    I have been to Sao Paolo many times and always go for Brazilian BBQ while there, including Fogo de Chao. I can guarantee that their NY restaurant is 100% authentic and 100% excellent. Great salad bar, great meat and great service. Highly recommended!! Had their house red (malbec) last time at lunch - also quite good.

    For beef lovers a Brazilian barbeque is a must and therefore as the best its type Fogo de Chao is a must. Even if your not an absolute beef lover the atmosphere and unique style of cooking and serving make it a fun place to experience. It is classy without being stuffy. The wait staff is polite and attentive.

    Went here for my birthday and I absolutely loved it. The salad bar was filled with different types of meats and cheeses, which were all fantastic. The proscuitto was on point. For the main course, I was a fan of the rib eye, filet mignon, and lamp chops. The sirloin, chicken, and leg of lamb were alright. I like my steaks medium-rare and usually I got it medium-rare, but on occasion some of the cuts I got were a bit too cooked, but since it's all you can eat anyways you can just toss it to the side and just keep ordering. I'm not sure why they had some meats cooked medium-well to well done. No one should be eating steak cooked more than medium, just my 2 cents. Other than that, great place, will come back again soon!

    I have been to other brazilian churrascaria, so I can do comparison. Fogo de Chao overall is under expectation. The salad bar selection has A LOT less offerings. They don't tell you in advance that they charge additional $24 for shrimp cocktail (only 5 shrimps - way over priced!) In the other brazilian churrascaria I've been to, the shrimp cocktail is included in the salad bar selection, you get as many as you want. The meat offering I'd say is probably about the same. They don't tell you in advance that there is a complimentary dessert. We have two people dining, and we only ordered one so we missed out on one more complimentary dessert. We totally don't like way that they don't tell you what's extra what is included in advance!!

    I went to Fogo on a Wednesday night with high expectations of delicious grilled food. The highlight of the night however was the Salad Bar and the Side Dishes, neither of which were worth the high prices of this restaurant. While there was plenty of grilled meat options most were unappetizing (my boyfriend couldn't get over the gaminess and smokiness of the meat all night regardless of what he drank or ate). If you are looking for a Brazilian steakhouse experience this is not the place to go. While service was WONDERFUL, the food really fell short of the hype on their website.

    I have been Fago de Chao in Atlanta for many times and was looking forward to have it here in the City. It is the traditional Brazilian restaurant where you have a card on your table one side is green the other side is red, and as long as your card is green, they come around with the different meats. Cut after cut of beef are more tender and juicy than you could have hoped for. Chicken, pork, sausage, and other following meat were no let downs. My favorite ones are Picanha, Filet Mignon and Alcatra... Their salad bar is amazing too... In short if you are true meat lover, this is the place you would like to go.

    This churrascaria is amazing . . . from the fresh, appealing salad bar to the never ending served meats. It also comes with wonderful, friendly service. Turning your card over to red is supposed to give you a break from the serving waiters but if your dining companion doesn't do the same then you're in for more offerings, like it or not and it's hard to say no.

    This restaurant is perfect for meat-loving foodies… The staff is extremely friendly, courteous and helpful. The service was prompt, and the meat tastes fantastic. It's a Brazilian style buffet… in other words, you pick your salad and sides, and they just keep bringing different cuts of meat until you're full and you give up. The only tiny little downside is that they say they'll bring 16 cuts of meat, but they ended bringing say about… 8 or 9 types and repeating those a few times. So by the time we gave in, we started seeing em bring other things we would have liked but we were already too stuffed. Other than that little snafu, it was fantastic.

    This was my first time at the restaurant which I learned opened on November 2013. Very good ambiance, beautiful place, meat of very good quality. Service could be a bit more attentive, specially from the waiters bringing the meat cuts. Towards the end of our meal, we felt like they really wanted us to leave so they could use the table, and we had been at the restaurant only for an hour. Anyway, food was good, I might consider returning.

    For a price of $59.50 per person one gets to eat "all you can" from salad bar (wonderful and plenty of choices) and sixteen cuts of meat ( beef, pork, lamb, chicken and sausage). This also includes three side dishes. Great idea, however for someone who does not eat much, it seems "not cost effective" and unfortunately there is no alternative. So... come very hungry, eat slowly (there is no "rush" feeling at all) and enjoy!

    We were very disappointed with the quality of the meat served, at what is primarily a meat-focused menu. The salad bar was terrific -- we should have stayed with that! Of course, very pricey for just a salad bar! of the meat items we sampled, the chicken was the only stand-out. The quality of the meats served, combined with little exceptional seasoning left us very disppointed,

    My wife and I have dined at Fogo de Chao in other cities, but not yet at this new franchise in Manhattan. We had absolutely wonderful dining experiences at the Fogo de Chao in Atlanta, so we made reservations here on our anniversary. The service was impeccable, and the ambience and overall environment were very good. Unfortunately, the food itself wasn't quite as good as what we had in Atlanta. There wasn't as much variety in terms of cuts of meat and the salad bar wasn't as large and diverse. It was still very good, but I'm not sure we'd return to the New York restaurant for a churrascaria experience. It's not that they did anything wrong, but others do it better.

    Fogo de Chao is a physically beautiful, large but warm space. It is a churrascaria, a Brazilian meat restaurant. It starts with an OK salad bar (if I would recommend one thing, it is to improve the salad bar - good but nothing special), but the meal gets much better when the churrascaria begins to be served. Delicious! The wine list is an fine menu of South American, primarily Argentinian wines - why no Brazilian?, and the service is good, if a bit hurried. Seafood is non-existent; go only if you want meat - beef, lamb, pork. It has a bit of the chain flavor to it, not enough of the personal touches that make a New York restaurant experience so special. but it is a fine place for a steak meal, and a good place for a pretheatre meal

    I went here for Restaurant Week Summer 2014. The food was great- nice salad bar selection and freshly grilled meats (I think it helped that we were seated near the kitchen). The servers seemed a little lost, as we had to ask them multiple times for a wine list, but overall the service was pretty good. I would definitely return.
