Brazilian Steakhouse
The plains of Southern Brazil are filled with grazing cattle enjoying the vast pastures. These cattle are the source for the famous and centuries old Brazilian “Churrasco” barbecues. It was at these gatherings where Brazilian cowboys or “gauchos” would prepare large pieces of meat and slowly cook them over open flame pits. Our traditional gaucho chefs still follow these traditions to preserve the flavors of each cut of meat.

We feature unlimited tableside service of different cuts of beef, pork, lamb, and chicken. We also feature a gourmet salad bar, and various traditional side dishes to complement the meats.
You can control your service with a small green and red-sided card. The green side tells the gaucho chefs to bring out skewers of sizzling meats to the table while the red signals a stopping point. To re-start service, simply display the green side again.

My first time at Gauchos Do Sul and it was an incredible experience. The food was first class and couldn't fault the staff as they were fully focused on our comfort and evening enjoyment the whole night. I would recommend to anyone to give this place a try you wont regret it.

Beware. Flagrantly violating state rules during covid. Great staff (some of which clearly concerned about no spacing and large tables), good food. Should be reported to the city for gross negligence. Tables 2-3 feet from each other. Tables > 10 people. Management issue apparently.

We looked forward to our first visit to Gaucho du Sol all week and were rewarded with a one-of-a-kind evening of flavor, ambience, and music. It's often said that a restaurant can easily be judged by two things: its coffee and its bread. While I agree that these two simple items are important, my criteria are these two: lighting and music. Setting the mood for a high-end dinner (or any dinner, for that matter) is the bedrock for a successful evening. From the first warm greeting at 'Gaucho' to the inventive cocktails at the friendly bar, we were immersed in an inviting ambience of soft lighting and live music (this at an appropriate volume and with a perfect playlist). Kudos to the servers, who provided scrumptious cuts of meat in an informative, yet unobtrusive manner. And if you have not yet heard of Gaucho's legendary salad bar, let's just say you're in for a treat. We'll be back, Gaucho, although not soon enough to suit me!

The restaurant is completely different from its predecessor, UP. You step off the elevator into the bar area. The restaurant has been beautifully redesigned and redecorated from floor to ceiling. The food is excellent and the service is very professional and attentive. We had the Restaurants Week menu which I think was essentially their regular menu.

An excellent evening. I will return and I also highly recommend this restaurant!

Everything was great except for the hostess tending the salad bar. Don't get me wrong she was so sweet, but we could tell she had no idea what gluten-free consisted of. The rest of the staff we mentioned the allergy to went to ask what was gluten free to make sure if was safe for my friend to eat. I went with a friend of mine who has a severe gluten allergy. We mentioned thus allergy, and she seemed very confused, and told us to avoid foods that had greens in them. My friend just avoided the salad bar all together. Other than that, everything was amazing.

I was a little disappointed that I received a phone call earlier in the day regarding my reservation and the dress code. It was STRESSED that street wear would not be accepted. However, there were several people in shorts, flip flops, slides, and ragged t-shirts. It was very frustrating knowing I received a very stern call only to see all of this around us. It was unacceptable. When I brought it to the hostess' stands attention, I was told "they must have slipped by ". 5 to 7 people all "slipped" by.

Spent our late anniversary here. They took a late reservation on a sunday and were very nice to accommodate our request even past their closing time. We were actually the ones getting uneasy because it was late but their servers went above and beyond to make our night memorable;)
