THIS IS AN HONEST REVIEW!!!
Many of the prior review may have only tried Chama Gaucha as their ""first"" Brazillian Steakhouse, because this product based on other Brazilian Steakhouses is BELOW sub-par! :(
Lets start with the good things this restaurant has.......... ""the staff"" mainly Chris (the other staff in our areas were also good and were both named David).
I must add that, I visited on May 19th, 2012, at around 8pm. We called to make reservations since we were advised that the walk in wait was min. 2hours (so, we went ahead and made reservations for 9pm). Well, like I mentioned earlier we ended up walking in around 7:30'ish and was seated at 7:55-8pm there was practically NO WAIT (nonetheless a 2hr. wait).
Moving along, we started with the salad bar as usual, VERY LIMITED as compared to Texas de Brazil, and Fogo :( For one, the Tabbouli was horrible (lacked significant flavor), this is sad, as I love to enjoy my meats with a flavorful Tabbouli as it enhances the flavors even more, .......unfortunately, this was not possible with the Chama Gaucha Experience.
Next it was time to eat the meats, the guys were very fast, the first was the Filet Mignon asked for medium rare (got more rare), Tried the chicken cognac and it was flavorless, next came the pork ribs and they could have cooked it a little more (as a portion of it was quite rare), following that option came the Lamb..........the bone tips were very charred, so I thought that they were cook to perfection.......NOT!!! Slowly the night became a very big dis-apointment to say the least :( . I confronted the manager Jordan, and he was the MOST ARROGANT man I have ever came into contact with in San Antonio. A very bad reflection on the company as a whole! This guy made a snide remark to me after telling him about his ""slack in product"". I was VERY TAKEN BACK!
As a manager Jordan, you should learn to take the H.E.A.T!!! Hear, Empathize, Apologize, and Take Action!! you acted with very little empathy so I didn't expect you to apologize for my experience (which you didn't/ you really need to be coached on your interactions with guest because what Chamma Gaucha has is a HEARTLESS EMPLOYEE miss-representing a potentially qualified product........... WOW!!
Let me just tell you Chama Gaucha San Antonio I am a 14yr. Chef who owns one of North Houston's Largest Catering and Event Production Companies (so I know what I am talking about!)
I love a GOOD Brazillian Steakhouse, if there is any advice that I can lend to you (the consumer) is if you are interested to have the FULL Brazilian EXPERIENCE, PLEASE TRY Fogo de Chao, then, Texas de Brazil, and LAST Chama Gaucha (if you insist) you will feel the same way I do!
I didn't want to add this but my husband was on the toilet all night :(
1.) Good ""Servers"" (thats it!)
1.) Under cooked meats which lead to
2.) Lack of Flavor & a
3.) Limited Salad Bar
People that go to a Brazillian Steakhouse know they will SPEND MONEY.......so spend it where you are going to get your money's worth.......... PLEASE :)
Chef Michelle Tadeo-Hernandez!

My wife’s family came up from Venezuela. All 8 of us went there and had such a great experience that I will defiantly be going back. I got in and they have these huge sofas and gave us beer when we were waiting for our table. I didn’t to much like my beer they gave me so they traded it for another free of cost. Some of the best food in San Antonio and staff was great!!!!!!! If they had 10 stars they would get it.

Chama is one of the best steakhouses we have ever been to. We have tried several other Brazilian restaurants and this is the best. The wait staff is amzaing and they cater to your every need. The salad bar is also delicious and has many types of salads and vegetables which would be good for a vegetarian. The meat is cooked to perfection and I highly recommend it to all.

Wife and I went with our sons on our 25th anniversary. The service was relentless, catering to our needs at all times. The red wine was awesome with the various cuts of meat! Other than overeating, I had a great time! My wife and sons enjoyed it immensely! Boys are 17 and 20 and they ate their money's worth. We had a tremendous waiter that took care of us but another came and asked, ""Who's birthday is it?"" (Wife and I had a big laugh after the main waiter apologized profusely.) Must recommend the creme brulee. Simply leaves an impression after all the protein ingestion!

This Place just need a tiny bit more attention to the needs of customer and its 'Untouchable!' Specificly, servers need to smile more and not behave as if the customer needs to hurry when deciding whether or not they want more outstanding food. Otherwise, Awesome Awesome Awesome!
We went to the SATX location today for an early mother's day treat and we were amazed at our experience! Nothing disappointed. I can't believe how heavenly everything was. It wasn't the portion size, it was the TASTE DELIGHT!!!! The meal itself wasn't the only thing that pleased it was all of waitstaff/employees as well. Whatever they have done there should definitely be bottled and sold nationwide! OPEN more locations I want to brag about this place to my brothers and sisters and they all live out of town! ;-) I know our family will be going again.

When you first walk in the restaurant is very nice. The service is exceptional. The meat that is served tableside, immediately when you request it, is seasoned and cooked to perfection. My husband and I tried every type of meat they offered. We both preerred everything except for the lamb. The salad bar is like no other. It has beautiful steamed aspagus, delicious bleu cheese and olive oils. I didn't try the chicken salad but, my husband said it was the best he ever had. We both had the Creme Brulee for dessert and it was a perfect ending! I actally had a dream about the place after I went!

Wow. I have heard plenty about this restaurant and how good it supposedly is. The atmosphere was very nice, and the food is good, HOWEVER when my fiance and I were there, the waiter was new(I think) and he made a couple of mistakes with our order. That was irritating, but I didn't want to give the guy a hard time. We did let them know the issue though, and the manager (an Asian fellow), was very rude to us. He seemed very arrogant and acted like he was angry that we were complaining or that he did not believe that his precious restaurant could make a mistake. He made us feel very uncomfortable there. So long story short, food is good, the place is nice, but the manager is THE biggest jerk I've ever met. What was supposed to be a nice date night for us turned bad because of this experience, so we won't be going there ever again.

Wow…what a great restaurant to take the family and friends. Outstanding service with great food. Wife really enjoyed the salad bar while I enjoyed the main meal. The perfect place to take our friends visiting from Europe. I was told the owner even gave coupons to the Fisher Houses in San Antonio that takes care of the military families in need of critical medical care. Thanks for the great service and thanks for thinking of our military families.

We had family come into town and decided we were going to try out the Brazilian Steak House.
There were 9 of us all together including younger children.
They were at our every need. None of us saw the bottom of our water or wine glasses. They were always right there to pour more for you.
The meal was excellent. If there was something you wanted all you had to do was ask and someone was there with it.
Great place and will be back again!

The salad bar has a good variety but the meats brought by the wait staff are what this place is all about. The selections are very well prepared and spiced to bring out the best flavor. They keep your plate filled and quickly bring any special requests. The attention to detail is apparent throughtout the meal as crumbs are cleaned from the table and glasses refilled quickly. A most pleasurable dining experience whether for lunch or diner.

This is the best place ever for a good meal. I went at lunch time because of the value. The food was excellent and the waiters were funny and friendly. It is a different experience than American dining and the authentic Brazillian food is delicious. I went with my friend and her mother (they are Brazillian) and they said it was wonderful - they would know! I plan on returning often. If you go, go hungry because there is SO much to try.

We visited Chama Gaucha today for the first time and I left with the certainty that this is the best restaurant I've ever been to. Every morsel we ate was delicious (and there were multitudes of different foods to try) and the service was just amazing. The waiter even held my chair and cleared the table of crumbs. I thought that kind of service was extinct! The restaurant is very stylish and elegant inside, but the staff is still family friendly. I absolutely love this place and want to bring all my family and friends to experience it!

We went there for lunch and could only go thru the salad bar. It was so full of healthy options. There were so many choices. We will return next time with an empty stomach to then try the meats. The staff was friendly and helpful. They walked us through the entire experience. Very nice touch.

Great food, good atmosphere and wonderful staff. I have been there numerous times in the past year, and have not had a bad experience yet. As a matter of fact the service has improved!!! They are very helpful and knowledgable about their wine selection and won't make you feel like an idiot when you order. The last time we were there they even had a nice after dinner drink selection that they bring to your table and present. Great stuff... Highly recomend
