    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.

    Seen better choices at salad bar. Meat parade was tasty. It was about $100/person with a drink. Been there done that probably won't do it again...I think rather spend it at a steak house.

    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.

    It's not fine dining/blow your socks off, but everything is tasty and good quality. It's all you can eat, so if the men in your life like a big eat, this is a good place to take them. Not great for vegetarians or pescetarians.

    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!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 8/26/2014
    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

    Great food - salad bar fresh and delish, meat tender, well marinated - to great service, ending with a surprise (to the upside!) of a free dessert thrown in to make the evening that much more special. Thank you for the good food and the extra attention to the special event in our lives.

    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.

It was definitely well worth the money and money well-spent, especially during restaurant week. I'm hoping they will join again for the winter restaurant week so I can bring more members of my family back with me!!!

    Fogo de Chao is a great experience. The salad bar is huge and the meats are a great quality and unlimited. The rodizio service style keep sit fun and interesting. A little pricey but for a special occasion or if you can take advantage of a deal it's well worth it.

    Fogo De Chao is a great choice for Restaurant Week. The salad bar is extensive and everything is fresh. When it comes to the meat it is either a complete hit or miss. For instance the top sirloin was unbearably salty but the lamb was so succulent. The desserts were nothing special and should have been refrigerated for longer but they weren't meant to be the center of attention anyway. Just make sure to try all the meats so one knows what he or she prefers. Overall worthy of a trip.

    Basically, one of the best meals I can remember. And during restaurant week! Every single one of the meats that I tried was absolutely on point (though a piece of parmesean steak had a little too much fat to it, the rest of it was awesome), and the bacon-wrapped chicken was probably my favorite. The salad bar was excellent and expanisve - a perfect compliment to the main dishes. And the desserts were small and light, a great way to wrap things up. A bit pricey to visit outside of restaurant week, but maybe for my birthday! Definitely recommended.

    Enjoyed the food but was a bit disappointed when I asked one of the hostesses if we can have rack of lamb too but told us that it's not available for restaurant week and if we want it, we should come back as a "regular dinner guest". Kind of a weird response but I tried not to think much of it. I've been to Fogo de Chao in Philadelphia a few times and NYC's definitely was just as delicious. The service was great other than that odd comment by that hostess. Servers were great and food was delicious! Love Fogo de Chao!

    My boyfriend and came here for my birthday during restaraunt week. It was all around a great experience. It wasn't your typical sit down dinner, it was much more enjoyable and lively. We both loved being able to try a variety of different meats as well as the delicious salad bar that we were able to visit often. The staff was very accommodating and attentive which made the experience that much more special. I would definitely reccomend fogo de chao to anyone looking for a great restaraunt and a great time . It was a wonderful place and I am looking forward to visiting again soon!

    I have been to a few different Fogo de Chao across the country and the food and the service are always amazing. The staff was very friendly. Most people wouldn't think about going to a steakhouse if they are vegetarian, but the salad bar is amazing. As a vegetarian myself, I would definitely recommend this place (as long as you are not bothered by having meat around you). And make sure to try their lemonade; it is amazing.

    To begin with the decor and restaurant is absolutely beautiful for an upscale steakhouse. From hostess to waitor the attention is remarkable. Now the food- we went during restaurant week so I don't feel bad paying $25 for what we got for lunch . There isn't feijoada which is a Brazilian staple, the black beans offered don't even come close. They place 4 items on the table as you make your way to the salad bar. No fruits offered at all. Overall not a bad place, you pay for location not the food. There are plenty of brazilian restaurants that have same, if not Better authentic food.
