Great for birthdays!
Our group of six enjoyed this place immensely! None of us had ever been to a Brazilian steakhouse before, but it was absolutely worth the money and we look forward to coming back very soon. and even surprised the birthday and even surprised the birthday girl with cheesecake. Bravo Fogo.

I don't eat meat...
I recently came to this restaurant with my Fiancé for his birthday.
I was very hesitant at first, because I'm a vegetarian. I ate only
from the salad bar and was full. The manager and staff recognized
This and were great at only serving him meat. Also, to my surprise
they only charged me for the salad bar instead of the entire dinner
meal. The atmosphere was great and I would recommend this
restaurant to others!

Great Food at Fogo
The food here is terrific!! There is a very good variety. I recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.

The salad bar and all you can eat meat was great. The wine list was big but not enough Brazilian wine to select from. The service was good too. If you are a meet eater, you will like this place.

From the beverage menus to the desserts, everything was oh so tasty! So many different cuts of meat being brought to your table as soon as you flip that coaster to "green"! We loved every bit of the experience. The salad bar was fresh, and full of so many items that you wouldn't see at any average restaurant.
The service was excellent in so many ways. Our server told us that the wait staff works as a team. They most definitely do! Quite efficient.
Two things are for certain when it comes to dining here: you have to love meat, and expect to leave stuffed! :)

If you have a meat lover in your family, send them to this place.

Lots of great options and everything was delicious. We were there early so it was ok with kids but I can't see it being good with kids later into the evening.

Excellent Food and Service
The food was terrific and the service was excellent. They all worked great as a team.
On a side note, my daughter has a gluten and beef issue and only ate one of the chicken dishes and a pork rib and they only charged for the salad bar for her.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was outstanding!
Felt like we were part of a dance. The servers whirling around us with luscious meats hot off the spit! We never had to wait for the arrival of a new meat to try, manager visited our table as our meal concluded. Was a enjoyable evening!

Exceptional Service and Food
We had our Dad's Birthday Party here and the staff accommodated a large group of us during Restaurant Week (we had no idea when we made the reservation) and managed a gorgeous and fun cake presentation at the end of the meal. We brought our own cake, but the staff could not have been more accommodating and just plain fun even though they were clearly incredibly busy. We're talking about making this a family birthday tradition! Highly recommended!

BEST Date Night EVER!
My girlfriend and I had the best time at Fogo de Chao during Baltimore Restaurant week. The meat, salad bar and bread were DELICIOUS! The service we received was wonderful and our expectations were far exceeded. I spilled something on my blouse and two managers, at two different times saw me dabbing at it with a cloth napkin and they offered to bring me club soda.
I will definitely go back to Fogo again, even without the Restaurant Week discount!

Great time during Restaurant Week
Fogo is consistently a great place for groups to dine. We went during restaurant week and got great pricing. The menu was a little limited; don't remember that before but the leg of lamb was so tasty.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service is top notch, considering this is restaurant week and it was very full. The salad bar food was fresh and delicious, and the meat is well-seasoned and cooked to perfection. The only quibble is certain cuts of meat don't make it across the room (lamb cuts). It took many requests to finally get someone to bring it over to our end. Other than that, everything was great!
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a quality experience
The service is top notch. Every staf-fmember on the floor was as attentive as the last. They addressed all concerns, which for my party included some dietary restrictions. The foo was also excellent. Meat was served to temp, and the options were more than adequate.

If you love meat this is the place to go. The salad bar is fabulous beyond description. But beware, you WILL over eat
even if you try not to and you will leave feeling uncomfortable and over stuffed. The lamb is the best in my opinion.

Nearly Perfect.... !
I took my wife to Fogo's for her birthday.. Because of Baltimore's Restaurant Week we made reservations, we expected a crowd.. We arrived 15 mins early only to wait an additional 45 mins for our table... that is my only complaint....Everything else was great, the food is exquisite... The staff is very attentive, our glasses never reached empty, the bottled sparkling water was cold... Someone was at our table every 10 mins with a different meat to offer.. Their salad bar is one of the best I've ever tried.. The sides that are yourserved with food are awesome
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
I definitely will return.
I definitely will return. The garlic steak was outstanding. Our waiter was excellent, he made us feel at home and took excellent care of us.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is always excellent.
This is where we bring visitors from out of town to enjoy a unique dining experience . It's a fun and energetic restaurant near inner harbor.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place
We eat here sometimes just for a great lunch but we have also celebrated Mother's Day, Valentine's Day and our 16th wedding anniversary. The food and service is always great.

Meat lovers Delight
What can I say. If you love meat you have to try Fogo de Chao. The food is outstanding and the Brazilian Steakhouse service is something you have to experience to understand the joy of dining at Fogo De Chao. This was not our first time we dined here and it will not be our last. This was also a special occasion for me as it was my birthday.
There were any number of fine dining restaurants I could have chosen to celebrate at. I chose Fogo De Chao for the experience and the fact that they do not rush you. Our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. Since there is no menu as various meets are brought to your table the only recommendation I can make is to try the Argentine Wine. We did and it went very well with our meal.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We got to the restaurant 15 minutes before our reservation, we were seated right away. My family was so satisfied with the food and service. Will recommend Fogo de Chao to all my friends, Come hungry though and eat slow, there's a lot of food.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lots of delicious meat!
The beef is fantastic. The pork and chicken is good, but overshadowed by the beef. The salad bar is enormous and has lots of interesting items.
For the price, we thought it would be a little "dressier." People were wearing everything from bluejean shorts and t-shirts to dressy clothes.
Also, there were a surprising number of kids that made it quite noisy at times.
When we go back, we know we need to pace ourselves better. When you give the green, the meat servers will swarm. The next thing you know you'll have a huge pile. I would get a piece or two and then flip to red, next time.
The valet parking out front could not be easier or better priced at only $10.
And, last but not least, the bananas are crazy good!

A consistant a restaurant
A consistant a restaurant as you'll find anywhere. From year to year, they never disappoint with the quality of food and service.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Exactly what was expected
Great, attentive service. Food was pretty good. Prices were a bit high. Basically exactly what I assumed I would be getting. I'd probably go again if I felt like eating a whole lot of meat. Otherwise I have had better steaks at other restaurants. But it was an interesting experience and I'm glad we went.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I went to Fogo for her birthday. I had been there before, but this was her first time and she is typically not a big meat eater. Everything was spectacular including the service. They really did a great job making you feel like you were important among the full restaurant. The restaurant was noisy, but we were sat in the back of the restaurant & a 1/2 wall helped lessen the noise. The garlic beef might be the best thing we've ever eaten & the filet mignon was also great.
When we were asked the reason we came towards the end of the meal and told them it was for her birthday, they gave us a complimentary dessert to take home. The mousse cake was as good as everything else we had. Pricy meal, but worth every penny.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great time had
Excellent and fresh food, great service, friendly staff. Overall good restaurant.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The salad display is dazzling and delicious. The various meats were prepared flawlessly and served with flair. A memorable meal with attentive service.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I took my brother, his wife, and their son here for a special dinner when they were in town. The staff were courteous and complimentary. The food was delicious, as always. They even gave us a plate of plain mashed potatoes for my nephew (who is 10 months) at no charge.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
we love coming here for special occasions. we celebrated our sons 16th birthday and he was thrilled!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service. They make you feel like you are the only customer. Great experience. Love the meats Nd salad bar. Everything is very fresh.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Doesn't get any better than this!
For what you pay and what you get this place is a no brainer, weather it's for a romantic dinner, family dinner or business deal you couldn't choose a better place!
The food is outstanding from the salad bar all the way to the main course, they have a great wine list and the service is phenominal!
9/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
As always Fogo went above and beyond. We even broke a wine glass during our dinner and it was like it never even happened.
Service is 5 star quality... unless you hate being pampered!! Great wine list, great cocktails!! The salad bar... isn't very normal.. but it's great tasting!!!
You will ENJOY this experience every time!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fine Dining at it's best.
I went for my birthday again this year. The service is really impecable. The waiter did magic tricks for my son, they gave me a complimentary dessert, and waited on every waking need I had.

Meats and more meats
Fogo de Chao is the place to go if you like to eat until your are physically in pain. As long as your green coaster is face up, they will bring the finest, and most delicately prepared meats (chicken, pork, steak and lamb), and the won't stop until your cry uncle. The salad bar is stocked with some premium items as well, if you're not inclined make a mean entirely out of protein. Service is wonderful, and Fogo staff excels in functioning as a team. We were greeted by the manager twice and he was effective in making his rounds on the floor and making sure every table was being attended to. We live about two hours away from Fogo, and that's probably a good thing; if I had a Fogo in my neighborhood I would probably weigh 600 lbs.

Cannot emphasise enough how much we loved this place!! We go every chance we get!!!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We came here for dinner on the last night of our trip to Baltimore... It was amazing!!! The waitstaff is incredibly attentive and you get a true sense of the pride they take in offering a dining experience second to none!!! And while it is a carnivore's dream, my GF pescatarian wife had plenty of choices as well!!!

Whole lotta salt
I have been to Fogo de Chao many times, in Baltimore and elsewhere. I always enjoy the food very much while I am there, but several hours later I inevitably am desperately thirsty because just about everything served here is absolutely LOADED with salt. I am not one of these anti-salt people by any means, but seriously...this place is a salt bomb. Even the cheese puffs (the little rolls that are served to every table) are loaded with salt.
That said...the salad bar is outstanding, and the meats are very tasty. My advice is to hold out for the good stuff (filet, picanha, leg of lamb, etc.) and avoid the lesser cuts (particularly top and bottom sirloin.) The sausage is different and interesting, too, if you're so inclined.

Fogo de Chao
Everything was wonderful but the service was a little slow when it came to drinks. Food was amazing and the salad bar is always fully stocked and fresh. We love it here!!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everyone Loved It
Three generations loved the food. Great service. Attentive to everyone's needs. Enjoyable and relaxing evening.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
My group of six truly enjoyed our experience there. The salad bar offered a wide variety of colorful vegetables and salad. The hot food bar looked just as appealing. The servers are professional and they ensure everyone has a royal experience.

5 Stars - But Be Hungry!
This is the most amazing all you can eat establishment there ever was. Bring your apetite when you eat here. The salad bar could be a meal in itself if you're not careful with well over 30 different items. When they start bringing the succulant meats around, you are in for a huge treat. From the bacon wrapped chicken, to the filet, to the garlic beef, and 9 other meat varieties, this is a meat lovers paradise! You will really enjoy this dining experience!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
thank you Fogo de Chao awesome time
Had a party of 16. Excellent time. The salad bar alone was so amazing, and then the meat arrived. My guests were amazed! no one had prepared us for the fab desserts. Thank you
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Manage your appetite!
Brazilian meat emphasis with an excellent salad/appetizer bar for variety and for pacing yourself. I liked having the server deliver small pieces of my favorite meat choices, then eating the hot meat, sipping some wine and tasting some of the sides before signalling for more meat. I couldn't eat like this all the time, but I will look for more special occasions!
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM

The salad bar is amazingly good! The service is prompt and attentive. Great place for lunch or dinner. Even for vegetarians.

Graet Brazilian Steakhouse
Salad bar is fantastic! The meats were well prepared and each server was very attentive to coming by to check in. When I asked for medium rare, if they did not have, they offered to come back with it! Very good! I also ordered a glass of their special wine that they were offering at lower price. It was called Darkhorse Big Red Blend. I had never heard of it but I was very pleased and it was at a great price.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious and plentiful
I loved the meat selection that they had as well as the very nice salad bar. Everything was so fresh and the drinks were delicious as well. I went during lunch so it wasn't as crowded but the meats that came out were absolutely delicious. The servers were very attentive and made sure we were taken care of very well. I would definitely recommend it for a special occasion or a nice date. There is a fairly large wine list and they have some pretty nice drinks. They even have deserts....if you still have room for it afterwards.
12/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
Aside from the pain I feel after stuffing myself silly, this is always a fave spot for a special occasion. The salad bar is consistently fresh with more "exotic" items you wouldn't find on a typical salad bar and the meat, well....best lamb I've ever had and I've tried plenty! I'm hoping Fogo participates in Restaurant Week again so I can afford to go twice in one year!
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Top notch experience
This was my second visit to Fogo de Chao, the first having been to the restaurant in DC, and they once again delivered a top notch experience. The delicious, un-ending stream of various meats that come to the table makes my mouth water at the thought, even now, days after my experience. They have an excellent side bar, a wide selection of wines, and a variety of other drinks, like my favorite, the Caipirinha, national cocktail of Brazil.
The real reason you want to visit though, besides the outstanding service, is the filet mignon, and the various other cuts of beef, pork, chicken, lamb, and so on. Oh, and try the flan!
