    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!!

    My family and I decided on Fogo de Chao to celebrate the completion of my Master's degree program. We are still talking about the great food and customer service. 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.

    Dined on 5/7/2014
    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!

    The food is cooked and seasoned to perfection. The staff is friendly, attentive, and know what they are doing. My water glass was never empty and the gin&tonic I ordered was mixed perfectly! I took two friend out with me and we hardly spoke during the evening because we were too busy eating. I especially loved the bottom roast. I regret not going to the salad bar they have there because it looked incredible. I am coming here again. Thank you for a wonderful dining experiance!

    We enjoyed our recent visit. The cuts of meat were very good, but the salad bar could have been better for a restaurant like this. I am from Brazil and I will not compare this restaurant to the original as it is not fair. I do think the overall experience is great and definitely worth the visit. Service is great, the food is great with plenty of choices.

    Fogo de Chao has a highly unusual concept: letting diners choose from a raft of grilled meats, brought to you on skewers at intervals by a traveling series of waiters going from table to table. You can choose as much or as little as you want. The emphasis is on various cuts of steak, including filet minon, ribeye and sirloin, but the menu also features pork chops, ribs and chicken with sausage. Our party of three found the meats very good, especially the filet minon, which was practically butter-soft. The ambiance is wonderful - it's set in a big room with high ceilings, spacious and beautifully lit. And the service is impeccable, especially from the principal waiter who takes your drink orders and explains the ordering process.

    We arrived and were sat promptly but the hostess didn't mention "Happy Anniversary" even though the post it note stuck to the menu said "Wedding Anniversary". The server but didn't mention "Happy Anniversary" even though I pointed at the post it note and made the joke "It must be someone's anniversary". The staff was nice but not trained properly. A wine steward came over and asked if he could help with wine selection. I asked "is this a progressive wine list" and he gave me a puzzled look. I explained to my wife what a progressive wine list while he listened and all he could say was "I suggest a Malbec it goes well with our meat selections". The manager stopped by for a table touch but didn't wish us a Happy Anniversary. Can't recommend.

    Of all Brazilian steakhouses, I've always favored Fogo de Chao in Chicago--hands down!! My experience in Scottsdale was extremely disappointing. Never had issues with service in Chicago. I was given things before I asked for them (clean plate, more water, more rolls, mashed potatoes, etc.). I had to hunt down our servers in Scottsdale....we were not getting all the meats even after we specifically asked for a certain cut. The meats were bland. Totally disappointed.

    Dined on 3/3/2014
    Our first time at a Brazilian steakhouse. Service was outstanding. Salad bar was extensive and contained some unusual items. Everything was very fresh. It was the part of the meal I enjoyed the most. I didn't try any of the beef or lamb selections but my dining companions did. They seemed to enjoy the filet mignon and the lamb. I tried the pork and chicken options, as did my companions, and we all agreed that they were very dry. I wouldn't return anytime soon but I wouldn't rule out a return visit. Didn't love it. Didn't hate it.
