    Very small dining room. Had to ask for certain meats never saw beef ribs till done with meal. Had to explain we wanted sauces for meat. Mashed potatoes and polenta sticks were always cold. Most meats had no flavor dry chicken. Forgot about bday on reservation and also on e coupon they sent . Valet parking high. Salad bar had few choices. White wine Sangria and Crème brulee were good! Try to get you to subliminally tip high starting at an 18% suggestion. Asked for a bag for bones to take for dog and was refused. Saw another table with a bag said only doggie bags were for unfinished desserts. Go to Chama Gaucha in the west burbs for the best churrasceria experience!

    Service was ok. Meat was bland except for the house special. Ribs were dry, chicken dry and meats were over cooked and bland, no flavor. Would rather save money and go to Morton's steak house or Gibsons and get a great tasting steak.

    When we arrived we we had a reservation, but we were seated in a room that was off the main dining room. Our waitress was absent most of the time we were there and when she did show up acted like she was being bothered having to wait on us. The salad bar looked like it had been picked over. The entire experience made me wonder what all the hype was all about. Needless to say we won't be back.

    Food was excellent and the meats were perfectly prepared!! The service was even better. The entire Fogo de Chao team was amazing. Our dinner was a little pricey, but well worth the money. We spent about $100 per person (which included an appetizer, bottle of wine, and cocktails). We will definately go back!

    I have eaten at many Fogo de Chao locations and this was probably the best. It is still not my favorite churrascaria by far, but a passable example of the experience. The meats here were well-prepared and plentiful, which is why I give high marks for the food. The salad/side dish bar was just OK - there were important items missing from the selection, and the presentation was sub-par. The atmosphere is big but not too loud. Our service was very attentive, which made the evening feel more like a fine dining experience instead of a tourist trap. Note that the contracted valet service requires payment in advance of $10 and couldn't care less about you beyond that. They were efficient, but didn't even hold a door open or say good evening.

    Very busy even on a Tuesday night, many big groups so definitely not a quiet romantic spot. The meat is delicious, but getting some of the cuts proved challenging, we had to ask for the lamb at least 3 times before it arrived.

    Food was excellent; however, we were at a table of 3 and seemed to be skipped most of the time because we were not a large table. If you are in a large group, every meat stops at your table; however, when you have a small table, they neglect you. Additionally, you do not have an "official" server. So if you need a drink or anything else, you just have to hope one of them decides to come by or flag one of them down. At one point, we had 3 servers come to our table asking if we needed anything in a 5 minute period. Then when we actually needed something, no one came by for 20 minutes, until we flagged one down. For $50 per person, I expect much better service.

    We chose Fogo de Chao to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. It's definitely pricier than we would normally choose, but for a special occasion it was fine. Everything was delicious, from the salad bar to the unlimited sides to each and every cut of meat we tried. My husband's favorite was the alcatara (top sirloin) while mine was the leg of lamb. The filet was excellent as well and both of our second favorites. The servers were very attentive and friendly, and the wine list was very good. We also split a dessert (the papaya cream with creme de cassis, at the recommendation of one of the servers, and it was delicious as well. It was on the louder side in the dining room, but nowhere near unbearable. We both give it an A+!

    The salad bar has so many good things on it, try to just take a little so u dont fill up. The servers walk around with all different types of meats a cut u slices of any that u wish. They giv u a paper that has all the types they have if you didnt see one just ask and they will get it to you fast. Great service.

    I make arrangements for our clients to dine at Fogo de Chao all over the country. I was thinking about hosting a corporate dinner here. I tried it out with my husband for the first time on Tuesday, Sept. 30. The experience wasn't what I expected. We were put at a table for two but we were so far apart that we couldn't have a conversation without being loud. The tables around us were closer to us than we were to each other, which made for a not so good experience. Also, I only had the salad bar and we were charged full price for the dinner; $97 for the both of us. We are up in the air about visiting again.

    The concept of an eat-all-you-can of meat which they bring to your table non-stop. There is a very good salad bar but didn't go to that. The lamb chop and sirloin and rib eye were cooked very well. For dessert had the tres leches cake and port which went well together. Very attentive wait staff made the experience much better.

    This Brazilian Steakhouse offer a fabulous salas bar and a wide variety of meats served tableside. The wine list is reasonably priced. The service is great and it can be a lot of fun for small groups (6-8). Off larger groups you're seated at long tables and will not be able to talk to everyone.

    It was 10 yrs since we ate at Fogo De Chao. It was very disappointing. All the different cuts of meat were basically the same over seasoned and not very tender. The best part of the meal was the salad bar.

    My wife and I were immediately seated and a server explained the system to us. We were impressed by the salad bar; it had wide-ranging, high - quality selections. Once the cuts of meat started coming, we were nearly overwhelmed. Each cut was full of flavor and cooked exactly to our liking. The only cut my wife and I didn't care for was the lamb T - bone, merely a preference on our part. The service was beyond compare. They made us feel valued and welcomed. They encouraged us to stay as long as we wished and enjoy their delicious meats. When we could handle no more our server brought us a complimentary mango ice cream to aid our digestion. We will, without a doubt, be back.

    I'll keep this short and sweet. My experience at Fogo De Chao can be summed up as loosely controlled chaos. The noise level in the dining room was off the charts, the salad bar was well, a salad bar, and the masses of diners and "gauchos" constantly swarming around the table made for a very un-relaxing evening. I loved the filet and the signature Fogo steak but I honestly felt a little cheated as I am certain there is no way I ate enough food to justify the hefty price tag. I would say it is definitely an experience, but and experience I personally only care to have once.

    Definitely hit my expectation level in service and quality of food. Great place for lunch. Servers would ask if you wanted a particular item and ensure you get that item from their menu. Food was delightful and lots to enjoy with all you can eat. Celebrated our anniversary there and they complimented a dessert. Very nice!
