    This place never disappoints. Always on target and always great. There was one of our waiters that came by and would do a "borat" spin on his speak. "Try the bacon wrapped filet...it's nice!" fantastic...as I am a Borat fan.

    Fogo de Chao is certainly a carnivore's dream, but includes a great salad bar as well. The food is dependably good. On the night we were there, however, they had run out of the wine we wanted to purchase a bottle of, and that was disappointing. It was early in the evening, and early in the month, you would think they would have had enough. At any rate, the dinner was still good. If you want variety, go to Fogo. If you want a really great steak, however, go to a steakhouse.

    Fogo de Chao is the only Brazilian steak house to eat at in the Kansas City area. The cuts of meat are tender and seasoned deliciously. Service for meats was good but a bit slower than their norm. The salad bar is amazing! And for those who are gluten free they know exactly what you can and can't have. One item you can eat, the amazing rolls! Yep Gluten free!! Love them! A yummy place to dine for special occasions!

    We arrived early but were seated right away. Service was great and after learning the ropes from our waiter we hit the salad bar. Pace yourself as the number of selections is many and one could fill up before the entree. All the beef, sausage and fowl were wonderful and our gauchos cut off our portions cooked the way we liked. It's a great experience for a protein overload. I'll be back.

    First time I have ever been here and I was not disappointed! I made reservations for 6:30 for my boyfriends birthday and was seated as soon as we told them we had a reservation. The waiters work together to help you, reviewed how the restaurant works and even help the ladies by pushing in your chair as you sit down. You can go up to the salad bar as much as you want, I would recommend just once so you have lots of room for the main course! There were very few people when we first sat down so the food was arriving quickly! So many choices. If you are a meat eater this is a sure place for you to go! If you liked a meat and wanted it again and they we not walking around, just ask a waiter and it will be brought right out to you!

    I live in St Louis and we made the day trip to KCMO just to experience this restaurant. We got there right as it opened for lunch and the staff immediately made us feel as if it was just the two of us throughout the full 2 hours we stayed. They were attentive without being intrusive; they treated us like we were old friends, light teasing, encouraging us to try new things and willing to make the ordinary special, like adding fruit garnishes to a soft drink glass. My girlfriends were impressed and we can't wait to plan another trip to this wonderful restaurant. We loved the salad bar and the floral arrangement was so tastefully done. Wish one would open in St Louis or St Charles.

    The meat is cooked very well and they have a few choices. I am a pickier eater so the salad bar only has a few things I like but I don't want to fill up on that anyhow. All the desserts are fabulous. (I almost visit more for the dessert than the meal, almost.) Be ready to spend $150-$200 for 2 people.

    I was referred to this restaurant by my boss for a place to take my lady (now fiancee) to dinner. The environment, food, and service was great. The salad bar was well-kept and quiet a variety of side dishes. The service was friendly, yet we didn't have a fixed waitress so when it was time to leave I didn't know who I should leave my cash-tip too so I assume everyone split the pot once the restaurant closed. The assortment of meats that were brought to our table was full of flavor and just delicious. It was quite a unique experience. You have to flip a coaster from red to green, when it is on the green side the servers will bombard with you food until you flip it back over. Great place for couples, groups and the kids.

    Wonderful celebration for my son's college graduation. We were seated immediately. We brought our own cake and they graciously offered to refrigerate it for us. Minor complaint was there were certain cuts of meat we requested and it took quite a while for them to bring it over. Then they never brought those cuts back again... Food was wonderful though.

    We expected something a little different for Mother's Day brunch. The only breakfast item on the buffet was a vat of crispy bacon. While we enjoyed that, and the normal charuscarria, we were disappointed there were no breakfast items, no fresh fruit, no omelet bar, etc. We paid the normal dinner price, which made the lack of brunch food even more frustrating.

    Recommend going for lunch instead of dinner due to cost. Feel it would be better for groups than just a two people, as there is so much meat to try. Fairly quiet atmosphere and they stress eat at your own pace, which was nice. Desserts of Creme Brulee and Flan were very good.

    THe food was fantastic. The service was nonstop. There is something for everyone. The salad bar is the best I've seen anywhere. A word of caution, however. Soda refills are 2.95 each, and they don't tell you. We were quite surprised to see almost $20 on our bill just for Diet Coke. It's especially annoying since our refills left coming without us requesting them.

    Way too much for a hungry big eater like me to sample everything. Now, that's out of the way. The baby New Zealand lamb chops were the best I have ever eaten, as were the plain old hearts of palm on the salad bar. Also particularly good: the Tuscan salami, the Spanish manchego, the kale/orange/red onion salad, the shrimp marinated with celery and mango slivers. And my champagne and elderflower liquer cocktail! The Key lime pie was tasty but not what Southerners would call Key lime pie. However, the creme brulee, also a Deep South specialty, was excellent and generous. After a bit, the meats began to blend together on my palate but one, a crispish on the outside beef, was particularly tender and flavorful. Excellent service.
