    Overall, I enjoy the competition more. A good number of additional items are available on the salad bar at Texas de Brazil that aren't on the Fogo salad bar. I also like the ambiance a bit more at TdB. Meats are comparable as is the service and price. Would go back if someone else was insistent but TdB is my first choice.

    It was ok. The service was not extraordinary, nor was the food. I was really expecting a restaurant with a wow factor, but no. Its wad bad, but no what I was hoping. Ill tell you what. If you are ever in Nashville, and you want Brazilianthat is 5 stats in food, service, and atmosphere, go to Rodizio Grill. They exceed expectations.

    My husband and I enjoyed dining here last Sunday, March 30, to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. They have friendly staff...and the gauchos were polite. We will come back again in a couple of months...yes,will have to wait because it's a long drive from our house. Great service, Fogo de Chao!

    6 of us went twice. Once for Sunday brunch and again for dinner. Both times our experience was the same. VERY good service, but the taste of most of the meats they brought to the table was mediocre at best. Our 1st time, we just accepted what was offered in the order that it came to us. After we were stuffed on sausages, sirloin and other cuts, they came with tenderloin and rib eye so the next time we went, we asked for the better cuts to be brought first. The rib eye was the only cut that I thought was reasonably tasty. Most of the other cuts reminded me of beef that comes from Mexico or Brazil. There is a large buffet in the middle of the room with a LOT of choices, but we all found it to be unimpressive. Too expensive for the quality!

    Thank you for making our anniversary night very, very special. My wife & I look forward to visiting Fogo de Chao in Orlando each time we go to Orlando for a special occasion. Everyone took care of us & I cannot wait to visit again on our next special occasion. Fogo de Chao is the reason why I will not go to Texas de Brazil again.

    I visited one fogo de chao in Brazil some time ago, which I found excellent. I wanted to bring my family, but was not as good. The service was not as remarkable as I would expect from a restaurant like this. Several times we were requesting the waiter to brig picana, but never made it, instead they brought other stuff as chicken or sausages, eventually steak.

    The restaurant was big, VERY BRIGHT and VERY LOUD. People were wearing cut off shorts, sweat pants, dirty t-shirts etc. It was clear they had spent the day at Disney or Sea World and then went to dinner. For the most part, people hovered around salad bar, making it hard to get near it. The meats that were delivered to the table were ok, but there was so much, so fast, you could not really enjoy any of it. Here is the thing, normally, we don't eat at buffets. When we spend a certain amount of money, we expect a certain experience. Fogo de Chao was not that experience. The only good part about our dinner was the service. Everyone was very nice.

The service is a "Team" concept, so there was always someone assisting. They brought clean plates without us asking for them. We will be back!

    We had a pretty good meal - you will never leave hungry from Fogo. This particular night we did not get a visit to the table from every server with every type of meat being served, we did not see pork or lamb stop by, even though we saw it come by - but everything that we had was very good and our waiter was nice, we left happy. My brother and sister in law had never been and they really enjoyed it. We'll be back soon.

    I have went there before and it was great. This Valentines Weekend was not so great. service could have been better. They really have to consider that Valentines weekend is a romantic date night for if not all then most people. there was a table of about 10 guests where I was seated and the loud noises and yelling and cheering they were making threw off our romantic dinner. we could barely hear each other. not to mention I had to ask twice where was our mash potatoes and sides when we had already been eating out meats. not very pleasant this second time around.

    I went to fago de choa on Valentine's Day and had a really good time. It was packed but I didn't have to wait for a long time since I made reservations. The food was really good and I didn’t have to wait for a long time to eat. I really really recommend there signature drink. My only complaint is that they didn't deck out the place in red and black for Valentine's Day. Also family where there which is understandable but if you wanted a romantic setting on Valentine's Day this wasn't it.

    If you love good food, Fogo is the place to go. Everything is delicious and fresh. The service is superb! When I come to Orlando, a visit to Fogo is always planned. The best Brazilian Steakhouse ever! Just remember to come hungry. Wish there was one close to me where I live. Of course, then I would eat too much all the time.

    It wasn't great. We thought the most of the meats were all too salty, and dry. They house specialty beef was good. It is very expensive so if you are not going to eat a lot, it is not a great place to choose. We are frequent diners at upscale restaurants.

    This was my first time at a Brazilian restaurant. The staff was attentive and attractive. There were multiple servers hustling around ready to assist you. The salad bar was great, our waiter told us to go easy there because the meat selection is where you want to fill up. He was right. All of the beef choices were amazing, delicious, flavorful, and hot as they brought them to the table and carved individually for you. When our popovers and potatoes got cold, they were replaced with hot ones. The waiter recommended the papaya creme for dessert to help digest and it worked. Great food with great service.

    We tried Fogo de Chaofor the first time at lunch. Beautiful dining room. The array of vegetables and the cheeses incredible on the food bar. Many bread choices but the cheese biscuits that are brought to the table are amazing!! The Coconut Haddock melted in your mouth.. Non stop meat for as long as you want to eat. The house specialties are over the top good. I have no words to describe how wonderful they are. Food is mostly for adult palettes. The service is remarkable. They are very attentive and helped us all with the choices of the meat skewers. Now we were in very early and the restaurant was about half full, but I truly believe that the service would not suffer a bit if the restaurant is full. They know how to do it here.

    When getting to the restaurant there was much confusion. Had to wait about twenty minutes for a table, even though there were plenty of tables available. Finally we got seated. The service was great and the food was very good. Plenty of food and top items also. Great salad bar. Then I got home and open table said missed reservation. I then wasted tons of time to scan my bill and send it to you. Then you proceeded to tell me I was excused. If the restaurant would of done the job properly none of this would of had to happen. Basically I wasted a half hour of my life trying to straighten this out. Thank God you have an employee named David.

We were surprised by the number of children (although this is near Disney) at a Braziian steak house, but the restaurant accommodated them very we'll. if you're craving a high-protein meal, you won't be disappointed.

    The food was undeniably great. The only thing I personally had an issue with was the bacon wrapped meat, I'd have less of that, but it's just a preference. The waitstaff was amazing. They ensured we had eveything we needed without us feeling like we were constantly hovered over. I'll be returning.
