    Great service, excellently cooked meats of all varieties, fantastic surroundings ( a lot like a modern ballroom), you just have to check it out. My favorite turned out to be the bottom round sirloin, just great. The leg of lamb is a must try. There is an air of sophistication here and I would recommend this as a place to take people you really want to impress. The guests we took are still talking about it. It is just more than you could ever expect or want for around $50 a person. Where there is a temptation to compare this with other Brazilian steakhouses, this place really stands on its own. All of the servers work well together and make you feel special. I don't think you will have room for dessert but they look so good!

    Service was absolutely impeccable, couldn't fault it. Food was OK but IMO not as good as TDB just up the road. It was very noisy too with a table of guys disturbing the whole restaurant, when the bill for 2 folks is circa $150 you don't expect this sort of behavior. Lots of young children and babies too. Truthfully I wouldn't hurry back.

    the salad bar is not that special, the table side dishes are just ok, the meat wasn't really seasoned lots if cuts were just plain, its a shame because the customer service is 5 star all the waiters are amazing, but I will continue to go to the best Texas De Brazil! this place just doesn't compare to them

    I had been to the one in Miami and thought it was very good. Couldn't wait to go to the one in Orlando when I got home with some friends, took us a while to get our schedules to work and finally got there. The waiter was friendly liked him a lot but he just wasn't on top of things, and the meat people didn't make their rounds very good, we kept getting the same ones when we knew there were two types of ribs and there was lamb but those people never came to our table. When we asked for those foods they said yes they would send them and we never saw them. To expensive to have to ask for all the foods to make it your way, that is the whole point of the restaurant. Felt bad I hyped it all up and made my friends pay the price for the meal.

    Since the moment we walk in the service was fanstastic, the food was delicious , the meat and the salad bar. The waiter was very friendly and everyone was asking us if everything was good. I would definitely come back, after trying both brazilian steakhouses in the area, fogo de Chao is my favorite.

    I took some international business guests to Fogo de Chao and they thoroughly enjoyed the ambience and the food. The entertainment value of having a variety of select cuts of meat served to you fresh off of the grill spit should not be undervalued. This is a spot to visit every time I visit Orlando

    The woman at the dope was actually kinda rude and doesn't even welcome us and just Alex "reservation?" I said yes and she said, "there are the ahead of you, just wait over there." It doesn't look busy at all, but we waited. The bar area was beautiful and so was the actual restaurant! When we were seated, a handsome, funny young man came to the table and made us feel much better about being there. The salad bar had many different things to choose from (mozzarella and smoked salmon were awesome). Then came the meat. Those who served were a mix of pushy, arrogant and helpful. The manager came around and was very nice! Once we were full of some amazing meats, the check came. 3 meals, 2 waters and 1 come came to $158. Good food nonetheless.

    If you're a carnivore, this is the place to be. Come hungry, don't give into the yummy cheese rolls or the delicious salad bar with a variety of mashed potatoes. Enjoy lamb chops, sliced lamb, bacon wrapped filet, and many more. Save room for desert, mainly the chargrilled pineapple with caramelized sugar and ice cream or the fabulously fresh papaya cream with creme de cassis on top. Pro tip: mix the creme de cassis in and drink it with a straw. Do note, it's not inexpensive, so be sure to eat your money's worth.

    Never before have I been so impressed by a restaurant staff's enthusiasm to make sure its guests are completely happy. Even though we ate there on a Magical Dining Menu, the servers did not treat us any differently, as many tend to do. In fact, when we were (extremely politely) asked to scoot our chairs over a foot to make room for an additional table to the large party near us, although we were completely understanding and didn't think twice about it, the servers still offered us a free round of drinks on the house for our inconvenience. I like to see gracious guest behavior rewarded, rather than complaining. Yes, of course the food was outstanding (especially the lamb leg), but it's that kind of service that will keep me coming back.

    The food here is much less SALTY than Texas De Brazil. Because we went during the special Magical Orlando Dining experience (where the price was discounted) you didn't get all 16 varieties of meats and the salad bar was definitely less than what they have at Texas de Brazil and there were no soups. But the noise level was so loud that you couldn't hear the waiter. Very very very loud!

    Went here to celebrate my son's birthday - it was his special request. We all enjoyed a great dinner. Thought I would only enjoy the higher end cuts: ribeye and filet - but the way they cooked and seasoned their signature item which is a sirloin steak was outstanding. My husband and son also really enjoyed the ribs and the parmesan crusted pork. In addition to the great "team" approach to service our table was also visited by the manager. We requested some of the meats we had not been offered yet, and within 2 minutes they both appeared at the table. A nice addition was the complimentary dessert my son received for his birthday - delicious and big enough to share with others.

    The service here was way above and beyond! Before we were even seated, the hostess asked us if there were any dietary restrictions. My husband is allergic to nuts and we said so. The waiter confirmed the restriction and had the manager come to table to point out all the things on their menu/buffet that my husband should avoid. They did the same with dessert. The manager also stopped by multiple times through our dinner to confirm everything was ok. Requests of specific cuts of meat were satisfied quickly. Our water glasses were never less than half full. Aside from the great service, the food was just as good! Too bad I don't live in Orlando--I would come back often!

    We had such high hopes for this restaurant and then it quickly disappeared. The service was horrendous. No one filled our drink glasses or checked on our meal, we had to chase down someone when I needed a drink or wanted the check...So many waiters walking around but just walk right by your table. At one point I had to get up and walk behind the register to ask for our check and desert TO GO! I didn't want to sit their anymore. When the desert to go was brought to our table on the outside of the to go container was smeared with chocolate sauce. I looked at the waiter and asked him to clean off the to go container. Did they think I was going to walk out of the restaurant with sauce all over to get on my car and myself? So Disappointed!

    We visited during Magical Dining. I was able to secure a reservation for 8 a few hours before dining. We had three children in the party. They had a wonderful time...there was something for each one of them to eat. There were so many choices and all of the food was prepared exquisitely. Their Fogo Malbec was full bodied and tasty. Our server was quite attentive and made sure we didn't have to wait for anything. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone. We will definitely be back!
