Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse - Washington DC
Fun lunch, bring your eating shoes."Salad bar" doesn't do justice to what is available, you could make meal from what they call a salad bar. The real point of this place is meat. The meat and sides brought to your table are fantastic and the service is friendly and attentive. This location, like the other three we've been to, do a good job with children from high chair age on up. Will be back.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMarjorie's graduation celebrationThanks for a very memorable event for my daughter & my family.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWon.Der.Ful!The meal and service were superb! My family went to Fogo to celebrate my husband's birthday. My nephew referred to the staff as "Ninja Waiters." They seemed to simply appear with exactly what we might have needed at the moment. Amazing! We highly recommend this place. It's our go-to celebratory spot in the city!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday luncheonI've had my b-day lunches at Fogo da Chao several times, and each time I've done so, I've grown to like this place for both the food served and the great service. Regarding food, one can be a carnivnore or an omnivore and still enjoy all those meats emerging from the kitchen on skewers. Although the beverage and dessert menus contained rather expensive items, if you stick to water or ice tea, you can perhaps enjoy the atmosphere anyway, especially the sight of all those wine bottles stacked on the walls. Do they ever get taken down and consumed? This diner wonders. Anyway, I'm glad I went, and I'll do so again if somebody else has a b-day they would like to have celebrated with their friends.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFun and a ton of varietySalad bar was good. Meat selection excellent. Rib eye was over the top tasty6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMore Screaming Kids Than ExpectedWe dined at Fogo de Chao on Sunday evening. We were surprised by the number of young children, some allowed to run around a restaurant with many waiters carrying large knives, that were in the restaurant. Several were loud and the parents were making no attempt to be considerate of the other diners.
The food was excellent, the service was outstanding, unfortunately what we remember was the noise.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the moneyFood was great, service spectacular, and was able to get a reservation at the last minute with no problem. Pretty pricey so make sure you come with an appetite.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFun!wonderful food in DC with a fun dining experience. Very expensive but perfect for special occasions.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFogo is Go!!I took my wife to Fogo De Chao for our wedding anniversary celebration. I must say the service was out of this word. Everyone was extremely friendly and attentive. Now I can't comment on the meat selections because I'm a vegetarian, but my wife really loved all of the meat selections. As for my area of expertise, the Salad bar was well stocked with many different options. I also want to say the bartender ROCKS!! We had delicious Caripirinha's. We capped the evening with a Creme Brulee. Overall we had a great time and I would return again. I will admit the price is a lot to spend for a Salad bar, but for the non Vegetarian it is well worth every dollar. Just bring a big appetite. Enjoy!!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent salad bar! As always,Excellent salad bar! As always, excellent selection of meats.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMbringing Brasil to DCUnbelievable food and service. One of the best in the metro area hands down! Worth every penny!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodI ordered a strawberry Caipirinha and over half the glass was muddled strawberries and ice. We I asked the waiter to have my second strained, it was brought to the table just like the first. I found this to be disappointing. The food was very well prepared and there was a lot of variety.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experience!!!
Each bite had a different exquisite taste.
We will come back when back in DC.

I originally went to the one in Los Angeles, CA. The meat is always amazing. I was a little disappointed about the salad bar, not much choice and a lot of the sides had dressing. The cheese bread is amazing, best I've had so far. The dining experience was amazing, ALWAYS make a reservation a couple of days in advanced, it was really hard getting a reservation for Friday, and Saturday at any time before 9:30 pm. If you're a meet lover you'll love the food.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMService and food was excellent.Service and food was excellent. Our favorites were the filet and bacon wrapped chicken.
