    Dined on 9/27/2014
    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!

    I hosted a birthday dinner for may husband. We all loved it! It was very authentic and just like steakhouses in Brazil. All of the meats served by the Gouchos were perfect! They even offered choices from rare to well. The Pao de queijo served was just as if it had been made in Brazil. They even had my favorite Brazilian beverage, Guarana soda. My vegetarian guests also raved about the offerings that they had. Most of all everyone was very welcoming and friendly. I can't wait to go back!

    The food is plentiful and tastes delicious. The service is quick and impeccable. It was pretty crowded on a Friday night, had to wait in long line for the valet parking. The noise was also a bit much, our conversation at the table slowed when we were yelling instead of talking. All in all though a good experience.

Management also visited our table to insure the service an food quality. The salad bar was fresh with an excellent variety of items. Throughout the meal the service was timely and consistant. Yes, we would certainly go back. They also have complimetary valet parking. It was a fun evening.

    I had a food experience, using the Magical Dining promotion. Although not all the meats are offered during this promotion, you will still get your fill of food. Between the meat that is brought tableside to the large salad bar selection you will not go hungry. My only disappointment was the lack of enforcement of the dresscode. The website lists one, however there were people in cut off shorts and tube tops. I was trying to have a nice, romantic birthday dinner and was rather off put by this. However I did not allow this to dampen my dining experience. The food was great, service was great!!

    Been to Fogo de Chao many times and the food quality and variety is excellent. Great for hearty eaters. On this last visit, the service was disappointing - you never really know who your waiter is (as they work more as a team) and seldom had anyone checking back with us. I feel that since we didn't order liquor (higher bill) that we weren't given the attention that neighboring tables received.

    This was a very disappointing dining experience. We have eaten at Fogo before and had a much better experience than we did this time. Upon arrival we were told that they were running behind with reservations and there were 6 other reservations waiting to be seated before ours. We patiently waited until the four of us were placed at our table. We informed our waiter that we would be dining under the Magical Dining menu and were told to help ourselves to the salad bar. Overall the salad bar was descent but the meats had absolutely no flavor, it took forever to obtain meats, we asked the server several times for additional sides and did not receive a positive response and had to ask several times for our drinks to be refilled.

    We went with another couple to celebrate our anniversary; which I did state in our reservation. It wasn't mentioned by a hostess or server. It was a very busy Saturday night but the staff seemed flustered and not particularly attentive. Not once was I asked if I wanted another cocktail. The food was Ok; nothing memorable. Having been to another Brazilian steakhouse in the area (several times) I definitely wouldn't recommend this restaurant over the other.

    Service was attentive, but remember to turn your card to red when you want to take a rest from eating that delicious meat! I like my meat very rare and servers were most accomodating to bring back rare if they did not have it on their skewer. They were also efficient about bringing specific meats upon request. The sides (we especially love the rolls, polenta sticks and bananas they bring to the table) and salad bar items are delicious, tempting and plentiful, so be careful not to fill up so much that you can't try all the meats that you want.

    Prior to my visit to Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse, my only experience with a Brazilian steakhouse was Texas de Brazil. Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse is smaller, therefore cozier. The salad bar is great. The selection of meat was great. And the service was also great. At no time were we unattended, but also not smothered. I highly recommend Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse!
