    First, the staff is very friendly and inviting. We stopped in earlier in the day just to get a feel of the place so we could decide whether or not to try it out. We liked the ambience and the feel of the place, plus the staff was wonderfully welcoming. We made reservations right away. When we arrived for dinner, They remembered us from earlier and again were treated well. The food was great. Some of the meats were not hot enough, but still tasty. The sides were wonderful especially the garlic mash. The dining was completely full and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. The old building led to a lot of the great ambience, but it might need a little TLC. Nothing a fresh paint job would fix. (On the interior) would i recommend? Yes indeed.

    A VERY expensive place to eat if you are not very hungry! Was a waste of money as 2 of our kids ate about $10 worth of food collectively. The waiter wouldn’t let me take their portion home. At $60 per person, we felt like we didn’t get our money worth for our family of 4. Also, the food came out so fast it was overwhelming. We literally had food in our mouth and someone asking if we want to the next thing that came out. It was so rushed I couldn’t savor and enjoy. We will not return.

    Not super impressed. Even with the restaurant week discount, this place felt overpriced. They also charged us for water ($6 a liter) without telling us they would be doing so it asking if we wanted new bottles. They just kept bringing them and taking them away and so we had no idea if the count they gave us at the end was correct. The salad bar was very hit or miss. Some stuff was really tasty (cheese, mango salad) others were really meh (deviled eggs, salad dressings). There were also no crackers or bread other than the tiny cheese rolls to put the cheeses and salads on. Everyone enjoyed the 2nd course.

    True Brazilian churracaria or BBQ, full “rodizio” I.e. all you can eat of the beef and other meat cuts including the famous picanha. The buffet is fresh and well supplied with a wide choice of starters. When you turn you card “green”, the festival starts and you have to manage the ballet of servers and savors presented to you at the table. The service is very professional and personalized. The care for you dinner experience genuine. Amazingly, despite huge tables of entire families and friends celebrating birthdays, the noise level was perfectly acceptable. Congratulations to Edson and the team to bring an authentic Brazilian bbq experience to the heart of Charleston.

    Price was much higher than expected, and certainly not up to par with the service. We spent thirty minutes from asking for the check to signing the check. Food was ok at best.

    Best Brazilian Steakhouse I've ever been to. Food was absolutely amazing and the entire staff exceeded my expectations. They were very attentive and made me feel like a valued customer. While I live 6 hours away, I would definitely drive back just to eat here again.

    Love how they constantly bring out meat, it never stops. Great selection and quality too. Don’t come here for the ambiance, you’ll be squished in a table next to others and it gets a little warm on the first floor. Great place to go for non-stop high quality meat.

    This was my first time in Charleston, SC. My husband and I made a reservation to go to Galpao Gaucho Brazilian Steakhouse for my birthday. The place was exquisite from the entry way to the lighting and floral decor. The food was soooo delicious . Our server was very pleasant and efficient to our every needs. I will definitely go again the next time we visit Charleston, SC

    A complete must for your Charleston dinner. We have visited the city many times and somehow missed this restaurant. We got it right this past weekend. My children and husband loved it. The food was perfect and wee ate till we no longer could. Then, somehow, my children managed to fit in desert. I did steal a bite off of their plates. We will be back on our next trip we take to Charleston. The service and food are over the top. On a 1-5 star rating I give them a 10! **********

    This is the perfect spot for your favorite carnivores! My meat eaters absolutely loved the variety of meats available for them to pick from; their absolute favorite was the spicy picanha. I’m a gluten-free free pescatarian so I ate from the salad bar which had plenty of options for me to choose from. Let’s talk about dessert. There were plenty of dessert options so three of us chose a different dessert so we can try each others dessert. We ordered the traditional Brazilian flan, the tres leche cake and the papaya cream, all three were delicious!!

    Service was awful. The waitress never smiled once and as some of us were eating and some were finished , she started asking if she could take our plates. I thought that was rude. She also brought the check as one and we asked to split it and initially ste said she couldn’t until we insisted that it wasn’t fair to put a $700 bill on one person. Not all of the advertised meat was brought around to our table. Salad bar was the best part. We were a party of 7 last night but not one of us would go back. It was awful.
