Brazilian Steakhouse
Fogo de Chão is a leading Brazilian steakhouse, or churrascaria, which has specialized in fire-roasting high-quality meats since 1979 utilizing the centuries-old Southern Brazilian cooking technique of churrasco. Fogo offers guests a wide variety of simply seasoned meats, that are carefully fire-roasted to expose their natural flavors, including the house specialty picanha sirloin, filet mignon, ribeye, and lamb chops to name a few. Additionally, Fogo offers a gourmet Market Table & Feijoada Bar, which includes seasonal salads, soup, fresh vegetables, feijoada (traditional black bean stew with rice, fresh orange and yuca flour), and much more. Southern Brazilian side dishes such as pão de queijo (warm cheese bread), crispy hot polenta, and caramelized bananas are served family style. To further complement the dining experience, the restaurant offers an award-winning wine list, creative and classic cocktails, and a tempting dessert menu.

Excellent evening celebrating my husband's birthday with a group of friends(party of 8). We were glad we had reservations given how quickly the restaurant filled up for the dinner hour. Service staff was all very friendly, gave great recommendations, and was attentive without visiting too often. The food (salad bar and meat) was delicious, fresh, properly cooked, and plentiful. The Brazilian steakhouse experience was new to our entire group, except for my husband and I, and they all said they loved it! We would go back again in a heartbeat.

The soups were cold and the staff could not keep up with the salad bar items. The lower value meats were offered frequently while the better meat (higher value) was only offered infrequently. The empty plates and soup bowls were not removed unless requested making it awkward to visit the soup and salad items more than once.

One of our party members did not receive her Salmon for 30+ minutes. Salad bar experience for lacking compared to other Brazilian restaurants in the area. I asked for Parmesan covered pork and bacon covered chicken and did not receive it.

My husband loves this place but this location has become over crowded. You can’t even walk between tables. It was so loud you couldn’t have a conversation. The meat tenders couldn’t keep up and we never saw the filet that was “included” we asked 3 different times. I was also disappointed they would not honor my gastric card. Or allow me to take the few bits of food left on my plate with me. They also didn’t want to put the creme brûlée in a to go container because it would be “pretty” and they weren’t willing to just package it in the dish after we paid over $250 for dinner and drinks.

We usually go to Novillos but enjoyed the Las Vegas location of Fogo De Chao so thought we'd try the one in Bellevue. Unfortunately, it didn't even compare to the one in Vegas. The ambiance was far from a romantic, high price restaurant. They tried to pack as many patrons in as possible. The lightning was very bright and the tables were close together. The service was good but nothing spectacular. The most disappointing was the food. At Novillos, the salad/side dishes buffet was overflowing with selections! They had numerous hot dishes along with the antipasto bar. Fogo De Chao's lack of selections made it seem like it was an afterthought that was thrown together. This was extremely disappointing since I looked forward to that part the most (the Las Vegas location matched the bountiful selections that Novillos has). Now for the meat...this was the only part of our experience we enjoyed. The meat was delicious, plentiful and timely. They didn't have quite as many meat options as Novillos though. Overall, we won't be coming back. For the $150 price (this didn't include any drinks or dessert), we will stick with Novillos.

It’s a loud buffet (for salad) and then table side meats that really aren’t that great. Not my cup of tea. Would much rather go somewhere else for the price and get much better quality food. Won’t be back

We came here for Valentine's Day which is understandably busier than most nights due to high volume. Food was great, like it usually is, but as per usual we had to ask for certain cuts of meat that never came by our table. All of the red meat was delicious, but the food that was not red meat was drastically sub-par, this includes the pork chop and lamb which was either over seasoned or over cooked. Our waitress was sweet and attentive, except towards the end of the meal which I would assume is because it was towards the end of the night. This is fine though, other waiters gladly closed our check out with no attitude. Drinks were good and strong and the salad bar was delicious.

However, my main issue with this evening were the hostesses at the front. We had made a reservation for 9:30 and arrived at 9:30 and were not seated for a little over 25 minutes. There were people there that were WALK INS that got seated before us, as well as people who were over 30 minutes late for their reservations that were promptly seated before us too. At this point it makes one wonder "what's the point of making a reservation and being on time?" Keep in mind that they were tables with the same number of guests as us. As a former server at a high end restaurant, I am taken aback at the way seating was handled.

Traditional Brazilian Restaurant but chaotic. We had a lot of random people coming by to check on us without a value add. The Brazilian meat was done well and they were very quick to serve you when you had your card flipped to green. This is not a place to go for a romantic dinner. A lot going on, loud and not intimate. The price is good if you are a big eater and are looking to leave with the meat sweats. For two people and two glasses of wine, $170 with tip, was not worth it. I'd take my money elsewhere. The bathroom was not well cared for with toilet paper rolls on the ground. For the price, they should do some maintenance on furnishings. My seat had a rip in it and my husband's cutlery was bendable.

Amazing meats, and overall a great experience. That said, they need to rethink their methods of constantly trying to upsell you throughout your meal. I was (pretty aggressively) asked to purchase a shrimp cocktail by our waitress twice, as well as a man with the shrimp on a tray twice. Then another man interrupted us to try and sell their signature alcoholic drink to my very pregnant wife.

Again, over all an amazing meal, and will be back. I just hope this push to upsell was maybe a Valentines Day thing, and not the norm.

Fogo is everything you'd expect from top-notch Brazilian steak house. Great food, service, and ambience. In addition, however, the head of the wait staff circled through the restaurant with a cart of fine scotches, ports, tequilas, and a delightful ice wine. A fine way to finish off a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner!
