    We did a double date here just to try Fogo. We have all tried Texas De before this dinner and were curious of the difference. This place has waiters EVERYWHERE. Every time you think you want something there's someone to help you. The food is just as great as Texas De but what sets Fogo apart is how over the top the service is. There was even a waiter who would spot and point servers to tables where the green card was showing to ensure you get served. I can't believe this place even took part in the Magical Dining and was so incredibly priced.

  • Disappointing Experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    The service was excellent, other than that, the experience was disappointing as compared with similar restaurants. The salad bar was not diverse and the meats were under-seasoned. Also, the dessert choices were boring...perhaps a selection of ethnically inspired choices would have been more appropriate.

    This was the most perfect meal ever! The salad bar is the most fresh & complete salad bar I have ever encountered. The side dishes are to die for (especially the crispy polenta & caramelized bananas) couldn't get enough. Let alone the variety of meats that are carved at your table. I can honestly say that I experienced the epitome of pure taste bud euphoria!! Just take care not to do what we did.... ate too much ;-D

    I have always wanted to try a Brazilian steak house. This was my first time. The servers are very attentive. The food was fair. I enjoyed the experiance but I don't think I would ever go again. I would recommend you go for the experience but not for the food, for the price per person The Capital Grille or Ruth's Chris food is so much better.

    This is my favorite Brazilian steakhouse in the Orlando area. The salad bar has a wide range of selections, but don't fill up on that! The meat choices are plentiful. Every selection tasted was well seasoned and unlike at some other restaurants the seasons were all different and you could actually tell the meats apart. The parmesan crusted chicken was cooked to perfection. The leg of lamb was melt in your mouth good. The seasonings on the house special are amazing. The wait staff is attentive, always making sure you have everything you need, but not overbearing. One of the best parts, they participate in the Orlando Magical Dining Deals! Can't beat that price!

    We highly enjoyed going here 3 nights ago. The salad bar is good but the meats are outstanding. There are 16 different cuts of meet that come by your table and we enjoyed ALL the different meats not one meat did we not enjoy. The service is also first class so I highly recommend a dinner at Fogo de Choa.

    If you have a great appetite, is a place for you, because for a fixed price of 50$ more or less, you can eat all the meat you wont. But if you eat normaly like us, it became more expensive. After all, a good place and a very good meat.

    Dinning with Fogo De Chao is always a great experience, Orlando is no exception. The staff is extremely attentive!! Warning!!! When you flip the disk to green hold on, its causes a whirlwind of chiefs to surround you with some of finest hand carved meats you will ever taste! As someone who travels for a living I have dined at 16 US locations AND 4 in Brazil. I promise you won't be disappointed!!!!

    this restaurant is good, I personally think texas de brazil is a little better but it has the same concept. the food at the salad bar was ok, the meats they served around was good, luckly not saltly like texas de brazil can be, but in all it was a good out of town restaurant.

    I have been to several Fogo de Chao restaurants in different cities. No doubt is a great chain and the one in Orlando stands pretty well. There are few meet options that are normally included in Rodizio but were not included in this restaurant as chicken hearts, grilled pineapple & the fleshy part of the cow neck called in portuguese cachago. Those are a must in real Brazilian rodizio

    The description says it all. Texas de Brazil knocks this spot off the map! Food selection was not as robust, salad bar was LACKING tremendously, and meat was so so. The service and mango cocktail were great though...but that's not why you come here.

    On vacation in Orlando and looking for something new and different. Searching International Drive and after seeing old favorites Vito's Chophouse and Moonfish, stumbled on Fogo de Chao. It was fabulous. I made reservations easily and with two of my best friends, had an absolutely wonderful experience. The salad bar is amazing...I could have just made several trips there and been fine, but the table service meats were superb. Cooked perfectly, served perfectly and totally enjoyable, melt in your mouth flavors. Put this restaurant on your "to try" list!

    We went to Orlando for our wedding anniversary and wanted to something new and different. This was the place that we picked, after reading many reviews before we went we had high expectations for a Awesome Night and Awesome Food. They were all right on the money. we spent $150 for the 2 of us, had a ton of food, drinks, and an awesome desert. there was so much food to choose from as there is a salad bar for all you can eat, but wait stop hold it a minute. dont fill up toooo much as the meat will come from everywhere and as long as you keep the green button on they will bring you more and more and more so remember to change it to red when you have enough. Enjoy We did and it was Awesome!!! Thank you Fogo de Chao for an Awesome Night!!!

    We have been travelling to Orlando for 20 years and each time we go we try something different. This place was well worth the visit and we will be going again. Little bit more pricey than your average meal in Orlando but the food and service were excellent so well worth it. It cost us about $300 for a meal for 4 adults inc drinks & tip (no dessert - too full to eat anything else !!). Excellent service from Carlo. On the evening we went there was a private party in a side room. They did join the queue for the salad bar in the main room this did cause a delay which didnt affect us but I think this could have been managed better. Overall though, I loved this place and will make sure it is on our list for places to eat for our next trip.
