Great staff and so many options other than meat! We were a party of 10 for my dads bday and we had a great time. The food was high quality and very tasty! Best Brazilian steakhouse in the area!

The best Brazilian steakhouse in Contra Costa County. Excellent food selections from appetizers to meats. Service was superb! All employees were professional takes care of every single customer from management level to bus boys. None of the employees were hanging out together to talk like you see at other restaurants. Everyone was attending to all the customers from management to bus boys. Every meat had great flavor (sirloin, filet mignon, rib eye, chicken, prawns, salmon, pork ribs, you name it. You will be the one giving up because they will not stop feeding you. They are there to please. I’m so glad they survived the pandemic. We are loyal customers from the day they opened. Love this place!!!❤️❤️❤️👏👏👏😋😋😋

Make sure you are hungry. A few of the meats were overcooked. Otherwise the salad bar was fantastic. But be careful don't overdo it at the salad bar. Need room for the meats

This was my first time here and it was absolutely delicious! The staff was extremely attentive for the first half of the meal, people constantly checking on us, refilling our drinks, asking if we wanted any specific meats brought over. The food was AMAZING! Love how much variety there was. I did notice the staff did not come around as much at the end and it took a while to get our check, but besides that this experience was amazing. Will definitely be back!

We always have an amazing experience at Galpao. The best Brazilian spot we have found. You never have to wait for new meats as they are always coming around. Even asked us if there was anything special we wanted meat wise a few different times. The minute your drink is a little gone you’re getting a refill. We love coming here, and will continue to be our number 1 spot.

Attentive service with smiling friendly faces behind the masks. The staff remembered our table's preferences and would swing by just to check if anything else was needed. Busy but attentive and courteous to our needs. We've dined at churascarias many times in Brazil and the Galpao Gaucho in Walnut Creek food, ambiance, staff and service is like having a meal in Sao Paolo, Porto Alegre or Rio without the plane ticket. Great dining experience.

For Mother’s Day they did not enforce social distancing. It’s still a pandemic and the tables were not even 6ft apart. As a normal sized person I had to even squeeze through tables to get to ours.
Other than their lack of social distancing everything was normal and tasted great.

The service was outstanding and our server made a wonderful recommendations with the beverages. I wish I could give the server a shout out but her name isn't on the receipt. Whomever had table 18 on 5/8 at 6pm - you are one of the best servers I've ever had. Thank you so much!

Our server was helpful and kind, and we even got a dessert on the house. When we requested some food and it didn’t come out she quickly went to the kitchen to check on it. It was a weeknight just as indoor dining was opening up so it wasn’t very busy. I can imagine it could get a little loud in there, though.

My husband & I love Galpao Gaucho! We come here for every special occasion with our family and for dates. The food is delicious, the staff works together so well…like clockwork we love it! The environment is perfect if you want to relax with a significant other, celebrate with drinks amongst friends/family or just sneak away to treat yourself.

Over rated
Over priced

mediocre salad bar
medium/low grade steak, over seasoned.

They give you two sides: a banana, and watery mashed potato’s.

Trust me, go to a real steak house instead.

Didn’t like the idea of a salad bar buffet, but since masks are required and gloves are worn, we felt a little bit better. Salad bar was nothing special, but it was good. The various meats were very tender and the servers were all very friendly. Good place for entertaining guests from out of town, or special occasions.

First time at this place and the meats were amazing! Salad bar was a bit small compared to other Brazilian Steakhouses I’ve been to, but overall enjoyed the food. Loved the safety precautions they have in place here.

Did not get all the meats considering not too much people dining in. We have to ask for it, and kept asking for it.
