Our first visit post-pandemic. The food is still mostly good with some over cooked or under seasoned pieces. The service in the dining room was slow or they'd forget requests entirely. The service at the bar was excellent.

We were seated promptly at 5 PM, and service remained attentive through the evening. We went with the buffet and Brazilian side table , which provided an all-you-can eat meal for $31. Lots of fresh fruit and veggies, salads, smoked salmon, charcuterie, and black beans with sausage on rice as a main. A few items were strangely unseasoned, the roasted eggplant, whipped ricotta , and the feta with watermelon, I think they were just lacking salt. Everything else was quite tasty, and we had a delightful full-filling evening.

I think the food was pretty mediocre for the price we paid. I was expecting to be blown away, I was not. I had to ask four separate people for our first drink order. FOUR! And of the “sixteen” different meats they boasted about, we were continuously offered the same four. Pretty underwhelming.

We dined at this location on 6/5/21 at 6pm. Also, I’m a DC native. This was the worst experience I’ve ever had at a Fogo de Chao restaurant. The noise level was unbearably high. People weren’t wearing masks at the salad bar, nor sanitizing their hands prior to touching the utensils though a sanitizing station was present at the salad bar. I even watched a grown man sniffle, wipe his nose with his bare hand, then grab the utensils on the salad bar. It took over 40 minutes to receive our cocktails. Also, it seemed like the focus for meats was on large parties dining in the back of the restaurant-or there was a meat shortage. We continued to get offered the same 4 meats: sausage, Parmesan crusted pork, chicken breasts, & chicken drumsticks. Three different waiters asked us if we would like a particular meat. We’d tell them what we’d like to have and would never receive it until after being seated for 1hr 20 minutes-despite being asked multiple times if the meat came out and if we’re still waiting. It was frustrating and a really disappointing experience. At one point, my guest and I sat with clean plates in front of us for 30 minutes waiting for different meats we asked for. We ran out of sides, and no one replenished them. The meat was not well-seasoned at all, like the Fogo in DC or it’s competition, Chima, in Virginia (near Tysons Corner). The beef was bland! I was so disappointed until I just wanted to leave. I didn’t even get full! The best part of my dining experience at the Fogo in Baltimore was the can of Coke that I ordered. The Coke was the only thing that was consistent & did not disappoint. If you want better service, well-seasoned meats, & more of a selection of meat, go to the Fogo de Chao in DC, or go to Chima Brazilian Steakhouse near Tyson’s Corner. This is my 2nd time dining at the Fogo de Chao in Baltimore and both times have been a disappointment! I feel I should get a partial refund. I won’t be going back to the Baltimore establishment.

I used to love Fogo de Chao but the experience has gone down significantly over the years. The dining room is overpacked with tables. The service is poor as well. Difficult for certain cuts of meats to be brought over to my table. Just a mess. No interest in returning unless it's solely for happy hour.

We haven’t been to Fogo in over a year because of COVID and we were very excited to get back. We made reservations and it didn’t take long for us to get seated. The noise level was high, and with everyone wearing masks it was very hard to hear and understand the staff. The Market Bar choices have decreased significantly, and the “wear your mask” policy was not equally enforced. We are fully vaccinated and we weren’t told that we had to wear our mask at the salad bar. We were spoken to quite harshly by a staff member because we weren’t wearing our masks so we put them on. However, I watched the same man walk by several others at the salad bar who also didn’t have masks on. We were there for about two hours total. Most of the good meats only came to our table once. The circulation wasn’t super and service was slow. We always celebrate our special occasions here but I will think twice before booking in Baltimore again.

The food was good. However, the place was so cold, I was shivering with a sweater on. Most of the meat was cold because it was so cold in there. There is minimal room for people walking so I got hit in the face with balloons and someone’s jacket. We were in a room towards the back of the restaurant. The walk to the buffet and bathroom was an adventure, almost not worth going to. Once we got the bill, we saw they attempted to charge me for a drink I already paid for separately. For a $200 meal, Ruth’s Chris across the street would’ve been a better idea. They did provide valet, which was nice. Except you had to request your vehicle 20 minutes prior and we still stood outside for 15 minutes waiting.

We initially had a bad experience here some time back so, we were not sure what to expect this time. Let me say.. We were shocked at the quick pace of service and how attentive the servers and managers were this time around. Completely different experience from our first visit, we loved it! Food was exceptional, the vibe was great and everyone seemed to be having a great time around us! Will definitely be returning!

The service is subpar compared to those in DC, Bethesda, and Tysons. You pay $60 for all you can eat and the servers seldom come by to offer you anything. Waited 45 mins into our meal to get bread and mashed potatoes. I go to the other Fogo De Chao locations often and every time without fail I walk away disappointed when leaving the Baltimore location. I might as well go to Golden Coral. I will not be returning to this location ever again.

We were greeted and seated almost immediately. We didn’t like the table and they quickly accommodated us and moved us elsewhere. The salad bar was delicious and had a sanitation station for safety at its entrance- much appreciated! Our waiter was Manny and he was WONDERFUL! Lively and fun and moved with urgency throughout the dining room. He worked those tables and still made his way to check us on! Awesome service, great food, and a beautiful ambiance!

Fantastic food! If we were served them… finally got the bread 40 minutes into the dinner… after we asked the manager for them. We had two servers (no clue why) and we they only checked on us ONCE during our entire dinner. It could possibly be the extremely packed dining room, but I hoped to enjoy a great dinner (along with great customer service) for the price we paid.
