Food is endless amounts and extremely tasty. Only thing was our drinks were 15 minutes late and the waitstaff was fabulous except for a couple who could not understand many words of English other than Thank you and giving a thumbs up or down sign. But overall we had a blast and would definitely go back! Great atmosphere and again whether its the salads, fruits, vegetables, cheeses or of course the MEATs!

The food and the service was top notch. The grilled pineapple at the end was the best. Anyone that is a fan of Brazilian bbq won’t be disappointed.

The restaurant's ambience was very cabin indoorsy and intimate. The servers were always present with a wise assortment of carved meats and other delicacies. The salad bar had various vegetables even smoked salmon. (which is my personal favorite) The servers were always present to assist us in whatever we needed. The food is pricey (about $50-$55 a pop) but that is a minor gripe. I had no problem plunking down for meats that tender and juicy. You will not walk away thinking you got short changed.

I like the place overall and my favorite is cheese bread balls ,chicken soup and dessert! Some meat seemed a little salty. And service at times felt like you were being rushed out. But we were both so full after dinner, we ended up not being able to go to dance club after.

My experience at Galpao Gaucho Brazilian Steakhouse was beyond my expectations. The salad bar was excellent with so many different choices that do not normally exist at most "normal" salad bars. All of the choices were fresh and beautifully presented. I highly recommend the Brazilian Steakhouse for an outstanding dining experience. Also, the servicers were very attentive and not obtrusive. I cannot wait to go back for another meal.

After a lengthy friendly chat with the GM of the restaurant after we were finished with our meal the GM asked if we would like some Port. We took that as a gesture of friendship and accepted his offer...only to discover $30 added to our bill as a result. I’m glad we didn’t accept his offer for dessert!

I made Reservations for my daughter’s birthday and ended up spending 1.5 hrs waiting for a table. I brought for minors who are vegetarians and there was no vegetarian price or kids discount. They can’t we like an adult. a lot of the meet was dry this is my third time and my experience wasn’t the best

The salad bar looked great in the pictures on the restaurant's website, but we were disappointed in the salad bar offerings. The advertisements bragged about sushi but there was only 1 type of sushi offered and it wasn't too good. The other salad bar items were just average and seemed old and not very fresh.

The meats were excellent. Great variety, perfectly cooked and extremely good service by the wait staff. We had a new meat offered to us every couple minutes.

Considering the $70 per person price, it wasn't the greatest value and I'm not sure we would return, but it was a decent meal overall.

This was our 3rd time a Galpao. We still come out very satisfied, the staff is AMAZING! The Manager is beyond words THE BEST! Manager is their on the floor assisting his team! We had been placed at the table right by the entrance to have dinner. My husband asked if we could be moved to another table we would wait. Now the waiter seemed a little overwhelmed by how busy they were which is to be expected on Valentines night. He informed us their was no other table. But informed his manager our issue and we were about to give our table to a couple that had been waiting and have dinner somewhere else. The manager asked if we could wait 5 minutes he would have a table ready for us. We did, just before we could sit back down he approached us and had a table ready quick. That right their was service. The entire time my husband and I are having our food I see him walking so fast assisting his team and his guest to the max. Defiantly will be back again! Their food is amazing! A little to much salt on some meat especially the ribs, but everything else so delicious!

Come hungry! The first time I've ever been to this place and didn't know what to expect from this buffet. A real 3 course dinner (2 if you're too full for dessert). 1st course salad bar: I'd say take this one easy! Don't fill up on their great selection of a range of foods from traditional lettuce salads, tomato fresco, green beans, asparagus, etc. Even sushi, rice, and potatoes, aka stuffing to fill you up before the main course: the meats!

2nd / Main course was spectacular! For the price you pay, you get a WIDE range of barbeques from pork sausage, lamb chops, to Ribeyes, bottom sirloin, bacon wrapped chicken, and lots more! Service was table-side, whereas the servers come around the tables and ask if you'd like what they have on a skewer and they cut it for you, where they have a range of rare to well done. Our waiter was generous with his service, always filling up our water and side bread (which by the way I think was Asiago cheese bread, mmmm I couldn't stop). All the meats were very delicious. Again, I wish I wouldn't have filled up so much on the salad bar, because I wanted to try all the meats but ended up stopping.

Overall, for the price you pay, you definitely should take advantage of it by filling up on the meats and skimp on the salad bar. Very good place!

Overall this was a great experience. The service is very good, however as the dining room started to fill up, and it became busier, the service level dropped and we had to ask for several things more than one time. Also, no one ever came by to refill our water even once.
Excellent food, overall great value and good experience.

Wonderful! Tried to come with an appetite, but clearly didn't come with a big enough one.

The salad bar had a wonderful variety to start the evening with, cheese, fruit, veggies, soup, and salad. The sides of plantains and mashed potatoes were wonderful. Then, there was the meat! I truly wish I had been able to eat more. There was so much available, and it tasted wonderful.

The only things that were not completely fantastic were the business, but then, I suppose that's a good thing. It means the restaurant is popular. And the noise. So many people all talking at once. But if you focus on your food, you can almost tune it out.

Looking forward to another trip with a bigger appetite.

The staff is very responsive and friendly. The food is delicious and a big hit with the menfolk. I’m just disappointed because we made a reservation for 6 people a week in advance but we were given a table near the front door in a cramped corner that was not comfortable.

We loved the food here. The servers kept it coming and we good with providing whether you wanted medium or well. Unfortunately the waiters were so nice with us. When we checked in the people at the door weren’t really informative. We were only 3 mins late from our reservation time and they tried to tell us since we weren’t there the next table wouldn’t be available for over 40 mins. We were able to get one sooner thank God but it was right next to the door so it was really cold. When they sat us down the waiter served us water but that was all he did. He didn’t ask us had we been here before or tell us how this works. So we all sat at the table waiting on service when we didn’t know that we were supposed to just go grab plates at the salad bar, come back and flip over the cards at the table to let them know we were ready. We had to figure this out being first timers here. The waiter eventually came back to see if anyone wanted alcohol. I ordered a beer that he never delivered to me so an hour later I cancelled it. There was no apology for him forgetting about it. And two of the other drink orders were wrong but we kept them anyone to avoid having to wait longer. I have to say I’ve had better customer service at Applebee’s compared to this place where we pay top dollar you’d think you’d get great service. At the end of the evening after we’d waited around for the check we asked if he could take a photo for us and he just had this bad attitude as if he didn’t want to do it. If I had to recommend people here I’d tell them the food is excellent but just don’t expect any kind of customer service beyond that.
