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.

Celebrated Father’s Day. This was the second time I have been to this restaurant. Both times have been fantastic. The meats are cooked to perfection and the salad options are all tasty. On Father’s Day they gave gift cards to the Father’s for a free dinner or lunch, which was a nice touch.

The dinner was amazing. The service was great. My only concern was work gossip. As a customer, I don’t want to hear individual problems and/or negative remarks about other workers. There’s definitely a place and time for these types of things but it should never be in an area full of customers who can hear you.

I would highly recommend Fogo de Chao. Great place for a date night, family event or large gathering. Food was fantastic and I recommend going with a large appetite as there is plenty of food to explore and taste. The wine selection was very nice too and craft cocktails. I loved the mint cucumber cocktail very refreshing. It was very relaxed atmosphere, the staff and service was exceptional. I like the fact that they do not rush you so you can truly enjoy the experience.

We were seated in an odd spot so the meat servers rarely came around, and the good meats never came to us at all. It was very disappointing to see them come close but never serve us.

It was my first time there and in a Brazilian steak house. And it was an experience that I won't forget. Great food and service all night. It was great, just flip your card over to green and they kept coming with all the different kinds of meat done perfectly for how anyone would like it and the salad bar is impressive. We had a vegetarian in our party and she was really happy with the choices she had.

Visiting Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse is always a pleasant experience. The service has always been extraordinary even on high volume days. I am always impressed by the professionalism and etiquette the entire staff displays, and I admire how hard the staff work. There are some days where I feel as it is understaffed as checking in can take more than 20 minutes even with a reservation, but I wouldn't necessarily consider that a negative thing especially on busy days. The wait is worth it regardless. I perhaps suggest two hostesses for the restaurant during peak hours as we had someone besides the hostess seat us.

The food and the salad bar are fantastic. The pickle selection was excellent, and I hope they continue it. There are times when the signs at the salad bar are either missing or misplaced, but again, a minor issue that does not hinder my experience.

My only suggestion I have is to work on the cocktails for the bar. The wine selection is great, and we had a lovely wine paired for our meal that night. Furthermore, the beer as well was a decent selection. However, every cocktail thus far has been somewhat mediocre. They sound amazing on paper, but once you receive the drink, it's not bad but not great.

Overall, I believe there are only minor things that can be improved upon. Otherwise, I recommend visiting Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse always. The food and service will surely never disappoint newcomers and returnees.

The food is quite delicious. The servers very friendly and attentive. We did lunch late, and although we made a reservation there wasn't a notice that they change out for the dinner service, so we were rushed at the end.

This was my second experience at a Fogo de Chao, the first time being in Atlanta. The salad bar was amazing (you can make a whole meal out of it!), and the meats were all delicious. The only negative that we were resentful about, was that our waiter did not make clear how the $89 add-on worked for the special steak. We thought he was saying that one person would pay $55 and the other person would pay $89 for the upgrade that both could share. We didn't realize that the $89 was in addition to both of us paying $55/per person. So, we paid $89 for an extra steak that wasn't even as good as some of the others that came with the standard rotation. Anyway, I mentioned the misunderstanding to our waiter when we got the bill. He was apologetic, but my hope is that he will take greater care to explain how the add-on charges work. Overall, we had a great experience, and will go there again for a special occasion.

Qualified no review from a non regular meat eater. The meat basically tasted the same. Too much fat on meat. The lamb (well done) was good. The pork was inedible. My fault, I should have just stayed with their salad bar although my pass through it didn’t WOW me.

We went there to celebrate the birthday with a gift bonus card from my friend. We put down, birthday celebration, when we made a reservation. After we arrived, a greeter walked us to the table. I gave the gift bonus card to the server and manager told me that they stopped using it last year. I explained to the manager that we came here to celebrate birthday and he was nice to swap a new bound card for us so we still needed to pay one meal. He also mentioned that the dessert was on the house. It went well till the end. I saw the dessert was charged on the bill so asked the server. He had no clue so asked the manager. The manager came out and wondered why I didn’t tell the server about the birthday. I didn’t know that I had to tell everyone that it was birthday celebration so I politely to ask to take off the bill. The manager said, since I paid our dessert already, we can take one more dessert home for free. I thanked his gesture but we already had a cake at home. He started to explain how the bank was holding the money blah blah. Then I suggested to void the whole check and charged another card. I chose to email myself a receipt but I never received. It was not pleasant in the end.

We’ve been before and had great experiences, but this time (brunch) was a bit of a letdown. The waitress was nice enough, but it took a while to get our check. Additionally we usually have no issues with getting plenty of servers to the table, but this time was disappointing. After leaving our discs on green for over an hour straight, we were only offered about five choices of meat and once only, two of which we declined. We were ignored at least a dozen times and had to finally flag down the servers to ask for more than just the three samples we had tried. Normally we enjoy coming here but this time we felt we didn’t get our money’s worth.

When I pay a bunch of money I expect to get the same selection that everyone else gets with no excuses. We specifically ask for the lamb chops 3 times to be told that they are very popular and run out often. Well then cook more. It seemed as though our table kept on being skipped because the location was far from the kitchen. The plates were sticky, the wine we ordered took forever to come, then one was wrong and took forever to be replaced. We paid the same amount of money that everyone else did but we definitely got sub par service and food. The wait staff was nice, but incompetent. Probably will not be back for awhile.

Love the food but I wish they wouldn't try to upsell you on tray items brought round i.e. appetizers, speciality drink and other items. If we hadn't been before, we might have thought that some items were included in the cost. Seems to be the same at most Brazilian restaurants. 20% gratuity is added on check.

The seating was not ideal. 7 people and they sat us at a table where 4 of had to make the 3 other people get up. Considering it's a buffet to bar, the seating didn't make sense. Also difficult access for the servers for meat. Lastly, of the 14+ choices of meat, maybe 6 types came over and we asked multiple times for the others. Gave up in the end. Also, they didn't clean up the dishes as often as they should.

If you pay almost $60 for a meal and the guys came around to the table with processed sausage and chicken about 6 times. I had to ask the wait staff to get me the real meat. Then when we got that, it was not often enough they came around and you had to ask for the meat. They really like coming to the table with Chicken and processed meat.

The meat was bland and the salad bar was abysmal. I will never go there again. The place was the worst!
