    I took my girlfriend for her birthday. She's Brazilian. Obviously, it's brazilian food for Americans and it's not the same as eating in Brazil. The salad bar was a bit underwhelming- a bit bare bones and nothing too exciting. Generally, there's a nice selection of charcuterie- this one just had salami. The meats are the star of the show and while most were pretty good, a couple of them were overlooked and dry. Certainly not a bad meal but could've been better. We had a good time, though.

    My wife, daughter and I were very disappointed with the service at Fogo de Chao! It was a supposed to be a special night out but turned into an extreamly overpriced disappointment! We were placed at a table in the most obscure and difficult to reach corner near the glass oven in front and as a result the servers almost never came by our table. We had to repeatedly ask the head waiter to send someone by. My daughter had requested a medium cut of a filet five times before anyone brought it by and it still took almost thirty minutes for the server to bring it to our table. When he finally did it was not medium but well done and very tough!!!! Our special night was pretty much ruined! While the food was good for the most part the service was horrible! We won't be coming back!

    I didn't like the lamb, but its the 1st time i ever had it. I feel sure if you are a lamb eater you would love it. Servers were quick to arrive as soon as we turned green side up. Sides left something to be desired, I don't eat bananas or polenta and the mashed potatoes were flavorless. the warm food at the salad bar was quite flavorless as well. I like for my food to be seasoned while cooked not at the table. Was not a fan of the chicken or pork but again I am more a beef girl. Not a bad cut of beef came to the table

    For a Family dinner with teenagers, I was disappointed. Poorer cuts of meat were abundant but expensive cuts arrived only after requested and only once. Expected more salad bar selections. Very pricey for the package. Lit up like a diner and noisy. Wait staff pleasant. A seafood selection should be offered within the set price.

    There's no such thing as a bad meal at fogo. All the meats I can stomach served promptly and whatever temperature I desired. Salad bar is enough to satisfy the masses as well. Caipirinhas.... bottle of red wine and at a table at fogo de chao.... now that's living well!

    My wife and I were in Atlanta for a special event. She had never been here before so I wanted to treat her. The service from the valet all the way through the meal was excellent. And of course, if you love eating various types of meat, this is the place for you! There isn't anything there I wouldn't recommend. So take the time to come try it out. Especially if you have a special event.

    My boyfriend and I celebrated our two year anniversary recently and we ended the day with dinner here. We have been before and love that the service is fast since there is no time wasted putting orders through, etc. Although the seating area was set up in a way that there isn't a private/romantic nook, I selected romantic because we enjoyed ourselves and had a fun, laid back dinner.

    We celebrated my husband's birthday in the electric atmosphere. The constant, quiet movement of the servers is like a musical without the music. I felt that they anticipated Amy needs we had before we asked. It is a happy active atmosphere perfect for a mature birthday dinner. The food was excellent and varied, the salad bar was fresh and varied. I highly recommend. Our party of 6 enoyes the whole experience.

    Lots of meat. All kind of meat. I am just an average eater, not like a meat expert, and the meat just tastes like regular barbecue meat to me... I honest don't think it tastes that special. But the environment is good, the service is good, and the salad bar is good.

    Just returned from a sensational meal from Fogo! Upon our being seated, our favorite and amazing server, Carlos came to greet us. Carlos goes that extra mile, making sure the food that we want is brought out to our liking. He was attentive, friendly, going that extra mile in ALL ways to make our experience incredible. His words of "ENJOY" are truly meant by his warm and genuine smile. The true highlight is not just the food , but the whole experience, especially and including the service!

    So sad that some of the best items of the evening were the rolls and the martinis - the meat was good (though we never got the lamb - we had two huge parties in our small back room and the gauchos could rarely get past them to us), but the rolls and the Brazilian martini were divine. Maybe they can offer a rolls only menu option? :)

    I really enjoyed my dinner at Fogo de Chao. The highlights are: The staff- absolutely fantastic! I lovee'd the introduction to the restaurant from the young lady who started us out. She's a gem! There are 200 hundred people in that restaurant but if you want your steak medium rare, your gaucho server will remember that and bring it to you. Next: The salad bar! That could be a great meal in itself and everything is so fresh and crisp it is just wonderful. But you have to come here hungry. Trying even a small portion of the meat offerings is impossible, and I'm a big eater!

    The salad bar and vegetables, which alone are worthy of patronage, can only occupy the one scarcity at Fogo: room in your belly for meat. I've entertained clients twice, and each experience was a success. Regardless if this project is successful, our clients will return if for no other reason than to eat Fogo. And lots of it.

    Despite the fact that we are mostly vegetarian, we love this restaurant. We do not think that you could possibly find a better salad bar. In addition, the rice, beans, potatoes are very good. The sides which are brought to the table are great additions!

    First of all, service is the best and definetely food, no doubt. I've noticed that the noise level was much louder than last time. I wish it'd stay a notch lower so if you're having a romantic dinner you wouldnt have to yell across the table. Had neighbors rapping "happy birthday" to their friend but it sounded like they want everyone to look at them like they are doing a toast at a wedding. Others groups were loud too. So next time for anything special I'd go somewhere more quite unless it's your b-day and u have at least 4-6 folks with you. But I'll still come back for the food.
