    I love this place! The potato salad on the salad bar is my favorite!! I just wish they had a GF dessert other than creme brûlée.

    So excited that I could eat 90% of the food here- I really didn't miss out! And the bread is phenomenal. Expensive but worth it for a special occasion.

    Excellent, probably one of the the best GF dining experiences I've had and I just had the salad bar. My wife and son had the meat also and they loved it. I would go much more often, just for the salad bar, cassava bread and polenta, if it weren't so expensive.

    Love this place! Let them know you have an allergy because there are a few things that contain gluten. Everyone is helpful and nice and the food is worth what you pay.

    I have enjoyed eating at this place for years for special occasions. This was first time since my celiac disease diagnosis and they were very helpful with service and my special diet needs now. The waitstaff and managers made sure I was aware of what I could not eat, which was not a lot as almost the entire menu is pretty open and gluten free. The bananas had been changed in preparation since my last visit, so I asked if they could just prepare them the old without a crust and they did. Also the chicken wings are marinated in beer, so also unable to eat them, therefore I just stayed with chicken bread wrapped with bacon. They were all very accommodating, will definitely go back again.

    took my boyfriend there for his birthday(he has celiac), the service was more than amazing and not to mention how excited he was because he could eat everything there besides the house salad. all of the food was amazing and the staff was very knowledgeable we were approached immediately as we sat down because I had noted it in our reservation.

    Amazing experience! Over 95% of the food is gluten free including the cheese bread they bring to the table. There is only 3 or 4 things that I could not eat. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

    By far one of my most positive dining experiences since being diagnosed with Celiac's. The staff are amazing, and our waiter was able to tell me immediately what few options had gluten in them. Absolutely delicious meal, including their to-die-for Brazilian cheese bread. Cannot recommend highly enough!

    This is pretty much as good as it gets for gluten free diners. There is hardly anything you can't eat here and they serve the best to-die for gluten free rolls I've found anywhere. The polenta is equally delicious and amazing as are the mashed potatoes and plantains. I think I just talked myself into going right now. Service too is impeccable.

    Brazilian steakhouse. Nearly all of the meat here is gluten-free! Waitstaff is extremely knowledgeable. Be sure to ask what you can/can't eat. For sure no sausage or chicken (marinated in beer). My favorite part -- the little bread puffs are GF! They are made of parmesan cheese and tapioca flour, and they are amazing!

    Phenomenal! Everyone was very attentive to all my allergies. no reactions, they even made special cuts of meat with sea salt only for me! They also made salad in kitchen to limit cross contamination.

    I will never eat another Brazilian steak house again after eating here. The service is amazing, the manager was so helpful in making sure I knew what few things I could not eat, and there is so much food!!! I recommend this place to as many people as possible!

    I love this place as everything except for some salad dressings are gluten free. The brazilian cheese popovers are to fantasize over. By the time you eat else where, with appetizers & sides, Chama Gaucho is the best deal over any upscale steak house! ;-) And the meat far superior in flavor & quality! Service is supreme! Just ask for how you would like your meat & they bring it to you perfect!
