Service was good, food was acceptable, the staff was not very friendly. Nothing special, especially when you consider the prices.

Always a treat! Great food, service and atmosphere. Competitively priced with nearby steakhouses. Tasty small plates also available.

Best food ever! So many choices! The salad bar is even amazing! The only issue is how much it costs to eat there per person.

The food here is excellent. They have a great salad bar if you don’t eat much meat. It is pricey, but worthwhile for a special occasion. We took grandma for thanksgiving and she had a great time!

We were here for dinner. It is overly rated place. They are famous because of good marketing and special way of delivering food to table. Other than that they have decent buffet salad bar. Food that comes in table is mostly undercooked or as they...More

This place shouldn’t call itself a Brazilian steakhouse. No filet, leg of lamb or chops. Salad bar is from a cheap buffet.

Good, but maybe had hoped for just a little more. Hard to have a sustained visit when servers are always coming round with items; both a positive and a negative...

There are 3 levels to our Gaucho meal. The difference on the 3 levels is the selection of meats. Kids 6 to 12 years old the pricing will be $11.95, $14.95, and/or $16.95.

I don't know the exact prices, but I would say around $20-$30 per person depending on what you order. We really like the meat and pineapple from the grill. They also have a great salad bar. We don't usually eat the sides... More
