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.

My son wanted to try a Brazilian steakhouse for his graduation celebration, and Gauchos Do Sul did not disappoint. I feel their meat options are extensive and of high quality. Their salad/cheese options were also raved about by the party in attendance, and the sangria was a solid addition to the meal. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, and we will be back.

We visited Gauchos Do Sul (GDS) for the first time on 5/16/18 to celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday. My husband has always wanted to eat at a Brazilian restaurant and I chose to surprise him with dinner at GDS. I was nervous because I really wanted this surprise to be a hit. We both had such a wonderful time and the food was magnificent! The staff at GDS was so kind, patient, wonderful and attentive. Visit the GDS website to learn more about the restaurant. I think everyone should experience a dining adventure like the one we had at GDS.

The food is incredible and the ambiance is great. Our first visit to Gauchos Do Sul was to celebrate Mother's Day and it was a great choice. My only complaint was that we were forgotten by the wait staff who handle deserts and the check. After asking a number of the "meat guys" our drinks person finally brought us a small piece of Tres Leches to go - about half the size of those we saw being brought to the tables around us. I was going to complain until it took another 5 minutes to get our check and by that time we just wanted to get out of there.

We'll be back but will pay much more attention to who is serving us and make sure we have a person assigned to us.

I took my wife there for Mother's Day and it was a marvelous experience! Service was great and then was outdone by the food! At $50/person, more than I normally spend, but certainly a good value for a special occasion. I heartily recommend.

We have been to Gauchos on several occasions. It is our go to location for a special holiday or date night. This particular night all the right cuts of meat were seasoned to perfection and even the salad bar was awesome. Service is exceptional and our glasses were never empty. We always had fresh plates and the server were attentive with the amount, style, and 'doneness' of the meats that we prefer.

I had a friend recommend it after I told her I was looking for a nice place to take my wife for her birthday. I made reservations and was seated 15 minutes early with no problems. From the moment we were seated we were made to feel special, the order of the restaurant was explained to us by the staff who were very comforting. As we begin our meal the wait staff was very attentive filling our glasses, bringing extras and removing things when they could tell we were done. As well we notice the pride they took in clearing the tables when quest had left. It was a great all around experience.

This was the second time to visit the restaurant and as the first it was great. Ledersan and Daison were great as was all of the staff. The salad bar alone is worth going to this restaurant. The selection of wines was outstanding. The new Brazilian wine we tried was fantastic. As for the meats and seafood, everything was wonderful, but the rib eye steak was superb. This place is great!

This restaurant is for serious meat lovers. There were 15 different meat courses they bring you. I tried most, but not all of them. The ones I tried were all good, but some were memorable they were so delicious. The salad bar rivals the very best out there with salads, cold meats, cheese, marinated veggies, and bread. The cheese rolls are yummy!
You have to pace yourself and take small portions or you won’t make it through. It is an enormous quantity of food, and everything is so good I wanted to try everything. That was not possible for me. We all tried something off the dessert menu, and although only a few of us could finish the large portions, they were all really good. There were seven of us celebrating my son’s 16th birthday, and it was pricey but worth it.

I loved it! Honestly, I thought the food was better seasoned here, than at Chama Goucha, Texas de Brazil or Fogo de Chao. We probably eat at one bbn of those chains at least 6 times a year. The only protein that I thought was better at the chains was the picana. I also liked that you didn't have to pay extra for seafood selections. There was a shrimp cocktail on the salad bar and grilled shrimp and salmon for entrees. The only side dish I eat is the mashed potatoes. They were actually seasoned and quite good. Usually, they are bland.

The service was awesome. The waiter was attentive and asked what selections we wanted and he actually followed up on our requests. Also, management came by often to check on our meal.

The ambiance was nice and not too loud. Staff was attentive and friendly. Food was great! We will definitely be back, in the future.

We heartily recommend this restaurant. The service was wonderful, and the whole staff could not have been more friendly. Salad bar has everything. Delicious variety including many South American vegetables. The choices of meat and fish provided for a taste of all the flavors. The wine selection lists many South American wines from Concho Y Toro vineyard to the Montes vineyard, which included one of our favorites Montes Purple Angel. They even have Nosotros!
Even the deserts were mouth watering. The papaya was silky smooth. We had a great evening and will return soon!

This was a special occasion (boyfriend's birthday) and it far exceeded my expectations. The entire experience was fantastic. Beautiful salad bar and the meats were wonderful. I could have made a complete meal of the cheese bread. Service was first rate (thank you to the entire staff but most especially thank you Leo). The grilled pineapple was almost worth skipping desert (but not quite). Wonderful wine list. And they wished Steve a "happy birthday" both when we arrived and at desert which made him feel a bit extra special. It is pricey so come hungry but again it was fantastic especially for a special occasion. We will return!
