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 bar 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.

Drinks were awesome and the food. There were some food items I wanted to try that didn't come out. Maybe next time.

The Sirloi n Steak was delicious. It was my favorite. My Wife enjoyed the chicken they offered. I think they need to offer a larger selection of side dishes.
Other than that everything was nice, the employees were all nice, atmosphere is nice, music is nice and the food was great.

We went for lunch on a Sunday afternoon and service was lacking. We sat at the table for 5-10 mins with no server greeting us. Once we decided to just go up to the buffet to start, the bartender stopped us in the middle of the room to take our drink order. Most meats were delicious, but the salad bar was minimal. We won’t go back.

So delicious. Ive veen to espetus in sf, but not in about 6 years or so. I like that this one is much roomier and closer to home. Seems like your salad bar had much more to choose from. Wouldve loved the warm pineapple on the stick tho like they do there.

This was a first for my boyfriend and I. We have both heard good things about Brazilian Steakhouses but this was our first time to one, this one was very nice, quaint, romantic and yummy! The service was perfect, the food was delicious...I didn't realize there would be SO MUCH other food besides the meat. I only went up once to try the antipasto bar. I was so full I didn't get a chance to eat more. I wasn't able to try all the meat either. I only wished they spoke louder when they came to the table to offer the meat. I had to ask every time what it was (only because I didn't want the lamb) other than that we had an AWESOME time and will definitely be back. We have already bragged to our friends and told them it's a must!!

I've been to the major Brazilian Steakhouse chain restaurants and this one surpasses them all. Not only was the service amazing, there was every cut of meat imaginable. The food was amazing and it was worth every penny. We will be returning.

Went there for Valentine's day before concert and just loved all the food. Everything was delicious. Ambiance was romantic. Noise level was great so we could hear each other talk. The waitress was very attentive to us. There is nothing negative I can say about our experience there. We are definitely going again.

We were very pleased with your salad bar's outstanding selections and the quantity of these delights. Of course, your multiple meats, served to our specifications, were all delicious. It was super that we were able to have so much variety in meats in small volumes, rather than as a single type of meat as a full entree. The desserts were outstanding, also, as was the service. Thank you very much for a delightful Valentine's Day dinner date for a couple married 46 years!

I am a person who enjoys good food..I like for each and every thing on my plate to have it's own flavor. I was brought UP in a family of great cooks. I LOVE SEASONINGS. I was able to taste all of these great flavors in MY MOUTH.. I was there for lunch on Valentines Day. We really enjoyed everything, But I did feel rushed. Not enough time to just sit and savour. I would like to come back for DINNER or SUNDAY. More options and HOPEFULY morE TIME.

SINCERE THANKS

A group of 7 friends decided to go to Galetos for a new dining experience at a Brazilian Steakhouse. It was fun and lively. The wait staff went way beyond the call of duty. The meats were tasty ( although the filet mignon never made it to our table). The black beans and Brazilian rice were exceptional. Definitely we had a lot of great food and great conversation and loud laughter.. We were there for about 3hours. The only thing is the cost. We didn’t realize regular beverages were extra and so were desserts. The tab came to 80 dollars per person. However, I would recommend it as a one time dining experience.

Definitely a local MUST GO! If you live in Oakland, Ca or near and you have not been to Gelato yet, definitely make an effort and try it out! Great for anniversaries, graduations, birthdays, etc! PS- Best creme brûlée I've ever had!

The meat was very good, but some cuts were on the salty side. The service was friendly and efficient. Loved the cheesy bread and fried banana extras. The salad bar is basic but a great compliment to the meats.

We were celebrating a birthday, so were 3 other families. It was pretty busy on Saturday and reservations is probably best. We started with cheese bread and salad from the great salad bar, which is my favorite! We then started on the amazing meats that are walked around to your table. Lot's of great choices and selection of meats including chicken and lamb. It's about $50 dollars a plate but I think it's a good value because it's all you can eat dinner

We are frequent visitors and have never been disappointed. The meat selections are great and very flavorful. The buffet could have a bit more items but still worth the money. The service is great, as everyone is very attentive to the tables. The fried polenta fries are to die for. Definitely worth the visit.

Been dying for Brazilian Steak for a long time. Location is closest to my home. We did not want to drive all the way to the City or San Jose for the same kind of food. 5 different cuts of meat were enough but we never got our lamb! 1st round chicken tights were delicious and moist, 2nd round was very dry. Maybe because the restaurant was only 1/2 full and the meat was sitting too long on the grill.

Preamble: Both my wife and I are carnivores who love a great bbq/grill experience. Plus, we never thought we would be out-meated. Safe to say, we didn't leave hungry. First off, the staff is exemplary, from greeting us at the door, explaining how the dinner will proceed, checking on us during the dinner, keeping our glasses full (water and wine). My wife and niece shared wine and I had a top tier Long Island - super good and potent. Then the meat came, one spit after another, we were probably visited 12 times during the meal. All the meat was good (the chicken was a bit dry) and what we found was that altho the flavor was great all around, it was the different textures of the meat that stood out. We've never experienced such a fine, detailed journey through skirt stake and filet mignon (over favorites), to rib eye and beef rib, top sirloin and several more. Oh, the "salad" bar had the best salmon and prosciutto along with mixed greens and great black beans. We are heading back for our birthdays - can't wait!

Great experience at Galeto. My son picked brazilian steakhouse for his 12th bday dinner; being vegetarian I wasn't familiar with any. So picked Galeto on opentable and we were not disappointed. The salad bar was fantastic; I had plenty of options and enjoyed them all. The carnivores in the group loved the various meats. Cocktail was very tasty (gin and ginger, highly recommend). The servers and host were friendly and we felt very well taken care of.

Lovey ambiance, lovely staff, lovely restaurant.

This place was a real surprise. A different dining experience from the usual multiple menu items with a standard program of salads/side dish buffet bar and an array of table delivered grilled meats sliced at the table for each diner. The rib eye steak was my favorite, succulent, juicy and cooked to perfection. A bit pricey but worth it for special occasions.

Galeto has incredible food and great service. The cost is relatively high so it is not an "everyday" restaurant but it is definitely a "destination" restaurant. The wine list is good with mostly California selections from the Napa Valley and offers pairing suggestions for the cuisine. The food is beyond amazing and the servers will continue to bring meat selections to your table until you have had your fill.

My wife and I went there for our first date night in a long time and by the time we left, we realized we had been there for over three hours talking and enjoying the food. There was no rush from the staff for us to leave when we had finished eating. We were allowed to enjoy our wine and talk without feeling like they wanted our table for other customers. That relaxed atmosphere alone was worth the cost of the meal.
