It was hell. All the meat was over cooked. The servers seems to never come around. I complained to two different managers and nothing changed. It was a waste of time and money.

I had a 7:45pm reservation last night but was never seated because the restaurant was overbooked. I waited for 30-35 minutes and was never seated. My wife and a I decided to leave and visit another establishment. This was the worst experience I ever had at Fogo. Hopefully in the future they won’t over book the restaurant.

Extremely attentive service even though the place was packed. Food was excellent. We couldn’t get to the salad bar because of the line but the restaurant really can’t control that. It was very noisy but again, the place was really busy. Even with that insane amount of business, we were still treated VERY well and were never waiting on anything. Staff really deserves a big kudos for how they handled the customers!

Took my mother here for her “New” year celebration. Service was definitely better than the last time. Only draw back was the fact that they had the second glass door open and there was constant breeze. Unfortunately our seat was right in the front, it took away from the dining experience.

The space seem more tightly packed and service was sporadic. No parking validation and less than stellar front made for a mediocre experience compared to Greater DC and San Francisco.

Had Thanksgiving Dinner with my family of 6. We had requested for garlic steak and lamb chops and never served until we left. I held Christmas dinners for the past 3 years for my family of about 25 In Rosemont Chicago. Unfortunately this location was not as par compared to other Fogo restaurants.

My friend and I typically go to Fogo whenever he’s home from college. We do the full experience: salad bar and meat. We enjoy it which is why we keep going back. This visit included a new chicken meat choice and a fried cheese side that was offered by the server. As big as the space is tables are well spaced and there are no logjams around the salad bar. Daniela, our server this visit, was outstanding. Attentive and pleasant.

Having eaten proper Rodizio in both South America, and the Ironbounds of Newark, Fogo de Chao was a huge disappointment. It's the Olive Garden of rodizio. Everything slightly blander than it should be. The sides they drop on the table were embarrassing, but the worst part about this place was the service.

I don't know if it was because my male presenting child was wearing a dress, but the tables around us were definitely receiving more attention from their servers. In fact, our server wasn't the one who did most of the work for us, it was a sweet, Queer waiter who saw we didn't even have water on the table for the first twenty five minutes we sat there with menus in front of us. The one beverage we ordered arrived almost at the end of the meal.

This place needs a lesson in being Queer friendly. I will not be returning, and I will let the word of mouth spread. This restaurant should be ashamed of the way we were treated. Never again.

It would be nice if all meats were circulated within the first half hour or so instead of grabbing the server as they rush by with a particular item. We had several meats offered several times and then some only once. I had wanted to try the beef ribs but never saw them. Had to grab the server with the lamb chops since we had not been offered this item. The restaurant was busy but I would think that the tables would be assigned just as in any restaurant so the patrons can enjoy all that is being offered. The food was tasty except the pork roast was extremely salty. Overall, would return.

I had a reservation at 7:15pm and was never seated. The restaurant lobby had no order and Mask mandates were not being enforced at all. The management seems to not care about the service they provide or the safety of their customers.

The food is always good at fogo but it’s just way too crowded, especially during a pandemic. Also, the adults with kids need to have them under better control!!
It’s dangerous for the kids as well as the folks walking around serving the meats.

Fogo de Chao is one of the best Brazilian restaurants we have been to. We like that their meats are seasoned perfectly. Some of the others that we have been to we sometimes over seasoning their meats. Even when busy, we always get great service. Because of the price, we only go for special occasions or quarterly. I do think it is worth the money if you are a meat eater because of the cuts that you get. If you are not into meats then I would probably not recommend here.

We came here for my cousins bday dinner and as soon as we sat down no one came to our table for about 10 mins. She finally took our drink order and when she gave us our drinks we didn’t see her for the rest of the night. I asked another waiter if we can get more drinks since our waitress disappeared from our table and he was happy to assist us. Lastly, I recommended this restaurant because the lemon pepper chicken and the warm cheese was the best thing on the menu. That was the first thing I asked and nobody brought it out to us until the end of the night. I even asked manager and the manager said that that was à la Cart. I even asked 5 additional employees if they had it and they said they said they will check and I never heard back. I always recommended the one in Baltimore vs DC because the food is better but this time it was disappointing. I’m just glad at least my cousin enjoyed his dinner.

Baltimore location is inferior to the DC location unfortunately. The food is still great but it’s jam packed, very bright lighting, very crowded,and super noisy. Lots of large groups - very surprised given we’re not yet out of the covid woods. Service was very slow - we waited probably an hour for 2 desserts and that was with multiple reminders to our wait staff.
