    I really enjoyed this place. The food was amazing and the meats kept coming out on a regular basis. If I wanted some more of one item the wait staff was there to accommodate. The only thing I would say was a little annoying was how often multiple people would come by to ask how everything was. I can see if it was our waiter only, but then you add the manager, and another waiter. I noticed our conversations being interrupted several times. I would still go again and would definitely bring friends or recommend it to someone else.

    Our party of four business type adults revieved exactly what we anticipated for a "Brazilian style" dining experience. Great salad bar, prompt service, delicious food (some better than others), and all the fine meat preparations as advertised! Noisy atmosphere but we were seated just off the main area in a quiet adult only zone, just perfect! Our only complaint on the food was the enormous amount of added salt apparent on most of the meat dishes. Wow! Other than that, if you haven't experienced the environment, it is a must try....but don't eat all day until this meal!

    Fogo de Chao has been our go to restaurant for special occasions for years. This time and the time before it was way too noisy. Both times we sat next to a screaming child. I love kids but not when you're having a pretty expensive dinner. The meat did not come out as fast and wasn't as tasty as usual. A year ago I would have given all fives.

    WE enjoyed our selves as usual. The only thing that was wrong was when we were asked if we were celebrating was said yes; then we were offered a dessert we said now we were full and the one server said it would be on the house ans we could take it with us. So we ordered a dessert and it was not on the house it was on our bill. Now it wasn't a huge deal but if they offer a free dessert it should be free not on our check. We didn't complain I'm sure it was a mix up next time we will say no we felt that we would have looked crazy to complain about something as little as a dessert.

    We often visit when we are in the area. Usually it is a great experience. This time not so much. The service was lacking. We had to ask several times for items. The cuts of meet were not the temperature we asked for. It was very loud in the restaurant on this particular visit. Needless to say we were let down and didn't enjoy our visit this time.

    This is a great spot to try if you're new to dallas or haven't been to something like this, but the price is not worth the actual meal. I could have had a even nicer meal at a super fancy steak house for less than what we paid here for just average food, overcooked meats and okay service. We won't be going back.

    When you go to Fogo de Chao, you know that you're going to be eating lots of meat. What you don't know is that the serving staff an offer a little personal flair to the experience. Our server in particular offered a jalapeño and onion veggie medley that was very flavorful and spicy. We found out about it while conversing with your server as the meal was winding down but next time, we'll have him bring it out at the beginning so we can enjoy it with the bounty of meat. Oh and when the extra juicy meat expresses itself on your shirt, don't sweat it. They'll have someone come to your table and help clean you up right there. Embarrassing, maybe but the shirt will live to see another day if you let them help you. Bon appetite!

    Took my girlfriend here for our2 year anniversary and she loved it! I was very impressed myself. The salad bar has endless options for everyone but don't get full on the salad! As soon as we were ready for the meat, we were bombarded with every cut of steak and chicken that you would dream of. Personally my favorite was the filet mignon. It melted in my mouth. Overall I would definitely come back. Well worth the money.

    amazing salad bar, carnivore heaven, they keep bringing food. Lots of service from different people. But I wouldn't call it personal. The initial server asked if it was our first time and we indicated it was. He said he would try to make it fun for us then. Rarely saw him again. He didn't tell us what the two sauces were on the table or the unusual bread or other dishes that were served or show us the more extensive description of meats on our table which we found at the end of the meal. Felt we were being rushed through as quick as possible. Some of the guys serving the meat were almost running. Most $ ever spent for 2 people to have dinner. But, I recommend you try it once and/or for a special occasion.

    Food was awesome. Salad bar was fresh, tasty with lots of unique choices. Servers were very attentive. My only complaint is the table for four was rather small for the four of us with our drink and water glasses, bread bowl, sides from the kitchen, etc. we had to constantly rearrange and kept bumping into each other's items. It left little room for the servers to place their skewers with meat. Above all, we had a delightful evening.

    The dinner was absolutely the best! The wait staff was always there but not overbearing. The food was plentiful and hot. We could not have asked for a better evening. The Opeinging and Oerations Manager from Corporate, Cesar Montesinos, was assisting the staff and what a great personality he has! Just a super evening with friends and customers.

    I've tried all the Brazilian steakhouses in Dallas and Fogo is the BEST, hands down. While all the others have meat and salad bars and Gauchos, I believe Fogo is the best because the meat seems to be of a higher quality and it's seasoned and prepared better than any of it's competitors.

    We have been to Fogo de Chao many times, however this time we thought tables were too close to each other and service was rushed. We waited for bread for at least 20 minutes. Other complimentary brazillian entrees didnt arrive later after we started eating. Comparing to Texas Brazil, their salad buffet and side items were weaker.

    Fofo de Chao is a favorite when I am visiting cities where they have a restaurant. The salad bar alone is worth the price of admission! Best tabouli I have ever eaten! It was a busy Saturday night, so a bit noisy, but still the food was just excellent, staff attentive and we had a great experience. I will eat there again.

    ...bar where I served myself. Our party of eight spent half the time trading 'worst restaurant experiences ever' stories since that's the sort of service we received at Fogo that evening. This is a place where prompt, unobtrusive but attentive service is what makes the event possible. When, instead, you need to crane your neck trying to signal anyone to please clear a plate, refill the water, provide eating utensils and, yes, please notice the green cards which means we would like some meat goes largely ignored it doesn't recommend the restaurant. We won't be coming back soon.

    Had been to this style restaurant in Brazil and was excited to find Fogo de Chao while in town for the weekend. Went with my wife, son and his fiancée. We had a wonderful time. The service great. If we wanted a specific meat, just mentioning it to one of the gaucho's was all it took. Next thing you knew, there it was. The wait staff was very responsive. They keep replenishing the cheese bread just so we'd have it warm. Will have to plan another trip to Plano just to go here!

    Server lacks professionalism. Maybe it was an unusually crowded night, but properly and respectfully picking up/placing down silverwares would not be a bad practice to work on. When asked for a specific meat to be brought by, he would just went back to his corner. Maybe he was just an outlier.
