They offer this experience thing for $60 but the meats were majority too salt or uncooked. The stawberry mojito had entirely too much lime (me or my husband didn’t drink not even 1/10th of it) the passion fruit one was good, we finished that one which was our first drink. The shrimp cocktail was good.

The food was delicious and I was very pleased to see the sanitary measures being taken at the buffet. My only complaint was that they did away with the red/green card system to let them know when you want more meat. I assume this was a COVID related precaution, but I feel like it meant we had more interaction with the waiters rather than less. They were at our table every two seconds offering more meat. To be honest, it was a bit much and really detracted from our overall experience.

Probably one of the best dining experiences I've had in a very long time! That means a lot coming from someone who is in the industry! Aaron was an amazing server! Incredibly knowledgeable of the food and recommended some amazing cocktails and wine to pair with dinner! The gauchos provided an amazing experience as well and entertained us with their sense of humor and great service! The management team was present on the dining room floor and made several stops at our table periodically throughout the evening to make sure we had everything we needed. Thank you Fogo Baltimore Staff!

I took my wife here for a date since we couldn’t go out for Valentine’s Day. Our waiter was fantastic, if you go here ask for Alex he will take great care of you! We got what they call the full experience which includes the salad bar, and almost 20 cuts of meats that they slice right at the table. You will have to bring your appetite to this place and then fast for a week to recover. We will definitely be going back!!

The staff was very attentive to all tables. The meats were REALLY good this time because everything came out hot. The meats seemed room temperature the past time I went. My only cons would be, they need to come up with some more/better side dishes for the experience and restock the salad bar quicker.

First off, the service was AMAZING! I don’t think I’ve ever been to a restaurant full of attentive waitresses and waiters. They were so nice!

I came here with my partner for a birthday dinner to experience the experience special that they do. Although the cost is kind of hefty ($60), I understand why it cost so much because you basically get unlimited meats. So, you have to eat your worth when you come. All the meats were so delicious and juicy. My favorite was the pork loin. They also do a complementary dessert for celebrations!

In terms of COVID safety, I would have to deduct down a star. Although it seems like they tried to be covid safe for the market table, it wasn’t safe when the meats were going around from table to table. People don’t have masks on when eating and so when the meats come it can increase the spread of germs more. It kind of made me uncomfy even though I have the vaccine.

We dined here on Valentine’s Day, it was our first time but definitely won’t be the last time. The whole experience was amazing, the food was so delicious everything from the market table to the passed meats to the cocktails. Everything was fresh, hot and consistent. Due to COVID they had sanitation procedures in place which made me more comfortable, they required gloves and masks when walking around the market table. They also have valet at this location which makes finding somewhere to park downtown a breeze. I will definitely be back!

We really enjoyed our visit on 02/13/21 to Fogo De Chao in Baltimore. This wasnt our first visit so we know the food and the service will be great, but Fogo also took extra measures in ensuring our safety and following CDC guidelines and health protocols while maintaining the comfort and ensured that their guest have good dining experience . Very good job!!!!

The waiter we had was amazing (Olumide Adeyemo). He was outstanding! However, where I do have a complaint is I did not get the full experience of the servers bringing the different types of meat. I was told it would be 16 meats but they only came to the table three times. They kept skipping our table. I brought it to the manager attention and he act like it was no big deal and began over talking me and cutting me off as I was trying to explain. As the restaurant was closing and we were preparing to pack up, he told the servers to bring all the meat to put on my plate. I could not fully enjoy the experience of a Brazilian steakhouse. I feel as if I paid the money to receive absolutely nothing! It was not worth it to me. However I did enjoy the waiters service! I absolutely have no complaints with him!

1st of all, the service was amazing. Alex was our server this evening and was just fantastic. I've never dined at a restaurant where teamwork was so obviously fundamental. One squint of the eye and ANYONE by your table seen it and was there to simply ask "everything ok? Care for another drink?" Just incredible. This was our first time there, and let me tell you, they are not joking when they tell you to go easy on the salad bar... their meats are to diiieeee for, so saaaave room!!! The parmesan pork was one of the most delicious pieces of pork I've ever had in my life. And their basil dressing... are you kidding? Out the park. I usually go for ranch, but didn't see it so I reluctantly went for basil and was NOT disappointed (y'all ranch eaters know how hard it is to deviate). That dressing was incredible! Also had the strawberry hibiscus cocktail and the spanish coffee in place of dessert. We will absolutely be back. Kudos to the whole team, but Alex deserves his own recognition. Also!! My husband was on crutches and the patience the hostesses showed when he was paused at the bar, paying for a drink when our table was ready, was something remarkable! You all should be proud of yourselves and your staff. Just simply Outstanding, y'all

Great experience, confusing because you don't get an actual waiter/server. Confusing for first time visitors. Food gets cold if you don't eat it immediately after its served to you. Suggest a better job in separating meats (well-done, medium well, rare) blood was on my plate when served a well-done cut meat. Watch out for cross contamination.

We had plenty of food. The servers were courteous and attentive. The restaurant was clean and disinfected after the guest leave the table ( I know because I saw the clean the table and seats after a party left) they kept there masks on and kept there distance if you ask them to. They were polite and the wine was excellent.

The staff did an exceptional job maintaining the ambiance and experience even with social distancing and safety guidelines. The changes in service from pre-COVID visits were barely noticeable, and actually added the experience instead of taking away from it. We celebrated a birthday with a party of six and had a truly memorable night, and felt safe the entire time. Some of the drinks with dinner were a bit pricey, but knowing that going in helped. I cannot say enough positive things about the entire wait staff and management that evening. Will definitely visit again for special occasions. Well done Fogo.
