I would be very careful to review the charges on your bill, especially if you are in a party of say 6 or more. They charged us for two beverages, no one ordered nor received. Other than that, and the noise level, I have to say the food servers were very good, and the meat was good. The salad bar was alright, but not everyone using it was careful with their hygiene so I felt uncomfortable, given our current health crisis.

Lovely dinner. Only negative thing….. we made reservations through Open table but the restaurant didn’t show that we were there so we have a negative standing with Open table now. We were there. Spent 226.00. Lovely dinner. Food was amazing. Service was over the top. Great table. NO MASKS!

Great place and very typical of a Brazilian Steakhouse. Quality and variety of meat is very good and you can order to your cooking preference. Very good selection of sides, in case you want any... I always save my space for meat...

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.
