Excellent Brazilian steakhouse. I felt like I was in food heaven. The restaurant is smaller and more intimate then some of the other Brazilian Steakhouses, so the salad bar is smaller but it is still offers an amazing variety. This is an amazing restaurant. The meats are delicious and the service was outstanding. Highly recommend for a date night!

I would never recommend anyone here. No food at the salad bar. It took 4 servers to finally bring me a filet mignon. And be careful complaint to your significant other at the bar of how bad the service was bc you’ll get insulted by the bartender homegirl. That got multiple discount to be able to afford a 2 dessert & drinks. Insulted infront of my son with trash & vulgar language. Bartender did nothing to diffuse the situation. Toilet where full of toilet paper until I complained. The whole experience was money thrown to the trash. I feel sorry for the manger that apologized for everything, but I should have also had a discount from homegirl bartender. Avoid at all cost

The service was pretty bad and slow. Server seemed like it was her first night at work. Food choices in the salad bar are pretty slim. Ambience isn’t very inviting. You’re better off at Texas de Brazil or fogo

Most of the meat was awesome...house special is the best cut on the menu. Salmon...needs a lot of work!! It was mostly fat and the passion fruit mayonaise was just awful!! Salad bar was outstanding!!

We went here last year for Thanksgiving and again this year. It has become a family tradition. Wonderful experience and you can hear people at your table because it is not noisy. Love the ambiance, food wonderful, service exceptional.

Took my friends there for dinner, it wasn’t busy, it looks like nobody cares about service, meats were bad cooked, the service was bad, we had to ask several times for clean plates, because they were just ignoring us, service was so bad never feel like that at another place, sometimes service is bad, but food good, that one was my luck, bad food, bad customer service, and the bill $240 dollars for mediocre uncooked bloody meat. I’m sorry but sometimes reviews helps the business to do better

The young waiter, Devon, was very attentive and kept our wine and water glasses full. The manager approached him and scolded him about something but that is something that needs to be handled away from the customers and not in the dining area.

We have dined at several of these themed restraunts and found Galpao as good as can be. We enjoyed the size of the venue as much as the food. This is not a large room and is more friendly and the service was just about right. Well balanced service and the food was just phenomenal. We would now consider Galpao Gaucho over the others we would normally chose. The others were also good, but this Galpao was just a more friendly and enjoyable experience. Probably a bit more family atmosphere? We will be back as soon as we are back in San Antonio. God Bless

The staff was so courteous to us as we entered. There was so much great food and the meats were delightful. I really liked their selection of different aged cheeses to mix with the food at the salad bar. The wine was excellent.

My wife and I had a GREAT meal and service experience! The staff was so kind and attentive even with food allergies. They informed us of what foods we could and could not eat, and kept bringing the meats we loved! The meats were hot out of the kitchen not warm or tough. Seasoned perfect, and choices of rare med rare and well done were ALL tasty and tender! We've been to many Brazilian steak places, which have lost the original service and attention to detail they once had, but this place is GREAT! Wish they had one in Chicago!

The service was amazing, very attentive. It’s a bit loud - so sometimes it’s hard to hear what they’re saying when they walk by with the meat. Sadly, I thought the food was very salty. It was sooo good, but it was getting difficult to ignore towards the end of dinner. I had to take a bite of the plantain with each bite to cancel out the saltiness. I tried the Pisco Sour, pretty disappointed. I could BARELY taste the Pisco, not worth it if I’m drinking juice. Overall, don’t think I’ll go back only because it was salty as hell.

We went for lunch, and the restaurant wasn't very crowded. But the amount of meats and the service were superb. They didn't skimp just because there weren't many customers. Amazing level of service, and the food was fantastic! Highly recommend.

Tried several local Brazilian Steakhouses , but this one is my favorite by far!! Not only is the meat fantastic, but the grilled pineapple adds that extra tropical flavor. Also, the servers aren’t pushy , very respectable of your time. You feel at home and not rushed to get full right away & leave. Will definitely come back to my new Brazilian Steak house soon ❣️

A bit pricey to be able to enjoy more than once, maybe twice a year. Great service though; all were friendly, helpful and professional. Only issue with food at time was getting some of the red-meats cooked to at least medium...most of it was MR or oven rare; however, on one occasion the service actually brought a piece of steak back to the cooks and returned it cooked to order. Well done...the server, not the steak...it was a perfect medium.

We have been to a few Brazilian steakhouses. This was very nice The salad bar was well done and had a good variety, The meat selections and preparation were wonderful. The service was generally above and beyond what we have gotten at other places. They were very attentive, offered a clean plate a couple of times. Kept water and wine glasses filled, and frequently but unobtrusively checked on how we were doing.
