Lunched at Fogo for the first time (we usually do dinner). I have always loved their "Market Table", meats, and Pao de Queijo. As ever, the food was excellent, and the service attentive. My only quibble is that it was assumed we were going to order the full experience, our server did not mention the possibility of the Gaucho Lunch.

In DT Austin, just a great experience for our first dining at the restaurant; the service is excellent and the food is just terrific.
The manager on duty that evening,
Ajexandra (sp) came by several times to check on us and was so nice! We will be back

We were seated at a table that was crowded by other tables and it did not allow servers to come by easily. This led to me constantly having to flag down servers to order drinks, get meat and then the check. If I return I’ll never accept that table again.

The food and service was outstanding! I was surprised by the bill. I had read online that the cost of dining was $38-50 per person, but check was about $100 more than that. There are no prices up front to let you know this is going to happen. It would be helpful to know this and plan for it ahead of time. Otherwise, it was a fun experience.

Christmas lunch 12:30 Austin, Texas. Our main waiter was arrogant and condescending the entire service. Something I didn't expect especially on Christmas Day. The food quality is sub par. So sad, because I remember how great this restaurant was when it first opened.

Our traditional Christmas Eve get together with kids and 5 meat eating grand kids.
This is our 9th year and each has been wonderful. Service is great. The kids love the meat, bread off the salad bar, mashed potatoes and dessert. We adults love it all.

Sadly, poor service. This location was very slow on bringing food. Often found ourselves with empty plates waiting for food to come around. Ordered alcohol 3 times and still never received the drink before leaving. Took 25 minutes to get a check after the waitress took our plates. Lots of awkward waiting for a $50 meal... However, the food was extremely good

It was absolutely amazing!! I was a bit nervous, since it was a surprise first date, but there was so much about the restaurant to talk about, that I was able to keep my cool, the relaxed atmosphere was so perfect on "the red side" for me and my date to enjoy great conversation, and that wonderful salad bar ( great company and convo not included, you have to bring your own). The holy wow wow tasty magic that happens on "the green side" was the best thing i have ever seen happen to perfect cuts of meat!! My date was so impressed, she said she can tell "I think outside the box, and have very much raised the bar!" I didn't even know there was a box,(or bar) I felt like I leveled up!! 😎😎

I was only disappointed with my vehicle returned with some kind of white dust or dirt on the drivers floor mat and the runner to step up into my expedition. My vehicle was clean prior to the valet parking service. I was very disappointed with valet service.

We loved our birthday dinner date night at Fogo de Chao! The wait staff was very friendly and the manager stopped at our table multiple times to ensure we were enjoying ourselves. The service was wonderful, but we did have to wait a little longer than planned for our check. Overall we absolutely loved it!

Everything within the restaurants control was fantastic. However, there was a couple of unruly patrons who were rude and used profanity throughout the meal. We told the manager who attempted to get them out the door as quickly as possible but unfortunately they had already ruined the experience.

We dined here for my 16 year olds birthday. He loved it but the rest of us thought a lot of the meats were over cooked and dry. The really good meats are not brought around very often. They wait to serve them until you are really full so you won't request them over and over. We never got offered the lamb, and the manager said he would sent them over and there were 3 different ones, but we only got offered two of them. The salad bar is okay. I've been to a Brazilian steakhouse in Charlotte where they had a much better salad bar and a whole sauce bar. I had to ask for the Chimichurra sauce extra. It's a lot of money and I think it could be spend better in another place.
