Glad to see them almost back to normal. Tables were spaced for distancing. Masks were required for the salad bar and they provided hand sanitizer and gloves. The meat was outstanding as usual- beef ribs, picanha, spicy beef, rib eye, filet mignon, bottom sirloin. They also served chicken, salmon, shrimp, pork ribs, lamb and sausage. One of my favorite restaurants in Napa.

Food was good but on this occasion I was very disappointed to see they were not operating at 50% capacity like they are supposed to while were in the Orange Tier. In fact they were more packed than I’ve ever seen them. (We had prior reservations FYI). Foyer had at least 30 people standing cheek to jowl waiting for tables. Complete pandemonium. I asked the manager about it but he just said “they had a lot of walk ins”. I’m sure they did but they should do like every other responsible restaurant in Napa and tell people it will be a long wait or turn them away at the door. Zero concern for their staff or customers’ health. I won’t be going back.

My wife and I went for our 5th anniversary, amazing experience. Very nice ambience and great service, at no point was my plate empty and everything tasted great. I usually don’t like Chimichurri but Galpao’s was great. They even gave us a complimentary flan dessert just for our anniversary.

Meat, meat, and more meat! If love meat, this is the place for you. Just when you think you had enough, here comes another mouthwatering steak on a stick, perfectly grilled, glistening, moist, tender medium rare cut just for you. Delicious! Come hungry. The sides were good too. Always a great time at Galpao Gaucho!

We always enjoy excellent service! When they refill your chimmichurri sauce bowl before you have to ask...That's attention! They are also really good about keeping the buffet clean and safe for everyone!

My husband and I went with another couple. We wanted to celebrate them a few weeks before their wedding.
We appreciated the friendly and courteous staff. They are really quick to offer you the cuts of meats available. We were often checked on if we needed additional drinks. The salad bar is kept fresh.
Use of disposable gloves, arrows to provide a good flow around the bar were implemented. Overall, we enjoyed our entire experience and definitely recommend for other to go. We know we’ll be going back.

It was Easter Su day and it is our family tradition to celebrate it with family. Last year that tradition was broken because of Covid but it was ok because of safety concerns. This year we were all so excited to celebrate Easter at this restaurant. Very good experience!

Always a pleasure! Today there was salmon, pineapple, chicken heart and cheese which I feel like are not normally offered so that was very exciting!!! We were pleasantly surprised by those additions as well as the service. The service is always impeccable here. You drop a fork and you have a new one before you can even turn your head to ask, you have only one more cheese ball but they come and refill your basket, waters never get empty, etc. just the greatest service! My only piece of advice is maybe asking for the gloves back or having a server come and pick them up as we didn’t know what to do with the disposable gloves you need to use them for the cold bar. There was a trash by the cold bar, but you are still carrying your plate to your table so we had a handful of plastic gloves in our pockets which was weird. Love this place and I always recommend!!

I am a repeat customer to this location specifically. This was the first time going back since COVID and it was a little different. You have to put on individual gloves for the cold bar which i was put off by, but there really isn’t a different way to do it right now is there??? The service and food was amazing as usual. I personally like that tables have to be 6 feet apart because there are less bodies and far less noise than when it is fully packed. Bringing my family to dinner here in a week! If you haven’t been to a Brazilian steakhouse I recommend you try it and GALPAO GAUCHO IN NAPA IS SO GOOD!!!

Great selection of meats, the only way to walk away hungry is if you are a vegetarian, but I do wish they would serve the plantains at the end of my meal (small complaint)

The food has always been good here. Customer service overall is good. My only observation is that some staff carrying the steak wont even have eye contact with you or check your table if a card is turned green.

The place was very dark even in the middle of a bright sunny day. There were lots of waiters around and they checked in a little too often. The food was very good with lots of options however the salmon never made it to my table.

Had reservations for 6pm, didn’t get seated until almost 6:30. Made it a bit uncomfortable since what’s the point of a reservation if your not seated then anyway. The salad bar is well making do because of COVID. Hard to tell someone yes more of that mushroom and not that one. Or that many beans not so little. The food, is always fantastic. You do feel though sometimes that you get slammed and don’t ever get a chance to catch up sometimes. But that’s the nature of all Brazilian style steak houses. Service was top notch!

They have the salad bar open now and they are keeping everything very clean and safe during covid.

Wasn’t sure how COVID was going to be adhered to here. And it wasn’t. They take meat from table to table. In pre-COVID times, acceptable? Maybe. But now.. hell no. Not sure how they are getting away with this still but paying $300+ for a salad bar and no meat is a rip off. Won’t go back and won’t recommend anyone to go there. Truly disappointed. At least our groups company was good.

One of the best Brazilian restaurant we’ve ever tried! Quality of their meats are excellent and not to mention that the service we received was exceptional. We’ll definitely come back even though it was quite a drive from where we live. We highly recommend to check out this restaurant.
