    My husband and I went to Fogo for dinner. We spent $132.00 for two people, including tip. The salmon at the salad bar was delicious. The leg of lamb and filet mignon wrapped in bacon were also very good. We both agreed, however, that it was not worth the cost. There was no possible way to eat $50 worth of food in a sitting and the steak at Texas Road House was just as good at half the price. In addition it was very noisy, crowded, and took a long time to get coffee and the check. We won't be back.

    We have been on a carb free diet and while celebrating a birthday we wanted to splurge without the guilt. All of the meat choices were delicious, with several options including 3 different lamb cuts which we loved. Several vegetable and salad choices as well. Definitely worth the price!!!

    We went to this location in Scottsdale because we have gone to the location in Atlanta. We absolutely love the food and when we traveled to Arizona and found out that there was a Fogo de Chao in Scottsdale we could not leave the state without going. We live in California and learned that they just opened a new restaurant in San Jose CA, we are looking forward to going there real soon...

    From the moment we walked into the restaurant, we were treated exceptionally well. The service was outstanding. The waiters were very informative, respectful, helpful and friendly. As a rodizio style restaurant, you pay one price and the waiters will continue to bring you delicious grilled meats until you indicate that you need a breather. The ambience is quite nice but a little noisy. The wine list is superior. It is extensive both by the bottle and by the glass. All good choices. The salad bar is a little underwhelming given the high quality of everything else but since meat is the star here, you can't really complain. It is a wonderful place for a group. You can stay as long as you wish and everyone is having a good time. Nice

    OUTSTANDING AS USUAL; THE MSTAFF IS OVER THE TOP WITH THEIR ATTENTION TO THEIR GUESTS. ALWAYS ON TIME WITH A REFILL OR A A SLIGHT GLANCE, THEY CHECK IN TO SEE IF YOUR NEEDS ARE TAKEN CARE OF. FOOD IS ALWAYS WONDERFUL...BUT GO HUNGRY!!! I COULD MAKE A MEAL JUST FROM THE SALAD BAR. HIGHLY RECOMENDED, A LITTLE ON THE UPPER END OF DINNER PRICING, BUT FOR WHAT YOU GET AND EXCELENT SERVICE...A VERY GOOD VALUE!

    We love going to Brazilian steakhouses. Honestly I have not be disappointed in a single Brazilian steakhouse. There is not really anything like them because they are all so similar. I feel like the servers here were better with our children (ranging from 2 years old to 10 years old) than at the other two Brazilian steakhouses we have gone to. I have no complaints about any of the meats that I tried, though I did not try everything.

    1st to arrive to dine alone with wheelchair reservation. Table wasn't ready. 2 of 4 hot bins empty. Red potatoes bin lukewarm. Meats A+. Service — too good. Chose to be served only 2 meats at a time. Asked for Medium Rare Prime. Waiter says, "Sorry, don't have it; only Medium; be right back." He dashes off. I daydream out the window until I hear a commotion behind me. For meat carvers have assembled, since I hadn't flipped the Stop-Card yet to red!

    This was a great "experience" but I would probably not return. although the food was good, it wasn't great. And for the money, it was definitely not worth it. It was nice to sample many different foods and flavors, but this is a very overpriced restaurant. Would've been money better spent to go to Morton's or Flemings for a special occasion dinner. Drinks are incredibly overpriced as well.

    THE OVERALL EXPERIENCE WAS TERRIFIC. HOWEVER, THE BEEF WAS COMPLETELY UNDERCOOKED. IT DIDN'T MATTER IF IT WAS A SIRLOIN OR FILET, "WELL DONE" REQUESTED MEATS WERE DRIPPING WITH BLOOD. THE EXTERIOR OF THE MEATS LOOKED NICE AND BROWN, HOWEVER, ONCE CUT INTO ON OUR PLATES, YOU COULD HEAR THE COWS STILL MOOING AND BLOOD RAN ACROSS THE PLATES!! IT WAS PRETTY DISGUSTING, AND DISRUPTIVE TO THE OTHER WELL PREPARED MEATS THAT WERE SOAKED SOON BY THE BLOOD. OTHER THAN THAT, THIS WAS A VERY NICE PLACE TO DINE AND CELEBRATE. KID FRIENDLY. STAFF VERY ACCOMODATING.

    The service was slow, we had to call them over to take our drink order after waiting more than five minutes. It took them about 15 minutes to get a particular meat type that we requested. The meat did not taste as good as previous occasions. One of our people pulled clear plastic out of one of the side dishes and the apology was rather hallow. They over charged us on the bill for two of us that only had salad, it was corrected. After we paid the bill and were about to leave they came over with the birthday desert, about 15 minutes late. We have eaten there before as well as several other Fogo de Chao locations and this by far was very disappointing in what we have come to expect from them. I hope it not their new standard.

    It was our 20th wedding anniversary. Mentioned it when I made reservations and even saw it listed on the sheet of paper our server had when we were at the table. The server didn't make mention of our anniversary the entire night. The table next to us (different server) was also celebrating an anniversary and they were treated much differently. They received a wonderful anniversary wish and desert on painted plates to celebrate. Our server was too busy being self important to notice our special occasion. We went during restaurant week, but 1 member of our party ordered the regular menu in order to have the full experience of the menu. We had to ask and ask to have the different items he ordered delivered. They just kept walking past him.

    Visiting from mid-west and celebrating my sisters birthday. First time at Fago and we wanted to have a dining experience..wow what a time we had!! We made reservations on line and arrived at the restaurant early. We were seated immediately upon giving our name to the hostess. Taken to our table by a very friendly meat master and he explained to us how our dining experience was to be played out. We ordered wine, went to salad bar and turned our indicator to green for the main course to start!! We were surprised and a little overwhelmed at how fast things moved..there were always people coming and going from our table taking away things bringing more if this and that.. Loved the food and the overall experience!! Thanks for a great night!!

We joked about running to the nearest store to purchase stretchy pants, just to keep eating. The steaks were juicy and cooked just perfect. Thank you for making my day extra special.

    The entire dinner is a smooth and an enjoyable experience! Marco, one of the Manager's, is superb!! Their salad bar alone is amazing. I brought three of our international Senior high students to Fogo De Chao in Scottsdale for a special dinner to celebrate their graduating. Service was A+ and the meats and side dishes were as delicious as on previous meals at this fine establishment. Fogo de Chao was exactly the right restaurant for this event. Each of the three dessert plates/glasses was wiped clean.

    We visit this restaurant each time we visit our son, and we always enjoy the excellent meal. Service of the house specialty meat selection was poor as one server seemed to focus with singularity on one guest table to the detriment of the others. However, in the end, the staff worked to correct the situation to our satisfaction and was very attentive.

    We had a good dinner at Fogo de Chao, but it wasn't special. I think the reason is that we dined on a weekday. Normally, that's the best time to go out, but it seems to be different with this place. The salad bar wasn't as fabulous as last time, and there were far fewer gauchos patrolling the dining room, so we wound settling for food that wasn't our first choice. I understand (now) why they would be forced to reduce the variety when the dining room is two-thirds empty. The food was good, though, so our group will give then another chance. It just won't be midweek.

    My boyfriend and I make a point to try different cuisine and order things we've never had before. Fogo de Chao was fantastic. For $50 per person for all you can eat Brazilian steakhouse meat, we both felt like we got so much more than what we paid for in a great way. The flavors were amazing, our server was attentive and had great recommendations. Having just moved to the area he took the time to tell us about things to do and places to see. The beef ribs and filet were unbelievably good. Must try! And their chimichurri sauce is delicious! Date night, big group, family dinner, this is a great place to go!
