was fine for him! He tried a very small slice of everything though some were left unfinished. That said, I understand they have to factor in the cost of the vast number of choices and probably waste and/or those appetites that seem endless. I literally ate about 5 small bites of meat after the gourmet table where I took about a handful of romaine, 1 small slice of the baguette, and 2 prawns. The food was delicious, the service was outstanding and the vibe and libations were great! I'd definitely go again but maybe we will try for a Sunday lunch next time!

Food was outstanding. Service for drinks was a little slow, and I think lower lighting would set the mood better. :)

Don’t bother putting any special notes such as birthday, anniversary, etc. I chose the drop down for my husband’s birthday since we were celebrating his 50th but no one acknowledged it. The table next to us had a bday song and a dessert with a candle brought out.

Food was good and the servers with the food were great! TOOOOO noisy! To cramped! Made reservations well in advance and was seated as if I came at the last minute! Spacing between tables was awful! Noted on reservation we were celebrating anniversary & birthday and nothing acknowledged!

We thorougly enjoyed my son's birthday lunch at Galeto. He is a meat lover, as is his friend who came with us. and has wanted to try a Brazilian Steakhouse for some time. I am less of a meat person but was surprised that I loved all of the meats as well. We also loved the chauterie table if that's what it is called. Everything was quite delicious, particularly the Brazilian black beans and the salads.

The food was great. However service was lacking. We were being served even after saying no while our cards were faced to the red side. We finally figured out that they were closing the grill but it made for a bad dinning experience. On open table they had reservations after our dining time but when we got there the were closing in 30 minutes. Was not happy about that. Will not be recommending to anyone. I have been to Brazilian steak houses and had a wonderful time but I was highly dissatisfied this go around.

1) Our waitress was top-notch.

2) The selection of meats is fantastic; but most are overly salty. Meats are brought to the table not unlike dim-sum. And yet, we had to ask for some of the selections since they never made it to our table on their own/through the rounds.

3) The "additionals" (bisque, salad, vegetables, mussels, etc.) all were delicious, but the buffet presentation wasn't as nice or well-kept as we expected.

Just what you want and expect from a Brazilian steakhouse. The drinks were delicious, staff incredibly friendly (many who spoke in Portuguese and could explain the meat cuts and way it's prepared), and of course, delicious food. It was a great experience and next time I'm in town, I'll want to check it out again.

We had a family dinner for 8 that included one vegetarian and one person on the keto diet. I am happy to everyone was satisfied and really enjoyed their meals. The food was fresh, flavorful, and delicious. The buffet presentation foreshadowed the culinary enjoyment we were all about to experience. Thank you.

Food and service were very good but a little too pricey. I would go more often if it was more reasonable. I'm just a petite 5-foot woman, not a line-backer.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. This was his only request for his special day. He said, "babe, I want to go to that steak place for my birthday." He loves this place as I also brought him here for Father's day a few years ago. The staff is very attentive and nice. The salad bar is to die for and is very impressive for a foodie like me.

We went for our Wedding Anniversary and it was a great night. The servers were very attentive and was very kind.

The food was great as well. Some red meats were a little to red for my wife but for me it was perfect. All the food were perfectly seasoned and not overly salty.

I would and will be back again

Overall we felt the price did not reflect the quality and experience. The shrimp were rubbery, chicken from salad bar was tough. So the overall feeling was that the salad bar was just ok and the meats were ok. But for over 50 bucks per head I would expect excellent!

The food here was pretty good but when o walked into the restaurant there was no one at the front desk to greet me so I just stood there for a good 10 minutes until someone finally came and asked me how many in my party. Once we were seated our waiter came fast but her voice was so small and the place was so loud I couldn’t hear her explain the instructions. The drinks were great! I would come back just for the drinks because they were strong with a good flavor.

The service was great, our server Hortencia was very attentive to our needs. The reason I gave it only 4 stars is because the selection was not much. Basic Brazilian food was there like the Feojada, farofa, chimichurri sauce, but I expected that there was soup. Well I guess since the price is half of that of dinner, they will not put much selection for lunc. Overall, the food was good, meat selection was good.

The service was okay with repeated request for a box and check. The BBQ meats were quite good but not too many varieties.
