A word from Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Philadelphia
Fogo de Chão® (fo-go dèe shoun), is an authentic Southern Brazilian steakhouse. In 1979, Fogo® began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 16 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service.

We invite you to enjoy the delicious preparations of our gaucho chefs along with our gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.Continued

  • "We were seated right away, and we liked our location. All the meats presented were excellent. They were each at our preferred degree of doneness, and never dried out. The service was very attentive and we never had to wait for anything. The salad bar was excellent as well, the best we've ever experienced in this type of restaurant. All in all a very pleasurable evening"

  • "This is my third time at this restaurant. There is no other dining experience like this one. Not only have I never had steak prepared this well my entire life, but the service is absolutely incredible !! You will never have to look around for help because they have a staff of about 4 people per table. One person spends the entire night refilling your drinks, another making sure you don't need additional ordering, another to simply make sure you always have fresh sides, and another to come by and pick up any little plate or food that has spilled on the table. It is not super quite so it's great for dates because there is always something to talk about or look at (helps break the ice). Amazing."

  • "We were surprised when they had no regular coffee at 6:00pm and could offer only decaf. Seems like they could have sent somebody out for coffee but they didn't."

  • "I definitely enjoyed Fogo. Everything I ate my cooked to perfection. I will say it was quite nosy though, but that was because it was super crowded. Also, I wouldn't recommend it to those skinny chicks that eat a half a sandwich for lunch, because, for the price ypu are paying, you'd better be eating a lot to make it worth it!"

  • "Fogo de Chao was a disappointment for me and most of the members in my party. We were a party of 6 - 4of us had previously been to Fogo and 2 had not. The 2 who had not were impressed, especially since they have never before been to a resturant of this type. The 4 of us that have been here before were under-whelmed. The meat was overcooked 95% of the time. It was burnt, dry and flavorless. The only thing on the menu that was worth eating was the filet - I had 2 pieces. I won't be seen here again. The hostess was nice and the waiter was ok."

  • "Our son requested Fogo de Chao for his birthday dinner since he had heard about it but never had been there. It lived up to his expectations and then some. The service was excellent. If you asked for a special cutoff meat they made sure the waiter with that skewer showed up very soon. If they didn't have a rare enough cut on the skewer, they returned quite quickly with one. Great salad bar and all of the meats were excellent, tender and tasty. Big open dining room and was somewhat noisy but did not take away from a very enjoyable dinner. Use the valet parking ($18) as finding parking nearby can be a challenge, especially on a rainy day like when we attended."

  • "If your into just eating a ton of meat then this is the place. at $54 a person the bill can get high with drinks and dessert very fast. but the all you can eat meat really makes up for it, we are not speaking buffet heat lamp been out all day meat we are talking right off the fire grill cut to how you like it. the servers just walking around is awesome like sure ill try that."

  • "I have been to many Brazilian Steakhouses, but this one was the best. The wine specials were well priced and the wait-staff all were very helpful and fun throughout the evening. The salad bar was great and for most people the meats were cooked to their liking. A few folks liked their meat very rare, and it took some communication to get their meat (un)cooked as they liked it. Otherwise a wonderful time - great for groups of people."

  • "More meat than a meat market! All well cooked and well served. Great salad bar. As the evening went on the noise level became Very high. The servers English was difficult Especially when noise level was high. Fun (expensive) evening occasionally."

  • "The food is great but I 'm not writing this review to talk about about the food. Its great. You will be offered more than you could consume in a week and a large, quality variety. I suggest going slow and taking bits and pieces of each cut. The reason I continually leave Fogo in a daze is that the service is so insanely impressive. You truly will be attended to by each employee and they are all masters of their craft."

  • "Went to Fogo de Chao for a special occasion and the restaurant did not disappoint. Elegant setting, excellent gourmet sald bar, but of course, being a true Brazilian Churrascaria, the meat dishes were the highlight. They kept coming, one better than the next. I will definitely return."

  • "Our first time at this particular Brazilian Steakhouse. Salad bar was good but not nearly the variety of other similiar steakhouses. Tables are far too close together - and the gauchos & servers are constantly running back and forth between the tables - making you feel very cramped. While the gouchos are constantly asking you if you would like what they have, we were only offered about half of what's on the menu. But were able to request what we wanted 2 or 3 times. But I never saw about 3 or 4 items on the menu. The quality of the meat was good - but not great. Unless I missed it, they don't offer you any sauce for the meat. Service was the best thing. Very attentive. Dessert was so-so. Valet was excellent. In and out very quickly."

  • "Arrived early, sat at the bar until we were seated at 5:30pm. Very nice bartender but handled too many things with bare hand while slicing fruit and stocking bar top with olives, cherries, lemons,limes ,pineapple etc.The prepare salad bar was good and black beans and rice were good but the cheese bread was outstanding. The meat selection was okay and certainly filling. I wish they offered a little more in the way of grilled seafood , chicken livers, chicken hearts etc like an authentic brazillian steak house . They publicize 15 cuts of meat but I was only able to confirm 7 during my 2 hours at the restaurant."
