    Food is great - salad bar is very large and the servers are very quick - the second you turn over your card, they immediately come over with their racks of meat. The manager came over several times and asked how we were doing and if there was a specific dish or meat dish we were waiting for. Great service - from the hostess to the valet guys.

    The service is excellent. The manager walks around ensuring everyone is satisfied. Of course the food is great....I always have a hard time not eating too many of those cheesy bread appetizers. The salad bar and polenta are tasty too. My friend from Brazil loves this place and enjoys speaking Portuguese and Spanish to the servers.

    I am always a fan of the restsurant nationwide. This was my first time to eat at this Denver location and found totally disappointed. The most disappointed was to find the most well known jumbo sized asparagus was no not available here. They instead served tiny asparagus "unwashed" - with sands (not only me found it, but also my two other guests). It would be a place not worth to go for any price, not to speak of their pricy menu.

    Our son flew in from Detroit on business, and he had never been to a Brazilian steakhouse. We were treated to a special ocasion, and we all left well pleased. The meats came in an endless supply, and the quality matched the quantity. Service was attentive but not intrusive. A good experience.

    We travel a lot and also go to a FOGO if available. This was the worst hands down. The salad bar looked as though the items had been sitting out for hours. All the meat was burnt..! I prefer well done but this was way beyond that! Even the sides were overly cooked! Only thing that was decent the papaya and cream. Very disappointed with this FOGO as we just moved to Denver from Dallas where the FOGO was wonderful in every way! Hope we can find another Brazilian steakhouse.

    Great service. I've been here before and to the local Braziliian steakhouse competitors on multiple occasions.. Fogo has the best service. Too bad there were no chicken hearts but everything else was great. No wait time for seating (res at 830 on a Friday night).

    The salad bar is very good - excellent quality of the food, although it's a lacking variety. The meats are all excellent, especially against their local contemporaries (Texas de Brazil and Rodizio) due to their meats aren't as salty. They also do a better job of offering different meat temperatures (people in our group prefer anywhere from bloody-rare to medium-well-to-well). Service was good throughout the meal, but after they drop off the check, they treat you as a hologram - you almost have to trip the primary server to get his attention for drink refills, getting change for cash, or to run the credit cards. Isn't this the time when they especially want to be attentive - when you're making the final decision on tip???

    We had read another review that said they only got 4 different meats for the restaurant week but we had 8 meats and felt like it was comparable to the regular menu at this restaurant. The salad bar is excellent and one of our diners went back for seconds. The meat was tasty and they were accommodating about bringing back the ones we liked best. Also brought mint jelly for the lamb which was great.

    I am a frequent diner at fogo, and also work in the upscale food service industry. I know it is restaurant week and have lax for the week. We were slightly rushed after buying 120 bottle of wine, and cocktails/ports and ice wines for appropriate courses. Being in the industry i thought the servers might pick up on not rushing our table with what we ordered. Only issue I've ever experienced. I still recommend fogo to anyone that wants the best value for your money while still having an excellent dinner and experience!

    This is not a place for a relaxing dinner - it was very loud and we seemed to be interrupted a lot - yes, I understand that was part of the experience, but seemed to be really close quarters for all the waiters running around - only received one side dish of potatoes during the evening for four people. Took quite awhile to get a mixed drink. Salad bar was good, but seemed to have a lot of "heavy dishes".

    Always good. The only issue that I can coment on is that we were seated at the first table outside the kitchen. At first I thought this was good because we would get first dibs coming out. Not the case. We had to stop the staff to get food. It almost seemed that thier goal was to get to the furthest point in the resaturant and make their way back to the kitchen. But, being 'all you can eat', we did manage to fill up. We even had dessert (extra charge) which was great!

    My wife and I went during restaurant week and I think there was a decline in service. We were told that we would get 8 out of the 16 meats they offer since we picked the restaurant week option. We only received about 4 meats and the service was less than stellar! I may go back to get a taste of all the meats.

    The place was packed and we had to wait for about 10 minutes after our reservation time to be seated, but once we were at our table everything was great. Their salad bar is amazing - so many choices! I probably would have enjoyed it more if I wasn't in line behind a family with small children who weren't good at keeping their hands out of things (thats the parent's fault, though). THe meats were very good, and the servers came very regularly. We left very full and happy.

    This wasas my first time at your restaurant but not my first experience at a Brazilian steakhouse. I found your dining room to be extremely loud. I could not comfortably have a conversation with my partner without repeating myself. The waitstaff was obviously overworked and seemed to scoff at our requests for more popovers. I did find the desert recommendation to be knowledgeable and accurate. On the advice of a server, we ordered the flan and enjoyed it immensely. I enjoyed the meat selection you had to offer but felt the salad area paled in comparison to other churrascaria restaurants I have experienced

    Compared to Rodizio and Texas de Brazil, Fogo was much louder on the inside, had less meat and salad bar selection, and we felt rushed. I'm not sure if the rushed feeling was because it was 5280. However, the food we ate was very delicious. It was a bonus that a few of the wait staff were actually Brazilian to help with menu selections and discuss the food. My mother-in-law is also Brazilian, so it makes her very happy to speak to others from her country.

    The service was over the top, as soon as we flip our circles to green we got a thousand of meat cuts. I personally loved the salad bar and the private parking, considering that is difficult to park downtown. My husband loved Fogo de Chao and our guest Aria too.

    Quite disappointed. I feel Texas De Brazil is far more superior. The meats @ Fogo were cooked or undercooked to extremes meaning way too dry or purple undercooked. The salad bar was not centrally located and had a few different items then Texas De Brazil. The volume in the room was very loud. The service was OK. The server said for restaurant week they don't split checks, what's the difference? They tack on the 18% gratuity, but once you are done with your food, there is not much follow up with beverages as our group continued talking. We had part of our party that need to leave early and we could not get the attention of the server to come and get their portion of the bill paid and then we had the same with the balance of the tab.

    No one can ever complain they didn't get enough to eat. The meat choices never stopped coming and the staff made sure you had it prepared exactly the way you wanted, even if they had to return to your table. The salad bar offers enough choices that even a picky eater could find plenty to enjoy including the various cheeses and meats. I ended the meal with a very generous slice of key lime pie which was delicious. I highly recommend this experience for everyone if you are lucky enough to get a reservation. This was my third try to get in on a Saturday evening. Enjoy!
