Everything was excellent as always. If you are lucky enough to be seated with server Alex, you will be very happy. He’s very attentive and very nice. He remembers my husband and I when we come in and even remembers what we drink.

We had a reservation for 8:15. We were not seated until 9:15. We then waited 30 minutes for our drinks & at the end of the meal, waited 30 minutes for our check. This was not an ideal experience.

I made a reservation for 8:15. Got there at 8:10. Was told to wait 20 minutes. After waiting for 50 minutes... we asked how much longer. Still an hour wait...

We had a 7:30 reservation and didn’t get sat until 8:45. The hostess(es) didn’t explain our time delay nor did they seem to care we had a reservation while they sat everyone else. The food was ok... the server was sweet but obviously overwhelmed. We were seated at the 2 top that is directly opposite of the hostess wall... it was loud and we couldn’t wait to leave. We waited for a table for over an hour and maybe ate for 15 minutes... we won’t be back. Sorry, but we were extremely disappointed. Looks like the restaurant is loved by many and in high demand, but it’s not worth the wait... and obviously not worth a reservation.

The service was a little slower than usual. I visit here frequently so I was a little surprised by that. But other than that the food was excellent and it's still my favorite place to eat.

When the servers come over to your table to take plates that are no longer being used they reach over your food and don’t say pardon me or excuse me
When servers come over to table to refill beverages that don’t say excuse me.

Throughout the whole time I’m eating my food they are monitoring the my table waiting to take dishes hovering over you

When you have been there for hrs the manager in charge of that section are rushing you constantly taking plates refilling water asking is it anything else you want coming over to remove the circular cards red/ green cards prior to us still eating they need to stop watching like hawks and let ppl enjoy the experience
I won’t be back

Had the best time with my spouse enjoying quality time at the start of a hectic week. The staff was so helpful and genuine. The food was delicious! My last experience was a little blander than I’m used to so this recent trip stood out to us greatly. The new Porque picanha was to die for and I can’t wait to go back for more !

AWESOME! Everything from the valet staff to our Server Christopher to the Manager Dalton. Exceptional! We came for my Son's Birthday and everyone enjoyed their meal. There was plenty of food choices for a vegetarian, someone on a Keto & Paleo diet. We recommend coming early and come HUNGRY!! I highly recommend the Baltimore Fogo de Chao location.

Great food, good service. Directly beside the Baltimore Inner Harbor and the Baltimore Aquarium, so it's perfect for seeing the sights before or after dinner.

Service was clearly better this visit than the last. Restaurant was quite crowded but service seemed to keep pace. Although, as my wife and I noted as we left, we had been there for over two hours. So, maybe the service was slow but the company was good.....

Whole experience is kind of gross. Pretty pricey for what it is. You get so full so quickly (at least I did). Food not horrible, but the whole thing is pretty unnecessary. Such high volume that the floors are pretty dirty. We had a gift card, so not the end of the world. I would never actually pay to eat there. Salad bar was the highlight.

What a shame.

My husband is from São Paulo and we have been to some of the best churrascarias that Brazil has to offer. Living in Baltimore for decades, we were thrilled when FDC opened. It was one of the most authentic representations of southern Brazilian cuisine we encountered here. The managers and servers were Brazilian and offered a truly amazing experience. Service was spotless and incredibly attentive. The beef was impeccably done and sliced perfectly at the table. Alas, no more.

Our visit there last night made it clear that things have changed drastically. Service was glacial. Our drink order was taken only after about 15 minutes at the table and took that long again to actually arrive. The best cuts of meat were rarely offered between an endless parade of chicken and sausage. We received one measly offering of sides at our table and no one thought to replenish it.

The spacious dining room has changed to a layout that repeatedly required the servers to bump in to or place their hands on our chairs and in one case my shoulder to navigate the remarkably tight spaces that exist between tables.

What a loss for Baltimore. A remarkable example of Brazilian hospitality and food has been replaced with another lackluster Inner Harbor experience. Que pena!

Brought my Fiancé to Fogo as a Valentines gift. This was my first time ever dining here. The salad bar was great and had a nice selection. There was a selections of meats and chicken however, I wasn’t a huge fan of the taste of most the meats. The. Hi Ken was good but salty. For a health conscience person I had trouble enjoying the desserts. For a special occasion it was okay but not a place I would go to weekly or monthly.

The restaurant was overcrowded, therefore causing service to be extremely lacking. We sat for 25 minutes before even having our drinks served to us. There was not enough meat going around. A manager came to our table once after noticing we had no food, and no drinks. He apologized and asked what kind of meat we wanted. He returned with it within 5 minutes. Unfortunately, we had the same results as previously stated after that. Due to the crowd, the salad bar was continuously out of many items. The staff worked hard to replenish it.

Overall, I would not return to the Baltimore location. The ambiance was off and the experience was lackluster and disappointing.

It was... okay. Nothing special. They seemed to be a bit understaffed, so service was slow. The meat (aside from the strip steak) had a somewhat seafood taste to it. If you don’t eat all day, expect to get your money’s worth. Otherwise, don’t bother.

Food was good, wasn’t getting as much attention as we would have liked when our card was flipped on green side. Didn’t get to try some of the meats, I was really looking forward to trying some lamb.

Valet service was terrible, both dropping off our car took 15 mins and then picking up our car took 45 mins.

Dining experience was not great- we were always waiting for food or drinks. Servers were very nice but the kitchen and bar was backed up so the experience was frustrating. They tried to make it up with free dessert but honestly I would have spent more and gone to a nicer steak house.

The parmesan pork was easily the best of the meat offerings with the filet mignon a close second. The spread overall was fantastic and the sides at the market table were delicious. The service was superb as well. I always enjoy eating here with my lady and the family.

Went on Valentine’s Day... Was crowded, but that was understandable. Service... this is where things got ruined. It seems that everybody there had attention deficit disorder.. Servers were walking past our table with meats even though our “cards” were green side up. At the beginning we asked for water with lemon.. We got just water. Then we had to ask three times three different servers to bring us lemon ( one of them twice)... In 45 minutes they finally managed to bring lemons... That is in addition to the fact that in this steak house it really takes significant patience and time to get actual steak... or chicken ... or any food.... You cannot pay less than 18 gratitude for this service because their billing equipment does not allow you to adjust this amount down ... only up.. Anyways, this is not an experience anybody wants to have on Valentine’s Day....
