Was surprised at how good this Fogo was in San Antonio. I have been to the ones in Houston and Rio. The Houston location is not so good. The one in Rio was excellent and so was this one. Great experience.

Very Nice Anniversary Surprise
Whe I made the reservation I asked for a quite corner table as it was our anniversary, the staff were very accomidating to this request.Once we were seated our waiter ended up with two very large parties to attend to as well, so it was as if we were an after thought. He would asked us several times if we needed anything but it seemed as if when we did, like water or soda refills or a plate we had to flag him down. Several times when asked if there was a specific cut of meat we wanted we would request it but never got it until the very end of our meal. When we asked for our check we were suprised with a piece of strawberry cheesecake that said "Happy Anniversary", very sweet of the staff.

Good food as usual
Food was very good as usual, the noise level in the room is slightly high which does make it a little difficult for conversation.

The bartenders could use a few more lessons in mixing. This is my 4th visit and will quit spending money at the bar after this visit. I have never had a good experience at the bar.

Party of 6
Arrived for an Easter Sunday Brunch around 3pm. Party of 6. Valet parking is $8 with ticket validation at Fogo de Chao. The nearest parking lot is about 150 feet away and you would pay more there. Seated immediately. The salad bar is great. Didn't care for the heart of palm. The meats were excellent although most in the party did not like the lamb. They thought it tasted too gamey. I didn't try it. Lamb is not popular in Texas anyway so it may have actually have been mutton I told them. The pork sirloin with parmesan crust got rave reviews. So did dthe filet mignons. Very good service. Had desserts at the end including a terrific tres leches cake which appeared to be the favorite of the three we ordered.

This is a LOT OF FOOD. For meat lovers. Vegetarians can forage from the all you can eat salad bar. For the meat lovers, be careful not to fill up on the salad bar. If you do save room for dessert, I highly recommend the Tres Leche Cake.

An excellent Brazilian restaurant
I had a great experience on wednesday April 17 when I dined in this restaurant. There were 3 of us and we all loved it. The service was excellent not to mention the food. We had the papaya cream for dessert and it was truly refreshing. If you are ever in San Antonio this is a must eat restaurant.

I enjoyed the experience. I was place in in a small room off the main one. It was quiet and I thought the wait staff would forget me. The sever did initially but once they realized my presence, they took good care of me. The meats were well seasoned. I had the Tres leche cake after the recommendations of members of Open Table, it wasn't bad but I have had better. Great for romance!

Pricey but worth it
The salad bar was great. It felt a bit rushed despite it being a Monday night and the restaurant not being anywhere near full. We did not see anywhere near the 16 different types of meat offered at our table, probably only around 8, and some were a bit tough despite always asking for medium rare. I was never quite sure who our official waiter/waitress was either, but over all it was a great meal. The bartender was very knowledgeable about the drink menu and the flan dessert was also very good. Would definitely recommend to anyone who loves to eat meat and can shell out the cash for a nice meal!

My husband & I sincerely enjoyed our first time here for dinner. We were there for our first time for Father's Day & he loved it. The staff was amazing & even though the restaurant was full, we didn't have any wait time at all. We will definitely be returning, as well as referring our family & friends. I was referred here by a few friends from work who also thoroughly enjoyed their experience.

Awesome salad bar
Everything was wonderful, but the salad bar was awesome. I could have just eaten salad and been satisfied. The staff was so helpful in guiding us through our meal.

Is excellent Restaurante the quality of the meat is outstanding and for my group was there the salad bar is extraordinary. We enjoy the food?

Even Better Than Expected
I knew going in that we were in for a great experience. This was my wife's and my first Brazilian "churrascaria", and we had been encouraged to try one next time we were in the vicinity. The service at Fogo de Chao is outstanding and rather spoiled us for the remainder of our stay in San Antonio. Everything else was compared back to the attentiveness, fluidity, seamless teamwork, and flair of Fogo's waitstaff and management. The food was nothing short of outstanding.

Meat, meat, and more meat!
If you're a true meat lover....this is your place. Beef, chicken, lamb! Great service too.

Meat Lover's Special
Although you can just get the salad bar, which is amazing, this place is for people who love meat and lots of it! We have learned to turn our card to stop once you get a few pieces of meat, otherwise they keep coming with more and it gets overwhelming. Very expensive, but worth it.

Another great experience at Fogo
Went there with 2 business companions, and the salad bad and the meat selections were out of this world as usual. The waiters will flock to your table when you turn over your coaster. They repeatedly asked if we were having a good time and certainly created a caring atmoshere. Great place!

Would go Back
Service is awesome. The steak was great, tried a piece of chicken and was disappointed. Will go back!

My husband and I love to visit different locations. The service level was impeccable, and Carlos, particularly, provided service above and beyond our expectations. The management stafff shows genuine hospitality to all their guests. The food was delicious and the variety is one of my husband's favorite treats. We will continue to visit Fogo de Chao and always look forward to our next experience. Thank you again for such a memorable experience.

Vegetarians need not apply
All you can eat meat fest! For those that have not eaten at a Brazilian steak house be aware that this is a different way of dining. I'm sure other places on the internet will discuss how these restaurant work, I will just relay my experience.
The food at the all-you-can-eat salad bar was quite good. Better in fact than the meat(s) that are served at the tables. Note: this is not Morton's. This is more like a Benihana version of Morton's. Interesting way to eat. Excellent service.
This is not where I would go when I want an excellent meal. I would not take my best clients here, but for sure, I would take my B-list clients here.

My son loved his first time here. We don't do this very often but the food was very good. The salad bar was very clean, and everything looked very fresh.

The restaurant was almost full, yet you felt like you are the only one there.
Constant attention by the servers.

My large group of included steak lovers, vegetarians, business execs, professors, wives and children.
Everyone was thrilled and left happy. More compliments from this dinner than any other all year.

good food not so good service
We waited 15 min.for meat . We sat with nothing on our plates many times. Good food bad service. We spent 250.00 for 4 people you have an expectations of better service . There are other Brazilian steak houses in San Antonio that might have better service we will see.

A Different T-Day Meal
We chose this restaurant for its unique selection of roasted meats and poultry. Excellent service by the "gauchos" who slice off the servings of steak, pork, or chicken as much and as often as you wanted. A clean salad bar and excellent wait staff. Drinks are overpriced for the serving size; a blended mojito in a 6-8 oz tall glass, cost $12.50. Drink list did not provide prices so ask first before ordering to avoid surprises. This was a holiday special (Thanksgiving), so the price per person ($42.50) was probably compensation for all the wait staff on duty that day. Still, a unique restaurant, but very loud with an open seating plan, so don't plan anything of an intimate event here.

This was our first time at Fogo de Chao and it was excellent for Thanksgiving. We will go again when we are in a city where there is a restaurant.
