    It takes a lot for me to make me write review. As someone that is in restaurant business, seeing outstanding service is worth mention. My girlfriend wanted to supprise me with dinner at one of the other restaurants in Buckhead area and after our reservations was lost, we opted for Fogo. We were seated right away and before we ever finished setlling in our chairs, water was on table and our exceptional server Daniel was ready to explain how everything works. Attentive thru out service he made our dinner very enjoyable. Best part is after dinner he brought out dessert with happy birthday writen on plate. After asking him how he knew it was my birthday, he simple answered sometimes you just sense it. Fantastic !

    This Fogo de Chao was comparable to others we have enjoyed but maybe not quite as nice as some and more crowded. As always with Fogo de Chao, the unlimited meats were delicious and the service was good.

    I had a friend in from out of town that was staying in Buckhead and wanted to meet for dinner. I chose Fogo as I've always had a great time there and knew he would like it. We arrived early but were still seated promptly on arrival. Our service staff was spot on as well as all the food and selection. We had another friend join which complicated our table ( didn't want to pull another chair to block aisle ) and they cheerfully relocated us to another table to accommodate. Everything was done very well, highly recommend.

    Reminded us of the "all you can eat" buffets that our kids used to love when they were young... lots of food (salad bar was nice, but mixed salads weren't great); lots of meat tasting pretty similar to the next type of meat (filet mignon was really tender); large tables for conventions made the ambience intolerable. Won't recommend to others, and won't go ever again!

  • Just go easier on the salt!
    Ruben
    Dined on 8/7/2014
    The place is great and the people is very friendly; the salad bar is the best part but when it comes to the meats although is tender is it just too salty! So much salt that you cannot enjoy flavor. I took my wife for our anniversary and we enjoyed the night but we both got back home so thirsty that we couldn’t stop drinking water all night and until next morning. In my opinion, they have a good place, great location, people and salad bar is the best, and the meats seem to be of good quality, just go easier on the salt.

    I have lots of business associates who fly in from out of town, and they have all heard from other co-worked about this magical meca of meat, and inevitably demand to be taken there. It has never failed to live up to the hype, and no one ever leaves unsatisfied.

    This was our third experience at Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse and it was superb. The staff was spot on with their timing and very courteous. "Extremely flavorful" would be my description of the fare we experienced during our visit. I would recommend this fine eating establishment to anyone with a desire to attain "Meat Nirvana". It was indeed a Carnival for Carnivores!

    One of the servers was rude. This was me and my sons first time dining at this type of restaurant. He asked this specific waiter that was serving the meat as to what type of meat was being served and im not sure if he could not speak English very well but he seemed very annoyed. My actual waiter saw this and apologized. The waiters serving the meat should be well versed in explaining the different meats being served as they walk around and not have bad attitudes. The pictures are helpful but when the meat is actually being served it should not be an issue for a waiter to let us know what he is bringing to your table. As a patron I rely on the waiter serving the meat to tell me what it is, and not be annoyed.

    We choose Fogo as the final dinner on our family vacation to Atlanta, GA. As a party of six, we truly enjoyed the atmosphere while spending time with a cousin we had not seen in twenty years. The noise level allowed us to talk around the table while not having to yell. The salad bar, meats, and sides were wonderful, and we were able to request specific cuts of meat.

    Reservations
    Dined on 7/10/2014
    Arrived 10 mins prior to my 8pm reservation. Checked in. My guest was already there before me. Was told by check in staff it would be a few minutes to be seated from the time I arrived. At 8:04 I inquired as to when me any my guest would be seated. Was told in my table is being set up for a party of 6. I survived the dinning room. It was half full with plenty of open tables (all of which was pre-set with flatware and glasses as normal), and numerous of them already had settings for 6 people. Finally at 8:12pm, my party and I were seated, without an apology for the delay or nothing. We were there for a milestone celebration with Corporate Execs, family and friends. It was embarracing for me. Reservation served me and my guest no purpose!

    This restaurant, with it's outstanding salad bar, is worth going to for that alone. And, you have an option to eat only the food at the salad bar. The side items are brought to the table family style. Servers in uniform come to the table with assorted freshly cooked meats, trimmed from skewers at your place "on demand," and you can eat as much as your heart desires. It's a lot of fun for special occasions & big groups. Be ready to spend an average of $70-80pp.

She had been there twice before so she had kind of told me how the service was but I wasn't prepared at all for the way the meat tasted! It was outstanding and the service was impeccable! Thank you for your hospitality! Our server even covered the dessert because he had found out it was my birthday. Great job Fogo!

    The food was delIcious as always, but service was a bit lacking compared to every other time I've been here. We were seated promptly, but our waiter left to get my husband's drink while I was perusing the wine list and he took a long time to come back, which left me waiting for my drink well into the salad portion of the meal. Meat service was spotty at first with gauchos walking past our table without offering meat, but it picked up and stayed at a good pace. We did wait for a final portion of picanha that never came, though. Desserts were good (try the caramelized pineapple!) but the waiter (a different one from the beginning of our meal) took my bottle of wine to recork and didn't return for close to 15 minutes.
