But foodMeat a little salty. But food overall was delicious4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Salad Bar EverI go for the incredible salad bar. So many wonderful choices. I never have room for the meats. The salad bar has salmon, cheeses, chicken salad ,bacon and prosciutto to choose from. All the greens are fresh and well stocked. Side dishes are delivered to your table to enjoy with your salads.
If there are non meat lovers with you they will love the salad bar. The meat lovers will be in heaven. enjoy4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI love everything about FogoI love everything about Fogo de Chao! The atmosphere, the food, the specialty drinks... everything!

The food was endless and so good. I also really enjoyed the wine selection.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my third visit, andThis was my third visit, and was just as good as the first. Although it's pricey, it's worth it as the food and service was excellent. I'll visit again next time in D.C3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMInexpensive Valet parking,Inexpensive Valet parking, Adult ambiance, however very kid friendly. We made reservations and was seated promptly. Waiter explained protocol and put us at ease. Abundance of various meats (beef, chicken pork and lamb). A meat lovers paradise!! Worth the drive and price.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've dined there on severalWe've dined there on several occasions and the food is always great! Service is top notch even though the waiter spilled water on me this time (things happen).3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience!Amazing food paired with a great wine selection and top service! Only downfall is that it can be a little overcrowded. Too many tables placed too close next to each other.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. I originally wentGreat food. 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. My Lemondrop Martini was also delicious! Only complaint was the noise level. We were seated in the center and it was very loud. Regardless, we will definitely return!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place. I onlyI love this place. I only take "special" guests. It's special. What a comprehensive and delicious salad bar with sooooo much variety. Love that apple salad. See you again.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Service...even thatFantastic Service...even that is an understatement! Food was great, reviews spot on for level of salt in some of the meats, but no enough to deter you from asking for more. Not somewhere I think you can go often, but definitely worth going for special occassions. Don't tell your cardiologist you ate there :)3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe perfect date night!What a wonderful experience, in the heart of downtown D.C., the perfect place for almost any occasion. From start to finish, the staff went beyond the call of duty to make our dinner very special, and for every other table as far as we could see. Two managers checked on us frequently, but not that it was really needed, the servers worked as team to make sure everything was cooked as we liked it and that we had enough to drink without even letting us know they were there! I definitely recommend one of those Brazilian margarita drinks,( not sure how to pronounce or spell it), but I sure could drink it! Be sure to try everything on the salad bar, everything is scrumptious.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBring your appetite!My mom and I went around 11:30 on a Tuesday and it was fantastic; the customer service and attendance to our needs was amazing. The wait staff knew how to hover without hovering (this makes sense if you've ever been to a restaurant where the wait staff remind you of buzzards watching your every move). They were funny, personable, and did a great job.
The food was also fantastic (both the salad bar and the meat). It is a bit pricey but definately worth it for a special occasion. I'll definately be back.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery goodOur second visit an still just as good. I love the salad bar and Hubby loves the meat selection. As a non red meat eater a few more chicken / pork options would be good, but overall a good evening out.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best BazillianOne of the best Bazillian Steakhouses around. One of a few contenders for the #1 spot.1/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly RecommendHighly recommend - I would advise booking as its very popular. There is a huge help yourself salad bar laid out with a fantastic selection various salads, cheeses, cold meats , you could easily dine on salad alone ( which you can do if you so desire). If your a meat lover though take it easy on the salad as the cooked meats the servers bring to your table are basically all you can eat. Steak, chicken & pork , various cuts cooked in various ways. The food was fantastic, staff were friendly, helpful and attentive nothing was to much trouble and checked regularly that you were getting enough of what you wanted, which was great for me as I only eat white meat. ( a few more chicken/pork options would be good)12/28/2012 12:00:00 AM
