Galpao Gaucho Brazilian Steakhouse - Cupertino
We booked this restaurant for a birthday celebration based on all the positive reviews. While the food was OK (Nothing exceptional) and the service was attentive, we did not appreciate all the over selling. In particular we were offered tequila shots numerous times and we accepted in the end, not knowing that the shots were $40 a piece until we got the bill. If you are going to offer a shot and keep coming to the table until one caves, you should at least mention the price! I took 2 stars for the lack of transparency which we certainly didn't appreciate. Also I would not rate this restaurant a fine dining experience. It is just an average meat eaters place.
Great time! We stayed and hung out for nearly 4 hours!! Zero pressure! Fabulous
Very attentive!! Awesome food! Best Brazilian Steakhouse compared to others that we have experienced. They always keep you full with many refills. Sing Happy Birthday. Love how it’s really roomy and not crowded. Great hygiene practices.
Me and my wife and our friend had a bad stomach ache after it ruined our anniversary night
They offer ZERO outdoor seating at the Cupertino location. Additionally, while some of the tables are spaced out fairly well, others -- particularly those on the walking path from the front to the rear of the main seating area -- ARE NOT socially distanced from where you walk. If you are trying to stay extra COVID-19 safe, or are a germaphobe in general, this is not a restaurant you want to go to.
Amazing place. From food to service. I’ve been in a few Brazilian Steak House and this one is the best one I’ve been. Our server Alfredo was a very humble guy and very attentive. Definitely will be coming back.
Great service! Great foods! I love that they have those meat fats on those meats. Very attentive crew! Feels great!
Wonderful experience! Each of the meats were cooked to perfection! My top favorites where the beef rib and the filet mignon wrapped in bacon. The prawns is a good addition to the menu. The salad bar is so good that you need to control yourself not to have too much otherwise you will not have room for the meats.
The service as always was top notch; our server, Nui, was very attentive and pleasant.
We had an amazing experience from the moment we got into the restaurant. Everyone was so friendly but Aline stood out from the rest. She made sure at all times that we were happy with the food and that we were having a good time. All the meat cuts and the food from the salad bar were amazing and the caipirinha Aline made for me made me feel like I was in Brazil. Highly recommended!
Excellent food quality and amazing service.
I love this place honestly. The service has always been top tier the staff is so friendly they laugh with us and it’s all a good time. The food is amazing seasoned and cooked to perfection. Not to mention the safety measures they have in place were the best I’ve seen while dining indoors anywhere and it didn’t take away from the experience. I will definitely treat myself here again and recommend to anyone.
Outstanding service and food as always! I was so excited for their reopening during this pandemic and I’m so impressed with the quality!
From the beginning to end the way Galpao handled this pandemic and ensuring everyone’s safety was quite delightful. I appreciated each and every single employees care and attention to our meal as my husband and I was having our anniversary meal for the first time during this pandemic. We will highly refer all our family, friends and colleagues.
Awesome service. Very good COVID protocols and safety measures.
Excellent food and service. Would definitely come back
Always an outstanding experience but the fact that they could open with only 2 days notice after being shut down for nearly a year and deliver an exceptional experience moves this place into the category of legend!
John was a great waiter!
This is the best Brazilian steakhouse in the Bay Area. It puts Fogo to shame! The staff are extremely knowledgeable, pay attention to what you like and how you like it cooked, keep water glasses full, and check in often to see if there is anything you need. The food is excellent and the ambiance is warm and inviting. Highly recommend!
Best place for special occasions In my opinion. Looking forward to coming back.
Amazing service and food. I can't say enough good stuff about this place. You won't go hungry and you won't have to wait for someone to come by offering you a new meat choice.
The food and the services was great!! We enjoyed the variety of meat they offered.
I loved it as always.
Absolutely flawless. Amazing service and food. No complaints!!!
Excellent service and great first impression! I can't wait until next time!!!
Food was delicious as always. However, since the restaurant changed their entrance the energy seems a bit more chaotic as it seems like you’re now walking through more dining space. The salad bar is smaller and they didn’t have as many options as they used to. The food was delicious and service was friendly.
Great food, good attentive employees and a nice place in my community. Love it!
Amazing experience. Awesome service. Will totally go back.
Absolutely wonderful! Definitely classy and very tasteful in every sense of the expression. Management made me feel right at home and were very attentive to helping me set up for my party from blowing up balloons to making my guests feel like family. They knew exactly how to help and didn't wait to be asked instead took initiative. I have never had such great service and because of that I will be coming back very soon and recommending it to all my friends who are looking for a real quality experience!
It was good food, fast, friendly service. And the price was way better than Fogo De Chao.
A very nice place to eat. The salad bar is great. Lots of choice. And the meat selection was fabulous. All-you-can-eat by the looks of it. If you have a big appetite this is the place to go.
This is my fourth time coming here. The staff recognized us the second we were seated lol! What can I say, I love myself some amazing BRAZILIAN STEAKHOUSE! This place is second to none on everything. I’ve been to the San Mateo, Palo Alto locations and they simply do not compare. If you’re looking for an amazing steakhouse then look no further. Definitely will be coming back!!
Excellent place to celebrate a special occasion
Best Brazilian steakhouse I've been to yet. The food was excellent. Recommend not necessarily to eat right at opening -- the constant stream of meats was overwhelming since tables haven't been seated yet -- otherwise, just be good at saying no. ha. They'll be back. Also -- that roasted cinnamon pineapple was delicious!
Absolutely fantastic experience in every way possible! Excellent meats, sides, and service!
I was celebrating my birthday lunch with friends. All of the staff was very very attentive and constantly checked on our party. All of the food was great! I wish I could have tried all of the meats, but was only able to try half because I was already full, but I will be back in the future.
