This is not a date spot, it’s a chain fast food restaurant, with super over priced beef and over cooked chicken. They also kept pushing us to get wine and drinks and we already had 2 cocktails each.. I felt peer pressured..

It was my husband’s birthday, and overall he enjoyed the experience. However this was our first time at a Steakhouse like this. For the price, I felt like there was alot to be desired, my kids didn’t enjoy the sides at all, only the cheese stuffed bread. And for myself personally the meats lacked flavor and there were limited options. I suggest adding the premium meats to your experience. Also, it was different being charged for water, and paying $4 for canned drinks. My kids didn’t like the taste of the water.

It’s a good experience to have once a year, but if you have picky kids, this is not the place.

There no parking unless you pay. They are always rushing people to leave. Several of the tables around us keep getting asked if they were done. By by one or two but by several of the staff even the manager. All the tables around us were waiting on desserts. I could understand if there was a line to get in to rush people out, but the place was empty and no one waiting to come in. They had just opened. We asked for a hot cup of water and got charged for tea. No tea was even offered to us. They tried to charge all full meal when one in our party had the salad bar only. This is the last time I will come to this Fogo. The one in Houston never rush the customer and always offer coffee or tea when you are done eating.

We usually have an amazing experience and book reservations to celebrate special dates. This time it was my birthday.... however the service was not impeccable like it usually is. Our waiter was not attentive and we had to ask several times for items to be brought to the table. We have eaten at this restaurant a multitude of times through the last several years and the attention and quality of service has been by far 100 times better than our last experience. We had to ask several times for lamb, dirty plates were not picked up, waited very long time for our drinks. While our server walked around casually and did not follow up. It made the celebration lack luster because the experience was below expectations based on historical experiences.

A wonderful place, even as a vegetarian!

I thoroughly enjoyed the salad bar, fried sides & beautiful bread, and environment! I also had the cauliflower steak (which is not great, but hey, at least they tried!) and a dessert that was yummy.

After telling a view different servers that I was vegetarian and not interested in the many (constant!) meats that were coming my way, and they stopped coming by pretty soon after that.

Delicious food, great service (quick times + nice people), and a wonderful evening means .... worth the price :)

Had a long exhausting day and thought I’d treat myself to Fogo for a much-needed protein dinner at Brazilian Steakhouse. Unfortunately I left wishing I would have gone to any other steakhouse for my money and fill. I made request to multiple staff asking for cuts of literally any beef, anything at all. With no steak cuts in sight my entire experience, I was overwhelmed by many preparations of chicken, poppers and a single cut of lamb. Green Chip to go for meat, No thank you send beef please! After 35 to 40 minutes of dining and an annoying amount of requests, I finally received my first cut and only cut of the garlic steak which from a server who disappeared from the dinning room never to be seen again. Utterly disappointed in the experience and I will never choose to spend my money here again.

The food was great. We felt very rushed. I ordered an entree, we ordered the shrimp and lobster app as well as the wagyu ribeye. My sea bass came out while we all had full salad plates, along will all of the sides for the entire meal. Just after, the lobster and shrimp app came out, again while we had full salad plates. We specifically asked the server when the best time to submit orders to the kitchen to ensure everything came out accordingly. Just after the app came out, before anyone touched it, the ribeye came out. Again, we all have full salad plates. I asked her to take my fish and leave it under the heater. It was my fathers in laws birthday and first time there so I was very disappointed. My fish was cold by the time everyone was ready for entrees. Never replenished the sides, as no one understood they were to share. The food was good, but the service was sub par for a 600$ dinner.

Fulfilled my husband's request to go to Fogo de Chao.

It was Father's day, so we did expect Sunday brunch, but it was only the dinner menu.

Generally, the market buffet and sides were bland. Meat was good.

Service, is good, but at the same time extremely rushed. Within 30 seconds of sitting down we we're given a 5 minute oration of cocktail options, additional appetizer options, how it worked, etc. What would cost more, etc. It felt like we stepped onto a car lot. I would have liked them to bring water and let me look at the cocktail menu first...as a result, no cocktails or wine were ordered.

We were charged for 4 complete meat experiences, although only 2 people ordered, they fixed right away.

This just isn't for us. We prefer relaxed meals, not an all you can eat cruise ship experience.

We went for the Father’s Day brunch on Saturday. All employees were so attentive and worked together as a unit to make everyone’s experience exceptional! I was very impressed with the attitude of the group that worked from 11-2. My husband and I have 4 children ages 2, 4, 8, and 15. The staff were attentive and patient with my children to include the 2 youngest who are rowdy boys. I really appreciate them making this Father’s Day experience in 2021 a great one for my husband and my family!

When we were greeted by the waiter he told us there would be a rotation of 17 meats and don’t feel rushed or like you have to eat every one of them. About an hour of being at dinner, the table noticed we had only seen about 9 different meats, so we asked a waitress that they did in fact have 17 meats and she says “yeah something like that”. So I’m wondering if we weren’t brought all the options because it was a slower night or what. Also the taste of the steaks were subpar, the part with flavor was only an outside charred piece, if it was from more of the center of the cut there was little flavor.
