First time for lunch. Food & service is excellent. A little pricey but worth it. Tough street parking.

Great place for a hearty dinner with friends. If you're not familiar with Brazilian Steakhouses...it's got the MEATS! The great thing about Espetus is their great buffet selection in addition to all the meat, so if you're on a low carb diet, or not that...More

Second time there. A real experience how they put it together. Great salad bar & so many entree choices. Parking is a little tough. Go when not peak hours.

Had a pleasant meal with a visiting family member. Talkative and happy crowd. Be prepared for a noisey atmosphere. Generally good choices among the meats available as the main course.

Food was typical Espetus quality. This review isn't for the food, as the title teases. Upon receiving the bill we noticed that each Soda Water (from the gun) refill was $2.50, for a total of $12.50. A member of our party noticed this and queried...More

Do you have gluten-free options? If so, what are they? Is there a dress code for dinner?

Calling would be your best bet regarding gluten free options. There seems to be no dress code.
