    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!

    We went to Fogo de Chao during restaurant week. We were seated immedately. The dining room was busy, but our waiter was both gracious and attentive. 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!

    The restaurant has a great vibe but is certainly not intimate. The waiters are attentive and the fresh cut meats are abundant and quickly served. There is no skimping on the Salad Bar which could be a meal in itself with everything from smoked salmon to fresh asparagus along with a giant bowl of fresh parmesan. We enjoyed the Magical Dining menu which only limits some of the filet cuts but still offers more than one can eat. All in all a fun evening.

    We had a 7:30 reservation. When we arrived we were told it was going to be at least 30 minutes as they were overbooked. There was a gentleman there who's reservation was for 7pm and he was still waiting at 7:45 when we decided to leave. Why make a reservation if your going to have to wait almost a hour to be seated? How do you overbook when it's a online reservation with specific times?We were really looking forward to our first experience here but will never return unless there reservation situation is rectified.

    Magical Dining Event. Wanted to try the Brazilian steakhouse concept. When seated, asked if we wanted Prix Fixe or the regular meal. Four higher end meats were not included in the Prix Fixe meal - filet mignon, lamb chops, del monico and a fourth. The online menu did not disclose this fact. Other restaurants were pretty clear about their offerings. Fugo listed meats in their native name which we did not understand, but expected a full experience given the concept of the restaurant. Very deceptive and underhanded to leave out such an important fact. Restaurant was noisy, service was terrible. Asked multiple times for the meats on the menu In addition, key lime pie came with a hair imbedded in it-really topped it off. VERY POOR CHOICE!

    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.

    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.
