    We went to this during Orlando's Magical Dining month as this makes it more affordable. The salad bar is excellent, the main course is very good and overall this is a restaurant to be enjoyed if you're not paying the full rack rate that they would normally charge. Make no mistake, this is an expensive restaurant and families on vacation will soon get sticker shock. The restaurant is located on International Drive and that makes it popular for tourists and those attending conventions nearby. Obviously the restaurant believes that they have a market willing to pay their price and good luck to them. Unfortunately, the pricing does preclude many locals who can find better value elsewhere.

    Fogo de Chao is a restaurant that will please all taste pallets. The food was seasoned perfectly! There were many choices and the service second to none. The only complaint is that thee was a "secret" graturity for Magical Dining participants. This practice was very deceitful and insulting. service/servers were far better than the 18% charged. However, due to the restaurants practice, the 18% was accepted and no more provided.

    The food was fantastic and the servers were beyond expectation. Fogo de Chao is a restaurant that can be proud of it's staff. They were very knowledgeable and eager to please. It was definitely worth the visit. We can't wait to take our out of town guest there who have never had the experience of a Brazilian Steakhouse.

    Orlando has a better dining scene than many people (especially tourist) realize. But our service often leaves something to be desired. This was, without a doubt, the best service I've ever had in the City Beautiful.

    This was the best deal we experienced during Magical Dining Month. Service was fantastic as there are numerous waiters that are very attentive to your needs without making you uncomfortable. Salad bar was great and meats were very good and well cooked. Drinks are on the pricey side. Overall, we liked Texas de Brazil slightly better for their variety in meats and how they are seasoned, but Fogo de Chao comes close. The service is top notch!

    Went there with my brother who just got married. Coming from Europe he had never been in such a place. Needless to say he and his wife were impressed, loved the food and the place in general. Service was great, steaks juicy and the salad bar very tempting (to fill you up before even looking at the meats).

    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.

    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.
