Terrible experience. They are not following any type of COVID protocol. When we got there everyone was crowded around the hostess stand. The hostess didn’t have a list of reservations, couldn’t keep track of who got there first. They were allowing people and children to sit at empty tables that were already set up with exposed glasses, plates, and silverware. No one sanitized the tables after guests were at them. As tables were becoming available people were escorted to an elevator that was never sanitized. After waiting for about 30 minutes to be seating and after witnessing everything mentioned, my husband and I left. I will never recommend or return to this restaurant.

Went for my boyfriend’s birthday and we were both beyond impressed with our dining experience. I do suggest not filling up at the salad bar right away! They have a wonderful selection, but start small. You can always go back for more. We will certainly be going back in the future.

Down side ...had 0 medium well to well beef. Chicken was the only thing I could eat outside of that because I was allergic to shrimp. $17 a shot for patron was way over priced. No one came around with grilled pineapple u til after we were ready to leave. Salad bar was great.

Food was very good and service very good. Just Be aware they approach the table with tequila the second you sit down and multiple dessert liquors in shot glasses like its FREE and then ChARGE you $25 a SHOT. When you question it they give you a discount card for the next time you cone on as if it justifies it. Very disappointing. Its buffet style so it gets Confusing.

In comparing the food/dining experience at Galpao Gaucho Brazilian Steakhouse to other Brazilian steakhouses, I do not feel the salad/side selections at Galpao Gaucho measure up to other steakhouses. Additionally, I do not feel the quality/selection of the meats measure up either. The ambience was nice, the wait staff were pleasant, but I would not elect to dine again at Galpao Gaucho Brazilian Steakhouse.

From the time we walked in until the moment we left, we were treated as their only customer. The wait, bar and management was excellent. The food was beyond expectation. I would definitely recommend to anyone go back and plan to with friends and family.

We liked the elegant modern décor feel of this place. Unfortunately, our dining experience was very disappointing. A caveat - this review is for the a la carte menu. The boneless ribeye had no seasoning or flavor. The lamb chops were not cooked to order (too rare). A second batch (cooked to order) was delicious. The grilled salmon was cooked perfectly. Everyone loved the superb mashed potatoes . Service was well timed and friendly amongst the rotating servers but our principal server while very polite appeared to be very uninformed. I would return to try the Full Experience menu if in the Charleston area again,

Un Restaurant Top entre los Top de Charleston.
El bar de ensaladas es una maravilla y las carnes que sirven, de buenísima calidad, acompañados de una excelente bodega de buenos vinos.
El compromiso con la cultura de buen servicio y buenos cortes de carne al estilo brasileño, está fuera de toda duda. El maestro Mario y su staff, son insuperables a la hora del buen trato. ¡Bravo!, ¡Bravo! Cuenten desde ya con un cliente de por vida.

Only complaint is that gentlemen with Rodízio service came around just a bit too much. It was a little distracting during our conversations.

We have been to several Brazilian steak houses on the East and west coasts and Galpao Gaucho is by far our favorite. The food is always good, especially the roasted pineapple and the cheese with spicy honey. However, what’s makes Galpao Gaucho special is the attentive service and the overwhelming desire by the management team for guests to enjoy their time and food.

This restaurant is absolutely fabulous. The food was exquisite & the service was impeccable! I would recommend Galpao Gaucho for a date night or any special occasion. The meat selection & the salad bar had a lot of variety and there wasn’t one item that disappointed! They also offer flaming coffee cocktails for an after dinner treat!!!

Always a fantastic experience. Service is great. The staff is very attentive to anything you need. The food is amazing, especially the picanha. I highly recommend this. I tell everyone about it. We have also had their Sunday brunch and it was just as outstanding.

Just go and don’t give it a second thought... you won’t be disappointed.
