The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. We have been to many other Brazilian Steakhouse’s in the area and this is now our favorite. This was our second visit and we brought friends with us and they were very impressed and also plan to return in the future.

We love this place! We're so glad that they opened a Brazilian steak house so close to us. Previously I'd lamented that they didn't have the cinnamon pineapple on the menu, and was thrilled to see that they have it now. We book most of our special occasion dinners here and would highly recommend it.

Service was quick and servers were cheerful and enthusiastic. Filled my plate nonstop. Full within 30 minutes, so had to turn over my card just to catch up eating.

My wife and I have been to many Brazilian Steakhouses, but Galpao Gaucho is the Best of the Best! Everything was exceptional, seating, service and food. We took our grandson, age 23, with us for lunch. He too is a Brazilian Steakhouse regular and he has now found a new favorite. We live in Redwood City and the short drive to Cupertino is well worth it. We would highly recommend this restaurant to all our friends and family. We will be back!

I've been to other Brazilian steakhouses that have more flavor in the meat. I don't think it's worth what I paid for but the service was great.

I first came to this location last when they had first opened and it was great. I had an even better experience this time because there were more staff so more food was coming up faster and therefore I was able to really see how well they worked. The food was just as delicious and well prepared as the first time and the staff were very friendly and super accommodating.

Hands down the best Brazilian steakhouse we've been to. Never had to wait for or ask for anything. We just visited Fogo de Chao and this was a completely different experience. If you haven't tried it, you won't go anywhere else afterwards.

We had a small family celebration and decided to checkout Galpão Gaucho. We were not disappointed! Food was very good. The salad bar had a great variety, including gluten free options. The meat servers were frequent and had a good variety of meats. One server asked what our favorites were and quickly came by with it. We had a wonderful time and look forward to going again!

With wonderful food, and great attention to detail, I love this place. It's my go-to for a very nice meal when guests come to town that won't take forever, and has plenty for everyone to eat. I've never been disappointed.

The food in general is amazing, my surprise is the dessert.
A restaurant that specializes in meat (and they really knows what they’re doing) to have such a perfect way to close your meal, that’s a great surprise and I am thankful for the experience.
I’ve been there several times, always a pleasure.

We had an excellent experience. The salads were fresh with lots of choices. We were advised to go easy to avoid getting stuffed, and that was the best advice :-) The meat cuts were just as promised and allowed for different choices from rare to well done. We were 4, chose 2 desserts (mouse & flan) - we should have settled for only 1... generous portions! We chose to avoid alchohol. Total, including tip $330

This is our third visit to Galpao, and the food is consistently good. There were a few changes to the salad bar, and it was fun to try new items. Our only complaint is that the gauchos come so quickly with the meats, it feels like you're being bombarded. It's impossible to keep up, and hard to enjoy a leisurely meal. I wish they would slow down a little. That being said, the table service (drink refills, taking requests for certain meats/cuts) was very good, and it was still a great meal. We'll likely go back another time.

Simply Brilliant!
Big fan!

IMHO the best Churrascaria in the South Bay as of this review. On my first visit I did not partake in the salad bar eats and simply skipped to the meats, my buddy and I had a spectacular dining experience. Service was spot on, we were frequently checked upon, glasses of water and wine were regularly filled and clean plates were regularly on offer as well.

What I thoroughly enjoyed about my carnivore experience; The meats were not overly salty like say...at a certain other Churrascaria in Santana Row...they were just perfect here.

My second visit was a mirror of the first one, except this time I made it out to the salad bar! I'm so glad to report there was nothing disappointing here either. The Salmon, the Bacon, the Asparagus and the Deli Meats were all Brilliant!

I'll be back!

This is by far the best Brazilian steakhouse in the Bay Area. The food is suberp, not just the meats but also the salad bar which includes much more than just salad. What makes this place special, however, is the friendly and competent service staff. Everyone, including the management, makes you feel welcome and special. They are very attentive.

I took my husband and child for Fathers Day celebration. We made a reservation for 7:15pm. We got there and noticed a line in and out the door. We figured, "no problem, we have a reservation!" Unfortunately, that was not the case. We were asked to wait 15 min. until they cleared out the big groups. Once 15min went by, it seemed they had forgotten about us, so I went up and asked again "how much longer"; we were asked to wait another 15min, apparently they had overbooked. As we waited, it looked like they were sitting all big groups first, 6,5,4 and then smaller groups of 3,2. We ended up waiting 40min. in total...with a reservation. Once they sat us down, the servers were attentive, and food was "ok". I recall the food and meats being delicious! We didn't feel this was the case this time around. Some of the meats seemed under cooked. Overall, I chalk it up to an over crowded restaurant and definitely poor reservation management.
