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.

First off, the meats and sides were excellent! The Market Table is a complete disappointment!! Cold roasted veggies and sides...not very good at all. For a $30 salad bar, it was NOT anywhere near a fair value. A vegetarian and 2 vegans in our group left very unsatisfied! The meat experience is worth every bit of the $55.

Granted that it was graduation weekend, but the restaurant was underprepared for the crowd. Took 30 minutes to sit even with a reservation. Service was slow. Meat was overcooked. Fogo de Chão used to be fancy dining … it felt like being at Libby’s.

They were out of grain mustard and horseradish. When we asked for horseradish we were brought a ramekin of sour cream. It wasn’t until we asked twice for this to be fixed that we were notified they were out—why not just say you are out of it instead of giving sour cream?!?

We asked for the queso asado but it never came out. We also received raw meat once. The only thing that was on par for the price we paid was study our drinks were refilled on time.

I want to start off by saying I have been to Fogo de Chao plenty of times. I’ve always had a great experience but now I feel like it is NOT worth the category to go celebrate for a special occasion. In all honesty it felt like I was in Golden Corral. I would have just gone in shorts and sandals and called it a day to eat with my family. Kids screaming left and right and just people who needless to say probably didn’t even take a shower to go eat there. I know other people felt the same way, I could see it in their faces. The food and waiter great but the ambiance completely ruined the occasion. The salad bar also seems to have declined in quality. I think that pretty much sums it up.

Let me say I love this chain and in particular THIS location. BUT a few things are slipping. First off the dress code, which in Austin is always a bit slack, REALLY needs a step up. Guys in gym clothes, when you are celebrating an special event is tacky. I do NOT want to see some dudes hairy legs in basketball shorts and a worn out T-shirt. If I wanted Western Sizzler I’d find one. Fix this please. Second, I know the pandemic has changed what is available but the quality of the salad bar was just not what it once was. The server was awesome. The meat was very well cooked. The desserts were great. So even though it’s Austin and we are laid back here, there’s a limit. Seeing a dudes balls is that for me!
