Entering this restaurant I expected a very high price for such little food. But, when seated it was the heaven that I had never seen: unlimited selections from the a la carte, and the main meats had been luscious; tender; extraordinary; juicy; and mind-blowing. The meats came fast and had a great variety. This was truly a heavenly experience and especially for a meat-lover and at such a reasonable price! I've never been so happy to consume so much cholesterol, just kidding! Our waitress had also been so nice and friendly, very generous also!

We had a great family meal!! A wonderful experience from start to finish. I’ve never dined any place like this before; it’s a great food adventure! I love the concept! You don’t need to wait for food or for sides to be refilled, and meat is brought to you right when your card turns green. I went with my husband and two boys, and the boys were so excited that they immediately turned their cards to green and went straight for meat, and they loved every perfect, juicy bite. My husband and I visited their huge salad bar. They had delicious imported meats, tasty cheese, fresh veggies, and even exotic fruit! I was amazed by the variety of choices offered to us! I adored their delicious edamame salad! I let the manager know how much I enjoyed it and he was so friendly, smiling, and engaged; you can tell he was passionate about the restaurant. The speedy service is the best I’ve seen. The servers were great with my boys, easily talking to them. Everyone genuinely seemed happy to be there, especially the gaucho chefs, the way they quickly move about the restaurant. They gracefully glide between tables, and they expertly slice the meat right at the table; it’s quite the show! The gauchos arrive at your table and offer you a particular cut a meat, perfectly cooked with the most savory seasonings, all while showing the biggest smile! It’s easy to say yes, because they have such a charming Brazilian accent; the next thing I know I have succulent pork ribs when I told my husband that I was only going to have perfect rare beef! The tasty Parmesan pork was our kids’ favorite. My husband fell in love with the melt-in-your-mouth lamb chops (I think he had five of them!). They have a cut called the house special which was my personal favorite; it was perfectly rare, with a delicious seasoned sear on the outer edge. And the bottom loin was sliced very thin and delectable, absolutely perfect!  The entire staff was very nice, helpful, and informed. Most of all the manager stood out to me positively. He was happy to chat with us, and he told us about the gaucho tradition. It was clear he was really proud to be a part of such an awesome restaurant, happy with his professional staff, and impressed with the gauchos’ cooking expertise. We felt the same way and we were happy to have such a memorable experience. This restaurant has such a skilled and cohesive team and it really shows in the experience. It was a perfect meal, and a my family had a great time! It is absolutely worth the very reasonable price and even worth every delicious calorie. As hard as it is, if you can save room for one of their sweet desserts you won’t regret it! The creamy traditional style flan is such a treat. We’re looking forward to when we go back for more!

Upon arrival we made reservations we had to wait 20-25 minutes to be seated once we were seated the food was coming and it was good, some of the meats can be a bit tuff but it's still good for what you get and keep getting! The young lady that was taking care of us was very very observant it was my father's birthday and we wanted to keep it low key as she noticed so when bringing desert she had the guys put Happy birthday on his plate in chocolate syrup and he got his desert for free which was easier on my wallet. Overall Great experience!

Looked forward to trying this location for some time after multiple great personal reviews came my way & overall I was pleased with the menu options. My time finding parking was short within walking distance of the entrance. Our party was tended to well throughout the visit & staff was nice, even bringing a birthday desert for the guest of honor which she loved. My Bloody Mary was crafted quickly and was great. The main stopping point from giving the 5th star literally is my check out on my ticket being awkward as I specified my ticket separation clearly after being seated & greeted by our main server. This wouldn't be as much of a deciding factor except that we were a large party on this day & all of our meals were entered under my ticket rather than the 3 separate requested tickets, causing a delay to correct. The staff was apologetic which was appreciated, however; I couldn't help but be bothered as I was also taking my parking time into account. I still look forward till visiting again & look forward to updating this review to 5 stars.

I've always heard great things about this Brazilian steak house and to my surprise the hype was worth it. The staff was always on their toes and very attentive. The food is great and the venue is super clean and has a child friendly environment. The only downfall is that the parking isn't too convenient. You have to park in parking garage and walk about half a block, but after a full belly maybe a light stroll to your car is exactly what you'll need.

I had my wedding reception here. The staff was superb. All my guests had a wonderful time. They have different level of packages when planning an event with them. I did a basic one since I wanted a dry wedding reception. The higher tiered plans come with alcoholic drink options.

I loved the pork sausage. It was an interesting experience, you start off with like a soup and salad bar and then when youre ready, they start bring out various meats to everyone. Its all you can eat, so they keep bringing out meat until you indicate that youre done. Its a great place to go to if you like sampler-type dishes because most of the meat is given in small portions so you can try all of the various meats they have to offer. You can also request that they bring out a specific meat if you would like! Very unique experience for me!
