Downers Grove's Best Restaurant – I loved this place. I am definitely not a meat person and I still loved it. Once you turn your card to the green side, meat servers came crowding around your table offering you exotic and different looking meat. Their service was wonderful and we felt like we were the only ones in the restaurant. There were two main courses. There is a buffet of 30 different kinds of salad, vegetables, and side dishes. Since I am not big on meat, I mostly ate the first course which was the buffet. It doesn't matter how much you eat, and it will all cost the same. You are charged for a meal and that is it. I tried their Brazilian soda and I loved it. It had so flavor and I took home a can of it. They are very pricy. I went with two other people and the bill ended up being $120 even though we had a kid with us. Each meal is $40 and for kids it is only $20, but it all added up. Besides that, it was great. As soon as we walked in, at least 5 waiters/waitresses came to our table and took off our coats and hung them on the back of our chair. The main waiter explained how everything worked and we felt very comfortable with our new surroundings. We had trouble finding the bathroom and we figured out that it is in the far left corner all the way in the back. We had such a great time there and it felt like we were in Brazil. I definitely suggest going there if you are looking for an authentic high-priced meal. I loved it!!
5 stars and then some! – I have been at this restaurant 2 to 3 times a month since it opened just one year ago. From the firt time to last week every visit was top notch. Nothing better in meat (I've been to all the brazilian Chicago steakhouses) nothing better in service nor atmosphere. If I had to write down everything I would want in a restaurant, who would of believe it could come true...but it did in Chama Gaucha. Go, and you'll go back again and again...feel special, eat quality foods in abundance and enjoy an experience that will make all others pale in comparison.
TOP NOTCH FOOD & SERVICE – The resturant was a awesome experience, from start to finish. I took my wife for her birthday, to a place she wanted to go to. We had been to other places that are the same type of food service. We are locals and enjoy going out each week, but this was special.
This place was different right from the start, we walked in and were greeted/treated like they knew us. The staff at this restaurant was remarkable as they took care of everything we asked for and some things that we didn't. My tea glass never got below half empty, and it was not just our table that had this level of service.
Then came the salad bar, that was worth the price alone and the meats, in a word AWESOME. It was a meatfest as soon as you flip your card to green look out, the meat was non-stop. We had steak, lamb, chicken and sauages all prepared to almost unbelieveable standards.
This was one of the best restuarants we have been to in quite awhile, we will go back and take some friends as this place ROCKS!!!
