There are a lot of Steakhouses like this in Houston. This is my favorite of the ones I have visited. The picanha is so good, you can't stop eating it. Beware though-the salad bar is so amazing that you can eat too much before you get to the main event. The place is pricey but worth every penny for a... More

Food was very good. Waitstaff seemed a bit understaffed but they were definitely doing their best. Had to wait a long time for drink refills. I would certainly go again, however.

The salad bar has a great variety and, of course, the meats are delicious. Good wine selection and friendly, efficient service. Outdoes many other restaurants in its category.

I didn't think I could love this place any more than I already do, until I discovered the brulee cheesecake. OMGness!!!! It is so delicious and the presentation is outstanding. The rest of the food and service are still excellent as always. Chama Gaucha is the most consistent restaurant I've ever had the pleasure of enjoying. #1 is a well... More

I visit this restaurant last week with 4 colleges from Brazil, Mexico, Dubai and The Netherlands. The Picanha, Rib-eye and lamb are grilled to perfection and the CG team understand what is needed to create the Brazilian experience:).

We love this place. The service is always great and very friendly. The salad bar is superb but, who comes here for the salad bar? The meats are always cooked well. We can always get medium rare. The house special is our favorite. The lemonade is also a must have. They even have cigars for sale so, you could take... More

We enjoy the selection of food at this restaurant. The salad bar is wonderful, but hard to save room for the main course. The evening band/ensemble was very enjoyable.

I was very impressed with the food. Salad bar is awesome. Waiters and waitresses are very professional. Compared to Fogo de Choi, I will definitely visit here again.
