    Our server, Claude, took excellent care of us without hovering. Our cocktails were delicious and the food was outstanding! We will definitely come back here. It was a nice touch for my husband’s birthday with a complimentary dessert on a special plate. All around fantastic dining experience!

    We went for my daughter's birthday and they sat us in the back room with a large graduation party. It was super loud. We could not hear ourselves much less across the table. The waitress was too spread out and should not have been assigned tables other than this large party. Food was not that great and she admitted at the end that she forgot our last 2 drink orders but "dont worry, it is not on your bill!" The bill did have an automatic gratuity for party of 7. We had gone many times and won't be back. Just walking out of that back room was a relief in term of noise level... Wish I had demanded a different table.

    THESE LAMB CHOPS ARE UNSURPASSED in my experience!! This is the better deal I have ever heard of… I have been to two other Brazilian steakhouses and this is by far my favorite experience! The salad bar was the most elegant I have ever seen, and the selection is absolutely delectable. I had never had heart of palm or heart of palm soup before and they were both delicious. The value for the absolute quality of food and service is unparalleled. 👌🏼 Everything - including the cocktails - tasted so fresh and was cooked to perfection, where applicable. This will be our new favorite date night venue. 🤎

    Food was okay. Salad bar had little options. All the food choices during the meal didn’t come around. Pineapples came around every 5 minutes but the wait for the meats wasn’t good. Overall, not bad but could’ve been better.

    Good place but it feels like a Chama Gaucha wanna be. Good service but the food is not as expected. The meats are a little too salty. Is still as expensive so if I have to choose I may go somewhere else.

    A hard meh. Had reservations and waited half hour to be seated. Draft machine broke. Coffee machine broke. Not all proteins available. Service was lacking. We didn't get the complimentary appetizers until half way through our meal.

    All of the food was delicious, but I tend to compare this restaurant with other Brazilian’s which is unfair!!! Their food is great but slightly less choices than other Brazilian steak houses, but we left very satisfied with the food. The hugely noticiable improvement from 3 yrs ago was the service and hospitality. Everyone who came to my table smiled, was friendly, service oriented and I would give them a 5 ++ for service. They will be my first choice in Brazilian Steakhouses in the future.

    Have not eaten here since they fist opened. They were working out issues then so we were happy to see things were running pretty good. Food was good and service was pretty good. Pricing is a little less than some other Brazilian steakhouses we have eaten at before.

    No hostess was present to seat us at our reservation time. Several wait staff walked by but no one asked if they could help us. Across the room I could see other employees looking in my direction but no one approached us. I finally walked into the dining area and asked a server if we could be seated. He tracked down the hostess and she told us there would be a half hour wait (even with a reservation) because they were short staffed. Not sure why they accept reservations if they cannot provide the service. “Candied Bacon” was greasy, limp slivers of bacon. My iced tea never got refilled the entire meal and not a big variety of meat was offered. Not a good value for the money.

    The greeter and initial waiter was friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious. The people handing out the meat was ok. Wish they weren’t so fast. One of them left the table without serving my husband. A helper completely missed or ignored my husband’s empty plate area but asked another man with a plate if he wanted another one. Didn’t make sense. The supervisor made up for it though. He made sure we got everything we needed after that. And he made a delicious carajillo. The best we’ve had yet.

    Waitress was very slow or overworked. Asked several times for drinks, sides etc. Overall approximately 30 minutes of unnecessary waiting was added to our visit, not good for us or the business. I'm guessing based on her inability to smile that the place is short staffed and she was being overworked. Food wasn't as great as other Brazilian Steak Houses in the area but it wasn't bad either. Service will be why we don't return.

    The waitstaff never came to our table. We had to keep getting up to ask them for help. When we have gone to Charmagoucha, they immediately come to you. We will return to Charmagoucha. The salad bar pales in comparison to Charmagoucha as well.

    We waited about 45 min after our reservation to be seated and we arrived early . This would have been ok if we were able to get drinks from the bar, but that was not an option. Once we were seated we had to ask for plates and it was a while before the sides came. We were just sitting waiting on the check for at least 30 min. The meat was mediocre compared to other steakhouses.

    The food was good and as far as pricing for Brazilian Steakhouses go it was fairly priced in this category. The dessert was above and beyond the best part of the experience. I would go here just for the dessert. There is a bar so if you're not in the mood for a meat buffet but want the best creme brulee I have found in San Antonio, you could sit at the bar have drinks and dessert. My wife had the flan and loved it, she said it was just like hers without having to bake it herself. So that's really high marks from her. Only complaints we have are with the drinks, first is they could have been clearer when they greeted with a bottle of Acqua Panna that they would be charging us for it. (I should have presumed but it was not clearly stated by our waiter.) Second the soft drinks came to the table in cans unopened and with a glass no ice.

    We took our daughter to GG to celebrate her birthday and we were very disappointed with our third visit to GG. We had a reservation yet we had to wait about 15 min to be seated. The hostess sat us down and took our drink order and brought us regular water as we requested. On our second round of water, the manager took it upon himself to pour us (without asking) a $10 bottle of water. Most restaurants have the common courtesy to ASK what kind of water you prefer. We waited forever for our drinks and on plates to start out meal. We had to visit the salad bar in order to get plates. My husband did not get olives in his martini and even when I asked for them, we still had to wait a while before he got any olives. The chiles torriados we asked earlier, did not come until the tail end of our meal. The cuts of meats we asked for took forever to come to our table, that is if they even came. The grilled pineapple that several people mentioned on their reviews made it to our table at the end of our meal. Our waitress was clueless as to what wines where available. The two wines we wanted were not available. The dessert was ok but there was no acknowledgement of my daughter’s birthday. Needless to say, if you want to experience a good Brazilian steakhouse don’t waste your time here you will be better off going to Brasao, Fogo de Chao or Chama Gaucha.

    We celebrated our 52nd anniversary there with friends. Service was excellent, and food, delicious! We found it a more intimate setting than some other similar restaurants. I could live off the salad/soup/seafood/cheese bar alone, but the meats were well seasoned and tender (some cuts obviously more than others). Even the bacon wrapped chicken was tasty. Our server (Yosseth?) was attentive and responsive. And that chocolate molten cake with ice cream? Decadently delicious! We will return!
