We chose this for our Valentine's dinner and I am so glad we did! The food was plentiful and amazing - both from the hot/cold bar as well as the meats being brought around. The Gauchos were so friendly and approachable. It was an amazing experience and we will certainly be back!

Pretty good, but many of the meat choices were too alike and the chicken wrapped bacon was DRY. Everything else was great. FOGO still the best right now.

Wife and I went out last Friday reservations for 9:00 was greeted as soon as we walked in. Our server Daniel was amazing outstanding customer service. Always refilling both our drinks together instead of separate brought us the mash potatoes unlike our last waiter a few weeks before Daniel was excellent and will be thrilled to request him next time we make reservations.

This restaurant is fantastic. My Wife and I dine there on average once a month. We always receive great service by very friendly staff. The meats are prepared perfectly to your taste. I like medium rare, and my wife likes well done. The Gauchos actually remember her preferences and bring her well done each time! You simply cannot find a better dining experience when looking for a Brazilian Steakhouse. Our preferred server is Amanda. So friendly and welcoming. She is the best! I'm dining there tonight with my Wife and Daughter and Grandson for Valentine's Day. Can't wait!!

Food was good but the gauchos stopped bringing it by too soon. Was disappointing for this style of restaurant.

We had been there before when the choices kept coming throughout the meal. This time there was not enough meat to satisfy.

The ONLY reason not 5 stars is because we went on Christmas eve and it was supposed to be the full dinner menu. We were charged for the full dinner menu, but it was only the lunch meats. Until we asked about 1 item from the dinner. Then we had to wait for more than 30 minutes on that to be brought around.
The food was geeat, but the price should have reflected what was actually going to be offered.

What a great experience! We went for my mother’s birthday, and we were not disappointed. The service was above and beyond expectations. We wanted for absolutely nothing. From our server to the gentlemen who brought the meat around, they were polite and concerned with our needs. Definitely some of the best service we’ve ever had at a restaurant! The food was wonderful. We loved the variety and the options for meat as well as on the bar. Great wine and beer selection, too! Can’t wait to go back!

Great restaurant and great people. We were amazed that the hostess knew everything that was gluten free and foods that were not. That in itself is worth 5 stars. We were stuffed when we left, but were able to eat slowly enough to be able to talk, laugh, and have a real family time

Been to several Brazilian steakhouses over the last few years. Unfortunately, out of all my experiences this was the least favorable visit.
Reservations were at 8pm. They close at 10pm and seemed like just shortly after 9pm, all the staff were doing closing activities and were not as focused on service. Many could be seen sitting near the bar area eating and on their phones.
Then most of the staff that brought the meats to the table were unfamiliar with the cuts and temperature of the meat they were offering. Had to keep requesting steak because they kept bringing sausages and chicken more than anything.
Also the little cheese breads that are brought to the table upon arrival were hard as rocks, I had to ask for fresh ones.
As I also work in customer service, I am more accepting of variations in customer service, however, when I recommend a restaurant to my friends for an evening out, I expect to be treated well and great customer service as Brazilian steakhouses are known for.
I will say that on a positive note, every person who we encountered there was extremely pleasant.

Selections were either overcooked or freezer-burned. Simply not good. I was disappointed because I had heard good things and would love to have this type of restaurant closer, but I would not recommend it and we will not return.

Small and somewhat hidden but wonderful atmosphere and excellent service. Food and drinks have been as good or better than the more well known Brazilian steakhouses in Atlanta. There doesn't seem to be exotic cuts of meat here but what they do serve is excellent with wonderful flavor, texture and great pacing.

We came here for our anniversary-the staff was amazing as was the food. While you don’t get quite the selection of fogo de chao or Chima, it’s still a gray selection of tender, juicy meats. The side bar was well stocked and fresh. The table sides were delicious as well. Sometimes Brazilian meats can be a bit salty, but Santa Lucia has he seasoning down - perfection! Wine and beer prices were reasonable as well. We will definitely be back...
