My family and I have been visiting this chain for years in California and in Washington state. It has been our first choice for birthday dinners and celebrations for a long time. HOWEVER, I feel like some of it's charm has diminished over the years, specifically at the Bellevue location. Service was slow and the waitress continually forgot our orders/meat requests, and never topped off our water without us asking and waiting for ten minutes at a time. The chicken was also dry and the key lime pie too sweet. But after all is said and done, even with the slight disappointments here and there, I would still recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a special venue that is true to both it's quality and quantity of food options. Their lamb is my personal favorite meat dish.
Great food, great waitstaff and servers, great environment, family friendly
Very crowded - just trying to get use to post COVID dining. Did not have candied bacon on Father’s Day so a little disappointed.
The meat is underseasoned, fatty, and dry.
Tender and delicious cuts are what we are known for, so it's disappointing to learn we let you down. We'd love the chance to work towards your satisfaction, so we will be in touch via direct message. Warm Regards.
Adrian and Kiana were incredible. The food was excellent.
We had a reservation, still took at least 15 min after our reservation to get in.
Service was sparse. Servers were very busy with other tables, took a long time when we were done to get our check.
Under table a dirty when we arrived. There were a bunch of dirty napkins from the previous guests all over the floor.
If you are looking for a Brazilian churrascaria, this is not it. There was no rice & beans for a 1:00 lunch and we found out it was because they had not advertised or informed us that they were serving brunch on a Saturday. The picanha wasn't seasoned very well and we had to actually ask for salt for it. The steak wrapped in bacon was chewy and wasn't filet mignon like it normally is in a churrascaria. The other meats were good but not great and given the price, you want it to be great. The only thing that was great was the caramelized bananas (but you don't go to a churrascaria for the bananas!). Overall, we were pretty disappointed in this locations service and food and would recommend other churrascarias over this one.
Matt, our hope was to impress you with our delicious cuts and great service, and it troubles us to read we missed the mark. We'll be sure to send you a direct message, as we would love to learn more about your visit and work towards earning your support. Best.
Guest time at Fogo de Chao and we will definitely be back! Our server Jose was the best of the best! From going over every meat option & dinner menu to the beat wine selections ! And goodness was he on point!
Food was great, add the best server in town & we will be returning!
Great variety, flavors and service.
30 minute wait even though we had reservations and were there in time. No apology, no explanation. The meat was generally very good, but we got a lot of pieces that were just fat. Why are all the servers men, all the cooks men, all the carvers men, and the hostesses (ie, no tips), all women? Also, not the place to go if you are unvaccinated or care about getting Covid at all.
We truly apologize for keeping you waiting and not meeting your expectations, as your time and satisfaction really do mean a lot to us. We know we can do better, so we'll be in touch via direct message to work towards a resolution with you. Thank you.
Great concept with tableside service, but food was not as outstanding as the service. Also, table wasn't ready for almost 1/2 hour past my reservation time.
While we're glad you received great service, we're disappointed your meal did not meet your expectations. We hope you visit us in the future, as we'd love to provide a spectacular experience.
Generally a good visit. Not sure having a reservation helped much.
Great experience. Our first time there.
Very busy on a Sunday at 1.... the waffle guy consistently burned the waffles. The buffet they kept stocked but it felt tight in there. Other brands, Texas De Brazil, are more open in the buffet with more indulgent selections.
They sat us in a corner by the kitchen but the meat barely stopped at our table. We only saw the Picanha and Fraldinha with occasional Filet and Lamb Chops.
After a couple hours the kids got restless so we decided to leave. Service was poor to mediocre. Our waitress didn't check in on us for the 2-2.5 hours we where there.
We had friends who went the day before who felt the same way.
The kids did have fun eating pounds of fruit and the waffles...
Your entire experience should be great, so it's disappointing to hear that your service was not up to par. We hope you visit us in the future, as we love to make this right.
Food was good. Wish the meats came around more but it was very good. Only complaint was the length of waiting for meats and it took a long time to get the check.
Frankly, the beef is not that good. For the price I was expecting better quality and definitely better flavor. Will not come back. Not worth it
Zulka, we are terribly concerned to hear this, as we love to prepare our cuts to the best of our ability. Please allow us the chance to work towards your complete satisfaction, as we hope you decide to visit us again.
That food was busssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssin
The original and still the best BSH! Great cuts of meat and good service.
The meats are too salty. Also we were there to celebrate a birthday and the birthday gentleman got cut off for ordering two drinks within an hour. So we decided to leave earlier because of that.
If the restaurant has strict policy for how many drinks a customer can order, please put that in your website or on the menu somehow so we were aware of it. We were hoping to take our time eating and drinking so it was embarrassing to have the manager come to us & tell us that the restaurant couldn’t serve the birthday gentleman anymore drinks. If your policy was written down, we would be happy to just eat and go somewhere else to enjoy your drinks.
Serving top-notch cuts are our aim, so we're sorry to hear your meal was overly salted. We'd love the chance to work towards regaining your support, so we will be in touch via direct message. Best.
I’ve come to expect great customer service from fogo de Chao. In the past 4 years I’ve been to Fogo 2/3x a month and always had a great customer experience from Ronan and Sidnei. Today I had the displeasure of meeting Guilherme. What has been a very familiar place for my family and I, felt like a I was an unwanted guest into a strange place after a brief 20 second exchange with Guilherme.
We never want you to feel this way, as your loyalty and ongoing support have been greatly appreciated by our entire team. We want to make things right and work towards your satisfaction, so we'll be in touch via direct message soon. Best.
My partner and I were looking forward to this — we’d heard good things about Fogo (albeit from a few years ago). Hot there about 30 minutes early. I asked, politely, if there was a possibility of seating early. The hostess snapped, “We’re really busy now. Come back at your reservation time” and then ignored us. Not a great start.
We returned at our reservation time. We had to wait another five minutes but we’re eventually seated. First thing we noticed was the noise level. This restaurant is loud. We were at a small table for two and had to raise our voices to hear each other.
Food: The shrimp cocktail was nice, although nothing terribly special. The buffet was typical for a Brazilian steak house. When we flipped out cards over was when we were disappointed. Every cut of meat was so salty that we went through two bottles of water. The sausage wasn’t salty but was so over cooked as to be crunchy. We tried several cuts before we gave up.
Service: Order what you need for the whole night when you first sit down, because you may never see your server again. It took several minutes to find our server and order another bottle of water; then they forgot about it and we had to find them a second time. Unacceptable for a decent restaurant. When we were done, it was ten minutes before we could find our server to get the check. This combined with the poor hostess response makes me think they don’t have enough staff.
Value: I’ve had MUCH better meals elsewhere in Seattle for the same price. I don’t know if they’re taking advantage of being on the Eastside to hike their prices, but I didn’t feel that I got good value for money.
Overall: Not Recommended. There are other Brazilian steakhouses on OpenTable that are much better and give you a better date experience. Try one of the other ones instead.
Your experiences with us should always be wonderful and leave you completely satisfied, so it's disappointing to read your opinion. We'd love to work towards earning your support, so we'll be sure to send you a direct message. Thank you.
Had reservations for a birthday and called to notify I will be a little late. Was told it was fine as they were running behind on tables. When I arrived I was ignored for about 10mins until I walked up to someone assertively to get their attention. Had 10 people go in before I was called including someone that arrived after I did. When asked how their reservations work I was told that everyone that arrived first goes in before I do although I was told I was next. It will be 5 mins and when a table opens (all lies). Reservations are a joke they do a first come first serve. Don’t acknowledge you and customer service was horrible. Will not be going back.
We're sorry to hear we kept you waiting, as our team should always seat our guests in a prompt manner. We'd love the chance to deliver you a better time, so our team will be in touch via direct message to invite you back. Best.
Best birthday dinner! We all had a good time and enjoyed the food. Our waiter was knowledgeable on the menu and super friendly.
We made a reservation and had to wait nearly 30 minutes before even being seated. The restaurant was extremely crowded (which surprised us given the current state of things). Both times we ordered drinks, they service staff said they were "out" then brought us a bottle that was three times as expensive as the one we ordered by mistake. I'm sure they would have opened it had we not have been paying attention. The cost of dinner was astronomical for the experience we received. There are far better options in Bellevue.
We always want our guests to leave impressed with their Fogo de Chão experience, so it's disheartening to learn we let you down. We hope that you'll consider giving us another chance to provide you with a 5-star experience in the future. Best.
My husband and I have dined at this Fogo location since it opened. The food and gauchos are excellent. Rachel always greets us with a warm smile and welcome. The entrance can sometimes be a bit crowded, but the experience is always worth the visit. Tonight was no exception, and fantastic as always!
Food was amazing. Service was great. Table wait was quite long but it was worth it in the end.
Overall, it was just alright. The meat for the most part was cooked well, however it all taste the same. The pork ribs they brought around were way overdone and dry though. The side/salad bar was nothing to write about either. The best part of my meal honestly was the drink I got...we’ll be passing on this restaurant moving forward.
We take pride in the experiences we offer here at Fogo de Chão, so please know, we are disappointed in your opinion. Our team hopes you decide to award us a second chance in the future.
Great foood experience.
The way they arranged the seating during Covid sucksX we got put basically in a hallway where everyone has to pass by in order to get to the bathroom.
The waiter seemed very knowledgeable about allergens but the staff that came around with the meat didn’t speak great English and didn’t cater to the allergies at all.
Some of the meat was perfectly cooked, some was definitely over cooked or just not great cuts (tendons, mostly fat with no meat, etc).
I’d go again because it’s a cool experience but I’d hope for a better showing next time.
Our cuts should always be tender and delicious, so we apologize for missing the mark on your recent visit. We hope you decide to give us another chance down the line, as we know we can earn your 5-stars.
The restaurant was very busy and loud making conversation difficult. Our server pulled his mask away from his face in order to talk to us, very disconcerting. Tables were closer than 6’ from each other, so we weren’t distanced from other patrons as we ate unmasked. The servers with the meat kept walking right by my son’s green card when mine was turned to red - although the meat was definitely the star of the meal. My glass of wine took ages to arrive. The salad bar portion of the meal was mediocre. I had originally booked for my wedding anniversary, but due to a conflict ended up taking my 14 yo to his first meal out since Covid. I have eaten out throughout Covid due to work travel, and this was by far my worst and most uncomfortable experience. Very glad I can book somewhere else for my anniversary and very upset with myself for taking my 14 yo somewhere that so clearly was not taking Covid seriously and putting him at any risk for such a mediocre meal.
Our team apologizes for these inconveniences, Phil, as we are here to deliver a top-notch dining experiences. It is our hope that you visit us again, as we are sure we can do better.
For starters, our server was absolutely delightful, nothing but wonderful things to say on the server we had. He was very friendly and conversational. The drinks were also delicious. We’ve been to many Brazilian steakhouses across the country including the one right across the water in Seattle- The Grill From Ipanema and to me the food quality at Fogo De Chao was just not great at all. We came here on a date night, which is rare for us to have as new parents, so we wanted it to feel special and the ambiance was terrible. They seated us in a terrible location all the way in the back near where servers were going back and forth to service a conference room. It took a ridiculously long time to be seated as well, even though we had a reservation. I’m not sure if we just picked a bad day to go but I wish they had a better dress code. Customers were dining with jeans and shirts that had camouflage, large guns and USA written all over them. Other customers were eating with their hands instead of with the provided cutlery. It felt like an extremely tacky ambiance with the dress code and behaviors allowed instead of an elevated dining experience. They brought very cheap cuts of meat repeatedly instead of the more traditional ones. The cuts they did give off sirloin etc were huge pieces instead of thin slices and were practically inedible and full of gristle. The filet mignon was cooked poorly. The linguica, which I normally look forward to at Brazilian steakhouses, was extremely dry, overcooked and bland. I get that this is a “chain” steakhouse but for Bellevue I still expected better for spending $200+ on dinner for two. I likely won’t return but if we ever do we will be sure not to come on a date night.
We're sorry for this, as our ambiance should always be relaxing and enjoyable. We'd love the chance to work towards regaining your support, so we will be in touch via direct message. Best.
Great environment and food. Filled at 100% capacity.
Went for 50th birthday 8 of us, drinks completely messed up, wait times for drinks was unbelievable and yet still each time they came incorrect, charged for premium when didn’t order the premium. The meat was all pouring blood hardly any choice at all my friends wasn’t impressed. Covid it was more like a nightclub rave everyone squashed in so close just so they can get more custom and over charge you for things you didn’t order!!! I’ll be leaving a Yelp and Google review in more depth about how this place has gone downhill. Wouldn’t ever bother again money scam this place!!!
We apologize for falling short of your expectations, as birthdays are very important to us. Your feedback will be shared with the entire team, and we will be sure to reach out via direct message, in hopes of making this right. Thank you.
All the steaks were okay some were too salty. Chicken would have been great but over cooked, dry and feels like eating cardboard. Anyway server was excellent.
Sooooooo amazing. The staff is top notch and the food is to die for.
Outstanding flavors and high quality beef. Very fast service from the gauchos.
Many people ignored the mask rules around the salad area.
Birthday Party. Loved it.
It was a very good dinner with friends
