    The food was great. I don't eat a lot of meat, but I enjoyed tasting all of the meats offered and when i found one that I liked I was able to request just that one (new york strip). Our waitress took note that it was our anniversary and brought us a complimentary cheesecake (slice). I enjoyed the dining experience much more here than texas de brasil which seemed louder & more crammed. I Did note that the salad bar was bettwr at texas de brasil. They had a wider selection that inclyded sushi, meats, cheese, and lobster bisque. I was not asked if I wanted the meat and salad bar. I am not sure if they ask here like at texas de brasil. It was 46 $ a pwrson for the meat and salad bar here at Fogo De Chao.

    If you have ever been to a great steakhouse, you will be dsappointed. If you want to eat a lot of meat with inconsistent quality, this is your place. I did like the wine list and the service was solid.

    We decided to get away from themepark and citywalk food for one night. Everything was delicious. Salad bar was a little smaller than the others I have been to in Texas, but who really goes to fogo for the salad? Our kids really enjoyed the food and the wait staff was great with them.

    Not for vegetarians! Great selection of beef, pork, lamb, chicken. As long as your little coaster is on green ... the food just keeps coming. Pricey ($46.50/person, which inclkudes NO soft drinks except water), but great for that special occasion. 3rd time we've eaten there and will go back again.

    Wow! We went to Fogo de Chao and it was our first time at a Brazlian Steakhouse. It was amazing to experience. The food was delicious. I'm not much of a carnivore, but the cuts of meat are so savory, you have to try everything. The salad bar was incredibly extensive as well. It was very neat to witness the well-oiled machine that is Fogo de Chao Orlando. Our server's name was Zach and he was nice, helpful and accomodating. He made sure to check on us constantly throughout the night. All the servers work together to make sure you always have a clean plate, a full glass of water and all the sides you need. Overall the experience was perfect. Definitely worth the hefty price tag (a meal for us two with no drinks or dessert was $99).

    Client's who have never been to a Fogo de Chao always enjoy the experience and the restaurant group never disappoints (I've been to the Dallas, Orlando and Minneapolis locations). Great wine, great salad bar, great meat and great service. Our only regret *ever* is the amount we eat because the food is so good and we don't want to flip over the coin to the red side. The parmesan encrusted pork loin is out of this world yummy.

    There's little more I can say than "wow". The meat selection is phenomenal as is the salad bar. If you're going for the first time, don't let them fill you up on salad and side items. Save room for the meat. Fantastic. All of it. Our waiter asked us if we'd received all the meat we wanted and when I told him I still hadn't found the lamb, he asked how I wanted it cooked and walked to the kitchen and called for it. Within seconds all three lamb guys were at my table. Drinks were great as was our creme brûlée dessert. Took my dad here for Father's Day and they gave him a gift card for a free visit. $42 a seat may seem expensive but not when you consider what you get. Don't expect to spend the night here though, you'll be full within 20 min.

    There are now a lot of "Brazilian steakhouses," but Fogo actually began in Brazil, and is the best of all similar chains. You definitely will not leave hungry. Nor will you go long with an empty plate, as long as you're showing your green button.

    Another Brazilian steak house chain with excellent service and good food. I had just the salad bar for $25 which is extensive and includes some pricey items like an entire wheel of Parmesan cheese, beautiful asparagus spears, hearts of palm, and smoked salmon along with the usual salad bar veggies. There were also a few hot items, rice, beans and roasted new potatoes. My husband had the full dinner for $45 and the meat, in particular the beef, was excellent as was the lamb. The pork was so-so. The meat kept coming and there was quite a variety, from sirloin to rib eye to two kinds of filet mignon. We also had a couple of glasses of pinot noir at $12 ea. It was a very good dinner.

    This was our first visit to Fogo de Chao and I know we will be back! Food and service were excellent. Meats were prepared beautifully to all different temperatures (rare, medium, etc.)to please everyone and were deliciously seasoned. They had a nice variety of meats. The leg of lamb with lemon and pepper was one of my favorites, along with their specialty sirloin, picanha. I would forgo the overpriced desserts, but my daughter loved the Tres Leches cake. It was a big enough piece to share with everyone!

    After having dined at the same restaurant in Boston, this Fogo was VERY DISAPPOINTING. The quality of the meat was inconsistent... and not nearly as flavorful as the restaurant in Boston... overall...I would not return to this location... I would try the Texas de Brazil, which I have been to before, and was excellent!!!

    I have eaten at many fine restaurants in my travels and can say without a doubt that Fogo de Chao is the best. It sets the bar for Brazilian steakhouses, no one else even comes close. I have enjoyed Fogo de Chao many times at several locations and have always experienced great food, service, and ambiance.

    I'm a local so I bounce between Texas de brazil and here. Texas has more variety and better tasting food. Texas has sauces like chimichuri etc... However the service at fogo kept me coming back. This is the first time service was not on point. Main waiter struggled and assumed I didn't want bottled water when I ordered wine by the glass. He was wrong. However, the back wait with the red tie was on point. This time no California rolls on the salad bar. The mini rolls on the table were overcooked. The meats were perfect! I'll write it as a one off, but please more variety and sauces for the meats.
